Chapter 47 – Your Mom is Back!
The man who spoke was in his twenties and he looked sleazy and arrogant.
That woman stood up with irritation, “How can you say that?”
“I speak however I want, why? Is it illegal?”
The woman gave a cold laugh. “It isn’t illegal. Never mind, I won’t bother with ignorant people!”
“Dang! Who did you call ignorant? Ah!” The young man rolled up his sleeves and took a step forward, staring at the woman. He looked menacing.
Qiao Lian couldn’t stand watching it anymore.
She quickly stood in front of the middle-aged woman and the young man saying, “Why? You want to hit her when you can’t win the argument?”
The man was stunned for a moment. “Who are you?”
Qiao Lian laughed coldly. “It doesn’t matter who I am. I’m not here to fight you, but I came to prove to you that it isn’t hard to pass all of the levels in this game!”
After she finished speaking, she turned around and asked the middle-aged woman, “Auntie, please lend me your tablet for a moment.”
She exchanged eye contact with the woman and she immediately understood Qiao Lian’s intentions. The middle-aged woman opened the game and passed it to Qiao Lian.
Qiao Lian exercised her fingers, picked up the tablet and started playing.
Everyone in the area gathered around and surrounded her.
Qiao Lian hadn’t played games for a long time, but she got addicted just after playing for a few minutes.
Her expression slowly became grim and serious. She didn’t look like she was playing a game, but instead she looked as if she was facing something sacred.
She played the game with skill and speed, not leaving any coins or props behind.
The speed of the game increased, but she continued playing on steadily.
The elderly in the vicinity exclaimed as they watched Qiao Lian play, while the face of the young man who was looking for trouble became paler.
After half an hour had passed, the speed had increased to one that was blurry to watch. However, Qiao Lian continued the game steadily. Everyone who was watching her had their hearts hung on a string and every time Qiao Lian made a turn or jumped, it was soul-stirring. Despite so, Qiao Lian’s control increased as she knew the game better and at the end, she successfully completed all levels!
The whole park was in silence and after awhile, the middle-aged woman exclaimed, “Good!”
Thereafter, she started clapping loudly.
Qiao Lian bowed her head and looked at her trembling right hand. She clenched it with force and smiled queerly. Then, she casually stuck her hand into her pocket and looked up at the young man with gaiety. “Don’t look down on people when you can’t do it yourself. This is one of the easiest games. There’s something this auntie said accurately: ignorant people are scary.”
She was vicious
. The young man was so angry his face turned pale. He stuck his finger out, pointed at her and turned away to leave.
It was then that Qiao Lian heaved a sigh a relief. She looked at the time and realized that she had spent an hour playing!
She was going to be late for work!
When Qiao Lian was about to turn around and run off, her arm was held by someone. When she turned around, she saw the middle-aged woman question, “Aiyo, young lady, what’s your name? How old are you? Do you have a boyfriend?”
Qiao Lian smiled and said, “Auntie, I’m in a rush for work! Let’s talk another time if we have the chance to meet again!”
As her voice trailed off, she turned and started running.
After Qiao Lian ran out of the park, the middle-aged woman was still stretching her neck and watching, wondering why the children of others were so obedient.
She picked up her phone and dialed a number. When it got through, she coldly spoke, “Shen Liangchuan, your mom is back! Quick, come and fetch me! What are you waiting for?”
