Chapter 226 – The Beginning That He Had Thought (6)
Thinking of sending her brother abroad?
Shen Liangchuan’s pupils shrank and he frowned tightly.
So she wants two million dollars from me… because she is thinking of sending her brother to a better environment for treatment?
But the two million dollars that I gave her before should have been sufficient.
This time she was asking for two million dollars and it tallied with the first figure. Could it be that…
As he was thinking about this, he shook his head, feeling that he must have been thinking too much.
She had just confessed that she liked him, hence she must have been wanting to start anew with him.
As this thought crossed his mind, a touch of gentleness flashed across his eyes.
He didn’t ponder about the sum of money again. He picked up his cell phone to take a look at the time.
It was already four in the afternoon, but Qiao Lian had not replied the WeChat message that he had sent her in the morning.
So what was she doing now? Was she busy?
He picked up his cell phone and hesitated for a while before sending her a message: [What are you doing?]
After sending the message, he stared at his cell phone.
The moment Qiao Lian’s cell phone vibrated, she was speaking to Shi Nianyao about work issues and hence she did not care about it.
After they finished speaking and she had assigned Shi Nianyao some work, she then headed back to her office.
She was quite busy with work as all of Team Two’s work had fallen upon herself and Shi Nianyao, so she didn’t look at her cell phone.
When she was finally less busy, she picked up her cell phone to take a look. She realized that Shen Liangchuan had actually sent her two messages.
One message was to ask her what she was doing. The other only had two words. [Do reply.]
This meant that Shen Liangchuan was not happy.
She hadn’t replied for a long time, so he had gotten impatient?
She hurriedly picked up her phone to reply: [Busy with work.]
The other party responded swiftly: [Don’t even have time to reply a message?]
Although it was only a message, a touch of coldness seemed to emerge from the cell phone.
His resentment was deep indeed!
Qiao Lian blinked. If she replied that she hadn’t looked at her phone, the other party would definitely be even more unhappy. And so…
After thinking for a while, she then replied: [Sorry. You know, this broken phone of mine just got shut down automatically.]
These words of hers brought along tremendous resentment.
Life had been hard for her all these years and she had never bought herself any luxury items.
The time the company had rewarded her with the latest cell phone model, she hadn’t been able to sell it because her work required her to have a high definition camera. But… he had broken that phone, just like that!
Once she sent that message, the other party did not reply as expected.
Qiao Lian stared at her phone for exactly two minutes. Just when she thought that Shen Liangchuan would not reply again, her phone vibrated: [I am downstairs.]
Qiao Lian was stunned for a moment before she realized that Shen Liangchuan had come to pick her up from work again.
It was six in the afternoon now. Unconsciously, she had worked slightly overtime for today.
And how long had he been waiting downstairs?
She zoned out for a while, but then her cell phone vibrated once again. She hurriedly picked it up and saw that there was another message: [How much longer do you need?]
Qiao Lian immediately packed her things and ran out.
When she reached the lift, she then realized that everyone had stayed briefly overtime today too. At this moment, they had all gathered there.
When Su Meimei saw her running over in a hurry, she immediately narrowed her eyes and smiled. “Qiao Lian, I heard that there have been a few times that your boyfriend came to pick you up after work. Why don’t we all go and take a look at how your boyfriend looks like!?”
