Yun Bixue’s gaze darkened as she gritted her teeth. “Forget it, Bilu.”
“Elder Sister, how can you just let it go? We don’t know where these kids came from, much less know if someone really used them against you. They even called you evil. From what I can see, they cannot even distinguish between good or bad, that’s why I have to teach them properly today.” Yun Bilu was so angry that it didn’t matter that they were only kids. She wouldn’t settle down until she beat some sense into them.
Bai Yaoyao had her arms crossed in front of her chest as she eyed the children. “Look at them. They don’t even know their mistakes. If we were to let them go right now, they might do worse things in the future.”
Yun Bixue walked step by step towards the children. She kneeled down in front of them so that they were on eye level and asked, “You said that I am evil, but what did I do? Have I ever harmed you, hit you, or killed any of your family members or friends?”
Against Yun Bixue’s questioning, the children could not answer at all. They were trying their best to shuffle backwards to hide and avoid her interrogation.
Yun Bixue did not give them any time to retreat as she pushed further. “Why did you say that I’m evil, huh? If you don’t say it clearly, you will have to stand here for a few days without food. If you answer my question, I will let you eat.”
To these five children, eating was very important since it had been a few days since they had a full meal. They cowered back before one of them voiced out, “They said that you’re evil and that we would only get to eat if we burned your gowns.”
“It’s been a few days since we ate.” The six-year-old boy hugged his stomach, showing that he was starving. His eyes were glistening pitifully.
“I want to eat too, so I will talk.”
“They said you’re evil and that we will get to eat if we punished the bad people.”
Hearing the children’s words, Yun Bixue’s anger turned into sympathy as her heart squeezed tightly. She only noticed now that the children’s clothes were slightly tattered, and they looked a little frail.
Her tone was gentle as she asked, “You don’t get to eat every day?”
One of the boys hugged his stomach and gave her a timid look. “If we don’t listen and obey, we don’t get food.”
That one statement stabbed into the deepest parts of Yun Bixue’s heart. She suddenly found these kids really pitiful.
She asked patiently, “Where are your parents?”
The five children blinked their eyes at the same time, looking confused. Not long after, one of them sobbed loudly and wiped his eyes as he answered, “We don’t know our parents.”
Yun Bixue caressed them on their heads and spoke gently, “If I gave you food to eat until you’re all full, will you still think that I’m a bad person?”
The five children thought about it. However, they probably did not understand that much because they shook their heads. A girl piped up, “A person who gives us nice food is a pretty elder sister.”
Yun Bilu caressed that girl’s head. “You’re the most obedient one. My elder sister is, of course, as pretty as an angel.”
Bai Yaoyao pulled Yun Bilu’s hand back and whispered, “Hey, don’t make things worse.”
Yun Bilu pouted. She found it strange how these five children simply appeared.
At that moment, Xie Limo walked over and wrapped his arm comfortingly around Yun Bixue’s shoulders. “The fire has been extinguished now. We found out that these kids were instructed by the Fang family. They couldn’t do anything, so they made these kids come here. They also arranged for them to come to our wedding. It’s under control now.”
Yun Bilu stomped her foot in anger. “I’m going to smash the Fang family into pieces. What kind of sick person would use kids like that? I’m so mad!”
Hearing Xie Limo and Yun Bilu’s words, Yun Bixue could only sigh as she caressed the children’s heads.
