100m Yuan Wife: Buy One Get One - Chapter 324
As the sea breeze blew, it rustled his gold hair that starkly contrasted the melancholic smile on his face. Although his face seemed a tad gentler, there was no happiness in his gaze. A closer look, however, revealed a bitter coldness.
That was a sinister coldness that emanated from within him.
As fear gripped Cheng Anya’s heart, her gaze suddenly grew wide and she was almost shocked unconscious. With all her discomfort dispelled, she felt fear and rage. As she recalled how vicious and twisted Louis could get, chances were that her son would meet with a mishap had he ended up in Louis’ hands. Cheng Anya’s body trembled uncontrollably and she suddenly stood up and pounced onto Louis. As she was about to pounce onto him, Louis deftly avoided her.
With a wobble, Cheng Anya fell onto the white beach.
As Louis admired Cheng Anya’s fear, he became even more pleased. “Your son is still alive—for now.” He smiled.
With her eyes bloodshot from anger, Cheng Anya’s gaze was unsteady. Although her eyes were slightly reddened earlier, she gradually recovered from the shock-inducing nervousness. Ning Ning was thankfully fine. As long as her child was fine, she would find a way to survive.
Her child was not somebody who would accept his fate.
“Panicking, huh?” Louis smiled lazily. “I almost thought that my dear Anya wouldn’t be fazed, but I stand corrected.”
A child was all it took to send her into a massive panic.
As Cheng Anya propped herself up, she did not fall and quickly recovered her calm. “Louis, look at how pathetic you are. You’ve lived your whole life lonely, neither loving nor loved.” She mocked him.
Some people are just that pathetic—living a life obliviously, not knowing why they had lived, and dying without understanding this world.
Neither were they understood by the world.
They were trapped in a pathetic cycle of endless revenge.
As the sun shone down, Louis’ gold hair glinted whilst his face was silhouetted by his hair’s shadow.
Louis, still looking like a melancholic prince, did not seem fazed by Cheng Anya’s words. Whether the world abandoned him or otherwise, it did not matter. Louis’ worldview was thoroughly twisted.
His persistence wiped out his remaining humanity. To put it differently, he never had an ounce of humanity in him.
Since Cheng Anya was captured by him, she never expected Louis to let go of her. As she looked at him without fear, she hoped that Ah Chen would be calm enough and not do anything rash. With Ning Ning and her in Louis’ hands, Third Young Master Ye would naturally swing to the other extreme.
While Louis was clearly prepared, Ah Chen was caught off guard and did not expect things to take such a twist. What started as a fair match between the two had gone south, and she did not want Third Young Master Ye to walk into a trap.
“Anya, there are times that glib tongue of yours tempts me to cut it off,” Louis said gently but could not conceal his viciousness. His gentle look seemed extremely intimidating. At that moment, Cheng Anya felt that he would really cut her tongue off.
Hence, she did not talk back to him.
Having an acute situational awareness was Cheng Anya’s strength, and she felt that she was putting this strength to good use at all times. Although she knew that her opponent had an advantage against her, she still provoked them on their turf. That was clearly not the wisest thing she could do.
As she looked around, the azure sky met the waters whilst clouds drifted and lush trees swayed on the clean beach. This was clearly a wonderful place to have a vacation on.
It was a pity that she was now imprisoned on the island.
By turning this island into a dungeon, Louis had her properly trapped on it. Even if she were in perfect shape, she would still face immeasurable problems escaping the island. She suddenly thought of a serious problem.
She and Louis couldn’t be the only people on the island, no? After covering this much of the island, everywhere she went seemed empty and nobody else seemed to be around. It seemed especially scary. She almost thought she was marooned on this grand yet desolate island.
When she thought about being alone with Louis on this island, Cheng Anya felt her fingertips shudder. It was a fear of loneliness and Louis had made clear his admiration of her. Without Third Young Master Ye in the way, she was his prisoner. She could not stop him from having his way.
As a few images flashed through her mind, along with Louis’ twisted character and desires, Cheng Anya really wished that her leg had an immeasurable strength so that she could run as far from him as she could.
She was, in her current state, weak.
“Be a good girl and don’t pull off any stunts.” Louis knelt down in front of Cheng Anya and smiled sinisterly. His emerald eyes reflected a fear that Cheng Anya could not feign. “If you disobey, I will torture your son to death.” He punctuated his words.
“You dare!” Cheng Anya panicked. If the person in question who was tortured was Third Young Master Ye, she could still force herself to remain calm. When it came to Ning Ning, Cheng Anya, however, panicked. While Ning Ning was smart, he was, nevertheless, still a child who needed time to make an escape. If a displeased Louis ordered Ning Ning to be killed, she would live in regret.
“You want to try me?” Louis coldly smiled as he ran his finger across Cheng Anya’s chin. While he seemed to enjoy that feeling, his gaze became deeper and his smile became even more cryptic with hidden hints of desire and lust. “Third Young Master Ye sure is a lucky man to have you. Look at this skin that’s tenderer than a child’s. Anya, I have tried to convince you to come with me or you will live to regret it. So, have you learned your lesson?”
With Louis’ questions sending her into a flurry of panic, Cheng Anya tried to avoid the hidden implications of his statement and could not be bothered about it. “Where is my son? Is he on this island?” Cheng Anya asked as Louis gripped her chin.
“Do you think that I am sufficiently dumb to allow the two of you to be together?” Louis’ snigger then broke into maniacal laughter. “Hahaha… Third Young Master Ye, you are not going to escape my grasp in your lifetime.”
When one is in such a position in life, they could not afford to have weaknesses that people could attack them at. Having one’s weakness probed could be fatal, and Third Young Master Ye’s biggest weaknesses were Cheng Anya and Cheng Ningyuan. Once somebody had hold of them, he would not be able to even fight back.
“Louis, leave him the f*** alone. I’ll obey,” Cheng Anya said slowly. As long as she was able to buy her son time, Ning Ning would definitely think of a way to escape.
With no other way out, she could only delay Louis’ actions on him. That was the only thing she could do for Ning Ning.
Even if that meant death, she was willing to do so.
“It seems like you really care about that little chap. So what’s up with your missing glib tongue? Keep the insults coming, and boy, I sure love to hear you insult people. It turns me on.” Louis chuckled, his chuckling betraying a hint of madness.
As his scent drifted past Cheng Anya’s nose, she couldn’t help but hate him to the core.
His twistedness was over the top!
With no apple from the Ye family normal, Louis’ twistedness was over the top.
Although Ning Ning was still Louis’ nephew by blood, she was not stupid enough to preach the depths of kinship to Louis, which was an utter load of bull anyway. Had Ah Chen understood that saying, his ten-over years wouldn’t have been that miserable.
“Oh? You are willing to do anything?” Louis gently smiled as his gaze darkened. He ran his slender fingers down Cheng Anya’s chin and then up her tender neck. As his cold fingers contrasted against her warm skin, which was due to the blazing sun, the temperature difference caused Cheng Anya’s goose bumps to stand. She suddenly felt a sense of danger.
Was he trying to… violate her?
It was nothing too surprising. Wasn’t this Louis’ very intention? He had, from the very beginning, made his desire for her known. Whilst Cheng Anya raged at that thought, she was unable to resist.
She had always thought that having sufficient courage and never giving up despite the harshness of the circumstances was a guarantee of survival, however slim it was.
While she had always done that, she had learned today that there were also times that she was powerless to change anything. She also had her moments of helplessness and at the mercy of others. She could not spare a thought for others.
“Why are you trembling so hard?” Louis smiled and seemed somewhat pleased. He seemed to enjoy Cheng Anya’s fear and it pleased him to see her in such a state. “Aren’t you very strong? What’s with this fear, this trembling? Show your damn courage! I’m looking forward to it!”
As Cheng Anya was not somebody whom anybody could walk over, she tightly bit her lip and held herself back from slapping Louis. When she thought of her son’s tender face and him sweetly calling Daddy and Mommy, her raging anger was quickly suppressed.
At this moment, she could not afford to be willful. Louis in his rage could snuff out Ning Ning’s life. She had to endure the indignation, however bad it could get.
When Louis saw her go silent, he smiled even more sweetly and brazenly unbuttoned Cheng Anya’s shirt, revealing her rounded shoulders, tender skin, and delicate scapula.
Her bustline was somewhat emphasized.
Unable to bear it anymore, Cheng Anya coldly smiled and slapped Louis’ hand away. “Keep your hands away. I’ll do it myself, and do have your way with me.” She coldly smiled as she removed her shirt.
With Cheng Anya taking off her own shirt, Louis was slightly taken aback. She, only in her bra, showed her slender physique and pale skin in their full glory whilst her pale face wore a gentle sheen on it thanks to the sun. Like a plum flower about to face the winter, she defiantly blossomed as she gritted her teeth, gently trembling in fear and hatred.
While everybody had something they would defend to the end, there were times even these had to be let go.
Since she knew that escape was impossible, enduring his mind-screwing talk was unnecessary.
Being insulted and outraged was only a matter of time.
That being the case, expediting it had its merits too!
In her heart, Cheng Anya promised Third Young Master Ye that he was the only man in her life and she would not eye or get involved with any other men. Today, she learned that some things, even if promised…
Could not be kept despite giving all she could.
She hated her helplessness!
