Chapter 521: Coming-Of-Age Ceremony Theme Planning!
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
After Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian moved back to the old mansion, they had indeed changed for the better. Seeing how Ning Shuqian kept using the child in her belly to please Old Mrs. Wen and how Wen Haowen was always filial towards Old Mr.Wen, only then did Wen Xinya roughly guess the intention of Ning Shuqian using the excuse to move back in with the Wen Family.
A grim smile appeared on Wen Xinya’s lips. Everyone in this family indeed had their own motives.
However, Wen Xinya knew that this sort of harmony was an illusion. Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian had just moved back to the Wen Family and would naturally be slightly afraid of Grandpa—after a while, conflicts would probably be rampant.
However, all these were none of her business. Upon waking up every morning, she would head to school after breakfast. After school, she would go straight to Grampy’s house for revision, only returning at 10:30 P.M. On weekends, she mostly stayed at the mansion on Mount Li to accompany Si Yiyan.
Life was simple and meaningful.
Wen Xinya was holding the related planning information that the Soaring Public Relations company had handed to her regarding her coming-of-age ceremony in more than a month’s time. This was already the third proposal that the Soaring Public Relations company had submitted to her. Somehow, she kept feeling unsatisfied.
Once again, she examined the few proposals carefully, compared them against each other, and still couldn’t decide.
“What are you looking at?” Si Yiyan placed a plate of pearl grapes beside her—their skins had been removed and had toothpicks stuck onto them.
Wen Xinya rubbed her temples and said, slightly vexed, “It’s the proposal for my coming-of-age ceremony that the Soaring Public Relations company has passed to me. The proposal content is obviously very good, but I just feel that something is off.”
Si Yiyan picked a grape and fed it into her mouth as a tinge of glitter swept past his eyes. “Let me see.”
His girl was finally growing up soon!
As Wen Xinya ate the grape, she handed the proposal to him.
Si Yiyan received the proposal and skimmed through it.
Feeling that the grape was very sweet and delicious, she picked one and fed it into his mouth. “How’s it?”
After Si Yiyan finished reading, he tore up the proposal in his hands into shreds, crushed them up, and threw it into the rubbish bin casually.
Wen Xinya stared at him and said infuriatingly, “You don’t have to tear it up even if you don’t like it. There are many ideas that I’ve racked my brains for on it.”
She had actually spent a few days to come up with some more interesting ideas and had planned to discuss some details with the planning team at the Soaring Public Relations company before amending the planning details again.
Seeing that she was angry, Si Yiyan picked a grape and fed it into her mouth. “The Soaring Public Relations company’s proposal is perfect, but it doesn’t suit you.”
As the sweet and refreshing juice traveled down her throat, subsiding Wen Xinya’s anger. “My Grandpa is very satisfied with the proposal prepared by the Soaring Public Relations company. Why do you say that it doesn’t suit me?”
Si Yiyan slowly expressed his opinion. “Taking into consideration the doubts about your identity in the circle some time back, the Soaring Public Relations company’s proposal for your coming-of-age ceremony particularly stresses on the business area, trying to indirectly reflect your undeniable identity as the successor of the Wen Family. Indeed, they’ve made considerable efforts.”
Wen Xinya nodded. “The Soaring Public Relations company has indeed put in considerable efforts into this proposal, discussing the planning details with Grandpa numerous times and also negotiated with me many times.”
Si Yiyan looked at her, his eyes glowing with an ever-changing and gorgeous glow. “However, this style definitely doesn’t suit you. The Wen Xinya that I know is brilliant, outstanding, highly-confident, self-assured, and knows what she wants—she doesn’t need to make use of this sort of way to affirm herself.”
The content of the Soaring Public Relations company’s proposal was entirely to organize a coming-of-age ceremony as grand and luxurious as possible, inviting notable figures from all areas to attend the party and to make use of this way to affirm Xinya’s status in the Wen Family. This turned him off.
Praised by Si Yiyan to such an extent, Wen Xinya couldn’t help but blush momentarily. “Aren’t parties all roughly similar?”
Only then did a smile appear on Si Yiyan’s face. He continued, “Two years ago, the Wen Family has held a grand homecoming party for you. At the homecoming party banquet, you have used the analogy of a butterfly breaking out of its cocoon to demonstrate your transformation charm and convinced everyone present. Now that the coming-of-age ceremony is your real time to transform, you can’t make use of indirect ways to present yourself. You’ve gotta openly and directly present yourself—only then it’ll be in line with your transformation theme.”
The girl that he liked totally didn’t need others to present herself.
“So the problem wasn’t the planning details, but that the proposal theme itself contradicts my intention. No wonder I kept feeling that I wasn’t sufficiently satisfied with this proposal. I actually didn’t notice such a simple problem—luckily you reminded me.”
Only after listening to Si Yiyan’s words did Wen Xinya look enlightened. No wonder she kept feeling that something wasn’t right—so the proposal theme didn’t correspond to her inner thoughts. Si Yiyan was right, she needed to openly and directly present herself, demonstrating her perfect transformation to everyone—outstanding enough to eliminate everyone’s doubts about her identity.
Seeing her slightly vexed expression, Si Yiyan couldn’t help but smile. “You can’t see clearly as you’re involved and drilled too deeply into this matter, ending up in a dead-end.”
Wen Xinya rubbed her slightly numbed head. She thought about how she had indeed racked her brains over the coming-of-age ceremony recently. She had planned to discuss and amend the planning details with the Soaring Public Relations company before just confirming it like this. Luckily, Si Yiyan’s words reminded her.
Si Yiyan looked at Wen Xinya, his gaze becoming deep and dynamic. “Xinya, you’ve gotta always remember—you went from rags to riches. While others can present themselves by relying on others, you can’t. Only by demonstrating your brilliance and superiority can you truly gain affirmation.”
Wen Xinya nodded. She had known all these from the point of her rebirth and didn’t dare to forget them at this point. Now that she had found the problem, Wen Xinya’s thoughts cleared up, and she suddenly became chirpy. “I want to design the coming-of-age ceremony theme myself. After all, in this world, nobody understands me more than myself. Only by doing so can I come up with an idea that’s befitting for my coming-of-age ceremony.”
The planning theme of the Soaring Public Relations company reeked strongly of business intentions, had all sorts of complex factors as considerations, and emphasized greatly on objectivity. Yet, what she needed was a kind of subjective presentation. Since the views were different, the theme designed would naturally not be what she wanted.
Si Yiyan looked up at her, his deep eyes like the vast galaxy. “In this world, there’s another person who knows you better than yourself.”
Wen Xinya suddenly raised her head, looked into that pair of glimmering eyes, and suddenly felt her heart skip a beat. “You want to help me conceptualize the coming-of-age ceremony theme?”
Si Yiyan said slowly, “I couldn’t participate in your homecoming party previously. Now, at your coming-of-age ceremony, I want to personally take part in your thorough transformation, truly letting you evolve into a peerless butterfly and radiate your own glamorous glow.”
For a moment, Wen Xinya was speechless as she looked at Si Yiyan blankly.
