If the Mu family could cozy up with this country's royal family, then they would be able to soar to new heights, which they had never experienced before!
Alas, this lad seemed to be disinterested about this matter.
His dissatisfaction for his nephew naturally reached its limit.
"That woman is very dangerous! She has neither the background nor power. Keeping such a small figure with you, she'll only be your burden and stumbling block! There's no benefit for keeping her at your side!"
In fact, his words did make sense.
He was worried that his nephew's abundant concern for that woman would become his Achilles' heel!
Things would not be the same once a person had a weakness.
In the past, Mu Yazhe was vigorous, resolute, stern, and vicious. There were only interests in his eyes and no feelings at all.
This was also why he could become a strong successor candidate for the Mu's family head!
If he had a weakness, it would indubitably be fatal!
His nephew kept his silence.
He opened his mouth again to continue his coaxing. "Second uncle must give you a piece of advice! As the saying goes, 'it's lonely at the top'! Many people are coveting your position! If you make a misstep, you may lose everything! Since that woman's existence will only bring about your downfall, I can't just stand by and watch! Don't do stupid things just because of a temporary obsession for her! Your bones will surely crush into smithereens from falling from such a high place!"
His tone was harsh, but every word rang true. In just a few statements, he openly brought up the seriousness of the matter to him.
The younger man was temporarily rendered speechless.
His uncle was thinking on behalf of him and his benefits; each word was laced with his consideration.
After all, 'it's lonely at the top'.
The higher a person stood, the more he could not have any weakness, lest someone take advantage of it!
Although his uncle sounded very pertinent, he did not dare to agree blindly.
It was just that he must leave some face for this elder, who had power and status, on the surface; hence, with a low voice, he gave his reply a moment later. "Second uncle, I know what I'm doing and I have my plans!"
Mu Linfeng's heart settled when he heard this.
He laughed satisfactorily at once. "He he! I'm sure you won't disappoint me since you've put it this way! I have high expectations for you! Don't you let me down!"
Just as the younger man put down his newspaper, a servant from downstairs rushed toward him with his phone.
"Chairman Mu, you have missed calls!"
She respectfully handed his phone to him.
Upon unlocking the screen, he realized that there were over a dozen missed calls.
Among them, three were from Little Yichen.
A hint of alertness appeared on his face.
His son rarely called him unless there was something important!
He was about to return the call when he recalled the time difference; it was currently midnight back at home.
The little guy was probably asleep already.
Hence, he did not return the call right there and then.
His phone suddenly rang the moment he put it down, though.
He picked up the call with a frown. Qin Zhou's anxious voice came through. "Sir, Shishi is missing!"
He shot right up but realized that his agitation caught his uncle's attention.
He kept his cool as he walked to the window and asked, "What happened?"
