Chapter 1621: A nice bright green hat
As Tao Yi Xuan spoke, everyone around them gasped.
If it were any ordinary crime, then it was fine that he had shielded her. However, to betray the clan was a huge sin. How were they supposed to tolerate it?!
Sima You Yue didn’t think that Tao Yi Xuan would be able to get ahold of this type of evidence. It seemed like she really had underestimated him
No, she had always held his views in high regard. It was just that he kept acting out of her expectations.
This was a man who schemed well!
“It’s a good thing we won’t interact that much.” She muttered in a small voice.
“We’ve all been deceived by him. We thought that he was a cute little boy, but we didn’t think that he would be an old piece of meat!” Han Miao Shuang said from the side.
“This type of person really knows how to disguise as a pig who eats a tiger. However, once he sees a need to stop concealing himself, he’s like a dragon in shallow waters. He won’t be able to be contained.” Jiang Jun Xian said.
“He’s really scheming. If he’s able to become the Patriarch but doesn’t honor our deal, what do we do?” Su Xiao Xiao was rather worried.
“He won’t.” Sima You Yue said confidently.
“Junior Sister, let me tell you. Do not be deceived by the outward appearance of man.” Han Miao Shuang hooked her arm around her neck, “The more handsome they appear, the badder they are!”
“Really? The first time I met Eldest Senior Brother, I felt like he was pretty handsome, eh!” Sima You Yue beamed as she shot a glare at Jiang Jun Xian, who narrowed his eyes and glared at Han Miao Shuang.
Han Miao Shuang stretched out both hands and directly covered his eyes, huffing, “Did I not speak the truth? Could it be that you want me to say that the more handsome a guy is, the more reliable he is? If I believed this, would I still be with you? Wouldn’t I run off with every new man I see?”
Jiang Jun Xian pulled her hand down and glared at her, threatening, “You dare?!”:
“So am I right?” Han Miao Shaung smiled, very arrogant.
“… right! You’re very right. Apart from me.”
This was the first time Sima You Yue saw Jiang Jun Xian acting this way. It was true that being in love really lowered one’s IQ.
“Once we find Master, let’s get married!” Jiang Jun Xian said.
“When did I promise to marry you?!” Han Miao Shuang wanted to pull her hands away but he held it in a death grip and she couldn’t pull it away.
“Even if you don’t agree, you have to agree!” Jiang Jun Xian was very forceful.
“No way!” Han Miao Shuang huffed.
Sima You Yue shook her head as she listened to this. Who proposed in this manner? Eldest Senior Brother didn’t understand these things!
“I say, if you are both going to have a lover’s quarrel, could you do it somewhere else in a different place?” She couldn’t help but remind them. If this went on, they were going to be discovered.
Han Miao Shuang only now recalled that it wasn’t just the two of them as he face turned red.
“It’s all your fault!” She glared at Jiang Jun Xian.
“Senior Sister, there’s a good show to watch! It’s the highlight!” Sima You Yuu pulled on her sleeve.
The moment Han Miao Shuang heard that there was a good show to watch, it immediately caught her attention and she didn’t care about Jiang Jun Xian anymore.
In the public plaza, Patriarch Tao was standing in front of his matriarch, such that the elders were even more enraged because of it. They wanted to remove him from his position as the Patriarch and accept Tao Yi Xuan in front of everyone.
Sia You Yue and the others thought that many people would jump out and protest, but for whatever reason, those old men had actually agreed with each other. It seemed like they had been threatened by Tao Yi Xuan somehow, or they had been bribed.
As for the younger generation, although they had opinions, when they saw that their Ancestor and the elders did not speak, how could they dare to stand out.
“Father.” Tao Yi Xuan took two steps forward, “Mother betrayed the clan and colluded with others, harming the interest of the clan. We have to take her down today.”
“You dare?!” Patriarch Tao yelled, “You unfilial son, if you dare to touch a single strand of hair on her, you will first have to go past my dead body!”
“Father, she has let you down. She doesn’t deserve your protection at all!” Tao Yi Xuan looked at him with a pained expression.
“No matter what you say, she is my wife.” Although Patriarch Tao knew that his sin was unpardonable, he could not bear to abandon her.
“Father, do you think that she still treats you the same as before? You’re not in her heart at all!” Tao Yi Xuan cried out.
“What nonsense are you saying?! Your father is the only one in my heart!” The matriarch knew that her only path out of this was via her husband, so she held on firmly to his hand without letting go.
“He he… when you speak, do you not find it shameful?” Tao Yi Xuan asked, “Looks like you won’t weep until you see your coffin. Bring that person here!”
“Go! Go over!” Two guards brought a man to the public square, and that person came over unsteadily, falling flat on his face.
When they saw that man, Patriarch Tao’s expression was one of confusion while the Matriarch was given a huge shock.
“Why have you brought the divine doctor?” Patriarch Tao asked.
“Father, this divine doctor. Do you still remember him?” Tao Yi Xuan threw a question back to him in reply.
“I naturally remember him.” It was this very doctor who treated his body. How could he not remember? If not for him, how could his wife have become pregnant again.
“A few months ago, there was someone who bumped into him as people were trying to kill him. That person saved him but found out something very shocking.” Tao Yi Xuan looked deeply at him when he spoke up to this point.
“This news cannot come from me.” Tao Yi Xuan said, “You should let the divine doctor tell you himself.”
“Tell me, what is it?”
“Patriarch Tao, save me!” The divine doctor suddenly cried out.
“Save you? Who wants to kill you?” Patriarch Tao seemed to have sensed something, but he was not willing to believe it.
“It’s Matriarch. She has sent men to kill me to silence me!” The divine doctor wailed, “I was completely unable to cure your hidden injury, but she forced me to say that I managed to treat you. Initially, she was the one who found me and gave me lots of benefits. It’s only then that I suppressed my conscience to deceive you. Because I was completely unable to cure you, I dared not stay within the Tao Clan. I didn’t think that people would keep trying to murder me once I left the Tao Clan. I almost died many times.”
Patriarch Tao was floored by the divine doctor’s statement. His expression changed again and again.
“Divine Doctor, are you mistaken? My wife is obviously pregnant. How could it be that you didn’t manage to treat me?”
“I speak the truth. Madame has long had an illicit affair with someone else. She has just been deceiving you all along.” Divine Doctor said, “If you don’t believe me, I can swear to it. All I said just now was true! If I had really managed to treat you, then I would be in hell for all eternity!”
After he made his vow, he still stood there completely well. This proved that his words were true.
Everyone looked over to Patriarch Tao and his Matriarch.
“You tell me, what is going on?” Patriarch Tao was affected heavily by this attack and his eyes were bloodshot. He looked absolutely terrifying.
“My Lord…” The matriarch had been terrified by this and subconsciously took two steps backwards.
“I don’t need you to say anything. You just need to make a vow as well. If the child in your womb is not mine, you will fall into the depths of hell forever.” Patriarch Tao found out through gritted teeth.
