LRWML: Chapter-8


PREV | CONTENT | NEXT


Shen Qing Huan looked at the numbers written in Arabic on the exclusive elevator of the private dining room.

Shen Qing Huan rarely smiled or showed her true emotions. She was a person who was used to preparing in advance.

She had already done her research on Jian Fan. If he didn’t appear, it wouldn’t matter but if he appeared then she was confident to make him her ally.

But not everything could be calculated…

Shen Qing Huan recalled Jian Fan’s slight frown and bit her lip lightly.

She didn’t know what went wrong.

In the beginning, Jian Fan didn’t reject her.

He probably didn’t know that he was used as a “tool man”, or maybe he didn’t seem to care whether he was used or not. 

Shen Qing Huan knew what Jian Fan wanted from her, so after confessing her purpose, she openly stated that if he needed her or her family to come forward to help him, she would cooperate.

Listening to it, Jian Fan didn’t show any unpleasant expression on his expressionless face. 

In the upper-class circle, Shen Qing Huan had already heard the gossip saying that while negotiating with Jian Fan, it was difficult for others to know what he was really thinking.

Shen Qing Huan guessed that Jian Fan didn’t reject her proposal in the beginning, so there was still a chance. 

So she continued to indulge and speak.

After Shen Qing Huan exposed her trump cards according to her original plan to show her value to him.

So that Jian Fan could agree to help her take revenge on both Xu An Shen and Pei Qing Ya.

In fact, according to her plan, Jian Fan didn’t need to do anything at all. He just had to play the role of an ordinary “boyfriend”.

Or sometimes, he needed to play the role of a nominal “fiancee”.

Everything was calculated.

But Shen Qing Huan didn’t know why the result was entirely different.

Shen Qing Huan frowned and her eyes were slightly contemplative.

The negotiations suddenly went strange in the middle.

It was Jian Fan who interrupted her negotiation and suddenly began to inquire about her hobbies and daily life.

For a moment, Shen Qing Huan was stunned.

If it hadn’t been for Jian Fan’s unsympathetic and cold voice, she would have somewhat doubted whether Jian Fan was interested in her.

Considering that the other party was a “long-term partner”, Shen Qing Huan obediently answered the questions with a gentle smile on her face.

Shen Qing Huan was basically a boring person, after thinking for a while, she only gave out some words dryly.

“Work. Making money.”

Jian Fan became silent for a while, and Yu Guang seemed to unconsciously glance at the location next to her.

Jian Fan slightly leaned back and squinted his eyes.

With a low smile, Jian Fan said, “It seems Miss Shen has a hobby of reading.”

“It’s better to talk about your opinion on this author.”

In an instant, the eyes of the two men fell on the author’s name on the cover of the book.

[Strawberry]

A famous fairy-tale writer in X ​​country, although the person had few published works, her first work was famous globally. 

After that, the value of Strawberry suddenly rose, but there was very little information about her online.

It was rumored that Strawberry was an urban beauty who had a bad past. 

There are few rumors that Strawberry was a rich woman who idly watched the sunrise and the sunset or some rumors were that Strawberry was a housewife who had been overworked by life…

No matter what versions, Strawberry was always rumored as a gloomy character.

Because Strawberry mostly wrote black fairy tales. Most of her works revealed the tragic colors of life.

The protagonist in her story wasn’t a happy prince and gentle princess, but mostly cruel monsters and bad witches.

Naturally, the ending was mostly not good, even if there was a good ending, the protagonist’s heart wasn’t truly happy. In the end, they were more or less detached from the world.

Therefore, the characters in Strawberry’s works were most liked and disliked by the readers’ at the same time.

Shen Qing Huan looked at Jian Fan and wanted to make sure whether he was really interested in Strawberry, or he took the opportunity to test her literary talent, or he just mentioned it casually.

In fact, Shen Qing Huan was Strawberry’s diehard fan.

She was of the earliest fans, and her evaluation of Strawberry was different from that of the public.

Shen Qing Huan subconsciously glanced at the fairy tale book that she had cherished for a long time.

After thinking for a moment, she decided to follow her heart and speak her true thoughts, even if Jian Fan didn’t agree, it didn’t matter.

As a result… 

After Shen Qing Huan said “Strawberry is a gentle person”, Jian Fan’s expression suddenly changed.

It was so obvious on his face.

For the first time, Shen Qing Huan had seen any emotion on Jian Fan’s face, and it wasn’t in a bad direction.

Because Jian Fan’s face suddenly became colder, and he said, “It seems that I have overestimated Miss Shen.”
