100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-713
Twenty-eight years ago, Mo Shitian first knew Su Ruhua. As it was a time
of perpetual troubles for the Mafia, the young Mo Shitian assassinated
his adoptive father and took control of the Mafia by force. In the few
years that followed, he ran the Mafia with an iron-fist but had to fight
against the existing powers within the Mafia thanks to problems the
previous godfather of the Mafia left behind while he cultivated a new
At the age of fourteen, he took control of the Mafia. In his few years in
power, he crossed several members of the underworld. Although the Mafia
then was the top dog of the underworld, Mo Shitian encountered several
assassinations within and out of the Mafia.
When he was eighteen, four full years after he took over the Mafia, Mo
Shitian unintentionally encountered Su Ruhua when somebody attempted to
assassinate him in a pub. With Su Ruhua’s help, he escaped the scene.
They hence became good friends and often remained in contact.
Back then, Su Ruhua was extremely good-looking; her purple eyes were so
clear, beautiful, and elegant to the point the royalty in Riyadh fell
head over heels for her. As a young girl, Mo Shitian was the first person
whom she took a liking to.
That was the first time Su Ruhua took a liking to somebody.
However, Mo Shitian was the godfather of the Mafia whose traces were
elusive. Hence, he often couldn’t be contacted. That, along with how it
was unfitting for her to travel to the Mafia’s headquarters to look for
him, made her contact with him intermittent.
As a carefree person, Su Ruhua had no qualms with and was not bashful
when it came to her feelings for Mo Shitian. Whoever confessed their
feelings first did not matter to her, and all she wanted back then was to
grow old with Mo Shitian. Thus, Su Ruhua confessed to Mo Shitian.
The young Mo Shitian, who was striving to push the Mafia toward the
zenith of excellence, was not in the mood for feelings and rejected Su
Ruhua. Given the countless assassination attempts on him, the situation
was tenuous and he had no intention of embroiling Su Ruhua in the world
of darkness he was in.
After she was rejected following her confession, Su Ruhua returned to
Riyadh glum and unhappy for a moment. As Su Man was poisoned back then,
his growth was stunted since he was a child. Su Ruyu remained at home and
labored hard for Su Man’s poisoning, hoping that Su Man could be cured
as soon as possible.
Back then, Su Ruyu was a legend in the underworld, a highly capable
fighter whose traces were never a given and extremely secretive. She and
Fu Jin were under the same master, and both of them made their name at
the same time. However, when it came to fame and ability, Su Ruyu was
slightly more capable than him.
Following Su Man’s poisoning, Su Ruyu remained in a semi-secluded state
in Riyadh to treat Su Man, whereas Fu Jin struck out on his own. Su Ruhua
was gloomy then, and she did not tell Su Ruyu a thing after Su Ruyu
asked. Su Ruyu did not mind and focused on treating Su Man.
Following Su Ruhua’s gloomy streak, she resumed her normal self and
became a cheerful young woman who helped Su Ruyu treat Su Man whilst
representing the Su family at upper society banquets in Riyadh. She was
gorgeous and stunning.
Su Ruyu was even more at ease.
Later on, Su Ruyu made some progress in her research. Following countless
experiments, she managed to find a cure for Su Man that was short of
three herbs. Since Su Ruhua was no expert in the field, Su Ruyu was not
at peace with Su Ruhua looking for them, so she had Su Ruhua take care of
Su Man whereas she headed out to locate the herbs.
These three herbs were considered extinct. Su Ruyu found one species in a
middle-eastern rainforest, and another in the Persian Gulf. Despite
traversing the entire Middle East, she did not locate the third herb.
Su Ruyu hence had people deliver the two herbs back to the Su’s
mansion. She then went around the world, searching for the final herb. By
the time she encountered Mo Shitian, the poison in Su Man had been
stabilized thanks to her medication. All that was left was that one herb
for the antidote. Su Ruyu took some high-value missions for the thrill of
it while searching for the herbs.
Su Ruyu, in coincidence, sparred with Mo Shitian face-to-face when they
were fighting over a Persian treasure in the frozen kingdom of Norway.
Back then, Su Ruyu and Mo Shitian both wore masks and they did not know
each other. When they duked it out in the frozen kingdom, the ice castle
collapsed and both of them were almost buried in the ice. Both of them
did not know who the other was, much less how they would spend the rest
of their lives tangling with each other.
The treasure was buried under the ice when they fought, no longer
recoverable. The two of them shot each other a few glances before
leaving. As this was the first time Mo Shitian came across a considerable
competition, he took an interest in her but did not search for her
because too many things happened back then. Little did he expect Su Ruyu
to walk up to his front door.
Of all places, she stole from his turf: the headquarters of the Mafia.
That could be considered her first time seeing him, and neither of them
wore masks as they fought for their dear life in the hidden rooms in the
headquarters of the Mafia. It was during this fight did they learn that
they had encountered each other in Finland before fighting each other
Although Su Ruyu had her hand on the items, Mo Shitian did not go home
empty-handed—he learned her name.
She was quite an honest person. Not the slightest afraid of people coming
after her, she gave him her real name. That, along with how she so
resembled Su Ruhua, allowed him to easily guess that she was Su Ruhua’s
Su Ruhua once told him she had a twin sister, and he had heard of her
name in the line of work that she took note of. While Su Ruyu made it big
in the underworld, one surname less would save the Su family immense
Mo Shitian took a liking to Su Ruhua at first sight but grew to dislike
her. Once he had straightened out the chaos within the Mafia and
stability ensued for a moment, he went looking for Su Ruyu.
As Su Ruyu was looking for herbs, her traces were not fixed. However, Mo
Shitian was crazy capable and managed to easily locate her. Back then,
they were teenagers who did not quite get along well with each other.
One had a strong and weird temper, whereas the other was overbearing and
cold. Although they often fought it out with each other, they also fought
side by side and spent a very thrilling time together. Thus, Mo Shitian
started to occupy a position in Su Ruyu’s heart.
There were several times she was on the verge of death due to dangerous
circumstances, but he did not let go of her. Beneath that domineering and
determined facade of his was a heart that so clearly loved her.
Su Ruyu slowly and certainly fell in love with Mo Shitian.
“Who’s pursuing who again?”
“Nonsense! Of course it’s me pursuing you! Have you ever seen me
pursue you?” Su Ruyu replied righteously and rolled her eyes at him. He
was the one pursuing her from the beginning to the end.
Sometime later, Fu Jin returned.
