Yun Xiao was about to leave, but his footsteps halted upon hearing Xue Rou'er mention Yun Luofeng's name. His cold eyes slowly turned to her.

Seeing him walk toward her, Xue Rou'er thought he was successfully bewitched by the Amortentia poison. Joy entered her heart, and the expression on her face grew softer.

"Young Master Xiao, if you're willing to marry me, you will learn that I'm not inferior to Yun Luofeng. I will only be more outstanding than her." She was gently smiling as she slowly walked toward Yun Xiao.

With every step that brought her closer to Yun Xiao, her heartbeat would increase a beat. She was foolishly staring at his cold face, which unwittingly took her breath away once more, and she harshly swallowed.

If she became Yun Xiao's wife, how happy and blessed will her life be?

"Young Master Xiao, my leg is a bit weak, can you lend me a hand?"

Xue Rou'er softly smiled, her arm extending toward Yun Xiao as her body also fell into the man's embrace. However, just as her hand was around to make contact with Yun Xiao's wrist, the sharp glint of a sword suddenly flashed. In the blink of an eye, her hand, which did not touch Yun Xiao yet, was chopped off.

"AH!" An anguished cry resounded in the air, shaking the entire Ye residence.

At the same time, Xue Rou'er falling body did not have any support and heavily fell on the ground. Fresh blood spurted from her cut arm, dying the entire courtyard red.

"You... you weren't affected?" Xue Rou'er eyes were wide open, and her ashen lips started to tremble.

How was it possible? She already tested the Amortentia poison that woman gave her several times! It succeeded every time, so why wasn't this man bewitched by her?

Why?

Why was it like this...

"What happened?"

Just as Xue Rou'er was about to faint, an astonished voice was heard from behind.

Closely following, a group of people with Ye Jingchen and his wife as the leaders all walked inside the courtyard. There was even a group of guards surrounding the entire courtyard.

Yun Luofeng swiftly strode to Yun Xiao's side and swept her eyes across Xue Rou'er, who was laying in a puddle of blood. She instantly understood what occurred here.

"Rou'er!" Ye Qi caught sight of Xue Rou'er as well and shouted in surprise before hurriedly walking to her side.

"Rou'er, your hand... what happened?"

Due to an excess loss of blood, Xue Rou'er was incredibly pale. She looked at Yun Xiao with trembling lips.

"Xue Rou'er," Jun Fengling already recovered her wits and walked to Xue Rou'er with a cold smile, "didn't I already say that you aren't allowed to take a single step out of the woodshed? You also aren't permitted to appear inside the main court. It looks like some people disobeyed my orders and released you!"

Ye Jingchen understood Jun Fengling's words and immediately sent two people to bring the two guards charged with watching over Xue Rou'er. After all, Xue Rou'er appearance here certainly did not escape connections with them.

"Foster Mother, Rou'er is already like this. Shouldn't we treat her first?" Ye Qi nervously rubbed her sleeves, tears nearly dropping down.

"Qiqi, it's none of your business here!" Jun Fengling glanced at Ye Qi. "If you want to stay here and watch the development of this situation, then shut up. Otherwise, I'll have to send you away immediately."

Ye Qi was briefly taken back and kept quiet. She never dared to disobey Jun Fengling's orders.

Jun Fengling did not grace Xue Rou'er and Ye Qi with another look and looked at Yun Xiao, "Xiao'er, tell Mother what happened. Mother will certainly give justice to Feng'er and you."
