“Qinglan, let me give you the money for the silk scarf, just as if I bought it from you.” Fang Tong thinks that she could afford a silk scarf, but Qinglan …[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters any where else]

Yu Xiaoxuan also nodded. “Yes, Qinglan, these specialty products have already cost you a lot of money. We can’t let you spend any more. This silk scarf must have been very expensive. Please tell me the price later and I’ll give you the money.”

Shen Qinglan took a glance at Wu Qian, whose face was flushed red, because of their words.

“No, I’ve had scholarships over the past few years, and I haven’t spent much of it on weekdays. I still have some money in my hand. Everyone will graduate in one year. Let’s consider it a graduation gift I gave you in advance.”

“But graduation gifts shouldn’t be so expensive.”  Yu Xiaoxuan grunted, still determined to give the money to Shen Qinglan.

Shen Qinglan’s eyes looked helpless, this friend sometimes is really a blockhead.[we do not translate 4 other websites besides translateindo]

It was Fang Tong who reacted. What they said just now was a normal thing, but they did not take Wu Qian into account. Wu Qian’s family conditions were even worse. They talked about money. Wasn’t it embarrassing for Wu Qian?

She gave Yu Xiaoxuan a wink. ‘Someone’ finally reacts and shuts her disagreeing mouth.

Fang Tong laughed, “Qinglan, then I won’t hesitate to accept it.”

Shen Qinglan nodded in a good mood.

Wu Qian held the gift box and thanked Shen Qinglan in a low voice. Her mood was very complicated.

She thought that she and Shen Qinglan were equal in the dormitory because they were both from poor families. She did not envy Shen Qinglan even when she saw that Fang Tong and Yu Xiaoxuan had a good relationship with her.[please read at translateind0]

But now, she suddenly realized, in reality, she is the poorest in the dormitory. Although she gets a scholarship every year, which is enough to pay for her tuition, she still needs to work to earn her living expenses.

As for Shen Qinglan, she has never seen her do any part-time jobs in three years. Although she is dressed in ordinary clothes, she is probably well fed and clothed, and even her scholarship can be saved up.

At this moment, Wu Qian was deeply aware of the gap between her and them. She looked down at the exquisite gift box in her hand. Her eyes were complicated and difficult to distinguish.

“By the way, didn’t you apply to Junlan Group before. What was the result?”  Shen Qinglan asked; she is undoubtedly changing the subject.

“Fang Tong was hired, but I failed.”  Yu Xiaoxuan’s face looked sad. “I can’t see my male god, boo-hoo.”[ not reading this at Translateindo? it’s been stolen]

She wasn’t sad because she didn’t get hired, but because she couldn’t see her male-god. Even Shen Qinglan was convinced by her powerful reason.

“Wu Qian, how’s your job search going?”  Yu Xiaoxuan cried for two seconds and immediately returned to normal.

Wu Qian’s eyes darkened. “I haven’t found one yet, but I have already submitted several resumes, and there should be news in a few days.”  She didn’t say that she applied for Junlan Group and was declined.

Because Junlan’s interview lasted several days, she deliberately avoided Fang Tong and Yu Xiaoxuan, so they didn’t know they were applying for the same company.[please read at translateind0]

“Qinglan, I’m going to travel to Jinning city in a few days. There is a large film and television base there, I want to see it. Do you want to go with me?  Maybe we can also meet the cast to take part in the movie…” Yu Xiaoxuan finished eating a piece of Osmanthus Cake and said excitedly.

“I’m not going. I’m going to take a few days off and look for an internship.”

Yu Xiaoxuan felt reluctant when she heard her, but she didn’t force it.

After the things she had to do were done, Shen Qinglan went home. Not to her own apartment, but her and Fu Hengyi’s home.

[ not reading this at Translateindo? it’s been stolen]

The house is still the same as when she left. There was no change. Also, Fu Hengyi has not come back from the base. When there is no one living in the house, what would change?

Shen Qinglan tidied up her luggage, mainly putting away the paintings painted at Hangzhou.  She picked up the sketchbook and put it in an obscure corner on the shelf.

Later, Shen Qinglan rolled up her sleeves and began cleaning. Then she removed the quilt cover, replaced it with a new one, and washed the old one.

When she finished all the housework, it was evening. Then, she remembered the gifts for Grandpa Fu and Grandpa Shen. Shen Qinglan simply changed her clothes and went out of the door.

Shen Qinglan didn’t call to say that she wanted to come home. When she arrived at Shen house, the Shen family was eating.

“Qinglan is back.”  It was Aunty Song who opened the door.

“Aunty Song, where’s Grandpa?”

“Master Shen is eating.”

Shen Qinglan went straight to the dining room, “Grandpa.”  Seeing other people were also there, “Mom, Brother.”  She only ignored Shen Xitong.

When Grandpa Shen saw his granddaughter, his face softened. “Have you eaten yet?”

Shen Qinglan nodded, “I’ve already eaten, Grandpa. This is Longjing tea I brought back to you from my trip to Hangzhou. I drank it and found it delicious. So, I brought it back for you to taste.”

Grandpa Shen took his granddaughter’s tea leaves happily.

“Lan Lan, Grandpa got a gift. What about me?”  Shen Junyu looked at her, with a smile.

“Yours is at home. I didn’t bring it with me. I’ll send it to your company tomorrow.”

Shen Junyu was satisfied.

Shen Qinglan took out two more boxes and handed them to Chu Yunrong and Shen Xitong respectively. “Mom, this is for you.”

She didn’t address Shen Xitong as her sister. The family had already gotten used to it. Shen Xitong herself didn’t mind. She took the gift with a smile on her face. “My sister went out to play and wanted to bring gifts for us all. Really heartfelt.”[if your NOT reading at Translateindo, this chapter has been copied without permission]

“By the way.”  Shen Qinglan’s red lips lightly opened, spitting out four words.

“Grandpa, I have to go to the Fu family. I’ll go first and see you again another day.”

Grandpa Shen’s hand stiffens, and his eyes looked complicated. It’s true that women shouldn’t stay at their own family’s home. She just married into Fu’s family, so she shouldn’t come to her mother’s house.

Shen Qinglan simply left without seeing the resentment in Shen Xitong’s eyes when she heard her saying something about going to the Fu family.

Over the past few days, Grandpa Shen urged Chu Yunrong to arrange a blind date for her. Every day, she was forced to meet all kinds of strange men. She was very upset.[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters anywhere else]

Even Chu Yunrong’s interest in holding a personal concert for her was greatly reduced.

Shen Qinglan went to Fu’s home to see grandpa Fu. She accompanied the old man to eat a meal before returning to her home. It was already 10 o’clock in the evening when she left. This time, instead of taking a taxi, she directly drove the red Ferrari that Shen Junyu gave her last year on her birthday.

At home, Shen Qinglan directly went to sleep after taking a bath. Fu Hengyi’s faint presence remained in the room. She thought she would still suffer from insomnia, but she did not expect to fall asleep so soon.

At one o’clock in the middle of the night, Shen Qinglan, who slept soundly in bed, suddenly opened her eyes and looked at the bedroom door with sharp eyes.[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters anywhere else]

In a quiet night, the light footsteps outside the door are clearly audible.

Someone stopped in front of the bedroom, Shen Qinglan sat up and quietly got up. She walked barefooted to the door. The bedroom floor is covered with carpet, her footsteps barely sounded.
