Chapter 641: Think About That When You Can Keep Yourselves Full
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya’s period had already ended three days ago and she found that things were much less stressful when she let nature take its course. That it would feel weird if she took too much notice of them.
Wen Xinya had been dating Si Yiyan for three years, and they had long reached a high level of intimacy. However, they had yet to do the deed because of the fact that she had not been an adult yet. Si Yiyan had been suppressing his own desires and dared not cross the line. He would even restrict his petting and touching to her neck, collarbones, waist, and legs.
Ever since the day of her coming-of-age ceremony, she had already familiarized herself with every contour of his body. Although she had yet to go full run with him, they had already developed a significant level of intimacy.
She had always felt that they had both belonged to each other.
However, ever since her period ended, she had begun feeling distraught and shy. Her shyness had been making her feel an urge to avoid the topic.
Hence, she managed to get by these three days.
She suddenly realized that she had let Si Yiyan down, especially since she had made him wait for so long for her to ripen.
She soon began to get jittery.
There were still ten seconds to go before class ended for her. The bell had yet to ring, but she was already getting eager and impatient. She picked up her revision materials and darted out of the classroom, causing the teachers and her classmates to gasp in shock.
Miss Wen is indeed tough as nails.
It was only upon driving into Lishan Mansion that Wen Xinya suddenly realized that she was sending herself into the lion’s den.
Wen Xinya was caught in a little dilemma before casting her emotions aside.
She arrived in front of Si Yiyan’s study, lacking the courage to even open the door.
Hence, she ran to the kitchen again in a bid to whip up a sumptuous dinner.
She found a perfect excuse for her shyness and told herself that she should think about it only after she was full.
Wen Xinya whipped up a sumptuous feast of four dishes and one soup. By the time she was done, it was already six in the evening.
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and mustered the courage to walk towards Si Yiyan’s study. She loitered around the door and her palms began to get sweaty because of her nervousness.
After persuading herself, she dashed into his study.
The sounds of chatting ceased in the room at the instant that she entered.
Wen Xinya finally realized that Gu Yuehan and another stranger was in the study together with Si Yiyan, and they seemed to be chatting about work.
Wen Xinya was stuck in a dilemma, for she was unsure if she should proceed or retreat. Si Yiyan was also staring at her with an unknown look in his eyes.
At this moment, Gu Yuehan suddenly shot her a glance.
Wen Xinya quivered and walk straight into the study. She sat on the couch and said, “You guys go ahead. You don’t have to bother about me.”
Si Yiyan smiled and continued talking to Gu Yuehan.
Gu Yuehan said, “The mayor of the capital of Russia gave me a call just now to say that he’s willing to be the middleman and hold a banquet as a truce to resolve the feud between us and the Ivanov Family. He said that it’s up to us to list our conditions, and he has also promised to help us get rid of the duke of Russia!”
The other man said, “Those two old fogies are sly and cunning. They must have a treacherous plot set up for us. That’s why they’re giving us such a huge bait. I bet the banquet is just a sham.”
Wen Xinya subconsciously looked at the man who was talking. He was buff, burly and stood at 1.9 meters tall. He exuded a domineering presence and commanding aura, and she could tell that he was assertive and not tyrannical.
People like him were natural-born leaders.
She guessed that that man was the current person helming Lucifer.
The man was sharp and sensitive, and he instantly sensed that she was staring at him. He then looked up and smiled at her.
All the higher authorities of Lucifer were well aware of who she was.
Wen Xinya was shocked speechless. The man looked rather terrifying and daunting when he smiled, perhaps because he was not used to smiling.
Well aware that he had an intimidating smile, the man grabbed a tuff of his hair awkwardly and continued, “But… if we can subdue the royal duke of Russia, Lucifer will be at a great advantage because of the affiliation and special privileges that we would enjoy.”
Once they enjoyed those privileges, Lucifer would no longer have to be at Russia’s beck and call.
Gu Yuehan gave a nod of approval.
Si Yiyan glanced at her and said calmly, “I reckon he’s only trying to tempt us with the matter about the duke. Even if he really frees up the position for us, I bet there are going to be lots of rules and restrictions. Besides, Caucasians have always been racially prejudiced. Even if we get to be the duke, we won’t be able to secure a footing in Russia.”
Wen Xinya’s heart skipped a beat by the look in his eyes. She had not seen him in three days and had actually begun missing him dearly.
Gu Yuehan and the man continued to express their opinions.
Si Yiyan listened attentively, after which he grabbed the teacup from the table and took a sip.
Wen Xinya stared at him. Upon sight of him putting down the teacup and smiling at her, her heart began to pound and she began thinking about the kisses they shared.
Si Yiyan placed the cup on the table casually before looking up to hold her gaze.
His eyes were like dark pools of ink, and a night sky full of constellations; bright and mesmerizing.
Wen Xinya’s heart was like a piece of paper that was crushed into a ball.
Feeling a little indignant, the man said, “Ninth Young Master, I think we can consider the privilege about the duke.”
Si Yiyan shifted his gaze and said calmly, “I’m guessing that this is a trap laid by those two old fogies. Once we become Russian dukes, we’ll be associated with the Russian government, and that would mean that we’re on Lavas’ side. The elections are just around the corner, and we’d have to do everything we can to support Lavas. We can’t guarantee that we’ll be in a neutral position.”
Wen Xinya listened to his composed voice, and it was as if he had everything in control. He exuded strong confidence and seemed to have seen through all plots and schemes.
Her heart would flutter whenever she thought about it.
Si Yiyan grabbed the documents on the table and looked up at her.
Wen Xinya felt as if she had been snapped out of her trance and finally realized that she had been staring blankly at him.
