Handsome CEO’s Darling Wife - Chapter 865: ABOUT HER MOTHER
Mu Lan continued, “You got punished because of your own sin. Pointing your finger at me won’t lessen your damnation.”
Mrs. Li clapped her hands. “Well said! You found out, no, it means that you knew it when you were only two years old. You were no normal child. You are your mother’s daughter after all.”
“You knew my mother.” It was a statement from Mu Lan’s part. She was still skeptical about the Li Family’s animosity towards her but now she felt that it had something to do between two women.
Mrs. Li smirked. “You can say that.”
“Don’t tell me you are a loser who lost to my mother again and again and now you want revenge.” Mu Lan chuckled.
Carlo, who heard everything from inside the castle through telepathy, shook his head thinking, ‘Savage!’ He secretly sent a text to Shintaro asking him to find out the relationship between Zhuan Shen and Mrs. Li.
The smile on Mrs. Li’s face disappeared upon hearing Mu Lan’s remark. She trembled and clenched her fists to control her emotions. She took a deep breath and said, “Xiao Lan, you are as sharp-tongued as your mother. She always bashed those who lost to her.”
Mu Lan shook her head. “My mother isn’t like that. If she was, I would be just like her. But I didn’t turn out to be like that. I only bash those who go after me. I guess you envied my mother and went against her. As a result, you made a fool out of yourself and she shamed you.” She smirked. “If I have to guess, I think it’s not only once, you tried to harm her multiple times. Is this why you became a friend of my aunt and gave her ideas on how to get on my nerves? You couldn’t touch my mother, so you pushed your hatred on me, her daughter.”
Mrs. Li covered her face while saying, “My, Xiao Lan, aren’t you full of ideas?”
“I’m not wrong about that, am I? When I came back to China, I happened to meet an old classmate of my mother. She mistook me as her but then we got to know each other. She invited me to her house and we spent plenty of time together to find out about her school life. I got to know that you never became first at anything because of my mother.” Then, Mu Lan said dreamily, “She is a true genius. I admire her so much.”
Mrs. Li’s expression darkened. She didn’t talk for a long time. The silence was terrifying. Even the wind stopped blowing as if waiting for something dangerous or maybe nature understood the importance of the moment. Mu Lan was still as calm as ever. She gave her time.
It was winter but the warmth of the East China Sea captivated the island. But now the atmosphere had become chilly out of blue. The sun was being covered by the black clouds making the island covered in darkness. Mu Lan looked at the sky. She didn’t notice when the dark clouds covered the sky. She was too busy to give her attention to Mrs. Li and Zhuang Lei.
After a few minutes of silence, she said in a low voice, “You know, you remind me of her in every single way. The way you talk, the way you smile, the way you look at me, the way you think; everything reminds me of your mother. The more I look at you, the more I’m reminded of her. It’s so frustrating. I feel disgusted just by looking at you. You make me sick.”
“Right back at you.” Mu Lan coolly talked back.
“Ahahahaha!” Mrs. Li laughed madly all of a sudden. It didn’t go with her appearance, however, it suited her. It was more like her real self than her fake elegant self. Just like she started laughing, she stopped abruptly. She looked at Mu Lan viciously and then smiled eerily while saying, “You angered me this time, Xiao Lan. It’s a good thing. I wished for you to anger me. I wanted to be so angry that I can use all my power to finish you.”
Mu Lan blinked. She heard some noises coming from the ocean right behind Mrs. Li and Zhuang Lei. Judging by Zhuang Lei’s expression, she was surprised and didn’t know where the sound was coming. She was as clueless as Mu Lan.
Mrs. Li screamed aloud, “This is your ending, Xiao Lan! You will die in my hands! Just the way I killed your father and mother.” Then she laughed evilly.
Mu Lan’s eyes widened. “…What did you say…?”
Mrs. Li screamed. “It was me. I’m the one who killed your parents. They tried to oppose me. Especially your father. How dare he get in my way of handling Saudi Arabia’s incident. However, he got some rare items and found a cure. Even when he was asked not to interfere, he did. That’s why I finished him off in the library twenty-four years ago. And then your mother, who was pregnant with your brother; I caused your mother’s accident. I gave your auntie some ideas on how to snatch away your fortune. She cooperated with me and didn’t let the doctors give your injured mother any treatment. As a result, she died as well. Then your auntie took you in. She mistreated you and you called for the police. You were as smart as your mother even though you were a child. We thought that we couldn’t go on like that. In my order, she sold you to a Japanese organization. We thought that we would never see you again and would drown in luxury. But your lawyer was good. We didn’t get a single penny. On the other hand, you came back years later. All we wanted to see was your dead body but every time you came back to life and ruined our plan.”
Mrs. Li paused before saying, “But everything is going to end now. I won’t let those useless fools finish you. I will kill you with my own hands and let you see; you and your parents are beneath me.”
