In fact, the way that Hua Wenfeng treated Mo Ting was not the way a mother would normally treat their son; it was almost like he was her enemy.
The noble king-like Mo Ting was expected to have an open-minded mother, but Hua Wenfeng completely appeared like an ignorant old lady.
Tangning rode the elevator straight to Mo Ting's office. Seeing him with his head lowered in deep thought, she approached him from behind and gently covered his ears, "Don't listen to anything..."
Sensing the warmth of Tangning's hands, Mo Ting immediately enveloped her hands in his and placed them up to his lips for a kiss, "Only you would make me your main priority whenever things go wrong."
"Because I care the most about you," Tangning smiled gently. "I know this matter isn't difficult for you to handle. But, that's because your enemy is normally unrelated to you and can't hurt you. Whereas, this time...your situation is a little different."
"She can't hurt me either," Mo Ting's amber eyes emitted a piercing coldness. He then dragged Tangning over to the sofa and said calmly, "To be honest, I haven't spent much time with my mother. She has always been against the idea of me taking over Hai Rui from grandfather."
"Actually, her surname was previously Bei, but she changed it to Hua later on because of a disagreement with her father. However, only those involved know what the reason was."
"She has been flying around the world for research ever since I was 10 years old. So, my understanding of her is at the level of an average friend - or sometimes even worse."
"Although she was against me taking over Hai Rui, protection from the Mo Family forced her to turn a blind eye. So, all these years, my relationship with her has only been a superficial relationship between a mother and son."
Tangning's curiosity grew as she stared at Mo Ting, "Then...why does she dislike actors so much?"
"Actually, in the early days, although she didn't like the idea of me taking over Hai Rui, she never hated actors to this extent. She even had a few arguments with me because of it. So, I was planning to get Lu Che to investigate when things began to change. There was just a slight delay today, so he didn't get the chance to leave yet," Mo Ting explained.
In other words, Mo Ting was quite clueless when it came to Hua Wenfeng.
"OK, as long as this matter hasn't hurt you, then it's all good. However, our current situation..."
"Don't worry, leave it with me," Mo Ting assured. "Just give me a bit of time."
"I've said it before, it's not that I'm worried you won't be able to resolve it, I'm just worried that you won't have the heart to make a move..." She was, after all, his mother, so Tangning could completely understand his predicament. After all, she had suffered many times in the past because of Xia Yuling; she could relate to being dragged down by family and the pain associated with it.
But, would Mo Ting really not have the heart to make a move?
Mo Ting had never felt that it would be an issue.
During this time, Elder Mo made a phone call to show his concern. Mo Ting was busy with PR, so Tangning answered the phone on his behalf.
As soon as Elder Mo heard Tangning's voice, he said, "Ignore that crazy woman. No matter how evil a tiger is, it would never eat it's own child. That woman is ridiculous."
It was reasonable for Elder Mo to be angry. After all, Hua Wenfeng had completely destroyed the reputation of both the Mo Family and Tang Family.
"Grandfather, don't worry, Mo Ting will know what to do..."
"But, your family was implicated for no reason." Elder Mo sighed, "Wenfeng wasn't like this in the past. I wonder when things began to change."
After hearing that Mo Ting would handle the matter, Elder Mo decided to hang up the phone. However, Tangning noticed the meaning behind Elder Mo's words and quickly held him back, "Grandfather, wait!"
"What is it?"
"Can you tell me a few things about mom's past?" Tangning almost forgot that Elder Mo probably knew Hua Wenfeng the best.
"The past? She used to be very understanding. But now...she's probably going through menopause!"
Tangning did not ask any further nor did she continue chatting to Elder Mo. She had figured by now that the doubts she had in her head were the same unsolved mysteries that Mo Ting had.
Another big piece of entertainment news was released in Beijing, and the person that revealed it was Mo Ting's mother. The internet was filled with heated discussions; everyone wanted to know if Hua Wenfeng's words were true.
An Zihao made a phone call to question Tangning, but Tangning reassured him not to worry. So, he returned to his search for the girl named Xiao Ye.
Perhaps it was because she felt guilty about hitting An Zihao, when An Zihao returned to the same spot where they had last met, the girl did not make an appearance at all.
Afterwards, An Zihao went to search under the bridge and did a bit of asking around, but he still had no way of meeting her again.
An Zihao assumed, since this girl was so smart, she must be watching his every move from a safe distance. So, he pretended to leave, but waited in his car for one hour. Afterwards, he returned to the girl's stall and found her there as expected. However, the girl looked at An Zihao like he was a ghost and quickly ran away.
An Zihao responded by chasing after her. However, after a good few kilometers, when both parties were all puffed out, An Zihao suddenly questioned, "Why are you running?"
"I hit you before. If I don't run, I'll end up being chased. I'm not crazy," the girl held onto her hip as she kept a 2 meter distance from An Zihao. "How about this, I'll help you fix any dislocated bones and help you massage the spot where I hit you."
"Fine. As long as you stop running," An Zihao replied as he held his chest.
"Let's find a place to sit down peacefully then," the girl suggested cautiously.
So, the two came to a compromise and returned to the stall. However, just as An Zihao sat down, the girl hit him once again; not on the face this time, but on his neck...
As soon as An Zihao collapsed on the ground, the girl immediately pushed her cart and escaped.
Afterwards, the same passerby helped him up, "Rascal, I told you not to provoke Xiao Ye. Why didn't you listen to me?"
"Would auntie happen to know where she lives?"
The old lady looked at An Zihao in shock as she responded with a stutter, "What are you planning to do?"
Of course, he was going to do what he should. He had been hit by the brat twice, so he wasn't going to give up until he found her.
An Zihao did not waste his breath explaining himself, he simply handed the old lady some money.
As soon as the lady saw An Zihao's 'sincerity', she immediately sold out Xiao Ye...
However, An Zihao had no idea that taking this step would change his entire life...
