My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 222 Meet again. Venus saw Tianye (1)
“Tianye Mu, thank you for saving me.”
The smile on Tianye’ s face instantly disappeared, “No more thanks, OK?”
Xiran Xiao was startled, whose eyes were sore, and she wanted to cry again.
In the last few hours, she had cried more than the past twenty more years.
Tianye had never seen such a fragile Xiran before. He sat next to her and hugged her with one hand, “Okay, I shouldn’t be that harsh, but you’re not allowed to say ‘thank you’ to me in the future.”
Xiran nodded. The moment Tianye fell down, her heart stopped beating. Luckily, he was alive.
“Don’t cry, OK? Good girl.” Tianye rubbed her hair.
Xiran choked out, “I thought you wouldn’t wake up.”
“Silly girl, I won’t break my promise since I promise you that I will keep alive.” Tianye wiped away the tears from the corner of her eye with his finger, “Besides, I can’t leave you alone.”
She smiled, reaching out her hand to put around his waist and murmured, “Let’s go home tomorrow.” “Sure.”
The flowers she wanted to see were seen, so she was content. Tianye still had work to do and she couldn’t squander his time.
After staying at the inn for the night and recovering almost completely, the two took a flight back to Sky City the next day. Before going to the airport, Tianye found the young man who drove them to the clinic with a tricycle and gave him a generous payment. Although the young man said it was not a big deal, Tianye still put the money into his hands.
Tianye didn’t like to owe people, whether it was favor or money.
Except for Xiran, she was his woman, not anyone else.
Back to Sky City, Tianye first took Xiran to the hospital for a blood test to make sure there was no more venom in her body before he went to work.
It was cloudy and sultry.
After entering the re-match, Venus started to prepare the work for the second round. Because of Xiao Xie’ s death, Venus was in a low mood. She was too irritated to sit in the office, so she told her colleagues before going to the street.
She didn’t tell Kerry Ye, for if she did, she would definitely be followed by a bodyguard, which she wasn’t used to.
Strolling from one shop to another, it was pouring rain when she came out, so she then got into the dessert shop next to her.
Ordering a glass of juice and a cake, Venus turned her head away to look out the window.
It was raining hard. People on the street without umbrellas were running for a shelter. Suddenly, a familiar figure was in sight, who propped his suit on the head of the woman beside him and the two walked forward unhurriedly. The woman’s head was in the suit, so she couldn’t see it. However, Venus recognized the man immediately according to his shape.
She went blank, gazing at the man. When the man turned around and whispered to the woman, her heart seemed to stop beating for a second. It was her brother.
Without picking up her bag, she rushed out to run after that man.
It was raining hard outside, so as soon as she went out, Venus was drenched in the rain. The man she was staring at stepped onto the busy road.
The angry blowing of a car horn came, making Venus back to her senses. A car was rushing towards her through the rain and fog, so she took a few steps backwards, back onto the pavement. When she looked up again, the man who resembled her brother started a car parked on the side of the road, first escorting the woman into the car, and then walked around the front of the car to the driver’s seat.
Venus took a careful look this time. She will never forget her brother’s figure and shape in this life, and it was indeed her brother.
“Brother!” Venus shouted, but the sound of the rain and the oncoming cars were so loud that her voice had been drowned out.
“Brother!” Venus shouted again with all her strength, yet the man heard nothing, who opened the door and got into the car.
The headlights flashed twice, and Venus knew the car was leaving, so she anxiously tried to go cross the road, but as soon as she stepped into the driveway, she was blocked by the loud sound of the horns.
Venus watched the car start and leave. Now for her, it seemed that there were some ants in her pants. She ran after the car on the pavement and the passers-by all looked at her with puzzlement.
“Pa!” She didn’t step on the ground, so she fell hard into the rain. When she got up, the black car had already disappeared from sight.
Venus stood in a daze in the heavy rain for a moment, and then ran back at a gallop. Her bag was still at the dessert shop.
The owner thought she would eat without paying the moeny, but as soon as he saw that her bag was still there, he knew she would return. Sure enough, a few minutes later, Venus came back, wet all over.
Venus’s hands shivered as she took out her phone to call Kerry.
“Hello? Kerry, I saw my brother.” Venus’s cords were trembling.
Kerry froze for a second and asked her, “Where are you now? Where did you see him?”
“I’m at a dessert shop on Chenxi Road. Just now, I saw him and it must have been him.” Venus said in a firm and rather emotional tone, “He’s not dead. He’s alive.”
“Send me the location, I’ll come to you now.” Kerry hung up the phone without saying more.
Venus sent him a location and sat there, holding her phone before she came to her senses. Her brother really wasn’t dead.
God, what good news that was. It couldn’t be a dream, could it?
“Lady, dry yourself before you catch a cold.” The owner brought a new towel to her, and Venus said thank you. She was wiping the water from her face and arms as she recalled what she had just seen.
This dessert shop was two blocks away from Yehuang, so Kerry showed up immediately.
When he saw Venus who was in a mess, he looked astonished, “What happened?”
Venus’s eyes were like stars in the sky, grabbing Kerry’s hand and said, “I saw him. It’s him, I’m sure.”
Kerry turned around and asked the waiter for a cup of water and began to calm her down, “Take it easy. Tell me what you have seen, OK?”
Venus excitedly told Kerry everything that she had just seen.
“Did you see his face?” Kerry wondered.
“Yes, otherwise I won’t be so sure.” Venus spoke firmly.
“Have you seen the license plate number? And do you know what car it is?”
Venus shook her head, “It was pouring rain, so I couldn’t see the license plate, and after I fell down, the car drove far away.”
Kerry looked down at her knee and there was indeed a large red swelling. He asked with care, “Does it hurt?”
Venus smiled, “I feel nothing.”
Kerry knocked her forehead. She had completely forgotten her pain once she saw her brother.
But was that person really Tianye? Suddenly he recalled the big movements made by Mu’s Group during this period of time. If it was Tianye, then everything made sense.
Venus saw him frowning, thinking that he didn’t believe her, so she explaining, “I’m telling the truth, don’t you believe me?”
“No, of course I believe you, but,” Kerry paused and lowered his voice, “What I’m worried about is that since you were able to disguise as Yan Chu, could someone pretend to be Tianye? And if he’s back, why doesn’t he come to you?”
Venus stiffened, for what he said made sense. She calmed down, “Whether it’s true or no. If you can find him, I can tell he is my brother or not.”
Kerry nodded, “As long as he is in Sky City, I will find him. I promise.” But Kerry was a little worried. If it was Tianye, would he take Venus away again?
“Ah-choo!” A loud sneeze interrupted Kerry’s thought. He cradled Venus in his arms and blamed, “See, you’ve got a cold. “
Venus gave him a disgruntled glance, “What’s that look on your face? Do you want me to sit here while I see my brother?”
“Fine, I’m sorry. Go home and take a shower.”
Then, Kerry went to the traffic police station to get the surveillance of this road, but unfortunately, the rain was really too heavy, and only vague figures of man and woman could be seen. As for the license plate numbers, no clues could be got from it.
A villa in the eastern suburbs
Tianye hung up the subordinate’s phone and went to the gym. Xiran running on the treadmill.
“What’s going on? You look not so good.”
“Kerry is looking for me, Mu Tianye didn’t intend to hide it from her, “I don’t know how he knows it.”
Xiran felt it was not a big deal, “There should be quite a few people who know you in this city and it’s only a matter of time before he finds out. What are you worried about?”
“Nothing. It’s just that sometimes it’s easier to act in the dark.” Tianye wiped the sweat from her forehead and asked softly, “What do you want to eat? I’ll make it for you tonight.”
Xiran looked at him unexpectedly, “Don’t you know how to cook?”
“I can refer to the recipe.” Tianye was a little smug.
“Then please. I’ll eat whatever you cook.” Xiran had been running for half an hour, but her breath was still steady.
Tianye pinched her face and smiled, “I love you.”
Xiran lightly patted his hand off and said, “I love you, too.”
“Thank you, Your Highness.”
“Then go to cook for me.”
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 222 Meet again. Venus saw Tianye (2)
There’s still no more information about Tianye Mu, but Mu’s Group had taken up with Kerry Ye again.
Here was the thing. There was a large urban villages and shantytowns in the city’s urban-rural conjunctive region. After the earthquake, the former one could barely be lived in, but the shantytowns were almost flattened to the ground. Restoration of the old appearance was basically impossible, so the government made a big decision. The urban villages and shantytowns would all be built into affordable housing, some of which were marketable, others given to the residents according to the original size of their house.
Because of the national post-disaster reconstruction funds, as long as there were no problems with the project, earning 100 million was not a problem.
Kerry had invited the city leaders to dinner many times and had also sent many gifts. That’s why Yehuang Group could get this big project.
After getting the permission from Secretary Zhang, Kerry hurriedly came back to launch a meeting in the engineering department. He ordered them to come up with all possible plans within ten days.
Every staff of this department was rushing in the ten days, basically all of whom had made the company as their temporary accommodation. Finally, a perfect re-construction plan was born. The number of the households, the types, the facilities and so on were all showed on the design.
Though it was preordained, the process should be completed. On the day of the bidding, many companies had come there, though they were doomed to fail. But when Mike appeared with his team, Kerry had a hint of worry.
When the city’s construction department announced the winning company, Kerry’s face turned sullen, but he kept his grace to the end.
Once or twice could be a coincidence, but this was the third time. If he still believed it was an accident, then he would be a fucking fool.
Mike walked up to Kerry with a smile on his face, saying in crappy Chinese, “Mr. Ye, thank you.”
At this moment, Kerry really wanted to smash all the information at hand into this face, but he tried to remain polite and said, “Mu’s Group has done a lot in just one month. Can you handle all this?”
Mike, looking goofy, asked, “Are you kidding me? A lot? I don’t think so.”
Kerry was enraged, grabbing Mike by the collar and asked with a grim look, “Who is the man behind you? Tianye? If he’s not dead, why is he afraid to show up? What a coward.”
Mike widened his eyes in surprise and asked, “Tianye? Is he still alive?”
Kerry was furious, “Don’t act like an idiot. If he hasn’t come back, will you be able to make a decision on such a large amount of money?”
Mike didn’t want to answer him, “Mr. Ye, what the hell are you talking about? I can’t understand at all.”
Kerry stared at his blue eyes for a few seconds and let him go with a sneer, “Go back and tell him that if he wants to know something about his sister Venus Mu, just come to me like a man. Stop hiding.”
Mike shook his head and tsked, “Mr. Ye, I think you need to see a doctor. Maybe your delusion is too much.”
Kerry didn’t want to bullshit with him anymore and walked out in a huff.
“Mr. Ye, if my boss is still alive, when you find him, please tell him to hurry back to the company. We still have a lot of things waiting for him to make a decision.”
What responded to him was a loud slamming of the door.
Mike shrugged and smiled as he and a few of his colleagues headed out.
After hearing Mike’s massage from Kerry, Tianye shook his glass and said, “He’s using agitation to force me to show up. I want him to get impatient. The more impatient he gets, the more weaknesses he will expose. Then we will get more interests.”
“So, what are we going to do now?”
“Focus on the current projects. Make sure we win. I don’t want to see any mistake. Maintain the status quo.”
Xiran Xiao jumped onto the sofa with her glass of wine. After he hung up the phone, she asked, “Is the person I introduced you good?”
Tianye clinked his cup with her, “You really are my greatest treasure. He is far more than good. He completely defeats the power Kerry has behind the scene.”
“I’m just a broker. He admires you, so he wants to work for you.” This person that Xiran was talking about was the leader of the province.
The leader didn’t like to drink or beautiful women, but enjoyed venture. When he once was doing a rock climbing, he almost fell off the cliff and it was Xiran who encouraged and helped him. Finally, he reached the peak.
He then promised that if she had any difficulties in the future, she could come to him, and he might offer some help.
It was such a way to show his gratitude, but she did not expect that one day he could really help her. Tianye found out that he was very fond of calligraphy and painting, so he went back to the villa at night to look for Wang Xizhi’s work. Then Tianye sent it to him.
In this way, urban landscaping and affordable housing construction belonged to Tianye, which could really earn a lot.
Secretary Liu was standing in front of the president’s office with fear and trepidation. Inside, crackling sounds kept coming out. Kerry was venting his anger. In order not to hurt innocent people, several employees who came to report were all stopped by Secretary Liu.
Seeing Secretary Liu shaking his head, plus the noise inside, several vice presidents and directors all ran away. They were not stupid and they knew Kerry was now completely losing his temper.
It’s almost half an hour, but Kerry hadn’t stopped. Secretary Liu tragically thought that this afternoon he needed to buy more furniture for his boss. It was really exhausted.
Secretary Liu had no choice but call Yan Chu, “Miss Chu, I’m really sorry. Could you please come to the president’s office?”
“What’s going on?” Venus asked.
Secretary Liu was calm, but with a bit of trepidation, “In the morning, Mr. Ye went to bid. It’s originally said it would be Yehuang to get the project, but unexpectedly, the winner was Mu’ s Group. Mr. Ye is so furious that he breaks all the things in the office. And now he is still doing it. “
“Oh, I see. I’ll be there right away.”
A few minutes later, when Secretary Liu saw Venus, he breathed in relief, “Miss Chu, thank god you’re here.” Then they heard a “bang” sound. Something was broken again.
Venus sighed, nodding at Secretary Liu, and then knocked a few times on the door.
“Get out!” Kerry yelled in a harsh voice.
Venus said in a calm voice, “It’s me, I’m coming in.”
Pushing open the door, she saw a terrible mess inside. All kinds of waste were thrown all over the floor. The desk that was full of papers yesterday was now empty, while all the papers flew all over the floor, almost covering the floor. Even the computer was lying on the floor.
“Leave me alone. I’ll be fine later.” Kerry lay on his back on the chair and closed his eyes in frustration.
Venus avoided stepping on all the documents and walked to him, placing her hands on his temples and slowly massaging them, “I heard that you lost two projects?”
“Yes.” Kerry didn’t want her to see himself like this. He didn’t want her to see him as a loser.
She asked again, “Mu’s Group?”
“Then what are you so angry about? That’s my family’s company.”
Kerry looked up at her, “If you were the chairman of the company, I’d hand these projects over to you, but who’s the boss now?”
“Does it make any difference? As long as Mu’s Group is still there, I don’t care who the general manager is or the chairman is. It creates the same value.”
Kerry was even more surprised, “You actually think so?”
“Since I don’t know how to run a business and I’m not interested in him, I can only think in this way.” Venus seemed to remember something and continued, “I think the team my brother has found is good, and even though I’ve disappeared, a sum of money comes into my bank account every month.”
“Huh? Is there such a thing?”
“Well, and the amount is staggering. It should have been arranged by my brother when he sent me away…”
Speaking of the past, both of them went silent. Kerry, gradually calming down, said grudgingly, “Actually, I’m not angry because these two projects. I just can’t accept it. If their proposal was better than mine, then I have nothing to say and willingly admit my defeat. But my staff has worked hard for more than half a month, and in the end it’s not as useful as someone else’s words. Tell me, is this fair?”
Venus laughed, “You’re lamenting now. You businessmen are desperately for the little power of the officials, but now you’re blaming the world instead. I think the world is ruined by you businessmen.”
Kerry actually agreed her words, but he just didn’t want to admit it. He held her small hand, “Are you here to comfort me, or to make me worse? How can you retort back?”
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 222 Meet again. Venus saw Tianye (3)
Venus Mu leaned against his desk, teasing him, “You have smashed so many things, not enough to comfort yourself? All right, I don’t think you can do anything now. Leave work early today. How about going for a drink?”
“You can’t drink too much, remember? You are a total monster after getting drunk.” Kerry Ye got up and looked around, more devastating than the earthquake. He rubbed his eyes and said, “Let’s go. I’ll take you for a ride to the top of the mountain.”
“Then I need to fasten my seat belt. In case you go crazy, I may escape.”
Kerry leaned to her, looking into her eyes, “If I want to die, I will definitely take you with me. I can’t leave you to other men.”
Venus was shocked by the ferocity in his eyes. Before she could answer, he said again, “But our life has just begun. Our good days are yet to come. I don’t want to die at all.”
Venus was in relief, pushing him away and said, “Let’s go.”
Coming out of the office, Kerry felt much better. He went to the secretary’s office and said, “Secretary Liu, clean up the office, please.”
“Yes.” Secretary Liu was happy to see his boss come to normal. Miss Chu was his antidote. He might turn to her for help in the future many times.
After seeing Tianye Mu that day, Venus had an idea inside. Her intuition told her that the man must be her brother.
She was eager to find her brother, so she asked Kerry for a car.
“It’s not safe for you to go alone. I’ll let Henry accompany you.” Kerry did not refuse. Finding him was also his urgent wish. If he was still alive, Venus would have less resentment towards him.
He knew that even though Venus said last time that she no longer hated him, it was her brother and she couldn’t forget it so soon.
“All right, to be honest. The house has not been occupied for a long time. I am quite afraid to go alone.” Venus was going to look for her brother in several villas and apartments. Maybe she would find some clues.
“Call me if you need anything.”
“Well, I see.”
After breakfast, Venus set off with Henry.
In Sky City, Mu family had a lot of real estate. There were four villas alone, two belonging to their parents, one to Tianye and another one to Venus. After their parents died, the two naturally were inherited by Venus and Tianye. The house occupied by Changrui Mu before belonged to Tianye, so it was justified to drive them out.
Standing on the place where she was born and raised, Venus sighed helplessly. As no one lived here, the yard was covered with weeds and spider webs were under the eaves.
How long had it been? It’s just in a ruin.
“Miss Chu, are we going inside?” Henry asked.
Looking inside through the small iron gate, Venus shook her head and said, “No need. You see, the thick moss on the steps. If my brother often goes in and out here, footprints will be left.”
Henry looked away, finding the moss was very dense and there was no sign of being trampled on.
After that, they went to other villas and apartments. There was also no sign that anyone had been there. Even if there was, it was covered by the dust falling again.
Venus was losing her hope little by little.
“Miss Chu, maybe your brother has some estates that you don’t know?”
Venus sighed, “I think so, but since it was bought privately, how do I know where it is?”
“Don’t be anxious. As long as others he is in Sky City, we will find him.”
Zhang He’s consolation was very pale. Mu Venus looked at the scenery outside the car in a daze.
Where the hell was her brother?
“Ah choo!” Tianye was driving and he sneezed for no reason. Xiran Xiao sat on the passenger seat, playing mobile phone games and asked with a smile, “I heard people say that a sneeze means someone misses you. Tianye, which girl is thinking about you?”
“Isn’t that you?” Tianye asked.
“You are by my side. Why should I do so? Yes!” Xiran cheered.
He glanced at her mobile phone screen and said, “Win the game?”
Xiran moved her cervical spine. “Of course. It’s easy for me to win.”
“Ms. Xiao, why do I think you have been folksy since you became addicted to games?”
Xiran laughed, “You’re right. The guys playing the games have influenced me.”
Looking at her bright smiling face, he felt a little sorry. She was originally an unrestrained phoenix and went wherever she wanted, but now she had become a canary, staying only beside him.
“Why are you looking at me like this? Look at the road ahead.”
He withdrew his eyes and asked seriously, “Xiran, do you think it is too boring to be with me?”
“I don’t think so. This kind of life is very plain, but I will have fun by myself. Sleep until I wake up naturally, run and exercise, play games… I still enjoy this kind of life. If one day I get tired of it, you can accompany me to go out and we can get back with energy and passion.”
“Alright.” Anyway, he would never give up on her.
When the car passed by a desert shop, Xiran said hastily, “Stop the car. I want to eat cake.”
He then parked his car on the side of the road and said, “What do you want to eat? I can buy it for you.”
“No. I’ll go by myself and I’ll be right back.” When he was still saying, Xiran unfastened her seat belt and got off the car.
As soon as she entered the shop, Xiran saw an old friend, “Yan, why are you here?”
Venus turned back and saw a good friend. She was delighted to see her. “Xiran, when did you come to Sky City?”
