Just as Qian w.a.n.guan finished his sentence, Jiang Yi suddenly kicked him, sending him back by at least ten feet. Jiang Yi's face was filled with anger as he shouted coldly, "Qian w.a.n.guan! Do you think it is fun to play me?! Is 'Your Highness' meant to be used so casually? Do you want my whole household to be sentenced to death?"
Qian w.a.n.guan climbed up and rubbed on his chest, but he wasn't angry. Instead, he looked at Jiang Yi in confusion. He saw that Jiang Yi was speaking honestly and asked, "Jiang Yi, didn't Jiang Yunhai tell you about your status? According to our speculation with the information we have, you are definitely the son of the Western Garrison Liege Lord—Jiang Yiliu's brother from a different mother!"
Jiang Yi's body shuddered, but he still didn't believe Qian w.a.n.guan. He scoffed, "Where is your evidence? On what basis are you saying that I am the son of the Western Garrison Liege Lord? I can even say you are my son!"
Fatty laughed involuntarily and shook his head. "Jiang Yi. You should have already guessed it, right? Or else, why would you be so angry? Jiang Yunhai was the Western Garrison's Chief Supervisor of the Inner Court. There was once that he did something wrong and was almost executed. It was precisely because of a lady within the Western Garrison—that sought for forgiveness on his behalf—that Jiang Yunhai was let off, but his leg was still crippled. That was a huge commotion in the Western Garrison that many people knew off. It was logical for him to accept this lady to be his madam.
"No one knew where this lady came from. She was brought into the Western Garrison by Jiang Bieli and had stayed there for two years. The Western Garrison didn't give her any status, and when Jiang Bieli took the position of being the Liege Lord, she suddenly left. Once she left, Jiang Yunhai declared his illness and asked to return back to the Skyplume City.
"According to the informant that we sent to the Western Garrison… when that lady left, she was pregnant with a baby! Jiang Yunhai headed back to the Skyplume City to stay in the Jiang Clan until he suddenly brought back two babies three years later. Those babies were you and your servant girl! Since Jiang Yunhai addresses you as Young Lord, then it is obvious what your status is…"
Jiang Yi listened to Qian w.a.n.guan. He didn't say a single word, but his face was turning severe. His eyes were glistening with light, unknown of what he was thinking about.
Qian w.a.n.guan stood up and stayed silent for a moment. He lamented, "Now that I mentioned it, that lady is sure weird. No one knew her name or her clan. The only information about her was her family name, Yi. Not only did she had the looks of a G.o.ddess, but she even had extraordinary strength which was even much more formidable than Jiang Bieli at first! It was rumored that this lady was loved by Jiang Bieli, but it was unknown why he didn't marry her. Instead, he married a lady from the Zhangsun Clan. Afterward, this lady mysteriously left the Western Garrison…"
When Jiang Yi heard this, his mind burst up like thunder. When he closed his eyes, he recalled everything that Jiang Yunhai once said:
"It was because your mother was my mistress, and without her, I would already be dead. Neither would I be who I am today so I pledged my life to serve her!"
"As for your father, according to Madam, you… don't have a father!"
"With Madam and 'that person' being so powerful, how average could Young Lord be?"
"Your father was a powerful man, but he also abandoned Madam back in the day. Madam would not have died if it weren't for him so… I will not go to him unless there is no other choice. I don't even want to see his face, lest a look tempts me into trying to kill him with everything I have!"
Jiang Yunhai didn't reveal much information, but when every statement was referenced to the information from Qian w.a.n.guan, it matched flawlessly.
The conjecture seemed clear now: Jiang Bieli met his mother, and the two of them went to the Western Garrison while they were in love. His mother once saved Jiang Yunhai's life, which was why Jiang Yunhai pledged his loyalty! It was unknown why Jiang Bieli didn't marry his mother, and his mother—who was pregnant—left with hatred. Two years after giving birth to him, her life was almost at its end; and she then left him and Jiang Xiaonu to Jiang Yunhai. She even sealed his dantian and Jiang Yunhai's memories, seemingly not wanting Jiang Yi to know of his own past and asking him to spend peaceful days in the Skyplume City.
If Fatty didn't deceive him and if the information from Qian Clan was correct, there was a high possibility that he might be the illegitimate son of the Western Garrison Liege Lord. He would be this 'Your Highness!'
After deducing his own status, Jiang Yi wasn't a bit pleased, but his mind was filled with wrath instead. For this sudden appearance of his father, he didn't have any feeling of approval. Just like his mother said, he had no father! Not before, not now… not in the future.
His eyes suddenly reddened as he glared at Qian w.a.n.guan with vicious eyes, "Fatty, listen up well. I, Jiang Yi, am an orphan; and I do not have any parents. If you dare spread this information, I will risk my life to silence you forever!"
Qian w.a.n.guan was rather confused. He asked someone to investigate Jiang Yi and quickly deduced Jiang Yi's status with all the information. He even asked someone to arrange the same lodgings with Jiang Yi—all to build up a good relations.h.i.+p with Jiang Yi. What if Jiang Yi was to return to the Jiang Clan and take over the position of the Western Garrison Liege Lord? It would then become a great advantage for the Qian Clan, but who would have expected Jiang Yi to be against it?
Seeing Jiang Yi in this state, he dared not convince him anymore. He nodded in agreement. "Alright. I promise not to tell anyone about this. But your information is too obvious: anyone can just go to Skyplume City and investigate. Unless you are going to murder everyone in Skyplume City who knows about your status. What if Jiang Qilin were to investigate your status and report it to the Western Garrison Liege Lord…"
Jiang Yi frowned and grew rather frenetic. Jiang Yunhai once served within the Western Garrison and even addressed him as Young Lord in public. If anyone knew of some inside information, they would naturally understand.
Qian w.a.n.guan saw Jiang Yi in his current state and began to patiently persuade him: "Jiang Yi. The Western Garrison Liege Lord is still your blood father, and the two of you would have to acknowledge each other sooner or later! I am sure—the Liege Lord didn't know that your mother was pregnant when she left, or else he would have already come looking for you. If you were to become his direct descendant, it would be greatly beneficial to your future progress. And everything that you would like to do would become much easier…"
Jiang Yi's expression turned sinister as he vigorously turned to glare at Qian w.a.n.guan and roared, "I will tell you one more time. I do not have a father, and even if Jiang Bieli appears in front of me, I will cleave at him! Don't you think I will slaughter you if you dare speak like this again?!"
Jiang Yunhai once told Jiang Yi that he could go find and acknowledge his father, but the two of them would never see each other ever again. Jiang Yunhai was a much more important person to Jiang Yi than his father. What's more, his father abandoned his mother back then, which was why his mother died with a grievance. Hence, he didn't have any good impression of this father and was rather hateful of him. The kind of hatred that was etched into the bones!
He is crazy…
Qian w.a.n.guan's chubby face shook when he heard that Jiang Yi wanted to kill Jiang Bieli. Only Jiang Yi would have this kind of courage, right? Jiang Bieli was one of the strongest combatants throughout the continent and the most formidable within the Divine Martial Kingdom.
Jiang Yi suddenly pointed towards the door and yelled at Qian w.a.n.guan. The fatty twitched his nose and walked out. Jiang Yi threw himself onto the bed and painfully closed his eyes. His mind was in a mushy mess. His imagination ran wild for a moment, but he quickly sat up to rub his face. He forcefully calmed himself and a.n.a.lyzed the situation.
Soon enough, he decided something. No matter if Jiang Bieli was his father or not, he would not acknowledge him. He had been an orphan for so many years and was used to it. The next thing was that he needed to find a way to see Jiang Yunhai—to get all the facts and conceal his status.
His status had to remain hidden. If it was exposed or revealed to those that schemed against him, he and Jiang Yunhai would be in grave danger. It was because the Western Garrison Liege Lord had a son named Jiang Yiliu.
If a direct and only heir was to find out that he had a brother from a different mother, and it was his father's illegitimate son; wouldn't he find all ways to eliminate him? To ensure his succession?
The answer was clear!
