100m Yuan Wife: Buy One Get One - Chapter 326
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
With Louis’ retreat, the business scene in City A was refreshed. Save the Yang family in the south, the Ye, Lin, and Tang families formed a new commercial empire that could not be shaken.
This was atypical, considering that the four families used to mind their own business. With Superintendent Lin Feng working on a smuggling case at the docks that implicated Third Young Master Ye, the latter was let off as there was insufficient information to tie him to the case. News, however, spread around City A.
As Long Fei was also at the scene, such a massive munitions destruction exercise left those keen-eyed aware of what clearly happened. This strengthened Third Young Master Ye and Fourth Young Master Tang’s relationship. Along with the Lin family in the north of the city, they formed a massive commercial empire.
City A was untouchable.
Ever since the Repulse Bay project collapsed, MBS International, in spite of Louis’ presence, was in no shape to keep up the fight against Fourth Young Master Tang and company. Through capital operations, they viciously suppressed MBS International’s stock prices and caused its stock prices to plummet. Their move sounded the death-kneel for MBS International.
As Third Young Master Ye began his hostile takeover of MBS International when its stock prices were at its lowest, he eventually became MBS International’s largest shareholder. With Ye Zhenhua forced to hand over MBS International, Third Young Master Ye completely robbed him of his life’s work.
As Ye Zhenhua’s blood pressure spiked whilst he coughed blood, the doctor forbade him from being emotionally affected and ordered him to take care of himself. On the day Ye Zhenhua had to hand over MBS International, Third Young Master Ye made a deliberate visit to the hospital to visit Ye Zhenhua.
He had aged substantially, and his razor-sharp gaze seemed slightly stupefied. Nobody could associate this person who was in a daze to the Ye Zhenhua who once ruled the marketplace. Like all other elderly, he was not the slightest overbearing as a deathly coldness hung over him.
While it was extremely painful for an old person to lose all he had in his old age, Third Young Master Ye was not the slightest sympathetic toward him.
Ye Zhenhua deserved it.
“What are you doing here? F*** off! F*** off!!” Ye Zhenhua roared. Third Young Master Ye was like a plague. He could not wait for him to disappear. Third Young Master Ye, as though watching a lunatic go berserk, coldly smiled at Ye Zhenhua.
He recalled the days that he brimmed with confidence, carrying a press conference for Louis and pulling strings to prop up Louis. He was so confident and happy that he was able to drive the son he most detested out of MBS International.
He was, today, a joke! His illness stemming from anger aside, his most pleased son could not be bothered with him. Was this the outcome wanted? Third Young Master Ye coldly smiled as he looked at Ye Zhenhua. “Good thing you are still alive. Watch as those around you gradually betray you.”
Ye Yutang was paralyzed whilst Louis had thrown everything behind and left. As for Ruan Cuiyu, he received the latest news that Ruan Cuiyu had taken away all of Old Master Ye’s savings, the young Ye Yutong in tow.
“Third young master, spare him. Old Master has had enough,” Chen De’s gently said. He had always stayed out of the feuding father and son’s affairs and did his dues.
With things as they were, he was the only person who faithfully stayed by Ye Zhenhua. Would Ye Zhenhua, knowing that Chen De was Lin Xiaoyue’s husband, get so angry to the point of an aneurysm? Third Young Master Ye evilly thought.
As his gaze landed on Chen De’s old yet merciful face, Third Young Master Ye coldly harrumphed. “Uncle Chen, please leave the room for now. There are some things I would like to tell him in person.” There was some gentleness in his voice.
As Chen De looked at that scorned and insane Old Master Ye and then Third Young Master Ye, he sighed and left the ward.
“F*** off!” Ye Zhenhua roared in madness. In Third Young Master Ye’s eyes, he was merely a paper tiger.
“What tantrum are you throwing? To have half a foot in the coffin and still want to take me on, you must want me to put you out of your misery, no?” Third Young Master Ye coldly smiled as he scooted up to Ye Zhenhua. “How does it feel? At ease? You deserve to see your life’s work shatter!”
“Ye Chen, how vicious of you!” Ye Zhenhua coldly smiled. Whoever was more vicious would get to call the shots in the world.
Third Young Master Ye’s moves were quick, vicious, and lethal, and clearly, nobody had his means and charisma. MBS International’s quick destruction and Louis’ desertion of him and the Ye family were both things that he unexpected.
“Had I known this would happen, I should have had the good men at the Rose Hall kill you!” Ye Zhenhua said sinisterly. Had he been a bit more vicious those years ago and pushed Third Young Master Ye to his death, he would not be in the misery he was currently in.
With MBS International’s collapse, he regretted his previous mistake.
Laying up trouble for the future was his first miscalculation!
“So it was you!!” Third Young Master Ye clenched his fists tightly as he recalled the inhumane torture he experienced those years ago. As the hatred rose from within him, his veins throbbed. He wished he could simply smash Ye Zhenhua’s skull.
He was simply not fit to be a father.
“What’s there to hate? If it weren’t for me, you would have died in America long ago. Did you really think that the Tang family could have hidden you?” Ye Zhenhua coldly smiled.
He recalled the video from years ago of a bloodied Third Young Master Ye holding a knife and hacking people for all his dear life. His blood-tainted gaze was exceptionally vicious, bright, and tough. He thus had a wrong impression that this child would carry his legacy on.
This was because they were exceptionally similar in their youth.
That very gaze was the reason he relented toward Third Young Master Ye that very once and spared him. He did not expect that very action to lead to today’s foregone conclusion.
He hated the fact that he should have let him die in America!
“It’s a pity that you did not succeed. I survived and you took everything away from me. Now that the tables have turned, it’s time for you to pay back. Ye Zhenhua, why don’t you have a taste of what living hell is?” Third Young Master Ye coldly smiled without emotion.
Ye Zhenhua had already tasted it. MBS International was everything to him. To men, their own prestige and interests always came first. Ye Zhenhua was nothing without MBS International.
While he hated Third Young Master Ye to the core, he had lost the meaning of living but could not do anything about it.
“Don’t be too smug. Ye Chen, you will have a more terrible and scornful ending than me someday. Louis… Yukun will teach you what it means to be stuck in living hell. You will not be able to beat him.” Ye Zhenhua coldly smiled.
“Are you saying you can trust a son who forsook you? Haha…” Third Young Master Ye laughed arrogantly. “Since he knows he can’t beat me openly, he escaped. Do you think that he could win against me by playing dirty?”
“He has, for a start, your weakest link.” Ye Zhenhua laughed and mocked him. “He’s got you in a stranglehold and you’re not going anywhere.”
Louis had called him long ago and told him his plans. Although his son forsook his father’s work, Ye Zhenhua, however, believed that Louis would be able to run Ye Chen into ruin and give him a living hell.
Cheng Anya was Third Young Master Ye’s Achilles’ heel. Ye Yukun, with that, would be able to keep him in check.
“You know where Louis is?” Third Young Master Ye’s countenance grew darker.
Looking and sounding cold, Third Young Master Ye’s gaze became even darker and sinister. Ever since Louis left, he was unable to locate Cheng Anya and Ning Ning despite pulling all strings he could. The past few days almost drove him mad.
With no sign of them in the base camp in Italy, and the inability of the Dragon Gate’s massive network to gather the slightest information about them, Mo Ye and Mo Jue—Louis’ henchmen —sure hid them extremely well.
He, despite using Ning Ning’s system, did not yield any information on them.
He was really about to be driven mad!
Cheng Anya, Ning Ning, Ye Wei, and Eleven all went missing. Ning Ning’s system, which allowed people to be tracked on a first-name basis through the First Terrorist Organization’s satellite system, did not yield the slightest bit of information.
Third Young Master Ye was extremely worried.
“Why are you telling me this?” Ye Zhenhua mocked him. “Panicking? At a loss? How long can you act tough? Ye Yukun will eventually screw you over.”
“Ye Zhenhua, will you be indifferent if I kill Ye Yutong and Ye Yutang?” Third Young Master Ye coldly threatened him. “Don’t you dare screw them over. They are your brothers!” Ye Zhenhua’s face changed.
“Brothers? Murdering my father and siblings gives me joy.” Third Young Master Ye coldly smiled. As he saw Ye Zhenhua’s panicked look, he knew that Ye Zhenhua was merely provoking him with fake information.
Given how Louis was, he would not leave behind information for others to leverage on.
“Humph, I can’t believe that woman is so important to you. Ye Chen, to think that you can still have a woman and children despite experiencing what happened seventeen years ago, I am impressed. I didn’t expect you to be so dirty…”
“You shut the f*** up!” Third Young Master Ye grabbed Ye Zhenhua by his patient gown and landed a vicious punch on his face. He punched with a force that knocked Ye Zhenhua away and against the television in the ward. With a splat, the screen of the television broke. Ye Zhenhua’s skull knocked against the table corner and bounded back like a ragdoll. Blood flowed out from his head.
Ye Zhenhua’s eyes went black and his two front teeth were knocked out.
Mixed with blood and saliva.
When Chen De heard the commotion, he immediately came in and was shocked. Third Young Master Ye elegantly flexed his shoulders and coldly smiled. “Please do not have the impression that I do not wallop my old man. I have tolerated you for a long time!”
The virtues of respect were, in Third Young Master Ye’s mind, outlandish. He did not know what filial piety meant, and Ye Zhenhua was also unworthy of his filial piety.
He had held back for so long to the point of hurting inside.
Ignoring the chaos in the ward, Third Young Master Ye strode out of the ward as it had all been a waste of time. He still thought that there was the slightest hope.
“Third Young Master Ye, we have news.” Black Eagle rushed over and passed the latest information to Third Young Master Ye as he strode out of the hospital. “The plane that Louis took off on that night returned to Europe via the Middle East.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes. Although there were eighteen probable routes, this route was the most accurate given the information analyzed. The other routes were decoys,” Black Eagle said flatly.
Although Third Young Master Ye had yet to have a wink in the past few days, he still did not seem tired as he continued to locate Cheng Anya and Cheng Ningyuan day and night.
“Very good. Keep it up. I want an exact location,” Third Young Master Ye said deeply. With a bit of progress in these few days, he was a lot more at ease.
Dear Anya and darling baby, wait for me.
I will find you.
“Third Young Master, there is something you need to be mentally prepared for. Your wife and your child are not together,” Black Eagle said after hesitating a little.
“What do you mean?”
“Your wife was the only person aboard Louis’ place. Your child was not.”
“Get to the bottom of it regardless of the cost and means. Contact Chu Li. He might have a way out.”
Third Young Master Ye got into the car and the car headed toward MBS International’s building.
With the press conference to introduce the company scheduled today, all the television stations gathered on the ground floor of the MBS International building. Following a series of reorganizations, MBS International returned to Third Young Master Ye’s hands.
This was, however, no longer MBS International.
Third Young Master Ye announced that MBS International, from today onward, should be called An Ning International. The building was also renamed to An Ning International’s building.
This meant what used to be MBS International would be completely reorganized.
As the president and CEO of An Ning International, those who had previously left all returned. An Ning International was thus officially opened for business.
With the successful news conference, An Ning International’s rise amidst an explosive commercial war that implicated corporations in City A signified a new era of stability in City A’s economy.
With regard to An Ning International’s operations, the media posed many questions about the after-effects of the Repulse Bay project and its subsequent funding—all of which were politely answered by Third Young Master Ye.
Some asked whether An Ning International would focus on the three industries of real estate, media, and jewelry, and these questions were also answered by Third Young Master Ye.
Instead of his previous arrogance, Third Young Master Ye was gentlemanly and polite at the scene.
“President Ye, why did you settle on An Ning International when you renamed the company? Is there any significance in the name?” A female reporter from GK International Media asked with a smile.
“An Ning is the portmanteau of the two people that I, Ye Chen, deeply love in my life—my wife and my son. I hope that I can be like this portmanteau of their names, forever peaceful. They are not only the pillars of my career but also my emotional pillars. By naming my career after them, I hope to make clear this special place they have in my heart.”
“With MBS International entering the history books, its time has passed. From today, there shall not be MBS International but An Ning International instead.”
“I will fight for An Ning International my whole life whilst also providing for my wife and child, for they are everything to me.”
“Anya, I know that you are very strong. Hang in there for me. I will find you soon. Ning Ning, I know that you are very smart. If you are around your mommy, protect her. If she isn’t around you, stay safe. Daddy promises to bring you all home.”
“Wherever you are, whatever you are going through, I will always be with you. I will, one day, bring you home and tell you all from where I am that you are everything to me. You are my everything.”
