Xiao Min widened her eyes as she looked with astonishment at Madam Sheng Yue’s ice-cold face. “No, that didn’t happen. It is obviously that the bitch cut my finger off…”
Madam Sheng Yue coldly snorted as she said icily, “Xiao Min, you still want to lie at this moment? My Yue Er isn’t as savage as you are. Don’t you even think of placing the debts you accumulated outside my Xiao family. That expert is too powerful. My Xiao family can’t afford to offend him, and even more so, we won’t go and provoke him for you.”
How could Xiao Min not know that Madam Sheng Yue was purposefully helping Mu Ru Yue at this time?
She clenched her fist in fury. The blazing fire of anger in her heart seemed about ready to set her alight.
When the other elders heard Madam Sheng Yue’s words, they nodded. That young girl didn’t seem to be such a cruel person. On the other hand, there was a possibility that the arrogant and despotic Xiao Min had created a lot of trouble outside and offended an expert, resulting in that expert coming to the Xiao family to settle the debt with her.
Actually, Madam Sheng Yue wasn’t lying as the one that broke off Xiao Min’s finger wasn’t Mu Ru Yue, but instead the harmless looking little beast in her embrace.
This could be counted as Xiao Min offending an expert.
“Young Madam, are you not lying with your eyes open?” Xiao Yin’s expression darkened as he looked sinisterly cold at Madam Sheng Yue. “That girl broke my granddaughter’s finger. She must break two of her fingers as repayment. If not, I won’t let this matter go.”
“Won’t let this matter go?” Madam Sheng Yue chuckled mockingly. With a layer of ice in her beautiful eyes, she continued, “What right do you think you have? Father has commenced this meeting, not only for Yue Er to proclaim her ancestry, but also to announce another matter. I will announce it on his behalf instead. From now on, Xiao Yin is no longer my Xiao family’s elder! I will banish Xiao Yin and his family from the Xiao family, never to return!”
Expulsion from the Xiao family was the most severe punishment.
It could be seen how enraged Madam Sheng Yue was.
“You… you…” Xiao Yin was so angered that his old face turned red. He pointed at Madam Sheng Yue after a moment. “Madam Sheng Yue, don’t you think you are going too far? I have worked so hard for the Xiao family all these years, and now you want to banish me from the Xiao family? What right do you have to do that?
Madam Sheng Yue narrowed her eyes slightly. She wasn’t angry, but laughed instead. “Xiao Yin, have you forgotten my identity?”
The owner of the sacred spirit spring, Madam Sheng Yue, was the governor of the Sheng Domain. How could she not have the right to expel someone from the Xiao family? Even if she just had the identity of being the young madam of the Xiao family, she still had the power to make such a decision.
Xiao Yin’s body shuddered. He was too enraged, which was why he’d said those irrational words.
Madam Sheng Yue symbolized the power of Sheng Domain.
“Xiao Yin, don’t think I didn’t know that it was precisely with your help in assisting the Nangong family sixteen years ago that gave them the chance to steal my daughter. My husband had tried to destroy the Nangong family with his sword alone. If it wasn’t for you taking lead in stopping him, the Nangong family would have already perished. Today, your granddaughter impersonated herself as my adopted daughter to snatch my biological daughter’s fiance. She even wanted to use that identity to bully her. Do you still think it’s wrong to settle this debt with you?”
Madam Sheng Yue narrowed her eyes, an ice-cold smile on her face.
Her golden-yellow long robe made her look elegant, but it still wasn’t able to cover up that iciness.
“Young Madam, if it weren’t for you inhibiting the young head in taking in concubines that year, that incident wouldn’t have happened. Even though the young mistress of the Nangong family had taken a fancy of the young head, she was willing to place her status lower and become his lower concubine. If you had given in a little, all of that wouldn’t have occurred. This is a world that focuses on male strength; it is only natural for the men to have three wives and four concubines. For what reason did you stop him from doing so?”
