Chapter 1185 Look At How Scared the Child Is

The moment Ling Sheng turned her head, she subconsciously wanted to close the door. However, when she met Wen Ruoshui’s eyes, she retracted her gaze. The atmosphere was awkward, and she did not know what she wanted to say.

Wen Ruoshui only glanced at the two of them before pushing open the door and walking into the room. The familiar scent that had long fused into her blood and bones seeped into the tip of her nose bit by bit, filling her vision with mist.

When Ling Sheng saw her enter, she knocked her head in frustration and bit her lip. It was over. Was she that stupid? Why couldn’t she do something so simple?

Song Yiyan glared at her and pointed at her. What a fool, the door was locked. Auntie Wen didn’t have a key, so how could she enter?

It was very quiet in the room. There was no sound at all except for the man’s light breathing, he was sleeping soundly. Wen Ruoshui stood quietly at the door. She wanted to lift her leg, but she realized that she couldn’t even take a step. Her vision was blurry.

The man on the bed was really too thin. He was so thin that he seemed to have lost all his flesh, leaving only a thin layer of skin.

The man on the bed was really pale. He was so pale that it was almost transparent. It almost seemed like a light touch would shatter him.

She knew that she should be resentful, and loudly interrogate him. Why did he do this to her? Why did he use death to deceive her!

However, at this moment, she felt as if her heart had been crushed into pieces. Other than the bone-piercing pain, she could not feel anything else. Ling Sheng and Song Yiyan huddled together, looking weak, pitiful, and helpless. They stared at the woman at the door for a long time before they finally walked towards the bed.

Her body was tense and every step she took seemed to require all her strength. When she was right in front of him, she stopped and looked down at the man on the bed.

Song Yiyan lowered her voice and said softly, "Aunt Wen has such a good temper. If it were me, I would definitely give your second uncle a big slap." She had been deceived for so long, and the man she loved had used his death to deceive her. No one would be able to accept that, she would hate him forever!

Ling Sheng glared at her, could she not talk nonsense now?

Ji Xing lowered his voice, but it was clear and powerful. "Don’t worry, I won’t lie to you."

Song Yiyan rolled her eyes at him. "Did I ask


Ji Xing’s handsome face darkened and his thin lips moved. Looking at the fierce woman in front of him, he could only sigh in his heart. This unromantic woman!

"If the two of you want to quarrel, go out and quarrel." Ling Sheng pushed Song Yiyan out and closed the door. The quiet space was left for the two of them in the room.

Song Yiyan was still a little worried. "What should we do? Do you think they’ll kill you when they come back?"

Ling Sheng glared at her, she conveniently pushed the blame to her. She gritted her teeth. "It’s the both of us, isn’t it?"

"There’s no use glaring at me," Song Yiyan said matter-of-factly. "I’m a guest. Your elders wouldn’t go so far as to lay their hands on an outsider like me. Even if they did, they would still kill you. Who told you to be so stupid?"

Ling Sheng really wanted to kill her, but what she said was the truth. She puffed up her cheeks and exhaled angrily. "But how did Auntie Wen know that the Second Uncle was in the house?" Song Yiyan was curious.

"Feelings." Ling Sheng sighed softly and lamented. "A woman’s sixth sense has always been very accurate."

Song Yiyan had never experienced this before, so she didn’t really understand. She nudged her and asked, "Have you felt this before?"

Ling Sheng replied, "It’s none of your business!"

When the doorbell rang, Ling Sheng was already prepared to be reprimanded. She couldn’t even complete such a small task.

When Huo Ci returned, he had brought some candied haws for Ling Sheng and the rest. When he heard that Wen Ruoshui had discovered Yan Yuanfei’s presence, his temper flared up and he was so angry that he almost threw the candied haws at her face.

"Sixth Brother, Sheng Sheng didn’t do it on purpose." Lu Yubai snatched the candied fruit away and shot Ling Sheng a look. What were they waiting for? They were looking for someone to help them!

Was this girl stupid? Shouldn’t she have gotten the three elders to protect her immediately after the incident happened?

"Sixth Brother, it has already happened. There’s no use getting angry." Rong Yin tried to persuade him. "Calm down."

"She’ll find out sooner or later anyway." Jiang Zhe let out a low sigh. In the end, it really is that man proposes but god disposes. Huo Ci glared fiercely at Ling Sheng. He saw her hiding behind Nangong Lengmo, and she peeped out with fear in her eyes. The anger in his heart dissipated a little as he scolded angrily, "Useless thing!" Ling Sheng knew she was wrong, but she did not dare retort. She bit her lip and sniffled timidly. You’re my father, so whatever you say is right!

She had indeed been negligent in this matter. Auntie Wen should have only suspected based on her intuition. She was not sure and could not possibly know. "What’s going on inside?" Huo Ci paced around anxiously as he looked in the direction of the bedroom. The door was tightly shut and there was no sound at all. He did not know what was going on inside.

"Why don’t you go in and take a look?" Jiang Zhe calmly took a sip of tea and lifted his eyes slightly to look at him. "Stop pacing around. I will be blinded by your pacing."

Huo Ci did not say anything, he turned his head and glared at Ling Sheng. She still had the cheek to eat candied haws, look at what she had done. The Second Brother had just instructed her not to let the Second Sister-in-law know.


Ling Sheng was chewing on the candied hawthorn when he glared at her. The candied hawthorn fell to the ground, and her big, aggrieved eyes were filled with tears.

Rong Yin could not stand it anymore. His heart ached as he pointed at Huo Ci and lectured him. "What are you glaring at? Look at how scared the child is."

Huo Ci said, "Brother, look at how old she is. She can’t even handle such a small matter!" Rong Yin passed a stick of candied hawthorn on the table to Ling Sheng and looked at Huo Ci. "How old is she? Is she older than you?"

Huo Ci choked, only to see the wretched girl leisurely nibbling on the candied fruit again. He glared at her again. "Big Brother, she’s…"

"Uncle." Ling Sheng bit her lip and looked like she was about to cry. She quickly sat beside Rong Yin, looking timid.

Rong Yin frowned and said in a deep voice, "That’s enough. You’ve already scolded her Iand what’s happened has happened. Sheng Sheng didn’t do it on purpose."

Huo Ci felt a lump in his throat. When he saw the brat looking up at him and smiling, he thought, she’s just pretending!

Lu Yubai did not know whether to laugh or cry. This father and daughter pair were clowning around!
