Chapter 581: Old Mr. Mo’s Plans
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
After shirking off the reporters, Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan headed to Shande Mansion.
As soon as Wen Xinya got inside the car, Zhou Tianyu immediately opened a bottle of mineral water and handed it to her. Wen Xinya accepted it gratefully and began taking large gulps.
Wen Xinya was secretly extremely nervous when they were at the bank. She even had to answer all the questions posed by the reporters, thus causing her to be extremely parched. As a result of dehydration, her mind was sent into a state of frenzy and her legs turned into jelly as if she were stepping on cotton.
After finishing half the bottle of mineral water, Wen Xinya’s thirst was finally quenched. She asked in bewilderment, “Didn’t Soaring Public Relations company arrange for me to head there at five o’clock in the afternoon?”
Zhou Tianyu explained, “I don’t know how the Soaring Public Relations company arranged it either, but they just called me and Tongxuan and told us to send you straight to Shande Mansion. I think they have other plans for your beauty facial and spa session.”
Xu Tongxuan answered, “I guess it’s a last-minute arrangement!”
Wen Xinya nodded and did not probe any further. Although it seemed on the surface that everything was arranged by the Soaring Public Relations company, it was actually decided by Si Yiyan, especially since it was so important. Hence… she did not have to worry about it at all.
Xu Tongxuan looked at Wen Xinya with a look of bewilderment, after which she whipped out her mobile phone and pretended that it was a microphone. She asked Wen Xinya, “Miss Wen, could you tell us how it feels like to be a billionaire?”
Wen Xinya’s coming-of-age ceremony was much more grand and extravagant than her homecoming party. Not only were the preparations more meticulous, but the venue was also a show-stopper as well. To top it all off, she even inherited such an exorbitant amount of wealth and expensive dowry. No one could steal her limelight at all.
Zhou Tianyu chimed in. “Tell us, we want to hear your answer.”
Wen Xinya placed a hand on her forehead and smacked Xu Tongxuan’s mobile phone away. She said angrily, “I’m already troubled enough. I haven’t recovered from the shock yet!”
She could not help but feel a sudden headache and hence, rubbed her throbbing temples. There were just too many zeros for her to count, so much that they seemed surreal.
Xu Tongxuan and Zhou Tianyu burst into laughter.
Wen Xinya said with pouting lips, “Grampy told me prior to this, that my mother had left behind exorbitant dowry for me. I was really astonished back then and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw them in person today, especially when they were transferred to me. I didn’t touch them at all and they were placed back inside the safe vault in the bank. It was as if they had nothing to do with me at all.”
Xu Tongxuan and Zhou Tianyu continued to clutch their stomach and guffawed loudly.
Wen Xinya continued to lament, “Grampy has really shocked me this time. I was reminded of the time that I picked up a yuan on the ground when I was younger. I was extremely surprised back then and thought to myself that I finally don’t have to go hungry for the day. But… how do you think I would have felt if I were to pick up tens or hundreds of thousands?”
Entirely amused by her words, Zhou Tianyu snorted with laughter.
Xu Tongxuan followed suit and said, “I bet you’d be too uneasy and afraid to spend the money, for fear that the owner would nab you and take you to the police.”
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “That’s exactly how I feel right now. Although I’ve inherited a massive amount of wealth, I don’t feel the desire to spend it at all. Well, it’s probably because it’s the blood, sweat, and tears of my maternal grandmother’s family, my great grandmother’s family, as well as my Grampy’s family. I just want to keep the assets safe and prevent others from taking them away.”
Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan continued to laugh.
After having a good laugh, Zhou Tianyu said, “I wonder how Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya reacted after reading the news.”
The two of them went through painstaking means to ruin Wen Xinya’s coming-of-age ceremony, only to be defeated by Wen Xinya instead.
Xu Tongxuan chimed in. “The Wen Family is giving Xia Ruya clout by helping her organize her coming-of-age ceremony on behalf of the Xia Family. On top of that, she even tried to use her coming-of-age ceremony to downplay the effects of her scandal and secure her footing in the Wen Family. Yet, Old Mr. Mo pulled such a move and trampled all over her. She probably detests Xinya to the core.”
Wen Xinya pursed her lips and said nonchalantly, “Even if none of this happened today, she’s already detested me to the core. It doesn’t matter even if she hates me more now.”
Zhou Tianyu sighed and said, “Old Mr. Mo has merely pulled a move and it was already groundbreaking enough. He has utterly shocked lots of people and even embarrassed Xia Ruya, Ning Shuqian, and Wen Haowen together, giving them a tight slap.” She then continued agitatedly, “How vicious and shrewd of Old Mr. Mo. He’s so relentless. Xinya, it turns out that’s where you inherited your cunningness from.”
It was indeed a cruel and ruthless move!
Wen Xinya cursed in her head,
After some thorough thought, Xu Tongxuan understood what he meant. She exclaimed, “Old Mr. Mo really lives up to his name. His moves are so shrewd and unparalleled!”
Wen Xinya agreed. “I didn’t expect this either. Grampy has always kept a low profile and stayed composed about everything. I got a great shock too.”
She understood that Old Mr. Mo was simply trying to improve her reputation and help her earn the respect of others. Ever since Ning Shuqian announced her pregnancy and Xia Ruya moved in with the Wen Family, Wen Xinya had been greatly affected by the exposure of her scandal. Her retaliations were never successful and her status in the circle was affected too.
Old Mr. Mo was clearly shaming the Wen Family and indirectly insulting them. By doing so, he was trying to tell the Wen Family that she was still prestigious and esteemed even if she was not the successor of the Wen Family. Even Old Mr. Wen was not a billionaire like her. Besides, the precious items that she had inherited would continue to appreciate in value over the years, unlike cash that would depreciate because of inflation.
If the Wen Family could help Xia Ruya build her reputation, the Mo Family could do the same for Wen Xinya too. Moreover, Old Mr. Mo wanted Xia Ruya to forever be inferior to her.
Mo Yunyao’s exorbitant dowry had made Ning Shuqian seem disgraceful and even mocked Wen Haowen for giving up such a precious gem. The dowry no longer had anything to do with Wen Haowen.
At this moment, a screeching sound came from the tires of the car which braked all of a sudden…
