The first thing Madame Gu asked was not about Wen Jie’s health, instead, she criticized her. Hearing this, Ye Yuwei seethed silently. Wen Jie quickly stopped her before she could retort.
“Mom, I want Gu Juexi to divorce Ye Yuwei because I feel bad for her,” Wen Jie answered graciously after Ye Yuwei helped Wen Jie sit down.
“What do you mean? What is so bad about being a part of the Gu family?” Madame Gu slammed the chopsticks on the table.
“Don’t be angry, Grandma. That’s not what Mistress means,” Bai Yuyan said quickly, reaching out to stroke Madame Gu’s back.
“I am talking to my mother-in-law. As an outsider, what makes you think you have the right to butt in?” Wen Jie asked icily, with a tone that almost matched Gu Juexi’s.
“I am sorry.” Bai Yuyan trembled.
“Wen Jie, what are you saying?” Madame Gu was infuriated by Wen Jie’s words.
“Mom, am I wrong to say that? Or do you actually consider me an outsider, even with me being your daughter-in-law for more than thirty years?” Wen Jie said after Ye Yuwei and Gu Juexi sat beside her.
“Wen Jie, you…” Madame Gu bit back her words. She would not let Bai Yuyan fight with Wen Jie during this time.
“Wen Jie, look at the woman you chose for Juexi. She has always abused her power, bossing people around in the bank. She is a devious woman.”
“Oh really? If that is true, it would be a great relief for me.” Wen Jie smiled as she took a pair of chopsticks from Ye Yuwei.
“Mom, I have never argued with you all these years, nor did I do anything wrong to the Gu family. I just want to know what Ye Yuwei’s wrongdoing is.”
Gu Juexi was sitting next to Wen Jie, listening to her harsh words. Although Wen Jie had never been involved in any conflict of the Gu family, she was truly formidable to have remained safe and sound in the Gu family. It was a pity that Ye Yuwei had never learned this skill.
“She abused her power as the branch manager by rejecting the loan,” Madame Gu hissed.
Hearing this, Ye Yuwei’s pressed her hands against the table, about to stand up. Wen Jie quickly stopped her again with a smile on her face.
“Mom, wouldn’t she be abusing her power if she approved the loan without following the proper procedures? If she did that, Miss Bai can simply give us rubbish as collateral while we give her the whole bank in return.”
“Mistress, I am not…”
“Shut up. Don’t butt into our family’s discussion. Those who can still feel shame should just leave.”
Ye Yuwei was shocked at Wen Jie’s sudden retort. She suddenly realized that Gu Juexi had inherited his hostility from Wen Jie.
Bai Yuyan’s fingers subconsciously interlocked as the color drained from her face.
“Wen Jie, watch your words.” Madame Gu reprimanded in a low voice.
“Mom, did I say anything wrong? No outsider should butt into our family business. Aren’t you the one who told me this?” Wen Jie’s expression changed as she regained her calm composure.
Hearing this, Madame Gu’s face darkened.
Ye Yuwei could not believe what she had just heard. This was the first time she had seen Wen Jie turn hostile but admittedly, Ye Yuwei enjoyed seeing Wen Jie’s responses.
