Chapter 190: Why did you have to go and provoke so many beauties? (1)
“By the way, what did you mean by what you said to that man earlier?”
Unlike the stifled feeling that was wrapped around Chen Sinan’s heart, Xin Siyue appeared to be unaffected by neither the man nor the disconcerting crash that had just occurred.
However, upon noticing Chen Sinan’s silence and the lack of expression on his face, Xin Siyue asked, “Are you angry?”
Chen Sinan looked at her. “Are you not?”
“I was, but not anymore. After you came and I watched him get beaten up, I realized that a person like him is not worth getting angry over,” she confessed.
His expression remained tense, so she added, “To me, he is a nobody. In my world, he counts for even less than a random passerby. Who knows if I’ll ever see him again? And even if I do, I wouldn’t acknowledge him. Therefore, an irrelevant person like him is not worth getting angry over.”
Suddenly, Chen Sinan cracked a smile. “I didn’t know my wife was such a magnanimous person.”
For a moment, she pondered over his words. “It’s not about how magnanimous I am. I just don’t think we should let ourselves be affected by someone so insignificant. Think about it. He made you feel unhappy just now, which in turn made
me worry. It’s not worth it. Who is more important to you, him or me?”
After listening to what she said, Chen Sinan suddenly understood. While he was feeling angry at himself for not protecting her well, she was also taking great pains to placate his storming emotions. It was as though the one who had gotten implicated was not her, but someone else.
It seemed like she would be calm even if the sky were falling, and as the thought crossed his mind, he was reminded of the past.
Turning to her, he asked, “When I first met you, I was very curious. The Xin Siyue then didn’t seem to care about anything. Nothing could faze you. But were you really as indifferent as you seemed?”
Xin Siyue, on the other hand, couldn’t remember a time when she was like that. “Was I?” she asked, then before he could respond, “I guess I was just too good at pretending! I was actually afraid of many things back then, but most of all, I was afraid of death. Eventually, I realized that aside from death, everything else was insignificant and unworthy of my attention.”
Probably because her obsession was too deep, so nothing else mattered.
“Then was I also insignificant and unworthy of your attention?” Chen Sinan asked, narrowing his eyes slightly.
The clever Xin Siyue responded immediately as she thought, This is a trap! If I answer wrong, he’ll definitely make me suffer tonight!
So she said with a smile, “Haha, the past is the past. Let’s not bring it up anymore.” And with that, she quickly changed the subject.
“About being unable to find a partner company or something…” She was keen. “The Lai family offended you.”
“More or less.”
“And what is ‘more or less’ supposed to mean?”
The fact that Miss Lai had successfully tricked him into entering her house was a matter of absolute humiliation. She had even managed to force a hug on him. He mustn’t let his wife find out!
Looking away, he replied lazily, “The past is the past. Let’s not bring it up anymore!”
She stared at him. “Something is fishy.”
He pretended he didn’t hear her.
When the two of them got home, Xin Siyue remained suspicious of his evasive behavior. As she cooked dinner in the kitchen, she tried to recall the plot of the original story. Was there anyone who had the surname of “Lai”?
After thinking about it for a while, she finally remembered. There was indeed a person like that in the original story: the young miss of the Lai family, Shi Shi’s cousin, and also… a former marriage prospect of Chen Sinan.
