So that’s how it was.
Ning Chen looked at the old man sitting in the interrogation room. He could see the ruthless traces of time on his body.
“Let me do it.” After saying that, Ning Chen asked Chief Li for the procedures and then walked into the interrogation room.
“Liu An, do you know me?” Ning Chen asked.
The man looked at Ning Chen for a long time and then shook his head.
Ning Chen smiled faintly. “Speaking of which, Ning Cheng is my uncle. When I was young, I heard from my grandfather that there was some resemblance between us. When you saw me, didn’t you think of him?”
When Ning Chen suddenly mentioned Ning Cheng, Liu An’s body trembled violently, but soon, he returned to his calm appearance.
Ning Chen didn’t care, he continued, “Back then, my uncle treated you as a good brother. Although he had to hide his identity, he should have treated you well, right? I didn’t expect him to die in the hands of his good brother.”
Liu An gripped his hand tightly and remained silent.
Ning Chen shook his head and sighed, “However, you didn’t end up well after killing him. All your money has been spent on treating your daughter’s illness. If it wasn’t for this reason, you wouldn’t have blackmailed Ning Jie, right? But the law won’t show mercy. This time, you’ll probably go to jail until you die. What do you think your daughter should do? She needs the treatment. And her daily expenses reach at least ten thousand dollars. If she doesn’t have the money, all she can do is to wait for her death.”
Liu An suddenly raised his head, and a hint of panic finally appeared in his eyes.
“What are you trying to say?!” Liu An’s tone was agitated and indignant. “Why haven’t you let me go yet?!”
Ning Chen stood up abruptly and said coldly, “Let you go? Did you let Ning Cheng go back then? And you also knew about my parents’ death, right? How many lives have you taken? Have you ever thought about them?!”
Liu an collapsed on the chair and said with a bitter smile, “Yes, this is my retribution, but God should just punish me. Why should Tian Tian suffer too? She’s only thirteen years old!”
Liu An sobbed bitterly.
“Although your life is hopeless, I can help you take care of your daughter. I am the heir of the Ning family. I can afford your daughter’s medical expenses. I can even send her abroad for treatment. If she is cured, I will give her the best education and let her live her life openly without fear of judgement.” Ning Chen deliberately emphasized the words “openly”.
Liu An was a little absent-minded, as if he had remembered something.
He remembered that Tian Tian had been living with him among the garbage heap ever since she was little. Sometimes, the food she ate was thrown away by others.
He had to live in the shadows for his whole life, living like a mouse.
But Tian Tian was innocent.
She had the right to live openly.
“You, what do you want to know…” Liu An did not say much when talking to smart people. He lowered his head dejectedly, and his tone carried a sense of resignation, “I’ll confess everything. I only ask you… to take care of my daughter.”
Liu An confessed.
Ning Cheng’s death was finally cleared.
He did not remember his actual name. He had lived in the Ning family for more than ten years as Zhang Dong. On one hand, he was the liaison between the organization and the Ning family. On the other hand, he was also there to monitor Ning family’s every move.
“The person who was involved in the drug trafficking between the Ning family and the organization was Ning Jie,” Zhang Dong said, “He wanted money because he wasn’t the real heir of the Ning family. He wasn’t willing to give up. In order to have a chance to rise to the top, he cooperated with the organization. After two business deals, he made more than a billion dollars. After tasting the sweet, sweet rewards, he started to use the Ning family’s power in M City to help organize the drug trafficking.
“Later, Ning Kang and his wife sensed something was wrong. They traced it to Ning Jie. Ning Kang kept trying to persuade Ning Jie to turn back.”
Hearing his parents’ names, Ning Chen’s body trembled faintly. He almost couldn’t control his breathing. His chest started to swell and ache, and something was buzzing in his mind.
“Ning Jie agreed on the surface, but he secretly told the organization that Ning Kang and his wife were going to expose his cooperation with the organization. The organization was also worried that the matter would be exposed. In the end… They were going to work together with Ning Jie to get rid of Ning Kang. I’m not too sure about the specifics of the matter as I didn’t directly participate in the operation because at that time, I discovered that Ning Cheng’s identity wasn’t quite right. I focused my attention onto him.
“Later, Ning Cheng’s identity as a police officer was exposed. I had no choice. Although we were still good friends, I had to get rid of him under the orders of the organization. I still remember that before he died, he told me that his father insisted on setting him up on a blind date. Then he thought that the young lady on the blind date was quite cute. He told me that if there was a chance, he wanted to have another meal with that young lady…
“That’s when I killed him.”
Zhang Dong covered his face and shed tears. “This is my retribution. It’s all my karma.. I’m sorry, Ning Cheng. If there is an afterlife, I will be your slave for eternity to atone for my sins!”
