It was at the dead of night when several black sedans sped past the gates of Xiangti Walk and stopped at the garden house entrance.
Seated in the car with his cane in hand, Mu Sheng looked outside the window anxiously.
The birth of Little Yichen had brought him great joy seven years ago.
As the Mu family's head, it was gratifying to see the continuation of their bloodline.
However, with the new knowledge that the previous Mu family surrogate had hidden one of the twins, he could not contain his anger.
What intentions did that woman have?
Was she really dreaming that, by making use of her son, she could be the young mistress, just like what his granddaughter had said?
Who did she think she was?!
He could not calm his fury at this thought. Only when he recalled that the child would be returning to the Mu family did he settle down a bit.
Sending an eye signal to the two black-clothed bodyguards beside him, he immediately ordered, "Be careful not to hurt the child!"
A few men in black alighted from the car and stormed up the entrance to the house. A cold and indifferent voice rang out in the darkness right then. "Who is it?!"
Before they could react, they found several heavily armed mercenaries guarding the door and keeping them away from the house.
His bodyguards were startled. One of them promptly challenged, "Who are you?"
The mercenaries only coldly eyed them in response.
They stood still in one place.
Exchanging glances in tacit understanding, the bodyguards decided to just break into the house.
A dark figure pulled out a sharp dagger from his waist and darted toward the group the moment they moved. A few soft moans of pain were heard before the bodyguards successively dropped to the ground with their limbs' tendons severed. Everything happened in only a span of a few seconds.
As the dark figure slowly stood up and kept the dagger in its scabbard, his cold face was exposed under the moonlight.
There was a murderous glint in his scarlet eyes.
Even Old Mu, who was sitting in the car, felt a biting chill in his heart!
The person was overwhelmingly aggressive and his methods were fast, accurate, and cruel. In only five seconds tops, he actually managed to sever the tendons in his bodyguards' limbs.
His combat prowess was strong enough to strike fear in people's hearts!
Who were these people?
He had never seen such horrifying combat prowess before.
Even in the military zone, only the special task force could be so aggressive and so terrifying in combat.
What was going on?!
"Grandpa, what do we do now?" asked Mu Wanrou in trepidation.
It turned out that things were exactly what her fourth uncle had said; Yun Shishi's house was heavily guarded by a bunch of unknown armed individuals, and none was allowed entry to the house.
Her heart turned cold at once.
The old man was baffled, though.
What were these aggressive people's identities?
She suddenly wondered, "Are these people sent by Mu Yazhe to protect the mother-son pair?"
"Hmph! That lad does all sorts of stupid things! He's getting out of hand. To think he has lost his mind over an indecent woman!"
Enraged, he tapped his cane against the floor several times.
"Grandpa, what do we do now? I think those people are highly skilled and formidable."
He snorted. "No hurry!"
Ordering the chauffeur to drive them away temporarily, he then made a call to the capital's military zone.
