Qiao Lian stared at Shen Liangchuan unbelievingly. She felt as though she had just lifted a huge rock, only to drop it onto her foot!
She opened and closed her mouth repeatedly, trying to find an excuse to reject him. However, after looking at the determined expression on his face, all the excuses were stuck in her mouth.
After thinking for a while, she said stubbornly, “I’ve never met her before.”
“However, she has admired you for quite some time now. So, I think that she would be extremely happy if she met you.”
Shen Liangchuan emphasized the word ‘admired’, causing Qiao Lian to desperately wish that she would have bitten her own tongue!
She stared at Shen Liangchuan, trying to figure out whether he was saying this because he had deduced something about her identity, or whether it was purely coincidence.
However, this person had a skilled poker face. His expression remained blank, so she was unable to deduce anything from it.
She would cross the bridge when she got to it!
She said casually, “Let me try then.”
Shen Liangchuan shot a glance at her before slowly lowering his head. He then said, “I’m begging you.”
When Qiao Lian heard this, she raised her head astonishingly.
He was begging her?
This was the most polite sentence that Shen Liangchuan had ever said to her.
She blinked and could not help but say, “Is Forget Chuan that important to you?”
At this moment, the compartment door was pushed open.
The waitstaff entered and placed the dishes they were lifting on the table, causing the conversation to stop.
After the waitstaff had left, Qiao Lian picked up her chopsticks, intending to take the most tender piece of yellow croaker. However, another pair of chopsticks shot out in front of hers and grabbed it before she could get to it.
Qiao Lian immediately froze. She lifted her head, only to see Shen Liangchuan clamp his chopsticks on the piece of fish.
Oh well, she wasn’t as fast as him after all. She was just not destined to taste this delicacy!
As she thought of this, the pair of chopsticks appeared in front of her face.
She lifted her head bewilderingly and watched Shen Liangchuan put the piece of yellow croaker in her bowl.
Qiao Lian: …
Qiao Lian stared at the piece of yellow croaker and looked at Shen Liangchuan cautiously. “What are you doing?”
People who were unreasonably kind were probably also hiding dark intentions as well!
Actually, Shen Liangchuan did not mean to cause trouble for her.
However, why was she looking so bewildered, even though he was the one who was treating her to a meal?
It was as though she had the impression that he had some sort of evil intention towards her.
Especially at this moment… Why did a small piece of yellow croaker make her so nervous, as though it was the sharpened blade of a dagger?
He could only continue their previous conversation, “I’ll continue to wait for the good news from Forget Chuan.”
Qiao Lian: …
Why was this person so sure that Forget Chuan would choose him?
Qiao Lian lowered her head and stared at the piece of fish.
Actually, she was really happy that Shen Liangchuan wanted to sign her.
She had fantasized countless times before about working alongside Shen Liangchuan. He was her idol, after all.
However, when this day had finally come, she realized that she was not qualified to work alongside him.
She could not reveal her identity to the public… Thus, regardless of how poor she was, she had never thought of entering the entertainment industry.
Gao Youming had always told her that, as a female eSports caster whose popularity was already quite high, as long as she was willing to show her face to the public, he could guarantee that she would earn more than a hundred thousand yuan a month.
However, it was not that she was unwilling to do so. She had already sold her body for money, let alone her face!
Yet, the fact was that she absolutely could not do so.
She picked up the piece of yellow croaker with her chopsticks and put it in her mouth. However, she found it relatively bland.
Then, she heard Shen Liangchuan saying, “If she causes you any difficulties, let me know.”
Qiao Lian raised her gaze, but Shen Liangchuan had already lowered his head and was concentrating on his food.
He looked extremely elegant when he ate. She could tell with a single glance that he had been born in a rich family, as the etiquette he displayed had to have been taught from a young age.
He must have been born with a golden spoon in his mouth, right?
But then… why had Best Actor Shen chosen to enter the entertainment industry?
