Wen Haowen returned to the room and saw Ning Shuqian sitting on the sofa sobbing away, not acknowledging Wen Haowen upon seeing him.
Recalling how he was lectured by the Old Man just now and hearing Ning Shuqian’s sobbing and crying sounds, Wen Haowen felt annoyed to the core. However, thinking of his baby in her womb and the fact that he did actually cheat on her last night, he suppressed his annoyance and said in a gentle tone, “Stop crying. You’re pregnant and crying is bad for your eyes. I was really just socializing with Director Wang and the rest and didn’t cheat on you.”
“The papers and magazines have already reported with a photo of you and another woman and you still say that you didn’t cheat on me?” Ning Shuqian’s depressed expression faded off a bit and her shoulders stopped shaking from crying, but she was still crying non-stop.
Seeing such a situation, Wen Haowen hurriedly explained in a low voice, “Shuqian, I was really just putting up a show. You have no idea how difficult Director Wang and the rest were. I’d already filled the table with fine wine and cuisines and even asked for the top hostesses of Jiayuan to keep them company. However, that bunch of old fools kept talking about other things and didn’t even give a definite promise after a whole night. I’m so vexed.”
Thinking about last night—how he enjoyed himself so much and ended up being tricked by Director Wang and the rest—his expression didn’t look good.
Hearing this, Ning Shuqian looked down, wiped her tears, and cried even harder. With a hoarse and sobbing voice, she grumbled. “You already know that Director Wang and the rest are lecherous and yet you didn’t raise your guards…”
Director Wang and the other few directors had all along been lecherous and indecent—Haowen was no match for them. Anyway, she had been married to Wen Haowen for so many years and he had indeed not cheated on her before.
Wen Haowen saw that she had calmed down and spoke with an even gentler voice, “Shuqian, I was careless this time. It’s my fault. We’ve been married for fifteen years and you should know what kind of person I am. Previously, in order to marry you, I even fell out with the Old Man. All these years, although I haven’t been gentle and caring towards you, at least I was faithful. Additionally, you’re carrying my child now. No matter how heartless I am, I won’t cheat on you.”
Ning Shuqian cried even harder, sending huge tear drops down her face non-stop. “That was previously. I’m afraid someone feels that I’m old and not as young and beautiful as the vixens out there and thus cheated.”
Ning Shuqian knew that she couldn’t kick up too big a fuss over this matter and should just let it pass after some crying and scolding. If she were to go overboard, Wen Haowen would also feel annoyed. Wen Haowen was the only one she could rely on—naturally, she wouldn’t be so stupid as to push him away.
Wen Haowen felt embarrassed in his heart as he had indeed thought this way previously. He hurriedly raised his hand and said, “I swear to heaven and earth that I’m faithful to you only. I know that you’re upset about the scandalous news arising during your pregnancy. If you’re unhappy, you can hit and scold me freely.”
Ning Shuqian cried in Wen Haowen’s arms. “Haowen, do you know that when I saw the papers and magazines this morning, it struck me like a bolt out of the blue. When I think of you and other women… my heart aches like it’s being stabbed by a knife. Those women are young and beautiful, I’m madly jealous…”
Hearing these words from the bottom of Ning Shuqian’s heart, Wen Haowen’s heart felt like it was being scalded by a hot iron. “Shuqian, I’m sorry. I was too careless this time and made you feel bad.”
Ning Shuqian only cried incessantly.
Wen Haowen didn’t know what to do. When he recalled that he had indeed cheated on her last night, he felt slightly guilty. He also recalled that a few days ago, Ning Shuqian had a nightmare, kept calling Ning Yuya’s name, and even mentioned it to him but was brushed away by him. Now that he was trying means and ways to coax Ning Shuqian, and, seeing that she was still unwilling to forgive him, he said, “Shuqian, it’s my fault this time. Why don’t I arrange for Yuya to come back to make it up to you?”
Ning Shuqian’s gazed softly at Wen Haowen, her gorgeous face had a pale charm and actually radiated a weak allure. However, she spoke in an extremely stubborn tone, “Don’t think that I’ll forgive you just by doing this…”
She had already wanted to make use of Wen Haowen’s guilt about this matter to get Yuya back to the country. Now that he had initiated it, she hit the nail on the head…
Wen Haowen suddenly touched the pocket of his suit and felt a ring case. He had bought it yesterday after knocking off and wanted to give it to Ning Shuqian to reward her for finally stabilizing the pregnancy.
Unexpectedly, the Jiayuan incident actually happened. This morning, he had been scrambling around madly and almost forgot about this. Now that he suddenly recalled it, he felt that he had great foresight.
Thinking of which, he hurriedly whipped out the ring box and brought it to before Ning Shuqian’s eyes. “Good Shuqian… please be magnanimous and forgive me!”
Ning Shuqian saw the ring box in front of her—it was actually a Cartier diamond. She felt joy in her heart but didn’t show it on her face. “What’s this—do you think that by casually whipping out a gift, I’ll forgive you?”
“This gift was handpicked by me.” Wen Haowen saw her nonchalant look and hurriedly opened the ring box.
“Oh my god! It’s beautiful!” Ning Shuqian couldn’t help but exclaim.
In the ring box laid an exquisite and beautiful blood diamond. The thin silver chain radiated a shimmery glow, the three-carat blood diamond was cut into a drop shape and surrounded by small diamonds of pure quality. It was eye-catching and beautiful.
In recent years, the charm of colored diamonds was gradually discovered by people. Besides the popular blue and pink diamonds, the price of the gorgeously radiant blood diamond had been ramped up by the western countries to exorbitant amounts—a carat could fetch up to a million yuan.
She remembered that the second son of the Xu Family, Xu Zhenyu, had gifted a blood diamond to Wen Xinya. Although that blood diamond was exquisite, it was only two carats in size.
Such an expensive gift was obviously not prepared after the incident but instead bought before that. In consideration of Wen Haowen’s good intentions towards her, Ning Shuqian’s anger reduced by more than half.
Wen Haowen saw that she liked it and couldn’t help but feel relieved. “This blood diamond necklace is the most expensive design in Cartier’s colored diamonds range. Just the necklace alone costs more than three hundred million yuan.”
Ning Shuqian loved it so much that she couldn’t bear to lay it down. “Haowen, thank you! I really like it.”
She didn’t expect Wen Haowen to actually buy such an expensive and beautiful gift for her. Feeling very touched, she had already forgotten about this morning’s trivial scandalous news.
“I’ll put it on for you.” Wen Haowen took the necklace, brushed away her long hair, and gently put on the necklace for her.
“Shuqian, you’re so beautiful. This blood diamond suits you very well.” The blood diamond, against her snow-white skin, seemed to add a tinge of radiance to her, making her shockingly beautiful.
Ning Shuqian fondled the blood diamond in front of her chest gently with her fingers, her eyes slightly upturned with a tinge of satisfaction. Wen Xinya’s blood diamond was not as pretty as her necklace.
