Leaving the Mo Family’s, Xia Ruya got off the car at the city center, saying that she was going to buy clothes. Meanwhile, Ning Shuqian and Wen Yuya returned directly to the Wen Family Mansion.
Grandpa went out to play mahjong, and Old Mr. Wen was in his study room. Ning Shuqian and Wen Yuya went back to their room to talk.
“Mom, do you think that Wen Xinya will let you help her organize her Homecoming Dinner?” Wen Yuya was hesitant about this issue. Although Wen Xinya did mention the Homecoming Dinner, she technically did not ask for her mother’s help.
Ning Shuqian sneered. “Such an important dinner does not leave any room for mistakes. Your Grandma only cares about Ruya, Your Grandpa is a man, he won’t understand such tasks, and she has been a straying girl for 15 years, how can she take on such a big thing and handle it well? Does she know how to organize a dinner? Does she know what to wear? Does she know who to invite? She doesn’t know anything and will naturally feel flustered. We just have to stay by her side and trick her, she won’t be able to reject us.”
Her words made sense to Wen Yuya. “Mom, you’re right. If she were not panicking, she wouldn’t have asked you about the Homecoming Dinner today. We should make use of this chance, she won’t be able to reject us.”
Ning Shuqian nodded with a smile. “That’s right! That’s exactly what I meant.”
Wen Yuya’s heart warmed up excitedly. “Mom, if you manage to organize this dinner, your status in the Wen Family will be different, and the people in the circle will have to recognize you as Mrs. Wen. You can enter the Capital City’s most high-class social circle, and I will follow in your limelight, raising my status. When that happens, no one will dare to look down on us.”
Wen Yuya could imagine all those who previously looked down on her and made fun of her change like the wind, flattering her and licking her boots.
Ning Shuqian laughed in satisfaction. “Don’t worry! When I invite Aunt Lu out for dinner, I’ll introduce her to Wen Xinya. Since she respects Aunt Lu so much, with Aunt Lu in the middle, this is basically a done deal.”
Youngsters these days all chase after celebrities and are willing to do all sorts of crazy things. Wen Xinya would definitely listen to Aunt Lu’s words.
Wen Yuya clearly understood the power of celebrities. “Mom, you’re the best!”
Ning Shuqian smiled. “You’re the key. You have to maintain a good relationship with her from now on and refrain from clashing with her. Once my position in the Wen Family is more secure, I won’t have to be afraid of this small, immature wretch.”
Wen Yuya nodded furiously. “I understand, mom. I won’t challenge her on purpose, that won’t be of any good to us.”
Since the previous event, Wen Yuya had matured a lot. Even when she saw Wen Xinya, she no longer took the initiative to provoke her anymore. Satisfied, Ning Shuqian said, “I’m glad that you are like that. I feel comforted.”
Wen Yuya seemed to remember something suddenly, and her face turned flustered. “When I posted the picture of Xinya pushing Ruya into the pond online, I revealed my Weibo account to the public. Now that news of Wen Xinya framing us is circulating all around, she definitely won’t let you help her organize the dinner if she knows about this.”
Stunned, Ning Shuqian realized that she did not think of this one loophole. If things were normal, this chance would have been extremely advantageous to them, yet it had to happen at this time. “Delete that video immediately and explain everything. Regarding the circulating news, get Ruya to think of a way to clean her reputation. She was kidnapped recently and wouldn’t be informed about this. Looking at her attitude earlier today, she seems not to know about it yet.”
Wen Yuya gritted her teeth. “Initially, Ruya and I had already smeared her reputation, I’m unwilling to clean it for her now, mom.”
Ning Shuqian sighed. “You’re unwilling, and so am I. Earlier, I did not think of using this Homecoming Dinner to get myself a place in the circle, that’s why I caused so much trouble for her. Now that there’s this chance, of course, we can’t let it go. There are many things that we can only do if we have a stable and secure position in the Wen Family. Even if it’s used against Wen Xinya, we can’t let something small interfere with our bigger plans.”
Wen Yuya bit her tongue. The temptation to enter the Capital City’s social circle of the top families greatly outweighed her feelings of hatred towards Wen Xinya. “Mom, you can rest assured that I will handle this matter properly.”
Ning Shuqian nodded in relief. “Yuya, you have grown. You know what’s more important.”
Wen Yuya indignantly replied, “Mom, I know what you said is right. When we have truly secured our positions in the Wen Family, we won’t have to fear that b*tch Wen Xinya.”
“As expected, I have taught you well.”
“Mom, are you really going to try your best to help Wen Xinya organize a perfect Homecoming Dinner?” Wen Yuya thought of how this Homecoming Dinner was meant to introduce Wen Xinya to the media and the entire circle, announcing her as the big Miss Wen, as well as the official heir of the Wen Family, and her hatred filled up her heart and engulfed her like poisonous algae.
Ning Shuqian laughed. “Silly child, of course, I have to put in my best for this dinner. Not only must everything be perfect, but there also can’t be a single mistake. Otherwise, it won’t just be embarrassing for Wen Xinya, but for me too.”
Wen Yuya’s eyes flashed with hatred. “But mom, once this dinner is over, Wen Xinya will be the true young Mistress of the Wen Family. We…”
Ning Shuqian’s eyes revealed her darkest intentions. “I certainly won’t let her become the big Missus of the Wen Family. Even if she becomes the big Miss Wen, I will make her lose face and drag down Old Mr. Wen and the Wen Family, rendering her unable to lift her head in front of the circle ever again.”
Wen Yuya froze, not understanding her words. “Mom, what do you mean by that?”
Ning Shuqian smiled coldly, her eyes displaying her viciousness. “Of course, I have to make the dinner perfect, but when things that aren’t part of the organizer’s responsibilities go wrong, the blame can’t be put on me.”
Wen Yuya could not conceal her excitement. “Mom, you have a plan against her! Quick, let me know.”
Ning Shuqian pretended to be mysterious. “I can’t tell you for the time being, in case things go wrong. Just sit back and watch when it happens.”
“Mom, I won’t tell anyone about it. What could go wrong? I can’t wait to know what horrible state Wen Xinya will be in.” With Ning Shuqian behaving like this, Wen Yuya’s curiosity just got bigger. She really wanted to know.
Ning Shuqian smiled and refused to speak, putting on an unpredictable front.
Wen Yuya looked at her, knowing that she would not tell her anything. She could not help but pout. “Forget it. If you won’t tell me, I will find out eventually anyway.”
