Chapter 907: The Sun Shines Down Brightly
Russian social etiquette and formalities were extremely complicated, though they paled in comparison to Ancient Chinese etiquette. Hence, Wen Xinya managed to master the Russian etiquette within a short period of time, as well as the other matters that she had to take note of.
After finishing lunch at 12 noon, she took an hour-long nap. Liu Yanhua then brought her to a beauty salon for a facial!
Liu Yanhua had arranged a facial in the best beauty salon in Russia, which lasted two whole hours. After the facial session, she looked extremely radiant, and it was already four in the afternoon by the time she returned to the mansion.
The banquet began at six in the afternoon and Wen Xinya had already prepared everything. However, Si Yiyan had yet to come home.
Wen Xinya began to feel a little worried. “Yanhua, when will Ninth Young Master be back?”
“Missy, don’t worry. Perhaps, Ninth Young Master had to handle something that cropped up at the last minute,” said Liu Yanhua, who was feeling a little uncertain.
Si Yiyan clearly said that he would return before the start of the banquet. However, it was already eight in the evening and he had yet to come back. Although Liu Yanhua didn’t think he had met with any mishap, she guessed that he must have been held up by something. After all, Si Yiyan had been living in China for a long time and he rarely returned to Russia within the past few years.
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and said, “You may go out first. I’d like to be alone for a while.”
She rubbed her temples and thought to herself, Russia might not be Si Yiyan’s territory, but Si Yiyan holds great power and authority here. There can’t be any accidents.
I should stop dwelling on it.
Upon hearing some noises coming from the room, she said softly, “Yanhua, didn’t I tell you to go out first?”
Before Wen Xinya could even react, she felt a palm on her shoulder. Scrutinizing the reflection in the mirror, she said, “I’m sorry, I’m late.”
Wen Xinya turned around agitatedly to see that Si Yiyan was gazing at her smilingly. She smiled and said, “I remember that the banquet begins at six. It’s already 6:05 PM now. We’re going to be late by the time you get ready.”
Although Si Yiyan did not take Moville seriously, the latter was still one of the most prestigious dukes in the nation, and it would be better to give him some face.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “Russians are never punctual. When in Rome, we have to do as Romans do.”
Russians were laid back and led slower-paced lives. Hence, they were all rather satisfied with maintaining the status quo and society was much simpler.
Wen Xinya snorted with laughter. She could guarantee that Si Yiyan was just making excuses for being late. “Be good, cut it out and go get ready!”
Si Yiyan sucked her earlobe gently and rubbed his face against hers. Having not seen her all day, he realized that he missed her, and he just wanted to shower her with love and affection. “20 minutes, give me 20 minutes. We’ll leave at 6:30 sharp!”
While they were talking, he had already moved his hand onto her soft bosoms.
Wen Xinya hurriedly dodged and said coquettishly, “Si Yiyan, cut it out. I still have makeup on my face. The makeup artist and stylist spent lots of time working on me. I’ll have to redo everything if it gets messy.”
Despite feeling helpless, she quite liked the fact that he stuck to her right after he returned.
Si Yiyan looked at her pristine ensemble and thought to himself that it would take at least five minutes to remove her dress and another five minutes to put it on. Out of the 20 minutes that they had to spare, most of it would be wasted on getting undressed and dressed again.
He had no choice but to accept it. Time waits for no man!
Si Yiyan asked, “Baby, isn’t it time to change the way we address each other?”
He and Wen Xinya had always been addressing each other by their names, and Wen Xinya even called him by his full name. Although he liked how coquettish she sounded, he felt that they could be more affectionate and endearing after seeing how his close friend Nord addressed her affectionately when he was at Eva’s house earlier today.
“How do you want to change it?” asked Wen Xinya, who had no opinion.
It was just a change in the way they addressed each other, anyway.
Si Yiyan suggested. “Why don’t you address me the same way as you did when we were in Nantong?”
Wen Xinya answered with a pout, “No, once I call you ‘Si’, I won’t be able to resist the urge to address you by your full name.”
She did not think that addressing him by his full name made them feel distant from each other. In fact, she found it to be casual. Besides, she was comfortable enough to address him in any way she liked.
Hugging her waist, Si Yiyan smiled and bit her ear affectionately. “Why don’t I call you my wife while you call me your husband? That’s more affectionate.”
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and exclaimed, “Si Yiyan, why are you so mushy!?!”
What is he doing?
