Chapter 406: The Wedding (Part 1)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
On October 10, the president of An Ning International, Ye Chen, married
his principal secretary, Cheng Anya.
It was an extremely grand wedding that was like none other. The church,
decorated by millions of roses, felt surreal and an intoxicating
fragrance from the roses wafted through the air. Cheng Anya looked at the
wedding grounds. It looked so beautiful to the point it felt surreal.
She used to hear a saying that went, “All fairy tales are merely fairy
tales.” He, today, brought a fairy tale to life. Having Ye Chen in her
life surpassed everything else.
She was satisfied.
As MBS International’s television station was the only television
station covering Third Young Master Ye’s wedding, there were no other
reporters on-site. Even the reporters from An Ning International knew
their limits. Questions that should be asked and those that were
off-bounds were clarified. Since they knew their limits, the scene was
not as chaotic.
Long Fei, the hall master of the Dragon Gate’s branch in City A, and
Number Six had men guard the four corners of the church. With eyes on
every possible dead spot, there were even more concealed sentries with
the intent of preventing anything that could go wrong.
Third Young Master Ye wanted to organize the perfect wedding. He would
not allow the slightest mistake.
In the bridal lounge, Cheng Anya sat nervously. She was already dressed
up in a gorgeous gown and wore the Rose Tear, An Ning International’s
crown jewel, and her immaculate looks made her seem like an angel who had
descended. She was so beautiful and people were charmed.
Li Yun and the young kid accompanied her in the resting room. Li Yun was
in a silver bridesmaid dress and was gorgeously elegant and unmatched.
Cheng Anya, in a bid to ease the tension, could only praise her gorgeous
wedding dress and make small talk.
The young kid laughed and asked, “Mommy, are you very nervous?”
Cheng Anya nodded. Like any other bride, she was naturally extremely
nervous. As she thought about how she would walk up to him later, her
heart thumped. They had already rehearsed the wedding ceremony in church
yesterday, and she clearly remembered every single step but did not feel
nervous. They did whatever the Father said. When she was walking toward
Third Young Master Ye while holding Daddy Cheng’s hands, she even
laughed. Third Young Master Ye said she needed to focus and gave her a
dressing down. He even evilly claimed that if she dared to laugh during
the walk-in the next day, he would slaughter her for not taking the
wedding seriously. Cheng Anya was thoroughly speechless as it was, after
all, a rehearsal and it was normal to be out-of-character. She, however,
would not be laughing today. She was extremely nervous.
Li Yun shook her head and could not help but jab her. She said, “How
unpromising of you. You’ve witnessed so much. Is getting married such a
huge challenge to you? When you first snuck into somebody’s wedding
banquet and helped yourself despite the non-invitation, you were not even
this nervous! This is no major setting, and you’re facing familiar
people. You are getting so familiar with your husband to the point there
is barely any passion left, so relax! Dear Anya, you are too stiff!”
The young kid tucked his lips and laughed. “Auntie Li Yun, if my daddy
heard what you said, he would definitely separate you and my mommy.”
Li Yun sure was capable of such talk. Cheng Anya could not help but laugh.
“What did I say to warrant something as severe as isolation? Am I the
plague?” Li Yun raised her eyebrows in immense unhappiness.
“You are getting so familiar with your husband to the point there is
barely any passion left. Is that something you ought to say to the bride?
Are you goading the bride into running away from the wedding? You should
not say that there is no passion anymore. This exponentially affects the
rate at which an emotional crisis develops. Also, based on my daddy’s
logic, you will definitely be classified as non grata. Mommy, is your
darling child spot-on?”
“Indeed.” Cheng Anya gave her own son a thumbs-up. There was no other
explanation that was even more spot-on than this, and Third Young Master
Ye’s face would certainly blacken if he heard it.
“Am I not telling the truth then? Your child is already so old, and if
this were a normal relationship, you would have reached the
seven-year-itch now. Being passionate in its first month is novel, but it
no longer stays novel thereafter. This explains why divorce rates are
this high. Young people sure are averse to the truth, and that explains
why divorce rates are sky-high.” Li Yun feigned shaking her head.
Cheng Anya laughed and said, “Whatever you say makes sense. I’ll gift
you the same statement, word for word, when you get married.”
“Deal! Save that for my marriage. That said, I do not want to be as
unpromising as you when I get married. Look at you. You are about to
break your pinkie, so stop twisting it.” Li Yun tapped her hands away.
“Mommy, who was the one who laughed at the scene yesterday?” The
young kid teased Cheng Anya. She kicked the kid and said, “Children
should stay out of this conversation.”
“Your mommy is getting angry from the shame,” Li Yun calmly said and
then touched her abdomen. “Given how tightly this is tied, would there
be any problem to the child?”
“I did ask the doctor, and it’s okay as long as it’s for a few
hours. Once the ceremony is over, a change of clothes should fix it.
It’s still small, so all is fine,” Cheng Anya said, motherly love
radiating on her face. The child was only slightly over a month, so her
bulge was still not visible.
There were steps outside the door, and the guards called Third Young
Master Ye. Li Yun smartly kept quiet and the young kid smiled. When Ye
Chen came in, the young kid said, “Daddy, what are you doing here when
the bridegroom should be outside?”
“Do you have a problem with me seeing my bride?” Third Young Master
Ye raised his eyebrows in laughter. Li Yun and the young kid smartly left
the bridal lounge.
Li Yun grabbed the young kid and laughed. “Your daddy and mommy are
really inseparable. Let’s walk around and take a look.”
“Okay. Oh, Auntie Yun, I have to tell you something and I will need
your cooperation.” The young kid raised his eyebrows and smiled
cunningly. He whispered something into Li Yun’s ears and Li Yun’s
eyes went wide.
“What did you say?” She was extremely shocked. How could this be
possible? “Why, my darling child, why?”
“Hehe. You will know in a moment.” The young kid mysteriously laughed
and pulled Li Yun whilst walking forward. “Let’s watch the show.”
When the two of them reached the front, the wedding had yet to begin.
Although not everybody was present, it was already crowded. Ye Wei and
Eleven stood in a corner of the hall and watched on. Nobody had any idea
what they were talking about or joking about.
The young kid went over and waved. Ye Wei exclaimed, “Oh, my darling
child, you look extremely handsome today.”
The young kid, in a black suit, was the flower boy. As he already had
delicate looks, his clothes made him even more delicate and cute. Ye Wei
and Eleven’s eyes lit up.
Li Yun said, “When he grows up, he will be even more gorgeous than
Third Young Master Ye.”
“Definitely.” Ye Wei stroked her chin and smiled. They were now at a
more visible place in the church, so they were able to see all the
visitors entering the church. As they were chatting, the manager of the
wedding planning company rushed over and said, “Miss Ye, we have a
slight situation. Could you allow me to make a change?”
“What is the situation?” Ye Wei frowned.
The young kid was no longer smiling. If a hiccup occurred during the
wedding, it was not auspicious. While he did not believe it, it was a cut
and dry truth.
The manager of the wedding planning company said, “The flower girl has
a bad stomachache and severe diarrhea. This…”
“Surely things couldn’t go that wrong?”
“Ning Ning, there goes your bride.” Ye Wei laughed. The young kid did
not seem to mind and calmly said, “That’s not my bride. Find me a
The manager of the wedding planning company nodded in panic. Whatever the
Younger Master Ye said was akin to Third Young Master Ye’s agreement.
“I already have somebody in mind. There is a girl of comparable age
amongst the visitors. Although the woman next to her did not agree, that
little girl agreed.”
As they talked, the manager of the wedding planning company noticed
something and pointed at the girl who was accompanied by an older woman.
He said, “That’s her.”
The young kid looked in the direction he was looking at, and his eyes
suddenly grew wide.
“Stone…” Xu Xing also noticed the young kid and wrestled free from
the lady’s grip before rushing over. She, in a white fluffy skirt with
lace edges, rushed to the young kid. She was princess-like and seemed
surreal. She quickly reached the young kid. She looked like Xu Nuo with
that surprise on her face. “Stone, what are you doing here?”
As Ning Ning saw her run to him, an image of Xu Nuo in a fiery red dress
with white Japanese camellias behind her flashed through his mind. She
did not have that carefree smile that Xu Xing had.
Even if his Nuo Nuo smiled, it was not a warm smile. Her smile seemed to
never see the sunlight as if she did not know what warmth was. But when
he held her hand, he felt that she was warm.
As though something gripped his heart hard, it was hurting immensely.
“You will not call me Stone.” Ning Ning suddenly ordered.
This was a term of endearment only Nuo Nuo could call him by and nobody
Li Yun and the manager of the wedding planning company were in shock. The
gentlemanly and elegant impression the younger master of the Ye family
left an indelible impression on others. They had never seen him get angry
or how his face became as cold as the devil. It left them in shock. It
was as though the child changed in an instant.
Although he was young, he terrified people.
When Xu Xing was barked at by him, disappointment flashed on her face.
She bit her lip in slight indignation. “I’m sorry, but I forgot.”
The woman who accompanied Xu Xing was extremely displeased. She said,
“Younger Master Ye, please be aware of who you are raising your voice
The young kid’s lips coldly curled into a smile. What else was he not
capable of doing? As his smile grew cold, Ye Wei smiled and said,
“It’s normal for kids to throw a tantrum. My nephew has a bad
Xu Xing, instead, grabbed Zhang Wanyan’s sleeve and shook her head.
“Auntie, I was wrong.”
Zhang Wanyan was Commander Zhang’s great-nephew who was bosom buddies
with Xu Xing’s mother and was akin to sisters. Since Xu Xing was
released from Rome, she was never in a good mood. Xu Xing’s mother
allowed Zhang Wanyan to bring her to City A to relieve her mood. As they
happened to be in town when Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya had
their wedding, Zhang Wanyan decided to bring her around for a look. Xu
Xing was always extremely well-taken off. She was exceptionally sheltered
in whatever activity she participated in when she was in England. She was
never this free before.
Since she had good looks and was about the right age, she agreed to the
wedding planning company’s manager suggesting that she could be the
flower girl. Little did she expect to encounter Ning Ning.
“Xing Xing, I think it’s better if you are not the flower girl.
It’s his father and mother getting married today,” Zhang Wanyan said.
“If you want to be the flower girl, auntie will bring you elsewhere
another time.” She pulled Xing Xing away as she said that.
Xu Xing, unwilling to yield, said, “It’s okay! I know him. Ning Ning,
Ning Ning, whose face was sullen for a moment, saw her smile and
couldn’t bear to pull a long face. He coldly acknowledged Xu Xing and
she happily asked, “Are you the flower boy?”
The manager of the wedding planning company saw these kids know each
other, and he was in an even stronger favor to pair them up. Ning Ning
subconsciously rejected and Xu Xing said, “Ning Ning, if your daddy and
mommy are getting married, it is because of the flower boy and girl. With
the wedding about to begin, there is nothing wrong with me being the
flower girl, right?”
When Ning Ning looked at her face, his heart started to ache. If it
weren’t for Xu Xing appearing in front of him today, he would have
forgotten about her. Her presence opened up the wounds he hid deep
inside, which were starting to ache.
When she stood next to him, it was as though Nuo Nuo was present. She,
however, was not Nuo Nuo and he could not quite describe this feeling. If
she were somebody else, he would not have quite minded. If it were Xu
Xing… he would mistake her for Nuo Nuo.
Knowing that she was the most suitable amongst the children observing the
wedding, he steeled his heart. Whatever was said, his daddy and mommy’s
wedding was the most important, so whoever was the flower girl was
Ye Wei said, “Ning Ning, the wedding is the utmost priority.”
Ning Ning nodded. “I’ll have to trouble you then.”
When Xu Xing heard Ning Ning agree, she broke into an extremely happy
smile. Although Zhang Wanyan had some opinion, she could not bear to say
much when she saw Xu Xing happy. She always loved Xu Xing and almost
always yielded to her. Her rare happiness following her unhappiness,
often attributed by many as the after-effects of the kidnapping, made
Zhang Wanyan decide not to burst her bubble.
But… How did Xing Xing and the younger master of the Ye Family know
As everybody pondered, Xu Xing’s mood was much lifted ever since Ning
Ning agreed to her being the flower girl. Ning Ning looked at her. His
mind was filled with Nuo Nuo’s actions and smiles. Her cold countenance
and fiery image were deeply seared in his mind.
Ye Wei said, “Ning Ning, I’ll look for third brother to tell him
The young kid nodded. Ye Wei and Eleven then left. Gu Zhensheng came over
to look for Li Yun and the two of them stood aside and chatted. Xu
Xing’s little face seemed a tad nervous and she asked Ning Ning
worriedly, “Do they dislike me?”
Ning Ning looked at her deeply and reminisced about that very face. It
Detestable? He did not detest it as he could not detest somebody who
looked extremely like Nuo Nuo. It was just that Nuo Nuo’s death left
him extremely… heartbroken.
Xu Xing was doted by all whilst Nuo Nuo was all by herself.
It was unfair.
“Allow me to apologize once again for what happened. Please don’t
detest me, okay?” Xu Xing, whose pitch-black eyes were like obsidian,
asked in trepidation.
