Chapter 1058: The Peculiar Harmony
It was Wen Xinya’s first time visiting the nursing home which was situated in a pleasant environment near the mountains and river. It was considered to be a splendid location in the city. The elaborate environment planning also gave Wen Xinya the impression that they were in a small resort instead of a nursing home.
Wen Haowen was the one who carefully selected the nursing home which had a pleasant environment and superb facilities for Ning Shuqian. He was planning to keep her there for the rest of her life.
In the end…
Wen Xinya smirked slowly in a derisive manner, making her look cold and stern.
At this moment, Wen Xinya could sense that someone was staring at her.
She instinctively turned around, only to catch sight of a patient in her forties who was being wheeled away by a nurse.
Wen Xinya frowned slightly.
Liu Yanhua asked softly, “What’s the matter?”
Wen Xinya shook her head and said, “Nothing much.”
That gaze was rather bizarre and hair-raising for Wen Xinya.
At this moment, one of the nurses chased after the beautiful woman with a small rug.
“Madam Zhang, Madam Zhang, wait a minute!”
Wen Xinya took a quick glance before looking away.
Wen Xinya and Ning Shuqian were equally astonished to see each other.
Ning Shuqian, who was already in her late thirties, looked just like a beautiful woman who was about 27 or 28 years old. She exuded an alluring, sultry vibe from head to toe. Previously, Ning Shuqian still looked rather prim and proper. However, she now looked just like a seductress who worked at nightclubs.
It was no wonder that Wen Haowen couldn’t resist her charm.
Wen Xinya picked herself up and asked with a cold smile, “Miss Ning, aren’t you going to invite me in?”
Ning Shuqian subconsciously moved away and said smilingly, “Xinya, hurry and come take a seat.”
Wen Xinya’s sudden visit caught her off guard and made her flustered. The first thing that came to her mind was that Wen Xinya had already found out about her reconciling with Wen Haowen as well as the fact that she had something to do with the entertainment city project.
Wen Xinya slowly entered the room and scanned her surroundings with an ambiguous smile. “Seems like you’ve been living well lately, Miss Ning!”
It was just a nursing home, but Ning Shuqian lived in a luxurious three-bedder.
Ning Shuqian answered smilingly, “Your father has taken care of me on the account of our old ties.”
Despite feeling extremely resentful, Ning Shuqian did not let her emotions show on her face at all. In fact, she even kept up her sultry gaze. Since the entertainment city project had just begun, she couldn’t afford to get angry and provoke Wen Xinya. Hence, the only thing she could do was to bear with it.
She also had to deal with Wen Xinya carefully, regardless of the latter’s purpose of visit.
“Old ties?” Wen Xinya clipped before snorting with laughter. “Exactly!”
Ning Shuqian’s answer was rather seamless. Back then, not only did Wen Haowen not divorce Ning Shuqian, he even searched for a nursing home that she could be admitted to. Plenty of people said that he did that just because of their old ties.
Wen Xinya’s blatant mockery made Ning Shuqian’s heart skip a beat as she felt that Wen Xinya seemed to be different from before. She decided to keep her guard up after finding that Wen Xinya was tougher to deal with now, as compared to the past.
Wen Xinya shifted her gaze onto Ning Shuqian and scrutinized her openly. “I didn’t expect that you’d change so drastically within just four short months, Miss Ning. If you were to go out with Ning Yuya, others might just mistake you for her sister and not her mother.”
She changed drastically within a short period of time.
Wen Xinya was overwhelmed with inexplicable disbelief.
However, in her previous lifetime, she frequented nightclubs like Black Sunday and hence, knew that the owners often fed their hostesses with harmful and unknown drugs in order to help them retain their youth and beauty.
Ning Shuqian had probably used those methods to save her beauty.
Ning Shuqian burst into laughter and said, “At the end of the day, I’m still old and have to rely on aesthetic jabs to maintain my youthful appearance. I can’t compare to you girls who are truly young and beautiful.”
Ning Shuqian knew that there were major changes in her appearance, for the people she knew would frequently question her about her looks. Hence, she had long come up with an answer that she would tell to everyone. Recently, she had indeed gone for aesthetic jabs and hence, was not afraid that Wen Xinya would check up on it.
Wen Xinya continued, “Speaking of Yuya, I remember chancing upon her at a teahouse a few days ago. I wonder if she’s told you about it yet.”
Ning Shuqian may be vicious, but she was truly a benevolent mother to Ning Yuya.
Wen Xinya found it amusing that the two of them could maintain a miraculous harmony throughout the conversation, even though they were both scheming and conscientious.
Ning Shuqian could not help but be astounded. She calmed herself down and answered, “Yuya wants to learn about jewelry design, so I enrolled her for some jewelry design lessons. She’s very busy lately, so it’s been a few days since she came to visit me. However, she didn’t mention it to me.”
Since it was only a matter of time before the Wen Family found out about Ning Yuya’s jewelry design lessons, she openly revealed it to Wen Xinya. However, she did not know that Wen Xinya had run into Ning Yuya.
She felt that things were not that simple.
Wen Xinya was not surprised at all because Ning Yuya indeed had some flair for jewelry design. However, she was not competent enough. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have colluded with Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya in the previous lifetime to force Wen Xinya to give up jewelry design.
Wen Xinya smiled radiantly and exclaimed, “In that case, you definitely don’t know that Yuya has gotten herself a boyfriend, do you!?!”
Ever since history, the three vices had been closely related to each other. Those addicted to drugs would definitely have a complicated and promiscuous personal life. Ning Yuya meant the most to Ning Shuqian.
The best way to deal with someone was not to kill them at one go, but rather, it was to destroy their hope bit by bit and make them feel incredibly hopeless and agonized while struggling in your clutches.
