Chapter 54 – Woof, Woof, Woof
Qiao Lian was so angry that her chest started heaving and she placed both hands on her waist!
It would have been one thing if the person who secretly ate her noodles had finished the entire bowl, but the person who had eaten her noodles had also left some soup behind! What was the meaning of this? Was the person taunting her?
Zhang Hong, who was currently wiping the table, responded with a sneer, “You are so ignorant. Who would secretly eat your noodles? However, Ms. Qiao, can you please wash the bowl after you have used it in the middle of the night to secretly eat?”
Qiao Lian frowned and said, “I cooked two bowls of noodles yesterday and intended to eat the remaining bowl this morning. If nobody touched it, why is there nothing left now?”
Zhang Hong pursed her lips and said, “Who knows?”
“You don’t know? Then could it be that a rat or a stray dog secretly ate my noodles?”
As she finished speaking, she heard a coughing sound coming from the second floor.
She turned her head and saw Shen Liangchuan standing at the stairway.
Qiao Lian had originally wanted to continue speaking, but the words got instantly stuck in her throat.
Had he heard what she had said just now?
Ahhh, could he have thought that her quarreling with the servants over a bowl of noodles was shameful behavior? In addition, were her mentions of rats and stray dogs too boorish in nature?
As she mulled over this, Shen Liangchuan finally walked downstairs.
Zhang Hong went to stand in front of Shen Liangchuan, attempting to kiss up to him. “Mr. Shen, Caretaker Li just placed a call. The Madam is asking for your presence in the old manor so that you can eat breakfast with her.”
Shen Liangchuan nodded and took his jacket from a servant’s outstretched hands. After wearing it, he calmly walked to the front door.
When she saw his indifferent expression, Qiao Lian breathed a sigh of relief.
He probably hadn’t heard what she had said then?
However, after he put on his shoes, he suddenly stopped dead in his tracks and turned his head. His low voice emerged and said, “Ms. Qiao.”
Qiao Lian hurriedly said, “Yes?”
“What is the surname of the director of
Qiao Lian said bewildered, “It’s Wang!”
“I can’t hear you clearly.”
Qiao Lian yelled, “It’s Wang, Wang, Wang!”
Shen Liangchuan was only satisfied after he heard that. He softly said “oh” affirmingly, and then walked out the door.
Qiao Lian said, “… So, what is the meaning of this? As the lead actor of
, surely he knows what the director’s surname is?”
Also, why did she have the feeling that she had just mimicked the sound of a dog barking?
Qiao Lian cleared this strange thought from her mind. She made sure that Shen Liangchuan had left the mansion and then turned around to look at Zhang Hong.
Zhang Hong stood up and looked at her impatiently. “Ms. Qiao, you are screaming and shouting over a bowl of noodles. Have you no shame? You have all your limbs intact, so if you wanted to eat, couldn’t you prepare the food yourself?”
Her haughty expression caused Qiao Lian to smile grimly and there was a flash of coldness in her eyes. “Zhang Hong, are you sure you want to give me a hard time?”
Zhang Hong smiled coldly, lowered her head and continued wiping the table, saying, “Ms. Qiao, I do not understand your words. What do you mean by giving you a hard time?”
She looked at another servant and said, “Oh my goodness, some people are just oblivious. They clearly enjoy undeserved fame but still act all high and mighty, hah!”
Qiao Lian had to breathe in deeply after hearing her words.
Without saying any more, she immediately walked into the kitchen, took out a bottle of milk and walked in front of Zhang Hong.
She suddenly smiled and tilted her wrist. In an instant, all the milk in the bottle gushed out and was spilt across the entire carpet!
The living room’s carpet had a decorative pattern consisting of alternating red and white colors. Cleaning up all the milk from the carpet would be no easy feat.
Zhang Hong’s eyes narrowed. “You-”
Qiao Lian gave an insincere smile and said, “Oops, I’m so sorry that I did not hold onto the bottle firmly. Please excuse me. All of you should clean this up today before Mr. Shen returns tonight. If he sees this mess, tell me, who will he blame?”
