Chapter 228 – The Beginning That He Had Thought (8)
Su Meimei’s gaze caught Qiao Lian’s awkward and embarrassed look. This made her even more determined that Qiao Lian’s boyfriend was poor.
In the elevator, she didn’t stop mocking her, “Actually Qiao Lian, you are not that young anymore, it’s time for you to fall in love. But your foresight cannot be too poor, can it? No matter the love, it cannot be compared with having a life full of wealth. If you marry a good man, you might possibly have 10 years less of struggle! There’s this saying that goes, ‘One would rather cry in a BMW, than to laugh in a bicycle’. That explains it.”
Her chatter simply made Qiao Lian more impatient. She rebutted sarcastically, “So are you the one who cries in the BMW?”
These words caused Su Meimei to choke and breathe uneasily. “This is not what I meant! You- You- This penniless woman! You are just jealous that my boyfriend is rich!”
She couldn’t be bothered to talk anymore, as Su Meimei’s brain circuits were absolutely abnormal.
She simply turned her head to look to the side.
Su Meimei was so livid that one could see her chest going up and down. After quite a while, she managed to keep her anger under control and narrowed her eyes to stare at her.
Liu Zhixing chuckled, gave Su Meimei a pat on her back and then looked at Qiao Lian. “Xiao Qiao, we are all colleagues. How can your words be so harsh? Meimei and I are truly in love. Whereas you, I heard that your brother is in the hospital. How come? Do you have enough money at hand for his medical bills? If it’s not enough, I can lend you some…”
In front of Su Meimei he expressed such goodwill towards Qiao Lian. This made Su Meimei even more angry and her face turned red in anger.
Qiao Lian felt that it was fun. “If I were to ask you to lend me money, would you, Managing Editor, lend it to me?”
“Of course, we are all colleagues. Why wouldn’t I lend? One word and no matter how much money you need, I will lend it to you.”
Qiao Lian scratched her chin and said, “My brother needs two million dollars for his medical expenses. Managing Editor, will you lend it to me?”
“This—” Liu Zhixing also choked.
“You are really asking for an exorbitant amount!” Su Meimei was hopping mad. “What is his medical condition!? Why does he need two million dollars!? Is your brother’s life made of gold? I really can’t understand it!”
Qiao Lian narrowed her eyes and smiled coldly, but did not respond.
Nevertheless, Su Meimei could not ease her anger. “Why don’t you ask your boyfriend for money? Or is it that your boyfriend doesn’t have money? Qiao Lian, if you are really short of cash, I actually know of a few people who are rich. Do you need me to introduce you to them? They are normally generous to women! I could even introduce a few more to you…”
With these words, Qiao Lian’s expression changed.
Didn’t it mean that she thought of her as an escort?
She immediately rebutted sarcastically, “No wonder even when Managing Editor hadn’t joined us yet, you already have branded bags. So they were actually given by those male friends of yours?”
Su Meimei facial expression changed in a second. She was about to say something, but she suddenly saw Qiao Lian stretching out her hand to press the elevator buttons for all the following floors. Then once the elevator door opened, she turned her head and said while smiling, “Excuse me, I will leave first!”
After that, she leapt out and headed straight down the staircase.
After that the elevator would stop at every single floor, and so when Qiao Lian reached the first floor perhaps the elevator would have not arrived yet!
Qiao Lian summoned all her strength to increase her speed to the fastest she had ever reached.
She definitely had to rush into Shen Liangchuan’s car and speed off before the elevator reached the first floor.
When she reached the first floor, heavily panting, she heard the “ding” sound coming from the elevator. Su Meimei and the group came out.
