Chapter 2192: Hate him to the marrow of her bones.
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Her present self was full of hatred for Mu Yazhe, down to the marrow of her bones. Her love for him was so persistent and crazy, but what did she get in return? She was made into a clown by him!
She recalled the fear and worries she had when she started the in-vitro treatment, and it stirred up her repressed agony. She could not let the matter rest.
How did I end up in such a pathetic state?
“You are exceptional and outstanding; it’s his loss for not choosing you! Don’t harp on this anymore, daughter!” gently consoled her mother again.
Song Enya listened to her words with gritted teeth and felt a little better after that.
Brother Mu, just you wait and see! One day, I’ll repay all the humiliation you’ve brought upon me!
When Song Zhengguo returned home from a dinner appointment that night, he looked terribly upset.
His wife had just settled their daughter not long before she noticed his sullen mood. Feeling vexed, she questioned, “What’s wrong with you? You don’t look good!”
“Did you go to the hospital today?” Ignoring her question, he shot his own, instead.
She nodded. “We did the test twice and both results point to Mu Yancheng!”
The middle-aged man looked worried rather than happy when he heard that. “I found out today that, apparently, the Mus did not know about this yet!”
“Of course! Our daughter did a clean job in ensuring that nobody would find out. It’s not surprising that they don’t know about this.”
“That’s not the problem here.”
“Oh? Then, what is the issue?”
Her husband glanced at her obliquely and spouted an unexpected piece of news to her. “Mu Linfeng is going to arrange a matchmaking session for Mu Yancheng! Are you aware of this?”
The middle-aged woman was dumbfounded. “Matchmaking?!”
“Yes! I was told that they already have a lady in mind. The old man wants to matchmake the chap with the third missy from the Lins!”
Jiang Qimeng’s face started sinking as well, and she exclaimed worriedly, “The Lins… are a formidable family, aren’t they?! Lin Xueya not only comes from an excellent family but also highly educated. Even though she’s the third child in the family, she is doted upon by the Lins. It’s no wonder Mu Linfeng is considering this girl for matchmaking, but… what about our daughter now?!”
“I’m also deliberating over this problem!” retorted the man with furrowed brows.
His wife suggested, “How about we speak to Yancheng about this?”
“There’s no hurry! That missy is terribly arrogant; she may be keen on Mu Yazhe but not necessarily on Mu Yancheng! We mustn’t cheapen ourselves by appearing too eager!”
“So… are you saying that we should adopt a wait-and-see approach?”
“Yes!” Her husband nodded, then asked after his daughter with concern. “How’s Enya now? Is her mood more settled now?”
“She is feeling a little better now, but somehow, she’s still unable to let the matter rest. It’ll take some time for her to come to terms with all this.” Suddenly, she recalled something and asked with trepidation, “What about that matter; did you agree to Yazhe’s demand last night?!”
“You mean the fee that he blackmailed me with so that he wouldn’t spill the beans?”
His face sank, and after a long, heavy sigh, he shook his head in resignation. “I guess I’ll have to give up that land parcel if he wants that! I can’t think of any way out other than this. He can consider himself lucky this time!”
“Are you sure that… this is the best way out? That land is priceless!”
Her husband snorted indignantly. “Tell me, then: What else can we do?!”
