939 A Slap

Gu Juexi sat down in the yard with Xixi in his arms and stroked her hair. 

Xixi was searching Gu Juexi's pockets hoping that her daddy had brought her some snacks and was sad to find none. 

Ye Yuwei was going back to her room to change when Gu Juexi looked at her and complimented her. 

"It's nice." 

Gu Juexi meant what he said. He had never seen Ye Yuwei in a cheongsam before and was stunned to see how beautiful Ye Yuwei looked in one. 

Ye Yuwei rolled her eyes at Gu Juexi then went into her room to change into her own clothes. 

Not seeing her for long enough, Gu Juexi tutted when Ye Yuwei went to change. 

"I suppose you and Wei Wei are good now?" Wen Jie sat beside the table and guessed when she saw that her son's face was way more cheerful now than when they left. 

"We have always been good," said Gu Juexi arrogantly while holding Xixi for her to stand on his lap. He said it very softly but happily. 


"About what you said you have to do earlier, Mother, you don't have to do it at all. You know me, I will do things that I have decided to do, at least to get justice for Ye Di," said Gu Juexi while putting Xixi down from his lap. 

"Bring her out to play, Ye Xicheng." 

Ye Xicheng pursed his lips and decided to take Xixi along to see Yuan Mo, because Yuan Mo promised to take them to the mountain. 

"How can I make you stop doing this? Do you want to drive your own mother crazy?" asked Wen Jie after the two kids left the room. 

Ye Yuwei was coming out from her room after changing. She stood still when she overheard their conversation. 

Gu Juexi hid his emotions after his children were completely out of his sight and looked at Wen Jie. "I have never disobeyed you, Mother, not even for my marriage, but I can't listen to you this time." 

"If you really have to look into this, what if I pay her life with mine?" Wen Jie looked at Gu Juexi and asked while massaging her temples. 

"What are you saying, Mother?" Finding what Wen Jie said outrageous, Gu Juexi jumped up from his chair angrily. 

"Why does he have to dig up the past that was so long ago?" Wen Jie clenched her fists tightly in her lap. 

"Nalan Chunbo needs an answer," Gu Juexi lowered his head to look at his mother and said. 

"There is no answer to that, how many times do you need me to tell you?" Wen Jie got agitated too and said. 

"Mother…" Gu Juexi said suddenly, his hands on the table, "I have always wanted to ask you this. Did you treat Wei Wei so well because you like her? Or because you were guilty?" 

A loud smack filled the air. 

Wen Jie had slapped Gu Juexi on his face right after what he said. 

The slap was so hard that Gu Juexi's face had turned from the force. He didn't look back immediately and remained in that position, while Ye Yuwei was stunned at what Wen Jie did. 

But she didn't dare go out of the room. 

If her mother-in-law was stopping them from looking into it because of guilt, then… 

Ye Yuwei couldn't think further. Her aunt was only in her teens when she was killed. What threat could she possibly have brought? 

"I don't care what you think, Gu Juexi. You can hate or blame me all you want. Tell Nalan Chunbo to come after me if he needs an answer, because I forbid you from looking into this any further," said Wen Jie clearly. "If you insist on doing this, be prepared to visit my grave when you are back," Wen Jie finished and left.
