Following Chu Li’s simple discussion with the rest, Ross would
investigate Count Henry as he was British royalty and nobody knowing his
association with the First Terrorist Organization would make
investigations a tad easier. Chu Li instinctively knew that Count Henry
was inevitably related to the situation. Black J would look up artifacts
that recently cleared customs whereas Jason and Bai Ye would investigate
Ye Wei and Eleven’s traces. Chu Li would command from headquarters.
In previous incidents, except for Rong Yan being held hostage by Prince
William, Chu Li was always behind the scenes. This time, almost all the
elites in the organization were mobilized to locate Ye Wei and Eleven.
Everybody knew that Henry, Mo Jue, and the artifacts were clues that led
to Ye Wei and Eleven’s whereabouts, which was the most important. With
Ye Wei in Mo Jue’s clutches, Chu Li was extremely worried about Ye
Wei’s fate. He was most worried about Eleven’s disappearance.
Once everyone was assigned their missions, they quickly got down to work.
Only Rong Yan and Chu Li were left in the conference hall. Chu Li,
departing from his previous calmness, became angry and sinister-looking.
He grabbed Rong Yan who was about to leave and coldly asked, “Where are
He sounded sinister and his voice even had a few hints of bloodlust. Rong
Yan smiled. He seemed to become even more easily provoked by her. She did
not know whether it was a good thing or a bad thing, but she loved him
flying into a rage as it made him seem livelier.
She calmly looked at Chu Li, who had dark hair, clear eyes, and an
Oriental suaveness. Chu Li was not as casual-looking as Bai Ye but had
his own streak. His hidden domineering streak was not something that
could be cultivated overnight. She remembered that when she first knew
him, her first impression of him was a handsome man who was ruthless but
lacked that intimidating authority.
“I’m going home!” Rong Yan plainly replied as she tried to break
free from him and leave. Chu Li, however, held her tightly and she could
not move. She could not help but smile and ask, “Could you just afford
me that personal freedom, please?”
Chu Li looked at her angrily and thinned his lips into a straight line.
“Don’t you know how dangerous it was to go to the castle with Ye Wei
and Eleven? You only know some fancy moves and some fencing at best.
There are so many mercenaries there. What were you doing there? Do you
have a freaking death wish?”
Since they were all around, he could afford the anger he had long
suppressed in him to act up. The more he recalled, the more he was
terrified because he knew what kind of person Mo Jue was. He had also
been slightly careless and assumed that Ye Wei and Eleven were partners
forever and would not bring anybody along. If Mo Jue knew that there was
also a Rong Yan present, Rong Yan would have never made it back alive.
As Chu Li thought about it, he was terrified, fearful, and then angry. He
was angry at how she did not know her limits and put herself in such a
dangerous situation. Knowing his own anger was not to be sniffed at, he
quietly said to himself earlier that he really wanted to strangle her.
Rong Yan was the only person who could send him into such a flying rage
and invoke all his emotions.
“I insisted on going myself, and Ye Wei and Eleven were alone in the
castle. What’s wrong with me being their getaway driver? Besides, I was
hidden in the woods and simply could not be seen in the night. I still
came back in one piece, so where is this ‘danger’ that you are
rambling about?” Rong Yan softly defended herself. She admitted that
she had taken a slight risk, and she was also thankful that nobody
discovered her. If not…
She naturally knew what Chu Li was angry about, and she felt even more
smug and sweet as he scolded her. Rong Yan could not help but mock
herself for being such a masochistic freak that had been hurt and
abandoned by Scheming Chu these past few years. It was afraid she would
become the legendary cockroach that would survive everything that was
thrown at it, becoming the badass female lead who became stronger with
“What if?” Chu Li could not help but roar. Zhou Zheng, who was
standing at the door, broke into a smile as he heard his boss roar. Ever
since Rong Yan left, he had never heard his boss roar and was really not
quite used to it.
“There are very few what-ifs. Besides, I am already back. That said, if
I weren’t there, you all wouldn’t know whether Wei Wei and Eleven
have met with trouble and ought to thank me.” Rong Yan plainly smiled.
Chu Li felt he was talking to a wall, and his face became even more
“I will not allow you to do this next time.” Chu Li retracted his
anger and tried to calm himself down. His words that followed were not as
calm. “If you dare to take such a risk again, I will break your legs.”
“I am even more certain that you are really violent.” Rong Yan
callously smiled and pushed him as she walked away. “I am going home.”
Chu Li took a few steps forward and grabbed her. “You will stay here
and not go anywhere.”
“Oh. If that’s the case, where shall I sleep?” Rong Yan raised her
eyebrows. Her calm and beautiful eyes had a hint of mockery. “Are you
sure that you really welcome my presence? Are you sure you have no other
women on your bed?”
As she recalled that terrible scene, her heart ached and her eyes became
even colder. Him having the gall to hug Fang Ying on their bed hurt her
even more than anybody else, and it hurt her even more when he exchanged
her for Fang Ying.
“Chu Li, did you overestimate me? Do you think that I will bear
whatever you are doing just simply because I can bear it?”
She had her own threshold, and while the threshold could be discussed,
whatever that fell below it was a no-go.
She felt even more terrible thinking about it and tried to break free
from him. She wanted to leave. She did not want to appear scorned before
him. Chu Li, however, tightly hugged her and shouted, “Rong Yan!”
When she calmed down, Chu Li exhaled. He said through gritted teeth, “I
did not touch her!”
Rong Yan was stunned and then bitterly smiled. She clearly saw it with
her own eyes. How dared he lie to her? She bit her lip to the point it
almost bled. While Chu Li was one who rarely explained such things, she
was also not as narrow-minded. It was not as though he had not touched
women before, but Fang Ying… And he still wanted to lie to her? She
could not stand that the most.
“You don’t believe me?” Chu Li’s angry eyes cooled down and
As Rong Yan quietly watched on, he calmly smiled and pulled out a gun
from his chest and flipped its safety off. Rong Yan was shocked,
panicked, and pressed on his hands. She angrily said, “What are you up
“If you don’t believe me, you can cripple me.” Chu Li put the gun
in Rong Yan’s hands and had her aim at his manhood. Such a move, while
comical, was said and done by Chu Li with a poker face that had a few
hints of anger.
Rong Yan was utterly shocked. He should not humor her in such a way. Was
he acting tough because he knew she would never shoot?
“You know how to fire a gun, right? I’ve seen you fire a gun, and not
too shabbily, so just pull the trigger.” Chu Li gently instructed Rong
Yan. Rong Yan flipped the safety of the gun on and laughingly scolded
him. “Are you crazy enough?”
“No!” Chu Li replied righteously. His stern, authoritative face
seemed to arrogantly say, ‘Do you have a problem with me acting
“If you are not keeping this game up, I am calling it a day.” Rong
Yan smiled and was about to leave when Chu Li grabbed her and hugged her
from behind. He rested his head on her shoulders and said pitifully,
“Yan Yan, just believe me once more, okay?”
A massive battle waged on in Rong Yan’s heart. Honestly speaking, she
did see something that day, but it was not complete. She did see him and
Fang Ying tangle on the bed… While she wanted to quietly enter, Chen
Yang stopped her and dragged her to the central atrium downstairs. She
did not have the courage to face them and left the castle in a rage. She
did not know what happened later.
Should she believe him?
She chided herself at how she cheapened herself so badly. Even if she did
not see how it ended, he and Fang Ying had indeed… Although he really
wanted to but did not give in to his physical desires, his heart was
lost. She minded the latter the most.
“Yan Yan…” Chu Li could not help but soften his voice. He
understood Rong Yan and he knew that she had not completely given up hope
on him. If she had completely given up hope on him, she would not have
come back. Prince William was the precedent.
This woman was one who never turned back.
“Ah Li, I’ll ask you this again. Before I was captured by Brother
Tian, did you have sex with Fang Ying?”
“I said I did not.”
“You lied! I clearly saw it!” Rong Yan could not help but roar. She
did not want to lose her cool, but she did not want him to deceive her
“Rong Yan, I’ll say it once again. I did not—wait, do you mean the
night before you went missing?” Chu Li flatly asked. Rong Yan nodded
stiffly. He could not help twist her ear and said, “I was at a banquet
at the Port of London that day, damn it. I only rushed back when I
received Zhou Zheng’s call. When did you see me having sex with Fang
When he finished roaring, he lapsed into deep thought and then asked,
“You did see it?”
Rong Yan nodded and described what she saw that day. Chu Li’s face sunk
and scolded Chen Yang in his heart. He could not keep that rascal by his
side anymore since he was capable of such a thing.
“I’ll explain to you what happened. My turn now. Do you believe your
eyes or me?” Chu Li coldly asked her.
She actually believed him, and that knot and conflicting feelings in her
heart inevitably lifted. This incident was the reason she was most
disappointed in him, and she would have had a much better impression of
him had that incident not happened.
“You can take it that I believe you.”
“Oh, you still sound a little aggrieved. Since that is the case, just
don’t believe me and take it that I have something going on with her.”
“Please don’t tell me that didn’t cross your mind? When she
returned, who was the person who looked to the skies, the moon, the
stars, and hoped she would be happy? Who was the person who accompanied
her day in and day out? You even slept with her.”
“Are you out to settle the score?”
“So what if I am out to settle the score? You have done one too many
things that could not be forgiven. If I had been that bit meaner, you
would never have seen me again. Ask yourself, hand to heart, whether the
things you did to me were overboard, will you?”
“Believe me or not, we are talking about this incident now.”
“Chu Li, please do not be nice just because I have been nice to you.”
“Who was the first to run out of words?”
“Are you picking a fight?” Rong Yan coolly looked at him with arms
Chu Li coldly harrumphed. He was not so stupid. She was finally happy,
and he would be foolish to do something akin to shooting himself in the
foot. He could not help but retort. “You might as well gouge this pair
of eyes of yours since they are useless.”
Rong Yan coolly looked at his lower half and said, “You might as well
cut off your little brother since it’s useless too.”
Chu Li, without changing his face, replied, “How could it be useless?
It will make you extremely happy.”
“Hmmph!” Rong Yan harrumphed. That jerkass.
Taking advantage of the situation was something Chu Li often did to Rong
Yan. When Rong Yan smiled, he immediately cupped her face and kissed her
lips. He hungrily nipped at the sweetness that belonged to him while Rong
Yan allowed him to. Chu Li and Fang Ying were thorns in her heart, and
what could she do about it since she was in love with him? He had to
choose. And while she was uncomfortable between the ambiguity between
Fang Ying and him, she…
Could not bear to leave him however much she wanted to.
Although she did think of leaving Chu Li, it was even more so after he
treated her that way. Her heart, however, did not follow her mind. If one
was deeply in love with a person, she may have been willing enough to die
in his hands.
“Yan Yan…” Chu Li looked at her deeply. “Stop being difficult and
sulking with me, please?”
As they had never talked like this in a long time, the atmosphere was
really good. Rong Yan could not help but miss it and deceived herself by
not mentioning Fang Ying. She knew that he was unhappy every time he
mentioned Fang Ying. She was the demon in his heart.
“If you are not saying anything, I’ll take it as a yes.” Chu Li
smiled as he brought her out of the conference hall. Chu Li said to Zhou
Zheng, who was still around, “Ah Zheng, go check on Chen Yang, that
Chu Li brought Rong Yan back to his room on the third floor. Many people
were staying there, and each room was similar to an apartment, each with
their own kitchen. Once Chu Li brought Rong Yan back to his room, they
straightaway headed for the kitchen.
Rong Yan was baffled. What was he up to?
“What else can you do in the kitchen? Cook of course!”
“…” Rong Yan was almost unable to catch her breath. To cook? At
this hour? She looked at her watch. It was one in the morning…”Do you
even have the heart to ask me to cook for you at this hour?”
Chu Li became aggrieved and said, “Can’t you see that I have become
skinnier? I did not eat well when you weren’t around.”
Rong Yan looked at him from top to bottom. He had indeed become skinner,
but… Was it of her concern? Who of the sane mind would make food at
this hour? Was she present to fill his tummy?
Rong Yan stared at Chu Li angrily while the latter turned away and opened
the fridge. There was nothing else but eggs in the fridge. He paused for
a moment and kissed Rong Yan’s face. “Yan Yan, I’ll get some
ingredients from Bai Ye. Wait for me.”
Before Rong Yan could reply, Chu Li disappeared. Rong Yan kicked the
fridge violently, and the eggs in the fridge rattled. To think that
Scheming Chu could think of getting ingredients from Bai Ye!
As she sulked, the doorbell rang. The door should be locked from the
inside. She frowned.
“Brother Chu, I…” She opened the door to see Fang Ying, and Fang
Ying, likewise, saw her. Fang Ying stopped mid-sentence and her face
