With the support of Madam Lin, Prime Minister Lin came to the front hall in a sickly state, gasping for breath with every step he took.
He was not pretending to be seriously ill. Of course, he was not ill. He just felt guilty when he learned that Xiao Tianyao and Lin Chujiu had come to the house together.
“Wangye… Chujiu, you’re here.” Prime Minister Lin crossed the threshold with difficulty, his face frighteningly white.
Lin Chujiu frowned, did not speak but looked at Xiao Tianyao, and asked him with her eyes: Didn’t you say you were pretending to be sick?
Prime Minister Lin’s behavior didn’t look like he was pretending to be ill. At least as a doctor, Lin Chujiu could be sure that Prime Minister Lin was weak.
“He won’t die.” Xiao Tianyao whispered. Prime Minister Lin just stood firm when he heard Xiao Tianyao’s words. He was so frightened that he froze in place. He held Madam Lin’s hand and trembled: “Wang, Wangye…” What does he mean?
He won’t die, so he doesn’t care about him?
This was not possible. If Prince Xiao leaves him alone, he will be tortured to death by the Emperor. The Emperor could not retaliate against Xiao Tianyao, but there was no pressure against him.
“Prime Minister Lin, please sit down.” Xiao Tianyao showed no intention of explaining to Prime Minister Lin. He raised his hand and motioned for him to sit down, and then stopped talking.
Prime Minister Lin sat down, trembling. He was quite happy at first, but after sitting for a long time, Xiao Tianyao and Lin Chujiu didn’t speak, so Prime Minister Lin couldn’t sit still.
Not to mention Prime Minister Lin, even Madam Lin who was standing by could not stand still. She was twisting the handkerchief tightly with both hands, lowering her head so that Lin Chujiu and Xiao Tianyao could not see the dissatisfaction in her eyes.
The atmosphere in the front hall seemed to be divided into two parts. Xiao Tianyao and Lin Chujiu were enjoying tea leisurely, but Prime Minister Lin and Madam Lin were so nervous that their heart, liver, and lungs ached. Of course, they could not rule out being angry.
After sitting for about a stick of incense, Prime Minister Lin became more and more uneasy, and his face turned as white as a ghost. However, Xiao Tianyao and Lin Chujiu still showed no expression and did not even look at him. It was not like they came to visit a patient.
Reluctantly, Prime Minister Lin had no choice but to take the initiative and said: “Wangye, Chujiu… you have been traveling these days, you must be tired. Do you want to take a rest first?”
Were these two people here to visit the patient? Or they came here to piss him off?
But it happened that neither Xiao Tianyao nor Lin Chujiu was someone he could offend, so he could only endure it.
“There is no need to rest. I am here to visit the sick. I heard that Prime Minister Lin was seriously ill before entering the city. You hope Chujiu will come to visit, so as soon as we arrive in the capital, I will accompany Chujiu here.” After seeing Prime Minister Lin, Xiao Tianyao took the initiative to speak, but it was obvious that his words smelled like gunpowder.
“Wangye, you’re making me scared. I never thought that my slight illness would disturb the prince. I’m fine. I just haven’t seen Chujiu for a long time and miss her.” Prime Minister Lin knew that he might not be able to please the other party today. He felt uneasy, but he didn’t want to give up.
“You miss Chujiu? Doesn’t Prime Minister Lin know where we just came from?” Xiao Tianyao had seen how shameless Prime Minister Lin was today.
How shameless was Prime Minister Lin to say something like “I miss Chujiu”?
Without waiting for Prime Minister Lin to speak, Xiao Tianyao continued: “I and Chujiu have just returned from the Central Empire. There is a Lin Family in the Central Empire. They said that someone from the East sent them a letter saying that Chujiu is the daughter of the Lin Family of the Empire.”
“Wha, what?” Prime Minister Lin looked at Xiao Tianyao in shock, his eyes full of shock and disbelief. Uninformed people would think that Prime Minister Lin knew nothing.
Sure enough, the eyes can be deceiving.
Lin Chujiu shook her head slightly without saying anything.
Except for Prime Minister Lin, the only people who can know her life experience were the Meng Family. The Meng family will never betray her, and the Meng family cannot contact the Lin Family of the Central Empire.
Of course, the only one left was Prime Minister Lin.
“I heard that Prime Minister Lin has been very close to the Empress during this period. Prime Minister Lin must know the relationship between the Empress and the Central Empire.” Even if Prime Minister Lin wanted to pretend to be stupid, it depends on whether Xiao Tianyao agreed.
“Wang, wangye, I don’t know, I don’t know. The Empress only takes care of me for the sake of wangye and Chujiu.” During the period when Xiao Tianyao was in the Central Empire, the Emperor repeatedly suppressed him and the Lin family. If it weren’t for the Empress’s protection, he and the Lin family would have ceased to exist long ago.
“Don’t you know in your heart whose daughter Chujiu is? If not, how could you acquiesce with Madam Lin giving Chujiu a chronic poison?” Xiao Tianyao came to the Lin Family Mansion today to settle matters.
*Plop* After being named, Madam Lin was so frightened that her legs went weak. She knelt on the floor and denied repeatedly: “Wangye, no, I didn’t… I didn’t poison Chujiu. Chujiu is my sister’s daughter. There is no…”
Unlike Prime Minister Lin, Madam Lin’s eyes cannot deceive others. Her eyes flicker when she lies, and she dares not look at Xiao Tianyao or Lin Chujiu.
“There is certainly evidence for what I said. You know what you did, Madam Lin.” The first person Xiao Tianyao wanted to kill was Madam Lin.
She dared to poison Lin Chujiu, she was simply too impatient to live, but……
Lin Chujiu said she wanted to let Madam Lin go because she was the daughter of the Meng family. She didn’t want her deceased grandmother and grandfather to be sad, nor did she want her uncle to blame herself.
No matter what, Madam Lin was her uncle’s biological sister, and the family ties were there. They can do whatever they want with Madam Lin, but they must leave her alive, otherwise, the Meng family might blame them.
Upon hearing this, Madam Lin knew that her sophistry was useless. She gritted her teeth resentfully, glanced at Lin Chujiu resentfully, and took everything on herself: “Yes, that’s right, I did it. I give Chujiu the poison. I did it alone. It has nothing to do with my son or daughter. If you want to deal with it, just deal with me alone.”
In the end, she lost, at the hands of her sister’s daughter because of her soft heart.
Why didn’t she kill Lin Chujiu directly?
Does she regret it?
Of course, she regretted it, but regretting it now was useless.
Madam Lin looked at Lin Chujiu with regretful eyes……
“In that case, I will grant you my wish.” Xiao Tianyao did not expect Madam Lin to confess her crime so quickly, and he had not yet used the backup plan he had prepared.
However, this can be regarded as solving a big thing.
“Come here, send Madam Lin to the Ministry of Punishment.” Even if Madam Lin hasn’t killed Lin Chujiu, she can be punished by law.
Poisoning the eldest daughter to death was not a serious crime, but the crime was not light.
The guards came in quickly, grabbed Madam Lin, and walked out. Madam Lin did not resist but looked at Lin Chujiu with hateful eyes. The hatred in her eyes made Lin Chujiu irritable.
She thought she was not worthy of the Meng Family.
Seeing this, Xiao Tianyao held Lin Chujiu’s hand and comforted him: “It’s just a clown, don’t pay attention to it.”
“Wang, wangye… this, this is a misunderstanding, I don’t know what she did.” When Prime Minister Lin saw Madam Lin being dragged away, he knew that his premonition had come true.
Prince Xiao was not here to visit the patient, but to make them pay.
“It doesn’t matter whether there is a misunderstanding or not. I am here today to tell you that I don’t want to see Lin Family in the capital, let alone someone using his identity as Chujiu’s father to cause trouble for Chujiu. Now you have two options to choose, either you die, or the entire Lin Family disappears.”
If Prime Minister Lin dies, Lin Wanting and her younger brother can still live in the capital. The other one was… …
Their family can no longer set foot in the capital.
He believed that Prime Minister Lin will make a wise choice!
