Mr. Yuan's Dilemma: Can't Help Falling In Love With You Chapter 164
A quiet voice suddenly called out. Mu Chenyan jumped and stood up in front of the gravestone. She glanced in all four directions while her legs uncontrollably trembled.
She managed to discern her brother's voice and the way he habitually called her "Yan'er".
"Brother, where are you?"
Mu Chenyan had yet to discover her brother's whereabouts although she had scanned her surroundings. She frantically shouted, "Brother, come out. I'm in front of our father's gravestone."
Her hoarse voice quivered. Mu Chenyan choked and descended into panic and helplessness as she was unable to see Mu Chenwu.
Suddenly, a black silhouette flashed and emerged behind a large gravestone that was not far away. The imposing and dark figure quietly yelled at Mu Chenyan and said, "I'm here, Yan'er!"
Mu Chenyan recognized that the man was really Mu Chenwu who had disappeared for more than a year.
Mu Chenyan was so emotional that she rushed over and jumped into her brother's arms. She hugged Mu Chenwu's waist and loudly wailed, "Brother... It's been so long... Where did you go?"
Mu Chenwu was dressed in a black woolen windbreaker and wore a peaked cap. His chin that was covered in fine stubble was faintly trembling while his profound features were still as handsome as before except that they seemed somewhat older.
He tightly embraced his sister in his arms and choked while he softly murmured, "Yan'er! The fact that I'm still alive to see you... is truly great..."
There was nothing else but tears when the siblings met.
Their family was already broken up.
Mu Chenyan could barely calm her emotions after crying for a while. However, she embraced her brother without loosening her grip as if she was afraid that he would completely disappear again when she let go.
Mu Chenwu hugged Mu Chenyan as well and pressed his chin against his sister's hair. He gently stroked her hair numerous times while his extremely hoarse voice said, "Yan'er, how have you been? I'm sorry. I never went to see you for such a long time but left you there alone instead..."
Mu Chenyan cried harder upon hearing this.
She nudged herself against her brother's chest as if she could not believe that this was real. People outside were already spreading rumors that Mu Chenwu was dead but Mu Chenyan had always needed to see either a living body or a corpse to believe whether someone was alive or dead. When she could finally see her brother today, she truly had nothing else but tears.
"Brother, don't say that! Yan'er has never blamed you because it's good enough that you're alive! Now that you've returned... Let's go to the hospital and get our mother... Let's go..."
As she spoke, she tugged at Mu Chenwu's sleeve because she was really anxious to leave.
Since her brother was back, Mu Chenyan realized that she would have a blood relative from now on. Thus, she naturally did not have to stay with the Yuan Family any longer.
Mu Chenwu was shocked. He paused in his tracks and dragged Mu Chenyan over before he quietly consoled his sister's emotions.
"Don't be hasty, Yan'er! It's not safe for us to talk here. Are you sure that nobody from the Yuan Family followed you here just now?"
Mu Chenyan's entire body trembled when she heard that. She fearfully glanced all around before she shook her head and said, "I brought Yuan Tian along and she's waiting for me at the entrance. I don't think anyone else followed us."
As Mu Chenwu was not reassured, he vigilantly surveyed and circled the area again before he dragged Chenyan and hid behind the large gravestone from just now.
This row of gravestones was probably built by several rich and influential families because they were taller than a few other rows.
Moreover, it was next to the road where there were several large trees as shade, making it much more concealed. Thus, Mu Chenwu had hidden there earlier to observe Mu Chenyan for a long time before he came out after he was certain that there was nothing suspicious.
Mu Chenyan anxiously looked at her brother. When she saw his cautious manner, she inwardly understood that he had probably remained hidden earlier because people had definitely mistreated him before this.
"Yan'er, I can't take you away yet and we can't get our mother either. You've seen that the hospital is being secretly monitored so it's impossible for us to get our mother from under Yuan Xuan's grasp!"
Mu Chenwu was stating the truth.
Previously, when he secretly sneaked into the hospital at night, he even hurt a young nurse who was on duty.
Mu Chenyan knew Yuan Xuan's intentions. As long as he had Yan Mei, she would not run away. However, no matter how overbearing he was, Yuan Xuan would not forcefully imprison her anymore now that she had her brother, right?
"Brother, why are you hiding? Why should we be afraid of Yuan Xuan?" Mu Chenyan was puzzled.
Even if Yuan Xuan had retaliated against the Mu Family two years ago because of a misunderstanding with her, she had nothing to do with Shu Qinger's death now. Why would they still need to be scared?
"Yan'er, listen to me. You must stay with the Yuan Family because we need to seek revenge for our parents!"
"Revenge?" Mu Chenyan was slightly confused.
