Chapter 1027: Wife, Concubine, Mistress
After the release of results, Wen Xinya became the subject of envy, for she had ranked second in the entire city.
Ning Shuqian’s plan to make an issue out of Wen Xinya’s failure to achieve a satisfactory score in the final examinations had been ruined because Wen Xinya turned out to have done well.
Ning Shuqian stared at the issue of Poise Magazine on the coffee table before dumping it into the rubbish bin with all her might. Due to her brilliant results, Poise Magazine published 300,000 more copies of the issue which Wen Xinya graced the cover page. According to the official website of Poise Magazine, it was estimated that all 300,000 copies would be sold out within three days.
Ning Shuqian felt as if the whole world was sucking up to Wen Xinya and putting her on a pedestal, especially those who branded her as a queen and described her with other honorary terms.
She began to feel like the entire world was going against her, putting her on the verge of despair.
Ning Shuqian was in the midst of raging.
All of a sudden, the door was opened and Wen Haowen appeared in her room. He asked smilingly, “Baby Qianqian, did you miss me?”
He had indeed been more restrained after receiving the warning from Old Mr. Wen. Hence, he no longer visited her as frequently as he did in the past and would never stay overnight either. He would head home, latest by twelve midnight.
Ning Shuqian immediately put on a charming sultriness and said in a coquettish voice, “It’s no wonder that people always say wives rank below concubines and concubines rank below illicit lovers. Are you addicted to the thrill of having a clandestine relationship?”
She behaved seductively while speaking.
Ning Shuqian was right. Wen Haowen was obsessed with her, mostly because he enjoyed the thrill of having a secret rendezvous and being all stealthy. He pinned Ning Shuqian down onto the bed as if he were the predator and she was prey. “Qianqian, you really do understand me. No woman in this world is as capable as you. You’re my wife-cum-concubine-cum-mistress. You can play all three roles at the same time and make me fall so hopelessly in love with you.”
Ning Shuqian said in a sweet voice, “Jerk…” She then pressed her finger against Wen Haowen’s lips gently and said, “You’ve got such a glib tongue. It’s no wonder that they say sweet nothings are a woman’s Achilles’ Heel.”
Wen Haowen was greatly enticed by her voice. However, teasing was not enough for him. With one hand, he pushed her legs apart slowly.
Ning Shuqian continued to tease him and the two of them proceeded to fool around in bed.
By the time they calmed down, it was already past twelve midnight, and Wen Haowen laid on the bed, panting heavily and reminiscing the thrill of the coitus.
Ning Shuqian laid on top of Wen Haowen and said in an alluring voice, “Haowen, you’re really impressive…”
Extremely pleased with her words, Wen Haowen pulled her into his arms, feeling an urge to go again, but unfortunately, his body did not allow him to do so. Hence, he began to wonder if he should take some viagra.
Ning Shuqian said softly, “Haowen, I heard that Wen Xinya managed to achieve a high score of 703 in the final examinations. Old Mr. Wen is in high spirits and he goes around showing off about her results. He even threw a banquet in Han Palace.”
Han Palace was an expensive and prestigious restaurant where the booking of a banquet would easily cost at least tens of millions of yuan. It was merely a celebration for her stellar results and yet, Old Mr. Wen went to such great lengths to throw a lavish banquet. He was obviously trying to bring glory to Wen Xinya.
The mention of it made a sullen expression form on Wen Haowen’s face. He snorted with laughter and said, “It’s just the final examinations. There’s nothing worth celebrating about. That old man just loves making a mountain out of molehills.”
He had put in a ton of energy and hard work into preparing for the construction of the entertainment city, but Old Mr. Wen failed to see his efforts. Wen Xinya had merely done well in her final examinations and yet, Old Mr. Wen kept bragging about her, as if he was afraid that others wouldn’t know how outstanding his granddaughter was.
Ning Shuqian sighed and said, “Seems like Old Mr. Wen is liking Wen Xinya more and more.”
Wen Xinya had merely returned to the Wen Family home for three years and yet, she had already secured a footing.
The more Old Mr. Wen liked her, the more likely she would continue being the successor.
Wen Xinya was no longer the gangster whom she used to be when she just reunited with the Wen Family.
Wen Haowen remained silent with a sullen expression on his face. He could tell that Old Mr. Wen had taken a great liking to Wen Xinya, which was also why he desperately wanted to manage the entertainment city project well and let Old Mr. Wen see that he was the true successor.
Ning Shuqian continued, “Haowen, Old Mr. Wen must be displeased with your decision to act before seeking his permission. The more he’s upset with you, the more he will regard Wen Xinya highly. At the end of the day, Old Mr. Wen is still the Chairman of the Wen Corporation and he owns such a large portion of the shares. His displeasure towards you will affect your position in the Wen Corporation.”
Wen Haowen’s adulterous affair made Old Mr. Wen feel extremely disappointed. That was the reason why he placed all his hopes onto Wen Xinya.
Wen Haowen definitely thought about that before since Secretary He had already mentioned it to him. However, there was nothing he could do if Old Mr. Wen disliked him. He couldn’t hold Old Mr. Wen at gunpoint!
Feeling sorry for him after seeing how frustrated he was, Ning Shuqian said, “Haowen, you only raised that proposal because you wanted to make more money for the Wen Corporation. Yet, Old Mr. Wen doesn’t understand your intentions at all and even treated you with such a harsh attitude. I know you’re feeling miserable.”
She sounded meticulous and understanding, and her words had struck a sour note within him. “No one understands me now, but they’ll know how capable I am once the entertainment city is built and the Wen Corporation earns a massive ton of money.”
He was certain that it was only a matter of time before he got on top of the world.
Appearing a little worried, Ning Shuqian said, “I’m just worried that your position in the Wen Corporation will be affected and the entertainment city project will be delayed.”
Although the shareholders had already approved of the entertainment city project, that was only the first step. It was difficult to build such a major construction that would require a large amount of manpower, resources, energy, and funds. Besides, the current amount of disposable funds that the Wen Corporation had was not enough for the project unless they channeled all of the Wen Corporation’s funds into the construction. However… it was clearly impossible.
Hence, she could imagine the problems that would arise because of the lack of funds. There would definitely be a lot of obstacles and the project might just fall through after several unsuccessful attempts.
The most important thing that she had to do now was to get rid of all the potential problems and do her best to push for the construction of the entertainment city.
