"Haowen, I didn't expect you to quarrel with father over Yuya. Haowen… quickly apologize to him now. Yuya has caused shame upon the Wen Family this time, it's understandable that father will punish her. You… don't have to care too much about my and Yuya's feelings." Ning Shuqian's eyes shined with resolve, but her expression was extremely miserable.
Wen Haowen saw the sadness and despair on her face, but she still tried to think of him and his position. Such a gentle and caring wife, just like in books. He was very satisfied and touched by her actions.
He thought back to his dead wife. That woman was always so put-together and grand, she had everything, and whatever she did was always so perfect and flawless. She had never once sacrificed for him, and was never considerate towards him!
Ning Shuqian lowered her head in self-resentment. "Haowen, it's all because of me and Yuya, causing you to fight with father. I feel so bad about it!"
Wen Haowen's chest warmed, and he consoled her immediately. "This has nothing to do with you. I was worried about Yuya and fought with him recklessly before I learned about the truth of this matter. Don't blame yourself."
Ning Shuqian was still not convinced. "But, the root of the problem is still me and Yuya. If dad and mom misunderstand…"
Wen Haowen cut her off. "If I say that it's not your fault, it's not your fault. I know what I am doing, don't worry."
Wen Haowen understood that she was worried that father and mother would pin the blame on her. Ever since she married into the Wen Family, she had been considerate and nice to father and mother in every way possible. He took note of all of this. Seeing her cautious expression now, his heart was pained.
Ning Shuqian's eyes glimmered as she smiled a little, nodding her head.
Old Mr. Wen looked at the couple standing together as if they were the only people in the world and felt annoyed. Seeing Ning Shuqian's gleeful expression, probably spinning more lies, he huffed in anger and went back to his study.
Seeing that the old man had left the living room, Wen Haowen's face hardened and looked at Ning Shuqian. "Go up and pack! In a while, we'll leave the Wen Mansion and go stay in the house at Emerald Mountain Lake."
As the words leaf his mouth, he knew that it was too late to take them back. After the old man had slapped him, he had already thought of moving out of the Wen Mansion. Now that Shuqian and Yuya were facing issues, this was the perfect timing for them to leave the old man's careful watch. The old man liked to meddle in everything, making him feel uneasy and uncomfortable. Furthermore, Wen Xinya had just moved back into the Wen Mansion, and he did not want to live under the same roof as her.
Old Madam Wen was flustered upon hearing those words. "Haowen, why are you like this? Haven't you solved your misunderstanding with your father? Why do you still have to move out? Our Wen Family has always been small in number, now that you are moving out, the spacious mansion will look huge."
Wen Haowen stared daggers at Wen Xinya. "Mom, I am leaving, but didn't another person just come in? Why would this mansion be extremely spacious? Someone will cause trouble, I assure that you will have something exciting every day."
Old Madam Wen understood her son's meaning, and her eyes narrowed. "She is a debt collector. The Wen Family must have owed her something in the past life, so she is returning to the Wen Family to wreak havoc. Even Ruya doesn't come back often anymore. Initially, when Ruya was around, the Wen Family had never been so broken!"
Old Madam Wen's words were targeted at Wen Xinya. Wen Xinya froze, not knowing if she should leave or stay.
But her heart turned cold. Did the Wen Family not owe her anything in the past life? She was not here to collect debts, but here to take revenge, take back everything that was rightfully hers.
Wen Haowen frowned. "Mom, don't say that. If father hears it, he will scold you again. You should know, he treats Wen Xinya as his treasure."
Hearing Wen Haowen's words, Old Madam Wen only got angrier. Ever since Wen Xinya returned to the Wen Family, the old man had been throwing tantrums at her every day over Wen Xinya's matters. "I just prefer Ruya. When she was in the Wen Family, the whole Wen Family was happy all the time, not like now. The entire family has broken apart."
Wen Haowen was helpless against his mother and warned, "Mom, when I leave the Wen Mansion, you have to be careful of your words everywhere. Don't let people take advantage of you, or you will be the one suffering in the end."
Old Madam Wen was extremely touched. She knew that in the entire world, only her son cared about her the most. "If so, Haowen, why don't you just stay behind, don't leave me to face and fend off Wen Xinya alone. I don't know what tricks she has up her sleeves."
Wen Haowen shook his head. "Mom, say no more, I have already made up my mind. Dad also let me move out to make space for Wen Xinya. If I continue staying here, that would be going against my own words. Her venom can even make me retreat."
Old Madam Wen had always been on her son's side. No matter how much she disliked Ning Shuqian, when the old man refused to let Haowen marry Ning Shuqian, she stood on her son's side. Therefore, she shared his hatred for Wen Xinya. "Haowen, what do you mean by this? Your dad may be old, but he is not silly. He would not let a 15-year-old street gangster and hobo granddaughter displace you."
Wen Haowen's eyes glimmered in disappointment. "I thought that father only brought Wen Xinya back to save the bloodline and treated her with pity. But father slapped me yesterday because of her. If father is not an old fool, what is he?"
Old Madam Wen was in shock. "What? The old man hit you? I'm going to ask him about it, does his heart still even contain the two of us?"
While saying so, she rushed up the stairs.
Wen Xinya sat in the living room, watching in amazement. Looks like everyone was hiding the actor God within them. When necessary, they could all go on stage to receive Oscar awards.
Wen Haowen talked bad about her in front of Old Madam Wen, purposely making Old Madam Wen hate her even more so that even after he left the Wen Mansion, she would not make life easy for her.
They were actually related by blood, yet he treated her so distantly, causing her to feel cold inside!
Mother wasted herself on him!
A woman like Mother deserved better and more!
If only she did not have such a useless husband, despite the lack of scientific and technological advancements, Mother would not have died from dystocia after giving birth.
