Chapter 1317: Pay back with his life!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
What Mu Yazhe saw on his face utterly disappointed him!
He pressed on, “You know all the details of my father’s car accident and my mother’s death, don’t you?!”
His second uncle remained mum.
His face darkened at his silence. “What am I to you, then?! Am I nothing but a pawn?!”
“C-Calm down for a bit!”
“I’m being very calm now.”
The man shut his eyes, but when he finally opened them again, his chilling expression unnerved those present. “I’m at my calmest state!”
Seeing this, Mu Linfeng’s face turned pale with fear and he tried to give an explanation. “That car accident back then… If I had foreseen it, I would have certainly prevented it from happening, but… I only learned about it later!”
Alas, he only received an expressionless smirk in response from his nephew.
“Fourth brother did commit a foolish mistake, but it’s been over a decade; he’s put it behind him. Shouldn’t you do the same? Now that you have the entire Mu Group in your hands, why bother with the past? So many years have passed; you should be hung up on it and let this matter begone!”
Mu Yazhe could not help bursting into laughter.
How could a decade-long enmity simply be begone?!
He snorted coldly. “Sure!”
His reply left his uncle gaping at him, but then he proceeded to add, “If you want to let it begone, just pay it back in blood!”
With that, he simply turned and took off!
Mu Linfeng was left standing in the same spot in a daze. He understood what his nephew meant!
He wanted to use his fourth uncle’s life to clear this debt!
With an ashen face and a trembling body in fear, Mu Lianjue got up to his feet. “Second brother…”
“Lianjue, look at what you’ve done! Why did you do such a foolish thing back then?!” The older brother glared at the younger one in disappointment and fury.
Color drained from the latter’s face.
Prior to this, he would definitely laugh it off, saying, ‘Hmph! That lad won’t dare to do anything to me!’
However, after what had happened earlier, from his nephew’s eyes, he realized that he did have the intention to kill him!
Now, he no longer dared to say such a thing in any case!
“Don’t you understand why I did it in the first place, second brother? You’ve seen it for yourself; be it capability or skills, how was I inferior to Liancheng? In fact, I was better than him, but what decision did that old fogey make?! I should’ve been the Mu family’s heir, yet in the end, it was given to him! How indignant I was! What about you? Although you didn’t explicitly air your grievances, I’m sure you felt the same back then!”
He fell silent. In the dark corridor, two quinquagenarians stood across each other against the light with their faces hidden in the shadows.
“Second brother, I did it out of indignation! Ha ha! Don’t you know it, too? Liancheng had no ambition at all; why should the Mu Group be in his control? Would the company have survived the crisis if it had been put under him?! It was the company’s turning point at that time; it would’ve been finished if it had been handed over to him!”
