Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Li Shen knelt down all of a sudden and gritted his teeth with a pale face. “Qingqing, you father knows now, just admit it.”
“Hoh…” Ming Shu raised her eyebrows. “Looks like they’ve promised you many benefits.”
The girl sitting there didn’t do anything, but Li Shen felt like his throat was being strangled by something and it was hard to breathe.
Father Liu got angry. “How dare you! You still dare to talk nonsense. If your surname was not Liu, I would have handed you over to the village head. You and him will sink into the pond together.”
“I’m so scared.” Ming Shu patted her chest.
“If you don’t want to die, listen to me obediently. Now there’s only one way for you, which is to marry Li Shen. I’ll tell the outside that you like each other and the matter will be settled.”
Marry Li Shen?
Are you seeking your own death?
Ming Shu asked with a vague smile, “What if I don’t?”
Father Liu sneered. “Then I’ll hand you over to the village head.”
“Okay, call the village head here. Let’s sort out this matter.” Ming Shu nodded her head. “I also want to see who will be the one that is going to sink in the pond, your beloved daughter or me?”
Father Liu was suddenly stunned. Would she have any evidence on hand?
Ming Shu was too calm and Father Liu couldn’t help but panic.
“What do you mean?”
“What do I mean? I’m threatening you. Do you think you’re the only one who can threaten people? Should I tell the butler to call the village head now?”
As she spoke, Ming Shu was about to call the butler.
“Liu Qing!” Father Liu scolded her.
He was just bluffing by saying that he would call the village head.
Who knew that she was not scared, and even climbed the ladder. Now he was put into a pa.s.sive position.
Ming Shu smiled. “A straightforward person does not resort to insinuations. I think you’re clear about who is the one that met a man in private. It’s impossible to push the crime on me.”
Father Liu didn’t say anything. He was thinking in his mind whether Ming Shu was bluffing or really had something to prove her innocence.
The butler came in time to ask Father Liu to go deal with the emergency in the shop. Father Liu ordered to lock Li Shen up and asked people to watch Ming Shu, then he left in a hurry.
The emergency seemed a serious situation, and Father Liu didn’t come back until midnight. But Father Liu didn’t find Ming Shu’s troubles. He called Liu Xinyue over.
Knock knock. “Second Young Lady, are you asleep?”
The light in Ming Shu’s room was on. The servant who knocked on the door saw the figure slowly shrink against the window paper. Then the door opened.
“Second Young Lady, sorry.”
As soon as the door opened, the servant said this.
An hour later…
Ming Shu yawned, stepping on the stool. In front of her was a white China bowl filled with black liquid.
“At this late hour, I thought you were coming to send food to me. You made me happy for nothing.” Ming Shu looked at the people lying on the ground. “Who sent you here?”
No one answered.
“You don’t want to talk?” Ming Shu yawned again and sniffed, her voice soft. “Then I can only treat you with something special.”
The man watched Ming Shu pick up the white China bowl on the table and approach him.
She was going to feed him the medicine!

The man suddenly realized this in his mind.
“What nonsense are you talking about in this early morning?” Father Liu pretended to be cool. It was not a presentable thing to poison his own daughter. “I told you to stay in your room. Who let you out!”
“I have legs and if I want to go out, I’ll walk out. Does it have anything to do with you?” Ming Shu took the bowl pa.s.sed to her by the trembling servant.
“I’m your father, and we’re in the Liu residence, why doesn’t it have anything to do with me? Whose food and clothes are you eating and wearing? You dare to talk to me like this, I think you’re really ruleless!” Father Liu raised his voice a lot, as if he would sound reasonable by doing that.
Ming Shu formed a fake smile. “What kind of father would poison his own daughter to muteness? I don’t dare to be your daughter. Besides, I’m not your daughter originally.”
The servants were startled. What did they just hear?
It was actually not a secret that the Host was picked up by the Liu family, and the Host knew it herself. But it was her first time speaking it out.
Father Liu’s expression became odd. He suddenly asked, “Liu Qing, are you out of your mind?”
Or is she bewitched? Xinyue said she is acting strange now. Her personality has changed a lot, and she can even speak like a normal person.
“As for my food and clothes—” Ming Shu paused. “According to some old servants in the family, when you picked me up I was accompanied by a large box. So what exactly was stored in that box, soil?”
How would someone like Father Liu pick up an infant for no reason?
The Host learned all this from the family’s old servants. But soon those old servants were sent away and no one mentioned them ever since. The Host didn’t think too much about it at that time.
Father Liu got extremely nervous inside. When he found there were rumors spreading at the start, he immediately dismissed those old servants. But how could she still remember that?
Ming Shu stood up with two steamed buns in her hands. As she pa.s.sed Father Liu, she said lightly, “Don’t be too greedy, or you may lose too much.”
The footsteps faded away. Father Liu could only hear his own heavy breathing.
“Father, why are you standing here?”
Liu Xinyue’s voice pulled Father Liu back. There were only the two of them in the dining hall now, and all the servants had left.
Father Liu looked at his own daughter and roared with rage, “Look what trouble you have caused!”
“Father… I was wrong.” Liu Xinyue apologized very sincerely. “I didn’t do it of my own will, it’s Li Shen, that hooligan, who forced me…”
Liu Xinyue shirked all responsibility to Li Shen. She claimed that he forced her and she had no other choice but listen to him so as to protect her own reputation.
