“Did Xia Ruya told you I was the one who chased her out of the Wen Family?” Wen Xinya turned to look at Xia Ruya, who was a short distance away from them. She had obviously noted the commotion over here but acted as if nothing had happened and continued to select her clothes.
True enough, as soon as Wen Xinya finished her sentence, Xia Ruya came rushing over. “Sister, Xinya, what happened?” she asked with a curious look.
When Xia Ruxue was just about to speak, Wen Xinya interrupted with a smile. “Your sister said I was the one who chased you out of the Wen Family.”
Xia Ruya tried to correct the misunderstanding. “Sister, you are mistaken. I am not the true daughter of the Wen Family. Now that Uncle Wen’s child has been found, I cannot possibly continue to stay in the Wen Family forever. However, I was fortunate enough that the Wen Family took care of me for the past 12 years. If not for them, I cannot imagine what would have happened to me.”
Xia Ruxue gave Wen Xinya a hard stare. Then she looked at Xia Ruya and said, “Sister, you are being too kind-hearted. That is why she’s been bullying you. Do you remember the last time you visited her at the Wen Family? She did not show appreciation and even pushed you into the pond.”
Xia Ruya quickly explained, “Xinya didn’t do it on purpose. I am not angry with her. Moreover, I have taken away the kinship that rightfully belonged to her for the past 12 years. It’s me who has done her wrong.”
Xia Ruxue said angrily, “Sister, you are really making me mad.”
Wen Xinya stood aside watching the drama put up by this pair of sisters. She thought Xia Ruya had perfect acting skills. She could most certainly win the “Best Actress” award. It would be a waste of talent that she wasn’t into acting.
Right at this moment, Wang returned hastily with the pair of shoes.
Xia Ruxue stepped over swiftly and grabbed the pair of shoes. She looked at Wen Xinya with arrogance and said, “My Sister is afraid of you, but not me. Don’t ever think of taking away things that belong to me.”
Xia Ruya tried to stop her sister. “Sister, Xinya likes this pair of shoes. Let’s not fight with her. I’ll get you a better pair of shoes later.”
Xia Ruxue wouldn’t budge. “It was me who saw this pair of shoes first. Why should I give in to her just because she likes it?”
Both shopping assistants Sister Yang and Wang didn’t know how to react. They looked at Wen Xinya nervously.
Wen Xinya’s lips widened and her smile slowly got broader, until she was smiling brightly. Then, her smile suddenly disappeared in an instant. Under the lights from the chandelier, there was a chilly coldness deep in her eyes, as if there were limitless evil intentions in them.
Xia Ruxue held her breath tensely. It almost felt like Wen Xinya could release numerous cold arrows from her eyes at that very next moment and they would pierce through her.
Wen Xinya slowly walked towards Xia Ruxue and pried open her fingers one by one! Then she removed the shoes from her hands. Instead of performing these moves in a fierce and forceful manner, Wen Xinya was able to do it so gracefully that she appeared as if nothing was wrong with her actions.
Everyone was stunned, especially Xia Ruya. Only a street gangster would forcefully snatch something away from someone else. However, Wen Xinya did it with such a smooth flow of actions that nobody was able to react in time.
Wen Xinya sat on the sofa, kicked off the shoes she was originally wearing and put on the new pair of light golden shoes. She had a pair of beautiful, pure-white legs with defining contours. The shoes matched her perfectly, as if they were custom made for her. Under the lights from the chandelier, the light-golden surface shone and glittered with style. Though there weren’t any extravagant accessories, they carried a style of simplistic elegance.
Miss Yang couldn’t resist her urge to comment, “This pair of shoes looks perfect on you, as if they were specially custom made for you.”
Wen Xinya kicked the light-golden shoes away. She wouldn’t give them another look, as if she was determined to get rid of it. After putting back her own shoes, she came in front of Xia Ruxue and said coldly, “A gentleman shouldn’t take away what someone loves. Since Miss Xia loves them so much, I shall let you have it.”
You can have it if I don’t want it anymore! This was obviously issuing a challenge right in her face!
Xia Ruxue’s face turned red with anger. “Bitch! So what if you are Missus Wen from the Wen Family? A chick will always remain a chick. You will never turn into a phoenix even if you manage to make your way into a phoenix’s nest. You cannot be compared to my sister.”
Wen Xinya abruptly took out her cell phone and played the video of Xia Ruxue insulting her. Then she gently shook the cell phone in her hands and said, “Xia Ruya, you saw your sister insulting me but yet did nothing to help. I’m curious, if this video was shown to Grandpa, what would he think? Would he become dissatisfied of the Xia Family and hence cause the relationship of both families to turn sour?”
Wen Xinya knew that the Wen Family had rendered tremendous help on the Xia Family’s business because of the relationship with Xia Ruya. In her previous life, because of the Wen Family’s help, the Xia Corporation did extremely well in their business and became a world famous organization, almost on par with the Wen Corporation.
Of course, Wen Xinya wouldn’t want Grandpa to see this video clip. She wanted to keep it as a last resort and only use it when it was absolutely necessary.
Xia Ruya did not expect her to do this. She turned pale and quickly pulled Xia Ruxue aside. “My sister acts rash at times, and sometimes I can’t do anything about it. Xinya, how can you put the blame on me? I’ve asked her not to fight with you over the shoes earlier,” she said.
Xia Ruxue added furiously, “Wen Xinya, come at me if you dare. Don’t you bully my sister.”
“Foolish.” Wen Xinya simply ignored her. She did not feel sorry at all. Xia Ruxue reminded her of how Wen Yuya treated her in her previous life. She could only blame her own foolishness for putting her trust in Wen Yuya.
“You…” Xia Ruxue fumed with anger.
Wen Xinya slowly walked towards Xia Ruya. She didn’t want to continue her hypocrite act. “You wanted to make use of your sister to malign me? Xia Ruya, are you really that kind and elegant as you’ve portrayed yourself to be?”
If Ning Shuqian and Wen Yuya were the main culprits of causing her immense sufferings in her previous life, then Xia Ruya would be the one who led her to the path of destruction. She took everything away from her—kinship, friendship, love, wealth and identity. Xia Ruya spent all her efforts snatching everything that belonged to Wen Xinya, leaving her with nothing but a bad reputation. Wen Xinya was always living in the shadows, while Xia Ruya would step on her even more, pushing her into a hell of misery!
Xia Ruya was the person she hated the most!
At this moment, Xia Ruya was still trying to look innocent. She replied with a confused look on her face, “I… I do not understand what you are saying.”
“You really don’t understand?” Wen Xinya asked with a cold smile, staring straight into her eyes.
Xia Ruya felt an unspoken power from her stare, piercing straight into her soul. A chill ran down her spine, rendering her speechless.
After tearing the mask of pretense from this hypocrite, Wen Xinya couldn’t be bothered with further argument. She walked directly to the cashier for payment.
She requested the cashier to pass the bill to Ning Shuqian, provided the Mo Family’s address for the items to be delivered, and then left Jo-ramst.
