Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Zhao Shunchang heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that the crowd was leaving. He covered his face and turned his head around, only to see his wife in an unhinged mood.
Sun Fengzi had slapped him mercilessly because she was in a fit of rage just now. As a result, his cheek had swelled more than Sun Fengzi. The pain was so unbearable that he felt the pain whenever he slightly moved his lips.
However, the certain man, who was always suppressed by his wife, dared not put the blame on the main culprit who was the cause of all this. Seeing that his wife’s expression was like a monster filled with a murderous intent, he only reminded her warily, “Fengzi, they have already left.”
The moment Sun Fengzi turned her head around, her resentful gaze met Zhao Shunchang. Her bone-chilling frightening look terrified Zhao Shunchang that he had to draw in a deep breath and take a few steps back.
Watching him in his current state, Sun Fengzi’s anger did not subside. Instead, the hint of mockery grew increasingly prominent in her eyes.
Sun Fengzi snickered and blurted out at Zhao Shunchang, “Useless idiot!” After that, not taking note of how her husband had reacted, she walked in the direction where Zhao Youlin and the rest of her group had left in her high heels.
Zhao Shunchang stood rooted on the spot. He touched his swollen and reddened cheek. He unwittingly clenched his other hand that was dangling by his side. A trace of stoicism flashed across his eyes. However, in the end, he did not do anything. He looked down and followed behind her.
Sun Fengzi’s cheek had swollen up and turned red. Yet, she still cast another glance at Han Yichen. She wanted to identify any hints of lies from him.
Unfortunately, it had gone against her will. The more Sun Fengzi looked at Han Yichen, the more she found that Han Yichen’s features were very similar to Zhao Shunrong. The more she stared at him, the more terrified and furious she got.
Even so, she could not do anything about it. Sun Fengzi was not over yet. Just then, she discovered something else after she walked into the living hall with Zhao Youlin and the rest of her group.
“Yifei!” Sun Fengzi stared incredulously at Zhao Yifei who had already broken out with cold sweat and was shivering on the floor.
It took her some time before she returned to her senses and rushed over to Zhao Yifei’s side. She held his shoulders. Before she had asked him anything, she heard a sharp cry of pain, “Ah! It’s very painful. Darn you! Are you going to make me die of pain?! Let go of me now!”
The area which Sun Fengzi was holding was coincidentally the area where Zhao Yifei’s hand had been dislocated. It was so painful that Zhao Yifei kept trembling. He reflexively waved his other hand at Sun Fengzi.
Sun Fengzi was shocked upon hearing her son’s painful scream. She reflexively took a few steps back but her hand still got struck by Zhao Yifei.
She felt searing pain on the back of her hand. However, Sun Fengzi no longer cared much less about others. She was pacing back and forth around Zhao Yifei anxiously. She dared not touch him anymore.
“Yifei, how are you? Your complexion doesn’t look good. Which part of you are in pain? Which part have you injured yourself? Tell me! I’m eager to know this!” Sun Fengzi stared at Zhao Yifei’s shoulders. The next moment, she looked down and realised that one of Zhao Yifei’s hands was dangling by his side lifelessly as if it was boneless.
Sun Fengzi shrieked once again. “Yifei, your hand! What happened to your hand?! Why has it become like this?! Who did this to you? Who caused you to be in such a state?”
It would have been better had Sun Fengzi not asked him. The moment she did, Zhao Yifei’s expression turned grave. He snorted weakly, “Who else? Who else could it be who dares to strike me like this in this banquet?”
“Someone struck you?” Sun Fengzi’s expression changed slightly. She turned her head around and her eyes searched for Zhao Youlin.
Zhao Youlin did not hide herself from them. Upon hearing the mother-son pair’s conversations, she took the initiative and walked forward. She sneered, “That’s right. I’m the one who struck him. Aunt, are you going to settle the account with me?”
Sun Fengzi’s expression turned black. She turned around and was about to raise her hand at Zhao Youlin. Just then, she saw a figure rise behind Zhao Youlin and take her into his arms. Sun Fengzi immediately turned stiff.
Mu Tingfeng held Joy with one of his hands and wrapped Zhao Youlin’s waist with the other hand with a strong sense of possessiveness. He raised one of his eyebrows and said, “Madam, are you going to cause trouble to my future bride?”
Right after Mu Tingfeng spoke, not only was Sun Fengzi, but the onlookers, who had been watching the sight, were also struck dumb.
Regarding Mu Tingfeng and Zhao Youlin’s remarriage, they had only mentioned it twice. They had mentioned it once to Sun Fengzi and Zhao Shunchang and the second time was when they were at Su Qing’s son’s full moon banquet.
There was some deviation in the social network between the Song family and the Zhao family. Besides, Mu Tingfeng had only mentioned it once. As time passed, some of them no longer remembered this incident.
Now that Mu Tingfeng brought up the issue once again, many people on the spot recovered their senses and recalled this incident.
So, did the eldest young master of the Mu family truly want to remarry the eldest lady of the Zhao family?
Looking at Sun Fengzi’s puzzled and surprised look, Zhao Youlin knew that she had not believed a word she said when they were in the office back then. That was why she had looked so shocked when she heard the same words from Mu Tingfeng.
The reason she had asked Mu Tingfeng to come over was because she wanted to confirm their relationship before the public. As such, without hesitation, Zhao Youlin turned her head around and smiled faintly at Sun Fengzi as she said, “Aunt, I’m going to remarry Mu Tingfeng. Soon, we’re husband and wife again. Therefore, is there anything wrong when Tingfeng said that I am his future bride?”
This was Mu Tingfeng’s first time hearing Zhao Youlin call him without his surname. More so, she called him by this name before so many people. She did not feel uneasy letting everyone know how intimate and close they were.
This had instantly lifted his mood. He subconsciously clenched his hand as he wrapped around Zhao Youlin’s waist.
Of course Zhao Youlin felt his increased force around her waist. She furrowed her eyebrows and looked up at Mu Tingfeng in puzzlement, only to meet his gaze that was filled with pure bliss.
Zhao Youlin was stunned. She thought over it before she understood the reason Mu Tingfeng was so happy. For a moment, she did not know if she should laugh or cry.
Who would have thought that the president of Mu Feng Group would be so happy by just changing the way she had addressed him? When did this guy be so easily content? Or, was it because she was the one who had called him this way?
Zhao Youlin was taken aback by her own thoughts. Her face unwittingly turned red, and she quickly avoided Mu Tingfeng’s eyes. She faked a cough to cover up her embarrassment.
Well. Today was an exception. There would be no next time!
They were flaunting their affections and staring into each other intimately as if no one was around them. As such, the onlookers were blinded upon watching their intimacy. Before this, they had a reserved attitude toward their relationship. Upon seeing this, their expressions changed and they blinked their eyes. They had to re-evaluate Zhao Youlin’s status in Mu Tingfeng’s heart.
Mu Tingfeng and Zhao Youlin were flirting with each other through their gazes. Seeing the couple being so intimate with each other as if no one was watching them, Sun Fengzi’s expression kept changing. Her cheek grew more swollen and red. It was a frightening sight to behold..
