She also felt guilty upon hearing that and apologized weakly, "Mu Yazhe… sorry."
His hand stopped moving momentarily when he saw her holding the quilt helplessly. With eyes rimmed red from tears, she looked like a child who knew she had made a mistake.
Anyone who saw her small, piteous face with pouty lips would think that he had bullied her!
He looked down resignedly, suppressing the frustration welling inside him, and sighed. "I don't want your apology."
She was struck speechless and did not know what else to say.
Is he angry with himself?
That's not what I wanted to happen, too, though!
If I had known that that would happen, I… I wouldn't have gone in the first place!
He saw her keeping quiet and decided not to pursue the matter further. However, he was antagonized once more when he thought of how she was badly treated out there!
"Don't worry; you won't go to jail. I'll settle this matter for you, but this shouldn't happen again!"
The woman sensed the anger in his words and tears rolled down her cheeks. She seized his hand as droplets fell on the back of his palm.
"Why didn't you put my name forward when you were bullied?" He could not help but ask.
"I-I did, but Li Dongliang said…" She cleared her throat and imitated the contemptuous tone of the middle-aged man. "Mu Yazhe? Are you referring to that young chap from Disheng Financial Group?"
His face sank darkly and uglily instantly.
She then imitated that old guy's lewd laughter. "Ha ha ha! That's good! Since you claim to be his f*cking woman, then I'll take you as his woman! This comes at the right time, too! I wanna see what kind of experience I can receive from his woman!"
The man's expression became increasingly overcast as he was being aggravated by this silly woman.
After relaying the aggressor's words with added spin to the man before her, she then looked at him forlornly in silent accusation and said tearfully, "Clearly, your name isn't powerful enough!"
He was shocked. "…"
My name isn't powerful enough?
His eyes twitched at this thought.
This was when she noticed the ugly expression on his face. She laughed and said, "All right! I'm just teasing you. Come and smile for me. Don't look so stern, or I'll feel guilty!"
He snorted. As he took out the thermal container, he said, "Don't be an actress anymore. Stay at home and let me take care of you."
She was struck dumb for a moment before shaking her head. "Don't want. I wanna earn money and take care of myself and the twins!"
He asked coolly, "Why; are you afraid that I can't take care of you?"
She pouted and kept quiet.
He added, "Rest assured; the Mu household is so powerful; I could afford it if there were a hundred 'Yun Shishi'."
"If there were a hundred 'Yun Shishi', then there must be a hundred 'Mu Yazhe', too."
Mu Yazhe: "…"
She continued, "I'm very greedy, so I'm not sharing you with ninety-nine others!"
He did not know what to say all of a sudden…
She wrapped her arms around his waist and whined coyly, "I wanna work; I wanna work hard to be outstanding!"
She would work hard to become someone outstanding enough to stand beside him without being overshadowed.
His lips curled into a small smile.
He knew how headstrong she was; hence, he did not take a hard-nosed attitude on this matter.
"Come and drink your porridge."
He put a pillow behind her back and held the spoon to feed her the porridge, mouthful by mouthful.
As if she were out to coordinate with him, her tummy started to growl at this juncture.
