Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
It was time for Wen Xinya to reap the benefits of the trap that she had laid for the Xia Family. Although the Xia Family had yet to announce that they would be selling that plot of land that she was eying, it was only a matter of time before they did, given the dire situation that they were in now. Yan Shaoqing had already made all the necessary arrangements, and all she had to do now was to wait.
Only by becoming stronger could she be in charge of her own destiny as well as that of others, including Xia Ruya, Ning Shuqian, and the Xia Family.
Due to the fact that she had already secured her footing in the Wen Family and the upper-class society, it was effortless for her to deal with Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya.
Wen Xinya got a grip on her emotions and walked into the Mo Family home slowly.
The roses on the rose vines in the yard were blooming vibrantly, and Wen Xinya could not help but be reminded of the time when she first arrived in the Mo Family home.
At that moment, she was filled with a complicated mix of emotions and was bent on strengthening themselves. She felt guilty towards Old Mr. Mo and was traumatized by everything that happened in her previous lifetime. Time flew by and three years had already passed. She was no longer the helpless and powerless Wen Xinya who was in no control of her destiny.
All of these were thanks to the care, concern, and support that Old Mr. Mo had given her.
She took a deep breath, the pleasant scent of roses wafting up into her nose.
Old Mr. Mo stood by the door, keeping his slender spine as straight as a ruler. Wen Xinya, who was standing in front of him, was completely rid of arrogance, though she exuded a charming grace and aura. It was as if she had gotten rid of all of her emotional baggage and was standing tall and confident.
He looked extremely heartened.
Wen Xinya finally discovered Old Mr. Mo’s presence and exclaimed smilingly, “Grampy!”
Old Mr. Mo nodded and asked, “What brings you here?”
There was only a little more than a month left until her final year examinations, and the candidates who would be sitting for the examinations were all seizing the remaining time to revise. Wen Xinya had already applied for a two-week leave because of her abduction. Hence, she ought to stay at home and revise at this juncture.
Wen Xinya hugged Old Mr. Wen’s arm coquettishly and said, “It’s because I missed you, of course. So much has happened to the Wen Family lately that I haven’t had the time to visit you.”
Ever since the news of her abduction was released on the media, followed by the exposure of Wen Haowen’s scandal, she had been trying to focus on revising for her examinations and hence, did not visit Old Mr. Mo in a long time. Mother He called her yesterday to inform her that Old Mr. Mo had been having a poor appetite. Being rather worried about his health, she decided to come over specially to visit him.
At this moment, she felt rather relieved to see that he was energized. She thought to herself that he probably had a poor appetite due to the blazing weather.
Old Mr. Mo’s expression softened, finding her to have a glib tongue. “I’m still the same old me. What’s there to see? You’d better focus your energy on revising for your final year examination. You were previously injured and you applied for a two-week break. You must catch up with your academics and make it up for the time that you lost.”
He obviously had faith in Wen Xinya and did not doubt her intelligence at all. Not to mention, he had taught her himself. However, he was rather worried that she would be distracted by the troublesome things that had been happening to the Wen Family lately.
Having understood his concerns, Wen Xinya smiled and said, “Grampy, do I seem like someone who doesn’t know her limits? I’ve already caught up with everything that I missed and have also revised the materials in advance.”
Due to the fact that Zhong Rufeng was worried about her being unable to catch up with revision, he decided to help her with revision by making several annotations. In order to spend more time with her, Si Yiyan had also tutored her and helped her with the content that she had to revise. With the two scholars to help her, she made tremendous progress in revision and had already caught up with her teacher’s pace.
Old Mr. Mo felt rather relieved to hear her words. He was initially worried that she would not be able to stay true to her goals and do what she had to because of the extraordinary position she was in now. “Xinya, you’ve returned to the Wen Family home for three years and back then, everyone thought of you as a gangster, but now… the first thing that they’ll think of when they hear your name, are the exorbitant assets and the ten percent of the Wen Corporation’s shares that you now own. You’re now known as the most prestigious heiress of the city.”
A sullen expression began to form on Wen Xinya’s face.
Old Mr. Mo said, “Xinya, do you know that the more outstanding you are, the more attention you will receive? Even though you’ve had a luxurious coming-of-age ceremony and become the most prestigious heiress in the upper-class society, that can’t change the fact that you only reunited with them recently. Attention and glory are double-edged swords to you now. They allowed you to secure your footing in the upper-class society, but you’ll fall from heaven to hell if you miss a step.”
“Grampy, I know!” She was well aware that he was giving her some pointers. She realized earlier, the path that she had to take.
She was extremely touched to have Old Mr. Mo teach her and guide her along ever since she returned to the Wen Family home. He often aided her in finding her true position at the most important juncture. Hence, she could secure her footing in life.
Old Mr. Mo said, “Don’t take the same path that Xia Ruya did. The Wen Family… is not for you to control now. What you need to do… is never to control the Wen Family. Since you’re a child, you should act like one. Accumulate your wealth and take charge of your own life. Don’t get the sequence wrong.”
Wen Xinya could not help but feel a cold shiver down her spine, and the first thing that she could think of was the recent operations of Lanxin Cosmetics and the business at the store. She was suddenly reminded that she had neglected the preparations for Lanxin Cosmetics to expand into the health supplements industry because of everything that happened recently.
She took a deep breath!
Hence, she felt that she needed to focus on accumulating her wealth.
Besides, Old Mr. Mo was indirectly telling her that she was receiving too much attention lately and that it was time she rested.
Wen Xinya calmed herself down and rid her face of her smug arrogance. Looking a little apologetic, she said, “Grampy, I was wrong.”
Old Mr. Mo said smilingly, “You’ve already done a great job.”
