“I… Are you blaming me for this?” Jiang Qimeng was infuriated. “How could you say such things? Did you and your sister set out to aggravate me?”
“I wouldn’t dare.”
Song Yunxi snorted coldly before drinking a mouthful of tea, sinking into the couch weakly.
“The issue with the mercenaries is exhausting enough, mentally and physically, yet I still have to come back and coax those baby sisters of mine. Mom, stop pampering her so much. Enya is all grown up now. She has her opinions when she does things.”
“…Opinions?” She was momentarily speechless. “What kind of good opinions can that lass have? She causes trouble all day. Yazhe doesn’t like her at all, yet she still latches onto him. Wouldn’t she just look like a joke to others?”
“Uncle Mu is her relative; they are blood-related. No matter how much she likes him, she needs to know that there is a limit. I think she has gone crazy and doesn’t even care about this basic ethics concept. It is laughable that she even dared to think about being with her uncle,” responded her son.
“To be honest, if two people truly have feelings for each other, it isn’t impossible for them to be together. There are many families wherein cousins can get married. It isn’t a secret and can also not lead to mockery per se.” She paused for a moment before continuing to voice her opinion. “I must say: I like that young chap. He’s extraordinarily capable and outstanding. No one in the Mu family is as courageous and as responsible as him, so I don’t object to it. The problem is that your uncle only sees your sister as his sibling. One can’t force things like feelings toward another. Plus, he is a stubborn—”
“Mom, have you gone mad, too? If dad were to hear your words, he’d go ballistic,” Her son interrupted her words. “Sis is causing trouble because of her lack of sensibility, yet you want to join in, too? This is utter chaos.”
She was rendered speechless from anger.
To be honest, she really liked Mu Yazhe.
Unfortunately, that young chap only saw and treated her daughter as his sister.
She let out a sigh and asked, “Are you hungry? If you are, I will prepare some food for you.”
Song Yunxi waved his hand. “There’s no need! I’m not hungry. I’ve already eaten.”
He paused for a moment before continuing. “Even if I haven’t, I’m already full from being angered by Enya.”
Jiang Qimeng was divided between laughing and crying. Even as she sat next to her son, she still looked deeply worried.
“I don’t know who your sister got her temper!”
Her son’s anger had evidently not dissipated yet, for he replied unhappily, “She’s been pampered and treated like a princess since young. How good could her temper be?”
“She’s your sister! How could you say such things about her as her brother?” she reprimanded.
“Fine. I won’t speak anymore, alright? Look; I only said a few words, and you’re already defending her! It would be strange if she didn’t become spoiled!”
Song Yunxi stood up impatiently and walked up the stairs.
“Where are you going?” She questioned him.
“I’m going to read in the study—and sleep!”
He was in a terrible mood and did not want to talk to his mother any longer.
Jiang Qimeng shook her head but did not say anything else.
In the bedroom, Song Enya stood at the balcony and called a number.
“How is the planning going?”
“Miss, you don’t have to worry. Everything has been arranged properly. We have already sneaked her out and are just waiting for you to deal with her.”
“Watch her carefully and don’t let her get away!”
She had a cruel smile on her face as she said slowly, “I want to put her into use the day after tomorrow.”
Putting down the phone, she raised her gaze quietly and looked at the pitch-black garden as her lips curved into a cold arch.
