100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-196
Chapter 196: Untitled
The evening wind gently blew along and brought with it a slight chill.
The moon was high up in the sky. The clear moonlight illuminated the sky
above City A.
Third Young Master Ye stood on the balcony as he looked into the darkness
with a cold gaze. The moonlight cast a cold shadow on him. It was subtle,
cold, and something seemed to emanate from him that allowed people to
feel his coldness and brutality.
Louis’s words brought out the sharpest hostility from Third Young
Master Ye’s heart.
The man seemed to understand him so well to the point he knew what to do
to bring out the cruelest aspect of Third Young Master Ye!
Cheng Anya joined the young kid for a round of video games before leaving
the study room. As she passed by her study room, she noticed Third Young
Master Ye’s cold silhouette under the moon that gave people a chill.
Her heart trembled a little as she knocked on the door. Third Young
Master Ye did not respond.
Cheng Anya hesitated before limping into the room with her crutch. The
study room was more spartan as the mansion was undergoing reconstruction.
This was a temporary home, and little decorations were made. The room
just had a study table and a bed. Cheng Anya saw these and felt that
Third Young Master Ye, who had been used to living in a mansion, was a
little unjustly treated.
It was like the emperor who turned beggar overnight!
Her eyes dilated!
The computer monitor displayed photographs and information about Louis.
The stack of documents to the side of the monitor were all on Louis.
Third Young Master Ye had compiled a very detailed dossier about him
across the past few years.
To know yourself and the enemy is the key to winning all battles.
If not, how could one say that the person who understands you the most is
not your friend but your enemy!
He really minded Louis! Cheng Anya secretly wondered to herself. She
could not understand why Third Young Master Ye especially minded Louis as
he and Louis had no feud with each other and were merely collaborating.
As she limped onto the balcony with her crutch, Cheng Anya then put her
crutch aside and held the railing of the balcony. She stood beside him
and Third Young Master Ye took a glance at her. He did not mind her
disrupting his deep thought.
“Ye Chen, how is the night scene?” Cheng Anya asked with a smile. The
high floor provided a wide field of vision when one looked down. The
scenery was not too bad.
“Who has the mood to appreciate the night view!” Third Young Master
Ye replied plainly. His fists were clenched and his cold gaze was
obscured by the night. There was an unspeakable burden.
“At the rate you are standing, you are going to become a statue! This
creates a wrong impression that you are admiring the night!” Cheng Anya
replied plainly. He tried to touch his body. It was hard as rock and his
muscles were all tensed up. Third Young Master Ye was surprised, and
Cheng Anya smiled. “After being your secretary, I learned something.
Your body is this tense every time you encounter a massive enemy with the
likes of Old Master Yang and Old Master Ye. This time, it’s because of
Louis. Are you afraid of them?”
“What a joke!” Third Young Master Ye turned his head around coldly
and gave Miss Cheng his beautiful and cold side profile. “How could I,
Ye Chen, be afraid of those two old men and that sicko?”
“Then, you may be different from other people!” Cheng Anya smiled
plainly. Under the faint lights of the night sky, there was warmth like a
thin veil that secretly took root and grew in their hearts. “When I was
in primary school, I was a scaredy-cat. I had yet to come to City A and
my parents and I stayed in a fishing village. The children in the village
were especially barbaric and I would be bullied every day. There were two
bullies in class who would throw chalk at me every day, put worms in my
bag, and hide my worksheets… Once school ended, they would snatch my
pocket money. Living standards in the fishing village weren’t too high,
and the children would not have much pocket money. If they wanted to buy
something, they could only bully other children. I was afraid of them and
would take a detour whenever I saw them. My body became tense, hard and I
trembled in fear. Their long-term bullying created psychological trauma,
and there was once I dropped into the fields when I was avoiding them. I
returned home dirty and cried terribly. As our home was poor then, all my
pencil boxes were made by daddy using cardboard paper. Being good at
drawing and handicraft, he would draw pretty flowers on the pencil case
that I liked and treasured. Once, these bullies bullied me and drenched
my pencil box in water. I was enraged and took the cane from the
teacher’s table and whipped them with it. I kept on whipping them until
they ran away. When they ran, I doggedly gave chase and hit them until
the cane marks, some of which even bled, could be seen. I thought I was
mad, and I had no idea how I found the courage to hit people. As the
teacher already detested the two bullies, I got off with a few scoldings.
After school, I looked on in worry, afraid that they would suddenly grab
a cane and whip me. Who knew that they would turn tail and run away, like
mice hiding from a cat. Their parents came to my home to kick up a racket
and they kept quiet and went away with their sons once they saw me. From
that incident onward, these two bullies would detour and avoid me
whenever they saw me. Nobody in my school dared to bully me, and I gave
them this cold face that scared the kids so much they would give me their
pocket money on their own initiative.
Third Young Master Ye was stunned into silence. “How old were you
Miss Cheng raised her pinkie!
It took training from young to become a badass!
He could imagine a petite Cheng Anya projecting an image of a queen in
front of two chubby boys and scaring them into running away.
“You are good!”
Cheng Anya humbly accepted Third Young Master Ye’s praise!
“Now tell me, who returns the favor tenfold or hundredfold when he
encounters a beating?” Third Young Master Ye seemingly laughed as he
focused his gaze on the woman next to him. She was really…
Her concern was special!
Cheng Anya smiled and rolled her eyes at him in slight despise. “It is
little wonder you failed in school! You did not take away anything from
Third Young Master Ye kept silent.
What kind of teacher are you? Apart from such a badass like Ning Ning,
which other child could withstand your brutal upbringing?
“I am saying that you have to bravely face the psychological
traumas!” Cheng Anya said calmly with wisdom in her gaze. “They might
have caused you some degree of hurt, scars that permanently remain, and
you hence choose to live under this trauma. Actually, if you are brave
enough to walk out, you will discover that whatever they do does not
affect you. Like a pustule, recovery takes a very long time. However, if
you break the pustule in daylight, the wound will be exposed again.”
“Although it hurts, it recovers extremely and you do not need to be
burdened by the pustule again. Look at how you get anxious and angry
whenever Old Master Ye and Old Master Yang are mentioned. Why?”
“Ye Chen, given your position and abilities today, why fear anyone
else? Anger is an extreme response to weaknesses. Do you think you fit
