Gu Yan understood that he overreacted after hearing Su Xi's name. But it wasn't in his hand. This happens to own its own.
He composed himself again and adjusted his coat. He calmly replied, "I was shocked that they went there without a warrant. Isn't police being useless nowadays?"
Lin Juwan concentrated back on his work and just replied with a 'hmm.'
But Gu Yan felt an uneasiness in his heart. His thoughts were still on what Lin Juwan said about Su Xi.
'Is she alright? Does she needs any help?'
He excused himself from Lin Juwan and went to the washroom. There, took out his phone and searched for the number from which Su Xi mostly calls.
But Gu Yan was hesitant. Will it odd if he called right now? Won't she ask how he knows about him?
Thinking about this, he put his phone back into his pocket. He will not have answers to her question. So it is better not to talk to her.
'God, help her.'
But maybe, luck wasn't with Su Xi and Gu Yan's prayers weren't answered.
A more big storm was coming and this was arranged by none other than Lu Juwan himself.
After Gu Yan left, Lin Juwan called his secretary.
"Help me leak one information to press."
"There was a house search at Su Family's head, Su Xi's house. This will reduce her chance of winning the medicine project."
"But sir, her reputation will be tarnished a lot by this. If she gets to know..."
"Who is there to tell her? You? Or Me? Or Gu Yan? No one. We all need profit and our profit is in Su Family's downfall."
"I will do it, sir."
In Su Family, Su Xi was doing her work. She was working on the maps that once Ye Huo made and used to transport.
It was a difficult one though. He wrote everything in keywords so that no one understands it. His technique was good but who knew in the future, she will need them?
But then, her phone rang.
"Turn on the television or open WeChat. You and your family are trending everywhere." Su Xi narrowed her eyes after listening to this. She didn't get what he wanted to say so she turned on the television.
Su Xi was shocked!!
How did the house search thing get out?!?
"Su Xi, clean up this mess. I can't give you my things till the time you aren't cleared." Rex said but Su Xi barely listened to him.
Her main focus was on the news only.
'HOUSE SEARCH IN SU FAMILY! IS SU FAMILY INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL THINGS?'
'LATEST NEWS- SU FAMILY TO BE IN LEGAL TROUBLE!'
'SU XI USED WRONG MEANS TO RISE HER COMPANY?'
'POLICE FOUND DRUGS IN SU FAMILY.'
'SU FAMILY HEIR, SU XI MURDERED SOMEONE? CRIME BRANCH INVOLVED.'
Seeing this news, Su Xi's blood boiled! There was surely a house search but who said they found anything?
Until now, she always saw that press people add their own beliefs too in the story but this much? Can't they let one person live in peace?
In anger, she broke the remote control of the television.
"Muma... What is this coming? Why someone wants to destroy our reputation?" Ye Nian asked worriedly.
"Someone leaked the information intentionally." This was the only possibility Su Xi can find.
"Mom, was it the officer who came? He was already not happy with us. Maybe he is behind this." Ye Shing came downstairs and suggested.
"No. It is not him. There are some major protocols that the crime branch has to follow. In this, not only us but the crime branch will have to come forward and answer."
"What do you mean, mum?"
"It was not him. It is someone else who wants to destroy us. Someone is more interested in disclosing out family's happenings in media."
Before she could have continued, she received a call from someone whom she was not expecting to contact her at all.
