"What do you mean?" She did not fully understand it!
She, all along, found Mu Wanrou's pregnancy to be suspicious.
It was very strange no matter what angle one looked at it.
Seven years ago, that woman had burst into the room and condescendingly threatened her. If it were not for her infertility, there would be no chance for her surrogacy at all.
That was when she had become privy to the fiancée of the employer, whom she had signed a contract with, being infertile.
How could someone, who had been diagnosed by various medical authorities, suddenly become pregnant?
It was extremely bizarre and practically unheard of.
Even though miracles did happen, Mu Wanrou's case was just too strange.
Noting her constantly changing expressions, he slowly explained, "I got someone to falsify her so-called infertility diagnosis."
He had someone falsify that woman's medical report?!
Indeed, this man was extremely powerful.
In the capital, with the Mu family's power and influence, this man was a character that could shift one's ground and bring people horror with a lift of his hand.
Falsifying a medical diagnosis was nothing more than a small act to him.
"Why did you do that?" she asked with alarm and perplexity.
The corner of his eyes raised slightly, and cold light shot forth from the depths of his orbs as he calmly answered, "She's a pawn. A pawn must obey the will of its master. This is the duty that she should fulfil in her given role!"
She was stunned.
Still, after careful deliberation, her surprise abated.
It did not feel strange anymore to hear such ruthless and indifferent words from his mouth.
She remained confused, though.
"A pawn? What pawn?"
"At that time, grandpa ordered me to be engaged with her," he sneeringly explained, "in exchange for the inheritance rights to the Mu family's head seat."
With the size of Mu clan, not everyone was eligible to step foot into its main residence.
Only the Mu family's head and his progeny were entitled to live in the main residence.
At the passing of his father, he and his mother threaded on thin ice in this huge family while relying on each other.
The internal of the clan rose and fell, and there were many Mu family factions.
Be it the direct descendants or the collateral branches, many were covetously eyeing his position.
He, as Mu Sheng's lofty grandson, was the most viable heir to the seat of the Mu family's leader.
Therefore, he was a thorn in those people's flesh, and many wanted to uproot him from the main branch and usurp his eligibility to inherit the highest position in the family.
He lived in fear every day and every moment.
As such, back then, the Mu family's inheritance was indubitably a talisman for him and his mother.
"At that time, grandpa was old, and his body was getting worse. Ever since my father's passing, the position as the Mu family's head has been kept empty. Many people were eyeing it, and grandpa was hesitant to name the next head."
With a blank face, he continued to recount. "I, as the most viable inheritor for the position that many were coveting, was not old enough."
"To secure my succession, I used marriage as a bargaining chip, and Mu Wanrou, thus, became a pawn for me to exploit. Do you think I'll develop any romantic feelings for a pawn?"
Chill settled in her heart.
He was absolutely evil to the core to exploit people in such a manner.
If that woman ever found out that her infertility was for this man's benefit, how would she feel at having been reduced into a tactical piece to this game of chess?
She would most likely go crazy.
