Qiao Lian was stunned by his strange request.

Su Penghao cleared his throat again. “She only brought one set of clothes and she’s penniless. She washes her clothes every night and puts them back on the next morning, even if they haven’t dried out. It’s probably very uncomfortable for her. But I’m a guy after all, and I don’t know what sort of clothes to buy her…”

Qiao Lian looked at him strangely.

She had not expected that Su Penghao, who was usually casual and carefree, would be so meticulous as to notice these details.

She nodded immediately and said, “Sure.”

When they arrived at the villa, Su Penghao was once again behaving awkwardly.

Qiao Lian looked at him questioningly and asked, “Is there something that you want to say?”

Su Penghao coughed softly. Then he said, “Why didn’t you tell me?”

Tell him what?

Qiao Lian was puzzled for a moment, and then suddenly she understood. He must be referring to the matter about Xiao Qiao.

Qiao Lian looked at him half-laughing and remarked, “You were so smitten by Purple Fairy, would you have believed me?”

Su Penghao kept silent.

Qiao Lian grinned. With light-hearted steps, she turned and walked into the house.

However, she was completely unaware that her every action and expression was being observed right now.

In the bedroom, Xia Yehua was picking up her cell phone to call Shen Liangchuan.

The line went through. Xia Yehua immediately said, “Liangchuan, it’s been a few days. Are you going to continue staying outside? You’re going to lose your pretty little wife! I just saw a handsome young man taking Xiao Qiao home…”

Shen Liangchuan listened without speaking.

Qiao Lian had no idea that Xia Yehua was trying to coax her son to come home. She was lying on the bed in her bedroom.

After pushing everything out of her mind, she finally fell asleep.

In the days that followed, Shen Liangchuan did not return home.

Although Qiao Lian was troubled with Zi Chuan’s matter, she knew there were other priorities.

The grand final was just around the corner and she was busy going to the team’s villa, involved in the training and preparation process.

Ever since she had played that match and the team members had seen her capabilities, there was a new-found respect for her. They no longer disobeyed her and the training sessions were now going extremely well.

The Godfather and The Deputy Godfather’s burns finally formed a scab on the fifth day, and they were able to start playing. In other words, this meant that they probably would have enough players for the grand final.

It was a great relief for Qiao Lian.

Tomorrow was the day of the grand final. Before she left the clubhouse, Qiao Lian reminded the team members to go to bed early

For some reason, her guts told her that something bad was about to happen.

Just as the cab arrived at her doorstep, she got a call from Su Penghao. “Coach Qiao, something has happened!”

Qiao Lian’s heart sank. She asked the cab driver to turn around and return to the clubhouse.

At the clubhouse.

Qiao Lian glanced at the 5,000 on the table and looked at the team members.

Su Penghao frowned and said, “She brought three or four relatives with her so that they could hold us back. Then they took her away. We couldn’t even react!”

Qiao Lian took a deep breath. “What is going on here?”

The Godfather anxiously said, “Shortly after you left, Ancestor White Bones’ mother came charging in with a group of people. She threw the 5,000 on the table, saying that she did not need your money, since she had lots of money now.”

She had lots of money now?

A few days ago she had been lamenting about not having enough money, so how was it possible that she had so much money all of a sudden?

Furthermore, this had happened just a night before the grand final. Even if she were to try to find a replacement, it would be difficult because of how soon it was.

“So what can we do now? We’re short on players for the grand final again!
