Chapter 124 – A Slap to the Face (4)
A shocked Qiao Lian sat on the bed with a swollen face.
Shen Liangchuan had not returned home for almost a week. Furthermore, it was currently daytime, so she thought that there was no way that he would return home at this time, no matter what. However…
She instantly jumped up and ran to the window to look outside, where she shaw Shen Liangchuan stepping out of a car in a black tuxedo. His graceful deity-like body strode into the villa.
Qiao Lian’s heart instantly leapt.
She looked in the mirror and realized that the bruises on her face were still extremely noticeable, even though they had somewhat subsided thanks to the ice.
Such serious injuries could only remain concealed if she chose to cover her face up.
She made up her mind not to let Shen Liangchuan know about this.
She anxiously hopped around the room.
What should she do now?
Shen Liangchuan’s inexplicable rage completed subsided only after he stayed away from the villa for the entire week.
She usually would not be home at this hour, so he had chosen to return home now to collect some documents.
He walked into the living room with a cold expression. He was about to change his shoes when he saw that Qiao Lian’s white sneakers were placed on the shoe rack.
Did this mean that… she was home?
Shen Liangchuan froze momentarily and raised his head.
The second floor was completely empty. She had not come down to greet him.
What could she be doing in her room at this time?
Even though she knew that he was home, she had not come to greet him. Was this because his rage the other day had scared her?
Shen Liangchuan frowned imperceptibly and walked upstairs with a blank face.
After entering the study, he purposely sat inside for a while, but she still did not come over to greet him.
Shen Liangchuan picked up his documents and walked out. He had already decided to leave the villa immediately, but stopped unexpectedly when he passed by the master bedroom.
He lingered at the doorway for a while, before laughing at the anxiety that he was feeling.
This was his home and he should be able to enter any room as he pleased. Why should he care about her feelings on the matter?
He immediately stretched out his hand and pushed the door open.
Even though the room’s dressing table and sofa were clean, to a germaphobe like him, they still seemed a little messy. He frowned again. This woman… Had she not tidied up this room at all last week?
He surveyed the entire room, before his gaze finally fell on the bathroom door.
He walked over and intended to push open the bathroom door. However, he realized that the door had been locked from the inside. The woman inside asked cautiously, “Mr. Shen?”
Shen Liangchuan frowned, sat on the sofa and waited for ten minutes.
However, she still did not come out from the bathroom.
He stood up, walked to the doorway and knocked twice with his hand. He then heard a woman’s voice emanate from within the bathroom, saying, “Mr. Shen, I have a stomach ache… If you wish to use the toilet, please use the one in the living room.”
Shen Liangchuan: …
He actually only wanted to see her, after not being able to see her lively expression for an entire week.
However, after hearing what she said, Shen Liangchuan frowned for the third time and said irritatedly, “I’m going to work.”
“Ah, that’s fine, please go!”
Why did she sound so happy after hearing that he was going to work?
Shen Liangchuan felt even more irritated and turned to leave. Bang! He shut the door to the room.
After he went downstairs, right when he was changing his shoes, he suddenly remembered how weak her voice sounded.
Stomachache… was it serious?
He turned and took out some over-the-counter medication from a drawer. After a moment of hesitation, he still decided to go upstairs.
When he opened the door to the master bedroom, he saw that Qiao Lian had already walked out of the washroom. Hearing the sound of the door opening, she turned around, confused!
The moment he saw her face, he frowned for the fourth time.
