“Father, I’m going back to fetch some items that Grandpa is going to need during his hospitalization,” said Wen Xinya, who had already called Mother Wang to inform her to pack some necessities that Old Mr. Wen would need during his stay at the hospital. She initially wanted to get Tao to bring the items over to the hospital because she did not feel safe leaving Old Mr. Wen with Wen Haowen. However, now that Old Mrs. Wen was around, she could put her mind at ease.
Wen Haowen did not bother staying behind after finding out that Old Mr. Wen was alright. Hence, he decided to return to the office to finish up the remaining pile of work.
Wen Xinya turned around and left the hospital.
At this moment, her mobile phone began to ring. It was the mobile phone that belonged to her and Si Yiyan exclusively.
Wen Xinya answered the call. “Why have you called at this timing? Are you done with work yet?”
“I missed you, so I wanted to hear your voice,” Si Yiyan said in a gentle and tender voice. He sounded extremely alluring.
His voice was like a stream of water that gushed into her ears. She turned red bashfully, feeling as if he was just kissing her ear and rubbing his lips against her affectionately.
“Don’t you miss me?” Si Yiyan asked flirtatiously, seemingly waiting to hear her answer.
“I don’t. We’ve only been away from each other for less than three hours. What’s there to miss?” Wen Xinya answered with a grin, pouting her lips.
“But I miss you. I miss you whenever we’re away from each other, so much that I can’t focus on working at all,” Si Yiyan said in a deep and hoarse voice, full of love and affection.
He stared at the pile of documents in front of him, that was still as thick as it was before Wen Xinya left.
Shock was written all over Gu Yuehan’s face the moment he saw the pile of documents.
“Greedy pig. I can’t be bothered with you,” Wen Xinya said teasingly in a merry tone, unable to conceal her happiness at all.
Si Yiyan chuckled and asked, “Where are you now and what are you doing? Have you had lunch yet? I haven’t had mine. Would you like to have lunch together?”
Wen Xinya answered, “I’m at the hospital…”
Feeling rather concerned and worried, Si Yiyan asked in a high-pitched voice, “Why are you at the hospital? Are you feeling unwell?”
Knowing that he had gotten the wrong idea, Wen Xinya answered comfortingly, “Don’t worry, I’m not the one being hospitalized. It’s my grandfather… ”
She then explained everything that had happened to Si Yiyan.
“How’s your grandfather now?” Si Yiyan asked, feeling much more relieved. He began to find himself a little silly for worrying too much about her. After all, they had only been apart for three hours, what could possibly happen to her?
He shifted his gaze onto the newspaper on which there was a news report about a car accident, after which he found an excuse for himself to be worried. He told himself that his paranoia was not uncalled for since anything could happen.
“His life is already out of danger, but the doctor said that he can’t take such agitation anymore,” Wen Xinya explained, sounding a little depressed. She knew that a conflict would definitely arise within the Wen Family given how foolish and stubborn Wen Haowen was. To make matters worse, there was Ning Shuqian there to manipulate him.
Si Yiyan had no idea how to comfort her. He said in a mellower voice, “Don’t worry, nothing will happen to your grandfather. No one knows what might happen in the future. Perhaps, things might get better.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and said, “You’re right. I was overthinking and worrying too much.”
Si Yiyan said, “Don’t worry, I’ll be there for you no matter what happens.”
He would brave through all odds and go through thick and thin with her, and never abandon her.
Wen Xinya felt much more comforted by his words. It was as if he had given her peace and tranquility.
She initially didn’t want to try dating Si Yiyan. However, he managed to make her change her mind within a short period of time.
She said softly, “I have to go home now to grab some items that my grandpa might need.” Recalling what he said about lunch, she added, “You must make sure to eat well. Don’t forget to have your meals just because you’re too busy.”
“Got it!” Si Yiyan answered, thrilled to hear her words of concern, despite finding it a shame that they couldn’t dine together.
“Good, obedient children will be rewarded with candy.” Wen Xinya teased.
“Alright. I’ll remember to ask you for candy the next time we meet!” Si Yiyan answered, chuckling. His voice was low and rumbling yet alluring.
Wen Xinya tightened her grip on her mobile phone and turned red instantly, well aware that “candy” did not refer to actual candy. Whenever they kissed, he would often whisper affectionately into her ear, “Xinya, you’re so sweet!”
Si Yiyan stopped teasing her and said, “Li Mengjie has already sent the advertisement video as well as the relevant information to me. I’ve also found a producer for you. We’re not behind schedule, so you don’t have to worry.”
It was the only productive thing that he had done ever since Wen Xinya left.
Wen Xinya asked in surprise, “Didn’t she say that the information would only be ready tomorrow? Why is it out so soon? She only took a few hours.”
“Your personal assistant is a very capable and competent talent. He’s perfected everything, including the product packaging, the information about the Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as the renovation and product data,” Si Yiyan said in awe of Yan Shaoqing.
Wen Xinya was shocked to hear how competent Yan Shaoqing was. Although she had never doubted his abilities, she did not expect him to be that efficient. She could not help but feel proud after hearing Si Yiyan sing praises about Yan Shaoqing, for it simply proved that she had good taste.
“You’ve found yourself a treasure. Such talents are rare—even the high-post executives of major corporations don’t have such competency. I’m actually envious of you,” said Si Yiyan, seemingly having sensed her emotions.
Wen Xinya crinkled her nose and grinned smugly. “Of course. I have good judgment.”
