At that moment, the Yaoguang Residence was in turmoil. It was like the chaos of war. Zhen Zhu and the other young maids from the Zilin Residence trembled in fear as they hid in a remote house.
Qing Hu and Qing Liu comforted them quietly. Fifth Concubine, with a pale face, looked out through a window. She saw Ye Yuxuan frowning as he shouted at Ye Ruyi, who was obstructing his path, “What are you doing?”
“Father, I cannot allow you to take Zhen Zhu and the rest away.” Although Ye Ruyi was tiny, she stood bravely in front of Ye Yuxuan with her arms spread. She did not look like she was going to back down.
“They are not the Yaoguang Residence’s servants. What is it to you?” Ye Yuxuan demanded impatiently. He had already allowed Qing Mama to escape, and he would not let off the rest of the maids. He could not deal with Ye Jiuge, but he could still kill some of her maids.
“Although they are not servants of the Yaoguang Residence, they are important to me.” Ye Ruyi racked her brain for an excuse. She had to delay Father until Eldest Sister could return.
“Why are they important to you?” Ye Yuxuan was not convinced. How important could these maids be?
“They… they can help me to clean my Pill Production Furnace as well as arrange my personal letters when I am producing pills.” Ye Ruyi could not think of any other excuses, and she could only talk nonsense.
“Ha!” Ye Yuxuan sneered. “You ask the servants from the Zilin Residence to help you clean your Pill Production Furnace and arrange your personal letters. Then, what’s the use of your residence’s servants?”
Before Ye Ruyi could finish speaking, she was forcefully interrupted by Ye Yuxuan. “Since your servants are useless, there is no reason to keep them. They shall all be sold away.”
Qing Hu and Qing Liu shivered when they heard this. They feared that Ye Yuxuan would tie them up and sell them.
“That won’t do. They are also useful.” Ye Ruyi shook her head repeatedly.
“Now, hear this. You can only keep one group of servants: those of the Zilin Residence or the Yaoguang Residence.”
Ye Yuxuan’s expression darkened as he released the aura of a fifth stage Alchemist at Ye Ruyi. He was outraged as he felt that his efforts had gone to waste. Ye Ruyi was an ingrate to favor Ye Jiuge instead of someone on her side. She had repeatedly sided with Ye Jiuge, that annoying brat. He was going to sort this d*mned girl out today, or she would become a second Ye Jiuge.
Ye Ruyi turned pale as her eyes widened with fear. She felt as though Ye Yuxuan’s image had overlapped with that of the sinister and scary Sorcerer in the underground room. Cold sweat began to seep out from her forehead and back. Immediately, her clothes became drenched. Ye Yuxuan revealed a satisfied grin as he thought his aura had crushed her.
Fifth Concubine realized that something was wrong with her daughter and was about to open the door.
“Fifth Concubine, no!” Qing Hu immediately restrained Fifth Concubine. Ye Ruyi had specially instructed her not to allow Fifth Concubine to appear in front of Ye Yuxuan so as not to infuriate him again.
“Even if it comes to worst, I will just take a beating from the Old Master.” Fifth Concubine pushed Qing Hu away and rushed out to hold her daughter in her arms.
She realized that Ye Ruyi was completely soaked, and her entire body was trembling. Her pupils were dilated as if she were having a nightmare.
“Ruyi, Ruyi, what’s wrong with you?” Fifth Concubine patted her daughter’s face but did not see any reaction. She hurriedly turned to Ye Yuxuan and cried, “Old Master, there’s something wrong with Ruyi. Please take a look at her!”
“Stop putting on an act in front of me.” Ye Yuxuan thought that they were acting. He glared at them in disdain before instructing the guards behind him, “Go in and tie up all the servants. Don’t leave even one.”
Song Bai hesitated momentarily before asking in a soft voice, “What about the servants from the Yaoguang Residence?”
Towering above Fifth Concubine, who was out of her wits, the corners of Ye Yuxuan’s mouth curled into a vicious sneer as he said, “Tie them up too.”
“Yes!” Song Bai immediately led in the guards and chased Zhen Zhu, Qing Hu, Qing Liu, and the rest out.
“Fifth Concubine, save us!” Qing Hu and Qing Liu panicked as they screamed.
Hearing Qing Hu and Qing Liu’s sobs, Fifth Concubine finally recovered from her trance. Holding Ye Ruyi in her arms, she implored piteously, “Old Master, those two are Ruyi’s personal maids, and they serve her well. Please, spare them!” She could not save the servants from the Zilin Residence, but she must protect Qing Hu and Qing Liu.
“Ruyi’s personal maids?” Ye Yuxuan’s furious gaze swept past Qing Hu and Qing Liu. His vicious expression could make anyone tremble with fear.
Fifth Concubine opened her mouth to speak, but nothing came out.
“I see that the two of them must have instigated Ruyi to be disobedient toward me.” Ye Yuxuan nodded and said to Song Bai, “Bring these two maids to the Torture Chamber and beat them to death!”
“Old Master!” Fifth Concubine screamed mournfully. She did not expect her plea for leniency to bring fatal calamity to Qing Hu and Qing Liu.
“Tell the other servants to come and see what will happen to them if they make such a mistake. Then, they will know what they should and shouldn’t do in the future,” Ye Yuxuan said coldly.
“Yes.” Song Bai nodded, then called out to the guards, “What are you waiting for? Quick, bring them to the Torture Chamber!”
“Yes!” The two guards were big and tall, and they looked perverted and cruel. With a burst of malevolent laughter, they moved closer to Qing Hu and Qing Liu.
Their large hands deliberately grabbed the maids’ small chests. It was clear that they were taking advantage of the situation.
“You are seeking death!”
Suddenly, an angry shout accompanied the arrival of the swift and sharp sound of the wind. In a flash, a purple whip attacked the two guards. They let out a blood-curdling screech as their arms dangled unnaturally. Their muscles and bones had been severed.
Their eyes brimming with tears, Qing Hu and Qing Liu each gave a look of surprise. Wearing a curtain hat and holding the Lightning Snake Magical Whip in her hand, Ye Jiuge stood protectively in front of them. Qing Mama hurriedly untied the two maids.
“Ye Jiuge, you still have the gall to return!” Ye Yuxuan pointed at Ye Jiuge and shouted.
“Father, you have the gumption to bring male outsiders into your Inner Courtyard to kick up a fuss. Why would I not have the audacity to return?” Ye Jiuge raised her eyebrows and said unrulily.
“What nonsense are you spouting? They are my personal guards, not male outsiders. Furthermore, I am instructing them to punish disobedient servants. What does that have to do with the Inner Courtyard?” Hearing that Ye Jiuge was mocking him for cuckolding himself, Ye Yuxuan was so mad that his face became twisted.
“Is that so? I wonder what the servants from my Fourth Sister’s residence have done that you need to involve a great number of people to punish them,” Ye Jiuge sneered.
“You stayed out all night. Not only did these servants fail to report it, but they also tried to hide your mistake. They deserve ten thousand deaths for their crimes! As for the Yaoguang Residence’s d*mned servants, they have corrupted the Fourth Miss and instigated her to rebel against me. They deserve to die, as well!” Ye Yuxuan said viciously.
