“It’s you?” Ye Qi was taken back, her face full of shock.
“Looks like you know him,” Jun Fengling commented neutrally as she glanced at Ye Qi.
Ye Qi lightly nodded. “While Rou’er and I were at the restaurant, it was this man who informed Rou’er her house had burned.”
The man in front of them was clearly the man who notified Xue Rou’er about the fire today, so Ye Qi naturally remembered him well. Ye Qi did not notice how Xue Rou’er’s ashen face filled with more despair after seeing the man brought here.
“You only know him as the person who informed Xue Rou’er, what you don’t know is that he is Xue Rou’er’s uncle,” Jun Fengling coldly stated with a smile.
As though struck by lightning, Ye Qi’s mind instantly blanked, and she mindlessly turned to Xue Rou’er, “Can you tell me what in the world is going on? What is this man’s relation to you?”
If this man was Xue Rou’er uncle, then why did he have time to notify Xue Rou’er but did not have time to rescue her mother? What’s more, she did not forget that it was because of this man’s words that she developed a misunderstanding about Huohuo…
“Rou’er, save me!” Seeing Xue Rou’er laying in a puddle of blood, the tough man hurriedly said, “I’m your uncle! You can’t watch me die. Admit that you were behind everything right now and it had nothing to do with me.”
Xue Rou’er’s body shuddered. She bit her lips without speaking a word. Besides despair, her downcast eyes also had an unshakeable hatred.
“Madam Ye, I beg you to release me.” Seeing the lack of response from Xue Rou’er, the man hurriedly kneeled in front of Jun Fengling. “It was Xue Rou’er who claimed she could become Madam Ye’s daughter-in-law when she returned to the Xue Estate that day, but she needed our help! That was why I listened to her and reported a fire and purposefully said that the one who lit the fire was a little girl wearing red clothes.
Jun Fengling’s brows went up. “Then do you know who set the fire?”
“I know!” The man did not dare to conceal anything. “It was Xue Rou’er! She set the fire herself, and her mother was also burned to death by her! It was because the Xue Family said they were willing to accept her return to the clan but would not accept her seriously ill bedridden mother. In order to be rid of this burden, she set her mother on fire as well. Back then, I still heard her mother’s anguished cries, and she was screaming Xue Rou’er’s name. However, she had no idea that the one who set the fire was her daughter, who she had always been proud of.”
After she heard the man’s words, Ye Qi’s body froze. She looked at Xue Rou’er in disbelief, and her voice was a bit hoarse as she asked, “The fire… you set it yourself?”
“It wasn’t me!” With a strength from who knows where, Xue Rou’er sharply yelled, “I didn’t set it! It wasn’t me!”
“Xue Rou’er, you still won’t admit it even now? It was you who told our Xue Family that as long as you burned down your house, Miss Ye Qi would certainly pity you and let you move into the Ye residence. As long as you could enter the Ye residence, you would be able to seduce Young Master Xiao…”
The man fiercely glared at Xue Rou’er. If this woman did not say it so confidently, the Xue Family would not be dragged into this.
A smile appeared on Ye Qi’s face, and her smile had a tinge of bitterness.
