His imposing manner was terrifying. His few words were laced with a threat that left one’s blood running cold.
They nodded their heads frantically, instantly expressing that they would not disclose this matter to anyone.
“At the same time, go back and tell my father that I do not need your protection. Do you understand?”
“Yes, Second Master! We understand!”
Gong Jie waved them off. The bodyguards got in the car as per his order and left speedily.
The man turned around, his eyes distant.
By the time Yun Shishi returned, Mu Yazhe was already home, but she did not see her two kids. He had probably chased them out for a walk on their way home and came back first.
The man was standing on the balcony, smoking quietly. It was rare for him not to be working in his study room.
There were several cigarette butts in the ashtray at the side. She counted it meticulously and saw that there were quite a few.
He was smoking quite intensely today.
Cigarettes were harmful to the body. She rarely saw him smoke; in fact, this was her first time seeing him smoking so viscously.
She was sensitive enough to know that he was in a bad mood today since returning home.
Perhaps he had encountered a problem at the company.
Yun Shishi walked over slowly, her footsteps so light that he did not notice when she entered the room.
She carefully encircled her arms around him from the back.
Mu Yazhe froze for a moment. When he realized that it was her, he gently placed a hand on the back of hers and smiled faintly. “You’re back.”
She responded before moving to his front. She took away his cigarette and extinguished it in the ashtray, asking in a reproachful manner, “You are smoking very heavily today. Are you in a bad mood?”
“Still denying it? You usually wouldn’t smoke so many cigarettes.”
She could not help but feel a little concerned. “Did you have some trouble at the company? You can tell me if you want; I can also give you some advice.”
“What kind of advice can you give me?” asked the man with a loving smile. He caressed her head gently with a tinge of playfulness in his eyes.
“Even if I can’t give any advice, you can still consult me.”
His lips curled into a smile as he mumbled, “Second Uncle talked with me today.”
“He said that if I continue my involvement with you, he will be considering someone else for the family head position.”
“What does that mean?”
“Don’t let your thoughts run wild.”
The woman shook her head hurriedly. “I won’t; don’t worry. Just tell me everything directly.”
All of a sudden, he asked seriously, “I’ll ask you first; if I am no longer the Mu family’s head, will you still be willing to be with me?”
Yun Shishi pondered on this. She did not know where this question was coming from. After staying silent for a moment, she smiled and answered truthfully, “I did not choose to be with you because I longed for your status as your family’s head. When I chose to be with you at the start, it was because I wanted Youyou to grow up with a father by his side. Another reason is that I love you.”
Mu Yazhe’s eyes glinted.
He already knew the answer in his heart but hearing her say it aloud today was a great gratification.
He knew that this woman was devoted to him not for his status. Deep down, he knew about this well enough.
What she wanted was really simple. Her dream was something he could easily satisfy.
