Chapter 149 – When We Were Young and Reckless (9)
Qiao Lian: …
Even she despised her own face at that moment, let alone Shen Liangchuan. He couldn’t possibly like her when she looked like this!
Could it be that this man didn’t even like beautiful women? Did he only like ugly women?
As she tried to guess Shen Liangchuan’s inner thoughts, Qiao Lian could not help but lift the corners of her lips. She wanted to smile, but doing so only made her injuries hurt.
After she took a deep breath, she noticed that Shen Liangchuan had already walked out of the toilet. He was slowly approching her.
She stared at his body intently.
He was wearing a white jacket and he looked both tall and handsome as he strode towards her. It seemed as though that day’s fight hadn’t even left a single scratch on his body.
His face had no injuries or blemishes of any kind.
She suddenly felt a sense of imbalance in her heart.
Both of them had fought together. However, why was she the only one who had turned ugly and ragged, while this man looked as though nothing had happened to him?
As she thought about this, he had already sat beside the hospital bed. He said, “What are you thinking about?”
Her eyes seemed as though they were glued to his body.
He could not help but to curl his lips, as a feeling of happiness rose inside his heart.
Qiao Lian gazed at his body until he looked uncomfortable, before saying, “Mr. Shen, did you not get even a single scratch?”
Shen Liangchuan thought, “Why does she sound disappointed?”
He narrowed his eyes and said, “Are you disappointed that I wasn’t beaten to a pulp, like you?”
Qiao Lian began to nod, but then she immediately reacted and said, “No, of course not!”
Shen Liangchuan: …
Shen Liangchuan pursed his lips and said, “Xiao Qiao.”
As he growled the words “Xiao Qiao”, his low, rich voice sounded to Qiao Lian like a cello playing the D major scale. The voice had a unique tone to it, a lasting appeal that caused her body to burst out in goosebumps.
Qiao Lian immediately nodded in agreement. The way he addressed her had made her blush intensely.
At this moment, she was thankful that her face was already so swollen that he couldn’t see how flushed she was!
Then, she heard Shen Liangchuan say, “Do not call me ‘Mr. Shen.’”
Qiao Lian widened her eyes and claimed, “Then, should I call you Best Actor Shen?!”
Shen Liangchuan shook his head.
Not even Best Actor Shen?
Could it be…
“Should I call you Brother Shen, like Mr. Song and the rest?”
He curled his lips. Even though the way she had said ‘Brother Shen’ was different from how others usually said those words, he did not want her to address him like this. To him, Qiao Lian was one of a kind.
He continued to shake his head.
Qiao Lian: …
See, she was right! How could this man suddenly treat her so well while expecting nothing in return?
Look at him. A leopard can’t change it spots, and this guy could not help to purposely make things difficult for her.
She had no option but to keep guessing, “… Teacher Shen?”
Didn’t most of the younger celebrities in the entertainment industry address him like this?
As a female caster, she could be considered as a part of the entertainment industry.
Shen Liangchuan continued to shake his head.
Qiao Lian said, “Mr. Shen, I- I have lost too much blood and my head is feeling woozy. I can’t think anymore, so can you give me a hint?”
“Who am I to you?”
Qiao Lian said dumbfoundedly, “You’re my idol, of course!”
“Other than this.”
Qiao Lian said, “… I can’t remember.”
Shen Liangchuan’s tone immediately turned icy. He said, “Xiao Qiao, let me remind you that we live together under the same roof.”
Qiao Lian said, “Oh, I understand now!”
Just as Shen Liangchuan breathed a sigh of relief, she claimed, “I should call you ‘roommate’!”
Shen Liangchuan thought, “… What the hell?”
Qiao Lian said, “You see, if we live together, aren’t you my roommate?”
