Su Ruhua fell silent for a moment and secretly pondered how she still had
enough face to have Su Man personally ask her for help. “Did my son
grab your lover?” Su Ruhua smiled.
Cheng Anya wanted to laugh but suppressed the laughter when she saw
Beauty Su’s incredulous face. She did feel that Su Man was quite an
enigmatic person who seemed to be living in a void as he did not seem the
slightest fazed by what others told him. He chose to filter whatever he
wanted to hear, and everything sounded not too different from him.
“No,” Su Man flatly replied. “Do you agree or not?”
As Su Ruhua pondered, Cheng Anya was curious about another question and
could not help but ask Su Man. “Su Man, why didn’t you previously
mentioned that Mo Ye and Mo Jue were your nephews?”
Mo Jue was even sitting opposite him, and she recalled him taking an
additional glance at Mo Jue without any additional action. It was,
frankly speaking, hard to believe that they were related by blood.
Was he simply too calm, or were they freaking out?
Su Man raised his eyebrows and asked in return, “Did any of you ask me
that question before?”
Cheng Anya was stunned into silence.
‘Beauty Su, your reply is nothing short of genius. Shouldn’t you
volunteer the information? Why are you only saying when other people are
asking? You know what is in plain sight, and surely no normal person
could make sense of your thoughts?’
Cheng Anya had a distant look in her eyes.
The beauty was indeed beautiful, and she really did not know what to say.
If Wei Wei knew what was going on, she would have puked in a chain
Beauty Su actually did not directly answer Cheng Anya’s question. He
also did not know that Mo Ye and Mo Jue were his nephews back then, so he
only took an additional glance at Mo Jue since he had a pair of eyes that
resembled those of Su Ruhua.
Purple eyes were extremely hard to come by, let alone how pure the eyes
were. A child in each generation of the Su family would have purple eyes
that were clear and charming. He was curious and took an additional
glance. Since the Mo brothers’ eyes did not resemble Su Ruhua’s eyes,
on a glance, one could not tell that he had inherited that pair of purple
eyes from Su Ruhua. It was after they left that Su Man asked Su Ruhua and
learned that those two were his nephews. He was also utterly shocked then.
Su Man actually knew little about Su Ruhua as he was just a child who
could not speak when Mo Jue and Mo Ye were born. The Su family was in its
most chaotic times and was embroiled in a tussle over the Saudi royal
family feud. Not only so, Su Ruyu even offended the godfather of the
Mafia then, and a series of reasons caused the Su family to be wiped out
save the three of them.
When Su Man was an infant, he was injected with a toxin called
‘death’ that stunted his growth and his intellect. Su Ruyu spent four
years curing him, and she brought Su Man with her in those four years as
they fled the persecution of the Mafia. The Mafia had put a price on Su
Ruyu’s head then. Having to avoid countless killers and personally
brewing medicine for Su Man left a toll on her. Until Su Man was cured
and the turmoil in Riyadh over then did the Saudi royal family restore
the honor of the Su family. To avoid Su Man suffering with her and end up
killed, Su Ruyu sent the infant Su Man back to the Su family to be taken
care of by the old butler. The older Su’s title of count remained, and
peace ensued. Su Ruyu then disappeared from Riyadh and nobody knew where
she went, and how she eventually tamed the underworld.
Due to the chaos back then, Su Ruhua lost contact with the Mo brothers
for a few years. During her siblings’ most difficult times, she
vanished without a trace and nobody knew what exactly happened back then.
Many who were related to the Su family secretly speculated if Su Ruhua
had disappeared without a trace to protect her two children, regardless
of her sister and brother’s fate. She appeared, squarely after the
honor of the Su family was restored and after Su Ruyu single-handedly
diverted the Mafia’s underworld influence, only after peace ensued.
Su Man could not remember what happened then, and the old butler told him
many things to pass. Su Ruhua had no intention to hide information from
him, and he knew he had two sisters who loved him dearly back then and
did not hide anything from Su Man despite her four-year absence.
The extremely beautiful sisters were the ideal partner of all young
people in Riyadh back then. In terms of looks and talent, they were on
par with each other and none outshone the other. Few have actually seen
the sisters. While Ruyu seemed more mystical back then, it was Ruhua who
was more secretive as nobody knew where and what Ruhua was up to for a
third of her life.
Since his growth was delayed by four years, Su Man’s body was never in
good shape although the toxins in his body had been neutralized. Ever
since Su Man could remember, he remembered Su Ruhua watching over him
until he had fully recovered, which was ten years later. If the old
butler did not tell Su Man whatever had transpired within the Su family
back then, he would simply assume that he had only one sister. Ever since
he was born, he saw Su Ruyu except when he was four. Once he had
completely recovered, Su Ruhua led a semi-reclusive life and would only
meet him once every two to three years.
She said that she was looking for a person and went around the world
several times to no avail. Su Man did not know who she was looking for.
It might be Su Ruyu, or probably somebody else. When he was ten, Su Ruhua
told him everything and then left Riyadh. Su Man had always recalled that
he had a sister, and Su Man, when he was much older and able, tried to
find said sister but failed since too much time had passed. Hearsay had
it that Su Ruyu had perished together with the godfather of the Mafia,
and hearsay also had it that Su Ruyu became his mistress, only to commit
suicide to escape the chaos of yesteryear. Su Man did not know the truth
and gave up searching for it since he could not find it.
The Su siblings were probably cold, and Su Man was probably the coldest
amongst them as he never asked about Su Ruhua. He, however, knew Su Ruhua
had two sons, and he was not the most concerned about who they were until
he saw Mo Jue, whose eyes extremely resembled Su Ruhua’s, then asked Su
Ruhua about them.
Su Man never quite understood his sister although he lived with her for
ten years. Since young, Su Ruhua’s looks had never quite changed. It
seemed as though she did not age. She rarely mentioned her two children
to Su Man, and young Su Man did not quite like her two sons and showed
some slight disgust whenever he mentioned them.
It was much later that he slowly pondered about it and then deliberately
suppressed it. He only heard her murmur once about how she missed them a
little, and there was scant mention of them afterward. Su Man wondered if
all mothers loved their children. Su Ruhua seemed to be the exception.
Even though she left after taking care of Su Man for ten years, she did
not return to the Mo brothers. According to what he knew, he probably saw
Su Ruhua more than the Mo brothers had. Su Ruhua, for reasons he did not
know, made no mention of that and he did not ask anything. Since it was
none of his concern, he naturally did not ask anything.
He was guessing as to what happened in those four years that Su Ruhua
could not come to terms with and hence exiled herself from it. Su Man had
no idea who Su Ruhua’s husband was.
Or to put it differently, Su Ruhua was never married and nobody knew who
the biological father of the Mo brothers was.
Everybody has their own demons, and even Su Ruhua, who seemed this
easy-going, was no exception. Some things, like how Su Ruyu crossed the
godfather of the Mafia back then and triggered a bloodbath of the Su
family that eventually led to a massive upheaval of the underworld, would
never be open knowledge although twenty years had passed. When these
events were mentioned, they undoubtedly stirred hearts. Nobody, save the
persons involved, would ever know what exactly happened. Since few knew
exactly what happened, most of them were making deductions that were
extremely far off from what actually happened.
Su Man was extremely certain of one thing: a massive burden lay between
his two sisters. From how the old butler redirected the questions, Su Man
could infer that Su Ruhua had never mentioned Su Ruyu save the
heart-to-heart talk they had ten years ago. It was as though Su Ruyu was
not part of the family.
An old servant who survived the upheaval in the Su family back then once
said that the young madam and the second young madam were on extremely
good terms but stopped talking to each other for whatever reason. The
second young madam was typically quiet and somewhat cold, creating a gap
between them eventually. That, along with the four years where Su Ruhua
abandoned them, caused the gulf between the sisters to grow and hence
deepened their misunderstanding.
These, however, became a secret since Su Ruyu disappeared without a trace.
When Cheng Anya saw Su Ruhua’s face, she knew that she was very
unwilling to appear. Cheng Anya hence felt baffled as it wouldn’t have
been difficult for a mother to convince her children to free somebody. If
Ning Ning had detained somebody, she would have considered raising them
with Ning Ning if somebody pleaded with her.
Su Ruhua crossed her legs and looked down without speaking. A hoarse roar
suddenly came from the adjacent room. Su Ruhua raised her eyebrows.
“Fine. I’ll agree to your terms. I’ll tell them, but I won’t
bother myself with whether they will release the people you want.”
“Very well then.” This was the largest concession Su Ruhua could
make, and Su Man did not insist Su Ruhua personally make an appearance.
“Sister Beautiful, do you know what Mo Ye and Mo Jue did?” Cheng Anya
asked in trepidation.
“What did they do again?” Su Ruhua shook her head and asked in return.
Su Ruhua seemed to be hell-bent on looking for somebody and had distanced
herself from matters of the world for years. She did not want to
interfere in the feuds of the world, especially those involving the
Mafia. Su Ruhua clearly felt complicated about it.
She was unwilling to have her children involve themselves with the Mafia,
but she could not control many things and decided to see no evil, hear no
evil, and ignore all.
Her counter-question left Cheng Anya scrambling for an answer. When she
looked at such a kind-looking Su Ruhua, she felt that reproving somebody
else’s children was not the most appropriate thing to do. Although the
Mo brothers were their enemies, they did not really do anything wrong
save hurting those close to them. While she felt disgusted at them for
harming those they cared, the brothers— from another perspective—were
not necessarily in the wrong. Most women felt that the struggles of men
Cheng Anya simply laughed them off and did not say anything else.
Su Ruhua did not pursue the question. “Butler, lead Anya downstairs.
Man Man, do go to the adjacent room to look at the girl and see whether
she could be saved.”
The Su family was extremely adept at dealing with viruses. This trait was
inherited through every generation since Su Man’s grandfather. Su Ruyu
and Su Man were contenders for dealing with viruses whereas she was not.
Su Man nodded. “Anya is pregnant. There is a recipe for potions here
that you can refer to.”
He passed a slip of paper to the butler. Su Ruhua was elated and
hurriedly congratulated Anya. “Anya, congratulations on being a mother
Miss Cheng stroked her nose in embarrassment. “My son is actually seven
“If it weren’t for her son, I wouldn’t have traveled this far.”
Su Man then added.
“…How young indeed,” Su Ruhua said.
Cheng Anya blushed. Dana accompanied the old butler downstairs to rest.
Su Ruhua looked at Dana’s back and smiled. “She is a really nice
lady.” Su Ruhua then turned to Su Man and said, “Man Man, when can
the Su family expect an heir?”
“You have two!” Su Man coldly harrumphed.
Su Ruhua frowned. “That’s different. Daddy and Mommy would have been
extremely upset, but I am not your stereotypical parent and feel that I
have let them down.” Su Ruhua paused before roaring in indignation.
“Our family never had this precedent. What’s with you not having a
thing for women?”
Su Man ignored her.
Su Ruhua scooted up to him and asked, “Man Man, could there be this
chance that you actually like women but have never encountered ‘the
one’? Maybe fate has not allowed it, no?”
Su Ruhua was lost for words and raised her eyebrows even higher. She
sounded even more shrill. “Do you really have a thing for men!?”
“How trivial!” Beauty Su threw her a cold glance and stood up to walk
to the adjacent room.
Su Ruhua almost teared up…
If she knew which man managed to seduce her perfect brother, she would
castrate him without any question.
The roaring from the adjacent room died down and became a low roar. When
Su Man entered the room, he saw a person with unkempt and long hair tied
to a silk chain who tried to break free from the chains crazily.
Blood dripped from her onto the ground.
Beauty Su frowned and walked closer. When he saw her face, his face was
full of shock.
