Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
At this moment, Wen Xinya was sleeping soundly. Last night, Si Yiyan had gotten intimate with her twice and it was already two in the morning by the time they were done. Si Yiyan then carried her into the washroom to bathe her and massage her before carrying her back into the ward. He only returned to his ward at five in the morning.
Her ringtone began to ring continuously in the ward, breaking the silence.
Wen Xinya grabbed the alarm clock tightly in bewilderment, wondering to herself,
She realized that the sound did not cease at all.
Her mind was in a blur and she suddenly realized that the landline in the ward was ringing. She rubbed her throbbing head and struggled to open her sore and dry eyes. She answered, “Hello, I’m Wen Xinya!”
Zhou Tianyu answered, “Xinya, hurry and read this morning’s newspapers. Your father has been caught red-handed in bed with another woman.”
Wen Xinya immediately sobered up, and Zhou Tianyu hung up before she could even ask about what was going on.
She frantically got out of bed and scurried towards the door barefooted and flustered. She grabbed the newspapers and magazines from the shelf, extremely flabbergasted.
She frantically changed out of her clothes and left the hospital.
Along the way back to the Wen Family home, Wen Xinya called Si Yiyan and said, “Help me find out if Yang Ziyu is still at that bar. If she isn’t… do everything you can to find her.”
Si Yiyan could understand her feelings. He quickly said, “Don’t worry, leave this to me.”
Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief after getting Si Yiyan’s promise.
When Wen Xinya returned to the Wen Family home, she was greeted with a major tension in the air, and everyone looked glum and gloomy.
Old Mr. Wen looked as pale as a sheet and his lips were pressed together coldly, making him appear stern and fierce.
Old Mrs. Wen sat down beside him awkwardly, appearing rather upset as well. She tried to speak but had no choice but to keep quiet upon sight of Old Mr. Wen’s sullen expression.
“Grandpa…” Wen Xinya murmured after some hesitation.
A grave expression formed on Old Mr. Wen’s face and he questioned, “Xinya, why did you run out of the hospital?”
Although the doctor had mentioned previously that Wen Xinya could be discharged since there were no major issues with her health, Wen Xinya insisted on remaining hospitalized for a few more days. He was rather glad about it and hence, did not insist on letting her get discharged.
Wen Xinya sat down beside Old Mr. Wen and glanced at the magazines and newspapers on the table. She was momentarily speechless.
Old Mr. Wen understood what she meant. He said angrily, “Your father is a scumbag. He did an extremely shameless thing. Look what they said in the newspapers. I just find him to be utterly embarrassing.”
Back then, Wen Haowen married Ning Shuqian right after Mo Yunyao died. If it weren’t because of Ning Shuqian’s manipulative ways, Old Mr. Wen wouldn’t have tolerated the fact that Ning Shuqian did not bear him any children.
Wen Xinya remained silent for a moment before answering, “Father… what exactly happened with him? I don’t get it. Why don’t we wait for him to come back before asking him?”
However, Wen Xinya guessed that it was likely to be real.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
She could not help but curse Wen Haowen in her head for being shameless and stupid. She had found out long ago that Wen Haowen had hired a lawyer and was in the midst of getting a divorce. Now that Wen Haowen was embroiled in a scandal before his divorce, it was uncertain if the divorce would be successful.
She definitely did not believe that it was just a coincidence. The revelation of his extramarital affair was advantageous to Ning Shuqian.
However, she did not expect that Ning Shuqian would plot against Wen Haowen and lure him into bedding another woman. She could not help but find Ning Shuqian to be terrifying.
She had underestimated her.
She thought that it would be the end of Ning Shuqian because she had already exposed Ning Shuqian’s fake pregnancy and made the Wen Family find her intolerable. She thought that Ning Shuqian would pose no threat to her once Wen Haowen divorces her. Hence, she did not bother paying attention to her lately. Yet, she did not expect that Ning Shuqian would come up with such a trick.
Upon hearing Wen Xinya’s words, Old Mrs. Wen straightened her back and said, “Xinya is right. This might just be a misunderstanding. Why don’t we wait for Haowen to be home and make things clear…”
Old Mr. Wen flung the magazines at Old Mrs. Wen and said, “What’s there to ask? Look what the media has reported. Do you need me to read the articles out loud for you? Look at your good son. He’s gotten himself involved in an extramarital affair and cheated on his wife while she’s hospitalized. He was caught red-handed by the reporters…”
Old Mrs. Wen turned pale in shock, though she was unable to say a single word. She did not expect that Wen Haowen would be so silly as to let others catch him in the act.
Old Mr. Wen flew into a rage and barked. “There are also photos of your son. Do you need me to repeat the analysis of the photos?”
Old Mrs. Wen was completely speechless. As soon as Old Mr. Wen saw the photos in the morning, he got some professionals to analyze the photos, after which it was verified that the photos were real and not digitally altered.
Old Mr. Wen hollered. “Spare the rod and spoil the child. Whenever I tried to discipline that rascal, you’d try to go against me and tell me to cut him some slack. I told you not to indulge him and yet, you refuse to listen to me. Look what happened… he’s done such a disgraceful thing.”
Knowing that she was in the wrong, Old Mrs. Wen spluttered. “He’s your son too. Don’t they always say that the father is to blame for an ill-mannered son…”
Old Mr. Wen interjected. “Are you trying to blame me for failing to take my son in hand?”
Old Mrs. Wen frantically shook her head and said, “No, no…”
She admitted that she had indeed spoiled Wen Haowen rotten. Well, he was her only son, after all! Besides, Old Mr. Wen was often busy with work and had no time for her. Hence, she decided to make up for Old Mr. Wen’s absence by spending more time with Wen Haowen and showing him more concern on behalf of her husband.
Old Mr. Wen trembled in exasperation and said, “How did I, Wen Zhihang, raise such a rascal? All he does is sponge off us and get up to shameless acts. I feel ashamed for him…”
Old Mrs. Wen hung her head low, unable to speak.
Old Mr. Wen’s anger grew and he continued, “This shameless, treacherous son. I’m an upright and honest man. Yet, I’m going to become a laughing stock, all because of him. How did I raise such a horrible son?”
He was utterly disappointed in how heartless he was to Mo Yunyao, how cold and ruthless he was to Wen Xinya, and how greedy he was towards the Wen Family.
