Chapter 374: Dear Wife, I Cannot Take a Liking to Him
After Su Man did a detailed checkup for Third Young Master Ye and Cheng
Anya, they emerged when it was almost evening. While he remained in the
lab and prepared his data, he had his maidservants lead them to their
The young kid was already waiting for them at the door. As the check-up
took longer than the one in Rome did, the young kid was extremely uneasy
and feared that something would happen. If Su Man said that there is no
way out, then nobody in the world would be able to save them.
When they returned, Third Young Master Ye’s face seemed pale. The young
kid’s heart sank and he quickly ran forward. As Cheng Anya was afraid
she would accidentally touch him, she ordered him to stay away. The young
kid unwillingly stood away and kept a safe distance from them.
“Daddy, Mommy, are you alright? What did Su Man say?” The young kid
was extremely urgent. He had waited all afternoon and his patience was
lost. While he knew the odds were very small, he only wanted to hear good
Cheng Anya did not hide anything from him and honestly replied to him.
Deep in his heart, the young kid was extremely worried but he did not
express it. The young kid tucked his lips and said, “We have the most
kickass doctor and the top virologist in the world here. Daddy and Mommy
will be fine.”
Third Young Master Ye confidently laughed. The calm the young kid showed
was like that of a general. When he recalled how Cheng Anya had to be
amputated when she met with an accident, the child did not panic and even
consoled Daddy Cheng.
“Darling child, do not be too worried. Do what you have to do. Since
you trust them, let’s go the whole ten yards. Whatever the outcome,
your mommy and I will accept it,” Third Young Master Ye calmly replied.
“Stop tensing up. It’s depressing, okay? Your daddy and mommy are
more likely to die from bad luck, so cheer up.” Miss Cheng waved her
hand. She detested her child having a tense look as it made her
In her impression, her son must wear a cute and elegant smile. Him
tensing up ran counter to her ideals.
“I know, I know,” The young kid said as he pouted, discontent written
all over his lips. “All that said, I will not allow you to leave me.”
Miss Cheng smiled and jabbed his leg without warning. She said, “Who
just said that the most badass doctor and virologist are here and things
would be alright? Why did you flip flop so quickly? Losing faith?”
“Mommy, stop seeing through your darling child this way,” the young
kid said as he stared at her. The little kid was clearly expressing his
Miss Cheng and Third Young Master Ye looked at each other and smiled.
“Dear Anya, Ning Ning, how about we go out for a spin later? You two
have not been to Riyadh, and Riyadh looks really good at night.” Third
Young Master Ye proposed. He had been to Riyadh twice on business, and
each time was so rushed he did not have the opportunity to appreciate and
enjoy the beauty of night time Riyadh. Its beauty at night had left a
deep impression on him.
While the gorgeous scenery was no understatement, a family of three on a
trip would also feel as good.
Save the trip to the beach, their family had yet to travel and they did
not know whether they would get to have such warm family times in the
He really treasured them.
“Your darling child approves.” The young kid broke into an elegant
smile and happily agreed. His big pitch-black eyes showed a childlike fun
as he said, “Su Man said that the local produce here is very famous.”
Third Young Master Ye nodded and gave his child a ‘good’ hand sign.
Father and son looked at each other and smiled.
Cheng Anya hesitated and there was a slight fear and dread in her eyes.
Zhang Bo’s incident was deeply etched in her heart, and the pain was
“We, in our current conditions, should not take to the streets lest we
implicate others,” Cheng Anya said. While she wanted to take a look as
well, the conditions did not allow it. Skin-to-skin contact on the
streets was unavoidable. The spread of the virus would have unthinkable
“You’re right.” Third Young Master Ye felt that it was not good.
Even though the streets of Riyadh were wide, things could still happen.
“F***! If I have to be confined to the bed from tomorrow onward, why
can’t I still enjoy today? Heaven is sure one damn idiot.”
Miss Cheng was stunned into silence.
“…Daddy, please be civilized and not be a bad example to your darling
child,” the young kid said.
Third Young Master Ye raised his eyebrows in seeming laughter and shot
the young kid a despising glance that said ‘save your effort’. He
said, “Got it. If you can flip the bird at Louis, how much more, or
less, civilized can you get? Besides, nobody in our family can feign
being civilized, so let’s just cut the act.”
The young kid stroked his nose and kept his smile. He seriously said,
“Daddy, you cannot say this. One’s image is still extremely
Cheng Anya looked at this father-son duo and could not help but laugh.
They were too cute.
“How about this? Let’s drive and not alight. If there is something we
want, our darling child could get it on our behalf.” Cheng Anya smiled.
“Darling, guess you will have to work a little harder today given that
your old man will have tougher times tomorrow.”
“Got it!” The young kid seemingly saluted.
Ye Wei and Mo Jue were having a whale of a time together that they went
missing the whole afternoon. When it was dinner time, Su Man came out
from the research lab to see the two of them coming back in style. Mo Jue
calling Ye Wei ‘wifey’ lifted everybody’s mood.
The two of them impolitely sat down on the seats reserved for them when
they came back. As the maidservants served their food and drinks,
Marshmallow, who left in the afternoon with a glum face, was now
extremely happy. His cheeks were slightly red and he looked very cute.
Eleven grabbed Ye Wei and softly asked, “You settled him? Did you
When it came to unwritten understanding, Ye Wei and Eleven were the best
at it as they knew what the other was up to without communicating through
their gazes. Ye Wei shook her head and said, “All is normal.”
Due to their unique identities, Ye Wei was always guarded against Mo Jue
despite her feelings for him that could have been love as well. As she
could not allow her feelings for him to interfere with the bigger
picture, threading carefully was the norm.
But, whether it was feigned feelings becoming real or otherwise, there
were some hints of truth and falsehood. Even Ye Wei herself was not
Let alone the people around her.
As she was not somebody whose thoughts were easily fathomed, people
should not presume given how confident and easy-going she was. This was
the reason why Third Young Master Ye and Bai Ye were at ease with letting
her watch over Mo Jue.
“Beautiful Su, how are my brother and sister-in-law?” Ye Wei happened
to be sitting opposite Su Man. As she looked up to see the person whom
she admired, Ye Wei’s mood instantly elevated.
“Good,” Su Man calmly replied.
The young kid said, “Auntie, you are already having a whale of a time
and could still remember my daddy and mommy?”
“Little kids should eat more and talk less.”
“Dear Marshmallow Uncle-In-Law, did auntie bully you?”
Mo Jue innocently shook his head and he really protected his wife.
“Nope, wifey has been really good toward me.”
Everybody mourned for Marshmallow. Any normal person would be able to see
how things were clearly not good.
Su Man mixed the food on his plate and his cold brows were slightly
raised. His gaze landed on Mo Jue, who happened to be opposite him, and
he found that nothing seemed weird about it.
The strange thing was how Su Man glanced at them many times. Everybody
else, save Mo Jue, was keen enough to feel it.
Ye Wei and Eleven were familiar with Su Man’s temperament, and that was
mentioned on the plane once.
Eleven and Miss Cheng could not maintain their cold and reserved stances
respectively since their imaginations were running wild.
Mo Jue’s looks would have no issues winning the hearts of both men and
women, and it was especially so when he had an innocent gaze, clear
purple eyes, and tender look when he was in love. One look was all that
was needed to tell that he was somebody who could be easily petted.
To see Ye Wei tease that out of him without growing weary was extremely
Everybody could imagine an extremely convoluted love triangle: Mo Jue
took a fancy to Ye Wei, and Ye Wei took a fancy to Su Man, whereas Su Man
took a fancy toward Mo Jue. Ye Wei had pursued Su Man for more than a
year. She was clearly coming for Su Man.
Bringing Mo Jue along ended up adding to her love rival count, and it did
not help that said love rival called her ‘wifey’.
Everybody was secretly wondering how sad and angry Ye Wei was.
As the young kid slurped down cold coconut milk, his pitch-black eyes
were whirring to life as they looked at his auntie, Marshmallow
Uncle-In-Law, and Su Man. As he looked on, he wanted to be as cunning as
Ye Wei slowly put down her cutlery and laughed gorgeously. Cutting to the
chase, she asked, “Beautiful Su, have you taken a liking to my
Su Man remained calm and his eyebrows did not twitch. “Nonsense,” he
Mo Jue innocently looked at Ye Wei as though he was afraid of Ye Wei
getting angry. He quickly put up his hands and said, “Wifey, don’t
get angry. Relax, I love my wifey and will not take a liking to him.”
Eleven looked aside in slight embarrassment. Her shoulders shuddered as
though she was maniacally laughing. Miss Cheng calmly adjusted the table
cloth and almost fell onto the table laughing. Third Young Master Ye’s
eyes twitched and felt that laughing was not the kindest thing he could
do as Su Man was the master of the house and they were merely guests.
The young kid, who was drinking his coconut milk, choked on it and
vomited in another direction. He was even coughing nonstop.
“Haha…” Amidst the eerie silence, Bai Ye was the only person
tapping the table in laughter. As an easy-going person who was cold and
reserved, this was the first time he really lost his composure. Su Man,
in slow motion, raised his eyebrows and turned to coldly look at Bai Ye
and calmly helped himself to a mouthful of tea.
Mo Jue seemed to have no impression of what he had caused and looked
around innocently to ask, “What’s with you?”
Ye Wei stroked Mo Jue’s head and felt reassured. Having been bullied by
Su Man so many times, she had yet to win once. To think that Mo Jue’s
appearance would put Su Man in such a tight spot.
It was very good indeed.
Seeing Su Man’s face change, albeit subtle, was gratifying. This chap
sure had potential.
“It’s okay. Marshmallow, well done. You deserve a medal for this.”
Ye Wei’s effusing praise left Mo Jue grinning.
“Wei Wei, you sure groomed him extremely well,” Bai Ye said, panting
Ye Wei laughed alluringly and schemingly. She said, “Beautiful Su,
please do not be embarrassed. If you consider giving me a kiss, I will
consider lending you my Marshmallow dearest for a hug.”
Everybody was stunned into silence.
The young kid was thankful he was not drinking anything. ‘Auntie, you
Third Young Master Ye could not help but emote at how his life was
complete with such a sister.
Miss Cheng felt that anybody whose last name was Ye was indeed twisted.
That was a realization she had from a long time ago.
Although Su Man still had a cold gaze, his lips curled up into a somewhat
smile as though the autumn frost had just passed. He sounded calm and
stoic as he said, “In terms of personality, he has a dissociative
character. In terms of age, he is of two ages. In terms of spirit, he is
not a complete person.”
Everybody fell silent.
Ye Wei retracted her smile and looked at Mo Jue. She said, “Have you
encountered someone with the same symptoms as him?”
“A few years ago.”
“How do such things happen?”
“How do I know?” Su Man answered indifferently.
Ye Wei broke into tears and said, “Beautiful Su, please do not be this
harsh on me.”
“I have always been this harsh.”
Ye Wei fell silent. Even if it was true, dear Beautiful Su ought not to
have been so direct about it. She was aghast.
The young kid was extremely curious. He said, “Su Man, Mo Jue was not
like this. I had seen him once before, and his difference was like heaven
and earth. He has been like this for days. When would he recover?”
Mo Jue was still as oblivious to what they were talking about.
Su Man raised his eyebrows and looked at Mo Jue. “I don’t know,” he
“Didn’t you say that you had a previous case?” Third Young Master
Ye curiously asked.
Beautiful Su said, “This is not really a disease and it varies from
person to person. I am therefore naturally unsure.”
Eleven was most concerned about something else. “Can it be cured?”
“I don’t know.”
“What’s with this perpetual ‘I don’t know’ response?” Bai Ye
Ye Wei nodded in agreement. A doctor who is perpetually uncertain is a
Su Man looked at Bai Ye with a cold and harsh glance. “If I ask you the
same question, I am afraid that you will never know the answer.”
Everybody fell silent. Beautiful Su, how mean of you!
Bai Ye smiled confidently and did not seem to mind. “This case of his
is not even symptomatic, so it’s perfectly okay to have no answer.
Since the scope of professional knowledge is different, let’s go easy
on the comparisons.”
Su Man tasted his tea quietly. He said, “Much sophistry on your part
Bai Ye laughed and calmly drank a mouthful of red wine. Everybody fell
The atmosphere was nothing short of creepy.
Ye Wei looked at Mo Jue quietly. Dissociative character? She had never
heard of such a term before. But that said, did it mean a complete
person? That was nonsensical talk. He was clearly alive.
