MY UNKNOWN HUSBAND, VOLUME 2 - Season 4 Episode 91
In the Ye family residence
Julie sat on the balcony to have afternoon tea. She had just read the top search news.
The news of Nina’s drowning dropped from first place to the third, but was still eye-catching.
Julie didn’t care about the comments below the post. She only cared whether John would fulfill his promise to marry her daughter.
She called Vivian and asked her to come back early from the Ye Group to discuss important matters.
Vivian studied hard while working in the Ye Group. She was polite to everyone around her, thus earning her a good reputation. Even Henry had praised her many times in front of Adrian.
“Henry, I’d like to ask for a leave for the rest of the afternoon. I am needed at home.” Vivian was now Henry’s assistant. She never sought any special privileges, and she sought Henry’s approval before doing anything.
Henry just nodded and let her go.
She ran into Adrian as she walked out of the office.
“Mr. Song, are you waiting for Henry to get off work again?” It was not the first time that Vivian saw Adrian waiting for Henry to get off work. Adrian did it almost every day.
Vivian couldn’t help thinking, ‘This is confusing.
If Adrian were a woman, I can understand why.
He is a man, though.’
“You already know it. Why do you still ask me?” Adrian didn’t like Vivian, especially after Henry praised her over and over in front of him.
Vivian smiled politely. “I know you and Henry have a good relationship, but shouldn’t you be closer to Mr. Shi? After all, you knew him first”
“Hmm,” Adrian said perfunctorily and walked past her.
Vivian stared at Adrian’s departing back, and her expression became more thoughtful.
She felt that the relationship between the two men were unusual.
However, she couldn’t exactly pinpoint what was odd about it.
Her mother started calling again, so Vivian hurried back. She thought that something serious had happened, but it turned out that her mother wanted to berate her.
“Vivian, what’s wrong with you? Aren’t you worried about your marriage at all? I traded my blood for it.” Julie pointed at the top search on the screen of her mobile phone. “Nina has been dead for three days, but Mr. Shi still hasn’t come to talk about your marriage. You didn’t contact him at all. Do you really want to make me angry?”
“Mom!” Vivian said impatiently. “You don’t know what’s happening, so don’t talk nonsense. I have my own plan.”
She was an impatient person, but her mother was even more so. “What can you do? Look at what you have done.
You have set up such an elaborate trap, but you haven’t caught anything yet. You should have listened to me at the beginning. You should have had sex with Mr. Shi to make Nina uncomfortable so that she would leave. Then, you can be his woman. It’s so simple. Why do you have to make it so complicated?”
Every time Vivian heard her one of her mother’s bad ideas, she would feel sick. She wouldn’t resort to such a dirty trick—she didn’t want others to find fault with her and speak ill of her when her back was turned.
However, her plan wouldn’t succeed without her mother’s help. Win or lose, they were in the same boat. They shouldn’t butt heads or go against each other.
“Mom, let me explain it to you first.”
Vivian stood behind her mother and gently massaged her shoulders.
People would naturally be in a good mood as long as they felt comfortable.
Julie said in a softer tone, “Tell me, then.”
“Mom, the news of Nina’s drowning is still on the hot search. If the news of Mr. Shi’s next marriage to me is spread at this time, we will be accused of taking advantage of Nina’s death, and Mr. Shi will definitely become suspicious of us. We can’t do anything rash at this point—we have to wait for him to take the initiative.” Vivian’s fingers were starting to feel sore from massaging Julie’s shoulders, so she switched to lightly punching her mother’s shoulders with her fists.
“Wait for Mr. Shi to take the initiative? What if never makes a move?” Julie was worried about her daughter, but she had to admit that what she said was reasonable.
Vivian smiled and said in a firm tone, “Since Mr. Shi has given his word, he won’t break his promise. It’s only a matter of time. I’ve been waiting for him for so many years, so I won’t mind waiting a little longer.”
“You’re right, but I’m just worried that something would go wrong.” Julie patted her daughter’s hand and pulled her to sit next to her. “I think we should make our move early, or else I will always feel uneasy.”
Well, her mother wasn’t the only one feeling anxious.
“Mom, are there any people investigating why Sam received the recording?” Vivian asked with a worried frown on her face.
Julie shook her head and said, “No. I don’t know anything about it. Somebody must be investigating why the two people with the same blood type as me suddenly left Lexingport City. I’m worried that they will find you.”
Alarm bells started ringing in Vivian’s mind.
It seemed like John had really taken action.
“Mom, this is exactly why I don’t want any word of Mr. Shi marrying me to spread just yet.” The worry in Julie’s face did not deter Vivian. She continued, “I found out something strange—Amy and Lena disappeared all of a sudden. Richard’s the only one still with Mr. Shi.”
“What do you mean?” Julie asked, her heart pounding in her chest. “Do you think Mr. Shi has send them to investigate these things in secret?”
They lived in constant fear that John would be able to figure out what they had done.
“It’s highly possible.” Vivian held her mother’s hand. “That’s why we can’t act rashly, or we might end up inadvertently providing them with clues to follow.”
“Yes, yes, you are right.” Julie nodded repeatedly. “It’s not that easy to fool Mr. Shi. He’s very suspicious by nature. He won’t trust us until he has the matter thoroughly investigated.”
Vivian smiled and comforted her mother, “Don’t worry, Mom. He won’t find out that easily. If he says nothing in the next three months, we can make our move.”
“I agree.” Vivian finally managed to allay her mother’s fears, and the older woman’s worries gradually dissipated.
On the balcony, the two women stared at the gorgeous sunset. The glow of the late afternoon sun stretched out a figure passing by the yard.
The owner of the figure was another thorn on their side.
“Why is Noah back?” Julie stood aside and saw Noah walking towards Howard’s study. She patted Vivian on the shoulder and said, “Go and find out why he’s here. He seldom comes back. Something must have happened.”
Julie’s suspicion proved to be correct.
Noah applied to for a transfer from the Lexingport City police department to Spring City.
The news brought the family mixed feelings of happiness and worry. They were worried because even if Noah left to work in Spring City, he was still the largest shareholder of the Ye Group.
However, once Noah left, they could do whatever they wanted, and he wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
Looking at the news from such a perspective, Julie and Vivian could consider Noah’s transfer to be a good thing.
At present, their greatest worry was whether John would find out what they had done.
Julie and Vivian guessed that Amy and Lena were conducting a secret investigation, but they didn’t think more people were looking into the matter other than those two.
Richard stayed with John. In addition to helping John deal with the company’s affairs, he was also responsible for honing John’s fighting skills.
After all, John also had a plan.
