Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Hearing Mu Anan’s words, Dr. Gu asked, “Are you going to reveal your identity?”
There was not much surprise in his tone, as if he had known that Mu Anan would make it public.
Her identity had to be made public.
However, Dr. Gu was surprised that Mu Anan would announce it at such a time. He was even more surprised that Zong Zhengyu had agreed.
After all, if Seventh Master did not agree, Mu Anan would definitely not be able to make it public.
“Some things must be taken back.” After Mu Anan finished speaking, she said thoughtfully, “It’s been eight years.”
In the past eight years, Jiang Zhen had gone from being a live-in son-in-law to the head of the Mu family’s pharmaceutical group.
In the end, the Mu family’s pharmaceutical group had completely become the Jiang family’s.
There were thousands of news articles in the city in the past eight years. Everything about the Mu family had long been buried in those tens of thousands of news articles.
No one remembered that there was once a Mu family.
No one remembered that the mother and daughter of the Mu family were once called the savior of medicine and the genius of medicine by the news.
They only remembered the Jiang Medical Group that was successfully listed.
They only remembered that the Jiang Medical Group had been steadily advancing over the past few years and had secured its position as the number one company in Jianglan City.
In addition, Jiang Zhen had always paid attention to his and the company’s image. His charity foundation was doing very well, and it could be said that it had boundless glory.
Dr. Gu stood up and patted Mu Anan’s shoulder. He did not comment on Mu Anan’s meeting with the Jiang family.
It was considered a silent support.
“Before you leave, 1 need to tell you two things.” Dr. Gu said.
Mu Anan listened quietly.
“First, sit down first. Your foot is injured. Although it’s not that serious, to prevent the situation from worsening, you should avoid standing like this for the next two days.”
As he spoke, Dr. Gu had already helped Mu Anan sit back on the sofa.
Mu Anan had forgotten about her foot injury.
Even though her ankle was sore and swollen when she woke up, she had been so focused on talking to Dr. Gu that she had forgotten about it and did not notice it when she stood up.
Now that Dr. Gu had mentioned it, Mu Anan instantly felt pain.
Mu Anan reached out and rubbed it.
Dr. Gu said, “It’s just a sprain. It’ll only hurt for today. It won’t hurt much tomorrow after the inflammation is reduced.”
“What about the second thing?” Mu Anan asked. She did not take the injury to heart.
Dr. Gu did not sit on the sofa. Instead, he sat directly on the coffee table and faced Mu Anan, “The second thing is about Chen Hua.”
As soon as Dr. Gu said that, Mu Anan, who was bending over to massage her ankle gently, suddenly stopped.
Her eyelashes fluttered.
However, she quickly regained her composure and straightened her back, “Go ahead. It’s fine.”
“You better be mentally prepared.” Dr. Gu said.
“I’ve investigated with Luo Sen. Chen Hua’s family is very problematic.” As Dr. Gu spoke, he observed Mu Anan’s expression.
After all, she only had that one friend. Mu Anan was stubborn and had a strong personality. She could not tolerate any betrayal.
If her only friend had betrayed her, it would be a huge blow to her.
Previously, Dr. Gu had already believed that Chen Hua had betrayed. But because of the huge fire, Mu Anan wanted to re-investigate.
For Dr. Gu, he did not agree with a re-investigation because it would be collateral damage.
However, Mu Anan was stubborn. If she said she wanted to investigate again, she would do so. She was willing to suffer no matter how bad it would be.
Dr. Gu had once hoped that Mu Anan would change her personality.
Sometimes, she would suffer and get hurt.
However, he had no right to hope for such a little princess.
Dr. Gu continued, “Luo Sen’s people have investigated the Chen family, from Chen Hua’s father’s incident to Chen Hua’s mother’s case, and found that after the incidents ended, Chen Hua’s father, mother, and even Chen Hua and her brother all had a large amount of money in their accounts.”
Hearing that, Mu Anan did not show much emotion on her face.
She looked calm.
“And then?” Mu Anan asked.
Dr. Gu said, “The Chen family has been applying for an immigration visa in the past two days. It’s obvious that they have internal connections. The immigration visa application is fast and smooth. According to the plan, they will go abroad next month.”
“It looks like they had done something for someone and received a huge sum. They can even choose to go abroad.” When Mu Anan said that, her tone did not change.
Dr. Gu felt uncomfortable and could not help but add, “The investigation is only up to this point. Whether it has anything to do with Chen Hua, whether it’s slander or Chen Hua’s quibbling, we need to follow up further. There should be news by today.”
“I understand.” Mu Anan replied calmly. She looked around and pointed at the wheelchair at the side, “Help me push it over. 1 need to go downstairs.”
Dr. Gu looked at Mu Anan and got up to push the wheelchair.
After helping Mu Anan onto the wheelchair, Mu Anan looked down at the button and pushed the wheelchair out.
As soon as she opened the door, Mu Anan grabbed a servant, “Go and invite the Jiang family to the living room.”
“Miss Anan, the Jiang family is already waiting for you in the living room.” The servant replied respectfully, “Are you going down now?”
“Let’s go down.” Mu Anan waved her hand.
The servant went behind Mu Anan and pushed the wheelchair toward the stairs.
There were steps, and Mu Anan was carried down the stairs in a wheelchair by two servants.
The stairs were semi-circular, and the supporting pillars were decorated with black top-quality porcelain. The part facing the living room could be seen clearly from the sofa.
Jiang Zhen, Guo Yuehua, and Jiang Qin, who had been waiting outside the whole night, had just been invited to the living room. Through the wall, they could see Mu Anan’s situation clearly.
Jiang Qin still hadn’t recovered from what had happened at Jiang Capital the previous night. Guo Yuehua had been suppressing her, or she would have gone crazy.
Seeing Mu Anan being carried down like that, the jealousy within her grew like crazy.
She kept clenching her fists tightly.
She kept questioning herself like crazy. Why?
What right did that ugly girl have to enjoy such an honor?
And on what basis could a trash who was nothing receive such treatment?
She was the real legitimate daughter of a wealthy family. She was the superior eldest young lady and a member of the upper echelons of society.
How could someone like Mu Anan enter the wealthy circle?
Jiang Qin was filled with grief and indignation. Guo Yuehua glanced at the stairs and reached out to hold Jiang Qin’s hand, patting it gently.
She whispered in Jiang Qin’s ear, “Don’t be afraid, Xiao Qin. I’ve told you before that you’re nobler than others. No matter what happens, you’ll always be nobler than others. You’re an eldest young lady, a member of the upper echelons of the wealthy.”
When Guo Yuehua said that, she subconsciously straightened her back.
To her, coming over to apologize that day was just a stopgap measure.
She was only lowering her head for the time being.
Just like back then, when Jiang Zhen married Mu Qing, she only lowered her head and became a mistress temporarily. When the time came, she immediately became the madam of a wealthy family.
It was the same then!
