"I was only five that year with no one to teach me. I relied entirely on my hard work to learn medical skills." Yun Chutian stuck out her tongue and said, "However, I already understand the correct answer for those few questions. Didn't I ask you about them back then?"
At that, Yun Luofeng nodded her head in satisfaction. "Let's keep this book as a memento."
The conversation between them had clearly revealed the real owner of that book.
Ouyang Xun's expression was ashen as he turned his head and glared at Ouyang Yue in fury. "What's going on? You said that your master gave you this book and she is Yun Luofeng? You had better provide an explanation right now."
Ouyang Yue knelt on the ground in fright as she trembled. "Father, your daughter knows her mistakes. Please forgive me."
"Forgive you? How am I to forgive you?" Ouyang Xun shut his eyes in pain. If it weren't for Ouyang Yue, he would not have regarded Yun Chutian as a monster and tried to have her burned at the stake.
All the more, he would not have missed the chance to butter up with two true gods.
That's right, the last sentence was Ouyang Xun's real intentions.
Being an Emperor required him to be a heartless person so how could he honestly care about his daughter? What he really cared about was merely himself.
"Chutian," Ouyang Xun's line of sight turned to Yun Chutian once again while the tone of his voice had also softened. "Your father was wrong back then and since you've returned, I will treat you well."
Yun Chutian revealed a disdainful smile. "I still remember how you wanted to burn me at the stake back in those days. If Mother hadn't saved me, I would've been dead. Moreover, there have always been rumors in Tianhuang City saying that Ouyang Yue is a goddess while I'm a witch that brought about misfortune. I believe those rumors were all the efforts of your people, right?"
Ouyang Xun's complexion became increasingly pale. He tightly clenched his fist while he felt endless regret.
"Goddess? Witch?" Yun Luofeng faintly smiled. "A rumor stops when it comes to a wise person but it seems like everyone in Tianhuang City is foolish. Since that's the case, there's no need for it to continue to exist! However, there is one thing correct and there's indeed a goddess in Tianhuang City. Only, that person is Chutian!"
She slowly walked toward Ouyang Xun. "If you had treated Yun Chutian well in those five years, Tianhuang City would also have flourished along with her. However, you were the ones who gave up this opportunity."
Ouyang Xun looked up and as he looked at Yun Luofeng's calm expression, his eyes were flooded with regret.
"Do you know why I took Chutian away?" Yun Luofeng's lips curled. "She was my daughter in her previous life and she had died to protect me. I waited five years for her before I found her in Tianhuang City but I did not expect... that you would have treated my daughter like that."
Ouyang Xun shut his eyes. He had regretted it. If he had known that Yun Chutian and Yun Luofeng had such a relationship, he would have never committed such a mistake
Unfortunately, there were no ifs in this world...
"Nianfeng," Yun Luofeng turned to Yun Nianfeng and said. "Chutian will be your wife in the future and you shall be responsible to protect her. Don't let off a single person that harmed her back in those days. Even if you have to burn the entire Tianhuang City, you have to let those foolish people pay the price!"
She found it hard to believe that if she had been slightly late, then she would have been separated from Yun Chutian once again. How could she possibly forgive those that hurt her in the past? Even if they merely gathered to watch the show, she would never let a single one of them off!
For example, back then when she merely wanted to prevent those people from humiliating her mother, she had dyed the entire city in blood. Since rumors are unstoppable using gentle means, she did not mind using ruthless methods!
