The cops took over the threatening letters, turning their heads to look at Xia Xibei when they saw the writing on them.
“Did you write these?”
“No!” Xia Xibei shook her head immediately. “How could I write such things?!”
The cops nodded, believing in Xia Xibei’s innocence.
“It sure was her!” Liu Lixin stomped her feet in rage.
“Please keep quiet, we know what to do!” The cop shot her a glare.
“In order to prove my innocence, I could write it out for you!” Xia Xibei suggested.
The cops exchanged glances, then nodded.
It was great that she was taking the initiative to help them with the investigation.
“Come on then.”
Xia Xibei took a pen, ducked her head, and began writing down those words.
Upon finishing, the people quickly gathered around her, managing to draw a conclusion in no time.
“It wasn’t her.”
The handwritings were completely different.
“She might have written it with her left hand!” Liu Lixin refuted right away.
Xia Xibei kept quiet, switching to the other hand.
The words that she wrote looked totally different from the writing in the letters.
“I’m actually thinking… If I really wanted to threaten you without being found out, I should have printed the letters, shouldn’t I?” Xia Xibei spoke up gingerly.
The people nodded in agreement, “That’s reasonable!”
Who would be so foolish as to use their own writing? That was like inviting trouble towards oneself, wasn’t it?
“These letters weren’t written by her indeed,” the cop spoke up for Xia Xibei.
“Impossible!” Liu Lixin panicked. “I’m certain it was her! It was her who wanted to harm my children! She came all the way here to assault them!”
The cops couldn’t help but laugh. “You’re mistaken! She’s a hero who saved lives.”
Liu Lixin was stunned, then exchanged a glance with Xia Shahai as an ominous feeling crept into her heart.
“If not for her, your children might have suffered injuries too.”
“What? So she’s not here because you arrested her?”
The two of them exchanged a look, utterly perplexed.
The people burst into laughter.
“It was someone else who hurt the children. She was the brave soul who saved them!”
One of the cops turned the screen around and opened up a clip.
It was clear in the clip that a man was trying to hurt the students with a knife he had in his hand but was soon tackled by Xia Xibei.
After watching the scene, the two of them were stupefied.
“So really, you’re falsely accusing her!”
The station chief stood up and looked to them with a solemn expression. “As parents, not only did you not take proper care of your child, you even accused her of something she didn’t do. That’s totally appalling!”
The rest of them nodded in unison.
“Right! That could add up to blackmailing and assault! Even if you dislike the girl, you shouldn’t simply accuse her either!”
“So it’s true that your father will turn into a stepfather once he gets you a stepmother!”
“The girl is only seventeen, so she’s still not an adult yet. They can’t even play their part and raise her well, but now they’re talking nonsense!”
“How are they so heartless?”
Xia Xibei hung her head low as she listened to their comments, looking aggrieved.
This action pained their hearts even more.
Why did a great young lady like her have such cruel parents?
“I know you don’t want me to disturb your life, so you cut off all ties with me. I understood your reasoning too, so I never disturbed you. But I never thought you would think of me that way!”
She bit her lip and her voice shook with sorrow, as though she had gone through a great deal of suffering.
The people’s hearts couldn’t help but reach out to her, all of them shooting reproachful looks at the couple.
“Cut off all ties? Goodness! Parents like that are truly disgusting, aren’t they!”
“The girl isn’t even an adult yet!”
“Don’t you dare play the victim now!” Liu Lixin was extremely furious. “It must be you!”
“I know why you hate me so much. It’s because of the house, isn’t it?”
Xia Xibei’s words struck down like a bolt of lightning right out of the blue!
