Wave after wave of the questions swarmed up to her. Xi Xiaye almost could not hold them back and staggered a little. One after another, sharp questions were tossed at her. In an instant, the hotel entrance had become incredibly uproarious.
Ji Zitong worked hard to block the reporters that swarmed from the front, but with just her alone, how could she handle such a huge group of them?
The two of them were instantly trapped.
Mu Yuchen had just hung up when he caught up with them. When he saw this scene, his handsome face immediately sank and his eyes turned cold. Immediately, he walked up in huge strides!
The bodyguards behind him swiftly rushed up as well while he pulled those reporters surrounding them away with one hand and forced himself into the middle of the chaos!
“It’s Master Mu! Master Mu’s here!”
“Master Mu, what are your thoughts on your wife’s affair?”
“Does this mean that your marriage has come to an end?”
“Has your marriage with Xi Xiaye broken down because of this third party stepping in?”
When those reporters saw Mu Yuchen, they thronged them even more wildly.
“No comment! No comment! Everyone, please move! Please move aside!”
Li Si, who had rushed over to report for work, had squeezed himself in too. He brought more than 10 security guards with him, working hard to yank those people away together with the bodyguards.
Xi Xiaye’s clothes were messy from the chaos as her beautiful hair tumbled on her chest in an unruly way too. With her pale expression, she looked quite miserable.
“What’s wrong? Are you okay?”
Mu Yuchen very quickly went up to her. Both his hands held onto her frail shoulders while his still, dark eyes were filled with concern.
Xi Xiaye sighed and shook her head as she fixed her clothes that were messy from the chaos. He helped her fix her messy hair while the reporters were still raising their cameras high and aiming them at the couple as they continued shooting lots of questions.
Mu Yuchen held Xi Xiaye’s shoulder with one hand and protected her in his embrace as he looked up with an exceptionally wary expression. A stern hostility was abruptly reflected in his eyes that were typically calm. He looked around to the vulture-like reporters, instantly stunning them with his gaze.
Li Si and the bodyguards, as well as the security guards, had already paved the way ahead while the car stopped right in front of them.
The flashing lights continued to come at them as they snapped their pictures. Xi Xiaye could barely open her eyes as Mu Yuchen held her tightly in his arms and protected her, yet his face was dense with the gloom of a storm. His eyes were filled with anger. He walked over with a single step and picked up the loudest reporter with one hand. Aggressively, he held him up by his shirt and almost lifted him off the ground!
Mu Yuchen acted swiftly, so the crowd did not have the time to react. In his arms, Xi Xiaye was inevitably surprised too. She was about to stop him, yet the man had already gripped his shirt tightly. The male reporter gulped and almost could not bear Mu Yuchen’s imposing demeanor. His legs went limp as he trembled and looked at Mu Yuchen who was looking at him formidably and with so much disdain that he was terrified to the point that he could barely speak.
He struggled for a while, and as his heart beat like a bullet train, he managed to force a squeak. “Master… Master Mu…”
“What else do you people do apart from speaking off the cuff to ruin someone’s reputation?” Mu Yuchen’s noble and cold face flashed with a mocking look. He had always hated people like these, who did not do proper work and report what should be reported. Instead, they liked to dig into people’s private lives. Instead of being skilled in such meaningless work, why did they not unearth the poor villages that had been drowned out and forgotten, and pay more attention to charitable work? At least, he would still have respect for them!
“You’ve caused such a storm with just a few pictures. I think that all of you are the real culprits of breaking up marriages! We are very much in love, yet you people keep going on with the slander. Why is the industry filled with people like you who have hidden agendas? Have you found the source of these pictures? Or did you witness my wife do anything yourself? All of you haven’t even clarified the situation before you recklessly reported and casually smeared someone’s good name. This is an utmost disrespect to those involved. I don’t know when did those of you in this line of work start having such poor work ethics,” said Mu Yuchen coldly before he let go of the reporter.
Xi Xiaye was the beauty who caused the general’s fury!
This saying was absolutely befitting to describe the situation today!
Mu Yuchen did not even care that he would possibly offend these reporters, yet once he criticized them, many of the reporters exchanged looks. They helplessly stopped what they were doing as well.
Mu Yuchen’s words really rendered them speechless.
“What do matters between us have to do with you people?” He flipped out protectively and then growled before he walked to the car with Xi Xiaye in his arms. She reached out to hold the side of his shirt as the crowd that tried to swarm up were held back by the bodyguards.
The driver quickly started the car.
In the car, he checked her all over again. Upon ensuring that she was fine, his tensed face then slowly eased.
When Xi Xiaye turned to look at him, she saw that there was still a seriousness between his brows. She thought about it before she said, “Don’t be angry, I… This issue of mine seems to be quite huge. Earlier, from the way you talked to them, they might write nasty things again.”
Once she finished, her gaze met with his unhappy and angry glare instead. Her starry eyes were stunned, then she silently lowered her head and did not speak anymore.
“Think about who I did that for! They all think that this Missus Mu is about to abandon her Mr. Mu. Do I, Mu Yuchen, look like someone who can be cheated on?”
When he said this, Xi Xiaye was immediately cheered up. She stole a look at his solemn face and chuckled softly before quickly shaking her head. “No, you don’t look like it! Not at all! I wouldn’t dare…”
Mu Yuchen shot her a look. He could tell that she was patronizing him!
He turned to look out the window. His expression remained solemn, but you could see that the light in his eyes contained a hint of warmth.
“Are you angry?” Seeing that he ignored her, Xi Xiaye carefully turned to look at him.
It was true that those questions from the reporters earlier had assumed that he had been cheated on. Logically, if he did not manage to find her that day, he and Qi Lei would have probably caused a ruckus because of her.
This move by the other person was quite a smart one. Now that Xi Xiaye thought about it, she felt quite fearful. However, he had unexpectedly analyzed the pros and cons very rationally. In fact, he did not doubt her at all.
