Si Yiyan leaned closer towards Wen Xinya and pulled her into his arms, only to discover how cold her body was. He caressed her gently, seemingly trying to give her all of his warmth.
The warmth of his body seemed to take away all of the chilliness within her body and her heart. She said, “Si Yiyan, you’re right. I’m too obsessed with becoming stronger, but I’ve never known the rules of being a strong person.”
Fortunately, she met Si Yiyan in this lifetime. He understood her, empathized with her and treasured her. He was her guiding light and took her through many shortcuts.
“Xinya, not only do victors have to possess great courage, bravery, wit, intelligence, the ability to adapt and resistance to stress, they also have to be proud and know their self-worth,” Si Yiyan said while hugging her tightly and letting out a long sigh. The sight of her being as pale as a sheet was deeply etched in his brain and never failed to make him feel miserable.
“You can only know where your limits are once you truly understand your own abilities and what you’re worth. Only then can you lead yourself onto the path towards becoming stronger.” Wen Xinya wrapped her arms around his waist gently, all of her feelings of grief and misery gone. Indeed, Si Yiyan was the person who knew her best in this world. He always knew the best way to comfort her.
“Success comes with sacrifice, but excessive mistakes will result in the undermining of your success. People only remember Wu Mugong from the Song Dynasty to be a hero of the nation, but no one remembers that he used to be a true victor. You don’t share a close relationship with the Wen Family, and it’s destined that you must be careful with everything you say and do. Once the Wen Family disapproves of you, you’ll be greatly criticized and people will accuse you of being unfilial. However…. as long as you stay true to yourself, success will overwrite everything,” said Si Yiyan, after which he gently kissed her brows that were raised in a coquettish manner.
Wen Xinya was plagued with woes and dejection. She rubbed her face against his chest gently and said, “The Wen Family and I have been separated for fifteen years. The time lost cannot be redeemed regardless of how hard I try to bear with the pain and harsh treatment. Even if I try my best to be careful and avoid disrupting the balance, nothing can be changed. In that case, why should I yearn for their affirmation? As long as I’m outstanding enough, Grandpa won’t bear to let go of me. I was just overthinking.”
Feeling heartened, Si Yiyan kissed her pale lips gently and affectionately.
“Si Yiyan, don’t worry, I’ll definitely take care of myself from now on…” Wen Xinya said smilingly, her fair skin glowing radiantly beneath the light. She continued, “I won’t let anyone cause you any heartache again.”
She still remembered what Si Yiyan said when he hired someone to hit Wen Haowen after he hit her and caused her to bleed. Back then, he said, “Since he has caused me heartache, I’ll make him pay a hundred times the price!”
Si Yiyan finally smiled and he brushed his fingers against her swollen face. Wen Haowen must have been ruthless when hitting Xinya. “Does it hurt?” he asked.
His voice was exceptionally hoarse, and it seemed like he was beyond exasperated. Wen Xinya rubbed her face against his chest coquettishly and she answered, “It hurts, though it’s not exactly unbearable. It’s not as bad as it looks. As you know, my skin bruises easily.”
Wen Xinya had always had better-than-average skin and complexion. Not to mention, she had been living in luxury and supplementing her skin with Du Ruo’s skincare products, ever since she reunited with the Wen Family. Hence, her skin was extremely smooth, dewy and supple. It was so delicate that bruises would form easily.
My girl is supposed to be the happiest girl in the world. Yet, I have to watch her suffer in the Wen Family and struggle to become stronger…
Wen Xinya continued in a mellower voice, “Don’t worry, I’m really alright. These are just minor wounds compared to the ones I sustained in the past. Ruoruo has given me some medicated cream for the dissipating of bruises. I’ll be fine in two days.”
Si Yiyan remained silent and kissed her wounded face gently.
Having sensed the anger brewing within Si Yiyan, Wen Xinya hugged his waist gently and intentionally tried to change the subject. “The effects of Ruoruo’s medicated cream are incredible. Even the medicine provided by the hospital can’t hold a candle to it. When you got wounded previously, I applied Ruoruo’s medication onto your wounds…”
Si Yiyan tacitly stopped Wen Xinya from continuing.
Wen Xinya stared wide-eyed at him and she could see the creases of his skin beneath the bright lights. She could also see the fine fluff on his face.
She snapped out of her trance and realized that she had been kissed.
She then felt a sudden warmth on her face, as well as an electrifying sensation that radiated through her body. Her eyelashes quivered gently like a fluttering butterfly.
After the brief kiss, Wen Xinya asked in a soft yet raspy voice, “Are you still angry?”
“I’ve never been angry with you,” Si Yiyan said while rubbing her rosy lips gently. They were moist and seemed to glisten under the bright lights, appearing extremely enchanting. His eyes turned darker like ink.
“You’re lying!” Wen Xinya exclaimed, pouting her lips. Si Yiyan was the one who scared and upset her with his terrifying demeanor.
Si Yiyan hugged her tightly while remaining silent. A lump formed in his throat and he felt like he had heard her wrongly.
However, Wen Xinya could clearly tell how he felt earlier on. Si Yiyan felt ashamed and helpless for being unable to save her from the mistreatment by the Wen Family. Given how prideful he was, he definitely wouldn’t be able to take it.
Pouting her lips, she said, “Si Yiyan, Wen Haowen slapped me because of Ning Shuqian. I’m not going to take it lying down. Why don’t we hire some people to beat him up and avenge me? Besides… we can’t let that old woman off either. We’d better let her be obsessed with mahjong later.”
Si Yiyan’s eyes lit up and he said to her smilingly, “Okay, leave it to me. I’ll definitely take revenge for you.”
This little lass finally knows how to put her special privileges to use.
Wen Xinya buried her face in his chest in satisfaction. “Si Yiyan, I’m cold! My wounds and my feet hurt too.”
Si Yiyan picked her up in his arms and carried her bride-style. “Let’s go back!”
