As expected, Wen Shi Qing came back to his senses and already had a sunken face. But he still had some sense and only asked in a deep voice: “Ruyi, is what this person said true?”
The blush of color on Wen Ruyi’s face had long since faded cleanly.
No matter what, she did not expect that Gu Lin Chao’s arrival would give her such a fatal blow.
Xue Zi Yu, this foolish person, had fallen into Gu Lin Chao’s hands and betrayed her completely.
But at this time, how could she admit it?
“No, I didn’t, it wasn’t me ……”
A crisp slap sounded, interrupting her words.
“Good! Wen Ruyi, our Wen family has always treated you well, but we have raised such a white-eyed wolf like you.” Xu Shi was so angry that her eyes turned red and she grabbed Wen Ruyi’s arm and scolded her angrily.
She dared not imagine what would have happened to Qi Qi if she fell for Wen Ruyi’s trick and got involved with that man.
Not to mention the issue of reputation, with Gu Lin Chao’s tactics, he would not let Wen Qi Qi go.
The more Xu Shi thought about it, the more afraid she was, and at this moment she really wanted to tear Wen Ruyi apart.
Wen Ruyi was hit and turned her face away, not reacting for a long time.
Although she was the adopted daughter of the Wen family, she was loved by the Old Lady, so since she was a child, she had been well-clothed and surrounded by servants and maids. She had never suffered the slightest bit of hardship, but today, she was hit in the face by Xu Shi in public, and now she was momentarily dumbfounded by the blow.
When she reacted, she did not care about the humiliation in the moment, and hurriedly used her killer weapon, saying helplessly and pitifully with tears streaming down her face, “Mother, I didn’t. You can’t condemn me just because of this person’s one-sided words.”
Xu Shi had always been a soft-hearted person. If it were an ordinary day, seeing Wen Ruyi in such a pitiful way, I am afraid that her heart would have been softened already, but this time, when it comes to her precious daughter, she only feels that Wen Ruyi’s behavior is really repulsive.
“The facts are in front of you, how dare you deny it? If you didn’t do it, how come he didn’t go talk about others and came to talk to you? The Regent doesn’t have a lot of time on his hands, so he can’t be bothered with framing a little girl like you. Loving and caring for your sister? How dare you say that!” At this moment, Xu Shi’s usually gentle and dignified appearance was no longer there, and she was furious, like a lioness protecting her cubs.
Wen Qi Qi blinked her eyes and was touched by the warmth in her heart.
She grew up in an orphanage in her previous life, and this feeling of being protected by her loved ones was something she had never experienced. Although it felt strange, it was really nice and not bad.
But such a good family met an extremely miserable end in the original book ……
Although tonight, she perfectly escaped the crisis, the crisis of the Wen House was not yet relieved.
Just because Wen Ruyi, the adopted daughter, is always a scourge.
She harbors a wicked heart. In the original book, not only did she cause the death of the original owner, but she also ruined the Wen family.
Therefore, as long as Wen Ruyi does not die, the crisis of the Wen family cannot be lifted, and she is likely to continue on the old path of the original owner.
But getting rid of Wen Ruyi is not that easy.
The reason is that Old Lady Wen values Wen Ruyi so much that even the adoption of Wen Ruyi was her idea.
“Lu Qiao, was this person, the one who was just with Third Miss at the back door?” At this time, Wen Ting Xuan pointed at Xue Zi Yu on the ground and opened his mouth to ask.

Yeah… But how to permanently get rid of a sly evil white lotus???
Sadly this evil white lotus is sooooooo persistent but our main leads are really smart!
TBH I think it was one sided. lol I probably wouldn’t judge this based on one person’s testimony. I’d have investigated this incident more thoroughly, in case, she was really framed. lol the mother just starts slapping her step daughter, perhaps Wen Ruyi’s past behaviour already gave here a shadow of doubt. Or… haha well she is cannon fodder, and this is a face slapping novel
