"It's not safe for a girl to stay in a hotel." Lu Jinnian paused before suggesting, "If you don't mind, do you want to stay with me?"
He was afraid that she would reject, so he added, "I have to work in the morning and I have to go out for dinners sometimes, so I don't spend much time there…"
Qiao Anhao thought that she would probably be the one disrupting him if she stayed... She turned, and Lu Jinnian paused, his palms soaked in sweat from anxiety. This was the first time he was so proactive towards a girl.
Their gazes collided, and after a moment, Qiao Anhao said, "If you don't mind, I won't mind either."
Lu Jinnian went blank momentarily, before joy coated his eyes. "Do you want to stay in the mansion or apartment?"
"They're both fine," she replied, reaching for her phone to cancel the hotel reservation.
The mansion out of the city was a little far and the mansion in the city was beside Xu Jiamu's mansion... After a moment's thought, he suggested, "How about Ming Zhu Garden? It's quite high and in the heart of the city, it'll be convenient if you need anything, and the view is pretty..."
Before he could finish his sentence, she interrupted. "Sure."
Lu Jinnian shut his mouth, heading towards Ming Zhu Garden.
When they pa.s.sed a 24-hour supermarket, Lu Jinnian stopped to get some daily necessities.
Even though Ming Zhu Garden was an apartment, it was two-story high and its size was comparable to the house in Mian Xiu Garden
Lu Jinnian brought the keys up, entering the apartment first before bending to grab a pair of male house slippers for her. "There's only male ones, tomorrow I'll get a female pair for you."
After she was snug in the slippers, he brought her upstairs. He pushed open a bedroom door on the North side. "Here's the main bedroom and there's a bed, do you mind?"
Qiao Anhao shook her head.
Before she could react, Lu Jinnian pa.s.sed the bag of daily necessities he had bought and pointed to the bathroom. "You should have a hot shower."
He then pulled her two suitcases to the changing room.
After her shower, Lu Jinnian had already hung up all her clothes in the changing room, even her makeup had been neatly arranged on the vanity.
Qiao Anhao wore a night gown with a low neck and hem line, exposing her slender legs and seductive collar bones. After the hot shower, her skin had a faint pink glow.
Lu Jinnian felt his throat go dry. Turning his head, he hurriedly said, "You should rest."
He then walked out of the bedroom.
Qiao Anhao fell into a deep sleep. The next day, when she woke up, it was close to 11 am.
The first thing she did was reach for her phone—she had fur unread texts from Lu Jinnian.
[Breakfast is in the cooler box.]
[I placed the keys on the dining table.]
[If you need anything, you can call this number.]
This one also contained a string of numbers.
