Gu Juexi shut his laptop after sending the last message, put it on the nightstand, and lay down with his hands behind his neck.
Should he look into what happened back then?
Ye Yuwei came out from the bathroom and saw Gu Juexi resting with his eyes closed. She took a pillow from the bed and put it on the couch.
“How did the orphanage catch fire, Ye Yuwei?” asked Gu Juexi suddenly.
Ye Yuwei put down the pillow in her hand and lay down on the couch without looking at Gu Juexi after what he asked.
“Matron prepared fireworks for the children on the mid-autumn festival without telling us what it was, so we were all guessing. But Bai Yuyan went to the storeroom alone at night with a candle,” said Ye Yuwei emotionlessly, and closed her eyes while back-facing Gu Juexi.
Gu Juexi on the other hand opened his eyes.
So it was Bai Yuyan who caused the fire back then.
“Why is she not dead?” asked Gu Juexi straightforwardly.
Ye Yuwei paused for a second but did not say anything.
Gu Juexi tried to picture how it happened, and began to wonder.
The child that he rescued back then, was it in the storeroom? Why did he remember that it was in the hostel?
“Were there beds in the storeroom?” asked Gu Juexi suddenly.
“We put the extra ones there,” said Ye Yuwei who began to sound impatient, “What are you trying to ask?”
Before Gu Juexi could say anything, someone knocked on their door.
“Juexi, Juexi, Grandma looks like she is not feeling well,” They then heard Bai Yuyan who sounded like she was crying.
Gu Juexi and Ye Yuwei quickly got out of bed and exchanged looks before Gu Juexi went to get the door.
Bai Yuyan was standing at the door with her face looking pale. She grabbed on Gu Juexi’s arm the moment she saw him. “Grandma must have eaten something bad, she is having diarrhea now, what do we do?”
Gu Juexi has already walked pass Bai Yuyan to the old mistress’ room before she could finish, and ordered Butler Kim to get Doctor Qiu.
Ye Yuwei stood at the door.
Bai Yuyan looked at Ye Yuwei intently and quickly followed Gu Juexi.
Meanwhile, the old mistress who just got out from the washroom was groaning in bed with her hands on her stomach. Gu Juexi sat at the side of her bed. “Grandma…”
“Did you see? Your wife is trying to kill me! All I did was to ask her to help out in the kitchen, and she actually laced my food!”
Ye Yuwei who was just standing at the door heard the old mistress and gripped on the doorknob.
Bai Yuyan who was looking weak also sat down at the side of the old mistress’ bed. “We don’t know what caused it but it started after dinner,” said Bai Yuyan pitifully while taking a glance at Ye Yuwei who was standing at the door.
Ye Yuwei stood at the door, without entering the room nor backing off. It would only make her look guilty if she left. But she did not do it!
Gu Juexi looked at Ye Yuwei who was holding tightly on the doorknob.
Looks like he did not believe her after all. He had never believed her.
“It must be her! This woman laced our food just because I made her help out in the kitchen. She took revenge even on Yuyan! She must have laced our food with laxatives.”
