100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-766
Hailan’s body grew very slowly. Although she was a year old, she was
not particularly different from a two-three-month-old, but she still
looked lively. Whenever Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya’s friends
saw Young Mistress Ye, they could not help but praise her for how lovely
she was. Based on her looks, she was indeed lively.
Ye Wei almost could not wait to hug Ye Hailan from Miss Cheng’s hands.
As she held that soft form in her embrace, she was really happy. The more
she looked at Little Hailan, the more she liked her.
Perhaps it was because she had lost a daughter that Ye Wei utterly doted
on Little Hailan. She could not wait to transfer all the love she had for
her daughter to her niece.
Before Little Hailan came into the world, she deliberately stole a piece
of thousand-year-old jade from the collections of the Riyadh palace and
wanted to make it into a jade pendant or a little jade bracelet for
Little Hailan. She felt that a jade bracelet was too much of a waste and
that she would not be used to a jade pendant, so she decided to simply
create a pendant in the shape of a lotus, along with an arm bracelet and
a leg bracelet when she heard of the miracle during Hailan’s birth
Little Hailan happily thanked her auntie and happily wore the jade
pendant. As Ye Wei saw how her niece loved it, she felt that stealing
that national treasure was too worth it. Anything was worth it as long as
her niece was happy.
Third Young Master Ye’s presence made the Su mansion much livelier, and
Ye Wei prepared a sumptuous dinner to receive them. Rong Yan was expected
to deliver in a few days and could not afford to exert herself. Since
Eleven was not in good shape, Ye Wei, in the spur of the moment, prepared
the dishes she liked. Rare as it was, the Su sisters helped her out.
The Su sisters gradually grew closer. It seemed as though the unhappy
incidents had disappeared and nobody brought them up. Once Eleven was a
tad better and they had had their weddings, Su Ruhua would travel the
Knowing that she was used to the life on the island, Su Ruyu did not stop
her. She could either return to the island or travel around the world
with Mo Shitian. Even if she were not on the island, there would still be
somebody else to train the children.
The evening was lively as there was a child, a special child, who was
adorable and able to speak despite her age. The Mo brothers, in a rare
show of their smiles, cajoled the child as they played with her.
Little Hailan was not afraid of strangers and was able to talk to
anybody. She, who inherited Anya and Third Young Master Ye’s sense of
humor, was able to cajole her seniors into a good laugh. Mo Jue, who
never quite liked children, started to feel that having a daughter was
not too bad.
Given how adorable this child was, he would definitely treasure her. If
it were a son… Heh, he did not quite like a son. Wouldn’t it be
perfect if his daughter looked like Ye Wei and was close to him?
When Cheng Anya heard it, she could not help but laugh nonstop.
Save her slightly slower growth, Little Hailan was mostly fine. Bai Ye
and Su Man hence did not worry about her. As long as she was carefully
brought up, she would be fine.
Eleven was afraid that she would startle the child, so she wore a mask
and wig to look a tad more normal. Apart from pointing out how her auntie
seemed to have lost weight, Little Hailan did not mention anything else.
Everybody felt that the child was really considerate and thus loved her
even more. The few guys really liked how the adorable Little Hailan
walked. Her stubby legs strode as though she were a toddler walking but
yet so steadily. They felt that it was very interesting.
Hailan, playing along with everybody, walked a few rounds before daintily
sitting down in Third Young Master Ye’s embrace and reaching out her
tender hands to greet them. Save Ye Wei who was overjoyed, everybody else
Third Young Master Ye, she is undoubtedly your daughter.
Third Young Master Ye was very satisfied.
Everybody had a very satisfying dinner, and the few men bellowed and went
upstairs for a round of mahjong after having their fill. Mo Ye, wanting
to take care of Eleven, did not want to join the crowd and would rather
remain in the room and rest with Eleven.
Rong Yan’s constitution was nothing short of bada**. She still remained
healthy and had nary a reaction during her pregnancy. In her high
spirits, she left people in disbelief about her constitution when they
saw her bulge.
The game room was not too far from Chu Li and Rong Yan’s room. When Chu
Li wanted to accompany Rong Yan, she instead felt that Chu Li was a pain
in the neck and thus urged him to join Mo Jue, Third Young Master Ye, and
the others. She and Cheng Anya hated a lesson on child bringing, and he,
as a guy, did not like such topics either and hence scooted away to join
them in the game room.
Third Young Master Ye, following his marriage, was very obedient and
never played for a long time. Despite that, he had a penchant for winning
thanks to his skill and indeed won big. At the game table, Third Young
Master Ye and Chu Li had a problem…
Ye Wei’s dowry.
The two representatives from the bride’s family started to talk to Mo
Jue about the dowry. Chu Li wanted dowry, and so did Third Young Master
Ye. Since Mo Ye was not present, Bai Ye naturally sided with Chu Li and
Third Young Master Ye.
Mo Jue invoked the child bride argument and left the two scheming men so
stunned they were lost for words.
Following their shock, Third Young Master Ye said, “My family took care
of Ye Wei for three to four years before Su Ruyu took care of her. That
would hence serve as a basis for him wanting dowry. Besides, taking Ye
Wei away without saying a word then invalidated the case of Ye Wei being
a child bride…”
Chu Li also quickly responded and the two of them took on Mo Jue in
concert, striving to scheme Mo Jue for dowry. Unable to keep up with
their relentless assault, Mo Jue threw in the towel and said that he had
to discuss that with his elder brother. The two of them eventually spared
An intense game followed.
In Rong Yan’s room, the few women were talking as Little Hailan took
small, dainty bites of cake in Ye Wei’s embrace. When Ye Wei said they
would get married in April, everybody was overjoyed.
It seemed as though they had never heard the exact wedding date.
“Hey, you can’t be so overboard, okay? Isn’t April just two months
away?” Rong Yan said. “Why should I get married this early? I was
hoping my son could become my flower boy.”
“Chu Li would agree for sure.” Ye Wei harrumphed. While Chu Li and
Rong Yan were supposed to get married, little did they expect Rong Yan to
feel that she looked terrible with a bulge and thus turn down the
marriage. Chu Li was infuriated, and chances were that he would insist
that she marry him once she delivered.
“Whether he agrees or not, he still has to iron things out with my old
man.” Rong Yan smiled. She had a premonition that once her child was
born, her father and Chu Li’s relationship would become warmer since he
felt good having a grandson.
Little Hailan looked at her bulge curiously and said, “Mommy, is your
younger brother in there?”
“Uh, yes. Doesn’t Little Hailan want a younger brother too? Mommy can
Little Hailan shook her head immediately. “I just want an elder
