Ye Wei only felt a huge force almost break her, and she landed in a
somewhat helter-skelter manner as she was caught off guard. She could not
help but roll several times on the ground and her arm became numb from
the pain. She eventually rolled into a warm hug and her back was no
longer painful. When she looked back in astonishment, she saw a pair of
purple eyes in which worry flashed through.
Mo Jue wrapped his arm around Ye family’s waist, and Ye Wei looked up
at the roof that was more than ten meters above and then at him. She
smiled gorgeously and said, “Dear gorgeous Mo Jue, do you really want
to die together with me?”
As though somebody had reopened an old wound, Mo Jue’s gaze sank and he
was embarrassed for a moment. He suddenly pushed Ye Wei away hard and did
not show her face. Ye Wei coldly smiled and propped herself up from the
ground with one arm. She, however, felt a heart-stabbing cold.
She looked around and was shocked. Was this another secret room?
It was another secret room that contained famous paintings and artifacts
that was even colder and more sinister than the previous room. There were
a few night pearls encrusted into the roof and there was only that bit of
light that covered everything in the room. It was neither bright nor
dark. Ye Wei stared at the goddess statue in the distance and a famous
painting on the wall. It was clear that everything in the room was the
same as above, which meant that one of the places had counterfeit items
and the other had the real deal. She seemed to understand
something—that this secret room was the real treasure trove. The one
above was a false front.
Those were definitely counterfeits and the real deals were upstairs. Most
of Count Henry’s most valuable collection was in this secret room.
The cylinder she was carrying did not fall too far away and Ye Wei went
over and took it out. She wore a pair of identification lenses. Mo Jue
was already below the painting and coldly said, “Save yourself the
effort. This is the real deal.”
“Damn it!” Ye Wei swore crudely and threw the counterfeit away.
“Things sure got meaningful fighting tooth and nail over a
Mo Jue did not respond and observed his surroundings in great detail for
an exit instead. Ye Wei looked up at him lazily as she rested against the
goddess statue to recover her strength. She was not in good shape. If Mo
Jue decided to strike, she…
But he… Why did he jump down with her? She forced a burst of laughter
and closed her eyes to rest. It was as though he dropped down together
with her and she couldn’t help but recall some campy scenes in novels
and dramas about people leaping off cliffs to their deaths without
hesitation when the other fell off the cliff.
If she did not understand Mo Jue, she would have thought that he really
wanted to touch her. In the eyes of an outsider, was he a fool in love?
She coldly laughed and decided not to think about it. Ye Wei realized
that people really had strange feelings. Once you are used to something,
you would keep up the habit.
It was as though she had been used to not overthinking about things
between Mo Jue and her, but only guessing what he, the godfather of the
Mafia, would do, and his mentality. She found that it worked.
Every time she thought about something, she subconsciously avoided it and
did not overthink it.
That was good too!
Ye Wei suddenly felt a warm gaze pour on her and opened her eyes. She
found Mo Jue standing in front of her and looking down at her. She raised
her eyebrows and said, “What’s up?”
Mo Jue knelt down and coldly laughed. “I can’t find a hidden
mechanism to get out of here.”
Ye Wei acknowledged and did not respond. She laughed and said,
“That’s no big deal after all. Since I have someone gorgeous to
accompany me, it’s fine.”
Mo Jue coldly harrumphed and reached out to remove her mask. Ye Wei
slapped his hand away and said, “What are you doing? Don’t molest
“Your face is utterly irritating!” Mo Jue coldly said. Ye Wei gently
laughed and said, “Your beauty standards are problematic. I had put in
the most effort into making this mask. This mask, therefore, is
completely perfect, so f*** off if you cannot appreciate it.”
Mo Jue’s face remained sullen and anger burned in his eyes again as he
stared at Ye Wei. He did not like the mask on her and wanted her original
face. Ye Wei looked around the secret room and shouted upward a few
times, but there was no response. She guessed that Eleven might not have
heard it given the excellent soundproofing of the room.
Henry must have been thoughtful enough to come up with a secret room
within a secret room. If the two of them had not fought until they
triggered that secret mechanism, they might never have discovered this
treasure. How wonderful!
“This secret chamber is completely sealed off from the outside save an
exhaust vent. If that exhaust vent is shut, we are going to suffocate to
death,” Mo Jue said as he pointed to the exhaust vent to the right. He
had long familiarized himself with his surroundings.
“Even the undead would die for a woman.” Ye Wei decided to straighten
her legs and gently smiled. Her smile was a little roguish and yet a
little loose. She started brazenly teasing Gorgeous Mo Jue.
Mo Jue, for some reason, suddenly flew into a rage and slapped Ye Wei
hard on her injured arm and Ye Wei screamed in pain. Although there was
some exaggeration, it really hurt. He was really mean enough to not stop
until he wasted her arm?
Ye Wei stared at Mo Jue hard and Mo Jue went the whole nine yards by
sitting next to her whilst reclining against the stone statue unhappily
and did not move.
In a cold and sinister secret room, having an unpredictable yet gorgeous
person next to oneself was not the best of things. The two of them were
rivals who would often send their enemies to kingdom come. Ye Wei looked
at herself and then at him. She was at 70% of what she was always capable
of. She definitely could not win against Gorgeous Mo Jue. While Mo Jue
was always vicious toward Ye Wei, he never killed her.
He, out of his penchant for evil, tortured her.
Ye Wei, in a daze, somehow remembered his vicious expression outside the
mansion by the beach and his cold words. Her slightly stirred heart was
instantly suppressed and all became calm.
She was speechless for a moment.
Ye Wei had been sitting for long and grew cold. It did not help that she
was sitting next to an ice cube. Ye Wei then pushed his shoulder and
asked, “How did you know that I was here tonight?”
“I did not!”
“Nonsense. You clearly knew I was here. I am curious though. How did
you manage to locate me?” Ye Wei mused and asked, “Did I allow you to
install something you shouldn’t?”
“Whether you believe me or not is up to you!” Mo Jue coldly
harrumphed with his typically cold look. There was even a rage that
wished he could smash her in the face to stop her teasing once and for
all. He never understood how she could always be so heartless.
“I don’t buy that!” Ye Wei still smiled. To believe him or not was
no longer important to her because it carried no significance. Since that
did not change the outcome, Ye Wei was too lazy to think about it. “So,
what’s with your hard-on for this painting?”
“I’m just short of it,” Mo Jue answered the question albeit
“Are you so needy to the point you have to do such things?” Ye Wei
laughed gorgeously as she leaned into him. Mo Jue’s gaze turned cold
and looked at her as though he was looking at all his past enemies.
“Stay away from me, or I will really waste your arm.”
“Oh, who was the one who drew close to me? This place is so large, so
go sit there.” Ye Wei arrogantly lifted her chin. If he crippled her
arm, so be it. She would take it that it was his first time crippling her.
She had never shown mercy before, and she did not grow up by being scared.
Mo Jue coldly looked around quietly as Ye Wei, in his wishes, threw
herself into his embrace. The secret room was too cold. It was still
Gorgeous Mo Jue’s embrace that was the most comfortable and warm, that
she enjoyed. Beautiful Ye Wei had no intention of torturing herself.
“If you really need money, I can be your sugar mommy. Call me queen.”
“Since we are not getting out, let’s wait to be saved.”
“Don’t fight with me for that painting.” Mo Jue ordered and did not
allow Ye Wei to resist. Although he did not allow Ye Wei to resist, he
indulged Ye Wei by allowing her to snuggle into his embrace.
“If you are missing a painting, so be it. Why are you so hard up about
it? It’s not like I am going to ruin your reputation.”
“My elder brother wants it!”
“My elder brother still wants it… Are you the only person with an
elder brother?” Ye Wei slapped Mo Jue’s face neither gently nor
hardly and Mo Jue did not avoid the slap. Ye Wei was thankful that she
slapped him jokingly. If not, he would have kicked her tens of meters
Elder brother, elder brother…
‘Damn it, why is he so obedient toward Big Boss Mo? He is really
obedient to a fault.’
“Hey, if your brother has you kill me, will you kill me?”
“Yes!” he replied without the slightest hesitation.
Ye Wei was slightly hurt and callously said, “Whenever I am free,
Eleven and I will head to Colombia and take him out. I’ve decided that
he will be the next target.”
“If anything untoward happens to him, I will kill you!” Mo Jue
replied maliciously and insidiously. He would not allow anybody, even Ye
Wei, to harm his elder brother.
“You are neither going to convince nor arm-twist me into it. Is this
your first time threatening me?” Ye Wei coldly harrumphed.
Mo Jue remained silent. Ye Wei smiled and wantonly caressed his waist.
She had silver needles hidden in her palm. She opened and closed her
hands to have the silver needles between her nails.
Mo Jue did not move or speak, and Ye Wei said, “Your purpose here
tonight is not just the drawing. You want to know the performance gap
between Silver Face and us, no?”
When it came to Silver Face, Ye Wei secretly wondered whether Silver Face
hated her most instead of Eleven.
“If you say so!” Mo Jue flatly replied. He did not deny it. When he
saw them, he indeed wondered how much of a difference there was between
Silver Face and them.
Or, how much had he surpassed them?
He knew that Silver Face had definitely surpassed them as he had a good
idea of Silver Face’s ability when he exchanged blows with him. Eleven
and Ye Wei, however, were extremely capable of overperforming
substantially under specific circumstances. Silver Face, on the other
hand, was not capable of that. He hence wanted to know how much Silver
Face had surpassed them. As to why he wanted to know that, it was afraid
that she would never understand the reasons behind it for her whole life.
He had learned how merciless Ye Wei could be.
