When that post first came out, Xu Xinyi still believed in Yi Yang. She thought there was no way he was such a person. Even if he was a jerk, he wouldn’t do such a thing.
But she did not expect to find out that during their two years of marriage he had been living in the same district with Xu Weiyin in the United States.
–“In those two years when the dog man was away, it was such a wasted opportunity. I always had a thief’s heart but not a thief’s courage, I didn’t even dare to touch an actor’s little hand. Meanwhile, Yi Yang spent all that time leaving his beautiful young wife to go to the United States to meet up with his old lover.”
–“No. What kind of wife can I be considered as? That post was right. I’m just a poor woman who was used as a stand-in.”
–“I had thought Yi Yang, the dog man, had changed his ways. But unexpectedly, it was all just a disguise.”
–“I am so miserable. Just a person that he has been keeping in the dark and fooling around with all this time. Would he really give me a 90 million yuan necklace? Xu Xinyi, what kind of dream are you living in? Wasn’t it just because Xu Weiyin and Jiang Huai were together and, Yi Yang, the dog man, felt jealous so he used you as a shield?”
–You felt so smug when he bought some clothes for you during Paris Fashion Week, but did you really think he really bought them for you? He just bought them to show off to Xu Weiyin!”
–“Xu Xinyi, you really didn’t look in the mirror. Apart from being prettier than her, in better shape than her, having lighter skin than her, being taller and thinner than her, what other advantages do you have? Could you ever deserve the love of Yi Yang?”
–“You! Two! Don’t! Match!”
–“You are only here to give way for Xu Weiyin and then die alone with only Anya and a huge fortune by your side!”
Yi Yang was so angry he laughed.
“Xu Xinyi, why do you watch so many dramas every day?”
When Xu Xinyi heard this, she looked at him in disbelief, and her tears began to crash down. When she spoke her voice was trembling and choking, “You think I have seen too many dramas? Alright, I see you clearly now, Yi Yang. I give up, I admit defeat, I won’t delay you and Xu Weiyin, I’ll just leave! Regarding, grandpa, I’ll explain things to him for you. You don’t have to worry! “
The crying Xu Xinyi got up and was about to leave.
Yi Yang caught her by the wrist and said helplessly, “Give me the knife first.”
Seeing that Xu Xinyi was motionless and did not respond, Yi Yang stretched out his other hand and snatched the fruit knife from her hand.
Xu Xinyi remained motionless.
Yi Yang slowly sat her down on the sofa.
“Let me explain. Don’t talk until I’m done.”
“Listen to me carefully.”
“First of all, you said that I lived in the same district as Xu Weiyin during my business trips to the United States. I really didn’t know about that. I didn’t mean to hide it from you.”
“Second, I was involved in a scandal with Xu Weiyin four years ago, but it was nothing but baseless rumors. Since so many years had passed, I didn’t think it was necessary to bring it up again.”
Yi Yang paused and said, “Finally, don’t pick up a knife if you don’t have the resolve.”
–“If you open your mouth, you think I will just believe it?”
“You don’t believe me?”
Xu Xinyi kept silent.
“I bought that house in the United States when my father was still around. If you don’t believe it, I can show you the property deed. As for Xu Weiyin, she is just a college classmate that I haven’t been in touch with for a long time. I hope you can give me your trust in this matter.”
Seeing that Xu Xinyi still did not speak, Yi Yang continued: “I have also seen that post online. Can’t you see that it was posted by someone who has ulterior motives? That post was filled with my personal affairs, even my assistant would not have known some of those details about me from so many years ago, it’s impossible for an ordinary person to investigate my past so carefully. Since it was not an ordinary person, who do you think it was?”
“It should be Xu Weiyin. She’s trying to sow discord between us. Remember, I analyzed it for you back at the auction. Xu Weiyin is not as simple as she seems. Her mind is much deeper than you think. Didn’t you ask me why I didn’t divorce you?”
Xu Xinyi was stunned and she nodded dumbly.
“It’s because you are simple.”
Yi Yang continued speaking like nothing happened, seeming to have no idea what kind of bullshit he had just spouted. “You are beautiful, in good shape, simple, and kind. How could Xu Weiyin compare to you?”
Xu Xinyi nodded earnestly, “You’re right.”
“To sum it up, those rumors online are just rumors. But we are husband and wife, and the most important thing between a husband and wife is trust. Let’s end this matter here. No more trouble.”
“By the way, remember to make preparations tomorrow afternoon to accompany me to Mr. Jiang’s birthday party. If I guess correctly, Xu Weiyin will also be present tomorrow. And as they say, ‘the person who comes with a smile has bad intentions’. She will almost certainly try to target you. You have to be prepared. Be smart and don’t get bullied. Got it?”
Xu Xinyi looked at him blankly for a moment.
“Is there anything else you want me to explain?”
Xu Xinyi shook her head.
“Then go to bed early.”
Yi Yang got up and walked to the bathroom. But when he got to the door he seemed to remember something, he turned and looked at Xu Xinyi in silence.
Xu Xinyi looked back at him uncertainly.
“Didn’t you forget something tonight?”
Yi Yang smiled thinly. “You forgot to take advantage of the subject to try to divorce me.”
Xu Xinyi sat on the sofa for a long time without moving. After a while, she grumbled “Am I that unreasonable?”
“So, Yi Yang and Xu Weiyin really have nothing to do with each other? It was all fabricated by that woman, Xu Weiyin?” Anya was lost in thought after listening to Xu Xinyi relate the whole story.
Xu Xinyi thought about it, “That should be it, right?”
As an outsider, Anya felt like she couldn’t say much.
“By the way, I have to accompany Yi Yang to attend Jiang Cheng’s birthday party tomorrow. Xu Weiyin will definitely not miss the opportunity to make trouble,” said Xu Xinyi laughingly. “To tell you the truth, I am looking forward to Xu Weiyin’s performance tomorrow. I hope she won’t let me down.”
“Since it’s a party thrown by the Jiang family will Jiang Nian be going?”
Xinyi was slightly stupefied by the thought but she responded, “It’s his father’s birthday, so he should be there, right?”
Jiang Cheng’s birthday party was not held at a hotel, instead it was held in his own home. The Jiang family villa covered a huge area. It was beyond Xu Xinyi’s expectations when she saw it, in City A, the Jiang family villa was big enough to be called a castle.
Yi Yang quietly introduced some of Jiang family’s background to her, “Although the Jiang family has kept a low profile in recent years, they are an old family with deep roots, and their strength should not be underestimated. Just follow my lead later, and everything will be alright.”
In one corner of the living room, Jiang Huai surveyed the bustling guests with a wine glass in his hand. He said to the women next to him, “Do you know what to do?”
Xu Weiyin was standing beside him. The guests who came to the banquet all thought that she was Jiang Huai’s girlfriend so they would smile and come to express their goodwill to her.
“I hope you won’t let me down.”
A bodyguard suddenly appeared and whispered something in Jiang Huai’s ear. After Jiang Huai listened he asked, “Where is it?”
“In your room.”
Jiang Huai smiled and then said to Xu Weiyin, “I have something to do now. Don’t screw things up.”
With that, he turned around and left.
Xu Weiyin watched Jiang Huai’s departing back and her original light and sociable expression hardened.
Jiang Huai’s attitude towards her was getting worse every day. When she had first returned to China, she could feel that Jiang Huai had been attracted to her, but gradually she saw less and less signs of attraction from him. Now it was to the point that he treated her as a pawn to push into another man’s arms.
Xu Weiyin knew that Jiang Huai was getting ready to give up on her completely.
She had reflected on everything that she had done after returning to China more than once, and she felt that she had never shown even the slightest flaw. So why did Jiang Huai decide to give up on her on his own initiative?
Xu Weiyin didn’t understand.
But she knew in her heart that if she did not follow Jiang Huai’s instructions then she would not be able to gain a foothold in the entertainment industry. And then Xu Xinyi would crush her.
But also, now that Jiang Huai had made up his mind to give up on her, there was no need for her to continue to try to cling to his boat.
Xu Weiyin casually drank the last bit of red wine in her glass and then headed straight towards Yi Yang. As she approached, she heard someone asking Yi Yang about Xu Xinyi’s identity.
“Mr. Yi, who is this?”
Xu Xinyi was holding Yi Yang’s arm, and the two stood side-by-side just like a loving couple.
Yi Yang steadily introduced, “This is my wife, Xu Xinyi.”
The people suddenly realized, “Ah, it turned out to be Mrs. Yi.”
Xu Xinyi smiled. She could see a little pity and curiosity on the faces of the surrounding people. It seemed that post on the Internet had really spread widely, hadn’t it?
Just after Yi Yang’s introduction, some people said a few words of ridicule.
“Mr. Yi really kept it a tight secret all these years. There was no news at all.”
“I would never have guessed. I was planning to introduce my sister to Mr. Yi, how unfortunate.”
Xu Xinyi replied with a smile, “Fortunately, you didn’t introduce her, otherwise, your sister would have become the third party who destroyed a family.”
Yi Yang said coldly, “I’m sorry everyone, my wife has a bad temper.”
Everyone around recognized that Yi Yang was covering for Xu Xinyi with his words.
The man who spoke was embarrassed for a moment and because of Yi Yang’s face, he dared not say anything more. So he just took a sip of his wine to cover up the awkward moment. “Mrs. Yi is joking.”
“Ah? Isn’t this Miss Xu Weiyin?” There was a person with sharp eyes, and when he spotted Xu Weiyin, who was chatting with some people on the other side of the table, he shouted loudly.
Xu Weiyin looked over and the smile on her face gradually disappeared when she saw Yi Yang. She slowly walked around the long table and over to the person who had shouted, “Hello, Mr. Li, long time no see.” “
Mr. Li didn’t seem to mind the awkward atmosphere. He clinked glasses with her. “I didn’t expect to meet you here. Even though it’s only been a few days since I last saw you, you are becoming more and more beautiful every day.”
Xu Weiyin said with a humble smile, “Thank you for your compliment.”
“I seem to remember that Mr. Yi used to go to school with Miss Xu?”
Xu Weiyin looked over at Yi Yang but then quickly flinched and withdrew her eyes in a way that looked very shy. Then she gave an embarrassed smile. It seemed as if she were trying to make people misunderstand.
Xu Xinyi was not a person who would ‘pity the beauty’ so she immediately went on the offensive. “Isn’t Miss Xu Mr. Jiang’s girlfriend? Why aren’t you by Mr. Jiang’s side?”
Xu Weiyin smiled gently. “You misunderstood. Mr. Jiang and I are just friends.”
“Friends?” Xu Xinyi laughed, “Sometimes he’s your boyfriend, but sometimes he’s your friend. Is this the legendary Schrodinger’s boyfriend?”
When facing Xu Xinyi’s rude comments Xu Weiyin did not respond at all. She just stood there alone, silently.
Xu Weiyin seemed to have lost a lot of weight recently, her figure was very thin, and her palm-sized face looked pitiful.
“I heard that Miss Xu has a three-year-old child. It must have been hard to take care of the child alone all these years, hasn’t it?”
Xu Weiyin shook her head. “My child is very well-behaved. He doesn’t fool around, so raising him isn’t hard.”
“Miss Xu, with all due respect, have you ever thought about finding the father of your child after all these years?”
Xu Weiyin acted stunned and her eyes slowly drifted over to Yi Yang.
Xu Xinyi said coldly, “I advised you to find the father of your child. What do you mean by looking over at my husband? What? Do you want to try to cling to my husband?”
