Chapter 247 – Let’s Get Divorced (7)
The man in front of her looked like he was in his early twenties, only two or three years younger than Qiao Lian.
When he said this, his chin was slightly up in the air and there was disdain in his gaze.
This person was very arrogant.
However when he said that he only trusted Xiao Qiao, Qiao Lian had a sense of pride.
She felt a surge of warmth in her heart.
When she played lot in the past, she had not expected any outstanding results from playing it. But when she actually started playing along with Zi Chuan, her reputation boomed.
Little did she expect that she would still have admirers, even though it had been eight years since she had last played the game.
However… how could she tell him that she was Xiao Qiao?
She had no evidence to show him.
If she suddenly blurted out this fact, he would probably see her as a conman, wouldn’t he?
Qiao Lian looked down to hide the emotions in her eyes. “You said you won’t join a club at the moment. Are you referring to our club or…?”
“I’m not interested in playing eSports.”
Qiao Lian became silent suddenly. “Can I tell you a story?”
“Actually, I am not at all interested in it. But seeing that a beautiful lady is telling the story, I shall continue listening.”
Something nice finally came out of this person’s mouth.
She laughed. “Our country has always paid little attention to the field of eSports. It was only until two years ago that eSports were finally listed as a sport. Since then, large-scale international competitions have also started emerging. But do you know something? Eight years ago, there was already someone who wanted to start an eSports club…”
She talked about the time she played against Country H. At last she said, “In the end, they mocked us by calling us ‘Chinese pigs.’”
Every young man would have a burst of emotions at certain times, so she tried to use this to convince him.
As expected, Su Penghao became silent.
Qiao Lian continued, “You have never interacted with Forget Chuan, maybe she—”
“I wouldn’t even want to go near that ugly creature!” Su Penghao said directly, with a face of despise.
“… Who said that she is an ugly creature?”
“Hmph, in this day and age, anyone can do a livestream. She does not even show her face during livestreams. It must be because even makeup cannot hide her ugly face! I do not want to face an ugly creature every single day, it will make me lose all my appetite. I might not even be able to eat rice!”
Qiao Lian: …!
She burst out laughing suddenly. With both hands cupping her chin, she said, “I’m so sorry for making you feel uncomfortable!”
Su Penghao brushed it off. “It’s not you, why are you apologising—”
Before he could even finish his sentence, his eyes widened as he stared at Qiao Lian in disbelief. “You are Forget Chuan?”
Qiao Lian stood up. Looking at the man in disbelief, she reached out her hand, “Let me introduce myself again. Hello, I am Forget Chuan. Nice to meet you.”
At this moment, all of the arrogance, despise and everything else Su Penghao had felt just now had turned into shock. However, his good manners urged him to set aside all his emotions. He stared at that hand and shook it after some hesitation.
Qiao Lian continued, “Would you consider what I’ve said earlier now?”
Su Penghao’s lips curled. “Even if you are Forget Chuan, my stance remains the same. I do not trust your abilities and I do not want to join a club that’s not reliable.”
She sighed in disappointment. In the end, she was simply not capable enough to guarantee him a bright future.
