Chapter 379: Your Aunt Ning Is Kindhearted
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Haowen headed straight to the office early in the morning. However, he could not focus at the thought of Wen Xinya being related to what happened to Ning Shuqian.
Less than two hours later, his assistant returned with the investigation report. Staring at the content, he turned as pale as a sheet and immediately finished up all his work. By the time he did, it was already the afternoon. He grabbed his coat and made his way to the car park before setting off to the Wen Family’s mansion in his car.
Wen Haowen strode into the living room. Upon sight of him, the servants hurriedly shunned and made way from him, for fear that he would take it out on them.
Wen Xinya was in the midst of speaking to Mrs. Wang in the living room. She exclaimed, “Father, you’re home!”
Wen Haowen glowered at her and asked, “Tell me, did you go to the hospital yesterday? Were you with Shen Mengting?”
Wen Xinya instantly knew that Ning Shuqian must have been the one who complained to him about getting stabbed by Shen Mengting. She knew that the truth would be out sooner or later and that no explanation she made would convince him.
Noticing that she was remaining quiet with her head hung low, Wen Haowen asked, “Do you have something to do with your Aunt Ning getting stabbed by Shen Mengting?”
Wen Haowen looked up and stared at Wen Haowen in bewilderment. She had turned as pale as a sheet and teared up. “Father, is that what Aunt Ning said?”
Wen Haowen would be overwhelmed with resentment whenever she saw the look of innocence on her face. “Don’t pretend to be innocent. Your Aunt Ning is too kindhearted. She’s been so tolerant and forgiving towards you. How could she possibly tell me about this?”
“Aunt Ning is kindhearted? Does that mean I’m vicious and cunning?” Wen Xinya retorted, feeling as if she had heard the greatest joke ever. If Ning Shuqian was kindhearted, there would be no vicious people on this earth. Extremely tolerant… as if!
She suddenly felt sympathetic towards Wen Haowen for having to face such a scheming and hypocritical woman for more than a decade. He had no idea that he was being manipulated like a puppet at all.
Noticing that she was staring at him in contempt, Wen Haowen said with a sullen expression on his face, “Stop trying to make excuses for yourself. I’ve already sent someone to look into it. You went to the sanatorium to look for Shen Mengting’s mother and you were also the one who sent them to the hospital because Shen Mengting’s mother had a seizure.”
Noticing the change in Wen Haowen’s expression and the look of fury on his face, she felt extremely embarrassed and pathetic for having a father like him.
Seething with anger, Wen Haowen questioned, “Tell me. Were you the one who caused your Aunt Ning to be stabbed by Shen Mengting? When did you even get yourself acquainted with Shen Mengting? Didn’t you say that she stabbed you in school? Were you just lying then? You’re still so young and yet are already full of lies. You’re such a vicious person!”
Wen Haowen’s relationship with his father had become strained ever since Wen Xinya reunited with the Wen Family. He had also been facing lots of trouble and problems at the office. He was certain that Wen Xinya was the one stirring trouble.
Staring at him, Wen Xinya said, “Father, since you’ve checked everything so clearly, did you find out that Shen Mengting was stabbing Aunt Ning like crazy and that I was the one who risked my life to stop her from continuing?”
“What did you say?” Wen Haowen questioned agitatedly while staring at her with his eyes wide open.
Wen Xinya stared at him and asked, “Didn’t Aunt Ning tell you that I was the one who saved her?”
Staring at her coldly, he asked in apprehension, “Why would you be so kind?”
Wen Haowen did not believe her words at all. If she genuinely wanted to save Shuqian, why would Shuqian still get injured?
“Everyone in the hospital knows about this, and there are surveillance cameras that can testify for me as well. Father, you may call the hospital and find out if I’m really that kind!”
Wen Xinya had expected him to doubt her from the start because he had never considered her to be his daughter at all. To him, she was just a reminder of his mistake, which caused his former wife to go into premature labor and lose her life as a result. Cheating on Wen Xinya’s mother was a mistake that he was ashamed of, a mistake that her presence would forever remind him of. It was a sin that he hated to admit he had committed.
However, Wen Haowen had no choice but to believe her since she sounded extremely confident. But so what if she had really saved Shuqian? It was a fact that Shen Mengting had stabbed Ning Shuqian, and it was also a fact that Wen Xinya was related to Shen Mengting.
Wen Xinya looked up at Wen Haowen, whose face was growing more and more sullen. “Father, if you still don’t believe me, we can question Aunt Ning. I shall ask her why she ended up in Block A when the gynecologist is clearly in Block C.”
Wen Haowen was shocked speechless. Staring at Wen Xinya, he was certain that she was telling the truth.
Wen Xinya said with a tinge of sadness, “I don’t know why you’re so sure that Aunt Ning’s incident has something to do with me when Shen Mengting is clearly the one who’s mentally unsound and attacked Aunt Ning in a moment of irrationality. Shen Mengting has already been sent to the asylum.”
Wen Haowen was certain of what had happened, for he had already inquired about it from the police. He had even stepped in and intervened with Shen Mengting’s admission to the asylum. “Even if she’s mentally unsound, why did she stab your Aunt Ning out of so many people there?”
Being overly-paranoid and overconfident, he did not find it to be a coincidence at all.
Finding his question to be extremely amusing, Wen Xinya looked at Wen Haowen and said, “I’d really like to know why, too. Father, why don’t you ask Shen Mengting? She kept screaming ‘Ning Shuqian, you’re going to die a horrible death!’ when stabbing Aunt Ning yesterday. I’d like to know what Aunt Ning did to Shen Mengting to make her so agitated, too.”
Wen Haowen was angered by the smug expression on her face. He grimaced and walked towards Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya took a step back and glared at him coldly. “Father… do you think I’d still let you hit and berate me like you did in the past?”
Staring at her puerile face which resembled Mo Yunyao’s beautiful features, he hit the roof and hollered. “Wen Xinya, you wretched lass! I’m going to teach you a lesson today!”
