Qiao Anhao stared at her phone screen , and thought for a moment. Then, just as she used to do to Lu Jinnian whenever she went to Hangzhou and cried for him to treat her to dinner, she sent him another message, [You have to treat me to dinner.]
[Okay.] Qiao Anhao's phone received Lu Jinnian's reply, which was then followed by another message with a few more words, [What do you want to eat?]
[Anything's fine.] After Qiao Anhao typed this, she paused for a second, and added the words, [What day?]
[Then Anxia might come. I'm with her right now.]
[Ok, where are you? I'll come pick you both up.]
Seeing as Lu Jinnian had no thoughts, Qiao Anhao told him where they were.
After about a minute, Lu Jinnian sent another message, [Alright, wait for my call.]
[Okay then.] Qiao Anhao replied to Lu Jinnian with those two words. She turned her eyes from her phone, towards Qiao Anxia who was taking a selfie. "Sis, as I sent Lu Jinnian a message just now to congratulate him, I casually asked him to treat us. Who would of thought, he actually agreed. Do you want to eat?"
Qiao Anxia's expression, as she looked into the camera, slightly froze for a second, and she said in a neutral tone, "Whatever, I don't mind." She looked into the camera, posed with an elegant expression, and pressed the capture b.u.t.ton.
Just when Qiao Anxia put her photo through MeituPic, ready to edit, she looked up at Qiao Anhao and said, "Qiao Qiao, can I ask you a question?"
"What question?" Qiao Anhao stared at Qiao Anxia with her full attention.
Qiao Anxia also put down her phone, and her expression became serious. "Qiao Qiao, do you know who Lu Jinnian likes?"
Qiao Anhao shook her head. "No, I don't."
She paused, bit her straw, and took two sips. Then said to Qiao Anxia, "But when I asked him once, he told me that the woman he loves is already married."
Qiao Anxia didn't make a sound but stared directly at Qiao Anhao. She closely looked her up and down. After staring for a long while, Qiao Anxia realised that Qiao Anhao's eyes were only filled with curiosity. She wasn't hiding anything, nor did she look guilty. Only then did Qiao Anxia divert her eyes. It seemed like Qiao Anhao really didn't know that she was the woman Lu Jinnian was in-love with.
Qiao Anxia lowered her head, sitrring the coffee in her cup. With a gentle "yeah", she continued to say, "She's married."
So Qiao Anxia already knew that the woman Lu Jinnian loved was married after all. Didn't that also mean that she knew who she was?
Qiao Anhao forcefully bit her straw. After some hesitation, she still asked, "Sis, do you already know who Lu Jinnian loves?"
Qiao Anxia didn't say a word.
Qiao Anhao lowered her eyes. She secretly mentally prepared herself, then asked in a relaxed voice, "Who is it?"
Qiao Anhao was already married to Xu Jiamu, and in all these years, Lu Jinnian didn't let her know that she was the one he loves.
He must of not wanted to disrupt his brother's marriage.
Also, Qiao Anhao and Xu Jiamu seemed like they were doing well... If she revealed the truth, would it disrupt Qiao Anhao's happiness?
