My Wife is a Beautiful CEO - chapter-554-guo-xuehuas-plan
Guo Xuehuaâ€™s Plan
Because her son and his wife were abroad for Paris Fashion Week, the
house was quieter these days.
But for Guo Xuehua, being able to take walks, buy groceries, occasionally
chat with the neighbors about the latest gossip in the neighbourhoodâ€”it
was this ordinary, common life that she enjoyed very much.
No burden of being the daughter-in-law of the Yangâ€™s clan head, or a
senior madam with personal bodyguards everywhere she went. Those days
might have seemed a very grand, but it made her feel tired all the time.
Today, she had passed over the operations of the charity orphanages to
the foundation, and wholeheartedly began a stay-at-home life.
Although the internal problems of the Yang clan werenâ€™t solved, as her
twenty-plus years marriage to Yang Pojun had fallen apart, through this,
she had managed to rediscover her eldest son who was lost for twenty
years. She still felt that the heavens treated her well, even if this son
was a constant worry.
Besides other things, a lover of her son was staying next door. Plus
truthfully she rather liked this Rose girl; after all Rose was more
thoughtful and likable compared to the icy Lin Ruoxi.
Even if she knew that Rose was from a gangster family, and was the
underground queen of the Red Thorns Society of Zhonghai, that didnâ€™t
mean she had to be a bad person, right? Guo Xuehua was no short-sighted,
Moreover, could Guo Xuehua still meddle in her sonâ€™s love life as a
long-missing mother? Even if she could, she couldnâ€™t bear to, so she
just turned a blind eye. If Yang Chen wanted to have two women in the
future, she would accept it quietly as his mother. Even if she felt
averse to it, in the upper class it was common for a man to have two
As for the daughter-in-law and the sonâ€™s lover, their position in his
heart would be determined by how they went about treating him. Of course,
as the mother-in-law she had the right to have her favourite.
With this way of thinking, Guo Xuehua would sometimes bring some tasty
food for Rose to try. She was more familiar with Rose than she was with
the main wife Lin Ruoxi.
These days, Guo Xuehua had discovered that in Roseâ€™s house was another
young girl who had a similar appearance and manner to Roseâ€”Mo Qianni.
After introductions, only did she know that Mo Qianni was her
daughter-in-lawâ€™s best friend and the vice president of Yu Lei
International, one of Lin Ruoxiâ€™s most trusted people. She couldnâ€™t
help but lament that itâ€™s true, birds of the same feather flock
together. In this case, very pretty birds.
The more she knew Mo Qianni, who was more mature and informed than Rose,
the more she liked her. Compared to Rose, Mo Qianni was a proud
metropolitan female executive, the best choice for a loving mother and
The headache was: Out of all the pretty women which surrounded her son,
why did he pick Ruoxi as his wife, the coldest woman who was the hardest
to get along with?
Conversely, for a mother, whether the daughter-in-lawâ€™s looks were the
most outstanding was not really a major consideration.
All this might just be a prank by fate. Guo Xuehua would have never
thought that the marriage between Yang Chen and Lin Ruoxi started with a
contract. But soon, their affections today had become blurred, and as
each day passed, neither of them no longer brought up that past.
Today, Guo Xuehua and Wang Ma had brought groceries home. Even if Lin
Ruoxi wasnâ€™t around, there was still the young Zhenxiu preparing for an
entrance exam. As adults, the two treated her like a young daughter,
preparing delicious meals for her whenever they can.
This girl had lived a pitiful life, and was more often lost in thought
ever since Park Jonghyun from the Starmoon Group had come, making
everyone at home feel sorry for her.
Just as she had placed the meat and vegetables in the kitchen, the phone
The phone seldom rang. Yang Chen and Lin Ruoxi didnâ€™t have many
friends, so half of the calls they got were not for them.
As Guo Xuehua was closer to the door, she went to pick up the phone,
asking who they were looking for, thinking that it must be a wrong number
The other side was quiet for a moment, and then came a soft, shy female
â€œPleaseâ€¦ please is this Yang Chenâ€™s home?â€ Of course, it was An
Xin. Her mind was in such a muddle that her voice trembled.
Guo Xuehua was slightly surprised, judging from the voice she knew it was
a young lady, and she was looking for Yang Chen? She became alert
instantly, saying seriously, â€œYes, this is his home, Iâ€™m his mother.
Miss, can I help you with anything?â€
An Xinâ€™s breath became quickâ€”it was Yang Chenâ€™s mother indeed. She
forced herself to be calm. â€œMadam, hello, Iâ€¦ Iâ€™m afraid I have some
bad news for you, Yang Chenâ€¦ he was brought to the police station in
the western districtâ€¦â€
â€œWhat?!â€ Guo Xuehua suspected that she heard wrongly, and said
doubtfully, â€œMiss, is there a mistake? My son is called Yang Chen, but
he is now in Paris, how could he be arrested by the police in Zhonghai?â€
â€œItâ€™s true, Madam! Yang Chen had returned earlier this morning, and
something happened at the officeâ€¦ and thenâ€¦ then the police came to
Near the end, An Xinâ€™s voice became low. She wanted to crawl into a
hole. If Guo Xuehua asked why Yang Chen was arrested, could she really
say directly â€کyour son was captured because of meâ€™? If Guo Xuehua
knew this, surely she would think that An Xin was no decent woman, as not
only did she seduce him but also bring trouble into his life.
An Xin became gloomy, but to save Yang Chen she had to continue
communicating with Guo Xuehua.
By now, Guo Xuehua had calmed down. She was no ordinary housewife, and
had many years of outside experience, alongside being born from a
prestigious family. Quickly she got the main issueâ€”it wasnâ€™t time to
investigate why Yang Chen would return suddenly and was arrested. What
she had to do now was to find a solution to the problem and not let her
son suffer at the hands of the police!
Of course, Guo Xuehua knew that Yang Chenâ€™s skills were not common,
difficult for even national secret forces to handle. But if he really
took matters into his own hands, trouble would only snowball.
â€œI got it,â€ Guo Xuehua said firmly. â€œIâ€™ll handle this matter. But
I would like to know what happened in detail later on. May I please know
â€œIâ€™mâ€¦ Iâ€™m An Xin.â€
Guo Xuehua thought,This name sounds good, her voice is sweet as
wellâ€”this must be another pretty woman.Frankly, as a mother she could
only say objectively that her own son wasnâ€™t very handsome, yet there
were many beauties by his side.
â€œMiss An Xin, Iâ€™ll head down to the police station later. Will it be
convenient for you to be there too? Iâ€™d like to see you and sort things
out face-to-face.â€ Guo Xuehuaâ€™s mind was clear. Something happened to
her son and this woman had calledâ€”their relationship wasnâ€™t an
ordinary one, so she had her own reasons for wanting to meet this woman.
The talk about sorting things out was just an excuse; if she wanted to,
she could have found it out from Yang Chen at the police station.
At once An Xin was apprehensive, excited, and fearful. She was glad for
the chance to meet Yang Chenâ€™s mother, but fearful for what if his
mother didnâ€™t like her? As a mistress, it was likely that she
wouldnâ€™t be in his motherâ€™s good graces, and maybe even criticized as
a trouble-causing vixenâ€¦
But An Xin was overthinking here. With Guo Xuehuaâ€™s upbringing, even if
this was what she thought, she wouldnâ€™t possibly make such heavy
comments to a young girl.
â€œAlright, Madam, Iâ€™ll surely be thereâ€¦â€ Even if An Xin was
afraid, she didnâ€™t dare to turn her down. Honestly, she hoped to see
Yang Chen released in the police station, otherwise there was no way she
could rest easy for the rest of the day.
Hanging up the phone, Guo Xuehua said to Wang Ma, â€œYulan, Iâ€™ll be
heading out for some matters, just cook something simple and donâ€™t wait
for me to return. Weâ€™ll wait for Zhenxiu to come back before making
something good for dinner.â€
Yulan was naturally Wang Maâ€™s original name. Wang Ma also knew that Guo
Xuehua had work to deal with on normal days, and didnâ€™t suspect too
much, replying with a grunt.
[TL note: â€کWang Maâ€™ actually means â€کMother/Madam Wangâ€™, which
shouldnâ€™t have been put in Pinyin.]
Of course, Guo Xuehua would never let Wang Yulan and Zhenxiu know about
Yang Chenâ€™s arrest. Once she brought him out then they would tell them.
After walking out, Guo Xuehua took out her phone. Although she felt, as
the mistress of the Yang clan, bringing back Yang Chen from the police
station was no big problem, to be safe she had to find out the root cause
of the problem.
The most powerful person she knew in Zhonghai was of course her husband
Yang Pojun, but she wouldnâ€™t initiate a call to him. Ever since Yang
Pojun acted indifferent when Yan Buxue insulted Yang Chen, Guo Xuehua had
hated him to the depths of her heart. How could she ask for his help so
So Guo Xuehua called her sister-in-law Yang Jieyu. After all, Yuan Hewei
and Yang Jieyu were in control of the Yuan clan, the largest clan in
Zhonghai. They were basically the bosses in town, which anyone had to
respect in one way or another.
Of course, Guo Xuehuaâ€™s decision had another hidden agendaâ€”Yang Jieyu
had a proud temperament, and was much friendlier than Yang Pojun. If she
knew that her nephew was arrested, even if she and her husband couldnâ€™t
rescue Yang Chen immediately, Yang Jieyu would contact her father in
Guo Xuehua knew that as a daughter-in-law, she hadnâ€™t done enough for
this old man, so she didnâ€™t dare to ask for Yang Gongmingâ€™s help. So
she thought of indirectly informing him through Yang Jieyu.
Yang Gongming had acknowledged this grandson and likewise felt guilty. If
he took action, Guo Xuehua didnâ€™t believe that anyone would dare to
touch Yang Chen. Although she wasnâ€™t sure of that grandfatherâ€™s
capability, but based on how the Yang family had risen in Beijing as one
of the four major clans despite their low numbers, she knew that Yang
Gongming had influence beyond that of normal people.
