Chapter 465: A Sudden Call From Xu Zhenyu
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya chatted with Old Mr. Mo for a while before returning to her own room. Mother He had already packed her luggage for her. She walked towards the bookshelf beside the dressing table and took out one of the novels written by Meng Yao. She began flipping through the pages and felt extremely at peace all of a sudden!
Ever since her rebirth, she seemed to have become much more composed and cool-headed. However, no one knew that she was like a taut string which had no end. No one knew when she would snap.
Ning Shuqian consistently laid traps for her and caused her to fall deep into a pit.
Ning Yuya wished that Wen Xinya would suffer a tremendous defeat and never make a comeback.
Xia Ruya was just like a venomous snake in a cave, who’d attack her when she was not noticing and cause the deadly venom to infiltrate her insides.
The Wen Family’s selfish nature reminded her that she ought to be careful with every she took and that she could not make a single mistake, lest she get abandoned.
Fortunately, she had made it thus far. She took a deep breath and got a grip on her emotions. Even her breathing had become much more regular.
Si Yiyan had attacked Black Sunday ruthlessly and alarmed everyone. He had also given Ning Shuqian’s accomplices a warning. Hence, Ning Shuqian was left to fend for herself and Wen Xinya wondered what she would come up with.
Xia Ruya was greatly shaken by the scandal. Although the virginity test report had already proved her innocence and restored some of her reputation, she had already reduced the damaged done. However, her plans to return to the Wen Family had already been foiled. Hence, the most important thing for her to do now was to save her own reputation instead of wasting time to deal with her.
The more Old Mr. Wen trusted her, the more disappointed he would be in Wen Haowen. Moreover, Old Mrs. Wen did not have much power either. Hence, Wen Xinya need not worry about being abandoned by the Wen Family.
Wen Xinya grazed her finger against one of the pages, on which Si Yiyan had annotated a footnote in his beautiful handwriting.
Her greatest gain was Si Yiyan.
There was no way she could forget the harm, hurt and pain that Chu Jingnan had caused her in her previous lifetime. He had caused her to lose the ability and bravery to love.
She was greatly surprised by Si Yiyan’s sudden appearance in her life. He had seen through her and he knew that what she needed was greater strength, not love. Hence, he did not pester her nor forced his love upon her, for that would only anger and irritate her. He did not force her either, for it would only push her further and further away from him. He did not drown her in sweet nothings because she would reject him and keep her guard up against him. He did not shower her with endless care and concern because it would make her feel pressurized and overwhelmed.
Hence, he slowly entered her life in a gentle and relaxing manner, thus allowing her to let her walls down around him. He had been trying to find a balance and a suitable way to interact with her. He made himself irresistible and won her heart gradually without her realization. Finally, he got her to fall in love with him.
In order to win her heart, he went through painstaking means to make the right plans and find the right balance. Yet, he had never once hurt her. He was indeed worth her while!
As Wen Xinya smiled, her mobile phone rang all of a sudden. She hurriedly grabbed her mobile phone to see that it was a call from a random number. Just as she was about to answer, the caller ended the call.
Wen Xinya rubbed her fingers against her mobile phone casually. It was a gift to her from Xu Zhenyu. It was golden in color and she still remembered the words that he had said to her back then: “You’re the heiress of a wealthy family. Gold is a classy color that suits you.”
Back then, she was so angry that she kicked Xu Zhenyu.
Zhou Tianyu and the rest of her friends made fun of her continuously because of the mobile phone.
Just as she was about to put her mobile phone away, it began to ring again. She looked at the caller display to see that it was from the same number. “Hello, I’m Wen Xinya!”
The caller remained silent.
“Hello, hello… speak up!” Wen Xinya said with a frown, preparing herself to end the senseless call.
“It’s me!” a hoarse voice answered. It was Xu Zhenyu, who no longer sounded like a shrilling chicken. His voice had already broken and he sounded manly and sexy.
“Xu-er!” Wen Xinya exclaimed in shock, tightening her grip on her mobile phone. It was the first time that he had ever contacted her since he left for the military. Thus, she did not expect that he would call her.
“Wen Xinya, how are you doing lately?” Xu Zhenyu asked, no longer prideful and arrogant.
“I’m alright. How about you?” Wen Xinya asked, her heart pounding rapidly. She had long heard about the discipling that the military exacted on the army recruits. However, she felt as if his voice was foreign and unfamiliar. She hurriedly answered, “I heard from Han Mofeng that you’ve joined the special ops in the army and that the discipline there is very strict. The training is arduous too. Are you alright!?! Why haven’t you been contacting me…”
Xu Zhenyu listened to her voice that was still as clear and crisp as before. He instantly felt a great sense of comfort and grinned widely, unable to contain his joy.
“Why aren’t you saying anything?” Wen Xinya suddenly realized that she had been rattling on while Xu Zhenyu remained silent.
“I’m listening to you,” Xu Zhenyu answered softly.
Wen Xinya fell silent, as if all of her words were stuck in her throat.
Xu Zhenyu lowered his voice and answered, “I’m alright. Training is tough, but I’m living each day to the fullest. I’m very passionate about it too. Previously, I had been confused and lost. I only realized that the military is where I truly belong after I joined it.”
Wen Xinya felt as if a boulder had been lifted off her chest. “That’s great!”
Although his voice was hoarse and he sounded lethargic, she could still tell how passionate he was about the army.
After a long silence, Xu Zhenyu finally said, “Wen Xinya, I’ll be back in at most three years.”
He continued in his head,
He sounded a little strange yet resolute. It was as if he was hinting at something else. “I know!” she answered.
“In… that case, I’ll hang up now. Gotta go,” Xu Zhenyu said, gripping his mobile phone tightly. After ending the call, he realized that his palm had become red. However… he did not have the courage to finish his sentence.
Upon hearing the beeping tones of the call ending, Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief.
