Chapter 592: Will You Marry Me
Just as he had expected, what happened today had been man-made. Someone had specially set up a roadblock there. However, since the area was too remote and there were no surveillance cameras around, it was impossible to see who had done it.
At the same time, the intelligence unit also discovered that Assistant Yu had not gone abroad. He had not even accepted any assignments and had been staying at home this whole time. They then sent the location to Shi Mo.
Based on the location, Shi Mo personally went to look for him. The address was in a residential area that looked pretty good. However, Shi Mo had never personally gone to his house before. It was not too far from the company, only a 20-minute drive away.
Assistant Yu had not expected that Shi Mo would actually come to look for him personally. The moment he opened the door and saw Shi Mo, he did not only look surprised, but also a little… aggrieved.
Even his eyes turned red.
Shi Mo, “…”
“Why haven’t I been able to get through to your phone?” Shi Mo asked with a slight frown. Assistant Yu seemed to have been slacking off at home.
Unexpectedly, when Assistant Yu saw that he was being questioned by Shi Mo, he immediately felt even more aggrieved and defended himself, “I was fired by Second Master. Then, as I was leaving, I accidentally dropped my phone. I was thinking of buying a new one tomorrow.”
“Fired you? Why?” Shi Mo’s heart flinched as a bad thought suddenly arose in his heart.
Assistant Yu had followed him for many years and had never made any mistakes. Why would Shi Yu want to fire him when he had only just come to the company? Moreover, he had not even discussed such a big matter with him.
“I don’t know what the reason is either. All he said was that it was the old master’s request. And since the old madam had also given the order, all I could do was leave. However, before I left, I overheard Second Master talking about you going to the haunted house. He even said that as long as nothing untoward happened, everything would be fine. Then, when he saw me, he fired me. It’s possible that… I heard something that I shouldn’t have.”
Assistant Yu did not say the rest. Although he was just a private assistant, he had been by Shi Mo’s side for many years and had helped him deal with all sorts of big and small matters. Perhaps he had not become the most shrewd person, but he was still a pretty decent judge of character.
Even though he had only gotten halfway through his sentence, his meaning was already very clear.
Shi Mo understood immediately. Before he left, he asked his assistant to take a paid vacation and wait for his news.
After returning to the company, Shi Mo told the few remaining employees to go home. Then, he went to Shi Yu’s office to check his computer.
Unfortunately, the computer was clean and there was nothing on it. However, it was precisely because the computer was too clean that Shi Mo became even more confused.
He called over the employees from the technical department to restore the computer. Sure enough, he then saw the communication messages from Shi Yu.
“Boss, there’s a lot of deleted data here. All of it has been restored,” the employee said to Shi Mo.
“Hmm,” Shi Mo replied and began to read the restored messages.
The calm expression that had originally been on his face gradually turned cold when he saw the information. In the end, he clenched his fists as the cold aura around him became more and more dense.
The employees by his side began to feel colder and colder, and goosebumps appeared on their skin. They looked at the air conditioner. Could it be that the temperature was too low today?
After Shi Mo finished reading everything, he copied all the information before restoring the computer and leaving the company.
He had not expected to find that the mastermind behind the accident that day was Shi Yu. The purpose of it was to cripple him so that he could inherit the Shi family’s business.
Originally, he had no interest in these businesses at all. He had originally planned to give them to Shi Yu one day anyway. However, he had not expected that Shi Yu had been able to disguise himself so well. He had always pretended to be a very carefree person, but in fact, he had always had a little plan in mind.
Since that was the case, he decided that he would not do it now.
He wanted to see what else this silly-looking brother of his could do.
Shi Mo pretended that nothing had happened and returned to the program team base. With his identity as an investor, not only did the program team not dare to stop him, they even bowed and welcomed him.
Fang Mo’er was still awake and happily surfing the Internet. When she saw that Shi Mo had returned, she smiled and showed her phone to him.
“Hubby, the release date for “The Most Beautiful Doctor” has been set and it will be out in two months. The director has invited me to sing an interlude, and the song I voted for is now the first choice on the list…” Fang Mo’er smiled as she showed off to Shi Mo. However, Shi Mo merely looked at her quietly without any reaction.
The more Fang Mo’er spoke, the quieter her voice became. She felt that something was not right with Shi Mo’s expression so before she could finish, she shut her mouth and did not say anything else.
She blinked her eyes and asked Shi Mo softly, “Hubby, what’s wrong?”
Shi Mo came closer and pulled Fang Mo’er into his arms. He hugged her tightly, placing his chin on Fang Mo’er’s head. Then he asked her carefully, “Mo’er, will you marry me?”
