Chapter 1078: It’s My Fortune to Have Married You
At this juncture, Ning Shuqian had also been informed of Wen Xinya’s successful admission to Capital University. She immediately flew into a rage and smashed everything in the room. Even the joyous event of getting discharged from the nursing home was not enough to make her stop feeling angry and resentful.
She thought about her own daughter, Ning Yuya.
When Wen Xinya was first brought home, she and Wen Yuya were still sitting high on their pedestals and looking down on the uncouth and boorish Wen Xinya condescendingly while mocking her for being shameless and silly.
However, the tables had turned and Wen Xinya was now the one mocking them.
She would never forget the disdain in Wen Xinya’s tone when Wen Xinya looked her up in the nursing home. It was as if she were talking about a filthy and shameless thing which would dirty her mouth, should she continue talking about it.
What rights do Wen Xinya have to enjoy that?
Hence, she hired someone to check up on Ning Yuya, only to realize that her daughter whom she always felt was more outstanding than Wen Xinya, turned out to have been lying to her all along. In fact, Ning Yuya had been frequenting nightclubs, night entertainment joints and even became a drug addict and an alcoholic. She would often get into fights, smoke and mess around with different men.
She called Ning Yuya and got her to come and look for her.
Upon sight of Ning Yuya, Ning Shuqian flew into a rage and beat her up. However, her heart turned soft when she saw Ning Yuya laying on the ground feebly, shivering and bawling.
She begged that man to think of a way to help Ning Yuya kick her drug addiction, but her efforts were futile because he turned her down. Hence, she was feeling hopeless.
The feeling of despair made her feel extremely resentful towards Wen Xinya and the Wen Family.
“Qianqian, what are you thinking about?” asked a voice, which made Ning Shuqian snap out of her trance.
Cold sweat trickled down Ning Shuqian’s back continuously as she wondered if Wen Haowen had caught sight of her being angry. Hence, she carefully observed Wen Haowen and heaved a sigh of relief when she saw how calm he was.
Ning Shuqian smiled and said, “I was just thinking about the entertainment city.”
Upon hearing her words, Wen Haowen frantically asked, “What’s the matter? Hurry and tell me about it.”
Secretary He told him that he had caught sight of Madam Zhang handing a document to Ning Shuqian at the nursing home when he was settling the administrative procedures for her discharge.
Hence, he headed straight to Ning Shuqian’s apartment after work.
Ning Shuqian obviously understood Wen Haowen’s concerns. Intentionally trying to keep him in suspense, she exclaimed, “Ah! My shoulder is really achy all of a sudden.”
Her coquettish voice was absolutely alluring, so much that it sent an electrifying wave down Wen Haowen’s spine. Not to mention, he was a lecherous man who could not resist the charm of women.
Wen Haowen hurriedly said, “I’ll give you a massage.”
He then placed his hands on Ning Shuqian’s shoulders and massaged her.
Although Wen Haowen was a male chauvinist, he still lowered his pride to give her massage for he felt that it was just a romantic exchange between a married couple. Hence, he did not take it to heart.
Ning Shuqian enjoyed the massage while eating some fruits without feeling a tinge of guilt at all. Wen Haowen would even kowtow to her without hesitation for the sake of the entertainment city.
Wen Haowen leaned closer towards Ning Shuqian and asked, “How’s it? Do you feel good being served by me?”
He sounded rather flirtatious.
Pretending to be calm, Ning Shuqian answered, “It’s alright.”
Wen Haowen giggled and said, “Well…”
He purposely dragged his sentence.
Ning Shuqian decided not to push her limits. Hence, she whipped out the document from beneath the table and handed it to Wen Haowen. “I got this from Madam Zhang. I don’t know if it’s going to be of any use to you.”
Ning Shuqian looked rather smug.
Wen Haowen frantically grabbed it and opened it eagerly without hesitation. He got a great shock at the instant that he saw a stack of resumes.
Ning Shuqian explained, “Before Madam Zhang’s husband passed away, he tried to hire some talents who could work on the entertainment city project. Later on, the project had to be terminated because of the demises of her husband and son. Those people were then dismissed. I was tempted because we’re lacking manpower since we’re opening a sister company. It’s not easy to find elite talents, either. Not only must they do well academically, but they also have to be very competent too. According to Madam Zhang, these talents are great. That’s why I went to such great lengths to get these resumes from Madam Zhang. I hope it’ll help you.”
“Qianqian, you’re so thoughtful and understanding. It’s my fortune to have married you.”
Wen Haowen felt like he had gotten just what he needed. The sister company had already been established for a week and the recruitment had already been going on for a month. However, they had yet to hire competent elites. Hence, he was extremely worried about it.
Of course he was glad to have some “ready-made” manpower.
He was not worried about whether or not they were really competent. After all, they would still have to be interviewed.
Ning Shuqian nudged him and said, “All you do is whisper sweet nothings to please me.”
She was filled with disdain towards Wen Haowen, for he was the one who despised her back then for losing her mind, and also the one who insisted on divorcing her. He even fell out with her.
Wen Haowen immediately pinned Ning Shuqian onto the couch.
About forty minutes later, Ning Shuqian rested her head on Wen Haowen’s chest and said, “Haowen, I’d like to talk to you about something.”
Extremely satisfied, Wen Haowen felt that Ning Shuqian was extremely precious, so much that he would do whatever he could to obtain her even if she were the moon. “What’s the matter?”
Ning Shuqian rubbed her brows and said, “It’s about Yuya. She has a flair for jewelry design and she really enjoys it too, so I’m planning to let her enroll in jewelry design in Qingyuan University. Could you help me with it? Although I rarely contact her nowadays, she’s still my biological daughter. I… ”
Although Wen Haowen disliked Ning Yuya, he knew that Ning Shuqian had been contacting Ning Yuya less frequently ever since they reconciled. Hence, he was rather glad about that. Besides, it was not a tall order and thus, he agreed straightaway. “Don’t worry, leave it to me. I’ll definitely hand you the letter of acceptance from Qingyuan University.”
Besides, Ning Yuya’s talent in jewelry design would be an advantage to the Wen Corporation.
Extremely thrilled, Ning Yuya said, “Haowen, thank you. You’re so good to me.”
Wen Haowen smiled flirtatiously and asked, “How do you plan to thank me, then?”
Ning Yuya inched closer to kiss Wen Haowen. What happened next goes without saying.
