Liang Zhou’s tears fell like pearls immediately. She kneeled gracefully and said, “Old Madam, I’m sorry. It’s all my fault. I’ve been regretting it for so many years; I shouldn’t have fallen in love with Mu Qing and made him selfishly leave his family for me. Mu Qing missed you very much over the years and was depressed. Seeing him like that makes my heart ache. Old Madam, please let him return. He’s your biological son after all.” After she spoke, she began to kowtow.
Ding Hong and the others immediately stepped forward to help Liang Zhou up.
However, Liang Zhou refused to get up. It was as though if Jiang Jin did not agree, she would kneel until she died.
Jiang Jin was so angry that her whole body was trembling.
Song Ning rushed forward and held Jiang Jin’s arm. She reminded her in a low voice, “Grandma, you can’t be angry!”
Jiang Jin took a deep breath and said in a trembling voice, “If you like to kneel, then kneel.” After saying that, she turned around and was about to leave.
Ding Hong hurriedly stopped her. “Sister-in-law, how can you do this? Today is the first day of the new year. It won’t look good if she kneels here like this!”
“Why don’t you agree? It’s not a big deal. Mu Qing is your child. Sister-in-law, why are you so hard-hearted? You can’t just favor your grandson! Without your son, would you have a grandson?”
Jiang Jin was so angry that her demeanor changed immediately. “I thought you all finally found your conscience and came to visit me out of kindness. I didn’t expect all of you to scheme against me. You even calculated the time and occasion. Very good! You even dare to plot against my son!”
Song Ning grew even more anxious. She looked to the left and to the right, looking for Mu Chen.
“Grandma, what happened?” At this moment, Mu Chen walked over with large strides.
Upon seeing Mu Chen, Song Ning sighed in relief inwardly. However, her relief did not last long before the anxiety returned. What if Mu Chen did something drastic? She was seething with anger; she had really underestimated Liang Zhen.
Song Ning had assumed Liang Zhou was just a vain woman who was not very intelligent. Who knew Liang Zhou was so cunning. This kind of underhanded scheme was the most difficult to solve. Whether it was Jiang Jin or Mu Chen, they were both kind people. They would be at a disadvantage faced with such people.
When Song Ning saw Jiang Jin’s trembling growing worse, she quickly put her hands on Jiang Jin’s back to steady her. “Grandma, don’t be angry! It’s not a big matter.”
Nevertheless, Song Ning knew these were just empty words.
Meanwhile, Ding Hong and the others recounted what happened to Mu Chen.
Mu Chen looked at the woman kneeling on the ground as his expression gradually turned cold.
Song Ning reached out to hold his hand and found it cold to the touch.
“What’s the big deal?” Mu Chen finally said.
Everyone was stunned by his words,
“If you want to stay, then stay. There’s no need to look as if you’ve been wronged. Who are you acting like this for? It’s the new year. If you make Grandma angry, don’t blame me for being impolite…” Mu Chen said. Following that, he reached out to hold Jiang Jin and said, “Grandma, let Ningning give you a massage. It’s the new year so you have to be happy. Don’t be angry, okay?”
Mu Chen and Song Ning supported Jiang Jin on each side.
Ding Hong quickly walked up and said ingratiatingly, “That’s right, sister-in-law. Look, Mu Chen is so sensible. Our Mu Chen has a family now. Mu Qing and his wife want to come back to see him. It’s only human nature…”
Mu Chen stopped in his tracks. “Second Madam, tell Mu Wei to leave for South Africa in two days. The branch manager there hasn’t been back in two years. Mu Wei should go there and replace him.”
Ding Hong froze immediately. “W-what?”
Mu Chen no longer paid attention to Ding Hong as he supported Jiang Jin inside.
When she regained her senses, Ding Hong hurried next to Mu Chen and said, “No, Mu Chen, what did you say? It’s the new year and you want Mu Wei to go to that sh*tty place? Mu Chen, don’t you think you’re going too far?”
Mu Chen said expressionlessly. “What’s wrong? That manager hasn’t come back for new year for two years now!”
“What does it have to do with us whether he comes back or not?” Ding Hong raised her voice, attracting everyone’s attention.
Mu Chen said lightly, “That’s right. What does it have to do with you if other people come back or not?”
Ding Hong was rendered speechless.
Mu Chen’s words were ruthless and hit the nail on its head.
Ding Hong originally wanted to see the main branch of the Mu family make a fool of themselves so she ignored all the taboos and brought Liang Zhou over. She had been extremely happy when she saw how angry Jiang Jin was.. After all, it was not easy to cause trouble for the main branch of the Mu family. In the end, Mu Qing and Liang Zhou got off unscathed and she became the scapegoat! What kind of new year was this?!
