Chapter 597: Aunt Ning, You Shouldn’t Wear Stilettos When You’re Pregnant
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Ning Shuqian stared at Wen Xinya, who was receiving attention from everyone around her, with a look of resentment in her eyes. She could not believe how glorious Wen Xinya had now become, especially since she used to be a gangster who had led a wandering life for fifteen years. Even Ning Shuqian’s fake pregnancy could not waver Wen Xinya or affect her status as the successor of the Wen Family.
No one could steal the limelight from Wen Xinya, who enjoyed lots of attention because of the assets transfer and her lavish coming-of-age ceremony.
She could not help but take pity on her daughter, Ning Yuya, whom she felt was not inferior to Wen Xinya at all. Yet, she was chased out of the Wen Family and even sent abroad.
Ning Shuqian’s mobile phone began to ring.
She whipped out her mobile phone to see that it was a call from Ning Yuya. Extremely agitated, she hurriedly walked towards a corner to answer the call.
“Yuya, you’re back? When did you touch down? Why didn’t you inform me beforehand? I would have sent someone to the airport to pick you up!” said Ning Shuqian, who did not expect that Ning Yuya would be back so soon after mentioning that she would be withdrawing from school.
Ning Yuya answered her questions and hung up after a while.
Ning Shuqian put her mobile phone away and turned around abruptly, only to see that Wen Xinya was standing behind her smilingly with a tray of food in her hands…
Ning Shuqian’s heart dropped and wrenched up in shock as if she had just seen a horrifying female ghost. She pointed at Wen Xinya with shaky fingers and screeched. “You… what are you doing here?”
Wen Xinya smiled and stared at the terrified Ning Shuqian. “I’m here especially to look for Aunt Ning. I didn’t disturb you just now because you were on the phone.”
Ning Shuqian instantly got the goosebumps and asked warily, “What are you looking for me for?”
Instead of answering her question, Wen Xinya asked nonchalantly, “Aunt Ning, who was speaking to you over the phone just now…”
Ning Shuqian sneered and interrupted her coldly. “Wen Xinya, who I spoke on the phone to has nothing to do with you. Don’t think you can act all arrogant in front of me just because you’re now a billionaire, hold ten percent of the Wen Corporation’s shares and held a lavish coming-of-age ceremony. Stop poking your nose in my business. I’m telling you… I won’t fall for it.”
Everything that had happened today made Ning Shuqian feel a strong urge to rip her apart. Ning Shuqian had meticulously plotted against Wen Xinya. Yet, her plans were foiled and Wen Xinya even ended up becoming the most noble and prestigious heiress in the city.
Remaining calm and composed, Wen Xinya questioned, “Aunt Ning, why are you getting so worked up? I’m not interested in your business. I just wanted to ask you, is Ning Yuya back?”
Had she not heard Ning Shuqian’s words earlier on, she would have completely forgotten about the existence of Ning Yuya. Hence, she was rather shocked to hear that Ning Yuya had returned, though it was only expected that Ning Shuqian would take the chance to bring Ning Yuya home while she was pregnant.
Ning Yuya’s eyes were full of resentment and she gritted her teeth in anger. “So what if Yuya is back? What do you want? I’m telling you… your father was the one who arranged for Yuya to come home. Forget about trying to stir any trouble because of this. Otherwise, I won’t spare you.”
If it weren’t because of that bitch Wen Xinya, Yuya wouldn’t have been chased out of the Wen Family home and sent abroad.
Wen Xinya said calmly, “Aunt Ning, you’re worrying too much. Yuya has already been chased out of the Wen Family and she’s no longer the daughter of the Wen Family. Even her last name has been changed. She’s nothing more than an illegitimate child who takes on her mother’s last name. Her return has nothing to do with me at all. I asked about Yuya merely because I wanted you to relay my message to her. Tell her that it’s time to return the things that she had borrowed from me.”
On the day that Wen Xinya returned to he Wen Family home, Old Mr. Wen had prepared a set of clothes and a matching set of diamond jewelry for her. Yet, Ning Yuya borrowed the set of diamond jewelry from her and never returned them ever since then. She had recalled it recently.
Her words seemed to have greatly angered Ning Shuqian, who glowered at her and hollered. “Wen Xinya, you bitch. How are you in any place to say that about Yuya? Even if Yuya has an unknown father, she grew up in a healthy environment, unlike you. You led a wandering life for fifteen years and you even used to be a gangster. You got into fights, stirred lots of trouble, got addicted to drinking and smoking. How are you comparable to Yuya?”
Wen Xinya stayed calm and watched on while she rattled on and on angrily like a boorish shrew. She did not act like a wealthy man’s wife at all.
Ning Shuqian continued to rebuke. “What did Yuya borrow from you? Wen Xinya, you’d better not speak any rubbish. Or else, I won’t spare you any mercy.”
Wen Xinya answered coldly, “Aunt Ning, you may ask Ning Yuya about that yourself.”
Her attitude had completely angered Ning Shuqian. She dashed forward agitatedly and barked. “Wen Xinya, you…”
Wen Xinya raised her brows and stared at the exasperated Ning Shuqian. “Aunt Ning, I’m giving you guys three days. If Ning Yuya still doesn’t return my things to me after three days, I’ll… hand it over to the police.”
In her previous lifetime, Xia Ruya, Ning Yuya and Ning Shuqian had snatched away too many things from her. In this lifetime, she would never allow them the chance to take anything from her.
“Wen! Xinya!” Ning Shuqian screeched, overwhelmed with fury. She reckoned that Ning Yuya must have really borrowed something from Wen Xinya. Otherwise, she would not have acted that way.
Pretending to be innocent, Wen Xinya stared at Ning Shuqian and said concernedly, “Aunt Ning, don’t get too worked up. Did you forget that the doctor advised you against getting agitated because of your pregnancy?”
Ning Shuqian had no choice but to suppress her anger and bear with the discomfort. It was as if she could not vent her anger at all. She glared at Wen Xinya, wishing she could slap her.
Wen Xinya stared at Ning Yuya’s shoes and said with a frown, “Aunt Ning, you’re pregnant now. How could you wear such high stilettos? What if…”
Ning Shuqian suddenly realized that it was inappropriate for her to be wearing stilettos. She instinctively stopped in her tracks, only to lose her balance because of her thin heel.
“Aunt Ning, watch out!” Wen Xinya dashed forward and grabbed onto Ning Shuqian’s arm and waist, saving her from the fall.
Ning Shuqian finally got a grip on her emotions and her heart began pounding rapidly. She heaved a sigh of relief, though she felt like Wen Xinya’s warm hand was burning her skin.
Her right eyelid began twitching uncontrollably as if something terrible was about to happen.
