Before Mu Zhenyang could explain, Zhou Fu appeared at the door expressionlessly. “Please hurry and pack your things up. You have half an hour to leave this place or I will ask the maids to help.” By that time, they wouldn’t have time to pack their things before they were thrown out the doors.
Bai Suqing was dumbfounded. Why would she and Mu Zhenyang have to leave within the half hour?
Mu Zhenyang’s expression was ugly. His tone wasn’t kind as he snarled, “Got it!”
Zhou Fu stood there to wait, with no intention of leaving. “Then please hurry. It is already dinner time and I have yet to call Aunt Li to prepare dinner. Please don’t hold up my work.”
“I got it!” Mu Zhenyang responded with annoyance. Translated by The Novelst
Zhou Fu expressionlessly continued, “Then please hurry. Madam asked me to keep an eye on you two in case you break anything or take anything expensive. That would not count as leaving clean.”
Bai Suqing finally grasped a hint of understanding about the situation. She widened her eyes in shock and said, “Leaving clean?!”
What was happening right now? Mu Zhenyang was going to leave this house clean? He had to be kidding, that was so wrong! That wasn’t how this was supposed to go!
Mu Zhenyang looked sincerely at Bai Suqing and held her hands. “It’s alright. I don’t care about the money – as long as you are my daughter that’s enough. I’ve had enough of this cold family. I think you feel the same way. In the future let’s live together, and no matter how hard times get, we can still live happily.”
Like hell she would! What she wanted was wealth and rank; she wanted to become a princess. Who wanted to follow an old man to suffer outside?!
Bai Suqing could hardly hold herself back from screaming. She clenched her fists and wished she could kill this man! She had put so much time and effort into him. In the end, how could he pull a reversal like this on her?!
“No!” Bai Suqing looked nervously to Mu Zhenyang. “No, Uncle! How can you be like this? Are you divorcing Aunt Ke because of me? You can’t, you musn’t! If that’s the case, I would feel uneasy the rest of my life. I would rather not become your daughter if it causes you to divorce her!
“Hurry and apologize to Aunt Ke. We can go together to apologize. How can you leave the Mu Family? This is your home!” It was impossible for Bai Suqing to let Mu Zhenyang leave like this without taking a single penny.
Mu Zhenyang looked firmly back at her. “Don’t worry. I’m not sad at all. All my feelings for that woman had faded long ago. Ke Wanqing thinks she’s all that and powerful because of her family; I’ve had enough of her! I don’t feel sad leaving at all, truly! Hurry and pack your things. We should leave now.”
Bai Suqing was so enraged she wanted to slap him.
Her only thought was that he was so disgusting, how could such a disgusting person even dare imagine suffering together with her! Why didn’t he just kill himself!
“You can’t be like this…”
“I can. I don’t care for worldly possessions as long as I have you, my daughter.”
“Believe me, I really don’t care…”
Bai Suqing was holding back her anger and the effort distorted her face.
She didn’t know when, but Ke Wanqing had appeared at the door and was listening to their conversation. Without any hesitation, she angrily ordered Zhou Fu to call for a few strong men to throw the pair out.
“Aunt Ke… Aunt Ke!” Bai Suqing widened her eyes innocently as though she didn’t understand why she was being treated so. She tried to struggle while anxiously calling out, “Aunt Ke, it’s not what you think, please listen to me, Aunt Ke!”
Mu Zhenyang was also raging inside. It was embarrassing to be dragged and thrown out of the house. “Ke Wanqing, do you think you’re still the little princess of the Ke Family? So what if you obtain the Mu Family properties? Do you think that’ll make me surrender? In your dreams!
“Qing Qing, no need to beg this sort of woman. It’s not worth it. As long as I have you it’s enough!”
Bai Suqing nearly bit her tongue off. Mu. Zhen. Yang! She definitely did not expect this person she had utilized as a weapon to turn on her!
Ke Wanqing laughed coldly. “Well, you really have the guts. I want to see if this foxy woman will follow someone as broke as you or if she’ll throw you away like trash!”
“Do you think Qing Qing is the same as you?!” Mu Zhenyang was thrown to the ground but even then he continued to rebuke her.
Ke Wanqing stood inside and had the maids lock the gate.
“We’ll see about that!” snorted Ke Wanqing disdainfully.
Seeing Ke Wanqing walking back to the house, Bai Suqing went to grab the poles of the iron gate and scream, “Aunt Ke! Aunt Ke, please don’t be like this! There’s nothing between me and Uncle! Please, at least for my mother’s sake…”
Ke Wanqing ignored her cries and entered the house. As the door shut behind her, Bai Suqing’s crying echoed off the floor.
Bai Xue? For her mother’s sake? In the end, Bai Suqing had overestimated Ke Wanqing’s kindness.
It was already dinnertime, and the sky was dark. Bai Suqing and Mu Zhenyang hadn’t taken anything with them before they were thrown out of the house and only had the clothes on their backs as the cold wind blew.
Bai Suqing had shouted for quite a while yet there was no movement from the house. Her voice slowly petered off. She felt a large pair of hands on her shoulders, Mu Zhenyang’s voice sounding out, “Qing Qing, let’s go. We can start a new life. I definitely won’t let you suffer.”
Bai Suqing almost couldn’t hold back a punch to his face. This useless old man had ruined all her plans!
She was going to debut as an artist at TMT soon. But now that Ke Wanqing hated her, who knew if she would defame her with this matter in the future? Her innocent as pure jade image would be ruined! Damn it, damn it, damn it! Translated by The Novelst
Bai Suqing had a face full of resentment under her bangs, while Mu Zhenyang was immersed in his fanciful imagination of a peaceful life. They had forgotten entirely about the request from Mayor Zhou and Hua Fang.
