Wen Xinya arrived at Lishan Mansion to see that the private doctor was in the midst of helping Si Yiyan check his wounds.
Si Yiyan’s wound had already healed completely, though the bruise on his fair arm had yet to dissipate. It truly resembled a centipede. A frown creased on Wen Xinya’s forehead.
“The wound is healing well, and it’ll be fine once the bruise dissipates too. However, it might leave a horrible scar because of the deep wound and the stitches.”
Si Yiyan pulled his sleeve down to show the ugly scar. “Since I’m alright, I’ve really troubled you this time, Doctor Zhang.”
“You’re welcome, Ninth Young Master.” Doctor Zhang would come by to visit Si Siyan almost every day, and he had realized that Si Yiyan would make him leave whenever Wen Xinya was there. Hence, he picked up his medicine briefcase and left.
After the doctor left, Si Yiyan pulled Wen Xinya onto his lap and held her in his arms. “The doctor said that my wound has almost healed. Don’t worry so much anymore.”
She was more worried about his wound than he was, and had been taking care of him meticulously, helping him change his wounds, feeding him medicine and brewing him herbal soups. Although he truly enjoyed the treatment, he did not want her to continue being worried and tense because of him.
Wen Xinya grazed her finger gently over his wound, which had an uneven surface. “This scab will definitely leave an ugly scar.”
The scar had left a deep trace in her heart. It was the very testament of his devotion towards her, which made him risk his life in order to save her.
Si Yiyan grabbed her fingers and kissed them gently. “It’s just a tiny scar. All men have scars. You don’t understand the glory that scars bring to men.”
Men were all proud of the scars on their bodies, for they were proof of their acts of bravery during fights and other scuffles.
Wen Xinya burst into laughter after hearing his words. “You were slashed by a knife! What’s there to be proud of? It’s just a testament of your excessive obsession with love, which compelled you to save the damsel in distress.”
Si Yiyan raised his brows and answered, “Don’t you think that that’s a man’s pride? How can one be called a man if he can’t even protect the woman he loves?”
Wen Xinya glared at him and said, “I can never outargue you.”
Si Yiyan looked at her beautiful, sparkling eyes which resembled that of morning dew. They were clear, radiant and mesmerizing.
Wen Xinya looked up and held his gaze. “Si Yiyan, you…”
Si Yiyan pinned her onto the couch and got on top of her, seemingly gaining control of her world all of a sudden. He then pressed his lips onto hers gently with great passion.
Wen Xinya gazed at him with eyes glassed over. His grace and suaveness aroused her greatly, and she was instantly filled with lust. She murmured slowly, “Lucifer is a fallen angel who has become the devil… ”
They were taking whiffs of each other’s breaths and their tongues intertwined with immense passion.
Si Yiyan kissed her chin gently and recited the Shurangama Mantra. “Love and lust are an equal exchange, and our love is unforgettable.”
Wen Xinya giggled coquettishly, her rosy lips resembling a blossoming flower. “Lust is the root of evil and is as dangerous as menacing beasts…”
Si Yiyan bit her lip, finding her to be extremely irresistible. “The Sutra Of Perfect Enlightenment says that everything begins with life, and everything stems from, love, lust, and greed. They’re all subjected to karma, and there’s a reason and cause for everything. Love is the reason for life and hence, lust is the basis of the three realms and love is the foundation of the six great divisions in the wheel of karma.”
Wen Xinya said, “If you don’t renounce your lustful thoughts, you will not be able to get out of the dust!”
Si Yiyan sat up and whispered into her ear, “Ever since history, there have been lots of heroes who fell hopelessly in love and became slaves for love and demons for lust. I’m just… one of the many.”
Wen Xinya snorted with laughter and said, “Si Yiyan, turns out that’s all you got from learning the teachings of Buddha!”
Si Yiyan grinned and said, “Legend has it that Buddha has placed all of his ten thousand forms in the world. If I can attain fruition and Nirvana, I’ll be willing to become Buddha and achieve enlightenment.”
Wen Xinya chuckled at his self-righteousness when defending his lust.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “However, I’m not as determined as Buddha. I don’t have such a strong willpower to lay off lust and love. In fact… I’ve accidentally plunged into the trap of lust and love, leaving me with no chance of escaping.”
Wen Xinya stopped laughing and placed a finger on his lip. “Si Yiyan, I may not believe in Buddha, but I have great respect for Buddhist teachings. So, don’t crack jokes about Buddhism.”
“Okay!” Si Yiyan pulled her fingers away and gazed at her intently. In fact, he was not cracking jokes about Buddha and had merely used Buddhist teachings to prove his love for her. “By the way, I haven’t got to congratulate you yet. Lanxin Cosmetics is going to open for business soon.”
He had always known about her ambitions. Firstly, it was the investment company, followed by Lanxin Cosmetics. She had always been very careful and had great foresight. Her purpose of establishing the investment company was to build her wealth and accumulate enough funds to kick start her true career, Lanxin Cosmetics. Due to the fact that skincare was closely related to cosmetic products, cosmetics was her first step towards the health supplements industry.
He was excited to see her growth and progress!
Wen Xinya smiled and asked, “The opening is tomorrow. Isn’t it a little too early to be congratulating me now?”
Si Yiyan said, “It’s not, because I know you’ll definitely achieve success.”
Grinning widely from ear to ear, she pecked him on the cheek and said, “This is your reward for having faith in me.”
Si Yiyan grabbed her beautiful chin, not allowing her to leave. He then moved his lips closer towards hers and said flirtatiously, “I prefer it when you kiss my…” He then kissed her on the lips tenderly.
Wen Xinya quickly pushed him away and chided. “You’re going overboard! I’m not going to talk to you anymore. I have to go check on the tonic soup that I’m brewing in the kitchen.”
