The Xiao Family decided to deal with the matter by remaining calm. They issued a notice on their official website in the afternoon, stating that the claims about the Xiao Family colluding with the Jiang family to work against the Wen Family, were all false. They decided not to disclose any other details. As expected, they managed to reassure several stakeholders and slow down the decline in their stock prices.
Wen Xinya stared at the declaration as her lips curled into a cold smirk. She reckoned that the Xiao Family must have known that they were verified to have plotted against the Wen Family and that they were just trying to declare their stand.
They had invested 500 million yuan into the stock market, just to assert dominance over the Wen Family. After all, everyone thought that the Wen Family was inferior to the Xiao Family in terms of wealth adn power.
However, she was not surprised by their actions at all.
Wen Xinya put her mobile phone away and headed downstairs.
Si Yiyan was sitting on the couch and watching some financial news. The current situation going on in the Xiao Family and Wen Family were being reported.
As soon as Wen Xinya sat on the couch, Si Yiyan inched closer towards her and they began cuddling affectionately. Si Yiyan said in a raspy voice, “The Wen Family is just using the media to deal with the Xiao Family. Although it’s a great solution, it’s a little too blunt and simple. The Xiao Family may not have been able to turn the situation around, but they’ve got some great tricks.”
It was inevitable for business rivals to harm each other. The Xiao Family may be despicable, but so what? Capability was always the most important when it came to business.
The Wen Family was in a good position because of their product launch and thus, giving Wen Xinya the chance to use the media to deal with the Xiao Family. On the other hand… the Xiao Family used their power and capabilities to show that all their scheming tricks were of no use at all.
Wen Xinya understood what he meant. She smirked and sneered. “We shall see if the Xiao Family really has the ability to retaliate against my plan.”
Si Yiyan kissed her on the lips and said, “Since you’ve already pulled the first move, you definitely have a second one. Tell me… what’s your second move?”
He had never belittled her scheming nature.
Wen Xinya bit his lip gently and said with a smile, “You want to know, huh…”
Si Yiyan expressed assent.

Wen Xinya smiled smugly and continued, “I”m not going to tell you.”
Seemingly trying to punish her, Si Yiyan pinned her down onto the couch and kissed her continuously until she pleaded for mercy. “Don’t, don’t… I’ll tell you, alright?”
Si Yiyan remained silent.
Wen Xinya frantically answered, “I’m planning to stir trouble, set a trap for them and lure them into giving up everything…”
Si Yiyan said coldly, “It’s too late!”
Wen Xinya hurriedly asked, “What do you mean?”
Si Yiyan pressed his crotch against hers smugly and her face turned hot and red. She finally understood what he meant.
Wen Xinya murmured anxiously, “Don’t… Mrs. Tan…”
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “Mrs. Tan has taken the day off.”
Hence, they got intimate with each other.
By the time Wen Xinya recovered, they were already lying on the large and spacious bed and she was enjoying Si Yiyan’s massage. All sprawled across the bed, she groaned and lamented that Si Yiyan did not spare her any mercy.
While giving her a full body massage and taking liberties with her, Si Yiyan would occasionally feed her peeled litchi.
Wen Xinya was gratified to be treated like a queen. Si Yiyan was indeed the best boyfriend ever. He knew how to serve her well, be it in bed or in life. She felt like she was being treated like a queen.
However… she dared not think out loud nor voice her thoughts.
Si Yiyan had always been vicious, and he would make her beg for mercy whenever she chided him casually.
She had a svelte and attractive figure full of youth, and her skin was tender, smooth and supple like jade. Her voice was sweet and coquettish. No man would be able to resist her at all.
Sensing that she was turning shy and warm, Wen Xinya tried to distract herself by chatting with him. “Si Yiyan, I ran into Xia Ruya at the hospital when I was there to collect Grandpa’s health report.”
Si Yiyan paused in his actions and an icy cold gaze formed in his eyes. “What an irony. You never fail to run into your nemesis wherever you go.”
Wen Xinya pouted and exclaimed, “Who wants to run into her? It’s such damage to my eyes. She’s having it rather tough actually, ever since she fell out of the Wen Family’s favor. She was put through lots of suffering after the Xia Family abducted her.”
She was the one who had caused Xia Ruya to be kidnapped by driving the Xia Family to their wits’ end and revealing to them that Xia Ruya had received a large sum of money from the Wen Family. Just like she had expected, the Xia Family was tempted by Xia Ruya’s money. Later on… she sent her people to bribe Xia Haolin’s useless friends into helping her influence and convince Xia Haolin to force her to cough up the money. As for how they should force her… she left it to the Xia Family to think for themselves.
Si Yiyan obviously knew that Wen Xinya was the one behind the terrible experience that Xia Ruya had been put through. “I’ve been waiting to see how you were going to take revenge on Xia Ruya. I almost got too impatient and acted on your behalf.”
He could not tolerate it because Xia Ruya had touched his bottom line.
Wen Xinya said with a pout, “I’m not a pushover. Xia Ruya harmed me so terribly. I must take revenge.”
She preferred to use others to get the job done for her, rather than do it herself. That way, there wouldn’t be evidence against her. The longer one stayed in the upper-class society, the more they would understand that there was no way to conceal the truth forever. It was little wonder that Xia Ruya often manipulated others into helping her achieve what she wanted while maintaining a squeaky clean image.
If she did not make use of Ning Shuqian’s pregnancy sham to provoke Xia Ruya and cause her to delve deeper before exposing them during her coming-of-age ceremony, Xia Ruya would still be living smugly in the Wen Family.
Si Yiyan understood her intentions. He kissed her forehead and said softly, “You did the right thing this time. You may be very capable, but there’s no need for you to take the risk and challenge the law or humanity. We actually believe in karma, and everything happens for a reason.”
He hoped that Wen Xinya would forever maintain a clean image and stay firm to her morals. He wanted her to only do what she should.
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “I understand.”
She also believed in retribution. In her previous lifetime, Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya were utterly villainous and committed a ton of sins. Karma was the reason for her rebirth. If she were to become inhumane because of taking revenge, there would be no point in her rebirth.
