Chapter 2050: Do not embarrass yourself further.
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Auntie Shumin, I see that you haven’t fully recovered from your injuries. Why don’t you stay at home to rest instead of finding trouble for yourself? I’ll advise you to leave this place to avoid further embarrassment.”
“Don’t address me as your aunt! I will never acknowledge you as my niece-in-law! You can dream on!”
The older woman was adamant in giving the lass her biggest humiliation.
Unluckily for the middle-aged lady, the young one did not take the bait and refuted her, instead. “I address you as my aunt for the sake of my husband. You can’t blame me for being rude when you refuse to acknowledge me, can you?” After a brief pause, she continued speaking. “In any case, it suits me perfectly well. I have no wish to acknowledge another auntie like you; it feels too awkward.”
Mu Shumin gnashed her teeth at the young woman’s witty retort.
“Let me give you a piece of advice: You’re an eyesore. It’s much preferred that you leave now to avoid further humiliation.”
These words stabbed right at the older one’s heart, yet she could do nothing about it. Waving her hand furiously at her men, she ordered, “Hmph! Let’s go!”
Before she stormed off, she issued a final warning. “Woman, don’t be conceited! Do you think you are left to your whims simply because that chap is around to protect you? Let me tell you: The Mu family isn’t a household you can enter easily. You’ll never see that day coming as long as I’m around! Hmph!”
Soon after she got into the vehicle, it sped off the scene.
Yun Shishi watched the car disappear into the distance with a smirk, but once it was out of her sight, her countenance soon turned stiff before her breathing turned uneven. In reality, much like the senior woman, she was antagonized by this confrontation.
This was not her first time being lambasted in public, except that this time around, she chose to bear the criticism as much as she could.
She turned to the men around her and thanked them with a smile. “Thank you!”
“You’re welcome! It’s our responsibility to protect you. We’re simply following Chairman Mu’s order.”
“No matter what, I still want to express my gratitude for your help!” she thanked, smiling as she raised a question. “How did you know that I was in trouble?”
“The chairman instructed us not to intrude into your privacy, so we’ve been shadowing you quietly.”
They were dispatched to protect her in secret as soon as she returned home, and they, being the best of the best, naturally carried out their assignment without a hitch. This was why she had never discovered their existence.
Her heart was warmed even while she gawked at the thought of what she had missed right under her eyes.
It turned out… that her man had been protecting her even though there was no mention of it. He had always been like this, taking action without saying a word.
Meanwhile, the assistant brimmed with envy as she whispered to her artist, “Shishi, I’m so envious of you! Chairman Mu is always looking out for you. I didn’t know that he sent his bodyguards to protect you. Thank goodness for them. If not, we would’ve been done for! Those people brought here by that old woman would easily break our bones!”
“That old woman…” Yun Shishi laughed. “Has your mouth turned vicious only after she left?”
“What to do?! I’m just a small fry and must maintain a low profile before her. With her status, she could easily crush me!” The young assistant could not help expressing her forlorn envy, though. “If I had your husband’s protection like you do, I would say anything I wanted to say, much like a crab allowed to get its way crawling horizontally.”
What a description.
The artist was very much amused.
“Alright. Don’t let this bother you anymore. It’s late already, and we should be on our way.”
