Images in the central information center flashed. Ye Wei scrutinized the
information that arrived from around the world. Apart from Colombia and
Mexico, the Middle East was extremely deeply embroiled in conflict.
Conflicts were almost synonymous with these few locations.
As narcotics, underworld activity, and arms dealers were most prolific in
these regions, not to mention how the most powerful force in the
underworld made its presence in them, anybody who became involved in the
underworld would never be able to avoid these regions when discussing
Once one took these three locations out of the equation, the global
underworld would have lost two-thirds of its influence.
Since the Dragon Gate’s sphere of influence was neither in the Middle
East, Colombia, or Mexico, the recent conflicts had little to do with
them as compared to the terrorist organization and the Mafia whose power
bases were in Eastern Europe and Africa.
Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya were still in Riyadh. Cheng Anya’s
condition was beginning to become unstable with a few abdomen pains that
almost resulted in miscarriages due to the bid to protect the child.
Also, the viral research on Eleven had yet to be completed, so Bai Ye
could not leave Riyadh.
In this situation, Third Young Master Ye would never allow Bai Ye to
leave Riyadh. While Su Man was a virologist, Bai Ye still reigned supreme
when it came to medical skills. As Cheng Anya’s condition deteriorated,
Third Young Master Ye had no heart for the daily matters of the Dragon
Gate and hence had Fourth Young Master Tang and First Young Master Lin
see to them. Third Young Master Ye instead remained in Riyadh and
accompanied Cheng Anya in the event the unthinkable happened.
Since Fourth Young Master Tang and First Young Master Lin were unfamiliar
with Chu Li, Jason and company, they did not want to involve themselves
in the conflict between the Mafia and the terrorist organization without
Ye Chen as the middle man. Fourth Young Master Tang and First Young
Master Lin could only observe the conflict whilst assisting the terrorist
organization to the best of their ability in North America.
Besides, given how prideful Chu Li, Jason and company were, they would
never rely on another person’s strength unless they were in extremely
dire straits. Since they were more than able to go toe-to-toe against the
Mafia, they were definitely not on the losing end.
With Bai Ye absent, Chu Li, Black J, and Jason held the fort and Ning
Ning backed into the shadows to plot their next moves. Both parties
engaged up-close several times with a mix of victories and losses that
were not substantial.
Once Ye Wei took over command from Mo Jue, she directly went for the
terrorist organization’s power base in North America and caught them
off guard. She took out much of their power base within three days, and
Black J was provoked to the point he considered leveling Sicily.
Despite their many plans, little did they expect Ye Wei’s familiarity
with the terrorist organization to become her most effective weapon that
caught them off guard. While she could not remember much, her familiarity
with them still remained.
Ye Wei, relying on her past familiarity, helped Mo Jue with his rule.
Just as Ye Wei was reading the information, Cloud saw somebody from the
terrorist organization contacting the Mafia and asked for Ye Wei’s two
cents’. “Who is the other person?” Ye Wei frowned and asked.
“Who’s Ye Ningyuan?” Ye Wei was a little baffled. While she had
read much about the terrorist organization, she had never heard of this
‘He’s your nephew,’ Cloud thought.
“Ye Ningyuan is the chief of information security in the terrorist
organization and one of its core members. He is also Third Young Master
Ye’s son,” Cloud honestly replied. Ye Wei took a while to respond.
Third Young Master Ye’s son? A part of the core team managing the
Third Young Master Ye was only twenty-seven, and he had a son who was in
the same league as Chu Li? What kind of a joke was the world cracking?
“How old is he?”
Ye Wei paused and said, “Patch his feed over.”
Cloud was a little worried that Ye Ningyuan would tell Ye Wei things that
would compromise Mo Jue and hesitated. Since Mo Jue was in a coma at the
wrong time, what should she do?
“Cloud, what’s with that lost look?”
“Oh, okay.” Cloud had no choice but to patch the feed. A tender and
adorable face with its white skin and delicate features appeared on the
huge screen. The person on the screen largely resembled Ye Chen and was,
in essence, a miniaturized Ye Chen who had much more delicate and
beautiful features. His beautiful eyes especially stood out.
He, with a gentle smile, politely greeted her. “Hi, auntie, it’s been
a while. How are you?”
“Hi, my dear nephew. It’s a shame that auntie can’t remember who
you are.” Ye Wei gorgeously laughed. While somebody had informed her of
how she was related to Ye Chen in Colombia, she was doubtful despite
believing it. It was just…
She did not know why she sided with Mo Jue a little more despite how
facts could not be denied.
“If you can’t remember me, it’s okay. You will recall it
someday.” Ning Ning smiled and blinked cutely. His tender lips broke
into a gentle smile that somewhat mocked her. Ye Wei, despite how subtle
Ning Ning’s mockery was, clearly felt it.
“Hey, chap, what’s with your hello?” She smiled as she coldly asked.
Ning Ning became serious and his tender face instantly became much more
solemn to the point it felt a little terrifying. It was hence little
wonder that he was a core member of the terrorist organization despite
his age. Ye Wei secretly thought. For a seven-year-old to already be this
imposing could only mean he would become even meaner with time.
“Auntie, pull back!” Ning Ning solemnly ordered. “Even if you
don’t remember us, please do not point the wrong end of the gun at us.
I do not want you to regret all these someday,” Ning Ning flatly said.
“That’s my own problem.” Ye Wei raised her eyebrows and laughed.
She knew her own limits, and it was precisely because she knew that she
could have been part of the terrorist organization that she instructed
that lives not be taken. Her instructions had left people backing away.
She did know that she would regret someday and hence did not go to
“That said, have you really made up your mind to help Mo Jue?”
“You can say so.” Ye Wei crossed her legs in an easy-going fashion
while looking like she was mocking him. “Hey, little boy, can I say
that you are representing your entire organization when you looked for me
“Naturally! Yourself?” The irony in this statement became even more
Nobody was going to budge!
Ye Wei coldly laughed, and Cloud said, “Whatever Miss Ye says is second
This was Mo Jue’s order, and nobody was to defy them.
“Hmmph!” Ning Ning coldly harrumphed without a smile on his face. He,
in absolute irony, never dreamed of the very day that he would be
negotiating with his auntie, and it seemed…
“Dear little Ye Ningyuan, why don’t you pull your men back instead of
“You started it all, so what’s with that counterclaim?”
“Dear little friend, is your IQ underdeveloped or what? The Mafia has
been taking quite some heat since October, and does it make sense that
you corner us and not allow us to retaliate?” Ye Wei smiled and asked
in return with slight displeasure. “Do you think that I have it easy
after I’ve taken care of Mo Jue? Do you think that I, with the command
of people here, am some simpleton? If I’ve time, I’d rather kill a
few more people than play strategy with your ilk. Am I such a dull
person? If it weren’t for your keeping the heat up on us, the situation
would not have spiraled out of control, and you all would not be cracking
your heads on how to stabilize it. Where the f*** have you been?”
When it came to how scathing one could get, Ye Wei was no slouch.
Ning Ning broke into a cold smile. “Auntie, you deserve it.”
“Oh! Did the Mafia owe you all something?” Ye Wei asked in return.
“I must say that you all have been domineering beyond reproach to the
point that you will go about clipping the wings of your competitors
despite being entrenched? What kind of nonsense is this? Is it even
right? While you all should not go to arms for world peace, you all are
still the root cause of it. Stop blaming people for it.”
Ning Ning quietly listened on as Ye Wei ranted. If Ye Wei had not lost
her memory, she would not have said such things and even approved of them
attacking the terrorist organization.
They were just domineering and would simply never allow the Mafia to
become stronger. No sane person would allow a formidable opponent to
become even stronger.
However, if one took the perspective of the Mafia, it was indeed a wholly
“Auntie, if you weren’t calling the shots today, would I even talk to
you?” Mixed emotions flashed through Ning Ning’s calm eyes. Ning
Ning, at the end of it all, was doing it all for his auntie. He was not
afraid of the Mafia as they had the ability to go toe-to-toe, or perhaps
even have a slight advantage, against the Mafia. With Ye Wei, the
godfather of the Mafia, every instruction she gave was for the Mafia that
would undoubtedly threaten the core interests of the terrorist
organization. While material losses were trivial, losses of life were
not. Given Ye Wei’s vicious and decisive streak, it was not impossible
for her to shed blood. If she did eventually gain her memory, how could
she handle it?
She, ultimately, would hurt those closest to her…
While she had lost her memory, they had not. While she could risk it all,
they could not. She, after all, was like family to them.
‘Auntie, when will you be able to recall everything?’
“Auntie, I’ll promise any reasonable condition that you offer,”
Ning Ning said.
Ye Wei frowned and silently pondered as she quietly looked at the young
kid’s solemn face. Her heart was tumultuous. Why did she feel so
Ning Ning and Cloud both looked at her in concern. Ye Wei flung her head
and said, “You all won’t be able to fulfill any condition that I will
even offer. Mo Ye…”
She paused and did not continue.
Ning Ning instantly understood what happened. Mo Ye was the cause of Mo
Jue going berserk, and the root cause of it all was how they were unable
to bring Mo Ye back from the dead.
“Is Mo Ye really dead?”
“Didn’t you all receive the news?” Ye Wei asked in return.
“I never believed it!”
“Whatever works for you,” Ye Wei plainly said. She did not directly
answer the question. “I want this fiasco to end too. All you have to do
is to agree to stop putting any heat on us and restore peace. That also
means that you will not deliberately pick on the Mafia. Once these are
met, I’ll tell Mo Jue to stop exacting revenge on you.”
“Hmmph! How greedy!” Ning Ning clenched his fists and showed his
“If you’re not agreeing, so be it! Let’s keep this up until either
of us gives way. Not too bad an idea too, hm?”
“I agree!” Ning Ning replied.
He could only agree for now so that Ye Wei would keep herself out of it.
If Ye Wei did not keep herself out of it, somebody would have to
eventually regret it, and he did not want her, and his own, to have
regrets. As for Ye Wei and Mo Jue…
‘Auntie, that is your choice. You will have to bear the consequences of
what eventually unfolds.’
“Do you really agree?”
“All for you!” Ning Ning plainly replied. “We will not be that
Ye Wei shuddered and was at a loss for words.
“Auntie, do you really like Mo Jue that much? You’ve never rebutted
me, and that shows that you’ve acknowledged who you are. Why are you
still doing this? Do you really like him that much?” Ning Ning calmly
“I guess so!” Ye Wei plainly replied. She also had no idea why she
Ning Ning looked at her calm face that did not have its usual smile. She,
in her deep thought, seemed weak and lonely. It was as though all those
anger in her had vaporized and she had nothing else to be angry about.
While that was something she wished for, that was all they could do so
that she would not be harmed in the meantime.
Since she liked Mo Jue that much, they would have to make do for now.
“I know. Consider it my promise to you, and please convince Mo Jue to
stop picking a fight. There will be no repeat.” If it weren’t for Ye
Wei, the Mafia would have been able to get out unscathed.
It was this moment of tenderheartedness that gave the Mafia a chance to
reorganize and burn like wildfire in little time. That would be a story
for another time.
Ning Ning took another look at Ye Wei and turned off the display.
‘Auntie, you actually know who you are, but you do not want to recall
anyone or anything from the before lest you get entangled in them. Is
that why you are afraid that you will fall out with him once you regain
your memory and lose all this time you’ve spent with him irrecoverably?
Is that it?’
‘But, have you ever thought about how terrible we felt when you
Ye Wei sat on the chair in a daze and looked down, seemingly deep in
thought. While Cloud was extremely happy at how Ye Wei had resolved the
impasse and congratulated her, Ye Wei was in no mood to hear them.
Was she that capable?
No, it was not the case. It was because…
Ye Wei coldly laughed. Forget it. She did not want to think about it.
Since this matter was a done deal, she ought to cheer up a little and
stop being this solemn.
She, in a trance, heard Ning Ning’s words. ‘Auntie, do you really
like Mo Jue this much?’
Yes, she just liked him that much. What could she do about it?
That was her choice, and she would not bear a grudge against anybody
however good or bad the outcome was. This was her life, her choice.
