Mu Yuchen was quiet, his eyes indicating his concern when he looked at Xi Mushan.
Xi Mushan’s expression darkened as he sighed, “That’s how your mother is. I’m used to it already, but I owe the two of them so much that I don’t know how I can ever make amends.”
“What is Father planning to do? Mother is going to be discharged in a few days. With her current condition…”
Mu Yuchen’s question put Xi Mushan on the spot!
What could he do?
Shen Wenna would surely head back to the Shen Residence after she was discharged. What about him?
Could he still go back now?
With all the messy relationships around him now, how could he protect her? What was the “forever” he talked about!?
Was he making empty promises again?
Xi Mushan clenched his fists as his eyes started to water.
“Since things have come down to this, I suppose you aren’t afraid to lose anything else, are you? You should pursue what feels the most important to you. You might lose it the next moment.”
Mu Yuchen looked at him calmly and said, “I know that you’re afraid to lose. You’re afraid that Mother will reject you, so you’re hesitant. I don’t want to add anything on. I just want to let you know that Xiaye and I will always treat you as our father. Be it for you or Mother, we’ll always be here.”
Xi Mushan was stunned and he stared at Mu Yuchen in shock. After a while, he mumbled, “What you just said… Did Xiaye tell you that she’s willing to forgive me?”
Mu Yuchen smiled as he looked down at Xi Mushan’s bandaged hand. “I think that she never really blamed you. What she always longed for is the love and care from you both. She can even forgive someone like Xi Xinyi, so why can’t she forgive the man who gave life to her?”
Hope sparked in his eyes as he spoke and he looked at Xi Mushan genuinely. “Father, I hope you can make up for the lack of paternal love in the past twenty years. I beg you to be fair to her, to be fair to Mother, and to be fair to yourself. At your age, you should really fight for what you really want.”
A bitter taste rushed towards Xi Mushan’s throat as he felt a pain in his chest and he could not keep a calm expression like earlier anymore. His expression seemed a little cold and lonely.
“Father, be strong. Xiaye and I will help you however we can. It might be a rough path but as long as you don’t give up, I’m sure things will work out!”
As Mu Yuchen saw the wavering in Xi Mushan’s eyes, he took a deep breath and handed him the stuff in his hands. “I think you’ll really appreciate these right now.”
Xi Mushan glanced at Mu Yuchen before taking it from him. He opened it and flipped through the documents inside.
Suddenly, his expression turned from being cold and lonely to becoming unbelievably surprised!
He looked at Mu Yuchen in bewilderment. “These… These… How did you get them?”
He was aware that Yue Lingsi was cheating on him, so he tried to find out more but there was no result.
He never touched her ever since that night. Instead, he put all his focus onto his political career. Moreover, he did not find any woman more attractive than Shen Wenna. He felt that he could only be deemed a complete man when he was with Shen Wenna.
That was also why he missed and loved her even until now.
Throughout his political career, many women tried to lay him honey traps, but no matter how seductive they were, he just could not forget about Shen Wenna.
He then realized that he lost himself to her when he signed his name on the divorce contract. He had always been there, so how could he not go back to her to look for himself?
“I just happened to find out. It must be God’s will.” Mu Yuchen smiled.
He had asked Li Si to investigate Yue Lingsi but had only gotten some trivial information. They would probably have missed this piece of important information if Ah Mo and Ah Bao had not been alert enough!
Li Si had mentioned before that lonely people were prone to making mistakes. Not everyone could go through the loneliness. At least, Yue Lingsi did not feel like she could. Shen Wenna and Xi Mushan were each other’s first love, so…
Mu Yuchen thought Li Si was just talking nonsense, yet now…
“With these, you can start your negotiations with Yue Lingsi. I know you’re being pressured by the Yue family. I will…”
“It’s alright, Ah Chen. Thank you! I think these are enough! I’ve handed in my resignation letter. Now that I’ve spent half of my life in the political field, it’s enough. I just want to spend the rest of my time with the two of them.”
Xi Mushan smiled, seeming much more relaxed now. “Don’t tell them about this and wait until I’m done settling everything. I’ll head back for now. Please take care of your mother!”
Xi Mushan kept the documents and went into his car, driving away swiftly.
Mu Yuchen was caught off-guard.
He should be at the peak of his career now. Furthermore, his achievements were great and many people loved him. If he stayed for another year or two, he would rise even higher!
Even Mu Tangchuan was impressed.
Did he not care now?
Xi Mushan’s words shocked Mu Yuchen. He never expected such action from him!
However, things might be better like this. If Xi Mushan could take care of Shen Wenna personally under such circumstances, maybe they could go back to how they were!
Mu Yuchen was starting to look forward to it.
In contrast to the peace on Mu Yuchen’s end, a storm was brewing in Shen Wenna’s room!
“How dare they!? How dare they!? Do they think us Shen family can be easily bullied? Ridiculous!”
Mu Yuchen heard Shen Yue’s furious voice roaring from inside as he arrived at the door.
