Chapter 434: Just leave for a couple of minutes
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Xu Yi was certain the mole was already dead - he even saw his dead body and there was nobody living who could prove his innocence.
Ye Wanwan only made up her story in order to save his life.
So, Ye Wanwan also hadn't known whether he was wronged or not, yet she chose to believe him.
If she hadn't stepped in at that moment, both his legs would've been disabled and the entire Xu family would've been dragged into this with him.
Xu Yi stood there as straight as a stick. His gaze on Ye Wanwan became increasingly resolute and there was a distinct admiration deep in his eyes as he spoke, mouthing each word carefully: "Miss Wanwan, you're the future mistress of the household - these are my responsibilities!"
Hearing Xu Yi's reply, Ye Wanwan was quite taken aback.
Xu Yi sounds like... he actually acknowledges my status...
She didn't expect that because of this incident when she acted without thinking, Xu Yi's attitude towards her would change completely.
She was still alone in the Si family, so if she had someone like Xu Yi on her side, that was obviously a good thing.
Furthermore, Xu Yi wasn't only the closest person to Si Ye Han - he represented the entire Xu family.
One must know that Xu Yi's father, Xu Chang Kun, had been with the late master for over 30 years and had performed exceptionally; his prestige in the family was even higher than some of the blood relatives in the family.
Not long after the elders left, Dr. Sun finally arrived.
The old madam hurriedly got someone to bring him in. "Dr. Sun, please take a look at Little 9th. He fainted all of a sudden and has just woken up!"
On the large gray bed, Si Ye Han heard someone opening the door and he lifted his brows slightly. After seeing who it was, his face returned to its usual ice-cold expression.
His gloomy eyes seemed somewhat irritated. "Where's Wanwan?"
The old madam looked at her grandson, annoyed - at this point, he still didn't even care about his own health; the first thing that came to his mind was Wanwan. Didn't she just leave for a couple minutes?
At this moment, there was the sound of footsteps "deng deng deng" as Ye Wanwan rushed upstairs after sending Xu Chang Kun and the others off.
Seeing Ye Wanwan, the old madam heaved a sigh of relief. "Ay, she's here! Now can you let Dr. Sun take a look at you?"
Si Ye Han: "Come here."
These words were obviously directed at Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan walked over to the bedside obediently.
After Ye Wanwan walked over, the aura encircling Si Ye Han seemed to relax and he closed his eyes immediately, allowing Sun Bai Cao and his disciple to perform all kinds of checks on his body.
After a long time...
"How'd it go, Dr. Sun?" The old madam grew anxious when she noticed that Sun Bai Cao's expression didn't seem too good.
Ye Wanwan furrowed her brows and looked at Sun Bai Cao as well.
In her previous life, Si Ye Han was in a critical condition from his serious injuries. Would he be better this time?
Si Bai Cao shook his head and let out a long sigh. "9th master's health... has already started to deteriorate... I'm afraid... things are not optimistic..."
"Deteriorate? This... what does this mean?" The Buddha beads in the old madam's hand broke as she tugged on them emotionally. The beads rolled all over the floor.
Sun Bai Cao's expression was heavy. "I already mentioned this before, but his body is like a virtual frame - everything looks fine on the surface but inside, everything is in the red. Not only is his body incapable of nursing itself back to health, but his body is being overdrawn day by day. When even that last bit of foundation is used up, his hidden ailments will naturally explode. It's just a matter of time..."
