"I waited for half an hour! I'm starving, hurry and order something." Qiao Anhao rested her jaw on one hand and pushed the menu to Lu Jinnian with the other.
Lu Jinnian continued to stare at Qiao Anhao, not touching the menu.
Qiao Anhao waited a while longer before grabbing the menu back out of hunger. She turned to the waitress at the side, ordering four dishes and one soup.
The waitress repeated her order before asking, "Would you like anything to drink?"
In the past, Qiao Anhao would either drink tea or freshly squeezed orange juice, but this time, she tilted her head to the side to ponder. Without asking Lu Jinnian, she said, "One bottle of red wine, Château Lafite Rothschild."
"Sure, give me a minute." The waitress left politely after recording their order.
She was actually drinking.... Her mood must be worse than it seemed...
Lu Jinnian licked his lips. Just when he was about to call her, the conversation from the table behind them flitted over. "Have you heard? Qiao Anhao was dumped by Xu Jiamu."
Lu Jinnian's heart fell. He scanned the surroundings, not daring to look at Qiao Anhao, afraid to see tears or sorrow on her face.
Qiao Anhao heard the conversation as well. She turned to look at the table behind, there were three ladies who were from the Beijing business circle. Even though Qiao Anhao wasn't close to them, they had spoken several times.
"I heard about it but I'm not sure of the details."
"Xu Jiamu hooked up with Lin Qian Qian, I heard that their relations.h.i.+p has been going well. Recently when I met her, she had even claimed that Xu Jiamu had gotten her two limited edition Chanel bags."
"But Qiao Anhao grew up with Xu Jiamu, it hasn't even been a year and she was dumped?"
"Lin Qian Qian is younger than her and her family background is definitely much better… It's quite normal she got dumped."
Lu Jinnian kicked the chair behind him abruptly, walking over to the table ferociously. He glared at the three of them, then snarled, "Before discussing about others, you should make sure the person isn't around."
The three ladies who were engrossed in their conversation froze in shock before looking around. When they caught sight of Qiao Anhao behind them, they paled instantly, embarra.s.sment clouding their faces.
Qiao Anhao remained calm in her seat. She smiled faintly, greeting them.
The three ladies' face changed instantly, from white to green. They hurriedly greeted Qiao Anhao and stood up to foot the bill. Without even having their meal, they left.
Lu Jinnian returned back to his seat, his entire face black. After a while, he raised his head to look at Qiao Anhao, saying carefully, "Qiao Qiao, don't listen to their..."
Qiao Anhao knew that her divorce would definitely bring gossip, but her conscience was clear and she didn't care what others thought.
