Both young chaps blasted the old man at the same time.
They glanced at each other afterward. Gong Jie’s eyes spoke of enmity.
He pulled his sister to one side and threw the man a look of displeasure. His eyes burned with fury as he pointed at the two elders and interrogated him, “What’s this about?!”
He originally thought that this engagement had received all parties’ blessings!
All of a sudden, these two elders, who had shown up out of nowhere, had plenty of bad comments against his sister. Looking at their speech and behavior, he could pretty much deduce who they were!
They belonged to the Mus!
However, they had been rude and demanding since they appeared and had even gone so far as to call his sister a wild sow!
His ears vividly caught that vicious slur!
What ‘wild sow’?!
His fury reached a tipping point when he heard that; the knuckles of his hand, which was holding her, went stiff and tight.
Yun Shishi was startled by his overwhelming fury and reached for his shoulder to comfort him. She could see him staring accusingly at her betrothed. “Who dared to call my sister a wild sow?! Who gave them the permission?!”
The old man was antagonized by the young man’s words!
Who is this clueless, naïve, young chap?!
How dare he come up with such words?!
What did he mean by his questions?
He’s too audacious and arrogant!
Does he know who I am?
He’ll surely regret his words once he knows my identity!
He’s like the typically headstrong, young man who’s got no idea whom he’s just offended.
While the old man was too angry to speak, Mu Shumin chipped in sarcastically, “Who is this audacious chap?! He must be her brother judging from their identical looks! The sister here is shamelessly trying to climb the social ladder, and the brother is doing the same, too, right?!”
Her nephew told her off sullenly.
The old woman frowned, and her face gave an angry twitch. “Yazhe, who are you telling to shut up?!”
“I’m telling you to shut up!”
His anger was apparent by now.
Gazing at the young guy’s hand on his fiancée’s waist, he ordered coldly, “Let her go!”
“She’s my sister—it’s my duty to protect her! She’s bullied in the past because I wasn’t around, but now, I won’t let anyone humiliate her ever again!”
The other refused to let go of his sister.
He was slightly regretting it now all of a sudden.
This was only the two’s engagement, yet he was already witnessing his sister being humiliated with his eyes. Judging from how the situation had developed thus far, he reckoned that this was not the first time.
He could not imagine how many grievances she had borne when he was not around!
What did this mean?
This meant that the man in front of him could not protect his sister at all.
This meant that he was incapable of protecting her! How could he allow his sister to marry him if that was so?!
He could not even convince himself in this regard.
The moment his thought came to this, he pushed his sister protectively behind him. His protective stance toward her only made the other frown harder.
With his face devoid of any expression, he said, “Shishi is my wife; it’s my duty to protect her when she gets bullied. You’re in no place to butt in!”
