Chapter 217 – We Will Eventually Be Separated (7)
When Shen Liangchuan heard this, he narrowed his eyes while still keeping his arms wrapped around her waist. “We should do what we are supposed to do.”
As he said this, he leaned forward purposely. His warm breath spread over the back of her neck, which gave her tingling sensations and rising goosebumps because she was sensitive.
She gulped nervously.
What they were supposed to do… What kind of thing were they supposed to do?
Could it be that his inner beast had suddenly been triggered and he was going to… devour her in the study?
As soon as she thought of this, Qiao Lian felt like she was going to lose control of her heartbeat.
She wanted to stand up, but she could not move at all. Hence after clearing her throat, she could only say with a parched mouth, “Erm, we… should go and eat first.”
“We can eat after finishing what we are supposed to do.”
Qiao Lian: …
Biting her lips, she said, “But we’ll only have energy after eating!”
She was truly scared of him.
“Energy? Tell me, what do you need the energy for?”
This sentence made Qiao Lian realize once again that she had been fooled.
Her eyes widened in bewilderment. Her pair of big round eyes staring at him and the flustered look she had were way too adorable.
She puffed up her cheeks fiercely. “Of course you need energy to talk! There is a saying that goes like ‘even talking requires effort,’ isn’t it?”
This was the first time he heard of such a ridiculous saying. Shen Liangchuan’s lips curled up.
Meanwhile, Qiao Lian straightened her back and said, “Shoot, what is the thing we are supposed to do? I’ll use my last bit of energy, so say it.”
Shen Liangchuan: …
She was still the same—just like eight years ago—spewing nonsense after being embarrassed and angered.
However, he did not dare to tease her more to prevent her from getting truly angry, so he said, “I want to form an eSports team and ask Zombie Leader to be the team leader.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Qiao Lian instantly widened her eyes. “What?!”
Shen Liangchuan continued, “Do you still remember last time, when told you that I want Forget Chuan to come and be the coach for my team?”
Of course she remembered!
At that time, she had been surprised of the fact Shen Liangchuan had an eSports team. However, she did not think much of it because she had thought that he had said it casually and he was only playing for fun.
But looking at it now… He seemed to want to do it seriously?
She turned her head in astonishment. She could tell that the expression on his face was genuine and sincere, because the distance between them was very short. “Could you help me ask her what I can do to make her sign a contract with me?”
His gaze was determined and serious, as if he was executing a sacred task.
His emotions influenced her.
Qiao Lian remained silent for a while before saying, “I will pass on the message to her.”
His serious tone caused Qiao Lian’s eyes to water ineffably.
The relaxed atmosphere from before turned depressing all of a sudden.
Qiao Lian could not help but look down and smile bitterly.
The more she interacted with him, the more she realized that this man had an unusual appeal, which only made her fall for him deeper, even though she wanted to leave him.
Therefore she had to leave him as quickly as possible.
Otherwise, she might actually not bear to leave him.
After eating dinner with Shen Liangchuan, Qiao Lian went upstairs and entered the master bedroom. Meanwhile, Shen Liangchuan had some stuff to do, so he went into his study.
Lying on the bed and staring at the ceiling, Qiao Lian suddenly made a firm resolution.
She picked up her phone, opened WeChat and started chatting with him:[Forget Chuan: You there?] [Shen Liangchuan: Yes.] [Forget Chuan: I can accept your offer, but I have one condition.] [Shen Liangchuan: What is it?] [Forget Chuan: I want you to send me a one-time payment of two million dollars of my salary for the coming year.]
