After Wen Xinya left, the silence was restored in the room where the light was dim and yellow. Although it was warm at first, it was consumed by the darkness, making the room look dark and still.
Si Yiyan lit up a cigarette and then snubbed it nonchalantly. It made him look stern and mysterious.
The cigarette looked small and non-threatening. However, rarely would anyone notice that the temperature would go beyond a thousand degrees when maximum. It was ten times that of boiling water.
Although his heart was calm, who would have known how cold it was beneath the calmness?
He looked out of the window at the dim, yellow light in the darkness. It was just like a flickering light struggling to prolong its life.
He snubbed it and extinguished the flames. Although the temperature was beyond a thousand-degree celsius, he did not feel it at all.
His rationality and anger were trying to defeat each other!
It was as if his demons were taking over him!
The door of the ward was pushed open.
Si Yiyan’s emotions instantly overflowed.
Gu Yuehan could sense that Si Yiyan was still angry. He squinted and even his breathing slowed down. He was completely speechless.
Si Yiyan turned around slowly and asked coldly, “What’s the matter?”
Gu Yuehan snapped out of his trance and said, “Ninth Young Master, the military has interrogated the three terrorists and, just like you expected, there are no leads at all.”
Gu Yuehan calmed himself down and carefully scrutinized Si Yiyan, only to see that he was still as composed as usual. It was as if he did not have any change in emotions at all. He almost felt that he was just hallucinating everything that happened.
But, was that possible?
Si Yiyan turned around and walked towards the bar counter as if he did not hear him. He took out a bottle of Clos du Mesnil. The champagne cork of the champagne bottle opened with a pop as if it was alive. It had a heavenly aroma that made him feel much calmer.
Gu Yuehan could sense that Si Yiyan’s emotions were stirring. Having worked for him for ten years, he understood Si Yiyan’s temperament very well, but he only realized now that he only understood the sides and attributes that Si Yiyan wanted him to see. The only person who truly understood him was Wen Xinya.
“What did they say about my suggestion?”
Si Yiyan’s voice was deep, refined and exquisite like alcohol. He swirled the glass in his hand gently, appearing noble and classy.
Shaking his head, Gu Yuehan said, “Our negotiation experts have already liaised and discussed with them about the matter. They don’t agree to let us take part in the interrogation or allow us to handle the three terrorists.”
In order to rescue Wen Xinya, Si Yiyan and the military had established a cooperation at the last minute. The military requested him to help them rescue her safely, though he was not allowed to intervene with the prosecution of the three terrorists. The military even took the chance to be greedy and asked for plenty of advanced weapons and accessories.
Si Yiyan agreed!
Ever since Si Yiyan took over Xiasi Group and Lucifer, he had been the one to plot against others and manipulate others. He had never been shortchanged like this before.
Clearly, Wen Xinya mattered more to Si Yiyan than monetary benefits did.
After a moment of silence, Si Yiyan said in a raspy voice that had turned cold and low because of the alcohol, “There’s no negotiation that we can’t win. The only problem that can exist is the lack of terms that are attractive enough.”
What did the military covet the most? It was none other than the most advanced technology and firearms accessories. It was the last thing that the Xiasi Group lacked, and he was determined to obtain the rights to handle the three terrorists himself.
Gu Yuehan said with a frown, “Ninth Young Master, I know you’re determined to get the right to handle the three terrorists, but the leader of the military is no fool. Those three terrorists have always been related to the Chinese government, and they definitely will not let us have them.”
It was not like Si Yiyan to let off the people who had harmed the love of his life. Yet, there was nothing he could do except try and comfort Wen Xinya.
Si Yiyan was suddenly riled up and frustrated about how helpless he was. There was nothing he could do at all and Wen Xinya had to deal with Xia Ruya herself. He could not interfere with the handling of the three terrorists either. The power, status and wealth that he was proud to possess, actually became useless at this point.
Gu Yuehan seemed to have felt a sudden pressure which made him shiver uncontrollably. “Ninth Young Master…”
Si Yiyan sneered., “Since they don’t want me to interfere, all the more will I do so.”
Gu Yuehan got a great shock, feeling a little afraid and uncertain. He could not guess Si Yiyan’s thoughts at all. He broke out in cold sweat and said, “Ninth Young Master, don’t act rashly. Let’s…”
