(Her Warmth (1)

“Master, why did you give Xi Xinyi a chance? I thought she had no more value,” Li Si asked quietly.

Mu Yuchen pinched the ache that throbbed between his eyebrows. He was startled for a moment when he heard Li Si’s question. He responded with a smirk, “Why do you think I didn’t eliminate Yueying and her together? Ah Mo found out that Xi Xinyi was in contact with Mr. Wen. I tested her before, and it seems like Mr. Wen acted as a tactician for her.”

“Master, what do you mean? Why is Xi Xinyi related to Mr. Wen? Gu Qiwu?” Li Si could feel that something was not right. It was a dangerous territory to step into.

“I’m not sure if the person who blocked your Missus in the tunnel was the same Mr. Wen Xi Xinyi knew, but I’m sure that that person and the one behind the accident in City B last year was Gu Qiwu. He’s been targeting me from the very beginning, and he dragged your Missus into this.”

“What does he want?” Li Si frowned.

Mu Yuchen’s expression was calm while his eyes looked cold. “My gut feeling tells me that it’s not just about me. Gu Qiwu is playing a grand game of chess, and I’m probably just one of the pieces on his chessboard.” Mu Yuchen did not continue as he turned and looked outside the window.

He did not tell Li Si that all of these probably started twenty years ago.

Amidst the silence, his phone started ringing. It was a call from Ah Bao in City B.

“Master, I’ve gotten Gu Qiwu and Ms. Lingshi’s DNA samples. I separated them into several packages before delivering them to a few well-known hospitals overseas anonymously. I’m sure we’ll get the results back very soon.” Ah Bao’s voice reached him.

Mu Yuchen’s expression was still strained as before, and the worries in his eyes deepened. Did he actually already have an idea?

“Alright, stay in City B and keep an eye on them.”

“Yes, Master! By the way, Gu Qiwu left City B yesterday. He went to France.”


Mu Yuchen’s expression darkened as he replied, “Just ignore him. Keep an eye on Doris.”


Their conversation ended swiftly. Mu Yuchen locked his phone and thought to himself. Then, he said, “Head over to the court of law.”

The court of law?

Li Si was startled. “Master, are you meeting Chief Zhuang? Today is the weekend.”

“It’s fine. She should be there today.”

Several days ago, Zhuang Shurong mentioned that she was going somewhere for external learning, so she would probably spend her weekend in the office catching up on work.

An hour later, at the City Z XX court, inside the Deputy Chief’s quiet and clean office, Zhuang Shurong was sitting before her table and working through some documents when her secretary came knocking on her door.

“Come in!” Zhuang Shurong frowned as her train of thought was disrupted.

“Chief Zhuang, Chairman Mu of Glory World is here.”

Zhuang Shurong raised her head when she heard her secretary. “Ah Chen? Let him in!”

Mu Yuchen rarely came to visit Zhuang Shurong. Their family was so low profile that not many people knew about the relationship between Mu Yuchen and Zhuang Shurong, including her relatively new secretary.

Zhuang Shurong put down her documents, she took off her glasses as well before standing up. “Why are you here? How’s Xiaye and Xiao Cheng? I’ve been busy and didn’t have time to visit them.”

Zhuang Shurong had her secretary prepare some tea as she looked at Mu Yuchen in concern. Her usual strict expression was now tinted with a layer of gentleness.

“They are fine. I’ll bring them home next week. Can’t you work from home during the weekend? Both you and Father are workaholics.” Although Mu Yuchen was concerned, his tone sounded distant.

Zhuang Shurong felt a little hurt, but she still put on a smile. “I had to go somewhere for a few days. Your father is busy with another project. Is there something that you need?”

“Nothing much. I just wanted to find something out from you.”

Mu Yuchen nodded to the secretary that served him the tea before looking at Zhuang Shurong. “Xiaye told me you mentioned something about Lingtian when he was still a child. I remembered something, so I wanted to talk to you about it.”


Zhuang Shurong was visibly depressed when the name was mentioned. Mixed emotions rose in her eyes.

She hesitated for a moment before saying, “Ah Chen, what’s there to talk about? We don’t blame you for what happened to Lingtian. You don’t have to bear this burden. You did nothing wrong.”

Mu Yuchen stayed silent for a moment while he sipped some tea. “What do you think of Lingtian? I remember you were pretty close to him.”

Zhuang Shurong felt guilty when she mentioned this. She looked at Mu Yuchen and sighed. “Ah Tian… He’s a smart child, but his personality is very much like your aunt’s, quite indecisive. I know the two of you don’t get along. You guys always have a conflict with each other although you two are siblings. I sided with him most of the time when there was a fight. Your father and I feel sorry for you. We’re not good parents, but your aunt…”

“It’s alright. I’m not here to talk about those. Father and you are great. There’s nothing to be sorry about. Lingtian’s core values are fundamentally different from mine. I know he’s been having some opinions about me, but I’m not sure what I did wrong.”

“It’s not your fault, Ah Chen. Do you remember you brought a Tibetan Mastiff back from Grandmother’s place?” Zhuang Shurong asked.

Mu Yuchen nodded. “Of course. I won it from a bet with Grandpa. Lingtian and Lingshi liked it very much as well. It gave us a lot of happy memories together.
