As expected, the first thing he saw after he went in was Shen Yue walking to the side of Shen Wenna’s bed angrily. The wrath inside him was spiraling out of control.
“What did I tell you back then? Huh? You didn’t believe me! The Xi family is abnormal. They are a prideful political family. I told you to not marry him, yet you insisted on going to Xi Mushan! Huh?” Shen Yue was scolding Shen Wenna. The anger inside him burst out all at once, highlighting his hatred towards Xi Mushan and the Xi family!
“I disagreed to the both of you being together, and you dare to threaten to renounce your relationship with me. Look what’s happened now! What’s happening? Mu Tangchuan is doing just fine, and a thousand times better than Xi Mushan, so just what’s wrong? Is he not as handsome as Xi Mushan? Is he not smart enough? Look at how happy their family is now? Do you see how handsome Ah Chen is?”
Suddenly, he noticed Xi Xiaye’s odd expression and then realized the logical flaw in his sentence. He then continued, “Luckily, I’m quick enough to grab Ah Chen. Xiaye, you’re much wiser than your mother! If you married Han Yifeng, you’d surely have led a hard life! A man like that needs a wife to serve him forever. How could you be happy marrying a man like that?”
Shen Wenna’s face turned pale as Shen Yue scolded her. A faint light flashed in her beautiful eyes, hinting at her aggrieved and sad emotions.
“Alright, Grandpa, stop it! If that happened, there wouldn’t be Mu Yuchen and me anymore. Moreover, don’t you see I’m pretty stupid as Father and Mother’s child? Though Mu Yuchen is quite smart…”
Xi Xiaye tried to help Shen Wenna out when she noticed her evident discomfort.
Shen Yue calmed down drastically. He took a short pause before saying, “Well, there’s that! At least we won’t have such a messy life right now! Look at you now, what are you going to do in the future? Don’t say that you don’t care, you’re my daughter, do you think I don’t know what you’re thinking?”
Shen Wenna took a deep breath and replied, “Don’t worry, Father, I’m fine. I’ll just take it as early retirement.”
“Retirement?! You’re just over 50 years old, right smack in your mid-life, and you’re going to spend the latter half in total darkness! Do you think it’s going to be easy?” Shen Yue glared at Shen Wenna on the bed.
Stunned, she looked downward silently and did not say anything.
Xi Xiaye frowned worriedly. “Grandpa, Mother, don’t be so pessimistic. I’m sure there’s a cure for this!”
“Whether there’s a cure or not, I’m going to get this matter sorted out!” Shen Yue narrowed his eyes as a cold light lit up in them. “I’m trying to be considerate about you and Xiaye, so I never said anything in the past twenty years. I ignored it all these years when the two of you were handling them by yourselves, but with the recent incidents, I can’t just sit here and do nothing!”
“Grandpa,” Mu Yuchen finally said something as he walked over.
“Mmm.” Shen Yue’s anger and coldness toned down when he saw Mu Yuchen.
“I’ll discuss sorting things out later with you. Mother needs more rest. Let’s not worry about this for now.” Mu Yuchen’s neutral tone was effective.
Xi Xiaye quickly nodded and went along. “Grandpa, I just wanted to talk about this too. It’s difficult for us to judge their relationship, and we can’t really blame anyone for this either. It’s all in the past now.”
“Your grandpa is right. I was too headstrong and this is the price I have to pay. I deserve it, alright?” Shen Wenna mocked herself.
“Mother…” Xi Xiaye looked Shen Wenna’s pale and exhausted face. She looked like she was in deep sorrow, and her heart sank.
“This is just too frustrating! I don’t care anymore. I’m just so angry whenever I see Xi Mushan! He keeps going on about protecting you, but he was never there when you needed him the most! I can still keep an eye on you guys as I’m still alive now, but what happens after I’m gone?” Shen Yue’s voice softened.
“Those two women from the Xi family did a lot of work to track you both down. They are aiming for the Yueying shares in your hands. If it weren’t for me, they’d have gone straight to your door! Do you still think you can enjoy such peaceful lives?”
Shen Yue sat down on the sofa as Mu Yuchen poured him a cup of tea.
“Father will take care of the problems over there. Don’t be too quick to get angry now, Grandpa. We’re not just going to let this matter go.”
Mu Yuchen smiled. He knew that Shen Yue had a pretty short temper seeing how hard he hit Xi Mushan just now. Xi Mushan’s left hand was probably out of action for the next few days.
Xi Xiaye’s violent temper probably came from him. She had gone right up to Yue Lingsi’s office and beat her up, putting Yue Lingsi in a terrible state when she was sent to the hospital. Oh, how she wished she could slice Xi Xiaye up into pieces!
“If he’s actually useful and can solve this issue, the two of them wouldn’t need to suffer like this!”
Shen Yue’s impression of Xi Mushan was the worst and he had no hopes for him at all.
“Do you not have any confidence in Father?” Mu Yuchen gave Shen Yue an odd smile as he glanced at him.
“You’re smiling like a sly fox! You look just like a wicked businessman trying to lure me into a trap.” Shen Yue was an old, cunning fox himself. After all, it took one to know one.
“I’m always a businessman, and businessmen are all wicked. I want to make a bet with you. Are you nervous about it?” Mu Yuchen raised his eyebrows as he looked at Shen Yue.
Shen Yue drank some tea and stared at Mu Yuchen sharply. “Bet on what? If you lose, is your first child with Xiaye going to carry the family name ‘Shen’?”
