Chapter 9: The room that you can’t get close to
Not until they came out of the lunge did Venus Mu notice the men in black suits standing in a row in front of the lounge.
The man in lead was Henry Zhang; he walked up as soon as he saw Kerry Ye coming out, and said respectfully, “Young Master, everything has been arranged and ready.”
“Well done!” Kerry nodded and then looked at Venus, “Here we go! My newly-wed wife!”
Venus bit her lips; she had no choice but to follow Kerry to the direction of the wedding hall; then she saw Xinyou Qiao as she was turning the corner.
It turned out that Xinyou had been left here by Henry since she came out of the lounge, and she was not allowed to get any closer.
As Venus’s bride’s mate, Xinyou walked behind Venus and Kerry. Seeing the tall and handsome Kerry walking beside Venus, Xinyou’s jealousy began to rise crazily like wild weeds.
The following fabulous wedding ceremony went smoothly under the spotlights; everything seemed normal with men in black suits coming in and out; the only thing was, however, Kerry looked more and more unwell.
Venus was thinking to ask if he’s fine, but on seeing his indifferent face, she didn’t bother saying anything any more.
At night, they went back to the Ye Villa by car.
It was Venus’s first time to set foot in this place – Kerry Ye’s house, the place she was going to live in from this moment on.
Compared to the tiny villa of the Mu Family, the Ye Villa was giant and first-class. As soon as they entered, a group of servants led by John the butler, came up and greeted respectfully, “My Lord, My Lady.”
“Eh…” Venus had hard time adapting to the scene and she swallowed her saliva.
“Alright, off you go!” Kerry raised his hand and told everyone to leave. He turned to Venus and then said to John “Keep a close eye on her!”
Venus was shocked that Kerry just left like that. With Henry and the other guys, Kerry went to the study room, not even giving an extra look on her.
What a strange man!
Venus was dissatisfied and curled her lips. But it was a good chance for her to enjoy being alone. Then John came up and asked smilingly, “My Lady, are you hungry? Would you like to have something to eat?”
Then Venus realized that she hadn’t had anything to eat since she was busy with the wedding, so she nodded, “OK, I am just getting a little hungry now.”
John smiled, “Please wait for a moment, My Lady; I am asking the kitchen to prepare right away. Since it’s your first time to be in the Ye Villa, I would like to show you around…”
What happened next was John’s long introduction of the villa, which nearly got Venus sleepy.
“My Lady, I’d like to remind you one more time, that you can go anywhere you like in the villa but never go inside the room with a bell hanging on its door. No one shall get close to the room without My Lord’s permission, or all of us shall be punished; am I clear, My Lady?” John reminded her for the third time.
“I got it, got it…” Venus nodded at once and at the same time the food was ready, so grasped this slice of hope and ran to the dinning room; she sat down and said, “Mr Wang, let me have my dinner first, then you can continue some other time!”
She was really bored and sleepy listening to the family rules of the Ye Family. So many rules!
“Ah…” John sighed and left her alone with her dinner, thinking everything’s fine as long as she wouldn’t challenge Young Master’s bottom line.
In the study room
Kerry was sitting behind the office table with an angry face; he frowned and knocked the table with his fingers impatiently, “Henry, what the hell is going on?”
Chapter 10: Have to find that woman!
“Well…” Henry Zhang didn’t know how to answer it; he waited for a while and then said, “Since the news got released that you and Venus Mu were getting married, we have sent for more men to trace the location of Tianye Mu; especially on the wedding day, we arranged all the forces in the Ye Family but found no trace of Tianye Mu; there’s even nothing strange that day at all…”
“Shit!” Kerry cursed and then laughed coldly, “He knew what I married Venus for, but it’s unbelievable that he should stay so calm, huh!”
Henry Zhang paused and then said, “My Lord, could it be possible that Tianye has already…”
“Impossible!” Kerry immediately stopped knocking the table, “If he had really died, we would have already got the news by now; now there are two possibilities, he is either in trouble and the Mafia has blocked the news, or he is hiding from us deliberately. Which kind do you think he belongs to, with an intelligence like his?”
“I…” Henry shook his head, “I’ve no idea!”
“Yeah, that’s it. He wouldn’t be Tianye Mu if he could be guessed so easily by common people.” Kerry said with great hatred, though he pitied Tianye as a true hero. “Send for someone to keep an eye on that woman. As long as she’s in my hands, Tianye Mu will surely show up one day; I will make him pay for the price of Kevin Ye’s death!”
“Yes, My Lord!”
“Off you go.” Kerry waved his hand and told Henry to leave; and then he suddenly thought of something else and said immediately, “Wait, what about the matter that I’ve told you to look into? Have you found the woman in the hotel that night?”
Henry stopped his steps and shook his head, “Not yet. The surveillance equipment has been touched, though I tried to have it recovered, it was still seriously damaged and nothing could be seen. I also sent for someone to look for other surveillance equipment nearby but still got nothing. I am sorry, My Lord.”
Henry apologized and Kerry knew his ability and knew he had tried his best. If people in the Ye Family couldn’t do it, then the whole matter must have been designed.
It’s just, who’s that woman?
He somehow actually missed the feeling of that night!
Thinking of this, Kerry seemed to have thought of something else. He took the file case down the bookshelf behind him and took out the the design paper; he handed it to Henry and said, “This is something she left behind that night; go and print it out and ask about it in all the Designing Schools in Sky City and find out who she is!”
“Yes, sir!” Henry took the order and left.
He had to find that woman!
After dinner, John took Venus upstairs.
Venus went into the room and shut the door. She went to take a shower because it’s been a long and tiring day, all she wanted was a good shower and a nice sleep.
It took one hour to finally finish showering, then she found there was actually no bath rope, what’s worse, she didn’t bring any clean clothes in.
What to do?
Go out naked?
She thought about it and felt really confused; could she wear dirty clothes to go out?
