There was a momentary panic in her voice, but it soon returned to calmness. "I've placed her under house arrest!"
"Mm! Don't touch her first. Once I'm free, I want to question her myself!" commanded the old man in a deep voice.
You'll have no chance to do so by then!
Despite smirking inwardly, she obediently answered, "Yes, grandpa. I'll be right back! What… about the child?"
"That child is unaccustomed to me and gives me the cold shoulder! I had Little Yichen accompany him in hopes of him putting his guard down that way!" Indescribable dejection seeped from his voice as he said this.
She promptly comforted him smilingly, "Grandpa, don't be anxious! The child is still young. Surely, he needs some time to adapt to this unfamiliar environment! Besides, he was separated from you for seven whole years. You're still very unfamiliar to him. Both of you need time to get to know each other! You'll get close after some time!"
"I hope so!" He sighed. "It's getting late; you should hurry home!"
After ending the call, she gave an order to her men. "You guys had better keep a good watch on her; understand?!"
They nodded in unison.
She then left the place to hurry home.
The main door of the warehouse slowly closed.
Several men exchanged glances before turning around to hang Yun Shishi's arms on the column.
One of the men could not help eyeing her.
This chick looks pretty!
Unable to resist himself, he reached out and pinched hard her soft waist as his lips curled into a lascivious smile.
Another man smacked his hand from the side. "Don't you touch her in any way!"
"Oh, my. What do you mean? This lady is so pretty; why can't we touch her?"
"Didn't you hear what Miss Mu said? Keep an eye on her and don't think about anything else!"
Unwilling to give up, he agitatedly insisted, "Death is awaiting her, anyway. Why don't we have our way with her while she's still warm? Look; this woman is so pretty! It'll be such a waste to let her die just like that!"
"You may lose your life for this!" The other retorted in an attempt to stop him.
"Huh?! We'll be careful, then! Big brother, why don't you have a go first? Anyway, as the youngest one here, I'll be the last one to play with her!"
His lust for her was apparent. It was really a pity to let this beauty die!
Why should they not let her pleasure them before she died?
"Forget it! Don't you stir up any sh*t! The boss gave us order to keep this woman alive so just focus on our task! We'll take turns to keep guard tonight. Don't you fool around and ruin things!"
It seemed that the man's words had some credibility. Despite their urges, the other lackeys obediently listened to his order and left it at that.
It was just that they still secretly harbored the thought!
The living room was brightly lit by the time Mu Wanrou returned to the Mu residence.
Before her return, she gave Mu Lianjue a call.
At his command, she had placed Yun Shishi under house arrest in a very remote place.
Everything was going according to his plans so far; naturally, the man was very satisfied. On the phone, he told her that they had two days before Mu Yazhe returned to the country.
They needed to get Yun Tianyou out of the house before tomorrow night, and now that he was trapped in the Mu residence, it was the best time to act.
