100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-535
Chapter 535: Anthony and Little Seven 12 – Sentimental Anthony
Eleven’s eyes were wide open as she could not believe that people as
shameless as he existed. She was extremely infuriated and her anger
rocketed in an instant at how he jeopardized himself to play her concern
for him against her. He was too much!
The ice was extremely slippery and the two of them were extremely quick
on ice. As she thought of how quick Anthony was, him losing his footing
and slipping would have had unthinkable consequences. She, without
thinking, immediately turned back to grab him. Little did she expect it
to be his gimmick to lure her to turn back. Anthony was really too much!
How could he manipulate her thoughts and be so certain she would turn
back? If she did not have those thoughts for him, she would have never
turned back. Would he then rather he really fell?
As she was extremely infuriated, she could not be bothered with Anthony
kissing her and forcefully pushed her palms against his chest. Anthony,
seeming to expect her actions, gently held her wrists and wrapped his
fingers around his palms and locked fingers with her. Eleven’s forceful
palms were ingeniously neutralized by his tight grip on her.
He never let go of Eleven throughout the process and still kissed her
deeply. As he planted his warm lips on her, he merely sucked on her lips
and did not dare to go overboard.
Eleven’s mind was in a mess and she could not recall anything as though
her reasoning was lost to a cooking pot. She was caught off guard when he
kissed and her face was clearly reddened. Eleven was terrified at how her
heart palpitated and the scent of his cologne made her tizzy and lose all
semblance of reasoning. Only he utterly filled her eyes, heart…
There were whistles and screams around from both men and women. While the
two of them were strangers, they felt that this scene they saw was
extremely beautiful—a wintry snowscape accompanied by the perfect match
who was in love with each other. Their romance was somewhat mysterious
yet romantic, and the young men and women who were genuinely happy for
the couple cheered them on.
Anthony kissed Eleven until she was almost out of breath. Eleven could
not help but look away, and Anthony was clearly unsatisfied. He slightly
leaned forward and pecked the edges of her lips that were reddened from
the kiss. When Eleven saw his gentle countenance and deeply passionate
eyes, her heart thumped and she struggled to wriggle away.
Anthony seemed to know her thoughts and was unwilling to let go of her.
He held her waist tightly and smiled. “Where are you going?”
She could not respond, and the whistles and cheers from the crowd still
remained. Eleven was still trapped in his embrace and could not escape.
Eleven eschewed her weakness…
“I won Little Seven!” Anthony looked at her deeply as he smiled.
When this was mentioned, Eleven felt a wave of anger come upon her and
she stared at Anthony angrily. “What kind of person are you to resort
to such trickery? Trickery aside, didn’t you know the danger you had
put yourself in earlier? What if you had…”
As Eleven talked, she felt that she was a tad too agitated. Her look
betrayed her mood. She then kept quiet and quietly stared at him.
Although Anthony was scolded, he was in an even better mood and smiled
even more generously. “Are you worried about me?”
“No, I am not.” Eleven vehemently denied as she tried to stand away
from Anthony. Anthony saw through what was on her mind, and she was
clearly not Anthony’s match in that field.
He would not allow her to have her wish and said, “You are my
girlfriend from now on.”
“I…” Eleven panicked and almost bit her tongue. Now that was
mentioned, she looked around in panic and saw the young men and women
around. Some of them were starting to play whilst others were talking
about the two of them. She then realized… was it too late to regret?
“Little Seven, what’s there to regret?”
“I’m not asking about the how, but the end result,” Anthony flatly
said as he held her hand and smiled. “Little Seven, are you that afraid
“Please don’t provoke me, I won’t fall for it,” Eleven coldly
said. Since she had made a promise, she would not renege on it. “I
“Are you serious?
Eleven nodded, and Anthony suddenly burst into a big grinning smile,
hugged Eleven, and spun on the ice. Eleven thought she would have a heavy
heart, but she saw his happy face and felt this indescribable elation as
she smiled uncontrollably. She then realized that they were still on the
ice, and would be in a tight spot if they fell.
“Anthony, stop spinning me. I’m feeling giddy.”
When Anthony heard her, he quickly put her down although he was still
extremely elated. As he held her hand, he did not know what to say and
suddenly held her face and kissed her on her lips.
This guy… Eleven could not help him and simply let him be.
The two of them ice skated for a while more. They were not far from the
Kurts’ home, so the two of them placed their ice skates in a visible
place before walking around in the snow. As Anthony was not famous, he
did not walk next to her and instead held her hand with exceptional pride
Eleven smiled bitterly.
“What exactly do you like about me?” Eleven was extremely perplexed
as she was not one whom the boys fancied. When she recalled her original,
and current, self, she suddenly felt extremely solemn.
Oh, yes indeed, how could she forget?
Little Seven was lively, adorable, smart, and extremely likable. As for
Eleven… Anthony liked Little Seven and not Eleven.
Eleven felt her heart tense and slightly regretted why did she become
another person with no way to back out? If she could not change her
ice-cold character, Anthony would become extremely disappointed if he
learned that she was a cold and uninteresting person.
She could not describe how she felt but felt she was slightly
disappointed. While it did not sound too serious, she was subconsciously
thinking about how she never really gained anything and hence did not
quite regret this loss.
“You’re good in everything,” Anthony said. He seemed to sense
Eleven’s emotions fluctuating. “Dear Little Seven, there are many
sides to a person. You, regardless of which side you put on, are always
yourself,” he said meaningfully.
Eleven looked at Anthony in shock and he smiled back at her. She felt a
little weird, but could not quite put a finger to why she felt this
“You seem to know everything.”
“Little Seven, you sure look really solemn. I’m less than ten minutes
into being your boyfriend, and surely you won’t’ just let me go this
quickly?” Anthony looked at her with doggy-eyes and tried to divert her
Eleven indeed broke into raucous laughter. “What nonsense are you
“You’ve scared the daylights out of me! Really! I thought people
would be booted off this position after a short time, and I was planning
to fight on for good, say eighty years?” Anthony waved his hand and
talked vividly and in high spirits as though it had happened.
She was at a loss whether to cry or laugh.
This man was extremely adorable, and he would cause her heart to flutter.
Despite the tension between them, he could occasionally allow her to feel
the warmth and sunshine in him. She liked to be around him.
The two of them walked in the snow for a moment. Eleven wanted to ask him
about his background but decided against it. Since he did not ask her
about his background, she chose not to ask anything. When they had to
speak, they would speak to each other.
As Eleven unintentionally saw the small black hut, she was slightly taken
aback and froze in her steps. The weather was good today, and the
snowstorm in the afternoon was much smaller. As a larger snowstorm would
arrive much later in the evening, visibility was much better and she
could see the little black hut in the distance.
Anthony saw her sullen face and felt a chill run across his heart that he
quietly endured. Eleven, who was watching the little black hut, felt
waves of emotions come across her that would not quell. When she saw that
little black hut, she was reminded of Mo Ye.
She did not want to recall Mo Ye. Ever since she left that little black
hut, she relegated that thought to the deepest part of her heart and
stopped thinking, pursuing it to the point of ignoring it.
With Anthony by her side, she for some reason or other did not recall Mo
Ye. When Anthony and she were ice-skating earlier, she agreed to be
Anthony’s friend and did not even think about Mo Ye.
Eleven felt terrible. Did that mean that she had let go of the past and
stopped loving Mo Ye? Back then, she remembered everything clearly and
felt extremely despondent. As everything was as fresh as though it
happened yesterday, how could she simply forget anything?
She did not understand. While her rational side reminded her that she
hated Mo Ye, she looked at the little black hut and felt a sharp pain in
her heart. She did not seem to hate him, and had she reconciled with it?
She just did not know why she felt this way. Was Anthony the reason?
“What happened?” Anthony asked her worriedly as he wrapped his hands
around her body so that she would not catch the cold wind.
Eleven smiled. “I suddenly recalled this person.”
“Do you really hate him?” Anthony asked a little shakily with an
uneasy gaze. “You didn’t look quite okay earlier.”
Eleven quietly smiled and then changed the topic. “I’m feeling a
little cold. Shall we go back?”
Anthony immediately nodded and covered her as they walked back. He could
not help but take a look at the little black hut in trepidation.
“Little Seven, do you like me?” Anthony suddenly stopped and pulled
her into his embrace. He had persistence in his voice and Eleven was
taken aback as she did not know how to answer him.
She could not bring herself to say ‘like’.
“Forget it. Don’t say anything until I’m prepared to hear it,”
Anthony suddenly interrupted Eleven’s words and left Eleven slightly
aghast. While she could not quite guess Anthony’s mood, she wanted to
tell him that she somewhat like him. Why did he interrupt her? He seemed
to be certain that she would tell him that she was not interested in him.
Why was he so persistent about being her boyfriend?
The atmosphere between them on the way home was still extremely good as
the incident earlier had nary an effect on them. Eleven took her ice
skates home because she wanted to skate whenever she could since it felt
Once they reached home, Anthony prepared a cup of warm tea for her to
warm her hands. As it was still too early for dinner, Anthony returned to
his room whilst Eleven picked up Mrs. Kurt’s call. Mrs. Kurt said she
would be back in another two days.
Eleven nodded and chatted with Mrs. Kurt. She talked about anecdotes from
her wedding and called two days ago and mentioned she will be back in
another two days to get busy with a wedding. She said she was visiting
friends and would travel a little before coming home.
“Is everything fine at home?”
Eleven nodded. “All is good, don’t worry.”
As she hung up the phone, Anthony came out. “Mrs. Kurt said she will be
back the day after tomorrow,” Eleven said.
“She said so two days ago,” Anthony smiled. “Are you hungry? Do you
want to have a bite?”
“I’m not hungry,” Eleven smiled as she lay down on the sofa and
read a magazine. Anthony scooted over curiously and asked,” What are
“I’ll read anything, maybe the financial magazines,” Eleven said as
Anthony helped her up and sat on the couch. He then embraced her. As a
somewhat famous person, he finally got his wish of hugging her after
yearning for it after several days.
Eleven was not used to being this physically intimate with another
person, but… she indulged Anthony given how pleased he looked. Anthony
was extremely easily pleased.
He had better not get greedy and step into her room. If he did, she would
The heater was nowhere as warm as Anthony’s chest, and she felt
extremely comfortable snuggled in his embrace. Anthony enjoyed this
atmosphere as much and laid back as he talked to her.
Once Eleven finished reading the financial news, she casually turned on
the television and saw the news. Three Italian Members of Parliament
(MPs) died of unnatural causes, of which were not specified. The report
claimed that Left-aligned parties clashed with the Partito del Potere
during election vote-canvassing and both parties had sent their own
hitmen against the other party.
The official narrative however differed and it was ambiguous on the
identity of the killer despite indignantly claiming justice for those
killed. That, the art of theatrics, was how the government was playing
Anthony squinted dangerously.
Little Jue, what the f*** are you doing?
Mo Ye returned to his room and changed the battery in his cell phone
before turning it on. He then approached the bathroom.
Just as he turned on his phone, his phone displayed tens of missed calls
that were almost from the same person. Mo Jue’s missed call was one of
the few, and the same person left the voice messages in his email. Mo Ye
frowned and called back.
“Big Boss, you are finally alive. Thank goodness, I was panicking like
heck and miss…”
“Cut the crap. What happened?” Mo Ye flatly asked as he had a bad
“Big Boss, Miss Meng came over and is staying in a nearby restaurant.
She seems to be finding ways to get people to clear the mountain pass. I
must say, B, whatever the heck is wrong with you to turn off your cell
phone for days? If I were unable to contact you in the event of an
emergency, Second Boss will murder me” he replied in a flurry.
“How the f*** did she know I’m here?” Mo Ye looked down. That Meng
Lianying sure had the gall to look for him. Since he did not have time to
pick on her, she ought to run as far as she could.
“How the hell do I know? If I have to point a finger to somebody,
it’s the Second Boss who said it, not me.” Birmingham immediately
sold out Mo Jue while Mo Ye harrumphed and ignored Birmingham’s tirade.
Mo Jue would never reveal his traces.
Figuring out how she learned of his traces was to no avail, and Mo Ye
pondered for a moment. “Delay her.”
“Big Boss, I’m afraid we have some difficulties here.” Birmingham
sounded a little more unconfident. Mo Ye had a bad omen and barked,
“Miss Meng’s henchmen have gotten down to clearing the mountain path
since the morning. Big Boss…” Birmingham knew that Mo Ye had flown
into a rage and deliberately dragged the term Big Boss whilst sounding
like he was on the verge of tears and throwing a tantrum.
Somebody else on the receiving end of this man’s voice would have felt
chills running down his back. To Mo Ye, it was business as usual.
“Birmingham, you’re a spineless person. Why didn’t you stop her?”
Mo Ye flew into a rage but did not roar as he was afraid Eleven would
hear him. If Mo Ye did fly into a rage, Birmingham’s eardrums would be
the first to go.
“Big Boss…” Birmingham wailed and pounded his head as she shouted
shrilly, “Big Boss, you need to know that we are on Russian territory.
It isn’t our territory… People have parents, spouses, and children to
take care of, and they don’t want to die. Wow, Big Boss, you must trust
my loyalty and not dock my pay. Second boss has finally agreed to
increase my pay, and all that inflation and stagnant wages are making
things difficult. Please empathize with us oh Big Boss…”
“You’re really a…” Mo Ye was at a loss to cry or laugh.
Birmingham, however, spoke extremely quickly, and he was thankfully used
to Birmingham’s style of speaking. If Birmingham dared to speak to Mo
Jue in the same manner, Mo Jue would have hung up on him and not
entertained his dribble.
“When will they be able to clear the path?”
“About two hours.” Birmingham sounded much more serious when it came
to proper business.
“Did she rejoin the Russian Operative Organization?”
“We’ve yet to confirm specifics. We only learned that she talked to a
man along the beach for a long time and then came here. Chances are said
man revealed your traces,” Birmingham reported. “Miss Meng initially
wanted professionals to clear the mountain path, and you know how I’ve
made arrangements so that no workers in the area would end up under her
beck and call. She hence had another group of men over, and they –
based on the situation – should be trained agents. Even if she did not
rejoin the Operative Organization, she must have made some deal.”
“I know,” Mo Ye had a malicious and insidious look as his veins
throbbed while he gripped his cell phone.
Birmingham knew that Big Boss Mo was in a rage and did not act
excessively presumptuously. He was not too certain about what transpired
between Meng Lianying and Big Boss Mo except Big Boss Mo instructing him
to closely monitor Meng Lianying’s traces before he disappeared. Big
Boss Mo guessed that Meng Lianying would locate where he was, and hence
instructed Birmingham to stop her. Birmingham, however, did not know what
happened between them since Meng Lianying was associated with Big Boss
Mo, and Big Boss Mo turning off his cell phone for days meant that he was
unable to ask Big Boss Mo what was going on. Given the situation at hand,
he had no choice but to quietly observe how the situation evolved.
He really ought not to be blamed.
While he sounded as though he was slightly joking, he was however as
serious too. Since Meng Lianying had mobilized her forces, he had to
evacuate and not needlessly sacrifice himself. Since they were on
somebody’s turf, they knew that their strength (relative to their
opponents’) and ought not to go against them toe-to-toe.
“Big Boss, what do we do now?” Birmingham spoke after guessing that
Big Boss had enough time to ponder.
Mo Ye grunted. He could not allow Meng Lianying to go up the mountain as
she would meet Eleven. Eleven would learn his actual identity. While he
was not afraid of Eleven knowing his actual identity, he actually missed
these days very much. Secondly, he ought to confess his actual identity
to Eleven then have Meng Lianying encounter her. If that happened,
Eleven’s thoughts would run wild and imagine some conspiracy that he
could not quite refute.
He took much effort to draw close to her again and would definitely not
allow what happened five years ago to repeat itself. Meng Lianying would
definitely not have her way this time. Big Boss Mo’s anger flared up
and took much effort to suppress the anger in his heart.
“I’ll meet her at the foot of the mountain.”
“By yourself? Big Boss, do not blame me for not reminding you that you
are no match against everybody who’s on her side. Shall I have people
lay in ambush in the area lest things become hot?”
“That won’t be necessary.” Mo Ye turned down the offer.
“I know that Big Boss is capable as heck and moves mountains without
the need for protection. While you may be fearless about dying, I am
bloody afraid of dying out here. If you bleed, Second Boss will outright
murder me. Big Boss, please take mercy on my loyalty and concern for
“Don’t be startled. Do not take any action until I’ve given the
code to go ahead.”
“Roger that. Big Boss is wise,” Birmingham flattered Birmingham in
Mo Ye ended the call and looked at his wristwatch. Since it was still
early, he should still have time to prepare dinner. Mo Ye knocked on
Eleven’s door and opened it to see her lying down whilst looking at
Mrs. Kurt’s photo albums. Mrs. Kurt had many photo albums, and the
elderly couple had been to many places and took many beautiful scenery
photos that they kept.
“How come you’re still awake?”
“I lied down and wasn’t tired.” Eleven smiled as Mo Ye took off his
shoes. Eleven stared at Mo Ye and said, “What are you doing?”
“Accompanying my girlfriend,” Mo Ye replied certainly and snuggled
into Eleven’s bed despite Eleven’s opposition and hugged her. He
enjoyed the ecstatic feeling of being in her warmth.
“Anthony, please do not go overboard or I’ll wallop you.”
“Am I overboard?” Mo Ye looked at her innocently. “I was afraid
that you are bored. Won’t it be nice if two people are looking at them
Eleven gritted her teeth while Mo Ye kissed her cheek. He hugged her
whilst she flipped the photo album and leaned against his warm chest.
Their limbs tangled together in as compromising a pose as it could get
since she was sitting on his legs. Eleven squirmed about in slight
embarrassment whilst Mo Ye quickly steadied her body and whispered into
her ear, “Little Seven, please do not anyhow move when a man hugs you
like this. If you do, he will assume that you are hinting him to take it
Eleven felt her face warm up and she felt that her brains were about to
burn up. Her ears were utterly red as she felt a seeming threat loom in
his lower half. Eleven’s neck was red and she did not dare to anyhow
move and simply rest contently in his embrace.
Mo Ye gently smiled. He saw her reddened ears from the side. Her pink
neck seemed somewhat cute and he could not help suck at and gently tingle
her earlobes. Eleven felt her body become jelly and drop the thick photo
album on the blanket. She shuddered and felt her strength utterly sapped
by an insane feeling that turned her into a mush that he wantonly
caressed. She was shuddering to the point she was no longer herself…
“Er… Anthony…” She could not help but gently moan and harshly cut
herself off while she tried to push him away from her to no avail. She
was even more terrified when she realized that she sounded so… alluring.
As his member stiffened, Eleven clearly felt his stiffness push between
her legs and panicked. She wanted to spread her legs to run, or take
things into her hands and mercilessly slash away at it.
When it came to matters of lust, she was nothing short of new and could
not handle it.
Mo Ye wrapped his hands around her waist and forcefully drew her into his
embrace. He, in the spur of the moment, almost called out her real name.
“Anthony, don’t…” Eleven resisted him but she felt her head being
turned around and their lips locked. He kissed her so intensely that he
could not allow her to resist while his hands naughtily roamed in her
As his ice-cold hands came into contact with Eleven’s warm skin, she
felt waves of paralysis come over her as she tried squirming to avoid him
to no avail. She ended up squirming into his embrace while he greedily
lapped at her sweetness. As his hands kneaded her tender bosoms outside
of her bra, he could not resist the temptation and undone her bra. He
directly fondled and caressed her smooth mounds.
He was not an intensely passionate person and, because of his identity,
rarely had women around him as he could not trust anybody, let alone bed
them. Mo Ye and Mo Jue received similar levels of education since young
and were innocent people with few desires. He, however, was not as
ridiculous as Mo Jue and had a woman or two in his youth. He later
developed feelings for Eleven and could not resist trying to hug her,
kiss her, and take her for himself in that little black hut. It was then
that he learned of his carnal desires. After he mistook Meng Lianling for
Eleven, Meng Lianling did not give him the same feeling that Eleven did.
The immense poison in Meng Lianling would have harmed him if it combined
with his body, and one wonders who would have poisoned Meng Lianling with
such a vicious poison. Meng Lianling knew, and she did honestly tell him.
He did not quite feel anything back then and did not place any particular
significance on the incident. If he didn’t have it, so be it. It
wasn’t until several years later that he relieved himself if he could
not resist his urges.
Since Meng Lianying could not fulfill Mo Ye’s sexual needs, he – out
of his affection for her – was not sexually unfaithful.
Did he really love Meng Lianying? He actually didn’t. The simplest
proof of that was his lack of sexual desire towards her. He hoped to cure
her so that she would be ok and live well.
He had always told himself that he loved her the most. How much more
wrong could he be?
He, however, felt differently about Eleven. Whether five years ago or
now, he was always attracted to her. Whenever he hugged her, his thoughts
would wander and think of kissing her, hugging her, and wanting her for
himself. His desire to take her was so intense and furious that he had to
suppress them with his dear life.
Before he knew of her, he had such feelings when he was in City A. It was
exactly this reason that he was afraid of betraying Meng Lianling and his
promise towards her.
He had struggled to whether he ought to use her to save Meng Lianying,
but eventually opted to. He only wanted to save Meng Lianying and fulfill
his promise to her back then. As she saved him, he owed his life to her.
Even if he did not fall in love with the person who saved him back then,
he would be as ruthless when she encountered a tough spot so as for her
to fully recover. They had been through one tribulation too many, and any
additional trials were trivial.
Little did he expect to get the person wrong.
Once he knew the truth, all of Eleven’s words were seared into his
heart. To meet her using the pseudonym of “Anthony” required him to
immensely keep himself in check just so he could talk to her normally.
Such evasion and promises gave her an indelible nightmare.
“Anthony, stop,” Eleven’s voice interrupted his memories. Mo Ye
looked at her deeply with a gaze that had a few hints of persistence and
hurt that tore at her heart.
“Little Seven, do you really dislike me touching you?”
“I’m not used to it,” Eleven was extremely embarrassed as he had
not removed his hands from her bosom when he asked. It felt so…
embarrassing that she felt her face become warmer.
“Since that’s the case, start getting used to it from today,” Mo Ye
quietly said as he kissed Eleven’s ear lobes. Eleven felt herself
shudder, and he smiled. This innocent lass responded in a clear manner,
and that was her erogenous spot that left her powerless to resist.
If she really wanted to have her for himself… He thought about it every
night. When he saw her smile, he was especially excited. Now that she
officially belonged to him, he would not give up his right to have his
way with her. As Eleven’s coat was loose, she suddenly recalled her
body when he tugged at her coat. Eleven suddenly gained the strength and
wore her coat on.
“Anthony, stop horsing around,” her face was slightly less warm. She
did not want him to see her messed up body, let alone the many needle
punctures in her arm…
She did not want anybody to see them.
“What’s happened?” While she was clearly lost in the throngs of her
passion, why did she suddenly become this glum? What did he do wrong?
He did want to have her, but he also knew that it was not the right time
as he ought to check in on her then go down the mountain to meet Meng
Lianying. He did not expect his thoughts to roam once he hugged her and
could not stop.
“Nothing,” Eleven smiled. “You did go overboard too. That’s some
negative points for thinking of those things first when you are my
Mo Ye laughed. “Negative points to you if I do not think about these.”
Eleven’s neck, which became cold, became warm again.
“Fine, I’ll stop teasing you. I’m going out to catch a breather.
You’ll be okay alone?”
Eleven shook her head and Mo Ye kissed her. “Little Seven, wait for me
