DOTED BY YOUNG MASTER - Season 2 Episode 59
Mu Siyin was shocked to hear this. After a second, she glanced at Lu Jingchen and insisted, “Stop the car! I’m not going there!”
The man pretended not to hear her and replied in a low yet stern voice, “You have to!”
“Auntie and Cousin Siyun are no longer around, Yinyin. Grandpa isn’t in his best shape now too, so he can’t look out for you. That’s why I’ll never turn a blind eye to you taking a thorny path!”
Mu Siyin was touched by what he said, but she replied helplessly, “I know you care about me, Cuz, but some things are not as they seem. It’s his family that wants to pick a fiancee, not him.”
A look of determination was cast on Lu Jingchen’s face. “It’s fine. You can always decide after you see for yourself.”
“I… Please let me get down. I really don’t want to go.” She pleaded sincerely.
It was better to turn a blind eye to some things. No matter what the outcome of the dinner was, she did not want to know. As long as he remained loyal, she would definitely stay by his side. It did not matter how difficult that would be.
Lu Jingchen’s mind was made. “You have to go.”
He wanted Mu Siyin to see how different she was from Shi Beiyu. He wanted her to know that Shi Beiyu would never marry her even though he liked her. That was why she should end things with him!
“Cuz, even if… Even if he doesn’t marry me, I’ll never regret being together with him.”
What Mu Siyin said shook Lu Jingchen to his core. With a loud screech, he stopped the car by the side of the road and looked at her in disbelief. “Yinyin, unless… Do you want to follow Cousin Siyun’s footsteps too?”
A ‘boom’ rang in Mu Siyin’s head. She looked at Lu Jingchen in complete shock as her voice hardened. “Cuz… So you think my sister was that kind of person too?”
She had forgotten about the incidents of the past. Li Tongzhi had always called her sister a homewrecker. However, Mu Siyin did not buy it, and Lu Jingchen had never mentioned this to her either.
She could not accept nor believe it.
Lu Jingchen took a few deep breaths before he whispered, “I’m sorry. I should watch what I say.”
Nevertheless, Mu Siyin was not going to give in. She tugged the hem of his sleeves and asked anxiously, “Tell me, Cuz. What happened back then? What did my sister do? Why are they condemning her even after her death?”
Mu Siyin desperately wanted to know the answer.
Lu Jingchen restarted the engine, trying to avoid the topic. “I was young at that time. I’m not sure either.”
As if Mu Siyin would believe his words!
“Then why did you say that I’m following my sister’s path?”
Lu Jingchen felt helpless. “Just come with me to the Old Master’s birthday. I’ll tell you everything I know after that.”
Mu Siyin had no choice but to oblige.
After dressing up with Lu Jingchen, they headed towards Old Master Shi’s birthday.
Old Master Shi’s birthday celebration was held in the Shi Manor. There were a lot of guests, and they were all from the most esteemed families in the capital.
A red carpet extended from the elegant and luxurious gates, across the yard, and ended before the building.
Mu Siyin sat in the car as she looked at the buildings and pavilions in the yard. As her eyes scanned through the grass on the lawn, she began to feel emotional.
This was the place he lived in. It was so exquisite and glamorous that it would make passers-by stop and take in the surroundings.
In order to disguise her identity, Mu Siyin got the hairstylist to put up her hair. After all, her black hair was too eye-catching. A veil covered her forehead, showing little of the eyebrow above her left eye. With the black tube dress on her, she looked both mysterious and gorgeous, like an Angel of the Night.
