Chapter 348 – Mrs Shen’s Identity Has Been Exposed! (8)
She felt superior after becoming famous and had developed a contempt for others.
Recently, the fact that she was having an ambiguous relationship with a magnate had been leaked, however she had denied this outrightly.
In any case…
They had received a tip that she would be attending an event with the magnate later today.
Qiao Lian was very lucky to manage catching the rumored couple on camera. The slightly blurred image of their side profiles was good enough to prove their identities.
She returned to the news agency on the same day to file the story before she finally left work.
Shen Liangchuan was busy and wasn’t able to pick her up today.
She hailed a cab instead.
As she arrive at the main door, the smell of dinner being cooked drifted out and the laughter of Xia Yehua and Song Yuanxi could be heard.
Song Yuanxi and Xia Yehua shared a very close relationship and got along like mother and daughter. Xia Yehua was most protective over the frail-looking Song Yuanxi.
Xia Yehua’s eyes lit up as she saw Qiao Lian entering the house.
“Xiao Qiao, you’re back? Come have dinner, I’ve made you black chicken soup. This is especially good for the womb, you have to drink more. You need to eat well, drink well and not get too stressed at work, since you and Liangchuan are planning for a baby.”
Qiao Lian was grinning as she walked across the living room, but she suddenly stopped when Xia Yehua mentioned planning for a baby. Suddenly, she was worried.
The results of her recent medical examination came to her mind once again.
She wouldn’t be able to get pregnant in the short term, as she needed to purge the toxins from her body before she was physically fit to conceive.
At least not for the next six months.
She looked at Xia Yehua. “Mum, you…”
Xia Yehua walked over to her, smiling, and held her hand. “Come sit and have some soup before dinner.”
Seeing her enthusiasm, Qiao Lian nodded in agreement.
Shen Liangchuan was home before Qiao Lian finished the soup. On seeing him, Xia Yehua served him a large bowl of tonic soup, saying, “You seem to have shed quite a few pounds again. What are you so busy with? Surely work’s not more important than your health. You need to build up your health. No smoking and drinking while preparing for pregnancy, do you understand? ”
Shen Liangchuan froze in the middle of removing his jacket and glanced at Qiao Lian, who was on the couch.
He could sense her gloominess and discomfort, even though she was just sitting quietly and smiling along.
He was sure it had something to do with the birth control pills.
He cleared his throat. “Mum, let’s not discuss this now. We are still young, there’s no hurry for children.”
Xia Yehua sneered, “What are you talking about? You’re almost 26! There’s a time for everything and now is the perfect time for you two to have a baby. This way it will be easier for Xiao Qiao to recover from the pregnancy too.”
She went on, “Thanks to Yuanxi, who reminded me today. You two have been married for two months, so… any good news?”
She turned and looked at Qiao Lian. “Your period…?”
Qiao Lian lowered her head. “Regular as usual. My period this month should come in a day or two.”
Xia Yehua’s eyes sparkled with hope. “Which means there’s a chance this month, yes?”
Qiao Lian threw a glance at Shen Liangchuan. “I don’t think it will happen that soon.”
“How is that so? You two look perfectly healthy, there shouldn’t be a problem.” Xia Yehua was about to continue when Song Yuanxi took a step forward and grabbed her shoulder.
