Chapter 1073: Leave a little face
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Ye Mufan hastily stepped forward and scoffed at Liang Meixuan. “You’re clearly the one who put it in there yourself! You’re intentionally framing Wanwan!”
When Ye Yiyi heard him, hurt surfaced on her face. “Mufan, how could you say that…”
Liang Meixuan was full of contempt. “Yiyi, look at this! See how you kept defending them! In the end, not only did they steal your ring and refuse to admit it, but they also hurled the blame back at us!”
All the guests were looking at Ye Mufan and Ye Wanwan with disgust and distaste.
Ye Hongwei and Tan Yi Lan also looked terrible. If it was an insignificant matter, it could be forgiven. However, not only did Ye Wanwan commit theft, but she also stole from her own family…
When Liang Shihan saw that the ring was discovered in Ye Wanwan’s handbag, she was overjoyed and immediately exclaimed, “I knew it! I told you she stole it! Who else here today would do such a lowly and deplorable thing besides her?!”
Ye Yiyi said, “We’re a family after all, let’s put this matter behind us…”
“A family?” Liang Meixuan snorted. “How does she deserve to be a member of the Ye family? I truly don’t know what sin the Ye family committed to have raised someone like her!”
Ye Wanwan glanced at Liang Meixuan and nonchalantly said, “Second Aunt, you should be more mindful of karma when you speak. You really shouldn’t make things so ugly.”
“What? You still have the face to say something like this? Why didn’t you think about how unsightly you would appear when your theft was exposed when you were doing it?!” Liang Meixuan raged while pointing at Ye Wanwan’s face.
Ye Wanwan sighed gently. “I originally wanted to leave you a little face in consideration that we’re family…”
“Ye Wanwan, you stole Sister Yiyi’s ring! How can you still be so brazen? How could you be so rude and disrespectful to your elders too?! Sister Yiyi, don’t be soft-hearted anymore. The proof has been laid bare, but she still refuses to admit it! We should just call the police on someone like her!” Liang Shihan proclaimed with righteous indignation.
Liang Meixuan naturally wanted nothing more than that, so she followed Liang Shihan’s lead and said, “Ye Wanwan, I would’ve let this matter slide if you apologized nicely. However, since you refuse to admit your wrongs, don’t blame me for taking the legal route! The Ye family shouldn’t have thieving scum like you!”
“Who the f*ck are you calling scum?!” That was the last straw for Ye Mufan, and he charged forward. He had never been so angry even when he was the one being insulted.
“Tsk tsk tsk, a daughter who’s a thief and a son with violent tendencies. What kind of upbringing is this…”
When Ye Hongwei and Tan Yi Lan heard the guests’ increasingly nasty comments, their expressions shifted again.
“Sure, I agree! Let’s call the police,” Ye Wanwan suddenly interjected.
Ye Mufan’s eyes shot open in shock. “Wanwan, what are you saying?”
“I originally didn’t want to make things too ugly because we’re family.” Ye Wanwan glanced at Ye Mufan before continuing, “However, these people not only stole my ring but also don’t show any remorse. Now, they’re framing me instead. I have no choice but to let the police handle this!”
A stunned silence descended upon the hall when Ye Wanwan finished speaking, and the guests all looked at each other, bewildered.
“Stole her ring?”
“She’s dreaming, right? Isn’t this Ye Yiyi’s engagement ring? How’s it hers? Could it be that she turned delusional from being unable to accept the reality after being discovered…”
