“Don’t try to reason with me with all the crap about the ways of government officials. All I know is that because of that lowly servant, my Feng Er went missing. She is the one who killed my child. If I do not completely sever her into pieces, how can I vent this anger of mine!”
Liu Yu had just been caught red-handed for using executing torture for personal reasons. And now, his own mother continued to shoot her mouth off. His expression became strict, “Mother, mind your words.”
As he spoke, he stealthily took a glance at Rong Leng who was standing behind.
Seeing that Rong Leng did not look over, he heaved a sigh of relief, pulled Liu Lyu clan aside and conversed softly.
Liu Wei leaned at the stone pillar at the corridor. She sarcastically spouted, “Guess if you think we can take away the corpse.”
Her voice was not loud, but it was loud enough for Rong Leng who was standing the closest to her to hear her properly. The man raised his eyes and lightly replied, “Liu Yu is a clever man. He would not let a woman cause trouble.”
Liu Wei shot him a glance, “Then if he is a filial son, doesn’t that mean we would not win against his mother?”
“If so, his title as a vice minister ought to be stripped.”
Liu Wei raised her brows, “So harsh?”
“A man who cannot separate personal and official matters; stripping off his title is benevolence to the civilians.”
Liu Wei returned her gaze to the front.
She saw the situation as if Liu Yu had talked through Liu Lyu clan. Even though the Liu Lyu clan looked extremely unhappy, she still had a pair of phoenix eyes gazing at them.
They came over and Liu Yu continued, “We will send the corpse over right this instance.” As he finished, he looked at Liu Wei again, “Don’t mind me if I ask again. Can Sir figure out the whereabouts of my fifth brother just from a corpse of a servant?”
When he finished asking, Liu Lyu clan looked over too. From that, she now knew that it was neither the capital magistrate nor the Zheng Ge department wanted the corpse. Instead, it was this unmanly white-robed gentleman who was wearing a feathered hat that wanted the corpse.
Liu Wei explained, “The disappearance of the fifth young master is a mystery. When did the culprit abduct the fifth young master and when did he leave the prime minister manor? We all do not know all the answers to these questions. However, those servants that were serving the young master would at least have some idea. Didn’t you say Xi Que was in the room right then? Then she would have witnessed the whole process. It is such a waste that the lady had beaten her to death.”
Liu Lyu clan coldly smiled, “All these, does the Sir think that I have never thought before?”
“Then has the Lady interrogated already?”
“That lowly servant refused to admit no matter what even when the birches landed on her. At her last breath, she continued to insist that she did not know the reason.”
“Is that why the lady executed her?”
Liu Yu’s voice became louder, “Sir, please mind your words.”
Liu Wei ignored him, “Anyway, she is dead. Saying anything more is meaningless. I am just trying to find the truth within a corpse.”
“What exactly can you find from a corpse?” Liu Yu still could not comprehend.
Liu Wei laughed, “Sometimes, a corpse speaks more reliably and trustworthy than the words of a living person.”
Liu Yu became silent. He pondered a little and calculated.
After all, the guest was brought over personally by General Rong and may really have some sort of outstanding capabilities.
Let a corpse speak? He is definitely interested to experience such an odd sight.
