When Qiao Anhao heard the door lock open, she trembled. She hesitated slightly before opening her eyes to look at the side view mirror through the window. Just then, she caught a glimpse of Lu Jinnian's back. She remembered the surprise in Mian Xiu Garden, her lips moved, but nothing came out.
Lu Jinnian stood by the door, his gaze looking straight at a vine. After a while, his hand moved and a loud thud could be heard as the car door slammed shut. He then took large strides away.
The car suddenly became very quiet. Qiao Anhao curled up in the back seat, unable to move. After a long time, she lightly blinked her eyes and sat up with a pale face. She arranged her clothes and tied her hair into a messy pony tail. Sitting in the back of the car, she blanked out for a bit before finally climbing into the driver seat and heading back to Mian Xiu Garden.
Lu Jinnian flagged for a cab, heading to Huan Ying Entertainment.
After paying the cab, he walked into the building. The security guard on night duty was only semi-awake, so when he saw someone walk in, he shook his head to take a closer look. When he realized it was Lu Jinnian, he was instantly alert. "Mr. Lu."
Lu Jinnian didn't respond, he just took large strides towards the elevator.
It was close to 11 pm and the entire building was silent. When Lu Jinnian came out of the elevator, he walked straight into his office, but when he pa.s.sed by Song Xiangsi's place, he realized that the lights were still on. There were also murmurs coming from her office.
Lu Jinnian frowned before raising his hand to knock on the door. The voice quietened, and after three seconds, Song Xiangsi's calm authoritative voice came through. "Who is it?"
Lu Jinnian didn't reply, instead, he pushed open the door and walked in.
Song Xiangsi was the only one in her office. She was dressed in a diamond encrusted white maxi dress, which reflected the rays from the office lamp. She slouched on the sofa lazily with a twelve inch cake placed on the coffee table in front of her. The candles on the cake were extinguished, and beside it was a bottle of red wine and a wine gla.s.s.
She seemed to have drank quite abit as her pupils were slightly dilated. When she saw Lu Jinnian, her perfectly lined lips curled into a wide smile, allowing her delicate features to look charming and seductive. " Mr. Lu? What are you doing here at such a late hour?"
Lu Jinnian glanced at the cake before walking over to the coffee table to stare at the cake and red wine. Coldly, he asked, "It's your birthday?"
Song Xiangsi's smile widened further, her diamond encrusted nails holding the wine gla.s.s elegantly as she tilted her head, downing the wine. She placed the wine gla.s.s back down on the coffee table and replied, "It's a friend's birthday."
Song Xiangsi retrieved another wine gla.s.s from the bottom of the coffee table and pa.s.sed it over to Lu Jinnian. "Want some?"
