Qiao Lian almost choked on what he said.
It felt strange seeing Su Penghao behave this way.
Su Penghao twitched his lips and said, “She asked me out for a drink, to share our perspectives on gaming. We’ve known each other for a while and she did try to poach me. However, she hasn’t tried again after I rejected her.”
Purple Fairy did invite him to join their team and he hesitated at the time.
If Shen Liangchuan had not beaten him in the challenge, Su Penghao would have probably joined the King fighting team by now.
Qiao Lian grimaced and said, “Purple Fairy isn’t as simple as you think. You just have to be more careful.”
Su Penghao rolled his eyes and said curtly, “I think you’re the one with ulterior motives, assuming the worst of everyone else. Purple Fairy is the gamer Xiao Qiao, and although I haven’t had much contact with her in real life, with Xiao Qiao…”
He paused at this point, then gave a cold humph and continued, “Don’t worry, I’m not that stupid! Okay, let’s start the match.”
With this said, he walked straight past Qiao Lian and went into the room.
The Godfather gave Su Penghao a puzzled look and asked, “Zombie Leader, it’s almost lunchtime, didn’t you eat before coming back here?”
Su Penghao replied, “She has a banquet to attend… Okay, I’ve just ordered some food. In the meantime we can play a match or two, let’s begin.”
Seeing that the team was going to start their training, Qiao Lian shook her head and sat down on the sofa. At this point her cell phone rang.
She looked down at the screen and realized it was… Fan Jie.
They had not been in contact since the time Shen Liangchuan had threatened him into not accepting her exclusive interview.
She wondered why he was calling her now.
She picked up the call and Fan Jie’s voice came from the other end, “Sister-in-law, where are you?”
Qiao Lian’s eyes wandered around the room. “What’s up?”
“We’re having dinner. Would you like to join us?”
Qiao Lian paused for a moment. “I’m not—”
Before she could get past a few words, a deep voice came through, “Where are you?”
It was Shen Liangchuan.
“At the team’s villa,” Qiao Lian replied.
“Okay, I’ll come and get you.”
Qiao Lian was stunned for a moment. “What? I don’t think I’ll go. Why don’t you go ahead? I—”
“That’ll be all.”
After those words, Shen Liangchuan hung up.
Twenty minutes later, Shen Liangchuan turned up at the team’s villa.
After getting in the car, Qiao Lian realized that Fan Jie was in the backseat. The moment he saw her, he exclaimed, “My sister-in-law, it’s been such a long time!”
Qiao Lian grimaced at the overly enthusiastic greeting. “I think it hasn’t even been a month?”
Fan Jie sighed. “A day without meeting feels like three years, as the saying goes. So a month would feel like 90 years!”
Qiao Lian was speechless.
She turned to Shen Liangchuan and whispered, “What on earth are you guys up to?”
Shen Liangchuan replied calmly, “There’s a gathering with friends and they insisted I bring my…”
He paused, gave her a look and said pointedly, “Spouse.”
That word made her feel warm inside.
It seemed she had become Shen Liangchuan’s spouse.
She lowered her head to hide the huge, silly grin now spreading across her face.
Soon they arrived at a private restaurant. Shen Liangchuan parked the car and the three of them made their way into the private room.
This private gathering was indeed an all-star event, though there were only a few of them.
