Huan Qing Yan’s heart was in a rage, she did not know for sure if the body was facing down due to the process of removing the clothes but the culprit not bothering to flip it back was a fact. Huan Qing Yan’s hands trembled as she stretched out her hands to position her Papa’s body properly…
Upon seeing the face, Huan Qing Yan jumped in shock! “Who is this person? This is not Papa!”
“Ah! My husband, where is my husband? What is happening? Who is this person?” Madam Huan immediately rolled her eyes and nearly fainted.
Like most kids, Huan Xing Han was sensitive to the reactions of his closest family, he began to cry in the arms of the serving girl upon noticing the intense emotions coming out from his mother.
The elders of the clan relatives also came over to inspect and were all shocked at what they saw “This is indeed not Bei Ming, who is this? Did a ghost do this?”
“Or maybe… sister-in-law, who is this strange man? Where did you hide Bei Ming’s body?” someone immediately accused Madam Huan.
Madam Huan had been in deep grief over the past three days, this led to her physical and mental strength to be in an exceptionally weak condition. Now that she discovered her husband’s corpse had suddenly disappeared, anxiety and shocked assaulted her before her vision turned dark as she fainted.
Huan Qing Yan immediately held on tightly to her mother and passed her to the head serving maid behind them. It was better if she stayed unconscious for now and use the chance to recuperate, with how chaotic the current situation has turned, its likely she would not be able to handle everything that’s coming.
The only plan she has now was to keep calm.
The valuables within the coffin were gone, the corpse was secretly swapped. It’s likely that these clan relatives were involved one way or the other.
However, the valuables aside, what she could not understand was why take the body…?
Even if the death was related to that heart digging demon murderer, there was no need to steal the whole body, just taking the heart would be enough.
What was happening?
At that moment, the Silver Mask Guard seemed to be feeling frustrated at the commotion caused by the others, he turned his head towards Huan Qing Yan and said, “No need to fluster, I will find out where is Imperial Chef Huan’s body located…”
Huan Qing Yan nodded her head in appreciation.
She has now completely forgiven this Brim Hat Bro for his past actions of not lending her a hand when she was in that forest pit as well as the grudge from that kick during the banquet…
Brim Hat Bro was actually a pretty decent person!
The faces of some clan relatives standing within the ceremonial hall immediately paled by a few shades upon hearing his words.
Suddenly, a shadow came out of the Silver Mask Guard, it moved like lightning and flew out of the ceremonial hall before anyone could look at it properly.
Huan Qing Yan was secretly shocked, was that lightning quick shadow his Spirit Treasure?
Its high movement speed made it difficult to determine the identity of the Spirit Treasure, maybe it was a pure agility type Spirit Treasure?
All she knows was that this Silver Mask Guard has really powerful abilities, were the hidden forces of Hanging Cloud Empire this powerful?
From the memories of the reincarnated girl, they did not seem to be this powerful!
Let’s consider this matter for a later time, finding her Papa’s body was the most important thing now.
Huan Xing Han was eventually taken away by the nanny while Madam Huan remained unconcious. During the wait, the ceremonial hall was so quiet that everyone could hear a pin drop if it happens.
After a few breathes, the Silver Mask Guard began to move and said, “Found it. At the back gate.”
As the words left his mouth, he was already leaving the hall.
Huan Qing Yan was surprised for a moment before she followed closely behind, the expressions of the clan relatives also changed as they quickly followed along.
Upon reaching the back gate of the Huan Estate, several house servants were found injured and lying on the ground groaning in pain.
Rolling on the ground in front of them was also a large sack, no one knows what was in it…
