Chapter 170 “Threat (1)”
Bai Zheng Xiang shuddered at the statement because he’s got the strange feeling that this girl would surely carry out her threat today.
“Bai Yan, I’m your father!” Tightly clenching those fists, his eyes burned with rage: “Must you push us over the edge?”
“If you don’t want to let your strength revert back to before then return the pills in which my mother gave you!”
From the day she returned to this place, Bai Yan had already made the decision to take back everything that once belonged to her mother. No more, no less.
Bai Zheng Xiang’s eyes were full of mockery: “I originally didn’t want to go too far based on our relationship, but now that you are willing to ignore the bond between us then don’t blame me!”
Pricking her brow, Huh…. Can it be, this man still has something in his hands that can threaten me?
“I know what you’ve been doing recently.” Bai Zheng Xiang’s expression turned cold: “The reason why you can be so arrogant is because of the Flower Brothel’s backing. Otherwise, where would you find the courage to make so much clamor in from of me?”

Laughing hard in her stomach, Bai Yan had trouble keeping herself from breaking into tears.
“Oh isn’t that ironic, there’s some people here who can’t even get in touch with the Flower Brothel when they try.” Leaning leisurely on the chair, a gorgeous smile arose from her face.
Prior to this, Bai Zheng Xiang had tried several times to make a visit to this old manor after learning it belongs to the Flower Brothel. Unfortunately for him, the guards would drive him away at every turn, let alone let him step inside. If not for this case, Bai Yan would never allow such an evil hearted man to come here.
Bai Zheng Xiang’s face sank, “Bai Yan, you finally admits it eh!”
“Admit what?” Asked Bai Yan, her eyes confused.
“Admit that you are the leading prostitute of the Flower Brothel!” Sad in his face, Bai Zheng Xiang looked exactly like a father that’s disappointed over his daughter’s lost way.
Bai Yan was dumbfounded here.
Leading prostitute? And it’s me who admitted it?
How come I didn’t know about this?
Without paying heed to the strange frowning expression on his daughter’s face, Bai Zheng Xiang continues on with his ignorant ramble: “I know back then it was Yu Rong who wronged you, but you are not a good person either. Otherwise, how can you become the leading prostitute inside the Flower Brothel in merely five years? If Lord Cang were to learn of this matter, what would he think of you? Would he still marry you?”
Not getting angry, Bai Yan instead broke out into a fitting laugh: “And who is it that told you this?”
“You don’t need to know who told me this, you just need to know I now control your deepest secret,” his eyes gloomy as he states this. “I originally wanted to keep this secret hidden away because of our bond, but now that you won’t let the Bai House go, it’s only fair I turn this around. Likewise, I won’t let you or the Lan House go!”
Watching the beaming confidence in the man’s eye, Bai Yan’s interest was honestly piqued here: “So what is it that you want?”
She’s not going to waste words here. Even if she denies the accusation, it’s a certainty this dumb man will keep pushing the idea. If that’s the case, she might as well pry out whatever plans he has in mind.
“I have already brought back Lanyue’s dowry, but I will also take them back with me in a bit. When the time come, you can just tell Lord Cang that you’ve received them.”
From the very beginning, he had never intended to return these dowries. The reasoning for why he had gathered everything was mainly because of Di Cang’s men watching his every move. But whether or not Bai Yan really accepted these dowries were another matter. That’s something out of Lord Cang’s control.
Sneering, Bai Yan’s gaze was full of ridicule: “And why should I do as you wish?”
“Because I know you are the leading prostitute of the Flower Brothel, that’s why.” Pompous in his posture, he confidently raises his chin: “In addition, I also want you to tell Lord Cang that the one from six years ago is your sister Zhi and not you.”
