Chapter 1262: Both internal and external trouble
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Ye Wanwan poured a glass of water for Xu Yi in the living room and frankly asked, “What’s the Si family’s current situation?”
Xu Yi placed down his cup and looked at Ye Wanwan, sighing. “Miss Wanwan, to tell you the truth… I knew something major would happen in the Si family ever since Ninth Master disappeared. Too many people were defiant of Ninth Master. People didn’t dare to act impetuously when Ninth Master was here, so everything was calm. But after Ninth Master disappeared… It’s like a volcano has erupted and things can’t be fixed.”
Ye Wanwan understood what Xu Yi was saying.
Many higher-ups of the Si family feared Si Yehan, so Si Yehan was able to suppress them when he was here.
However, Si Yehan had disappeared for many days without a single word. His fate was still known, as though he had disappeared into thin air. The Si family previously mobilized a large amount of manpower and financial resources to search for Si Yehan without any success.
Now, many higher-ups of the Si family thought an accident happened to Si Yehan. There wouldn’t be zero news of him otherwise.
“Si Mingli and his family returned earlier… Quite a number of higher-ups in the clan support Si Mingli’s bid to become the new patriarch of the Si family… The minority who disagreed didn’t end up well.” Xu Yi’s brows were deeply furrowed.
Ye Wanwan wasn’t surprised about this. Si Mingli fled from China out of his fear of Si Yehan. Now that Si Yehan disappeared with his fate unknown, Si Mingli had nothing to fear anymore, so he took advantage of this prime opportunity to return to the Si family and overturn the Si family…
“How’s Grandmother?” Ye Wanwan asked.
Even without Si Yehan, Grandmother’s prestige in the Si family was immense, so she should be able to suppress those higher-ups for a short amount of time.
“*Sigh*…” Xu Yi sighed at the mention of Grandmother. “Her situation doesn’t look too good. She hasn’t woken up yet.”
Ye Wanwan’s expression turned serious when she heard that.
Based on what Xu Yi said, the current Si family was wrought with both internal and external trouble. What was most fatal was the changing internal structure of the Si family.
The higher-ups who originally sided with Si Yehan were nearly all eliminated.
After Si Mingli returned to the Si family, he obtained support from a majority of the higher-ups and gave those higher-ups extremely tempting terms.
Si Yehan’s staunch loyalists moved to the opposition. Moreover, the opposers who had unyielding attitudes and vehemently opposed Si Mingli all disappeared without a trace one day ago, their fates unknown.
However, Xu Yi knew full well that those opposers who were loyal to Si Yehan, as well as the higher-ups who wanted to fight for the position of the patriarch, were all secretly dealt with by Si Mingli…
“Miss Wanwan, the situation with the Si family is too dangerous… I want to find an opportunity to extract Old Madam from the Si residence…” Xu Yi said with a sigh.
Ye Wanwan frowned lightly and said, “Since things are like that, I’ll go back to the Si residence with you and bring Grandmother to my place here.”
Grandmother would definitely be in danger after Si Mingli took control of the Si family…
Xu Yi promptly shook his head at her suggestion. “Miss Wanwan, you can’t… You absolutely can’t! Si Mingli hates you to the bone. Si Mingli is already in control of the Si family now. It’s too risky for you to return to the Si family right now. At that time, even you won’t leave unharmed, let alone taking Old Madam away!”
Ye Wanwan didn’t refute Xu Yi’s words. She knew her enmities with Si Mingli.
Si Mingli probably hated her to the bone.
