Stealing Your Heart Chapter 365
Immediately, Lin Xinyan perused his biography.
Name: Li Zhan
English Name: Sean Xiao
Height: 180 CM
Weight: 56 KG
Li Zhan was born on October 5, 1992, in B City. He’s a professional actor and singer.
In 2015, he participated in Youth With You, an audition variety show. He was the champion of the show and had since debuted as a celebrity.
In March 2016, he took part in the production of a web drama – You Are My Destiny.
In 2017, Li Zhan rose to fame after playing the role of Han Tianyu; the character he played in the drama My Soulmate. On May 28, 2018, My Dearest – the drama Li Zhan had taken part in – was aired. It had garnered five hundred million views globally on the premiere. He had played the role of Yu Chengze; the male protagonist of the drama and won the public over.
Li Zhan has been acknowledged as the most influential male celebrity since he rose to fame due to My Dearest that had garnered fifteen billion views globally.
Lin Xinyan’s jaw dropped open when she figured out Li Zhan’s background. He wasn’t even thirty-year-old, yet he was, undeniably, the most influential male celebrity.
First impressions mattered. Lin Xinyan was impressed by Li Zhan and thought he fulfilled the criteria she had set forth.
Therefore, she made up her mind and decided to procure his service as the spokesperson for her brand new series of outfits.
She reached for her phone and called Guan Jing because she needed his aid to get the exact location of the agency Li Zhan was affiliated with.
Lin Xinyan would strike a deal with Li Zhan and his agency on her own.
On the other hand, Guan Jing had just reached Wen Qing’s department. He received a call out of the blue before he could hand the folder over to the latter as instructed.
As soon as he picked up the call, he heard a woman’s voice instructing casually, “I need you to investigate someone on my behalf.”
Guan Jing was dumbfounded because he had just received the instruction from Zong Jinghao to investigate Wen Qing. On the other hand, Lin Xinyan had gotten in touch with him and wanted him to investigate someone else on her behalf.
He couldn’t help but doubt because it seemed too much to be a coincidence.
“May I know who is it?” Guan Jing asked in return.
“I need you to figure out the exact location of Li Zhan’s agency,” Lin Xinyan told Guan Jing.
Guan Jing was utterly confused because one of them was going after the father while the other was going after the son.
Did they talk about this beforehand? If they hadn’t, the chemistry between them both is horrifying!
Li Zhan was Wen Xiaoji’s alias. In other words, he was Wen Qing and Li Jing’s son. He had gotten himself an entirely unrelated alias since he had debuted as a celebrity.
Thus, only a mere few were aware of his actual identity. Guan Jing was one of them. He aware of Li Zhan’s actual identity because Zong Jinghao had once brought it up in front of him.
“He isn’t affiliated with any agency. May I know the reason you’re looking after him?” Guan Jing asked because he was aware Li Zhan wasn’t affiliated with any agency. He had a personal manager that would be in charge of his schedule.
“I want him to be the spokesperson of LEO. Do you know how I can get in touch with him?” Lin Xinyan decided to tell Guan Jing the truth and ask for his aid.
“Yes,” Guan Jing assured Lin Xinyan.
Someone knocked on Lin Xinyan’s door – the receptionist of the company had shown up. She stood at the entrance and told Lin Xinyan, “Someone is looking for you.”
Lin Xinyan nodded and took note of the receptionist’s words. She told the person on the other end of the call, “Please text me the methods to get in touch with him once you get your hands on it. I’ve got to go because I have to tend to something else.”
As soon as Lin Xinyan hung up the call, she got up from her seat and asked, “Did the visitor announce his identity?”
“No, but he’s shown up in a wheelchair.”
Lin Xinyan’s eyes widened in shock because only one of her acquaintances would travel around in a wheelchair.
That person was none other than Bai Yinning.
Once she returned to her senses, she instructed the receptionist to bring two glasses of water over to the conference room downstairs as she walked down the stairs.
In the meantime, Bai Yinning, who was in the wheelchair, had his back facing the staircase. He turned the wheelchair around the moment he heard footsteps closing in. Immediately, he saw Lin Xinyan walking down the stairs.
Lin Xinyan saw him as well. She figured out what happened since his head was bandaged and his eyes were bruised.
She walked down the stairs but didn’t bother expressing her concerns.
Bai Yinning’s face darkened as he looked her in the eyes. “Aren’t you going to ask me how I hurt myself?”
He felt dejected deep down because he didn’t expect her to tell Zong Jinghao the truth behind Wen Qing’s accident.
In actual fact, Bai Yinning was certain that Zong Jinghao wouldn’t have figured out that he was the mastermind behind the accident should Lin Xinyan keep her mouth shut.
Nevertheless, they had come to a unanimous agreement of not exposing one another.
Thus, Lin Xinyan pretended as if she had no idea the reason behind his injuries. She asked, “Are you okay?”
“Don’t worry. I’m still kicking and alive,” Bai Yinning replied nonchalantly.
It was evident that he was enraged; Lin Xinyan was aware of his emotions.
She heaved a long sigh of despair deep down because she had long urged him to leave the place, but he had insisted on staying back.
Lin Xinyan took a seat on the couch and served Bai Yinning the glass of water the receptionist had brought her. “Please have a glass of water and calm yourself down.”
Bai Yinning refused to take the glass of water Lin Xinyan offered him. He stared at Lin Xinyan with a serious look and asked, “Can you please tell me if you’ve brought it up in front of him proactively or if you weren’t given a choice because he confronted you after getting his hands on some leads—”
“I brought it up in front of him proactively,” Lin Xinyan broke the silence, confessing before Bai Yinning could finish his sentence. She looked at him in the eyes and told him, “He’s my husband. I can’t and shouldn’t lie to him.”
She told him the things she had been keeping to herself all this while. Although she had her fair share of conflicts back then, she wanted to be honest with Zong Jinghao.
Lin Xinyan didn’t want to keep her husband in the dark, and neither did she want to lie to him because she was a firm believer that honesty was the foundation of a healthy relationship.
After all, she had a special relationship with Zong Jinghao.
Sometimes she couldn’t help but recall that Zong Jinghao had returned to her because of their children. However, he would occasionally be affectionate whenever he was around her.
Hence, he had caused her to fall head over heels in love with him. Lin Xinyan was now serious about Zong Jinghao and wished to spend the rest of her life by his side peacefully.
If it were possible, she would love to conceive once more. Nevertheless, her physical condition forbids her to complete her goal.
Bai Yinning’s heart skipped a beat. Actually, he had long figured out the truth, but he had been hopeful all this while.
He decided to confront her, yet she had let him down once more.
“Weren’t you afraid that I would be killed?” He suppressed his emotions and put on a superficial smile.
“I know him better than anyone else. Hence, I was certain he wouldn’t go overboard.” Lin Xinyan had been by Zong Jinghao’s side. He was a calm and collected man, but he wouldn’t allow others to take advantage of him either.
“Hahaha!” Bai Yinning burst into laughter abruptly and queried, “How can you be so sure?”
“I have faith in him.” One sentence from Lin Xinyan was all it took to render Bai Yinning speechless.
It’s unconditional trust; the most crucial thing to maintain the relationship between a husband and a wife.
In the end, Bai Yinning put on a calm front and remarked sarcastically, “I can’t wait to figure out the way he would respond the moment he figures out the person, whom he has been looking up to all this while, is his ultimate foe.”
Lin Xinyan’s expression changed upon hearing Bai Yinning’s words.
Does that mean he’s aware of the truth?
It sounded like a blunt lie because only a mere few were aware of the truth ever since the evidence of the incident had been wiped out of existence.
She tried her best to calm herself down, looked at Bai Yinning, and asked, “What do you mean? I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Are you sure you’re not lying?” Bai Yinning asked rhetorically with a smirk because he had figured out everything, but he had yet to get his hands on the evidence.
Bai Hongfei’s dying wish was to get Bai Yinning engaged to Cheng Yuxiu’s daughter. In other words, Cheng Yuxiu was a barren woman.
Nevertheless, no one was aware of the whereabouts of Cheng Yuxiu’s child.
“Why would I lie to you?” Lin Xinyan put her glass of water aside and raised her head, looking at Bai Yinning in the eyes.
She was determined to play pretend in front of him.
“The truth shall prevail,” Bai Yinning stated.
He was the first to figure out the fact that Wen Qing had dispatched his men to go after the truth behind Tea Silk because Baicheng was, after all, his territory.
Thus, he made use of the opportunity and deceived Wen Qing’s men. He spread rumors saying Cheng Yuxiu was a barren woman when they were going after the truth behind Tea Silk.
Since Wen Qing was involved in the incident, the man would definitely investigate Cheng Yuxiu’s background if he were aware that she was a barren woman.
