Chapter 226: Sympathy Card
However, it was also because of that incident that Mother Mo had stopped being besties with Mother Gu. She even become estranged from her own family.
As a result, in these ten years, Mother Mo had only returned to her family once, and only because it had been her father’s birthday.
Who would have thought that the Gu couple would actually turn up at the Mo residence. It was truly astounding.
If it had been anyone else, they would have probably lost contact and cut off all ties.
No wonder when Mother Gu opened her mouth, her mother-in-law would directly rebuke her without the slightest bit of politeness.
She had been holding back her anger for ten years!
“Alright, alright. Whether this matter is over or not, it’s not something that could be expressed with mere words. Why have the two of you come so early in the morning?”
Mother Mo really couldn’t stand it. They were hardly on good enough terms to make small talk with each other.
She would rather get straight to the point than engage in inane chatter.
The little guy had already returned to his mother’s arms:
“Jiang Tingxu?”He shouted softly.
“Shh, let Grandpa and Grandma talk. Let’s go over there.”
Even Mother Mo didn’t like them, let alone the person who was hurt in the past. Jiang Tingxu pulled her son to the side, where breakfast had already been set on the table.
The hungry little guy swallowed several mouthfuls of saliva when he saw the steaming hot crystal dumplings on the table:
“Ooh, Ningning wants to eat.”
“Be good, you can eat when great-grandfather comes back.”
Over at the sofa, Mother Mo made it clear that the Gu couple couldn’t continue rambling. Mother Gu was still the one who spoke.
“Mu Ling, Tianhan, our family’s business has started entering the domestic market in the past two years, and has developed fairly well. We haven’t gotten in the way of the Mo family, right?”
Mother Mo didn’t respond. She had never interfered with the management of the Mo family, so naturally she didn’t know much about it.
Father Mo raised his eyebrows:
“What do you mean?”
Mother Gu told him about how her company’s projects were frequently blocked, their exports were blocked, and how the relevant departments often sent people to check on them.
At the end of her story, she paused and then continued in a low voice:
“That’s why we asked around and found out that it was ordered by the higher-ups of the Mo family.”
Father Mo and Mother Mo were indeed unaware of this matter. However, regardless of whether it was true or not, they would definitely not admit it.
“That’s impossible. The Mo family has never done this behind people’s backs!”
Mother Gu was agitated. It was Father Gu who held her back. Father Gu, who had been silent all this while, finally spoke:
“We hired someone to check. There’s no mistake.”
This kind of thing was not that difficult to find out.
Therefore, the Gu couple did not need to lie.
That meant: It was true!
Father Mo coughed, but his expression remained calm without the slightest change. After all, he had been in charge of the Mo group for decades.
“Mo Xu is fully in charge of the company now. Mu Ling and I are not clear about what you said. If you want an answer, go directly to the company and ask Mo Xu. He will give you an answer.”
Even though Mo Er was dumb at home, he was very intimidating in the business world.
He was very capable in all aspects. Coupled with the Mo family’s strong backing, no one dared to offend him easily.
That suggestion had already crossed the minds of Father Gu and Mother Gu. It was just that after they went to the company, they didn’t even get to see Mo Xu.
Therefore, when they heard that the Mo couple had returned from their round-the-world trip yesterday, they rushed over early in the morning.
Having said that, the Gu couple naturally knew that it was useless to play the sympathy card here.
However, because of the recent events, the Gu family’s business had been greatly affected. If this continued, their foundation would be unstable and it would be hard for the situation to be salvaged.
