Chapter 257 – Why Are You Making Me Take the Pill? (7)
Shen Liangchuan didn’t know why, but for some reason he stood up, walked to the door and looked out through the peephole.
As the guest room was on the second floor and it was inconvenient to take the wheelchair, Qiao Lian had to support Qiao Yi and move up step by step.
At the moment, they were standing in the corridor. Qiao Yi was looking at Qiao Lian with excitement while exclaiming, “Sister, did you see that? I told you I could do it!”
The girl was smiling really happily. She reached out her hand and patted his head while replying, “Yes, our Qiao Yi is awesome! Ok, you should quickly go rest. You must be really tired after the long flight.”
Qiao Yi tilted his head trying to avoid the girl’s hand, but her expression turned cold as she exclaimed, “How dare you shun me!”
Qiao Yi immediately obediently stood on the spot and let her touch his hair.
Only after doing that was she satisfied, and she only headed to the master bedroom after watching him enter the guest room.
Her expression immediately changed as she turned away from the guest room and emotionlessly walked over.
And then, she pushed open the room door and appeared in front of him with a smile on her face.
She didn’t seem to have expected him to be standing there, thus she was slightly shocked as she exchanged eye contact with him.
Shen Liangchuan then realized that… she had always been wearing a mask in front of him.
She only showed her genuine self in front of Qiao Yi.
But when she was with him, she…
Was she putting up an act because she had never liked him?!
This new found knowledge made him feel as if his chest was filled with cotton, and it was really uncomfortable. His gaze also darkened.
He sneered and was no longer willing to pretend as if he was on peaceful terms with her. The words that he spoke were as piercing as a knife, “Ms Qiao, have you finally understood your place?”
So as to cover the jealousy bubbling in his heart, he said the most brutal and vile words he could think of with his most hurtful tone.
He felt as if jealousy was driving him crazy!
Qiao Lian had long known that she would be welcomed with great embarrassment if she went to him.
But when she heard his words, she still felt shame fill her heart.
He was controlling her using Qiao Yi, how could she reject him?
She took a deep breath and tried to suppress the anger in her. Acting as if she hadn’t heard him, she tried to bypass him to enter the room.
Little did she know that he would violently grab her arm to stop her when she started walking.
As she looked back, he sneered and said, “In our wedding contract, I’m the only party with the right to terminate this marriage. Do you remember it now?”
Qiao Lian immediately tightened her fist and stared at him with anger, neglecting the pain she was feeling on her arm.
He then continuously hurled hurtful words at her, “Let me remind you again, you should remember your place and stop trying to test my patience!”
Qiao Lian felt as if her heart was turning numb from the pain.
She looked at the man before her.
His handsome features still looked really attractive under the bedroom lights.
But the gloom in his eyes only was bone-chilling.
She didn’t speak and just stared at him quietly.
In her distant eyes there was defensiveness and fear.
Then she finally spoke, “Shen Liangchuan, why do you have to treat me like this?”
This question made him narrow his eyes.
She was scared of him…
He had met his goal but he didn’t feel the least bit of happiness.
Especially her gaze. It made him frantic for no reason. Hence, he didn’t even think before forcefully pulling her arm and kissing her.
