Ye Wu Chen furrowed his beautiful brows as he looked at Mu Ru Yue. With a blank expression on his handsome face and clear eyes that didn’t have the slightest impurity in them, his gaze was so pure that it made people doubt if that kind of gaze actually existed. He asked, “My wife, who is this uncle? Why did he call me a mister? What is a mister? Can it be eaten? That uncle is such an idiot. He asked me why I’m here? Of course, I’ve come to find my wife. Why will I want to come to find him? But I heard from others that this uncle is not a good person as he has a habit of exploiting people.”
Hearing those words, Mu Qing didn’t need to guess any further.
“Delinquent! Have you forgotten that you’re marrying the Ghost King? How can you have a relationship with another man?! I must immediately discipline you on the virtuousness of a woman!”
Mu Qing raised his hand to viciously slap Mu Ru Yue. But at this moment, Ye Wu Chen seemed to mindlessly give him a glance. Plop! Suddenly, Mu Qing abruptly knelt before Mu Ru Yue.
“My wife, why did that uncle kneel towards you?” Ye Wu Chen blinked his innocent eyes, as though nothing had happened.
When his gaze met with her suspicion filled eyes, his heart jumped a beat. ‘I may have overdone it. Can it be that the girl saw that?’
“My wife?” Ye Wu Chen blinked his eyes as he looked at Mu Ru Yue with an innocent and enticing gaze.
Seeing that he looked as though he really didn’t know what had happened, Mu Ru Yue withdrew her suspicious gaze. She might have been mistaken during that split second.
‘If Ye Wu Chen is really pretending, then that man’s level of deceitfulness definitely won’t be low.’
Thinking about that, she smiled at Mu Qing, who was still kneeling. “Father, please rise. You’re really torturing me like this. Oh! That’s right. The words ‘virtuousness of a woman’ should be taught to sister Ting Er instead. She was unwed, but had already given her innocence to Ye Tian Feng. Or, did that mean virtuousness instead? Moreover, wasn’t that matter also silently approved by father?”
Even though she was smiling, there was nothing that seemed to be able to make the iciness of her gaze to fade.
Cold sweat from Mu Qing’s head flowed down. He tightly clenched his fist as he climbed up. That humiliation viciously pierced his heart.
“Mu Ru Yue!” Mu Qing angrily hollered. “Immediately kneel down now!”
Seeming not to hear the hollers of Mu Qing, Mu Ru Yue’s lips curved up into a faint smile with undisguised mockery in her eyes.
“Good! Very good!” Mu Qing was so angered that he laughed instead. “Since you’re so undisciplined, I’ll expel you from the Mu family and eradicate your name from the family’s record.”
He thought that those words would frighten Mu Ru Yue and make her kneel before him, begging for forgiveness. But she didn’t. She just smiled at him. That smile made him anxious.
“Alright, that decision is great as I don’t want to continue staying in this place anyway.”
As if she didn’t see the ashened Mu Qing, Mu Ru Yue turned around with a smile, pulling Ye Wu Chen along as she left wordlessly.
Mu Qing raised his palm and slammed it against a table, making it split in half. He didn’t seem to feel any pain in his hand as he stared fixedly at Mu Ru Yue’s departing figure. With gritted teeth, he hollered, “Mu Ru Yue! You will regret doing this!”
‘Regret?’ Mu Ru Yue smiled. ‘I don’t know what regret is since the day I was born.’
“Father.” Mu Yi Xue looked dazedly at the back of Ye Wu Chen as she arrogantly said, “I fancy that man. I want to marry him.”
