100m Yuan Wife: Buy One Get One - Chapter 304
The young kid smiled gracefully and snuggled into his mother’s arms. His pinkish face looked mature. He had a solemn look of a little adult. He threw himself at his dear mother and said, “Mommy, don’t be afraid. Baby will take care of you.”
Third Young Master Ye was at a loss as to whether to cry or laugh. His son had nothing but his mother. It was really enviable.
Of course, his wife didn’t need her son to support her. He felt embarrassed to talk about it even if they didn’t.
Eleven sat at one side, always looking cold as ice. Ye Wei was laughing out loud while lying on the sofa and she raised her eyebrows to tease him. “Both of your parents are unemployed. How can you only take care of one?”
The young kid looked at Third Young Master Ye and thought of it seriously. “Strictly speaking, Daddy and Mommy are not married yet, so I can just take care of Mommy.”
In other words, he wasn’t going to care about the poor Third Young Master Ye.
He also knew that Mommy was the one in charge of money at home. Daddy was now literally a poor man. How interesting… It would be more interesting if his mommy ran away with a young handsome man with the money.
Third Young Master Ye knew what his son was thinking. He couldn’t help but stare at him. Ning Ning smiled gracefully and was not afraid of his father.
Daddy, who had no charge over money, had no place at home. This time, being out of job made him even more insignificant at home.
“That’s lovely.” Cheng Anya smiled and patted her baby’s head. If her son wanted to show his filial piety, she would definitely be more than happy to give him a chance. “Darling, Mommy is hungry.”
Usually, Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya would not be home at noon due to work. Furthermore, the young kid was on summer vacation and he had played till late at night. He would usually sleep until the afternoon if he had nothing else to do. Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea was combined as one meal, and then he’d play computer games for a while before going out to the market to buy ingredients and prepare dinner for his parents.
The young kid was not used to seeing them back home so early.
Upon hearing Cheng Anya’s stomach growl, he loosened his shoulders. “Mommy, aren’t you too cooperative?”
Third Young Master Ye returned to his study room and held a conference call with Klose and others. Ning Ning went to buy groceries with Ye Wei and Eleven. They had something to discuss anyway. Miss Cheng had nothing to do and went back to her room. As soon as she went in, the phone rang.
Li Yun asked anxiously, “Anya, what’s wrong with MBS International? What’s with the sudden change?”
Now every financial channel was reporting about this, and the whole City A was in a mess. The actions of Klose, Fourth Young Master Tang and Lin were still considered mild and low-key. The whole City A was under the fear that MBS International might get into the hands of the Mafia and only a few people could acutely sense the real crisis of MBS International.
It had happened too suddenly without any warning. No wonder the public would be surprised. Third Young Master Ye’s opponents must be one of those people who were gloating at Third Young Master Ye’s misfortune. Cheng Anya thought to herself. Selfishness was one of human nature and no one was an exception. They would not let go of such a good chance to rub it in Third Young Master Ye’s face. However, an evil mind might cause them great losses in the months ahead.
Smart people would slow down and get past this stage in a low-key way instead of watching jokes in a high-profile manner.
This was a truth that insiders like her knew. Others might not.
It seemed like this piece of news had already spread to every corner in City A. Cheng Anya thought to herself when Li Yun, a homebody, called to ask.
It was not easy.
“It’s okay. Isn’t it very common in the business world? The old man let the wolf into the house and the dove occupies the magpie’s nest. It’s normal. Calm down. It’s no big deal,” Cheng Anya said with a smile. Her consistent smile made her words sound reassuring.
But Li Yun was very worried about them and couldn’t help but scold her. “Damn it, what really happened? The dove occupying the magpie’s nest? Is your man someone this easy to deal with? It would be a blessing if he doesn’t bully others. Have you encountered any trouble? Don’t hide it. Your opponent is the Mafia. I don’t wish to meet you at the mortuary of the hospital next time.”
Cheng Anya was stunned into silence.
Was that her best friend who had been friends with her for seven years? She was Cheng Anya’s only best friend in life. Wasn’t she too cruel?
Mortuary? She’s really going to curse her.
In her whole life, Cheng Anya was first lucky enough to throw herself at Third Young Master Ye in the bar and gave birth to Ning Ning. She was lucky enough the second time to have fought with Li Yun in her high school’s library in England. Ever since, they became close friends.
After seven years of friendship, Miss Cheng even said that if she couldn’t find a man, she would spend her whole life with Miss Li.
Although the consequence was that Miss Li kicked her off and despised her for carrying a burden around.
But she treated that burden like her own son.
Hence, it could be seen how strong the friendship between the two women was.
Usually, Cheng Anya would not hide anything from Li Yun, but she was not clear about the matter at the moment as Third Young Master Ye hadn’t had time to tell Cheng Anya about it. Hence, she was also clueless and only knew that she had to believe in him.
After all, she had chosen the man herself. She had to trust his abilities in order to prove her own taste.
Therefore, she could not tell Li Yun anything in detail.
“Sister, aren’t you cruel? What mortuary? Are you cursing me?” Cheng Anya threw herself on the big bed, pulled the quilt over her head, and pretended to sigh. “Xiao Yun, I’m jobless now. Please treat me to a meal if you have time.”
“Eat your head. I have already treated you a thousand-yuan meal yesterday. No way.” Li Yun refused. Cheng Anya was not only a money face but also a freeloader. She had to go to a restaurant with elegant style if Li Yun was going to treat her. Furthermore, she didn’t order delicious food, only the expensive ones.
It was Miss Cheng’s turn to treat her. She would definitely invite Li Yun to eat a bowl of Guilin rice noodles and settle it under ten yuan. Didn’t she have the greatest personality ever? Li Yun hadn’t met this kind of person after meeting so many people in her whole life.
Despite it, she still liked Miss Cheng. That being said, many people are cheap.
This was what Miss Li Yun concluded about Miss Cheng in seven years.
“You’re right. I’m only a little bit more generous than you.” Li Yun dissed her coolly. “Hey, I feel that it would not be safe staying with your man now. Do you want to hide for a couple of days?”
“Hide at your place?”
“Don’t burden me. I don’t know you.” Li Yun quickly refused. She was not going to take in a time bomb. After a pause, she added, “Isn’t there an old saying in China that says husband and wife are forest birds that fly in different directions when faced with imminent disaster? Besides, you are still not husband and wife yet. Cherish your life. The Mafia could just take your life with a bullet.”
Cheng Anya, “…Xiao Yun, Gu Zhensheng would dump you if he heard what you had just said.”
“What do you mean? Don’t worry. This was what Gu Zhensheng told me.”
Cheng Anya was stunned into silence.
