Ch 167 – Shedding All Pretense of Cordiality

Lei Yu’s arms lightly shook and Lafayette’s arms naturally released themselves. She suddenly took a few steps back before finally stabilizing herself, a layer of mist already forming in her eyes. She still clenched her teeth and started undoing her clothes revealing her pale white skin and tempting body.

These actions by Lafayette were making Lei Yu somewhat bored. Even though it couldn’t be considered a lot, but this was already the fourth time he experienced something like this. Once with Cui Ying Ying, then Nami, then Telephassa in ancient Greece, and now counting Lafayette was the fourth time. This trick the girls kept using was beginning to make Lei Yu uninterested.

Lei Yu just left his room and went next door to Ai Er’s room.

“I’m in hiding – let me borrow your room so I can hide.” Lei Yu said as he grinned cheekily.

“What? What’s going on now?” Ai Er asked as she peeked out into the hallway.

Lei Yu immediately pulled Ai Er in for a hug. As Ai Er’s face was against Lei Yu’s well-developed chest, her body couldn’t help trembling. Even though these two have had some intimate times together, they still haven’t done “that” act yet so Ai Er still felt a bit shy at times.

“So hateful, the door’s not fully shut yet!” Ai Er lightly smacked Lei Yu with her blushing face; her rosy cheeks were already buried inside Lei Yu’s embrace.

In the next room over, Lafayette’s eyes were empty without any emotions. She looked like a dead person that’s able to eat and walk. She put on her own messy clothes and smoothed it out before going back down the stairs.

At this time, Lei Yu silently followed her.

Lafayette had returned to her father’s room without saying a word. Whatever Hawes asked, she just nodded or shook her head without saying a thing.

“Say something! What exactly happened? Did you not undress in front of him?”

Lafayette suddenly raised her head. Her father’s previous words and deeds had already made her completely disgusted with him. What she never expected was her own father would actually say these immoral words in front of her. The tears in her eyes could help start dripping down her face again.

“You’re crying?! What’s the use in crying? Tell me, did you try to seduce him?”

Lafayette cried while saying: “I stripped! I stripped completely naked, are you happy now?”

“Then what did he do? What reactions did he have?” Hawes continued asking, not caring about her daughter’s indignity

Lei Yu was standing outside the door holding his cell phone; even he thought that Hawes should die a thousand times right now. A father that was even lower than an animal really chilled a person’s heart.

“He just left me in the room and walked out himself, he didn’t even say anything to me!”

Not wanting to say anything further, Lafayette directly went for the door. Once she saw Lei Yu standing outside, she completely lost her thoughts but quickly lowered her head and left. No one would understand the turmoil she was experiencing in her heart right now. Everything seemed to be premeditated, making her want to find a hole and just hide inside it forever.

Lei Yu put away his cell phone and went back upstairs.

That night, nothing else happened. Lei Yu successfully completed a cycle of cultivation and woke up early feeling in good spirits. After washing up, he went downstairs and noticed a sumptuous breakfast was already prepared.

“Lei Yu, come try this. I had this beef dish specially prepared for you, it’s really tasty!” Mrs. Hawes had a face full of smiles like she was expecting something. Lei Yu knew that she was involved with her husband’s plot yesterday, that’s why they sent Ai Er away and had Lafayette make her move. Lei Yu didn’t want to expose it. If the situation wasn’t at its last resort, then he didn’t want to make the atmosphere too awkward. With a light smile, “Thank you Mrs. Hawes.”

The Pope’s breakfast had already been sent to him upstairs by his personal staff, so that’s why he didn’t dine with Lei Yu this time.

At this moment, Mr. Hawes appeared while stretching with a yawn. Seeing Lei Yu and glancing around and not seeing Ai Er with him, he excitedly came over. “Lei Yu, did you sleep well last night?”

Lei Yu nodded but didn’t even look at him. “Not bad, how about you Mr. Hawes?”

“Very good.” Hawes’s face was covered with a smile as he leaned towards Lei Yu’s ears and whispered: “Lafayette has already told me everything about last night. It’s no big deal; I am very willing to accept you into our big family. I won’t tell anyone what you did to Lafayette, as long as you promise to join the Burlinder family so everything will take its course.”

Hawes’s voice was very low, to the point that even Lei Yu had difficulty hearing. But he did eventually hear every single word clearly. Hawes was trying to frame him, making Lei Yu’s brows tightly knit together.

Pushing Hawes away, Lei Yu conspicuously said out loud: “Tell me Mr. Hawes, what did I do to your precious daughter Lafayette last night that other people shouldn’t know about?”

Hawes never imagined that Lei Yu would dare to openly say this out loud without shame. His face slightly changed but quickly reverted back to his smiling face. “Since you already know what I’m talking about, is it really necessary to say anything more? I hope you will consider my proposal since this could be considered as taking responsibility for Lafayette, am I right?”

“Father!” Just at this time, it is unknown when but Lafayette was standing at the entrance to the dining room. “Don’t you think you’ve gone too far with this?”

Last night, Lafayette clearly saw Lei Yu holding his cell phone as if he was recording something and she didn’t bother telling her father. She never expected such a scene would appear before her early in the morning.

“Shut your mouth, your father is seeking justice for you!” Hawes had now shed all pretense of cordiality. Since Lei Yu had publicly asked for clarification, then he could only adapt his scheme and use it against him. “You should be clear on what you did to my daughter. I have one simple advice to give you: Your girlfriend is still upstairs right? I’m sure there’s no benefit to you if she were to find out about it.”

Among the people present were the eighteen Holy Knights, Black Panther, Gray Bear, Hu Jiong and a few Fifth Order experts. The Holy Knights didn’t really care for the matter while people familiar with Lei Yu thought it was funny and ridiculous. They’ve clearly seen how many beauties were around Lei Yu. Based on attractiveness, Lafayette could not compete with Cui Ying Ying; her body couldn’t compete with Nami’s voluptuous body; yet Lei Yu still only loved a single person – Ai Er. Now that someone was saying Lei Yu did the deed with Hawes’s daughter, not even ghosts would believe such a lie.

Furthermore, would Lei Yu even bother to eye the Burlinder family’s inheritance? That was even more laughable. Just his identity, Lei Yu was the Lei family’s noble second young master that possessed a wealth that could rival a country’s. Based on status, he was a heavyweight that his own country took special attention towards. When we put all of this on the table, one could see how miniscule the Burlinder family was and how ridiculous Hawes’s words were.

Lei Yu didn’t even bother saying anything and simply took out his cell phone and placed it on the table. The screen on the cell phone already showed it was the audio player application and he only had to press the play button and the truth would reveal itself.

Liu Hao picked up the cell phone and pressed the round Play button. The sound of a conversation then started…
