At this moment, no one suspected that the Gu family had taken someone else’s corpse to impersonate Gu Tian. After all, Gu Tian was the Gu family’s own blood and flesh. No matter how shameless Old Man Gu could get, he definitely wouldn’t let someone unrelated enter the Gu family’s ancestral hall! That would be the greatest moral outrage!
Even Elder Yu believed it completely…
In the entire Hundred Herb Hall, only Gu Ruoyun’s expression remained calm from start to finish. She didn’t say anything, and others couldn’t tell what she was thinking.
“Yun’er, I’ve already fulfilled your request. What about our promise back then…”
Old Man Gu looked at Gu Ruoyun nervously.
The Plum Faction had not participated in the auction this time because he had promised them that he could get a Beauty Rejuvenation Pill from Hundred Herb Hall. If he couldn’t finish this task, then you could imagine the rage from the Plum Faction.
“Go back,” Gu Ruoyun raised her head and said expressionlessly, “I’ll give you the pill once I’ve confirmed the identities of these two people.”
Hearing this, Old Man Gu burst into agitated rage: “Gu Ruoyun, what do you mean by this? Are you saying that I found two random corpses to deceive you? No matter what, Gu Tian was my son and I loved him dearly! How could I let someone else impersonate him and be buried with my Gu family ancestors? This is practically an insult to my Gu family!”
The old man spoke so righteously, as if Gu Ruoyun was some criminal who had committed an unforgivable crime that everyone should punish.
However, Gu Ruoyun smiled.
For some reason, upon seeing her smile, the old man’s heart suddenly trembled for a bit. A sense of unease started rising in his heart.
“Then can I ask you, only bones were left of these two people. How were you able to recognise them as my parents? Or perhaps I should ask, since you’ve already known where their corpses were, did you purposely leave them out to rot without letting them enter the ancestral graves? Why did you do such a thing?”
The old man choked up and his face turned red. He opened his mouth, but couldn’t say a single word to refute her.
Upon hearing Gu Ruoyun’s questions, Elder Yu abruptly came to his senses. He stared unwaveringly at the two corpses before him before shouting suddenly: “No! They’re not Gu Tian and his wife! Gu Tian injured his bones before and it had never recovered. Although these two corpses have already rotted, it’s clear that there aren’t any traces of injuries on the bones. I’m sure that he’s not Gu Tian!”
Since one of the corpses wasn’t Gu Tian, then that proved that the other one wasn’t Dongfang Yu…
“What? Elder Yu, what do you mean by that? These two corpses aren’t Gu Tian and his wife?”
“I’ve really underestimated how shameless Old Man Gu can get. For the sake of getting his way, he can even find someone else to impersonate his own son. Is this something a human would do?”
After the people who hadn’t yet left Hundred Herb Hall heard Elder Yu’s words, they tossed disdainful looks at Old Man Gu.
Old Man Gu was filled with rage upon seeing those looks. He gritted his teeth fiercely and said: “What do you mean by this? Gu Ruoyun, are you purposely playing me?”
He had already seen that Gu Ruoyun had no intention of giving him the pill at all. Everything had been for the sake of playing him!
“Playing you?” Gu Ruoyun raised her eyebrows and smiled, “Did you think I have the free time to do that? I simply wanted to force you to hand over my parents’ remains so I could let them rest in peace. I didn’t think that you would actually find two corpses to deceive me. Are you sure that I was playing you?”
That’s right, she had indeed played a trick on him, but she wasn’t so stupid as to admit it.
“Haha!” Old Man Gu laughed crazily and gritted his teeth. He said viciously, “Gu Ruoyun, I’ve really underestimated you! You even managed to seduce Hundred Herb Hall’s Elder Yu. However, for the sake of your own desires, you seduced an old man and borrowed his authority to swagger about. Don’t you think that it’s too shameful? How could Gu Tian have borne something as shameless as you! If I had known earlier that you would turn out this way, I would have killed you when you were little! It’s better than having you be such an outrage now! You’re shaming my Gu family!”
