100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-407
Chapter 407: The Wedding (Part 2)
“I do not detest you!” Ning Ning said as he turned away and avoided
her face. By avoiding her face, his heart would not ache and he would not
so desperately hope she was Nuo Nuo. The despondent feelings of Nuo Nuo
never to return would also not bind itself around his heart.
He closed his eyes for a moment to hide the despondence in his eyes and
calm his mind. When he opened his eyes, he still saw the world and
nothing had changed, albeit feeling even lonelier.
It was especially so during this joyous occasion.
Zhang Wanyan could see that there was something off with him, and her
bias against him was not as deep as before. When Xu Xing heard that he
did not detest her, he passionately held Ning Ning’s hand and said,
“In that case, could we be friends?”
The young kid frowned and his gaze became several hints colder. When he
was about to shake free of her hand, he heard her sadly remark. “I do
not have friends. Even if you are the only person who does not treat me
like a princess, I will not feel this distant.”
As he looked at her holding onto his hand, he almost rejected her but
swallowed those words back. He instead said, “Your sister had
‘And how you, in comparison, are doted on by many.’
Zhang Wanyan looked at the young kid, aghast. How did he know that the Xu
family had another daughter? Xu Xing said, “I have no sister.”
Ning Ning’s gaze became stern as he looked at Xu Xing maliciously and
insidiously. He wrestled his hand free from Xu Xing’s hand. There was
deep anger that seared within him, and he was not the young kid who had
not seen the world. While he was able to keep his cool come the larger
issues, he could not hold it in whenever Xu Nuo was involved.
As he looked at Xu Xing’s innocent face, the anger in him burned even
more brightly. While he knew that he ought not to shift the focus of the
anger whenever something related to Xu Xing came up, hearing her ‘I
have no sister’ reply in such righteousness ignited his anger.
For the seven years that Xu Nuo was alive, just how many people would
Nuo Nuo was abandoned by her parents, forgotten by her only sister,
painfully beaten by her master, and eventually died. It was afraid that
he was the only person who remembered her as her kin would not even
remember her. Why did his Nuo Nuo have to endure all those hurt?
“Ning Ning, why did you get angry again? Did I say something wrong?”
Xu Xing sounded aggrieved. He seemingly became angry for no rhyme or
reason. Xu Xing was used to calling the shots since young. Who would dare
to show her a sour face? She had a temper of her own, and she did not
need to patronize the feelings of others. Ever since she threw away Ning
Ning’s jade pendant, she always felt a little guilty in front of him
and subconsciously avoided recalling that incident.
Ning Ning might not have known that this was Xu Xing’s very first time
humbling herself in conversation. He was the only person she apologized
“You made no mistake. Your only mistake is not knowing where you went
wrong,” Ning Ning coldly replied. When Ning Ning said that, Zhang
Wanyan grabbed Ning Ning’s elbow. Ning Ning coldly laughed as he looked
at her and ordered. “Let me go!”
His eyes were exceptionally cold. Zhang Wanyan was utterly shocked. A
child should not have such a look and an indomitable presence. As someone
experienced in the world, her legs did not jellify from the shock.
“Younger Master Ye, how did you know about it?” Zhang Wanyan asked.
“I said, let me go!” Ning Ning punctuated his words.
Xu Xing tugged at Zhang Wanyan’s sleeves worriedly, her face filled
with shock. “Auntie…”
Zhang Wanyan looked at Xu Xing and then let Ning Ning go. Ning Ning
curled his lips into a mocking smile and said, “Were you thinking of
asking me not whether I know her, but where she is?”
“Younger Master Ye, you have misunderstood me. I am indeed very
curious. Where is she?” Zhang Wanyan was about to say something, but
she held her words back. Since those were matters of the Xu family, she
was better off not raising them.
She was also extremely curious. Where did said girl end up? Since she
most likely resembled Xing Xing, she could guess that Ning Ning was angry
at Xing Xing because of said person.
Ning Ning broke into a sinister smile and said, “What are you going to
do even if you know where she is? You have abandoned her for so many
years, only to suddenly recall her now? Do you want to know whether she
is living well? Or, are you thinking of abandoning her once again?”
Zhang Wanyan was unable to bear his armor-piercing words. She looked at a
panicking Xu Xing perplexedly and then at Ning Ning fiercely. She was
speechless. She was also against abandoning the child, and in favor of
sending the child to be raised in a family they trusted.
She had tried to convince Lisa not to be this cruel as Xu Nuo was, after
all, her flesh and blood. Xu Nuo could be sent to a foster family. The
Zhang family could even raise Xu Nuo in the name of her mother’s
nephew. Xu Xing’s mother, however, said that the deep ties between the
Xu and the Zhang families meant that the children meeting each other was
inevitable. How could that be explained? As Xu Xing and Xu Nuo were
almost carbon copies of each other, she saw how the three-year-old Xu Nuo
looked like. Xu Nuo’s eyes were dreamier as compared to the liveliness
in Xu Xing’s eyes.
When she abandoned the child back then, she felt it was an immense pity.
There was no news about the child. Even Xu Xing’s mother also regretted
and had people search for her. A one-year-long search yielded no result.
This was an off-limits topic in the Xu family. Xu Xing had no idea about
it and also had no memory of when she was three.
“Ning Ning, auntie, what are you talking about?” Xu Xing was
panicking even more as she did not understand what they were talking
about. She could only see that her auntie did not have the best of looks,
and Ning Ning’s looks were even worse.
Ning Ning looked at Xu Xing and coldly laughed. He pointed to Xu Xing and
said, “Go back and tell them that having her around is enough. They
might treat Xu Nuo as some broken shoe to be thrown, but there will be
people who treat her as a treasure. I want what they do not want.”
When he finished saying, he took a few steps and stopped. He suddenly
turned around and laughed elegantly. “Oh, yes, I forgot to have you
convey this message. Tell them that they can sleep in peace and don’t
have to worry about Xu Nuo harming them anymore. Xu Nuo died a grisly
As he looked at Zhang Wanyan’s whitened face, he had that exhilaration
from getting his revenge. Ye Ningyuan, at that moment, had a demon within
him that wished to devour all the darkness so that the world would be as
dark as him.
Ning Ning, with a glum face, became vexed at the sight of people. He went
to the back of the church and sat on the railings glumly.
Xu Xing supported Zhang Wanyan, who was about to fall and asked,
“Auntie, who is Xu Nuo?”
Zhang Wanyan was speechless.
In the bridal lounge, Third Young Master Ye looked at his bride
mesmerizingly and made no effort to conceal the shock and joy in his
eyes. She had a stunning beauty that intoxicated people. She was finally
going to be wholly his.
Marriage took on a wholly different significance. She was his
legally-recognized wife, and he, her legally-recognized husband. He was
elated at the thought of this. If it weren’t for the makeup on her
face, he would have given her a really good kiss.
“What brings you over here? The wedding is about to begin in a
moment.” Cheng Anya felt her face warm, but nobody could tell since she
had put on extensive makeup.
“No worries. There are people outside,” Third Young Master Ye said.
“I just want to hang around with you for a moment more.”
“When people got married in the past, the newlyweds were not allowed to
see each other for the first three days.”
“Dear wifey, it’s already the 21st century.”
Cheng Anya laughed and held Third Young Master Ye’s hand tightly. Today
was their marriage, the beginning of their happiness. From today onward,
she would become even happier with each day.
“Are you nervous?” Third Young Master Ye asked. Cheng Anya was not
afraid of being embarrassed and nodded. She was slightly nervous, and her
palms became sweaty. How could she not be nervous? “I recalled my first
poetry recital in third grade. I was so nervous that I wetted my pants.”
Third Young Master Ye teasingly asked, “Really?”
Cheng Anya nodded seriously. “With my classmates and teachers below,
and given how our especially stern principal took center stage, my legs
were wobbling when I was on stage and facing him. How could I not wet my
“To think you’d wet your pants in third grade, that’s really
embarrassing.” Third Young Master Ye leaned forward while laughing.
When she recalled that scene, she became embarrassed. To think that Miss
Cheng had such a tragic past.
“Seriously! As it was winter, I wore a lot of clothes and ended up
wetting my cotton pants and shoes. When I returned home, Daddy asked me
why my pants and shoes were wet. I told him that I got myself wet because
the teacher punished me to clean the toilet due to my negligence in
cleaning up the classroom well.”
“Haha… Dear Anya, to think that you were already this funny when you
“Tell me something interesting as well.” Cheng Anya pinched his ear
and ordered him. Third Young Master Ye smartly shook his head. No, he
would not do it. “How could I have something this awkward to share? I
have been an absolute badass since young.”
“Cut the boast.” Cheng Anya laughed and pursued the question. As they
talked, she did not feel nervous anymore. She prayed that her daddy would
not be nervous later.
As the two of them talked, there was a knock on the door. Ye Wei and
Ye Wei said, “Brother, so you are still there. Time to prepare.” She
whistled and said, “Third sister-in-law, you’re looking gorgeous.”
“What brings you here?”
“Hehe, we want to tell you something. Haven’t you been wondering how
the girl who won Ning Ning’s heart looks like? Look at the flower girl
next to him.” Ye Wei blinked. She did not expect Xu Xing to appear at
Cheng Anya could not help but become suspicious. “Wasn’t the girl
“She is Nuo Nuo’s twin sister.”
Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya looked each other in the eye and
said nothing else.
A moment later, the door to the bridal lounge opened. Third Young Master
Ye, Ye Wei, and Eleven walked out. Third Young Master Ye instructed the
guards, “Watch closely and do not slip up.”
“Yes, Third Young Master.” The four of them nodded simultaneously.
Eleven and Ye Wei returned to their earlier positions. With men from the
Dragon Gate around the perimeter of the church, some inside and some
outside, they steadfastly guarded the peace at the wedding. Third Young
Master Ye asked a person, “Where’s the younger master?”
The person shook his head. Third Young Master Ye ordered. “Quickly
search for him! The wedding is about to begin.”
“Yes!” The person who just received his orders rushed down and Long
Fei brought a few people to search for him inside and outside the church.
The young kid was sitting alone at the back of the church and looked up
at the sky in a daze.
He seemed a little lonely.
He even felt that he was somewhat silly to be unable to keep his cool.
While he had taken great pains to bury Nuo Nuo in the depths of his
heart, he lost his cool when he saw Xu Xing. He held his hand tightly. He
couldn’t afford to be like that.
He couldn’t be like that.
Once the enemy knew his weakness, it would become his most fatal flaw.
Since he was unable to act against somebody who resembled Nuo Nuo, his
enemy would exploit a person like Nuo Nuo against him.
He must remain calm.
He could not allow this to happen and had to learn how to tame the demons
in his heart so as not to lose control. If he could look at Xu Xing
someday and treat her as some random passerby, he had achieved it. If
Nevertheless, he could not believe that Nuo Nuo died like this. He wanted
to wait for her, and he was willing to wait for her his entire life
without the slightest regret.
“Younger master, so there you are. The wedding is about to begin, and
Third Young Master is looking high and low for you,” Long Fei rushed
over to him and said. The young kid nodded and stood up. Long Fei asked
worryingly, “Younger master, are you in a bad mood?”
“Is it so evident?” the young kid asked without holding back. Long
Fei nodded and said, “Unfortunately, yes.”
The young kid smiled elegantly and said, “Since this is a joyous
occasion, I ought to look a little happier.”
Long Fei did not say much and the two of them walked forward. Xu Xing had
changed into her gown and stood with Ning Ning. The two of them were
extremely complementary like a golden couple. Third Young Master Ye
looked at them. They indeed resembled each other.
The guests in the church praised the flower boy and girl effusively. Xu
Xing pulled the young kid’s sleeve and asked, “Ning Ning, are you
“I am not,” Ning Ning calmly replied.
“You sure have a bad temper,” Xu Xing said as a matter-of-factly.
“My mommy used to say that I have a bad temper. It seems like your
temper is worse than mine.”
“You are not the first to say that I have a bad temper,” Ning Ning
“Is it?” Xu Xing pouted. “You look like your daddy.”
“Uh, Ning Ning, could I ask you a question? Who is Xu Nuo?”
“What do you mean?”
He smiled without answering. Xu Xing was slightly disappointed that he
did not answer. However, she quickly regained her happiness and found
other topics to talk to him about.
In the bridal lounge, Cheng Anya heard people call ‘Third Young Master
Ye’ outside. As she stood up, she saw Third Young Master Ye push open
the door and enter. She was befuddled. “Ah Chen, what are you doing
He walked over with a gentle smile and hooked around her waist. She was
baffled despite his gentle smile. “Wedding? Anya, there will not be any
Just as she was about to speak, the man covered her nose with a
handkerchief. Her eyes suddenly grew big and she fainted.
Although the guy broke into a pleasing smile, he had a cold look on his
