The Reborn Young Master’s Pampered Cousin (53)
Bai shi was sitting on a chair, trembling with anger.
She saw Bai Weiwei come in and immediately stood up. She said through gritted teeth, “Weiwei, you… are you two already together or not.”
Bai Weiwei took a deep breath, keeping to her character settings, trying again to let people see that she was actually trying to frame Qi Chimu.
She could only depend on her acting skills.
Bai Weiwei lifted her head. Seeing the fury in Bai shi’s eyes, she seemed somewhat afraid.
Her fingers were trembling violently, as though feeling a guilty conscience, but she couldn’t help but shout, “How could we be together? Nothing happened to us.”
But Bai shi had already noticed her small movements.
How could she not understand her daughter?
If she truly was being framed, she would have long thrown things around in rampant arrogance.
How could she feel guilty?
Bai shi inspected the clothes on Bai Weiwei’s body. Two of the buttons had been incorrectly fastened.
There were also man-made tears in the skirt.
With her shrewd and sharp eyes, everything was made clear in an instant.
Qi Chimu and her daughter. In the chaos of last night, something truly had happened.
Perhaps… it was not with Qi Chimu.
It was possible she had been sullied by a bandit.
Bai Weiwei didn’t notice Bai shi’s complicated mood. She stewed in thought for a while, thinking of the expressions of the vicious female supporting leads she had seen in dramas.
Then, with a clearly vicious expression, she tugged Bai shi’s clothes and cried, “Mother, Qi Chimu hates me to death, he wants to kill me, you must kill him quickly ba.”
The tears were false, but the guilt was evident, and the viciousness even more so.
No one here was stupid.
Wasn’t Bai Weiwei’s conduct clearly indicating that something shameful had happened between her and Qi Chimu?
Bai shi almost fainted in anger. But right now, she needed to think things through.
She knew that her daughter had bullied Qi Chimu for many years. She had an impatient temper, but she definitely would not have the courage to kill someone.
After being captured and taken away by the bandits, their escape and safe arrival to the public road must certainly have been through Qi Chimu’s guidance.
Because she was well aware that her daughter, who hardly ever went out, would not have this kind of ability.
This was equivalent to saving Bai Weiwei.
But Bai Weiwei wanted to kill Qi Chimu as soon as they returned.
Bai shi’s voice finally quivered. “Weiwei, tell your mother, did a bandit…”
Bai Weiwei immediately denied, “No, I did not, mother, you must believe me.”
Bai shi saw the guilt and fear in Bai Weiwei’s eyes grow more obvious.
As she thought… she had been sullied by bandits.
And Qi Chimu was the witness, so Bai Weiwei wanted to kill him as soon as she returned.
Bai shi’s heart ached so much she staggered back several steps before standing firm. Her gaze was fierce. Perhaps it was right to kill Qi Chimu and conceal this matter.
Just as she thought this–
–Qi Chimu, who had kept his head lowered, finally lifted his head with great difficulty.
He watched Bai Weiwei with eyes of extreme darkness.
He had heard her words just now, but his favorability had remained unchanged.
The tears in Bai Weiwei’s eyes continued to fall. She was afraid that Bai shi didn’t believe she had been defiled by bandits.
She wanted to wash clean Qi Chimu’s alleged crime of wanting to murder her.
So she could only let everyone know that she was framing Qi Chimu.
Bai Weiwei felt that it really wasn’t easy for her, framing Qi Chimu while also working hard to put on an act of framing him.
Bai shi completely believed it. She said coldly, “Qi Chimu actually dared to seek to murder you like this…”
Bai Weiwei’s mouth twitched. She underestimated this lady’s viciousness.
Sure enough, she was the lady who had sent Qi Chimu to the west1 with a cup of poisoned tea.
For Bai Weiwei’s reputation, she was planning to eliminate2 Qi Chimu.

Cheese: my theory as i was translating was bai shi marrying bai weiwei off to qi chimu to take the blame of “sullying” her lol but theres still time for me to be right! there’s like 50 more chapters in the arc
