After he took a shower and dried his hair, An Xunuo’s eyes were still open, staring at the ceiling, and did not seem the slightest sleepy at all. Ye Ningyuan lifted the blankets and cuddled her. “What’s keeping you awake?”
“I dislike Daddy,” An Xunuo gently said as she looked at him steely with a few hints of aggravation.
“How is Daddy bad?”
“Because Daddy left me, the bad people had a chance to bully me.”
Ye Ningyuan was taken aback and hugged her tightly. “I’m sorry. This will not happen again.”
Green Dragon called to report he had settled everything. Ye Ningyuan acknowledged without saying anything else and ended the call. He got into a more comfortable sleeping position so that An Xunuo could sleep more comfortably.
As she did not feel sleepy, her beady eyes were wide open. Her small hands played with his hands. She simply would not obey him and go to sleep. He allowed her to have her way and would answer her whenever she asked.
She was a child at heart, and it would be a matter of time before she could not recall what happened tonight.
He would never know whether she was really bullied. As Xunuo was muddleheaded, she did not know anything. He had just helped her shower, and he wanted to check her body. However, she was a female, and they were neither married nor in love. Although he had seen her naked, it was not the most polite thing to do.
Even if he asked her, chances were she would not understand what he was asking.
He only felt heartache. Whether she was indeed bullied before, all that happened tonight was his fault. His heart ached as he wholly accepted Xunuo’s accusations.
He could only hope that she quickly forgot everything.
And stop remembering all these unhappy things.
“Daddy, what should I do if I can’t fall asleep?”
“Something on your mind?”
“I’m afraid I killed somebody,” An Xunuo said softly and gently as though she were an animal softly calling out. “It’s wrong to kill somebody. Will I be arrested and thrown into jail?”
“You will not!” Ye Ningyuan said with certainty.
“Why?” She seemed lost.
She clearly killed somebody, no? She knew that murderers have to go to jail. She did not know why she thought of killing somebody that very moment, but there was a voice inside her that went, ‘Kill them. Kill them. They are bad.’
She, in her impulse, shattered the beer bottle and stabbed them to death.
They bullied her.
“Xunuo did not kill anybody. Daddy killed them.” Ye Ningyuan cupped her face and gently said, “You just wounded them, and it was Daddy who killed them. How could you go to jail then?”
“No. Daddy is lying. I clearly killed them, and I am no fool.” An Xunuo insisted. “I would rather be arrested than allow them to arrest Daddy.”
“What a good girl. Go to sleep, okay? Let Daddy see to it. All will be fine.”
“Will Daddy still leave me for another woman in the future?” An Xunuo was especially uptight about this question, and even more so than being bullied by bad people. She looked at him nervously.
“Never,” Ye Ningyuan said. “Never again.”
When he allowed her to leave, he regretted doing so. Unless she had completely recovered and regained her memory, he would take very good care of her and never let her go. He could not bear to!
An Xunuo, who was at ease, leaned on his shoulders and gradually fell asleep.
He adjusted the lighting in the room and dimmed them. As he was afraid that Xunuo would have nightmares, he did not leave and instead hugged her to sleep. Miraculously, she slept soundly throughout the whole night.
The newspapers the next morning reported the murder last night. Green Dragon managed to tie all loose ends and left no evidence behind. As the crime was committed near a red light district, there was nary a commotion since people died in the area almost every day. Considering bloodshed was frequent and common, law enforcement was not particularly startled by it.
Ye Ningyuan threw the newspapers away and got down to work. He did not expect Green Dragon to report a moment later that Ye Wei had arrived with Mo Wushuang and Ye Hailan. He smiled at how quick they were. Bai Ye and Su Man were also estimated to reach in these two days.
“Elder brother…” Ye Hailan went up the stairs and leaped into his embrace, kissing his face in adoration. “Dear elder brother, you are becoming more and more handsome. Mmhmm…”
“How sweet-talking of you.”
“What nonsense! I’m praising you!”
Mo Wushuang knocked on the door and entered with a smile. “Morning, cousin!”
“Wushuang, it has been quite a while!”
A ten-year-old girl in a white shirt and black trousers which had a long steel chain around its waist stood at the door. Her very simple attire seemed especially cool. She had black hair, purple eyes, pale skin, and a lively demeanor. Her purple eyes were like Mo Jue’s, but she looked more like Ye Wei. She was a few months older than Ye Feimo but much taller than Ye Hailan and Ye Feimo.
“Cousin, where’s my little niece?” Mo Wushuang asked with a smile as she wanted her niece to call her auntie. Ye Hailan, who was in his embrace, was as cheerful. Ye Ningyuan had a headache.
Ye Ningyuan suddenly heard a shriek. He frowned and quickly put down Ye Hailan before dashing toward the bedroom. Ye Hailan and Mo Wushuang gave each other a funny face and happily followed.
Carrying her blanket, An Xunuo shrunk into a corner as she looked at Ye Wei, who suddenly appeared. Although Ye Wei had a friendly and alluring smile, An Xunuo still did not let her defense down.
“Huh, why do you look so familiar?” Ye Wei was puzzled as she stroked An Xunuo’s chin and looked left and right. “F*** off!” An Xunuo suddenly swatted her hand away and said coldly.
Ye Wei smiled before pinching An Xunuo’s chin and asked, “An Xunuo, you really look like that lass. You’ve vibes like Xu Xing, and it’s little wonder…”
An Xunuo was wearing Ye Ningyuan’s sleepwear. It was too big on her and she could naturally see the red spots on her. She was naturally misled. An Xunuo calmed herself down and coldly asked, “Who are you?”
“Auntie…” Ye Ningyuan quickly stepped in. Ye Wei waved her hands and greeted him. “Hi, darling, I’m here to see your darling.”
“Sister Xunuo…” Ye Hailan leaped forth and somewhat felt that she was a little different. “Huh…”
Before she could speak, An Xunuo had pushed her away and quickly crawled up and leaped next to Ye Ningyuan barefooted, avoiding them as though they were the plague. Ye Ningyuan tapped her shoulders lovingly.
“Sister Xunuo, you don’t recognize me?” Ye Hailan asked.
An Xunuo shook her head.
Mo Wushuang stroked her chin and said, “Cousin’s sleepwear, cousin’s room, and all those love bites… Aye, what a licentious father-daughter relationship you have there.”
