Beloved Marriage in High Society - Chapter 60.1
It took a while for Zhen Han to hear Yan Man Jia’s voice on the other end of the line.
“Come back! Wherever you are now, come back here immediately!”
Zhen Han’s tone was a bit impulsive, his hand was squeezing the phone tightly, but he waited patiently for Yan Man Jia’s reply.
Yan Man Jia seemed to be in a tight spot, “Han Han, I’ll be back as soon as possible after I settle with him.”
“F*ck!” Zhen Han cursed. He was so furious that he’s stuttering with his words. On the other side, the person on the phone was changed.
“This is a matter between Man Man and me. You better don’t intervene.” Although Xiao Zi’s voice was slightly sloppy, he was undoubtedly warning Zhen Han. He thought the person who made Yan Man Jia decide to say something to him was Zhen Han.
“F*ck you! Just you wait!” Zhen Han hung up the phone and walked back to the living room, not planning to hide what he just learned, “Yan Sui, Xiao Zi is in Hai Cheng. Give me his address, I’m going there to beat his ass.”
Before Yan Sui could react to what Zhen Han said, Meng Ting’s eyes instantly lit up.
He too, agreed that Xiao Zi should be beaten. He didn’t love Yan Man Jia but still dared to delay her for so many years. He deserved a beating!
Yan Sui’s eyebrows furrowed slightly at the sight of the two staring at him, and he took out his phone to make a call.
“He’s at the seaside villa….” It wasn’t Yan Man Jia who went to look for him, but it was he who went to Yan Man Jia’s residence.
Zhen Han turned around and left the moment Yan Sui finished saying, but Meng Ting didn’t follow him immediately. He looked at Yan Sui without saying anything, but what he wanted to express was all over his face. How could Yan Sui not understand him?
He tapped at the armrest of the sofa and said coldly, “Well, how is one beating enough for him…..”
“What about two beatings?” Meng Ting continued. In his opinion, there isn’t anyone who is not afraid of being beaten up, and if one’s not scared of it, it’s because he hasn’t been beaten up enough.
Yan Sui, who was still hesitating, couldn’t help but raise the corner of his mouth when he heard what Meng Ting said. He gently rubbed Meng Ting’s cheek and nodded, approving Zhen Han and Meng Ting’s decision.
“Go ahead, but don’t get hurt.”
“Yeah.” Meng Ting nodded twice, and he caught up with Zhen Han. As for Yan Sui, he had to arrive there a little later.
“Cousin willing to let you go?” Although Zhen Han was still mad, he couldn’t help but ask him when he saw Meng Ting sitting at his side.
Meng Ting looked at Zhen Han strangely before nodding, “She’s me and Yan Sui’s aunt, after all,. We can’t let others bully her.”
Zhen Han hummed softly and didn’t reply. He saw how Meng Ting fought. Since Yan Sui allowed him to go and Meng Ting even said so, he could only continue driving to the villa along with him.
The seaside villa was where Yan Sui’s friends gathered together last time. The scenery was beautiful, and Yan Man Jia usually lived here when she came back. They sent a few nanny and driver to the villa. Technically, Yan Man Jia was living a convenient life.
Before returning from abroad, she was not on speaking terms with Xiao Zi for a long time. Xiao Zi was dashing as ever, and his affairs remained unchanged. While she was slowly aging and had nothing left to compete with the young ones at his side. She thought returning back to her country was the end of their relationship.
It’s been more than two months since she returned before Yan Sui and Meng Ting got married. Only then did regrets dawn on Xiao Zi, and suddenly he came after her to Hai Cheng. Yan Man Jia had been actively participating in exhibitions and parties ever since she came back. The first time she encountered Xiao Zi, she forced herself to smile, but after the second and third time…. The fact that he appeared too often exposed his intentions and made her heart filled with confusion.
This morning, she only saw Xiao Zi’s back from a distance at a painting exhibition. Before he could turn around, she ran away, fearing that she would once again return to her pathetic and miserable situation.
But it shouldn’t have been like this. A woman from Yans could get anything she wanted. How could it end like this?
When they’re not on speaking terms, she once thought how Xiao Zi would regret it and come looking for her one day, but she waited until she returned home in despair, and yet he didn’t come. Now that he did come after her, she didn’t feel proud, only annoyed and irritated.
She was in such a bad mood that she subconsciously returned back to the old mansion. Although Meng Ting’s words didn’t exactly make her happy, at least it made her decide that she and Xiao Zi were entirely impossible.
She went back to the seaside villa because she wanted to clear her head and organize herself, but she never expected Xiao Zi would be waiting for her at the entrance.
She was only eighteen when she accidentally conceived Zhen Han, and now that she’s forty-three with Xiao Zi two years older than her.
But he looked the same as he was during his young times, handsome and elegant, and the smile at the corner of his mouth was still charming. The way he turned around and looked at her made Yan Man Jia recalled back all the time lost from chasing after him.
What could she do? She gave him all her love and still couldn’t receive any emotions from Xiao Zi.
Perhaps there was a time where he was fond of her. But just like Meng Ting told her, he didn’t love her. He overlooked her hardship and insecurity. No, to be precise, he did notice it but just didn’t care about it.
She, Yan Man Jia, was just the crazier and most insistent one among his many admirers. She was never special to him. The difference between love and like lies in being special and unique. She and Xiao Zi never had those before.
She lost, she was wrong, she admitted it, there was nothing to dwell on anymore.
Xiao Zi didn’t know it was the glance he gave her that made Yan Man Jia really make up her mind. He only saw Yan Man Jia walking towards him with a smile on her face instead of faking a smile or fleeing as she had done on previous occasions.
“Are you done figuring it out?” Xiao Zi reached out to ruffle Yan Man Jia’s hair but was dodged by her. He helplessly withdrew his hand, “After all these years, you still love to be troublesome.”
He said, then asked casually, “When are you going back with me?”
“Troublesome…..” Yan Man Jia’s emotions once again rippled unconsciously. After almost three years of not being on speaking terms, Xiao Zi still believed that she was just being troublesome.
“There’s no going back, Xiao Zi. There’s no going back.” Yan Man Jia said softly, then stared into his eyes to tell him with more certainty, “We’re over. Completely over.”
Xiao Zi’s face went cold at what she said. Yan Man Jia wanted to continue saying, but he held her hand, “Are you sure you want to say that to me here?”
Yan Man Jia tried to shake off Xiao Zi’s hand but couldn’t. She frowned, “We have nothing to talk about. I used to love you and was willing to ruin myself for you. Now that I don’t love you anymore, I’ll just leave on my own. To you, it’s just one less annoying and unattractive lover.”
“Man Man….. Is there any meaning in belittling me and yourself?” Trying to look as normal as he could, Xiao Zi whispered, “Let’s go inside and have a talk.”
The villa was relatively peaceful and quiet, but there were still people passing by occasionally. Yan Man Jia didn’t want others to joke about the entanglement between her and Xiao Zi. She hesitated a while and nodded, “Then let’s go inside and talk. When you’re done, leave.”
When Yan Man Jia entered the villa, Xiao Zi naturally sat on the sofa and turned on the TV. She asked the nanny to serve him some tea before heading upstairs to wash her face and change her clothes. But she didn’t expect that Xiao Zi wouldn’t wait for her downstairs peacefully.
He entered the room when Yan Man Jia was in the bathroom. Before he could do anything, the phone that Yan Man Jia put on the dressing table rang. Zhen Han’s contact name was “Big Baby”. Xiao Zi frowned and picked up the phone, and that’s how the chaotic conversation played out.
Yan Man Jia was furious, but Xiao Zi was 20cm taller and fitter than her. It was much more difficult for her to snatch back her mobile phone.
“Xiao Zi, enough is enough!” Yan Man Jia slapped Xiao Zi then snatched her phone back, but Zhen Han already hung up. She looked at Xiao Zi angrily. She was so furious that her body was trembling, “How dare you talk to my son like that!”
The back of Xiao Zi’s hand touched the part where he was slapped by Yan Man Jia, and the gentleman in him was gone. He took a step closer and met her gaze, “If it wasn’t for him, we would have been married. Don’t you think so?”
If Yan Man Jia was pregnant with his child, the elders from the two families would have let them marry without him proposing in the first place. But Yan Man Jia didn’t know which bastard’s child she was pregnant with. How could the Xiao family let him marry someone like her?
“It’ll end with a divorce anyway!” Yan Man Jia understood what Xiao Zi was trying to imply. She lowered her head to look at Zhen Han’s phone number, and her eyes showed a determined look. Although she conceived Zhen Han by accident, she never regretted giving birth to him.
It didn’t exist back then, and it indeed wouldn’t exist now. All these years, she and Xiao Zi didn’t have any children together because of Yan Man Jia. What she wanted had always been Xiao Zi’s love, not anything else. Her child is Zhen Han and will always be Zhen Han.
“It’s fortunate that we’re not married. Otherwise, it will be such a hassle.” Yan Man Jia walked towards the door and pulled it open, “Get out, we have nothing more to talk about…….”
If Xiao Zi really wanted to let her go, he and Yan Man Jia wouldn’t have been entangled with each other for so many years in the first place. He came closer and pinned Yan Man Jia against the door. Xiao Zi started kissing her despite her struggles, even when Yan Man Jia bit him, he still didn’t let her go.
Yan Man Jia’s fiery attitude was not fake either. She was somewhat ruthless with her movements. As soon as she broke free, she took anything she could find and started fighting with Xiao Zi.
Xiao Zi looked at Yan Man Jia, who was flaring her teeth and claws at him, and his expression softened a bit. He thought that he should just let her vent on him.
