I Want a Lifetime with You Chapter 121

“Isn’t that obvious? The prettiest girl in our school? Do we still need to vote for that?”

No one knew who said that in the crowds, but everyone went along with it. “That’s right! Shi Wei is a superstar now, everybody knows her. Rumor has it that it’s hard to meet with her!”

Someone else chimed in, “That’s true. When my distant cousin heard that Shi Wei was my classmate, she even had me get an autographed photo from Shi Wei. Do you think Shi Wei will come today?”

Song Rongrong nudged Shi Nuan and sighed. “Shi Wei is really doing well now,” she commented, “Look at them! Many of them used to admire you back then, but now they’re all pursuing Shi Wei.

Shi Nuan curled her lips, looked at Song Rongrong and said, “Are you having fun?”

“Shi Wei is here!”

Sure enough, everyone focused on the entrance of the hall. All of them had their eyes on Shi Wei when she walked in with Anna and Su Su in tow. “Isn’t this our superstar? We thought you wouldn’t be able to make it today!”

“How could I? The class president personally called to invite me. I wouldn’t miss this for the world!” Shi Wei was perfectly poised, beautiful, and elegant. Despite her curt response, the crowd started to approach her and flattered her, showering her with compliments.

Liu Min had been greeting other guests like the social butterfly that she was, but she immediately excused herself and walked towards Shi Wei when she saw her. “Hey, old friend, thanks for coming!” Liu Min gave Shi Wei a big hug as she said that.

Shi Wei was unhappy, but her emotions were well hidden. She acted as if she was delighted, “It’s been a while, president.”

“Yes, it’s been quite a long time. I called you earlier, I was worried that you weren’t going to make it. Why did you come alone?” Liu Min asked while she looked Shi Wei up and down.

“Hello, president, are we invisible to you?” Anna, who was standing by Shi Wei, felt offended. Liu Min smiled awkwardly, “That’s not what I meant. I heard that you were engaged so I thought you were going to bring your loved one with you.”

“I see, you were referring to him. It’s still too soon,” Shi Wei smiled, looking blissfully happy. Her eyes scanned the room as she spoke, finally settling on Shi Nuan and Song Rongrong, who were standing in the corner. The corners of her eyes curled upwards.

“Speaking of which, I came to deliver the invitation cards. My fiancé, Fu Xicheng and I are getting married on the 3rd of next month. I hope you are kind enough to attend,” Shi Wei spoke to the crowd as she took the invitation cards from her bag and handed them to everyone around.

“Fu Xicheng? Is he from the Fu family?”

When Fu family was mentioned, they hurriedly opened the invitations. Seeing Fu Xicheng’s name embossed on the glossy card, they expressed their gratitude and emphasized on what an honor it was to be able to attend their wedding.

Shi Wei squinted her eyes, but she did not deny. Instead, she walked towards Shi Nuan and Song Rongrong with the invitations. “Nuan, fancy seeing you here too!” Shi Wei greeted.

Shi Nuan responded with a smile, but she could the provocation in Shi Wei’s eyes. She raised her eyebrows and curled her lips, “I came because I’m just an average person. It’s what normal people do – we attend reunions. On the contrary, the presence of a busy superstar like you at the reunion is a rare sight.”

Shi Wei’s expression had frozen over at Shi Nuan’s words. She immediately took a deep breath and chuckled, “What are you talking about? We were classmates, of course I would show up. It’s been a few years since we last met, after all. Rongrong and Yian, you girls are getting prettier.” Shi Wei spoke as she glanced at Song Rongrong and Su Yian. She took out three more invitations and handed it to them. “I am getting married on the 3rd of next month, and it’ll mean a lot to me if you could come. Especially you, Nuan, my beloved sister.”

Song Rongrong could not take it anymore. She glared at Shi Wei fiercely and was about to speak when Shi Nuan plucked the card from Shi Wei’s fingers. She opened it up and glanced at it. “The 3rd of next month, it is a good day indeed. Anyhow, we are sisters. Of course, I will be there for your wedding,” Shi Nuan agreed as she closed the invitation.

Shi Nuan was calm and gracious, one could not tell she was hurt at all. This took Shi Wei by surprise.

She thought Shi Nuan would show some disappointment. Did she underestimate Shi Nuan? Or was her sister pretending to be calm?

Shi Wei stared at Shi Nuan, trying to read her expression, but she was disappointed when she failed to find the devastated look she was hoping for.

From the moment Shi Nuan got her hands on the invitation, she acted perfectly normal.

“I will be thrilled with your presence. We are sisters, and things between you and Xicheng… You and Xicheng used to be friends. We are getting married, you are going to be happy for me, right?” Shi Wei said as she bit her lips. She was victim playing.

Shi Nuan curved her lips, humor glinting in her eyes as she looked at her sister. She was not as sad as Shi Wei had expected. She levelled a stare at Shi Wei. She wanted to sit back and watch Shi Wei put on her show, but her sister’s acting left much to be desired.

There were a lot of people attending the reunion. Shi Wei was a huge celebrity, so her presence alone captured their interest. Naturally, their gazes riveted on her as they observed her every move. Now the crowd had noticed Shi Nuan. After they had witnessed the interaction between the two sisters, they just looked at each other.

Shi Wei’s facial expression looked a bit stiff. She felt like she had been throwing punches at a pile of cotton – she felt spent, but none of her hits had made an impact. Shi Wei gnawed on her bottom lip, “Nuan, are you still angry with me?”

“Why would I be? It’s not like you betrayed me. On the contrary, I want to congratulate you, dear sister. You are doing well in both your career and relationship,” Shi Nuan played it by ear.

“Of course,” Shi Wei said, looking awkward. She then signaled Anna and Su Su with her eyes. Anna immediately stepped forward, “Our Wei deserves the best in both her career and relationship. You probably haven’t heard, but Wei had just signed a contract with Xinhuang Entertainment, which belongs to Shengyuan.”

Murmurs of spread through the crowd as they discussed this new piece of information. “Xinhuang Entertainment? That’s a huge company. Rumor has it that Xinhuang Entertainment’s main focus is Qin Muchu. She is at the top of her career ladder because of Xinhuang. She leads among the A-list celebrities. Shi Wei, you are indeed very impressive.”

“That’s right. What is the last name of Xinhuang’s CEO? Fu?”

“Shi Wei’s husband also belongs to the Fu family!”

Shi Wei was satisfied with the response of the crowd and she basked in the limelight. She lifted her chin arrogantly and looked at Shi Nuan smugly, “Nuan, do you remember Mr. Fu? He came to our house for granddad’s birthday celebration. He is Xicheng’s uncle.”

Shi Nuan’s lifted the corners of her lips as she looked at Shi Wei’s complacent expression. Playing along, she asked, “Is he? Then the CEO of Shengyuan Group had just become your uncle.”

“Yes,” Shi Wei admitted and scanned the crowd shyly. Everyone who had been eavesdropping on their conversation gasped in amazement when they finally realized who had Shi Wei’s back.

Shi Nuan mimicked Fu Chengyan, her eyes darkening despite her calm exterior. She reacted differently from the others and simply raised an eyebrow. “Oh, my bad. I thought that your husband was the CEO of Shengyuan Group,” said Shi Nuan. She immediately noticed Shi Wei’s frozen smile when those words left her lips. However, Shi Wei was quick to collect herself and instantly smiled, “What are you talking about? Fu Chengyan from Shengyuan is Xicheng’s elder. That means he is your elder too. How could you say something like that?”

Shi Nuan chuckled, “Speaking of which, I have never heard of Fu Chengyan’s nephew.”

“You…” Shi Wei’s face became sullen and she glared at Shi Nuan fiercely. However, she quickly regained her composure when she remembered that they had an audience and said, “Nuan, you have never met Fu Chengyan. You don’t understand Fu clan well. How would you know about the complicated relationships in Fu clan?”

“Is that so?” Shi Nuan said ambiguously, neither denying nor acknowledging her sister’s claims.

Song Rongrong was standing right next to her, and her lips were twitched when she saw Shi Wei’s pathetic state. She leaned forward and whispered in Shi Nuan’s ear, “It looks like she’s still in the dark about your marriage with Fu Chengyan. If she finds out, will she regret bringing up Fu Chengyan today?”

Shi Nuan glanced at Song Rongrong out of the corner of her eyes, “What do you think?”

Song Rongrong shrugged and changed the subject. “But then again, I still can’t believe that Shi Wei managed to sign the contract with Xinhuang. I thought Xinhuang belongs to your husband?” Song Rongrong indicated that this was the main point of the lengthy conversation she heard.

Song Rongrong was a journalist, so gossiping was her nature.

All the information just now seemed irrelevant and harmless, but once scrutinized, one could tell the problem. “Why did your husband sign on Shi Wei? Theoretically, he should be helping you crush Shi Wei and make her suffer!”

Shi Wei had been notorious not that long ago, but in a matter of days, the internet was flooded with news about her marriage and were singing her praises. Shi Wei’s earlier scandals were covered instead.

This sudden turn of events had piqued Song Rongrong’s interest, as it was obvious to anyone that something strange was going on behind the scenes. Song Rongrong had spent more than enough time in the circles so she instantly made the connection, “Your husband is impressive!”

“What are you guys talking about?”

Su Yian was engaged in a conversation with a few other classmates. When she came back, she heard the discussion between Song Rongrong and Shi Nuan, so she sat down and joined in, “Nuan, do you know how impressive Shi Wei appears now? After everyone heard the conversation between the two of you, they think that Shi Wei has a very tight relationship with Fu Chengyan and Shengyuan. Need I remind you that Fu Chengyan is very highly regarded in Jiang City?”

As she recounted the conversation, Su Yian could not help but feel that Shi Wei was too scheming. While she was showing off, she used Shi Nuan to create a scene and indirectly spread the word. Now, the whole class – and possibly the whole school – thought that Shi Wei was related to Fu Chengyan.

Everyone buttered up Shi Wei in hopes that they would have the chance to meet Fu Chengyan one day, or even gain some perks from Shi Wei.

“But the truth is, you are Fu Chengyan’s wife!”

Shi Nuan took the fruit wine that Su Yian handed to her and sipped on it. It was rare to hear Su Yian grumbling and complaining. Shi Nuan was amused, “Are you taking up the cudgels for me?”

“What else could it be? I never thought Shi Wei would be this shameless!” Su Yian said with anger.

“She’s right though. She is indeed Xinhuang’s celebrity now. And according to seniority in the family, it’s true that Fu Chengyan is her uncle. So what are you upset about?” Nuan replied nonchalantly when she saw the displeasure on Su Yian’s face.

“You…” Su Yian sighed.
