Chapter 1152: Tian Shen Manor II
The old butler was guarding the courtyard’s gate when he heard a peal of loud laughter coming from behind him. He could not help but turn back and look at them. His eyes were filled with pleasure.
He had never heard the old master’s laughter for a long time.
But since the young lady had returned, the old master looked healthy, and he smiled more than usual.
The young manor had done so many terrible things and hurt the young lady back then, so the old master was too embarrassed to let the young lady stay in the Mu family forever.
Nowadays… The young lady was willing to stay one more day, and this was enough to comfort the old master.
Thankfully, Young Master Nan Xian was part of the Mu family. As long as Nan Xian was here, the young lady would always come back, and the old master would not be lonely again.
“Suyi…” the old master’s expression suddenly turned serious. “Is there any news about Nan Xian and Ruqing?”
Suyi stared at him blankly. She smiled bitterly and shook her head. “Somebody came to the Lord Mayor’s manor a few days ago. It was said that the Lord Mayor was still guarding outside, but there was no news of them, and… Xiao Qingyin was also…”
“I didn’t ask about him.” The old master grunted. “That brat hasn’t brought a daughter-in-law for me, so he doesn’t need to come back. I’m only concerned about Nan Xian and Ruqing right now. My two sons have made me sick. Only my grandson can understand me, and bring me a granddaughter-in-law.”
These two sons… One of them had pissed off such a good daughter-in-law, and the other one had refused to get married.
In comparison, his grandson, Nan Xian, was such a good young man. He was not only strong but also obedient and understanding. He knew that this old man was going almost crazy thinking about the Mu family’s heir, so he had brought back a granddaughter-in-law to soothe his heart.
Especially this granddaughter-in-law… She was so lovable.
She could make a delicious meal, and she knew a lot about the spirit herbs. But most importantly, she was so beautiful and caring for the elderly. She was much better than that wicked, poisonous woman, Chen Qingyan.
“Mu Ling still hasn’t kicked out that woman, Chen Qingyan?” Whenever the old master mentioned Chen Qingyan, his entire old face became cold and sullen, a strong storm whirling in his eyes.
Suyi smiled and said, “I think they are getting along quite well. There is no need to kick out Chen Qingyan.”
If he kicked her out… How could she take revenge for what had happened back then?
“Suyi…” the old master sighed lightly and took Suyi’s hand. “I know you and Mu Ling can’t get back together again, but I only trust you in this family. There must have been a reason for my sudden illness back then, so you have to help me get rid of Chen Qingyan, or… Should I kill her?”
The old master had endured everything to this day because of Mu Ling.
Mu Ling had done so many wrong things, but he was his son after all.
He hated Mu Ling, but he did not want to get him killed.
So his only worry was if he killed Chen Qingyan, would Mu Ling also kill himself?
He would be pleased if she could disappear from his sight, but he was not that cruel to Mu Ling. However, his heart could never calm down if he did not kill Chen Qingyan.
Even though he had not seen Chen Qingyan for about a year, he would seethe with hatred just by thinking about being under the same roof as her.
“No, you can’t either. You can’t come out with any devilish plan, just like Xiao Qingyin. I’ll better wait for my granddaughter-in-law to come back. She is so smart. She can think of a way to make Mu Ling and Chen Qingyan turn against each other, and push him to kill Chen Qingyan. This will make me happier than ever.”
