Chapter 354: Untitled
For the first time, Cheng Anya felt dizzy from sitting in a
fighter-bomber. As it was nighttime, it was pitch black and she could not
see a thing. Third Young Master Ye flew the plane relatively smoothly,
and the bumpiness disappeared after a moment.
As she felt much more comfortable, she praised somebody and Third Young
Master Ye was clearly in glee.
He felt his self-image greatly elevated.
When Cheng Anya saw him gloat in glee, she felt the urge to troll him. As
they were flying at high altitudes, the risk factor from provoking him
and losing their lives in the process was too high. Cheng Anya, clearly,
was not stupid.
“There’s nobody pursuing us, huh?” Cheng Anya asked in a worrying
“Even if you do not know a thing, you still must have common sense. Can
helicopters catch up with us?” Third Young Master Ye looked sideways at
her and laughed. He said, “Relax. Get some sleep, and we should have
landed once you are awake.”
“What knowledge and common sense is this? Do normal people have such
‘common sense’?” Cheng Anya could not help but rebut. She was
indirectly saying that Third Young Master Ye, Ye Wei, Eleven, and their
ilk did not belong to her simple world.
This was a dark, yet extremely powerful, world.
Where might was right.
To say that everybody else was at their behest was no understatement, and
Cheng Anya sighed. Her darling young kid would traverse this dark world
in the future, and she felt unwilling as she thought about it. It was far
too easy to die.
For example, when flying a fighter, how else could one end up if they
were pursued by several others? Being superman was clearly no option.
“Look, your tough talk comes out when I call you stupid.” Third Young
Master Ye smiled. He wanted Cheng Anya to get some shuteye as she seemed
very tired. She, however, was unable to fall asleep and merely closed her
eyes and occasionally talked to him.
“Tell me, is Ning Ning…” Cheng Anya was about to speak but she
stopped. Third Young Master Ye asked her what was up, and she opened her
eyes and saw the pitch-black night sky. As she remained silent, her eyes
were as dark as the night.
There was a resolution and decisiveness in those pitch-dark eyes.
She seemed extremely skinny and calm under the light.
After all that she had been through, she felt that it was time she should
let Ning Ning do what he ought to do. Ye Wei had elaborated, both
explicitly and implicitly, that might was right in their world.
Most of them started training when they were a few years old. They
learned what they had to and strengthened themselves so that they could
make a statement in the world.
Ning Ning had probed her before, and Cheng Anya, in her brilliance, knew
that Ye Wei and Ning Ning were deliberately preparing her.
In the past, Cheng Anya would have been unwilling, but she had to yield
herself despite feeling otherwise. With Ning Ning next to her, he would
not learn anything. Since she could not stop her son from taking his own
path, she had to support him the whole ten yards.
She would not stop him anymore.
She, after all, had witnessed the cruel reality of the world where might
was important. Her darling son must remain alive. She would support him
if he raised the question again unless he changed his mind.
Third Young Master Ye could tell that she was thinking of something, but
he had no idea. This would save Ning Ning effort as he, in principle,
supported Ning Ning. While Anya was the obstacle, her coming to terms
with it was better than anything else.
“Where do you plan to go?” Cheng Anya thought about her darling
child’s situation and how he would leave her in the future. She was
already dejected and shook her head, not wanting to think about it.
“To Rome!” Third Young Master Ye said flatly.
“Isn’t that Louis’ turf?” Cheng Anya felt a little uneasy. Italy
used to be her favorite country, but mentioning Italy gave her goose
bumps as Louis’ association with Italy ruined her good vibes about the
That’s why it’s said that the image of an influential person has a
substantial effect on the image of the nation they are from.
“Relax, we will be safe,” Ye Chen smiled and said firmly. His ease
and confidence under the lights made people respect and trust him.
“Okay!” Cheng Anya nodded. “Are we able to contact the outside
“There is something off with the transponder. I can’t send a signal
out.” Third Young Master Ye fiddled with the settings several times. As
the system was more complicated, and since he could not spare a hand to
check, he had to make do. Once he reached Rome, ways to contact men from
the Dragon Gate were aplenty.
“Ye Chen, why do I feel so uneasy? It’s as though something is going
to happen. My eyes are twitching frequently.” Her intuition was always
“Get some sleep. You’re tired,” Third Young Master Ye turned his
head and said. As he felt that she was emotionally unstable, he reached
out and wanted to caress her hair. As he did it through gloves, it felt
But that was all that he could do.
Cheng Anya looked at him and turned, closing her eyes without speaking.
He was right. She was very tired.
An hour into the flight, Third Young Master Ye started to feel that
something was amiss. Rome, which was not too far from the Atlantic Ocean,
should have been reachable within an hour. However…
The displayed distance increased!
Something was amiss.
Third Young Master Ye squinted. After the airplane took off, he broke off
all contact with the control tower. Hence, there was no reason the
control tower could control the plane. Third Young Master Ye’s first
guess was that the plane’s systems were controlled from outside!
That said, he could still be making circles over the Atlantic Ocean.
He turned and saw Cheng Anya next to him asleep. She seemed calm, and he
could not tell whether she was asleep or not. His heart ached at her pale
and skinny side profile.
If the plane had been diverted from its flight path, it would mean an
exponential increase in the risk factor. What if…
While he had no qualms with that, he could not afford to take chances as
Cheng Anya was onboard.
As her life was much more important than his, he had to drive carefully,
let alone fly carefully.
But if they did not divert from their flight path, Louis would have
perfect information on his location and they would end up in Louis’
clutches when they landed at the location Louis designated.
His heart struggled.
Third Young Master Ye decided to take a chance!
He changed the flight path and did not follow the prescribed flight path.
He did not awaken Cheng Anya as he did not want to worry her. Once night
passed and the day arrived, he would be able to accurately gather his
Another half an hour into the flight, warnings indicating incoming
aircraft started to blare. Third Young Master Ye’s heart went cold.
Louis’ men were catching up.
He coldly smiled. Since Louis would definitely want them alive, he still
had hope. He coldly smiled and activated combat mode.
The plane suddenly tilted forward and Cheng Anya grabbed her seatbelt as
she almost slipped out of her seat. She was jolted awake and looked out
of the window in panic before falling back.
“Ah Chen, what’s going on?” Cheng Anya had some cold sweat on her
face. Gosh, was this really aerial combat? She wasn’t dreaming?
“We’ve got company!” Third Young Master Ye simply said as he
brought the plane to full speed and tried to outrun the fighters pursuing
him. As he was in the range of their radar, Third Young Master Ye was
unable to break contact despite his speed.
They were only out of shooting range.
Cheng Anya knew that Third Young Master Ye was nervous and looked back.
She only saw an extremely tiny red blip that was extremely far away. She
smiled and said, “Ah Chen, this isn’t too bad either. Dying together
“We will not die!” Third Young Master Ye said flatly. “No more
nonsense from you.”
Cheng Anya smiled and acknowledged. “Actually, it’s quite cool. What
used to be reel life is real life.”
“You damn lass!” To think she still had the mood to joke about.
As the plane flew, Third Young Master Ye abruptly lost altitude and flew
nap-of-the-earth. She was shocked at first look as they were no longer
above the ocean but above the desert…
Cheng Anya was shocked. What had happened?
Images of the desert bordering the Atlantic Ocean flashed through Third
Young Master Ye’s mind as he frowned. Could they be that unlucky?
With the fighters behind them in close pursuit, he lost altitude and they
followed suit. Third Young Master Ye coldly smiled as he turned and flew
into them. Cheng Anya was utterly terrified and nervous at what was
All of a sudden, one of the wings was damaged and the fuselage of the
fighter violently tilted to one side and rapidly descended. To Cheng
Anya, it felt like zero gravity. Her petrified heart almost leaped out of
her mouth. She suddenly lowered herself and hugged Third Young Master
Ye’s thigh tightly.
