The man narrowed his eyes instantly.
He must admit that he was getting more and more impressed with his son.
As a Chinese idiom went, 'the student would surpass the teacher.' In their case, it was the son surpassing his father.
This son of his would achieve big things in the future! His thinking was so meticulous at such a tender age, and he even knew how to see through the dark intrigues and base behaviors of unscrupulous families like the Mu!
Nevertheless, to be frank, he was not too happy about it.
While his precious son seemed to know everything about him, he was still unsure of the power supporting his son!
"You stay here and look after your mom; I have to return to the Mu household for a while." He reminded the boy once more before leaving hastily.
On the way back to the Mu residence, he received another call from his grandfather to hurry home.
The old man reiterated that he had something important to announce.
He reckoned that this was probably the matter of his wedding with Mu Wanrou!
He received news from the Mu family that his grandfather's health had deteriorated recently, and things were not looking good for the old patriarch.
Likewise, the old man could tell that he did not have long to live, so he started to fret over their wedding. He got down to the wedding preparations.
According to his sources, Grandmaster Mu wanted to hold the wedding in a month's time.
He had refrained from returning to the Mu residence in these last few days and arranged for Little Yichen to stay in a condominium beside Disheng's office.
Mu Sheng did not say anything when he saw his grandson back in the house.
Mu Wanrou, who was standing beside the old man, secretly observed the man, hoping to see what was on his mind.
He happened to catch her peeking at him sneakily when he glimpsed at her.
His sharp and icy look shot daggers at her, which sent her heart floundering.
Somehow, she sensed that nothing she did could escape his eyes!
As the man sat down, the old man cut to the chase. "What date do you want the wedding to be held?"
It was an indisputable question.
Before he could say anything, the old man continued unhappily. "Wanrou is pregnant now, so the wedding can't be delayed further! My heart can only have its peace when your wedding date is finalized! Ah Zhe, I don't care what you do outside, but you are no longer young, so it's time for you to settle down and have a family! Grandpa's last wish is to see you marry Wanrou. Only then can she truly be a member of the Mu family! If my health permits it, I really want to see your child being born. You've never defied grandpa's wishes. Grandpa's physique may not hold up any longer so stop fooling around. At the very least, just help me fulfill my last wish!"
The old man's words were sincere.
To him, she could only be a proper Mu after she married into the household.
He desired to give her the proper status of the Mu family's young mistress.
The man looked up with frosty eyes.
Seeing his frigid look, the old Mu suddenly said, "If you really like that woman, then so be it. You can marry her as your mistress; this will be possible, too."
Is that woman called Yun Shishi?
He narrowed his eyes slightly as he thought to himself.
She's rather formidable!
After all, his grandson did not care for a woman all these years. When it came to the opposite sex, he was detached and disinterested.
Thus, that woman was actually the first and only one in his grandson's life.
For this woman, his grandson resisted his authority openly.
