Chapter 334 – Best Actor is Jealous! (4)
By the time Qiao Lian arrived at the villa, the landlord was sitting on the sofa in the living room, waiting.
Su Penghao was sitting by the side, looking very impatient. The moment he saw Qiao Lian, he heaved a sigh of relief and headed upstairs. “I’m going to practice, you can entertain the guest.”
He was now the captain of the team, and he spent more than ten hours a day practicing.
Qiao Lian nodded as Su Penghao walked up the stairs.
Qiao Lian looked at the landlord, a middle-aged woman. “Auntie, I thought we had an agreement to rent this villa for a year. The year hasn’t even ended yet.”
The landlord looked a little guilty. “About that, I can compensate you, it’s not a problem. It’s just that now I really need to sell the villa.”
“Why so?” Qiao Lian asked, unconvinced.
“Someone came looking for us and offered to purchase the villa at a price twice the market value. My son is getting married, so I was also thinking of selling this villa to buy a house in the city for him and his wife.”
Qiao Lian was very sharp and noted something was not quite right. “Who is the person offering to buy your villa?”
“It’s a coincidence. She’s also a female eSports caster, her name is Purple Fairy.”
Qiao Lian paused.
Purple Fairy had started scouting around for opportunities again.
She had too much time to waste and loved creating trouble for them.
Qiao Lian was speechless.
She frowned with anger.
This villa in Beijing would easily be worth six to seven million. If she had offered to double the market price, it meant more than ten million.
Throwing this sort of money just to stir trouble could only mean that Purple Fairy was being backed by their low-down sponsor.
Not even the prize money for the competition amounted to this much.
It looked like the King Fighting Team was determined to get the first place.
At this point, the landlord stood up and said, “The buyer will arrive shortly, so I’ll wait here for her to turn up.”
As soon as she had said these words, the doorbell chimed.
The landlord walked out to greet her client warmly and enthusiastically and soon after this, Purple Fairy entered the house.
She had an air of arrogance and haughtiness. When she saw Qiao Lian, she raised an eyebrow. “Forget Chuan isn’t here?”
Qiao Lian paused.
She was so persistent when it came to Forget Chuan.
Adamant about not asking her for any favours, Qiao Lian ignored Purple Fairy’s presence and addressed the landlord directly, “Even if you wish to sell the villa, you will need time for the necessary procedures. We will need time to move too. At the very least, give us half a month.”
The landlord looked as though she was going to speak, but held back.
Purple Fairy laughed. “I’m afraid that’s not possible. I like the villa very much. I’ll give you three days at the most, and you should have left by then.”
There was no room for agreement.
Qiao Lian did not speak further.
Purple Fairy inspected the house and even took the opportunity to visit the training room briefly.
She nodded in approval. “I am very satisfied with the villa. Let’s carry out the transaction tomorrow.”
The landlord nodded.
Purple Fairy glanced at Qiao Lian. “Tell Forget Chuan that the first place in the competition will be mine for sure! I would advise her to watch out, otherwise… Ha!”
Qiao Lian walked out of the villa slowly, feeling a seething anger. Purple Fairy was not an easy person to deal with—while highly intelligent, she was also unscrupulous.
Suddenly, she heard a honk.
She looked up and saw Shen Liangchuan’s car parked by the side of the road.
Quickening her footsteps towards him, another car made a slight swerve and stopped next to her. The door swung open and Sun Linan stepped out of the vehicle. His eyes shone with delight at the sight of Qiao Lian. “Lian Lian, what are you doing here?”
Qiao Lian frowned. “And what are you doing here?”
Sun Linan replied. “I came to buy this villa!”
