Xia Ruya finally shrugged off the surrounding reporters and got inside the taxi. “Sir, please lose the cars tailing us.”
The taxi driver started the engine and zoomed off like an arrow.
The tension in Xia Ruya’s body was alleviated and she leaned back against the backseat, panting heavily.
She had already settled the administrative procedures to get discharged secretly last night and made sure that there were no reporters waiting outside the hospital. Hence, she reckoned that the reporters must have made their way to the hospital after being tipped off.
She was certain that the person who plotted everything against her was Wen Xinya.
Although she felt a strong urge to scream and cry when she was being surrounded by the reporters earlier on, she curbed it and stopped herself from doing so. All that humiliation… was nothing compared to the pathetic state she hand ended up in.
She felt as if a million daggers were being pierced through her heart.
Having recognized her right away, the taxi driver asked, “Lass, you’re Xia Ruya, aren’t you? The illegitimate daughter of the Xia Family who’s being reported on the news now!”
The taxi driver scanned her from head to toe, his eyes full of disdain.
“You… you’ve gotten the wrong person!” Xia Ruya denied vehemently, hanging her head low. She froze in shock, feeling incredibly embarrassed and humiliated. His words were like daggers to her heart, making her quiver uncontrollably in pain.
“Impossible! How could I possibly get the wrong person!?!” The driver retorted, keeping his eyes fixed on her. He then grabbed a magazine and handed it to Xia Ruya. “Look, that’s you on the cover. I didn’t get the wrong person.”
Xia Ruya glanced at the magazine, flabbergasted and appalled. It was a cheap and lowly tabloid.
Her face was splashed across the cover.
Xia Ruya could not help but feel disgusted by the cover of the tabloid, unable to bring herself to continue reading on.
It was a digitally altered photo.
The driver’s eyes glistened and he asked, “Lass, you’re still underage, aren’t you!?! The news said that you’re only fifteen years old.”
The driver scanned her again from head to toe with a look of lust in his eyes.
Xia Ruya had sunk into a trance and was brooding over her sappy emotions. She was too preoccupied to notice that he was staring at her. However, she could vaguely sense that he was staring at her intently, making her feel extremely uncomfortable.
However, she did not give it much thought, because it was not the first time that she felt that way ever since the news of her scandal broke out. In the eyes of the public, she was a loose, wanton girl who was shameless and promiscuous. Hence, she had gotten used to being insulted and regarded with disdain.
“You’re only fifteen years old and yet, you’re already so well-endowed. What a natural-born seductress. You were meant to seduce and entice man,” said the driver, who kept stealing glances at her before fixing his gaze on her chest.
Due to the fact that she had already been recognized by the reporters, she changed out of the disgustingly pungent shirt that she had bought from the janitor as soon as she got inside the car.
At this moment, Xia Ruya was dressed in a body-hugging sweater which accentuated her curves.
As pale as a sheet, Xia Ruya turned around periodically, only to see that the reporters were chasing her frantically.
“Lass, why don’t you play with me? I have great technique, and even those hostesses at the nightclubs enjoy being in bed with me,” the driver suggested, staring at her chest lecherously while swallowing his saliva. He was greatly aroused by her figure.
Hostesses at the nightclub…
Xia Ruya was beyond humiliated and ashamed.
Xia Ruya turned red with embarrassment after hearing the derogative remarks. She bit her lip with a sullen expression on her face. All she wanted was to shake off the reporters and get out of the taxi as soon as possible.
However, the driver was even more enticed. Unable to resist his urges, he moved his hand towards Xia Ruya while keeping his other hand on the steering wheel.
Xia Ruya instinctively retracted the hand that she was resting on her lap.
Her reaction caused the driver to guffaw and grab her tender hand with his coarse one.
Unable to take the violation, Xia Ruya shrugged his hand away and slammed her hand against the car door frantically. “Stop the car. Pull over, let me get off. I want to get out of the car. Pull over…”
“Dream on! You’ll have to satisfy me first,” said the driver, who turned the steering wheel and pulled over.
Xia Ruya only realized now that she had shrugged off the reporters, and that the driver had already driven to a dilapidated and remote place. She stared at the driver’s sinister expression and felt fear and terror. Cases and reports of passengers being raped and then killed by taxi drivers flashed through her mind.
“What… what are you trying to do?” Xia Ruya screamed in terror, her pupils constricting and dilating.
The driver guffawed loudly, his small eyes forming a straight line as his lips curled into a lecherous smile. He then extended his hand and began groping her thigh.
“Ah! Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me… you’re committing a crime. I can sue you,” Xia Ruya yelled at the top of her lungs. She then grabbed the magazine and threw it at the driver.
“You’re just a cheap and shameless slut. Why are you trying to act all classy and virtuous? Go ahead and sue me if you can. Let’s see who’s going to get embarrassed.” The driver retorted, before giving her a tight slap. He was not afraid of being sued at all, for he was certain that no one would believe her.
The impact from the slap gave her a dizzy spell and it dawned upon her that no one would believe that she was innocent, for her reputation had already been ruined.
“Let go of me, please, just let me off. I can give you lots of money and ensure that you live a carefree life. You’d no longer have to work as a taxi driver…” Xia Ruya pleaded while the driver allowed his hands to roam freely around her body. She could not help but feel incredibly disgusted and nauseous. She twitched, filled with hopelessness.
