Qiao Anhao bit her lip, paused, and looked towards the group. "My stomach hurts, I'll go to the restroom, you can wait for me at the boarding gate."
Han Ruchu looked towards Xu Jiamu. "Qiao Qiao, you might get lost, why don't you let Jiamu accompany you."
"It's fine, I know where the boarding gate is," Qiao Anhao replied.
Afraid that Xu Jiamu would follow her, she hurriedly waved to them before heading toward the restroom that Lu Jinnian had entered. Behind, Qiao Anxia reminded her once more, "Gate thirty one."
Qiao Anhao rushed to the restroom. After ten seconds, she sneaked her head out. When she saw that the group had left, she hurriedly came out to wait outside the guys restroom.
Lu Jinnian didn't notice her, walking straight to the basin. After he had closed the tap and was preparing to get the tissue, a piece suddenly appeared in front of him. Startled, he turned to see Qiao Anhao looking at him angrily.
"Why did you stay in there for so long?"
Lu Jinnian laughed, explaining, "There were a lot of people."
Reaching for the tissue in her hands, he wiped his hands gracefully before placing his hand on her forehead. After confirming that her fever was gone, he asked, "How's your body?"
"It's much better."
Qiao Anhao smiled then and sneaked her head out to look once more. Realizing that Han Ruchu and Qiao Anxia were less than thirty meters away, she said in a hurry, "Auntie Xu and Anxia is here, I'll go now, bye bye."
Qiao Anhao rushed out of the restroom. After taking two steps, she seemed to have recalled something. She turned back and asked, "Which seat are you at?"
"32F" Qiao Anhao nodded, heading out.
After boarding the flight, the group sat at the very front of the plane while Lu Jinnian and his a.s.sistant sat behind. Even though the flight to Beijing was just a short one, barely two hours, Qiao Anhao visited the restroom five times.
Qiao Anxia, who sat by the lane, was irritated by her constant hara.s.sment and swapped seats with her in the end.
Every time Qiao Anhao pa.s.sed by Lu Jinnian's seat, they didn't say much, at most a wave or a short "Hi."
Even so, Lu Jinnian was satisfied.
The last time she had visited the toilet, she even cheekily tapped his shoulder. But at that moment, Han Ruchu stood up to visit the restroom, startling Qiao Anhao. She hurriedly retrieved her hand, heading back to her seat with her head lowered, while Lu Jinnian opened up a newspaper to s.h.i.+eld his face. The moment Han Ruchu pa.s.sed by, he felt as though he was having an underground relations.h.i.+p with Qiao Anhao.
Oh, more accurately said, it was an underground friends.h.i.+p.
Even though friends.h.i.+p was the most upright relations.h.i.+p in the world, but they had to do it sneakily, in the dark.
If they could stay peaceful, Lu Jinnian didn't mind staying her underground friend forever, but in just a few days, their friends.h.i.+p was exposed.
