Chapter 1598: Inheriting the father’s style!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
This wily fox had naturally kept a way out for himself while in cahoots with Lin Anguo.
The man told his assistant, “Since someone has taken the initiative to send these to you, you should know what to do next!”
Lu Jinyu sniggered on the other end.
“Trust that sneaky old fox to drop a bombshell on his man. He’s so despicable we must keep an eye on him! The good news is that I have something on his corruption in my possession, too!”
Eh-ing in agreement, Mu Yazhe wrapped the matter up swiftly. “Do a good job with this. I have no concern with you around.”
“Like what you’ve just said, boss, when have I ever messed up? You just wait for my good news.”
With that, the call ended.
The man got up and walked to his son.
His son had a pile of files, which he had just reviewed.
He randomly picked up one and quickly glanced through it. His brow raised in surprise when his eyes fell on the note scribbled at the end of the document.
The boy was concentrating on the last document when he looked up to catch the stunned look on his father’s face. Quizzical, he asked, “Daddy, what’s wrong?”
His father was unable to gather his thoughts for some time.
He initially thought that the child was patronizing him when he said that he would review his files for him. Well, the lad actually did it in all seriousness. What was more; he even highlighted those dubious parts in each file, accompanied with notes. Everything was clearly stated for him to read!
“This organization has some auditing problems!” reported his son pensively.
Snorting, he replied, “There’s issue with the audits, alright! I knew those sneaky old foxes in the Mu household were trying to cut a bigger pie for themselves right under my eyes; unfortunately for them, they could only do it secretively. Hmph! Are they really so naïve to think I’m unaware of what they’ve done?”
Stifling a snigger, the boy retorted, “Even a mountain is stacked high upon rock by rock. A small problem can aggravate into serious repercussion in time to come.”
“I know what to do.”
He could not help pinching his son’s nose bridge as he gazed at him with great contentment. “You have your father’s style, indeed!”
“Hmph! Can you not shamelessly sing yourself praise indirectly through me?” His son stuck out his tongue at him mischievously as he leaned into his arms. “Daddy, I miss mommy! I really, really miss her. It seems that I haven’t seen her in ages!”
He sulkily and mournfully scrunched his face.
The man’s expression sank a little when he heard that.
There was no news from the woman even after a few days passed.
As for the boy, the last time he had spoken to her was sometime around last weekend through a video call.
His mother was still in her elaborate costume and had yet to remove the exquisite makeup on her face. With the heavy hair set on her head, she looked visibly tired.
She had taken a short break during filming to make this call. Hiding inside the changing room, she deliberately lowered her volume to a whisper when she talked to him.
After that call and a few texts, he had lost contact with her.
Thinking of her, he could only follow the news and trailers from the production’s official Weibo account to keep up to date with his mother’s status.
Over the last couple of days, his older brother was not as lively as before. Many times, he could be found sitting quietly on the sofa, surfing the website of ‘Lethal Beauty’.
The younger one said, “Next Monday is mommy’s birthday. I was the only one to celebrate it with her in the past!”
