"You can rest assured that I have my people keeping a close watch on the Gu family house. If anything happens, I will know at once, " said Officer Zhang calmly. "Mr. Gu, I understand how you feel now. Wendy Ye has been arrested. If she is a murderer, we will bring her to justice. Please leave everything to us."

"I see, thank you, Officer, " said Aron in a despondent voice.

Due to various procedures, the case could not be immediately investigated. This was especially hard for him when he knew that Wendy clearly killed his father.

Meanwhile, Yvonne had been cleaning up the room for a long time, but she was too afraid to go into the backyard and do what her mother had asked her to do.

She was so worried about Wendy that, after some serious consideration, she decided to ask Autumn for help.

When the phone rang, Autumn was ready to go to bed. Her first thought when she found that it was Yvonne calling, was to ignore it. But after a dozen rings, she picked it up.

"What?" Her tone was cold and irritated, as if she was talking to an enemy.

"Autumn, I beg you to help me, " Yvonne blurted out. The annoying little half-sister had climbed down from her high horse, because, at this moment, the only person that she could think of who could help her was Autumn. At any rate, Autumn was Wendy's daughter, too, and she believed that she would never turn her back on Wendy.

Autumn paused, wondering if she had heard her wrong. "What did you say? You beg me?"

It surprised her that Yvonne, who had always been proud and defiant, would beg her.

"Cut the crap. I really need your help. It's about mom." Yvonne clutched the phone, her voice quivering.

Autumn frowned. "I was done with her days ago. She's your mom, not mine. If you call me for her, sorry, I can't help you. I'm hanging up now."

"Are you really going to be so cold, Autumn Ye?" Yvonne cried quickly.

"Hmmm, Autm

umn looked repulsively at the person she used to willingly call mother and said, "If you really are innocent, I'll do what I can to get you out of here."

Then she turned around and left. Out in the hall, she saw Aron sitting on a bench. She hurried over to him.

With his head down, Aron looked so much at a loss and so depressed that Autumn did not know what to say. Hearing her footsteps, Aron looked up at her and forced a smile. "You've seen her."

"Yes." Autumn sat down beside him. "Are you... "

"Don't worry. I'm fine. This time I'll definitely make that bitch pay for her actions for blood. She must not be allowed to escape justice again, " Aron said, gritting his teeth.

"Aron, is there... a misunderstanding?" Autumn asked after much hesitation.

"A misunderstanding? What do you mean?" Aron couldn't believe what he was hearing.

"I know she goes overboard sometimes, but... I still don't think she could have done such a crazy thing. I mean, this is cold blooded murder, we are talking about. So I wonder if there's something wrong." Autumn summoned up the courage to speak her mind. Wendy, after all, was still her mother. "If there's no proof of her murder, do you think we can get her out of here? She's too old to be locked up like that."
