Mo Jue looked at her sullenly. Was he mesmerized by her? Would he? What a
joke! He would only think of gouging out the eyes of all the men present
for making nonsensical guesses about him being mesmerized by her.
Ye Wei looked at him teasingly and said, “You are such a tease. If you
are not mesmerized by me, just say so. If you are indeed mesmerized by
me, just say so and I will not make fun of you. If you were not
mesmerized by me, we would not even be a couple. Don’t you agree?”
“You… sure are bulldozing your way through this argument.” When it
came to arguments, even ten Mo Jues are not Ye Wei’s match. He was
utterly flustered and angry. Weren’t they talking about her doing an
erotic dance? How did they even get to him being mesmerized? She had some
idea how the argument went and said, “Who told you that one half of a
couple must be mesmerized by the other? Couples who seem totally
different at first glance are one too many.”
Ye Wei nodded in agreement. She gently said, “Let’s get a divorce?”
“What did you say?” Mo Jue flew into a rage. His anger which had just
calmed suddenly burned up. He became extremely malicious and insidious.
“If we are totally different from each other, we can get a divorce. Go
find somebody totally different from you then.” Ye Wei shrugged and
leaped onto the railings and sat on them. The sea breeze blew on as
people lived carefreely on the island.
She could not be bothered with Mo Jue’s sullen face. He pulled her down
and said murderously, “Fat hope!”
He had forgotten that they were not even married, let alone get a
divorce. He, but not Ye Wei, knew that her ‘divorce’ meant leaving
him. It was something he was unable to accept.
He had spent so much effort for what reason? Ye Wei had better not have
the slightest idea of leaving him. If she insisted, he would spare no
cost to imprison her on the island.
As it was an extreme method, he would rather she hated him than leave him.
“Uh, calm down, calm down…” Ye Wei could sense that he was
extremely angry. As she was worried about her life, she felt that she had
to give in and said, “I was just saying.”
Mo Jue coldly looked at her with eyes like those of a venomous snake.
Ye Wei felt a chill and could not help but wonder whether this person
still liked her as much as before. Did he like her to the point he could
not even tolerate a joke? Why did she not even feel happy at all?
She did not like emotions a tad too intense as they felt like a pair of
hands around her neck that could asphyxiate her anytime. She disliked it
to the point of hating it.
“Wei Wei, don’t you even try to leave me. You will not be able to pay
the price of doing so!” Mo Jue, as though he was swearing, flatly
replied. He could not care whether Ye Wei could remember what he said and
forced the idea into her mind. “If you even think of leaving me, I
swear that you will find the outcome unforgettable.”
Ye Wei was slightly shocked and looked at him quietly in shock, anger,
and even more so in fear.
“Mo Jue…” She called his name in a daze and had no idea what to say
to him. To put it differently, Mo Jue simply did not even want to hear
her say anything and simply looked at her deeply. As the two of them
quietly stood off against each other along the railings by the river,
nobody, like in previous confrontations, was going to budge.
The calm on the river reflected the bonfires along the shore. It was calm
amidst the liveliness, and there was the strong fragrance of the sea
breeze along with the lightness of the river breeze. The atmosphere
between them, however, was intense.
They were like two parallel lines that could not converge however hard
They each had their bottom lines.
“Did you do something which you are too ashamed to face me?” Ye Wei
Mo Jue’s face sank and he squinted dangerously. “What did you say?”
He was slightly panicked. She was clearly brilliant enough to accurately
guess somebody’s inner world from their words and actions. Facing her
now was no easier than facing her before.
“I am just curious as to why you are so… uptight about me, about me
leaving, and that I recall something,” Ye Wei plainly replied. She
already had these doubts since a few days ago.
It was just that he was too obvious compared to a few nights ago, and she
had subconsciously connected the dots.
“How absurd!” Mo Jue coldly harrumphed.
Ye Wei smiled and said, “I am really interested to know what went on
between us. If you don’t mind telling me everything in detail, I might
be able to recall something.”
Recalling he had long prepared a story and could easily deceive her, Mo
Jue coldly laughed. It was just…
“You wanted to kill me.”
“You were too loyal to your organization and I’d rather you forget
everything and begin afresh. It would have been miles better than you
suddenly feeling that you cannot face up to your organization and killing
me,” Mo Jue said expressionlessly as though he was narrating somebody
Ye Wei frowned and said, “Which organization do I belong to?”
“I will not say it!” Mo Jue replied. “Wei Wei, can you stop being
so mindful about what happened before?”
“Considering I do not know anything, I do not mind it. Since we are
beginning afresh, there is nothing for me to mind. Gorgeous Mo Jue, in
this case, could you also just empty your mind? Only that would be fair,
no?” Ye Wei mused and dispelled the sullen atmosphere earlier.
He could hear that she was downplaying her concern and unhappiness.
He had no intention to go on any further and remained quiet. This was all
he could say.
“Let’s go home!” He repeated as he coldly stood up and showed her
his cold and resolute silhouette.
Ye Wei suddenly smiled and hooked an arm around his waist, gently
slumping into his embrace. “Dear Gorgeous Mo Jue, don’t you think
that you ought to come out for a walk a little more often? I see you
cooping yourself up in the house and not really talking to me. Don’t
you find that boring? Coming out, talking, and allowing your emotions to
run sure makes you feel a lot better. I really dislike seeing your sullen
face all day long. Doesn’t coming out make you livelier and more
He was rather caught off guard by her sudden change. While he was indeed
a little off-whack tonight, he would not even describe himself as full of
The term simply did not fit him.
“Let’s go!” He violently yanked Ye Wei forward. Ye Wei smiled and
yielded to his slightly messed up self. As they walked, they ran into Mo
Ye and Meng Lianling who came up from below.
Mo Jue’s gaze sank and turned to Ye Wei. The latter wiped her smile off
her face. When Big Boss Mo and she first met in the mansion, he had left
a strong impression on her. She was upfront with her affections. She
could not have liked him since he did not like her despite him having the
same face as Mo Jue.
“Brother, Lianling.” Mo Jue did not greet them particularly
enthusiastically. He was a little surprised to run into Meng Lianling and
asked, “When did you arrive?”
“I just reached this afternoon and happened to join him out for a walk
in the evening as it was bustling. Brother Jue, it has been quite a
while.” Meng Lianling came over to hug him with a smile. Mo Ye had no
particular emotion and Mo Jue did not push her away but merely softly
Ye Wei raised her eyebrows and could not help but take another look at
Meng Lianling. Mo Jue extremely resented people touching him, even at his
sleeves, and he had a threatening look when so many women looked at him
in a smitten and loving manner. She thought he really disliked women.
“How irritating of you! Why can’t you smile?” Meng Lianling pouted
as Mo Jue looked at her and lifted her chin. He hinted to her to use this
move on his elder brother. Meng Lianling broke into laughter and reached
out to Ye Wei. “Hi, Miss Ye! I am Meng Lianling.”
“Hi, there!” Ye Wei politely shook hands with her, knowing that the
Mo brothers would not introduce the two ladies to each other. Since Meng
Lianling was able to manage herself, Ye Wei was not particularly
concerned. Meng Lianling, to her, was just another person.
“Miss Ye’s dance was extremely good and sexy! I became extremely
envious as I watched it.” Meng Lianling praised her effusively. Ye Wei
saw somebody’s face change and Meng Lianling broke into laughter.
“Brother Jue, don’t think you think that it was very nice to watch
Mo Jue coldly harrumphed without replying and turned to look at Mo Ye. Mo
Ye, playing off Mo Jue’s vibes, said, “Since Lianling wants to learn
dancing, Ye Wei can teach her how to do so.”
Since Big Boss Mo always sounded as though he was giving orders, Mo Jue
was used to it. Both brothers spoke in a similar manner anyway. When they
encountered a proud Ye Wei, things changed. She laughed and said, “Miss
Meng, I should apologize. I do not offer dancing lessons.”
Meng Lianling was slightly stunned. She did not expect her to be flat-out
rejected. She could not help but look at Big Boss Mo, whose face had
become much more sullen. Few could outright refuse him.
Seeing that things were not good, Meng Lianling quickly said, “It’s
okay, it’s okay. I really admired how you danced, and I won’t insist
that Miss Ye give me lessons if it’s not convenient for you.”
“Little Jue!” Mo Ye shouted.
Mo Jue, who had always remained silent, looked at him and said, “It has
nothing to do with me.”
Mo Jue was displeased. Meng Lianling looked at him in blame and hinted to
him to show some restraint. She smiled at Ye Wei apologetically and Ye
Wei pulled Mo Jue over and said, “Gorgeous Mo Jue, let’s go home.”
They then left.
Mo Ye, in anger, said, “Ye Wei, you…”
“Okay, okay, it’s okay. You are weird too. Didn’t you say you
didn’t want me to learn how to dance like this? You ought to be happy
that she didn’t offer to teach me, so what’s with the anger?” Meng
Lianling rolled her eyes at him.
“She clearly did not give a damn about me.”
“You didn’t say it the most politely.” Meng Lianling laughed and
sounded a little cunning amidst her gentleness. “If I don’t get to
learn it, so be it. I just came by to say hi, and for all you know, I may
even get together with her to have some fun.”
“No!” Mo Ye decisively replied. “Lianling, I will not allow you to
get close to her.”
“She is too dangerous, and I will not allow you to take the slightest
risk. There is no room for argument here.” Mo Ye expressionlessly
warned her. “Listen to me, damn it!”
“Since she has already lost her memory, what is so dangerous about her?
You sure are getting a tad too jumpy.” Meng Lianling laughed
unintentionally. “It seems like everybody apart from you are
Mo Ye coldly looked at her and Meng Lianling did not seem to mind his
cold look. “I just feel that she has quite a nice personality that I
like. You know that I do not have many friends.”
“Lianling, can you stop being stubborn?”
“You are too biased, and that explains why she did not show you
face.” Meng Lianling turned around to scold Mo Ye as she laughed. She
hooked her arm around his arm and laughed. “Let’s go and watch the
As Ye Wei pulled Mo Jue toward the mansion, she looked back and asked Mo
Jue, “Who was that woman?”
“Meng Lianling.” Mo Jue’s reply was short.
“Duh! I know her name. My question is how she is related to you. She
seems familiar.” Ye Wei was curious because any women whom the Mo
brothers allowed to draw close were no simple women.
“Lianling saved my brother a few years ago,” Mo Jue said as he looked
at her. “She is a Russian operative who saw my dying brother during a
mission back then. She not only saved him but even went on to help him
quell terrorist activity in Eastern Europe. We are extremely thankful to
“She managed to settle what your brother could not? She is stronger
than you?” Ye Wei exclaimed in shock.
Mo Jue shook his head. “That’s not the case. My brother was poisoned
because he consumed two types of food that should not have been eaten
together. His food poisoning caused all his effort to go down the
“…” Food poisoning? Why didn’t he die from it?
“Is she still a Russian operative?”
“She is no longer an operative. She had to steal military secrets on
top of wet work. In short, she was doing extremely dangerous jobs. My
brother hoped that she would stop being an operative and did not allow
her to stay in such a dangerous line. There is only one person who is
privy to this list of operatives, and I doctored the list to remove her
name after he died from an illness. With her name erased, she is as good
as non-existent.” Mo Jue answered her without hiding anything.
The moonlight gently poured down on the trees on both sides that stood
quietly and serenely. The moonlight covered them in a gentle and
mysterious sheen whilst the two of them held hands and walked. From the
back, they seemed like a harmonious couple in love with each other.
Ye Wei suddenly had a weird feeling. Walking down this road could just
lead to the best possible ending for them.
Mo Jue tilted his head and looked at her. He asked, “Why are you so
curious about Lianling?”
“I am even more curious as to why you would honestly tell me all
these.” Ye Wei smiled. She didn’t seem suitable to listen to these
“If you want to know something, I won’t hide it from you,” Mo Jue
flatly replied albeit firmly. Apart from this emotional trap that he
laid, he could be honest about other things. Mo Jue was not one to
patronize people. He would honestly reply if he could. If he could not
reply, he would simply remain silent.
Ye Wei simply smiled. He really believed that she would buy what he said.
She was undeniably in an extremely good mood.
“Your brother likes her?”
“You’re such a gossip.”
“I’m curious!” Ye Wei smiled sneakily.
“My brother is madly in love with her.”
