Hidden Marriage: A Heaven-sent Billionaire Husband - Chapter 2349 - 2349 Twins
Qiao Jierou and Lin Heng stood not far away. When they came, they were surrounded by reporters. At this moment, not many reporters were willing to stay by their side.
Lin Heng’s phone kept receiving messages. Hearing the worrying notifications, Qiao Jierou could already imagine that the various companies that were originally in contact with them for a partnership were now asking how to deal with the situation.
Not only did she fail to win the award, but her status had also dropped in the eyes of these people.
“Jierou, let’s go back. We still have something to do. Let’s go back first,” Lin Heng said.
Only then did Qiao Jierou suddenly remember that this also involved her grandfather’s division of the family assets!
Her heart skipped a beat. Grandma had fought for her for so long to convince Grandpa to split the family assets. Originally, the film award was a very important bargaining chip for her, but today…
She did not dare to think about it, so she had to go back! They could not split the family assets for the time being!
“Brother Heng, let’s go,” Qiao Jierou said hurriedly.
When the reporters saw her fleeing, they couldn’t help but find it funny and recorded this scene.
Huang Shitao stopped them at the door. “President Lin, I have a few words to say to you.”
Qiao Jierou was in a hurry and glared at Huang Shitao resentfully.
“Jierou, I’ll get the driver to send you back first. I want to talk to Mr. Huang.”
Qiao Jierou had no choice but to take the car back.
Lin Heng followed Huang Shitao into the meeting room.
“Mr. Huang, are you going to explain this matter to me?” Lin Heng asked, very vexed.
“I’m sorry, President Lin. Our previous communication was indeed a misunderstanding, and we gave you the wrong hint. Later on, the judges unanimously agreed that some things can be done but some things can’t. I’m really sorry. I originally wanted to communicate with you in advance, but unfortunately, I didn’t have the time, so I could only find an opportunity to apologize to you now.”
Lin Heng placed his hands on the table. “Is an apology enough? Do you know how big the impact is?”
“I’m sorry,” Huang Shitao said sincerely.
“We’ve invested so much and sponsored so much. Is an apology enough?” Even Lin Heng himself didn’t know why he was so angry. Was it simply because Qiao Jierou didn’t win the award?
Or was it because Qiao Weiyang had won an award… She was getting farther and farther away from him, and she didn’t need him anymore.
Huang Shitao said seriously, “President Lin, we’re indeed in the wrong in this matter, so we won’t take your sponsorship. Let’s also forget about what you previously promised.”
Lin Heng stared at him. He clearly did not expect the film awards, which were so short of money, to be so unyielding.
His voice was cold. “Let’s talk about it in the future!”
Qiao Weiyang was pestered by the reporters. After a while, she left the crowd and got into the car.
She sat in the front passenger seat, and Su Zhuoqian quickly drove away from the crowd. Some reporters originally wanted to chase after them, but they were quickly shaken off and had no strength to track down the car.
The car stopped in a quiet place. Su Zhuoqian grabbed Qiao Weiyang’s head, pulled her toward him, and kissed her lips.
He had wanted to do this since the first time he saw her tonight.
Now, he didn’t have to worry about ruining her makeup or being seen. His kiss was a little unbridled.
Qiao Weiyang responded to him and hooked her arms around his neck, matching his enthusiasm.
It was not until sparks were about to ignite and because the phone kept ringing that Qiao Weiyang had to end things. She still had things to do at night.
She stopped, panting slightly.
Su Zhuoqian said in a low and hoarse voice, “Answer the phone.”
She picked it up. It was Old Master Qiao.
“I’ll be right back,” Qiao Weiyang said.
Su Zhuoqian reached out to wipe the lipstick off her lips. “I’ll go with you.”
The car stopped at the Qiao family’s house. Qiao Weiyang got out of the car under Su Zhuoqian’s encouraging gaze and walked straight in.
She hadn’t been back for a long time, so she couldn’t help but feel a little unfamiliar at this moment.
Butler Qiao went forward to welcome her. “Eldest Miss, please come in. Old Master is already waiting.”
Qiao Weiyang lifted the hem of her evening gown and walked slowly across the courtyard to the living room.
No one noticed that she had entered. The argument had not stopped.
Old Master Qiao’s voice carried a hint of anger. “Back then, you were the ones who said that after the film award ceremony ended, we’d make the decision on how to divide the family business. Haven’t they already given out the awards? Isn’t the division supposed to be settled today? Why are you postponing it again? Which day do you want, or are you just thinking of the day you think is suitable?!”
“Grandpa, Grandma didn’t mean that. She just feels that it’s getting late today, so she wants to change the date. She’s afraid that it’ll affect your rest,” Qiao Jierou quickly said in a low voice.
“Is that so? Then when you came to look for me previously, you weren’t bothered about the late hour. Weren’t you worried about affecting my rest? Also, you called Dongliang back this time. Aren’t you worried about delaying his studies?” Old Master Qiao asked.
Old Madam Qiao knew that she was in the wrong, so she couldn’t defend herself now. She looked to the side.
At this moment, she only felt her face hurting.
Tonight, she had gathered a large group of people to watch the event. In the end, Qiao Weiyang’s win gave her a slap in the face. Although these people had left, she still felt her face hurting.
She had to be patient.
Old Master Qiao said, “I’ll announce it when Weiyang comes.”
“Grandpa…” Qiao Jierou wanted to persuade him again, but she didn’t know what to say.
Old Madam Qiao looked at Qiao Jierou dejectedly. If Qiao Jierou had won the award tonight, there wouldn’t have been so much trouble now.
Everyone in the room was not in a good mood.
Only Qiao Dongliang remained silent. When he glanced at the door and saw Qiao Weiyang, he shouted happily, “Sister!”
Everyone looked at Qiao Weiyang. She was dressed in bright red as she stood at the door. Watching her on TV was already enough of a visual impact. Seeing her in person made them even more dazed. This was not a beauty that humans could have.
Qiao Jierou bit her lip as she looked at the priceless diamond necklace on Qiao Weiyang’s neck. Her eyes were filled with unwillingness and jealousy.
Thinking about how she had embarrassed herself tonight, she felt extremely uncomfortable.
As Qiao Weiyang walked over, her bright face and figure instantly made the entire living room more colorful.
Old Madam Qiao was in a daze and found it unbelievable. The Qiao Weiyang she usually saw, other than on the screen, was usually calm and cold. The Qiao Weiyang she saw now was a side that Old Madam Qiao rarely saw.
For a moment, she was so shocked that she started to doubt herself. All these years, had she been betting on the wrong person? Were things never supposed to be like this?
But a moment later, she calmed down. How could she have done anything wrong? What was there to support about Qiao Weiyang?
