The Most Loving Marriage In History: Master Mu’s Pampered Wife - Chapter 1269
1269 Appointment 2
When Xi Xiaye turned upon hearing that, she saw Xi Xinyi’s expression that was as pale as a ghost. Even her beautiful eyes darkened.
Xi Xinyi quickly picked up the teacup, which thankfully did not break. She looked up at Xi Xiaye and met that cold gaze of hers. She then shut her eyes embarrassedly and took in a deep breath, before silently lowering her head and pretending to be calm as she poured herself another cup of tea.
“Just say what you want to say.” Xi Xiaye did not have time to admire her sorry demeanor. Right now, she was indifferent to the sight of Xi Xinyi in such an embarassing state, so she was not too affected.
When Xi Xinyi heard that, her hand that held the cup subconsciously tightened. The second she saw Xi Xiaye’s calm expression, she relaxed. “You met Han Yifeng in New York, didn’t you? I heard that Chairman Mu…Brother-in-law and you both saw him!”
Xi Xinyi was impatient to find out because she remembered the condition that Mu Yuchen had set. She had been waiting to know how he was going to help her resolve this situation with Han Yifeng.
Perhaps because she knew Mu Yuchen’s abilities, she never doubted the conditions that he determined. In fact, Mu Yuchen did not have many interactions with Han Yifeng. Since he met up with Han Yifeng, perhaps it was about her matter then.
Xi Xiaye could feel Xi Xinyi’s nervousness as her tense face stared straight at her.
“How’s my son? He must have told you, didn’t he? Say something. How’s Xiao Xuan? It’s been more than a year. He must be quite grown up, isn’t he?” Anxiety, nerves, and uneasiness were entangled within Xi Xinyi.
“They’re both doing well. The child knows how to call his father now. You can tell that Han Yifeng takes good care of your son. He just wasn’t too willing to bring you up,” Xi Xiaye did not hide anything as she answered directly.
Xi Xinyi’s expression looked even worse now. She laughed self-mockingly. “I should have known. He hates me to the bones and is extremely disappointed with me too.”
“Actually, I’d know even if he doesn’t say it. He still fell in love with you in the end. Xi Xiaye, you must find it quite ironic, don’t you? In the past, no matter how hard you tried, he didn’t seem to reciprocate, but now he…he likes you,” Xi Xinyi spoke without looking up at Xi Xiaye while her voice was bitter.
“I should have understood that from the moment I broke that bottle of stars you folded for him, I should have understood…I just didn’t want to admit it. I always thought that I had too many beautiful moments in the past with him, that I could use the memorable good times to tie his heart down.
“But I underestimated you, underestimated his feelings. You don’t know that to me, I’m not sad about him not falling in love with me. Instead, it’s knowing that after liking me, he fell in love with you once again. This makes it worse and harder for me to accept. That truly hit me in the face and told me loud and clear that I might not stand a chance again,” Xi Xinyi spoke, seeming to have calmed down and not being as anxious as before.
This was Xi Xinyi’s first time being so honest and breaking down in front of someone else. Even if she did not want to admit it, what else could she say now?
“I won’t pity you,” Xi Xiaye calmly answered and lowered her head to sip the tea.
“I’m not saying these things to get your pity. You know that I hate that. I just want to know, since the two of you talked to Han Yifeng, how’s his attitude? Is he still as determined as before? Doesn’t he want to give me a chance at all? Not even visitation rights for our son?”
She had not seen her son for more than a year now. Every time she thought about it, she could not help but feel heartbroken. “What does he want? How can I get him to give my son back to me? It’s not like the Han family doesn’t have enough women to bear children with Han Yifeng. Why do they have to take my son away? Why!?”
Towards the end, Xi Xinyi started to sound stirred up. Her fists were clenched as she slammed the table hard.
“You’ll have to ask him this question yourself. I can’t help you there. I don’t deny that I did talk to him, and the topics revolved around you. I said that you’ve changed a lot in the past year and that I hoped he could face this all more frankly.”
“What about him? What did he say?” Xi Xinyi quickly asked.
Xi Xiaye looked up silently at her pale little face. Moments after that, she lowered his gaze and looked calmly at the teacup. “He said that that’s all there is between the two of you, that it’s all in the past now.”
When Xi Xinyi heard that, her body froze as if she suddenly turned rigid. With some effort, she regained her composure.
“That’s all there is to us, and that it’s all in the past now? Han Yifeng, when you really want to be mean and heartless, no one else can compare to you,” Xi Xinyi muttered. Her eyes could not help but turn moist as she lowered her head and did not look up again.
Xi Xiaye was not interested in watching her be all broken-hearted, so she put her cup down and got up with waning interest.
“Hold on! What about Brother-in-law!? What did he say? He must have said something to Han Yifeng? Did Han Yifeng mention any conditions so that he’d return my son to me? What does he want? How much money does he want? I’ll give him as much as he wants as long as he returns our son to me! I’m willing to sign the papers and stop bothering him as long as he’ll return my son! Can he? I’m begging you. Tell Brother-in-law to let him know. Otherwise, you can let him know too! I’m left with nothing. I haven’t got a single kin with me. I only have one son left. He can’t just take him away from me so heartlessly! He can’t do that! Xi Xiaye, Sister, I’m begging you, please! It doesn’t matter how huge of a price I need to pay. I’m willing to pay it as long as I get my son back! I just want my son back!”
When she saw that Xi Xiaye had turned around to leave, Xi Xinyi did not hold back. She held onto Xi Xiaye’s sleeves in panic and lowered her pride to beg.
“Sis, I’m begging you. I’m begging you! I’ve got nothing left. If this goes on, I’ll break down. My mother’s not doing great either. You and Aunt have won it all. You’ve won. I just want my son back! I gave birth to him, but I haven’t even heard him call me ‘Mother’ or watched him grow up. Han Yifeng can’t be so cruel to me. Brother-in-law promised me that he’d help me fight for it. he promised!” She choked on her sobs as she begged, and her voice scattered in the wind at the end.
Why was it that, at such a moment, Xi Xiaye felt sad for her?
