Chapter 1085 I Want Mu Sijue Dead as Well (2)
In this way, Kang Ruicheng had actually gained something.
However, his actions had failed, which was an undeniable fact.
He had carefully arranged it for such a long time, but he couldn’t hurt Mu Sijue at all.
Kang Ruicheng punched on the solid wooden table again, and the place where his joints were connected instantly turned red while there were even bright red blood stains on the skin.
Even so, the resentment in his heart could not be relieved.
“Since I’ve failed to kill Mu Sijue this time, I will kill him with my hands next time!”
The scene in the courtyard was completely different from the scene inside the house.
It was the first time for Mumu to spend the Spring Festival, so she was full of excitement. As soon as it was dark, she took Xu Youning to the yard to set off fireworks.
Back when he lived in country A for a few years, his daily life was dull.
Before returning to the country, he had never seen fireworks, but this time he could light them himself.
Looking at the beautiful flowers blooming in the night sky, the little boy was so excited that he screamed.
“This is amazing! Auntie Youning, I want to stay here and spend the Spring Festival every year!”
Compared with Mumu’s excitement, Xu Youning was only calm in her heart.
However, things weren’t the same in the past.
During these years abroad, although she didn’t often return to the country, she would come back before the Spring Festival every year to spend the holiday with her grandmother.
For her, the Spring Festival was only meaningful when her family reunited.
However, her grandmother had already pa.s.sed away. She could no longer reunite with her grandmother.
If Mumu hadn’t been so excited, Xu Youning would have been worried during this New Year.
She was worried about Mu Sijue.
Kang Ruicheng had already said that he would take action today, and it was aimed at Mu Sijue.
If she remembered correctly, Mu Sijue was going to attend Shen Yuechuan and Xiao Yunyun’s wedding. If he didn’t take precautions, he would inevitably get hurt or even die.
After noon, Xu Youning kept comforting herself that she had to believe in Mu Sijue.
No matter how fierce Kang Ruicheng was, Mu Sijue was not that easy to deal with. As long as he reacted, it would not be so easy for Kang Ruicheng to hurt him.
“Mu Sijue will be fine!”
Until it was dark, Kang Ruicheng still hadn’t made a move yet.
Xu Youning vaguely guessed that Kang Ruicheng’s action should be arranged in the evening.
As expected, Ah Guang rushed in just now.
Judging from his posture, he must have brought some bad news.
Frankly speaking, Xu Youning breathed a sigh of relief.
If Kang Ruicheng had bad news, it would mean good news for Mu Sijue, which would mean good news for her as well.
Only Mumu felt confused.
The little boy tugged at Xu Youning’s hand and said, “Auntie Youning, what’s wrong with Daddy and Uncle Dongzi? Their expressions are so scary!”
Xu Youning didn’t intend to tell the little boy the truth. She said lightly, “They have some work to discuss. We can just play by ourselves. Don’t worry about them!”
Mumu tilted his head, blinked his big black eyes, and asked, “Is it something very serious?”
Xu Youning shook her head and said, “Well… I’m sorry. I don’t know about that either.”
She could only say that.
If she denied it and said that it was not serious, Mumu could be sure that she knew the truth and might not believe her.
It was the wisest choice for her to pretend to be ignorant and keep herself away from everything.
“All right.” Mumu pursed his lips and said cleverly, “I’ll ask Daddy about it later!”
Xu Youning’s heart skipped a beat and she hurriedly said, “Mumu, your daddy’s job this time… is a bit special. Don’t ask him! In fact, you’d better not ask anything about his work. Do you understand what I mean?”
Mumu thought for a while and nodded, “I see.”
Xu Youning stroked the little boy’s head and said, “Good boy.” In order to distract his attention, she continued, “Let’s continue to set off fireworks. The later ones will be even more amazing!”
After all, Mumu was a child, and he was always more interested in playing.
After Xu Youning said that, his attention s.h.i.+fted from Kang Ruicheng to the sky, and he nodded excitedly. “Okay, let’s continue!”
Xu Youning lit the fire, and the fireworks soared into the sky. They turned into flowers in the sky, which were dazzling and bright, rendering the night sky beautiful.
“Wow!” Mumu couldn’t help but exclaim, “It’s so beautiful!”
Xu Youning rubbed the little boy’s head and asked, “Do you like it?”
“Yeah, I like it very much!” Mumu looked at Xu Youning. His question caught her off guard. “Auntie Youning, can we set off fireworks together for the Spring Festival in the future?”
Because he liked Xu Youning, the little boy wanted to spend all the beautiful moments with her.
He asked that question subconsciously.
Xu Youning didn’t know how to respond to him.
She had a lot of things to think about now, but she had never thought of her future.
Therefore, she could not give an answer to what would happen in the future.
Xu Youning could only say, “Mumu, I also hope to set off fireworks with you in the future.”
“Well, I also hope so!” There was a naive smile on Mumu’s tender face. “Auntie Youning, you told me before that as long as we want, we can do anything! So, we can definitely set off fireworks together in the future.”
Xu Youning was subdued by the little boy’s strong logic and could only nod. “That’s right!”
“Haha!” Mumu laughed happily and pointed to the sky. “Auntie Youning, look!”
Xu Youning looked up, and a gorgeous light came into view. There was also a different kind of brilliance in her eyes.
With Mumu’s satisfied smile and the failure of Kang Ruicheng’s operation, Xu Youning could feel that this was a good beginning to her new year.
She only hoped that this good feeling could last.
Before long, Ah Guang came out of the house. After saying goodbye to Xu Youning, he left in a hurry.
Mumu sighed like an adult and said, “I’m so sorry for Uncle Ah Guang.”
“Hmm?” Xu Youning felt strange and looked at the little boy in confusion. “Why would you say that?”
Mumu explained in detail, “Uncle Ah Guang looks upset, so he must have been scolded by Daddy again!”
Xu Youning had to admit that the little boy was too smart.
However, since the operation had failed, it meant that Ah Guang must have inevitably been scolded.
Although the failure this time had nothing much to do with Ah Guang, Xu Youning couldn’t sympathize with him.
In the beginning, Ah Guang chose to work for Kang Ruicheng. No matter what he was going to bear now, it was his own choice and no one else could be blamed.
After a while, Kang Ruicheng also came out of the house.
Almost at the same time, with a bang, a firework bloomed in the air.
The bright firelight covered the sky and fell on Kang Ruicheng’s face, which showed his stiff and gloomy face clearly. The killing intent on his body was presented with the white light of fireworks.
Mumu was too familiar with Kang Ruicheng, and he was very sure that his daddy would become very horrible by then.
The little boy didn’t want to be the innocent one to be blamed on, so he subconsciously hid behind Xu Youning and said weakly, “Auntie Youning, I’ll protect you!”
Xu Youning couldn’t help but smile. She comforted the little boy with her eyes and said, “Go back to your room first.”
What she and Kang Ruicheng were going to say next was not suitable for the little boy to hear.
Mumu was very obedient to Xu Youning. He nodded, turned around, and ran into the house.
Until she couldn’t see Mumu, Xu Youning looked at Kang Ruicheng and asked in a confused voice, “Is there something wrong?”
Kang Ruicheng clenched his fists and gnashed his teeth, saying, “Mu Sijue was injured and escaped.”
Xu Youning’s attention was focused on this word.
Kang Ruicheng’s arrangement was precise. In the end, Mu Sijue couldn’t escape the attack, and he was still injured.
“Is his injury serious? When can he recover? Is he in pain now?”
A lot of questions came to her mind. Xu Youning couldn’t find an answer but found herself ridiculous.
Her worries were meaningless.
Even if she could go to Mu Sijue and ask him these questions, according to his character, he would only say that he was fine and tell her not to worry.
Having been with Mu Sijue for more than a year, she knew him too well – he was powerful yet arrogant.
He would never show his weakness to others, especially in front of the ones he cared about.
She didn’t know if it was okay with him to be that way.
Seeing that Xu Youning was lost in thought, Kang Ruicheng thought that she was worried about Mu Sijue. His voice became colder as he called her, “A Ning!”
Xu Youning came to her senses and her face turned cold. She said in a voice filled with hatred, “Is he just injured?”
Kang Ruicheng was stunned for a moment.
“What does she mean by that?
“She hopes that Mu Sijue is not only injured?
Kang Ruicheng asked tentatively, “A Ning, I’ve told you about my action today. What’s the result you’re looking forward to?”
“I hope Mu Sijue won’t live until tomorrow.” Xu Youning snorted coldly. “If I die of illness with him dead as well, I won’t have any regrets.”
When Xu Youning mentioned her illness, Kang Ruicheng’s attention was naturally diverted.
“A Ning,” Kang Ruicheng put his hand on Xu Youning’s shoulder and said slowly, “the doctors are trying their best to help you. I hope I won’t hear you say that again anymore.”
Xu Youning still wanted to say something. “I…”
“A Ning!” Kang Ruicheng interrupted Xu Youning. “You’re so pessimistic, which shows that not only you do not trust the doctors but also you don’t trust me!”
Xu Youning stubbornly looked at Kang Ruicheng for a moment and then compromised. “Well, I’ll try my best to be optimistic and think that I can still live…”
Kang Ruicheng didn’t know what to say for a moment, so he took Xu Youning into his arms and said, “A Ning, Mu Sijue has been hit by a bullet, which means that he is not some indestructible G.o.d. It’s just a matter of time before we end his life.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Kang Ruicheng held Xu Youning more tightly.
Xu Youning knew that Kang Ruicheng’s series of actions were just to test her.
