Chapter 108 “This is Just the Beginning”
When Nangong Yi left the room to seek help, Bai Ruo’s expression promptly turned cold as hatred filled her eyes. “Bai Yan, I will be sure to pay you back double for the pain you’ve caused me!” She clenches her fist until the veins were popping.
Due to the extremity of that itchiness, the woman couldn’t resist making another deep hard scratch again, thus leaving behind a painful wound in its wake.
Unbeknownst to her, this was just the beginning….
Meanwhile somewhere else, Bai Yan was currently wondering how she should go about introducing her son to the elders. The key was to not frighten her grandparents in anyway.
However, before she could come to a decision, Hualuo in her dazzling pink dress had come walking over.
Smiling in her eyes, Hualuo’s voice was soft and melodic: “The people I sent to protect Sir Xiao (brother) just sent me a message…. According to their words, the little master was discovered by those from the Bai family when he went to visit your brother. I’m here to ask about how we should proceed from here.”

Regarding the part about the baby boy’s safety, Hualuo (head of the brother) didn’t have much worry at all because she knew full well how clever the little guy can be.
Bai Yan’s gaze turned gloomy at the news: “What are those people trying to do now? You stay here and wait for me, I’ll be back soon.”
Since she’s made up the decision to have her son come out into the open then there’s no reason to keep hiding him!
At the thought of this, she rises from her seat and disappears in a blink of an eye, leaving nothing but the clueless Hualuo in the background.
The person to make this surprising discovery on Bai Xiachen wasn’t anyone special, it’s Old Madam Yu, the shameless granny that’s been loafing off the Bai family all these years.
Speaking of this old granny, she had originally thought her days of bliss and wealth would be secured once she moved into the Bai House years ago. Of course, that was indeed the case for the past decade or so where the man treated her like his own mother.
Just a few days ago when Bai Yan returned, everything’s changed.
First was her daughter going crazy in front of the public, then the queen being banished to the Cold Palace, and finally there’s her granddaughter Bai Zhi being sent to the Criminal Division for imprisonment.
As such, Old Madam Yu ignorantly pinned the blame onto Bai Yan for everything that’s wrong. Originally today she had planned to make a trip to the temple for some praying, hoping it will help elevate the bad luck they’ve been facing. Yet, who could’ve guessed she would bump into the little steam bun holding onto Bai Xiao’s hand on her way home!
Rushing to have the driver stop the carriage, she wanted to find out more in this case. However, as soon as she did so, the first thing this old lady heard was the tiny kid calling “Uncle” when handing a candy stick to Bai Xiao!
Unaware still, Bai Xiao continues to makes the most gentle smile while rubbing the little guy on the head. Then just as he’s coming back up from bending down, that’s when he came to meet the old granny with her astonished look.
In that moment, all form of happiness disappeared from that handsome face. In its place, only a cold hard sharpness like that of a knife could be found in those eyes.
“Uncle?” Blinking in confusion, Bai Xiachen’s innocent eye followed that trajectory and looked up. That’s when he too saw the scheming Old Madam Yu.
Ignoring the unwelcoming stare from the bastard boy, Old Madam Yu confronts the two under the support of a maid. When looking down at the little steam bun, her wrinkled face only showed a scornful look of disgust.
“This wild child is Bai Yan’s kid?”
When Bai Yan returned a few days ago and didn’t bring along this kid, they had all assumed the baby must have been lost. To think the child from back then survived….
If Bai Zheng Xiang were to learn of this truth, no doubt he will fall into a fitting rage!
