MY LOVING MARRIAGE - Season 5 Episode 82
However, just as Qi Lei said this, Wang Qin’s heart could not help but sting. It was a feeling that she could not explain. She remained startled for a while before she continued washing the ingredients.
“Xiao Lei, no matter what it is, you’re still a part of the Qi family. As your mother, I know that even though you look like you don’t care, you’re actually just laid back and don’t bother to bicker, but you must know that sometimes, even if you let go and tolerate them, they won’t let go of you. Do you understand?”
When Wang Qin said this, her expression seemed solemn. She did not turn to look at Qi Lei. Instead, she sighed and continued, “It has always been the strong and powerful who have the rights to speak. It’s even more so in the business world. Think about it. If I had handed my shares to your father to handle back then, how would things look like today? Son, you’ll be controlled by others if you aren’t powerful. Then, it’ll be too late to regret when that happens. You will lose all your power to hit back.”
Wang Qin was very worried. Even she herself felt that all her life, she was like a warrior who kept on fighting. This female warrior could only compromise the family’s interests with fate, sacrificing herself. Perhaps when it came to love, kinship, and her best interests, she had chosen the latter two, and given up on love.
Actually, there was not much to talk about here. It was not a heinous thing to give up on love and choose kinship. To the innocent her back then, the two of them were equal in position. She could not possibly deny or part with her parents for the sake of a relationship.
With regard to relationships, love, kinship, friendship, and many more, everyone would have different views and different priorities, so Wang Qin had never regretted her decision back then.
She chose her own journey, and she would finish it even if she had to kneel all the way. She did not mind having to deal with Qi Qiming and the rest because she needed to fight for something for the sake of her son.
“Mother, you think too much. You and the old man built Qi Kai together. It turned out so grand and formidable. A halo like that is too dazzling. It’s simply too garish to me. I don’t need you two to give me my own halo either. The old man has never liked me anyway. You two can go and be the so-called strong and powerful while I’ll be the audience. I’ll, you know, hype you up from time to time.”
Qi Lei’s tone sounded weird, yet you could also hear the plain sarcasm in it.
“Xiao Lei, what are you saying? I’m only doing all this for… Never mind. I don’t want to pick a fight with you. It hasn’t been too peaceful recently, so I hope that you can come home for a while. In fact, I hope that you can get to know Xian Er. I personally think she’s quite nice. She’d be perfect for you since she’s from a prestigious family. We’re well-matched. Qi Qiming would have to agree too. It’s time you find a woman to marry and live your life properly.”
“If you want to marry someone, you can let the old man do that, or you can do it yourself too.”
When this matter was raised, Qi Lei smiled coldly. He looked in disdain at Wang Qin, then turned to leave the kitchen.
“Xiao Lei! You…”
Wang Qin always had no way of dealing with Qi Lei’s temper, and now…
But no matter what, she definitely could not let that witch, Gu Lingsha reappear and disrupt things, that woman looks simple, yet she extremely ingenuine, even Wang Qin felt uneasy!
This woman could almost make the Gus, the Mus, and the Qis tear into each other years ago. Mu Lingtian had even died tragically while Mu Lingshi was disfigured. Qi Feng and Qi Lei had also…
She still did not know whether the Gu family was involved in shameful, shady business. Whatever it was, she definitely would not allow such a dangerous woman to get close to Qi Lei again!
She could not tell Qi Lei about the news!
A brief and perfect wedding and their honeymoon passed by in the blink of an eye. After a short weekend, the husband and wife continued their usual routine. They woke up for work together, had lunch together, and went home together in the evening. After the short enthusiasm faded, they returned to their calm and simple life from before.
Mu Yuchen could not bear to let Xiaye work too hard, so he made arrangements for the projects that she had been supervising previously. Now, she was just focused on the South River project. Of course, she seemed to be following Mu Yuchen everywhere!
After a long period of time, he seemed to be calling her up to his office for all sorts of work reasons, so the company employees finally found out about their relationship.
Even though the husband and wife were very low-profile, if they reached work, she would get down from the car first, and then when work ended, he would work till quite late. When he came over to fetch her, the entire office would be empty. Still, every time she got into the elevator, the employees would look at her ambiguously and oddly. Some glanced at her with envy, some with gasps of admiration. She was not quite used to all of this, yet this was all thanks to a certain someone.
Just like right now—
Xi Xiaye was working on a blueprint. With a pen in her hand, from time to time, she would mark something down. Suddenly, her phone rang, startling her. Without even looking up, she picked the phone up.
“Director Xi, come to my office right away.”
She already knew who it was before he finished. Without waiting for her answer, he hung up.
Xi Xiaye frowned. She held her hurting head with her fingers, then sighed after a while. She packed the blueprint up and walked out of the door.
She took the elevator and reached the highest floor. Then, she walked to Mu Yuchen’s office before she realized that no one was inside. He was nowhere to be found even after she looked around. She glanced at the door to the resting lounge that was shut tightly before she leisurely sat down on his chair before the desk. She began to browse through the information on his laptop.
After a while, when she had only browsed through a few lines, there was a faint fragrance that tempted her nostrils. Before she could react, a stalk of blossoming blue rose was put before her, taking her by surprise. She quickly turned to look beside her, then she saw his handsome face brimming with a heartwarming smile as he silently watched her.
A gentle light flashed in her eyes. She smiled and swiftly took it before she planted a kiss on his cheek. “Are you happy about something? How rare of you to gift me a flower in broad daylight! Usually, you give these sort of things to me at night, and would let me bring it home to put in the vase.”
She lowered her head to sniff it before she peered up at him in wonder.
He pulled her up and sat down before he drew her to sit on his lap. “I have good news for you. I’m sure you’ll be really happy hearing it.”
“What good news?” she asked, puzzled.
