Chapter 242 – Let’s Get Divorced (2)
Shen Liangchuan thought for a moment and shortly after gave Song Cheng a call, “Help me book a mala hotpot restaurant.”
Song Cheng: …!
Brother Shen, isn’t the way you treat a girl to a meal a bit odd?
He winced, but he still nodded and said, “Ok.”
After he hung up the phone, Shen Liangchuan gave Qiao Lian a call. “Where are you?”
When Qiao Lian received the phone call, she had already reached the villa. She had just alighted from the taxi and was about to enter the main door.
However when she heard his question, she replied, “I am at the office, what’s the matter?”
“I will pick you up.”
Qiao Lian narrowed her eyes, pursed up her lips and looked blankly at the main door in front of her. After a while, her gaze got gradually firm and persistent and her voice tone became dignified, “I may have to work overtime. You… come and pick me at eight.”
This one word, with his deep voice, made her nose twitch and she almost began to weep out loud.
After the call ended, she pushed open the villa’s door.
She entered quickly, said hello to the nanny and then went upstairs to enter Shen Liangchuan’s study.
The safe was still in the study. She walked over and started to fiddle with the password.
As she recalled his body measurements, which she had obtained slyly from him yesterday, she tried them one by one but neither of them worked.
While dealing with the safe, she was so nervous that she was almost sweating.
The skies outside gradually darkened and it eventually became totally dark. Neon lights slowly started to light up the street in BJ.
Shen Liangchuan had been in front of her office building since five. At this moment he was quietly sitting in the car, sizing up Qiao Lian’s office building.
His cell phone suddenly rang. It was Song Cheng who called. “Brother Shen, the boss from the mala hotpot restaurant has called a few times asking what time you both will be arriving?”
Shen Liangchuan said apathetically, “No rush.”
“Ok then. Oh, right, Brother Shen, the person you hired to deliver the flowers is already on his way. Make sure to call home to inform the housemaid to sign for the delivery.”
Shen Liangchuan nodded and said, “Yes.”
After he ended the call with Song Cheng, he made a phone call to the villa. The housemaid answered the call and after she heard his request, she agreed.
But then she continued, “Mr Shen, will you be coming back for dinner today? Dinner is ready but Mrs Shen is still upstairs. Is she waiting for you or should I serve her first?”
When Shen Liangchuan heard her words, his facial expression turned cold. “What did you say?”
In the warm room, Qiao Lian was so anxious that she broke out in cold sweat.
What was Shen Liangchuan’s actual password for the safe?
She bit her lips and suddenly remembered that special date that Shen Liangchuan had mentioned yesterday.
She tried 0517.
The safe reacted and opened up.
She stared at the open safe, feeling like she had been relieved from a great burden!
The next second, she started to rummage through the documents in his safe at top speed.
There weren’t many things in Shen Liangchuan’s safe. They were mostly the contracts for the his movie shoots. As she continued rummaging, she suddenly found at the bottom of the pile the surrogate pregnancy contract that she had signed with Shen Liangchuan!
Her eyes lit up and she promptly took out the contract.
She stood there while holding the contract, and lowered her head to inspect the document to make sure that it was the original version. She then turned around and as she was intending to close the door of the safe, the door of the study was pushed open. Seconds after, Shen Liangchuan strode in!
His gaze landed momentarily on the document that she was holding in her hand and narrowed his eyes. Then he asked, “What are you doing?”
Qiao Lian held the document tightly in her hands. All the rage and anger in her seemed to have instantly found a venting point. The words she spoke were so calm and rational that could have shaken anyone, “Let’s get divorced.
