Chu Mo naturally did not stop Old Madam Chu.
He lowered his head and replied, “I’ll get the butler to make arrangements for the manor on the mountain.”
Old Madam Chu replied with an “okay” before leaving the living room with Sun Jing.
Chu Mo stood on the spot and gave a few instructions to the butler who had already returned.
The butler received his order and went to prepare for Old Madam Chu’s trip.
The Chu family had a piece of land on the West Mountain. The mountain was lush with plants and looked like a natural oxygen bar.
Old Madam Chu had ordered someone to build a manor on the mountain. It was three to four times the size of the old manor.
When Old Madam Chu had nothing to do, she would go up to the mountain for some peace and quiet.
Because of this, the manor on the mountain had always been taken care of meticulously.
After Old Madam Chu left, Chu Mo turned his head to look in Ye Jiu’s direction again. He realized that she was still standing at the same spot as if she was waiting for him intentionally.
Chu Mo walked up the stairs and arrived at Ye Jiu’s room.
“I…” Ye Jiu was the first to speak.
Although she knew that there was no point in explaining, she still wanted him to know that she did not go to the parasol tree yesterday.
Although she had done so before, she would definitely not continue doing so…
Chu Mo interrupted Ye Jiu, “I know…”
Hearing Chu Mo’s words, Ye Jiu could not help but feel sad.
She had always hurt him, but yet, he had always been protecting her…
“You don’t have to worry about what happened today.” Chu Mo seemed to be comforting Ye Jiu, “You should rest well. You have to prepare for the banquet in a few days.”
Hearing Chu Mo’s words, Ye Jiu suddenly remembered that the company’s 40th Anniversary banquet was in a few days.
In her previous life, a pregnant woman had ran to the party and grabbed Chu Mo to ask him to acknowledge her and their baby who was about to be born.
Ye Jiu naturally looked like a victim.
Her pitiful and aggrieved look was uploaded to major platforms by dozens of television stations.
In an instant, Chu Mo became the scumbag that everyone hated.
And Ye Jiu was the pitiful woman who was cheated on and compromised to protect the Chu family’s reputation.
It was also at that cocktail party that Old Madam Chu was so angry that she had a stroke. She stayed in the hospital for nearly half a year before she finally passed away.
A hint of pain flashed across Ye Jiu’s face.
Chu Mo looked at her face and a hint of depression flashed across his eyes.
He did not know what she was going to do at the cocktail party…
Or perhaps, she had thought of a way to hurt him…
Seeing Chu Mo’s frown, Ye Jiu subconsciously reached out to help him smooth it out.
Ye Jiu was still in a daze when she saw Chu Mo reaching out and grabbing her tightly.
Ye Jiu cried out in pain and that immediately brought Chu Mo back to his senses.
As Chu Mo held Ye Jiu’s hand, the strength in his hand weakened slightly.
The two of them looked at each other silently.
Until a light cough sounded beside the two of them.
Chu Mo suddenly withdrew his hand.
Ye Jiu also lowered her head subconsciously.
Xie Xin stood at the side and looked at the two of them as if they were caught in bed together. He thought it was a little funny.
“President, it’s time to set off! There’s still a meeting this morning…” Xie Xin did his duty as Chu Mo’s assistant.
Chu Mo turned to glare at Xie Xin and said to Ye Jiu, “Have a good rest…”
Ye Jiu nodded and did not say anything else.
It was not until Chu Mo and Xie Xin left that Ye Jiu raised her head and secretly looked in the direction of the door.
She touched her face, which was slightly hot. She had never felt this way before.
The corner of her mouth lifted slightly, and there seemed to be a trace of warmth in her hands.
After closing the door, Ye Jiu walked to the wardrobe in the room and looked at the clothes that Chu Mo had prepared for her.
Chu Mo bought all these clothes according to her preferences.
In fact, she liked every single one of them…
However, at that time, she only felt disgusted when she saw these clothes!
She felt that every single one of these clothes was stained with the blood of her family!
At that time, there was only hatred in her eyes…
She took out a pure white dress and compared it with the dress in front of her.
She did not like white!
Before her family was destroyed, she felt that the beautiful colors belonged to her…
Ever since the Ye family was destroyed, she only had black as her companion…
This white dress was the first dress that Chu Mo bought for her…
At that time, Chu Mo probably hoped that Ye Jiu would be as pure as this dress…
Ye Jiu put on the dress and walked to the mirror to look at herself.
She wore the long white dress with only a wrinkle at her waist. She looked exquisite and ladylike.
Ye Jiu had never worn it before.
Perhaps, from today onwards, she could try to like white…
Let everything be cleared up and reset…
