Chapter 1059: The Elder Sets the Example for His Juniors
Wen Xinya’s words gave Ning Shuqian a great shock as she wondered to herself,
After calming herself down, Ning Shuqian said, “Xinya, Yuya has always been obedient and she never fails to tell me anything about her life. However, I’ve never heard about the existence of a boyfriend before. Did you make a mistake?”
She was just trying to comfort herself by telling herself that Ning Yuya definitely wouldn’t hide her boyfriend from her.
Seemingly having not noticed Ning Shuqian’s expressions, Wen Xinya answered, “I don’t think so! That man kept hugging Yuya, and the two of them seemed to be rather intimate. I asked Yuya if he was her boyfriend, and I found it strange because she didn’t deny it. I didn’t expect that she would have such a peculiar taste in men…”
Wen Xinya smiled continuously and sounded as if she was in disbelief when she said the last part of her sentence.
“Xinya, you shouldn’t spout nonsense.” Staring at the smile on Wen Xinya’s face which looked just like the warm yet burning sun, Ning Shuqian suddenly felt like her throat had turned dry as she felt a strong urge to rip Wen Xinya’s face apart.
She was not naive and ignorant. Had she not known the harmful effects of drugs, she wouldn’t have used them against Wen Xinya. Regardless of how silly she may be, she would definitely know what happened.
She actually became addicted to drugs.
Ning Yuya was the daughter whom Ning Shuqian had given birth to after ten months of pregnancy and painstakingly raised. She was her flesh and blood and her only hope in life. Yet, she had been reduced to such a pathetic state. She did not expect her daughter to be living worse than her.
She had once imagined the future that her daughter would have. However, Ning Yuya’s future was now ruined by Wen Xinya.
Not bothered by the menacing look on Ning Shuqian’s face, she said, “Miss Ning, I remember that Ruya is five months younger than me! My coming-of-age ceremony took place not too long ago. Now that I think about it, Yuya is still underage. As her mother, you ought to advise her to stay at home and respect herself. It’s not good to get into a relationship so soon.”
Ning Shuqian was flabbergasted and she felt like her head was about to explode. She was overwhelmed with anger.
She clenched her jaw tightly as her body stiffened. Blood began to flow through the cracks of her teeth and blood filled her mouth.
She unclenched her jaw and said softly, “I heard that teenagers tend to become rebellious because of teenage angst. I was too sick to take Yuya in hand. Thank you for giving me a reminder.”
Ning Shuqian stared at Wen Xinya sultrily.
It was normal for teenagers to be rebellious, and Ning Shuqian was indirectly trying to remind Wen Xinya of her unkempt past before she returned to the Wen Family. Wen Xinya smiled and said, “Miss Ning, I’m here today because I have something to tell you.”
Ning Shuqian managed to tolerate Wen Xinya’s hidden attacks. Wen Xinya was surprised that Ning Shuqian could suppress her anger.
Overwhelmed with a complicated mix of emotions, Ning Shuqian suppressed her emotions and asked, “What are you talking about?”
Ning Shuqian’s heart began to palpitate as she wondered what Wen Xinya was about to say.
“Miss Ning, the Wen Family may have never acknowledged you as their daughter-in-law, but you’re indeed officially married to my father. You pretended to be pregnant and plotted against the Wen Family and caused so much trouble. You even made the Wen Family lose their reputation. They’re being kind enough to not chase you out of the family and hence, you ought to feel grateful towards them. If it weren’t because of the Wen Family, you wouldn’t be living so comfortably now. Hence, you must remember the kindness that we’ve shown you and take note of your behavior. Otherwise, we won’t let you off easily again.”
While Ning Shuqian’s expression changed, Wen Xinya smirked and gibed. “As a mother, you ought to set a good example for your daughter. Aren’t I… right?”
She was indirectly trying to say that Ning Shuqian had set a bad example for Ning Yuya by having a promiscuous personal life.
Her words had struck a sour note within Ning Shuqian.
There was no way Ning Shuqian could retort because she had lost her virginity at the age of fifteen and often slept with rich boys. She had also begun dating Ning Yuya’s father at a young age and ended up getting pregnant.
Ning Shuqian clenched her fists tightly and screeched. “Xinya, I’ve always remembered the kindness that the Wen Family has shown me. However, I don’t get what you’re trying to say about my behavior.”
Ning Shuqian was filled with anger and resentment, for she felt that Wen Xinya was just trying to mock her by repeating the fact that the Wen Family had shown her kindness, which was rather ironic. If it weren’t because of the Wen Family’s and Wen Haowen’s heartlessness and Wen Xinya’s viciousness, she wouldn’t have ended up in such a state.
Wen Xinya said calmly, “Miss Ning, you’re so gorgeous and ravishing that even women tend to be stunned by your beauty, what more a man. Now that you’re living alone in a nursing home, it’s only normal for men to come by and steal a glance or two at you. I just wanted to remind you to be mindful of your status and predicament, that’s all. So… Miss Ning, don’t overreact.”
Wen Xinya made it sound serious and a menacing glare formed in her eyes.
Ning Shuqian was speechless.
Wen Xinya wouldn’t have made a trip all the way down to the nursing home, just to say those words to her. Besides, Wen Xinya was obviously trying to give her a warning. She reckoned that Wen Xinya must have known about her reconciling with Wen Haowen, though she did not expose her. Instead, Wen Xinya simply used it to insult her.
Wen Xinya continued, “Miss Ning, ever since you moved into the nursing home, I’ve been paying attention to your condition. The doctor said that you haven’t made any improvements and that you’ve been experiencing fluctuations in your emotions. Hence, I suggest that you learn how to stay in your place and spend your remaining energy on nursing your body and educating your daughter. After all… your illness and Yuya both have something to do with the rest of your life.”
Ning Shuqian began to wonder,
However, she dared not make any conclusions because of Wen Xinya’s mysterious attitude.
Wen Xinya stood up and said, “That’s all I have to say.”
After Wen Xinya left, Ning Shuqian hurriedly called the man.
