Chapter 1031: Chancing Upon Ning Yuya
There was something fishy about the project for the entertainment city. Wen Xinya and Grandpa both acutely guessed that behind the scenes, there was someone manipulating Wen Haowen to push for this project. Both of them wanted to make use of the entertainment city project to lure the other party out from hiding. However, the other party was not someone to be belittled either. Before this project formally commenced, they had started to get rid of both internal and external troubles by suggesting to form a new department and even change the staff.
In their first exchange, she was completely at a disadvantage.
Thus, she decided to go to the Wen Corporation’s Director’s Meeting happening in three days’ time.
In her heart, Wen Xinya kept guessing who exactly was the person behind this. Such a shady way of operating bore a resemblance to the person behind Ning Shuqian. However, now that Ning Shuqian and Wen Haowen had fallen out, how did the other party manipulate Wen Haowen?
Wen Xinya was deep in her thoughts when a commotion broke out outside.
“What, there’s already someone in the room—who is it? Get that person’s ass out—I use this room every time I come.” The man spoke in a loud, arrogant, and seemingly unrestrained manner.
Wen Xinya heard the service staff explain to that man.
However, that man didn’t accept it at all. “Let me tell you, I’m insistent on using this room today…”
Just then, an arrogant female voice said, “You guys better wise up and make arrangements as soon as possible! Brother Liu simply likes this room and is really unwilling to use any others.”
Wen Xinya frowned slightly. She had already met Secretary Cao and finished using this room. If the other party was really keen on it, there was no harm in her settling the bill and hand the room over to them. However, their arrogant attitude irked her.
Wen Xinya slowly walked up to and pulled open the door. Instantly, she stood face to face with the people standing by the door.
“Wen Xinya, it’s you…” The woman’s voice was sharp and seemingly somewhat in disbelief.
Wen Xinya’s lips slowly curled up coldly. “Ning Yuya, long time no see.”
It had indeed been a long time since she last saw Ning Yuya. Hence, she was really slightly shocked to meet her now—it was really such a small world.
Ning Yuya put away her stunned expression and asked plainly, “Wen Xinya, what are you doing here?”
She spoke in a slightly questioning tone and didn’t look good at all. The fact that Wen Xinya scored 703 points for her final examinations was still a thorn in her flesh, making her feel bad every time she recalled it.
Wen Xinya simply said, “It’s none of your business.”
Wen Xinya sized up the so-called Brother Liu standing beside Ning Yuya discreetly. He was about 1.9m tall, tanned, had a strong build comparable to Xu Xianghu, had an eye-patch over one of his eyes, revealing the other one to the world, his face was filled with black stubble, and he looked extremely fierce—one look and you knew that he was from the underworld and was not to be trifled with.
Why would Ning Yuya hang out with someone like this?
She peered down, saw that the man had placed his dark, big hand on Ning Yuya’s hip, and Ning Yuya didn’t seem to mind—it spoke volumes about the physical relationship between the pair.
Ning Yuya was precisely on the path that she had taken in her previous lifetime.
Hanging out and having sexual relationships with different men in order to get more money to sustain her drug addiction.
Ning Yuya sneered and said, “I heard that you’ve gotten the good results of 703 points in the final examinations. My good sister, did you cheat—I heard that many people cheated in the final examinations this year and many of them have already been caught. You better watch out.”
Wen Xinya replied plainly, “Watch your words. Whether I cheated or not, it will naturally be dealt with by the Institute and Ministry of Education and not to be second-guessed by you.” Then, she changed the topic and said in an even milder tone, “However, after not seeing you for a long time, you’re really something now, actually making a din like this in public—what happened to your class and manners?”
Ning Yuya turned pale with anger. “Shut up.”
Wen Xinya continued saying, “However, given that you’d been raised in the Wen Family for more than a decade and received the best education, your class and manners shouldn’t be too bad.”
Ning Yuya totally didn’t know how to react to her sarcasm.
She gritted her teeth, completely at a loss for words, and her welled-up eyes looked towards Brother Liu beside her.
Brother Liu was at the peak of his passion for Ning Yuya, and, seeing his lover’s pitiful and sorry look, his heart sank as he looked at Wen Xinya viciously.
Wen Xinya didn’t give him a chance to speak before she looked at Ning Yuya and said, “Yuya, is this gentleman your boyfriend? When did you get one? Does Ning Shuqian know?”
Ning Yuya was stunned. She had known Brother Liu from a bar and happened to know that he had hundreds of men working under him, managed a number of bars, was wealthy, and generous. Although he was quite a handful and liked to play tricks in bed, she didn’t mind it. They were not in a conventional relationship.
Wen Xinya pretended not to see Ning Yuya’s awkward expression, covered her mouth, giggled, and said, “Previously I felt that you have pretty good taste. I didn’t expect you to have an appetite for a man like this.”
Who would like a man like this—Ning Yuya held back the impulse to scream.
This Brother Liu was totally a boorish old man who thought that he was so great just because of his filthy money. He behaved completely like an instant millionaire—how could she like a man like this.
She liked his money.
However, in front of Brother Liu, she was totally speechless. She forced a smile. “Brother Liu treats me very well.”
She wasn’t lying. He was very generous to her—just yesterday, he had bought a necklace worth hundreds of thousands of yuan.
Wen Xinya simply smiled.
Ning Yuya looked at her plain smile which seemed to mock at her sarcastically—this made it hard for her to stomach. She took in a deep breath, suppressed the fury in her heart, and told herself that Wen Xinya wouldn’t have the upper hand forever—she wouldn’t be so glamorous forever.
Mother had become young and beautiful and linked up with Wen Haowen again. Sooner or later, she would return to the Wen Family, and Wen Xinya would suffer.
Thus, she said somewhat smugly, “Wen Xinya, wait and see.”
Saying which, she tugged at that Brother Liu and left.
Wen Xinya looked at Ning Yuya’s straightened spine and highly-held head—such a poise didn’t exist when she met Ning Yuya at the bar the other time. Was she indeed fearless?
Wen Xinya sent a message to the Celestial Detective Agency and told them to stop following Wen Haowen and send people to watch Ning Shuqian.
A chance that Ning Shuqian would link up with Wen Haowen again still existed!
She was almost blinded by Ning Shuqian’s show of weakness recently and actually neglected this character for a moment—what a mistake.
