Qiao Lian was lying on the bed. She had to stay in the hospital for a few days to be monitored.
Shen Liangchuan was handling some documents and had to make a call. Hence, taking his cell phone with him, he walked out to the balcony.
With little else to do, Qiao Lian was browsing Weibo when suddenly the ward door was opened with a loud creak.
She casually looked up, smiling and saying, “That was fast—”
Before she could finish and when she looked at the doorway, she realized it wasn’t Shen Liangchuan, but Qiao Yiyi.
Her eyes were full of viciousness and she was emanating an intense hatred as she looked at Qiao Lian. She said, “My dad has been taken away by the police, you must be gloating now, right?”
Qiao Lian narrowed her eyes and looked away. “Qiao Yiyi, this is the hospital. Please get out.”
“Get out? I’m not going to get out!”
Qiao Yiyi sneered and continued, “Are you feeling guilty? Or are you afraid? Qiao Lian, he is your uncle, do you have to be so heartless?”
“Heartless?” Qiao Lian was almost speechless.
“And you don’t think it’s heartless to send thugs to kidnap me?”
Qiao Yiyi replied immediately, “We were only out to scare you! Look, aren’t you unharmed?”
So just because she was unharmed, it made the act justifiable?
Qiao Lian had never come across this sort of argument.
Staring at Qiao Yiyi, she asked, “Then what about Lu Nanze?”
Even Lu Nanze had been beaten up badly. She couldn’t imagine what would have happened if she alone had been abducted.
She thought of the behavior of that man with the braid.
She was so angry that her chest felt congested.
Qiao Yiyi’s eyes were on fire. “What happened to Second Brother was an accident, that’s a separate matter from yours! You are unharmed, so why won’t you let my dad off?
Qiao Lian cast her gaze down, feeling that trying to reason with Qiao Yiyi was a completely futile exercise. She pointed at the door and said, “Get out.”
“Qiao Lian, don’t you dare be so arrogant!” Qiao Yiyi bit her lip forcefully. Seeing Qiao Lian’s expression infuriated her and she continued, “I’m telling you now, Second Brother will not just stand and watch our family get into trouble!”
She held her abdomen and smirked. “Uncle Lu is already here. I don’t believe that Second Brother will abandon my father, abandon me, abandon his own child, and abandon his father!”
She narrowed her eyes and added, “Qiao Lian, just you watch!”
After saying that, Qiao Yiyi walked out.
Qiao Lian frowned. For some reason, she was suddenly worried about Lu Nanze.
He had broken two of his ribs and his condition was serious now. Could his condition worsen if things blew up?
At this thought, Qiao Lian threw her blanket aside, put on her shoes and walked out of the room.
Just as she did so, Shen Liangchuan returned from his phone call. Qiao Lian was about to say something when Shen Liangchuan interrupted with a serious expression, “I just saw that Lu Nanze’s father has turned up. Let’s go and have a look.”
Qiao Lian nodded.
The two of them went to Lu Nanze’s ward. As they approached, they heard voices of people arguing.
She halted for a moment and exchanged a glance with Shen Liangchuan. Then they continued to walk towards the room.
As they were about to enter the room, they heard Dad Lu hollering, “You unfilial son, are you trying to get me into trouble now? All because of a woman. Don’t you want your father? Don’t you want your child anymore?!”
Beside the two men, Qiao Yiyi stood with her head lowered and crying most pitifully.
