Fu Youqin looked at him in disbelief. She had never realized before that Wen Boli was so stupid.
She took the divorce letter over and smiled as she tore it into pieces.
“You are a son-in-law who married into the Fu house. Where do you get the right to divorce me?” Fu Youqin drank some tea. “I’m the one who should be divorcing you.”
Wen Boli’s face turned red from her ridicule. He looked at the soldiers who were silent since they came inside. He asked in a whisper if they could send more soldiers here.
The soldiers had just lost face earlier, so they naturally wanted to regain their prestige back. When they heard Wen Boli’s suggestion, one went out to gather more people.
Fu Youqin noticed their movements and looked meaningfully at Wen Ji. Wen Ji understood and followed him out.
The atmosphere in the main hall was tense. Fu Youqin faced Wen Boli without a trace of weakness. After being husband and wife for so many years, she could see with one glance what Wen Boli was planning.
Wen Boli thought that after landing on Nanming County magistrate’s large boat, he would force her to compromise. But who didn’t know that water could keep a boat afloat but also overturn it? The support of a large boat was but a momentary thing.
When Wen Tian told her the news about imperial envoys secretly investigating in Sifang Town, she had already sent someone to inquire. She even clearly knew which inn the imperial envoys were staying in.
If this was the past, Wen Boli might really have created a lot of trouble. But now it was the sensitive period of time when the government sent imperial envoys to investigate corrupt officials. The higher Wen Boli reached, the greater the chances that he would be noticed.
Wen Boli still thought that he had gained a very big cheap advantage. He didn’t know that he already had one leg stuck in the mud.
The two sides were temporarily at a standstill. Both sides were waiting for the other’s next move.
