Chapter 440: What Is Xia Ruya Doing in a Forensic Hospital?
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya lied down on the couch sluggishly and stared at Xia Ruya’s post on Weibo. Upon sight of the comment written by a user who claimed to be a taxi driver, she could not help but think to herself,
She then came across a post that was posted by Xia Ruya’s personal Weibo account, regarding some information about the press conference. She could not help but feel astounded.
Wen Xinya was filled with questions and nervousness. Xia Ruya had always been smart and brainy. Perhaps, she could really clear her reputation?
“What are you thinking about? You’re so preoccupied,” Si Yiyan asked, placing a cup of hot chocolate on the coffee table in front of her before sitting down beside her on the couch.
Wen Xinya frowned and said, “I saw a post on Weibo just now. Xia Ruya is planning to hold a press conference in a public plaza.”
Noticing the sullen expression on her face and the icy-cold gaze in her eyes, Si Yiyan said, “Don’t worry! There’s no way she can restore her reputation this time.”
Wen Xinya looked at Si Yiyan apprehensively, though she did trust him. “Why would you say that? I’ve dealt with Xia Ruya several times before and she never fails to get herself out of trouble regardless of what happens. How are you so sure that she won’t be able to clear her name this time?”
Si Yiyan answered, “My people saw her entering a forensic hospital.”
Staring at him in bewilderment, Wen Xinya asked, “What was Xia Ruya doing at the forensic hospital?”
She could not figure out just why Xia Ruya would do that. Neither did she see the link between that and the press conference.
Si Yiyan held her in his embrace and said softly, “If I’m not wrong, she must be there to get a test report to prove that her hymen is still intact and that she is still a virgin.”
The forensic hospital was a place where one could get a full-body report. There was no reason for Xia Ruya to be there at all.
Wen Xinya’s eyes widened in shock and she said in disbelief, “She must be out of her mind. Why would she get her virginity verified? Xia Ruya treasures her reputation more than anything else. She definitely wouldn’t use that to prove her innocence.”
She knew Xia Ruya too well. Xia Ruya would at most pretend to be innocent and try to gain sympathy by holding a press conference and clarifying herself. She’d let the media become powerless and unable to attack her or accuse her of having a guilty conscience. She definitely wouldn’t ruin her own reputation by getting a virginity report.
Si Yiyan said, “Desperate times call for desperate measures.”
Still in disbelief, Wen Xinya said, “I don’t believe it. I doubt she’d do something like that. After all, it’d be bad for a woman’s reputation, and reputation means the most to her.”
Si Yiyan raised her chin gently and gazed at her. “If she can’t clear her name, how is she going to have a reputation? Even though her reputation has been tarnished, she can restore it so long as she proves her innocence. If she can’t prove her innocence, her reputation will forever be destroyed.”
“You’re right. I just failed to realize that fact. Xia Ruya has lost her reputation. If she still values it, she’ll probably choose to prove her innocence and clear her name in order to salvage her image,” said Wen Xinya, who had been enlightened by Si Yiyan’s words. She instantly felt much better and optimistic. All her knowledge of Xia Ruya was based on what she knew about her in the previous lifetime. However, Xia Ruya had always been a victor in that lifetime and had never been in such a pathetic state.
Noticing that her eyes had lit up, Si Yiyan continued, “I’m guessing that she’ll make an issue about her innocence. However, I didn’t expect that she’d go to the forensic hospital to get her virginity verified in order to prove her innocence. She’s much smarter and driven than I thought.”
Wen Xinya panted, feeling extremely threatened. She had never seen such an intelligent, resolute and driven Xia Ruya before. It was as if she had finally realized that her knowledge of Xia Ruya was only the tip of the iceberg and that there was much more to her below her pretentious facade. She could not help but feel a little suffocated.
Staring at the sullen expression on her face, Si Yiyan continued, “This solution may do her more harm than good, but doing that will prevent others from making false allegations about her again. Otherwise, she’d definitely take legal actions to prove her innocence.”
Having understood what he meant, Wen Xinya said, “However, she can’t deny that she had indeed shown up at the nightclub. Besides, she was the one who tried to harm me at Zhou Tianyu’s birthday party first but ended up getting herself in trouble. Hence, she can’t explain that since there were indeed photos of her embarrassing herself at the party. This virginity test report is going to become the trump card that will aid her in undermining all false accusations against her and getting rid of the people who malign her.”
Si Yiyan chimed in. “It may seem like a bad move on the surface, but it’d prevent her reputation from getting ruined any further. As long as she can prove her innocence, she’ll be able to make up for all the humiliation that she has suffered.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath, shocked and slightly intimidated by how scheming Xia Ruya really was. “However, isn’t she afraid that everyone would discriminate against her after everything that she has done? After all… getting a virginity test report done means that she’d have to strip down to nothing. It’s shameful and humiliating as well. Besides, this is the first time that something like this has happened in the city and it’d be hard for everyone to forget about it.”
She could not understand why Xia Ruya would resort to such a method. She truly… could not believe it at all.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “So what? She’d get to prove her innocence. She’ll do anything in order to defend herself and clear her name.”
Women like Xia Ruya wouldn’t mind being cruel to themselves and suffering the humiliation inflicted by others. Even Si Yiyan was appalled by how scheming she could be, let alone Wen Xinya.
Unable to believe it, Wen Xinya said, “But… ”
Si Yiyan interjected. “Don’t you think she’s ruining her own life by doing this?”
Wen Xinya nodded. She could imagine how much criticism Xia Ruya would face from others for exposing such intimate details about herself.
