As the preparations for the coming-of-age ceremony progressed, Si Yiyan began to get busier and busier. Seeing that he had cast his work aside in order to help her out, Wen Xinya felt extremely blissful yet sorry, for she had noticed the heavy eye bags beneath Si Yiyan’s eyes. She knew that he had been staying up late to work.
Springtime was not an ideal time to replenish Qi, though it was great for nourishing the stomach, spleen, liver, and brain.
Wen Xinya asked for a few herbal recipes from Du Ruo, for she had planned to make some herbal soup to help Si Yiyan nourish his stomach and spleen.
As soon as she reached the living room, she heard Old Mrs. Wen lamenting to Ning Shuqian. “I don’t know what’s going with me lately, I keep losing whenever I play mahjong. I’ve already lost more than a million yuan since the end of last year. I really wonder if I’ve offended the God of Fortune. I have to visit the temple to change my luck.”
Upon hearing her words, Wen Xinya grinned widely.
She arrived at Lishan Mansion to see that Si Yiyan was not around. Hence, she headed to the kitchen to brew some walnut and ginseng Buddha’s Hand soup, which was great for calming the mind and nourishing the brain. Walnuts were great for nourishing the brain while Buddha’s hand was good for the liver and reducing stress. Ginseng would aid in nourishing the blood.
She then made a pot of lotus seed and fungus soup. Lotus seeds were good for nourishing the stomach and lungs while fungus was good for the heart and spleen.
The longer the soup was being brewed for, the better the efficacy. Since Si Yiyan often stayed up late, he could drink the soup as supper.
After everything was done, Wen Xinya headed to the living room and began reading a magazine to kill some time.
Si Yiyan finally returned after a long time.
Upon sight of her, Si Yiyan smile and said, “When did you come? Why didn’t you call me beforehand?”
Wen Xinya knew that Si Yiyan did not want her to wait for him. Feeling a warm and fuzzy feeling in her heart, she said, “Just a while ago.”
Noticing that she had already finished reading more than half of her magazine, he reckoned that she had already been waiting for a while. He kissed her lips and said, “Children who lie will be abducted by the mad grandma.”
Wen Xinya looked out of the french window to see that it was extremely windy outside. She burst into laughter and said, “Si Yiyan, you’re actually better at lame jokes.”
Si Yiyan stared at her smilingly. Actually… before he met her, he was not humorous at all.
Wen Xinya put her magazine aside and kissed Si Yiyan’s lips gently. She chuckled and said, “My grandma has been lamenting about losing all her recent mahjong games. Si Yiyan… could you explain just what’s going on?” Wen Xinya questioned smilingly.
Hanging his head low, Si Yiyan curled her hair gently with his fingers and said, “Wen Xinya, I’ll fulfill any requests of yours, what more a small request like this.”
All Si Yiyan had to do to make Old Mrs. Wen lose her games was to get a swindler to play with her. Such a simple task required no skill at all.
Wen Xinya pouted her lips and said, “It was just a casual remark of mine!”
After getting scolded by Old Mrs. Wen at the hospital previously, she complained about it to Si Yiyan. Although it was just a casual remark, he took it rather seriously.
Si Yiyan looked up at her.
Wen Xinya leaped into his embrace and draped her arms around his neck. Grinning widely, she said, “But… I like it! That old woman is so addicted to mahjong and the thrill that comes with winning. Let’s keep making her lose. From now on… if she ever provokes me again, I’ll make her lose during all her games.”
“Alright!” Si Yiyan stared at her rosy lips and nibbled on it gently in a coquettish manner. Yet, he was extremely alluring and careful with his movements. She could not help but plant another kiss on his lips in a seductive manner. Her hormones began to rage and she felt a strong urge.
Si Yiyan kissed her neck affectionately, not daring to take it another step further.
Although he usually placed his hand on her waist, this time he began moving it up slowly.
I’ll just touch it for a short while!
She’s turning eighteen in a month anyway.
Her alluring voice rang in his ears like a devil that was continuously trying to seduce him.
There was no way for Si Yiyan to resist her charm at all. He continued to move his hand upwards to her well-endowed bosom, in a bid to have a feel of groping it.
“Si…” Wen Xinya murmured, feeling the warmth of his hand on her skin, which felt like a fire burning her up bit by bit. Gradually… her rationality was eroded.
She admitted that Si Yiyan was far more rational than her when it came to intimacy.
Si Yiyan hurriedly snapped out of his trance and took his hand out from beneath. Holding her tightly in his embrace, he began panting heavily.
Si Yiyan, you were so proud of your ability to exercise self-control and discipline, and stop yourself from giving in to your urges. You’ve already waited for three years, why can’t you just wait another month longer?
He could not help but begin blaming himself.
“Si Yiyan, I actually don’t…” said Wen Xinya, who could tell how intense of an erection he had, just from how warm his body was. She could not help but take pity on him. Thinking that she would be turning eighteen in a month’s time, she reached her hand out towards his crotch.
“I mind. I’m an adult. I have to be responsible for my actions and for you as well. Even if I can’t control my urges, I can’t do anything to you.” Si Yiyan interrupted and grabbed her hand in a bid to stop her.
“You… you’re such a dimwit. You’re a fool!” Wen Xinya exclaimed with tears in her eyes, though she could not cry. For the past two years, she had been witnessing Si Yiyan doing everything he could to hold himself back and keep her pristine.
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “I’m not silly. I remember the pain of holding back my lust! When you become mine, I’ll ask for it back.”
Wen Xinya could not help but say, “You lecher. Serves you right!”
