100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-421
As a sharp pain swamped her head, Rong Yan could not help but clutch her
head and curl her body. Stop thinking about it, stop thinking about it.
The more you think about it, the worse off you get and the more horrible
you feel. Why did she have to make things so difficult for herself?
As a tough person, she rarely showed her weak side. Chu Li, in shock,
suddenly hugged her as his heart ached. He did not hope for this.
“Yan Yan, please stop this. Be good…” Chu Li kissed her hair whorl
and gently consoled her. Since he was not good at consoling people and
saying gentle words, all he could say all this while was be good…
When did he humble himself when dealing with a woman?
Rong Yan could not help but recall how he hugged Fang Ying and console
her that day. Rong Yan felt bitterness in her heart and rage brewed in a
hidden corner of her. Didn’t he console Fang Ying the same say?
Just how many people had he been gentle toward?
Rong Yan suddenly pushed him away, her gaze becoming colder and colder.
Chu Li, his heart extremely aching, reached out to stroke Rong Yan’s
face but Rong Yan pushed his hand away. She closed her eyes and opened
them again, still silent.
“Ah Li, let me go!” Rong Yan said gently yet firmly.
Chu Li’s pitiful gaze became sinister. He looked at her deeply whilst
his clenching fists crackled. Rong Yan was guessing that he was about to
punch her. As he had said, if she dared to leave him, he would break her
legs and imprison her in the castle for life so that she would not be
able to go anywhere.
She always knew about his viciousness.
To protect his beloved Fang Ying, he viciously allowed her to be led away
by his rivals. In both life-and-death instances, he chose Fang Ying over
She always thought that Chu Li loved her, and still thought so. He,
however, loved Fang Ying even more and she was nowhere as close as Fang
Ying in his heart. She, after all, accompanied him through his most
difficult and loneliest times.
She could not stack up against those ten-over years of friendship. Not
only had she lost to time, but she had also lost him.
He remembered Fang Ying for seven years. Although she did return, she
should have been aware that she was merely a fallback for him when Fang
Ying was not present. Now that the real one was back, the fallback ought
to retire as it had fulfilled its purpose.
Her heart ached until it suffocated.
She had tried to fight for love before, but the heart-wrenching ending
and emotional damage she sustained had caused her to lose the courage to
love. This time, Chu Li viciously strangled her courage to live again.
Since that was the case, let’s all return to the beginning and stop
pining for each other. Maybe her heart would open up once again.
She slightly loathed the calculative self she was today.
“Are you serious about leaving me?” Chu Li paused for a moment and
coldly asked. His anger oozed little by little out from him as he
struggled to hide his shock and anger. He broke into a cold and mocking
That was a mockery, a blatant mockery!
Rong Yan nodded and looked at him fearlessly. “Yes, I want to leave
“Where would you go then?” Chu Li coldly laughed and mocked her.
“Where else can you go after you leave me? You are non grata in Country
R and cannot return to your home. You have no friends, no family, so
where will you go should you leave me?”
“Wherever I go is none of your business.” Rong Yan smiled gently.
“If Wei Wei and Eleven leave, I will follow them.”
“In your dreams!” Chu Li suddenly roared. A storm manifested on his
handsome face. “I will not allow you to leave with them, over my dead
He could not afford to let her go, knowing that she would not return once
he let her go. He had lost her once, and HE could not afford to take the
risk of losing her again. He would go mad. This person, whether in person
or spirit, had to be next to him.
She would not be going anywhere.
As Chu Li’s malicious and insidious gaze became more intense, Rong Yan
smiled bitterly and said, “You already have Fang Ying, so why are you
clinging onto me?”
“What does our matter have to do with Fang Ying?” Chu Li flatly
replied. “Why are you so concerned about Fang Ying?”
“If that is the case, why are you so concerned about William and went
to save me at the beginning? Why didn’t you let me marry William?”
Rong Yan roared uncontrollably and viciously kicked Chu Li. Her kick
squarely landed in Chu Li’s abdomen.
He softly grunted and stared at her as he clutched his abdomen. Rong Yan
looked away. She did not want to look like a jealous woman. She regretted
saying that. She should not have said that. She had openly shown her
He always disliked it.
To Rong Yan’s surprise, Chu Li was not angry but laughed instead. There
was narrow-mindedness in his eyes and he said, “Are you jealous of Fang
His lips curled into an ever-bigger smile. He seemed to be in an
extremely good mood that especially irked her. She chose not to reply
lest he smugly look at her. He had no idea how detestable he looked.
“Yan Yan, Fang Ying is merely Fang Ying. You do not have to mind
her,” Chu Li flatly said as he pressed down on her shoulders and looked
in her eyes deeply. “Believe me this once, okay?” He punctuated his
Rong Yan slapped his hand away and looked at him coldly. “That will not
do. Chu Li, you saw William kiss me in the desert that day. Do you
believe me? If you do not believe me, what is my basis for believing
Chu Li was at a loss for words, and his patience ebbed. Whenever it came
to Rong Yan, he was never a patient person to begin with.
“Whether you believe me or not, I am stopping this story here. Fang
Ying was injured because of me, and I have an obligation to take care of
her. As for what happened that day, I was in the wrong…”
“Stop… You’re right. You were always right, and I deluded
myself,” Rong Yan coldly replied. “Ah Li, stop deceiving yourself and
those around you. You have never let go of Fang Ying, so stop keeping me
content with these lies.”
“You hate me.” Chu Li looked deeply into her eyes and coldly laughed.
She shook her head and said, “I do not hate you.”
“No, you hate me!” Chu Li insisted. Rong Yan laughed unintentionally.
Since he said she hated him, so be it then. There was no big deal to it.
“I just feel tired, so let’s call it quits,” she gently replied and
did not mask the fatigue in her voice.
“I will not allow that!” Chu Li coldly said through gritted teeth.
“Don’t you ever dream of leaving me!”
Rong Yan mockingly laughed and held up his face. She said, “Ah Li, I
dare you to look into my eyes and tell me that you do not love Fang Ying
As he fell silent, the anger in his eyes, which hid a serrating hatred,
burned even brighter. “After all this crap, do you believe me or not?”
“Look at your study room, and then your bedroom. Even though she was
never by your side, she was with you for seven years.” Bitterness
flashed through her, but she restrained herself with her dear life lest
she lose it.
Chu Li was slightly at a loss and did not say a word for a moment. Rong
Yan stood up, turned around, and gently said, “Ah Li, let’s spare
each other this agony!”
As she turned around to open the door, Chu Li’s cold voice came from
behind her. “Rong Yan, all you have to do is to say that you do not
like me seeing her. I will immediately get her to leave.”
Rong Yan’s heart jolted in shock.
“I just want that one statement from you!”
“There’s no need for it!” Rong Yan gently smiled, opened the door,
and resolutely walked away.
‘Ah Li, how could you be so vicious? You know that I will not open my
mouth to beg you.’ She would never do such a thing.
Rong Yan had her pride. While she could muster the courage to love and
forsake all for love without the slightest regret, she could not be
forced to do something she was unwilling to do. She had lost her
easy-going side, and she did not want to lose her pride.
As she went down the stairs and reached the great hall, she saw them
arguing with Fang Ying for god knew what. Wei Wei noticed that she was
slightly amiss and was baffled. Everybody else saw Rong Yan but not Chu
Li and was somewhat baffled. Only Fang Ying rejoiced.
Had she cried?
Ye Wei smiled ambiguously. “Ah, Yan Yan, how could Scheming Chu be such
a brute? Look at your neck. He is so… passionate.”
Everybody looked in the direction of Ye Wei’s ambiguous gaze and
noticed several extremely obvious bite marks on Rong Yan’s neck along
with her swollen lips. It did not take much guessing to figure out what
had happened earlier.
Everybody smiled ambiguously and Rong Yan did not mind. Fang Ying,
however, clenched her fists and was extremely jealous.
“Are you done discussing?” Rong Yan gently asked as she sat next to
Bai Ye calmly as though nothing had happened. Fang Ying’s body shook
from side to side. She was unable to bear the shock and seemed like she
was about to faint.
“There was some busybody who was always hanging around, so we could not
get down to discussing matters properly. The only way was to wait for
Ross to return before deciding what to do. We’ll schedule a time at
night lest people are not as aware as we hope them to be,” Ye Wei said
impolitely as she coldly looked at Fang Ying with mockery and warning.
Since Fang Ying was unwilling to leave, they could not discuss and the
few of them ignored her and chatted on. Fang Ying gritted her teeth and
looked at Rong Yan, jealousy gnawing at her heart. What did Rong Yan do
to be so well-liked?
“Why is she here? She does not belong to the organization. If I am
unqualified, she is even more so!” Fang Ying could not bear it and
burst out. “You have been too unfair toward me!”
Bai Ye plainly said, “Yan Yan is different from you. We trust her.”
“Are you trying to say that you do not trust me?”
“Whether we trust you or not is not important. These are the rules.”
Black J did not want to sour relations excessively as it would be
difficult for Chu Li.
Fang Ying gritted her teeth and was about to act up when Chu Li entered.
She could only bear it and act aggrievedly as though they had bullied
her. Chu Li took a look and did not say much. His gaze was dark.
Eleven shrugged and said, “Seems like the discussion can’t go on
anymore today. Since Ross is not present too, we’ll have to schedule
“You two aren’t staying in the castle?” Bai Ye raised his eyebrows.
“I am greedy and want to taste Rong Yan’s cooking. Since she is not
staying here, we will not be staying here either. It’s been a long time
since we last saw each other. It would be convenient for us to catch up
with each other.” Ye Wei smiled. “Rong Yan has warmly welcomed us,
and we could not turn her down. Eleven, is that correct?”
“Mhm!” Eleven acknowledged.
Black J and Bai Ye looked at each other in the eye, and then toward Chu
Li, who sat quietly in a corner and did not say a word. Ye Wei suddenly
knocked against the table and coolly said, “Scheming Chu, there is
something I must clarify upfront. Is any tom dick harry able to enter
this meeting hall? You are the master of the house, so why don’t you
set some boundaries?”
Everybody could tell that this was directed at Fang Ying.
Chu Li looked at Ye Wei, and then at Fang Ying. He calmly said, “Little
Ying, didn’t I ask you to return you to your room?”
“Brother Chu, don’t you believe me too?” Fang Ying bitterly asked
with a hint of mockery on her face.
“I believe you, but you are not in good health. Stop exposing yourself
to the elements here,” Chu Li politely said. Rong Yan coldly laughed.
The Chu Li she knew had never been so indirect. He was typically vicious
While he could not be bothered with feigning concern, Fang Ying was
indeed wholly different.
Fang Ying bit her lip and said, “Brother Chu, I am still part of the
organization, no? We grew up together and you all would not avoid me when
discussing issues. Please allow me to return, okay? I feel like an
Ye Wei leaned back and slowly said, “Fang Ying, you leave and rejoin
the organization at your whim and fancy. Are you treating us like some
orphanage? Since you are getting comfortable leaving and rejoining us,
leave for good and don’t come back if you are as capable as we think.
If you decide to return, I will be the first to disagree.”
Fang Ying’s eyes grew wide and she looked at Ye Wei unbelievably. She
did not believe that Ye Wei would clarify the issue and not care about
Chu Li’s stand at all. She always knew that the major heads of the
terrorist organization were Jason, Chu Li, and Black J. When the few of
them gathered, Ye Wei had the final say and they would not protest her
decision. Black J, Chu Li, and her relationship were already on very good
terms, and Jason absolutely listened to Ye Wei. The truth was that those
two women were the people who had the most right to speak in the
Since Ye Wei was the first to disagree, Bai Ye, Black J, and Jason were
bound to disagree.
Chu Li’s gaze darkened and Fang Ying panicked. “Brother Chu…”
“Little Ying, we discuss this again,” Chu Li gently replied. He had,
from the onset, no intention for Fang Ying to remain present. Those were
the rules that he could not bend.
Fang Ying broke into a chuckle. She knew that further discussion would
not yield any results and she pointed at Rong Yan as she clutched her
wounded chest and asked, “What about her? Why can she still be
Rong Yan calmly smiled and stood up. “I just came over to greet them
and will be on my way immediately.”
Chu Li’s face changed. Ye Wei and Eleven stood up. Ye Wei smiled
gorgeously and said, “I am about to enjoy Rong Yan’s cooking. Let us
know once everybody is here again. If some other tom dick harry serves
tea, my eyes will twitch hard.”
“You will not leave!” Chu Li slammed the table and stood up. Fang
Ying grabbed his sleeve and he shook her hands away with force. She
backed away and clutched her chest and panted. Her face was terrifyingly
Chu Li grabbed Rong Yan’s hands and said, “You will not leave!”
As he suddenly heard a heavy object collapsing behind him, Chu Li turned
around in panic. Fang Ying had collapsed. He let go and Rong Yan smiled.
She walked out of the great hall and did not turn back. Ye Wei grabbed
Chu Li’s collar and said, “Scheming Chu, your darling has fainted.”
Chu Li gritted his teeth and hesitated. He grabbed Fang Ying and said,
“Bai Ye, come take a look.”
