The corner of his lips started to hang coldly. As his mind was elsewhere from the start, it should
be expected for the situation to turn a little awkward now!
Song Enya felt extremely awkward as well; when she recalled those words she should not have spoken to the man, she was, for a moment, at a loss on how to smoothen things out.
Meanwhile, Jiang Qimeng chuckled dryly twice, but deep down, she was utterly displeased.
Today was Children's Day; thus, she permitted Song Enya to bring Song Enxi to the theme park for a day of fun. The two left the house in one piece, yet her next meeting with her youngest daughter was at this hospital due to a head injury.
She was roughly informed of what had happened by Song Enya. The latter had not made herself clear over the phone, however, and had merely put all the blame on to Yichen.
The truth? Her eldest daughter was partly to blame.
Since she was the one who had brought Song Enxi out, while the little girl was outside, she should have faithfully fulfilled her duty as her guardian. Was she not, therefore, liable for the child getting hurt?
Back when Mu Yazhe had expressed his desire to visit the nearest desserts shop, she should have stayed behind to look after the two children. However, due to her harboring a selfish desire to monopolize the man's attention, she followed him and left the two, a five-year-old and a six-year-old, to their devices instead.
Then, when something happened, she simply pushed all the responsibility to Yichen.
This might be a common fault among rich young missies; perhaps, having been spoiled by her family from a young age, she mistakenly thought that she could do no wrong and therefore had no sense of responsibility.
On second thought, if she had remained to take care of the two kids, would such an incident have happened?
Earlier, while speaking to Jiang Qimeng, she had failed to mention about Song Enxi biting Little Yichen and only detailed about the former being pushed by the latter.
Recalling her statement at once, which she had quoted out of context, her mother would naturally perceive that this entire incident was the boy's willful doing – him pushing the little girl away out of playfulness.
Thus, Jiang Qimeng was, more or less, annoyed at him as Mu Yazhe sat down with an unsmiling and absent-minded face!
Her child had three stitches to close a wound on her nape and because of that, her hair was partially shaved off. It was unknown if it would grow back in the future.
Her daughter had not suffered this much injustice before.
As Yichen's father, it was only right for Mu Yazhe to shoulder some of the blame in this matter; one who was accountable should not be showing apathy on his face!
However, as unhappy as she was, she dared not say anything.
The Songs were indubitably distinguished within the capital. Capitalizing on Old Song's fame, their family remained in power with undiminished influence. Nonetheless, it was far from being on par with the Mu family and its businesses. The latter was simply a giant in every field it dabbled into; simply put, the Mus held absolute law in the capital!
Thus, no matter what, the Songs had to be subservient to the Mus.
Despite this, Jiang Qimeng did not feel good at all. Hence, she glanced menacingly at Song Enxi as she ordered, "Your Uncle Mu is tired. Get off him now! You child, why do you always like to cling on to others?"
The little girl snorted. "I don't wanna! I just like Uncle Mu!"
"Have you not suffered enough?!" Starting to get a little impatient, she flared up. "You are really too willful!"
"Wuu… wuuu… Mama is yelling at me…" The little girl's small face creased as drops of agonizing tears fell down.
"Mom, Enxi likes Brother Mu, so just let her be!" Song Enya said at the side.
Suddenly, the little girl was put down by Mu Yazhe as he stood up. He was, after all, still concerned about his son. Since it was getting late, Fairy Tale Valley should be closing soon!
His son's punishment should stop now!
