Chapter 251 – Why Are You Making Me Take the Pill? (1)
Shen Liangchuan was wearing a sweater and trousers with both hands casually tucked in his pockets.
His large and tall frame was positioned in a relaxed manner, but his steely gaze was fixated on Qiao Lian.
The whole office fell silent all of a sudden.
Everyone was staring with disbelief at the man standing in front of the meeting room.
A few minutes of silence passed before Liu Zhixing finally reacted, “Best- Best Actor Shen… What brings you here?”
Obviously trying hard to please him and suck up to him, he put on his most pleasant smile as he rushed up to Shen Liangchuan, bending to offer a handshake.
Shen Liangchuan’s hands remained firmly tucked in his pockets.
He completely ignored the approaching man and did not even shift his gaze from Qiao Lian, who had turned pale with fright by now. “Am I not welcomed?” he asked.
Although it looked as though he was responding to Liu Zhixing’s question, Qiao Lian knew very well that the remark was directed to her.
Of course she did not welcome him!
Why had he made an appearance at her publishing firm for no apparent reason?
Surely he was not here to announce their relationship, right?
You’re reading on B o x n o v e l .com Thanks!
The possibility of making the headlines and having her pictures published crossed her mind. She trembled at the thought of that person finding her.
Oblivious to the undercurrents between the two, Liu Zhixing nodded and bowed. “Welcome, of course we welcome you! It is such an honour for us to have your presence grace our humble news agency! Mr Shen, if I may ask… what brings you here today?”
Shen Liangchuan’s expression darkened as he pointed at Qiao Lian. “I’m here to… look for her.”
As he lifted his hand to point at Qiao Lian, all eyes unanimously followed the direction of his finger. Everyone was shaken to the core.
“You- you know her?” Liu Zhixing gave a quick glance in Shen Liangchuan’s direction before looking at Qiao Lian with an incredibly puzzled expression.
Shen Liangchuan then made an amazingly blatant remark, “I not only know her, we are—”
husband and wife!
Before he could finish what he was saying, Qiao Lian quickly interrupted him!
She hurriedly stepped up and grabbed Shen Liangchuan’s elbow. Putting on the most pitiful expression she could, she pleaded, “Best Actor Shen, it- it was all my fault! I will never harass you for an interview again!”
With her words, everyone suddenly saw the light. Except for Su Meimei.
After the previous incident, when Wang Wenhao had come looking for trouble at the news agency, everyone had naturally assumed that this time around Qiao Lian must have had gotten herself into some sort of trouble again. And this time it was with Best Actor Shen!
Chief Editor Zhang Chunhua of Team One immediately looked gleefully at the potential situation that was developing.
Liu Zhixing was stunned. Before he could say anything, Qiao Lian tugged at Shen Liangchuan saying, “Best Actor Shen, could we have a word in private?”
She gave no opportunity for anyone to speak. Pulling Shen Liangchuan along, she hurriedly walked with him into her office.
The meeting room once again fell silent.
After a while, someone sighed and said with a bit of sympathy, “How did Qiao Lian manage to offend Best Actor Shen? This time… it might cost her more than a mere slap?”
Offending Best Actor Shen was career suicide!
Zhang Chunhua laughed derisively, he seemed to take pleasure in other’s misfortune. “Just one look at her and you can tell she’s nothing but a trouble magnet!”
Among the co-workers, some were merely onlookers, while others genuinely worried for Qiao Lian. But only Su Meimei knew the truth, who found herself caught in a dilemma.
She clenched her fists tightly.
Initially she had thought that Best Actor Shen was just having some fun with Qiao Lian. Never did she expect that he would come to the news agency looking for her.
Was Best Actor Shen not worried that his relationship with Qiao Lian could be exposed?!
