    "Kneel down!"

    Ye Jiuge's gaze was cold, as if a chilly breeze blew past.

    Pang! Hong Liu kneeled immediately.

    Ye Jiuge was preparing to interrogate the maid, when she overheard a few scoundrels

    hiding in the crowd trying to add fuel to the fire.

    "Rumors have mentioned that Ye Jiuge is arrogant and tyrannical. I can't believe that it

    is really true. If she dares to abuse her maid in public, we can never imagine how cruel

    she must be in private."

    "That's right. I think…"

    Before the scoundrel could finish speaking, he felt a pain in his waist as he collided with

    the Ye residence's main door with a bang.

    Ye Jiuge kicked each of them, one by one heaping the scoundrels into a pile.

    Hong Liu widened her eyes and looked fearfully at Ye Jiuge, whose entire body was

    radiating murderous energy.

    Is this still the cowardly and extremely spineless Eldest Miss?

    After Ye Jiuge finished dealing with the scoundrels, she turned her head to look at Hong

    Liu and yelled, "Speak! Who was it that actually directed you to ruin my reputation?"

    Her gaze blazed with the sharpness of a lightning bolt, and her aura, similarly, was like

    a blade. She radiated with imposing terror, as if she were Princess Iron Fan, descended

    to the mortal realms.

    Hong Liu trembled all over with fear. She almost spat out the truth. However, she

    thought about Second Miss's way of handling things and snapped out of it immediately.

    Stubbornly, she wanted to lie and falsely incriminate Ye Jiuge.

    At that moment, a pair of strange purple irises suddenly appeared inside Ye Jiuge's

    pitch black eyes. They emanated a faint glow, similar to that of a demon hiding in the

    dark of night.

    Hong Liu looked at these irises, and her soul was immediately pulled in. She stared

    blankly and opened her small lips. She couldn't help but speak the truth: "It was Second

    Miss who commanded me to bring some people along to accuse you falsely. She was

    the one who hired these scoundrels. She said that she wanted to completely sully your

    reputation and spread your tainted name far and wide!"

    There was an uproar in the crowd. The mastermind who had orchestrated all of this

    was, unexpectedly, the Second Miss of the Ye clan. The truth was too scandalous!

    As the public was sharing their opinions on the matter, the main door of the Ye

    residence abruptly opened. A team of guards dragged the scoundrels and the kneeling

    Hong Liu away from the entrance.

    Then, a middle-aged man wearing a blue brocade robe emerged.

    He had a handsome appearance—a high-bridged nose and an imposing look. This man

    was Ye Jiuge's father, Ye Yuxuan.

    He looked at his daughter, who had not returned home last night. He did not feel any

    tenderness or relief; instead, he exploded loudly at Ye Jiuge, pointing his fingers at her

    and shouting, "You—an evil, good-for-nothing daughter—have the gall to return!"

    Ye Jiuge smiled coldly in her heart. In a situation where his daughter had not returned

    for a night and then reappeared in such a miserable state, he had nothing to say other

    than this?

    Not only that, Ye Yuxuan had not appeared sooner, but at the exact moment when

    Hong Liu was confessing the truth about Ye Shanshan having harmed her. Wasn't that

    such a coincidence!

    "Why haven't you come inside yet? Stop being a disgrace out here!"

    Ye Yuxuan pointed to a small side entrance. It was the passageway used by the

    servants when they needed to exit and enter the Ye residence.

    "Your daughter does not know how she is supposed to enter the residence. Father, why

    don't you show me, since you once foisted yourself upon the Yun clan?" sneered Ye

    Jiuge.

    The penniless Ye Yuxuan had married into the Yun clan. His cultivated elixir knowledge

    and skills had been entirely funded by the Ye clan's wealth—when she was born, Ye

    Jiuge's surname had been Yun. Then, her grandfather had disappeared, and Ye

    Yuxuan had used the opportunity to cajole Ye Jiuge's mother into changing the Yun

    residence to the Ye residence and even asked her to change her surname.

    But these name changes did not change the fact that everything that Ye Yuxuan

    possessed belonged to the Yun clan! And Ye Jiuge was the only direct descendant of

    the Ye clan.

    "You are so shameless. You went out and fooled around the whole night. I do not know

    what kind of improper man you have hooked up with that you now dare to return and

    scheme after my assets!"

    Ye Yuxuan's face was ashen, and his gaze was fierce, like he wanted to swallow Ye

    Jiuge whole.

    The thing that he detested most in life was when someone mentioned how he had

    married into the Ye clan. Every time, he was forced to recall how inferior he had been

    back when Ye Tianwei was able to step all over him.

    "Ye Yuxuan, even if you are my father, not even you can slander me in such a malicious

    manner. You keep mentioning that I have hooked up with an improper man. Shouldn't

    you bring him forward?"

    Ye Jiuge's beautiful gaze emanated a coercive light.

    Her clothes were covered in blood, similar to a phoenix bathed in fire. The aura that was

    bursting from her body was making the people around her palpitate uncontrollably.

    Ye Yuxuan was completely silenced by Ye Jiuge's questions. He was simply defaming

    her, so where was he going to find this improper man? At the same time, he was also

    not going to allow this unfilial daughter to defy him!

    Ye Yuxuan pointed his finger at Ye Jiuge and wanted to continue to insult her, but she

    cut him off. "I, Ye Jiuge, have acted honorably. I am not like your ‘good' daughter, Ye

    Shanshan. Because she wanted to marry Dongfang Jianming, she stabbed me in the

    back and pushed me down into the Wanzhang Depths!"

    "What are you blathering on about? The Wanzhang Depths are bottomless. Even if a

    Northern Goshawk fell in, it wouldn't be able to fly out of there. How is it possible that

    you could climb out? You, unfilial daughter, have a mouth full of nonsense. You accuse

    your younger sister falsely and defy your elders. You are truly disloyal, unfilial, and

    immoral. Someone, bring out the punishment tools of our clan!"

    Ye Yuxuan did not believe Ye Jiuge's lies at all. In that moment, he only had one

    thought: to punish this unfilial daughter harshly in a cruel manner. He wanted to see

    whether she would dare be so impudent again after this!

    Ye Shanshan had predicted earlier that her father would punish Ye Jiuge. As she heard

    his words, she immediately handed him the horse whip that they used for punishment in

    the clan. This horse whip was woven from fine cowhide with tiny barbs on its surface.

    Needless to say, not only women were unable to endure a flogging from that whip, but

    strong men too.

    Ye Yuxuan was just scaring Ye Jiuge. He did not plan to use it.

    Ye Shanshan saw that her father was frozen with the horse whip in his hands, so she

    tugged on his sleeve and begged pitifully, "Father, you should never ever hit elder

    sister. Otherwise, when grandfather returns, you will be the one who is beaten!"

    Ye Shanshan's words only provoked Ye Yuxuan's anger even further. Both of his eyes

    were very red. To him, Ye Jiuge had become as repulsive as Yun Tianwei.

    "Today, I want you, an evil spawn, to know of who it is that really has all the authority in

    the Ye clan!"

    Ye Yuxuan did not hesitate as he raised the horse whip, ready to lash Ye Jiuge.

    "Father, you should never be impulsive!"

    Ye Shanshan's eyes were filled with tears as she pretended to stop him. On the

    surface, that impression of a deep and profound sisterly bond was emotionally moving.

    However, the private gaze she shot Ye Jiuge was full of glee.

    Ye Jiuge, this is the consequence of defying me!

    A glint of frostiness flitted past Ye Jiuge's eyes. With the speed of lightning, she yanked

    Ye Shanshan forward and kicked her, forcing her to kneel right in front of her.

    Ye Yuxuan's whip happened to land at that exact moment.

    Pa!

    The horse whip hit Ye Shanshan's body without any mercy.

    The barbs on its surface tore her clothes with a ripping sound. Her soft, white shoulder

    was exposed, and traces of blood, which gave the alluring impression of mistreatment,

    caused the spectators' eyes to widen.

    Ye Jiuge clapped her hands as she praised, "Father, you are truly wise. A person like

    Ye Shanshan, who is disloyal, unfilial, and immoral, should be punished using the clan's

    methods in public."

    Ye Shanshan had never thought that the whip would land on her body.

    She looked at Ye Jiuge in disbelief. This b*tch should die, who dares treat her like this!

    "Wow, it is so white!" Someone in the crowd watching the scene mentioned lewdly.

    Ye Shanshan could no longer endure the crowd's gaze, so she gathered her clothes

    back together. Wa! She cried and ran inside covering her face.

    Ye Yuxuan was not in any mood to care about Ye Shanshan's humiliation whatsoever.

    He widened his eyes, looking at Ye Jiuge as if he had just spotted a ghost. "You—how

    is it possible that you are using spiritual force?"
