When Lu Jinnian's a.s.sistant came back with his phone and voice recorder, he realized that the office was empty, and there were two porcelain cups on the table. The milk tea and coffee had already gone cold, so he went to ask the secretary to find out what had happened. When he found out who had come over, realization started to dawn on him. He hurriedly returned to his own office to get Lu Jinnian's clothes before leaving.
The a.s.sistant has been following Lu Jinnian for many years, he knew all about his habits that Qiao Anhao wasn't aware of.
Whenever he was upset, he would run, so he drove straight to the gym that Lu Jinnian frequented.
The gym instructor recognized him when he saw him coming and immediately led him to the private room that Lu Jinnian was in.
The instructor might have been able to tell that Lu Jinnian was in a bad state, for he left after leading the a.s.sistant to the room.
He knocked on the door but there wasn't a sound. When he entered, he saw Lu Jinnian running on a track with his headphones on.
The a.s.sistant didn't disrupt him. He placed the things that he had brought along at the side before sitting down silently.
Lu Jinnian counted every step he took inwardly. When he reached ten thousand, he finally stopped.
His entire body was soaked with sweat. His a.s.sistant stood up instantly to pa.s.s him a bottle of water.
Lu Jinnian tossed his head back, sweat dripping down his hair, and downed almost the entire bottle.
When he stopped, his a.s.sistant pulled out his phone and a voice recorder. "Mr. Lu, here's the things you wanted."
Lu Jinnian tossed the bottle in the bin, then used a towel to dry the sweat before reaching over to take the things.
"Mr. Lu, did you fight with Miss Qiao?"
Lu Jinnian ignored his question, silently raising the voice recorder to his ear to listen to the contents. When he made sure that there wasn't a problem, he placed it beside his phone and entered the shower.
As the hot water drizzled down his body, Lu Jinnian shut his eyes, replaying the events that had happened in the afternoon.
The scene in the afternoon was not what he had expected.
In his worst scenario, he had expected Qiao Anhao to scold him furiously, and because of that, he had prepared the recording of him and Han Ruchu.
But the mishap was in that he had gotten angry at her...
He took over Xu Enterprise only because Han Ruchu had killed their baby and hurt her, but the moment she had compared him to Xu Jiamu, he was infuriated.
But as he ran, using up all his energy, venting all his emotions, he clearly understood that his anger probably arose because of Xu Jiamu's words. Jiamu was his brother after all, and he wasn't able to disregard the emotions his words brought out, even though he knew that he was speaking out of fury. He just couldn't help feeling... angry. And Qiao Anhao's words just made his anger erupt.
After he showered, he wrapped a towel around his waist. His a.s.sistant carried his clothes to him. "Mr. Lu, here's the clothes you got me to order for tonight's dinner."
