The old lady followed Jiang Yu and Mo Long to Hu Cheng. Jiang Yu was the one who arranged for her food, accommodation, and transportation.
Jiang Yu also knew that the old woman’s surname was Shen, so she called her aunty Shen.
In order to facilitate communication with the lawyer in the future, Jiang Yu arranged for aunty Shen to stay in the company’s staff dormitory. There weren’t many employees living there anyway, so there were plenty of empty rooms.
It just so happened that Mi Fei had been living there. After knowing Jiang Yu’s plan, she took the initiative to take care of aunty Shen.
Jiang Yu had contacted the best lawyer and basically discussed the case with her every day. Aunty Shen also participated and told the lawyer everything she knew.
The lawyer’s surname was Tang and she was a middle-aged woman in her thirties. Although she looked a little fierce, she was very gentle and treated aunty Shen like her own mother.
Jiang Yu printed out all the information on the case, organized it into a document, and handed it to lawyer Tang. She asked, “Ms. Tang, that’s all for the case. What are your chances of winning?”
Lawyer Tang touched her chin and said, “A conservative estimate is about 50%. And this is on the premise that there is conclusive evidence and witnesses. After all, this case has been in the past for so many years, and the final verdict has been recorded. It will be very difficult to reverse the verdict again.”
“So there’s only a 50% chance of winning,” aunty Shen said dejectedly.
“Aunty Shen, even if there’s only a 10% chance, we still have to give it a try. If we don’t try because the chances are too small, then wouldn’t the chances be less than 10% in the end?”
“I know.” aunty Shen said, “But if the chances are too low, I don’t want you to take the risk.”
“It’s alright, aunty Shen.” Jiang Yu said. “Don’t worry, you can stay at my place. Mi Fei will take you out on the weekends. Since I’ve promised you to help you solve this case, I won’t just ignore it. Even if there’s only a 10% chance, I’ll still try my best.”
Aunty Shen was so touched that tears welled up in her eyes. She held Jiang Yu’s hand and said emotionally, “Thank you. Thank you so much, little girl.”
“You’re welcome.” Jiang Yu said with a smile.
However, while dealing with the case, Jiang Yu also had to film a variety show during the weekend. It was indeed a little tiring to go back and forth between the two sides.
Sister Xia had originally looked at the comments on the internet and thought of getting Jiang Yu to temporarily withdraw from the variety show and wait for the comments to change before going back. It was not a show that could be completed in a short time anyways, so Jiang Yu would definitely have a chance to go back.
However, Jiang Yu said, “If I really don’t participate, wouldn’t that be what those people want? And the director didn’t tell me that I had to go, so I just acted like nothing happened and went to film.”
When sister Xia heard this, she no longer stopped Jiang Yu and planned to visit aunty Shen this weekend.
Sister Xia was about the same age as aunty Shen and had a daughter who was studying abroad. Therefore, she could empathize with aunty Shen’s feelings and treated her very well.
Jiang Yu went to the filming location. This week’s filming content was the ‘Contestants’ daily dance practice’. Although there had been a lot of small incidents during the last singing competition, it had still been a close call.
Sun Miao, on the other hand, was practicing with all her might. After all, she had gotten zero points in the last competition, so she wanted to put in more effort in the dance competition to win back some points.
However, this was only because she thought she was putting in the effort. Compared to the other contestants who didn’t eat or rest, Sun Miao only skipped through the video once before going to rest.
When the camera turned to her, she even deliberately put on a panting look and picked up a towel to wipe the non-existent sweat on her face.
“You seem to be practicing quite hard.” Jiang Yu smiled and looked at the phone that was still playing the video.
“That’s for sure, thanks to you, I didn’t get a single point in the last competition,” Sun Miao said unhappily. “If I don’t work hard in this competition, what should I rely on to make a name for myself?”
“I can see that you’re really working hard.” Jiang Yu said, “You’re already panting after practicing with the video once. I thought you couldn’t dance anymore.”
Sun Miao blushed and stammered, “W-what do you mean? Who said I only danced once? Can’t you see how tired I am? How could it have only danced once?”
“I’ve been standing at the door and watching you.” Jiang Yu pointed at the back door.
