Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heiress - Chapter 1665
Chapter 1665: You Don’t Deserve to Live in This World
The scandalous news of Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian’s domestic violence had spread like wildfire. The Wen Family was utterly disgraced and the Wen Corporation was also affected. Its share price showed signs of decline.
Under such circumstances, the fact that the head of the Wen Family and the Chairman of Wen Corporation was hospitalized over a long-term illness and currently still in a coma—this news could not be made public or it would be a huge blow to the Wen Corporation.
Wen Haowen heaved a sigh of relief at the fact that Old Mr. Wen’s situation was temporarily still under control.
However, Ning Shuqian’s lawsuit against him was causing him an immense headache. Although the press had yet to report on it, the consequences would be dire if he didn’t quickly resolve this.
In the end, Wen Haowen called the lawyer and relaxed his demands on the divorce. He instructed the lawyer to placate Ning Shuqian as much as possible and quickly end that marriage.
The lawyer felt rather exasperated after getting that call. He couldn’t help chuckling bitterly.
He had taken on many divorce cases before, but he had never met such a troublesome couple.
“Madam Wen, I am the lawyer representing Mr. Wen Haowen in this divorce. Mr. Wen has handed me full authority to deal with all matters concerning the divorce. Feel free to let me know of any request you have. We can sit down and have a good discussion. Mr. Wen hopes to settle this quickly and amicably.”
The lawyer looked at Ning Shuqian, who was lying in bed and staring at him with dark eyes that appeared nearly blank, apart from the faint traces of malevolence.
Shivers traveled down his spine. He felt as if a venomous snake was staring at him, ready to strike at any time and give him a vicious bite.
He suppressed his unease and tried to make himself appear calm.
“Get lost…” Ning Shuqian’s dark pupils quivered. She glared viciously at the lawyer as she spoke in a cold and threatening voice. She was unwilling to see anyone related to Wen Haowen.
“Madam Wen, Mr. Wen has already relaxed his demands regarding the division of financial assets after the divorce. I think we can have a good discussion regarding that.”
The lawyer had handled many divorce cases and seen his fair share of difficult couples. He was highly experienced and wouldn’t just back off because of her threat. He tried his best to speak in a soothing tone.
“I asked you to get lost. Didn’t you hear me?”
Ning Shuqian’s temper was as unpredictable as the weather. She suddenly shrieked and flung a pillow vehemently at the lawyer.
She was extremely agitated.
Most recently, she often felt a complete loss of control over her emotions. She frequently flew into a temper which had her feeling very frantic.
“Madam Wen, please calm down. Your husband is firm in his decision to divorce you. Denial is not the solution. Why don’t you tell me if you have any requests? I can help you transmit them to Mr. Wen.”
The lawyer managed to dodge her pillow, and he sounded somewhat pathetic now.
This was not the first time he had interacted with Ning Shuqian. Previously, when Ning Shuqian’s fake pregnancy was exposed, Wen Haowen had also sought him out to draw up the divorce proposal. He had given him complete authority over the divorce proceedings.
Hence, he more or less understood her greedy nature.
Ning Shuqian shrieked again. “Alright, go back and tell Wen Haowen that if he wishes to divorce me and marry that slut, Yang Ziyu, and form a happy family with that bastard child of his—tell him that he can dream on. I will never let him get his way.”
Ning Shuqian’s hatred for Wen Haowen had seeped right into her very core.
Every night, she would dream about her dead child all covered in blood and wailing after her. All she wanted to do was to kill that bastard Wen Haowen and have him pay for the murder.
Every time she thought of the child in the belly of that slut, Yang Ziyu, she felt a desperate urge to destroy their family. She wanted to hack them all to pieces to avenge her child’s death.
She was full of hatred!
The lawyer raised his brows slightly. “Madam Wen, please don’t be impulsive. Mr. Wen’s divorce terms are very advantageous to you. Not only is he not taking back all the money, shareholdings, properties and jewelry you currently hold, but he will also give you a villa on top of that. Let me be frank with you, this is already Mr. Wen’s biggest compromise. If you insist on opposing the divorce—it will just end up being an ugly fight and both parties will suffer.”
To appease Ning Shuqian and obtain a smooth divorce, Wen Haowen had indeed put in some efforts. Despite being made a cuckold, he managed to hold back his rage. If Ning Shuqian didn’t know what was good for her, it might trigger an angry reaction from him.
“I don’t care if we end up in an ugly fight. In my current state, what else do I have to be afraid of? Wen Haowen must be dreaming if he thinks he can get rid of me just like that. Not only will I not agree to the divorce, but I am also going to sue him until his reputation is totally destroyed and he is completely ruined.”
Ning Shuqian emitted a crazed howl.
Wasn’t Wen Haowen most concerned about his reputation?
She wanted him to lose the thing he treasured the most, and have him suffer an agony worse than death.
“Madam Wen, regarding your lawsuit against Mr. Wen, he expressed that if you are willing to withdraw it…”
“Hahahaha… withdraw the lawsuit? That’s impossible. Go back and ask Wen Haowen if he has received the subpoena? How does it feel to be sued?”
Wen Haowen was vicious!
So she would be more vicious than him!
Ning Shuqian wanted him to know that all who did wrong against her would meet with terrible fates.
The lawyer looked extremely grim and his tone turned icy. “Madam Wen, you were once husband and wife, after all. Why must you be so heartless and make things so difficult? If you agree to the divorce now and withdraw the lawsuit, you can emerge from this whole thing completely unscathed. But if you insist on being stubborn, both of you will suffer. Anyway, Mr. Wen’s reputation might be blackened, but he is still a member of the Wen Family and will still enjoy a luxurious lifestyle. After all the dust has settled, things will more or less go back to normal for him. But you are in a different situation. What will happen to you after you lose your status and all your financial assets?”
In his opinion, Ning Shuqian was now behaving with extreme stupidity. She was just stubbornly struggling in vain.
“He had a mistress and conceived a child with her. He physically abused me and killed my child. Was he not heartless then? You don’t need to speak any further. I will not agree to the divorce and will not withdraw the lawsuit.”
No one in this world was more cruel and heartless than Wen Haowen.
He was merciless toward his ex-wife Mo Yunyao.
He was ruthless toward Ning Shuqian.
He killed his own flesh and blood.
He was just a callous beast and didn’t deserve to live in this world.
