Chapter 210 Confirm in Person
Every single one of them knew that this event had already come to an end when hearing Huo Jiahui take the initiative to say who she was.
They all knew clearly in their hearts whether Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang, the two brothers, wanted to kill their own father for benefit or Xiao Luo had made a false charge against his two uncles.
Xiao Yu was totally shocked.
Xiao Liang barely calmed down, yet he couldn’t control his trembling fingers.
He wanted to strangle Huo Ting.
And he wished to wring Huo Jiaying’s neck.
What he wanted most was to skin Xiao Luo, the little b**tard, alive.
He clenched his teeth and moved his eyes little by little.
Then, mercilessly and firmly, he fixed his eyes on Xiao Luo, who was standing on the stairs of the second floor without any movement all the while.
Xiao Luo wore a cold face, and his body was still tall and straight like ever.
However, Xiao Liang vaguely saw in Xiao Luo’s cold eyes the sarcasm which once he saw in his big brother, Xiao Xuan’s eyes.
“You… A little lunatic!” Xiao Liang gnashed the teeth in anger, and he almost yelled out when his eyes caught the trace of sarcasm in Xiao Luo’s eyes.
“B**tard! You actually united with outsiders to frame us!”
Looking at the disdain in the eyes of the guests at the scene, Xiao Yu couldn’t stand it anymore. He rushed to the stairs and grabbed Xiao Luo’s neckline. Then he punched him to the ground abruptly.
Xiao Luo was thin and injured. Thus, he fell to the ground instantly when being hit unpreparedly.
A little maid nearby shrank in fear, and then she ran over and held Xiao Luo. “Little Childe Xiao, are you alright?”
Xiao Yu got angry when hearing the words of “Little Childe Xiao”. He was even furious when seeing that little maid come to help him up.
He kicked away that weak little maid, and then he stooped and pulled Xiao Luo up from the floor by grabbing his neckline. “You are a little b**tard! I knew that you were a disaster when my father took you home that year. And now you are unscrupulous to this extent. You can frame your two uncles today, and you will be able to kill my father in the future. Today, I’m ready to risk everything to punish you for Xiao Family.”
After saying that, he raised his hand to hit him again.
A low and stern rebuke suddenly came to the ears of all the people.
All the people present were stunned, and Xiao Yu with his hand raised in the air froze his action immediately.
Not far away, at the arched sandalwood door connecting the villa to the old house of Xiao Family, stood a serious-looking old man leaning on a golden dragon stick and being supported by a steward.
The old man was getting on in years, but he had a kind of stateliness that couldn’t be underestimated.
When Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang saw him, they both called out in a low voice, “Daddy”.
Xiao Luo, who was pulled up by Xiao Yu through grasping the neckline also called out in a low voice, “Grandpa.”
Xiao Jiancheng’s hair was grey. When seeing that Xiao Yu grabbed Xiao Luo, he said nothing at once but winked at his steward.
The steward understood him, and then he said, “Sorry, everyone. I’m afraid that our evening banquet today will not make you enjoy yourselves to the full. Please go home first, everyone.”
As the old saying went, domestic shame should not be published.
No matter who would be the winner in this strife of Xiao Family, the guests at the scene were bound to know nothing about the result.
Elder Xiao had been through ups and downs when he was young, and he knew roughly what had happened here only by his sons’ and grandson’s looks.
All the guests at the evening banquet were evacuated and left one after another.
Song Yunxuan stood where she was, but Chu Mochen took her hand and pulled her away. “Let’s go home.”
Song Yunxuan frowned and glanced over there. Exactly, her eyes met with Xiao Jiancheng’s eyes.
Xiao Jiancheng’s eyes flickered.
But Song Yunxuan nodded politely, and then she turned around and walked out of the door with Chu Mochen.
The guests all left, and the entrance gate of Xiao Family was closed slowly.
The lights for the banquet were turned off gradually. Xiao Jiancheng’s deep and dignified gaze swept over his two sons and then fell on Xiao Luo.
“Three of you, come along with me.”
Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang looked at each other with dislike towards Xiao Luo.
However, Xiao Luo pushed away the little maid who was helping him up. Grinding his teeth, he stood up by holding the handrail by his side.
On the road, the guests left in their luxury cars from Xiao Family to all directions.
Song Yunxuan raised her hand and rubbed between her eyebrows. She felt a little tired.
Chu Mochen looked at her sideways. “Huo family acted out of normal behavior. It’s really not normal.”
Song Yunxuan did not look up. “It couldn’t be more natural. Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang both take the Huo family as a thorn in their flesh. If these two brothers take charge of the Xiao Family in the future, they will absolutely make trouble for the Huo family. Instead of fighting against Xiao Family every day in the future, it’s better for them to bet with these two brothers of Xiao Family now.”
“How do you know that the Huo family thinks like this?”
Song Yunxuan’s crimson and flower-like lips were slightly raised, and then she smiled. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
She said it easily, and it seemed that this was an unchanging truth for thousands of years, which should not be questioned at all.
Chu Mochen reached out his hand to pull her back by her shoulder. His fingers pinched her delicate jaw. “Eyes on me.”
Song Yunxuan was a little confused, yet she obediently looked at his eyes.
She couldn’t figure out the expression in his eyes, but she could feel vaguely that the following conversation would be serious.
“What do you want to say to me?”
“The Huo family…”
“Xiao Family will have a result on their family issues. Let’s go back to Yuncheng in a few days.”
“You know this isn’t what I want to say to you.”
“Then what do you want to talk about?”
Chu Mochen frowned, and his thin lips were slightly opened. “I want to say…”
His kiss falling gently on the corner of her lips was like a dragonfly skimming the surface of the water.
Chu Mochen wanted to catch her and stop her from moving. However, Song Yunxuan held his cheeks with both hands. She leaned over and gently kissed his lips.
Her long eyelashes drooped, covering her eyes filled with worries.
Her soft lips were as enchanting as a cherry blossom.
Though Chu Mochen tried several times to push her away, he changed his mind at the very last second before he could push her away.
His hand supported her by the back of her head. He couldn’t help deepening the feeling of that kiss.
Song Yunxuan opened her eyes slightly when he was addicted to this unexpected kiss.
At the corner of her eyes, there was only a flash of light.
If the issues of Xiao Family came to an end, there would be less trouble in the future.
Soon, I would come back to Yuncheng.
And at that time, all of those people who owed me would suffer the retribution.
There was a smell of incense that would soothe the nerves in the old house of Elder Xiao.
The fragrance lightly diffused in the air.
The elder of Xiao Family was sitting on an old-fashioned wooden armchair placed in the main hall. Behind that armchair was a large piece of jade. It was priceless.
The cane inlaid with nine dragons in his hand stood uprightly on the ground.
Xiao Luo knelt on the soft carpet in the middle of the main hall.
By his side, stood Xiao Yu, who was unwilling to kneel. “Daddy, I don’t know how you have educated Xiao Luo. Did you see what he did today?”
The bleared eyes of Xiao Jiancheng raising slowly chilled Xiao Liang to the bone. “I saw what he did today, A Liang. So now, are you educating me on how to behave properly?”
His words seemed to be soft, powerless, and neither light nor harsh.
However, it made Xiao Yu feel nervous.
“No, Daddy. I didn’t mean it.”
“Kneel down if you didn’t mean it.”
Xiao Liang by his side had knelt down on the carpet obediently. But Xiao Yu refused to do so. “Daddy, but…”
His state of illness was unstable, and his doctor warned him not to get angry.
He controlled his temper all the time.
But Xiao Yu couldn’t realize it at all.
Xiao Liang looked at Xiao Yu worriedly and said in a low voice, “Second brother, don’t provoke Daddy.”
With Xiao Liang’s persuasion, Xiao Yu knelt down reluctantly.
Xiao Family had strict rules.
But over the years, the two brothers, Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang, hadn’t knelt for a long time.
When he knelt down, Xiao Yu was still angry at Xiao Luo who was speechless. “Daddy, it was supposed to be a happy day today. I planned to introduce A Luo to the public above board and announce that he is Little Childe of Xiao Family in front of so many people. But, Daddy, you know what? He turned around and made a false countercharge against us.”
Xiao Liang echoed appropriately, “Daddy, you watched us grow up since childhood. You know better than anyone else what kind of people we are. Whatever mistakes we make, we will not frame you.”
Xiao Jiancheng sat on the old-fashioned wooden armchair and pretended to be asleep.
Seeing that their father didn’t talk anymore, Xiao Yu pointed at Xiao Luo and started to complain, “Xiao Luo is our eldest brother’s son. A Liang and I did everything for his sake. However, Daddy, did you see how he treated his two uncles now?”
Xiao Luo just kept kneeling down and stubbornly straightened his back without any retorts or words.
Xiao Jiancheng firmly grasped the handle of his cane. “A Luo, what’s your explanation?”
Xiao Luo looked at Xiao Jiancheng. “Grandpa, I have no explanation. Because I didn’t frame them.”
“You didn’t frame them?”
Xiao Jiancheng opened his eyes and stared at Xiao Luo sternly. It seemed that he wanted to pierce Xiao Luo with his sight.
Xiao Luo’s body got stiff for a short while. Under such a stare of his grandpa, he felt that he was nervous, and his body was tense all over.
Yes, he framed Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang.
But that was all.
They didn’t frame him, but they adopted a much more direct and spiffier way than framing him up.
They wanted to kill him.
If on New Year, Yunxuan, Xiao Dao, Will, and others hadn’t come to rescue him, would he have been alive and stood here still?
Perhaps, he might have been a cold corpse already.
When thinking of this, his eyes became gloomy and firm.
“Grandpa, I didn’t frame them.”
“You are lying!” Xiao Yu yelled out angrily.
Xiao Liang also stared at him. “You are so young, yet so malicious. Your second uncle and I really underestimated you.”
Xiao Luo looked at Xiao Jiancheng. “Grandpa, I wouldn’t have said it rashly without any evidence. The mother and daughter of the Huo family have testified Second Uncle and Third Uncle in person.”
Xiao Jiancheng’s eyes darkened. “For sure?”
Xiao Luo felt a little guilty in his mind, but he didn’t show it on his face at all. “Yes, Grandpa.”
Xiao Jiancheng stared at Xiao Luo. He squinted, but his eyes were locked at Xiao Luo all the while.
It seemed that he wanted to find some flaws from Xiao Luo’s eyes.
However, Xiao Luo stared at Xiao Jiancheng straightly. His eyes were burning. He was calm and was not uneasy or panic at all.
However, Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang next to them looked back and forth between Xiao Luo and Xiao Jiancheng since their father didn’t make any judgment.
Xiao Jiancheng stared at Xiao Luo’s burning eyes and sighed deeply in his heart.
He was a little depressed, but he couldn’t tell whether it was regret or wrath and disgust.
He gazed at Xiao Luo for a long time like this. An ancient clock in the room struck ten more times.
Then Xiao Jiancheng finally got up from the old-fashioned wooden armchair. “You said that the mother and daughter of the Huo family were eyewitnesses, and I will go and confirm it in person.”
Hearing this, Xiao Yu and Xiao Liang both showed a sly smile.
No one had ever tricked Xiao Jiancheng in front of him.
Xiao Luo’s trick would be finished.
