He officially became the Mu’s family head as of today.
His uncle was dumbfounded for words, too.
His lips curled into a smirk. “As you can see, I’m the family head and the person with the highest authority among the Mus now, so I don’t wish to hear further protest regarding who I marry and acknowledge!”
It was strangely silent in the room. No one dared to speak anymore.
Even though his aunt was seething with rage, she did not know what to say.
His second uncle asked in a low voice, “Let me ask you again: Are you marrying that woman for real? Must you marry her?”
“Second uncle, my stand is clear, too! It’s useless however you ask!”
He lifted his chin in an insufferably arrogant manner.
“Second brother, pay attention to your words! Is this the attitude you should have when speaking to second uncle?! Marriage isn’t a game?! He’s only thinking for you. Never mind if you don’t appreciate it, what’s with the aggressive attitude?” Mu Yancheng spoke up from the side.
Mu Yazhe’s cold gaze swept over to him in sharp warning. “Regardless of the decisions I make, you’re in no position to criticize them. Who are you to be talking to me?”
The former shut up immediately in sullen anger and embarrassment.
Being from the collateral branch, it was indeed not in his position to meddle in the matter.
Despite being only a year younger than the man, there was a great disparity in status between them!
Although he harbored jealousy in his heart, he was filled with indignation even more!
Equally in his prime, he felt that he was comparable to Mu Yazhe! All he lacked was the chance and status. In terms of ability, he deemed himself extraordinary. Hence, he felt aggrieved each time the other bested him!
What makes him think that he can display such arrogance and aggressiveness?!
Just because he’s now our family head, does he think impressively of himself?!
Because of that, he can overestimate his capabilities and contest the authority of the family rules?!
What’s with his arrogance?!
The duration he can last as the family head remains an uncertainty!
Even though he was cursing inwardly in indignation, a forced smile remained on his face.
“Do you have any more objections to this marriage?” asked Mu Yazhe.
Anger was displayed all over his aunt’s face as she said, “Ha ha… Now that you’re the family head, of course your words are final! Aunt only thinks that your second uncle has made an error in judgement by supporting you back then! Well, now that you’re the family head, you just have to drag the whole family to shame with you!”
His cold gaze shifted and landed on her, stabbing her with its hidden sharpness!
She flew into a rage instantly. “What are you staring at me for?! Do you think you can act all smug and lawless now that you’re the family head? No matter what, I’m still your aunt. Don’t you be too arrogant! Hmph!”
“I hope that this is the last time I’m hearing such words from you. Don’t let me hear them again!”
“Are you threatening me now?!” She stood up in agitation.
“Shumin, be quiet! Just leave him be; sooner or later, he’s bound to regret it!” Mu Linfeng snorted from the side.
Mu Yazhe coldly scanned the seated people who were, in some sense, his real relatives.
