Chapter 260 – Why Are You Making Me Take the Pill? (10)
After Qiao Lian bellowed out those words, she seemed to have vent all her emotions.
She held onto the quilt to block the pitiful state that she was in. Then she stared at the man in front of her.
He was standing against the light, so it was impossible see his facial expressions clearly. However one could feel that at the moment, his anger had already subsided.
What grounds did he have to unleash his temper with her? It was obvious that she was the one who had been hurt.
Qiao Lian just stared straight at him, feeling stifled and annoyed.
She saw him open his mouth, and he hesitated for a long time before speaking, “I- I will not divorce you.”
His muffled words made her feel cold.
Qiao Lian sneered, turned her head and stopped looking at him.
The room instantly became silent, creating an odd atmosphere.
Qiao Lian stared at the prints on the quilt and did not say a word.
After some time, she finally heard his footsteps gradually drifting away. She turned around and saw that he had already put on his clothes and was walking out of the room.
The moment the door was closed, tears of grievance poured down her cheeks again.
Qiao Lian stretched out her sleeves to carelessly and angrily wipe her tears.
Why was she crying? It was against her own interest!
Didn’t she already know that to him she was in fact nothing at all?
Now, he had just left without even bothering to explain…
But at least the things that had happened today would not happen again!
So now, what she needed to do was to make herself stronger, so that she would not get humiliated at random again.
She bit her lips and lay in bed silently.
She thought that she wouldn’t be able to fall asleep, but she hadn’t slept at all the previous night and, together with the rigorous exercise before, she felt that every single organ in her body was thoroughly burned out. After a while, her eyelids got heavier and she fell fast asleep.
When Qiao Lian woke up, her head was dizzy and her limbs were weak and powerless.
But she still reluctantly stood up and after washing her face and rinsing her mouth, she walked out of the master bedroom listlessly.
As she got downstairs, the telephone rang.
The housekeeper answered the call, looked at her and said, “Looking for you, Madam.”
Qiao Lian walked towards her in doubt. She held the telephone receiver next to her ear. “Hello?”
“Sister-in-law, it’s me, it’s me!” Fan Jie’s happy voice could be heard at the other end of the line. “I will go to the news agency today for the follow-up interview. Let me know when is a good time.”
Qiao Lian’s gaze sank and soon after that, a smirk appeared on her face.
Fan Jie had called before to say he was not coming.
But now he called intentionally. So this was her remuneration for last night?
This was indeed a joke.
She took a deep breath in order not to take her own anger out on Fan Jie. “Who would dare to trouble Superstar Fan to come to our small news agency?”
Fan Jie immediately offered an apology. “Ah, it’s no trouble. Sister-in-law… Could you not speak in such a peculiar manner? I- I feel terrified.”
Qiao Lian smiled coldly and was thinking of saying something when the other person said, “Sister-in-law, I will be at the agency at ten and that’s a deal. See you in a while. Bye bye!”
He spoke without pausing and then hurriedly hung up the call. It was as if he was worried that she would reject him.
Qiao Lian narrowed her eyes with a bleak expression.
After she hung up the phone, she heard Qiao Yi voice, “Sis…”
As she turned around, she saw Qiao Yi in his wheelchair, slowly sliding towards her.
Qiao Lian immediately kept her emotions at bay, laughed and said, “Have you had your breakfast?”
“I have eaten.” Qiao Yi then said, “Brother-in-law said that there are some urgent matters to attend in the office today, so he left for work first.”
