Chapter 2: Caught on the spot

Early morning, Qiao Lian’s alarm rang loudly.
Qiao Lian woke up with a start. Throwing back the covers, she jumped off the bed with her eyes closed. However, both her legs were aching and limp, causing her to plop down onto the floor on her butt.
She opened her eyes half-consciously and the first thing she saw was an expensive Persian carpet.
She was confused for a moment when realization suddenly hit her: She had married her Prince Charming.
After sitting on the floor and taking some time to digest the fact, she picked up her cell phone to turn off her alarm.
Subconsciously, she opened Weibo and took a glance at the trending searches. She would have never expected that the four impactful words “Actor Shen’s Secret Marriage” would meet her eyes!
Qiao Lian’s irises swelled in shock and was immediately wide awake. After she saw the contents of the Weibo post clearly, her hand trembled, and she almost dropped her phone.
It was only last night that Shen Liangchuan had warned her to keep their marriage a secret, but why was there a great uproar now?! Would he mistakenly believe that it was her who had leaked the news out?
Shen Liangchuan… Anyone who had interacted with him would know that he was a scary man. If you offended him, the consequences were dire.
“Knock, knock.” Knocking sounds came from the door, closely followed by the female caretaker’s emotionless voice saying, “Madam, Sir’s call.”
The voice made her heart leap up fiercely. It was indeed true that whatever you were afraid of always came true.
She bit her delicate red lips and could care less about the aching pain all over her body. She quickly put on her clothes and walked down to pick up the house phone. Taking a deep breath, she then used a soft and gentle voice to greet the caller.
Shen Liangchuan’s ice-cold voice floated over the phone. “I originally thought you were an obedient person.”
Sure enough, he did not trust her.
She slightly tightened her grip on the phone. Her heart felt as if it was being pricked by a needle as a sharp pain flashed by.
To him, she was merely a child-bearing tool. Thus, when trouble struck, the first person he doubted was her.
“It wasn’t me. Mr. Shen, please think about it. The money you have given me, you can also take away at anytime as you please. Why would I do something so stupid as to sabotage myself? You can go ahead and investigate. If the results show this has anything to do with me, I will accept any consequences!” Qiao Lian paused for a moment to sort out her feelings and replied in a calm voice.
Although she spoke with confidence, she still felt unsure about herself after she ended justifying herself.
The person on the other end of the phone remained silent, and it made her uneasiness increase by the second. She was not sure if Shen Liangchuan would trust her.
After a while, Shen Liangchuan finally replied, “I will check. However, if the reporters manage to capture and identify you as Mrs. Shen…”
The threatening tone he used triggered Qiao Lian, causing her to immediately respond without any tinge of hesitation, “If that happens, I will pack up and leave on my own accord!”
“I don’t wish to come across any trouble caused by you in the future.”
“Don’t worry, I-” The simple words and menacingly cold tone urged Qiao Lian to express her thoughts.
But before she was able to finish her sentence, he slammed the phone and hung up.
Qiao Lian’s words hung in midair as she stared at her phone in shock.
This man… was so ungentlemanly! It just did not conform to his image as the Prince Charming of many!
After hanging up the phone, Qiao Lian mindlessly drank the milk the caretaker had brought in and rested for a while. After a while, she put on a cap and went off to work.
As the news broke out, her intuition told her that there would be reporters camping outside. Choosing to be safe rather than sorry, she thus decided to leave through the back door. She only walked out of it after observing the area and ensuring that everything was normal.
However, when she just stepped out of the door, a few reporters suddenly appeared out of nowhere and surrounded her. They were repeatedly exclaiming, “Mrs. Shen!”
This bunch of reporters had really appeared out of nowhere, catching Qiao Lian off guard!
