Chapter 481: Trying to Toy with My Woman…
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
The administrative procedures for the handover of the archipelago had mostly been settled and Si Yiyan had officially been granted ownership of the archipelago. Extremely fatigued, Wen Xinya laid sluggishly in Si Yiyan’s arms like a boneless creature and dozed off soon after.
However, the night was still young for the auction.
The tycoons and nobilities at the auction continued to have a whale of a time.
Si Yiyan carried Wen Xinya in his arms, in a bid to return to their room.
“Rex, care to have a gamble?” Anatoli suggested, holding a gorgeous woman in his arms. He walked towards Si Yiyan, his eyes red from the alcohol and his porcelain skin all flushed. However, he seemed extremely sober.
“I’m not interested.” Si Yiyan declined calmly. To him, taking Wen Xinya back to the room so she could get some rest was far more important than anything else. Hence, he did not hold back and showed all feelings of displeasure towards Anatoli.
Shocked to see that Si Yiyan outrightly rejected him, Anatoli frowned and said, “I heard that your beau really fancies that set of Four Treasures of the Study that I bought during the auction.”
Holding Wen Xinya in his arms, Si Yiyan stopped in his tracks the moment he heard Anatoli’s words. “Sounds interesting!”
Given how wealthy Si Yiyan was, it would be a piece of cake for him to find an excellent set of Four Treasures of the Study. However, it was rare for Wen Xinya to set her sights on a particular one. Hence, he was just racking his brains for a way to make Anatoli give up the Four Treasures of the Study. To his surprise, Anatoli actually offered to give it up.
Seeing that he seemed interested, Anatoli turned around and said to his gorgeous assistant, “Bring that set of Four Treasures of the Study here.”
The assistant frantically handed him the set that was packaged in an exquisite box.
Anatoli grabbed the box and handed it to Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya instantly sobered up and thought to herself,
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “Since Young Master Anatoli is so sincere, just accept it!”
Since Si Yiyan had already given her the green light, there was no reason for her to decline. Hence, she grabbed the gift from Anatoli.
Wen Xinya then handed the box to another waiter beside her. She then said to Si Yiyan coquettishly, “When we’re back, you must use this set of Four Treasures of the Study to write me a verse of ‘Wei De Wu Xin’ in the Liao calligraphic style. I’m going to frame it up and hang it in my study!”
Si Yiyan had excellent Liao calligraphic skills.
Si Yiyan sneered. “So that you can be reminded of me all the time?”
Wen Xinya punched his chest playfully and said, “Nonsense. I just want to constantly remind myself to be virtuous and upright.”
Anatoli was extremely peeved by the sight of them acting all lovey-dovey in front of him. However, he was stuck in a dilemma and could not decide if he should interrupt them, though he was certain that they were humiliating him on purpose.
Si Yiyan shifted his gaze onto Anatoli and asked, “What would you like to gamble on?”
Anatoli glared at Wen Xinya sinisterly and said with a smirk, “Let’s use your beau as a stake. If I win, you’ll have to give her to me…”
Before Anatoli could even finish, Si Yiyan smashed the box onto his head repeatedly, causing Anatoli to take a few steps back.
Anatoli thought that he could escape Si Yiyan. To his astonishment, Si Yiyan kicked him and caused him to fall onto the ground.
He knocked into the table, causing the plates to fall onto the ground.
The commotion garnered the attention of all of the other guests who dared not approach them despite feeling extremely curious. Instead, they hurriedly moved away.
Even the organizer Xu Qingqiu had broken out into cold sweat and was too afraid to intervene. He regarded Wen Xinya with much more respect.
Si Yiyan dashed forward and continued to kick Anatoli. “Who do you think you are? How dare you bet on someone with me?”
Anatoli was not exactly in poor health. However, after the brutal attacks from Si Yiyan, he had no choice but to continue lying on the ground and suffering the abuse.
Si Yiyan stomped his foot down onto Anatoli’s neck and pressed his foot against it with extreme force. He berated. “Even Old Mr. Mo’s chauffeur has to treat me with respect. Who do you think you are? You’re actually thinking of toying with my woman… you can only do so if you’re alive.”
Anatoli grabbed Si Yiyan’s ankle with both his hands, his face flushed red. He was panting heavily with his mouth wide open. He had never had such a close shave with death.
“Do you believe that I’ll cripple you right now?” Si Yiyan kicked Anatoli away, causing the latter to be flung against the wall. His head began bleeding instantly.
Anatoli lied motionlessly in the pool of blood while twitching periodically. Yet, no one dared to save him.
Si Yiyan stared at the blood in front of him with much composure. Deep down, he was filled with exasperation and pique.
Wen Xinya had never seen such a violent and menacing side of Si Yiyan at all. His eyes were like dark pools of ink and he looked extremely cold and intimidating. Although he seemed calm on the surface, he was filled with displeasure and his face stiffened.
Si Yiyan tried to step forward again.
Wen Xinya hurriedly hugged him from behind to stop him. “Simmer down, it’s not worth getting angry with such a pervert.” She was extremely attached to him, and she pressed her face against his back in a bid to stop him from getting angry. She listened to his heartbeat as his heart ricocheted strongly against his chest.
Si Yiyan soon got a grip on his emotions. He turned around and pulled her into his arms. “I’m alright, don’t worry!”
Wen Xinya could not help but heave a sigh of relief. She felt that Si Yiyan was acting too dangerously just now. It was as if nothing could stop him at all.
Si Yiyan picked Wen Xinya up in his arms and said, “Let’s go back to the room!” In fact, he did not wish to let her see how violent this world could be.
The silence continued, and it seemed no one dared to break the silence that Rex had created.
Anatoli had long passed out while laying in the pool of blood.
