The Sickly Scion’s Petite Wife Is Sweet And Cool - Chapter 498 - 498 The Truth (1)
498 The Truth (1)
“Four months ago, my brother was seriously injured.” Xiao Ruoshui looked at the person opposite her who had eaten her fill and rubbed her stomach.
Shen Yijia nodded and summoned the waiter. She ordered the dishes she thought were delicious again.
Xiao Ruoshui’s eyes widened. “You’re not full yet?”
Shen Yijia blinked and said, “Pack it up.”
Xiao Ruoshui’s breath was stuck in her throat. In the end, she gritted her teeth. “Can’t you tell that I’m in a bad mood?”
Shen Yijia waved her hand and asked the waiter to quickly instruct the kitchen to cook. Then, she looked at Xiao Ruoshui, who was furious. “I know.”
Without waiting for her to finish, Shen Yijia quickly poured a cup of tea and stuffed it into her hand. She raised her eyebrows and said, “I guessed it. The benefactor who saved that woman was your brother. Then, that woman was disfigured because of your brother and even lost her marriage. She might not be able to get married in the future. With your brother’s personality, he will definitely feel responsible for her, right?”
Xiao Ruoshui nodded in a daze. “Why are you so smart?” she thought.
Shen Yijia smiled proudly. “I’ve thought of a way.”
Four hours later, Xiao Ruoshui returned home in high spirits and was dumbfounded.
In the courtyard, a row of bruised and battered guards knelt. From afar, one could hear the sound of whips whipping flesh coming from the main hall.
Xiao Ruoshui’s heart skipped a beat and she quickly walked in.
As expected, she saw her good brother kneeling there silently. Her father was waving his whip at him with a livid expression.
Two broken whips had even been thrown to the ground at the side. It was obvious why they were broken.
Her mother stood at the side and gritted her teeth to hold back her tears. She glanced at Xiao Ruoqian and her daughter’s happy expressions.
Xiao Ruoshui gritted her teeth in anger. Without thinking, she pulled out her long whip and blocked General Xiao’s whip.
The two long whips collided with a bang.
General Xiao was stunned and his tiger eyes widened. “How dare you?”
Xiao Ruoshui also widened her eyes. “Yes, I’m presumptuous. Father, do you want to beat Big Brother to death? Then don’t use a whip. Just cut him down to save your strength and chase Mother and me out. Anyway, you’re still young. It’s not difficult for you to work hard to give birth to a son with Aunt Qiao. When you’re old, he can inherit your mantle.”
With that, Xiao Ruoshui really took out a dagger and threw it at Xiao Qirui’s feet.
Madam Xiao’s lips trembled. She walked over and slapped Xiao Ruoshui’s back. “What nonsense are you talking about? That’s your biological brother.”
General Xiao was also furious. He loosened his grip and the whip fell to the ground. He pointed at Xiao Ruoshui and was speechless for a long time.
Auntie Qiao quickly went over and helped him sit down. She smoothed his back and served him tea. “General, calm down. Eldest Miss is still young and insensible.”
Xiao Ruoqian also went up to him. “That’s right, Father. I just feel sorry for Big Brother. I didn’t mean to disobey you…”
“Shut up, you two.”
“Shut up, you two.”
The father and daughter spoke at the same time. They looked at each other and snorted coldly before turning away.
Concubine Qiao and Xiao Ruoqian froze and their eyes turned red.
General Xiao was also dizzy from Xiao Ruoshui’s anger. He took a deep breath and waved his hand. “Concubine Qiao, go back to your courtyard with Qian’er first.”
“General,” Auntie Qiao bit her lower lip and called out indignantly.
No matter how nice it sounded in her room, General Xiao never let the mother and daughter be present when it came to serious matters.
It was because she was a concubine and her daughter was a concubine’s daughter.
He had always been very clear about the differences between the legitimate wife and the concubines.
General Xiao’s face darkened.
Auntie Qiao’s heart skipped a beat. She did not dare to dawdle anymore and pulled Xiao Ruoqian out of the main hall.
After they left, General Xiao slammed the table. “Do you know what good thing your brother did again?”
Xiao Ruoshui glanced at Xiao Qirui strangely and muttered, “How would I know?”
“Hmph.” General Xiao snorted and pointed at Xiao Qirui. “He injured the guard and ran out alone.”
“If you can attack your own people for that woman now, will you kill your father for that woman in the future?” The more General Xiao thought about it, the angrier he became. He stood up and kicked Xiao Qirui.
Previously, he had thought that if this unfilial son really couldn’t let go of that woman, he could agree to wait until Xiao Qirui married Yuan Yuwan before marrying that woman as a concubine.
After today’s incident, General Xiao had completely changed his mind. Not to mention a general who would lead troops into battle in the future, even an ordinary man could not be led by the nose by a woman.
