Mu Linfeng studied the young man's face for a while. His expressionless profile actually aggravated his uncle!
"Someone told me that you danced with Princess Charlotte at last night's banquet. Well done!"
"Eh." His nephew remained nonchalant.
Mu Linfeng looked down and put away the newspaper. Picking up a piece of wet tissue to wipe his hand, he continued his speech in a low tone. "This morning, the Duke of Hannsof from Morokko's royal family hinted to me that you left a good impression on Princess Charlotte! She's the beloved daughter of Grand Princess Caitlin and the next in line to the throne. She's also pretty and comes with a 1.2-billion inheritance. Why don't you set some time aside later to meet her and see if you can get to know her better?"
Mu Yazhe looked up abruptly. His eyes paused for a second before they flashed dangerously.
Suddenly, he realized why his second uncle had specially called him abroad!
He was, again, trying to make use of him!
The young man was very unhappy with his uncle for pairing him and the royal princess without prior consultation!
However, as his uncle was his senior, he could not reprimand him publicly, so he only retorted emotionlessly, "There's no need for a date! I'll return home after tonight. I still have pending work in the office!"
Although his uncle was not surprised, he was still greatly displeased by his blatant refusal!
"You have pending work in the office?!"
Snorting coolly to indicate his dissatisfaction with his reply, the middle-aged man drawled, "I think that your heart is with that woman!"
Though his uncle did not explicitly state who that woman was, the man knew very well who he was referring!
He squinted his eyes with a lethal glint. Despite the person sitting before him being his second uncle, who was also a powerful member of the Mu household, that did not stop him from expressing his marginal displeasure. "Did you have her investigated?!"
"I had everyone around you investigated." His uncle confessed to him openly.
His expression changed and his eyes froze over before it vanished in an instant.
In his heart, though, he was deeply uncomfortable with his uncle's action!
The older man suddenly looked up; his tone expressed his displeasure as he tapped his fingertip on the tabletop. "Yazhe, as you know, I always think well of you! In our family, you are the crème de la crème; that's why I am here doing my best to help you get the ultimate rights to the Mu empire! After all, this uncle of yours believes that only you have the talent and the capability to develop a more magnificent blueprint for Mu Group! You know very well of my ambitions, and I know how ambitious you are, too, but I must warn you now: Think carefully before you act! Uncle here isn't forbidding you to have women. You are still young and vigorous—not to mention at an amorous stage—so you ought to have a few women around you! You can look for any woman except for Yun Shishi! That woman is a no-go!"
He specifically emphasized the last word in his long speech. His adamant stand on this matter was indisputable!
Indubitably, this second uncle of his was now using his seniority to issue him an order.
