Chapter 37 Seeing Si Jinheng's Mother for the First Time
"I will come back to you next month for I am busy this month." Instead, he waited for three months.
"Heng, I am just meeting with a director. I will be fine." She turned a deaf ear to his persuasion. Consequently, she was drugged by the director. Even though the Mo family had swayed the final verdict and sentenced the director to death, what had happened would never be changed.
"Heng, this award ceremony means a lot to me. I must be present!" However, she left for a long time, during which time she was even caught on camera hugging with other male celebrities.
These were all because of her so-called dream. Well, her dream had come true. She had become an international super star. But wasn't she even busier than before?
Feeling agitated, Si Jinheng opened a bottle of liquor and drank slowly.
Li Qianluo finally decided to find Si Jinheng, as it was better to talk with him face to face.
But when she opened the door of the study, she was greeted by pungent smells of liquor and cigarette. All the windows in the room were closed and the light was dusky.
The smoke-filled room made Li Qianluo lightly cough several times. Si Jinheng was still seated on the sofa, drinking white liquor.
"Si Jinheng, what are you doing?" Li Qianluo had never seen Si Jinheng so down with grief.
He cast a cold glance at her with his bloodshot eyes, which made Li Qianluo feel somewhat hurt.
"Stop drinking. Go take a shower!" She grabbed the bottle from his hand and placed it on the desk. Then she tried to take the cigarette in his mouth, but he managed to shun away with a sudden turn of his head.
Li Qianluo was choked to tears when he blew a smoke ring onto her face.
"Si Jinheng, what are you doing. Cough..." Si Jinheng stubbed out the cigarette and leaned on the sofa with his eyes closed.
Li Qianluo did not know what to do, but to urge him, "Shower!" She pulled him with great efforts, but to no avail. Instead, by only a gentle pull, Si Jinheng drew her into his arms.
"Hush... Don't say anything. Stay in my arms for a while." Hearing that, Li Qianluo did not move any more. Si Jinheng hugged the woman in his arms closely, smelling her unique aroma and telling himself that this woman, unlike that woman, would always be here for him, and that Li Qianluo belonged to him.
He must have had his share of heartbreaking stories. Even though he remained silent, his sadness was not lost on her. Was it because of that woman?...
Sitting on Si Jinheng's legs, Li Qianluo put her hands around his neck tenderly. They both needed a hug and a shoulder to rest on. Somewhere along the way, she had gradually stopped putting him off, and had instead become more and more dependent on him. Perhaps, she had never resisted, but had only become more and more dependent on him.
Li Qianluo filled the bathtub with water. After a bath, Si Jinheng hugged her on the bed. That night, he was very gentle, leaving her with an impression that she was not the one Si Jinheng had in mind when he was sleeping with her...
The next day, Si Jinheng resumed his usual cold look, as if what happened that night was only illusion. However, Li Qianluo had woken up to the fact that she was not the only woman in Si Jinheng's heart...
She still went to the SL company as Si Jinheng had suggested. Yun Qi gave her several choices of different positions, and she finally chose to apply for the Facial Mask Research and Development Department to be an assistant formulator.
She dithered over her choice as it was made purely out of interest. But it didn't matter what position she chose, for it would only be a stepping stone for her.
After she had had her revenge and found her father, she must join an entertainment company, or her efforts paid all these years would be in vain.
