“W-Why…” Bai Suqing stuttered, one hand over her throbbing face, both eyes red and looking very wronged, “What did I do wrong?”
Ke Wanqing had never been so disgusted with another person. She was so angry that her entire body trembled, “Do you think I don’t know how much Mu Zhenyang spent in G City?! I was wondering which shameless fox it was, but who would have thought it was you!”
Hearing this, Mu Zhenyang’s eyes widened. “You…” Translated by The Novelst
“Do you think I didn’t notice you opened your own account?!”
Ever since Mu Zhenyang had begun saving his own secret stash, Ke Wanqing had already known about it all.
However, someone told her she shouldn’t press the matter. Men liked to keep some money to themselves, especially someone like Mu Zhenyang who was interested in saving face. She knew him and that was why she had restrained herself from questioning him about it.
She had been betting that Mu Zhenyang wouldn’t dare have an affair outside. The truth was indeed as she thought: Mu Zhenyang saved the money and didn’t touch it for a long time, so she was rest assured. Who would have expected that when she was balancing the company’s accounts and tried to go into his account to cover the deficit, she found it completely empty!
There was more than 80 million in that account! And it had disappeared just like that? He hadn’t even recorded any expenses in G City, so where could that money have gone?
Ke Wanqing didn’t think that Mu Zhenyang would dare find a woman. That was what she had planned on asking him tonight. But who knew that Bai Suqing brought up the topic herself, reminding Ke Wanqing that Bai Suqing was also in G City during that time!
Bai Suqing was an artist at TMT but she hadn’t started working yet. TMT was no charity: why would they give her so much money?
Such a coincidence. Everything was so coincidental!
And judging by Mu Zhenyang’s attitude towards Bai Suqing – Qing Qing here and Qing Qing there, and wanting to adopt her? He wasn’t even so intimate with Mu Rulan!
Bai Suqing, hearing this, cursed in her heart. She reacted quickly by widening her eyes, tears flowing smoothly as she sobbed disbelievingly, “A-Aunt Ke… How could you say that… How could you accuse me like that… If you don’t like me you can just say so and I can go to an orphanage, I can live by myself…”
Mu Zhenyang stared angrily at Ke Wanqing. “What nonsense are you saying?! Qing Qing and I are innocent, are you crazy?!”
“You better shut your mouth! You say you’re innocent but when have you talked back to me before?! Ever since this little fox entered our house you’ve become more and more bold!”
“You…” Mu Zhenyang was so angry his face was bright red. He took a deep breath and looked at Bai Suqing. “Qing Qing, go up first. I will handle this with Aunt Ke.”
“What do you mean, go up?! This is my house, you better leave now!” Ke Wanqing screamed at Bai Suqing.
Bai Suqing nodded through her tears. “Alright, I’ll go. I won’t stay here and bring discomfort to Aunt Ke. It’s all my fault, I’m sorry, I’ll go…”
Bai Suqing covered her mouth and turned away to leave before she was pulled back by Mu Zhenyang.
“Look at what you’re doing to this child! Isn’t she your so-called best friend’s daughter? And you still accuse her like this and want to kick her out of the house; do you think you can face Bai Xue like this?!” Mu Zhenyang shouted in a rage.
At this time, Zhou Fu came out to say, “Madam, why not allow Miss Bai to go upstairs first. It’s not good for a child to meddle in adult matters and it’s not good to let an outsider see a married couple fight.”
Zhou Fu wasn’t speaking for Bai Suqing. He just didn’t wish to see these two act to the extreme and get a divorce. Their three children would definitely be affected, especially Mu Rulan, who was taking her college entrance exam the next semester.
Ke Wanqing usually only listened to Mu Rulan and Zhou Fu. Since Zhou Fu had spoken up, she didn’t want to throw her face, so she gloomily asked Bai Suqing to go upstairs.
Bai Suqing returned to her room. After some time, Mu Zhenyang walked in with a tired face. She stood up quickly from her bed and said sadly, “Uncle Mu…”
Mu Zhenyang’s expression was ugly. He felt a little guilty as he looked at Bai Suqing. “I’m sorry Qing Qing, Uncle Mu was unable to persuade your Aunt Ke to adopt you…”
“That’s alright!” Bai Suqing held Mu Zhenyang’s hands and looked sincerely into his eyes. “Don’t say sorry, Uncle Mu. I was too overconfident. I… I just wanted a father like you. I never thought it would hurt you and Aunt Ke… This is all my fault. I will pack my things and leave immediately…”
Mu Zhenyang was very touched. “Do you really want to become Uncle’s daughter?”
Bai Suqing nodded furiously.
In that instant, Mu Zhenyang felt his heart swell. His gaze turned firm as he looked at her. “Alright, wait for me. I’ll definitely find a way to make you my daughter!”
As Mu Zhenyang finished speaking, he walked out.
Bai Suqing watched the door close and smiled victoriously.
Soon, all the expensive things in her room would belong to her, and she would stay here with the identity of a Mu Family daughter rather than an outsider lodging in her Aunt’s house! She would soon become a princess of the Mu Family and hold the same status as Mu Rulan! Hahaha…
Mu Zhenyang didn’t let Bai Suqing wait for very long, his face dark as he walked back in.
Bai Suqing, seeing the look on his face, thought he had argued with Ke Wanqing again. She thought it hadn’t worked out, but unexpectedly Mu Zhenyang spoke out, “Tomorrow, I’ll bring you with me to go through the formalities of adoption.”
Bai Suqing widened her eyes in surprise. “You mean…”
“Mn, I promised to have you become my daughter no matter what. Let’s pack up now, we’re leaving immediately.”
Eh? Translated by The Novelst
The ecstasy was pumping through her before she was stunned by the next words…
