Chapter 174: Just Find Another Way
Old Master Shi was so mad that his white hair stood up. He looked at Shi Beiyu and slammed the table furiously. “Afraid that I’ll get mad? If you really are, then the earth would turn out of its orbit!”
Shi Beiyu lowered his head slightly and kept quiet for a while. Then, he said, “I was wrong yesterday. I apologize.”
“If you want my forgiveness, cut off all ties with that woman immediately!”
Shi Beiyu looked up at him. “I did apologize to you, but I’m not looking for your forgiveness.”
“You…” Old Master Shi was so mad that he could vomit blood!
“You b*stard! Do you want me to die of anger?”
“I’ve told you, Grandpa. She’s innocent. Why do you insist on putting all your grudges on her?”
Mother Shi clenched her fists before she looked at Shi Beiyu and whispered, “I can’t sleep at night whenever I think of her face.”
Shi Beiyu was speechless. “It’s time for you to let go of your grudges.”
However, Mother Shi said, “Do you know what occasion it is in a few day’s time?”
Shi Beiyu paused.
“I’ll never forget that day twelve years ago!” A hint of sorrow and hate filled Mother Shi’s eyes.
Shi Beiyu took a few deep breaths and looked at Mother Shi. “Her mother… has already paid the price with her life. Why are you both still so hung up over this matter? It’s time you let things go!”
Old Master Shi grunted lightly. “She was a bad mother. Her death is nothing!”
Upon hearing this, Shi Beiyu lifted his hand to stop them from talking. “Enough. I don’t want to talk about this with both of you anymore. I’ll call the shots for my relationship and my marriage. Stop meddling with my life!”
However, Old Master Shi refused to back off. “You are a grandchild of the Shi family. You have no rights over your own marriage!”
Shi Beiyu scoffed. “Does that mean I can call the shots if I’m not a grandson of the Shi family?”
“You…” Old Master Shi was lost for words.
Mother Shi looked devastated. “Ah Yu, why are you arguing so much with us over a woman? You really disappoint me.”
“I can’t do anything if I disappoint you by marrying the woman that I want to.”
It was his indirect way of telling them to be forever disappointed.
His remark made both Old Master Shi and Mother Shi furious. He had never been like this before, yet now…
He had completely changed for a woman! That woman was nothing but disaster!
“I still need to attend to some affairs at the company. I need to go.”
Today would be the last time he talked about Mu Siyin with them.
Old Master Shi and Mother Shi did not stop Shi Beiyu as he walked away coldly.
If their words could not stop him, what was the point of wasting their breaths?
They could always find another way…
Mu Siyin was in a bad mood that day. Since there were no tasks for her, her day at the office was dull.
It was almost time to go home when someone said, “The Double Seventh Festival is in three days!”
Mu Siyin instantly froze.
Double Seventh Festival?
“Yeah. I’m going to feel so lonely being single again. I wish that this festival didn’t exist in the first place.”
“Really? You’ll probably wish for it to be Valentine’s Day every day once you have a boyfriend.”
“Are you crazy? Every day is Valentine’s Day if I have a boyfriend!”
Mu Siyin frowned slightly and took out her phone to check the calendar.
The once-in-a-year Double Seventh Festival was really in three days.
This festival had a different take on Mu Siyin.
After all, her sister Mu Siyun had passed away in a car accident that day. That was why she had never celebrated this day with Gu Yifan in the past.
