Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 723
Chapter 723: Elder Lin’s Testimony
Gu Zheng had long been disappointed in the Lu family. He did not care about the Lu family at all. To him, the Lu family was just an ant. As long as he wanted to, he could get rid of them at any time. He just wanted to restore his identity and make it known that he was Eldest Miss Lu’s son.
The Lu family was really shameless. Did they really think that they held so much weight in Gu Zheng’s heart? Gu Zheng did not care about the dignified Lu family at all!
Lu Yan suppressed the uneasiness in his heart. “Don’t act rashly. Let’s see what Old Master Lin says first. If the matter is really exposed, let Huang Lilan take all the blame herself.”
Lu Xiang hesitated for a moment. “Ah Yan, but she… She’s your mother…”
Lu Yan said coldly, “In this situation, we can only seek protection. We can only choose between her and the Lu family.”
Lu Xiang also knew that if the matter was exposed, it would implicate the Lu family. They could only choose to abandon Huang Lilan. But no matter what, Huang Lilan was Lu Yan’s mother. He actually pushed his biological mother out to take the blame without hesitation. Moreover, Huang Lilan had done many bad things all these years. If she fell into Gu Zheng’s hands, her outcome would definitely be very tragic.
Unexpectedly, the next second, Lu Yan’s words were even more shocking. “If this secret is exposed, we can only get rid of Huang Lilan. Otherwise, Gu Zheng will use my DNA and Huang Lilan’s for testing. This is very disadvantageous to me. If the secret isn’t exposed, I guarantee that she can still sit in this position.”
Lu Xiang widened her eyes as fear arose in her heart. Even though she knew that Lu Yan was doing all this to avoid future troubles, she could not help but sigh at how vicious he was.
After Elder Lin appeared, Huang Lilan’s face turned pale. Her body was trembling violently as she gritted her teeth to stop herself from shouting.
“Madam Huang, back then, I falsified a DNA test report according to your request. After doing such a thing, I received my retribution. I’m already in the late stage of lung cancer and don’t have much time left. Before I die, I want to make everything clear.
Huang Lilan’s fingernails had already dug into her palms. She had kept this secret for more than 20 years. She did not expect Elder Lin to expose it now.
After Huang Lilan screamed weakly, Elder Lin faced Gu Zheng and slowly said under everyone’s gazes, “I think President Gu is that child from back then! I’ve let you down. I… Cough, cough…”
“Elder Lin!” Huang Lilan shouted in horror, “The Medical Association wouldn’t have faked things!”
If they revealed what had happened back then, Elder Lin’s reputation would be completely ruined. The Medical Association would also be affected. Why should they pay such a huge price for Gu Zheng?
Huang Lilan’s body trembled violently as she scrambled in front of Elder Lin and begged in a low voice, “Elder Lin, you have to think carefully. Are you really willing to ruin the reputation you’ve accumulated for a stranger?”
Elder Lin took a deep breath, then he slowly looked up. “I don’t have long to live. This isn’t important to me anymore.”
“You!” Huang Lilan gritted her teeth in hatred.
Elder Lin’s voice was old. “Many years ago, I forged that paternity test report and made President Gu become Madam Huang’s son in everyone’s eyes. Throughout the years, I knew that President Gu wasn’t doing well. I’ve always felt very guilty. Today, I’ll make this matter clear in front of everyone!
“Gu Zheng is not Huang Lilan’s child!”
The moment that was said, the entire banquet hall exploded. If Gu Zheng was not Huang Lilan’s child, whose child was he?
Huang Lilan roared, “No! You’re framing me!”
Old Master Lu’s face was livid. He knew that he could not hide this matter and could only accept it helplessly.
Unexpectedly, Elder Lin suddenly looked at Old Master Lu and said meaningfully, “Gu Zheng is Eldest Miss Lu and Chairman Gu’s biological son. He’s also the legitimate eldest young master of the Gu family. Back then, Eldest Miss Lu asked me to test her and President Gu’s DNA. She didn’t know that I had already been bribed. Even until her death, she didn’t know that Gu Zheng is her child. I’ve let her down!”
A trace of danger flashed past Old Master Lu’s eyes. If he had known that this Elder Lin was a calamity, he would have gotten rid of him back then. That way, the evidence today would’ve never seen the light of day!
At this moment, everyone finally reacted and could not help but look at the Lu family.
If it was really as Elder Lin had said, that Eldest Miss Lu had asked him to test Gu Zheng’s DNA when she was still alive. However, he chose to swap Eldest Miss Lu’s and Huang Lilan’s DNA for money, causing Gu Zheng to become an illegitimate child. In that case…
