Noble Wife Wants No Love - Chapter 86.2
Fortunately, there were no other cars on the road at this time of night and Xu Xinyi had not been hurt at all. But the front of her car was so damaged that she couldn’t drive it anymore.
The first thing she did was call Yi Yang.
“Honey, I crashed my car.”
Xu Xinyi’s voice was a bit weak.
On the other end of the phone, when he heard Xu Xinyi say she crashed her car, Yi Yang’s heart froze.
“Are you hurt?”
“I’m not hurt.”
Xu Xinyi heard the person on the other end of the phone breathe an obvious sigh of relief so she quickly went on to tell him where she was.
“Wait for me. I’ll be right there.”
Less than ten minutes later, Yi Yang arrived in his car. Behind him were some other cars filled with people he brought along to take care of the aftermath.
As soon as he arrived, Yi Yang rushed out of his car and carefully checked Xu Xinyi from head to toe. After he saw that she really wasn’t hurt, his grim face loosened a little bit and he looked a little better.
“Get in my car first. They’ll take care of things here.”
Xu Xinyi obediently followed him and got into his car and the two drove home.
Along the way, Yi Yang’s face was dark and gloomy, and his brows furrowed sharply.
“Tell me, what happened?”
“I just… rushed a little. I didn’t notice that there was a car at the fork in front of me and I just stepped on the accelerator.”
“You ‘just’ stepped on the accelerator?” Yi Yang looked at her stormily. “Xu Xinyi, do you know that you were in a car wreck just now? Do you think that’s a small thing? Did you see what happened to the front of your car? You’re lucky that you didn’t get hurt but what if you did? What if you got hurt?”
–“Why do I have to say these things at a time like this!? How infuriating!”
When Xu Xinyi heard what Yi Yang was thinking. She thought about it carefully, sized up the situation, and apologized, “Sorry, I said the wrong thing. I was too careless just now. I won’t let myself be in such a hurry that I lose sight of the road in the future.”
“There’s no ‘in the future’,” said Yi Yang. “I’ll have a driver send you wherever you need to go when I’m not around.”
Xu Xinyi was stunned for a moment. When she finally reacted she spoke in a loud voice, “What do you mean by that? You won’t let me drive? I’ve been driving for so many years and I’ve only ever been negligent once! I’m a good driver, I don’t need someone else to drive me!”
“No, I don’t!”
–“How dare you say that you are a good driver when you crash your car like that? How infuriating!”
–“No! She’s not allowed to drive again for at least six months.”
Xu Xinyi glared at Yi Yang, not wanting to give in.
Yi Yang, however, just ignored her and drove silently without even looking at her.
The place where the accident happened was not far from the Yi estate so the two were home in less than ten minutes. The two elders were waiting for them anxiously downstairs in the living room. As soon as the couple walked inside, they hurriedly rushed over to Xu Xinyi and asked, “Are you all right? Yi Yang said you were in a car crash? Are you hurt?”
“Grandpa, mom, it’s okay. I’m not hurt.”
They both sighed in relief.
“You child, why are you so careless? Thankfully, you didn’t hurt yourself. Be more careful next time.”
At the same time, Yi Yang went straight upstairs without saying anything. Xu Xinyi called out behind him but he didn’t respond.
When they saw Xu Xinyi’s frustrated face, Old Master Yi and Mrs. Yi exchanged glances.
“You, ah~, you were so reckless. Do you know how frightened Yi Yang was when he received your phone call? He was in such a hurry to go out and make sure you were okay that he didn’t even change his shoes.”
When they mentioned it, Xu Xinyi noticed that Yi Yang really had been wearing his indoor shoes when he came to get her.
Some of her displeasure with Yi Yang suddenly evaporated and what was left was just some inexplicable guilt.
“I’m sorry to have worried you, grandpa, mom.”
“We’re just glad that you’re alright. You should go up and see Yi Yang first.”
Xu Xinyi nodded and went upstairs to the study.
At the door of the study, Xu Xinyi smiled and called out, “Husband…”
“I’ll only say two things. First, whenever you go out in the future, find me or a driver, you’re not allowed to drive anymore. Second, go back to the room and go to sleep for now. I’m very angry at the moment, I’ll come to bed with you later.”
Xu Xinyi’s words froze in her throat as she felt the low pressure Yi Yang was emitting. Eventually, she gave up and turned and went back to their room to go to sleep.
Around one o’clock in the morning, Xu Xinyi looked like she was asleep on her side of the bed but, when Yi Yang lay down, her hands suddenly reached out and hugged him.
The lights suddenly flicked on.
Xu Xinyi rested her head on his neck near his ear and looked at him. He could see the apology in her clear and bright eyes. “Are you still angry?” She murmured.
–“…forget it. It’s fine.”
But his mouth said: “Angry.”
Xu Xinyi smiled and hugged him tighter, “Don’t be angry, I will take driving more seriously in the future.”
“In the future?”
“Ah, there is no future.” Xu Xinyi coaxed him, “When I go out I’ll always take a driver.”
They could just talk about it later. Once a few days went by, Xu Xinyi didn’t believe that Yi Yang would still remember this conversation. And even if he did, so what? It wasn’t like Yi Yang could keep an eye on her 24 hours a day to stop her from driving.
There would always be an opportunity.
But in the end, because of this matter, Xu Xinyi would use a driver when she went out for a long time afterward. In truth, it was very uncomfortable for her to always have a driver with her because it felt like there was always someone watching her wherever she went out.
But she knew in her heart that Yi Yang was only worried about her and he was only thinking for her own good, so she put up with it.
Then, after putting up with it for a while, one day she noticed that Anya had started driving a beautiful and stylish silver-gray sports car.
“Anya, you… a sports car?”
Anya stepped out of the sports car handsomely, took off her sunglasses, and said with a smile, “What do you think?”
“It’s beautiful! So handsome!”
“Haha, isn’t it? I was on a waiting list for a whole year before I could buy this car so, of course it’s beautiful. Do you want to get in?”
Xu Xinyi nodded hurriedly.
There were actually millions of luxury cars parked in the garages of the Yi estate and Lanting. Xu Xinyi herself even had more than a few cars in her own name, but she didn’t have any sports cars.
They drove along a highway that was built alongside the river and Xu Xinyi’s hair flew wildly behind her. She looked out at the blue sky and the blue sea, taking in the boundless horizon, and the excitement made her want to shout with joy.
After Xu Xinyi experienced the thrill of a sports car, she quickly went back to count the money in her accounts. She saw that what she had on hand was more than enough to buy a sports car or two so, because she had never been the type of person who would wrong herself, she began browsing all kinds of sports cars that very day before finally settling on a red Ferrari.
It had smooth lines and beautiful colors and Xu Xinyi knew at first sight that this sports car had been made for her.
However, there was a limit to how many units of this car were sold globally.
And the quantity set aside to be sold domestically was very small.
Plus, there were conditions to be able to purchase it. You had to either already be the owner of a Ferrari or be a member of a Ferrari club.
Of course, Xu Xinyi did not meet any of these conditions.
Anya politely reminded her that in certain cases connections could help make things happen.
Xu Xinyi thought about it for a moment, but she didn’t seem to have any connections in this area?
“Your husband probably does.” Anya said.
That single sentence seemed to wake Xu Xinyi from her dream. Her eyes turned focused.
Xu Xinyi hurriedly went home that day and began to pay serious attention. Belts, ties, watches, cufflinks, and other similar gifts were placed in front of Yi Yang one after another.
Yi Yang saw all this and became very alert.
–“Suddenly so nice for no reason, she can’t have good intentions.”
Although she had been seen through immediately by Yi Yang, Xu Xinyi didn’t blush or flinch back at all. “Today I was out shopping and I happened to see these. I thought they suited you so I especially bought them for you, rest assured, they were very expensive.”
In order to show Yi Yang the value of these gifts, Xu Xinyi handed him the receipt.
Yi Yang took a look and saw that they were indeed very expensive.
“Is something the matter?”
Xu Xinyi thought for a moment before she carefully opened her mouth. “It’s nothing much. I just wanted to say that I’ve been taking the driver out for a long time already… I did the math and it’s been almost half a year…”
“You can start driving again if you want. Just drive a little more carefully.”
Xu Xinyi put on a very moved expression and said, “Husband, you are so sweet!”
“Was there anything else?”
Xu Xinyi had a plastic smile: “There’s also… one small thing.”
Yi Yang looked at Xu Xinyi’s expression and said slowly, “It doesn’t look like it’s a trivial matter.”
“I just want to buy something.”
“You don’t have enough money?”
“I have enough money!” Xu Xinyi stressed that although the price of the car was in the eight figures, she could still afford it. It was just that she had no method to buy it, so she couldn’t buy it. “It’s just that I can’t buy it myself so, husband, will you help me?”
“What is it you want to buy?”
“…promise me first.”
“How can I promise you if you don’t tell me what it is?”
“It’s just a little thing, for you it should be a matter of saying a few words.”
Yi Yang narrowed his eyes slightly and examined Xu Xinyi.
–“Her attitude is all wrong. If she keeps being so ambiguous, there must be something wrong with it.”
Xu Xinyi: “…”
Eventually she caved and quickly said, “It’s just that I want to buy a car.”
“Do we not have enough cars at home?”
“No, it’s just that I took a fancy to a certain car, but there are conditions for the purchase. Husband, you’re so well-informed and well-connected, can’t you ask around for me?”
He had just let her start driving again and now she suddenly wanted to buy a car. Yi Yang was really a little worried.
–“Forget it. She is a mother now, she probably isn’t as reckless as she used to be.”
“What kind of car?”
When she saw Yi Yang relaxing his stance, Xu Xinyi smiled and said, “A Ferrari.”
“…” It turned out to be a sports car! Yi Yang instantly reversed his decision, “Xu Xinyi, you want to drive a sports car not long after being in a car wreck? Don’t even think about it! “
“Didn’t you promise to always help me?”
“I didn’t promise you a sports car!”
“I didn’t ask you to buy it, I’ll buy it myself! I can pay for it myself!”
“Then buy it yourself, don’t involve me!”
Xu Xinyi ground her teeth, “Will you help me buy it or not?”
Yi Yang’s reply was clean and decisive, “Won’t help.”
“You really won’t help me?”
–“Don’t you dare do such a dangerous thing like car racing! How infuriating!”
Seeing that Yi Yang was getting angry, Xu Xinyi quickly sized up the situation and softened her temper. “But husband, I really like this sports car. And I promise that I will drive carefully, I won’t do any racing, and there will be no accidents.”
Yi Yang didn’t believe a word of Xu Xinyi’s nonsense.
“Husband, it’s true! Besides, you know that I’m usually very busy with work. I barely have time to drive whem I’m working with a crew, and if I’m not on a crew then I’m rushing around trying to make it on time to one appointment or another, so I really don’t have a chance to drive much. So how…?”
“Then why do you want to buy it?”
Xu Xinyi’s litany of excuses were blocked by a single sentence.
Xu Xinyi was getting exasperated, this dog man’s ability to pick and nag at every little thing seemed to be becoming more and more powerful!
So she just blurted. “I’ll buy it and put it in the garage to look at. As long as it’s mine, I’ll be happy!”
Yi Yang watched at her calmly.
–“Those are some nice words, but will you really not drive it around after you buy it? I don’t believe that.”
Xu Xinyi: “…if you won’t help me, then don’t help me!”
Xu Xinyi left the room very forcefully.
Was he kidding with her? There were so many sports cars in the world, it’s not like that was the only one. Couldn’t she just buy a different car?
What’s more, Xu Xinyi was already a woman who had a firm foothold in the entertainment industry, okay?
She didn’t believe that she didn’t have any connections!
However, that night, Xu Xinyi searched through all the people she knew and, except for a few people who she really couldn’t contact, there was no one who could help her.
Look for Anya?
…Anya had been one a waiting list to buy her sports car for a year.
At the end of the day, it seemed that Yi Yang was the most reliable one.
Unfortunately, the most reliable person didn’t want to help her.
Unable to find anyone who could help her, Xu Xinyi silently sat on one corner of the sofa.
As soon as Yi Yang returned to their room that was what he saw. Xu Xinyi was curled up on the corner of the sofa and, when she heard him coming back, she looked up at him with an aggrieved and pitiful face.
“Yi Yang, you don’t love me anymore.”
“…” Yi Yang didn’t want to talk to her.
“Honey, I feel so sick and sad. I want to cry.”
Xu Xinyi thought to herself: Yi Yang always comes to comfort her, right? Then the two of them could hug each other affectionately, say a few words of love, this would lead to that, and then she could make Yi Yang promise, right?
But who knew, this time, Yi Yang opened his mouth and said: “If you want to cry, then cry.”
Yi Yang, this dog man, just listen to him! Was he speaking human words?
“…but I want to cry in a Ferrari!”
Regarding the matter of the sports car, Yi Yang did not relent. Xu Xinyi’s car crash incident was still a lingering fear in his heart but, unexpectedly, she suddenly wanted to drive a sports car? He would never have promised her if he had known she wanted something that would make him worry every day.
The things a person couldn’t get were always the things that seemed the best. So, after two consecutive days of facing Yi Yang’s stormy face, Xu Xinyi fixed her eyes on their baby with an innocent face.
“They say that you raise a baby for a thousand days and then the baby will take care of you for a lifetime. Baby, mommy is putting all her hope on you.”
The baby saw that his mommy had come over and waved two chubby little hands at her with a smile on his face. He had no idea what was going on under his kind-hearted mother’s smile.
