Chapter 100

“I found out when I left the General’s Household through my mother’s diary.”

“As for the jade pendant, my biological mother hung it on my neck before she left me. If you hadn’t known about this jade pendant, I still never would’ve known what it represented.”

A Lan Family daughter!

That was the first thing Dibei Chen’s mind came to. But after thinking about it, he knew that it was impossible.

He was very clear what kind of a monster the Lan Family was. How could the powerful Lan Family let a child be dropped outside?

“How did the General’s Household wife take you?” Dibei Chen asked again.

Baili Hongzhuang explained, clearly telling him everything she knew from her mother’s diary. She also wanted to know more about her own life.

“Your whole body was covered in blood?”

Dibei Chen’s handsome face frowned. The Lan Family has always been strong. Even in the entire Shengxue Continent, there were very few powers that could contend with them. It was impossible for a daughter of the Lan Family to be reduced to such a state.

But if not so, how could a Lan Family jade token be on Baili Hongzhuang’s body?

Suddenly, Dibei Chen’s eyes flashed, suddenly recalling something!

“Wife, was it true that you couldn’t cultivate?”

Baili Hongzhuang nodded slightly, “Yes.”

“So… … what was the reason why you couldn’t cultivate?”

While everyone knew that Baili Hongzhuang had a trash physique and couldn’t cultivate, nobody knew if she was trash because of her body’s constitution, if the meridians were damaged, or some other problem or not.

Baili Hongzhuang inspected Dibei Chen, sensing he knew something. Otherwise, he wouldn’t suddenly be asking her this.

“My dantian was broken.” Baili Hongzhuang replied truthfully.

When she had first found out, she had thought it was very strange. In this world, people usually became trash because there was a problem with their body’s constitution or the meridians were blocked. A dantian could only be broken if the body was seriously injured.

At that time, she was very young. It should’ve been almost impossible for someone to deal such a ruthless hand to her.

Finally hearing Baili Hongzhuang’s reply, Dibei Chen’s face suddenly changed, his normally calm face revealing shock.

“What does my broken dantian have to do with my history?”

The light in Dibei Chen’s eyes sunk, slowly saying, “I remember many years ago, the Lan Family created a big stir. The most favored son of the Lan Family head had betrayed the family, killing many of the family’s members before leaving with his wife and daughter.”

Baili Hongzhuang was startled. If such a thing really did happen in the Lan Family, then could it be that….

“It impacted the Lan Family greatly. Lan Yunxiao was the most promising candidate to become family head, so nobody could understand why he would suddenly turn his back on the Lan Family. This was a secret the Lan Family had deliberately kept hidden from the world so many people only knew of the results, and not what actually had happened.”

“You mean I could be that Lan Yunxiao’s daughter?” Baili Hongzhuang asked aloud.

Dibei Chen pondered. “It’s not impossible. Your jade pendant is a Lan Family token, something that only direct descendants of the Lan Family possess. It’s impossible for it to fall into the hands of outsiders.”

“My parents seemed like they were fleeing from something and was forced to leave me with the General’s Household.” Baili Hongzhuang frowned, “Was it the Lan Family that killed my parents?”
