Chapter 1024: They Had Already Become Her Maiden Family
Wen Xinya’s mobile phone began to ring just as the atmosphere was getting livelier.
It was Si Yiyan.
Wen Xinya wanted to answer the call in the washroom or the bar where there was more privacy. To her surprise, Zhou Tianyu was quick to react and hurriedly grabbed Wen Xinya’s purse, unzipped it and retrieved her mobile phone. After realizing that it was not ringing, she proceeded to rummage through Wen Xinya’s purse and grabbed the second apple-green mobile phone.
Wen Xinya subconsciously snatched her mobile phone away.
Zhou Tianyu immediately raised it high above in the air and teased. “Previously, I’ve already found it strange that you owned a custom-made Savelli. I was wondering how you got such an expensive mobile phone out of nowhere. It turns out he was the one who gave it to you.”
Zhou Tianyu had already discovered her mobile phone two years ago, though she stopped paying attention after Wen Xinya said that it was a gift from a friend.
Xu Tongxuan chimed in. “This must be the mobile phone that you use to contact him! Xinya… you’re really something. You actually already got into a relationship with Mr. Perfect such a long time ago and yet, you still managed to hide it from us so well.”
Now, she was 99% certain that Si Yiyan must have appeared at Lan Feng Institute when Wen Xinya was set up by Jiang Ruoyin and the rest, all because of Wen Xinya.
In hindsight, she realized that he was defending Wen Xinya back then by berating Wen Xinya’s teacher who was rather old. He had also embarrassed Chu Jingnan, the then president of the student union.
He had invested in Lanfeng Institute, clearly with other intentions.
Wen Xinya stood up to grab her mobile phone. “Tianyu, my good sister… my mobile phone has been ringing for such a long time. Just take it that you’re doing a kind deed and let me answer the call…”
Xu Tongxuan was extremely thrilled.
It was not that Zhou Tianyu did not want to let her answer the call. Instead, she was merely teasing her. “Sure, but you have to answer the call here.”
Gu Junling chimed in. “Answer it here, answer it here, answer it here…”
Ling Qingxuan giggled and said, “We’re singletons, but we won’t mind if you display your affection for your boyfriend in front of us. There’s nothing for you to feel strange about.”
Han Mofeng watched the scene before him, wondering how he should answer to Xu Zhenyu.
What was going on?
Hence, he snuggled into Du Ruo’s embrace for comfort. Du Ruo thought to herself,
Wen Xinya had no choice but to concede.
As soon as she answered, Si Yiyan questioned, “Why did you take so long to pick up the phone?”
The room was so quiet that one could hear the sounds of a pin dropping. The Savelli mobile phone would block out miscellaneous noises and hence, everyone could hear Si Yiyan’s voice.
Intimidated by the threatening looks on her friends’ faces, Wen Xinya said, “I was too busy playing with my friends, so I didn’t hear my phone ringing.”
Si Yiyan fell silent all of a sudden.
Her friends wondered curiously,
Shouldn’t couples speak to each other in a lovey-dovey manner over the phone?
Just as they were trying to figure out what was going on, Si Yiyan said, “I am Si Yiyan, Xinya’s current boyfriend and fianceé. I’m also her future husband and the father of her future child. Thank you all for taking care of Xinya.”
Everyone was dumbfounded. Was he talking to them?
He sounded extremely stern and domineering. It was as if Wen Xinya had already belonged to him and that they had become her maiden family.
Han Mofeng thought to himself,
Everyone looked at each other, at a complete loss for words.
Wen Xinya smirked smugly.
Zhou Tianyu smiled wryly and answered, “Since you’re Xinya’s boyfriend and future husband, I shall not stand on ceremony with you. In China, we often place emphasis on gaining our parents’ approval before getting married. Have you and Xinya obtained the approval of your parents?”
Xu Tongxuan gave her a thumbs up and mouthed the words, “Nice one, Sister!”
Zhou Tianyu raised her brows smugly and exclaimed, “Of course!”
As Wen Xinya’s maiden family, she had to be shrewd.
Du Ruo stared at Zhou Tianyu in awe and admiration.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “Xinya and I are both in love with each other and Heaven can testify for us. Of course… I do hope that you guys can vouch for us and give us your blessings too.”
It was as if he had undermined Zhou Tianyu’s words and rendered her speechless.
Firstly, he stated that he and Wen Xinya were truly in love with each other.
Secondly, he also pointed out that they did not need the approval of each others’ parents since they had the freedom to date whoever they wanted.
Thirdly, the last thing he said was the best line! He was just trying to say that their love was true and strong enough to withstand all tests.
Zhou Tianyu backed down while Xu Tongxuan took over. “Seems like you’re already planning to marry Xinya. I shall not say anything, then. When do you plan to take the time out of your schedule to meet us? Mr. Si, we may be in no place to meddle with Xinya’s life, but we won’t let you dupe her easily.”
Xu Tongxuan was clearly just threatening him and trying to tell him that they would give him a hard time if he were to disregard them.
Ling Qingxuan swirled the red wine in front of her. Brilliant!
Xu Tongxuan ignored him nonchalantly, all proud and smug.
Si Yiyan laughed and said, “You must be Miss Xu! I keep hearing about you guys from Xinya, and I know that you guys are her most important friends. I haven’t been honest with you guys about my relationship with Xinya, and I know that that’s my mistake. I still have some important things to see to in Russia. Once I’m done, I’ll return and invite you guys to dinner as a form of apology.”
He sounded polite yet natural and confident. He was also sincere and there was no flaw in his words at all.
Xu Tongxuan had also lost.
The two of them glanced at Du Ruo. Sensing the intense gazes in their eyes, she pointed at herself, as if trying to say, “Me?”
The two of them nodded fervently.
