Chapter 103 – Why Are You so Good to Me? (3)
When she saw that one of the policemen had rushed to room 888, Qiao Lian began to worry. However, she breathed a sigh of relief after noticing that Song Cheng was as calm as a cucumber.
Indeed, when the policeman walked over, he realized that room 888 was completely empty.
However, because of this, the suspicion surrounding the two of them grew bigger.
Both policemen stared at them.
Song Cheng coughed once and angrily berated Qiao Lian saying, “Why are you calling me ‘dad’ again? You should be calling me ‘brother’!”
Qiao Lian said with a face full of grievance, “Brother, I miss our father.”
The words she spoke seemed to have reopened a wound in her heart. She instantly started crying buckets of tears without even pretending.
She missed her dad—she really missed her dad.
Her tears showed no signs of stopping and the sobbing was even causing her to choke up at the end.
Song Cheng hurriedly patted her shoulders and sighed, saying, “Our father passed away when she was eight years old. That year, she had also banged her head accidentally. Hence, her mental age has remained at an eight-year-old level ever since.”
As he spoke, he tapped Qiao Lian’s shoulders and said, “Xiao Lian, come, stop crying and tell Uncle Policeman how old you are?”
As Song Cheng looked at her anxiously, Qiao Lian immediately stretched out her finger and said, “I’m eight.”
Song Cheng: …
Having noticed nothing out of the ordinary, both policemen went downstairs to report their findings.
As Qiao Lian and Song Cheng watched them leave, they both breathed a sigh of relief.
Then, Qiao Lian turned her head and grabbed Song Cheng’s arm, saying, “Mr. Song… Brother Song?”
The smile on her face would have terrified anybody who saw it.
Song Cheng anxiously said, “What’s up?”
“Can you not tell Best Actor Shen… about everything that has happened today?”
Qiao Lian smiled obsequiously. She thought about how shameful it would have been if Shen Liangchuan had seen what had happened just now.
As Song Cheng listened to her, he thought about her performance just now. He hid a smile and said, “Well, about that-”
“Brother Song… Uncle Song? If you dare to tell Best Actor Shen about this, I- I will…”
“You will what?” Song Cheng asked curiously.
Qiao Lian’s huge eyes looked back and forth. She suddenly smiled cunningly and said, “I’ll write an article that will expose your homosexuality. It’ll be about how you are actually in love with Best Actor Shen!”
Song Cheng: …!
Song Cheng gave her a thumbs up and said, “You got me!”
Qiao Lian was extremely pleased and said, “Well, then, you’ve already promised me…”
Song Cheng nodded and said, “I won’t say anything.”
Qiao Lian momentarily breathed a sigh of relief.
However, just as she did that, she heard Song Cheng say, “Well, I don’t need to say anything anyway.”
Qiao Lian froze and said, “What do you mean?”
“Best Actor Shen has already seen everything for himself.” As Song Cheng said these words, he looked behind her.
Qiao Lian’s entire body froze momentarily before she swung her head around, only to see that Shen Liangchuan and a few of his assistants were standing at the entrance to room 833. They were currently all looking in her direction.
His two assistants’ heads were lowered, their shoulders trembling violently. It was clear that they had saw the events that had just transpired!
Furthermore, even though Shen Liangchuan, like usual, was standing there indifferently, his lips were slightly curled upwards.
Qiao Lian: …!
She immediately understood the situation. No wonder she felt that Song Cheng’s actions were sluggish. In reality, Shen Liangchuan had already switched to a different room and Song Cheng was just staying behind in his old room to pack up his things. As she was unaware of this development, she had self-righteously ran over to help him block the police. However, what she ultimately did was totally unnecessary!
And now… as she looked at Shen Liangchuan, Qiao Lian hastily lowered her head. Boo hoo hoo, she could no longer face anyone out of shame!
Then, she saw Shen Liangchuan stride towards her. As he passed by her, he stopped and casually said, “Your performance just now… Not bad.”
