His assistant was taken aback with the unannounced arrival. Turning to look at the door, he timely saw Jiang Qimeng barging in. She scanned the room and, upon seeing him sitting at his desk, dashed forward immediately.
The man frowned at the sight of her.
“Cousin, what’s wrong? Why are you in such a hurry?”
The woman could not help grumbling at him. “Why didn’t you answer my call?”
The man gave her an impassive reply. “I just returned to my office after a meeting.”
“Chairman Mu…” The secretary tried to speak but stopped short as she glanced at the middle-aged lady in a daze.
“You can go back to work!” The assistant told her calmly.
“Understood.” She nodded and left after closing the door.
“What do you want?” asked the man.
“I…” She glanced uncomfortably at Min Yu, who was standing at the side.
The man signaled his assistant with a look. The latter was discerning enough to retreat respectfully from the room.
Once the subordinate was gone, the man signaled this relative on his mother’s side to go on. “You can speak now.”
“Enya is in trouble!” The middle-aged woman’s voice quivered as she looked at the young chap with teary eyes.
He was stunned by the news. Squinting his eyes warily, he reconfirmed what he had just heard. “She’s in trouble?”
“Eh!” The woman appeared distraught. Her voice was hoarse and her eyes were red, as well as swollen, from the earlier crying. Something terrible seemed to have transpired.
“I… This morning, the servant went to check on her… There’s no answer when they knocked on her door, but they could hear water running from the room. The servants got worried and had my son to look. Luckily, he was strong enough to break the door. Once they were inside the room, they found your niece bleeding in the bathtub. The water was tainted with her blood…”
As the woman narrated the story to him, her eyes were shrouded in fear as if reliving that moment once more.
“What did she do?”
The man seemed to sense something amiss.
“S-She… a silly girl for doing something so stupid…”
“Where is she now?”
“Yunxi quickly sent her to the hospital after he took her out of the bathtub. It’s fortunate that we found out early, and that saved her life. Her mood has been very unstable since she regained consciousness. We can’t leave her out of sight for fear of her doing something stupid again. Your nephew is looking after her now. I dare not bring this up to my husband, or else, he’ll fly into rage.”
She was still terrorized from the experience. They were so lucky to discover the girl early; she could not imagine losing her daughter forever.
The man’s heart settled somewhat after learning that his niece was safe now.
“Good to know that she’s alright now.”
The woman sized him up cautiously before muttering, “She wants to see you. She said she must apologize to you. Do you think you can pay her a visit to console her? She’s been looking haggard since coming out of the emergency room. My daughter also refused to talk to her brother. She’s too spoiled for her good, and I’m on my wits’ end. I know this is too much to ask from you, but you may be the only one she’ll listen to. She has refused the rest of us.”
