Chapter 2023: The Two Most Important Women in His Life
Yun Shishi nodded. “He loves and misses his mother a lot.”
“Yes. That’s exactly why it’s so hard for him to turn against his niece. Song Enya probably knows that weakness of his and has been making use of it.”
Her manager continued speaking. “They’ve been through thick and thin together in the family since he was little. Didn’t the Mu Group name one of the estates they developed ‘Yun Shan Shi Yi’ just a while ago? It’s a combination of your name and his mother’s, Jiang Yishan.”
That got her attention right away.
Yun Shan Shi Yi…
Yun Shan Shi Yi…?
So that’s what the name means.
“You two are probably the most important women in his heart and life.”
“Yes. That estate holds a lot of meaning to my boss. The fact that he named it after you is enough to prove how much weight you have in his heart. He might be a man of few words and a blockhead when it comes to saying sweet nothings, but he’s always been true to you.”
The woman’s heart squeezed a little when she heard that.
Apart from his mother, I’m the most important woman to him…
This knowledge moved her to bits, making her anger toward him ebb a little.
Qin Zhou went on saying, “Even though Jiang Qimeng, his niece’s mother, got married to Song Zhengguo and gave birth to a son and two daughters, she doesn’t hold much of a status in the family. The missy, though, ended up getting spoiled rotten by her father, which made her grow up into an obnoxious and unreasonable person. I, too, dislike her very much; I find her overly spoiled and willful.”
His dumbfounded charge responded, “She’s only the daughter of a mayor at best, yet she acts like a princess wherever she goes.”
“There’s more to the Songs than that,” quipped her manager. “Do you know anything about her grandfather?”
“Just a little. He seems to be an important and influential figure.”
He explained, “You mustn’t underestimate the influence that family holds. Her grandfather is one of the founding fathers of our country. Although he’s gotten on in years, his reputation and status are still illustrious. Plus, he has developed deep-rooted power and beneficial connections with plenty of other large, powerful families over the years. It’s only on the boss’s account and their fear of him that Song Enya couldn’t take any actions against you. Once you leave his protection, though, she can easily crush you with just a finger.”
What a fearsome family.
The younger chap frowned. He had a bit of an impression of the said family, having heard about them from Xiaoya. The latter’s family had close ties with the Songs and the woman herself was a close acquaintance of the mayor’s daughter.
The agent told the actress, “The interests involved between the two families are far more complicated than you can imagine. The Mus are, therefore, disgruntled that my boss has gotten on bad terms with the Songs for your sake. It’s also one of the reasons why they’re so against you. You don’t have to worry, though. With him around, they won’t be able to do anything to you.”
“Thanks for telling me all this. Now that I know, I realize that I might’ve been a tad too harsh on him earlier.”
“I’m not saying that you’ve gone overboard; I’m just reminding you not to overanalyze his words. As you know, he can be extremely obstinate at times and isn’t quite as sensitive and meticulous as you about relationships, but he is true to you. Everyone can see that.”
Hua Jin appeared slightly crestfallen as he apologized profusely, “I’m so sorry, Shishi; it’s my fault. It wasn’t my intention to cause a misunderstanding between you two…”
