    Wen Xinya’s lips curled into a smile when she thought about Chu Jingnan looking her up. At this moment, the Xiao Family probably already knew that Chu Jingnan was the illegitimate child of the Xiao Family, though they did not wish to acknowledge him.

    Chu Jingnan put in a ton of effort into getting himself a position in the Xiao Corporation and carefully planned every move of his. Finally, he managed to impress Xiao Zhiyuan and even achieved outstanding performances in the Xiao Corporation. He was one step closer to returning to the Xiao Family. Yet, everything was ruined by Wen Xinya.

    It was little wonder that Chu Jingnan would be so infuriated and even went to the extent of ruining his own image and searching for her, insisting on getting an answer.

    Indeed, she had killed three birds with one stone!

    The first thing she did was to use the Xiao Family to assert dominance and enhance the Wen Family’s and Ai Shang’s reputation.

    Next, she caused the Xiao Family’s reputation to be tarnished and made them a laughing stock after causing them to suffer heavy losses.

    Lastly and most importantly… it was the move involving Chu Jingnan!

    Chu Jingnan made tremendous progress and achieved outstanding performance within less than a year of joining the Xiao Corporation. He managed to attract the attention of Xiao Zhiyuan; that was not a good thing for Wen Xinya. Besides… during the Aishang product launch cocktail party, everyone seemed to have begun making guesses about Chu Jingnan’s identity and he even set up a plan to return to the Xiao Family.

    How could she possibly watch Chu Jingnan reunite with his family after accumulating the rights and power to do so?

    She used Chu Jingnan’s identity as Xiao Zhiyuan’s illegitimate son to expose the extramarital affairs that Xiao Zhiyuan had with undergraduates in the past, causing the Xiao Family to be attacked and have their reputation ruined. Even if Chu Jingnan reunited with the Xiao Family, he would be doing so ashamedly and pathetically. He would be extremely displeased with the Xiao Family and the Xiao Corporation.

    Not to mention, the Xiao Family could not afford to keep Chu Jingnan around, given the circumstances that they were now in. His presence would only cause them more trouble, and they obviously wouldn’t let him reunite with them at this juncture.

    Chu Jingnan’s meticulous plans were all foiled.

    Wen Xinya gently rubbed the spot on her wrist which Chu Jingnan had grabbed onto just now. She did not find it painful at first, but there was now a bruise on it.

    “How did you injure your wrist?” Si Yiyan asked, holding her wrist gently while scrutinizing it with a frown on his forehead. He looked rather stern and formidable.

    Wen Xinya pouted and said aggrievedly, “Who else could have done that to me other than that scum Chu Jingnan? I’ve never met a man who likes getting physical as much as he does.” Realizing that Si Yiyan was squinting at her threateningly, she hurriedly explained, “However, he didn’t have it any better. I dislocated his wrist and made him feel tremendous pain.”

    She then glanced at Si Yiyan stealthily.

    Si Yiyan stared at her calmly with an unknown glow in his deep and dark eyes.

    Wen Xinya’s pupils constricted and she pretended to be angry. “I’ve let him off easy this time. If this happens again, I’ll just break his arm. Who is he to touch my hand as and when he pleases? I’ll make him pay the price for doing that.”

    As soon as Wen Xinya finished speaking, she continued to whine to Si Yiyan coquettishly. “Si Yiyan, my wrist hurts!”

    She then touched her wrist pitifully while he held onto it.

    “Don’t move, I’ll take a look at it.” Si Yiyan pressed her wrist gently while checking her injury.

    Wen Xinya retracted her hand and stared at Si Yiyan with tears in her eyes. “It hurts, be gentler!”

    There was a large bruise on her wrist, on which she felt a dull ache that was not exactly unbearable. It was merely because her skin was too tender and fragile, so much that it often bruised easily. However, the minor injury had helped her win the sympathy and tender care and affection of Si Yiyan.

    Si Yiyan’s heart softened and he said in a mellow voice, “Fortunately, it’s just a minor bruise and not a fracture. It’ll heal in a few days with some ointment.”

    He was contemplating if he should send someone to chop off Chu Jingnan’s hand!

    Seeing how solemn he was, Wen Xinya felt a sweet blissful feeling in her heart. The reason Si Yiyan did not discover that her injury was not severe at all despite being such an intelligent man, was that her skin was too perfect.

    Si Yiyan took out the medical kit from beneath the glass coffee table and retrieved some ointment, which he then applied on her. “I taught you so many combat moves for self-defense, but you didn’t use them at all. You actually let that gigolo Chu Jingnan get near you.”

    Despite sounding cold and stern, Si Yiyan focused on the injury on her wrist as if there was nothing more important than that. He touched her lightly and carefully, for fear that he would cause her the slightest bit of pain.

    Si Yiyan felt like his ointment-applying techniques had gotten better. However, the thought of the reason for his improvement… made his face grow sullen.

    Feeling a little guilty, Wen Xinya frantically said, “It was just an accident. I won’t let him get near me next time.”

    Si Yiyan glanced at her and questioned, “This happened several times before… is there still going to be a next time?”

    Wen Xinya began to feel more and more remorseful. She frantically shook her head and promised. “There won’t be another time. I promise.”

    Si Yiyan refused to give in. “From tomorrow onwards, you shall train for half an hour more than usual.”

    Upon hearing his words, Wen Xinya pursed her lips in displeasure and protested. “Si Yiyan, how can you do this? I’m already very busy with revising for the final examinations. I don’t have time to train!”

    Wen Xinya began cursing Chu Jingnan in her head again. If it weren’t because of him, she wouldn’t be punished by Si Yiyan. She decided to avoid him at all costs.

    “Be good. With Teacher Xiasi around, you’ll no longer have to worry about revision.” Si Yiyan raised her arm and applied some ointment on her wrist meticulously before blowing it dry, lest she rub it off by accident.

    Wen Xinya felt a little embarrassed at the thought of the times that they had gotten intimate lately, during which he pervertedly demanded that she address him as “Teacher Xiasi”. The most terrifying thing… was that he would get agitated whenever she complied.

    Could this be a men’s fetish?

    Si Yiyan massaged her wrist gently to increase absorption and aid the bruise in dissipating. “You have to work on your marksmanship too. If any man gets near you again, just kill him.”

    Yes! He would never allow other women to get near him and he decided that he had to make her do the same. Every part of her belonged to him, be it her hair or her body parts. He would not allow any other man to touch them.

    Yes… it was settled then.

    Wen Xinya was beyond embarrassed. She had merely gotten into physical contact with another man and he expected her to kill him. What logic was that!?! Must he be so petty and twisted!?!

    Si Yiyan had no idea what Wen Xinya was thinking. He let go of her wrist gently and said, “Don’t let your wrist get into contact with water. Don’t overexert it either.”

    Wen Xinya moved her wrist gently, only to discover that it had miraculously stopped hurting. She leaped into Si Yiyan’s arms and began behaving coquettishly again.
