Chapter 712: Si Yiyan, Are You Jealous?
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Old Mr. Zhong arrived at the hospital a while after Zhong Rufeng did. As soon as he saw Wen Xinya, he began asking her about her condition worriedly, while completely ignoring Zhong Rufeng. She could not help but cover her mouth and giggle incessantly.
Old Mr. Zhong and Zhong Rufeng left a while later, not wanting to disturb her from resting.
Wen Xinya was just about to get some rest when she saw Si Yiyan entering her ward, clad in the light blue hospital uniform which looked extremely cold and menacing on him. It was much more austere than Zhong Rufeng’s outfit which was refined like lush greenery.
Wen Xinya subconsciously took a look at the time before saying, “What brings you here? Mother He is coming back anytime soon.”
Si Yiyan pressed his lips together to form a straight line. “Old Mr. Mo has already approved of our relationship. It won’t matter even if Mother He finds out.”
He felt extremely indignant all of a sudden.
Upon hearing his words, Wen Xinya found them to sound rather peculiar. She asked, “What’s wrong? Who provoked my Ninth Young Master Xiasi again?”
Si Yiyan looked at the vase of viburnum flowers as he raised his brows, looking a little glum.
Wen Xinya looked in his direction and chuckled. “Zhong Rufeng and Grandpa Zhong came by to visit me just now. Zhong Rufeng told me to rest well and that he would be here in a few days to help me with revision.”
Si Yiyan was staying right beside her ward and hence, he knew every move that she made. Needless to say, he was just being jealous, for he definitely was aware of Zhong Rufeng’s arrival.
Si Yiyan suddenly found his favorite viburnum flowers to be an eyesore. Hence, he looked away and asked, “Tuition? Why do you bother going to such trouble to ask him when you can just get me to tutor you?”
He was extremely displeased about the idea of her letting Zhong Rufeng tutor her. He was well aware that Zhong Rufeng was not a simple man and he had already seen through him. He knew that Zhong Rufeng was trying to use coaching her with academics as an excuse to get closer to her, in a bid to make her let her guard down around him. Si Yiyan knew that Zhong Rufeng was a tough competitor. Unfortunately… Zhong Rufeng was a step too late.
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and said, “Ninth Young Master, you’re so busy every day. I wouldn’t dare to trouble you to help me with my academics.”
She had long known that Si Yiyan was jealous of Zhong Rufeng, though he disregarded Chu Jingnan. Clearly, he saw Zhong Rufeng as a threat and she knew that he was upset about the academic help that Zhong Rufeng had been giving her.
Si Yiyan pulled her into his arms and asked softly, “Are you upset about me being too busy to make time for you? Are you upset that I’ve neglected you?”
Si Yiyan began to reflect on himself. Ever since he met Wen Xinya, he had indeed been extremely busy and did not make too much time for her.
Wen Xinya frantically raised both her hands and exclaimed, “No, I definitely didn’t think of that. I swear to God!”
Hence… as an understanding girlfriend, she felt rather guilty.
Si Yiyan said with a frown, “Did you get Zhong Rufeng to tutor you because he’s more outstanding than me?”
He knew that Zhong Rufeng was an outstanding man who had a similar family background as Wen Xinya. They were of similar age as well and Old Mr. Mo was also in awe of Zhong Rufeng. It was apparent that Old Mr. Mo approved of Zhong Rufeng and admired him greatly.
Wen Xinya suddenly found it surprising that Si Yiyan would have such thoughts. It was little wonder that people always say that men in love are silly. She pretended to be shocked and widened her eyes. “How could that be? My man has to be the most outstanding.”
Si Yiyan remained silent and kept his eyes fixed on her.
“Are you jealous?” asked Wen Xinya, who began to feel a little guilty because of the way that he had been staring at her. She thought to herself,
“Yes!” Si Yiyan answered.
Although Wen Xinya was feeling misunderstood, she smiled and said, “Don’t be so petty, alright? Zhong Rufeng and I are just friends. Besides… he’s not my type, anyway. Why are you so worried?”
It was not the first time that she had to explain her relationship with Zhong Rufeng!
Although Zhong Rufeng was outstanding, he was not her type, be it in the past or present lifetime.
Si Yiyan expressed assent and accepted her explanation reluctantly. Wen Xinya began to get annoyed.
Just as Wen Xinya was pouting to show her displeasure, Si Yiyan said coldly, “I trust you, but I don’t trust him.”
As a man, he knew too clearly that Zhong Rufeng was incredibly outstanding. He did not feel threatened by Chu Jingnan because Chu Jingnan’s feelings for Wen Xinya were not pure, unlike Zhong Rufeng who truly adored Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya was stunned!
Si Yiyan looked at her calmly and said, “Wen Xinya, I’ve never been one to tolerate other men harboring designs on my woman. Once he crosses the line, I’ll teach him a lesson.”
He was tyrannical, but would not interfere with her life unreasonably. He tolerated Xu Zhenyu, only because Xu Zhenyu meant too much to Wen Xinya and he did not wish to hurt her. He let Chu Jingnan off because he had never seen him as a threat before. He would never stoop to the level of getting jealous of Tom, Dick or Harry. He decided to let Zhong Rufeng be, because he knew that Zhong Rufeng was beneficial to Wen Xinya in terms of academics and also because he was in no place to stop them from being friends because of the close ties between the Zhong Family and Mo Family.
He sounded cold and menacing, making Wen Xinya’s heart skip a beat!
“Wen Xinya, I have the ability to be spurred by romance and provoked because of the woman I love.” He then planted a kiss on her lips.
The kiss was forceful and full of indignant feelings. Wen Xinya found it hard to even breathe, though she had no choice but to accept it while being filled with a complicated mix of emotions.
