Chapter 1190: Release them first!

His calm answer surprised his grandpa; his uncle was even more skeptical about it.
He actually agreed so calmly without any hesitation!
Was that woman really so important to him, or was this a mere bluff?
Despite his cunning, Mu Lianjue could not help raising his vigilance. His brow arched in disbelief. It was apparent that he did not believe his nephew would hand over such an important thing to him so easily!
“I’m warning you: Don’t play games with me!”
“Unlike you, I don’t use such crafty tricks.” His nephew sneered mercilessly.
He jested angrily, “Let me warn you again: If you dare to play any tricks, just wait and collect their corpses!”
He was not afraid.
He was staking his life this time around.
There were two lives in his hands at present. That pathetic mother-son pair would instantly turn into two cold corpses at his order!
Mu Yazhe coldly replied, “What tricks can I play with my family in your hands?!”
“It’s good that you know! Make it clear that, with just one order from me, you can forget about seeing them alive!”
“For now, I want to make sure that they’re still alive!”
“Of course, they’re still alive!” He snorted.
His nephew’s eyes gleamed. “It only counts when I see with my two eyes!”
After some deliberation, he summoned his assistant at once and whispered a few words in her ear.
She left the ward and came back with a phone moments later.
A video call had been initiated.
In the screen, Yun Shishi and Mu Yichen appeared to be hugging.
Because it was chilly at night in the basement, the mother-son pair hugged each other even tighter. Both suffered varying degrees of injury.
Mu Yazhe glanced at the screen raptly. He saw a man with a scar on his face walking over and smacking his woman in the face.
She woke up in alarm.
The camera then zoomed in at her face.
Youyou felt a stab in his heart upon seeing how his mother tried to remain calm despite her situation.
It hurt his father to watch this, too.
“Say something to the camera!” ordered the scar-faced man.
The woman, however, bit her lower flap and refused to speak.
She only avoided the camera silently.
Her son’s heart twisted in pain.
Unlike the photos, every frame of this video was alive. Hence, he felt a little stifled when he saw her injured state!
Her injuries seemed to be more severe than his twin’s.
Furthermore, having been trapped without food and water for a whole day and night, her face now looked absolutely awful; her lips, in particular, were as dry as cracked earth.
“Have you gotten a clear look?”
Mu Lianjue’s assistant ended the video call at his grunt.
His nephew’s gaze turned frostier when he lifted his eyes.
“She’s heavily injured!”
“Yes. She’s restless and stubborn, so I got my men to teach her a slight lesson.”
He sneered at his uncle. “When will you release them?!”
“Naturally, they’ll be released once the contract takes effect after you put your signature on the document!”
“Impossible!” his nephew questioned. “Will you really let them go after I sign the document?”
“What? Don’t you believe me?”
He negotiated, “Release them first!”
“Impossible!” His fourth uncle naturally disagreed.
It was unjustifiable to release the hostages prior the transaction!
