100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-827
Xu Xing carefully medicated him. As she gently medicated him, she would
look up from time to time to ask him whether he was hurting. Her sweet
voice was like a lark, and Silver Cloud looked at her hair, his emotions
fluctuating. She felt he was a tad irate.
There was a hint of gentleness and heartache as though that little wound
on him would take her life. Silver Cloud secretly wondered how these were
just flesh wounds to him that were like a mosquito bite.
However, she really minded.
When Silver Cloud broke into a smile, Xu Xing happened to look up.
“Silver Cloud, you’re smiling…” Xu Xing was full of surprise.
He was very lonely and cold. Having known him for so many years, the
number of times she saw him smile, including cold smiles, could be
counted with a finger. This was the first time she saw him smile so
gently and innocently.
Silver Cloud wiped away his smile and became stern-looking again. Xu Xing
pouted and chuckled. “You look so much better when you smile. Your
tense look makes you way older than you look,” she gently said.
She carefully bandaged Silver Cloud’s wound only to hear him coldly
harrumph. Xu Xing pushed his arm and asked, “Are you questioning my
“You clearly are!”
She stared at Silver Cloud with a huff, and he turned away. Silver Cloud
was actually really silly here. Whether by Oriental or Western standards,
he was a tall and exceptionally beautiful man. While he seemed a tad
colder and harsher, he was no less gorgeous. If he smiled that bit more,
he would have become the prince charming in many teenage girls’ hearts.
Whether it was because she was influenced by Ye Ningyuan, she really
liked men who smiled gently. Although she knew that Ye Ningyuan’s smile
had a distance and indifference to it, she did not mind.
She liked smiles and the goodness that came out from innocent smiles.
As a pampered princess since young, she had not encountered much and was
very well taken care of. She hence had this innocence and pureness to her
that she kept. Such girls were indeed a rare find.
“Silver Cloud, why are there so many similar mansions here?” There
were about ten similar mansions in a row that did not occupy much space.
They were very beautiful and stood independently. One of the mansions was
slightly larger than the rest despite blending in and looking that tad
The mansions were separated by white camellias, making it seem as though
the mansions were in a sea of flowers. They were exceptionally beautiful.
“Ah, that’s where my friends previously stayed,” Silver Cloud
“Previous residence? They seemed very old,” Xu Xing said. “There
are so many such mansions, and you must have many friends. Where have
“They have died!” Silver Cloud sounded cold.
Xu Xing was taken aback and could not say a word. “I’m sorry. I said
too much.” She felt bad and gritted her teeth.
Silver Cloud saw her somewhat solemn face and couldn’t help but
solemnly say, “All is good.”
In the afternoon, Xu Xing’s stomach growled. Silver Cloud stood at the
balcony and looked out into the ocean quietly as though he were deep in
thought. Not wanting to disturb him, she quietly stepped out of the
She was so famished she went around looking for food.
There was only one family on the island. All the other houses were
demolished and many patches of camellias were grown in place of them. Xu
Xing easily located the place, and the couple warmly welcomed her. As she
had saved their children, they liked her and gave her a basket of fruits,
seaweed, rice, flour, and live fish. Xu Xing was extremely grateful
The couple did not ask who they were. Xu Xing was kind and well brought
up. The couple really adored her and sent her back. They only bid
farewell when they approached the mansion. Xu Xing carried the fruits and
vegetables back and saw Silver Cloud run out with a solemn look. When
Silver Cloud saw her, his face became much more at ease. “Where were
“I was hungry,” Xu Xing said.
Silver Cloud looked at the things in her hand and frowned. Xu Xing walked
over and passed him all she had. “What for?” Silver Cloud raised his
“I’m hungry!” Xu Xing repeated as she blinked. “I can’t cook.”
Silver Cloud’s face became glum and he subconsciously wanted to throw
away all that was in his hands. To cook? Like, really cook? How could he,
a guy, cook? What joke was that? Xu Xing’s stomach growled timely, and
she stroked her stomach before looking at Silver Cloud as though he were
tending to some huge pet.
His anger was extinguished little by little. He roughly took over the
things in her hand and headed in.
Xu Xing happily followed him and asked in an overboard manner, “Silver
Cloud, do you know how to cook? Does your cooking taste good?”
Silver Cloud turned back and stared at Xu Xing, who smiled innocently.
Seeing Xu Xing smiled, one could not bear to reprimand her. Silver Cloud
quietly headed to the kitchen. As Ye Ningyuan often came to stay here,
the mansions’ gas, water, and electrical supplies were interconnected,
so he could use all the kitchen appliances.
It was just that the pots and pans were a tad old and rusty, and there
were no replacements. “I’ll wash them!” Xu Xing said as she stroked
“Are you very hungry?”
Xu Xing nodded and stroked her stomach to signal her hunger. Silver Cloud
looked at her, reminding her not to move. He went out and returned in ten
minutes with a brand new set of cutlery, condiments, etc.
“Where did you get this from?”
“I borrowed them,” Silver Cloud plainly said. Xu Xing thought that he
borrowed them from the couple and smiled. She then helped wash the
vegetables. Silver Cloud saw her slender and pale fingers. Those were
fingers of a person who never did household chores. He suddenly pulled
her over and had her remain at the door.
“You’re getting in the way.”
Xu Xing felt a little aggrieved. She just wanted to help. Silver Cloud
was too overboard. But when she saw how he deftly got down to work, she
felt she was really getting in the way. Silver Cloud moved the knife in
his hands, and a fish quickly and perfectly transformed into a slightly
bloody mess. Xu Xing tucked her lips. It was a good thing that she was
not so sheltered to the point she could not stomach anything after seeing
At that moment, an aroma came from the kitchen…
“Silver Cloud, if we are staying for a few more days, we need to watch
how much we eat. There is nothing on the island that is edible, and we
will have to ask people for food, which is quite embarrassing,” Xu Xing
“Can you live with very spartan meals then?”
“Stop looking down on people, please. Is it a must for me to have
delicacies day in day out?” Xu Xing retorted.
Silver Cloud did not say anything else.
“Silver Cloud, you are good. Is there anything you cannot do?” Xu
Xing was a little bored. In her mind, Silver Cloud was all-capable and
nothing seemed to faze him in any way.
Silver Cloud acted as though he were deep in thought. “Delivering
children,” he said.
“…How lame,” Xu Xing replied.
