Chapter 274: Villainous Bestie (34)
“Ring ring ring”
In the quiet late night, the urgent sound of the phone ringing suddenly broke the silence.
The ringing of his phone interrupted An Yichen’s thoughts. Seeing the caller ID, he was slightly taken aback and immediately answered, “Wu Yan, it’s so late, why aren’t you asleep yet?”
The person calling An Yichen at this hour was Xia Beibei.
“It’s late for you too. Aren’t you asleep either? Where are you?” The female voice on the phone sounded somewhat cold.
“I, I’m at home, about to go to bed.”
An Yichen hesitated for a moment, giving a vague reply, knowing that Wu Yan had some misunderstandings about Bai Tingting, so he didn’t tell her the truth.
Upon hearing An Yichen’s response, Xia Beibei laughed over the phone. “An Yichen, you’re lying to me. You’re not at home at all, you’re at the hospital.”
Then the call was abruptly disconnected, and An Yichen stood in the hospital yard, unexpectedly looking at the girl who had suddenly appeared before him.
“Wu Yan, how did you come here?”
“Bai Tingting is my close friend. She’s in trouble. Can’t I come to see her? Why are you so nervous?”
Xia Beibei gave An Yichen a faint smile, her tone unexpectedly icy.
“Wu Yan, don’t overthink it, I… I didn’t…”
“I’m not overthinking.”
Xia Beibei cut off An Yichen’s words. “Bai Tingting is your lifesaver, the benefactor of your family. It’s natural for you to visit her! What am I overthinking? Do you think I’ll randomly speculate that you’re falling for someone else? Ha, it’s Bai Tingting we’re talking about, short and ugly. What could you possibly like about her!”
Hearing Xia Beibei’s unfiltered words, An Yichen’s gaze suddenly turned cold. “Wu Yan, I know you misunderstood her, but don’t insult her like this. She…”
“Am I insulting her?”
Upon hearing An Yichen’s words, Xia Beibei burst into a scornful laugh. “Haha, haha! That’s exactly what everyone from DiFeng No 9 school used to say. An Yichen, weren’t you one of them too? You were so noble! But why didn’t I hear you defending her back then? How come your relationship seems different now, huh?”
“Wu Yan, you’ve been overthinking a lot lately. I’ll take you back.”
An Yichen sighed and stepped forward, wanting to grab Xia Beibei’s arm, but she quickly dodged. “Where are you taking me? Are you taking me to die?”
As she spoke, she suddenly pulled a stack of documents from her embrace and threw them at An Yichen. “An Yichen, you only know that Bai Tingting saved you, but do you know that I almost got run over by a car when you had your accident? And the driver who hit me was hired by your mother?!”
Upon hearing Xia Beibei’s words, An Yichen was frozen in place.
He had always known that his mother didn’t particularly like Wu Yan, and he had long known the true background of Wu Yan, but he didn’t care. He had always thought that background didn’t matter, as long as two people loved each other, it was enough.
“Wu Yan, I’m sorry, I didn’t know.”
An Yichen lifted his hand again to grab Xia Beibei’s hand, but she dodged again.
“An Yichen, do you no longer love me?”
“You said you would get engaged to me!”
“You said you wouldn’t abandon me again, that you wouldn’t let me be in danger, but…”
“Wu Yan, I’m sorry! I’m sorry!”
An Yichen looked at the person before him with a pained expression. “Something like this will not happen again, definitely not.”
“Can I trust you?”
Xia Beibei looked at An Yichen with doubt. “Promise me, promise me you won’t revisit Bai Tingting, promise me you won’t have any more contact with her, and I’ll believe you.”
At this moment, Xia Beibei seemed to be standing on the edge of a cliff, urgently needing someone to pull her back.
As long as An Yichen agreed to this request, she would be pulled back to safety.
It would be a bottomless abyss.
Sometimes, people fixate on things, and they can drive themselves to a dead end.
“Wu Yan, I promise you, I will do it. But these things have nothing to do with Bai Tingting. Why do you have to make things difficult? Why do you have to be so unreasonable?”
Naturally, An Yichen would not agree to Xia Beibei’s excessive demand.
Bai Tingting was his lifesaver, how could he disregard her because of his girlfriend’s groundless suspicions?
An Yichen couldn’t do that at all.
“I’m making things difficult? Just for this simple request, An Yichen, you can’t even agree to it. Have you forgotten who brought me to this point in the first place? It’s you, it’s Bai Tingting! It’s your actions that offended Xie Jincheng and implicated me! Now you’re all fine, but what about me? Who will compensate me for what I’ve lost?”
Upon hearing Xia Beibei mention Xie Jincheng again, a trace of guilt flashed through An Yichen’s heart.
Indeed, that day, he was too impulsive, and he offended Xie Jincheng at the No. 7 Club.
“It has nothing to do with Bai Tingting. Wu Yan, I will marry you. Why don’t you believe me?”
“Why? You ask me why?”
Xia Beibei looked at An Yichen with a cold gaze. “An Yichen, I told you before, if you don’t love me anymore, you can just say it! You don’t have to treat me like this. I, Wu Yan, can live without anyone! I really didn’t expect you to be so dismissive of me, and I never imagined that your mother would want me dead! An Yichen, we’re done now! We are no longer friends but… enemies!”
Xia Beibei turned abruptly and quickly disappeared into the night.
“Wu Yan! Wu Yan! You misunderstood…”
An Yichen was stunned for a moment. When he returned to his senses and tried to chase after her, all he saw was a gradually receding car…
Wu Yan’s pride, no matter when or where did not allow anyone to trample on it.
She could sell everything for money, but she couldn’t bear her beloved treating her with indifference and apathy.
Sitting in the car, Xia Beibei leaned her head on Yan Yicheng’s shoulder.
Yan Yicheng glanced at her.
“A little bit.”
Xia Beibei replied in a daze, then leaned against Mr. Yan’s side and slowly closed her eyes.
When she opened her eyes again, it was the following day.
The bright and warm sunlight spilled in from the window. Xia Beibei rubbed her eyes and realized she was lying on a comfortable and soft bed. She recognized this bed, recognized this room. This was Xie Jincheng’s bedroom.
The room was very neat, and there was only her trace on the bed.
It was evident that Boss Yan did not rest here last night.
Xia Beibei slowly got up and saw that new clothes and slippers were already prepared by the bedside.
“What an all-around, full-spectrum, top-notch boyfriend in China!” she silently exclaimed.
With that, Xia Beibei changed into the new clothes, put on the new slippers, and headed to the bathroom. Everything in the bathroom was also brand new, and it was clear that Boss Yan had prepared everything well in advance.
Xia Beibei looked at the couple’s towels, the couple’s water cups, and even the couple’s toothbrushes on the washstand. She couldn’t help but lower her head to look at the clothes she was wearing.
She suddenly remembered the couple pajamas that Boss Yan gave her when they returned from Hong Kong.
Speaking of which, what was Boss Yan’s home look like? Would it be similar to this newly decorated bedroom?
Hmm, Xia Beibei, what are you thinking?
Xia Beibei returned to her senses and gave her head a firm knock. She kept thinking about all sorts of things all day long. Do you still want to get ahead of yourself?
Xia Beibei: …
Actually, when I have thought about it, it’s not illegal to think like that.
She heard that Boss Yan’s enormous villa has a swimming pool, a garden, and a tennis court.
Ahem! The most important thing is that if you live there, you can carpool to work, and you won’t have to worry about rent anymore.
Well, Xia Beibei would never admit that she had such thoughts just to save money…
