Chapter 1183: I do not care about the Mu empire.

He was ambitious when he was younger; his meaning of life was perhaps only revenge and survival.
He gave it his all into gaining power and scheming against others.
No matter what his uncle’s orders were, he had always acted according to them and had never once revolted against him.
Now, however, his heart had warmth, weight, and even people he cared about.
Yun Shishi was the woman he was willing to use his life to love.
He was unafraid of losing his life for her. Why, then, would he fear that he could have nothing?
His lips lifted. “I no longer think so! Second uncle, she is my family and not an indecent woman like what you said!”
“Ha ha! Family?! Is that so-called family more important than I am?”
Mu Linfeng laughed in his anger. “I don’t care who she is, but you must obey my order on this matter. Break up with her and don’t keep in contact with her anymore! That vixen reincarnate has you bewitched! The ancient King Zhou1 also got mesmerized by the vixen spirit in Concubine Dan and didn’t care about the political affairs! King You of Zhou2 even lit the beacons, which tricked his feudal lords, just for a smile from Bao Si! Since ancient times, women have been dangerous beings! I’m not forbidding you to touch women, but I’m warning you not to behave like the ancient fatuous, self-indulgent rulers by forsaking your empire for a woman! You’ve always been shrewd and principled; don’t make me disappointed by your actions today!”
That was over the top!
A hint of sullen anger appeared on Mu Yazhe’s handsome and tense face as he pursed his lips tightly.
If the person sitting before him were not the one who had groomed and highly respected by him, he would have flipped the table and told him to scram in his fury!
“Second uncle, I hope you understand that Yun Shishi isn’t such a woman!”
The older man snorted and insisted, “I can tell she’s that kind of woman—a femme fatale! If she stays at your side, she’ll be a scourge, a ticking time bomb! It’s my blunder! I should’ve gotten rid of her that very day when I found out about her! In fact, she’s really capable to be a scourge! You used to take the big picture into consideration, and never once did you behave inappropriately for the sake of a woman before!”
His face was stern and his eyes were cold.
Youyou’s anger sprang to life when he heard this. If not for his father blocking him, he would have a face-off with this stubborn, old man!
It was too much of him to say that his mommy was a femme fatale and an evil incarnate!
Since when did it become a sin to be beautiful?!
He found it hard to calm his fury but kept his silence, nonetheless.
Daddy has his reasons for stopping him.
His silence was only out of respect for his daddy’s decision!
Mu Yazhe’s face turned even colder. He admitted that he tended to act a little inappropriately when it came to her affairs, but that was because she was special to him!
He suddenly declared, “Ability also means one has to take responsibility! This is the responsibility and principle of a man! If I have to sacrifice my loved ones for the sake of considering the big picture, then I don’t care for such an empire!”
The boy was surprised!
He applauded his father in his heart!
That was it!
A man should protect his woman; this was a man’s responsibility!
