MY LOVING MARRIAGE - Season 5 Episode 87
As Xi Xiaye listened, she frowned and stared in that direction for a long while. When she turned back to Mu Yuchen, she realized that he had already averted his gaze and was now quietly staring at Mu Lingtian’s picture on the tombstone. Loneliness and sorrow were evident in his expression.
Xi Xiaye walked over and gently pulled him up.
“Five years passed by just like that, but the incident didn’t fade with the passing of time. Instead, it became even clearer. Those who live don’t necessarily feel better than those who have passed,” he suddenly said, his tone sounding like a sigh.
“Mmm, you need a lot of courage to keep on living, but this is something that can’t be helped. Just as you said, life goes on. Otherwise, what else can we do?” Xi Xiaye softly responded.
Mu Yuchen allowed himself a tiny smile as he slowly took a cigarette box out from his pocket. He lit three cigarettes and laid them on Mu Lingtian’s tombstone. Then, he lit one up for himself too and leisurely took a drag. Squinting at Mu Lingtian’s picture, he said in a low voice, “Happy birthday, Lingtian.”
Xi Xiaye did a slight bow to the tombstone too.
She stared at the words on the tombstone for quite a while and suddenly lamented, “When he left, he was still very young.”
Mu Yuchen took a glance at the words carved on the tombstone too and he smiled sadly. “Mmm, he was only 23, so that’s why I feel…”
He did not continue, but Xi Xiaye knew what he meant too.
She held his hand tightly and sighed. “Pray that they are doing well on the other side. Let’s go. It’s a little chilly here.”
Then, she looked up at the haze in the sky. The wisps of pale light were struggling, yet they could not seep through the thick layer of clouds.
With a nod, he finally took one last drag before he put the cigarette out. He held her hand and then turned to walk downstairs.
The husband and wife had just walked to the car when the bodyguards in black suits walked up to them.
Mu Yuchen stopped walking and looked at them before he spoke, “Did you see that person earlier?”
“No, Master! We have been guarding here, but we didn’t see the man that you mentioned.”
When he heard this, Mu Yuchen’s gaze subconsciously darkened. Then, he looked up contemplatively at the empty staircase. After a while, he still did not say anything.
Xi Xiaye calmly looked at him before she spoke softly, “Let’s return first. We’ll think of a way to investigate afterward. If he really wants to hide from us, we can’t do anything about it. Note down all of the car plate numbers around here and get them checked. See if you can find out anything.”
“Yes, Missus! We’ve already noted all of them down.”
Xi Xiaye nodded and followed Mu Yuchen into the car.
The car sped all the way. He did not say anything throughout the journey. Xi Xiaye thought about it before she spoke up, “Let’s make a trip back to the old Mu residence. We’ve been so busy recently and haven’t had the time to go visit. Instead, Grandmother came over to the Maple Residence for quite a few times. We can also see if Ah Shi needs anything else. Then, we can bring everything to her tomorrow at a go.”
The man, who had been gently leaning back against the seat and shut his eyes to rest calmly, nodded without opening her eyes to look at her.
Ever since Wang Qin and Qi Qiming had had that huge argument, she had been going over to Qi Lei’s place often, especially after she received that e-mail which made her even more uneasy. She could not help but be more vigilant.
In Qi Lei’s yard at the Grand Waves Villa on a dazzling afternoon.
Wang Qin lay down on the recliner as she flipped through some proposals of collaborations with other companies when Yang Sheng suddenly appeared.
“VP Wang, Master Qi says he won’t be coming home tonight.”
When Yang Sheng finished, Wang Qin immediately frowned. She looked up and her sharp eyes glared at Yang Sheng as she asked coldly, “Why not?”
“Master Qi says he has plans tonight. He might make a trip out of the city, so he won’t be returning,” Yang Sheng responded carefully.
Wang Qin’s expression clouded over and she fell silent for a while. She replied calmly, “What’s the progress of that investigation?”
“VP Wang, we’ve found out that the girl is indeed Miss Gu Lingsha. The actual information about her is still being consolidated and will be sent over very soon.”
Wang Qin closed the document in hand as her expression was solemn. She told Yang Sheng sternly, “You cannot let Xiao Lei know about this. Do you understand?”
Gu Lingsha had always brought the most harm to Qi Lei, so Wang Qin had always been extremely against her. This woman was scheming and unpredictable. She had never had a good impression of Gu Lingsha. No matter what, she could not let her affect Qi Lei again.
“Yes, VP Wang! I understand!”
Yang Sheng’s expression turned slightly serious too. He knew about those things well. In fact, all these years by Qi Lei’s side, he could already more or less understand some of his emotions. Gu Lingsha had always had a special place in Qi Lei’s heart. All these years, Qi Lei had never forgotten her, so…
Wang Qin took a deep breath. She could not help but sigh again. “Xiao Lei, sigh, why can’t he just understand I’m doing all that for him? Who else do I worry about? He’s just too naive. A vicious person like Qi Feng who isn’t what he seems and would never let him have it easy. If only years ago, Gu Lingsha didn’t… Sigh, I’m not the only one who’s against her, hmm!”
“VP Wang, if Master Feng didn’t die, then how come there were no words from CEO Qi at all? All these years, the Qi family and the Gu family haven’t been in contact much either. Outsiders have all guessed that the three families have had a fall out because of the car accident. Especially Mu Lingtian’s death… Initially, we thought that the Mu family would definitely wreak havoc with the Gu family and the Qi family,” Yang Sheng probed carefully.
“Ha, the Mu family lost Mu Lingtian. How are the Qis and the Gus going to speak up? At first, this all stemmed from Qi Feng and Gu Lingsha taking things too far, but I do find it weird. How did Mu Lingtian get involved?”
Yang Sheng shook his head. “VP Wang, I find this weird too. After all, doesn’t Mu Yuchen want to understand what happened years ago too? That’s why all these years, just like VP Wang, he has never given up on looking out for news on the two of them. Now that we know Miss Gu Lingsha is still alive, perhaps we could let him know. That way, we might be able to find out a thing or two from him!”
“Mu Yuchen?” When Yang Sheng brought up this name, Wang Qin’s expression seemed startled.
“Yes, VP Wang! I’ve noticed that he has also been brooding over the incident years ago. Even if he did leave City Z for many years, he never gave up on trying to find out news about Master Feng and Miss Gu Lingsha, so I think he, more than anyone else, would want to know the truth about what happened years ago.”
