Chapter 2173: Weird!
Mu Chenguang was scared when he thought about it. If Wandou hadn’t heard anything in the middle of the night and did not wake up to discover the blaze, could their family of three have been burned to death in the fire?
That would have been a very likely outcome!
As he thought about the cause of the fire, Mu Chenguang asked again, “You said you heard some noise. Could it be that someone deliberately started the fire?”
“Yes, very likely. Because I heard footsteps at the time, and then someone threw a torch through the window.”
“Who could it be?”
“That’s hard to say.” Wandou had an impression that this had something to do with Mu Chenguang’s father, Mu Kangan.
Mu Kangan had always hoped that she and Mu Chenguang would not get along. Moreover, the Mu Group had secretly purchased the land in their neighborhood and ordered the residents to move.
Wandou suspected that Mu Kangan had come up with this plan because they had not moved away.
“Do you know something?”
“Are you saying that my father did it?”
“I’m just suspecting that it was your father who bought our estate, and he doesn’t want us to be together, so…”
“Don’t worry!” Mu Chenguang said. “I’ll go back and ask my father. If it’s him, I’ll cut off all ties with him!”
This was a matter of life and death. It was unforgivable.
After waiting for a while, a nurse came to inform them that two carbon monoxide victims had been sent to the ward and asked the patient’s family to take a look.
Wandou was feeling better now. She struggled and wanted to go see her parents.
Mu Chenguang held her down. “Lie down and don’t move. I’ll go over and take a look. Wait for me.”
He kissed her on her forehead before leaving the ward.
Wan Dehai and his wife were lying in another ward. Their poisoning had been alleviated, but they were still unconscious.
Mu Chenguang returned to Wan Dou’s place and told her about her parents. Wan Dou was relieved.
In order to make it easier for him to take care of them, Mu Chenguang had a discussion with the nurse and arranged for Wandou and his parents to stay in the same ward so that he could take care of the three of them at the same time.
The next day, the news of a fire in the middle of the night had already spread to the media.
In the news, the reporters speculated that it was because the Times Estate was an old neighborhood and the wiring was old.
Fortunately, most of the residents here had already moved away. The families whose houses were on fire had also been rescued in time. They were all sent to the hospital and there was no danger to their lives.
When Wen Zhehan was reading the newspaper during breakfast, he was shocked when he saw the news. He immediately put down the newspaper and rushed to the hospital without eating breakfast.
After he left, Li Mei’en picked up the newspaper he had just dropped and read it. When she saw the news about the fire and learned that none of the Wan family members were dead, Li Mei’en was filled with hatred.
It was really strange that they could not be burned to death by the fire in the middle of the night!
Wen Shiyu saw her father leaving in a hurry and asked in confusion, “Mom, what’s wrong with my dad? Why is he leaving in such a hurry?”
Li Mei’en threw the newspaper to his daughter and said angrily, “He’s off to see that little bitch!”
Wen Shiyu read the newspaper and learned what had happened in the Wan family. She asked, “Mother, did you ask someone to set the fire?”
“Stop talking nonsense!”
Li Mei’en glanced at her. “You shouldn’t shoot your mouth off with nonsense. I don’t know anything.”
Wen Shiyu quickly reacted and nodded. “I understand. I will watch my words.”
