Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heiress Chapter 724 – Discussing the Divorce
Thinking that he had made progress in trying to get into Wen Xinya’s good books, Wen Haowen felt extremely thrilled. After all, she had just turned eighteen and he thought that she would be gullible. He believed that he would definitely be able to coax her.
Wen Haowen looked at Ning Shuqian, knowing that he had already succeeded in his first step of the plan.
He had already prepared the divorce agreement long ago. However, he had no choice but to put it off for a while because of Wen Xinya’s abduction and Old Mr. Wen’s decision to make him go to Harbor City for a business trip.
Since he had already decided to let Old Mr. Wen and Wen Xinya know that he wanted to get closer to them, he had to prove his sincerity by settling the divorce as soon as possible.
Wen Haowen was again reminded of the gorgeous and seductive girls at Jiayuan Club who were great in bed. He could not help but feel aroused and he gradually got an erection.
Beginning to get fidgety, he grabbed the divorce agreement drafted by the lawyer and headed to the hospital.
Ever since Ning Shuqian was hospitalized, Wen Haowen had never visited her and he had only found out about her condition from the main physician.
As soon as Wen Haowen arrived in the hospital, he asked about Ning Shuqian’s condition from the doctor.
He felt that it would be more appropriate to be careful when the divorce was concerned.
The doctor said, “Madam has already recovered and she can be discharged soon.”
A little hesitant, Wen Haowen said, “Didn’t you say that she became delusional because of the injury on her head which caused her to lose control of her emotions? I heard that such illnesses can’t be cured.”
The doctor answered, “Madam had merely lost control of her emotions because she was overly agitated. Her condition is not that serious yet. We’ve managed to stabilize her condition by giving her oral medication and psychological treatment. Don’t worry.”
Wen Haowen heaved a sigh of relief and headed to Ning Shuqian’s ward.
Ning Shuqian was being bored and watching television. Upon sight of Wen Haowen, she sprung up from the couch agitatedly and dashed towards him. “Haowen, Haowen, are you here to visit me?”
Ever since she was hospitalized, Wen Haowen had never visited her and she had been living in fear and anxiety. She initially wanted to call Wen Haowen, but could not bring herself to do so, for she was afraid that he was still upset and be repulsed by her.
Wen Haowen’s face grew sullen and he shunned Ning Shuqian. “I came here today to talk to you about the divorce.”
Ning Shuqian was instantly dumbfounded. She stood by the door and stared at Wen Haowen. He appeared calm and had a look of disdain on his face, sending cold chills down her spine. She shuddered and continuously tried to force a lopsided smile. “Haowen, you’ve finally come to see me. You have no idea how much I missed you…”
Wen Haowen stared at the lopsided smile on her haggard face and said in a revolting manner, “Ning Shuqian, you evil bitch. Don’t bother trying that with me. This is a divorce agreement. If you’re smart, sign your name here and I’ll offer you some benefits on the account that we used to be married. If not, don’t blame me for being heartless.”
Ning Shuqian could no longer put up with the smile on her face and stood still quietly, allowing her tears to flow freely and blur her vision. “Haowen, are you kidding me? Why would you divorce me? You said that you would love me and dote on me for the rest of our lives.”
Although she had already expected that Wen Haowen would divorce her, she still found it hard to accept now that he was telling her straight to her face. The sweet memories of their past flashed through her mind, a stark contrast to the cold and cruel behavior that Wen Haowen was showing her. It made her look even more pathetic and pitiful.
Wen Haowen stared at her pitiful mannerisms and suddenly felt his heart go soft. However, he soon became self-righteous. “Ning Shuqian, don’t act like I have let you down. I’m telling you, I’ve already shown you plenty of kindness and sympathy. If you didn’t pretend to be pregnant and made a fool out of everyone in the family and made us become a laughing stock, I wouldn’t have divorced you. You’ve brought all of this upon yourself.”
The thought of Ning Shuqian’s false pregnancy causing him to turn into a joke and laughing stock made him feel extremely exasperated. Not to mention, he even ran into the despicable Jiang Shaofeng, who mocked him relentlessly for marrying an unchaste and vicious woman.
Back then, everyone else laughed alongside Jiang Shaofeng.
Ning Shuqian fell onto the ground and hugged Wen Haowen’s thigh tightly while bawling. “Haowen, I know you can’t forgive me. However, I did all of this in order to plot against Wen Xinya for you!”
Wen Haowen kicked her away but did not manage to pull himself away from her because of how tightly she was grabbing onto him. He was also afraid of hurting Ning Shuqian and resulting in damage to his advantage in the divorce. “Bitch, shut up. Don’t push the blame to me. You’re the vicious one.”
Ning Shuqian crawled pathetically beside his feet and cried, “Haowen… believe me. I really did it for you. Look at that bitch Wen Xinya. She completely replaced your position in the Wen Family. She sowed discord between you and Old Mr. Wen. Now that she’s already legal, we must get rid of her as soon as possible, lest you lose your position in the Wen Family…”
Wen Haowen barked. “Shameless bitch. Now that things have already come this, you’re still thinking of sowing discord between me and the old man. You’re utterly wicked. I must have been blind to have married you.”
However, Old Mr. Wen had indeed been defending Wen Xinya and reprimanding him. He had even beaten Wen Haowen because of Wen Xinya, completely disregarding the fact that Wen Haowen was his son.
He was again reminded of the time when Old Mr. Wen beat him up relentlessly because of Wen Xinya’s abduction, after which he even spoke to him callously.
Ning Shuqian knew that her words had made some impact on Wen Haowen. She bawled loudly again and said, “Haowen, I know you still care about your relationship with the old man. I know you still care about the fact that you used to be married to Mo Yunyao and you’re not willing to deal with Wen Xinya. But I’m your wife. How could I watch you give the Wen Corporation away to her? The Wen Corporation is the fruit of your labor.”
