“You can attack me. If you want me to die, you can harm me, haven’t you harmed her enough already? Give my mother back to me, give her back!” Lu Man beat up Lu Qi as if she had gone crazy.
Lu Qi had ruined her entire life and had even made her go to jail for eight years.
No outsider could imagine how she had survived those eight years.
As a newcomer, she had been bullied badly.
The prisoners in jail had formed cliques, and as women, they also had physical needs.
Since there were no men around, they found women to take their place, using both mouth and hands.
As Lu Man was a newcomer, she was naturally targeted.
Some people were scared of getting hit and hence resisted only a few times before giving in.
But she refused to. Even when she was beaten to the brink of death, she refused to give in.
She would rather endure physical pain than go and do such a thing.
Thankfully, later on, another female criminal called Mi Qiansong, entered the prison.
She had been imprisoned because she had indeed hurt someone. She had beaten up a man until he was crippled, and had even cut off the most important part to a man.
However, that was solely because that man and his subordinates had gang rapedher sister, and yet he had been imprisoned only for a few days before being released. He had not been properly punished for his heinous crime.
Since they could not give her justice, Mi Qiansong took matters in her own hand, seeking justice herself.
She was skilled in martial arts and had once been a martial arts teacher. She was righteous and very popular with people.
After entering the jail and learning about Lu Man’s situation, she befriended Lu Man, and since Lu Man now had her protection, she had an easier time in jail.
If it was not for Mi Qiansong, Lu Man would probably not have lasted these eight years.
It was because of her that Lu Man managed to learn some moves in prison.
Right now, she was using the moves taught by Mi Qiansong to keep a hold on Lu Qi.
It not only immobilized Lu Qi completely, but it also made He Zhengbai unable to save Lu Qi.
“Do you know that when I was in prison, the only reason that made me persevere on was that my mother was out there waiting for me? Yet you caused her death! She never harmed you nor did she stand in your way, so how could you? Return my mother to me!” Lu Man gave a shrill cry as if she wanted to cry her whole heart out.
But no matter what she did, her mother would never return.
She never even got a chance to see her mother for the last time.
Even until her death, her mother had to worry for her, and hence did not die peacefully.
Lu Man knew that just before her death, her mother was definitely very worried about her.
Clenching her teeth, Lu Qi just kept crying without saying anything. She really looked like she was the one who had been wronged, drawing pity from onlookers.
Of course, there was a reason, but she could not say it out. She had to maintain her image of the victim.
Lu Man had said that Xia Qingwei had never stood in her way?
How could that be true!
If it was not for Xia Qingwei, why would she have been talked about behind her back for so many years?
People gossiped that even though she was not Lu Qiyuan’s biological daughter, she was still more favored than Lu Man and had stolen everything that actually belonged to Lu Man, even stealing Lu Man’s place in the family.
But in reality, she was really Qiyuan’s daughter, his biological daughter, and thus an actual heiress to the Lu Family.
It was not that she had stolen Lu Man’s place.
Yet because of Xia Qingwei and Lu Man, all these years, she had been forced to suffer under people’s judging gazes.
They felt that even when she was not Lu Qiyuan’s child, she still received so much and thus she was just lucky.
When actually she didn’t receive it, she deserved all of it. Receiving it meant that she had just been lucky.
Yet these things originally belonged to her, but she could not tell anyone the truth.
She had suffered for so many years just because of Xia Qingwei and Lu Man!
So of course, she hated them to the core, in fact, she detested them!
Moreover, Lu Man always acted superior to her, she always emphasized that she was the real daughter of the Lu family and Lu Qi was nothing but just a step-daughter.
If not for Xia Qingwei and Lu Man, why would she have to endure it all those years?
Even though she utterly detested them, she still had to accept everything without protest.
She hated Xia Qingwei and she hated Lu Man.
She wanted them to die!
Now that Xia Qingwei was dead, she won’t let Lu Man go either!
