Originally, Kim Eun-hee had already caught this woman, but no matter how she pressed her, the woman just wouldn’t open her mouth, or said some useless nonsense as soon as she opened her mouth. She had been caught for three days, but nothing came out of her mouth, which made Kim Eun-hee, who used to be one of the top 10 interrogators in the world, mad.
She was about to find an opportunity to use “heavy punishment” on this woman, but suddenly received a phone call from Sis Li. So, she went out in a hurry, but when she came back, the woman was gone.
Kim Eun-hee’s face was dark at the time, but no matter how she looked, she couldn’t find this woman, but she swore that as long as she was given time, she would definitely be able to find her, but now, Kim Eun-hee, who was far away in the UK, had no time to come. She was not looking for this woman, but she was very assured of Shen Qinglan, even if she didn’t do anything, this woman would not be Shen Qinglan’s opponent.
“I’ve heard the name of Miss Shen for a long time, but it’s the first time I’ve seen you. You are more beautiful than in the photo.” Leng Qingqiu said with a smile and stretched out her right hand.
Shen Qinglan glanced at the slender hand in front of her, but instead of shaking it, she said lightly, “Miss Leng is more graceful than I thought.”
“I heard Xitong saying that Miss Shen and my manager Daniel know each other?” There was an imperceptible temptation in her tone.
Shen Qinglan’s eyes moved slightly, “I’ve seen him a few times, but I’m not familiar with him.”
A faint light flashed across Leng Qingqiu’s eyes, and the smile on her face became genuine, “Speaking of which, I haven’t seen my agent for a long time. I recently participated in a foreign young painter competition, and Daniel took my place.”
“Qingqiu, you are too low-key, if it weren’t for an accident, we probably wouldn’t know each other. I know you don’t like being high-profile, but occasionally, it is good, if you want to appear in front of people, you should at least let people know what you look like, and don’t let some people with ulterior motives do something in your name just because no one knows you.” Shen Xitong said, with a look towards Shen Qinglan.
“Leng Qingqiu” seemed a little helpless, “I was only interested in painting at the beginning, who knew that my paintings would be accepted by everyone, after all, my paintings are not widely acceptable. I have even been criticized by many people because the content is too dark.”
“Actually, I didn’t mean to not appear in front of people, I just got used to it.” “Leng Qingqiu” added.
Shen Qinglan quietly listened to the two of them chatting, and seemed to be unaware of the obscure and blatant gaze fixed on her.
“Sister, you’ve always liked Qingqiu’s paintings before, but now that you see her, why don’t you speak?” Shen Xitong seemed to be disgusted by Shen Qinglan’s cold appearance, so she spoke.
Hearing this, “Leng Qingqiu” glanced at Shen Qinglan with great interest, “Does Miss Shen also like my paintings?”
Shen Qinglan raised her eyes, the corners of her mouth twitched, “It’s just an occasional liking.” She turned her eyes and spoke again, “Miss Leng’s painting style has changed a bit recently.”
“Leng Qingqiu” smiled lightly, “Yes, I have encountered some things recently, and even my mood has changed, especially when I meet someone, it makes me feel that there is not only night in this world, but also dawn and rising sun.”
A shyness and warmth appeared in her eyes at the right time, like a girl who was in love.
“I don’t know who has such a charm to make Miss Leng so concerned.” Shen Qinglan asked curiously, but her heart kept sinking. This fake “Leng Qingqiu” seemed to know too much about the real Leng Qingqiu.
“Leng Qingqiu” had a warm smile on her face, “A very warm person, seeing him is like seeing the sunshine in winter, Miss Shen probably doesn’t know, the name of the work I asked Daniel to send to the exhibition is called “” Redemption”, he is my redemption.”
No one saw the coldness in Shen Qinglan’s eyes when she heard the word “redemption”, not even the “Leng Qingqiu” that had been focusing on her.
The coldness disappeared too quickly, and Shen Qinglan’s face did not show the slightest emotional fluctuations, “It seems that this person is very lucky to be treated with such gentleness by Miss Leng.”
“Who knows,” Leng Qingqiu” was in a shock as she shook her head, “Actually, it’s my luck to meet him.”
The conversation between the two seemed to be normal, but for some reason, Shen Xitong just felt very weird, and she couldn’t tell where the weirdness came from.
Shen Qinglan’s brows were calm, she just glanced at her lightly, and stopped talking. This woman not only knew the style of her paintings, but also knew a lot about her affairs, such an uncontrollable feeling… Shen Qinglan’s eyes seemed unhappy.
“Leng Qingqiu” smiled without saying a word, looking at Shen Qinglan’s eyes in addition to curiosity, she also had disdain, this was just an ordinary girl, she couldn’t figure out why that person wanted her to approach her, and that too as a person called Leng Qingqiu the name of a painter.
Although she didn’t know the purpose of that person asking her to do this, but as that person’s most loyal subordinate, she would do her best on his request, if it wasn’t to imitate the style of Leng Qingqiu and prevent herself from leaking in front of others, she would have already appeared in front of people.
“Qinglan, Xitong, it’s time to eat.” Sister Song came over and said.
Shen Qinglan got up, “I’m going to call the grandpas out for dinner.” Then she went upstairs.
Shen Xitong’s face was a little embarrassed. Her family’s attitude towards the guest was so indifferent, which made her face a little uncomfortable. She looked at “Leng Qingqiu” and saw that there was no dissatisfaction on her face, her expression was relaxed, and her heart was slightly relieved.
“Qingqiu, my sister has such a personality. She has always been like this, so don’t take it to heart.” Shen Xitong opened her mouth with a smile on her face.
“Leng Qingqiu” smiled gently, and the words she said were very understanding, “I came here as the guest so I have to be liberal.”
Shen Xitong felt more and more that this “Leng Qingqiu” could become a well-known painter because of her self-cultivation that Shen Qinglan couldn’t match.
Qinglan went upstairs to talk to the two old men first, and then came to the door of her parents’ room. She raised her hand to knock on the door, but vaguely heard a weak… crying sound from inside the room.
Her hand gently knocked on the door twice, the voice in the door immediately quieted down, Shen Qinglan raised her eyebrows, really was her mother crying?
“Mom, it’s time to eat.” Shen Qinglan said.
For a long time, there were no footsteps in the door, only Chu Yunrong’s hoarse voice, “Mom is a little uncomfortable, so I won’t go in to eat, please help me to say sorry to Miss Leng.”
Shen Qinglan was silent, and then answered . “Okay” and turned to leave.
Listening to the sound of footsteps walking away, Chu Yunrong locked the box and carefully placed it under the bed. She sat in front of the dressing table and looked at her red and swollen eyes in the mirror, as well as her already smudged makeup, in silence.
