“Have you forgotten? When we were young, we played together in Xin Yue House. When the second sister bullied us, you still protected me behind.”
“Sister, don’t joke anymore. Its my fault last night. I shouldn’t set you up with Nalan Feixue. But I, but I can’t help it. Nalan Feixue and Nalan Yurong forced me to do so. If I don’t do this, they will kill me.”
“Actually, I… I have planned to steal the antidote for sister after they left. I definitely won’t let sister marry Zhu Family. Sister, you believe me, okay?”
Hexi raised her eyebrows and smiled, “Nalan Ziyun, I’m so curious. Didn’t you keep saying that you didn’t have a useless sister like me? Nalan Zhengze told you in the study room that when you and I are not real brothers and sisters, aren’t you very happy? Why did you suddenly change your mind just now? You keep calling sister, do you think the word, sister is cheap?”
“You…how do you know?!!!” Nalan Ziyun yelled in horror, “How do you know what my father said to me in the study room… You… Nalan Hexi, are you a human or a ghost? What else did you discover?”
Hexi’s eyes were faint and cold. She sneered, “What did I discover? Nalan Zhengze said that I’m not his biological daughter, does that count? You said you wanted to pretend to be my brother and defraud An Lingyue’s relics from me, does that count? You two planned to marry me to the Zhu Family to let me be tortured so that I will seek help from Nalan Family and hand out An Lingyue’s relics in the end, does that count?”
The more Hexi said, the more Nalan Ziyun’s body trembled, and the panic on his face became more and more obvious.
His body moved back unconsciously, and his voice was trembling, “Nalan Hexi, you… what do you want to do? Don’t forget that I’m the young master of the Nalan Family, if you… you kill me, my father won’t let you go! And… and although you are not the child of Nalan Family, Nalan Family has done its duty to support you for so many years. You… how can you requite kindness with enmity? Wouldn’t you be afraid of being punished by God?”
“Done its duty to support me for so many years?” Hexi couldn’t help laughing. “YDo you know? Your dear father, Nalan Zhengze, was standing here just now. He said, An Lingyue’s two children, one was raised into a useless person and left in the courtyard to be bullied. Even the servants can beat and scold her. The other was tortured by him in every possible way, living a live that was worst than an animal. Is this what doing its duty to support me for many years like you said?”
Endless panic surged in Nalan Ziyun’s heart. His body was trembling as he shouted incoherently, “I don’t know; I really don’t know anything; it has nothing to do with me… I… I’m even Qixing Palace’s disciple. If you kill me… you will not end well. Please, don’t kill me… don’t!”
As he spoke, he saw Nangong Yu. He rushed over, knelt on the ground, and kowtowed to Nangong Yu, “Your Highness King of Hell, help me; please help me. I’m the young master of Nalan Family, as long as you save me, Nalan Family will become your possessions and work for you. And… and my beautiful elder sister, she is Master Xukong’s disciple. If you want, I… …I can give her to you as a concubine!”

Nalan Ziyue is pretty short on brains. Does he not remember what Nangong Yu said about Yurong before? And how much he clearly doted on Hexi? How on earth did this family ever climb to a position of power with this level of intelligence?
