Chapter 1271: End Game (11)
Lu Nanze’s words were the last straw that broke the camel’s back, completely infuriating Shen Liangchuan.
No longer able to suppress his anger past this point, he finally unleashed it and threw a punch at the corner of the other man’s mouth.
“You bastard!” Not one to usually curse and swear, Shen Liangchuan couldn’t help himself in this instance.
Because what Lu Nanze had done was too despicable. It had caused a rift between him and Qiao Lian that had lasted eight years.
And even now, he still felt the matter was unsettling.
At the time, he had left the Shen family penniless.
Hence, when Qiao Lian went back on her word later and the team club demanded 100 000, he no longer had the money.
He had only been a fresh high school graduate and, without thinking, he had taken on all the pressure with Soul Fighter. That was why he had gone on the internet and into the gaming platform to look for Qiao Lian.
He had hesitated at first, not quite able to decide if he should ask that money from her.
But at the same time, Qiao Lian had suddenly asked him if he could return the 100 000 that she had invested to start up the team club.
The reason she had given him was valid. “Would you return the 100 000 I gave you? I need it for an emergency.”
He hadn’t thought too much about it, he also didn’t doubt it was true.
In the end, to return the money and, on top of that, needing to make more money for the breach of contract penalty, he and Soul Fighter took this task upon their own shoulders.
Later on, Soul Fighter was in an accident and he was sent to the hospital.
During that time, he had plans to meet up with her.
When he arrived at the meeting point, he overheard her talking to her friend. It appeared she had reserved a purse that had cost a 100 000.
He was infuriated at that point.
In order to save up that sum of money, he and Soul Fighter had paid with their blood.
But in the end?
The money had been to her just a matter of buying a purse.
Had she asked the 100 000 back from him just to buy a purse?
He was so angry that he left in a huff, without even talking to her.
Later on, even right up till this very day…
Even though he and Qiao Lian had made up, even though he had gotten past his own inner demons where Soul Fighter was concerned, whenever he thought of this matter, there was a shadow over it.
And now he finally understood.
Qiao Lian had not been at fault.
From the beginning right up till the end, she had not known that the team club had been in need of funds.
From the beginning till the end, she had never known that Qiao Yiyi had used her account to communicate with him, to ask for the money.
And even less so would she have known that all the reasons that he had for hating her were in fact never valid.
He had misunderstood her.
Misunderstood her for eight whole years.
And for the same reason, he almost missed his second chance with her.
At this point of time, he was shaken to the core.
He was shaken by everything that had happened in the past.
Fortunately, Lu Nanze had told him all of these things now.
Otherwise, he would have never known that the Xiao Qiao he had hated wasn’t at all the woman who he held close to his heart now.
With this, the last bit of estrangement between them had vanished.
At this thought, Shen Liangchuan lowered his gaze and looked at the woman lying beside him.
She was sleeping quietly. In the still darkness, even her breathing was almost inaudible.
Like a little kitten, she calmed his heart.
He reached out and embraced her waist.
Leaning his head towards her, he lightly planted a kiss on her face.
Xiao Qiao, thank you for being willing to come back to me.
