Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
After breakfast, Wen Xinya called Qiu Yifan and got him to introduce a private investigator who had a close working relationship with Chaofan Lawyer Corporation. She wanted to monitor Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya closely. It was common for attorneys to have a few private investigators in close working relationships.
After she had hung up, Ou Yangfeng, Zhou Tianyu, Grandpa Du and Du Ruo called to comfort her. Zhou Tianyu had offered to clarify matters on her behalf but Wen Xinya rejected her offer. She wanted to deal with it herself. She had already returned to the Wen family for some time, it was time she stood up for herself to establish a name in society.
When Wen Xinya finally got off the phone, she saw Si Yiyan standing under the viburnum tree. He was wearing a spotless white shirt, displaying his strong and sturdy physique. There was a strong mysterious aura around him. The bright sunlight shone on him, enhancing his simplicity and virtues. She was dumbfounded by this scene.
Si Yiyan noticed her standing beside her bedroom window. He suddenly advanced towards the window. With a leap, he entered her room.
It happened within seconds and caught Wen Xinya by surprise. "What are you doing? Get out! Who gave you permission to enter my room? Aren't you aware that it's rude to enter a girl's room without permission?"
Si Yiyan smirked. "Relax! It's not the first time I come into your room. If you do not remember, let me remind you about last night…"
Wen Xinya gritted her teeth furiously. The only thing he did was to help her into the room and prepared some hot water for her bath. But from the way he described, it sounded as if they were having an affair last night.
Si Yiyan laughed. "Why are you staring at me? I am concerned about you. Did you sleep well last night? Do you feel any discomfort this morning?"
Wen Xinya stared hard at him, flushed with anger. "Thank you, I'm fine!" she replied.
Si Yiyan replied with a smile, "That's good! I was worried you might catch a cold after exposing yourself to the cold wind last night."
"I'm good. Thank you for your concern," replied Wen Xinya coldly. Obviously, she was still upset that he barged into her room without a warning.
Si Yiyan commented. "You're such a heartless person. Someone puked all over me last night, and I was the one preparing a hot bath and tea for you. How can you turn your back against me now?"
His intimate response softened Wen Xinya, making her blush. "I'm not a heartless person. Do not spout nonsense! Who gave you permission to enter my room last night?"
Si Yiyan suddenly raised his head and looked at her. Wen Xinya could not avoid in time and they made eye-contact. There were passion and warmth in his eyes. She could feel his enthusiasm and was mesmerized by him. She had almost forgotten to breathe.
"Do you… Do you have anything for me?" Wen Xinya turned her face away to break their eye-contact.
"I've done some investigation and managed to find something interesting. Do you want to take a look?" Si Yiyan's eyes suddenly caught the ear stud on her ear. He remembered it. She had started wearing it from that time she was at the airport to fetch Old Mo and did not remove it since then.
Wen Xinya was startled. "Is it about today's news?"
Her scandal had just been reported and he was already able to carry out an investigation with some findings. His fast action made her feel uneasy. Only a man with a strong influence would be able to accomplish such a task at this speed.
"Mmm!" Si Yiyan handed over a large envelope to her.
Wen Xinya took the envelope and started looking through the information on the documents inside. Very soon, the name of an organization caught her eye. "Heavenbright Press Media?"
Wen Xinya had already heard about Heavenbright Press Media numerous times. In her previous life, Heavenbright Press Media would be the first to report all the bad news that Wen Xinya was involved in. This press media was even sued by many well-known artistes in the city for the defamation they made in one of their headlines. That was why she had a deep impression of this press media.
"After some investigation, I've found out that it was Heavenbright Press Media who started it all. Within a short period of time, almost every press media in the city has received a similar envelope like this containing news about your scandal. I have also checked on this press media company." Si Yiyan observed Wen Xinya's reaction and she seemed to have heard about this company. He was surprised. This company was set up just a few days ago. How did she find out about it?
"These are very detailed information!" Wen Xinya carefully looked through the information about Heavenbright Press Media. Her attention was brought to the Chief Editor of the company, Yang Chongguang. There was detailed information about Yang Chongguang, including his hobbies and even the names of the women he had slept with.
Si Yiyan replied softly, "Mmm. These are all that I've managed to get. I hope they are useful to you."
In fact, he wished he could stand up for her. He did not want his beloved girl to be involved in a scandal with another man. However, she needed to be stronger. She did not need to hide behind the protection of a man. What she wanted was the power to control her own destiny.
Wen Xinya had a plan. She kept the documents and thanked him. "Thank you very much. I can make good use of this information."
Before she got hold of these data, she did not have a clear direction. But after receiving these documents from Si Yiyan, she had a good plan of action. She knew this was a good opportunity for her to get back at Ning Shuqian.
"By doing you such a big favor, do you think you owe me an explanation for the relationship between you and Xu Zhenyu?" She was an intelligent girl. He only needed to do the right things at the right time and she would be able to handle any situation well.
Si Yiyan watched Wen Xinya as she was deep in thought. She had Xu Zhenyu's ear stud on her ear, and Xu Zhenyu had hers on his ear as well. They seemed to have an intimate relationship where Si Yiyan had no way to interfere.
Wen Xinya did not expect such a question from him. She unknowingly replied to him these words, "Are you… Are you jealous?"
She nearly bit her tongue off when she realized she should not have spoken in this way, indicating there was indeed something going on between her and Si Yiyan.
Si Yiyan walked towards her and wrapped his arms around her. He said in a deep tone of voice, "Wen Xinya, you are an intelligent girl. Your eyes…" He then raised his hands and stroked her eyelids gently. "Can see through someone's soul," he continued.
Therefore, she could see through him and knew what he was thinking.
Right at this moment, Wen Xinya was flustered. She could feel the warmth from the touch on her eyelids. Her heart was racing. She tilted her head and moved away from his fingers. Unknowingly, she felt a sense of guilt and replied, "There's nothing going on between Xu Zhenyu and myself."
She could not explain why she felt the need to answer to him. But indeed he had gone through an extra mile and did her a great favor. Maybe he did it so that he could confront her for an explanation on this matter. She realized she could not refuse or let him down.
Si Yiyan's eyes glittered with passion like fireworks in the sky. He was able to provide certainty in times of vulnerability. "I will believe anything you say!"
