Mr. Yuan's Dilemma: Can't Help Falling In Love With You Chapter 1
Inside Luo Hai City's Female Detention Center was a dark and cramped prison cell!
The damp and cold autumn breeze seeped into the prison cell through the cracks of the window. A gust of cold air blew against the face of a woman sitting in the cell. She shivered, and lifted her head up from her knees.
Today was a special day...
"Number 238, you can leave today! Bring your number plate to the ticket counter to collect your documents and belongings!"
The prison guard's cold voice sounded, echoing terrifyingly inside the void prison cell!
As the prison guard urged her to hurry up, a hint of energy flashed through Mu Chenyan's cold eyes.
Hearing news of her freedom, the woman who had supposedly "died" for 723 days seemed to be gradually regaining consciousness!
She got up grudgingly and tidied the crumpled clothes on her. Her fine black hair hindered her vision, and she tucked it behind her ears.
Her ever-pallor complexion got paler.
The morsel of nutrition provided in prison meals was far from enough to keep up with the surging waves in her heart at this moment.
She felt a little dizzy. She murmured in acknowledgment to the guard's words and did not react further.
The female prison guard frowned and could not help but to size up the ghastly pale-looking Mu Chenyan who was in front of her.
Even before she started working in this prison, she had heard rumors that a legendary figure was being kept inside here. Could that person be the one in front of her now?
Although the woman was just wearing a common prisoner attire, it could not hide the strong presence and aura that was radiating from within.
Her big eyes were ethereal like dark-jade as if they were embedded onto her small face, giving her features an indescribably beautiful yet sorrowful look.
The common and "fashionable" hairstyle in prison -- a short bobbed hairstyle seemed messy but extraordinarily beautiful on her!
Noticing the prison guard sizing her up, Mu Chenyan lips curled up slightly.
She may be a natural beauty, but her smile was heart-wrenchingly dark and cold, making one's heart ached for her.
This newly employed prison guard would not have known that two years ago, this woman used to have a cheery and gentle disposition. She had a cinnabar mole at the corner of her eye, and when she smiled she looked like an angel who had accidentally fell from the sky!
Two years ago, news of Mister Yuan Xuan of Luo Hai City's renowned family marrying Miss Mu Chenyan from the Mu Family were headlines for an entire week!
However, a scandal occurred on the day of the wedding when a mysterious package was sent over by somebody anonymous. To everyone's surprise, a baby's corpse treated with liquid nitrogen was found in the package...
A biopsy was conducted and results showed that the corpse was a six-month-old baby boy!
Shu Qinger, the mother of the baby corpse, was found dead inside a luxury condominium nearby a hotel managed under the Mu Family's business...
Everyone in Luo Hai City knew that Shu Qinger was the childhood friend of Yuan Xuan, the groom!
Therefore, a woman's irrational jealousy drove her to cruelly murder her fianc's mistress and his illegitimate child. This version of a rumor started spreading like wildfire on the streets!
At that time, those in the upper society were also greatly shocked!
Yuan Family, the top noble family in Luo Hai City with hundreds of years of foundation. Along with their ancestor's previous deeds and this generation's established business empire, Yuan Family's every single move would directly affect the economy of the entire Southeast Region!
Who would have thought that the First Lady of the Yuan Family would do something so cruel on her wedding eve?
Moreover, the news that spread fast across the city did not stop at that. The week-long headline changed to the First Lady being a psychopathic murderer...
Mu Chenyan was 22 years old at that time and in just an hour, she turned from being the First Lady to a prisoner!
Furthermore, it was the day of her long-awaited wedding!
Brother Xuan, the man that she was willing to tail around ever since she was a little girl watched quietly as she was taken away by the police for an investigation.
The odd look on his face was hard to figure out!
As his so-called "childhood friend" suffered a tragic death, his newlywed wife was being arrested!
All that this arrogant and cold man left for Mu Chenyan was the figure of his back without any affection!
It was only after a week later at the detention center that Mu Chenyan finally saw Yuan Xuan for the first time!
"Brother Xuan, I didn't kill anyone..."
Mu Chenyan started sobbing uncontrollably when she saw Yuan Xuan's handsome face on the other side of the detention center's window!
Yuan Xuan's cold gaze got slightly darker as he stared at Mu Chenyan. He remained silent seeing how dreadful she had become in just one week!
His usual cold and arrogant demeanor were not affected at all, not even when his newlywed wife was being wrongly accused.
In the following 700 days, Mu Chenyan constantly recalled the single sentence that he said that day.
"Chenyan, you should have accompanied Qinger into hell!"
