Meanwhile, in the ancestral shrine, Su Xin Zhen was trembling on her knees.
No matter what she said, no one believed what Su Mo Li had done to her, not even her mother!
She was afraid, afraid that Su Mo Li would come again today!
Nevertheless, her fears came true.
Su Mo Li was standing in front of her at some point, nibbling on an apple while looking at Su Xin Zhen with a smile on her face: “It seems that the lesson I gave you wasn’t enough, didn’t I tell you not to provoke me?”
With that, Su Mo Li squatted down, reached out and patted Su Xin Zhen’s face.
Su Xin Zhen shivered and looked at Su Mo Li incredulously.
She wanted to scream, but couldn’t make any sound.
“Are you afraid?” Su Mo Li couldn’t help but chuckle lightly, “Don’t worry, I won’t torture you today.”
“I will give you pleasure.”
As soon as Su Mo Li’s voice fell, Cheng Tao and Huang Fan jumped in, directly dragged Su Xin Zhen up, and slapped her one after another.
“I have heard Sister, that you especially like to slap people ah, then enjoy it.”
Su Mo Li said then left directly.
Cheng Tao and Huang Fan knocked Su Xin Zhen unconscious before letting her go. They then applied medicine to her swollen cheeks.
After Cheng Tao woke Su Xin Zhen up, Huang Fan gave the man in the shadows a look and left with Cheng Tao.
Immediately after, Su Xin Zhen’s screams were heard.
“Help! There’s a ghost! Help!”
Su Chen was once again called up and hurriedly came to the ancestral shrine, and saw Su Xin Zhen’s entire body lying on the ground, with a look of terror on her small face.
“Dad! Help me!” Su Xin Zhen pounced directly on Su Chen.
Li Qianshi busily looked around: “Zhen’er, Zhen’er, what’s wrong with you? Zhen’er?”
However, Su Xin Zhen hid in Su Chen’s arms and cried loudly.
Seeing this, Li Qianshi was heartbroken: “Master, Zhen’er has learned from her mistakes, please forgive her, look at her today, it makes my heart ache……”.
Su Chen touched Su Xin Zhen’s hair and sighed, “I have spoiled her since she was a child, so how can I not be distressed? It’s just that these days, Zhen’er has gone too far.”
“Yes, Master, I’ll be sure to discipline her well in the future. Master, let’s get a doctor for her first.”
Tears streamed down Li Qianshi’s face.
Su Chen naturally agreed and returned to Muidan Courtyard with Su Xin Zhen in his arms.
“What’s going on outside?” Old Madam Su was also woken up and asked.
Momo Ke was busy lighting an oil lamp and came in, “Old Madam, it’s Second Miss who has run into a ghost.”
“Run into a ghost?” Old Madam Su snorted, “I did not do anything wrong in my life, I’m not afraid of ghosts knocking at my door in the middle of the night.”
Momo Ke looked at Old Madam Su helplessly but didn’t say anything more.
“Let Nan Nan rest despite everything, don’t get her involved with these things.”
Old Madam Su commanded and went to sleep.
Momo Ke agreed and sent someone to Cui Zhu Courtyard.
The news was announced to Su Mo Li, who quirked the corner of her lips.
The next morning, Li Qianshi went to see Su Xin Zhen.
However, when she saw Su Xin Zhen crying, Li Qianshi was so distressed that she held her in her arms and comforted her.
After the maids went down, Su Xin Zhen raised her haggard face: “Mother, it’s Su Mo Li! She’s the one playing tricks! Mother, I won’t let her go! No!”
The heartbreaking voice made Li Qianshi furrow her brow.
“Mother, you have to believe me, it really is Su Mo Li!”
Su Xin Zhen was even more anxious when she saw that Li Qianshi was silent.
Li Qianshi looked into Su Xin Zhen’s eyes and stretched out her hand to touch Su Xin Zhen’s hair: “It seems that Su Mo Li can’t stay in the residence.”
Su Xin Zhen’s eyes lit up.
“Just take this time to send Su Mo Li out.”
“Zhen’er rest well, leave the rest to Mother.”
With that, Li Qianshi walked out.
Su Xin Zhen’s face was filled with gloom as she watched the back of Li Qianshi.
Three days later, Cheng Tao quickly came to Su Mo Li’s side and whispered a few words.
Su Mo Li raised her eyebrows, put down the orange in her hand, and spoke with a bit of lightness: “Finally, you’ve come, let’s go, let’s see how this stepmother of mine is doing.”
Ellie Note: Whatever these people did in the previous life, we shouldn’t forget that Su Xin Zhen is only 11 years old and would have turned out differently if she had better parents.
