(Better Die to Save Everyone’s Trouble (6)

“What? The car broke down and you can’t make it here? Okay… I’ll find a way back… No, the housekeeper’s off work today… No, you don’t need to order a car for me, many people drove here. I’ll ask one of them to take me home… Okay, alright… Bye!”

After hanging up the phone, Liang Doukou stood there for a while, then went back into the building with her phone in her hand.

After that, Jiang Qianqian walked out from behind the rosebush.

She looked at the place where Liang Doukou had just stood with her head tilted, then lifted her head up to see the cloudy sky. Suddenly, a bright light flashed through her eyes when she thought of what the weather forecast had said that morning—-A rainstorm will hit the city tonight.

The weather that day had been bad since the morning. After a hot spring bath, Qin Zhi’ai took a shower and touched up her makeup, but when she got back to the private room, the whole sky was covered with clouds, as dark as night.

With the weather being so bad, many people had said goodbye to her, for they were afraid that they wouldn’t be able to return to the city if a storm came.

One lady who had a good relationship with Liang Doukou asked Qin Zhi’ai before she left, “Xiaokou, how will you get home? Is there anyone coming to pick you up?”

Qin Zhi’ai was about to tell her that her minivan had broken down, but Jiang Qianqian, who had just been talking with Lin Rong by the window, suddenly turned her head and shouted loudly, “Yes, of course, there definitely is. I just happened to hear Sister Kou calling Brother Sheng and telling him to pick her up.”

When had she called Gu Yusheng and asked him to pick her up? Qin Zhi’ai frowned slightly, and when she was just about to ask her, Jiang Qianqian tilted her head and continued to say with an innocent smile, “Sister Kou, isn’t he coming to pick you up, since you called him? When I went out this afternoon, I heard from my brother that he and some other friends made an appointment to play Mahjong at the Majestic Clubhouse, doesn’t he have time to come and pick you up?”

“Brother Sheng has gone too far! I’ll call him now!” Jiang Qianqian pouted with an angry face, then took her phone out of the bag.

Jiang Qianqian had invented a scenario just for the purpose of preventing Qin Zhi’ai from getting a ride.

However, she had to admit that her little scheme had worked very well.

She was clear about Jiang Qanqian’s goal, but she was unable to prevent her from achieving that goal, because she couldn’t call Gu Yusheng. If he got on the phone and heard that she wanted him to pick her up, he would definitely have some vicious words for her. With so many ladies around, if Jiang Qianqian fussed deliberately, the news that Gu Yusheng loathed Liang Doukou would spread throughout the whole city in an instant.

She was unwilling to be laughed at, and if that really happened, she couldn’t give a reasonable explanation to Liang Doukou....
