Su Meimei widened her eyes in astonishment and stared at the two of them in disbelief.
After a pause, she finally spoke, “This- this is not possible…”
Qiao Lian could no longer be bothered with this raving lunatic.
Su Meimei had gotten her just punishment. She had been beaten up by Liu Zhixing’s wife and since then had had a difficult time.
As she got into the car, the man in the driver seat grumbled with annoyance, “Would I not know who my own wife is?”
However, his tone was light and laced with delight. At that moment, although Qiao Lian’s heart was heavy with the matter concerning her late parents, she found herself somewhat relaxing.
Unable to contain her amusement, she even burst out laughing.
Su Meimei, on the other hand, had turned a bright red.
Ignoring her altogether, Shen Liangchuan shut the car door, wound up the windows and started to drive away.
As they drove away, Qiao Lian could see that Su Meimei was still stunned and had not moved from where she was standing before.
By the time the car took an about-turn, she was gone.
At this point, Qiao Lian glanced at Shen Liangchuan and asked, “Why did you come here?”
Glancing down briefly, he said, “I have some matters to attend to in the afternoon and can’t pick you up after work. So I just dropped by earlier to see that everything’s alright.”
And then he looked at her questioningly. “You…”
Feigning an air of nonchalance, Qiao Lian replied, “Congratulate me! I’ve resigned!”
Shen Liangchuan immediately narrowed his eyes at her declaration.
He had known for some time about the unjust treatment Qiao Lian had received from her bosses at the news agency.
But this stubborn girl had insisted on sticking with the job. And now, she had resigned just like that.
Although extremely puzzled by this sudden change, he said, “Congratulations. I’ll take you home then.”
Qiao Lian nodded.
Following this, they fell silent.
The atmosphere in the car became slightly awkward.
Qiao Lian turned to look at the passing scenery outside.
She thought of the information that Su Meimei had leaked…
That was just Song Yuanxi causing trouble for her again.
Obviously Shen Liangchuan had heard what Su Meimei had said, yet he had remained silent on this matter.
The corner of her lips turned upwards in a bitter smile.
Her fingers enclosed her handbag in a tightened grip.
Shen Liangchuan stared at the road ahead as he drove.
However, he was paying full attention to the body language of the woman by his side.
What Su Meimei had said just then made him realize that Song Yuanxi had launched an attack without his knowledge, through the news agency.
He was livid at the discovery.
While he felt an urge to speak, he didn’t know what to say.
However, his eyes flashed with silent anger.
He should no longer indulge Song Yuanxi in her malicious acts.
And also because there was just no way to keep guard against her actions.
He could not let this cycle of harm, making amends and isolation, repeat itself endlessly.
He needed to actively do something to stop it.
Today was a special day, and it was not an appropriate day to deal with Song Yuanxi.
Their car entered the villa grounds.
Shen Liangchuan stayed to have lunch with Qiao Lian.
He got his things together at one in the afternoon and then, bidding goodbye to Qiao Lian, left the house.
Qiao Lian pursed her lips as she watched his back view.
To her, leaving her job at the news agency was a happy occasion.
She had really wanted to celebrate this new phase of her life.
However, she didn’t have many friends in Beijing and Shen Liangchuan had gone out.
She went to the bedroom and lay down for a little while. But she found herself unable to sleep, since she had never had the habit of taking afternoon naps.
Thinking that she might as well get out of the house, she got changed.
Just as she went downstairs, she heard a car driving up to the apartment.
She went out the door immediately to take a look. It was Xia Yehua, and she was just getting out of the car.
