Transmigrating to Before the Big Boss Blackened - Chapter 2
Shi Mu’s parents ran a clothing business of medium-scale hence their annual earnings were not small. For Shi Li’s health, Shi Mu’s father bought their house in the HuaDu district which was in the suburbs of LingCheng. This was a well-known villa area backed by mountains, the environment quiet. Despite being a little far, it was peaceful but most importantly, it was able to ensure the safety of each resident.
The sedan drove into the gate slowly and stopped.
Shi Mu got out of the car, raised her head, and looked at this refined and unfamiliar two-story villa, sighed heavily and followed Shi Li in.
Within the living room, there was a weird atmosphere.
The Shi parents were sitting on the sofa with gloomy expressions. Across them sat a woman in a dark suit with sharp brows. Shi Mu turned her eyes and saw Fu YunRui standing behind her like a little wife.
In the plot, the Fu brothers took their mothers’ surname. Later, the couple broke up, Fu Yunshen and his father were kicked out of the house leaving Fu YunRui as his mother’s successor. His mother was a vigorous businesswoman. Her word was others’ command was extremely strict so this lady must be Fu YunRui’s domineering mother.
Hearing the noise, the four pairs of eyes fell onto Shi Mu.
“Mom, Dad, we’re back.” Shi Li put his backpack on the table.
Shi-father was expressionless: “A-Li go up first.”
Shi Li’s eyes fell in her direction and a smile appeared on his lips. He said nothing, turned around, and walked upstairs.
In the big living room, it was only Shi Mu and the adults left.
“Shi Mu, how can you be so shameless?!”
Shi mother stood up from the sofa. Her palm came swinging towards Shi Mu’s face. In a short moment of shock, she quickly avoided it.
Her mother froze in confusion, she did not expect Shi Mu to have the courage to dodge her slap and became angrier. She raised her other hand and slapped Shi Mu’s left cheek.
The pain stung and tears spilled out.
“Did I give birth to you for you to go seduce men? You are a girl, do you have no shame? Even if you’re shameless, we are not!” Shi mother’s face was red and her body was shaking.
Shi Mu’s rebellious nature was not new, but her mother did not expect that she would have the courage to go as far luring a boy to go to a hotel with her, especially since the other party came from a powerful family. They were just small business owners, they couldn’t afford to provoke someone so powerful.
Watching this scene, Fu Qian’s mouth twitched: “Mr. Shi, Mrs. Shi, I will only say this once. Our YunRui is naive and easily deceived so it is partly his fault. But you guys have not taught your daughter well, that is your fault. I implore you to discipline your child and not let her harass YunRui anymore. If this happens again, I won’t let you off easily.”
Fu Qian glanced at Shi Mu coldly, her gaze full of disdain as if she was looking at an ant.
“YunRui, we’re leaving.”
Fu YunRui pursed his lips and his gaze was cautious. He bowed his head and obsequiously followed behind Fu Qian. When he passed Shi Mu, he stopped, “Schoolbag, I brought it back for you……”
Fu Qian frowned and raised her voice: “YunRui!”
He shivered and walked away quickly.
After they left, Shi Mu’s grandmother came down the stairs.
The senior never liked this granddaughter. With this incident, she became even more outspoken “This daughter of yours is a troublemaker, I don’t think our family can accommodate her anymore.”
Shi mother viciously glared at Shi Mu: “Scram back to your room.”
Shi Mu grabbed her backpack and left without saying a word.
In this household, she who had witch bones in her body and could see ghosts was considered as an “evil existence”, Shi grandma was afraid that the unlucky Shi Mu would harm her precious grandson and granddaughter. Besides not letting Shi Mu eat on the same table, she also arranged her room to be the small attic on the top floor.
There was one skylight in the tiny attic. The sky was cloudy and humid, the day hot and dry. The attic was next to a bathroom, small and cramped.
Shi Mu carelessly threw her bag on the bed, took off her jacket, and was left in her pink undergarments. Still undressing, there was a noise behind her. Shi Mu turned around, a bright and beautiful girl crossed her arms t and proudly looked at her.
This was her younger sister, Shi Rong.
“Shi Mu, you really brought Fu YunRui to a hotel.”
Shi Rong had just entered high school and was First District Middle School’s campus belle. With good looks and grades, she was the perfect student in her teachers’ eyes and a perfect daughter in her family’s eyes. But only Shi Mu knew how arrogant and capricious her little sister was. This girl took the words ‘rude and selfish’ to a whole new level.
“None of your damn business.” She turned around and took off her revealing shorts.
“You……” Shi Rong was about to fight back only to realize Shi Mu was completely naked. Even though both were female, her face still turned red, “Why are you so shameless, I’m still here and the door’s still open, why are you undressing!”
While speaking, her eyes unconsciously swept up her body.
Shi Mu was malnourished, her body flat so there was nothing much to look at. But she had fair skin so when the sun shone on it, it made people’s eyes dizzy. The prettiest thing was those legs, long and straight. With heels, she could open a Victoria Secret show.
Shi Rong was a bit jealous, she had prettier facial features, but her complexion was dark and she was short, not tall and slim like Shi Mu.
Noticing her in a daze, Shi Mu was annoyed: “Are you still not leaving?”
“I am leaving, who would bother looking at you.” Shi Rong turned around and left, closing the door on the way.
Shi Mu walked into the shower.
Hot water gently rinsed away her body’s fatigue. She then removed her heavy makeup and carefully looked into the mirror.
The girl’s facial features were sharp and beautiful, a pointy defined chin, high nose bridge, full eyebrows that were slightly raised, long narrow peach blossom eyes, and pale pink lips. In harmony, her face was seductively cold.
After becoming an adult, some people would say that Shi Mu was Ling Cheng’s must-see beauty. Be it businessmen, politicians, or high-ranking officials, they all wanted to get a taste of her beauty but what they reaped was unfortunately a bloody ending.
Shi Mu pulled down the hair on her forehead. The dyed red hair had grown a short section of black hair, which looked a little annoying. She pulled the drawer to find her scissors and cut her messy hair. After rinsing away the hair bits, the girl in the mirror with a short flat top cut looked like a cold indifferent boy.
Finishing her shower, the phone on the table vibrated. Fu YunRui had sent a WeChat message.
[FYR: Shi Mu, are you okay]
[FYR: Actually I didn’t tell my mother. My credit card is linked by her phone number, she found out when I was paying……]
[FYR: I really didn’t say a single word. Shi Mu? Are you still mad?]
Shi Mu typed: how much was the room.
[FYR: 248, why are you asking this?]
Shi Mu looked at her allowance, there was 48 yuan left. Just enough to get by. She was not spoiled and naturally not given a credit card. Normally, her allowance was what her parents managed to squeeze out of their budget.
Putting down her phone, Shi Mu came to Shi Li’s room.
After a few knocks, the door finally opened slowly.
Shi Li had changed out of his uniform and was in a simple clean white shirt, casual shorts, his stature thin and straight.
Seeing that it was Shi Mu, his eyes flashed with surprise. They were siblings after all and naturally looked similar, but with Shi Mu’s long hair now gone, it was like looking into a mirror.
She reached her hand out: “Send me 200 yuan through WeChat, I’ll return it later.”
“Return?” She raised his eyebrows, “Are you really going to return?”
Shi Mu was irritated：” I said I will return so I will. Are you sending or not.”
He sneered and shut the door.
Across the door, Shi Mu made a middle finger at the person in the room and jogged back upstairs. At the same time, her phone received a transfer.
[Shi Li: Here’s 250, no need to return.]
Why was this person so irritating?
Shi Mu quickly transferred the 250 to Fu YunRui: Here’s 250, no need to return.
However, Shi Mu had already blocked him.
The night settled into silence, everyone in the house was asleep, only the tiny light in front of Shi Mu’s window was on.
She could not sleep, her mind was more awake and clearer than ever. Even though she had just gotten another chance at living, many troubles were waiting ahead for her. Firstly, this body of hers was very strange. When she becomes 18, the Gu poison will take over her. At that point, her desire for men will be out of control. Originally in the plot to continue her life, the female villain even went for her own brother. Just thinking about it was insane.
Shi Mu frowned, her face melancholic: “System, what do I do if I want men?”
System: [Then you get men.]
Shi Mu: “But I also want dignity.”
System: [You’ve got men, dignity is irrelevant.]
……It had a point, she already had men……
and……no no no, she was a good young lady, she can’t let men’s chest muscles cloud her thinking.
Shi Mu grabbed her hair. What her Gu bones wanted was men’s essence. To put it bluntly, it was Yang energy. The reason this body had such fierce desires was that it had too much Yin energy, too weak to stay alive. But if her body was fed properly and full of Yang energy, feeding the Gu enough, it would not go around causing trouble for her.
She stroked her chin: “System, what would happen if I turned into a man?”
Shi Mu’s face was serious: “Then I can become brothers with Fu YunShen.”
The usually calm electric sound of the system finally became a little panicked: [Host, you……are you going to transition?]
Shi Mu really wanted to change genders, but this was harder to do than said.
In <The Dark Night>, the female villain was a heartthrob, beauty of all beauties, even if she just stood there, countless men would still leap at her. But the transmigrated Shi Mu didn’t want to walk this route. If she were to be a tiny bit careless, she would be eaten with nothing left. She had to protect herself and this little life of hers.
Shi Mu concluded: “Ah, since you’re so smart, why can’t you just directly make me male?”
She thought her logic was perfectly reasonable, doable.
