Xi Xiaye stopped Shen Yue who was about to swing his walking stick again, crying out in alarm, “Grandpa!”
As she shouted, she reflexively looked toward Xi Mushan and saw that his left hand was already swollen. His entire hand trembled with pain. The walking stick had hit him right on his finger. It must have hurt very much.
However, Xi Mushan’s expression remained calm. There were only signs of enduring the pain between his brows, and he was looking straight up at Shen Yue whose expression had hardened.
Shen Wenna reacted at this moment too. She quickly sat up straight and widened her eyes. She struggled to hurl both her hands out. “Father!”
“How dare you come here? Do you think I’m dead?”
Shen Yue gripped his walking stick tightly as his old eagle eyes were dense with a sharp coldness. He looked bitterly at Xi Mushan.
“Grandpa, don’t be so worked up. Sit and talk.” Xi Xiaye blocked Shen Yue, afraid that he was going to beat Xi Mushan up again. Knowing Shen Yue’s temper, it was very likely that he would. In fact, Xi Mushan definitely would not evade him too.
“How can I not be worked up? Look at the kind of woman he married?”
“My daughter was willing to desert me to go with you, and look how you’ve treated her! How did the Xi family treat her? I have never liked you. If it weren’t for my child’s dignity, do you think I wouldn’t dare to give you a lesson?”
Shen Yue flew into a rage, pointing at Xi Mushan with his walking stick and cursing, “You’ve got it going great for you! Xi Jiyang’s not a good person either. He’s been doing pretty steadily as a government official all these years, letting the two women ride on his neck. You two have really benefitted from them! Why did you come over? Do you deserve to come?”
“Grandpa, Grandpa, that’s enough! Father’s just here to take care of Mother…”
“Does he deserve to be your father? Do you still call him your father? He’s the husband and father of those two women in the Xi family. Who’s your father? Did you forget about the hurt now that your scar’s healed? You, get out! Immediately! We can’t fit the Buddha in here. Don’t tarnish my daughter’s reputation!” Shen Yue fiercely lashed out at Xi Mushan, tossing the rolled up newspapers in his hand at Xi Mushan.
Xi Mushan reflexively reached out to catch it. What greeted his sight was a headline about him and Shen Wenna!
“Father? Who’s your father? Don’t call me father. Your father is Xi Jiyang, that shameless, old fellow! Go! Don’t come and harm my daughter. Isn’t it all because of you that things are what they are today? If you’re a man, then take responsibility.” Shen Yue’s tone was hostile as though his words were his daggers. He did not leave Xi Mushan any dignity at all!
Xi Mushan was not angry either because it was his fault that they were where they are today. As long as he could fight for Shen Wenna again, he would do anything. This little lesson was nothing. He had long prepared to receive Shen Yue’s lecture.
“Father, I know this is my fault, so I will take responsibility. I will take care of Na Na with my whole heart from now on. Please believe me.”
“Don’t talk nonsense with me here. Do you think I’m the foolish Wenna from years ago? That I’ll just believe whatever you say? Come talk to me when you’ve settled all your matters at home, you bastard!”
Shen Yue was getting angrier as he spoke. Clutching his walking stick, he wanted to walk over, so Xi Xiaye had to stop him herself. Mu Yuchen walked over in huge strides as well and saw that the back of Xi Mushan’s hand was already swollen. His gaze darkened a little.
“Father, Father! Don’t be impulsive!”
Shen Wenna hurled out her hands in panic toward the source of the voices.
Shen Wenna almost fell off the bed. Thankfully, Xi Xiaye was quick enough and Mu Yuchen was a step ahead, so the husband and wife managed to support Shen Wenna from her left and her right.
“Everyone, calm down. The doctor says Mother can’t be provoked.”
Xi Xiaye frowned and said, “Father, go home first. You’ve already stayed here for so long. You must be tired too.”
Then, her clear gaze looked at Mu Yuchen as she said softly, “Send Father out. Grandpa’s a little emotional. Don’t make him worry further.”
Nodding, Mu Yuchen turned to look at Shen Wenna and he could vaguely see that she had mixed emotions in her expression. It was not the same stillness from before.
“Mother, I’ll let Mu Yuchen send Father back first.”
When Shen Wenna heard her, she nodded. “Go then. Sorry for troubling you, Ah Chen.”
“Father, come out for a while. I have some things I wanted to talk to you about too,” said Mu Yuchen, then he walked out of the door. Throwing a look at the furious Shen Yue, Xi Mushan shifted his gaze towards Shen Wenna on the sick bed. “Na Na, I’ll come over again at night.”
Shen Wenna did not answer. She just turned her head to the side. When Xi Mushan saw that, his expression darkened, and he could only turn away and leave sadly.
Xi Xiaye looked calmly at that figure moving further away. She felt a bleakness in her heart, yet she could only quietly avert her gaze.
Following Mu Yuchen outside, Mu Yuchen who walked ahead only stopped when he reached a turning corner. Then, he turned to look at Xi Mushan who also halted behind him.
When he saw Mu Yuchen’s handsome face burdened with an indescribable heaviness, Xi Mushan called out softly, “Ah Chen?”
The current Xi Mushan still had some gloominess in between his brows while the back of his left hand was scarily swollen. He thought about it, then said, “Let’s talk as we walk. Let’s go over and get the doctor to help you fix your hand up first.”
Then, before Xi Mushan could say anything, he had already walked ahead, still holding the leather folder that Ah Mo had passed to him earlier.
When they reached the nurses’ station, he let the nurse apply some medication for Xi Mushan, and then bandage it up before Mu Yuchen personally sent Xi Mushan downstairs.
Upon reaching the car, Mu Yuchen, who had not really said anything all the way, finally spoke up softly, “Grandpa’s temper is like that. Because he’s worried about Mother, you don’t have to take it to heart, Father. Xiaye is quite worried about you.”
Xi Mushan nodded gently. “Mmm, I know. I don’t blame him too. This is what I deserve. I’m really sorry for making you two worry!”
At this moment, Xi Mushan did not have his all-powerful imposing manner and sharpness as he usually did in the political world. All that remained seemed to be a shell of fatigue and humility. It looked like he had been emptied out and his expression seemed a little dazed.
Seeing this, Mu Yuchen felt an unnamed gloominess in his heart. He looked down at his bandaged left hand. When Shen Yue hit him, he did not even make a sound which was enough to conclude that…
“The incident this time has actually impacted Mother a lot. She only pretends to be strong because of Xiaye and you, and Grandpa, Father. Now that the matter has come to this, you shouldn’t blame yourself so much.”
