Chapter 29 – There Is Still a Reporter Here!
At this moment, Qiao Lian wished that she could rip apart Su Meimei!
Could this person be any more stupid?
The reason why she was making such a racket now must be because she thought that Qiao Lian was there to snatch her credit.
But there were so many stars there! Why couldn’t they just each mind their own business?
Qiao Lian bit her lip. She already knew how furious Shen Liangchuan’s gaze was at that moment, even without looking around.
He hated paparazzi the most, especially the pestering ones that would use unscrupulous means to uncover a scoop.
At this moment, he must be extremely disappointed in me, right?
Oh no, that’s wrong. It’s not like he ever placed any sort of hope in me before, but he likely hates me even more now!
However, regardless of all that had happened, she had to first resolve the issue right in front of her.
She raised her head, reached out her arm around Su Meimei’s shoulder and smiled. She greeted her, saying, “Ah, Su Meimei, we haven’t seen each other in such a long time! How coincidental, are you a waitress in this hotel?”
Su Meimei frowned. While she was still thinking of what to say in response, Qiao Lian lowered her voice so that only the two of them could hear what she said next, “If you still dare to speak loudly, I will tell everybody that you are a reporter!”
Su Meimei bit her lip in anger.
Qiao Lian continued to smile and said, “It’s no big deal if I get kicked out. After all, nobody knows that I am here today. However, if you leave without obtaining any scoop at all, tell me, what will you tell our colleagues at the news agency when you see them tomorrow?”
Su Meimei was rendered speechless by hate.
Qiao Lian patted her shoulders, smiled, and said, “Old friend, let’s meet up again once this party has ended.”
Then, she waved at Su Meimei and turned to leave.
As she turned around, she could not stop herself from shooting a glance at Shen Liangchuan. He was still standing quietly at the same spot. The light from the sparkling glasses located on his side reflected on his back, making him look especially ethereal. However, this also served to make the darkness in his eyes look even more scary.
As she met his gaze, Qiao Lian’s heart sank.
She shifted her gaze and hurriedly walked towards a crowd of people.
She stood in the middle of the crowd, dazed. Time seemed to slow down. Best Actor Shen’s gaze seemed to follow her, and she would occasionally look over at him. He seemed to be issuing a warning to her—
get out of here now!
Qiao Lian pretended to not understand his intent and smiled awkwardly at him.
After another half an hour, she noticed a commotion happening nearby.
Someone had grabbed Su Meimei and restrained her arms. He was holding her cell phone and asked her cautiously, “What are you taking pictures of?”
Simultaneously, everyone in the banquet hall looked over in their direction.
Su Meimei was so shocked that her entire body was trembling. She said, “N-nothing at all.”
“Nothing at all? Then what is this video? And what is this photo? Security! Where is security? There is something wrong with this waitress!”
Su Meimei, on the verge of tears, said, “I-I was just snapping some pictures randomly.”
“Are you taking me for a fool? Paparazzi nowadays seize every opportunity for a scoop!”
Security rushed over and confiscated Su Meimei’s cell phone. Then, they marched her towards the exit.
Su Meimei’s eyes were already red from crying, and she didn’t dare to resist. However, she suddenly thought of an idea, and started to struggle fiercely!
“There’s another reporter here! It’s the person that was just talking with me! Qiao Lian! Come out!”
At this moment, Qiao Lian wished she could disappear into thin air, even though she was already hidden in the crowd. She really wanted to kill Su Meimei!
She wants to drag me down with her just because she couldn’t get a scoop?
Qiao Lian lowered her head and tried to be as inconspicuous as possible. She hoped that the people surrounding her would not recognize her before security could drag Su Meimei away.
However, her wrist was suddenly grabbed by someone, “Here she is!”
Qiao Lian felt like snapping her head off when she realized that the person grabbing her wrist was none other than Yang Lingsi!
