100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-822
An Xunuo stopped in her steps and looked back at him coldly. “One more
word from you and I’ll be in the mood to kill.”
Ye Ningyuan smiled and turned his head. “Miss An, please treat me to
dinner,” he suddenly said.
“I’ve no money!” An Xunuo coldly looked at him. “Don’t you know
that my bank account has been frozen?”
“Given your ability, you can still access a frozen bank account.” Ye
Ningyuan deftly took her case apart with a smile. He knew that while An
Xunuo’s computer skills were not as good as his, few could rival her.
“Don’t you understand the term ‘no’?” She looked at him in
Ye Ningyuan smiled. “Since I took you in for over ten days, surely you
treating me to a meal to thank me is normal, right?”
She could not quite digest the thought of eating with him.
They ended up in a small restaurant. When she saw the table full of
dishes, she did feel hungry. She looked at Ye Ningyuan whilst memories of
her being that little idiot which he doted on flashed through her mind.
She felt very uneasy.
Although he did not show how he doted on her.
He ate with relish as though he had not had a proper meal in days. A
moment later, he realized that Xunuo did not quite move her chopsticks.
“You’re not hungry?” He deliberately seemed lost.
“I’m full,” An Xunuo coldly replied. After she said that, her
stomach growled at the most inappropriate time. An Xunuo was taken back,
whereas Ye Ningyuan broke into laughter. She gave him a cold look as
though she did not hear anything.
Damn it, why did her stomach just have to growl at this time?
Without insisting, she got down to eating.
She suddenly recalled something and asked, “Ye Ningyuan, do you know
somebody called Silver Cloud?”
“You sure know him very well.”
“When I’m up against somebody who wants me dead, I do my homework
very thoroughly. If I didn’t, how did I survive all these years?” Ye
Ningyuan gently smiled. Ever since An Xunuo arrived to kill him, he
started to investigate who could be behind it.
Little did he expect the person to be Silver Cloud. The person was
somewhat mysterious, and nobody knew how he actually looked, or even his
actual age. All they knew was how he wore a silver mask and was an
administrator in An Xunuo’s intelligence organization.
He was of high stature and very smart.
While Ye Ningyuan did not know why he was after his life, he was also not
interested in the reason behind it since wanting someone dead was quite
common in his circle. Since he was responsible for the deaths of many,
somebody would be out for revenge somehow.
Apparently, it’s business as usual.
An Xunuo looked at him coldly. He was indeed right. The reasons for
Silver Cloud wanting him dead did not matter. On the other hand, it felt
too straightforward. He could not give a crap about Silver Cloud at all.
Honestly speaking, she did not quite understand Silver Cloud.
But he was indeed very capable.
She had seen his moves before.
“Why are you telling me that your boss wants me dead?”
“Even if I didn’t tell you, you had already known anyway.”
“Xunuo, it seems…” Ye Ningyuan looked at her tastefully. “You
really care about me.”
An Xunuo dropped the chopsticks loudly and looked at him with a
razor-sharp gaze that would have eviscerated him over and over if looks
could kill. Her cold look was nothing short of intimidating.
“Dear young lady, are you so embarrassed that you are angry?”
“Ye Ningyuan, are you yapping because you are dead?” An Xunuo coldly
asked. Ye Ningyuan raised his eyebrows innocently in response to her
exceptionally cold gaze. Did he say something wrongly?
What did he say?
She surely hadn’t had to be so mean when he was spot-on about how she
He gently smiled. An Xunuo, finding his damn smile an utter eyesore,
could not help but look away. Worrying about him? Hmmph! Who was worried
about him? One had to have so much more free time in the world just to
worry about him.
“Can you privately accept missions?” Ye Ningyuan suddenly asked.
An Xunuo looked back. “I could. What do you have for me?”
“How about you become my bodyguard?”
“Are you kidding? I’m out for your head,” An Xunuo coldly said.
Could he have some situational awareness?
“You’re not in the mood to kill and have nothing to do now. Since you
are bored, how about becoming my bodyguard? The perks are very good.”
Ye Ningyuan smiled, making no effort to blatantly buy her over.
“What kind of benefits?”
“Seeing beautiful men up close.”
An Xunuo was lost for words.
“I’m not free!” She coldly rejected before picking up her
chopsticks and got down to eating. He was babbling nonsense, and it was
no use listening on lest she got swayed by him before she had her fill.
“Xunuo, what’s wrong with occasionally accepting someone’s
kindness?” Ye Ningyuan gently smiled as he looked at her. “There’s
nothing holding you back, and British operatives are after you with their
snares at the ready. How about you pursue stability than run for your
“I don’t need your help.”
“Who else, apart from me, can help you?”
“Me!” An Xunuo immediately replied as she looked at him keenly and
certainly. “It’s always better to turn to oneself than others since
you will not betray yourself. I cannot trust anybody else, you
It was much better for one to not imitate what they were not.
She just did not believe that Ye Ningyuan would take good care of her.
Besides, she would not be forced into a corner by anybody else. Since the
world was so huge, there was definitely somewhere she could take refuge
in. He was surely looking down on her.
“Aye, how headstrong of you.” Ye Ningyuan sighed. “Just yield when
you should. That will make you so much more adorable.”
An Xunuo looked at him coldly. “Don’t treat me like that little
“Miss An, you are that little idiot.”
“I have selective amnesia.”
“You are not even the slightest bit lovely now.”
“What has it got to do with you?”
Ye Ningyuan propped his chin before he suddenly asked with great
interest, “Miss An, have you been in love before?”
“I’ve no time for that.”
It was more likely nobody wanted you, right? Ye Ningyuan broke into
laughter in his heart. He looked at how she looked like she was about to
wallop somebody and was at ease. “I guess, huh? Men don’t like women
who are not adorable.”
“How lame.” That’s none of his business, no? “To me, you’re not
even adorable at all.”
“Miss An has not seen me when I was younger: super moe and
“Younger Master Ye, aren’t you embarrassed to bring up something from
over a decade ago?” An Xunuo harrumphed as she tried to imagine a much
younger him. He was indeed very moe…
“…” Ye Ningyuan broke into laughter again. An Xunuo looked at him
coldly. “Ye Ningyuan, are you really so comfortable with me by your
“Oh, what would you do?”
