Chapter 1319: No one can replace me!

Mu Linfeng fell silent.
The dead silence lasted so long that Mu Yazhe moved to end the call. This was when he heard his uncle’s heavy and weak voice. “What will make you let him off?”
His voice suddenly dipped as he wiped off the smirk on his face and replied apathetically, “Let him off?”
“… Watch your tone! Is this the attitude you should have toward your elders? I’m your second uncle; don’t you be insufferably arrogant!”
His indifference antagonized his uncle a little, though. “Do me a favor here! At least, on the account of family ties, don’t be so ruthless! He’s your fourth uncle, after all; he shares the same blood as you!”
Unfortunately, he had completely lost his patience with the older man and only felt disgusted with his haughtiness.
He, thus, snorted. “You’ve apparently overestimated your position!”
On the other end, his second uncle was left flabbergasted.
Not in his wildest imagination did he expect the lad to have the guts to speak to him in such a way!
Back then, he would never talk back to him, an elder, like this!
In his daze, he heard his nephew’s ruthless words. “I’ll do no one any favor regarding this matter! My mind is set; if you still insist on protecting him from me, go ahead and give it a try!”
‘Go ahead and give it a try!’
How arrogant his spoken words were!
The older man flew into a rage as his fury surged irrepressibly from within. “Yazhe, you’ve gone overboard with your words! Don’t you forget who you relied on to get your current status and be the heir! Think again; who supported you to become the Mu’s family head? Without me, would you be where you are today? Dream on! If not for me, you would be down and out already. Don’t you forget that! I pushed you up to your current position! Hah! Now that you’ve become successful, are you intending to rebel against me and soar on your own?! You’ve become so arrogant that you’re unwilling to do me a favor now; is that so?!”
“Second uncle, don’t forget; I’ve paid you back what I’ve owed you all these years! Ha ha! You pushed me up?”
The cold smile on Mu Yazhe’s lips vanished and was replaced by the cold glint in his eyes, instead. “I must admire you, though, for making it sound so pompous when you’ve been making use of me! Yes, you did support me, but was it all your hard work? I don’t agree! Even with your support, not anyone could come so far like I did! Back then, no matter who you chose, that person could never make the same achievements!”
His uncle’s expression changed instantly to one of ruthlessness.
Pausing for a bit, he then sneered. “Besides, I’ve long paid you back in full for the help I’ve received from you all these years! Have you forgotten it all?! You couldn’t deal with all those dirty chores with your status! I did all those shady dealings on your behalf! What? Are you now discrediting my contributions with just a few words?”
His second uncle questioned harshly, “Then, what do you want to do now?!”
“This isn’t something you should be asking! If you insist on meddling with it, then don’t blame me for not showing mercy!”
