 Chapter 821: The Death of Xue Rou'er (2)

Translator: Zen_ Editor: Rock

Just as Jun Fengling wanted to stand up for Yun Luofeng, a cold voice suddenly rung, "As my wife, even if she wrongly accuses you, you can only admit to it!"

The man's handsome face was as frigid and expressionless as always, and his eyes, as dark as night, icily stared at Xue Rou'er, freezing her in place and making her feel like a countless number of knives were cutting her.

His voice was as coldhearted as usual. "Besides, I don't think you have anything that would cause her to falsely accuse you!"

Xue Rou'er's face turned paler, and her body swayed a few times, nearly falling down. What enraged her more was that Ye Qi did not speak up for her at a time like this and simply allowed these people to bully her as they wished!

Ye Qi sensed Xue Rou'er's pleading gaze, and unconsciously lowered her head, abashed. If it was Ye Ximo, she would argue strongly for what was right in favor of Xue Rou'er, but she did not have the courage to oppose Ye Jingchen and Jun Fengling. Because her foster parents were who she respected the most!

She already rebelliously went against their wishes, how could she continue to speak in support of Rou'er? She could only wait until this matter was over to console Rou'er.

"Brother Ye," Jun Fengling did not bother to look at Xue Rou'er before turning to Ye Jingchen, "Send two people to watch over her. I don't wish for this woman to cause any more trouble in the Ye residence. Moreover, lock her up somewhere farther away from Xiao'er. Don't allow her to stay here and repulse people."

Jun Fengling clearly did not want Xue Rou'er to have a chance to get near Yun Xiao. Even if Yun Xiao would not like her, she would still find it repulsive.

Ye Jingchen gently smiled. Shortly after, he harshly shouted, "Guards! Escort Xue Rou'er away, and keep her under custody! She's not allowed to appear in the main court!"

Almost immediately, two guards walked inside and respectfully cupped their fists in salute, saying, "As you order!"

Seeing the two guards grabbing ahold of Xue Rou'er, Ye Qi hurriedly held her hand and quietly comforted, "Rou'er, don't worry, if it really wasn't you who set the house on fire, my foster mother will certainly clear your name. We will have to mistreat you a few days for now."

Xue Rou'er miserably smiled, but she did not respond to Ye Qi and followed the two guards outside.

Ye Qi did not notice the sinister light that flashed through her eyes in the blink of an eye. Instead, she was still terribly worried about her situation.

"Qiqi, why don't you go and rest?" Jun Fengling's voice did not have its initial indifference anymore and carried a trace of helplessness instead. "If Xue Rou'er truly falsely accused Huohuo, I won't easily let her off. Mentally prepare yourself."

Ye Qi jolted and turned to face Jun Fengling, "Foster Mother, if she really did that, then I can't forgive her either. However, I believe in her. Not only because she's my friend, but because her mother was also buried in this fire. She couldn't have used her mother's life to frame other people, right?"

She knew that they must have misunderstood Huohuo this time. However, this misunderstanding was not Rou'er's intention, she was ignorant too.

"In a world this big, there must be some people who are self-centered and don't care about their family at all." Jun Fengling's tone gradually became more aloof. "Perhaps you will understand it one day. Now though, retreat first and thoroughly reflect on your behavior over the past few days."

"Yes." Ye Qi bowed before leaving.

After the two people left, the atmosphere inside the main hall was still unable to recover its previous joy and harmony.
