100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-419
Everybody knew well to remain silent, and Rong Yan was calm as though
whatever Ye Wei did was not the slightest related to her. She peeled
several walnuts in a row, and the sound made by the walnuts being peeled
cryptically filled the room.
Fang Ying looked at Chu Li aggrievedly whilst Chu Li looked at Rong Yan
glumly. Fang Ying called out to Brother Chu with tears in her eyes and
Chu Li then turned back to say, “What happened? Do your wounds still
Everybody looked down in unison and broke into a smile. Chu Li did not
hear what Ye Wei said, and even if he did, he would not be able to say
much. A few days after Rong Yan left, everybody knew how he went crazy
thinking about her. Given how tough it was for him to see her, he clearly
could not bear to see her leave.
Fang Ying looked down and seemed especially pitiful, being on the verge
of tears. As Chu Li frowned and looked around, several tall men started
to peel their walnuts. Ye Wei scooted next to Rong Yan and flatly said,
“Yan Yan, you ought to cry sometimes. Tears are really useful at making
people heart’s ache. How stupid can you get?”
Rong Yan smiled. Cry? Would people take pity on her if she cried? How
many times had she cried in the past 5-6 years? She could no longer count
them, and what really hurt her most was the number of times she had cried
when she had considered giving up on Chu Li.
Nobody knew how her heart became numbed after the crying and aching. What
was the point of crying when what would never belong to one would never
belong to them however much they wanted?
“Yan Yan, show me your tears!” Ye Wei smiled and Eleven goaded her
on. While Fang Ying was embarrassed and frustrated, she could not say
much even as Ye Wei and Eleven insulted and secretly mocked her.
“I drank too little water last night and am dehydrated.” Rong Yan
gently smiled as she accurately threw the peeled walnuts into Ye Wei’s
Ye Wei was slightly baffled. “That’s not quite the case. I once saw
you cry intensely, like really intensely.”
Chu Li’s face changed and his gaze became even darker.
Rong Yan smiled and did not reply.
Fang Ying looked at Ye Wei with slight indignation as she sounded a tad
sad, “Wei Wei, must you talk about me this way?”
Ye Wei slammed the table with slight anger on her face. She spoke with an
elegant arrogance, her words shooting out like bullets. “Fang Ying, are
you getting too used to slandering people? I am freaking talking to Rong
Yan here, and what business is that of yours? Who do you think you are
for me to talk about?”
When Ye Wei flew into a rage, the men present wisely avoided being
collateral damage. Simply put, getting popcorn and watching the exchange
was quite a kick in itself.
Fang Ying’s face became perplexed. She looked on with hatred and anger.
As she was no slouch, she pushed back and said, “I am not referring to
you. You know very well that this is between the three of us, so why are
you sticking your finger in it?”
“So the world revolves around you, huh? Why can’t we interfere? Wei
Wei did not even call out names. Are you connecting the correct dots?”
Eleven coldly replied.
“Cut it!” Chu Li shot a warning gaze at Ye Wei and gently said,
“Little Ying has yet to fully recover from her injuries. Cut her some
slack, will you?”
Ye Wei coldly smiled. Black J tugged at her sleeve and whispered into her
ear. “Look at his face. That’s done the trick.”
Ye Wei really wanted to tell him that she actually wanted to call it a
day, but Rong Yan was still stepping on her. She knew that Rong Yan was
an expert at proxy warfare, and she was, however innocently sitting
there, fated to play the villain this time around.
“How long has she been wounded? Eleven and I recover from gun wounds in
a few days. Are you treating her like some precious rich man’s
daughter? Are you suggesting that we did not take bullets before? I can
take a slash to my abdomen and walk after these many days,” Ye Wei
coldly replied in increasing anger as Rong Yan was varying the intensity
she was stepping her on.
‘Yan Yan, my legs are legs too. There is no need for you to step on me
Fang Ying’s heart ached and her tears were about to break free. Chu Li,
on the other hand, was slightly angry and Fang Ying was rejoicing in her
heart seeing as he was still protecting her. When Chu Li was about to say
something, Rong Yan softly gasped. She accidentally allowed splinters
from peeling the walnut to pierce her and some blood oozed out.
As Bai Ye was the nearest to her, he could not help but grab her hand and
take a look. Chu Li was shocked and looked at Rong Yan’s hands. It was,
after all, a flesh wound that was not particularly severe, and there was
little blood as though it was jabbed by a silver needle.
Heartache flashed through him, and Chu Li’s face became even darker.
Bai Ye and Rong Yan were simply too close to each other. It was no major
wound, but they were so close to each other and he looked extremely
worried whilst Rong Yan smiled and said all was fine. Rong Yan’s smile
was the gentlest smile he had seen in a while. As Chu Li saw the
adulterous pair whose heads were almost stuck together, the anger in his
eyes burned even brighter.
Ye Wei really wanted to cheer her comrade, Bai Ye, on. ‘You are sure
gentlemanly enough to play along this well.’ Rong Yan finally lifted
her leg and spared her.
Fang Ying looked at Rong Yan with a grudge in her eyes that was a mix of
blame, unwillingness, and anger. If she weren’t bandaged, Chu Li would
have stood up for her.
Rong Yan, why did you choose to come back despite having left once?
She hated it!
Jason was extremely hot-tempered and was about to flare up as he could
not stand the atmosphere. He calmed down after Eleven stepped on him.
While they seemed extremely casual with how they sat, there was a meaning
behind it. Jason’s temper was the most explosive and Eleven was the
coldest. Hence, the two of them sat together. Eleven was the only person
who could most effectively keep Jason’s explosive temper in check. He
stared at Fang Ying in anger, and things today wouldn’t have ended up
like this if the lady in question weren’t Fang Ying.
They had always cut Fang Ying extra slack because she had endured three
years under Chu Li. In the eyes of others, Chu Li was enough of a brute
to disappoint her as it was nearly impossible to find a girl so
hopelessly in love with him. Back then, she had told Chu Li extremely
mean words and decided to leave for whatever reason. They had clearly
separated and she returned when Chu Li now had Rong Yan.
One could not fulfill both love and duty simultaneously.
She took two bullets for Chu Li, and Chu Li ought to take care of her out
of guilt. She, however, had become too greedy and had the audacity to
appear before Rong Yan, the princess apparent. She was clearly bragging.
“Fang Ying, since you are this frail, quickly go back to the room and
rest. There are, after all, insufficient teacups to go around,” Ye Wei
said as she pulled the tray over. She poured a cup for Rong Yan and then
poured a cup for herself which she drank a mouth from.
The rest of them poured their own tea. Fang Ying was feeling extremely
awkward and could not help but turn to Chu Li for help. Chu Li suddenly
stood up, flung Black J’s hands away, and pulled Rong Yan.
“Unless you want to die, stay away!” Chu Li loudly ordered as he
brutally pulled Rong Yan along with him. The maidservants in the corridor
saw them and stepped aside. Everybody knew that he was not in the best of
moods and did not have the balls to call him out on it.
Fang Ying was stunned and she was as pale as a ghost. She dazedly looked
in the direction they disappeared to. Her reddened eyes gave way to tears
that flowed down her pale face.
Ever since she returned, how many times had he brought her away in this
manner? Rong Yan used to watch their silhouettes, stunned. However,
today, he led Rong Yan away instead and had her look at them in a daze.
Her heart was aching as though a knife had stabbed it.
‘Unless you want to die, stay away!’ Was he so angry to the point he
was out of his mind? Save her, who else would call him Brother Chu? He
knew it was her, but he warned to stay away unless she had a death wish.
Did he want her to die?
No, he must have said it when he lost his mind.
He would not simply leave her as she was.
Ever since Rong Yan appeared, he had always kept his temper in check.
Even if he was angry, he hid it. Despite how Ye Wei made things difficult
for her, he ignored Ye Wei as he only had eyes for Rong Yan. When Bai Ye
got too up close and personal with his Rong Yan, he could no longer keep
With his jealousy this evident, she had no way of deceiving herself.
He had never, because of her, lost control of his emotions. When she was
still his woman back then, Chen Yang was full of admiration for her and
she felt that Chu Li was a tad cold toward her. She would, intentionally
or unintentionally, walk closer to Chen Yang. He had never treated her
the same way he treated Rong Yan.
She did ask Brother Chu whether he was not the slightest jealous.
His reply was, “I trust Chen Yang.”
She felt extremely sweet then and thought their love would stand against
everything as they trusted each other.
He would not allow anyone to even slightly touch Rong Yan. When compared
to Chen Yang, Bai Ye was even more convincing. Why did he not trust Bai
No, he would not allow anybody else to touch his woman, not even their
He was in love with Rong Yan!
She was long aware of the truth but was unwilling to admit that she had
completely lost him. She was, however, unwilling as she surely would have
a place in his heart despite those ten-over years of friendship.
It was Rong Yan’s appearance that turned all those feelings into
coldness. It was all Rong Yan’s fault!
Black J coolly looked at Ye Wei and Bai Ye and said, “Your acting was a
tad too obvious, no?”
Ye Wei raised her hands in innocence. “I was forced.”
Bai Ye also raised his hands. “Doctor’s instinct.”
Jason stared at them unhappily. “Were you deliberately doing that?”
Eleven shot him an ‘are you an idiot look’. Jason was clearly prone
to bursts of anger. Thanks to that mountain of ice next to him, he could
not afford to act up. A few of them looked in Fang Ying’s direction
silently and discussed recent happenings.
“Bai Ye, as for the chip, there must be an insider in London. Did you
get to the bottom of it?” Ye Wei asked with a slightly cold look. The
leak of information from their organization was no small matter, and they
were thankful they had the ability to reverse the leak. If there were a
repeat, the consequences could be disastrous.
They could not expect to recover the leaked information once and again,
especially when Mo Ye and Mo Jue still had their sights set on them.
“There is no breakthrough as of now. Given that only Chu Li and I have
access to the mainframe, Ning Ning has also confirmed that fingerprint
access does not grant immediate access to the mainframe. Since the
information was leaked from the mainframe, I am indeed baffled.” Bai Ye
deduced without hesitation. “I am guessing somebody snuck in through
the ventilation duct and copied information without leaving a trace. As
extremely few people in the world are capable of doing that, I am
extremely baffled at that possibility.”
The terrorist organization’s internal protective systems were extremely
formidable. The mainframe was located in the most secret location in the
castle and directly managed by Chu Li. There was only one computer in the
server room and only one access point. Anybody who wanted to copy
information had to enter the server room.
In order to access the server room, one had to go through four
identification systems, the first being Chu Li’s fingerprint
identification, followed by a password identification, then Chu Li’s
voice identification, and lastly Chu Li’s iris identification. Nobody
could expect access to the server room if they did not clear any of the
four identification systems.
The temperature in the server room was consistent all year round. It had
thermal sensors, IR sensors, and even weight sensors built into the
ground. Once a person entered, the temperature in the server room would
change and the alarm would ring. The IR sensors created an even more
intricate web that was impossible to dodge. The weight sensors were
triggered by even a drop of water dropping onto the ground.
With such extreme measures guarding the server room, he had no idea how
the information was leaked. He checked all the ventilation ducts and
confirmed that there was no human tampering. That explained why the loss
of information was extremely baffling. Even Chu Li and Bai Ye, who were
geniuses, were thoroughly baffled.
Back then, Jason and Black J had checked all the ventilation ducts to
confirm there was no problem. Even Black J, the master thief amongst
them, did not make it through the simulation Chu Li planned, which was to
enter the server room through the ventilation duct in the roof. Even the
master thief in Black J was unable to evade the heat sensor and IR
“If there is a first time, there will be a second time,” Eleven
“We’ve told Ning Ning about this last night, and he suggested adding
a guard in the server room. Chu Li and I are discussing its
suitability,” Bai Ye said. “His suggestions fit the current
situations well. Even all the ventilation ducts are to be fitted…”
Bai Ye paused and said, “Fang Ying, what are you still doing here?”
Fang Ying did not seem to hear them and she looked in the direction that
Chu Li and Rong Yan disappeared to, still in a daze. She seemed
especially lost. Looking at her invoked pity. Everybody realized that
that should not have been discussed before Fang Ying. While she would not
betray them, rules were still rules.
As she seemed to be in a daze, Ye Wei shot a walnut at her spine. Fang
Ying then responded and looked at Ye Wei in anger. “Ye Wei, when are
you going to stop picking on me?”
“Who is picking on you?” Ye Wei coldly raised her eyebrows and
impolitely replied. “We are discussing business, and you should not be
sitting in. Scram.”
“I am not talking about that, but just now. What was going through your
head when you made me so awkward before Chu Li?” Fang Ying was in
extreme rage and glared at her. “Is there some unpardonable sin that I
have committed that you have to pick on me?”
Jason also flew into a rage and said, “Little Ying, what are you
saying? When did Wei Wei pick on you? I can’t pick that out, so stop
slandering her, will you? What you did when you were much younger was
Eleven curled her lips. That was aptly said. Did Jason really know
whether Wei Wei was picking on Fang Ying? She was baffled.
“I… Brother Jason, that was ten years ago.” Fang Ying rebutted.
Ye Wei coolly had her arms akimbo and said, “I always forgot to ask you
this question. What is your basis for staying around here? As Scheming
Chu’s woman? Has he admitted? Try it. Rong Yan and I were talking
earlier, and he was definitely planning to manipulate me.”
