Chapter 630: You Already Look Pathetic Enough
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Xia Ruya stared at Wen Xinya, the champagne blurring her vision. However, the blurriness of it all made the bright lights even more glaring and she felt blinded by them.
Feeling extremely humiliated, she finally understood how it felt to make a fool out of herself. “Wen Xinya…”
Wen Xinya suddenly patted her face and smiled radiantly. “Tsk, tsk, Xia Ruya, you already look pathetic enough. Please make an effort to maintain your elegance. Otherwise… the image that you have painstakingly kept up for fifteen years will be ruined.”
Xia Ruya’s eyes widened in shock and she was at a complete loss for words. She had lost her sense of pride and Wen Xinya had made her look pathetic and pitiful.
She was clearly the star of her coming-of-age ceremony. Yet, she seemed to have become a joke who had lost the chance to even complement Wen Xinya.
Seemingly taking pity on Xia Ruya, Wen Xinya chuckled and said, “Actually, I wouldn’t have embarrassed you in public if you had stayed in your lane and continued being nothing more than the adoptive daughter of the Wen Family.”
Her words had trampled all over her.
She finally understood what it meant to make a fool out of herself.
The old saying, “Everybody hits the man who’s down” was especially true for the upper-class society.
That was just how intelligent Wen Xinya was. She managed to banish Xia Ruya to hell so effortlessly with just a few words.
At this moment, Jiang Ruoyin rushed forward angrily and pointed at Wen Xinya’s nose. “Wen Xinya, don’t you go overboard.”
Although Jiang Yuqian was unable to tolerate it any further, she had to be mindful of her behavior since it was a banquet hall. “Miss Wen, please be mindful of your status. You’re the heiress of the Wen Family and the most elite socialite in the city. How could you splash alcohol onto someone else over a minor tiff? That’s such a distasteful act. The media reported that you’ve transformed into a resplendent and prestigious heiress, but your boorish behavior is truly too lowly and cheap.”
Jiang Yuqian was obviously mocking her.
Wen Xinya placed a hand on her forehead and said with a look of amusement, “You actually have the gall to stand up for Xia Ruya. I finally understand how a true fan behaves. Dear… stupidity is an illness that has to be cured. Otherwise, you’re going to pass it on to your children.”
Everyone knew that Wen Xinya was at odds with Jiang Ruoyin and Jiang Yuqian. They had gotten into several conflicts back in Lan Feng Institute. Now that they were arguing again, everyone just watched the fun.
Fuming with anger, Jiang Ruoyin glowered at Wen Xinya and exclaimed, “Who are you calling stupid!?! Was Yuqian wrong to have said that? You led a wandering life for fifteen years and you’re just a gangster. Nothing can change your horrid nature, not even your status as Miss Wen.”
Wen Xinya shrugged and said nonchalantly, “Stop bringing up the past. So what if I used to be a gangster? How does it concern you in any way? Scram and get lost. Do you believe that I’ll call the security guards to throw you out of the banquet hall and let you enjoy some attention too?”
Jiang Ruoyin glared at Wen Xinya in astonishment and anger.
Jiang Yuqian finally recovered from her shock and said, “It’s Ruya’s coming-of-age ceremony today and Ruya was the one who invited us. What rights have you got to throw Ruoyin out of the banquet hall? Wen Xinya, don’t be too arrogant.”
Wen Xinya raised her brows and glared at Xia Ruya. “Miss Xia, you used the Wen Family’s name to hold this coming-of-age ceremony, but you should also take into consideration the Wen Family’s reputation. How could you invite such a disgraceful illegitimate daughter? How would others see the Wen Family? People are just going to think that the Jiang Family is using their illicit daughter to mock the Wen Xinya. Wouldn’t you be causing a misunderstanding between the two families?”
She had successfully managed to shoot back at Jiang Yuqian without even having to look at her or talk to her.
Jiang Yuqian’s face grew sullen and she wished she could rush forward to beat Wen Xinya into a pulp.
Xia Ruya was momentarily speechless. She was just feeling thankful to have her friends speak up for her. Yet… she wished she could dig a hole for herself at this moment. “Yuqian is my friend, so…”
Wen Xinya nodded and said in a moment of enlightenment, “Birds of the same feathers flock together. You and of them are all illegitimate daughters. It’s no wonder you’re such good friends.”
Xia Ruya turned red at the instant that she realized that everyone was gossiping about them.
With anger surging through her veins, Jiang Yuqian scowled at Wen Xinya menacingly. “Wen Xinya, you…”
Wen Xinya interjected by staring at Xia Ruya. “Miss Xia, do you really think it’s appropriate to let your friends lash out at me in a bid to defend you? Others are just going to think that you’re manipulating your friends into making things difficult for me.”
Her words made Xia Ruya subconsciously look at the crowd, only to realize that everyone was staring at her with looks of disdain.
Wen Xinya turned around to leave and was soon surrounded by reporters. “I hope that the headlines for tomorrow are not going to be something along the lines of ‘Miss Wen getting into an argument with a retarded daughter from a lowly family’. We can’t afford to be embarrassed like that. I can’t be involved with an illegitimate daughter.”
Her words caused the reporters to burst into laughter.
Jiang Ruoyin and Jiang Yuqian stood rooted to the ground in embarrassment.
