Chapter 397: Probe

Xiao Zi Xuan sent everyone out. Her goal now was to put on an act and drag Ning Meng Yao into it.

When that time comes, she would not be as willful as she is right now, right?

Xiao Zi Xuan walked to the side and looked at her well-behaved son. She rubbed his cheeks and had a faint smile: “Only mother’s precious son will not betray me and will always be with me.

She gently hugged the child into her embrace, Xiao Zi Xuan had a lovely expression in contrast to her earlier vicious expression.

When Xiao Zi Xuan was busy scheming against Ning Meng Yao, she was unaware that the man she trusted and loved was investigating her.

”What did you say? Xiao Zi Xuan is not Xiao Yi Lin’s biological daughter?” Ling Luo opened his eyes wide in disbelief, he looked at the person in front of him, his eyes were filled with disbelief.

”Yes, Duke Xiao had realized it a month ago but didn’t openly declare it.”

Ling Luo furrowed his brows, he suddenly did not understand his father-in-law. Since she was not his child, why did he treat her so well? Wasn’t he raising someone else’s child?

He recalled some time ago, Duke Xiao had even visited Ling Residence, his meaning was obvious, it was for him to know that Xiao Zi Xuan was his daughter and he would not allow others to bully her.

It was just a simple act, but Ling Luo found it incomprehensible right now.

”Continue investigating,” Ling Luo narrowed his eyes, he felt it was deeply related to Xiao Zi Xuan not being herself anymore.

”Yes.”

After that person left, Ling Luo narrowed his eyes, he then stood up and headed to Xiao Zi Xuan’s courtyard.

When he arrived, she was playing with their child, seeing him enter, her face had a stiff smile: “Luo, you’re here.”

”En,” Ling Luo walked over, he sat by the side and watch the two play, he looked at Xiao Zi Xuan after the child fell asleep.

”Why haven’t I seen you return to Xiao Residence recently?” Ling Luo had been looking at Xiao Zi Xuan when he asked.

Sure enough, Xiao Zi Xuan seemed to be flustered after hearing Ling Luo’s question, it was as if she was afraid he would find out about something.

Ling Luo narrowed his eyes, he seemed to have some thoughts when he looked at Xiao Zi Xuan: “Xuan’er, what happened to you?”

Xiao Zi Xuan displayed a forceful smile: “It’s nothing, father is really angry with me because of that token,” Xiao Zi Xuan lowered her gaze and was feeling depressed, it seemed to be true no matter how he saw it, there wasn’t the slightest trace of falsehood.

However, Ling Luo could tell from her eyes that she was still flustered.

If he was really just angry, it was understandable that she was feeling depressed, but why was she feeling flustered? It was really doubtful.

”Oh, I see. How can there be an overnight feud between father and daughter, father-in-law will definitely forgive you,” Ling Luo smiled and looked at Xiao Zi Xuan, his gentle expression with his doting gaze was impeccable no matter how one saw it.

However, Xiao Zi Xuan was feeling troubled, she was afraid Ling Luo could tell, that way, her life in Ling Residence would inevitably plummet.

Ling Luo did not know about Xiao Zi Xuan’s worry and fear, he only looked at her and softly consoled her, trying to find out something from her, but Xiao Zi Xuan’s lips were suddenly sealed tightly this time, it seems he would not be able to dig out any information.

He looked at Xiao Zi Xuan as if lost in thought, seeing her like this, something big must have happened in Xiao Residence.

Xiao Zi Xuan panicked looking at Ling Luo’s gaze, she displayed an ugly smile: “Luo, why are you looking at me like this?”

Ling Luo smiled and shook his head: “Nothing, I noticed your face seems pale, is there anything?”

”Nothing, I feel like I’ve let my father down, I’m feeling remorseful,” Xiao Zi Xuan’s gaze was somewhat dejected, she recalled Xiao Yi Lin’s words and felt regretful. If she did not do such a thing, would father treat her that way?

Ling Luo only smiled seeing she was unwilling to speak, he pulled her into his embrace and consoled her softly: “Don’t be upset, you are father-in-law’ daughter, how could he really be angry at you?”
