Ye Wei and Meng Lianling toured the surrounding islands until the
evening. Meng Lianling was a very dutiful and good guide. Ye Wei managed
to see the unique features of each island and even had a sumptuous
seafood lunch. She had a lot of fun.
Life on the islands was actually better as they had complete and
modernized amenities. The only difference was the much fewer skyscrapers
and shops which carried fewer goods. The shops had what they should have,
and the living standards of the people on the island were high. The
smiles of the people were much kinder and simpler because they were very
content with their current lifestyle.
According to Meng Lianling, the islanders only had such good lives since
the past four to five years. Ever since the Mo brothers took over, the
islands underwent a massive upheaval. The islanders who used to fish and
barter trade for a living did not have to do those now.
Most of the effort went to Big Boss Mo and Mo Jue because they did not
like the bustling city life and moved to the islands. Since they did not
want to shortchange themselves and live in some backward countryside, Big
Boss Mo strived to develop the surrounding islands to lead to the scale
of things today.
The most attention-grabbing feature of the islands was the rich emerald
deposits. The islands produced emerald on a huge scale, and the emerald
that was extremely expensive in the outside world was extremely cheap
here. Ye Wei saw the hawkers sell what she thought were knockoffs and she
touched them only to realize they were natural emeralds that were hard to
come by. They seemed like stones on sales, but that was because the local
youths and ladies had their unique accessories and they preferred woven
or shell-based natural ornaments. They hence took extremely little
interest in pearls and emeralds and sold them piece by piece at extremely
cheap prices item by item. When they sold them to outsiders, however,
they sold them in bulk at exorbitant prices. Ye Wei had to admit that Big
Boss Mo had taught the locals how to do business extremely well.
Big Boss Mo and Mo Jue relied on the emerald on the surrounding islands
as their main source of income and how they went about building their
empire. While Ye Wei did not take a liking to Big Boss Mo, Big Boss
Mo’s charisma was undoubtedly tops.
Who could turn the aboriginal-like lifestyle of islanders of more than
ten islands into such a bustling metropolis in the span of a few years?
It could be said that not everybody had such charisma.
Given how Mo Jue could not be bothered about the affairs of the world and
only focused on the underworld, Big Boss Mo was undoubtedly the one to
whom most of the credit was due as Mo Jue would have contributed
This was what Meng Lianling said along the way. What she saw seemed to be
what she had heard, and that could not be denied. She felt that the Mo
brothers were eccentric since they did not like to live among bustling
crowds but were unwilling to properly befriend loneliness. They just had
to make a place like a city, bustling with life and people.
Meng Lianling claimed that there was a difference. The people here were
simple-minded, kind, and would not play mind games, so it was much more
comfortable for them to live here.
Ye Wei took a look around, and it did seem to be the case. The residents
seemed kind, warm, and wore all their emotions on their faces. They did
not make people feel tired and weary.
One could only say that the Mo brothers did not like the bustling crowds
but preferred to watch a crowd. What eccentric people.
Big Boss Mo’s mansion was by the seaside and would be a short distance
once they reached ashore. The mansion was often uninhabited because the
two brothers both stayed at Mo Jue’s mansion. Ever since Mo Jue brought
her here, Mo Ye moved to the seaside mansion.
Ye Wei shrugged her hands and smiled it away.
Meng Lianling waved and bade goodbye to Ye Wei. She arranged to meet Ye
Wei for a walk the next day, and Ye Wei had no second opinion. After Ye
Wei acknowledged it, she returned to Mo Jue’s mansion.
The seaside mansion was extremely spacious and Mo Ye could clearly see Ye
Wei and Meng Lianling return from the balcony on the second floor. His
gaze was deep and extremely displeased. While his displeasure was
targeted at Ye Wei, his anger was dispelled when he saw Meng Lianling
smile extremely happily.
When Meng Lianling entered the mansion, Ding Ke greeted her and went to
work. Big Boss Mo, wearing a v-collar sweater and leisure pants, slowly
came down the stairs. He seemed much more svelte and handsome. Under the
diffused light, he seemed as though he had descended from the skies. If
he had a happy smile on him, Meng Lianling would have thought that he was
an angel who was lost on earth.
But it was a shame that his looks were a 180 from that of an angel and
made him seem as though he was in cahoots with the devil.
“Ye, I’m back.” Meng Lianling waved her loot and slumped onto the
sofa lazily. Her legs were a little tired after a whole day of walking.
Mo Ye took a look at the few bags on the table and broke into a cold
smile. “Why didn’t you tell me that you went to look for Ye Wei?”
“I told you that last night.” Meng Lianling smiled and raised her
eyebrows playfully. “Are you angry?”
Her overly lively temperament made it hard for people to get angry with
her, and even Mo Ye could not do anything with her. Even if he were
angry, it was not directed at her. “Lianling, you know well that I do
not like you drawing too close to her. Do you really like to be friends
What was wrong with liking to be friends with her? Meng Lianling toyed
with the statement. While she did not like to make friends with just
anybody, Ye Wei, however, gave her good vibes, and her character and
charm were attention-grabbing. Most killers who had reached Ye Wei’s
level would be extremely slow to show their prowess and become
unpredictable. Ye Wei was just the opposite.
Like a shining pearl, she would not be able to conceal that aura of hers.
She did not have the reservation of women but was arrogant instead and
put her charm on full display. She was a little jealous of Ye Wei. What
did she have to be this brazen? She was openly telling everybody that she
was Ye Wei, and she was blatantly goading others on.
While her jealousy remained jealousy, she liked to draw close to such
The most important reason, which she could not afford to let Mo Ye know,
was that she wanted to find Eleven, and even kill Eleven, through Ye Wei.
“Ye, you are too biased toward Wei Wei. Brother Jue likes her this
much, and she has her plus points. I do like to be friends with her, and
we had a lot of fun today. It has been a long time since I enjoyed myself
this much.” Meng Lianling smiled as she stood up and jabbed Mo Ye’s
flat face. “Come on! Stop being angry and smile.”
“Sounds like you are unhappy with me, huh?” Mo Ye sounded even colder.
Meng Lianling laughed until she bent over and shouted how she was
wronged. The answer did not add up to the question.
“Ye, stop being so calculative. I only have her as a friend, and you
bear to see me do without this friend?” Meng Lianling seemed aggrieved.
Mo Ye used to dote on her and nobody could refute him on that. Meng
Lianling was the exception. She was initially not so because she was
afraid of Mo Ye. As he did not like that feeling, he indulged Meng
Lianling and she had a few days to gloat about it.
Her behavior was the result of his doting!
“Even if I say it, you won’t listen. Go get some food,” Mo Ye
Meng Lianling knew that he had compromised and his lips broke into a
smile. She happily hooked her arm around his elbow as they went towards
the dining table. Meng Lianling knew that Mo Ye would always yield to her
and never deny her what she hoped for.
She was proud of that because the man who had the world at his feet
treated her as his whole world. Any woman would be proud of such an honor
and certainly feel accomplished winning the heart of such a man.
There was, however, some uneasiness lurking beneath this pride.
“Ye, if I was not the one you saved a long time ago, would you still
treat me this well?” Meng Lianling asked.
Mo Ye frowned and did not reply. He had her sit down and then said,
“Stop asking such hypothetical questions.”
“You have not answered me!” Meng Lianling insisted.
Mo Ye took a look at her and asked in return, “What do you think?”
Meng Lianling was at a loss for words and laughed. “How could I have
asked such frivolous questions? Chow time.”
When Ye Wei returned to the mansion, Mo Jue was making steamed fish.
There were already three to four dishes on the table that looked and
smelled good. Ye Wei threw her bags on the sofa and said, “Gorgeous Mo
Jue, I am back.”
“I am not blind,” Mo Jue coldly replied, but he did not look at her,
trying to be as cool as he could be. If he had said the same whilst
holding a gun, he would have scared the daylights out of people. If he
said that with a spatula in his hands, his coldness would have to be
As she had digested what she ate for lunch, she was hungry and helped
herself to the red braised pork with her hands. The dishes today were
totally different, and Ye Wei secretly wondered to herself that Mo Jue
was one who could be coaxed by telling him what you wanted. If you did
not tell him what he wanted, he would prepare things the way he would. If
you told him what you wanted, he would really change if he were in the
She had told him that she did not like the same food day in and day out,
and now, she had totally different dishes.
Mo Jue served the last dish and beat her hands. “Go wash your hands!”
Ye Wei chuckled happily and obediently went to wash her hands. She then
quickly returned to the dining table. “Gorgeous Mo Jue, were you
possessed by some chef? Your dishes are getting better.”
“Hmmph!” Mo Jue coldly harrumphed. Ye Wei spied a cookbook not too
far away, and she was slightly stunned. She took a sneak peek at Mo Jue
and gave him a thumbs-up in her heart.
Badass! That aptly described him.
He quietly tucked in and did not talk to her. As Ye Wei removed the fish
bones, she pondered about whether he was unhappy from being left alone
the whole day. If that wasn’t the case, why did he give her a sour face?
“Gorgeous Mo Jue, bring me out to play tomorrow if you have time,
okay?” Ye Wei probed him.
“I’m not free.” Mo Jue flat out refused.
