His Peasant Wife : Yao Ling - Chapter 383 - The Truth (10)[Updated at: 2021-03-29 15:08:43]
Chapter 383 - The Truth (10)
Yao Ying and Yao Ling were looking at each other helplessly. They had thought that no one would pay attention to that abnormality. However, choking a person without hands was quite a big event. However, it seemed like nothing would be able to escape Feng Yong Rui\'s keen eyes. It certainly gave them a headache ah~!
How to explain this matter to Feng Yong Rui so the latter wouldn\'t feel suspicious?
And maybe... there were also several keen eyes out there, for example --- the other officials could be paying attention to this matter as well. Honestly, not all of them were stupid and could be deceived easily. It was just some of them were deceived because they were afraid of ghosts, however, a few of them were just like Feng Yong Rui by second-guessing everything.
Fortunately, they were disguising themselves so they didn\'t show off their real face. After she went back to the Shu Kingdom, Yao Ling\'s identity would be safe. Hopefully...
Xiao Fang asked in surprise, "Didn\'t you arrange it as well, Father?" Xiao Fang had her suspicion as well but she didn\'t say anything about Yao Ling\'s secret even to her own father. Besides, she wasn\'t sure whether it was indeed Yao Ling\'s work or not.
What if she accidentally said something wrong? So, it was better if she pretended that she knew nothing.
Feng Yong Rui shook his head and answered in a low voice, "I didn\'t arrange anything because my main target was still the Han Emperor. Why should I care about a mere woman? I thought that once I got ahold of the regent position, it would be easier for me to kill her."
After pausing for a little while, he continued talking, "That matter was really too weird ah~! If it was about the palace guards\' leader\'s death, it was indeed my doing. It was done by my people who were specialized in assassination and we had planned it all along so my people continuously learned this special way to kill a person. However, there was actually concrete and real possible way to do that --- using thin strings and inner qi. However... what about the choking? How could people choke someone else without touching the latter\'s neck? It was really abnormal!"
No matter how he thought about it, Feng Yong Rui couldn\'t find a reasonable explanation ah~!
Feng Yong Rui was still feeling curious but he would never guess that this was Yao Ling\'s doing, besides, he didn\'t really believe in mystical power in the first place. When the Han Emperor was busy imprisoning Aunt Yue back then, he just thought that the latter was very stupid for believing such a questionable power. In his eyes, it was just a fraud thing.
Rong Qiu looked at Yao Ling and when he saw the latter tried to blink innocently at the others while looking at him helplessly, he understood that it must have been Yao Ling\'s doing. He started to notice that Yao Ling was as emotional as Su Wan and those emotions affected their powers as well. He knew he could trust Feng Yong Rui but he still didn\'t want to let too many people know about Yao Ling\'s power. Knowing this matter would only put people in danger, besides, the temptation was too big.
Once people who were in power heard about this, he knew they would want Yao Ling to do this and that for them --- just like how his mother ended up. He didn\'t say that Feng Yong Rui would become like that, but he was just being cautious.
Rong Qiu cleared his throat and asked, "Really? Such a thing could happen?" He pretended to be oblivious and didn\'t believe in Feng Yong Rui\'s words. Pretending to be stupid and know nothing was the best thing to do at this moment.
Feng Yong Rui nodded his head vigorously. "It\'s true... Really! You can ask the kids if you don\'t believe me," he said while his gaze was skimming over those kids.
The youngsters quickly murmured the agreement. Everyone had seen it clearly so how could they deny it ah~?!
Rong Qiu asked in a serious tone, "Maybe... it\'s the real ghost\'s doing?!" He didn\'t believe in ghosts as well but he just needed to find a plausible reason.
Feng Yong Rui laughed at him while said in a sarcastic way, "What nonsense are you talking about?! The Ce Fei\'s ghost? Ha-Ha-Ha! You are really stupid if you believe in that..." He mocked Rong Qiu which made the latter really want to kick him. The way he said it was really annoying!
Rong Qiu could only point at him while muttered, "You... You..." He behaved like a scorned wife ah~! After that, he chose to shut his mouth and think that it was better if he stopped talking as well. That damned Feng Yong Rui was getting bolder and annoying!
The youngsters helplessly looked at the childish elders and could only shake their head. However, they also found the amusing ah~!
Qi Hao, who was the most innocent one regarding this matter among them --- after all, he really knew nothing about Aunt Yue or Yao Ling\'s power, asked, "Father, what if what uncle Rong Qiu said really true ah~? You have to think ah~! When it happened, I already looked around carefully and couldn\'t find anything weird around the wicked concubine. No weird equipment whatsoever as well, so I don\'t think that it was done by humans. Thus, what else do you think can explain this anomaly?"
In Qi Hao\'s mind, the one thing that could explain this matter was... of course, the ghost! It seemed like the Ce Fei was really coming from hell and getting revenge on her own. The ghost must have been hiding herself so no one could see her when she was strangling that wicked concubine.
Yes, Qi Hao\'s mind started to wander to a crazier direction while his face turned even paler. He was really thinking too much about the ghost matter.
Feng Yong Rui, "..."
He didn\'t understand why his son would believe in ghosts when he knew that Xiao Fang and Yao Ling were only acting like ones. There must be something else!
"I will find out about it for sure," Feng Yong Rui answered confidently. He didn\'t believe that the people that did it didn\'t leave any trace.
Xiao Fang rolled her eyes. "I don\'t think that you will be able to find out anything because I believe that it was the Ce Fei ghost\'s doing as well!"
In the end, the three of them were fighting among themselves --- two versus one. The result was obvious... How could Feng Yong Rui win from those two ah~?! Not only that, but Yao Ying, Yao Ling, and Lin Jian were joining them to convince Feng Yong Rui as well!
In the end, the old man could only relent and murmur his agreement, feeling afraid that they would hound him forever. It was better if they stopped talking about it!
"What\'s your plan after this?" Feng Yong Rui asked Rong Qiu. The latter had told him that what Yao Ling said was the truth... The latter was indeed Rong Qiu\'s daughter. It wasn\'t that he didn\'t trust Yao Ling, but he just felt that this news was so surreal and needed to confirm it to Rong Qiu himself.
He also understood once Rong Qiu grasped his new identity, there was no way that he would stay in the Han Kingdom.
"I will follow my daughter and search for my wife," Rong Qiu answered resolutely.
"What about your son here?" Feng Yong Rui asked hesitantly.
