My Wife is a Beautiful CEO - chapter-859-unworthy
It took Yang Chen several hours to return to Zhonghai.
He thought it was going to be a normal morning beginning with breakfast
but he did not expect to see guests so early in the morning.
â€œWhy are you here?â€ Yang Chen asked.
Guo Xuehua frowned and chided him. â€œYou should greet them as your aunt
Yang Chen pursed his lips. â€œForce of habit.â€
Guo Xuehua wanted to pinch his ears but chose not to when she remembered
Yuan Hewei and Yang Jieyu didnâ€™t mind. In fact, they wouldnâ€™t have
come if he wasnâ€™t a relative.
They heard from the Yang clan that Yang Chen had wiped out the
Klyuchevsky family in less than a day!
They couldnâ€™t help but shiver when they saw Yang Chen walk in like it
was an ordinary day.
Nonetheless, it was reassuring to know that he was part of their family.
Yang Chen saw Lin Ruoxi looking at him with a weird gaze so he walked
over and asked cautiously, â€œDear, whatâ€™s wrong? Why are you staring
like that? Hehe, happy to see me, arenâ€™t you?â€
Lin Ruoxi couldnâ€™t see any form of resentment in his eyes.
Lin Ruoxi couldnâ€™t help but loathe herself for the choices that she
made. She lowered her head and said with a hollow voice, â€œItâ€™s
nothing, I didnâ€™t sleep well.â€
Yang Chen knew there was something wrong but chose to focus his attention
instead on Yang Jieyu. â€œYou still havenâ€™t told me the reason for your
Yang Jieyu smiled. â€œYour grandfather asked us to come over. We wanted
to praise you for what you did and talk about Miss Janeâ€¦â€
Yang Jieyu repeated what she told the others earlier and then looked at
Yang Chen in expectance.
Yang Chen sat down and opened up a rice dumpling. He took a bite before
speaking. â€œWhat a great plan. They lost their maniac Yan Buwen and now
they want Jane to take his place. Even the UK military failed to convince
Jane to produce weapons. What makes you think China will fare any better?
I bet they are trying to use my relationship with her to make her stay
â€œWe are only here to relay the message. But no country would give up on
Jane,â€ Yang Jieyu said.
Yang Chen shook his head. â€œTell the old man and others that Jane will
stay for reasons only she approves of. She wonâ€™t be going to Beijing to
help the military.â€
Yang Jieyu tried to persuade him. â€œAre you sure thereâ€™s no other way?
Are you really not going to change your mind?â€
â€œDonâ€™t make me repeat myself,â€ Yang Chen said.
Yuan Hewei stopped his wife before she could say anything more.
â€œThatâ€™s enough. We did not come here to convince him. We are only
here to relay a message.â€
Yang Jieyu sighed and smiled at him. â€œAlright, Iâ€™ll convey your
message to them in Beijing. But Yang Chen, didnâ€™t you say you want to
visit Beijing, why havenâ€™t you gone?â€
Lin Ruoxi looked up, curious to know what he would say.
Yang Chen swallowed the rice dumpling and said in a nonchalant manner,
â€œI like to settle my issues all in one go. Once everything is complete,
Yang Jieyu and Yuan Hewei had nothing left to say. Although he looked and
acted friendly, it was always best to stay on his good side.
Finally, Yang Jieyu said to him, â€œYang Chen, Yuan Ye is throwing a
party for Tang Tang to celebrate her acceptance into Zhonghai University.
It would be great if you and your family could attend. Plus Zhenxiu has
also gotten her results right? What university did she get into?â€
Guo Xuehua exclaimed in shock. â€œThe results are out?â€
Yuan Hewei replied, â€œItâ€™s already July so of course the results are
already out. You can check it through your phone, didnâ€™t you know
Guo Xuehua felt awkward despite having two sons. Both her sons did not
attend college, so she did not know what was standard protocol regarding
Lin Ruoxi was excited too. â€œLetâ€™s check back with Zhenxiu when she
They continued to chat and Yang Jieyu kept telling Yang Chen to attend
the party. She assured him that only close friends would be there.
Yang Chen accepted her invitation after being overwhelmed by her requests.
After the couple left, Lin Ruoxi helped Wang Ma clean the table quietly.
She was about to leave for work but was stopped by Yang Chen. He caught
her hand and asked gently, â€œRuoxi, is everything alright? Did I do
anything that upset you? Why havenâ€™t you looked at me ever since I
Lin Ruoxi bit her lip and turned around. â€œNo, itâ€™s not your fault.
Yang Chen got even more confused. â€œDid anyone bully you? Damn it, I
only left for a day. Iâ€™ll kill the person who bullied you.â€
Lin Ruoxi looked up at him. â€œAll you talk about is killing. Is it
really that fun?â€
Yang Chenâ€™s face fell and he said awkwardly, â€œItâ€”itâ€™s just an
exampleâ€¦ An exampleâ€¦â€
â€œExample?â€ Lin Ruoxi looked at him with a complex gaze. â€œDo you
really think I canâ€™t tell? Aunt and Uncle were afraid of you. Even your
own family live in fear of your presence. Did you go out and kill
Yang Chen was startled. He didnâ€™t expect Lin Ruoxi to find out. But he
had forgotten that she was a businesswoman. Reading facial cues was her
â€œIâ€™m sorryâ€¦â€ Yang Chen sighed. â€œI didnâ€™t know that it would
upset you so much.â€
â€œYouâ€™re apologizing again.â€ Lin Ruoxi gave a pained smile. â€œWhat
do you even apologize for? You did nothing wrong to me!â€
Yang Chen was puzzled to see Lin Ruoxi get all agitated again.
Lin Ruoxi cupped her face helplessly and started to sob while squatting
on the floor.
Yang Chen didnâ€™t know what to do as he squatted down and tried to touch
her shoulder. But he was afraid it would upset her even more.
â€œDonâ€™t call me that!â€ Lin Ruoxiâ€™s eyes were red with tears. â€œI
donâ€™t deserve to be your wife. Weâ€™re from two different worlds.â€
Yang Chenâ€™s mind went blank!
â€œFor you, killing and breathing are the same thing. Money and power
come to those who are willing to kill. Even if you killed a thousand
people, you wouldnâ€™t bat an eye. But if I saw one dead person, I would
get nightmares for weeks.â€
â€œYour enemies arenâ€™t even human. To them, Iâ€™m not your wife. Iâ€™m
just a hostage waiting to be captured. I canâ€™t help you at all and I
know nothing. Other than fighting with you about women, I have nothing
left to offer. My dignity, my pride, and my beliefs are just a piece of
fragile paper in front of you. Yet I value you so much, donâ€™t you think
Iâ€™m a foolish woman? Huh! Am I?!â€
Yang Chen looked at her numbly. It wasnâ€™t his first time witnessing her
meltdown. But it was her first time that she showed her insecurities.
Tears splattered on the floor.
â€œSometimes I wonderâ€¦ if your lovers are happier than I am, your own
wife? They donâ€™t have to feel unworthy to be by your side, worry about
other women or wonder if you are coming home. If I was your lover, I
wouldnâ€™t be in so much pain.â€
â€œRuoxi, donâ€™t do thisâ€¦â€ Yang Chen squeezed the words out of his
Lin Ruoxi shook her head. â€œYang Chen, you made the right choice. Jane
should stay beside you. Only she has the intelligence to help you and is
worthy to be your woman. Sheâ€™s pretty and she comes from a royal
family. Sheâ€™s smart and can be there for you to rely on. She loves you
so much that she would sacrifice herself to marry a monster. She
wouldnâ€™t have nightmares just because you killed someone or be
threatened by your lovers. Because no one else can be on her levelâ€¦â€
â€œLin Ruoxi!â€ Yang Chenâ€™s eyes widened in anger. â€œWhat are you
