(Incited Conflict (2)

The warm sun was high up in the sky as its gentle rays shrouded the quiet Maple Residence in its holy glory. The cold ground was covered with long shadows.

At noon, Mu Yuchen made lunch after he washed up. Xi Xiaye had requested for sliced chicken porridge for lunch. As he was cooking the porridge slowly, he took some time to clean up the forbidden places: the bedroom and the study room.

Inside the bedroom, Mu Yuchen dragged open the thick curtains and pushed the glass windows open. Glittering sunlight streamed into the room as a strong wind breezed through. Then, there were some movements from under the blanket on the huge, comfortable bed.

Xi Xiaye sat up with her messy hair, rubbing her eyes and looking over to where the noises came from. She saw Mr. Mu watering the plants. “What time is it now? Why are you up so early?” Her voice sounded a little hoarse.

Mr. Mu turned around when he heard her voice. Seeing that she was sitting inside the blanket, his expression softened. “You’re up? It’s not early now. It’s almost 11 a.m. Go and wash up and then we can eat.”

He put the glass of water in his hand away as he grabbed the remote control and switched on the music player in the room. Soothing music started to play. It was a classic, “My Heart Will Go On”.

Xi Xiaye was in a jovial mood when she heard the song. She got out of bed and brushed her own hair, humming along to the tune as she walked towards the wardrobe. She then went into the bathroom after grabbing an outfit.

Mu Yuchen had already cleaned the bedroom when she came out of the bathroom. He had even tidied up her messy wardrobe.

“Let’s head out earlier later. I want to fix my hair. Are you coming with me?” Xi Xiaye looked at her long hair in front of the dressing table while talking to him as he adjusted his tie.

She went over to him and took the tie, helping him to put it on. Although she was not the best person to do it, it was alright.

“Mmm, cut it shorter. It’s difficult for you to dry your hair after you’ve showered at night.” He ran his fingers through her hair as he looked downward, enjoying the unique scent on her.

She looked up and asked him, “Don’t you like me this way? It won’t look nice anymore if I cut it short.”

“You look good in anything.” He smiled.

“Really?” She had a big smile on her face and her eyes could not help but glitter. Women tended to like it when their men complimented them, and Xi Xiaye was no exception.

He just smiled and looked at her happy face. He was feeling her joy too. In response, he lowered his head and kissed her.

She just let him do whatever he wanted.

With his strong self-restraint, he suppressed the wild instincts inside him and just stopped at just a kiss.

Suddenly, he felt that he was losing himself pretty quickly. He actually could not control his thoughts for a moment!

He scolded himself on the inside. Where did his discipline go?

After lunch, they made some tea and played chess together. Li Si and the bodyguards only arrived after they finished two games, so they left at around 1 p.m. It was pretty far away and it was about the right time to arrive after she had fixed her hair.

When they were arriving at West Park, Xi Xiaye called Xi Mushan who was on his way downstairs. Deng Wenwen, Xi Xinyi, Han Yifeng and his family were in the living room discussing Han Yifeng and Xi Xinyi’s wedding.

Xi Xinyi was smiling while Han Yifeng was just drinking his tea in silence. His expression seemed pretty bleak.

When they heard the sound of footsteps on the staircase, they turned around. “Father!” Xi Xinyi called out to him. Xi Mushan glanced at her as he picked up the phone. “Hello?”

“It’s me, Father. We’ll be there in 10 minutes. You’re home, aren’t you?” Xi Xiaye’s voice reached him.

“I’m here. I’ll wait for you at the entrance.”

“Alright then.”

Xi Xiaye hung up as Xi Mushen put his phone away and spoke to Xi Xinyi downstairs, “Your sister and brother-in-law are arriving. Tidy the place up.” He then went downstairs and walked outside.

However, Xi Mushan’s words shocked them! They were all stunned!

Sister and brother-in-law?

The Han family were dumbfounded because they still did not know Xi Xiaye was already married. Deng Wenwen and Xi Xinyi were shocked because they knew the person that married Xi Xiaye was Mu Yuchen!

Even the quiet Han Yifeng straightened his posture all of a sudden.

“What does he mean? Lingsi, is Xiaye really married? When did this happen? What brother-in-law?”

Huang Ziyao looked at Yue Lingshi in doubt. She had never heard anything about Xi Xiaye’s marriage. What was happening now?

She suddenly remembered some time ago, she had met Xi Xiaye in the New Era Plaza when she was with Huang Shanshan.

Han Yu looked at Yue Lingsi and Xi Xinyi. Finally, his eyes stopped at the aloof Han Yifeng. After a while, he asked, “What happened?”

Deng Wenwen and Yue Lingshi traded glances. They both did not look very comfortable. Deng Wenwen’s eyes were filled with mixed emotions, and it was hard to tell what she was thinking about.

Xi Xinyi’s expression turned pale as she just sat there, stunned. Her gaze was locked onto Han Yifeng beside her.

She never expected Xi Xiaye to bring Mu Yuchen back to West Park!

How could this be!?

Yue Lingsi could not hide the anger in her eyes, which were burning with jealousy, especially when she thought about how arrogant Xi Xiaye had been back at the cafè and how she had embarrassed her right in front of Shen Wenna!

Deng Wenwen suppressed the wild emotions running inside her as she spoke, “It’s Xi Xiaye and Mu Yuchen. They were married at the end of last year. We didn’t tell you guys about it because we were busy preparing for Yifeng and Xinyi, so…”
