Reborn Aristocrat: Return of the Vicious Heires - Chapter 1237
Chapter 1237: The Ugly and Terrifying Truth
Wen Xinya had exposed the true colors that Xia Ruya had been hiding beneath her pure and angelic facade. The ugly and horrifying truth about her personality made everyone judge her.
Although Xia Ruya had already had a bad reputation in Capital city prior to the gala, most of the controversy around her were just rumors. Everyone merely disliked Xia Ruya based on hearsay and simply did not bother about her.
However, the exposure of Xia Ruya’s evil and vicious personality gave everyone a great shock. These ladies from intellectual families had all been taught to have good morals, conduct, and etiquette ever since a young age. Although they would sometimes pull petty tricks too, they would never be as vicious as Xia Ruya as to poison others.
Xia Ruya had given everyone a whole new insight to what she really was like.
“So much for believing Xia Ruya’s explanation and thinking that she is really innocent. I didn’t expect that she’d actually be so wicked. Fortunately, Miss Wen managed to expose her true colors in front of everyone else. Otherwise, we would all have been fooled by her. I shall see what else she has to say now.”
“That’s understandable. No one would have thought that she would have the guts to poison someone since she’s still so young. When I heard her explanation just now, I thought she was innocent too. I even thought that Lin Yingxin was the one who had framed her.”
“Controversial rumors about her went around in the city previously, but I always thought that the truth is hard to tell since the Wen Family is so complicated. Miss Wen does deserve sympathy for having had to fend for herself for fifteen years, but I thought that Xia Ruya was just as pitiful for having been reduced to an illegitimate daughter and losing all of the glory that she used to have. Yet, she turned out to be such a vicious person. She really does deserve to be hated even though she’s pitiful in some way.”
“Ever since the past, I could tell that she was a troublemaker. Look what she did in the past. There were erotic photos of her and she even released her virginity test report and showed her hymen to everyone else. All of her scandals are atrociously disgraceful. Trust her to still have the cheek to roam around the city shamelessly.”
While listening to the remarks about her, Xia Ruya scanned her surroundings like a vulnerable and pitiful rabbit that had just been frightened. She was still hoping that someone could help her and save her from this humiliating predicament.
Oh right, I still have the owner of Boya Pavilion!
She’ll definitely help me.
Xia Ruya saw a glimmer of hope and quickly glanced at the owner pitifully, her eyes full of hope.
To her surprise, the owner ignored her plea for help, as if she did not notice her gaze at all.
She was instantly disappointed.
Hah, how silly of me. Everyone kicks a man who is down. It has always been that way and I’ve already understood that long ago. Why did I still hope that someone would save me?
She then turned to look at Lin Yingxin.
Wen Xinya is right. The only person who can prove my innocence is Lin Yingxin. If Lin Yingxin announces to everyone that whatever she said just now isn’t true, I’ll be able to prove that I have been maligned. No one will be able to accuse me then.
“Senior Lin!” Xia Ruya rushed towards Lin Qingxin agitatedly and grabbed her hand as if she had found a straw to clutch at for dear life.
Unfortunately for her, Lin Yingxin had been shell shocked and dumbfounded ever since she got pulled away from Xia Ruya after losing control of her emotions. Regardless of the chaos, she seemed to be unaware of what was going on around her and it was as if her soul had left her body.
Hence, she ignored Xia Ruya’s “emotional” cry.
Xia Ruya burst into tears agitatedly and refused to let go of Lin Yingxin’s hand. “Senior Lin, I didn’t poison anyone. Why do you have to accuse me in front of everyone else? Just how did I offend you?”
Xia Ruya looked extremely worked up and her pale face had also turned red, making her emotions seem obvious.
However, Lin Yingxin simply stared at her blankly with a straight face and her eyes glassed over. She was also chuckling coldly with sarcasm.
Her laughter felt sinister and hair-raising. It even sent a cold chill down Xia Ruya’s spine. However, she was bent on proving her innocence and hence, tightened her grip on Lin Yingxin’s hand. “Senior Lin, say something. Why do you have to harm me? Why…”
Xia Ruya seemed to have also lost control fo her emotions. She began to grab Lin Yingxin’s shoulders and shook her violently while yelling, “Say something! Tell everyone that you were just spouting nonsense just now and that what you said wasn’t true! Say something…”
Despite being rocked back and forth violently by Xia Ruya, Lin Yingxin did not move at all. It was as if she had lost her soul.
“Miss Xia, please don’t behave this way!” exclaimed one of the waitresses, who pushed Xia Ruya away in a bid to stop her from shaking Lin Yingxin.
Xia Ruya staggered backward and thumped herself onto the ground, appearing menacing and pathetic. Her hair and clothes were all messy and unkempt, worlds apart from her elegant and noble appearance when she was brewing floral tea.
The fire within Xia Ruya’s heart began to diminish gradually. She bawled and screeched. “Lin Yingxin, aren’t you afraid of being struck by lightning and receiving your retribution for harming me like this?”
Xia Ruya sprawled herself across the ground and began weeping uncontrollably in despair. “I didn’t poison anyone. I didn’t. I have been maligned. It wasn’t me… please believe me…”
Wen Xinya sneered and thought to herself, Xia Ruya still hasn’t given up even when things have already come to this. It’s such a pity that no one is giving her sympathy for behaving vulnerably and showing her feelings of grief and agony.
Well, because it’s too late now.
It’s already too late for her to confront Lin Yingxin now because she’s already known to all as the culprit of the poisoning. Whatever she does now is useless. It’ll only let everyone see clearly what she’s like and what her true colors are.
Xia Ruya’s actions had proved to everyone that she did not deserve sympathy because she was detestable too.
If Xia Ruya didn’t try to harm others, she might have been able to salvage her reputation using her skills in brewing floral tea and the compliments of the owner of Boya Pavilion.
Yet, she still tried to harm me.
Actually, Xia Ruya’s plan wouldn’t have worked out even if I really got poisoned by the jimsonweed. Xia Ruya has belittled me. I was a drug addict in my previous lifetime. Of course I can take the effects.
I would at most perform poorly during the talent showdown and lose to Lin Yingxin. It’d be impossible for me to lose control of my emotions and behave manically like Lin Yingxin just because of the jimsonweed.
