Chapter 123 “The Shameless Bai Family (1)”
“Brother, since so many things had occurred today, that man will most definitely blame you for everything. Don’t go back and stay here for a few days.” Smiling warmly, she shifts her gaze over to Hualuo, “I already tasked Hualuo here to prepare a room for you.”
This time Bai Xiao was rather complacent and didn’t refuse the request. Nodding: “Alright.”
It’s been six years since they separated so it’s only natural that he would want more time with his sister.
At the same time over at Bai Zheng Xiang’s location. He had just finished running around all day for his daughter Bai Zhi. Sadly for him, his efforts only yielded a firm denial from the prison guards. The answer he got was that Lord Cang wouldn’t allow it.

As for his son-in-law Nangong Yi, the prince was too busy with his own matters so the problem with Bai Zhi didn’t even register with the man despite being relatives.
Yet, it was precisely when things are at its worse that the guards from his own home arrived with even more bad news.
Upon learning of the incident, Bai Zheng Xiang grew furious and angrily headed for his own home, completely forgetting his youngest daughter was still inside the prison in the background.
As soon as he stepped into the Bai manor, he immediately roared at the servants: “Go bring me my wife!”
“Yes, Chief.” Cupping their hands, the guards behind him hurriedly ran away to carry out the order.
Yu Rong arrives on the scene with her big dark coat. No longer the exquisite and noble woman that she appears to be, only white paleness could be found on that trembling body when facing her husband.
“Yu Rong!” Bai Zheng Xiang roared: “Back then did you try to sell Bai Yan as a concubine to the Qian family?”
Scared beyond her wits, Yu Rong fell to the ground on her knees: “Husband, you mustn’t believe those nonsense out there. I didn’t.”
“No? The Qian family is already knocking at our doors to get their gift back and you still say no?” In his fitting rage, he directly slaps the woman across the face: “Didn’t I treat your Yu family good enough? I even brought over your mother and treated her with upmost respect, no different from my very own! And you, I never maltreated you in the least. But for your brother, you would sell my daughter just for his sake?!”
Holding onto her reddish cheek, Yu Rong didn’t have the courage to face her husband.
They’ve been in love from young to old, but this was honestly the first time he had hit her. For that, how can she not be hurt inside?
“Husband, my younger brother is also your cousin!” Yu Rong tightly bit her lips with tears flowing down her cheeks: “What’s more, Bai Yan had already lost her chastity back then. To not bring anymore shame to our family, I arranged for the marriage behind your back so that she would have some form of status before the child’s born. Its all for you!”
“Then why did you want to sell Bai Yan’s son today?” Clenching his fist to the point its crunching, Bai Zheng Xiang was surging with fury in his eyes.
“The Flower Brothel tended to favor beautiful children, that’s why I tried to sell him. I know you’ve been trying to build up a relationship with that place.” Slowly getting up, she continues to weep with her sorrowful face: “Husband, we’ve been married for so many years and have always done everything in your best interest. That much you should know.”
It was obviously for her own selfishness that she tried to sell Bai Yan, but through her mouth, it turns into it’s for her husband. Can anyone get anymore shameless?
“Oh Yu Rong oh Yu Rong, you’ve done the most stupidest thing in the world.” Closing his eyes, the man made a very disappointed face.
There’s no lie that he’s disappointed with his wife. Part of it was due to the fact that Yu Rong’s been pretending in front of him all these years, but more than that….
After a long while of this silence, Bai Zheng Xiang finally opened his eyes with a gloom hovering over his head: “Did you know the man from back then is Di Cang, the Sovereign Prince? If you didn’t go ahead and try to sell Bai Yan on your own, we could’ve built a connection with that man!”
