An Xunuo wasn’t angry or agitated. She sneered coldly. “Young Master
Ye sure is good at doing things stealthily.”
He had stolen her chip the last time without her knowing too.
“It seems so.” Ye Ningyuan laughed. He put down his arm and threw her
the earring. “It looks like you are flying into a rage out of
“You’re wrong!” An Xunuo said in a cold voice. She broke into a
faint and cold smile. “It is rare for me to meet a worthy opponent. Why
would I turn angry from embarrassment?”
“Miss An, can I ask you a question?”
“If I wasn’t as strong as you, would you kill me today?” Ye
Ningyuan smiled. The mellow moonlight that fell on her covered her face
as though it was a layer of thin veil, hiding the emotions on her face.
An Xunuo was indifferent and cool about it. “Why would I let you off?”
Ye Ningyuan looked at her silently. An Xunuo felt annoyed all of a sudden
and hated his intense gaze that felt as though he could see through her.
She turned her face away subconsciously and looked up slightly. Looking
at the moon in the sky, her expression remained calm and indifferent. Ye
Ningyuan frowned slightly. He was a little frustrated as well. How he
wished he could wipe the indifference off her eyebrows and the paleness
on her face.
When he first saw her in Cambridge University, he recognized her as An
Xunuo right away. Actually, he always knew that she existed. He once
mistook her as someone else when he was young, and he even impulsively
ordered someone to run a check on her background. Later, when he met her
again, he always had doubts in his heart. ‘Who is she? Is she Nuo
Nuo?’ These questions stayed in his heart for many years.
Everyone told him that Nuo Nuo was dead, and they even had the body
tested. It was confirmed to be her. Nobody dared to touch the wounds in
his heart. ‘It would be nice if Xunuo was Nuo Nuo.’ He imagined that
every time he missed Nuo Nuo.
Once, the desire of wanting that imagination to come true had become so
strong that he almost went berserk.
After so many years, he had calmed down and was no longer irrational like
he was in the past. Every movement and smile of Xunuo’s was deeply
lodged in his heart. Upon looking at An Xunuo, he felt as if the two of
them were overlapped together.
He knew that she wasn’t his Nuo Nuo.
He kept reminding himself about that, but he still seemed to have
developed feelings for her. If the person who wanted to kill him wasn’t
her, she wouldn’t be allowed to live at his house for three days, nor
would he have tried to make her happy.
Her gaze was full of vicissitudes and loneliness. He felt sorry for her,
especially when she was quiet.
He thought that it might be because her personality, looks, and habits
were too similar to Nuo Nuo’s that he developed feelings of consolation
and yearning. He just could not be heartless to her in order to avoid
trouble later on.
Just like how he had doted on and cared for Xu Xing, he could give her
anything, except loving her in a romantic way. He merely wanted to treat
Xing Xing well, like how he would treat Nuo Nuo.
He didn’t regard her as a replacement of Xunuo. Treating her well was a
way for him to compensate for his regret.
“That’s enough for today!” An Xunuo turned around and paused.
Without turning her head back, she said calmly, “Ye Ningyuan, I will
still take your life the next time we meet.”
She walked away. Her red skirt fluttered in the wind, and she left him a
familiar back view, which gradually disappeared in the street.
Ye Ningyuan sighed.
Suddenly, a faint figure emerged by his side. “Brother, there’s
something wrong with you.”
“Hailan, what are you doing?”
“Enjoying the drama.” Ye Hailan winked. “She is good at fighting.
You almost lost your life today.”
“I’m telling the truth. She had already reached for her gun when you
were taking her earring off. If she fired the gun, you would be dead, if
not seriously injured. However, she chose to strangle you with the whip.
Brother, you’re lucky that you survived.” Ye Hailan laughed. She had
witnessed everything clearly by the sidelines.
Ye Ningyuan was stunned. ‘She showed mercy?’
An Xunuo… What a weird woman. Although he might not have died if she
shot him, the bullet would have injured him greatly, which would have
made killing him easier.
However, she did not do that. ‘Why did she change her mind?’
‘A woman like her couldn’t have changed her mind easily.’
“I bet Sister Xunuo wouldn’t come back again. I kind of miss her. She
is actually not bad,” Little Hailan said.
“Go home!” Ye Ningyuan looked in the direction where she left.
‘Amazing. How could she win the hearts of the Ye family in such a short
“Brother!” Ye Hailan’s voice was soft and gentle. She said calmly,
“You are doomed.”
The Ye family was not affected by An Xunuo’s departure. Cheng Anya knew
that she was there to kill Ye Ningyuan, and so did Third Young Master Ye.
However, the both of them had always closed both eyes to Ye Ningyuan’s
But Ye Feimo and Ye Hailan missed the excitement they had felt when they
played with An Xunuo.
Ye Ningyuan went to visit the Zhang family and asked his friends out to
play. He spent four days with his family peacefully and happily. However,
he heard shocking news. Michael, the speaker of the House of Lords, was
assassinated. He was shot five times in the chest and killed on the spot.
His eldest son, Harry, was shot several times when he tried to save his
father and family. His whereabouts were unknown. None of the six servants
and drivers in the house survived, and his daughter, Ophelia, killed a
member of the House of Lords and her family ruthlessly to avenge her
father. Ophelia caused a stir in the British upper-class society and
became a wanted man. The city of London was under siege, trying to locate
An Xunuo’s photo was published all over the headline news as well.
Ye Ningyuan’s frown grew deeper. How did this happen? From what he
knew, Michael had great powers and he called the shots in the world of
politics. He was bold, open-minded, hearty, and lovable. No one had ever
heard that he had any enemies or whatsoever. Why would anyone want to
assassinate him all of a sudden and kill him in his own mansion?
There hadn’t been any important events happening in the British
government lately. It shouldn’t be anything related to politics.
“It’s Sister Xunuo…” Ye Hailan muttered. “How did things turn
out this way?”
‘She was still playing with us happily a few days ago. How did she
become a fugitive in such a short time?’
“This lady is cruel!” Third Young Master Ye said calmly. He tucked
his lips and looked at Ye Ningyuan. “Son, what do you say?”
Ye Ningyuan smiled. “Mommy, I’m sorry. I’ll have to break my
promise again. I’m going back to London.”
