Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heires - Chapter 1236
Chapter 1236: You’re Still Thinking of Plotting Against Others Even at This Juncture
At this moment, everyone was shocked speechless by Wen Xinya’s actions. They had never expected Wen Xinya to do that and not spare Xia Ruya from any embarrassment.
Ye Feiyua was filled with joy and thought to herself, I knew it. Xinya would never let herself be taken advantage of.
Du Ruoxin stared at Wen Xinya and thought, This woman may be a little silly, but I like what she did. Interesting!
The owner of Boya Pavilion had no idea if she should stop Wen Xinya or not, for she was afraid that she might end up getting implicated again.
Xia Ruya was overwhelmed by the excruciating pain of her wounds which had begun bleeding again because of the alcohol. Xia Ruya felt incredibly ashamed and she could even hear the sounds of everyone else snickering at her.
Xia Ruya was covered by waves of resentment and feelings of humiliation.
Wen Xinya snorted with laughter and sneered. “You’re still trying to set me up even at this juncture. Do you really think I’d be so silly as to let you make yourself seem like the innocent party?”
Wen Xinya was direct and straightforward with her words. Everyone was confused by what she had said and did not quite understand what she meant. However, some quick-witted ones had already got what she meant. They then looked at Xia Ruya in disdain.
Xia Ruya shook her head pathetically and spluttered. “Wen Xinya, don’t accuse me. That’s not what I meant. I really just wanted to express the fact that I did not harm you.”
Wen Xinya laughed sarcastically and stared at Xia Ruya condescendingly. “Are you silly or am I just a fool? If you didn’t choose to be a smart aleck, you might have really just managed to shirk the responsibility and clear your name. Yet… some people just like to think that they’re so smart and treat others like fools whom she can manipulate.”
Xia Ruya thought that she was smart but ended up harming herself instead. There were plenty of intelligent people in this world and Xia Ruya was not one of them. She laid a trap for Wen Xinya and thought that she could perhaps make herself seem like the innocent party. Even if she could not push the blame to someone else completely, she thought that she would at least not be accused of harming others.
Xia Ruya stared at Wen Xinya in bewilderment and shook her head frantically. “Wen Xinya, please pardon my ignorance but I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never tried to poison you at all, regardless of whether you believe me or not.”
At this moment, Xia Ruya was actually not as calm as she seemed to be on the surface. Wen Xinya’s words were like a million daggers being pierced through her heart forcefully. She could not help but regret trying to set Wen Xinya up just so she could make herself seem like the innocent party.
She thought that she would no longer have to face the sly Wen Xinya even if she could not stop everyone else from suspecting that she had poisoned Wen Xinya. At this point, she could vaguely sense that everyone was staring at her in disdain. She knew that she was in hot soup.
Wen Xinya said coldly, “You don’t get it? Seems like you’re all muddled up, Miss Xia. It’s alright, I’ll help you become more clearheaded.”
She then glanced at the waitress beside her.
Xia Ruya seemed to have been greatly agitated. She screamed and hollered. “Wen Xinya, I already said that I didn’t poison you. Why do you have to insult and humiliate me like this?”
Wen Xinya sneered. “I’ve long told you before. In order for others to humiliate you, you would first have to do something that humiliates yourself.”
Xia Ruya glowered at her angrily, no longer able to control her emotions.
Wen Xinya sneered. “Xia Ruya, do you think that you can fool others into thinking that what you said is the truth? Do you think that you can deceive everyone just because your acting skills are good?” She then grabbed her face and continued, “Look around you and see how everyone’s staring at you. Interesting, isn’t it?”
Xia Ruya was dumbfounded. She could not understand why no one was stopping Wen Xinya from humiliating her. Neither could she understand why they were all staring at her with disdain and sympathy in a gloating manner.
What wrong have I done?
Wen Xinya asked in a gentler voice, “Are you confused as to why everyone is staring at you in such a manner?” She gently moved away and said coldly, “It’s because I have the guts to splash red wine on the person who set me up and take revenge openly, unlike you.”
Xia Ruya still did not understand what Wen Xinya meant.
“If you’ve really been accused and maligned, shouldn’t you be confronting the person who has accused you? Why did you keep dragging me into the matter when I wasn’t even related to it? If I were you, I would have rushed towards Lin Yingxin and given her two tight slaps before confronting her again.
“You outargued Lin Yingxin and pointed out the fact that she did not have any evidence, just so you can prove that she was accusing you. By doing that, you’re making it impossible for others to put the blame on you or suspect you. They might even see you as the victim.
“However, you got me involved and began explaining to me and trying to make me believe that you didn’t poison anyone. Let me ask you, what does Lin Yingxin’s accusation of you have anything to do with me? Was I the one who instigated her to frame you?
“Do you know why you’re behaving like this? You’re actually just doing this because you have a guilty conscience. You don’t dare to confront Lin Yingxin at all. That’s why you think that you can escape just by arguing with me and making me believe you. Even if I don’t, I won’t have any evidence against you.
“Do you know what this behavior is called? It’s called revealing the intentions that you’re trying to hide. In this world, no everyone is a fool. Do you really think you can fool everyone with those petty tricks of yours? Maybe you can fool some, but you definitely can’t deceive every single one of us. After giving what you did some thought, everyone will slowly understand the truth.”
Xia Ruya retreated backward as she finally understood what Wen Xinya meant. At this point, Wen Xinya had already made her out to be the culprit and there was no way she could clear her name anymore. She initially planned to use the gala to lay a trap for Wen Xinya, but she did not expect there to be such an outcome.
“Xia Ruya, before you plotted against me, did you never once consider if I’d be silly enough to fall into your trap and let you achieve your goals? Have you never thought about it at all? Have you never wondered what you’d be facing from me if your plan were to fail? It’s not good to underestimate your opponent.”
Wen Xinya pursed her rosy lips and exclaimed, “You totally deserve what you got!”
She had brought it all upon herself, and hence was asking for it.
