Chapter 445: Shameless Lecher!
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
On the following day, the media published reports about Xia Ruya’s press conference and the results of her virginity test, causing public outrage. After all, it was an unprecedented piece of news.
The news reports had sparked a variety of reactions amongst the members of the public, all of whom expressed their differing opinions about the matter.
There was an intense uproar.
Wen Xinya sneered and read the news about Xia Ruya exposing her virginity test report on the newspapers and magazines.
Si Yiyan grabbed the magazine from her hands, after which she snatched it back from him. Glowering at him, she hollered. “You’re not allowed to read it! Be careful not to get a sty.”
To her surprise, Si Yiyan did not look at it and instead threw it right into the dustbin. “There’s nothing to see. These are just nonsensical magazines.”
Wen Xinya instantly smiled sweetly and radiantly at Si Yiyan.
“It’s better to read this!” said Si Yiyan, who magically whipped out an exquisitely-packaged box and handed it to Wen Xinya.
“Why did you buy me a present for no reason?” Wen Xinya asked, grabbing the gift box from him.
Si Yiyan loved buying her gifts. Although she found that gifts were more meaningful only when given during special occasions, she felt as if every single day was an occasion after getting together with Si Yiyan. He would often gift her with clothes, accessories, shoes, and bags.
She often found it too extravagant and over the top.
However, she had to admit that she was thrilled whenever he gave her gifts.
Upon sight of her pouting lips, Si Yiyan smiled and said, “Open the gift and see if you like it!”
Wen Xinya removed the packaging in no time, only to discover that it was a bottle of perfume. “Why are you giving me perfume? Don’t you know that I don’t ever use perfume?”
She was currently using the moisturizer that Du Ruo had concocted for her. It could double as a perfume as well. Most importantly, it could retain the skin’s youth and keep it healthy.
Hence, she had never used perfume.
Si Yiyan pulled her into his embrace and took a whiff of her scent by burying his head in her neck. “I know, you smell heavenly even without perfume.”
Her unique scent never failed to get him enticed.
Wen Xinya pushed his head away and rebuked. “Hooligan!”
Although she did not use perfume, she still felt glad to receive it as a gift from Si Yiyan.
Si Yiyan kissed her tender ear gently and said charmingly, “Your heavenly scent is mild, yet alluring and enticing.”
Turning red with embarrassment, Wen Xinya said, “Shameless lecher!”
Shaking his head, Si Yiyan retorted. “No, no! This is called being romantic. If giving you a compliment makes me a shameless lecher, lots of refined gentlemen would become lechers by your standards.”
Wen Xinya glared at him quietly. After all, lots of refined gentlemen had written romantic poems ever since history.
Si Yiyan continued, “Li Bai has written three such poems and Du Pu has also written about a prostitute. One of the lines of the poem goes, ‘Wang Zhao is alluringly beautiful and her skin is smooth like porcelain.’ Look… they’re all so flirtatious with their poems about other women. Unlike them… I’m complimenting my woman. I ignore other women instead. Aren’t I far more respectable than them?”
Wen Xinya burst into laughter.
Si Yiyan drawled. “The primordial Greeks say that perfume is a gift from God to humans, which can get rid of all inauspiciousness. So much has happened recently. I hope that this bottle of perfume can get rid of the gloominess within you.”
Wen Xinya was extremely touched by him. It had indeed been an eventful and happening period of time. She had expended lots of energy trying to deal with the matter. Although things were not set in stone yet, there was at least an outcome for some of the matters.
She opened the bottle of perfume gently and took a whiff of the pleasant and refreshing floral scent which was to her liking. “It’s epiphyllum-scented. There isn’t any other perfume that smells like this.”
Si Yiyan said, “This perfume was made using a mix of several different flowers.”
Wen Xinya said in shock, “It smells so pure. I didn’t expect it to be a mix. Which flowers were used?”
Due to the fact that the Wen Family had their own perfume brand, Wen Xinya knew quite a fair bit about perfume. Hence, she was rather curious about the perfume that Si Yiyan had given her.
“It contains royal jasmine, tuberose, Zhangzou daffodils, cape jasmine, and several other flowers.” He had decided to give her such a gift because he knew that she had been reading up on flowers.
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and said, “I heard that the most expensive type of jasmine in this world, is the Spanish royal jasmine. It has an exquisite and refreshing scent. Due to the minute amount of production, only the most luxurious brands in the world can manufacture perfumes made using royal jasmine flowers. I heard that Dior has launched a type of jasmine-scented perfume which contains the essence collected from more than ten thousand buds of jasmine flowers in one bottle. Each bottle is sold at an exorbitant price of more than 10 million yuan. It’s known as the most expensive and lavish perfume in the world. I bet this bottle that you’ve given me is far more expensive than the one from Dior!”
Not to mention, it contained other rare flowers like Mexican tuberose.
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “What matters most is that you like it.” In order to concoct the perfect scent, more than fifty thousand buds of royal jasmine were used, and they had to be plucked at daybreak every single day, so as to extract the purest form of essence.
The Mexican-produced tuberose had an extremely refreshing and natural scent that was milder than normal tuberose. Hence, more than a hundred thousand stalks were used during the manufacturing process.
Wen Xinya remarked, “How extravagant!”
Indeed, he had spent way too much on a gift that she wouldn’t use.
