Sugar And Spice: The Ceo’s Feisty Wife Book 1 Chapter 1
Feng Xinying was sitting in the front row at her graduation ceremony in the school waiting for the principal to announce who was the top student. All the students were given their certificate one by one for finishing their high school. Being extremely intelligent, she excelled in almost every subject apart from also representing her school in swimming, horse riding and athletics in state as well as national levels.
But no one could think that beneath that beautiful, curvaceous body one could die for, a girl with smart brains existed. Many boys in the school objectified her but she never cared and when she proved herself, she was rather praised.
Daughter of a billionaire, Feng Zhantian, she was supposed to take the throne of the Feng business empire once she graduated from the college, and she was all set to go to America to pursue her graduation in course that lead to masters in business administration. The path was lined with roses and she had also packed her bags. She was looking forward to the most prestigious award from the school, as she waited there with baited breath.
Her father Feng Zhantian doted on her because he loved her mother crazily, who had died when she was only three. Since then he had ensured that she doesn't get any trouble in raising her up. For that he ended up marrying two more times in order to give her motherly love. Unfortunately, those two wives of his were nothing more than parasites. They were hardly ever interested in Feng Xinying and were only engrossed in social gatherings and outings or spending his money. He tolerated the second one for three years and the third one for five years before divorcing them. After that he decided not to marry at all, but there were rumors that he had fallen in love with a pretty woman who worked as a general manager in one of the hotels that belonged to the Feng Conglomerate.
Feng Conglomerate was a company that had over forty different types of businesses under one flag. They were into hotels, copper manufacturing, software development, tea plantation, and textile industry amongst others. Feng Zhantian was a ruthless businessman but an equally doted father. He loved his daughter to the extent that she was really spoiled. Insulting people was like a nature of hers. She never even thought twice before insulting people rudely in any situation. She would talk straight to anyone.
Whenever she attended social functions with her father, boys would line up for her attention, but all she did was to smirk at them and be very discourteous. The girls disliked being with her for her feisty behavior and often she was left alone tending to herself. In those circles people were afraid to mess with her or even speak against her because she was the daughter of Feng Zhantian, so they thought that it was better to not talk to her and stay away, as they did not want to suffer from his wrath.
Her father would notice it and encourage her to mix with people, but she never paid heed to any of his advices. He was beginning to get worried about her and would blame himself for spoiling her too much. Her demands were met with even before she spoke them out. She was given so many debit cards to use for shopping that even she had lost the count. Her wardrobe had the most exquisite collection.
Having a beautiful model-like figure and petite features, she looked gorgeous. Often the designers would ask her to walk in their fashion shows and model their clothes.
"Thank you students and parents for being a part of the graduation ceremony. Now I would like to call upon the Vice Principal to say a vote of thanks and also invite the Principal to give away the most prestigious award of the school. Let me remind you that all the students who have received this award had been our most well deserved students and it has been seen that they have done excellent in their lives. You can find some of their pictures with name hanging in our hall of fame. So without much ado, I invite our Vice Principal to speak," said the compere amongst a loud applause.
The Vice Principal came forward and spoke a little about the institution and then called the principal on the stage to give away the most prestigious award.
The principal was a burly man who was Feng Zhantian's close friend. Feng Zhantian had donated a lot of money to the school, and most teachers and school students knew about it. The fact that Feng Xinying was also one of the brilliant students at school made her the front-runner for the award. However, there had several protests from the students that she was being given this award. They said that she was being presented the award only because she was the daughter of the most influential man in the country and not because of her own abilities. Even though she had proved herself so well, she was trolled.
Today for her graduation ceremony Feng Zhantian was sitting in the rows with other parents.
The Principal spoke for some time about the importance of being active in school and doing things with passion whatever the students chose to do in their career before announcing the name of the top student. That award would alone fetch scholarship in the US universities and so she was all the more excited. Though she did not need the scholarship, it was a feather in her cap. She was least bothered that there were other needy students who could have used the award for their benefit and get scholarships. Her selfishness ruled at the moment.
The Principal finally announced the name, "The award for the best student goes to…" he paused.
She started getting up from her chair.
"Xie Yuansheng," he continued.
