Chapter 1259: It cannot be this woman!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
His second uncle was not worried by his expression and continued icily. “I understand that you’re not young anymore, and it’s about time for you to settle down, but you must be clear about the kind of status you have. You can have a lover, but she can’t be some shady woman! Next time, I’ll help you look for some women. Regardless of how they look, as long as you want them, who won’t come to you with your status? Why must you be so stubborn? Does it only have to be her?!”
He smirked, his dashing eyebrows raised, as his eyes glinted darkly. “I only want her and no one else; what can you do about that?”
“That won’t do!” His aunt stood up suddenly and agitatedly. “No matter what you say, it can’t be her!”
“Why not?” he retorted, wanting to hear what kind of excuse his aunt could come up with in front of these many people.
She scoffed and looked around. Before opening her mouth, she put on an air of seniority and superiority as she held her head high.
Sitting around were the important figures of the main family: Mu Shumin, Mu Linfeng and his wife, Li Lijun, and Mu Yancheng and his wife, Rong Lanlin.
Apart from them, the remaining people were from the family’s collateral branches and their fanatics. At most, they were here to support the ostentation. If they were asked to open their mouths, they would not dare to do so.
They would never dare to act rash in front of the young man!
However, his aunt and second uncle were trickier characters!
Their seniority was higher than his by a length.
At first, Mu Sheng hoped that Mu Wanrou would be married into the family, but these two were on the same page at going against such an arrangement. The reason she had never managed to go through with the marriage was these two’ continuous opposition.
Speaking about it now, the power these two figures wielded was huge, and they were currently the biggest hurdles in front of him.
He must admit that his second uncle did groom and did help him. He had even saved him from the abyss of suffering. Originally, as the son of the first wife, he was among the viable candidates to be the successor.
Therefore, when his parents had passed away and he was all alone, he had been extremely careful in the Mu family. It was as if he were constantly walking on ice. It was Mu Linfeng who had taken him away and given him superior environment for growth.
He was very grateful to him about this!
He was a sentimental person and was also someone who knew how to be thankful. It was because of this that, despite having many chances to transfer the Mu Group’s assets under his name in the past, he did not do so.
However, as time went by, he began to realize that his second uncle’s care and assistance were not that pure, after all. It seemed that this middle-aged man had a hidden motive, intending to make use of him!
He was displeased about this. He may not have shown it, but in recent years, he had gradually become rebellious to his second uncle’s commands. He no longer listened to him.
The latter was a little afraid due to that. Secretly, he had been trying to break up the structure of the board of directors, but these small actions could never be hidden from Mu Yazhe’s eyes!
As for his aunt, she had just been completely using him!
In reality, she could not wait for him to step down from his position!
If the one receiving his shares was her, she would not have anything to say.
However, as he was planning to transfer them to that old Mu Lianjue, how could she sit still and do nothing?
