She was in no place to intervene in Gu Junling and Zhou Tianyu’s affairs. Although she was extremely worried, she did not wish to mess things up.
However, Gu Junling accepted her suggestion and begun considering confessing his feelings to Zhou Tianyu one day. Although he had yet to make up his mind, he found it a great idea. Wen Xinya was certain that he would confess sooner or later, given his penchant for thinking twice.
She was hoping that he would confess to Zhou Tianyu before she decided to become a foreign affairs minister.
A few days later, Wen Xinya arrived at the annual gala held by the Wen Corporation.
After discussing the preparations and decor of the venue with Tengfei PR company, Wen Xinya headed to Floral Lingo Pavilion in the afternoon for a beauty spa. She then headed to Lishan Mansion.
Wen Xinya opened the door of the dressing room which was extremely spacious and larger than the dressing rooms of the Mo Family home and Wen Family home combined. It was filled with the latest clothes that were in season, as well as a plethora of jewelry on the crystal cabinet which glowed under the light.
She was greatly captivated and soon got dizzy. No longer in the mood to pick out a gown, she asked Si Yiyan, “Si Yiyan, what gown do you think I should wear to the banquet tonight?”
Si Yiyan remembered every item that he gifted her.
Si Yiyan leaned against the door frame and answered sluggishly, “I remember you have a gray and silver gown. I think it’s in the second closet from the left.”
Wen Xinya walked towards the second closet and as soon as she opened it, she was greeted with the sight of that gray and silver gown that glistened under the light. There were flowers embroidered in white thread on the hem of the gown; it was indeed very suitable for the banquet tonight. “How about the accessories? Which ones should I wear?”
Si Yiyan answered, “I bought you a set of black agate jewelry from Covenant and you don’t seem to have worn it yet. Why don’t you wear that set tonight?”
Suddenly reminded of the jewelry set, Wen Xinya said, “Those are too expensive. Won’t I be a little too over the top if I wear them tonight?”
Due to the exorbitant price, she would usually keep a low profile and refrain from wearing the black agate jewelry.
Si Yiyan shook his head and said, “No, black agate is elegant and classy, yet not overly extravagant. It goes perfectly with that silver gown.”
Finding his words to have made sense, Wen Xinya nodded and said, “You’re right. I’ll put that on then!”
Si Yiyan’s smile widened and he walked into the dressing room slowly. He shifted his gaze onto the shoe cabinet and picked up a pair of stilettos. “Your outfit will be perfect with these shoes.”
Wen Xinya stared at the pair of white stilettos in his hands, which were embellished with enticing black crystals that made it look extremely posh. Wen Xinya could not help but exclaim, “You’ve got such great taste.”
Si Yiyan kissed her gently and said, “Are you discovering more and more of my merits?”
Wen Xinya could not help but chuckle and say, “Yes!”
Si Yiyan grinned widely from ear to ear.
Wen Xinya hugged Si Yiyan’s waist and pressed her face against his chest coquettishly and affectionately.
Si Yiyan held her waist and asked, “What’s wrong?”
Feeling upset at the thought of Gu Junling and Zhou Tianyu, Wen Xinya answered, “Nothing much.”
Si Yiyan let go of her gently and took a few steps back to gaze at her. “Is everything really alright?”
Knowing that she could not hide anything from him, Wen Xinya had no choice but to answer with pouted lips, “Si Yiyan, I’ve been refraining from opening up to you and ignoring your feelings for me while you were showering me with affection. I kept my walls up against you. Were you very sad back then?”
Wen Xinya was again reminded of Gu Junling and Zhou Tianyu’s relationship. Although Gu Junling rarely drank, he was knocked out of his senses that night. She could not help but feel an immense heartache whenever she thought about Si Yiyan.
Si Yiyan was not one to show his emotions. Even if he were to really reject her, he would not drown his sorrows in alcohol like Gu Junling did. Instead, he would hide his emotions and allow his sadness to erode him.
Si Yiyan gazed at Wen Xinya solemnly and said, “I wasn’t sad because you were still so young and I had already prepared myself for a long battle. Besides, I knew you would belong to me!”
Wen Xinya pouted and chided coquettishly. “Arrogant fellow! How were you so sure that I would be in love with you?”
She felt that she had belittled Si Yiyan’s emotional quotient and began finding herself a little silly for worrying about him for several days.
Si Yiyan’s narrow eyes broadened and he said, “Don’t you belong to me now?”
Ever since he knew Wen Xinya, he had been thinking of ways to enter her life while her guard was down. He thought twice before acting and devised a huge plan to lure her and make her fall in love with him and never escape his clutches. Although she was resistant at first, she ended up falling into his trap anyway.
Gritting her teeth, Wen Xinya glowered at Si Yiyan and wished she could dart forward to bite him. “I’m just like an arrow that can’t be retracted.”
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “Yes. You’re like a delicious meat dumpling which has been taken away by a dog.”
Wen Xinya again rebuked. “You’re the meat dumpling. Your family is.”
“Haha…” Si Yiyan chuckled, greatly entertained by the sight of her gritting her teeth. He found it so adorable that he wished he could show her more attention.
“You’re not allowed to laugh…” Wen Xinya chided, glowering at him sternly with her eyes wide open, giving her eyes a beautiful shape as they were raised slightly.
“Yes, yes, I won’t laugh!” Si Yiyan exclaimed, gently kissing the corner of her eyes tenderly as a warm fuzzy feeling filled his heart. He had planned every move meticulously, not because he was confident, but rather because he was not. He was uncertain and afraid. Hence, he would consider and think twice before saying every word. He would consider the consequences and say the appropriate things after pondering carefully.
He was afraid that a single mistake would result in major, irreversible consequences!
