Chapter 293 – Forget Chuan Trended Online (1)
She pointed at Qiao Lian with a trembling hand, as though she had discovered something unimaginable. Qiao Lian reflexively grabbed her saying, “Nianyao, let’s talk in private.”
After this, she dragged Shi Nianyao out of the meeting room and into her office with a secretive expression on her face.
Shi Nianyao was still staring at Qiao Lian, who in turn looked back at her silently.
After two minutes, they both pointed at each other and said in unison, “It was you!”
The same expression and the same tone!
They continued to hold each other’s stare after this discovery, and then they suddenly burst out into loud laughter.
Shi Nianyao had remembered her and in the same way, the reminder had also served to jog Qiao Lian’s memory of Shi Nianyao.
It turned out that the girl that Mo Xicheng had randomly kissed and who had caught the attention of the public had been Nianyao.
How uncanny that one could look all over the world for an answer, but not realize it is right there before one’s eyes. It was really that simple!
Qiao Lian could not help but laugh bitterly.
The greatest possible achievements for the two teams this month would be, firstly, the identity of this elusive Mrs Shen and secondly, the identity of Mo Xicheng’s mysterious girlfriend.
Qiao Lian and Shi Nianyao looked at each other in dismay and didn’t speak for a while.
Shi Nianyao broke the silence. “So… do you know the identity of Forget Chuan?”
Qiao Lian had no choice but nod.
Shi Nianyao looked intently at her and recalled her earlier expression. She narrowed her eyes. “Don’t tell me it’s…”
Qiao Lian nodded again.
Although they had known each other for only about a month, it felt like it had been forever. They had good chemistry and a great rapport between them.
Shi Nianyao said decisively, “Okay, why don’t you settle the thing with Mrs Shen and Forget Chuan, and I will settle the issue of my idol’s mysterious girlfriend?”
Hence, the both of them busied themselves with getting ready to head downstairs and join the larger group, formed by assigned members from the other teams.
While knowing that the others would probably be shadowing their targeted subjects overnight, they both bade each other goodbye and each headed back to their respective homes.
Once she got on the cab, Qiao Lian gave the driver directions back to the villa.
She picked up her cell phone, intending to check how the voting was progressing.
When Best Actor Shen did what needed to be done, the result spoke for itself.
Although Purple Fairy had gotten a hundred thousand votes, Forget Chuan had managed to hit a million in a short time. Besides, the number was still on the rise!
Looking at how things were going, Qiao Lian didn’t even dare log into her own account in the fear that her phone would hang.
Holding the cell phone, Qiao Lian hesitated for a while. Then she clicked the directory to locate Shen Liangchuan’s number and dialed.
The phone rang once before he picked up the call. His deep and resonant voice came through, “Hello.”
The sound of his voice sent an electrifying current through Qiao Lian’s body, hitting eventually a chord in her heart. She smiled unconsciously. “I left work.”
“… I’ll go pick you up?”
“It’s okay, I got a cab and I’m on my way home.”
“Erm… Why did you follow my account?”
There was a pause on the other end, and then Shen Lianchuan replied in a business-like manner, “Because… I’m your fan.”
Wasn’t Weibo a place where fans followed their idols?
A silly grin spread across Qiao Lian’s face when she heard the answer. Embarrassed, she buried her face in her hands.
As they chatted, a notification alert sounded on her cell phone. She glanced down at the screen and saw that it was a text message from Nianyao:[Check out Purple Fairy’s Weibo. That hypocrite! What a two-faced creature!]
Qiao Lian froze and a dreaded feeling overtook her. Purple Fairy, what was she up to this time!?
