Chapter 536: Ning Shuqian Is an Ant Beneath Your Feet
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Wen Xinya wanted to use Du Ruo to test if Ning Shuqian was actually pregnant or not. However, she did not have sufficient evidence to prove that Ning Shuqian was merely faking her pregnancy in order to deal with her.
Xia Ruya and Ning Shuqian must have already guessed my intentions, Wen Xinya thought to herself. Hence, she had secretly sent Tianchao Private Investigation Agency an email and instructed them to investigate Ning Shuqian’s main physician Lin Mengxue, so as to catch Ning Shuqian and Xia Ruya off guard.
After washing some fruit for her, Si Yiyan placed it in front of her and asked, “How has the investigation been?”
He had completely expected that Ning Shuqian was not pregnant.
Staring at the report of the investigation results given by Tianchao Private Investigation Agency, Wen Xinya shook her head and answered, “They didn’t manage to find anything. They found out that Lin Mengxue comes from a decent family and doesn’t have any sordid relatives. She’s also very outstanding and outshone herself at a hospital that she worked at after graduating from University. Two years ago, the director of the hospital referred her to the central hospital where she’s working at now. She managed to gain recognition from the hospital too.”
Si Yiyan grabbed a fruit knife and peeled a pear for her while listening to her words.
Wen Xinya continued, “I’ve also got the agency to find out if Ning Shuqian knew Lin Mengxue prior to her pregnancy. However, the results show that Ning Shuqian only got to know Lin Mengxue during her previous miscarriage.” Feeling extremely annoyed, Wen Xinya frowned and said, “Ning Shuqian seems to trust Lin Mengxue a lot, and ever since her pregnancy was verified, she had been solely consulting Lin Mengxue.”
Wen Xinya could not help but feel extremely dejected. Although she knew that Ning Shuqian was faking her pregnancy, she could not find any clues at all.
Si Yiyan handed the peeled pear to Wen Xinya and said, “Have a pear! Pears help to dispel the heat during springtime and set you in a happy mood.”
Wen Xinya grabbed the pear and took a huge bite out of it, the sweet juices calming her frustration. “Ning Shuqian may be scheming and full of devious ideas, but once you find the clues, you’ll be able to find out everything else. Xia Ruya must have joined in on this scheme.” She then chewed on the pear and continued, “Xia Ruya is the only person who can come up with such a seamless plan and leave no clues behind.”
Seeing how exasperated she was, Si Yiyan could not help but comfort her. “You’ve already verified that Ning Shuqian’s pregnancy is fake and she’s just a clown to you now. Why do you have to get so worked up? It’s not worth damaging your body because of your anger.”
In his eyes, Wen Xinya did not have to worry about Ning Shuqian at all.
Wen Xinya rubbed her forehead and said, “Ning Shuqian has been stirring so much trouble in the Wen Family by making use of her pregnancy. It’s truly annoying and frustrating.”
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “Xia Ruya and Ning Shuqian should be the ones getting a headache now. Since they know that you’ve already guessed that her pregnancy is fake, they’re probably trying to think of a backup plan. Besides, your grandfather has already begun suspecting Ning Shuqian. I don’t think she’d have the guts to act brazenly for now, let alone stir any more trouble.”
Wen Xinya pouted and said, “I know that, of course. That’s why I’m so eager about finding evidence of Ning Shuqian’s fake pregnancy, so as to ward against her. Otherwise, I won’t be able to defend myself when she frames me.”
Ning Shuqian was full of tricks and Xia Ruya was extremely scheming, so much that she could not guard against them at all.
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “Your considerations are apt as well. However, Ning Shuqian is not in control of the situation. Even if she tries to plot against you, she can only act once your Grandpa stops suspecting her. So, you don’t have to worry about that for now.”
Staring at the bewildering look in his eyes, Wen Xinya wondered, What does Si Yiyan mean? Does he want me to ignore Ning Shuqian for now?
A cold expression formed on Si Yiyan’s face and he said, “Xinya, you must understand that you’ve already verified that Ning Shuqian is faking her pregnancy and she doesn’t pose a threat to you now. In that case, what’s the point of finding evidence now?”
Wen Xinya’s eyes lit up and she held Si Yiyan’s hand. “What do you mean?”
Si Yiyan smirked and said, “You’re not the police, you can’t solve a case without evidence and you must be clear about your current predicament. Finding evidence is too passive. Once you’re passive, you’ll be easily manipulated.”
Si Yiyan’s words made Wen Xinya feel much more clear-headed and she asked, “How can I be proactive then?”
Si Yiyan smiled and said coldly, “Xinya, you don’t need to care if Ning Shuqian is really pregnant or not…” A mysterious expression formed on his face and he continued, “What’s most important now is your coming-of-age ceremony!”
Wen Xinya had fully understood what Si Yiyan meant. She could not help but be amused by how troubled she was earlier on.
Si Yiyan is extremely scheming and intelligent. No wonder he could become the leader of Lucifer at such a young age and take over the Xiasi Group. I’m far inferior to him.
Si Yiyan knew that she had understood what he meant. He smiled and said, “Even if she’s really pregnant, she might not be able to deal with you. You hold the power to be proactive now and Ning Shuqian is just like an ant beneath your feet. You can crush her easily.”
“How could I let her be?” Wen Xinya’s eyes widened and she pursed her lips indignantly. She continued, “I don’t want to do that. It’s never like me to sit back and do nothing.”
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “Actually, it’s not my style either, but I can’t let her continue being smug. We must make her wary and prevent her from using her child to stir trouble.”
Wen Xinya’s eyes lit up and she said teasingly, “Si Yiyan is the only one who knows me well.”
Si Yiyan said with a grin, “Just you wait and see!”
