His imposing manner was terrifying . His few words were laced with a threat that left one’s blood running cold .
They nodded their heads frantically, instantly expressing that they would not disclose this matter to anyone .
“At the same time, go back and tell my father that I do not need your protection . Do you understand?”
“Yes, Second Master! We understand!”
Gong Jie waved them off . The bodyguards got in the car as per his order and left speedily .
The man turned around, his eyes distant .
By the time Yun Shishi returned, Mu Yazhe was already home, but she did not see her two kids . He had probably chased them out for a walk on their way home and came back first .
The man was standing on the balcony, smoking quietly . It was rare for him not to be working in his study room .
There were several cigarette butts in the ashtray at the side . She counted it meticulously and saw that there were quite a few .
He was smoking quite intensely today .
Cigarettes were harmful to the body . She rarely saw him smoke; in fact, this was her first time seeing him smoking so viscously .
She was sensitive enough to know that he was in a bad mood today since returning home .
Perhaps he had encountered a problem at the company .
Yun Shishi walked over slowly, her footsteps so light that he did not notice when she entered the room .
She carefully encircled her arms around him from the back .
Mu Yazhe froze for a moment . When he realized that it was her, he gently placed a hand on the back of hers and smiled faintly . “You’re back . ”
She responded before moving to his front . She took away his cigarette and extinguished it in the ashtray, asking in a reproachful manner, “You are smoking very heavily today . Are you in a bad mood?”
“No . ”
“Still denying it? You usually wouldn’t smoke so many cigarettes . ”
She could not help but feel a little concerned . “Did you have some trouble at the company? You can tell me if you want; I can also give you some advice . ”
“What kind of advice can you give me?” asked the man with a loving smile . He caressed her head gently with a tinge of playfulness in his eyes .
“Even if I can’t give any advice, you can still consult me . ”
His lips curled into a smile as he mumbled, “Second Uncle talked with me today . ”
“He said that if I continue my involvement with you, he will be considering someone else for the family head position . ”
“What does that mean?”
“Don’t let your thoughts run wild . ”
The woman shook her head hurriedly . “I won’t; don’t worry . Just tell me everything directly . ”
All of a sudden, he asked seriously, “I’ll ask you first; if I am no longer the Mu family’s head, will you still be willing to be with me?”
Yun Shishi pondered on this . She did not know where this question was coming from . After staying silent for a moment, she smiled and answered truthfully, “I did not choose to be with you because I longed for your status as your family’s head . When I chose to be with you at the start, it was because I wanted Youyou to grow up with a father by his side . Another reason is that I love you . ”
Mu Yazhe’s eyes glinted .
He already knew the answer in his heart but hearing her say it aloud today was a great gratification .
He knew that this woman was devoted to him not for his status . Deep down, he knew about this well enough .
What she wanted was really simple . Her dream was something he could easily satisfy .
