Chapter 243 – Let’s Get Divorced (3)
Her words were earth-shattering.
Shen Liangchuan felt as if he had been struck and was overwhelmed with astonishment and surprise. He was rooted to the spot.
She stared at the woman in front of him, unbelievably.
When she usually was around him, she was always submissive and gave a smile that played up to him. But now that smile had been obliterated completely. Her tiny face was tightly wrinkled and her gaze was so cold that it seemed like she was looking at a stranger.
And she had played her heartless words down, as if she had just simply been telling him, “Time to have breakfast.”
This side of Qiao Lian was unfamiliar to him.
This sort of feeling was just like eight years ago!
He tightened up his chin and stared at her with his cold penetrating gaze. However deep down in his heart, a gush of mixed emotions burst out in a split second.
Ange and astonishment. But above all, sadness!
He had been betrayed by her once again.
This time around, it hurt more than compared to eight years ago.
He did not say a word, he just watched her grasp the document tightly in her hands. She moved one step forward, abruptly took out a card from her pocket and placed it in front of him. Then she carefully said, “There are two million inside. Take it, I’m paying you back.”
His pupils shrank again.
So she asked him for two million under the name of Forget Chuan because of this?
At the time it hadn’t been that he wasn’t suspicious, but his first reaction had been that he felt that it was because she was worried about her brother’s condition.
He had been worried that she would be put in an awkward situation because of those two million dollars, and hence he had suppressed his suspicions and decided to send her the money. Moreover, even after the incident from eight years ago, he had strived to persuade himself to believe in her.
But in the end…
Her words felt just like pouring oil on his fiery raging heart—he was burning with fury!
He clenched his fists, trying to restrain the anger that was about to erupt, as he narrowed his eyes and said, “Why?”
His voice was hoarse, as if he was suppressing the fiery fury in his eyes. This gave Qiao Lian’s heart chills.
But it did not show on her face at all. She just stared at him.
His question made her feel strongly humiliated.
How did he dare ask?
She had once been the daughter from a wealthy family, but now she was being walked all over, bullied and humiliated recklessly.
She had married him for money.
He had agreed to suppress his own feelings, but then step by step along the way, he had enticed himself into this situation.
She had always been timid and humble in front of him. But ultimately, she had gotten in return birth control medicine! A ligation surgery!
Now she was going to expose this.
The last bit of pride left in her made her strive to maintain her dignity. She stared at him, and her tone remained calm as she asked, “Then why did you marry me?”
Why had he married her?
Shen Liangchuan was dumbfounded because of her question.
In the contract it was stated that he had married her in order to bear his child, but in reality…
His hesitation made Qiao Lian heart feel even colder.
With his reaction and the housemaid’s words, what else was left to understand?
She mocked herself with her lips raised. She saw that he did not have the intention to take the bank card, so she shoved the card into his hands and said, “The money has been returned to you and I have got the contract. As for the divorce agreement, I will find a lawyer to help us create a draft. And rest assured, I will not take a single cent from you. I will leave the marriage with nothing.”
Leave the marriage with nothing?
She had said it so bluntly, without the slightest tinge of reluctance.
How heartless exactly was this woman?
He had reached so low that after eight years, he had once again given his heart to her. But she ignored it!
