Song Ning was surprised when she heard Mu Chen’s words. She fell deep into her thoughts before she finally said, “So she’s Fu Le’s aunt…”
Mu Chen nodded. “I found out about this after my first reply to you…”
Realization dawned on Song Ning at this moment. “The Fu family sent me a lawyer’s letter recently; they want Zhuang Ji’s embroidery techniques that have been patented and trademarked. I’ve handed the matter over to Lawyer Yang…” She paused for a moment before she continued to say, “Fu Le’s aunt first went to Zhuang Ji. Then, she came to the hospital. It’s clear she’s trying to approach me and get close to me. You said her father is the Vice Mayor as well; this Fu Ting isn’t simple at all. It seems like she wants the embroidery techniques as well…”
“It’s clear she has evil intentions. Song Ning, let’s not go to the beach this weekend. I’m afraid she’ll plot against you…” Mu Chen said as he furrowed his brows.
Song Ning fell silent for a moment before she said, “Hiding isn’t a solution. She’ll only find other ways if we keep avoiding her. Isn’t it better to confront this matter directly? What do you think?”
Mu Chen glanced at Song Ning’s belly from the corners of his eyes. “But you’re…”
Song Ning placed her hand on her abdomen and gently said, “Our baby is willing to weather the storm with Mommy. Moreover, I will pay extra attention to take care of our baby…”
Since Song Ning was insistent about going to the beach, Mu Chen had no choice but to acquiesce to her wish.
In order to act more naturally, Song Ning decided not to tell Jiahui about this matter. After all, with Jiahui’s direct personality, Jiahui definitely would not be able to hold after finding out that Fu Ting harbored evil intentions.
On the day of the barbecue at the beach.
Fu Ting had brought Ye Cheng as her boyfriend.
Upon seeing Mu Chen, Song Ning, Cheng Che, and Jiahui, Ye Cheng seemed very surprised.
Song Ning glanced at Mu Chen, her expression saying, “Look at his acting skills…”
Mu Chen placed his hand on Song Ning’s shoulder and only smiled wordlessly in response to Ye Cheng.
Ye Cheng said apologetically, “Song Ning, I’m really sorry about Ye Xin. It’s due to my negligence that her mental health deteriorated to such a state. As a result, it even brought both of you so much trouble…”
Song Ning smiled perfunctorily. “Mr. Ye, you’re too kind. Since this matter is being handled by our lawyers, there’s no need for us to talk about this…”
Song Ning’s reply was neutral; neither accepting nor refusing Ye Cheng’s apology.
Ye Cheng did not persist on the topic as well. Then, he introduced Fu Ting to Mu Chen as his childhood friend whom he had known since he was in kindergarten.
Everyone glossed over Ye Xin’s matter as though it did not exist. On the surface, everything was peaceful.
As the host, Fu Ting prepared a sumptuous spread for everyone.
Everyone got along swimmingly and the sounds of laughter made the atmosphere very lively.
Mu Chen did not leave Song Ning’s side the entire time, and Song Ning did not touch the food at all except for the fruits.
At some point, Fu Ting handed a plate of grilled chicken wings to Song Ning. “I saw that you haven’t eaten much. Is it not to your liking? Why don’t you have some of these chicken wings that I personally grilled? Don’t worry. I grilled them with honey so they won’t affect the baby.” Then, she added, “Dr. Song is really careful. Your baby must be a boy, right? I’ll have to congratulate you first…”
Song Ning smiled and took the plate from Fu Ting. “Miss Fu, you’re too polite… I can help myself. Don’t worry.”
Fu Ting seized the chance and took a seat next to Song Ning before she said to Ye Cheng, who had moved next to her, “Why don’t you and Mr. Mu enjoy yourselves? I’ll keep Dr. Song company…”
Ye Cheng turned to Mu Chen and asked, “What do you think, Chen? Shall we go for a walk?”
Mu Chen did not reply immediately as he mulled over Ye Cheng’s invitation.
Upon seeing this, Song Ning patted Mu Chen gently on the shoulder and said, “Go ahead. Miss Fu is here to accompany me…”
When Mu Chen was about to protect, Song Ning waved her hand and said, “Go on. When you return, you can bring a plate of fruits as well…”
After everyone left, Song Ning calmly asked, “Miss Fu, do you want to speak to me alone?”
Fu Ting was unruffled by Song Ning’s question. She said, “I knew you’re smart.”
Song Ning smiled faintly. “It’s not that I’m smart; it’s just that you’re too obvious.. Since there’s no one around, why don’t you go straight to the point, Miss Fu?”
