(Passed Away (1)

Mu Yuchen was already back home when she arrived. He frowned and gave her an earful before preparing the bath water for her.

After they switched the lights off, the two of them lay down on the bed. Mu Yuchen was suddenly reminded about something and he looked at Xi Xiaye. After some hesitation, he said, “Xiaye, I have something to tell you.”

“Mmm? What’s up?” Xi Xiaye opened her eyes that were bright like glittering stars.

“I just heard that Father has resigned,” Mu Yuchen said.


“You mean he quit his position as Mayor?”

Xi Xiaye quickly sat up in shock and opened her eyes wide as she stared at him blankly.

Mu Yuchen nodded. “This is the second time. Father told me that he was rejected the first time, but this time…”

“Why did he do that?” Xi Xiaye was at a loss. While she did not understand what was going on with Xi Mushan much, she knew that citizens had positive reactions towards him being the Mayor, and rumors said he would be promoted very soon. It was his prime time right now, so why would he quit?

“Why? You know the answer yourself,” Mu Yuchen sighed, covering himself with the blanket and went to sleep. Xi Xiaye was still looking at him blankly. After some time, she mumbled, “You mean he did this for Mother?”

“He must’ve been struggling all these years. What would you have done if you were in his shoes?”

Xi Xiaye closed her eyes and gave it a long thought. In the end, she shook her head. “I don’t know…”

“I think he wanted to escape, or maybe he just wants a fresh start. However, it seems pretty difficult on Mother’s end.”

He used one arm as a pillow for his head while his other hand played with her long hair.

“A fresh start? Father and Yue Lingsi are still married. Moreover, there’s Xi Xinyi between them. How can he get a fresh start now?”

“If I’m not mistaken, Father will be able to divorce Yue Lingsi these few days. He quit his career. Apart from for Mother’s sake, it’s also to avoid being threatened again. From what I know, they should have some kind of secret against Father. There’s no way else he would’ve endured it through all these years. He’s not the kind of person who lusts for power,” Mu Yuchen analyzed, his eyes turning cold.

“These few days? You guys found evidence of Yue Lingsi cheating and gave it to Father?” Xi Xiaye’s eyes brightened up as she realized what must have happened!

A wry smile appeared on the man’s face. “Can’t you let me say it to satisfy my manly pride?”

Xi Xiaye rolled her eyes at him. She did not reply and asked instead, “What secret do they have against Father? If that’s the case, can Father still divorce Yue Lingsi successfully?”

“That depends on him, but I have faith in him.”

“How do you know he can? Even I have no faith in him… Of course, it’d be best if he can divorce Yue Lingsi. I just asked Mother in the hospital if she still loves him. She closed her eyes and didn’t give me a reply, but I saw the tears in the corner of her eyes… So, I think she still misses Father, even when he…”

She lowered her head and went silent. Suddenly, she turned around and looked at him while looking a little lost. “We aren’t going to end up like them, right?”

He was helpless against her words. He quickly grabbed her over as his sensual voice reached her ears. “Stop overthinking!”

“If you happen to do that, I’ll never forgive you!”

“Missus, Mr. Mu only belongs to you.”

“That’s more like it!”

In the next two days, they were busy preparing before the holidays. Work had piled up in the office. Fortunately, Vice President Zhang Lan was handling the South River project now. She would not have been able to handle it at the moment.

Mu Yuchen transferred two projects under her to other managers, so she was mainly taking care of the handover. They would need to start preparing for their wedding soon, but they could not just leave their work, hence the handover work must be done now.

Working hours had ended, and most employees had left, so the whole place was quiet.

Inside Xi Xiaye’s office, Xi Xiaye took the documents from Xiao Mei. “You can go back now. Happy holidays!”

“Alright, happy holidays too, Director Xi! Please head back earlier!” Xiao Mei left with a smile. When she was at the door, she almost bumped into Mu Yuchen!

“Good evening, Chairman Mu!”

Mu Yuchen nodded slightly before walking past.

“Didn’t you go for inspection in Car City? You’re back so soon!” Xi Xiaye kept the documents inside her briefcase before she looked at him and asked.

“Ah Mo drove the car back. I have a document to get, so I just came over here to take a look, knowing you’d still be here.”

Mu Yuchen handed a document to her, which she slipped into her briefcase as well. “Good timing. Let’s visit Mother at the hospital. The doctor just called me and said they gave her a full body checkup today. She can be discharged in two days.”

“Mmm, let’s go.”

Mu Yuchen grabbed her briefcase and put his arm over her shoulders when they walked out.

As they arrived at the hospital, the sky turned dark. The private nurse, Sis Fu, was there. Shen Wenna just had dinner and Sis Fu updated them that Xi Mushan had not been here for the past two days. He seemed to be busy with something.

Inside the room, Xi Xiaye just helped Shen Wenna wash up when Li Si came knocking on the door. He looked at Mu Yuchen with a grim expression. “Master!”

Mu Yuchen helped Shen Wenna lie down before turning over to look at Li Si. He frowned when he noticed something not right with Li Si’s expression, so he told Xi Xiaye, “Stay here with Mother for a while. I’ll go take a look outside.”

Xi Xiaye nodded. “Okay.”

Mu Yuchen vanished from the room. Only Xi Xiaye and Shen Wenna were left, and it was quiet in there.

Xi Xiaye covered Shen Wenna with a blanket as she said softly, “Mother, the doctor said your condition is now stable and you can be discharged the day after tomorrow. I’ve discussed with Mu Yuchen and we decided to have you stay over at Maple Residence. It’s easier for us to take care of you.”
