Chapter 233 – This Is The Ending She Wants (3)
As they had gotten caught up in their conversation at the villa, by the time they reached home it was already 9 pm.
The villa’s workers were all in their room and Caretaker Li was with Xia Yehua, thus the villa seemed really quiet.
After Qiao Lian finished bathing in the room, she went downstairs for dinner.
On the table there was a delicious variety of food in small portions.
Shen Liangchuan was already seated. He only took one glance at her and looked back down when he saw her walk over.
Qiao Lian just ignored him and started eating.
After she had eaten two mouthfuls, a pair of chopsticks suddenly appeared before her, putting a piece of bamboo shoot in her plate.
Qiao Lian was stunned and looked up in shock.
She caught the sight of Shen Liangchuan awkwardly retreating his hand. He was slightly blushing, maybe due to Qiao Lian staring at him. As Shen Liangchuan frowned, he lectured her, “Eat more vegetables.”
Although his voice was freezing cold, his words brought warmth. It caused tears to suddenly well up her eyes, and she quickly lowered her head.
All the food on the table seemed to lose all its taste in that instant.
She looked at the piece of bamboo shoot in her plate, hesitated for a moment and put it in her mouth. However, all that she tasted was bitterness.
Why was he treating her so well?
He was being so nice to her that she could no longer bear to leave him.
He was being so nice to her that, although she knew that all this was an act, she wanted it to last forever.
She pursed her lips and took in a deep breath. She suddenly lost her appetite, as her previously hungry stomach felt as if it had been stuffed to the brim.
She perfunctorily finished another bowl of soup and when Shen Liangchuan was putting down his chopsticks, she immediately stood up saying, “Ah, I’m so tired today. Let’s quickly go and sleep.”
One could tell he was stunned for a moment before he replied, “Ok.”
It was a normal and casual conversation, but when Qiao Lian exchanged eye contact with him, her face inexplicably turned red.
Why did she have bring up the topic of sleeping!?
This man wouldn’t think that she was inviting him, right?
As she worried and hesitated, she followed Shen Liangchuan up the stairs.
In the master bedroom Qiao Lian sat on the bed, acting as if she was looking at her phone. But on the corner of her eye she was paying full attention to Shen Liangchuan, who was sitting on the sofa.
After he had finished bathing, he had been sitting there using his phone. She had no idea what he was doing.
Just when she was staring him, he suddenly stood up, giving her a shock.
She hurriedly lay down, she could hear Shen Liangchuan’s footsteps. It sounded as if he was walking to the cabinet. And then he walked back slowly, stopping right beside her.
Qiao Lian’s eyes were closed, acting as if she was sound asleep, but her ears were completely alert.
He stood next to her and stared at her for a while before saying, “This is for you.”
Then, he turned around and entered the washroom.
Qiao Lian only lifted her head up after the washroom’s door closed. Her gaze fell on the gift box on the bedside table.
She then recalled what Shen Liangchuan had just said… So, this was his present for her?
She picked up the box with curiosity and carefully opened it. In the box laid a pink-colored phone, the one that Shen Liangchuan had broken. It was also the newest model of the brand.
She was suddenly really touched, as warmth rushed into her heart.
He cared about her too, right?
Thus, had she been mistaken?
At that moment, Shen Liangchuan opened the washroom door and walked out. Seeing him, Qiao Lian had the sudden urge to have a good chat with him.
After all, he didn’t seem to be so cold and ruthless to her.
She slowly spoke and asked, “Shen Liangchuan, can I stop drinking the milk?”
