Shen Qinglan’s expression froze. The other party even knew about this competition and the exhibition next year. It seemed that she knew very well about her.
For some reason, Shen Qinglan felt something was wrong, as if something was beyond her control.
Shen Xitong looked at Shen Qinglan, who had lowered her eyes and was saying nothing, thinking that the other party was envious of Leng Qingqiu knowing her, the smile in her eyes became more and more smug.
In fact, Shen Xitong didn’t like Leng Qingqiu’s paintings, but her family liked it, and in order to please them, she pretended to like it.
In an apartment somewhere in the capital, the woman was calling someone with a mobile phone in her hand.
“Yes, I have already found a chance to meet the person from the Shen family. She didn’t doubt my identity and decided that I was Leng Qingqiu… I understand that I will slowly get to know their family.”
The woman’s tone was respectful, she seemed to be a little afraid of the person who was talking to her, and there was a hint of doubt in her expression, “It’s just that I don’t understand, why do I have to put so much effort into pretending to be Leng Qingqiu and get close to the Shen family?”
As long as Daniel stood up to say a word about whether she was Leng Qingqiu or not, she would be exposed, and everything they had done before would be in vain. If so, what was the point of doing this now? The woman did not understand.
The person on the other side didn’t seem to mean to explain it to her, but just said indifferently, “That is none of your business.” Then hung up the phone.
The woman’s body couldn’t help shaking when she heard the feminine but cold voice, looking at the phone with a puzzled expression.
A month passed in a flash, Fu Hengyi had been away for almost a month, Shen Qinglan was sitting on the balcony, looking at the pattering rain outside the window, there was something called missing which could be seen in her expression.
Shen Qinglan held a book in her hand, but she hadn’t turned a page for a long time.
The phone rang suddenly, and a flash of joy flashed in Shen Qinglan’s eyes, then she quickly picked up the phone. When she saw the number on it, an imperceptible disappointment flashed across her eyes, as her slender fingers swiped across the screen.
“Hey, Fang Tong.”
“Qinglan, what are you doing?” Fang Tong asked, his voice a little muffled.
Shen Qinglan’s eyes moved, “At home.”
“Can I come to you?”
After hanging up the phone for less than half an hour, the doorbell of Shen Qinglan’s house rang. Shen Qinglan got up to open the door. It was indeed Fang Tong.
Her mood seemed to be a little low, Fang Tong followed Shen Qinglan into the room, and sat on the sofa without speaking.
Shen Qinglan went to pour her a glass of warm water and handed it to her, Fang Tong took it, but didn’t drink it, she just held it in her hand.
She didn’t speak, and Shen Qinglan just sat aside and didn’t speak. She was a very patient person.
“Qinglan, do you think it’s really that important to have family members?” After a long time, Fang Tong spoke, her voice still muffled.
Shen Qinglan’s eyes flashed lightly, “This question is a matter of opinion.”
“Yesterday my father came back, and at dinner, I told my parents that I had a boyfriend…” Fang Tong recalled the scene last night and told Shen Qing Lan everything that happened eloquently.
Fang Tong’s father, Fang Chengzhi’s transfer order came down a month ago. He completed the handover work ahead of schedule and just returned to his home in Beijing at noon yesterday.
When Fang Chengzhi came back, Fang Tong and her mother Fu Fanghua were very happy, and when Fang Tong saw her father coming back, she also thought of bringing Ding Minghui home to meet her parents.
Originally, she wanted to find a suitable opportunity, but this opportunity came when she was having dinner in the evening.
The family was happy and harmonious at the dinner table. Fang Chengzhi was usually busy with work on weekdays. So, he basically stayed in Linshi and rarely came back. Even if Fu Fanghua often took Fang Tong to Linshi, the family gathered less and were separated more. Now, he had finally transferred and returned to the capital, Fang Chengzhi said that he was happy to be able to stay with his family in the future.
He was transferred to work in Linshi. This job lasted five or six years. His daughter had grown from a little girl to a big flower-like girl like. Looking at his daughter’s beautiful profile, Fang Chengzhi felt very emotional. Thinking of what an old friend had said to him a few days ago, he turned to look at his wife with a smile.
“Fanghua, take Tongtong to the mall tomorrow to buy two set of clothes, girls should dress up more beautifully.”
Fang Tong tilted her head, “Dad, why are you being so good to me all of a sudden?”
Fang Chengzhi feigned anger, “Am I bad to you usually?”
Fang Tong smiled ingratiatingly, “Of course not, but I’m a little flattered as you’re being very nice to me today, dad, honestly, what are you hiding from me?”
Originally, she just asked casually, but she didn’t expect Fang Chengzhi to really nod his head.
“There are some things, the day after tomorrow, your Uncle Li will be a guest at home.”
“Which Uncle Li?” Fang Tong asked.
“It’s your Uncle Li, Wei Li. He and your father are old friends. They went to the countryside together to be educated youths. It’s just that your Uncle Li went to sea to do business, and the whole family is not in the capital. In the past few years, there has been less contact.” Fu Fanghua answered her question.
Having said that, Fang Tong remembered that when she was young, this Uncle Li did come to their house often, and he was very kind to her. Every time he came, he would bring her a lot of gifts and delicious food.
“Since Uncle Li is Dad’s good friend, then I can wear what I wear on weekdays and the day after tomorrow. Why do I have to go out to buy clothes? It’s not a blind date.” Fang Tong said jokingly.
“Your Uncle Li’s son, Bo Ming, just returned from studying abroad, and he will come together the day after tomorrow. You have not seen each other for many years. You can’t be too rude when meeting.” Fu Fanghua said.
Fang Tong vaguely understood what her parents meant and understood that the meeting was really a blind date, she just didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
“Mom, your daughter hasn’t graduated yet, so don’t worry about it.”
Fu Fanghua glared at her daughter, “You said that you are about to graduate, so why can’t we hurry, the best time for a woman is all these years, if you don’t take advantage of your youth to pick and choose, are you waiting to be an old maid in the future? Bo Ming and you are also childhood sweethearts, and the two families know each other well, so what’s wrong.”
Where was it right? Fang Tong rolled her eyes, thinking of the chubby, drooling little fat boy in her memory, a chill rose in her heart.
“Mom, don’t talk about that little fat boy anymore. Besides, I have a boyfriend.” Fang Tong simply said it. Originally, she had anyway wanted to find a chance to say it.
Fang Tong’s voice had just fell, when Fang Chengzhi and Fu Fanghua’s eyes both fell on her.
“Do you have a boyfriend? When did this happen?” Fu Fanghua looked at her daughter suspiciously. She lived in school on weekdays, but she didn’t mention it to her when she got home on weekends. She didn’t believe it, and thought it was an excuse to avoid the blind date.
