However, Hua Xin&x2019;s excitement died down as soon as she entered the living room because she could clearly see Wen Tong having her breakfast at the dining table. All these while, Hua Xin had thought that it was Gao Mengjin who had specifically arranged for the driver to pick her up just because he wanted to see her.
Since Jiang Yuning had her back towards Hua Xin, Hua Xin did not realize that she was there too. Moreover, Jiang Yuning did not intend to reveal herself so soon.
Wen Tong could read Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mind and therefore, she quickly stood up before she brought a cup of coffee with her as she sat down at the sofa in the living room.
&x201C;Miss Hua, isn&x2019;t it nice to finally meet you face-to-face?&x201D;
Hua Xin had an extremely ugly expression on her face because although Gao Mengjin was seated at the dining table, he did not even bother to greet her but he was ignoring her completely instead.
&x201C;I guess you must have been really happy and excited on the way here. Were you looking forward to receiving some good news from my husband? Perhaps you were secretly hoping that my husband and I&x2019;s relationship have already come to an end and you would be the one to replace me?&x201D; Wen Tong asked as she spoke in an elegant manner.
Hua Xin was speechless.
&x201C;The reason I have called you here today is to sort out the relationship that you have with my husband. What do you think about that?&x201D; Wen Tong continued questioning Hua Xin as she looked at her directly.
On the other hand, Jiang Yuning and Vera were quietly enjoying the show from the dining table.
Was this really&x2026;the Hua Xin who had asked Jiang Yuning to take off her high heels and dance for everyone at the banquet dinner the other night?
In front of Wen Tong&x2026;Hua Xin looked so small and humiliated.
The third party was being called out by the wife and lectured in front of an outsider.
Hua Xin felt as though she wanted to find a hole to hide in.
What else could she do? All she could do was to rely on the man whom she had placed all of her hopes on but at this time, that man was being extremely cold towards her as he continued eating his breakfast without saying a word.
&x201C;I thought that you should be very good at sweet-talking, since you are able to be a third party in someone else&x2019;s marriage. Why are you dumbfounded in front of me?&x201D; Wen Tong asked in a satirical manner as she glared at Hua Xin. &x201C;You have already been with my husband for such a long time. Don&x2019;t you have any opinions at all? Have you lost your ability to speak?&x201D;
&x201C;Mrs. Gao&x2026;I hope that you will not be so hard on me.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh&x2026;&x201D; Wen Tong laughed as she was filled with rage. &x201C;Are you telling me that I should be lenient towards you and leave room for you now? Why should I be nice to a third party in my marriage? Are you serious? How old are you?&x201D;
Hua Xin was completely helpless and defeated in front of Wen Tong because she was nothing in front of her. She was just a third party with no status and no right to speak at all.
She was facing the legitimate wife of her gold sponsor and her existence as a third party in their relationship was a sin in itself.
&x201C;Mengjin&x2026;&x201D; Hua Xin called out as tears flowed down her face because she felt so humiliated at that moment. She looked towards Gao Mengjin&x2019;s direction, hoping that he would come to her rescue, but at this time, Gao Mengjin acted as though he could not hear her and he continued sipping his tea as he read the newspaper.
&x201C;Do you finally understand how much you mean to him now?&x201D; Wen Tong replied, extremely satisfied with Gao Mengjin&x2019;s response.
&x201C;Mrs. Gao&x2026;did I do anything to offend you?&x201D; Hua Xin lowered her head as she asked Wen Tong in a serious manner.
Wen Tong could not help but laugh out loud as soon as she heard Hua Xin&x2019;s question. &x201C;Hey, Gao Mengjin! Is this really the type of woman that you are interested in? Are you trying to humiliate me by looking for this type of woman outside? A third party in my marriage actually has the guts to ask me if she has offended me in any way! Don&x2019;t you think that this is absolutely ridiculous? She is trying to snatch my husband from me&x2026;isn&x2019;t this a deadly sin already?&x201D;
Hua Xin did not know what else to say. All that she could do was to stand in front of Wen Tong with her head lowered.
&x201C;Tell me what you intend to do after this.&x201D;
Hua Xin obviously did not want to give up on Gao Mengjin. Otherwise, she would be left with nothing at all.
However, Gao Mengjin did not take her side or back her up at all. Therefore, Hua Xin could only stand there helplessly as Wen Tong continued reprimanding and humiliating her.
As they were both still engaged in their confrontation, Jiang Yuning suddenly said, &x201C;Eat a little more. Otherwise, you might suffer from gastritis.&x201D;
As soon as Hua Xin heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s voice, she lifted her head and looked towards the dining table immediately. At this time, she saw the figure of a woman who looked just like Jiang Yuning having breakfast at the dining table. Hua Xin clenched her fists immediately.
This was impossible. Jiang Yuning could not be related to the Gao family.
She must have heard wrongly. Something must be wrong with her vision.
&x201C;Butler, please bring my breakfast over here,&x201D; Wen Tong instructed the butler to bring her breakfast over to the living room when she saw that Hua Xin did not react at all. &x201C;Little Yuning, would you accompany me as I eat my breakfast?&x201D;
&x201C;Sure. I would love to!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she smiled.
At this time, Hua Xin finally saw Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face clearly. It turned out that the other woman sitting at the dining table was really Jiang Yuning!
&x201C;Why are you here?&x201D; Hua Xin asked in surprise. &x201C;Are you here to look for Mrs. Gao? Jiang Yuning&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Shh&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she gestured by placing a finger on her lips. &x201C;Yes, I am here to look for Mrs. Gao. What about you?&x201D;
&x201C;Just because of you? You are trying to scheme against me just because you have some connection to the Lu family? Are you kidding me? Mengjin, don&x2019;t trust anything she says. She is a liar!&x201D;
At this time, Wen Tong suddenly stood up and walked towards Hua Xin before giving her a tight slap across her face. &x201C;You have no manners at all! This is the Gao family mansion. Who gave you the right to yell? Let me tell you, Hua Xin&x2014;you will never be able to repay the debts that you owe me in this lifetime!&x201D;
Hua Xin placed her hand on her cheek and looked at both Wen Tong and Jiang Yuning as tears welled up in her eyes.
&x201C;Both of you are in this together? You two are plotting against me?&x201D;
&x201C;Plotting against you?&x201D; Wen Tong asked coldly as she stared at Hua Xin with her arms crossed in front of her chest. &x201C;Don&x2019;t you think that you are in fact the one plotting against me with your cheating and extramarital affair with my husband behind my back? You had better watch what you say in front of me because I already have the urge to beat you up right now.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you really find it so amusing or necessary to humiliate and insult me in front of an outsider?&x201D;
&x201C;It is indeed very interesting to me. However, I would still hit you whether there is only one outsider or even if there are a hundred people watching us right now. Why? Should I praise you for everything you have done instead?&x201D; Wen Tong replied indifferently. &x201C;Hua Xin, you should really stop being so shameless. If I were in your position right now, I would know when to give up and try to preserve the last shred of dignity I have left.&x201D;
After speaking, Wen Tong asked the butler to bring her checkbook over as she wrote a check for one million yuan before throwing it on the ground in front of Hua Xin. &x201C;Is that enough?&x201D;
Hua Xin kept her cool and she did not say anything at all when Wen Tong threw the check at her face.
When Wen Tong saw that there was no reaction from Hua Xin, she wrote another cheque for another one million yuan before she threw it at Hua Xin again. &x201C;You want more?&x201D;
This time, tears started flowing down Hua Xin&x2019;s face. No one on earth would be able to endure this kind of humiliation.
&x201C;Enough! Stop it! I promise you that I will leave Gao Mengjin immediately.&x201D;
&x201C;Hua Xin, I did not call you to come over here today to hear your promise. Do you think that your words or promise is worth anything to me at all? The reason why I called you here today is simply to teach you a lesson so you will finally learn that you cannot afford to offend just anyone so casually,&x201D; Wen Tong said as she continued giving hints to Hua Xin. &x201C;You must have thought that the person you had offended and was trying to deal with was nothing more than a small artiste in the entertainment industry. Hua Xin, I had never expected you to be this dense.&x201D;
&x201C;I don&x2019;t really care if you want to leave Gao Mengjin or otherwise, but you should not mess around with little Yuning anymore. Do you understand? Even I cannot afford to offend her&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;You should really get to know the Jiang Yuning who is standing before you now because she has another identity&x2026;&x201D;
At this time, the butler suddenly interrupted Wen Tong before she could complete her sentence.
&x201C;Young Mistress, Mrs. Lu. Mr. Lu Jingzhi has just sent Mrs. Lu&x2019;s cell phone over.&x201D;
&x201C;Give it to me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she walked over to the butler. She had forgotten to bring her cell phone along with her as she was in a rush this morning.
&x201C;Mrs. Lu? Lu Jingzhi?&x201D; Hua Xin&x2019;s face twitched as soon as she heard the butler&x2019;s words. She did not know how to respond to the sudden information and she leaned back uncontrollably. &x201C;This&x2026;how is this even possible? The Lu family has never made any public announcement about&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I did not want to publicize anything. So, is that the reason why you have been bullying me and trying to set me up all the time?&x201D; At this time, Jiang Yuning could not help but question Hua Xin directly.
