Chapter 142: After All, They Both Have a Close Relationship (1)
Mo Bei stood in the hallway outside the bathroom. After waiting a few minutes, he saw Sheng Wenyang coming out of the bathroom with teary eyes.
He shoved his hands in his pockets and leaned against the wall, saying, “You’ve seen it yourself today. When would Chen Sinan ever do something like that for a woman?”
Sheng Wenyang remained silent, but stared at the plant pot in the hallway.
“Sheng Wenyang, wake up. You can’t win Xin Siyue.”
“Why?! Give me a reason.” She calmly retorted.
Mo Bei thought it was better for her to vent her feelings hysterically rather than suppressing it.
“Because Chen Sinan doesn’t love you.” Mo Bei said, “As long as a man was interested or placed a woman in his heart, he wouldn’t allow a woman to live by herself all these years and not ask anything about it. When did he ever place your work, company, or life in his heart? Or at least even asked about it once? Wenyang, you saw how he cherished and adored that woman. It’s impossible between the two of you!”
Sheng Wenyang stubbornly refused to look at him but her eyes were still red. Mo Bei stared at her shaking shoulders, unable to force himself to speak harshly anymore.
When Sheng Wenyang returned to the private room, she drank two glasses of red wine in a row before suddenly standing up. She raised her wine glass and said to Chen Sinan, “President Chen, I toast you.”
Everyone looked at Chen Sinan, eager for gossip.
Chen Sinan lazily looked at her.
Xin Siyue’s gaze landed on Sheng Wenyang. She downed the glass of wine in one gulp, not waiting for Chen Sinan’s response at all.
Mo Bei sat by the side and leaned back. But his gaze wasn’t on Sheng Wenyang either. He watched with his arms folded.
Xin Siyue guessed that the two had an unpleasant conversation outside which was why Mo Bei was acting like this.
Chen Sinan didn’t move but this didn’t stop Sheng Wenyang from continuing, “President Chen, thank you for helping me so much while I was in college. You helped me feel motivated.” She downed another glass of wine.
“I am thankful for you, President Chen. While I was abroad all these years, it was because of you that I persisted.” She slightly choked with emotions and continued, “I kept on going for such a long time just for you. But I can’t seem to find a goal to keep me striving.” She paused momentarily and said in a slightly hoarse voice, “Chen Sinan, I just want to ask you a question. What did all the beautiful memories that we had together mean to you? I clearly remember each time we were together. Our hugs. Our kisses. Where did you toss these memories to?! You clearly…you clearly like me…but why…”
Under everyone’s bright and gossip-filled gazes, Chen Sinan stood up. He interrupted her endless rant by saying, “You’re drunk.”
Sheng Wenyang chuckled. “I’d rather that I was really drunk but I’m clearly sober. Chen Sinan, do you understand how it feels to be heartbroken? No. You will never understand.”
Xin Siyue raised her eyebrows and looked at the two.
Chen Sinan looked at her and held her hands, helping her up. He took her bag and coat from behind her and hung it on his elbow. He replied to Sheng Wenyang, “You are right that I don’t know, because my life is complete.”
He linked hands with Xin Siyue and ignored Sheng Wenyang who had a tear-stained face of a beauty. He said to Zhuang Zhu. “She needs to work tomorrow morning so I’m going to take her home now. You can put the bill on my tab.” After that, they silently left.
Once the car was started, Xin Siyue purposefully sighed after she slowly put her seatbelt on.
This noise was particularly loud in a silent car.
Chen Sinan looked to the side.
Xin Siyue seriously looked at him too.
Chen Sinan was unable to endure her sparkling gaze so he shifted his gaze. He stared ahead and said, “If you have something to say, just say it.”
Xin Siyue said pitifully, “It’s sad that we left so early. We didn’t even win Zhuang Zhu’s money back.” Originally, Zhuang Zhu had met with Chen Sinan so that they could play cards.
“It’s the same if we win the next time.”
“I was looking forward to you playing cards.” She knew that Chen Sinan had great card skills.
“You’ll have a chance in the future.” Chen Sinan said this and changed the topic, “How about I drive you over to my house and you play a few rounds with my mother and grandfather?”
Wouldn’t he be indirectly bringing her to see his parents?
Xin Siyue hurriedly rejected, “No, no, no. I’m not good at playing cards. I’ll look bad if I keep losing.”
“You have me. What are you scared of?”
“If you lose, I’ll just help you win double the money back. If you lose, it’s on me. If I win, it’s on you.”
Xin Siyue pondered over this and believed that she wouldn’t be losing anything.
When Chen Sinan saw that she didn’t respond, he continued to ask, “How does this sound? Want to come over?”
“Of course not! I didn’t prepare anything. I’m not going. I want to go back home.”
Chen Sinan glanced at her and didn’t persist. He drove her back to her house.
Once they arrived at the Xin Residence, Chen Sinan said, “I’ll come over to pick you up early morning tomorrow.”
“You don’t need to go through all this trouble. My driver can drive me over.”
“So it’s settled.” Chen Sinan didn’t care what she had previously said.
Xin Siyue glared at him and said, “Hey, President Chen, can you take my words seriously?”
“Yes, I always remember your words.” Before she could ramble on, he continued, “We won’t be able to see each other for another few days. Let me hug you for a while.”
