Chapter 582: The Tailgating Incident
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
The few of them were chatting and laughing boisterously.
“Sit tight,” the driver said with a sullen expression.
Before Wen Xinya and her friends could even react, the car was thrust forwards and jerked violently, causing them to get giddy spells.
Wen Xinya lost her balance and fell forwards.
“Xinya, watch out!” Zhou Tianyu frantically grabbed her and fell onto the seat, after which they knocked into Xu Tongxuan who was sitting beside the window, causing the latter to bang her head against the glass.
Chaos broke out inside the car and peace was only resumed after a long while. Wen Xinya asked Xu Tongxuan worriedly, “Xuanxuan, how are your injuries?”
“I’m alright, it just hurts a little!” Xu Tongxuan answered, feeling a little giddy while pressing her hand to her head.
“Let me have a look!” Wen Xinya hurriedly pulled Xu Tongxuan’s hand and moved her hair away from her face, only to see that there was a red spot on Xu Tongxuan’s head, which would definitely become swollen in a while.
Feeling extremely nervous, Zhou Tianyu asked concernedly, “It’s already swollen. Shall we take you to the hospital? The collision was so severe. You’d definitely get a mild concussion.”
Xu Tongxuan rubbed her head gently and said with a frown, “It’s alright, it’s just a bruise. No big deal. Xinya’s coming-of-age ceremony is more important. Let’s not cause any delay.”
Feeling rather worried, Wen Xinya said, “It’s still early, we’d better take you to the hospital.”
Shaking her head, Xu Tongxuan said, “I’m alright, I just knocked my head onto the glass. That happens to everyone. You don’t have to be worried.”
Xu Tongxuan again emphasized that she was alright, after which Wen Xinya and Zhou Tianyu finally felt at ease. However, they were still a little petrified by the impact.
Wen Xinya squinted and pursed her lips gently, making her look extremely menacing. The driver was still continuing to drive while Wen Xinya turned around to see that there was another car tailing them.
“Stop the car!” Wen Xinya ordered sternly.
“Missy! That car is obviously out to get us. If we stop now, there might be unnecessary trouble,” the driver said, extremely hesitant about stopping. Si Yiyan had sent him to pick Wen Xinya up in order to prevent any trouble from happening during the coming-of-age ceremony. He did not expect to be tailgated at all. Hence, he decided to shake off the car behind them and send Wen Xinya to Shande Mansion as soon as possible.
Wen Xinya sneered and said coldly with a squint, “Let him overtake then!”
She wanted to see just what tricks the other party was getting up to.
Sweat broke out on the driver’s forehead and he was stuck in a dilemma. However, he decided to reduce his speed.
Not expecting them to slow down, the car behind darted towards them.
The driver of the car behind then started honking at them in a hostile manner. The sounds of the honk were so deafening that it seemed to be able to rupture their eardrums.
The driver’s pupils constricted and dilated while he stared at the rearview mirror with bloodshot eyes. He held his breath while his face turned red and flushed. Placing his hands on the steering wheel, he slammed down on the brakes.
Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan looked behind to see that the car was crashing toward them. They were consumed by terror and shock, feeling extremely hopeless.
Wen Xinya kept her eyes fixed on the car behind theirs. The beam from the headlights was so strong that they were even more blinding than the sun. The piercing sounds of the tires screeching rang in her ears, causing her to feel like she was almost dead.
The car behind then came to a sudden halt.
Wen Xinya opened her eyes and caught sight of the car brushing past theirs and stopping in front of them.
At this moment, the door of the car opened and out came a young man who was clad in a silver vest and had permed and dyed hair. He was storming towards them angrily.
“Missy, stay in the car and don’t come down. I’ll be back soon,” the driver said austerely, exuding a commanding aura.
Wen Xinya frowned and kept her lips pressed together before alighting from the car.
There was a minor scratch on the back of the car, whereas there was a huge dent in the headlights of the car at the front. It seemed to be a severe collision.
The man walked towards Wen Xinya and hollered. “Are you blind? You damaged my car. How are you going to compensate me?”
Wen Xinya raised her brows coldly and said, “You’re the one who tailgated my car before overtaking us. It’s your fault, not ours. How do you expect me to compensate?”
The man flew into a rage and glowered at Wen Xinya haughtily. “We were going about our own business. Since when did I tailgate your car? You were clearly the one who slowed down all of a sudden and caused me to ram into your car. How could you shift the blame onto me?”
The man then clenched his fist and swung towards Wen Xinya.
Although the driver shielded Wen Xinya, she pushed him away and grabbed the man’s fist. “Are you trying to get physical with me? That’s not good. Don’t be reckless. Tailgating, overtaking, assault… these are serious offenses. Even if your father is a big shot, he can’t save you from the law.”
She smirked coldly and tightened her grip on the man’s fist, appearing rather nonchalant.
“Let me warn you, you’d better let go of me immediately. Otherwise, I’ll teach you a lesson…” Before the man could even continue, he felt a sudden ache and numbness in his wrist, followed by excruciating pain. He grimaced and the tension in his body eased up. He then began breathing and panting heavily.
Wen Xinya leaned back to avoid his disgusting breath and said coldly, “No wonder you did such a dangerous thing like overtaking and tailgating someone else’s car. Turns out you have been drinking! Overtaking and tailgating while drunk is a serious offense. I wonder if you’ll be charged…”
“Bitch, you must be courting death…” the man barked while glowering at Wen Xinya with exasperation.
“You’ve got such a foul mouth, you deserve to be beaten up!” Wen Xinya then gave him two hard slaps across the face before kicking him onto the ground.
The sounds of the slaps were loud and crisp.
The impact caused the man to get a giddy spell. After falling onto the ground, he slammed his head against the back of his car and his blood began flowing out of his head.
He instinctively touched his head, only to see that his hand was stained with blood. “Blood! I’m bleeding…” he exclaimed in terror.
His loud and sharp voice caused the pain in his head to debilitate and he pressed his head in pain, at a complete loss for words.
Wen Xinya looked at the driver calmly and said, “Hand him over to Ninth Young Master and punish him.”
She was certain that it was not a simple drunk-driver incident. Such a coincidence was impossible.
