Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya sat on the sofa inside the visitors’ room and asked An Feiya to brew her a pot of Biluochun tea.
The tea was soon ready.
An Feiya gracefully placed the tea before Wen Xinya. Although she didn’t like this spoiled and rude girl at all, she remained polite. “Miss Wen, please enjoy it. Call me if you need anything.”
Wen Xinya replied mildly, “You can leave!”
An Feiya’s perfectly composed expression cracked slightly at Wen Xinya’s imperious tone. Nevertheless, she suppressed her annoyance and turned to leave the visitors’ lounge.
An Feiya’s beautiful features scrunched up in disdain the moment the door to the visitors’ room closed. “Hmph, she really thinks she is all that!”
Inside the room, Wen Xinya took a sip of the tea and raised her brows slightly. The tea was made from high-grade Biluochun tea leaves and An Feiya’s tea-brewing skills were superb and obviously catered to Si Yiyan’s preferences.
Wen Xinya loved Biluochun, so Si Yiyan had obtained quite a large quantity of top-grade Biluochun tea leaves. After all these years, she had already gotten used to this premium taste and generally found other teas to be not as palatable.
A woman was coveting her man right in front of her eyes. Anyone in her position would not be able to endure such an insult.
This An Feiya gave off such a confident vibe as if she had every right to covet Wen Xinya’s man.
What reason could this woman have to possess such a conviction?
Could it be Si Yiyan behaved in some manner which led to her misunderstanding? Or did Si Yiyan really give her some ambiguous hint on purpose?
Wild thoughts raced through her mind continuously.
Could it be she had been so busy with work that she had neglected Si Yiyan, such that he started showing interest in other women?
At this point, she desperately felt like charging into Si Yiyan’s office to ask him just who this woman was!
But her sense of rationality prevented her from doing so.
It was just a woman. If she overreacted and showed a lack of trust in Si Yiyan, it would hurt their relationship.
Small fits of jealousy enhanced a relationship, but being an uncontrollable green-eyed monster would end up hurting their love!
She should listen to Si Yiyan’s explanation before arriving at a conclusion.
She shouldn’t end up damaging their trust over a potentially small matter.
Moreover, Si Yiyan was having an important meeting now. If she just barged in like that, she would make him look like a fool in front of others.
More importantly, if she tried to force her way in, that woman would be sure to try and stop her right before everyone’s eyes. There was no way she would do something so embarrassing.
Wen Xinya suppressed her churning emotions. She was Si Yiyan’s fiancé and there was no reason she should stoop so low as to start wrangling with some unknown woman.
Who cared if this woman coveted her own man? She would not make any irrational action before she clarified the situation.
Wen Xinya flipped through a magazine but was too distracted to take in a single word. Nevertheless, her hands continued turning the pages in an absentminded manner.
10 minutes… half an hour!
Impatience crept over Wen Xinya’s face. She picked up her cell phone and dialed Si Yiyan’s number. However, no one picked up the phone. He was obviously still in the meeting.
The designated cell phones she shared with Si Yiyan never left their sides. Apart from the time he was non-contactable while he was in the Middle East, as long as his cell phone was turned on, he would definitely pick up her call.
This was the first time that no one had picked up the phone.
She surmised that this must be an extremely important meeting.
She knew that as a reasonable fiancé, she should not be upset over the fact that Si Siyan had momentarily neglected her just because he was busy at work. However, she just couldn’t suppress her rising unhappiness.
An hour passed.
Wen Xinya’s patience ran out and she called Gu Yuehan. She nearly flung her cell phone to the floor in frustration the moment she heard the dial tone indicating that his phone was turned off. The cell phones of Xu Xianghu, Yueze and the rest were all also turned off.
Wen Xinya eventually managed to calm herself down.
Why in the world was she behaving like this?
She had become so anxious and suspicious over a mere female secretary. She was behaving irrationally and was totally overreacting.
Si Yiyan was a mature and exceptional man, who possessed power, wealth and status. It should not be any surprise that many women would covet such a guy. As his fiancé, she should feel proud and not behave like she was now—showing distrust and casting doubt over their decade-long relationship.
This was unfair toward Si Yiyan.
It was her cross to bear.
After thinking it through, Wen Xinya’s emotions gradually calmed.
Wen Xinya glanced at her wristwatch. She had been waiting for an hour and a half. It was clear that this meeting would not be over that soon, so she decided not to bother Si Yiyan for the moment. The matter regarding the Korean-Chinese Alliance was important, but there would be time later to inform him.
Wen Xinya took up her purse and left the visitors’ room, only to bump into Gu Yuehan at the door.
Gu Yuehan looked somewhat startled. “Sis-in-law, why have you come?”
Wen Xinya was momentarily taken aback. “Aren’t you having a meeting?”
Gu Yuehan didn’t look like he had just come from a meeting.
Gu Yuehan glanced at the visitors’ room behind her. A cold glint flashed across his eyes. “There was a very important meeting this afternoon, but it already ended half an hour ago.”
At this point, Gu Yuehan more or less understood what had happened.
Someone had used the meeting as an excuse to prevent sis-in-law from seeing the Ninth Young Master and then failed to notify sis-in-law when the meeting ended.
Who in the world would be so daring?
Wen Xinya couldn’t help smiling bitterly. The meeting had ended half an hour ago—this meant that An Feiya had obviously played her for a fool and made her wait for over half an hour for no reason.
As cool and pokerfaced as he was, Gu Yuehan couldn’t help giving a nervous gulp when he noticed her rather bizarre expression. He added hastily, “Sis-in-law, Ninth Young Master is now in his office. You can go in to find him.”
Gu Yuehan was actually feeling quite sorry for that fellow who had crossed Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya was so angry that her insides ached.
Damn reasonableness. Damn virtuousness and magnanimity. Damn etiquette and pride. She should have just thrown a hissy fit and barged into his office, to let that woman see clearly that the man she so coveted belonged to Wen Xinya alone.
Gu Yuehan shuddered at her wrath.
Wen Xinya’s gaze was sharp as she said coldly, “Tell him I will wait for him to explain himself.”
With that, she turned on her 10cm heels and sashayed off.
