Chapter 310 – Qiao Lian, I Like You (10)
It was a bouquet of 99 roses, each of the stalks beautiful and alluring—a delight to the eyes.
Qiao Lian stood up with surprise as the delivery man asked, “Are You Ms Qiao Lian?”
Qiao Lian immediately nodded.
The delivery man smiled. “This is from a gentleman.”
Suddenly Qiao Lian recalled what Shen Liangchuan had said about proving it with actions.
So was this from him?
She took the huge bouquet and searched through the packaging. Indeed, she spotted a card.
A short message was written on it: Qiao Lian, I like you. See you tonight.
Qiao Lian cracked a brilliant smile at once.
It was a gigantic bouquet with 99 stalks of roses, no less. And it attracted everyone’s attention.
Members of Team One came running over to the Team Two’s office to look at this amazing bouquet, expressing their admiration.
“Qiao Lian, is this from your boyfriend?”
“Holy cow, 99 roses! Qiao Lian, you have a rich boyfriend indeed!”
“… So romantic!”
Qiao Lian wasn’t too affected by her colleagues’ responses, but the bouquet did cause her heart to swell with joy and sweetness.
As Qiao Lian was all wrapped up in the emotions of having received this wonderful bouquet, someone knocked on the door.
She looked up and saw another delivery man walking in with a huge tray of afternoon tea. “May I know if you’re Ms Qiao?”
Qiao Lian nodded blankly.
“A gentleman has asked us to deliver this to you. He said that it’s afternoon tea for all your colleagues.”
These were some of Beijing’s best-known cakes and pastries!
So… these were from Shen Liangchuan as well?
She sank into her chair in absolute bliss, with the bouquet in one hand and the cakes and pastries in the other.
She got so carried away that she had failed to realize that such a showy display of affection was not in line with a certain someone’s style.
After the delivery man had completed his job and left the building, he picked up his cell phone to make a call. “Mr Sun, I’ve made the delivery and Ms Qiao was so happy that she couldn’t even put the bouquet down.”
“Yes, I knew she’d like the bouquet. She couldn’t forget me even after all these years!” The narcissistic Sun Linan said. Then he looked into the mirror and said to the stylist behind him, “Please hurry, I have to pick someone up at six. I have to look my best for her!”
Unable to refrain himself, he eagerly picked up his cell phone to send a message to “Xiao Lian.”[Guess who the bouquet and afternoon tea were from? I’ll reward you with a kiss for the correct answer.]
Shen Liangchuan was waiting by Qiao Lian’s office building when the message came in.
He had come at 4.30 pm to pick Qiao Lian up for their dinner date.
On reading Sun Linan’s message, Shen Liangchuan could immediately guess what had happened. This guy had actually bought flowers and afternoon tea for Xiao Qiao?!
That was way too much.
He was about to reply to Sun Linan’s message, when he suddenly saw from the corner of his eye a familiar figure approaching.
He put his cell phone aside and followed Qiao Lian with his eyes as she walked to the passenger seat. She looked around, quickly opened the car door and got into the car in a flash.
Shen Liangchuan looked at her intently, noticing that she was radiant with joy and looking back at him with twinkling eyes.
She suddenly leaned towards with and kissed him, before he could utter a word.
A smile slowly spread across Shen Liangchuan’s face as he tried to suppress his own glee. Qiao Lian gushed, “Shen Liangchuan, I loved the bouquet and the afternoon tea. Who would have thought that an apparently stuffy man like you would be capable of being this romantic!”
Hearing this, Shen Liangchuan’s expression froze and almost immediately turned gloomy.
