She asked warily, "What do you want to do?"
Mu Lianjue suddenly stood up and approached her. Grabbing her face, he scrutinized her for a long while.
As her hands were both tied up, she was unable to put up any resistance at all and could only glare coldly at him to express her repulsion to him.
He laughed at the sight of her stubborn and haughty look. "Young people are really tough nuts!"
"You're from the Mu family, aren't you?" she suddenly asked.
His face froze at once and his lips stiffened. He then warned, "Young lady, sometimes, it may not be a good thing to know too much!"
Her face cooled as her black, bright eyes glinted with coldness. "Ha ha! What are you saying? What good things can I expect now that I'm in your hands?!"
"It's for your good knowing when to be submissive at times!"
"Ha ha! Submissive? That depends on the person! There's no need for me to care about attitude with a vulgar and despicable old man like you!"
The man could not help feeling surprise at her haughtiness as he stared at her lividly. If his eyes were lethal, her face would surely be stared through!
Refusing to show her weak side, she spat at him.
This was probably her only 'weapon' now!
She muttered a curse under her breath. "Scram and get your dirty hand off me!"
The man closed his eyes and a subordinate promptly came forward with a handkerchief to wipe the saliva off his face.
Following this, this subordinate gave her a vicious glare before storming up to her. It was apparent that he intended to teach this unruly woman a lesson!
His boss stopped him, though. "Hold it!"
The lackey was stunned for a moment before replying in indignation, "Fourth master… this woman ought to be taught a lesson for being rude to you!"
"Stop torturing her! Just because she's a tough nut, it doesn't mean that her life isn't fragile! Keep her alive; I have a use for her!"
The former then turned around and expressionlessly ordered, "Send the photos to Disheng. Remember to do a clean job!"
He was about to leave when the woman called him from the back.
His footsteps paused and he turned around.
She narrowed her eyes. "Surely, you're not dreaming of using me to extort for position and power?"
"Oh? I didn't think that a young lady like you would be so quick on the uptake." His lips lifted into a dark and bloodthirsty smile.
"Forgive me for saying this, then!" She laughed coldly with a raised brow. "It's evening now; don't daydream."
"Ha ha!" He smiled slightly with sullenness in his eyes.
"Putting aside the matter of whether Mu Yazhe will give up the Mu inheritance rights for my sake or not, from what I see, without him, the huge Mu Group will only become a wasteland, especially with it in your hands!"
His brows furrowed. There was no longer a need to conceal the murderous intent in his eyes.
However, his face returned to a look of calmness very quickly. As if he had heard a funny joke, he coldly sneered. "Whether Mu Group will become a wasteland in my hands or not, we'll have to wait and see if you can live until then!"
His meaning was clear; he intended to kill her!
