Xinghe was taken by surprise; she really didn't expect for him to suddenly say something like this.
Mubai looked at her sincerely and said, "I'm not kidding."
"What about the rest of the Xi family?" She responded lightly.
Mubai gave a confident smile. "When necessary, I can represent the entire Xi Family."
For her sake, he was willing to repress any and all voice of objection from his family's side
Even though she had no feelings towards Mubai but she was appreciative of his offer.
However, she couldn't let him do something like this.
Lin Lin would one day return to the Xi Family after her death. Mubai was the only one who would support him unconditionally. She couldn't let Mubai turn on his whole family because there were no benefits in that.
Xinghe smiled. "Sincerely, I thank you for your offer but I wish to approach this fair and square. Don't worry, I have confidence I will make your family give me Lin Lin's custody willingly following their own terms."
Mubai said directly, "My Xi family has a state-of-the-art medical laboratory. From now onwards, you are allowed unconditional access to it. If you need manpower, materials or information, do not hesitate to come to me."
"I appreciate it." Xinghe didn't reject his kindness. After all, she did require a good lab to work in.
Xi Family's lab was the best in the country, just what she needed.
Old Madam Xi was the lab's only beneficiary so its equipment was the best of the best.
"Of course, you're welcome to bring your own people to aid you," Mubai added.
Xinghe shook her head, telling him she would tackle the design alone.
Xiao Mo and Xia Zhi couldn't be of help because their skills weren't good enough for this project.
Furthermore, they were busy handling the day-to-day running of the company.
Xinghe handed the company over to Xiao Mo because she was averse to administrative work.
She preferred to do this alone. After all, this was not going to be a walk in the park. Without the necessary skill, any lackluster helper was only going to bring her down.
"I will go to the lab tomorrow," Xinghe said.
"Okay, I will have someone escort you there." Mubai nodded, he went on to describe for her the situation inside the lab.
Only when he stuck to the topic of the mission would Xinghe continue the conversation.
However, this topic quickly ran its course. Mubai tried his best to extend their conversation, "Aren't you a little bit curious why my grandmother is missing an arm? And why she is so adamant to have it fixed?"
Xinghe deterred his effort outright. "Not interested."
Why is she making it so hard to have a few more words with her?
Mubai powered on regardless, "That might be so but I still have to tell you, this mission doesn't only involve my grandmother, it is a permanent scar on my grandfather's heart as well. It is an issue that tied them together for life. In fact, I believe my grandfather will be willing to give you half of Xi Family's estate if you manage to solve this problem."
"I understand." Xinghe nodded. She had no interest in the Xi family's money.
Even though the amount would probably be astronomical.
The information itself though carried certain weight for Xinghe.
She was glad to know that this issue was treated with such importance by the Xi Family.
That way, her hard work would pay off lucratively.
It allowed her to accomplish her plan in one fell swoop!
The car soon reached Purple Jade Villas.
When Xinghe revealed her address earlier, Mubai was both glad and shocked. He had no idea she had moved in to a place so close to his house.
Of course, he wasn't conceited enough to think that the move for his sake.
It was obvious it was because she wanted to be near Lin Lin
