His Peasant Wife : Yao Ling - Chapter 478 - Bigger Than She Thought[Updated at: 2021-01-13 01:38:08]
Yao Ling waved her hand and gave a pointed look at Feng. The latter knew what he should do next. He was going to bring the man out when Ying Ying stopped him by asking, "Where do you want to take him?"
Yao Ling raised one of her eyebrows. "Why? Are you not willing? Do you want to save him?" She asked sarcastically while telling Feng to go on with a wave of her hand.
Ying Ying shook her head. "No...! I... I just want to get my revenge myself..." She straightened her back and asked for Yao Ling\'s permission --- she looked really determined.
"What do you want to do?" Yao Ling asked curiously.
"Kill him!" Ying Ying said ruthlessly. That man had ruined her even though she knew that she was a willing party back then, however, she didn\'t like the fact that she had been used from the very beginning. She would pay those people back tenfolds.
Yao Ling sighed. "You don\'t have to dirty your hands for the like of him..."
Ying Ying shook her head. "No... I already chose the path of revenge... I need to harden myself and save my family," she said resolutely.
Yao Ling sighed. "Once you kill people, there would be no point of return," she warned her the last time.
Ying Ying kowtowed. "This servant knows. This servant hopes that this servant could follow you from now on. I will be loyal to you but please... help me to save my family..." She was really desperate.
Yao Ling nodded her head. "You can handle him later. I will give it to you but now, we should talk about something else first before I agree with your request."
"Why?" Ying Ying was taken aback.
"We are in a public place... do you want to be taken by authority?" Yao Ling shook her head when she saw how muddleheaded Ying Ying was.
"Yes, Young Miss..." Ying Ying immediately obeyed when she realized how silly she was.
Once Feng brought the man out, Yao Ling told Ying Ying to sit down in front of her. "Do you know why I\'m concerned about your matter?"
Ying Ying shook her head. This was the thing that made her feel curious as well.
"The man in the painting... He\'s my husband..." Yao Ling dropped the bomb straight away. She wanted Ying Ying to accept this idea as soon as possible. If she didn\'t agree with her, then she wouldn\'t help her. It was a simple as that.
Yao Ling didn\'t want anyone to question the status of the relationship between Yao Ying and Yao Ling. They had become a legal couple after Wang Luo Hai submitted their data right after they became his children.
"What?" Ying Ying gasped in surprise. "But... I thought that man... and my sister..." After saying that, she quickly shut her mouth, knowing that Yao Ling wouldn\'t appreciate what she would say next. "How... How could he become your husband?" She quickly changed her question.
"No need to know about that, but one thing for sure, when they said that the man had a thing with your sister... it must be a piece of false news..." Yao Ling wouldn\'t tell her that Yao Ying had forgotten about his past or Ying Ying would make another speculation. It would be better if she misled Ying Ying --- the latter didn\'t really know anything about it anyway.
"I will help to save your family if it\'s in line with my goal. Your father seems to protect my husband so I take him and your family as our own people. However, if our guess is wrong, you should understand that I will eradicate everything that will harm my family..." Yao Ling said without pausing. She wanted Ying Ying to know that she saved her because they had the same goal, once they stood on the opposite side, Yao Ling wouldn\'t hesitate to kill them.
Ying Ying shuddered when she heard that, after all, she could see a hint of cruelty in Yao Ling\'s eyes. She quickly looked down and said, "Yes, Young Mistress..." She cleverly changed the way she addressed Yao Ling after she heard that Yao Ling was married.
Yao Ling nodded in satisfaction and told Ying Ying to tell her everything about her family --- especially about the first branch. She knew nothing about the second branch because she was usually not allowed to go out of her courtyard and used to being mistreated there so she didn\'t dare to ask many questions. This was the thing that invoked the first branch\'s miss\'s pity --- who knew that they were actually real sisters.
Ying Ying thought that maybe her real father had already known about it, thus, he gave her the way out, maybe feeling guilty? She didn\'t know... but at least, by doing this, it made her feel that her father had actually loved her...
"Have you ever seen anything suspicious from the first branch? I mean, maybe they are searching for something or... maybe someone as well?" Ning Jie asked.
Ying Ying tried to think hard about it and answered, "I\'m not really sure but I think they are indeed searching for someone. Each night there would be my father\'s several subordinates who would come and go reporting something... It seemed like my father really put good importance to this matter..."
Ying Ying started to regret why she didn\'t pay attention to her surroundings back then. However, one thing for sure and she also told Yao Ling about it... her sister wasn\'t like a broken-hearted person whose fiancee had been missing.
However, it was just a mere guess...
What kind of relationship that Yao Ying had with her sister... Ying Ying didn\'t know for sure. Listening to her words, Yao Ling felt slightly relieved.
"So... When will you save my family?" Ying Ying asked in a low voice.
"Tell me more about their crime first in detail..." Yao Ling ordered Ying Ying softly. She already knew the bigger picture from the investigation result from her people --- it wasn\'t that hard, because the matter was quite popular in the Qin Kingdom.
A famous official family had been seized and captured by the Emperor because of treason. However, such a heavy punishment... an adopted daughter ran away and there was no move from the Emperor\'s people to search for her. Yao Ling felt this matter was too fishy --- it made her slightly doubted Ying Ying\'s identity.
When her people tried to find information about this adopted daughter, everything matched with Ying Ying so her identity had been proved that it was real. At first, she didn\'t understand why they let her go. Once she heard, the result of the investigation from Feng... she realized that they wanted Ying Ying to become a bait to find Yao Ying. It seemed like they found out that Yao Ying was alive --- otherwise, what was the point of doing this?
Yao Ling really got a headache when she thought about it. This matter seemed to be bigger than what she thought it would be. It seemed like she needed to start investigating from their village once again. She needed Yao Ying help in this...
