Chapter 36: Forced Marriage
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The two of them pushed each other for a long time before Bai Ran finally chased Chen Chen away.
In the end, there was no conclusion regarding the divorce.
Bai Ran leaned against the sofa in the living room, feeling exhausted.
At this moment, her phone rang again.
Bai Ran sighed. Who was it now?
She picked up the phone and saw that it was a number with no caller ID.
However, she immediately straightened her expression and sat up straight before answering the call.
Downstairs, Hu Wan watched as Chen Chen’s car drove away. Then, she went upstairs with a bunch of prepared gifts.
She stood outside Bai Ran’s house, clenched her fists, and calmed herself down. Then, she put on a friendly smile and pressed the doorbell.
Bai Ran had just hung up when she heard a knock on the door. She rushed to open it.
“Why haven’t you left yet?!” Bai Ran said as she opened the door. She thought it was Chen Chen without even looking at the person. After all, it had only been a few minutes since they parted ways.
“Sister Wan, why is it you?” A hint of surprise flashed across Bai Ran’s eyes.
Hu Wan’s urging for marriage became faster and closer.
Others were urging her to get married, but she was urging them to get a divorce! What a joke!
“I came to see you and brought you something.” Hu Wan pretended not to hear her first sentence and smiled sweetly.
“Can you invite me in today? Besides, I can’t leave these at the door.” Hu Wan raised the things in her hand and showed them to Bai Ran.
Bai Ran moved aside and said expressionlessly, “Please come in.”
“Have a seat first. I’ll get you a cup of water.” Bai Ran was a little cold. She did not welcome this uninvited guest.
“Okay, thanks.” Hu Wan put her things down and sat down.
“You should bring these back. I don’t need them.” Bai Ran handed a cup to Hu Wan. “Let’s get straight to the point.”
“I called him in front of you previously. I think I’ve done enough. I wasn’t the one who refused to get a divorce,” Bai Ran said calmly.
“Is your so-called boyfriend fake?” Hu Wan suddenly asked.
“Last time in the car, I already felt that you were not that close to him.” Hu Wan clenched her fists tightly, her nails digging into her palms. “And today, the news of you and Huo Tian’s first wife was revealed. That boyfriend has no objections?”
“You’re acting with Chen Chen for me to see, right?” Hu Wan said seriously.
“This is my fault. I apologize. I shouldn’t have lied to you. At that time, I only wanted you to accept our divorce in peace,” Bai Ran said seriously, finally looking better.
“I know. I want to ask you about your relationship with Boss Huo Tian. Is what the trending searches say true? Do you really like Boss Huo?” Hu Wan asked.
Bai Ran looked up. It seemed like she was not the one who had helped her take revenge.

Bai Ran lowered her eyes and said calmly, “You want it to be true, right?”
“The important thing is that Chen Chen also thinks it’s true. He just left and came to my place to argue. You know very well what kind of person he is. He won’t want a woman who has an unclear relationship with others, so I think the divorce procedures will be completed soon,” Bai Ran said.
“But he’s only here to quarrel and not to discuss the procedures with you, right?” Hu Wan grasped the crux of the matter.
“This is not something I can control.” Bai Ran’s expression was already filled with impatience.
Was Hu Wan, someone who went out every other day and was really enthusiastic about her divorce, really a heart patient who was about to die?
Bai Ran did not want to judge her with a petty heart, but she could not stand Hu Wan’s “enthusiasm.”
“Ran Ran, I don’t think Chen Chen believes that there’s anything between you and Boss Huo. Otherwise, why would he leave after a fight?”
As Hu Wan spoke, she suddenly looked a little excited. She went forward and held Bai Ran’s hand. “Ran Ran, I’m begging you. Why don’t you make this matter true? Or think of a way to make Chen Chen really believe it? Only then will he get a divorce.”
“Sister Wan, aren’t you forcing me?” Bai Ran was suddenly a little angry. Was she really going to send a lamb into a lion’s den just to get a divorce? Furthermore, it was to satisfy her love rival’s request?
“Ran Ran, I know it’s my fault, but I really just want to fulfill my only wish before I die. Can’t you understand my heart?” Hu Wan lowered her head, her voice choked with tears.
“You also know that I don’t actually have long to live. I just want to live this last life with Chen Chen. After I die, I’ll return Chen Chen to you, okay?”
Hu Wan held Bai Ran’s hand. “Then you can be with Chen Chen properly.. Just treat me as a passerby.”
