100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-843
“What are you talking about?” Xu Xing smiled gently.
“I’ve scared you today. I swear I won’t do it again.” He would
never place her in a dangerous situation ever again. Xu Xing’s life was
more important than knowing whether An Xunuo was Xu Nuo.
“It’s not your fault. If it wasn’t for you, the snake could have
bitten me instead.” Xu Xing snuggled up to him. “I finally know why
Ning Ning’s auntie told me that he and I aren’t people of the same
world. I only realized how useless I am today. You and I are so
different. If anything dangerous happened, I can’t help but feel
scared. There’s nothing I can do to help, and I would even be a burden
to you. I’m really…”
“What are you saying?” Silver Cloud put his hands on her shoulders
and said in a serious tone. “Stop saying these kinds of things. You are
Xu Xing smiled bitterly and asked, “Silver Cloud, do you feel that
I’m bringing you trouble? I can’t even help you at the critical
moment. My presence would only increase your burden.”
“Xing Xing, what’s the matter with you?”
“It’s nothing. I just feel that An Xunuo is a really nice girl. She
is pretty, capable, and calm. She seems to know everything. No wonder
both Ningyuan and you like her so much.” She sounded a little
disappointed. Silver Cloud stared at Xu Xing without saying anything. She
lowered her head. Whenever she was sad, she would look down to cover up
‘This girl seemed to have misunderstood something.’
Silver Cloud smiled. “Xing Xing, are you jealous?”
“No!” Xu Xing denied quickly, making her jealousy more conspicuous.
She looked up and saw Silver Cloud smile. Flustered, she lowered her head
again. Silver Cloud looked so handsome when he smiled. Her heart rate
increased, and she didn’t know what to do.
Silver Cloud said, “Silly Xing Xing, Xunuo is my subordinate who was
once ordered to kill Ye Ningyuan. What are you thinking?”
Silver Cloud nodded. She smiled. He didn’t have to explain to her, nor
was she in any position to know about it. However, his explanation
cleared the unhappiness in her heart and the uneasiness she had
It felt good.
Silver Cloud looked at her smile and seemed to realize something. He
frowned slightly and sighed. With a smile, he said, “You silly girl.”
The sigh of his was filled with love. She smiled even brighter. Silver
Cloud reached for her hand and held her in his arms. “Xing Xing, you
don’t have to mind Xunuo. You are you. You have always been yourself
all these years, and you have your own merits. I… I like the current
‘Did he just say that he likes me?’ Xu Xing had butterflies in her
stomach, and her face turned red. She had always thought that she had
nothing but status and beauty, just like a flower vase. She didn’t
expect that anyone would like her and tell her that she had her own
merits, especially Silver Cloud. She was overjoyed. The feeling of being
on cloud nine made her so dizzy that she grabbed onto his shirt tightly
while nodding profusely.
Ye Ningyuan flipped through Xu Nuo’s letter which recorded some
information about medicine and poison. She had classified the little
snakes she raised and wrote down all the ways to treat each snake venom
in detail. Formulas of poison and antidote were also recorded clearly
He missed the handwriting on the letter and was reminded of Xu Nuo. She
was very interested in medicine and had many books regarding it on her
table. She should be sleeping after the intensive training every day, but
all she did was read, and he had always accompanied her quietly.
Occasionally, the two of them would argue and fight.
He was not Xu Nuo’s match. However, although she was fierce, she did
not really hurt him.
Xu Nuo had a special skill, which was to memorize everything in a book
that she had only read once. That was what she told him. She could write
the whole pharmacological book by heart after reading it once.
That skill was amazing. He was awed by it but also thought that having
that kind of skill might be a pain for her. Being forced to remember
everything must be taxing. However, Xu Nuo didn’t give a damn about it.
Instead, she was always absorbing new knowledge like a sponge. Maybe
because her goal was to kill Wolf then that she was hardworking and
He smiled. There were two spacious study rooms in Xu Nuo’s room, and
even her bedroom was filled with books. It was not an exaggeration at all
to say that she had an encyclopedic mind. However, what she read was
different from what other children read.
‘I miss her so much.’
He had once fallen asleep in a daze then. Under the light, he opened his
eyes and saw her reading and taking notes carefully with all her heart.
Her fair face looked extremely gorgeous as if it was covered with a layer
of hazy light.
He didn’t understand the concept of beauty as he was still young then,
but he thought that she was much better-looking than any girls he had
ever seen in his entire life. People said that men who are serious were
the most charming. In fact, that applied to women as well.
His head hurt suddenly. Ye Ningyuan rubbed his forehead and rose to make
a cup of strong tea. He was not sleepy, but he needed something
refreshing. He continued reading the books for a while after drinking
tea. Then, he turned off the lights and lay on the bed, listening to the
waves and wind quietly with his eyes open. In the dark, no one could see
his face, his thoughts, or his loneliness.
Ye Ningyuan closed his eyes slightly. In his mind, there seemed to be a
new red figure besides Xu Nuo. It was An Xunuo… He was really scared
today. Ever since he had grown up, he had never felt such fear. As if all
his thoughts were cut off by someone, his mind was totally blank then.
However, he gloated over the fact that she wasn’t dead or injured.
He had never had those feelings toward anyone except Xu Nuo.
He felt a stabbing pain in his head. He raised his hand and kissed the
ring with a yellow gem that was on his finger, like he was kissing Xu
Nuo’s cheeks. “Would you be sad if your stone had fallen in love with
Stone, Stone… That was a secret between the two of them. Nobody except
her had called him that.
He liked the nickname. During all these years of loneliness, there had
always been a cold voice shouting for Stone, which chased away his
The ring couldn’t answer him as it wasn’t a living thing. Ye Ningyuan
smiled and gently stroked the ring on his finger. Slowly, he said, “A
jade pendant, a ring, and a yearning. They shall stay with me forever.”
