Listening up to this point, Si Ming Li nodded in satisfaction. "So I'd like to ask Miss Ye just how exactly were you able to have knowledge of those details, details that even the Si family's intelligence network was unable to fish out and how were you able to predict the development of events that you were able to prepare the props needed? Is it possible that you were able to foresee the future, huh?"
At that moment, everyone's attention was completely focused on Ye Wanwan.
They were too preoccupied trying to find the mastermind that none of them even questioned these details. Now that Si Ming Li brought it up, the incident did seem quite fishy.
"This woman... she's not a traitor too, is she?"
"Seems like she is!"
"How could she have known so much about these people? There must be something wrong with this woman!"
Seeing that Ye Wanwan had been dragged into this for speaking up for him, Xu Yi's heart raced, but he was unable to provide an explanation and didn't dare to speak up for her even more so.
Now that I've already been deemed the traitor, if I speak up for Ye Wanwan, I wouldn't be helping her but harming her!
Thus, he could only motion at Ye Wanwan with his eyes to get her to stop trying to protect him.
However, Ye Wanwan didn't have the intention of abandoning him. She took a handkerchief out of her pocket and lightly pressed on Xu Yi's forehead right before everyone's eyes. "You should clean this up a little, housekeeper Xu."
"You..." Xu Yi was stunned.
The faces of all the elders present were extremely gloomy.
This woman actually dares to treat a traitor so well right in front of us!
We should've immediately punished her just now!
Ye Wanwan didn't care about the fuming expressions of the elders around her. She turned to look at Si Ming Li, who was looking at her as she courted death like he had all the winning cards in his hands. She said leisurely, "Fourth great uncle, you're joking. How could I possibly be able to foresee the future?"
Why should Si Ming Li care about a little brat like Ye Wanwan? He looked at her with disdain and said, "Then... since this is the case, Miss Ye, you must be the Rose of Death herself... or someone powerful from the Rose of Death gang!"
In response to what Si Ming Li said, all the elders were horrified.
"I don't have any relations with the Rose of Death," Ye Wanwan replied calmly.
"With death at hand, you're still trying to deny it!" Si Ming Li sneered. "I think you're someone powerful from the Rose of Death; we must punish you today!"
As he spoke, he signaled the few guards in the area.
After receiving his signal, a few bodyguards hurriedly stepped forward, ready to take down Ye Wanwan.
"Just based on your assumptions, you want to punish the mistress of the Si family?" Ye Wanwan gave the guards side-eye. "I'll see who dares to do it!"
The guards looked at each other, not knowing what to do.
That instant, Ye Wanwan turned to Si Ming Li and sneered. "Fourth great uncle, if you're not trying to get the Si family into deep trouble, then you really must have some mental issues. I really can't imagine how a mentally-challenged person could actually hold such a powerful position in the Si family."
"What did you say?!" Si Ming Li's face contorted.
Ye Wanwan laughed. "If I'm truly like what fourth great uncle guessed - the Rose of Death herself or someone powerful from the Rose of Death gang... then have you considered the consequences if the Si family punishes me?"
Following what Ye Wanwan said, all the elders were stunned.
The Rose of Death had a vast and mysterious influence. If the Si family provoked the Rose of Death... the consequences would be unimaginable!
"Of course, I don't have any relations with the Rose of Death at all." Ye Wanwan continued and laughed: "If the Rose of Death wanted to mess with the Si family, they wouldn't have to go through all the trouble of planting a mole, right?"
