He bullied her? He had merely given someone a taste of their own medicine.
Yan Rusheng snorted coldly to express his displeasure.
"Xuxu, quickly come and eat. I've cooked two more dishes for you." Mu Li pulled the chair next to Yan Rusheng, pulled Wen Xuxu over and pressed her down to take a seat.
She then scooped out rice and soup for her with enthusiasm.
Third Master Yan didn't receive the same treatment.
Once Mu Li had Wen Xuxu settled, she walked across to sit on the opposite side of the table. She picked up her chopsticks and smiled happily as she glanced at Yan Rusheng and Wen Xuxu.
Both of them were busy eating and didn't notice the ambiguous expression in Mu Li's eyes.
No matter how she looked at it, they looked really compatible.
Madam Mu Li was very pleased and sighed emotionally in her heart.
"Aunt Mu Li, your cooking is really yummy." Wen Xuxu tried a few of the dishes and praised Mu Li with sincerity.
Mu Li gave a humble smile. "These are just some casual dishes. If you like, you can stay for a longer period and I'll cook for you every day."
After hearing that, Yan Rusheng raised his head and looked at her. "Don't you need to work?"
She was barely 50 years old, she hadn't reached the age of retirement, had she?
Mu Li raised her eyebrows. "I've already divorced that old man and got half of his assets. There's no need for me to worry about anything for the rest of my life, so why would I need to work?"
Yan Rusheng was speechless...
Before you got the divorce, did that old man starve you or left you to freeze? Or did he not give you a sense of financial security?
"I think I should give myself a fresh start." Mu Li curled her fingers like an orchid and gently touched her face. Her demeanor was full of bewitching charm as she said, "A fine woman like me shouldn't waste so much time on that greedy old man. I should have started searching for my happiness long ago."
Initially, Wen Xuxu didn't want to interrupt their conversation, but Madam Mu Li's words made her burst out into laughter.
She spat out a mouthful of rice.
She quickly grabbed some tissues and apologized to Mu Li as she cleaned the table. "Aunt Mu Li, I'm sorry, I'm really sorry."
Really, she made it sound like searching for her happiness once more was an honorable matter.
In her heart, the divorce had made Second Uncle Yan seem like a housefly on a dining table.
Why was she remembering how Aunt Mu Li and Second Uncle Yan couldn't stop addressing each other as 'dear'.
"Xuxu, what I'm saying is true. Don't laugh." Mu Li looked seriously at Wen Xuxu. "A person can't be inflexible and stubborn. Be open-minded, so for anyone who didn't cherish you in the past, you should never take them back again. Even if he kneels or begs for forgiveness, you should never be soft-hearted."
As she spoke, her eyes shot a meaningful glance at Yan Rusheng. It was so swift that Wen Xuxu and Yan Rusheng didn't manage to catch it.
Wen Xuxu didn't think too much and asked with a smile, "Are you saying that even if Second Uncle Yan went down on his knees and begged for forgiveness, you won't change your mind?"
Mu Li threw her a contemptuous look. "Of course, do you even have to ask?" A good man doesn't backtrackonly a disgraceful man would.
She immediately turned to look at Yan Rusheng and smiled. "Third Yan, do you agree?"
This... meaning was too obvious.
Not just Yan Rusheng, even Wen Xuxu understood what she was trying to convey.
"Keke." She coughed twice and stood up with two dishes in her hands. "I spat rice on these dishes. I'll throw it away and cook two more dishes."
If Madam Mu Li were to provoke Yan Rusheng later on, she would definitely become cannon fodder.
She'd better hurry and leave this dangerous place.
"It's alright." Mu Li quickly stood up and leaned forward to grab Xuxu's arm. "Third Yan and I don't mind. Don't throw it away."
Anyway, she wasn't hungry. It didn't matter if she ate it or not.
