Chapter 121 – A Slap to the Face (1)
Qiao Lian widened her eyes and looked at him confusedly.
Her wronged expression only irritated him even more!
He narrowed his eyes and stared deeply into hers.
All the shame and hate that he had experienced eight years ago had sparked a notion within him—he wanted nothing more than to strangle her.
That way, he could settle things once and for all.
However, as he looked at her elongated neck, he could not bear to take action.
He thought of the time when she was being mistreated by the servants. Only then did he realize that he could not bear to watch her get hurt.
Only he knew of the depth of his love for her.
However, this deep love he had was not worth a single penny in her eyes. To her, it was part of the artificiality of the Internet.
He was such a proud man. Yet, he had given away his love to someone who would trample all over it.
As he thought about this, the irritation within his body began to slowly intensify again. He wanted nothing more than to take advantage of her entire body!
He immediately lowered his head and grabbed her chin with his large hands. However, he stopped his movements after observing that the girl’s eyelashes were trembling nervously.
He suddenly felt pity for himself and laughed. He took a step back and wiped his hands with a tissue, as though they had been stained by a dirty object. Then, he turned away and walked downstairs.
Qiao Lian leaned against the wall and looked at the wide open door to the study. She then heard him walking downstairs and heading outside.
Everything that he had done had felt like a slap to her face.
She bit her lip, hurriedly calmed herself down and ran downstairs as well.
Noticing Xia Yehua’s anxious gaze, Qiao Lian squeezed out a smile and said, “Mom, it’s all right. I’ve already hashed things out with him, so we’ll be heading home first. Hahaha…”
Once she finished speaking, she chased after him and headed outside. However, Shen Liangchuan’s car had already driven away.
She turned back and saw Xia Yehua and Song Yuanxi’s expressions. With an awkward smile, she pointed outside and said, “Well, I’m trying to lose some weight by walking back…”
After she said that, she immediately ran into the darkness.
She walked back to Villa 8 despondently, but then realized that Shen Liangchuan had not returned after all.
Dejected, she went upstairs, laid on the bed and hit herself on the head.
She had always been quite witty and intelligent, so why could she not figure out the reason why Shen Liangchuan was unhappy?
She fell asleep in a daze.
For the next few days, Shen Liangchuan did not return home.
Qiao Lian wanted to follow him, but she realized that she had no way of tracking him down.
Then, one morning, she was rudely awoken by a call from the chief editor.
In a daze, she held the cell phone to her ear and heard the stern, commanding voice of the chief editor. “Qiao Lian, come to the news agency immediately!”
She hurriedly bathed and changed her clothes. When she rushed to the news agency, she realized that every employee in the agency was on edge. Judging by their expressions… was some important person visiting the agency?
In a daze, she heard Su Meimei say, “Mr. Wang, it’s her! She was the one who exposed the scandal between Li Siqi and you. She was also the one who wrote about your conflict with Best Actor Shen!”
As she finished speaking, Qiao Lian instantly turned her head around and saw a furious Wang Wenhao rushing at her with two bodyguards in tow.
Without another word, she turned around and ran!
However, before she could take more than a couple of steps, the bodyguards had forcefully grabbed her arm and pulled her to Wang Wenhao.
Qiao Lian struggled mightily, but her strength was no match for the group of bodyguards. Her arms were quickly wrenched behind her back and she was subdued. She was unable to move her body at all.
She worriedly raised her head to look at Wang Wenhao. Before she could speak, she saw the other party suddenly raise his arm.
A tight slap landed on her face!
