Heretic Doctor Useless Consort - Chapter 17

As soon as Su Qin shouted, the private guards who had followed her—instead of escorting Ye Qianli like a criminal—swiftly withdrew like a tide.
Even though they had ‘accidentally’ heard the inside story before, the main family’s affairs were not something that people like them could watch from the sidelines.
“If you have the ability to do such a shameless thing and disgrace our Ye family’s honor, what right do you have to sit? What are you waiting for? Kneel down.” Su Qin’s face turned green, and she looked extremely angry.
This time, Su Lianhua did not speak again. She stared fixedly at Ye Qianli, her gaze like a sword dipped in poison. She wished that she could gouge out that extremely beautiful face.
“Father, may I ask why you invited your daughter here?” However, Ye Qianli ignored Su Qin. In her eyes, she no longer had this mother.
Originally, she was a person who had occupied a magpie’s nest. She did not have much feelings towards the parents of this body—things like ‘gratitude for raising her up’ or ‘filial piety’.
Moreover, Su Qin really did not treat her as her daughter. Instead, this mother kept trampling on her—even insulting and hitting her! Hence, it was even more impossible for her to treat Su Qin as her mother.
As for Ye Fengtian… In Ye Qianli’s memories, although this father was also a sc*mbag, compared to her harsh mother, he had brought warmth to the original owner before.
Therefore, she still somewhat respected this father of hers. Even if he was also such a sc*mbag, for letting a mother humiliate his own daughter like this.
“I told you to…” Su Qin was indeed even angrier after being ignored. It looked like she was about to attack again!
“Enough! Can’t you talk nicely? She’s still our daughter, after all. You’re always threatening to strike her all day long. Is she your enemy?!” Ye Fengtian flipped out instead.
Only then did Su Qin stop talking. No matter what, she was still afraid of Ye Fengtian. Not to mention anything else—just based on cultivation, Ye Fengtian was at the level where he could easily strangle her to death.
“Li’er, don’t blame your mother for being furious either. It’s just that your actions are too disappointing,” Ye Fengtian who finished lecturing his wife finally looked at Ye Qianli and said with disappointment.
“May I know what Father is talking about?” Ye Qianli asked. Although she already had an idea in her heart, she still wanted to see how her father and mother would convict her.
“Elder Sister, quickly admit your mistake. Uncle and Aunt already know about it. You… About you and Guard Lin… Lin… Guard Lin has already been killed.” This time, Su Lianhua, who saw an opportunity to trample on Ye Qianli, did not let go of it and immediately added on to her ‘sin’.
As expected, Ye Fengtian’s face darkened terribly, and his eyes burned with anger!
“Guard Lin?” Ye Qianli went through her memories and confirmed that she really did not know who he was. She then looked at the black-faced Ye Fengtian and asked, “If I said that I don’t know this person, would my father believe me?”
When Su Qin—who had been silent for a while—heard this, the teacup beside her was swept angrily at Ye Qianli. That speed was so fast! An ordinary commoner would definitely not be able to dodge it.
Ye Qianli really did not dodge this time. Under the effect of Su Qin’s force, the boiling hot tea and cup hit her chest—where her heart was—hard and scalded her body.
The teacup fell to the ground. As the material was especially good and sturdy, it did not shatter. However, one could imagine how painful it was for Ye Qianli who had been hit directly.
If not for the fact that she had already awakened her innate talent and she was not the ‘trash’ she was after that incident, she was afraid that her heart would have been crushed to pieces and she would have died on the spot.
This was her mother, Su Qin.
Blood flowed out from the corner of Ye Qianli’s lips. Drops of blood flowed down her chin and dripped onto her chest. It was especially bright and piercing.
Ye Fengtian, a general who was used to going on battle expeditions, actually found it to be such a ghastly sight!
Even Su Lianhua was shocked. However, the smile at the bottom of her eyes could not help but float to the surface. She firmly believed that Ye Qianli, who was already crippled, would not be able to withstand this blow. Ye Qianli was going to die.
Ye Fengtian’s face was a little pale. After all, no matter what, she was his biological daughter! He had never thought of taking his child’s life even if she had done countless wrong things.
Su Qin’s expression turned ugly too. She had forgotten that this daughter of hers was already crippled. These kinds of actions from her would take her daughter’s life. She was just used to hitting her. This…
Seeing the change in the expressions of the three people in the hall, Ye Qianli raised her hand and gently wiped away the blood at the corner of her mouth. Then, she reached into her bosom, and a very broken jade pendant appeared in her hand.
“This is the Heart Protection Jade that Grandpa gave me. Grandpa has saved me again. This is my second life,” Ye Qianli said.
“…” Ye Fengtian heaved a sigh of relief.
“Your grandfather shouldn’t have given you these good things! A vile creature like you should have died earlier so that we would be spared any worry!” Su Qin also heaved a sigh of relief, but she didn’t forget to admonish her cuttingly.
“Does Father think so, too?” Ye Qianli asked.
“Enough! You evil creature, don’t keep thinking that your father will protect you. If your grandfather were to find out about what you’ve done this time, I’m afraid he would probably kill you personally.”
“As the Eldest Young Lady of my Ye Family—even if you’re a useless person, you still have the bloodline of the Ye Clan. Why… Why are you so willing to cheapen yourself and get together with a low-grade guard? A low-grade guard! You’re really capable.”
When Su Qin mentioned these pieces of ‘truth’, she was so angry that her liver hurt. She felt that the evil creature she had given birth to was here to bring her shame! It was the biggest stain in her life.
“Aunt, don’t be angry! Elder Sister… Elder Sister was just confused for a moment, too. Elder Sister, Elder Sister! Quickly apologize to Aunt. Don’t make Aunt angry.” When she saw the favorableness of the situation, Su Lianhua looked towards Ye Qianli and hurriedly begged her.
Ye Qianli simply gave her a slap on the face, and the latter fell from the settee onto the floor. She slapped Su Lianhua right in front of Su Qin and Ye Fengtian.
Su Qin’s face was filled with shock. She stood up completely and cast her palm strike directly at Ye Qianli! The strong wind whistled and pressed down like a mountain, heading to crush Ye Qianli.
As a fifth-level Mystic cultivator, Su Qin truly went all out this time! When she saw her beloved niece being struck, she was absolutely furious.
Ye Fengtian’s expression changed slightly, and he immediately wanted to stop her. After all, he knew that Ye Qianli could not be so lucky every time. However…
A cry of a phoenix, accompanied by a golden glow, swept towards Su Qin a step before Ye Fengtian could! Not only did it instantly disperse the power of her palm, but the remaining strength also exploded towards her.
In the next moment, Su Qin was sent flying and smashed against the wall behind the hall! Thankfully, Ye Fengtian had caught her in time and prevented her from falling to the ground in a sorry state.
However, Su Qin was already seriously injured. She vomited a mouthful of blood in Ye Fengtian’s arms. It was a shocking sight. Even Su Lianhua, who had fallen to the ground, was stunned.
“Although I—Ye Qianli—am crippled, the murderous aura accumulated within this Nine Phoenix Sky Ornament is enough for me to kill you, Su Qin.” At the same time, Ye Qianli’s cold voice rang out without any emotion.
