100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-804
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The study room was very quiet. Ye Ningyuan had a huge volume of work to
clear. He had many documents, which were already filtered and compiled by
Green Dragon, White Tiger, Black Tortoise, and Rosefinch, to read and
approve. He had to spend over ten hours on work daily, and his
accompanying An Xunuo caused his work to pile up. One could only hear the
flipping of pages in the room.
An Xunuo quietly read her fairy tales and Ye Ningyuan would occasionally
look up to ask her what she was reading and whether it made for good
reading. An Xunuo would obediently reply whenever she asked. If Ye
Ningyuan did not ask, she would also quietly read on.
The light in the study room was very bright. He turned to look at An
Xunuo. She was lying on her side and gently smiling in a pleasant
calmness. It was a beautiful sight to behold. He never knew that she had
such a gentle side to her.
He smiled and continued his work.
An Xunuo gently yawned and looked at the clock. It was already past
midnight, so she slowly put down her book. Her eyes were aching. She
wondered whether she ought to take a nap before waking up to read again.
When Ye Ningyuan looked up, she was already asleep.
He looked at his watch, went over, and carefully carried An Xunuo to her
room. She was a deep sleeper and continued sleeping, snuggling into his
He covered her with the blanket, and she turned her head. Her clear
breathing was quite shallow, and her pale face was rather red. Even when
she was asleep, she was adorable. Ye Ningyuan ran his slender fingers
across her face. The skin beneath his finger pulps was as tender as silk
and fragrant. His eyes had agonizing pain in them. ‘Xunuo, when would
you wake up?’
Michael’s death had impacted her too greatly that she had yet to
recover. That, along with the torture she endured in the asylum,
destroyed her and caused her to clam up. When he saw surveillance footage
of her being tortured, his anger was way beyond what he could imagine. He
could still remember how easily he carried her when she collapsed.
Even until now, he wondered why he saved her.
Michael’s murder, her arrest, and subsequent torture had nothing to do
with him. Why did he even risk his life to save her?
Was it her tragic screams, or her lonely and despondent gaze? Or was it
those few days they spent in City A that he treated her as a friend? He
smiled mockingly at himself. He acted more out of rashness than of reason.
He and An Xunuo had a special relationship. Whether he admitted it or
not, that was the case.
He hoped that she would recover sooner. While she was indeed adorable and
lovely, that was Xunuo’s other side. The cold and tough Xunuo was the
When he saw her cry for the first time, he had a very complicated mix of
emotions. How could the Xunuo he knew cry so weakly and feebly when she
was the kind of girl who wouldn’t even flinch even if the sky came
crumbling down? She was so strong and tough that she ought not to be
struck down by pain.
But she, having forgotten everything, was so happy and carefree in her
sleep. If she woke up from it, how painful and saddened would she be? It
was afraid that her losing everything was the very reason she shut
He sighed from the depths of his heart, gently walked out of the room,
and closed the door before returning to work in the study room.
“Green Dragon, how’s Michael’s investigation going?” He called
the office line for Green Dragon and flatly asked.
“Big Boss, there’s something mysterious and complicated about this
and I need a few days more. As of now, there are several detectives and
lawyers who are investigating what happened to Michael, and things are
happening to them. I only have some clues on hand and do not dare to draw
any conclusions too brazenly. I’ll gather everything for you once
I’ve confirmed it.”
“As soon as possible!”
At three in the morning, he returned to his room and rested. As he had
spent too much time with Xunuo, he had to work late into the night and
was extremely tired. He went to bed late, and he heard footsteps at the
door just an hour into his sleep.
As he was a light sleeper, he was able to hear even the slightest
rustling. While the footsteps were very light, he could clearly hear
them. Those footsteps were followed by the opening of doors. Ye Ningyuan
slightly opened his eyes to see Xunuo, carrying her pillow, walking in
barefooted, and gently closing the door.
Ye Ningyuan frowned. What was she up to? Acting as though he could not
sleep, he remained quiet as An Xunuo gently went up to his bed and put
down her pillow. As she was afraid that she would awaken Ye Ningyuan, she
only relaxed when she saw his steady breathing before cutely smiling and
carefully crawling onto the bed. She gently lifted up a corner of the
blanket and snuggled beneath it, sleeping next to Ye Ningyuan. Xunuo,
feeling unsatisfied, wrapped her arm around Ye Ningyuan’s arm, held it
before her chest, and gently said, “That does it.”
She sounded exceptionally content.
Ye Ningyuan felt embarrassed at how his palm rested on her abdomen and
how his arm tightly rested on her bosoms. The feeling of having another
woman next to him was extremely evident, and her fragrance snuck into his
nose like a snake, entrapping his heart in a layer of silk.
How could he sleep?
“Xunuo, what brings you here?” He turned on the switch to the bed
lights and the room lit up. Xunuo looked at him with her beady eyes as
though she was at a loss as to why he suddenly woke up. She, like a
naughty girl, buried her head in his arms even more tightly and had a
somewhat pitiful look in her. Ye Ningyuan, who was about to speak, held
back his words.
“I want to sleep with Daddy,” An Xunuo said softly, gently, and in
slight indignation. “I’m really afraid to seep in such a large house
all by myself. I can’t sleep well.”
Ye Ningyuan, taken aback, turned her face around. An Xunuo’s gaze was
full of indignation and frustration. “Who hit you?” He was bewildered.
“Bad people,” An Xunuo said angrily. “He was so bad because he
forced me to run every day. When I get tired from fighting people and
sneak a rest, he would hit me with a very long whip that hurts so much.
It hurts so much…”
Ye Ningyuan frowned. What exactly was she describing? A nightmare?
“All is good. It’s just a nightmare.” Ye Ningyuan stroked her face.
He felt sweat and was in shock. It really seemed that she just had a very
“It’s not a nightmare!” An Xunuo blinked and pointed to her back.
“My back! My back is still hurting.”
Ye Ningyuan gently smiled. “All is good. It’s just a dream. Daddy
occasional has nightmares too.”
Ye Ningyuan nodded. “He is a really bad person. I dislike this bad guy
who always bullies me. Did I really have a nightmare? He had just hit me,
and I was thinking of killing him when I grew up before I plucked out all
his hair and beard.”
“Very well, then. Daddy will help you remove his beard. Be good and go
back to your room and sleep.”
