Ning Shuqian rushed to the emergency rescue room to see that Wen Xinya was sitting on the bench. She froze in shock and felt a sudden urge to run away.
Ning Shuqian waved to her and asked, “Xin… Xinya, why are you here?”
Staring at her coldly, Wen Xinya asked, “Aunt Ning, I should be asking you that instead?” She then shifted her gaze to the door of the operating room.
Peeved by her expression, Ning Shuqian explained, “I’m here for a pre-pregnancy checkup.”
Wen Xinya stared at her apprehensively and asked, “But this is the emergency unit of Block A. You should be going for your checkup in Block C, instead. Aunt Ning, this is not your first visit to the hospital, is it? You should know the way. Why are you at the emergency unit instead?”
At a complete loss for an explanation, Ning Shuqian scanned her surroundings, only to discover that Shen Mengting was not around.
Remaining calm and composed, Wen Xinya glared at her and asked, “Aunt Ning, what are you looking for? Are you looking for Shen Mengting? Oh, she’s handling the procedures now and will be here in a while. I almost forgot that Shen Mengting is your niece. Since her mother is undergoing emergency rescue, it’s only right that you come and visit them.”
A sullen expression formed on Ning Shuqian’s face and she wished she could rip her mouth apart. “Xinya, don’t you spout any nonsense. I’m not related to Shen Mengting at all.”
Wen Xinya stared at her in disdain and said, “If you’re not related to her at all, how do you explain those reports on the media? Are they really just rumors? Is Yuya’s father really not Shen Mengting’s uncle?”
Glaring daggers at Wen Xinya, Ning Shuqian said, “The media just loves making false reports. There was lots of scandalous news about you in the past too, weren’t there?”
Wen Xinya retorted. “Aunt Ning, how magnanimous of you to be able to tolerate all those nasty captions and false reports on the news. I wouldn’t be able to tolerate having my reputation ruined if I were you.”
“They are just false rumors. The reports are going to die down soon enough. Those reporters are getting more and more brazen,” said Ning Shuqian, who was greatly infuriated by Wen Xinya’s words.
She could not help but feel frustrated and resent Wen Xinya even more!
Wen Xinya chuckled and said, “You’re right, Aunt Ning. However, such reports are going to affect the Wen Family’s reputation, too.”
Ning Shuqian was at a loss for words. Wen Xinya’s sarcastic remark had greatly angered her. When Wen Xinya faced castigations by the public and media, she had also mocked and sneered at her. Yet, the tables had turned so quickly.
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and sneered. “I almost forgot that Grandpa didn’t openly acknowledge you as Madam Wen. Regardless of how controversial the news about you may be, the Wen Family won’t be affected.”
Ning Shuqian’s face stiffened and she glared at Wen Xinya, who resembled Mo Yunyao greatly. She possessed grace, beauty, and poise. She detested Wen Xinya as much as she detested Mo Yunyao.
It was because of Mo Yunyao that the Wen Family did not acknowledge her.
It was because of Wen Xinya that her daughter had been sent overseas.
She was filled with resentment that challenged her rationality. She was on the verge of losing control of her emotions and felt a strong urge to burst into hysterics.
Seemingly reminded of something, Wen Xinya glared at Ning Shuqian and asked, “By the way, Aunt Ning, does Father know that you’re here?”
Ning Shuqian felt as if she had been strangled. She squinted at Wen Xinya menacingly, as if she wanted to devour her.
Wen Xinya sneered. “Aunt Ning, why are you looking at me? I’m just worried that you’re here to visit Shen Mengting and her mother secretly. If Father knows about this, he’s going to think that you’re still harboring feelings for your old flame!”
“Bitch!” Ning Shuqian screeched at the top of her lungs, her wrinkles furrowing deep into her face. With a threatening look on her face, she raised her hand and swung it at Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya grabbed her hand and chuckled. “Hey, look how disobedient your hand is. If you can’t keep it in place, I’ll help you teach it a lesson.”
Wen Xinya tightened her grip on Ning Shuqian’s wrist, causing the latter to be overwhelmed with an excruciating pain which made her face twist into a grimace. All of a sudden, she heard a loud pop and she was hit with yet another wave of pain. She felt as if her wrist had been broken.
“Ah!” She shrieked in terror and stumbled forward before collapsing to the ground. Holding her wrist in pain, she asked, “What did you do to me? Did you break my wrist?”
Wen Xinya guffawed and said with much sarcasm, “Don’t worry. I wouldn’t do such a terrible thing. It’s just dislocated. I’m just teaching you a lesson. Keep your hands to yourself from now on. Don’t commit such outrageous things again.”
Ning Shuqian’s eyes widened in shock and glowered at her. “Wen Xinya, you shameless wretch. How dare you injure me!?!”
Staring at her condescendingly from above, Wen Xinya barked. “If you dare to hit me, I’ll dare to injure you, too! By the way… I suggest you keep your mouth shut. Otherwise, your wrist won’t be the only thing that hurts.”
Despite being hurt by Wen Xinya, Ning Shuqian had no choice but to suck it up and suffer in silence. If she were to complain to Wen Haowen, Wen Xinya would definitely rat on her to him.
“How dare you!” Ning Shuqian screeched, gritting her teeth in anger and wishing she could leap forward to break Wen Xinya’s neck. However, she could not help but feel irritated at the sight of how smug and composed Wen Xinya was.
Wen Xinya sneered. “Why wouldn’t I dare? What else can you do to me except turn my father against me? However, I don’t think he’d buy your words if he knows what you’re here for.”
Ning Shuqian scowled at Wen Xinya, wishing she could destroy her.
