Chapter 48: I Want to Totally Ruin Her Reputation and Let Her Suffer the Greatest Humiliation
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
The Floral Lingo Pavilion was a well-known beauty spa in the Capital city. Their members were some of the wealthiest people in the city. Ning Shuqian and Wen Yuya were regulars of this spa.
Ning Shuqian and Wen Yuya were in a VIP room within the spa. Fragrances from the essential oils filled the air. Ning Shuqian was enjoying a full-body SPA treatment while Wen Yuya was enjoying a lavender oil massage. Both were very expensive SPA packages.
The spa beautician who was serving her whispered into her ears, “Madam Wen, we have just imported some new lavender essential oils from France. These oils will help your skin maintain its youthfulness and the fragrance could last as long as one week. Would you like to give it a try?”
Ning Shuqian, who was lying on the bed, said in a lazy tone, “Sure, let’s give it a try!”
“Certainly. I will carry out a lavender oil massage for you,” said the beautician. She then got out of the room to make preparations.
Ning Shuqian’s cell phone rang. She took a look at her phone and smiled with satisfaction. “Hello, Editor Yang!”
Wen Yuya, who was lying on the other side, opened her eyes and started listening carefully to the conversation.
A middle-aged male voice came from the other end of the line. He said in a sharp and irritating voice, “Madam Wen, have you seen the newspaper and magazines today? I have completed the tasks you requested. When are you going to pay me the rest of the promised money?”
Of course, Ning Shuqian had already seen the newspaper and magazines today. She was greatly satisfied with Editor Yang’s efficiency. It was all thanks to Ruya for introducing Editor Yang to her. “Not bad. But it’s not enough. I will send you more information shortly. I want to totally ruin her reputation and let her suffer the greatest humiliation.”
Editor Yang was in shock. “This wasn’t what we had initially agreed on. Why are there sudden changes?” He continued in a vicious tone, “Madam Wen, please do not play tricks with me. If you make me mad, I will expose this incident.”
Ning Shuqian did not expect Editor Yang to be so influential in the media industry. He had managed to spread the news to every corner of the city within a short timeframe. “Please be assured, I will reward you handsomely for your efforts. I’ll transfer to you the rest shortly. In addition, I’ll give you another 500,000 dollars after you’ve accomplished the required task.”
“That’s much better.”
After hearing his reply, Ning Shuqian was assured that he would be able to accomplish the given task. She said in a joyful tone, “Editor Yang, a capable person will only be paid for solving someone else’s problem. You should be well aware of how the game is played, am I right?”
Editor Yang reassured Ning Shuqian. “Yes, I am aware. Madam Wen, please do not worry. My mouth is sealed. I will never give you away. Once I receive the money I’ll go to somewhere far away and never appear before you ever again.”
Ning Shuqian was happy to hear that. “Well, if that’s the case, I’ll wait patiently for you to bring me some good news.”
Ning Shuqian ended the call. Wen Yuya asked impatiently, “Mother, what’s the progress of the matter?”
Wen Yuya was reminded of what happened that day at the Jo-ramst shop. Wen Xinya was walking towards her, and the light from behind her lit up on Wen Xinya, putting her in the spotlight. Wen Yuya could only look up to Wen Xinya from where she was. She felt as if Wen Xinya had overpowered her world and she could only live in her shadow.
Right at that moment, she suddenly realized Wen Xinya was her nemesis in this life.
Ning Shuqian smiled with satisfaction and raised her brow. “Don’t worry, Editor Yang has got everything covered.”
Wen Yuya was happy to hear that. She said in a wicked tone, “Mother, this time I’ll let that bitch, Wen Xinya, have her reputation become totally ruined.”
Ning Shuqian replied with a smile, “Yes, let’s do it right this time.”
Wen Yuya became hesitant. “Mother, if we manage to ruin Wen Xinya’s reputation, would Grandpa and Grandma really disown her? She is the only flesh and blood to the Wen Family and Grandpa has always valued kinship. What if…” she asked.
“Silly kid. It doesn’t matter even if the Wen Family values kinship. This doesn’t change the fact that they will always prioritize the Wen Family’s reputation over everything else. Do you remember how we managed to drive her out of the family with minimal effort? That’s because Grandpa also despised Wen Xinya for her unglamorous past. Your Father has a strong sense of pride as well. If Wen Xinya is put in a bad light, that’ll indirectly affect the Wen Family as well. Your Father will be the first to disown her, together with your Grandma who will definitely take his side. I will also influence your Father to let the Board of Directors and shareholders of the Wen Corporation persuade your Grandpa. In this way, we’ll have everything under our control.”
She had originally intended to slowly torture Mo Yunyao’s daughter by leading her to a path of no return. She would allow Wen Xinya to fall into a bottomless dark hole and give up on herself. Anyone could walk over her and she would have a ruined reputation and lose all her dignity. However, little did she expect that that little bitch Wen Xinya was far more difficult to deal with than she thought. She had no choice but to act fast.
“Mother, will the Board of Directors and shareholders interfere in the Wen Family affairs?” Wen Yuya opened her eyes wide in disbelief.
“The Wen Family is the largest shareholder of the Wen Corporation. Your Grandpa holds the position of Chairman for the Board of Directors. Any negative news about Wen Xinya would impact the reputation of the Wen Family directly. And this, in turn, will affect the Wen Corporation indirectly, causing its share price to drop. They are all interlinked. The Board of Directors will not turn a blind eye.” Birds of the same feather flock together. Just like the Wen Family, the Board of Directors too prioritized their interests over everything else. This made them easy targets for her manipulation.
Wen Yuya felt assured. “Mother, you are the smartest.”
“You’ve finally realized my strengths?” Ning Shuqian replied with a sly look on her face.
Wen Yuya laughed. “Mother, you are the smartest mum on the planet. Wen Xinya thought she would be safe by hiding in her Grampy’s place. Never belittle the one who is more experienced. Fortunately, we’ve listened to your advice and did not act recklessly. Now we’ve finally caught her off-guard and found an opportunity to make good use of this incident against her.”
“That’s right. What good does it make to confront her with an argument? You do not get anything out of it. See who laughs the loudest in the end? You have to change your temper and start thinking rationally.” Ning Shuqian advised with care.
Wen Yuya replied elatedly, “Mother, I understand!”
“Now that Wen Xinya is being put in a bad light, you should be staying at home more to accompany Grandpa and Grandma. Ruya has returned to the Xia Family, and while Wen Xinya is away, the two elders will be lonely. This is the best chance to build a good relationship with them.”
Wen Yuya’s expression turned pale. She said, “Mother, you know both Grandpa and Grandma have treated me coldly sometimes, I am…”
“To achieve your goals, you have to be adaptable and be patient. If you can adapt to any situation, you would have already achieved half of the success.”
Wen Yuya nodded. “I’ll try.”
Ning Shuqian was a little worried. Xia Ruya had been visiting the Wen Family’s mansion frequently these few days. It was obvious that she wanted to get close to Grandpa and Grandma. While Wen Xinya’s bad news was spreading, Xia Ruya’s virtues would immediately be contrasted. The two elders would then naturally favor Xia Ruya who had been living with them for the past 12 years.
