Chapter 49 – Xiao Qiao, I Really Like You
One day flew by extremely quickly and before she knew it, it was time for her to end work.
Qiao Lian dilly-dallied in her office, she was unwilling to return home.
When she recalled the awkward situation with Shen Liangchuan, she couldn’t help but sigh.
To be honest, what was she scared of?
It was her safe period now. Based on the hate Shen Liangchuan harbored against her, he wouldn’t touch her when he was sober.
Qiao Lian packed up her things, took a bus and returned home.
After she alighted, she leisurely strolled around the area. It was already 7 pm, so the number of people in the park was dwindling.
While walking forward, she kicked a stone out of boredom and suddenly heard shouts behind her, “Hey, young lady!”
Qiao Lian turned around with uncertainty and was met with a beautiful middle-aged woman walking towards her excitedly.
She immediately recalled that it was the woman she had met in the morning at the park, playing the game.
She stopped in her tracks and politely addressed the woman, “Hi, Auntie.”
“Aiyo, hello! You’re finally back, I’ve been waiting for you here for three hours.”
Qiao Lian was confused. “Why are you waiting for me?”
Xia Yehua smiled. “I’m waiting for you to play with me! You were really awesome when you played this morning, please teach me.”
Qiao Lian: …
Xia Yehua saw her surprised expression, so she was worried that she had been overly enthusiastic and had scared her off. She then sighed and said, “Ugh, actually I’m just really bored and lonely. Are you very busy? If you are, then it’s alright.”
Coincidentally, Qiao Lian didn’t feel like returning home. Thus, she immediately replied, “I’m not busy, let’s go over and take a seat.”
Both of them sat on the long bench and Xia Yehua took out her tablet saying, “Quick! You probably don’t realize, but I think watching you play is a form of relaxation.”
Qiao Lian replied cheerfully, “Auntie, actually there are tactics for playing games. Let me tell you, this type of game is meant to test the reaction and speed of the player, but…”
After explaining all the tactics of the game to Xia Yehua, Xia Yehua had made great improvement. She excitedly exclaimed, “Ai, daughters are still better! My son is very good at games, but he doesn’t have the patience to play with me. He even despises it and thinks that I’m stupid.”
Qiao Lian immediately replied, “A mother never looks ugly to her son, why would he think that you are stupid? And from what I see, Auntie, you ain’t stupid at all! Look, you have significantly improved from my brief explanation.”
Xia Yehua was excited. “Young lady, you have such a sweet tongue! I really like you! What’s your name?”
“My surname is Qiao.”
“Then I shall address you as Xiao Qiao!” Xia Yehua amiably held onto her hand and continued, “Xiao Qiao, I feel as if I have seen you in my previous life, you feel familiar!”
Qiao Lian: …
Xia Yehua eyes reddened. “You don’t know how tough my life is! My son is not obedient at all. When I went to Europe for a holiday, he took the chance to get married. When I returned, I nagged at him and he sent me out to stay alone, just because he is worried that his wife would be upset!”
Qiao Lian frowned. “That’s too much of him!”
Xia Yehua nodded. “He always gives me the black face and is really arrogant. Sometimes, I have a strong urge to send him back into my womb and reform him!”
As Xia Yehua spoke, the angrier Qiao Lian got. She truly wished she had the chance to be filial to her parents, but she would never have the chance to.
Thus, she strongly disliked it when children were unfilial to their parents. She grabbed Xia Yehua and asked, “Auntie, where does he live? Let’s go over and seek justice for you! I’m a reporter, he would definitely be afraid of me.”
