Mu Chen and Mu Lan were sitting under a big tree. They were enjoying the summer's sunset. Mu Lan had a watercolor coloring book, palette, color box and several watercolor brushes. While she was painting, and he was enjoying the scenery. It was very unusual for them to stay quiet for long.

Mu Chen spoke first. "You know, big brother is telling me to join the company."

Mu Lan didn't expect to hear that. She stopped painting and looked at him. Then she asked, "Do you want to?"

Mu Chen glanced at her painting. Who knew what he was thinking? After a while, he replied, "I don't think I will take the President position, maybe the Vice-President position. You don't have to worry."

Mu Lan chuckled. "I'm not worried about that. All I'm thinking is that you love your current career. Are you ready to let it go?"

Mu Chen looked at her in puzzlement. Then he shook his head. "Just because I'm taking the Vice-President position, I'm not going to let my current affairs be affected."

Mu Lan raised her right eyebrow in response. While working under Mu Liang as his assistant, she had a good idea of the company's workload. The higher the position was, the harder the work was. The pressure of work would be too much to be taking on another job. If Mu Chen took on the Vice-President position, he wouldn't have the time to act anymore. Then again, Mu Liang wouldn't give Mu Chen the Vice-President position abruptly, knowing he didn't have any experience working in the company. It's Mu Liang decision what he does regarding his company. She wouldn't interfere.

Mu Lan only said, "Suit yourself."

Soon, she finished painting. As she was about to show it to Mu Chen someone spoke, "I never imagined that you two would be together. Did the sun rise from the south?"

Mu Chen calm exposure snapped. "What are you talking about? She is the one who took my usual place, disturbing me."

Mu Lan snickered. "You are the one who talked to me about your conversation with your brother. I was silent at first."

Mu Feng who heard it, became curious. He sat down beside Mu Lan excitedly. "What did big brother say to Chen?"

Mu Chen flinched. "Hey, you can ask me you know!"

Mu Lan answered, "Liang Liang wants him to work at the company."

Mu Feng was surprised to hear that. He said, "For real? Why haven't I heard about it from big brother? He always talks to me about company."

Mu Lan replied, "I have no idea. You can ask him if it bothers you."

Mu Chen commented, "I'm still here. Don't think that I'm invisible."

Mu Feng looked at him brother. "We will talk about the company later. I came here to give you some news since both of you didn't have your cell phones with you."

"What is it?" Mu Lan asked.

"Mother wants us to go her apartment. She has something she wants to say to us."

Mu Lan and Mu Chen flinched a little, understanding that Mu Feng had no clue what was going on between Jing Sheng and Noel.

Mu Feng noticed it. "Is there something you two are hiding from me?"

Mu Chen and Mu Lan shook their heads at the same time and said in unison, "No, not at all."

Mu Feng's suspicion only grew after seeing them like that. However, he didn't pester. He would find out eventually after going to his mother's apartment.

Mu Lan asked the maid to put her painting stuff in her chamber as she went inside the bedroom. She met Mu Liang there.

Seeing her entering the room, Mu Liang came forward. He grabbed her hand and pulled her towards him. "You woke up before I came back."

Mu Lan leaned into his chest and replied, "Hmm, the smell of food woke me up. I couldn't stay in the bed when my stomach was crying out for food."

Mu Liang said, "I'm sorry I didn't realize it."

She smiled. "It's alright. I didn't mind at all. I know you wanted me to rest."

"How's your body? Is there any pain?" He rubbed her back.

Mu Lan nodded. "My waist…"

"I'll massage you right away." He carried her to the bed.

"We can't take too much time. We have to visit mother-in-law." She said.

"I know." He replied shortly.

While he was massaging her back, Mu Lan said, "I heard that you asked brother Chen to join the company."

He replied, "Yes, he will join as an assistant of an Administrator. If he works diligently, I'll give him a higher position."

She understood. "Oh, that's the case. But brother Chen thought that you will give him the Vice-President position."

He said, "If he does a good job, he will get the position he deserves."

Mu Lan smiled. She said no more about this topic.

Fifteen minutes later, both of them got dressed to go to Jing Sheng's apartment. They met Mu Feng, Qi Ying and Mu Chen at the entrance. Yan Su couldn't go with them since she fell asleep an hour ago.

The five of them left together in a limousine. The three brothers talked about the company and the two friends talked about various things.

When they arrived, Jing Sheng's bodyguards were waiting for them in the garage. They bowed seeing their masters and mistresses of the Mu Household and escorted them into the lift.

Mu Feng was excited to know what Mu Lan and Mu Chen were hiding. Importantly, there was another reason for him to be happy. He said, "It has been so long since we had mother's cooking."

"That's true." Mu Chen agreed.

"I never had the honor to taste her cooking." Qi Ying said.

"The luckiest one is sister Lan Lan. She had mother's cooking when she was sick." Mu Feng complained.

Mu Chen gave Mu Lan a death glare.

She smiled and said, "Why don't you pretend to be sick and stay with her couple of days?"

Mu Chen grunted. He knew that he couldn't do that because his mother was busy with something else now.
