In actual fact, Qiao Anhao wanted to ask Lu Jinnian how a woman should prevent intimacy from happening... like, for a couple in a pa.s.sionate relations.h.i.+p, is that really a good idea? But she didn't dare open her mouth to ask.
Everything has been going so well lately, what would happen if she carelessly asked such a question and shattered their wonderful time together? If there were to be a day when they went back to being friends, then they could still keep in contact, if she did not ask her questions now.
There was no doubt in Lu Jinnian's heart. He felt that Qiao Anhao was relying on him, but relying on what exactly, he didn't really understand that. As of late, this woman was his own little brother's wife.
Above everyone else, he knew in his heart that he shouldn't get close to Qiao Anhao, but he just couldn't control himself. He and Qiao Anhao were getting along so well right now. Though he didn't know where exactly they were heading, but honestly speaking, of the thirteen years he's been in love with her, this was the first time in his life when he felt the slightest bit of sweetness. He really didn't want to kill his chances.
Tonight, Lin s.h.i.+yi accompanied someone to the "Peppermint Garden".
She was once a first-rate female celebrity. In comparison to delicate models and drifters, her looks and the way she carried herself stood out among the crowd. And so, she turned up at the dinner party to especially show face for her big 'investor'. The happier he was, the more money she got, so she went out of her way to obey him. Whoever he told her to drink to, she would drink to.
However, regardless of how well she could take her alcohol, after taking endless shots she couldn't take it anymore. She found an excuse and trotted away from the dinner table in her high heels. After she stumbled towards the restroom, she vomited into the sink, completely emptying her stomach from all the alcohol, which made her feel a little better. Then she turned on the tap and wiped her mouth with water. She fixed up her make-up to keep up appearances, and went back to the dinner.
"Peppermint Garden" was a Chinese garden with winding paths that all looked similar to one another, and so on her way back, Lin s.h.i.+yi got lost. She wanted to ask a waiter how to get back to table 08, but she never b.u.mped into anyone. Instead, she saw Lu Jinnian and Qiao Anhao sitting at a table by the lake.
Lu Jinnian looked like he was on the phone. Half his face was hidden in the shadows, so it was difficult to read his expression. Sitting in front of him was Qiao Anhao, who lowered her head as she ate a shrimp. Though the two of them never interacted, the atmosphere between them seemed warm.
Actually, at first, Lin s.h.i.+yi didn't pay too much attention to it. After all, they were just two actors who had previously worked together sharing a meal. But just as she was about to turn away after staring for quite some time, she saw Qiao Anhao feeding Lu Jinnian shrimps.
Wasn't Qiao Anhao, Xu Jiamu's wife? Why would she get so close to Lu Jinnian?
Unless... there was trouble in their marriage? Lu Jinnian was the third wheel?
As those words flashed across Lin s.h.i.+yi's mind, the blood in her body began to boil.
If anyone were to see this, how big of an uproar would there be?
Nevertheless, the entertainment circle and the media had such a close relations.h.i.+p, not to mention, after all these years, Lu Jinnian has never been tangled up in any scandals... Even if there were a lot of reporters, it would never be exposed.
However! If she couldn't get the netizens' attention, she could get the news round to her 'investors' and let it spread across the business network in Beijing. By that time, as someone's wife, Qiao Anhao... would definitely be the b.u.t.t of jokes!
At that thought, a cold smile lifted the corners of Lin s.h.i.+yi's lips. Then, she pulled out her phone, and snapped a few shots of Lu Jinnian and Qiao Anhao.
