“That’s because you know it’s mine,” Ye Xiaotian said teasingly.

“Try mine and tell me if you can taste a difference between the two,” said Mo Li.

Ye Xiaotian took a sip out of his glass before trying hers. “It does taste a bit different,” he concluded with a frown on his forehead.

Mo Li turned around to carry the pot of plant on the window ledge and showed it to him. “I haven’t been drinking the milk served to me the past few days – I’ve been pouring them into this pot of plant instead. Look, the waxy green leaves have all turned yellow and withered. I’m wondering, could there be something wrong with this milk?”

Ye Xiaotian took a closer look and realized that it was indeed so. His face immediately stiffened with dismay.

“Go watch the surveillance camera footage with me.”

“Okay.”

They arrived at the surveillance cameras monitor room and extracted the footage from the surveillance camera in the kitchen.

In the end, they discovered that whenever Tao Zi was pouring milk, she would add an unknown transparent liquid into the glass.

They looked at each other in dismay. Ye Xiaotian was hot with fury while Mo Li remained rather calm.

In hindsight, the consequences would have been dire, had she been careless.

Just as Ye Xiaotian was about to reprimand Tao Zi, Mo Li quickly stopped him. “Someone definitely instigated her to do it. If we punish her now, we might not get the answer we want. There’s no harm in waiting a little longer.”

“I’ve discovered that you’re far sharper than I imagined.”

“I just pay attention to the details. Actually, I realized that it pays to be alert and careful,” Mo Li said smilingly.

“Thank you for being so meticulous. If you didn’t discover that the milk tasted unusual, I wouldn’t have suspected anything either. I won’t be able to forgive myself should anything happen to you,” Ye Xiaotian said solemnly while staring at her.

Pursing her lips, Mo Li answered, “Let’s pretend we don’t know anything about this for now. Get someone to send that glass of milk to the lab for a chemical test and find out what’s in there.”

“Okay.”

After exiting from the surveillance cameras monitor room, Mo Li returned to the bedroom while Ye Xiaotian brought the glass of milk for a lab test personally.

Mo Li laid down in bed and gazed at her child, who was not too far away. She was filled with fear and terror. Would the child become an easy target for the perpetrator if she leaves her with the nanny all day?

There were only very few people who could be the possible masterminds behind the scheme. However, Mo Li did not dare to pinpoint anyone without sufficient evidence.

However, it alarmed her to always be wary of the people around her.

It was already afternoon by the time Ye Xiaotian returned.

Holding the lab test results in his hand, he said, “I got someone to look into the call log on her mobile phone. We’ll find out very soon if she has contacted anyone familiar to us.”

Mo Li took the test report from him and began perusing the content. “What do these mean?” she asked, referring to the numbers and information written on the report, which she could not understand.

“It’s a kind of drug that would cause one to develop cancer rapidly. One month of consecutive dosing is all it takes to reach the final stages of cancer,” Ye Xiaotian answered.

“Such drugs exist?” Mo Li exclaimed in utter shock.

“Of course they do. The mastermind had better watch out. He or she is going to be dead meat once I find out who it is,” Ye Xiaotian said with an icy cold glare in his eyes.

“I’m the main target, which means it’s definitely a woman behind this,” deduced a terrified Mo Li.

Ye Xiaotian looked at her and said, “Don’t dwell on it anymore. We’ll interrogate that servant once we find out more. Would you like to go take a walk now? It’s sunny outside and there’s no wind.”

“Okay.”

During her postnatal confinement period, the furthest Mo Li had gone for a walk was around the yard at home.

They strolled along the sidewalk, hand in hand. Mo Li felt exceptionally relaxed to be able to take a breather.

“Why don’t we give the child a name now?”

“What would you like to name her?” Ye Xiaotian asked.

After some thought, Mo Li answered, “How does ‘Yingying’ sound?”

“Ye Yingying? Doesn’t sound good. How about ‘Jiani’?” Ye Xiaotian rejected her suggestion directly.

“Sounds good. Ye Jiani?” Mo Li agreed.

“Yes, it’s settled then. Jiani, Jiani, Jiani, my daughter. Did you know? I adored her instantly the moment I saw her little face for the first time. She’s too cute,” Ye Xiaotian chirped, elated and proud to be a father.

“She looks too much like you. If only she resembled me a little,” Mo Li lamented.

“She has to resemble me to be beautiful. You’re at most pleasant-looking, understand?”

“No, I think I’m quite pretty myself,” Mo Li protested.

“That’s what you think.”

“Ye Xiaotian!”

“Yes? I’m not deaf, you don’t have to shout.”

“I’m going to ignore you,” said Mo Li as she strode forward quickly. Ye Xiaotian hurriedly chased after her and hugged her tightly from behind while continuing to move forward slowly. “I was just joking. In my eyes, you’re the most beautiful woman in this world.”

“Compared to your mother?” Mo Li threw a difficult question at him.

“I’m very fair and just. So, you two are equally beautiful to me,” Ye Xiaotian answered softly.

Mo Li turned around to look at him and asked, “If Sun Weiwei was behind the act, how are you going to handle the matter?”

“Weiwei?” It had clearly never occured to Ye Xiaotian that Sun Weiwei could be the culprit. “If she was the one who did it, I’ll definitely teach her a good lesson. Other than my mother, there’s no one I will tolerate and let off. I will pursue the matter for sure. It’s seriously too vicious, after all.”

Mo Li was relieved to hear his answer. “Oh, they’re back from doing investigations.”

Ye Xiaotian took a look to see that his underlings had returned.

“Young Sir, this is the call history.”

Ye Xiaotian and Mo Li then began perusing the call history.

A grave and sullen expression formed on his face. “I never expected this,” he said, clenching the piece of paper in his hands.

“Who did she contact the most frequently?” Mo Li asked.

“Come with me.” Ye Xiaotian did not answer her question and instead held her hand and began walking towards the house.

Upon arriving in the living room, Ye Xiaotian instructed the butler, “Gather all the servants.”

“Yes, Young Sir.”

Not long after, all the servants of the villa assembled in the spacious living room.

Ye Xiaotian stood rooted to the ground while holding on to Mo Li’s hand tightly.

Staring at the servants before him, he raised Mo Li’s hand in the air and announced, “Very soon, she will become the Young Madam of the Ye family, my wife. Yet, someone amongst you is trying to cause her harm. How do you think I should punish this person?”

As soon as he finished speaking, the servants looked at each other in dismay and began discussing amongst themselves.

“Who would have that audacity?”

“Exactly, is she tired of living?”

“How terrifying.”

“…”

“Young Sir, is that true? Who is the person? We’ll single her out immediately,” said the butler, who was also greatly taken aback.

Ye Xiaotian let go of Mo Li’s hand and glared at the servants. “The person behind this, show yourself now. I’ve already checked the footage of the surveillance cameras in the kitchen. Things are going to get ugly if I have to expose you myself,” he warned.

In no time, Tao Zi immediately stepped forward, trembling uncontrollably from head to toe in immense fear.
