1471 Great to Have You 31
Shortly after, the bawling Fan Mianmian was shoved into the car as well.
Fan Shixin's anger knew no bounds and he hollered, "Mu Wansheng, must you really make me do this?"
"Why do you have to compel me like this!?! Can't you just take Mianmian away with you? I must stay!"
"Do you really think I'd let you stay?"
"Yucheng is going to take things too hard and end up hurting himself! He has never compelled me against my wishes before and I did all of this out of my own accord. I want to continue living like this, I like living like this! Shixin, ever since I escaped the ordeal and became disfigured, I had already decided to give you up."
Tears streamed down Fan Shixin's face uncontrollably. Staring at her, he said, "Let me ask you, what gave you the power and courage to let go of me and live life with him? He doesn't despise you, but I don't despise you either. Mu Wansheng, if you had truly given up on me, why did you still give birth to Mianmian? Didn't you know that you'll forever be related to me once you give birth to her? Since you were so heartless as to give me up, why don't you give her up too? Why? Why!?!"
Mu Wansheng hugged her daughter tightly in her arms, at a complete loss for words.
Fan Mianmian stopped bawling and instead stared at Fan Shixin with reddened eyes.
Fan Shixin took a deep breath and exclaimed, "There are lots of ways to repay him for his kindness. I'm very grateful to him for saving you too, but that doesn't mean that I can allow him to share the same bed as my woman and replace me as my daughter's father! I was initially planning to make it up to him, but it seems there's no need for that now. He's coveting my woman and my daughter. Why should I still compensate him? Who's going to compensate me, then!?!"
He then slammed the door shut and turned around to stare at Tang Yucheng, who had heard all of his words.
Glaring at him sternly, Fan Shixin said, "Wansheng is worried that you might take your own life because of this, but I'm not worried at all. Your life doesn't belong to me. If you want to die, I'll send someone to take care of your funeral matters."
Tang Yucheng stared back at him and quipped, "Will Happy and Mianmian be happy about you taking them away forcefully? You're so obstinate and inconsiderate to their feelings. And you call yourself a man!"
"If I'm not a man, are you? If you're a man, you should have told her that she and Mianmian are free to go wherever they want. You shouldn't be tying them down and emotionally blackmailing Wansheng with the fact that you had saved her life."
Mu Wansheng alighted from the car and walked past the rear of the car with her daughter in her arms. "He didn't blackmail me, so don't come back here ever again. Stop jeopardizing our peaceful life."
"Mu Wansheng, I wasn't planning to tell your family about this, but since you've decided to be so stubborn, I don't mind making a trip to the Mu family home to tell them about this. I shall see if you can continue living peacefully. If you don't wish to leave with me, hand Mianmian over to me. If you don't, I'll have no choice but to take legal action. I'm sure you know which one of us has the ability to give her a better environment to grow up in. Besides, the judge will definitely make the right decision, especially since you're denying me the right to acknowledge my daughter."
She did not expect him to say that.
She almost fainted in exasperation.
Needless to say, she had no idea that Fan Shixin had already lost his patience and rationality. He would do whatever it took to get the two of them to return to his side!
Mu Wansheng said, "How about you go back first? I'll discuss this with Yucheng."
"Sure, but don't think of moving overnight. My people will be keeping a close eye on you. I'll be back again tomorrow morning. I hope to hear a satisfactory answer."
He then got inside his car and left.
She only just realized how stubborn he can be.
Mu Wansheng instructed Fan Mianmian to play on her own in the yard while she discussed the matter with Tang Yucheng.
"Do you really plan to let him have Mianmian?"
"Do you agree to it?"
"We can let him have her as long as it solves the problem, but I can't let you go. I wouldn't have intervened if we weren't married, but everyone in the village knows that you're my wife now. I've also gotten used to your presence after all these years. I'll be left all alone if you leave with him. Happy, will you promise that you won't leave me?"
Mu Wansheng nodded and said, "I won't leave, don't worry."
However, Tang Yucheng was still ill at ease.
He was out of sorts for the rest of the day. At last, he decided to visit his brother in the afternoon.
Mu Wansheng and her daughter were left alone at home.
She lay down on the bed with Fan Mianmian in her arms. Although she was young, she was not ignorant.
"Mommy, can I ask you something?"
"What's the matter?"
"Who's that uncle today?"
Mu Wansheng held her hand and said, "He's your biological father."
"Don't I already have Daddy? Why do I have another biological father now?"
"They're both your fathers. Your biological father did not know of your existence when I was pregnant with you. Without him, there won't be you. However, you were raised by me and your current Daddy."
"Why wasn't my other Daddy aware of my existence? Mommy, why didn't you raise me together with my other Daddy?"
Mu Wansheng had no idea how to answer her.
She constantly wondered if she had made the wrong decision back then.
However, she dared not imagine it. Although the condition of the skin on her face had improved tremendously over the years, she was still worried that others would get a shock after seeing her appearance.
She had not wished for things to turn out this way.
"Mommy, why aren't you speaking?"
"Are you tired? Do you want to sleep?"
"No, I don't want to."
"Shall I tell you a story, then?"
Fan Mianmian sat up all of a sudden and said, "Mommy, that Daddy is crying."
"What?" Mu Wansheng asked, cocking her head sideways.
"That Daddy is crying inside the car."
"Is he really crying?" asked Mu Wansheng, who felt as if a dagger had been pierced through her heart.
"Yes, I saw it."
Mu Wansheng kept quiet and closed her eyes while tears streamed down her face.
She dozed off soon after. She was then jolted awake by the alarm on her mobile phone.
Due to the fact that she could not see the time, Tang Yucheng had specially set several alarms on her mobile phone to wake her up and remind her of the time.
When the alarm notified her that it was eight o'clock in the evening, Mu Wansheng called, "Yucheng?"
There was no response.
She then lifted the duvet and got out of bed. She walked out of the room and called his name again but still did not receive any response.
