Chapter 162: Everybody Has Secrets (2)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Shen Liangchuan had been born into a wealthy family, thus, he must have grown up in a rather affluent environment. However, most wealthy people did not look favorably upon celebrities. So, why had he entered the entertainment industry?
She had never considered these questions. Only when she suddenly thought of this, did she realize that… she did not understand him at all.
Apart from knowing that he had won a Best Actor award in the past and that he had arduously worked really hard to progress from a nobody to one of the most popular celebrities today, she knew nothing about him.
She did not even know who his father was, or whether he had any siblings.
She did not know why Song Yuanxi was bizarrely staying at their villa. Furthermore, he had never shown any intention to explain this to her.
Was it because… he felt that there was no need to explain this to someone he would divorce sooner or later anyway?
She recalled the conversation they had had on the night they became newlyweds.
Always remember your duty.
As she thought about this, the small piece of yellow croaker she was chewing suddenly turned bitter. She lowered her head and thought for a long while, before finally replying, “All right.”
She absently ate the rest of her meal.
After they had finished eating, Qiao Lian sat in Shen Liangchuan’s car as it drove towards the villa.
On the way, her cell phone suddenly rang. When she picked it up, she realized that the chief editor was calling her.
Her frowned slightly as she answered the call. The chief editor’s voice emanated from the other end, saying, “Qiao Lian, Wang Wenhao only slapped you once, so why are you taking leave for so many days?”
Qiao Lian pursed her lips.
The chief editor continued saying, “Heh, do you not want to work anymore? Then please hand in your resignation letter!”
Qiao Lian smiled and said, “I’ll be coming to work tomorrow.”
The chief editor humphed coldly and said, “At least you have some self-awareness! I’m telling you now, you’d better work hard at uncovering Best Actor Shen’s scoop!”
When she finished speaking, she immediately hung up.
Qiao Lian pursed her lips as she looked at her phone. She could not help but curse out, “You old hag!”
After she finished swearing, she threw her cell phone into her pocket.
As she felt a cold gaze directed at her from the side, her body suddenly froze.
How could she have forgotten that she was in Shen Liangchuan’s car!?
This fellow must have definitely heard her mutterings just now.
She sat up straight and lowered her head, desperately wishing that she could disappear into thin air.
Shen Liangchuan suddenly said, “How do you usually scold me?”
Qiao Lian replied, “Ahh, why would I even scold you!”
“Are you sure?”
Qiao Lian replied, “Absolutely certain!”
Only then was Shen Liangchuan satisfied.
When they reached the villa, both of them got out of the car. Before Shen Liangchuan went into the bathroom with a towel in his hand, he said to her, “Contact Forget Chuan now.”
Qiao Lian said, “I don’t even know how to contact her. Let’s continue this conversation once I’ve figured out how to contact her!”
When Shen Liangchuan heard this, he raised his eyebrows and said, “Don’t you know her WeChat account name? I saw that you had liked one of the posts in her friend group.”
Qiao Lian: …!
She had liked her secondary account using her primary account… that’s no big deal! Boo hoo hoo!
Before she could reply, Shen Liangchuan had already entered the bathroom.
She angrily sat on the sofa. She definitely had to find a way to cause trouble for him.
However, how could Forget Chuan reject him while embarrassing him as well?
Suddenly, Qiao Lian’s eyes brightened!
When Shen Liangchuan walked out, he saw Qiao Lian sitting on the sofa. She was smiling at him, an expression of joy on her face. “I have news from Forget Chuan! She said that in order for her to consider signing a contract with your company, you must first beat her in a video game match!”
She was Xiao Qiao after all — that Xiao Qiao who could back up her reputation with her amazing video game skills!
Thus, how could Best Actor Shen possibly win her?!
