Ye Ningyuan tucked his lips tightly and did not say a word. An Xunuo,
seemingly realizing something, remained quiet throughout.
As they remained silent throughout, the car entered the highway and
sirens blared in the direction of the Sophie Vasi. The fire brigade and
armed police were all in force since everybody thought that a massive
firefight among the triads had taken place.
Ye Ningyuan’s thoughts were too scrambled, and he stopped his car by
the roadside before he suddenly hit the steering wheel with both his
hands. ‘Damn it, Hailan, where are you?’ To Third Young Master Ye and
Ye Ningyuan, Ye Hailan’s presence was a special presence as she had the
ability to freely travel around the world and had mysterious and powerful
abilities that no mortal men could stand against. Whenever Third Young
Master Ye or Ye Ningyuan encountered trouble, Ye Hailan came to their
They had never thought of how Hailan would meet with a mishap someday.
“Did something happen to your younger sister?” An Xunuo felt Ye
Ningyuan’s anxiousness and gently asked. Sensing that Ye Ningyuan did
not want to say anything, An Xunuo tucked her lips and turned away. Even
the sky over Mexico City was overcast and gloomy.
An Xunuo closed her eyes and clenched her fists. For once, she was lost
for words, and heart-wrenching pain and regret crept into her heart. Ye
Ningyuan took out his cell phone and called White Tiger. “White Tiger,
have men search the Sophie Vasi and check the bodies to see if Ye
Hailan’s body is amongst them.”
As the old statement crashed onto An Xunuo’s heart, she looked at Ye
Ningyuan who still remained as calm as though nothing had happened. She
did not know how he felt when he said ‘bodies’, and she had never
seen him this solemn before.
His hands and the steering wheel were covered with An Xunuo’s blood,
and she felt her heart ache. If anything happened to Hailan, even her
thousands of deaths would make no amendment.
Ye Ningyuan’s despondent voice seemingly rang in her ears. He said that
he had already lost Nuo Nuo and could not afford to lose her. He told her
to give him a chance, and he would make it all up to her.
Recalling it now, it was nothing short of very wishful thinking, full of
An Xunuo looked down and gently smiled. People like her should not have
happiness or expectations. What was she looking forward to? She wore a
necklace he gave, and she hated her amnesiac self despite clearly
remembering her interactions with him. She, in her foolishness, wanted to
take a gamble. If Ye Ningyuan left peacefully, she would wreck all the
information she gathered about him, along with her honor, mission, and
promise to her father. If Ye Ningyuan died… heh. She was weird in the
sense she never expected Ye Ningyuan to die.
In her memory, he was a man who would succeed whenever he put his mind to
it. She hence never thought of him dying. When he was about to be shot,
her heart acted ahead of her body and she quickly leaped before him. She
knew that bullet would take his life.
But she had no regrets.
She wondered if she loved him way more than she had thought. If it
weren’t the case, why would she give her all to protect him? Given Ye
Ningyuan’s skill, he definitely would have been able to sense the
danger. Even if he couldn’t have dodged the bullet, the bullet would
not have hit his vitals.
She knew way better than anybody else but still took the bullet for him.
In the end, she could not bear to see him hurt.
She must have been mad!
“Ye Ningyuan, I am sorry!” An Xunuo’s head ached for whatever
reason. Ye Hailan’s spiritual powers not only healed her wounds but all
her past injuries.
Including her memory.
Just as her head sharply ached, some bloody images flashed through her,
bringing her agonizing pain. She did not know what to do with the pain.
“Xunuo, I received a call when I was on my way to the Sophie Vasi,”
Ye Ningyuan plainly said. An Xunuo felt her heart jolt when he slowly
turned around and looked at An Xunuo calmly. “Do you want to guess what
that person told me?”
An Xunuo remained expressionless. Her clenched fists gave away how she
felt. Did Ye Ningyuan learn of it?
“You learned that the Top Terrorist Organization had a hand in your
daddy’s, Michael’s, death and you hence wanted me dead. Is that
Ye Ningyuan was telling the truth, and An Xunuo could not say anything in
return. When the Michael incident occurred, Ye Ningyuan was actually not
in the know about it. Xu Mingyang once sought assistance from the Top
Terrorist Organization’s intelligence department to have them provide
him intelligence. Ye Ningyuan was in City A back then, and Xu
Mingyang’s mission was a small mission that was not under Azure
Dragon’s jurisdiction. Some intelligence team leader in the Top
Terrorist Organization accepted the mission, investigated Michael, and
provided intelligence on it. This hence caused the Michael incident to
blow up so quickly and led to his extremely quick death. Ye Ningyuan then
learned about what had happened after his investigations and was hence
exceptionally nice toward An Xunuo.
Given how huge the Top Terrorist Organization’s intelligence department
was, not to mention the huge number of routine tasks it had to manage, Ye
Ningyuan and Azure Dragon could not check in on all tasks. Only tasks
with certain significance would reach Ye Ningyuan’s table, and
everything else was handled by the ten intelligence team leaders under
Azure Dragon who just had to make a final report.
It was not the first time London sought help from the Top Terrorist
Organization. Since the Top Terrorist Organization had very good ties
with London, they did not go the whole nine yards during regular
government requests for intelligence. The Top Terrorist Organization
would typically accept tasks from London, and the Michael incident was no
exception. To the Top Terrorist Organization, the Michael incident was a
small incident that would not have startled Azure Dragon if An Xunuo and
Ye Ningyuan did not have such an amorous relationship.
An Xunuo felt that the Top Terrorist Organization was clearly at fault.
However, even if the Top Terrorist Organization’s intelligence
department was not involved, others would have been able to dig out all
there was to Michael.
It was merely a matter of time.
If it had been a few days later, An Xunuo would have returned to London
and relocated Michael so that this catastrophe could be avoided. Thanks
to the Top Terrorist Organization’s involvement, Michael died earlier
and An Xunuo was caught off-guard.
If she hated him, he had nothing against that.
He was always of the opinion that An Xunuo was seeking revenge out of
said incident. When she was with him, she had gathered much intelligence.
Ye Ningyuan clearly knew but feigned ignorance of it and indulged her. He
wanted to take a gamble on An Xunuo’s viciousness. Would she be vicious
enough to take his life? If the information she gathered were to be
presented to the anti-terrorist groups, he would be in much trouble as
she had gathered almost all the information on this weapons deal.
They flirted some time ago, but he knew too well how sincere and how fake
they were. Despite that, he opted to acquiesce to her as he felt that An
Xunuo could not bear to.
Little did he expect that she was not out for revenge. She had another
identity: the overall team leader of the international anti-terrorist
special forces team.
