100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-723
Mo Jue was in a bad mood the whole day. As Chu Li, Jason, and the others
were telling Mo Shitian about Su Ruyu’s life in those years, they
smartly omitted Su Ruyu’s romantic relationship with Wolf. They only
told Mo Shitian how stern Old Witch was, how she lived her days, and any
other anecdotes. Everybody could actually feel how Mo Shitian felt toward
He was wholeheartedly dedicated to her.
The Mo brothers quietly sat by the side and listened in. Mo Ye was
typically expressionless, and Mo Jue was expressionless as usual as well.
It seemed as though the Mo brothers were much less presumptuous before
their father. They were very silent for a moment as they found it hard to
accept the change in these relationships.
In the evening, Eleven brought dinner to Su Ruyu, who was sitting in the
garden of her courtyard. She, having neither appetite nor interest in
talking, had Eleven back away. In her helplessness, Eleven could only
The Mo brothers had nary an appetite and returned to their rooms early.
Since Su Ruyu did not want anybody to disturb her, Eleven, in her
dutifulness, felt that Mo Shitian would certainly take his chances and
decided to simply sit on the moonstone railings outside Su Ruyu’s
Mo Ye was in his room, vexed. Since he could find nobody to talk to, he
went downstairs to look for Eleven.
“What brings you down here?” Eleven asked in bewilderment. She looked
toward Su Ruyu’s door and figured her master would not be able to hear
them from this distance. “You’re in a bad mood?”
Mo Ye sat down about a meter away from her and tapped the empty space
next to him. Eleven frowned at why he didn’t come over to sit down. Oh,
well, since he was not feeling good, she would go along with him. Just as
she was about to sit down next to Mo Ye, he suddenly wrapped his arms
around her waist and had her sit on his thighs, tightly hugging her
before burying his head in her fragrant hair without saying a word. He
seemed somewhat depressed and glum.
At a loss, Eleven could only hold his hands.
Stars littered the night sky, and the gentle moonlight poured onto
everything like a mysterious veil. The fragrance of the flora in the
Su’s mansion’s backyard was invigorating.
“Mo Ye, if you are feeling really stifled, you can talk to me,”
Eleven turned around and gently said. For once, her voice was not cold.
She gently stroked his head.
All that happened today greatly shook the brothers. Actually, the
brothers were also innocent victims whom Mo Shitian should dote on and
care for. After all, they were his and Su Ruyu’s children. Even if he
did not treat them as treasure, he should not have left them to their own
devices and created trauma in their hearts. Any child would want their
parents’ care and love, her included. As she was an orphan, she only
had one very small wish when she was younger, which was for her parents
to appear before her someday. She did not want them to be very rich or
very capable; all that she wanted was a word of consolation when she was
The Mo brothers probably felt the same.
“I don’t want to talk about anything,” Mo Ye said in a stifling
manner. Eleven had never seen Mo Ye like such. In her opinion, he was
often self-confident, calm, and tended to make intricate plans. There was
nothing that could make him seem so troubled and dejected.
Eleven looked down and kissed his cheeks. “It’s okay.”
He had to personally make sense of all these things. After all, she had
never experienced them personally and did not know how to describe the
feuds and grudges of their seniors. In her opinion, she would naturally
take Su Ruyu’s side in the incident as her heart was certainly with Su
Ruyu. Even though she had some dealings with Su Ruhua, they were nowhere
near a tenth of her dealings with Su Ruyu.
She would not allow anybody to harm Su Ruyu, and she would dislike
anybody who had hurt Su Ruyu. But this incident left her troubled. She
did not know how to resolve the emotional knot between them.
“If you were in our shoes, what would you do?” Mo Ye asked Eleven.
“Me? I don’t know. I do not have parents, and I haven’t experienced
such feelings to know what to do,” Eleven honestly replied.
Mo Ye bitterly laughed. “Well, Dad actually does not love us nor dote
on us. If we did not grow up by his side as ignorant children, I’m
afraid that we would really hate him. He treated us extremely cruelly
when we were young. Yes, we weren’t his beloved’s children, but he
should not have treated us that way.”
Eleven heard him and broke into a slight smile. “What are you laughing
about?” Mo Ye raised his eyebrows.
“That… What if, and I mean hypothetically, you have a child with some
other woman and cause your own child and me to die? Would you treat that
child well? When you see that child, would you be reminded of our child?
Wouldn’t you be reminded of me? It won’t be hard to guess that we
would be a happy family of three if it weren’t for that child, no?
There wouldn’t be hatred in your hearts then, right?” Eleven smiled,
knowing that she had hit the crux of the question. All many problems
needed would have been a perspective shift to give a very different
If he were in the situation, it was afraid that he…
Mo Ye fell silent and turned around to look at the door. While his
biological mother was behind the door, he still felt that Su Ruhua was
his actual mother because she was closer to him, whereas Su Ruyu felt
like an outsider to him.
“Mo Ye, can I be honest? I feel that my master was really wronged and
really pitiful all these years. If all these did not happen, your family
of four would definitely have had a very happy life. Twenty-seven years
have passed, and it’s a… good thing… that my master has lost her
memory. If she didn’t, how would she live her days out? My heart aches
when I think about it,” Eleven gently said. “Do not blame her. You
have no basis nor right to blame her. Nobody, and I mean nobody, has the
right to blame her.”
“I know!” Mo Ye solemnly replied, knowing for certain but could not
accept it. “I am past the age where I need parental love. It doesn’t
“You can’t say that! My master lost her children, and then her
memories. To her, these twenty years between you and her simply did not
exist. She needs you all,” Eleven said. She did not know how to tell Mo
Ye. Just because he did not need motherly love did not imply that he did
not need a mother.
Mo Ye felt bitter in his heart and fell silent.
“I still feel that you guys actually love your father,” Eleven said.
“If not, how are you so…”
“It’s a matter of habit.” Mo Ye knew what she was driving at and
plainly said, “When we were young, he did not hit us or scold us. His
gaze, however, left us feeling how… terrifying… this world is…”
