The woman leisurely sipped her drink, not in a hurry to speak; after all, there was no need for her to open her mouth first since she was a guest here .
Since Mu Linfeng was the one who had asked her to come down for a discussion, she decided to wait for him to tell her what important matter it was that required her presence here .
Besides the few authoritative figures of this family, several seniors and high-ranking stakeholders of Disheng were also present . By the looks of this lineup, she appeared to have been led into an ambush!
If this were someone else, they would probably be quivering in fear and stuttering incoherently .
Yun Shishi, however, was not fazed by them . These people were the ones who had invited her to come over, so there was no need to worry that they would do anything to her .
Furthermore, she had already let her husband know of her location, even though her call on the way here was picked up by his assistant . According to Min Yu, the man was in a meeting and was unavailable to take the call . When he inquired about the purpose of her call, she smilingly replied, “Just pass the message that I’ll be waiting for him at the Mu residence; remember to ask him to come straight here after work!” The assistant had also agreed to relay this message to his boss .
My husband doesn’t know that I’ve been summoned to the Mu residence, huh?
Is Mu Linfeng playing tricks with me?
She was not worried at all, nonetheless .
There were several unfamiliar yet young-looking faces among those present as well .
She glanced at the young man who was sitting beside Mu Shumin .
By appearance, he looked to be around his twenties . She could even see traces of her husband in the young chap’s features; the latter’s eyes and nose, in particular, somewhat resembled the man’s, though they were not exactly the same .
Genes were truly such a curious thing .
While Mu Yancheng’s features were quite alike Mu Yazhe, he did not have half of the insufferably arrogant demeanor of the other . Hence, despite his outstanding looks and extraordinary presence, the two appeared to be worlds apart when they stood side by side .
No wonder he had always been neglected and cast in the shadows in this family . With the other man around, he could only stand on the sidelines—in fact, he might not even be qualified to do so .
Nonetheless, ever since that deep conversation with his aunt, he had soon gained the trust and acknowledgment of his second uncle .
What the elderly man expected from him was very simple should he succeed the position of the family head: the former wanted absolute power and authority of Disheng and the Mu Group .
Strictly speaking, though, the young chap would be no more than a puppet on a string—to be a mere figurehead .
Still, he was fine with it either way since he was, admittedly, neither as capable and talented as his cousin, nor was he confident in leading both the family and the company . He could not guarantee that he could bring the Mu Group to a greater height, surpass the achievements of the other, and become a more formidable overlord of the commercial world .
Since his uncle wanted the power from him, he would just leave it all in his hands!
Why should he not do so?
He did not mind being just a nominal head, for he was very much content with the wealth, fame, and status the position would bring him .
He could enjoy exercising the right of a family head while not taking on its responsibilities and burdens; where else could he find such a great deal?
After all, given his illegitimate status, he had never dared to even hope of becoming the family head one day!
