As soon as Si Yiyan reached the hospital, he was greeted with the sight of Wen Xinya leaning against the icy cold wall of the hospital with a deadpan expression. She looked extremely pale and her eyes were glassed over as well. He could not help but feel upset at the sight of the frail and feeble Wen Xinya.
He hurriedly walked towards her and pulled her into his embrace, wishing he could give her all his warmth.
“Si Yiyan, why are you here?” Wen Xinya asked in a shaky yet coquettish voice. She wrapped her arms tightly around his waist and rubbed her face affectionately against his chest, as meek as a lamb.
“I tried to call you so many times, but you wouldn’t answer. I was worried about you,” he answered. Words were not enough to describe how arduous of a time he had and the anxiety he felt while he was unable to reach her… He actually forgot that there was a GPS tracking system embedded within the mobile phone that he had gifted her with, and instead tried to call her over and over again like a dimwit.
“I set my mobile phone to silent mode, sorry!” Wen Xinya answered while he tightened his grip on her waist. Clearly, he had been extremely worried.
Si Yiyan lowered his head and kissed her sideburns with tender affection.
Wen Xinya felt extremely pampered by his kiss and released all her pent up emotions that exploded within her. She lowered her voice and said hoarsely, “Si Yiyan, Shen Mengting stabbed Ning Shuqian. I don’t know what will happen to her. Her life has withered before it even got to bloom.”
What happened to Shen Mengting reminded her of herself in her previous lifetime, where Ning Shuqian had ruined her life. She constantly compared her incarnate from the previous lifetime to the present day Shen Mengting. In her previous lifetime, Wen Xinya was weak and helpless and constantly craved for love and affection from others. Yet, she had long lost the courage to fight against fate.
Si Yiyan knew that those were just the emotions she felt at the time and not the sympathy she felt for Shen Mengting. Hence, he decided to hug her gently in a bid to give her some comfort.
“Si Yiyan, I feel really cold. Let’s go home!”
“Sure, let’s go home.” Si Yiyan then picked Wen Xinya up in his arms and strode out of the hospital.
Placing her hands gently on his shoulder, Wen Xinya felt extremely at ease.
Sensing that she was at peace, Si Yiyan looked down at her beautiful face and eyes which were full of purity and innocence.
He suddenly discovered that she had gotten much lighter than before. He was reminded of the night where she dozed off in his embrace like a meek little cat. She was wrapped in his arms like a tiny bean.
“Xinya, you’re so light! You should gain some weight,” said Si Yiyan, who felt that she was too thin for her own good. Whenever he hugged her, he would feel indescribable anxiety, for she could not fill up his embrace at all. It was as if he had to hug her extremely tightly in order to feel her presence.
Wen Xinya said in bewilderment, “I’ve already gained lots of weight ever since I returned to the Wen Family. I’m just right. How am I too light?”
She had fully recuperated and was no longer as gaunt as she used to be. Her proportions were also perfect, and Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan envied her greatly for her beautiful figure.
“You’re as light as a feather,” Si Yiyan remarked, staring at her bright and luminescent eyes.
Wen Xinya held his gaze and found him to be extremely mesmerizing and dreamy. “How heavy am I supposed to be?”
“You should weigh more than you do in my heart!”
He abruptly discovered that he could not measure it and didn’t put it into numbers at all.
Wen Xinya was at a loss for words for a rebuttal. Looking into Si Yiyan’s mesmerizing eyes, she could see her own crystal clear reflection…
“How much do I weigh in your heart? How much do I matter?” Wen Xinya asked in a sweet and gleeful voice, although her throat was a little dry.
Rubbing his forehead against hers affectionately, Si Yiyan answered, “For now, you weigh much more than I can measure.”
Wen Xinya pounded his chest playfully and exclaimed coquettishly, “You tricked me! You’ll despise me if I become a fatso!”
Si Yiyan said solemnly, “I won’t. I never will.”
Wen Xinya answered, “Si Yiyan, do you think we knew each other in our previous lifetime?”
Si Yiyan observed her expressions carefully out of habit. He would give each and every word of hers some thought before answering, for fear that he would upset her.
Wen Xinya urged. “Hurry and answer me!”
Si Yiyan answered softly, “Yes! I probably owed you life in our previous lifetime. That’s why Heaven is punishing me now and making me repay you using the rest of my life.”
Wen Xinya smiled. The scene of Shen Mengting stabbing Ning Shuqian would forever be etched deeply in her memory.
She was at Jiayuan Club when she was drugged with an aphrodisiac. Before she lost her rationality, she tried to flee, during which she ran into a man who exuded a cool and menacing aura. It was as if she had seen a straw to clutch at. She hugged him from behind and pleaded softly. “Save me, please. Save me, take me away…”
The man turned around and flung her onto the ground relentlessly. He stared at her from above and she appeared extremely disheveled and unkempt. Despite the layer of the lens, she could still see his bright eyes.
At that instant, she fell silent and stopped pleading.
She then watched him leave. He had a slender figure and a dashing charm.
Unlike him, she was completely destroyed.
The blurry figure in her head matched that of Si Yiyan’s. It turns out she had already known him in their previous lifetime.
“Si Yiyan, will you ever abandon me?” She wanted to know if he would leave her in the lurch ruthlessly like he did in their previous lifetime.
Si Yiyan answered, “No!”
His tone was firm and he did not hesitate at all. It was a sincere vow that left a strong impression on Wen Xinya.
