Fan Lingxin found out who the woman was, based on her voice and her legs. "Isn't that... Sister Xinyue?"
Li Xia also figured it out and was in a state of confusion.
Hearing Fan Lingxin, Fan Yazhu hurriedly asked, "Who? Who is it?"
"Eh... Tang Xinyue, the daughter of the Tangs..."
With an agitated look, Fan Zhihao called for the security. "H- hurry and catch this woman!"
Tang Xinyue panicked as she kicked the air in an attempt to escape the situation.
"Uh, what do I do...?" With her inevitable detention nearing, Tang Xinyue started to think of excuses.
'Hmm, I definitely can't mention either of their names... maybe I can mention Li Xia's?
How about - wait, no, that doesn't make any sense. Maybe - no, not that either.'
As she contemplated, her body lowered further. The wood scratched her stomach through her dress.
"Ouch!" Only the upper half of her body remained in the attic.
A worried Fan Lingxin rushed to the attic, leaving Li Xia behind.
Li Xia watched as his wife ran away, with utter confusion prevalent on his face.
He waited as Tang Xinyue sunk deeper. The security guards set up a mattress under Tang Xinyue should she fall. After all, the roof was quite high up.
"There she is."
Tang Xinyue looked around the dark attic, hearing hurried footsteps walking toward her.
The continuous sound stopped when the floor creaked. "Be careful, this part's unstable."
Suddenly, a flashlight shined on her face, making her close her eyes.
With a hand over her face, she tried to look at the people that held the flashlight. She found the two familiar - they were the security guards she saw at the entrance of the mansion.
She also remembered them from her past life. These two were the only ones who treated her properly within the premise. Of course, that may have been because it was their job, but she felt a little touched seeing the worried expressions on their faces.
"Miss, are you okay?" One of them held out his hand and grabbed Tang Xinyue's.
"Ah, yeah, I'm fine..." Tang Xinyue answered as she panted.
The guard couldn't get a good look at the woman's face, but he was certain that she was the one he saw head toward the mansion before turning left.
"...Miss, how did you get in here?" As the guard tried to pull her up, he interrogated her.
Tang Xinyue showed a blank face as she kept her lips shut.
"Sister Xinyue!" Another set of footsteps headed towards the group.
"Me- I mean, Lingxin?" Tang Xinyue tried to look which direction the voice came from.
Fan Lingxin got closer and closer as she ran through the wide attic.
"Miss, wait, be careful-"
