Chapter 327: What Do My Affairs Have to Do with You?
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya had a busy and fulfilling time, during which she was showered with Si Yiyan’s love. She even felt less peeved than she used to when she saw her nemesis, Chu Jingnan.
Ever since she used Chu Jingnan to set Xia Ruya up during the school’s anniversary celebrations, Chu Jingnan seemed to have disappeared from her life for a long time. It was a good thing to be away from your enemy for a long time.
Upon sight of Chu Jingnan, she raised her brows and wondered to herself,
It was almost December, the exam period for schools. Chu Jingnan was busy with helping the teachers set the test papers and collate the teaching materials, as well as set mock papers. He was also in charge of marking and assessing the papers. Hence, he was as busy as a bee and did not look for Wen Xinya for a long period of time.
Wen Xinya was dressed in a cream-colored woolen sweater, an almond-colored fur cardigan, and a cream-colored floral embroidered skirt. Standing under the sunlight, she looked graceful and beautiful.
Her outfit made her appear much more elegant and classy than she usually did.
Wen Xinya broke the silence and asked, “What are you here for, President Chu?” She did not wish to look at the person whom she detested.
Chu Jingnan snapped out of his trance and got a grip on his emotions that would arise whenever he saw Wen Xinya. “Oh, here’s what happened. Ever since Jiang Ruoyin withdrew from the Institute and Shen Mengting was expelled, there had been vacancies for their previous positions in the student union. Things have been tense amongst the committee members lately, so I’d like to invite you to join the student union.”
“You’re inviting me to join the student union?” Wen Xinya asked in a gentle yet sarcastic tone.
Chu Jingnan frowned slightly and said, “Yes, what do you think of that?”
In reality, Chu Jingnan had made the decision to invite Wen Xinya to join the student union partly because she was indeed very capable and could bring about lots of benefits to the student union. Another reason was that he wanted to keep Wen Xinya within close reach. After all, being the president of the student union meant that he would be extremely busy all the time, for he had to be involved in handling all the matters of the student union and take charge of disciplining all the students on behalf of the Institute. As a result, he could not find the free time to court Wen Xinya and date her. Hence, he thought that the best way to kill two birds with one stone was to get her to join the union so that he could build chemistry with her and hopefully, make her develop feelings for him while still getting work done.
Wen Xinya declined. “I’m not interested in joining the student union.”
Not only did she have lots of lessons to attend and hence, would have no time to fulfill the responsibilities of being part of the student union, but she also did not wish to face Chu Jingnan and Xia Ruya all the time.
“Aren’t you going to give it some consideration? After all, being in the student union is a rare opportunity which will allow you to learn lots of stuff. Besides, having a place in the union is a testament and a form of recognition of your capabilities. That should be something to be proud of!” said Chu Jingnan, who did not expect the ambitious Wen Xinya to turn him down. He thought that she would definitely seize the chance to join the union.
Wen Xinya answered calmly, “I don’t need to consider. You and I are different. You need to rely on the student union to prove your own capabilities and value, but I don’t. And that’s because I’m the daughter of the Wen Family. No one can intimidate or shake me, the heiress of the Wen Family.”
Chu Jingnan stared at Wen Xinya, who was beaming with confidence and pride while exuding a posh and elegant aura. He said, “You may be the mighty Miss Wen, but you’ve just reunited with the Wen Family and you’ve yet to secure a footing in the family or in the upper-class circle. By joining the union, you can further prove your abilities and impress the elite members of the upper-class circle. What’s not to like?”
Wen Xinya frowned and said, “There’d be plenty of chances for me to prove myself. It doesn’t have to be now, and I don’t necessarily have to rely on the student union.”
Wen Xinya thought to herself, finding something to be amiss. She would have never expected what Chu Jingnan’s hidden agenda really was. After all, she had always thought of him as a shameless and despicable man who would never be true to a woman.
Chu Jingnan asked in puzzlement, “Why would you let such a great opportunity slip?”
Wen Xinya’s patience was growing thinner and she started to sound impatient. “You may find it a great opportunity but I don’t.”
Chu Jingnan continued to probe, “Why? I can’t figure out just what disadvantages there may be.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath before saying, “President Chu, I have lessons to attend in the day and other enrichment classes to pursue in the night, to pick up some skills from my grandfather. Do you really think I’d have the time and energy to take on the responsibility of being a member of the student union?”
Jingnan had heard about Wen Xinya’s enrichment classes at the Mo Family home before. After hearing her words, he deduced that the rumors must have been true. Realizing that she indeed wouldn’t have the time, he conceded. “In that case, forget it. I’ll approach someone else instead.”
Wen Xinya nodded and turned around to leave, not wishing to speak to him any further.
Chu Jingnan yelled to stop her in her tracks. He said, “Wen Xinya, I saw you getting inside an expensive custom-made car more than just once. That car was not the blue Audi that your family’s chauffeur uses to pick you up.”
The custom-made car was just like a Rolls Royce, the world’s leading luxury car brand.
It was known to all that Rolls Royce cars were extremely exclusive and not all wealthy people could own one, for cars from that brand were mostly used by royals, governments, and well-known figures of the world.
He was told that the car that he saw was one-of-a-kind and could only be possessed by a true blue prestigious and influential tycoon.
Although the Wen Family was an elite and wealthy family that was well known in the upper-class society, they were far from being prestigious and influential.
He did not think that the Wen Family could own such an exclusive car, either.
“What do my affairs have to do with you?” Wen Xinya questioned with a cold smirk while glaring at him.
A frown creased Chu Jingnan’s forehead, unable to tell just what Wen Xinya’s expression meant.
