Chapter 79 – In Hot Pursuit
Xiao Ye was so nervous that she said, “Qiao- Ms. Qiao, we’re dead meat now!”
Qiao Lian wanted to swear as well.
She was determined not to let them discover that it was her who had been following them.
Making up her mind, Qiao Lian refused to roll up the car’s windows. Instead, she said in a low voice, “It’s nothing!”
Song Cheng froze. He had personally come to knock on this car’s windows. Did the person inside not understand rules?
Did she really think that he was here to discuss the tailgating issue?
Song Cheng frowned and was about to speak, when he realized that the car had rushed forward with a whoosh. All traces of the car quickly disappeared.
Song Cheng: …
When he returned to the car, Song Cheng touched his nose and said, “The paparazzi nowadays are so cowardly. How will they ever catch a scoop with such an attitude?!”
As he finished speaking, he smiled at Shen Liangchuan. Attempting to curry favor with him, he said, “Brother Shen, these people aren’t like Ms. Qiao at all.”
When he heard this, Shen Liangchuan slightly raised his eyes.
The words “Ms. Qiao” had successfully diverted his attention from the script.
Song Cheng was nagging in his ear. “If Ms. Qiao was here, she would have definitely exited the car and start to berate me loudly, asking me to pay for her car. I have never seen a girl who is as brave as her—someone who wants to go to work the day after a major surgery.”
If this had been any other time, Shen Liangchuan would have definitely found him noisy. However, he was strangely quiet today.
As the people in the car continued talking, the driver suddenly exclaimed in confusion, “That silver Volkswagen is in front of us! How did she know that we would turn in this direction?”
When Song Cheng heard his words, he anxiously looked over and then shouted profusely, “Damn it! The news about us going to the shopping mall today must have leaked. Which company are these paparazzi from and why are they so competent?”
Inside the silver Volkswagen currently in front…
Xiao Ye widened her eyes and looked behind her. “Ms. Qiao, how did they chase up to us so quickly? Are they not letting us go? We clearly did not uncover any scoops. Look, the distance between us and them is only a few meters wide!”
Qiao Lian was also going crazy. Could it be that Shen Liangchuan was really this petty?
No, she could not be caught.
At the next traffic light crossing, she turned to the left. The car behind hers also turned to the left.
She drove further and then took a left turn. The car behind hers also did the same.
Xiao Ye got even more afraid. “Qiao- Ms. Qiao, are they planning to kill us?”
Qiao Lian desperately wanted to sew Xiao Ye’s mouth shut. At a straightaway, she suddenly increased the speed of the car. She continuously overtook four to five vehicles before she was able to lose the nanny van following behind her.
Xiao Ye excitedly grabbed her arm and said, “Ms. Qiao, you are so brave!”
Qiao Lian also sighed intensely in relief. She delightedly lifted her chin and said, “I had to be brave!”
Xiao Ye said regretfully, “However, we won’t be able to follow Best Actor Shen today.”
“Don’t worry, there will be plenty of chances in the future”, Qiao Lian consoled her without thinking.
Xiao Ye immediately said excitedly, “Ms. Qiao, do you see the shopping mall in front? Let me tell you, everybody inside is a high-profile person. All the famous celebrities go there to buy clothes. I know that beside this mall there is an outlet store. There is a place selling mala hotpot in the building, so we should go there to eat!”
Qiao Lian was also hungry. She said, “Are you treating?”
Qiao Lian found a roadside to park her car. Then, she followed Xiao Ye out of the car and was about to walk away, when she realized that Xiao Ye’s body was suddenly frozen.
Qiao Lian asked, “What is it?”
Xiao Ye was on the verge of tears. “Qiao- Ms. Qiao, How did they catch up to us?”
She turned her head, following Xiao Ye’s gaze, and saw Shen Liangchuan’s nanny van parked a short distance away.
