The elevator sunk into silence that lasted till the top floor.
Lu Jinnian stood still in the elevator seemingly deep in thought. After a moment, he said in a low voice, "If possible, I hope that you will never appear in front of me again."
Without waiting for any response, he left with his luggage.
Qiao Anhao stood in a daze, watching alone in the elevator as he disappeared.
She had already told him that she was in the hospital, so that's why she couldn't turn up, but he hadn't believed... He had even said that he didn't want to have anything to do with her and wanted her never to appear before him again... In that instance, her enthusiasm faded.
Her eyes darkened, and she hung her head low, her lips in a straight line.
Only when the elevator doors were about to shut did she finally snap out of her thoughts and slowly left the elevator. When she walked past a corner, she saw Lu Jinnian talking on the phone at the end of the corridor.
She glanced at her room number on the hotel card, walking along the corridor towards the number. When she approached him, she realized that her room was directly in front of his.
He glanced over, his gaze cold. In fluent English, he said into the phone, "See you tonight." He then hung up and entered his room without acknowledging her.
Qiao Anhao had slept on the plane, but she was still sleepy from the poor quality rest. After taking a bath, she laid down on the bed, her mind filled with the conversation with Lu Jinnian.
He seemed to be determined, as though he really didn't want to have anything to do with her anymore.
When it was just the two of them, it wasn't impossible to get close to him.. Was Zhao Meng's solution the only way?
Qiao Anhao climbed out of the bed and walked towards the pill box that Zhao Meng had stuffed into her hands. She stared at it for a moment more before making up her mind.
Regardless, she would definitely find an opportunity to 'sleep' with him.
Just as what Zhao Meng had said, even if he didn't forgive her afterwards, she could still use the baby as a weapon.
After making the decision, she didn't sleep the entire night, leaning against the door while waiting for any movement in the opposite room.
Lu Jinnian was probably getting rid of his jet lag, for he stayed inside the entire morning, but at 1 pm, a waiter entered his room with food.
When he left the room, it was 5 pm. He was in a fresh suit and looked das.h.i.+ng as usual. Before he left, he glanced over at her door, seemingly noticing her spying.
Qiao Anhao hurriedly ran back to her room to grab her wallet, her phone, and the pill box before leaving as well.
She slammed the door on her way out, attracting Lu Jinnian's, who glanced over, attention.
As she thought about her scheme, she lowered her head guiltily.
When they entered the elevator, there was another couple inside who seemed to be French.
