Chapter 349 – Mrs Shen’s Identity Has Been Exposed! (9)
Song Yuanxi said, “Auntie, please don’t force Brother Liang Chuan and Sister-in-law anymore. They have just gotten married and also, this kind of things depend on chance.”
Just as Xia Yehua wanted to continue, Qiao Lian immediately looked at Shen Liangchuan and changed the subject. “What have you been doing the whole day? Why are you back so late?”
Shen Liangchuan went with the flow. “We will be entering the filming set soon. There was a gathering for the filming crew of ‘Ambition’ today.”
Qiao Lian nodded. “Ok, I understand now.”
As soon as she had said these words, Shen Liangchuan’s cell phone started ringing.
He lowered his head with a slight frown.
As he reached the balcony, he heard Song Cheng’s voice from the other end of the line. “Brother Shen, there is a budding actress who wants to have a meal with you.”
Shen Liangchuan spoke impatiently, “If there’s nothing important, I’ll hang up.”
“Hey, don’t hang up first! This actress is called Fan Lu. She will be the third actress in ‘Ambition.’ She said that she wants to consult with you something.”
For the past years, there had been many who had wanted to seek guidance from him. Song Cheng wouldn’t have been so blind as to introduce them to him directly.
Song Cheng had to continue, “She is from Young Master Lu’s.”
Shen Liangchuan frowned slightly. “And then?”
“Young Master Lu was hoping that we could help her out, based on your friendship with him in the past.”
Shen Liangchuan gave a cold laughter and said, “Ok, I understand.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he hung up the phone.
He gazed ahead silently while standing at the balcony.
Friendship in the past…
This person who was being addressed by others as Young Master Lu had indeed been his teammate in the past.
Unfortunately, they hadn’t kept much contact.
Hence, this Young Master Lu didn’t have his direct number and could only contact Song Cheng instead.
Shen Liangchuan lowered his gaze and returned to the villa.
Xia Yehua had already stopped broaching the subject of child bearing. She was chatting happily with Qiao Lian.
However, he could tell that Qiao Lian was a little distracted.
He sighed heavily.
Although the issue with the birth control pills had passed a long time ago, but she… still minded it, didn’t she?
After sending off Xia Yehua, Qiao Lian went upstairs and Shen Liangchuan hugged her immediately.
He was extraordinarily gentle tonight. His every move seemed to suggest some kind of apology in it.
After the deed was done, Qiao Lian lay on his arm with her eyes closed and fell asleep gradually.
But Shen Liangchuan’s eyes were open as he looked at the woman in his arms.
Her hair had gotten wet and there were a few strands stuck to her forehead.
He gently stretched out his hand to push her hair away from her face. Under the moonlight outside the window, he carefully looked at her face.
She was his Xiao Qiao. The Xiao Qiao that he hated yet loved.
It was probably because of the life that she had led these few years which had toughened up her character and made her different from what she had been like eight years ago.
As he thought of this, Shen Liangchuan suddenly smiled with satisfaction and lay quietly beside her.
The next day, Qiao Lian only woke up when the first ray of sunlight penetrated the room.
The physical exhaustion she felt made her fall into a trance. She then turned her head and realized that Shen Liangchuan had disappeared.
When she went downstairs, she saw Shen Liangchuan coming home from his morning jog. Droplets of perspiration on his forehead were rolling down his cheek. He looked at Qiao Lian and said, “Wait for me for breakfast, I will go take a shower now.”
Qiao Lian nodded.
Suddenly, her cell phone began to ring.
She took a glance at the caller id and saw that it was Liu Zhixing. The moment Qiao Lian answered the call, she heard Liu Zhixing yelling with anger, “Qiao Lian, do you still wanna keep your job here?! What is the matter with that article?!”
Qiao Lian was puzzled. “What’s wrong?”
“You are in deep trouble! Come to the news agency right now!”
