The middle-aged woman was caught by surprise by the sudden appearance of these trained men and stumbled a few steps backward in horrified alarm.
It was only when a few of her men came around to put her behind them protectively that she managed to calm down somewhat.
Following that, she took a careful look at new arrivals and gave a cold snort. She could immediately tell whom these men reported to.
Mu Yazhe had a team of elite guards, with some of them even from the special forces. These men, who used to hold high ranks while serving in the army, were retired front-line soldiers. All of them were highly skilled and had actual combat experience.
Only the head of the Mu household could have access to such a skilled team. She knew, there and then, that her nephew had sent these men to protect the woman.
The thought was enough to make her hit the roof.
That rascal is incorrigible! He’s besotted to this woman beyond hope!
Once, she asked him for some bodyguards, but he adamantly refused. The thought that he had sent these experts to protect this b*tch incensed her so much!
The outcome was settled within a few minutes. Despite her men being trained, they were no match for her nephew’s bodyguards at all. In fact, they had been merciful in their retaliation to her men.
The older woman flew into a rage and exclaimed, “How dare you?! Are you guys crazy enough to defy me?! Do you know who I am? How dare you do this to my people!”
Alas, the other side paid no heed to her and merely continued beating her people. She bellowed at the top of her lungs, “Are you all mad?! Do you hear what I’ve just said?! Stop it! I command all of you to stop it now!”
Just as she finished her words, her most dependable bodyguard was sent flying through the air and landed right next to her. He had been kicked in the ribs and was rolling on the ground in agony. Her gang was fighting burly men of at least 1.8 meters in height. With their overpowering strength and hardy leather boots, it would not be unusual for her men to suffer multiple broken ribs in this fight.
The middle-aged woman was stunned by her gang’s defeat and let out a scream of horror.
“How dare you?! Y-You… Are you all nuts?! This is crazy! I’m the aunt of Mu Yazhe! I told you to stop!”
Mu Xi, who was standing beside her artist, was shocked by this revelation.
Having found out that their assailants were sent by someone from the Mu family, and one who was more senior than Chairman Mu, she dared not utter a word anymore. She could see where the arrogance of the older woman was coming from, and she knew that she had no place to fight against that authority.
At the very least, her artist was still the wife of the man. As for her, she had no one to stand up for her if she were to shoot her mouth off. The assistant could truly not afford to offend this obnoxious woman.
One of his men turned to the older woman and stared her down with a glint. The elder could not help backing off toward her car, trembling in fear, as the man gave off a menacing aura.
He finally spoke in a stern, low voice. “Director Mu, Chairman Mu has given us a firm order. Regardless of who they are, we aren’t to show mercy on those who try to harm the lady in any way!”
