Due to the fact that she had been kidnapped, Old Mr. Mo and Old Mr. Wen had been accompanying her in the hospital most of the time. Old Mr. Mo had even instructed Mother He to look after her in the hospital. Mother He was rather strict and forbade her from watching television or getting out of bed. She was only allowed to read newspapers and magazines. She would settle all her meals and business while lying on the bed.
As soon as the clock struck ten in the evening, Wen Xinya chased her grandfather home with the perfect excuse of wanting him to get more rest because he was old in his years.
After Mother He left, Wen Xinya left the ward stealthily and headed to the ward beside hers.
Just as she was about to open the door, Si Yiyan beat her to it. Upon sight of him standing by the door, she teased. “Hey, Ninth Young Master Si, where are you planning to go at this hour?”
Needless to say, Si Yiyan was definitely aware that Old Mr. Mo and Mother He had already left the hospital. He was on his way to look for her in her ward. She chastised herself for being impatient and making the first move.
Si Yiyan dashed forward and hugged her by the waist before lowering her down onto the bed. “Does your head still hurt? How’s your appetite today? Are you still feeling nauseous like yesterday?”
While sleeping beside him yesterday, she had a frown on her forehead for the rest of the night. In order to help her sleep better, he massaged her head continuously until five in the morning. He then carried her back into her ward stealthily.
Wen Xinya pouted coquettishly and said, “It still hurts, but not as much as yesterday. However, I still don’t quite have an appetite. I’m so sick of eating bland porridge every day.”
Si Yiyan knew that she was definitely craving for some meat since she was a meat-lover. “Mrs. Tan has made some eel soup. I left some for you.”
Eel was nutritious and nourishing. It also aided in wound recovery. The doctor had also instructed her to eat more fish and eggs.
Wen Xinya was over the moon. She kissed him and said, “Si Yiyan, I knew it, you’re the best.”
Si Yiyan opened the thermal flask and poured the eel soup into a bowl. He then scooped a spoon of it and fed it to her. “Here, open your mouth!”
He had specially instructed Mrs. Tan to cook the soup according to Wen Xinya’s preference.
Wen Xinya opened her mouth obediently and took a whiff of the fragrant eel which was fresh and flavorful. “Yes! Mrs. Tan’s culinary skills are superb.”
Staring at how much of a glutton she was, Si Yiyan burst into laughter and said, “If you like it, I’ll get Mrs. Tan to make some for you. Mrs. Tan is an expert at cooking eels. I can guarantee that you’ll be in for a treat.”
Wen Xinya downed two bowls of soup at one go and ate some eel flesh before rubbing her round belly and lamenting. “At this rate, I’m going to gain weight even before my injury heals.”
Si Yiyan looked at her and found her pouting to be extremely adorable. He comforted her softly. “Don’t worry! Fish is high in protein and low in fat. You won’t get fat from eating fish. There are also beauty-enhancing benefits.”
Wen Xinya chuckled.
Si Yiyan stuffed the mobile phone into her hand and exclaimed, “Put your phone away properly!”
He was thankful for the fact that he had given her that mobile phone before she got kidnapped. If it weren’t because of the built-in satellite function, he wouldn’t have found out so soon that she got kidnapped.
Wen Xinya was extremely surprised. “I thought that the abductors had stolen my mobile phone. I didn’t expect it to still be with you.”
It was the mobile phone that she and Si Yiyan both owned. It contained the messages that they had sent to each other and the calls they made. She found it a pity when she thought that they had gone missing.
Si Yiyan kissed her lips gently and said, “Text me when you’re bored.”
In the day, Old Mr. Wen and Old Mr. Mo would visit Wen Xinya at the hospital. Hence, it would be inappropriate for him to go to her ward. Mother He often kept a close watch on her and she had to place calls sneakily. Mother He would constantly ask her if her head hurt, if she had applied medicine on her wounds, or if she had any appetite.
Although Old Mr. Mo had already agreed to let him date Wen Xinya, Old Mr. Mo did not necessarily approve of them and had merely seen the truth. Hence, Si Yiyan felt that he ought to be more careful in the future, for they had a long way ahead.
Now that she had a mobile phone, he could text her and find out about her condition at all times.
Wen Xinya held her mobile phone in her hand and said, “Sure! You’re not allowed to call me annoying then.”
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “I won’t. I wish you’d annoy me all the time.”
Wen Xinya looked up haughtily.
Si Yiyan said, “I’ve already sent some people to investigate on your abduction and the military arrested Ning Yuya after you got kidnapped. They interrogated her, analyzed her psychological state and put her through a lie detector test. However, there were no leads. I also heard that Xia Ruya called the Wen Family after you got kidnap, claiming that she had left her passport in the Wen Family home. However, Xia Ruya did not return home that night.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and asked, “Do you suspect that Xia Ruya has something to do with my abduction?”
She was in extreme disbelief.
Si Yiyan continued, “I know you find it unbelievable, but don’t forget that the terrorists might have threatened her. Everyone knows about the feud between you two. And how are you so sure that they won’t use her to abduct you? If they noticed you, they’d definitely notice her.”
Wen Xinya was at a loss for words because Si Yiyan’s analysis was right. “You’re right. I wasn’t thinking enough. However, these are just our conjectures. Could we find a way to search for some clues from the three abductors?”
She had previously suspected that there was more to her abduction. To her surprise, Si Yiyan actually found such clues.
Si Yiyan shook his head and said, “I reckon that’s impossible. Those terrorists belong to organizations and they’ve been put through strict training too. They have the ability to stay calm and fool lie detectors, and their willpower is strong enough to resist the liquid of truth from America.”
Wen Xinya rubbed her aching head and thought to herself,
Si Yiyan hurriedly massaged her head and said, “Stop thinking about it. These are just our conjectures. There’s no concrete evidence yet. I’m telling you this just so I could give you some mental preparation. You should prioritize your health.”
Wen Xinya understood his concerns. She nodded and said, “I know. There are plenty of chances for us to deal with Xia Ruya.”
However, Xia Ruya had completely crossed the line this time and Wen Xinya would definitely not let her off. She decided to take the time and think of a way to retaliate during her recuperation.
