Presently, she was already methodically carrying out Mu Lianjue's plans!
Things had changed, though!
Mu Yazhe was willing to marry her. This meant that she would be the Mu family's young mistress soon!
This also meant that she should be standing in the same line as him and facing off against his uncle.
Should she still carry out his uncle's plans?
She was troubled by this series of events.
On another thought, since he was willing to marry her, she must stand on his side and protect him at all cost!
After all, once they were married, they would share honor and disgrace together. If he lost his status because of his uncle, she would soon follow his steps!
She did not know what the man had in mind, though. To her, he was so unfathomable.
Therefore, she was hesitating.
Over the following few days, the entire Mu family got busy preparing for the wedding.
Aaron suddenly looked for her one day.
The two met at a secluded place.
Upon seeing her, his first words were: "Wanrou, leave with me! Let's elope and go somewhere far from this troubled place!"
"Aaron, don't look for me again. Let's return to the way we used to be in the future. I'm Mu Yazhe's fiancée and you're his assistant!" she coldly refused.
Suddenly, he broke out into laughter. "Wanrou, what are you talking about? Are you daydreaming? What fiancée? Do you really think that he will marry you?"
She smugly answered, "Why not? He said that he will marry me on an auspicious date and is now making arrangements."
He was shocked.
"How is this possible?!"
"Why is it impossible? He has already promised grandpa; in fact, all the Mus are preparing to release news of our upcoming wedding."
There was an undisguised smugness on her face.
He sneered. "Impossible!"
"There's nothing impossible. You're just being indignant!"
"Do you really think he's that stupid? Wanrou, think about it; does he really intend to marry you? Leaving aside the question of your identity, while you may have fooled Mu Sheng with your pregnancy, do you think that you can fool Mu Yazhe? Can he marry a woman who's pregnant with another man's child?"
Her heart skipped a beat. "Why is it impossible? He'll marry me because he doesn't want to go against grandpa's orders—"
"Hah! You think too highly of him!" he retorted. "He's definitely no simple man! Don't lower your guard. He may have set a trap for you and is just waiting for you to jump in it! The Mu household is a tiger's den. Has it ever crossed your mind what he's gone through to be the man he is today at such a young age? Do you really think that he is a simple man? The fact is that he's even more unfathomable than you think!"
She shuddered in fear at his words.
"Leave with me! Eloping with me is the best choice you have now!"
He reached out to her and opened his hand.
In her momentarily disorientation, she actually reached her hand toward him.
Seeing that she seemed to have changed her mind, he was pleased. However, in the next moment, she violently smacked his hand away.
