100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-844
The next morning, Ye Ningyuan got up the earliest and went for a jog
along the coast.
Jogging had become a habit for him. He would always go for a morning run
unless he was too tired from staying up too late the previous night. It
was a habit formed by Little Xu Nuo, and he had never stopped doing it,
even on Paradise Island. The route he took was the same as Xu Nuo’s.
In those days, he was still a delicate boy who couldn’t even run one
round. He went out of breath and felt like he was dying then, but Xu Nuo
made sarcastic remarks and said that he was more delicate than a girl. He
was so agitated by the remark that he gave it his all to catch up with
her. It was a pity that he was young and weak then. He got pranked a lot
by her for being delicate.
He was reminded of her whenever he ran along the coast, and it made him
happy and energized.
‘Nuo Nuo, how nice it would be if you were here to run with me.’
He had sworn to become stronger than her so that she would not look down
on him anymore. However, he would let her win if they really fought. He
liked to see her happy and proud…
It was an expression brighter than the sun.
Coincidentally, Silver Cloud had gone for a jog as well. He wore a beach
top and shorts which seemed like the clothes of a teenager. It was
obviously a little old and oversized for him. Nonetheless, they looked
good on him.
The two of them greeted each other and continued jogging along the coast.
Half an hour later, both of them stopped along the coast near the
mountains and walked back. Ye Ningyuan tried to chat with Silver Cloud,
but because he was an introvert, he merely answered the questions posed
As usual, he was indifferent and cold. Knowing that it was his
personality, Ye Ningyuan didn’t mind his indifference.
After walking for a while, Silver Cloud asked, “Have you noticed
anything strange about An Xunuo?”
“What’s strange about her?”
“Don’t you think that she resembles Xu Nuo a lot?”
Ye Ningyuan smiled. “Yes, they are similar. Personality, habits,
hobbies. Very similar. But so what?”
“Do you think that it is really the end when humans die?” Silver
Cloud pondered for a while and asked.
Ye Ningyuan did not answer him. Silver Cloud continued saying,
“Sometimes, I feel like Xu Nuo has revived when I look at An Xunuo.”
“There are many similar people in the world,” Ye Ningyuan said calmly.
“I don’t believe that you have never had doubts about it at all,”
Silver Cloud said. Knowing how much Ye Ningyuan loved Xu Nuo, he knew
that he must have sincerely hoped for Xu Nuo to be alive. But… Why was
he so calm about this? He was obviously reminding Ye Ningyuan that An
Xunuo could be Xu Nuo, but why was he behaving as if nothing had
happened? Shouldn’t he be excited?
“No!” Ye Ningyuan hesitated and said firmly.
“Whatever you say. No matter how much she looked like Xu Nuo, she is
not Xu Nuo. I would never be confused because of a Xu Nuo look-alike,
unless she is proven to be Xu Nuo. However, all the facts tell me that
she isn’t Xu Nuo. What is there to be confused about?” Ye Ningyuan
was honest. What he had said was from the bottom of his heart.
His reply was unexpected. Silver Cloud had originally wanted to tell Ye
Ningyuan about the snakes, the iron gate, and An Xunuo’s strange
behaviors on the island during those two days. He was sure that An Xunuo
was Xu Nuo, although he did not know what had happened to her.
But words got in his way when he was about to speak.
‘Tell him for what?’
Xu Nuo had died for him, which proved her love for him. The lovesickness
he had suffered all these years was insignificant to what Xu Nuo had done
for him. Since he was so sure that An Xunuo wasn’t Xu Nuo, then… Let
him be. Who knows? He might feel sorry toward Xu Nuo for falling in love
with An Xunuo. The pain and struggle that he experienced would then prove
Xu Nuo and he were still young then, and they might not have known what
love was. Even if the relationship was unforgettable, so many years had
passed. He might have told himself not to betray Xu Nuo and keep her in
mind always because of the regret at that time.
What choice would he make if he had fallen in love with someone again?
Silver Cloud was looking forward to what he would do. He hoped that Xu
Nuo would be happy, so he wished that Ye Ningyuan would fall in love with
An Xunuo, if they were really the same person.
If Ye Ningyuan could fall in love with An Xunuo, it wouldn’t be too
late to tell him then. The past is the past, after all, but no one could
predict if he would fall in love with An Xunuo.
They could find the answer to it together after everything was settled
Everything would be in vain if Ye Ningyuan didn’t fall in love with An
Xunuo. Silver Cloud didn’t want Ye Ningyuan to love An Xunuo because
she was Xu Nuo. He wanted him to fall in love with An Xunuo because she
was An Xunuo.
Silver Cloud gave it a thought and gloated about how much of a dilemma Ye
Ningyuan would be in in the near future. ‘Well, I’ll treat his
suffering as compensation for my failure to kill him all these years.’
‘Hmm, I am quite evil.’
Xu Xing waved at them in the distance and invited them to breakfast. Ye
Ningyuan responded to her and turned around to look at Silver Cloud.
“You’d better leave your organization as soon as possible. Xu Xing
isn’t suitable for a bloody and cruel world.”
Silver Cloud kept silent.
Phoebe had prepared a simple and delicious breakfast for them. An Xunuo
woke up with a pale face, and she couldn’t eat much. After breakfast,
Ye Ningyuan suggested that they go back to London. No one had objections.
Xu Xing had originally wanted to stay for a few more days, but thinking
of the snakes in the mountains, she dropped the idea. An Xunuo ate her
breakfast quietly and nodded when Ye Ningyuan asked.
Nobody asked why she had fainted under the tree. An Xunuo didn’t plan
to tell them either. Her face was scarily cold.
The four of them boarded the helicopter after saying their goodbyes to
Phoebe and her family. Ye Ningyuan and An Xunuo were on one helicopter,
while Silver Cloud and Xu Xing were on the other. On the way back, Silver
Cloud told Xu Xing about how he, using An Xunuo’s name, kidnapped her
and the things that happened to the Xu family truthfully. Xu Xing merely
laughed it off and said that she had a grasp of what to do next. Silver
Cloud said nothing more.
Unlike them, An Xunuo and Ye Ningyuan were quiet. They did not talk at
all on the way back to London. No one knew what was on their minds.
The helicopter landed on the hardstand in the castle. An Xunuo did not
stay in the Top Terrorist Organization. Instead, she thanked Ye Ningyuan
Ye Ningyuan did not persuade her to stay.
