Chapter 294 – Forget Chuan Trended Online (4)
After Qiao Lian hung up the call with Shen Liangchuan, she logged into her Weibo account.
Then she discovered…
The number one trending search had been replaced by ‘Forget Chuan Liangchuan.’
Qiao Lian was stumped.
She clicked on the link and realized…
Because Best Actor Shen had shared her post, this had influenced people like Mo Xicheng, Fan Jie and his friends to also share the post, which had helped her to garner even more votes.
With these few people’s help, Qiao Lian’s votes had been growing by the minute.
This had put an unimaginable distance between herself and the second place.
Forget Chuan was a hot shot now. This female eSports caster had suddenly become the focus of everyone’s attention.
Remembering Nianyao’s remark, Qiao Lian clicked on Purple Fairy’s account for a look.
Her latest activity had just been posted five minutes ago:
Qiao Lian was stumped.
Clearly, it had been Best Actor Shen and his buddies who had pulled in the votes that had managed to get Qiao Lian the first place. However, Purple Fairy sounded as though she was giving up first place voluntarily.
This was simply… shameless!
Qiao Lian slightly winced.
She suddenly felt that the saying was indeed true: a shameless person is peerless!
As she had time to spare on the cab, she opened her private message inbox. She found yet another voice message from Purple Fairy, “I don’t really care about this insignificant ranking event. Hmph, let’s see who’s got what it takes when it comes to real business!”
What real business would that be?
Puzzled, Qiao Lian could only shake her head and push this matter to the back of her mind.
But shortly after Song Cheng called. “Ms Qiao, we’ve got issues with the batch of new computers that we bought for the team.”
Qiao Lian frowned. “What’s the matter with them?”
“The few sets of highly configured computers that we got had been hijacked!”
Qiao Lian asked the cab driver to turn around and redirected him to a well-known computer retailer store.
On arrival, she frowned as she looked at the shop manager and said sternly, “Manager, what’s this about? Didn’t you just call me last night to tell me that the shipment was here? But today you inform us all of a sudden that you were no longer delivering it. What’s the meaning of that?”
The manager looked embarrassed. “About this… Ms Qiao, we can discuss it. But… let’s go into the private room for the conversation.”
Qiao Lian frowned and gave the manager a look, and then following him, they headed to the private room.
Before they even got there, two voices could be heard coming out of the room.
A male voice asked, “So what’s Forget Chuan’s background? Some people are saying that she’s Mrs Shen, and that’s why Best Actor Shen shared her Weibo post. Purple Fairy, have you ever seen this person?”
A delicate female voice answered, “No, I’ve never seen her, but I’m certain she’s not Mrs Shen! She doesn’t even show her face when she’s on livestream. I reckon she’s exceptionally ugly.”
After these words, the shop manager couldn’t help but turn to glance at Qiao Lian.
Her features were delicate and pretty, and by no means any worse looking than any of the current female celebrities. ‘Ugly’ was not a word one could associate with her.
Qiao Lian frowned and looked at the manager quizzically, using her expressive eyes to question what that was about.
Before the manager had a chance to say anything, the male voice interrupted, “How ugly can she be?”
Purple Fairy laughed sarcastically. “In any case, we’ll be intercepting and buying her computer equipment at a high price. Hasn’t the manager gone out to get her? I guess we’ll find out when we see her.”
Qiao Lian was suddenly alert when she heard this. She got up, pushed open the private room door and strode right in!
