Chapter 31 – This Is Your Final Chance!
Qiao Lian clenched her fists as she looked at him.
He was casually standing there, holding a glass of wine. When he heard Director Jia’s words, he slightly lowered his eyes. His indifferent eyes fell on the champagne he was holding in his hand.
That air of detachment meant that nobody could anticipate how he would respond.
Yang Lingsi could not help herself from speaking, “Best Actor Shen, surely you must recognize her?”
Qiao Lian’s heart leapt slightly.
Then, she saw Shen Liangchuan raise his eyes and look at her coolly.
His demeanor caused Qiao Lian to feel a wave of despair.
Yes, initially, when Yang Lingsi had made things difficult for her at the filming location, he hadn’t helped her. Instead, he had added insult to injury.
Why would he help her now?
Qiao Lian smiled bitterly as she turned downtrodden. She opened her mouth, only to say, “I—”
“I do not remember clearly.”
A deep, resonant voice floated in the air. Stunned, Qiao Lian raised her head. She looked incredulously at the person who had just spoken.
She felt a curious sensation spread through her entire body.
Shen Liangchuan remained standing at his original spot. After he spoke, he frowned and impatiently set down the champagne he was holding on the table. He turned to leave.
Yang Lingsi was immensely shocked, “Best Actor Shen, how could you not remember clearly?”
Shen Liangchuan did not answer, so Qiao Lian hastily blurted out, “Ms. Yang, since Best Actor Shen has never seen me, he obviously does not remember me. If you have no proof and still insist on spreading unsubstantiated statements in an attempt to create panic, I believe everybody here will be extremely unhappy with you. You were photographed because of your carelessness, wasn’t that entire incident a false alarm?”
Her sharp and blunt remarks hit Yang Lingsi directly, causing her face to turn deeply red.
Director Jia glanced at Shen Liangchuan and hastily said, “Hurry up and send the uninvited people out the door! This entire incident is a misunderstanding. Everyone, please continue enjoying the party!”
Su Meimei was asked to leave the celebration party. As for Yang Lingsi, she still wanted to pester her, but her manager forcefully grabbed her arm, “Yang Lingsi, don’t forget why you are here today! If you still insist on pursuing such pointless matters, I will stop helping you!”
Yang Lingsi was so angry she clenched her teeth. In the past, her manager would never have been able to talk to her with this tone. He was only saying this now because she was in an abject state.
She swallowed her pride, looked at her manager and asked, “Has the matter been settled?”
Her manager nodded and said, “This is your last chance!”
Yang Lingsi bit her lip. As she looked in the direction of Shen Liangchuan, her gaze shifted constantly.
The commotion quickly ended, and the party resumed its original liveliness.
Shen Liangchuan was sitting on a sofa in the resting zone. Due to his immense aura, nobody dared to walk up and greet him except Director Jia.
He silently sat there, admiring the pleasant scene in front of him.
Even though he was casually chatting with Director Jia, his gaze kept sweeping towards a certain petite silhouette located within the crowd.
At this moment, Qiao Lian, either by design or chance, faded out of the crowd’s line of sight and found a corner for herself.
She looked like she was concentrating on eating a cake, but from the corner of her eye, she kept staring at a male star standing not far from her. He was the extremely popular young and attractive actor Wang Wenhao.
Wang Wenhao smirked and said something inaudible. He then raised his head, and his eyes connected with the eyes of female star Li Mengqi, who was standing not far from him.
Li Mengqi excused herself and started to walk out.
Qiao Lian immediately put down her cake and followed her!
It was evident that she was familiar with this type of activity. If one did not know her identity, one would definitely not think that she was actually following Li Mengqi.
Shen Liangchuan’s gaze darkened, and he suddenly stood up. He said to Director Jia, “I am leaving for a while, as I have something to attend to.”
