The Husky and His White Cat Shizun - Chap 160
When the surrounding guests heard this, many of them revealed looks of disdain. Their gazes shifted between Ye Wangxi, Nangong Si, and Song Qiutong.
Someone softly said, “What a scum …”
“Young Master Nangong is actually not angry?”
“So Miss Song was forced to … Ai, you can’t blame her … She’s just a girl. What can she do in front of two young masters who are in the limelight?”
The black-clothed man had learned to be unruffled and was unexpectedly hit by Heaven’s Inquisition. Fortunately, he dodged in time and wasn’t seriously injured. He also wasn’t entangled, but his cloak was still torn and blood splattered. He groaned and didn’t dare to be negligent. He dodged Chu Wanning’s willow vines even more diligently, but his mouth still didn’t let Ye Wangxi off.
“Young Master Ye, Miss Song didn’t dare to admit what happened two days ago because she was worried that it would hurt your relationship with Young Master Nangong. But the sky has eyes and a mirror hangs high above. Don’t tell me you don’t have the slightest bit of shame? Don’t you plan to lower your head and apologize in front of everyone?! ”
Ye Wangxi was extremely angry, but also found it laughable. He said, “What crime did this Ye commit?”
“If you didn’t commit any crime, then could it be that Miss Song is the only one who committed the crime? Although she didn’t resist, I think it was only because she was threatened by you. Don’t tell me you want to say that she actively solicited you? And that you didn’t force her? ”
At this time, Nangong Si, who had been silent all this time, suddenly turned around and lowered his head to look at Song Qiutong. He reached out to help her up.
Song Qiutong thought that he was reaching out to confirm the chastity mark on her wrist. When she woke up this morning, she discovered that the cinnabar on her wrist had disappeared. She was extremely flustered, but this kind of matter would only make things worse. She couldn’t explain it clearly in a short period of time. She thought about how she and Nangong Si were going to consummate their marriage very soon. At that time, the cinnabar would disappear on its own. Thus, it was better to not say anything for the next two days to avoid causing misunderstandings.
She didn’t expect that someone would slander her like this …
She thought about how she had indeed been saved by Ye Wangxi, and how she had once been Ye Wangxi’s attendant. Then she thought about how her cinnabar had been used up, and how the red mole on her leg had been clearly pointed out by someone else. She had no way to defend herself. For a moment, her mind was buzzing, and she did not know what to do.
Amidst the chaos, she raised her moist eyes and looked at the vast crowd, only to see those people looking at her with disdain and pity, whispering and discussing spiritedly. She then saw Ye Wangxi standing alone with a sullen face, being condemned by a thousand people, spurned by the guests.
The man in black was still being chased around by Grandmaster Chu’s willow vines. He kept yelling, “Ye Wangxi! You and I have accumulated resentment for a long time. Today, I will expose you. You are a hypocrite! You secretly conspired with the Young Mistress and forced yourself on a good girl. How vicious! ”
Song Qiutong was stunned, and she practically abruptly understood what she should do. It was already impossible for her to clear her name. Based on the black clothed man’s tone, that person seemed to have a deep enmity with Ye Wangxi, and he was using every possible means to destroy Ye Wangxi’s noble reputation of being a gentleman.
She couldn’t bear the crime of having an affair, but if she followed the black-clothed man’s words and said that she was forced by Ye Wangxi, then at least …
She shouted almost hysterically, “He’s the one who set me up!”
Nangong Si’s hand suddenly froze. He stood in place and looked at her in shock. He didn’t seem to believe that his fiancée was really defiled by his father’s right-hand man. He was completely stunned.
Song Qiutong covered her face and sobbed. She said in a choked voice, “Yes, it was Ye Gongzi who humiliated me. He … he forced me … I never agreed …”
Nangong Si stared at her. The candlelight flickered. His eyes were gloomy. After a long time, he put down his hand that was holding Qiutong’s hand. His voice was hoarse and sparks flew everywhere. “Do you know what you’re saying?”
Seeing his anger, Song Qiutong became even more anxious. She cried and said, “Gongzi, I’m sorry … I was afraid that Gongzi wouldn’t accept me, so … I … I didn’t dare to say it … I was even more afraid … more afraid that if I said it, it would make Ye Gongzi and Gongzi become enemies. He’s so important to the Sect Leader. If you two become enemies, how could the Confucian Wind Sect be any better?” As she spoke, she lowered her body. Her long sleeves touched the ground. Her slender shoulders couldn’t help but tremble. It was a sad and lamentable sight.
“Qiutong really didn’t know what to do … I didn’t dare to ask the Sect Leader for help. I could only hide the humiliation I suffered … Gongzi, Qiutong is guilty to you, but … but she is sincere to you …”
Nangong Si’s face was pale. He stepped back and shook his head. He repeated, “Do you know … do you know what you’re saying?”
Song Qiutong’s fine black hair spread over her shoulders. Under the shadow of the candlelight, it looked like silk. It made her look even more delicate and pitiful. She sobbed and said, “It’s Qiutong’s fault. I shouldn’t have hidden it from Gongzi. But I’m lonely and helpless. I …”
Nangong Si suddenly shouted, interrupting her, “Do you know what you’re saying?!”
“I …” Song Qiutong’s whole body trembled. She looked up, her beautiful face was wet. Her beautiful face was full of tears. Her lips were trembling. “I …”
“You actually did such a thing? You, you actually dared … you actually dared to do such a thing! ”
When the crowd heard Nangong Si’s words, they couldn’t help but frown. They exchanged glances with each other. Some people couldn’t help but whisper, “I’ve long heard that the Confucian Wind Sect values men above women, but I didn’t expect that something like this would happen. Nangong Si didn’t blame Ye Wangxi, but Miss Song, who was humiliated for no reason. It’s really disappointing.”
“That’s right. He really can’t distinguish between good and bad.”
Chu Wanning had already retracted his willow vine when he heard Qiutong admit it herself. At this time, seeing Nangong Si’s reaction, he was also somewhat at a loss.
In his memory, although Nangong Si was occasionally arrogant and willful, his conduct was upright. He definitely wasn’t an unreasonable person. If this matter was true, then no matter what, he should blame Ye Wangxi and not Song Qiutong.
But now, it seemed that Nangong Si’s anger was all directed at Song Qiutong alone … How could this be?
Among the guests, only Mei Hanxue was sitting peacefully at the table, drinking while watching the bustle. If Xue Meng was here at this time, he would find that Mei Hanxue was completely different from what he saw just now. At this time, he had the same attitude as the romantic seed in the Peach Blossom Spring. The corners of his eyes held spring, and his every movement was very elegant.
Qiutong was still sobbing and complaining, pushing all the ugly things to Ye Wangxi. Ye Wangxi was probably shocked by her accusation, but he couldn’t say a word. He could only open his eyes wide and stare blankly at the woman he had bought from the Xuan Yuan Pavilion.
“It was Qiutong who was weak and didn’t have the courage to prove her innocence before Young Master Ye took advantage of her. Qiutong’s duckweed body, everything she obtained was bestowed upon her by Young Master. Now … Now that I know I was wrong … I … await Young Master Ye’s punishment … ”
After Nangong Si finished listening to her sobs, he suddenly raised his head and closed his eyes.
The originally lively and warm lantern light now shone on his face, but a dark shadow rolled over and over. His eyelashes trembled, as if he was suppressing something with all his might.
His palms were clenched into fists, completely devoid of flesh. His Adam’s apple bobbed up and down, just like the stormy waves in his heart. He endured, his cheekbones cold, the veins on his forehead bulging. He endured, his bones trembling, his blood flowing like a raging fire burning his heart.
He endured, but in the end, he couldn’t hold it in anymore. With a furious curse, he stood up, pulled out his sword, and slashed the table in front of Song Qiutong in two! The cups and plates were a mess!
“Song Qiutong, do you know … In my life, what I hate, hate, and cannot tolerate the most is lying!!” After he finished speaking, he suddenly shouted, “Ye Wangxi!!”
“… Young Master.”
“Ye Wangxi, come here!”
He suddenly turned around, his eyes red and moist, “Come here!!”
Ye Wangxi walked over. The people watching the show felt that in the next moment, Nangong Si’s sword would probably stab straight into Ye Wangxi’s chest, directly cutting open the beast’s stomach, pulling out his heart and throwing it on the ground. They held their breaths, nervously watching everything in front of them.
Nangong Si gasped for breath, stared at Ye Wangxi for a while, and said in a hoarse voice, “… You, undo the Voice Changing Technique.”
“Voice Changing Technique?” Everyone was stunned, looking at each other, “What does this have to do with the Voice Changing Technique?”
“Yes, sigh, but it’s strange, why does this Ye Wangxi want to use the Voice Changing Technique for? Is his original voice so scary that it will scare others? Or is there something shameful about his original voice? ”
Ye Wangxi lowered his eyes and said, “Young Master, it can’t be undone.”
Nangong Si was stunned, and stared at him, “What did you say?”
“Since this Ye was thirteen years old, this Ye has been using the Voice Changing Technique all day long. This voice has been used for ten years, and the Voice Changing Technique has been deeply ingrained in my spiritual core.” Ye Wangxi paused, and said calmly, “I can’t restore my original voice anymore.”
“…” Nangong Si took a step back, greatly shocked. After a while, he looked up at the man sitting on the high seat with a cryptic expression, and muttered, “Father?”
Nangong Liu finally spoke, “Si ‘er, this is indeed a pity, but… the Voice Changing Technique was done by Ye Wangxi willingly. Now that it has come to this, it is also unexpected. You don’t have to think too much about it. ”
Nangong Liu walked down the high platform and stood behind the crowd of guards. He stood with his hands behind his back and said, “Father knows that you have a friendship with Ye Wangxi, and that he has been loyal to his duty all these years, so I am very grateful. But this is a separate matter, he… secretly colluded with Qiutong Song, disregarded human relations, and bullied his superiors. This is a capital offense. ”
Never would he have thought that Nangong Liu would say such words. Nangong Si said in shock, “Father!!”
Nangong Liu waved his hand, and a blue light flashed. Nangong Si was immediately enveloped in a binding enchantment. At first, he was stunned, but then he angrily roared and smashed the enchantment. However, this enchantment was the Confucian Wind Sect’s “Enchantment Enchantment”, which had been passed down for generations. Because the Confucian Wind Sect once had a case of patricide, the Sect Leader’s son had signed a blood contract with his father when he was young. This enchantment was specially used by the father to detain his son. It could last for half an hour. Even if Nangong Si’s martial arts were superior, he would not be able to break free.
The words he shouted inside the enchantment were completely sealed, so he could not be transmitted to the outside world…
Now that things had come to this, it was better to admit that Ye Wangxi and Song Qiutong had an affair than to reveal the other secrets of the Confucian Wind Sect. Nangong Liu arrived in front of the black-clothed man, cupped his hands, and said politely, “Although I don’t know what kind of grudge Mister has with Ye Wangxi, I am grateful for Mister’s advice today. Otherwise, I would have really brought misfortune to my family.”
The black-clothed man said indifferently, “Sect Leader Nangong is too courteous.”
“Men, immediately take down Ye Wangxi! Until — ”
The black-clothed man suddenly stopped him, causing Nangong Liu to feel uneasy. However, his face was still smiling as he said, “Mister, what other advice do you have?”
“I was thinking, your son only said a few words about the Sound Change Technique. Why is Sect Leader Immortal in such a hurry to imprison Young Master Ye?”
“Cough, this is a private matter of my Confucian Wind Sect, so it’s not convenient to talk about it here …”
The black-clothed man smiled and said, “For the sake of the Confucian Wind Sect’s face, Sect Leader Immortal Monarch is really clear about what it means to abandon a pawn to protect a chariot. Poor Miss Ye has risked her life for your sect for more than ten years. Now, in order to protect your family’s dignity, you have implicated her innocently. ”
As soon as these words were spoken, before the others could react, Nangong Liu’s expression suddenly changed.
Under the seat, Mei Hanxue smiled, poured another pot of wine, took a sip, and put it down again.
Nangong Liu’s face looked somewhat sallow under the candlelight. After a long while, he asked with a fake smile, “What Miss Ye … Mister, you …”
The black-clothed man’s eyes were bright, and his voice echoed clearly and loudly in the hall. Every word was shocking.
“Ye Wangxi is not a man at all.”
