Chapter 4: Doubts
Xin Siyue painstakingly tried to recall, ‘What city did the female and male protagonists live in again? Sheng– what?’ She remembered how the author liked the female protagonist so much that the first word for the city’s name was also the same as the protagonist’s last name…
Xin Siyue asked in a hurry: “Is this Shengjin City?”
Xin Qiancheng carefully observed her, but after a while, her eyes were still inquisitive and clear. Seems like this wasn’t a prank, so he could only nod.
Xin Siyue suddenly felt helpless out of fear. She closed her eyes in defeat. Yes, yes! She actually transmigrated over into a novel as the villainess who was headed straight for a tragic ending!
Xin Siyue wondered where the plot was at during this timeline.
She asked her brother: “How old am I now?”
Xin Qiancheng raised a brow and asked seriously this time: “You really don’t remember?”
Xin Siyue nodded, but immediately shook her head once again.
Her brother asked impatiently: “What do you mean by nodding and shaking your head?”
“I only recall my name and some other vague details. For example, I’m the eldest daughter of the Xin family. I know this is Shengjin City, and also…” Xin Siyue wanted to share a few other information regarding the villainess in the book, but she wasn’t sure of her present circumstances and could only do her best to avoid arousing suspicion. So she changed the topic and said, “I only remember these details, but I can’t recall the rest.”
Xin Qiangcheng’s brows knitted deeply as he considered her words. After pondering about it for a while, he said, “Go to bed first. I’ll call the doctor to see you.”
“Okay, thanks brother.”
Xin Qiancheng, who was about to turn and leave, suddenly stopped on his tracks and stared back at her doubtfully for two seconds. Finally, he walked out of the room with a disconcerted look.
‘Weird, how can falling down the stairs make her act so strange? Since when did my sister treat others so politely? Did her brain really break down this time? She already wasn’t very smart in the beginning–if we don’t prevent it from degrading any further, who knows what disaster will come!’
At this thought, Xin Qiancheng’s pace quickened.
Upon seeing the man slip away so quickly, Xin Siyue laid back in bed and sighed in her heart. The former Xin Siyue of the novel had such a temper that not even her brother was willing to be close to her.
Although there weren’t many descriptions of Xin Qiancheng in the book, it’s not difficult to see that he was a smart and capable person. He was able to run most of the Xin family’s businesses at such a young age, but he was later implicated due to the villainess’ deeds.
She recalled a scene in the novel, right after the villainess had succeeded in plotting Sheng Wenyang’s miscarriage. Outside the operating room, Chen Sinan, who had always maintained a calm and composed demeanor, now wrapped his fingers around the villainess’ neck with one had and viciously warned, “If something happens to her, I’ll definitely bury your corpse with her!”
She also recalled the author’s description: “For the first time, Xin Siyue felt a deep fear from the murderous aura that emanated from Chen Sinan’s body. It was as if his cold hands could tighten its grasp mercilessly around her throat at any moment, easily taking away her life. She wanted to struggle against him, but did not have even half the strength to resist…”
Finally, Xin Qiancheng rushed into the hall in a hurry, giving his sister a chance to live.
Xin Qiancheng walked behind Chen Sinan and ordered in a chilling voice: “Chen Sinan, you’d better let her go this instant!”
Chen Sinan simply replied: “And if I say no?”
“Then I won’t let you rest, even if I have to use all of our Xin family resources!”
Chen Sinan sneered and replied without shame: “I’d like to see who it is between us who will have no time of peace!” After that, he pushed the villainess away, causing Xin Siyue to hit the wall behind her. Her eyes burst into tears as she heard Chen Sinan’s parting words with a cold warning: “Xin Siyue, just wait, I’ll have you pay off your debts!”
