“In that case, who are my biological parents?” Nian Xiaomu backed away subconsciously and lifted her head, looking at Xing Li.
Xing Li’s lips turned into a sneering smile.
“You’re asking me? How am I supposed to know? Maybe your biological parents died because you jinxed them when you were born! Or perhaps they knew that you were a jinx, so they abandoned you!”
Nian Xiaomu’s gaze darkened as the hands hanging by her sides tightened into fists.
She turned around and walked back to Yu Yuehan, raising her eyebrows slightly.
“All you have is a photograph and nothing else. Who are you to determine if I am Xing Xing? Even if I am Xing Xing, it has already been 10 years since the fire and I don’t remember anything. With only your side of the story, all of you have determined that I am the culprit. Don’t you think that this is too absurd?”
Her gaze swept past every single person who was present.
Even though her face was ghastly pale, Nian Xiaomu remained standing with her back straight.
“Xing Li told the reporters that I am her biological younger sister, but now she says I was adopted. What is she going to say next? She’s contradicting herself, and her mouth is full of lies. I do not believe a single word she said!”
The moment she finished speaking, Yu Yuehan held her shoulders.
Just like a strong support, he stood beside her.
His thin lips parted as he said with a pause after every word, “I will get someone to investigate this matter. If I hear any more defamatory statements about my fiancée before any concrete evidence is found, I will make that person pay the price, regardless of who that is!”
The moment Yu Yuehan finished speaking, the bodyguards moved forward and escorted all the members of the Xing Family away.
Xing Li pushed the bodyguards away and rushed forward.
“Xing Xing, you can lie to everyone, but you can’t lie to yourself. My Dad and Mom are dead all because of you. You caused their deaths. You will definitely receive retribution…”
Before Xing Li could finish, the assistant beside them had already moved forward and covered her mouth, dragging her away.
The courtyard in the Yu Family villa had been vacated.
Only three of them were left.
Nian Xiaomu stood in front of Yu Yuehan as she witnessed Xing Li get pulled away, her delicate face devoid of expression.
They had never expected the matter to escalate to this extent.
All of them thought that Nian Xiaomu would be the first one to break down.
However, she was unexpectedly strong and calm.
Plus, it was because of this that Xing Li’s lies were exposed so quickly!
Fan Yu seemed to have thought of something and left the Yu Family villa quickly, not staying for too long.
Only Nian Xiaomu and Yu Yuehan were left in the vast courtyard.
Nian Xiaomu stood there motionless, her gaze lingering in the direction that the Xing Family had departed from. Her eyes welled up with tears…
At first glance, her face seemed devoid of expression.
Upon closer look, however, the hands hanging by her sides were clenched in tight fists.
Her body was trembling as she attempted to put up a brave front to make herself appear unaffected.
“Nian Xiaomu, when you’re in front of me, you don’t have to restrain yourself.” Yue Yuhan held her hand. He knitted his brows upon realizing that her hands were still clenched into tight fists and that the backs of her hands were ice cold.
He forced Nian Xiaomu to open her hands.
The blood stains on her palms caused by her fingernails digging into them made him soften his gaze.
Just as he was about to say something, he heard her trembling voice.
“Yu Yuehan, I don’t believe a word of what Xing Li said. However, when I saw the family portrait just now, they appeared in my mind…”
“I could remember the scene where my adoptive parents held me in their arms and sat under the sun in the courtyard…”
“I could also remember that in the past, whenever I was leaving the house, there would always be two people standing at the door and looking at me with worry. Despite having walked quite a distance, I would still be able to see them if I turned around… They loved me so much… How could I forget about them?”
