Chapter 305 – Qiao Lian, I Like You (5)
Qiao Lian was sound asleep and her breathing even—sleeping like she didn’t have a care in the world.
Shen Liangchuan took a glance at her and suddenly reached out for the cell phone to reply to Sun Linan’s message:[Getting you to compliment me as the grandchild?]
Sun Linan immediately responded:[Hahaha, Xiao Lian, you’ve developed a sense of humour after all these years?]
“Was he being humorous?” thought Shen Liangchuan. He was obviously being sarcastic.
Sun Linan continued firing messages, chatting:[Lian Lian, why do you take so long to reply? What are you doing?]
What else could she be doing?
Shen Liangchuan replied:
And he wasn’t lying either.
Sun Linan continued:[What? So early! You used to be a night owl!]
What night owl? Qiao Lian had always gone to bed early as far back as when he first knew her.
Shen Liangchuan refrained from responding.
The other party sent yet another two messages:[Well, you rest early then. I’ll come pick you up and drive you to work tomorrow morning. Let’s have dinner together after work.] [I know where you’re stay, don’t you try to lie to me. I’ll wait for you at the villa’s entrance in the morning.]
Shen Liangchuan scowled.
He had the audacity to suggest driving her to and from work? That ignoramus!
He turned to look at Qiao Lian with an icy expression.
So she liked to play house and role-play the bride, and also liked having that guy role-play the groom?
They hadn’t even had a wedding ceremony.
As these things went through his mind, he stared blankly into space with an unfathomable look in his eyes.
The following day, Qiao Lian had a naggy feeling that Shen Liangchuan was behaving oddly.
He was staring at her intently while she washed up up.
And during breakfast, he kept staring at her intently.
After breakfast, as Qiao Lian grabbed her bag and was about to leave for work, he walked over to her saying, “I’ll drive you to work.”
After some time, she had gotten used to him taking her to work and driving her home, so she thought nothing of it. However, after she got into the car…
“Hey? Why are we leaving through the back gate? That would mean a big detour.”
Shen Liangchuan replied calmly, “Oh, I need to get something done along the way.”
However after they drove through the back gate, he took a detour before going back onto the usual route.
“Didn’t you say you needed to get something done along the way?” Qiao Lian asked, puzzled.
Shen Liangchuan replied, “I just remembered, no need for that after all.”
Qiao Lian looked at him, completely baffled.
Shen Liangchuan coughed once, completely unperturbed.
On arriving at the office building, they said their goodbyes.
“I’ll pick you up tonight.”
Qiao Lian nodded.
Shen Liangchuan suddenly added, “Oh, I’ve also asked Qiao Yi to come to dinner, so don’t be late.”
Qiao Yi was coming with them?
Because of his condition, Qiao Yi seldom ventured out of the house. As this was a rare occasion, Qiao Lian was determined to put in extra effort.
She immediately nodded. “No problem.”
She turned and walked into the office building, but only after watching Shen Liangchuan’s car disappear into the distance.
As Qiao Lian stepped into the office, she could sense immediately that something wasn’t quite right.
She noticed that the members of Team One were stealing glances in her direction and had a smug expression on their faces. Something must be up.
Qiao Lian walked to her office and when she stepped in, she saw Su Meimei standing there and giving orders to Shi Nianyao, “Look at how untidy your office is. Go clean it up.”
Shi Nianyao refused to budge, “We have cleaning ladies, don’t we?”
“Do as you’re told!”
Shi Nianyao looked up with defiance. “But why?”
Su Meimei was flustered. Ever since Shi Nianyao had stepped into the news agency against her wishes, she had been looking for opportunities to torture the girl. But, alas, Shi Nianyao was extremely crafty.
Su Meimei’s expression was quite hostile, and her tone was arrogant and bossy. “This is the managing editor’s orders! If you don’t like it, you can leave!”
