Chapter 5: You Won’t Get What You Want
After Xinyi Fang said that, Yiyao Mu was depressed, a mouthful of blood stuck in her throat when she heard this today, that’s Kerry Ye, the richest and handsome eligible bachelor in the Sky City, why couldn’t they give her this opportunity!
“Venus Mu, don’t you be ungrateful, if you don’t want to get married then get out of here, don’t get in the way of others who want to marry him!” Yiyao Mu despised her, she really didn’t know why the bride would be Venus Mu.
Venus was already irritated, and when she heard what Yiyao Mu said, she got even angrier, “Even if I don’t want to marry, I won’t give the chance to you, it’s reasonable that he doesn’t choose you, you are not a better person as you only specializes in poaching other people’s home!”
“You!” Yiyao Mu was so angry that she even vomited blood and was about to get angry, but Changrui Mu stopped her, he said, “Venus, I’ll tell you the truth, recently the company is not doing well, we have no other option, if you can marry young Master Ye, our company will be saved, you also don’t want the Mu’s Group that had been maintained by your parents so hard to be destroyed like this!”
“I …” Venus choked up, her parents had died and her brother disappeared, she couldn’t manage the company, so Mu’s Group’s business was now operated by her uncle, although she did not understand the business, she knew that Mu’s current situation was indeed serious after she had seen the accounts and stocks, Mu’s Group was deteriorating every day.
Seeing that Venus hesitated, Changrui Mu sighed immediately, he looked helpless and aggrieved, “Under the global financial crisis, Mu’s Group might be hard to maintain, your brother is nowhere to be found. I’ve allocated millions of dollars to our America’s contacts to find your brother. I’ve just heard that someone has seen him and he was injured, I’m afraid your brother wouldn’t be able to come back if the group go bankrupt now!”
“… ” Venus bit her lips and rooted to the floor not knowing what to say, her brother’s whereabouts used to be erratic, it would be even harder to find him when he’s missing.
If Mu’s Group went bankrupt, not only her parents’ hard work would be ruined, but she also wouldn’t have enough money to support her to find her brother, especially the time would be even more urgent if her brother was really injured.
Thinking of this, Venus made a decision in her heart and asked, “Can he really help Mu’s Group?”
“Who?” Changrui Mu didn’t realize who was she talking about, then it suddenly occurred to him it must be Kerry, he nodded hastily, “Of course, that’s young Master Ye, ten bankrupted Mu’s Groups can get started again with his help.”
“Good! Uncle, I promise you! But my brother must be found!” Venus said.
Changrui was delighted immediately, nodding his head in a row, “Okay, okay, then I’ll go and make the arrangements, Venus you can go back to school, I will take care of the rest!”
“Alright!” Venus nodded and left the villa of Mu family. She simply had no other choice, she had Zihang Lu before, but now no one could help her.
After Venus left, the three families continued to eat, Yiyao thought of something and asked, “Dad, you really going to help her to find Tianye Mu?”
“Of course, how can I not help her!” Changrui was furious when he thought of Tianye Mu, “That little brat, when the old man divided up family property, we should account for the majority. He’s very young, yet he’s clever, he set me up, and he got our land expropriated by the government, so we have nothing. What’s good was his parents died young in a car accident, and he’s nowhere to be found, Mu’s Group now back in my hands!”
“Then why should you still help Venus to find him, should we return the company back to him when he’s back?” Yiyao was puzzled.
Xinyi Fang reached out and pushed Yiyao’s head, “How did I give birth to such a stupid daughter like you, Tianye Mu is missing, only the heaven knows whether he is dead or not, yet it’s even better if he’s dead. If he’s not, we have to find him first and kill him, or we could only wait for him to come back!”
“Exactly!” Changrui nodded and put a piece of bamboo shoots in his mouth, “If Tianye died, we have nothing to fear as Venus is just a girl, isn’t everything in the Mu family ours as usual?”
“Oh, I see!” Yiyao finally realized and smiled flirtatiously, she wanted to take everything away from Venus, but then she thought about the fact that Venus was going to marry Kerry, “Will it affect us if she married Kerry, what if Kerry helps her?”
Xinyi looked at her daughter, her eyes bursting with lust, “Ye family suddenly approached us for a marriage, we wanted to get you married, but they insisted on Venus. It doesn’t matter, you get on good terms with her when Venus is married and go to the Ye family constantly, behave well in front of young Master Ye, well… you know, men are the same, isn’t Zihang Lu falling in love with you now?”
“Right … “Yiyao suddenly understood and nodded her head, she smiled wryly, “Mom, I know what to do, anyway, I’m going to take everything from Venus!”
Chapter 6: Grand Wedding
Half a month later, the wedding ceremony between the Mu family and the Ye family which had earned much attention from the media before was finally going to be held.
Since the day Venus Mu agreed to marry into the Ye family, there were all kinds of news about their wedding on the Internet, newspapers, and television, hitting the headlines. Kerry Ye’s fame did have a strong impact on Venus’s life, it was unbelievable that a reporter even climbed up to the window of her classroom which was on the third floor, trying to burst in for an interview while she was having a class.
She had no choice but to go home on leave so that other students wouldn’t be influenced. She had been staying at home until today, the day of the wedding.
The wedding was held in the only castle in Sky City. The church was majestic, elegant and luxurious. But Venus had no idea of the details of her wedding, all the information she acquired was from the newspapers, including what her future husband looked like.
How ironic! She was getting married but had never even seen the bridegroom.
Venus was sitting in the lounge, looked magnificent in her wedding dress, next to her best friend Xinyou Qiao.
“Venus, I can’t believe this! You’re getting married! Are you nervous?” Xinyou said. Looking in the mirror, Xinyou got jealous as Venus, who was wearing exquisite makeup, looked like a fairy from the heaven.
Xinyou and Venus were classmates in School of Design. Xinyou chose Venus to be her friend only because she thought Venus was just ordinary-looking and could make her look better. However, now she felt that she was inferior to Venus.
“Hoo…”Venus sighed and said, “Xinyou, it’s just you and me here, so stop making fun of me. You know very well that I don’t want to get married this early. If it wasn’t for my family, for my brother, I wouldn’t marry a strange man!”
“Heh..” Xinyou twitched her mouth, feeling very jealous, but pretended to be calm and said, “Come on! The person you’re going to marry is Kerry Ye, you will be a rich lady and enjoy your new luxurious life.”
“So what? I don’t care about Kerry Ye and luxurious life. I just want to find my brother as soon as possible. If you like Kerry, go marry him yourself! Ha ha ha, I’ve seen his photo in the newspaper, he is pretty handsome!” Venus smiled.
“I’d like to marry him, but I am not as lucky as you are.” Xinyou snorted, concealing the jealousy in her heart, “You should just be a beautiful and perfect bride today!”
Kerry Ye is the most powerful man in Sky City, and the most eligible bachelor in this city who is handsome and rich. Countless girls admire him and want to marry him. Venus must have got stroke of luck to be able to marry Kerry!
“What’s so great about Kerry Ye!” Venus, however, thought differently from the others and twitched her lips, “Have you ever seen a couple who are about to have the wedding but have never seen each other?…”
Venus hadn’t finished talking, the door was opened from the outside and a cold and deep voice came through, “Wow! You’re so eager to see me!”
Venus was shocked and immediately looked over, then she was completely dumbfounded. Though she had seen Kerry’s photo in the newspaper before, there was a difference between the photo and the real person definitely. Right now, seeing Kerry with her own eyes in reality, she could hardly breathe.
This man in front of her, wearing a white suit, was very eye-catching. Venus couldn’t take her eyes off of him.
His eyes were dark and deep, like the blue gems in the ocean.
“You are… “Venus took in a large gulp of air subconsciously.
“I am Kerry Ye!” The man chuckled and said scornfully, “What’s up? My future wife!”
