He only heard that bit about flattening the Mu Group . Those resonant words were so powerfully uttered that he heard them loud and clear!
A question could not help popping in his head .
Who is this guy?!
He’s so arrogant!
Flatten the Mu Group?!
What gave him the courage to threaten our chief?!
Is he here to disrupt this engagement?!
With a cold face, Jiang Shen approached them but got stopped by his boss .
He was puzzled, not knowing why the latter had stopped him .
Even Lu Jinyu, who had rushed over at the scene as well, was surprised to see this . Though he did not hear Gong Jie’s provocative words, just by looking at his unfriendly stance, he knew that the intruder boded ill-will!
Mu Yazhe’s face darkened slightly, but he remained mum .
Gong Jie stared fixedly and aggressively at him like a lion protecting its pride’s happiness .
Sure, she could marry this man!
He was willing to trust his sister’s judgment and decision . As her brother, he had no right to interfere in her affairs even though he was worried!
His only bottom line was that she must be happy; this must not be crossed no matter what!
Protecting her happiness was his principle .
This was just like how Youyou had once questioned his father . ‘What’s the reason behind one’s decision to become more powerful?’
His answer was the same as his nephew, and that was protecting his loved ones .
Yun Shishi was his most beloved person, so he was naturally duty-bound to safeguard her happiness!
He silently scrutinized the man as he awaited a response from this brother-in-law of his!
After what seemed like a century of still silence, the latter suddenly smirked . “Flatten the Mu Group?”
He merely raised a brow at that . The raging emotions in his eyes, though, spoke volumes of his warning to the man . If he could say such words, it meant that he could deliver!
There was not much expression on Mu Yazhe’s face except for a slight regretful look . “I’m sorry, but I think you won’t get the chance to do so!”
With that, his lips tugged up in a conceited smirk .
Since he was determined to marry her, he would then spoil her for life .
For richer and for poorer, as well as in sickness and in health .
Likewise, cherishing this woman was his bottom line as her husband!
“I don’t need you to remind me of this . ”
Hearing that, Gong Jie smiled and raised a brow . He was obviously very satisfied with the response he got .
“That’d better be!”
Yun Shishi looked at them out of her curiosity, but it was just too bad that she could not see clearly their silent confrontation .
Her brother turned toward her and smiled before he very naturally hooked an arm around the other man’s shoulders . “I was just having a friendly chat with my brother-in-law . ”
Mu Yazhe: “…”
Cordial and friendly?
Saying words like ‘flattening the Mu Group’ was friendly?
The corners of his eyes twitched for a bit .
The woman was apparently unconvinced as well, for she asked askance, “You looked aggressive earlier, though . ”
He frankly owned up to it . “Yup! I was threatening my dearest brother-in-law earlier; if he mistreats you, I’ll flatten his Mu Group . ”
His reply stunned her for a bit . Thinking that it was merely a joke, she immediately told him, “Xiao Jie, enough with the jokes!”
Feeling aggrieved, he pouted at her . “I’m not kidding, sis! I’m just worried that you’ll be bullied once you get married to him, so I’m giving brother-in-law a warning now . ”
