Chapter 1: To catch an adulteress in bed
Her whole body was feeling unwell as if she was being engulfed in flames.
Cheng Liyue was in a dazed state. With a blurry vision, she caught hold of a man’s arm.
She wanted to cry for help. A strong masculine scent reached her. Her slightly opened lips were blocked off by a strong force.
She instinctively wanted to resist, but the man did not give her any chance to do so. He dove straight in, teasing her mouth open and consumed her whole.
Undoubtedly, towards this strange man’s kiss, she should have resisted and felt repulsed by it.
But, why was her body feeling stimulated?
In the next second, she experienced a wrenching pain in her lower body.
A strong pain seized her.
The golden sunlight shone through the royal style curtain illuminating the furnishings in the luxurious room.
Clothes were strewn all over the white carpet messily. The room carried a faint scent of last night’s affair.
On the bed, the slender figure of a lady was partially visible under the gold embroidered quilt.
Small oval face, exquisite and beautiful facial features, skin pale as snow, black hair cascading down her shoulders. Vaguely visible were the red marks on her body, the crude remnants of last night’s affair.
Like cherry blossoms blooming all over her body.
In her heavy state of sleep, she heard the door being pushed open. Although she did not want to open her eyes, she consciously roused herself.
Her eyes fluttered open.
Just outside the golden edge doorway, she caught sight of her grim-faced husband, Lu Junxuan, and the shocked and dismayed expressions of her mother-in-law and sister-in-law by his side.
“Junxuan… ” Cheng Liyue wiped her eyes. Her sight fell on the sheets, quilt, floor, and the furnishings of the room. Her mind turned blank for a moment.
This was not her room. Where was this?
“Jun Xuan… Where am I?” She asked the grim-faced man standing at the door.
Lu Junxuan sneered. His handsome face was malicious and insidious. “You still have the audacity to ask me where this is? Tell me, who was the adulterer whom you spent the night with?”
With brows furrowed, Cheng Liyue tried to recall the events that had happened last night, but she couldn’t remember a thing. Her last memory was of herself drinking some wine with Junyao at a cafe.
At this time, she saw her sister-in-law, Lu Qingya, and her mother-in-law, Chen Xia, stepped inside the room from behind Lu Junxuan. Turning to her daughter, her mother-in-law said, “Qingya, take a good picture, make sure to capture the appearance of your sister-in-law having gone to bed with another man.”
Gone to bed with another man? Cheng Liyue’s brain exploded.
“I… I didn’t… ” Cheng Liyue shook her head and tried to explain.
At this time, her mother-in-law, Chen Xia, walked up to the bed and tugged her long hair up. She raised her neck in pain, revealing her chest and throat which were covered in hickeys. It was a ghastly sight.
“Take, take a clear picture.” Chen Xia said to her daughter.
Lu Qingya, while taking photos of her neck, laughed derisively at her. “Sister-in-law, it looks like you had a great time last night!”
Cheng Liyue lowered her head painfully looking at the traces on her chest which she had not realized had emerged on her body. Fleeting images of last night’s shameful affair came into mind. She had thought it was a dream….
Alarmed, she turned to look at Lu Junxuan’s handsome face, only to see his face horrifyingly cold, staring at her as if he was staring at a piece of trash, “Very good, Cheng Liyue. Only half a year of marriage, you dare to run off track. I don’t care who you were with last night… Get ready for a divorce!”
After saying this, he gave her another disgusted glance, pushed the door open and left.
Cheng Liyue’s face turned ghostly pale.
“No, Junxuan, listen to me… It’s not like that… ” Cheng Liyue was bare-naked. She wrapped the quilt around herself and tried to catch up to him.
Before she could do so, she was ruthlessly pushed back onto the bed by Chen Xia. Stunned, she looked at mother-in-law. “Mother…”
“You are not entitled to call me mother. You shameless vixen. How dare you carry on with another man behind my son’s back. You’re a total disgrace to our family! Let me tell you, my Lu family will absolutely not tolerate your wanton behavior!”
