As Ye Wei and Eleven tugged on the threads that trapped Blue Wolf, they heard the sound of fighter jets and yachts approaching. They paused and inevitably loosened their grip. Blue Wolf, leveraging on this very moment, broke free from Ye Wei and Eleven’s threads.
When the two of them regained their senses, Blue Wolf greeted them with a double-palm attack with Ye Wei and Eleven intercepting his attack. Little did they expect Blue Wolf to pull off a ruse and release a smoke grenade in front of them. As Blue Wolf was a master of poisons, Ye Wei and Eleven were afraid he had released poisonous gas and immediately scattered.
Ye Wei’s first reaction was to pinch Mo Jue’s nose, and only let go when Eleven said that the smoke was not poisonous. Once the smoke cleared, Blue Wolf was nowhere to be seen.
Eleven was fuming.
Ye Wei landed a punch on the tree trunk. “F*** this damn shit. That wastrel escaped!”
Suddenly, the young kid’s scream reverberated across the entire cliff. Ye Wei and Eleven were shocked. As they were very far away, what they had heard were echoes. The reverberating echoes were exceptionally chilling.
As Ye Wei quickly moved in the direction of the echo, Eleven followed up as quickly as lightning. Mo Jue, with a neutral face, also caught up.
Ye Wei’s heart was knotted, and she suddenly heard a sharp whistle. When Ye Wei and Eleven knew that Chu Li was giving the command, their hearts were extremely happy. They quickly passed through the woods and up the cliff. The sounds of yachts speeding by gradually died down.
On Death Island, another bloodbath began. As Bai Ye commanded the battle, two of the most advanced fighter jets dropped close to ten bombs on the surface of the ocean and the islands. As explosions bloomed, the island shook and seemed as though it was about to sink.
Aerial combat with a top terrorist in command was intense. From the cliff, one could see missiles fall whilst rubble lined the ground as explosions lit up the sky and created plumes of terrible mushroom clouds.
Ye Wei could not be bothered with the battle unfolding below. She rushed up the cliff to see a few people gathered at a side. One of them standing was the person she was most familiar with. “Chu Li.”
Chu Li turned back. He was a handsome man, not as attractively beautiful as Mo Jue or had features as delicate as Third Young Master Ye’s. Instead, he had a steady handsomeness, the workings of a commander, that were not openly shown.
“Wei Wei, Eleven…” He frowned a little. “Who is he?”
“My own,” Ye Wei calmly said as Mo Jue smiled sweetly. Chu Li frowned even more. He had a very deep impression of Mo Ye’s face as the young kid had sent him Mo Ye’s photos. This person, however, had purple eyes.
Since Ye Wei said he was her own, he did not say much either. Outsiders could not ask as they wished.
Ye Wei pushed away the people gawking on and saw the young kid lying on the ground with a pale face and blue lips. Somebody was digging a bullet out of his elbow and carefully bandaging him.
“What’s going on?” Ye Wei asked in a deep voice. Was he just hit?
Where was Xu Nuo?
Eleven coldly raised her eyebrows and both of them looked at Chu Li. The Asian branch’s head’s eyes were reddened. He said through gritted teeth, “Xu Nuo fell off the cliff.”
“What did you say?” Ye Wei, Eleven, and Mo Jue quickly rushed toward the cliffside. Mo Jue’s eyes were wide open and he turned around, about to rush down the cliff to look for and save them. Ye Wei grabbed him and said, “Marshmallow, hold it right there.”
As the cliff was extremely tall with jagged rocks at the foot of the cliff, the odds of her surviving the fall unprepared were extremely slim.
“Speak clearly.” Ye Wei looked at the Asian branch’s head. He retold what happened with reddened eyes, and even a hardened man like him could not help but tear. There was silence on the cliff.
Ye Wei was jolted. This tough little girl, that one in a million, had taken a liking to Ning Ning. While she saw that from a long while ago, that little girl was a tough-talker who did not admit it. What they did not expect was how she had, despite not admitting her liking, used her actions to prove it.
To use her life out of her love for another person.
The final few shots she took for Ning Ning, and the final sacrifice as she took out her enemy with her for Ning Ning… Xu Nuo most likely knew she would not survive, and hence…
As this all happened before Ning Ning, the shock and impact it had on him were immeasurable.
How lucky her nephew was to meet such a lady at such a young age. It was also extremely unfortunate that their paths did not cross for long and he was not fortunate enough to enjoy Xu Nuo’s company for the rest of his life.
As yachts roared past the ocean surface, Ye Wei’s gaze grew cold. Chu Li grabbed her elbow and shook her head. Ye Wei gritted her teeth and nodded. Chu Li ordered a person to fly an aircraft over to transfer everybody onto the aircraft.
The people whom Xu Nuo and Ning Ning had saved—sans the dead and wounded—totaled about seven to eight of them. The second-in-command of the Asian branch died in battle, as well as two others. There was only one person left alive.
Chu Li, without saying anything, had them board another helicopter.
“Bai Ye, level the island!” Chu Li gave the command in a deep, hardened and domineering voice.
Bai Ye smiled and pushed a button. The fighter dropped an air-to-ground missile. At almost the same time, one of the vessels on the ocean launched a surface-to-air missile. The two missiles flew toward their respective targets.
Bai Ye commanded the fighters to evade, and after the missile failed to reach its target, Chu Li plotted an accurate flight path. The fighter released another bomb. As both met in mid-air, there was a beautiful explosion.
The explosion reddened half the sky, and the aircraft became a lot bumpier due to the turbulence from the explosion.
With Death Island almost destroyed and the large buildings leveled, large areas of forests burned in a fiery red.
“Pull back!” Bai Ye ordered his men to retreat.
With an Italian garrison in the area, there were too many of them and came too quickly. They were not waiting to get into trouble.
On the plane, Mo Jue lost his typical smile and looked at the surface of the ocean calmly. Ye Wei tapped his hand and Mo Jue turned back. He hugged Ye Wei, who was sad. “Nuo Nuo is dead.”
She sounded sad.
Mo Jue’s clear purple eyes were saddened. There was pain and indignation in his voice, and he did not hold back his tears.
“It’s okay. All will be fine.” Ye Wei also knew that Xu Nuo would not have made it and felt a sinking feeling in her heart. She was used to killing, and death meant nothing to her.
Xu Nuo, however, was Mo Jue’s younger sister and Ning Ning’s…
Chu Li looked at the two of them curiously and could not help but say,” Wei Wei, I didn’t know you have such good taste.”
Ye Wei turned back and stared at Chu Li as she released Mo Jue. She could not help but grab Chu Li’s collar and said, “Damn you, scheming Chu Li, how dare you say that. Are you as old as you can get? What took you so long? If you had been a bit quicker, Xu Nuo might not have died.”
Chu Li said, in defense, “The signal that you launched was blocked. When I received it, it was much later after you had sent it. To be able to mobilize these men in such a short time is the best I could do.”
How could that cute little idiot be so well-treated by such a fierce woman?
This was preferential treatment at its best.
“Got it! Please don’t tell me you arrived in time. I’ll wait to see how you explain that to Ning Ning later.” Ye Wei knew that she could not blame Chu Li, but she was too stressed to be nice to him.
Chu Li was long used to it.
Eleven, who was standing aside, coldly harrumphed. He remained silent. Normally, he, Bai Ye, Jason, and Black J could not afford to cross these two women. On the other side, the Asian branch’s head’s feelings were extremely mixed.
Although he hadn’t spent a lot of time with them, he really liked these two children.
Bai Ye knocked on the door panel twice and said, “Ning Ning’s awake. Do come over and take a look.”
Bai Ye was aggressively relaxed. Donning a white collared shirt and gym pants, he seemed to be distant from all. While he looked gentle, people who did not know him would only feel a vacuum surrounding him that distanced him from people.
At that moment, he had a glum look on his face.
Ye Wei and Chu Li quickly entered the cabin, and so did Eleven.
The young kid sat on the bed, his tender face stupefied and gaze hollow. As he grabbed his leg, his head propped against his knee. He did not speak a word and looked down at the mattress.
There was a terrifying pallor on his face.
His elegance, brilliance, and cunningness were all lost. He seemed to be devoid of life.
Ye Wei was shocked. “Ning Ning, auntie’s here. All is fine.”
While she initially did not know what was going on between the young kid and Xu Nuo, the Asian branch’s head telling her the conversation the children had on the way and the young kid’s reaction on the cliff screamed bad news to her.
Had she knew this would happen, she would rather Ning Ning not have feelings for Xu Nuo.
“Ning Ning, Xu Nuo is dead. We are all sad and sorry to hear about your loss.” While Eleven did not know how to console people, her cold tone softened. She had indeed taken a liking to Xu Nuo, that little girl.
“Ning Ning, Xu Nuo gave her life so that you would live. Don’t squander it, okay?” Ye Wei’s heart ached as she told him in a cold voice. The young kid did not have the slightest reaction.
His gaze remained hollow.
Chu Li, sitting by the bedside, reached out to hug the young kid. “Good child, what’s with the silence? Please do not scare us.”
Eleven and Ye Wei could tell that something was very off with him. According to the Asian branch’s head, Ning Ning wanted to protect Xu Nuo and take the bullets for her, but little Xu Nuo ended up dying for him.
Even adults, let alone children, could not withstand such emotions.
Chu Li lifted up the young kid’s face as they all looked at his eyes. There were threads of red in those pitch-black eyes that seemed lost. His already-pale face had a deathly pallor to it.
The bullet in his arm was long removed and the wound cleaned up.
“Ning Ning, say something.” Ye Wei was panicking. Chu Li could also tell that something was amiss, and everyone turned toward Bai Ye.
Bai Ye frowned and said, “He’s blind.”
“What do you mean by ‘blind’?” Chu Li and Ye Wei asked in unison.
“Simply put, Ning Ning has refused to see this world. No matter how good my medical skills are, I can’t cure a deep mental burden,” Bai Ye said and gently sighed. There was nothing he could do.
As everybody’s faces changed and looked at the young kid, there was blood in his pitch-black eyes. Only upon a closer look did it look much more terrifying.
Chu Li asked in a deep voice, “How long would it take him to recover?”
“That will depend on when we can return him a ‘Xu Nuo’,” Bai Ye said. A deep mental burden required a heartfelt cure. As a medical doctor, it was clearly beyond his means.
“How could this be possible?” Chu Li lamented. He saw the young girl take so many shots to her heart, not to mention falling off that tall cliff…
As they turned back and looked at Ning Ning’s unresponsive face, everyone instantly felt how thin the air beneath their noses had become.
It was unbearably suffocating.
They could not bear to see that face without life.
Just how grievous was that heartache which caused the tough young kid to totally close his heart…
