She bit the lower flap of her red lips and hurriedly nodded. “Y-Yes!”
Only then did his finger slide across the screen to pick up the call. He even turned it into speaker mode.
There was no way he would give her the chance to play tricks—hence, putting it on speaker. He wanted to hear for himself just what they had to say!
Mu Lianjue’s voice rang from the other end. “Where’s the child?”
“He’s already in the car! I’m now on my way…”
Her voice still faintly sounded fearful.
As an astute person, the man had gotten a little wary. “What’s wrong with your voice? It sounds weird.”
Mu Yichen pressed the muzzle a little harder against her temple.
She curbed her urge to scream, deeply aware that, if she screamed, even if the boy did not shoot her to death, he would surely break several of her bones!
Thus, she desperately tried to control the shakiness of her voice and laughed. “It’s nothing. I just caught a little cold, so my hoarse voice.”
“Where’s Mu Sheng? Has he taken the medicine?”
“I’ve already given it to him to drink!”
“Where is he now, then?”
“In… the bedroom, I guess.”
“He he! I heard that Mu Yazhe is on his way home! Everything is going according to my plan. You’d better not mess it up! Once I get my hands on the equity transfer agreement, you won’t be lacking in any benefits!”
Her red lips parted. However, at this moment, the smile on her face was absolutely awful, and even her voice had an ineffable bitterness to it. “He he… He he. I shall give you my thanks here first, then!”
The call soon ended.
The child’s face turned cooler after listening to the entire phone conversation.
“You tampered with great grandpa’s medicine?!” His voice turned frosty; in an instant, it seemed that they were trapped in an ice cellar and were frozen to the core!
She nodded imperceptibly with pursed lips as a silent confession.
She then tried hard emphasizing, “I was coerced into doing so! I didn’t wanna hurt grandpa if I could!”
“Do you think I’ll still believe your words?”
He loaded the pistol and interrogated, “”Tell me: What motives do you have?!”
“It’s not me… not me…”
“Regardless whether you have motives or not, what do you want to do by abducting my mommy?!”
As the muzzle pressed even tighter against her, she truly felt the cold and eerie air coming from it. She yelped in fright, “I’ll talk; I’ll talk!”
She licked her dry lips before spilling all the details of Mu Lianjue’s plans at once!
It turned out that the man wanted to swallow all the Mu Group shares for himself. With just a measly eight percent of shares in his hands, he had no place and speaking rights in the board of directors despite him being a Mu!
Hence, ambition rose in him.
He cared not for the position of the Mu family’s head. What he was really eyeing was that 70-percent Mu Group shares in Mu Yazhe’s hands!
Imagine. Even if he finally won the title of the family head, his nephew still held the most shares in the huge Disheng Financial Group!
In the end, the entire Disheng would still be under his nephew’s control.
Even if he became the family head, he would have no say regarding their family’s business empire!
Hence, he came up with this method.
