Wen Xinya was extremely sluggish in the room of Ninth-Heaven, staring at Zhou Tianyu and Gu Junling tease each other. Ling Qingxuan joined in while Xu Tongxuan began cheering loudly.
After some drinks, Zhou Tianyu realized that Wen Xinya seemed to be in low spirits and nudged her. “Hey! Did Ning Shuqian do something to give you a headache? You seem so out of sorts.”
Wen Xinya was extremely alarmed about Ning Shuqian moving back to the Wen Family home. Just like Zhou Tianyu had expected, Ning Shuqian had already wreaked havoc and stirred trouble, all of which she had heard about from Wen Xinya.
Shaking her head, Wen Xinya said, “Since when has Ning Shuqian ever stopped getting up to her tricks? I’m merely dealing with whatever comes my way. I’m not feeling angry, I’m just a little sluggish.”
Zhou Tianyu felt much more relieved after hearing her words.
Xu Tongxuan said in disdain towards Ning Shuqian, “Your stepmother is already pregnant and yet she’s still being such a troublemaker. I really wonder if she’s actually pregnant. Which mother would dare to be so vicious and unafraid of getting retribution?”
Ling Qingxuan did not manage to find any clues of a fake pregnancy when he was checking up on Ning Shuqian previously. Hence, they had basically deduced that Ning Shuqian was really pregnant.
Wen Xinya swirled the glass in her hand sluggishly and said, “I’ve already expected this to happen. Actually, I would have found it more peculiar if she didn’t use her pregnancy to stir some trouble.”
Gu Junling stared at her and said, “I think you’d better move to school under the pretext of having to study and revise for your final year examinations. Even if she resorts to any scheming tricks, you don’t have to be afraid or wary. You can also focus on preparing for the examination.”
Ning Shuqian was also intentionally trying to distract Wen Xinya from revising for her final year examinations. Well… unlike other heiresses, Wen Xinya had been away from the Wen Family for fifteen years and all of her actions were closely monitored. Hence, she had to try her best to secure her footing in the Wen Family.
Ling Qingxuan said, “I think that Junling’s suggestion is great too. Ning Shuqian is already a tough one to deal with. Things are only going to get worse now that she’s colluding with the conniving Xia Ruya. You might as well move away from her. Out of sight, out of mind.”
Wen Xinya shook her head and said, “Let them go ahead and create trouble. I’ll just sit back and watch. Only then can I find the chance to see if Ning Shuqian is actually pregnant.”
Most importantly, if she wasn’t around in the Wen Family home, Ning Shuqian might just get up to some dirty tricks again. She did not want the Mother Wang incident to repeat itself.
The few of them nodded. Although Ling Qingxuan did not manage to find any suspicious clues, Ning Shuqian’s actions were enough to make them keep their guards up. It was more important to find out if Ning Shuqian was really pregnant.
Zhou Tianyu said in agitation, “Look, this is the life of luxury that every woman covets. It’s extremely ugly and pretentious. Who would have thought that there would be such a horrendous side to the glamorous life of the rich?”
Xu Tongxuan agreed. “This is what the world is like. Beneath the glitz and glamor lie dirt and trash. The charm of a wealthy family is enough to drive one nuts and cause them to sink into an obsession with power and materialism.”
Wen Xinya suddenly recalled the way she used to be in her previous lifetime, where she was dejected and a lost cause. She had no idea how many heiresses were just like her.
Zhou Tianyu sighed emotionally and quickly changed the subject. “By the way, how’s the preparation for your eighteenth birthday going? I don’t remember seeing you getting busy because of it lately.”
However, they were actually clear that the Wen Family was planning to throw a lavish coming-of-age ceremony and thus were rather concerned about it.
“It’s alright, it’s going rather smoothly,” Wen Xinya answered, feeling a little awkward since she had left the preparations to Si Yiyan and hence, did not know exactly what was going on.
Xu Tongxuan said, “Since you and Xia Ruya share the same birthday, your coming-of-age ceremonies will definitely be held on the same day. You must be very careful. I doubt Xia Ruya will sit back and do nothing. She’s very cunning and insidious. I can’t see through her at all.”
Two years ago, Xia Ruya’s life was almost ruined by her scandal and yet, she managed to reduce the negative effects and got back onto her feet. She even managed to change her fate and become a member of the Zhishan Club and a world-loving angel. Wen Xinya was certain that it was not purely coincidental.
Wen Xinya sneered. “If Xia Ruya is smart enough, she should know that it’s impossible to steal my limelight during the coming-of-age ceremony, just because she’s a member of Zhishan Club. If I were her, I would have chosen to avoid it.”
She had long begun preparing for her coming-of-age ceremony, unlike Xia Ruya. However, she did not think that Xia Ruya would celebrate together with her.
Gu Junling nodded and said, “She’s only going to embarrass herself if she holds the ceremony together with you. She’s nowhere comparable to you, regardless of status or background. Besides, you have a respectable and esteemed Grampy.”
Ling Qingxuan said, “That may be the case, but we can’t be sure that she won’t get up to any tricks during your coming-of-age ceremony. It’s better to keep a lookout.”
Wen Xinya nodded, having already expected that there wouldn’t be peace during the coming-of-age ceremony.
Xu Tongxuan nodded and hurriedly changed the subject. “Xinya, which university are you planning to go to?”
Wen Xinya answered, “Capital University. I’m planning to enroll in a design course.”
As the daughters of politicians, Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan already had their future planned out long ago. It was mandatory for them to build a political career and hence, they went to Beihua University, the same one as Zhong Rufeng, whereas Gu Junling and Zhou Tianyu had been enrolled into Qingyuan University. Due to the fact that both their families were into business, they took on the Finance and Business Management courses.
Qingyuan University was known for its superior Business Management course and was one of the renowned universities in the world, far beyond Capital University.
Zhou Tianyu gave Wen Xinya a thumbs up and said, “You’re very ambitious. Lots of foreigners are coveting for a place in the Capital University’s school of design.”
Given how well Wen Xinya was doing in school, she was not worried about her at all.
Wen Xinya said, “I’m sure you guys know that the Wen Family deals in the jewelry and fashion business. I must build a foundation in this field.”
Wen Xinya could not help but be reminded of her previous lifetime.
In her previous lifetime, she had merely achieved mediocre results which landed her in an average university. In the end, she had to beg Old Mr. Wen to let her enroll into Qingyuan University and studied a course in jewelry design. She ended up in the same school as Ning Yuya, who constantly made life difficult for her, thus causing her flair and talent in jewelry design to be undermined.
In this lifetime, she had acquired lots of knowledge about fashion and jewelry design from her grandmother and hence, decided to major in fashion and jewelry design.
