Chapter 918: The Joker Invited by the Monkeys
Si Yiyan glanced at her and asked, “What did you call me?”
Wen Xinya cringed and answered obediently, “Yan!”
Si Yiyan fed her the grape and exclaimed, “Good!”
Wen Xinya pouted and thought to herself, Isn’t it just a different way of addressing him? Must he be so tyrannical and petty? How fussy!
Si Yiyan peeled another grape and fed it to her. “Feed me!”
He sounded demanding and austere as if he was not to be defied.
Wen Xinya had no choice but to succumb. Sucking on the grape, she moved her lips closer to his and fed it to him.
Si Yiyan savored the grape and her lips at the same time as if he were an ancient emperor. He was in immense bliss.
Just as they were acting lovey-dovey with each other, the door of the room was flung open by the dimwit Xu Xianghu, who stood still with his eyes and mouth wide open, staring at their intimate exchange.
He was greeted with the sight of Wen Xinya sitting on Si Yiyan’s lap with a vibrant, gemstone-like grape in between her rosy lips. Her neck was slender and as fair as jade.
Si Yiyan was biting on the grape in her mouth and tasting her tender lips while the grape juices trickled down her clean and fair neck…
Si Yiyan began to trace his lips down her neck and all the way to her chest…
It was such a wonderful sight!
He felt like poking himself blind.
He actually unknowingly walked in on them behaving intimately with each other. For some reason, he broke out into cold sweat which trickled down his back continuously. He was filled with a sudden ominous feeling.
Sensing an icy cold glance being shot at him, he immediately snapped out of his trance and spluttered. “I… hehe! You guys continue. I didn’t see anything, I really didn’t…”
He then speedily retreated out of the door, after which he closed it and leaned against the wall, panting heavily.
At this moment, Gu Yuehan and Yueze walked towards the room to see that Xu Xianghu was standing outside. They found it extremely strange because he had always been eager and impatient. Hence, it was rare that he did not barge in straightaway.
Yueze asked, “Xianghu, what are you doing waiting outside the door?”
Xu Xianghu rushed forward at the instant that he saw the two of them as if they were his life saviors. “Yueze, there’s a major crisis on earth. I want to go back to Mars!”
Gu Yuehan stared at the two of them, one of whom was buff while the other, slender. He was filled with a strange feeling after witnessing the peculiar sight.
Yueze grabbed his arm and threw the 1.9m-tall Xu Xianghu over his shoulder relentlessly, causing the latter to fall onto the ground with a loud thud.
Yueze stared at him and said, “Get straight to the point.”
Just as Xu Xianghu was wondering how he should tell him about him walking in on Si Yiyan, the door of the room was pushed open. Standing by the door and staring at them, Wen Xinya said, “Si Yiyan wants you guys to go in!”
They entered the room.
Si Yiyan sat on the couch sluggishly with a look of satisfaction on his face. He no longer appeared as formidable or daunting as he usually was.
Wen Xinya sat beside him.
The few of them could all sense that something was amiss, though they could not accurately deduce just what was wrong.
Xu Xianghu sat with his back as straight as a ruler as if stepping on eggshells. He would steal a glance at Si Yiyan every now and then before scanning Wen Xinya’s rosy lips. They were much more alluring than the ruby-like grapes on the table.
It was all Si Yiyan’s doing.
Sensing him staring at her, Wen Xinya glared at him coldly and questioned, “Is there something on my face? Why do you keep staring at me?”
Xu Xianghu could also sense that Si Yiyan was staring at him in a threatening manner. He immediately shook his head profusely and denied. “No, no! I just thought about you teaching Anatoli a lesson just now, Sis-in-law. You were so brave and suave…”
No one answered him.
Xu Xianghu continued, “Sis-in-law, you’re really impressive. You’re my idol! You have no idea how much I detest that rascal Anatoli right from the start. I’ve long wanted to teach him a lesson. Hehe…”
Wen Xinya looked down and sipped on some tea.
Xu Xianghu continued to rattle on, “Sis-in-law, I didn’t expect that you’d have such quick reflexes and impressive combat skills. You should have seen how pale that old fogy got at that moment. Even Duke Moville’s face turned sullen…”
Yueze and Gu Yuehan looked at each other in the eye, wondering to themselves that Xu Xianghu must have offended Si Yiyan and Wen Xinya!
Si Yiyan interrupted. “You’ve worked for me for so long and yet, you don’t seem to be improving at all. I’ve already called Gu Yuexi. You’ll be going to Italy to learn from him tomorrow.”
Xu Xianghu’s eyes widened in shock and he pleaded in despair. “Please don’t do that, Ninth Young Master! Gu Yuexi’s place is practically a living hell. I won’t walk in on you and Sis-in-law flirting with each other again. Please just be magnanimous and forgive me this once!”
He knew that he would definitely be in hot soup this time…
Gu Yuehan and Yueze again looked at each other. It was no wonder that Xu Xianghu had been standing outside the door just now. It turns out he had prevented Si Yiyan and Wen Xinya from having a good time. They stared at Xu Xianghu with a look of sympathy, though the look in their eyes seemed to be saying, “You deserve it!”
Wen Xinya glanced at Xu Xianghu as her lips curled into a smirk!
She resembled a villainous concubine in the ancient days.
Si Yiyan decided to stop giving Xu Xianghu attention. He looked at the other two of his subordinates and asked, “Has there been any news from Moville and Duke Mo?”
Duke Moville had thrown the banquet mainly because of the Ivanov Family. Yet, Wen Xinya ruined everything before the main show even began. Duke Moville and Duke Mo were not to be trifled with and, although they seemed to have let it slide on the surface, they might not have actually let it go. Hence, he reckoned that they must have had other plans.
Yueze answered, “Duke Moville has gone to the study together with Anatoli while Duke Mo is still at the banquet. Everything’s going fine.”
Wen Xinya’s actions were truly astonishing. He might not have been able to execute it so perfectly if put in her position.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “We may have made the first move and gave Duke Moville a warning, but he probably has other plans. We mustn’t let our guards down.”
Yueze answered with a nod, “Got it, Ninth Young Master!”
Si Yiyan stared at Gu Yuehan and said, “Gu Yuehan, I’ll leave you to protect Xinya. You must ensure her safety!”
The climax of the banquet was about to begin, and he wouldn’t be able to look after Wen Xinya at the same time. Hence, it was best to leave her in Gu Yuehan’s care, just to be safe.
Gu Yuehan assured. “Don’t worry, Ninth Young Master. I’ll definitely ensure Sis-in-law’s safety.”
He had always protected Si Yiyan. However, Wen Xinya mattered much more to Si Yiyan than his own life did. Hence, he would naturally do his best to protect her.
