Chapter 43: Long Time No See, Villa
Upon entering the living room, she realized that Shen Liangchuan was not home. She felt as if she was a guest as she sat waiting on the sofa for him to arrive.
After about half an hour, she finally heard the car whistle. She stood up quickly and looked at the door, flustered.
Shen Liangchuan took long strides in.
He was wearing a casual sweater, with both of his hands in the pockets of his pants. His face was expressionless and he looked as alienated and cold as usual.
When he entered, he seemed to have seen her, but his steps stopped for a second before he continued looking forward.
Qiao Lian bit her lips and hesitated for a moment before saying, “Mr. Shen-”
Before she could finish her words, he walked up the stairs.
Qiao Lian was left stunned on the spot, but as she recalled about her hospitalized younger brother, she stomped her feet and followed after him.
The door of the master bedroom wasn’t closed and as she walked in, she realized that it was empty. Then, she heard the sound of running water from the bathroom.
Although she had only stayed with Shen Liangchuan for four days, she had long realized that he was obsessive when it came to cleanliness. The first thing he did when he got home was to bathe.
But now, was she supposed to stay there and wait for him to be done? Or should she go outside to wait for him?
After debating with herself for awhile, she ended up sitting on the sofa in the master bedroom.
Since they were already in that kind of relationship, what was there to hide?
After awhile, the sound of running water finally stopped. Shen Liangchuan exited the bathroom with a towel around him.
He was holding another towel, with which he dried his hair. The aura he gave made Qiao Lian feel uneasy, as she was seated. She then stood up and spoke formally, “Mr. Shen-”
It was after she spoke then that Shen Liangchuan seemed to realize her existence and lightly looked up at her.
Qiao Lian continued, “Mr. Shen, may I know why is the card you’ve given me frozen?”
Shen Liangchuan raised his brows, “Frozen?”
Qiao Lian nodded her head, “Yes, could I trouble you to help me check on what had happened? I need this sum of money urgently.”
He replied emotionlessly and continued drying his hair.
Qiao Lian couldn’t help but urge him, “Mr. Shen?”
Shen Liangchuan looked over and said, “You want me to check for you when I’m in this state?”
Qiao Lian: …
Qiao Lian had no choice but to wait for him while he slowly dried his hair. She followed behind him, “Mr. Shen?”
“Let me put on my clothes first.”
After he was done wearing his clothes, he said, “Let’s eat first.”
In the dining hall, Qiao Lian sat with Shen Liangchuan and enthusiastically served him with food and soup.
When he ate, he ate gracefully but slow.
When he finally finished eating, before Qiao Lian could speak, his phone rang.
Shen Liangchuan spoke, “Allow me to pick up a call first.”
Then, he held his phone and went up to the study room on the second floor.
Qiao Lian finished her meal and anxiously waited for him downstairs. He would come back down after he finished his call, right?
One hour had passed and Shen Liangchuan had yet to return downstairs.
Qiao Lian couldn’t resist waiting anymore. Thus, she quietly went upstairs and stood outside the study room. She saw Shen Liangchuan holding onto his phone while seating behind the study table and saying, “Yes, ok, you can continue.”
Qiao Lian quietly moved backwards. Shen Liangchuan only looked up and put his phone down after she went back downstairs.
On his screen there was complete darkness. There wasn’t any caller id at all.
In the middle of the night, when Shen Liangchuan finally walked out of the study room, he searched around the villa and found that she had already fallen asleep on the sofa in the master bedroom.
