She was intentionally showing her authority as the heiress of the Wen Family and reminding Xia Ruya of her status. She wanted Xia Ruya to know her place, lest she becomes more and more brazen.
Wen Xinya exited from the room and headed to the living room.
Upon sight of her, Mother Wang said smilingly, “Miss, your classmate is waiting outside and asking to see you. I was about to call you.”
“My classmate?” Wen Xinya asked in puzzlement. She wondered to herself,
Wen Xinya walked towards the living room, filled with apprehension. She was greatly taken aback the moment he saw Chu Jingnan.
They were still in the midst of winter break.
Upon sight of Wen Xinya, Chu Jingnan stood up from the couch and said, “Xinya, I haven’t seen you in a long time. How have you been lately?”
Wen Xinya walked towards him and asked calmly, “President Chu, what brings you here?”
She did not wish to beat around the bush or have anything to do with Chu Jingnan. After all, Chu Jingnan was also a leech, just like Xia Ruya. Once she got involved with him, she wouldn’t be able to shake him off. Hence, she cut straight to the chase.
Staring at Wen Xinya who was keeping a distance away from him and speaking to him in an aloof manner, he could not help but find her cold and standoffish. He said, “Ruya’s scandal has caused a major uproar and I’m here to see her. Well, she’s a student of Lan Feng Institute and a member of the student union.”
In fact, visiting Xia Ruya was just an excuse. He was actually there with the intention of seeing Wen Xinya, for he had not had the chance to see her at all during the winter break.
Wen Xinya thought to herself, A sullen expression formed on Wen Xinya’s face and she said, “Turns out you’re using me as an excuse to see Xia Ruya! Ah, Xia Ruya is packing her belongings in the room now. I’ll get Mother Wang to call her for you.”
She then turned around to leave as soon as she finished speaking.
“Wait a minute!” Chu Jingnan dashed forward and grabbed Wen Xinya’s hand. “Xinya, have you gotten the wrong idea about me and Ruya?”
He had noticed the menacing look in Wen Xinya’s eyes when he mentioned Xia Ruya’s name earlier on. He recalled the time when Wen Xinya chanced upon him and Xia Ruya at the restaurant near school. His intuition told him that she had gotten the wrong idea about him and Xia Ruya, which was also the reason why she was giving him the cold shoulder.
Wen Xinya turned around slowly and shrugged Chu Jingnan’s hand away. She then took a few steps back and sneered. “President Chu, this is the Wen Family home. Please show respect.”
Chu Jingnan dared not cross the line since they were indeed in the Wen Family home. Hence, he watched her leave resignedly and said, “I’m sorry, I was just acting impetuously. I didn’t mean to offend you.”
Wen Xinya rubbed her wrist gently and looked at him coldly in disdain. Not wanting to talk to him at all, she turned around and left.
Chu Jingnan zoomed towards her and stopped her from leaving. “Xinya, there’s nothing between me and Ruya at all. You saw us having a meal together because I gave her some help during her preparations for the end-of-semester examinations. She only treated me to a meal as a token of gratitude. I came here today to visit her only because she’s a student of Lan Feng and a member of the student union. I ought to visit her during such a period.”
He remembered the look of confusion and perplexity in her eyes when she first saw him at the student union. However, he could not figure out why she had been giving him the cold shoulder. What exactly went wrong?
Wen Xinya rubbed her forehead and said, “Chu Jingnan, what goes on between you and Xia Ruya has nothing to do with me. You may save the explanation. I don’t want to have anything to do with you either. Please look for Xia Ruya directly if you’re come visit her again. Don’t use me as an excuse. The servants will still let you in.”
She genuinely detested people like Chu Jingnan who did not know how to reject others or accept rejection.
Chu Jingnan kept his eyes fixed on her, seemingly trying to see through her soul and find out her true emotions. “Wen Xinya, you obviously know that I’m actually here to see you, not Xia Ruya. Why are you always so cold and aloof towards me?”
Repulsed by how pretentious Chu Jingnan was, Wen Xinya said, “Thank you for your dearest affection, President Chu. Pardon me but I can’t accept it. Please be magnanimous and let me off. I’ll be eternally grateful to you.”
Chu Jingnan felt his temples throbbing. A sullen expression formed on his face and he snapped. “Wen Xinya, I’ve already explained it to you. What else do you want me to do?”
Chu Jingnan looked into Wen Xinya’s eyes to see that there was nothing except an icy cold stare. He wondered.
He could not help but begin to doubt himself.
Wen Xinya snapped and glowered at Chu Jingnan. “Chu Jingnan, stop thinking that the world revolves around you, and that all girls in are obsessed with you. You’re indeed very outstanding and charming, but do you really think I, the heiress of the Wen Family, will fall for you?”
Chu Jingnan was filled with embarrassment and clenched his fists tightly with a terrifying expression on his face.
Wen Xinya smirked and gibed. “President Chu, just what intentions are you harboring for harassing me non-stop? Don’t tell me, you’re coveting the Wen Family’s assets and you’re thinking that everything will become yours once you marry me? Frankly speaking, lots of people have been harboring such intentions ever since I reunited with the Wen Family. You’re not the first, but… you’re thinking a little too far ahead. I’m only fifteen years old this year. I’m underage!”
“Is this what you think of me? You’ve belittled me,” said Chu Jingnan, who grimaced in disgruntlement. He knew that Wen Xinya was merely insulting him on purpose, for she knew that he had always been ashamed of his family background. He was at a loss for words for a rebuttal.
Wen Xinya smirked and continued, “You’re just an average citizen. Your mother has to work hard and so do you, in order to pay for your school fees. You devised such a scheming plan to get close to me. What am I supposed to do?”
Chu Jingnan was shocked speechless. He clenched his fists tightly and pulled a long face, feeling awkward and embarrassed.
“Brother Chu, are you here to see me?” Xia Ruya asked just as Chu Jingnan was wishing he could dig a hole and hide in it.
Wen Xinya looked at Xia Ruya with an aloof smile before turning around to leave the living room.
A scumbag and a shameless wretch make a perfect pair.
