The policemen watched as Qiao Lian and Shen Liangchuan got into the ambulance. Then, they blankly surveyed the situation in front of them. Only when the ambulance had left did they snap back to reality and stared at Song Cheng simultaneously. They asked him, “Do you know what happened here? Will you go with us to provide a witness testimony?”
Song Cheng shook his head and said, “I don't know what happened.”
“You- Then, please ask that gentleman from before to head over to the police station whenever he's available!”
Song Cheng smiled and said, “I'm sorry, if you want to contact him, you will need to contact his lawyer first. Otherwise, he will not be able to provide you with any information.”
If a public figure was brought to the police station by the police, he would be in deep trouble indeed.
Thus, Song Cheng had learnt the art of improvisation and quick-wittedness.
At this point, the policemen could only handcuff the group of thugs and bring them back to the police station for interrogation.
She was in a daze. All she could see was darkness.
Qiao Lian tried to open her eyes, but found that she could not open her eyes, no matter how hard she tried.
She felt pain all over her body, so much so that she could not help but frown. She groaned loudly.
Then, she felt a warm hand clasping over hers, and heard a rich voice near her ear. “I'm here, Xiao Qiao.”
Those four words felt like a clear stream that was slowly quenching the fire inside her body. Immediately, she felt much calmer than before.
Her eyebrows relaxed and she fell into a deep sleep once again.
Shen Liangchuan held her hand and waited by her side.
He had also suffered some minor injuries. His fist was bleeding due to the force had exerted on punching the other thugs. Thus, at this moment, it was wrapped with bandages. He remained seated at the side of the bed, motionless.
The woman on the bed had had her injuries taken care of. However, he noticed that there were many swollen patches all over her body.
Her face was swollen from being beaten up again. New scars had appeared on her face, even though the old ones had not fully recovered yet.
However, even in this condition, he could still see the beautiful outline of the girl's face. Those tightly-shut eyes and trembling eyebrows all showed him that she was extremely scared.
She was scared.
Any girl would be scared after experiencing such a harrowing encounter.
However, she had still blocked those thugs without hesitation, allowing him to rescue Song Yuanxi.
He stared at her continuously. Only after a long while did he slowly reach out his hand towards her cheek.
His hand hung in mid-air for a while. He was scared that he would touch the injuries on her face. Hence, he ultimately dropped his hand again.
Time pa.s.sed by slowly, as he sat in the quiet room. He mumbled to himself… or was it to Qiao Lian? Either way, he said quietly, “Xiao Qiao, we'll live a peaceful life together from now on, all right?”
Let bygones be bygones.
At this moment, he finally had a revelation after looking at her body riddled with scar.
He would rather watch her stab him while smiling, than watch her get hurt again.
He no longer had the heart to take revenge against this girl.
As for the accrued debts from the past, she had repaid enough of them so far, right?
His gaze grew darker and darker until, finally, the only feeling left was one of a rich, immutable love.
She did not care about their previous relations.h.i.+p because it had mostly been online.
Thus, he would start a formal, romantic relations.h.i.+p with her now in real life. There was still time…
The sunlight started to fade away, so thin light rays shone on his cheek as the sun went down. At this moment, his expression seemed extraordinarily gentle.
Around 8 pm, the lady lying on the bed finally opened her eyes.
The first thing she saw was the hospital's ceiling, and she could smell the piercing smell of disinfectant in the air.
She moved her neck and saw Shen Liangchuan sitting at her side. Before she could speak, he said, “Xiao Qiao, are you still in pain?”
