her.”

Wen Yan remained unimpressed, “Can you really protect her?”

Song Yan's tone was relaxed, “Compared to you as her uncle, at least I managed to do it two years ago.
What's so difficult about it?”

The words of both men were filled with subtle sarcasm.
Wen Yan was infuriated but chortled, feeling that this son-in-law was indeed different from before.

At least ten years ago, when he asked Song Yan what leverage he had to make the Wen family break their agreement with Bai Sen's parents and hand Wen Li over to him, this Young Master Song couldn't even utter a single word.

Having been pampered for over a decade, this Young Master Song, deprived of the protection of his parents, may wear a cold, stubborn expression, eyes filled with gloom and discontent.
However, in Wen Yan's view, he is utterly worthless.

——

Wen Li, who was washing her hands in front of the sink, had no idea about the situation inside the private room.

She hadn't intended to let Song Yan face her uncle alone, but life is full of unexpected surprises, including bumping into Zheng Xue in the restroom.

“Why haven't you left yet?” Zheng Xue was also surprised when she saw Wen Li, and she asked with an unfriendly tone.

Wen Li continued to wash her hands calmly, “You haven't left either, have you?”

Zheng Xue pursed her lips, her expression becoming even more gloomy.
After holding back for a while, she couldn't hold it anymore and stepped forward, grabbing Wen Li's wrist tightly, “Did you arrange to meet with my husband on the second floor?”

Wen Li was bewildered and pushed her away directly.

Zheng Xue staggered back a few steps, clutching her long evening gown, “If you want to fight, let's schedule it for another day.
I can't move around conveniently in this outfit, so stay away from me.”

Wen Li frowned in disgust and wiped her own arm with a tissue.

“Wen Li, although I don't like you, I admit that you're better than me.
Your personality attracts more fans, and you're beautiful.
Despite our competition for resources in the past, it was all work-related,” Zheng Xue said with a slightly emotional tone.

Wen Li looked at Zheng Xue as if she had seen a ghost.
She didn't expect to hear affirmation from her archenemy one day.
Puzzled, she asked, “Who possessed you?”

“Listen to me!” Zheng Xue took a deep breath, clenching her jaw.
“Our teams have always competed openly and secretly, which is normal within the industry.
But you shouldn't have any connection with my husband.
We've been together since our school days, and after years of secretly dating, I thought we would be able to go public when the time was right.
Just because you collaborated with him on a drama two years ago, after a few months of working together, he started to neglect me.
Seriously, Wen Li, ask yourself, how shameless can you be as a third party?”

Wen Li also took a deep breath and spoke coldly, “Let me make it clear one last time.
My collaboration with Lu Ming during that time was purely professional.
In the beginning, I had my manager ask him if he was single.
He clearly told my manager that he was single.”

Zheng Xue immediately refuted, “That's impossible!”

“Bullshit!” Wen Li's tone was firm, “I told you clearly that your husband is trash.
He's a scumbag who acts friendly towards other women despite having a girlfriend.
He's a coward who shifts the blame onto women when something goes wrong.”


Zheng Xue laughed twice, “Alright, you claim you're innocent.
Then why are you here?”

Wen Li was speechless, “Is there a problem with me being here? Did you reserve all the VIP rooms on the second floor?”

“I saw Lu Ming going upstairs just now and followed him up.
But instead, I saw you here.
Are you denying that you secretly arranged to meet him here?”

Wen Li suddenly furrowed her brows and walked straight out without saying a word.

Zheng Xue called after her from behind, “Where are you going?”

Wen Li ignored her and walked directly to one of the private rooms where she had an appointment with her uncle.

“Wait here.
If you leave, you won't get to see your husband,” she threatened.

For a moment, Zheng Xue was taken aback by Wen Li's threatening tone and remained motionless.

Wen Li pushed the door open and walked in.

As the door closed, Zheng Xue regained her senses.

Wen Li was on the second floor to find her own husband and that man?

So, she didn't come to the second floor because of Lu Ming?

Inside the private room, Wen Li paid no attention to Wen Yan's dissatisfied gaze and walked straight to him, with an arrogant attitude, “I know you have a way to get the keys to all the private rooms on the second floor.
Get them for me.”

Wen Yan frowned, his voice turning cold as ice, “Wen Li, do you know who you're talking to?”

“Uncle,” Wen Li took a deep breath, “Your niece urgently needs the keys to the private rooms to prove that I didn't come to meet someone here.
Can you do me this favor?”

Upon hearing these words, Wen Yan's brow furrowed even tighter, “Who called you a third party?”

“Can you wait until I resolve this matter before asking?” Wen Li sounded impatient, “Usually, you seem so capable, but why do you crumble in critical moments?”

Song Yan, who had been silent all along, suddenly laughed.

Wen Yan's face darkened.
First, he glared at Song Yan, then reprimanded Wen Li, “Wen Li! I am your uncle! Tone down your attitude!”

Song Yan asked softly, “What do you want to do with the keys to the private rooms?”

Wen Li replied, “To catch an adulterer.”

“…”

“…”


When Wen Li emerged from the private room, Zheng Xue had already grown impatient outside.

Wen Li was quite surprised that Zheng Xue actually listened to her and stayed put.

“It seems like you truly love your husband.”

Zheng Xue's face turned sour, gritting her teeth, “What the fuck does it have to do with you? What exactly are you up to?”

See, this is why you shouldn't believe in the public image of female celebrities.

Even someone like Zheng Xue, who portrays an elegant and ethereal image, can curse like a sailor.

Wen Li directly took her uncle's words of authority to the duty room and obtained a stack of room keycards from the staff.

She went into three private rooms consecutively but found nothing.
It wasn't until she entered the fourth room that she noticed the outer room was dark with no lights on.
However, a dim light was emanating from the restroom.

Upon hearing the commotion from the restroom, Wen Li couldn't decide whether to pity or ridicule Zheng Xue.

Inside the private room, the female celebrity nicknamed 'Little Wen Li' was giggling and asking Zheng Xue's husband whether he liked Zheng Xue more or Wen Li.

“Zheng Xue and I, we've been together for seven to eight years, since our school days,” Lu Ming said without hesitation.
But then he paused and teasingly sighed, “But I do like Wen Li as well.
During the time we were shipped as a couple, I dreamt about her every night.
Later, when she found out I had a girlfriend, she cut ties with me without any hesitation, which made me appreciate and like her even more.”

“Oh, so I'm Wen Li's substitute?” asked the celebrity nicknamed 'Little Wen Li'.

“Forget about being a substitute or not, stop asking those pointless questions and hurry up.
I need to leave,” Lu Ming urged.

“Who asked you to be so impatient that you couldn't wait to go to a hotel?”

“Are you stupid? This is a VIP room.
Reporters can't come to the second floor at all.
It's much safer than a hotel.”

Trembling, Zheng Xue cried silently, her voice tearing her heart apart.
Wen Li suppressed her nausea and calmly asked her in a hushed voice, “Is your phone on you?”

“…What are you planning to do?” Zheng Xue looked at Wen Li with teary eyes.

Wen Li rolled her eyes, “What do you think, you foolish woman?”

Trembling, Zheng Xue took out her phone from her small bag and handed it to Wen Li.
Suddenly, she grabbed Wen Li tightly and spoke with a pleading tone, “If you expose this, Lu Ming will be finished…”

“Shut up,” Wen Li pushed her away directly, “You're protecting a husband who has fallen out of love with you and is cheating on you, but you, you only target women.
Don't touch me.
It's my misfortune to share the same gender as you.
The only reason I'm helping you gather evidence was because this man disgusts me.
Don't infect me with your idiotic behavior in love.”

She had wanted to say these words for a long time and today she finally spoke them out.

Zheng Xue's face turned pale from the scolding, unwilling to back down, “You don't understand! If Song Yan were to cheat on you, you would be even more foolish than me!”

Wen Li chuckled coldly, her voice merciless, “If he dares cheat on me, I'll castrate him on the spot.
Don't think everyone is like you, cherishing and protecting a cheating scumbag as if he's a precious treasure.”
