Zhou Tianyu and gang could vaguely sense her thoughts. “Less is more!”
Wen Xinya nodded slightly. “Overdoing will seem deliberate. We’re all in the same circle—every household has its tough tale—people aren’t stupid.”
When the time came, everyone would think that Ning Shuqian drove a wedge between her and her father, Wen Haowen—with a wife who had shared the same bed for fifteen years on one hand, and a daughter who had never lived together and had suddenly appeared out of nowhere on the other hand. Kinship was weak in the circle—it was not uncommon to first have a stepmother, followed by a stepfather—in the future, Wen Haowen’s attitude towards her would cease to affect her.
Fawning on her, Xu Zhenyu said, “Leave this matter in the good hands of myself and Han Mofeng.”
Wen Xinya nodded. Xu Zhenyu was full of wild ideas while Han Mofeng was cautious, making them a golden team which could accomplish more with less effort.
Zhou Tianyu suddenly widened her eyes. “Damn, Wen Xinya, those who plot against you are simply courting death. Luckily I had good judgment then—it’s much better being your friend than foe.”
Han Mofeng, who had been quirky all along, put up a serious front. “Miss Wen, I don’t mean to chide you, but others have carefully designed their traps every time, and you’re always turning the joke on them so effortlessly—like how you dealt with the rumors that they’d spread regarding what happened at Tianyu’s birthday party; that you’d framed Ning Yuya—how wicked of you!”
Everyone in the room burst out laughing.
Xu Zhenyu, however, was not pleased and planted a fist on Han Mofeng’s face. “Damn, Han Mofeng, bet you’re an elementary school graduate! Is this how you use the word ‘wicked’? Ning Shuqian and the other two bitches have tried to harm Xinya over and again, that’s wicked.”
Zhou Tianyu chimed in. “Exactly, watch your words.”
Wen Xinya jumped up from the couch, rushed towards Han Mofeng, and started hitting him. “Han Mofeng, I say you’re tired of living. How dare you say that I’m wicked.”
“Ah! Not my face—if this goes on I’ll have to go to Korea for plastic surgery!” Han Mofeng screamed in agony, keeping up with the joke.
Wen Xinya laughed. “Plastic surgery in Korea won’t do justice to your lovable, delightful, and captivating face—you should go to Thailand for surgery instead, and let us experience for ourselves the looks of a transvestite.”
Wen Xinya’s words intensified everyone’s laughter and incited their cheers, and eventually, Han Mofeng had no choice but to surrender with his hands on his head.
Zhou Tianyu saw Han Mofeng’s colorful face, like a palette, and laughed so hard that her stomach hurt. “Han Mofeng, you’ve already turned into a transvestite without having to go for plastic surgery in Thailand!”
Han Mofeng helplessly retrieved a napkin from the table to wipe off the lipstick on his face. At this moment, the waiter came over with food, and when he saw Han Mofeng’s face, his face turned red and weirdly twisted.
Everyone erupted in laughter once again.
The waiter’s face strangely started twitching, and he hurriedly left the food on the table and rushed out—definitely to find a remote corner to laugh his head off.
“You guys have utterly disgraced me.” As Han Mofeng recalled the look in the waiter’s eyes when he saw him, as well as his expression, he felt a wave of gastric pain—oh, his lifetime of good reputation, sure enough… only backstabbers and women were hard to handle! In this world, it was better to offend anything else other than women.
Han Mofeng went to the washroom to clean himself up when Gu Junling said, “Xu-er, previously, didn’t you say that you’ll be going to the military camp after Xinya’s homecoming party. Has it been decided?”
Xu Zhenyu’s smile faded into a faraway look in his eyes. “Already decided—at end of this month, to the Northwest Main Military Camp.”
Wen Xinya halted her chopsticks instantly. “Why the Northwest Main Military Camp, the environment’s harsh with arduous conditions over there—with the influence of your Xu Family, you ought to have better choices.”
Zhou Tianyu widened her eyes in disbelief. “Xu-er, do you have a loose screw somewhere or took the wrong medicine—how can a pampered young master like yourself endure the hardship at the northwest area? Don’t cry for mom and dad, wanting to go home, when the time comes.”
Ling Qingxuan shook himself awake. “Damn, are you crazy?” Saying which, he stretched his hand out to feel Xu Zhenyu’s forehead.
Xu Zhenyu pushed his hand away. “You’re the crazy one—I’m doing fine, why are you cursing me out of the blue!”
Seeing that Xu Zhenyu’s prideful character showed up, Ling Qingxuan heaved a sigh of relief. “Alright, still normal. As I said, with your Xu Family’s military influence, it’s a piece of cake to insert a mere soldier like yourself into a few missions to return with military medals and glory, save for going to the northeast to suffer hardship—something that someone will only do if he lost his mind from a donkey’s kick. Also, how can your old master bear to let you suffer such hardship?”
Han Mofeng returned from the washroom, saw the exaggerated smile one Ling Qingxuan’s face, and asked, “What are you guys talking about?”
Ling Qingxuan laughed heartily. “Xu-er said that he’s going to enroll into the military in the northeast. What a joke.”
Han Mofeng went silent momentarily. “It’s true, just the coming 22nd this month, hardly a few days left.” Enraged, Old Mr. Xu nearly broke Xu-er’s doglegs but was unable to change his determined mind.
Han Mofeng’s words were met with a moment of silence. Wen Xinya frowned. “Why must it be the northwest? After all, in the capital city, there’ll be people to watch out for you—there’s no need to suffer too much hardship. Anyway, the northeast area’s close to the borders, and is often met with terrorism and hostile attacks. Thus, it’s extremely dangerous.”
Xu Zhenyu hung his head, safely keeping the bone-grinding emotions that showed up in his eyes, and only after a long while said in a hoarse voice, “Since I’ve already decided, I must do my best—although the Northwest Main Military Camp is arduous, it’s the best in hardening people, and it’s faster to accumulate military credits there.”
He wanted to possess the greatest abilities within the shortest time, only then would he be fit to stand beside her.
Gu Junling frowned. “You’ve decided to go to the northwest to accumulate military credits?”
Gu Junling’s gaze discreetly took a look at Wen Xinya—within the group, only he clearly understood the extent of Xu Zhenyu’s feelings towards Wen Xinya, which was so strong that he could do anything for her, even if it was… his life!
“Yup! So that I won’t be too far behind this bunch of bosom friends, also to save my old master and my father from chasing behind my ass everyday, nagging that I’m crap. In the future… my brother’s career path will also be smoother.” He couldn’t help but think of the dream—because he was imprisoned for possessing drugs, the Xu Family was banished to the borders, and after Grandpa died, the Xu Family fell into a slump.
He had to admit that it was merely a dream, but it constantly affected his thoughts and actions—he wanted to go to the northeast, not only because of Wen Xinya but also for the Xu Family.
Gu Junling wanted to continue persuading, but Han Mofeng said, “It’s useless. We know about Xu-er’s stubbornness.”
Gu Junling and Ling Qingxuan have no choice but to shut up. They had grown up together with Xu-er—from young, once he had decided on something, no one had ever been able to change his mind.
