The only person living in this world who could have actually beaten her at playing video games in her prime would have been Zi Chuan.
One could even say that it had been Zi Chuan who caused her to play video games so competently.
From the time when she used to play video games casually, to the addiction that she experienced later, to the time that she finally became one of the best video gamers ever, video games had become one of her biggest passions in life.
Qiao Lian curled her lips. Even though there were many areas in which she could not hope to match Shen Liangchuan, playing video games was certainly not one of them. After all, her ability to play video games was one of her strengths.
He would be speechless once she had beaten him, right?
As she thought about this, she looked at Shen Liangchuan.
He had just finished showering. A towel was wrapped around his waist, exposing his compact abdominal and pectorial muscles.
The only source of light in the room came from a dimly lit bedside lamp. His skin glowed brightly because of it.
His face looked as sharp as a well-carved statue. His appearance was so exquisite that it could anger both mortals and deities alike.
His distinct facial features exuded determination.
Hence, even though he looked extremely beautiful, he did not exude any femininity at all. Instead, his body exuded a sense of masculinity.
The stars were brightly shining outside. Today was a rare day in which there was no fog whatsoever.
However, at this moment, Qiao Lian had no time to enjoy the scenery outside. That’s because to her, the star that shone the brightest in the entire world was right in front of her.
This star had guided her in the right direction during the darkest days of her life.
Thus, she idolized Shen Liangchuan. Due to this idolization, she felt small and diminutive when facing him.
Growing up, she had always felt as though she stood above everybody else. Even if her household was about to collapse, she would never compromise for anybody, except for Shen Liangchuan.
Hence, she felt a sense of resentment within her.
Now, she would teach him a lesson under the guise of ‘Forget Chuan’. At least this way, she could regain some dignity.
As she thought about this, she became momentarily excited.
Later, after she crushed Shen Liangchuan, would he start crying out of anger?
She excitedly looked at him, only to see that he had an apathetic look on his face, causing her to be unable to gauge his feelings. Qiao Lian snickered uncontrollably when she saw his relaxed expression.
Go on, keep acting.
Later on, you will lose everything, even the pants you are wearing!
She immersed herself in her thoughts before staring once again at Shen Liangchuan. “Shen Liangchuan, Forget Chuan is a female video game caster. No doubt, she will be extremely good at playing video games. Are you afraid of taking her on?”
She was purposely asking him whether he dared to play against Forget Chuan and not whether he was actually playing because she wanted to purposely antagonize him.
She was certain that there was no way he would refuse.
Indeed, he lifted his head.
A complicated expression was reflected in his dark eyes. Was he afraid?
Just as she thought of this, she heard him reply, “All right. When is this going to happen?”
The faster the better, of course!
However, if she started the match right now, wouldn’t she blow her cover?
Qiao Lian’s eyes rolled around in their sockets as she examined the room.
How could she prevent him from figuring out that it was her playing in the video game match, while at the same time still allowing her to see him embarrass himself?
This was a dilemma indeed.
Qiao Lian stood up and walked into the bathroom. “I’ll arrange the match for tomorrow evening.”
Once she finished saying that, she closed the door and took off her clothes.
As she still had injuries all over her body, she could not shower or bathe. She could only wipe her body with a towel. She did so while looking at herself in the mirror. However, she could not wipe her back, no matter how hard she tried.
Just as she was fretting over the problem, the door to the bathroom was suddenly pushed open. A shocked Qiao Lian violently turned her head to look behind her, only to see Shen Liangchuan walking towards her.
Panicked, she hurriedly picked up the towel and wrapped her body with it. “Why are you here?”
