Chapter 181: Leave Them To Me
“Young Master Lin is here too.”
“Lin Jingxuan?” Ye Erruo opened her mouth.
“That’s right, Madam.”
“You can all take your leave now.”
The servants instantly retreated from the room.
“I hope you won’t touch Lin Jingxuan and Gu Feirou.”
Mo Jiangye’s orbs darkened as he retorted sarcastically, “Why not? Is it because you can’t bear to see him hurt?”
The woman wrapped her arms around his waist with a sigh. “What makes you think so?”
“I want you to leave them to me.”
Lin Jingxuan had been making big money recently. Tens of millions of yuan had been rolling into his account daily. He was going to be rich!
However, did he really think that no one knew what was going on? The man had realized that he would not get his hand on the inheritance and had thus been secretly plotting to come up with other means of survival. As he made a show of fighting over family power, he was getting more and more involved in illicit affairs every day.
Regardless of his real intentions with Gu Feirou, her royal status had benefited him indeed. If that woman were to use her royal status to lend him weight at Lin Teng, then Mo Jiangye would be in for a fight.
Nevertheless, she trusted her man’s capability. Even with the Blue Tower’s support, his enemy only had a slim chance of wrangling Ling Teng away from him. He had a five-percent chance of success. Yes, that was how slim the possibility was!
Otherwise, Ling Jingxuan would not have had to make alternative plans to earn money through illegal means…
The only problem was, his alternative money-making scheme was digging his own grave. Very soon, she would be able to make him infamous.
In her past life, this man had joined forces with an underground mob to commit homicide and had walked away from this affair with hundreds of millions in remuneration.
At the time, that group of people had helped his power struggle against Mo Jiangye a lot too. How could she forget that?
Hence, she had instructed her senior to keep tabs on his accounts long ago. Ji Sichen was meant to report any unusual activities and, sure enough, the recent findings had attested to her suspicion.
After they had dinner, Mo Jiangye retired early. He was busy working on his laptop that day. In fact, other than when he ate, he spent most of his time hitting away on his keyboard.
He was supposed to wrap up some important business at the Blue Tower. He had cut short his trip too abruptly, however, so he could only resolve the remaining issues through telecommuting.
There were two machines on his desk. If he wasn’t having a teleconference, he would be busy working on the other machine.
His original plan was to continue working in his study, but for some strange reason, he ended up in their bedroom instead.
By making up an excuse about needing a post-dinner walk to aid digestion, she went to play with Red Bean for a while. By the time she returned to the bedroom, it was past nine o’clock. He was having a video-conference when she walked in, so she quietly sneaked into the bathroom to have a shower. His notebook was still ringing when she came out of the bathroom.
She dried her hair with a towel as she headed for the dressing table. When she heard him utter a string of English words that rendered her clueless, she could not help turning her head over her shoulder to catch a glimpse of him in action. His unique voice was especially sexy when he spouted English, and he looked so manly when he was working.
He sensed her staring at him and looked up to meet her gaze. “Come over here.”
A puzzled look crossed her face.
He then turned the laptop screen to face another direction before he said something into the machine. Somebody uttered an answer in English.
With the hairdryer in hand, he wiped her hair with the towel while skillfully blowdrying it at the same time. “Who told you to wash your hair? You have already washed it twice today!”
A familiar voice was heard from the laptop out of the blue. She turned to look at the notebook beside them.
