Chapter 8.1: The Truth Is Always Cruel
Qing Bei was clearly rather greatly shocked by this elder brother he was meeting for the first time, and it was a good long while before he snapped back to his senses. "Big Brother, I am alright….."
"Is it because you do not dare to say it?" Yan Xi Cheng knitted up his brows. "No worries, the affairs of the household have always been handled by Mother. As she has not been well, the servants must have overlooked the matter. I'll go ask Mother about it right now."
Upon saying that, he immediately turned and wanted to walk out.
Qing Yu suddenly laughed lightly and said: "Actually, there are some matters one need not know too clearly about."
Yan Xi Cheng's footsteps halted, and he then heard the voice tinged with laughter continue to say.
"The truth is often what you will not like to know about, and once the paper covering the window is poked open, one might be very disappointed!"
"What do you mean by that?"
Qing Yu laughed, and did not say anything more. The youth in the wheelchair hesitated for a long while before he opened his mouth slowly. "Regarding this matter, the d.u.c.h.ess is aware of it. Or should it be said….. that she instigated it! My legs, became like this because she did not allow the manor's physicians to treat me, thereby missing the most critical period for treatment, causing me to be crippled!"
"What did you say?" Yan Xi Cheng's eyes were wide as he stared, his face filled with rage and incredulity. "How could you say such seditious and treasonous words! ?"
In his eyes, Mother was such a gentle and kind woman. Although Father had reneged on his promise to marry only one woman, in her hurt, she had only made herself move to live in a tranquil and quiet courtyard as she continued to manage the manor's internal affairs. Hence, how could she be capable of committing such a vicious and cruel deed! ?
"Within this manor, if without the d.u.c.h.ess' consent, who does Big Brother think will be so bold and daring to plot to harm the only other male descendant besides Big Brother?" Qing Bei said, the corners of his mouth curled up in a mocking smile, before turning his head away and refusing to say anymore.
Yan Xi Cheng's hands clenched up into fists and then relaxed, his face dark as he looked at the twins, before he went striding out with long wide steps.
"I had not thought that the Eternal Peace Duke's Manor's heir would possess such a clean and simple personality." Qing Yu said teasingly with her lips curled up at the ends. "But, if he really goes to question the d.u.c.h.ess right now and gets to know the truth, I think his state of mind might change quite a bit!"
"Big Brother is usually not here in the manor most of the time and had not encountered the evil scheming minds of people much. It's only to be expected that he would be a little naive and simple." QIng Bei commented softly as he watched the departing back.
"And this little brat here is so wise." Qing Yu said with a laugh as she ruffled his hair. "I can see that you seem to like him a lot?"
"Mm, in the Duke's Manor, Big Brother can be considered to be the only person that's flesh and blood. I….. admire him very much." Qing Bei said, feeling a little embarra.s.sed.
From a very young age, Yan Xi Cheng had gone on to follow at the side of a wandering expert to practice cultivation and it was thought that his level of cultivation must surely have reached unfathomable levels. And now he had gone on to do what all men strove to do, defending the country and killing their enemies on the battlefield. He was even made the youngest general in the entire Blue Wave Kingdom.
Qing Yu could not help but laugh and then sighed lightly. "Although soldiers are greatly respected, but they will be called in to face impending death anytime. I do not want you to have to face that and would rather you just live normally in peace."
The peerlessly beautiful girl before him revealed a faint arc at the edges of her lips, her gaze filled with a rare moment of gentleness as she looked at him silently, which caused his heart that was calm to suddenly thump vigorously.
They were clearly two people of the same age, but she was always acting a lot more mature and wise, making him feel like she had lived a for long long time, who was able to see through people and things that happens, and there was nothing that could make her care all that much about anymore.
