Chapter 86 – Leave This to Me!
Shen Liangchuan’s enormous hands, which were holding onto her waist, slightly tensed up.
At this moment, her confession was like a large slap to his face.
Eight years ago, their relationship had just shattered. However, had she already fallen in love with him as a celebrity?
No, to phrase this in another way, it meant that their initial relationship, which he had kept in his memory, was nothing to her.
All his heart palpitations disappeared along with Qiao Lian’s words. The only feelings left were mockery and awkwardness.
Shen Liangchuan narrowed his eyes. He could clearly feel the temper within his body slowly awakeniing, making him wish that he could tear her apart.
His large hands forcefully lifted her and threw her onto the bed. He then pressed his body on her.
Just when he was about to punish her, he suddenly saw her eyes, which were overwhelmed with fear. She shouted at him, “Mr. Shen?!”
He violently jerked upwards upon hearing her words.
He suddenly thought of her acute appendicitis.
He tightly clenched his fists. Afraid that he would hurt her again, he immediately got up and turned to leave!
Only when the door of the room violently closed, did Qiao Lian, who was lying on the bed, regain her consciousness.
She widened her eyes. She did not understand why the obviously flirtatious atmosphere had swiftly changed in the blink of an eye.
He had been fooling around with her, which was why she had been brave enough to say those words.
However, why had he suddenly raged violently? She was completely baffled. His temper was truly unpredictable!
Qiao Lian sat on the bed for a while and calmed herself down. Her cell phone rang again.
When she picked the call up, she heard Xiao Ye’s intentionally soft voice saying, “Sister Qiao, I just saw Best Actor Shen angrily leave. The only person who could make him flare up like that is definitely Mrs. Shen.”
Only then did Qiao Lian remember that Xiao Ye was still waiting for her downstairs. She immediately said, “I will go and find you now.”
She hung up the phone and changed her clothes.
From the back door, she walked outside and then quietly snuck to the front door. After meeting up with Xiao Ye, the both of them stayed awake the entire night, hiding behind a nearby rock.
Xiao Ye excitedly said, “Mrs. Shen is definitely inside. We are definitely going to uncover a huge scoop!”
As she finished speaking, her mouth twitched. “But we have it tough as reporters. Look at people like Mrs. Shen, who can sleep on their comfortable beds. However, we are toughing it out by hiding outside!” She sighed.
Qiao Lian thought, “I also want to hide inside and sleep. If I had known this would happen, I would have carried both my bed and my blanket downstairs.”
The both of them slowly endured the entire night by talking with each other.
The next day, even at eight in the morning, only two servants left the mansion to buy vegetables. They did not see anybody even remotely resembling Mrs. Shen.
Xiao Ye hung her head, looking like a shrivelled tomato. She followed Qiao Lian outside.
Qiao Lian yawned as she walked. She slapped Xiao Ye’s shoulders encouragingly and said, “When there’s a will, there’s a way. Don’t look so down.”
Xiao Ye nodded.
The both of them walked out of the mansion’s neighborhood and entered the garden. Just when they were intending to continue walking, they suddenly heard Xia Yehua’s voice. “Xiao Qiao!”
She walked over and looked at Qiao Lian, saying, “Look at you! Why do you look like you haven’t slept for an entire night?”
Xiao Ye blurted out, “Of course we didn’t sleep. As reporters, it’s normal for us to stay awake for the whole night. The only unfortunate thing is that even after staying awake for an entire night, we still did not uncover any of Best Actor Shen’s scandals!”
“Best Actor Shen?” Xia Yehua arched her eyebrows and instantly laughed. “You are trying to uncover Shen Liangchuan’s scandals?”
As she looked at Qiao Lian’s fatigued expression, Xia Yehua only felt conflicted between Xiao Qiao and her son for a fraction of a second. Her heart aching, she immediately said, “Leave this to me!”
