Chapter 1021: The Legendary King of Shaming Others
Wen Xinya was shocked to see the petals on the dressing table.
She opened the drawer below the dining table and took out a sandalwood box before opening it, only to discover that it contained a small and shiny golden bullet. It was hard to imagine that such a small bullet would possess such lethal destructive power.
A red string passed through two holes in the bullet, on which a beautiful design was carved, making it look pretty and exquisite.
The bullet was the one that Si Yiyan took for her while they were on their way back from Duke Moville’s banquet. After the doctor removed the bullet from Si Yiyan’s body, she secretly kept the bullet with her. As soon as she returned to China, she commissioned a renowned carver and craftsman to turn the bullet into a beautiful necklace.
Wen Xinya slowly removed the glass and jade Buddha pendant on her neck before putting the bullet necklace on.
The dull gold looked rather unassuming and menacing. Wen Xinya stroked the bullet gently with her fingers and began to space out.
Then, her mobile phone rang and disrupted the silence of the room.
Greatly taken aback, she wondered,
Of course, she did not dwell on it any further and instead reacted immediately. It was a call from Si Yiyan.
Wen Xinya laid on the bed and grabbed the mobile phone while rolling on the bed in excitement. She then answered the call.
“Have the results been released? How did you do?” Si Yiyan asked while sitting on the couch, reeking of gunpowder. He was clad in a dark green shirt which made him look lean, refined and formidable.
Wen Xinya suppressed her joy and excitement before answering, “Yes, the results were released an hour ago. I think I did rather well.”
Wen Xinya was just being modest.
Having heard the tinge of smugness in her voice, Si Yiyan asked proudly, “How many points did you score?”
Si Yiyan typed away furiously while speaking on the phone. He had already had a rough estimate of how she would do in the exam. However, she often felt that she was not intelligent enough.
Wen Xinya exclaimed confidently, “Make a guess!”
All orders were given out with the mere pointing of his slender and nimble fingers. “I’m guessing that you scored more than 700 points.”
The questions of the final examination were released right after the exams ended. Si Yiyan analyzed all the questions and deduced that Wen Xinya would score at least 700 points.
Wen Xinya bit her lip and questioned, “How did you know? Tell me honestly, did you call Grampy already? Was Grampy the one who told you?”
After the questions were released online, she proceeded to estimate her final score and deduced that she would achieve a score of 680 and above. To her surprise, she actually did exceptionally well and scored 703. She felt disappointed to hear that Si Yiyan was better at predicting scores than her.
Si Yiyan smiled and teased. “Silly girl, I’m Teacher Xiasi for a reason.”
He intentionally emphasized “Teacher Xiasi” in a romantic manner.
Wen Xinya turned red and thought about the times when she got intimate with Si Yiyan just so he would agree to give her tuition. He had also forced her to address him as “Teacher Xiasi” whenever they got intimate.
Si Yiyan could imagine how furious she was at the moment. He chuckled and probed. “Hurry and tell Teacher Xiasi how many points you scored.”
He continued to tease her.
Turning as red as a tomato, Wen Xinya pouted and said, “I scored 703, coming in second in the cohort. The list and rankings of scores of all candidates in the nation have yet to be released, but the principal said that I would probably rank second in the nation.”
She began to sound even smugger.
Si Yiyan said, “Baby, you’re really something. I’ve looked through the questions for the past year examinations. The questions this year are much tougher than those of the past. I bet there are less than 20 people who can score more than 700. I’m so proud of you.”
He had made the correct guess. She had indeed done exceptionally well. It was no wonder that she could be so smug.
Pouting her lips, Wen Xinya said, “I reckon everyone in the upper-class circle is going crazy. My forums, blogs, and public page are all crashing. I have a new nickname. What do you think it is?”
Wen Xinya excitedly told him about the outrage sparked by her results.
Listening quietly, Si Yiyan asked softly, “What is it?”
Grinning widely from ear to ear, she said, “The King Of Being Conflicted! I can’t believe they came up with such a hilarious term.”
Si Yiyan was filled with joy as he listened to her rattle on and on because of how excited she was while sharing her happiness about her results.
He did not think that the final examinations were a standard used to measure one’s capabilities. However, her impeccable results had also proved her hard work. Hence, he was happy for her.
Wen Xinya continued to babble on and on before mentioning about Zhou Tianyu and the rest. “They’re planning to hold a celebratory dinner for me tonight…”
Si Yiyan interjected. “You’re not allowed to get drunk.”
The thought of Wen Xinya acting hysterically in a drunken stupor gave Si Yiyan a major headache. He was worried that she would get drunk and let other men take advantage of her, or mistakenly kiss and hug other men.
Si Yiyan emphasized. “Let Liu Yanhua accompany you.”
Wen Xinya burst into laughter and expressed assent embarrassedly the moment she recalled the times when she got drunk.
Si Yiyan felt a sense of relief.
Wen Xinya exclaimed, “Yan!”
“Mmm!” Si Yiyan nodded.
After a moment of silence, Wen Xinya said, “You must come back quickly. I’ve already informed Zhou Tianyu and the rest about our relationship. They’re complaining and urging for us to treat them to a meal.”
Si Yiyan’s eyes lit up with excitement and joy. “Sure! I’ll be back as soon as I settle the matters here.”
Wen Xinya ended the call and stared at the screen of her mobile phone while fiddling with the bullet pendant on her neck. She laughed and thought to herself,
