His son's punishment should stop now!
Even if Yichen had not called to apologize earnestly, he had already lost his patience.
Realizing that he was about to leave, Song Enya quickly went forward and asked, "Brother Mu, where are you going?"
"To fetch my child!" He curtly replied.
Jiang Qimeng lifted Song Enxi up and spoke precipitously, "Yazhe, there's something that I, as a sister, should advise you about. Don't spoil your boy every time. He must develop a sense of responsibility at this age! Take Yunxi as an example; he was mischievous when he was much younger and constantly landed himself in trouble, but I told him then, that as a man, he must be accountable for his actions and be liable for his wrongdoings! The Songs, as usual, will not pursue this matter, but I hope that you can ask Yichen to apologize to my daughter…"
Mu Yazhe's back stiffened, and immediately, a spirit of ferocity radiated off him.
He slowly turned to face them with a more unperturbed look.
"It's my family's business as to how I discipline my son; the Songs have no right to intervene!"
She took on a ghastly expression upon hearing that.
Her son could not bear it further and expressed his displeasure. "Uncle Mu, what do you mean by that? Even after this has happened, the Songs have given the Mu family their due respect. Now, we just wish for Yichen to apologize—"
"Sure." He cut his words short impudently.
Song Yunxi was startled.
A smile of relief then spread on Jiang Qimeng's face.
"Can Yichen request for Enxi to apologize for biting him too?"
Her smile instantly froze.
"What do you mean?"
"What do I mean? You should ask your daughter." He uttered this before he left the ward.
The crowd he had left behind had a look of consternation.
Song Enya stood before Song Enxi and confronted, "What exactly happened today?!"
The little girl raised her head and stared at her with moist eyes. The person whom she was most frightened of in the family was probably none other than this sister of hers. She knew that she had done something wrong and, more importantly, she had made Uncle Mu angry because of it!
While she was feeling indignant, she was feeling somewhat regretful as well!
Flustered, Song Enya bellowed, "Say something! What in the world is going on?! Why did Yichen push you?!"
The little girl burst into tears from her reprimand.
Song Yunxi was pained upon seeing his sister wail and went to her right away. "She's still young; don't scold her like that!"
"Yunxi, you always spoil her! Look at her and at how willful she's become!" She glared at him before lowering her head to look at her little sister threateningly. "If you're not well-behaved, Uncle Mu won't like you anymore!"
"Wuuu! It's all because of Yichen! He didn't let me look at his watch and fought over Uncle Mu with me! Wuuu… He even said that I'm a monster, so I bit him once in anger! Just once… uuu…"
She whined and sobbed as she recounted the incident from start to finish.
It turned out that the little boy had truly not exerted much force when pushing her. She was simply being deliberate, making it seem as if he had pushed her hard, so that she could complain about it to Mu Yazhe when the time came.
However, she did not expect to fall down a flight of stairs and disastrously hit the back of her head.
At this instant, Jiang Qimeng had turned white with rage. She lifted her small hand up and landed a strike on her palm. "Why didn't you tell mommy earlier?!"
"I'm scared of mommy scolding me! Wuuu…"
A phone rang without warning.
Song Enya looked in the direction of the ringtone. It was Mu Yazhe's phone; it had slid out of his pocket while he was sitting on the sofa.
