Chapter 168: We Will Grow Old Together (1)
After Chen Sinan emphasized for the third time that he would not be sleeping in the guest room, Xin Siyue no longer wanted to deal with him.
He did not wait for her to respond either. Either way, no response means a yes by default.
Chen Sinan started up her car, and only then did Xin Siyue remind him, “What about your car?!”
“I can just wait for Assistant Wang to come deal with it.”
Huh, fine. Whatever makes you happy.
Xin Siyue adjusted herself on her seat and looked out the window, letting her mind wander. With Mo Bei’s attitude today, it was unlikely for him to agree to be on the show. It’s likely that she will have to re-plan the show again tonight.
Xin Siyue was absorbed in her thoughts, having no idea at all that Chen Sinan who was driving inattentively had been glancing over to her several times without leaving any trace.
By the time she finally caught him looking at her, she asked craftily, “What’re you looking at me like that for?” What’s with this situation? Is he going to talk or not?
Chen Sinan clutched the steering wheel leisurely and said, “The reason why I met up with Sheng Wenyang was because she went to see Shi Shi several days ago.”
When Xin Siyue heard this, a frown emerged on her brow.
Chen Sinan caught those subtle movements and smiled, asking, “Is there something you want to say to me?”
Xin Siyue looked at him seriously and pondered deeply on it.
Chen Sinan raised the corners of his mouth silently. “There’s something I’ve actually always wanted to ask you.”
Xin Siyue seemed to be able to guess what he wanted to ask, so she brought it up first. “About me?”
“Actually, I’ve always been thinking about whether I should ask you this, because I can’t be sure. How would you react if I asked you? That’s why I never asked after so long.”
Chen Sinan went on and said, “After Shi Shi was taken into custody, I had Assistant Want collect all the videos on the scene. Later, I found many of what Shi Shi had to say quite shocking. I’m not going to hide it from you, but I know everything about what she said to you when you went to see her as well.”
Xin Siyue’s gaze changed. So, after her meeting with Shi Shi last time, that captain sent him a copy of the recording as well?
“Why? Do you not trust me or what?”
Chen Sinan explained, “Many of Shi Shi’s actions are beyond our logic, but every time she sees you, she seems to become very agitated. Moreover, she only targets you. I’m just worried about you.”
Xin Siyue shook her head. She said, “So you met Sheng Wenyang today because she found out from Shi Shi that I’m not the original Xin Siyue?”
“It’s true, I’m not her. You should be clear about that as well. However, the reason why I didn’t want to tell you that is because I think that statement is too ridiculous. I live in another world, so all the people I know in this world are from the contents of a book I’ve read before transmigrating here. I accidentally fell down the stairs while going down and hit my head. By the time I woke up, I was already in this world. Chen Sinan, I know about all of you inside this world, and I also know how the story of this world is going to develop. That was why I tried to escape at the very beginning.”
When I tried to stay far away from you, I was only worried that I would destroy myself once I get close.
Chen Sinan’s gaze moved slightly, motioning for her to continue.
“I don’t know from when Shi Shi became the author. In this world, I am not the only person possessing Xin Siyue’s body. She is the same. She wrote this book, but I don’t know why she turned into that. After thinking about it, the only possibility is because of me being in this world. She knows me and even hates me to no end. Otherwise, why would the supporting female lead have the same name as me? And she even ended up in a tragedy.”
Even though Chen Sinan could guess a few things from the dialogue between them, hearing her admit it herself still felt a little strange.
“So, what is the ending in the book?”
Xin Siyue smiled. “You and Sheng Wenyang got together, and because of an accidental miscarriage of your first child with Xin Siyue, you got angry and made the Xin family perish. Meanwhile, because Xin Siyue ended up getting married to that scumbag, she finally died on the day she was caught with another man.”
After some thought, Chen Sinan understood. “So, that Lin Hui is the man she ended up marrying at the ending of the book?”
Xin Siyue nodded.
Chen Sinan no longer had anything to say. He just looked forward.
If they had to talk about this, then it’s better to make everything clear all at once. Xin Siyue went on, “The timeline in the book stops two years after your marriage. You had a child with Sheng Wenyang.”
Chen Sinan was silent.
She continued, “I don’t know how much of what Shi Shi said is real, and how much of it is fake. If this world really is as she says, stopping two years after you get married, does that mean we only have two years of happiness together?”
“That won’t happen.” Chen Sinan was certain. “This world is real.”
