Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Fortunately, the old man’s conscience was not obliterated yet. Before Mu Tingfeng died of anxiousness, in a reluctant manner, he finally cleared his throat and announced loudly, “Quiet, everybody. Quiet. I have another important matter that I would like to announce here.”
Once again, the whispering crowd quieted down. And one by one, they looked over to the old master.
The old master schooled his face before he said in a serious and deep voice, “Today, in addition to the announcement of the marriage of my grandson and Miss An, there is another happy event I’d like to announce. That is, my granddaughter Zhao Youlin and Mu Tingfeng, the president of Mu Feng Group, are going to remarry two weeks later, which is on the same day as my grandson and Miss An’s wedding. We will have a double wedding.”
Before the old master’s voice died away, the entire hall had fallen into dead silence. A somber atmosphere was spreading unstoppably in the hall. It was so quiet that one could even hear the sound of a needle falling to the floor.
It took the crowd a long time before they collected themselves and started discussing it.
Mu Tingfeng’s brows furrowed, as he was obviously unsatisfied with the crowd’s reaction. Mu Tingfeng held Joy with one hand and pulled Zhao Youlin with the other. He dragged her directly to the front. Without any respect for elders, he squeezed the old master to the side and, in a deep voice, repeated those words the old master had said just now to the crowd. “In two weeks’ time, Youlin and I will hold a wedding together with the Young Master Yichen and Miss An. The invitation will be sent to you all later, so please do us the honor of attending our weddings by then.”
Mu Tingfeng’s words were cold and contained some implicit threats. The crowd, who were still whispering among themselves a second ago, were all silenced at once. Any doubts they had on the relationship between Zhao Youlin and Mu Tingfeng completely dissipated.
Many of them even realized that they had not behaved themselves well. In order to remedy the situation, they quickly came forward and said, “President Mu, Ms. Youlin, congratulations for getting back together.”
“President Mu, Ms. Youlin, you really are a perfect match.”
“President Mu, you and Ms. Youlin are tying the knot, while Young Master Yichen and Miss An are going to be united in marriage as well. This is really a quadruple blessing for the Zhao family. Congratulations are in order.”
“That is right. The old master’s two great concerns in his mind have been resolved all at once. He is so blessed. Please send the invitation to our residence. We will definitely be there to give the couples our blessings.”
There was nothing in this world that could be greater than the benefits brought by the unity of blood. That was why the high society would attach such importance to business marriages of convenience or political marriages of convenience, because the bonds established through this way were the strongest and the most profitable.
Han Yichen was the president of Sheng Huang Group, but he had the Zhao family’s blood running in his veins. Therefore, Sheng Huang Group and Zhao Enterprise had united, and now they were combined with the Mu family.
It did not matter why Mu Tingfeng wanted to marry Zhao Youlin. Zhao Youlin was the mother of Mu Tingfeng’s son, after all. Since Mu Tingfeng had decided to remarry Zhao Youlin, it meant that he had acknowledged Zhao Youlin, and it meant that the Mu family, which was represented by him, had completely stood on the Zhao family’s side.
It was such a strong lineup. One had to say, it was really intimidating…
Zhao Youlin was standing beside Mu Tingfeng, receiving her well-deserved compliments from the crowd. Then, she suddenly turned around and looked at Xie Yuqing, who had little reaction, and asked wickedly, “Why aren’t you saying anything, Miss Xie? Is it possible that you also think that Tingfeng and I have nothing in common and I am not good enough for him?”
Right after Zhao Youlin finished speaking, those people who were gathering around Mu Tingfeng could keenly feel that the temperature in the air had abruptly dropped by several degrees.
Xie Yuqing did not expect that Zhao Youlin would suddenly challenge her, so she was caught off guard for a moment. By the time she collected herself, Mu Tingfeng had swept over a gloomy glare at her.
Xie Yuqing could feel a cold shiver run down her neck. She said stiffly, “You must be joking, Miss Zhao. You are the eldest young lady of the Zhao family and the general manager of the Zhao Enterprise. You and President Mu are a match made in heaven, how can you not be good enough for him?”
Zhao Youlin did not give much of a reaction as she listened to Xie Yuqing lauding her. She replied in a nonchalant manner, “I am so flattered to receive such a compliment from you, Miss Xie.”
As a result, Xie Yuqing could feel that the glare that was cast on her from Mu Tingfeng had become even colder. She was crying internally, what did she say wrong again? Why had President Mu’s glare on her become even more frightening?
What Xie Yuqing did not know was that President Mu, who had found out everything about Zhao Youlin’s previous life, understood better than anyone else that the soul in Ms. Youlin’s body here was just an ordinary citizen like An Yue before she took over this body.
Xie Yuqing’s compliments to Zhao Youlin made President Mu realize that Xie Yuqing’s mockery against An Yue earlier had been against Zhao Youlin as well. So, if he still treated Xie Yuqing with good manners now, that would be a really strange thing!
Zhao Youming was standing alone behind the crowd. He was looking at Zhao Youlin, Mu Tingfeng, Han Yichen, An Yue, Duan Yarong, Zhao Shunrong and the old master who were surrounded by the crowd not far away and receiving wishes from them.
That group of people easily got the attention of everyone in the whole banquet. Each of them was like a shining diamond, attracting others to approach them and respect them.
Meanwhile, he, who had the same blood as them running in his veins, felt as if he was thousands of miles away from them, even though he was just a few steps away. He was so close, yet so far away. Heaven and hell were cut off by an invisible barrier.
They were in heaven, and he was… in hell!
Joy curiously lay upon Mu Tingfeng’s shoulders, looking at those strangers that came and went. From time to time, he could even hear them praising him, but he did not even realize what had just happened.
After finally getting rid of those people, Zhao Youlin heaved a sigh in relief and muttered in a low voice, “We already have to deal with a lot of people now. And there will be more people at the wedding. It’s just a remarriage, why do we have to hold another wedding? What a nuisance.”
They would hold a wedding again for their remarriage, and the form of the wedding ceremony must be in exact accordance with how other people held their wedding. This was proposed by Mu Tingfeng, who was very persistent about this.
Mu Tingfeng listened to Zhao Youlin’s complaints. The corners of his lips hooked up slightly. He replied without feeling shy, “Because I want to give you a complete wedding. A wedding that belongs only to you and me.”
A wedding that belonged to the current Mu Tingfeng and current Zhao Youlin. He wanted to see this woman in front of him put on a wedding dress for him. He wanted to walk into the chapel, hand in hand with her, and make their lifelong vows that belonged only to them in front of God. He wanted to create a beautiful memory that belonged only to them.
Zhao Youlin was stunned. She raised her head and looked into Mu Tingfeng’s deep eyes. She suddenly seemed to understand something. She lowered her head and cursed “fool” in a low voice, but she could not help having the corners of her mouth turn up, giving away what she really felt at the moment.
Mu Tingfeng did not speak. With one hand, he pulled her closer into his arms and tightened his hug. He softly responded, “Yes, we’re both fools..”
