Chapter 816: Si Yiyan, Why Are You Here?
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya had no idea how terrible of a state Xia Ruya was in.
Almost every segment of the Ai Shang Group’s product launch was perfect, and everyone was looking forward to the climax.
Of course, Wen Xinya was the center of attention.
There would always be reporters surrounding her and trying to find out more news about her. After all, she was now the most prestigious heiress in the city, and she was extremely newsworthy, be it in the eyes of the members of the upper-class society or the public.
Women often grouped themselves into fives and surrounded Wen Xinya, bombarding her with questions about fashion, styling, beauty, and makeup. She had already become the purveyor of fashion in the city, second only to Zhou Huiyan.
Wen Xinya was the brightest shining star in the upper-class society.
Wen Xinya had a hard time getting herself out of her tainted past.
At this moment, a glass of water was placed in front of her. “I noticed that you had quite a bit to drink just now. You must be parched.”
Although she looked elegant and noble on the surface, she was still a little straightforward and boorish on the inside, some traits that she had developed from the fifteen years that she lived alone. She would have a few drinks whenever she was happy and throw a tantrum when she was unhappy.
Wen Xinya grabbed the glass and looked at the man in front of her in shock, wondering if her eyes were playing tricks on her. “You… how did you end up here?”
She did not expect that Si Yiyan would turn up at the Ai Shang product launch. She had walked around the venue throughout the entire evening but never once saw him! Must he be so mysterious?
Si Yiyan said, “Old Mr. Mo has something on, so he got me to represent him.”
He had come over using the identity of being Old Mr. Mo’s student. Due to the fact that he disliked entertaining and socializing at such cocktail events, he did not show his face much, though he paid attention to all of her actions.
Wen Xinya pouted and exclaimed, “Grampy probably doesn’t want to attend such events!”
She was well aware of Old Mr. Mo’s personality. She knew that he hated socializing at such events. He would rather stay in his study and read some books than waste his time and energy.
Si Yiyan remained silent while smiling.
Wen Xinya continued to rattle on and on. “Well, Grampy is a legend of the world of literature and he definitely has to upkeep his image. He doesn’t have to attend these corporate events at all.”
The Wen Family had sent Old Mr. Mo an invitation out of courtesy. Of course, they did not genuinely wish for him to turn up.
Si Yiyan pinched her face and said, “Your face is all puffed up like a bun. If Old Mr. Mo finds out that you have maligned him, he’ll definitely punish you.”
“Ah! It hurts! Si Yiyan, you really don’t know how to treat women properly.” Wen Xinya chastised while pouting her lips. Her eyes were glittery, and the diamonds on her hat made her eyes look like constellations.
Wen Xinya cringed at the thought of Old Mr. Mo. Previously, he had punished her by making her do penmanship after finding out about her relationship with Si Yiyan. Of course… Si Yiyan was the one who did most of it. She remembered the look on Old Mr. Mo’s face when he flipped through the copies that she had written. Her heart still pounded at the thought of it.
“You’re becoming so fragile. I can’t pinch you…” In fact, he did not use any strength at all, and he was the one who had spoiled her rotten. She would lament that he was bullying her and throw a tantrum at every slightest thing. He could not help but remember the after-effects of the event that happened on the night that she had gotten drunk. Even until now… she still nursed her body with Traditional Chinese Medicine. He continued, “I can’t eat you, either!”
Wen Xinya’s ear turned red and she said self-righteously, “Haven’t you heard that women are born to be fragile?”
It was the last day of Si Yiyan’s abstinence period.
Actually… on the fifth day of the abstinence period, Mrs. Tan had already told her that her body was alright after taking herbal baths and Traditional Chinese Medicine. However… she had an appetite for revenge and wanted to get back at Si Yiyan. So…
Si Yiyan chuckled suggestively and exclaimed, “Yes… fragile like you’re made of water!”
If she weren’t made of water, why would she be so moist all the time?
The emphasis on every intonation made her think about some rated scenes, and she was reminded of the times when they… got intimate with each other. She realized… that he would often make remarks about how wet she was.
Her face turned slightly warm and she immediately tried to get those images out of her head. Ah… she had been led astray by Si Yiyan. Her mind had become corrupted.
Noticing the change in her expression, Si Yiyan chuckled and asked, “What are you thinking about?”
He was clearly asking the obvious. Wen Xinya pretended to be calm and answered, “I almost forgot. You’re not allowed to tell Grampy what I said about him.”
Si Yiyan rubbed her hair affectionately and agreed. “Okay, I won’t tell him!”
Extremely thrilled, Wen Xinya continuously rattled on and on about how Old Mr. Mo refused to give in to her during chess and criticized her for her poor chess ethics… She even clenched her fists and made Si Yiyan tell her that she did not have poor ethics!
Si Yiyan burst into laughter. At last… he stared at her tender lips that kept opening and closing. He used his intense gaze to trace every line and crease on her lips, unable to take his eyes off her.
Wen Xinya stopped talking.
Si Yiyan licked her lips and savored the sensation of her lips.
Wen Xinya felt a little giddy and thought to herself,
She could hear Si Yiyan saying in a raspy voice, “Wen Xinya! Today is the last day, right?”
Wen Xinya’s heart raced and she suddenly felt like she was lusting for him. “Mrs. Tan said that my body is alright!”
As soon as she finished speaking, she wished she could bite her tongue off and hide in a hole. Who said you could have such weak willpower? Who told you to give in to temptation…
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “In that case… I’ll be waiting for you tonight!”
Wen Xinya snapped out of her trance and pushed Si Yiyan away. She fiddled with her hair and said, “Um… Um… I’ve been out for a long time. If I don’t go back inside, others are going to notice!”
Before Si Yiyan could even respond, she strutted away in her five-centimeter heels.
Si Yiyan found the sight of her exquisite and defined ankles extremely alluring.
He suddenly realized that he had forgotten to remind her to drink less alcohol.
A sullen expression formed on his face at the thought of her drunken stupor and decided to keep an eye on her.
