Qiao Anhao had never studied french, and so she didn't understand what the two of them were chatting about. However, as they both wore smiles on their faces, and every now and then, they'd kiss when no one was looking, you could make out that they were definitely telling sweet nothings to one another.
On the way down from the top floor, Lu Jinnian and Qiao Anhao didn't make any contact. Qiao Anhao secretly glanced over at him a few times, but he still had that look on his face as though she didn't exist.
When the elevator doors opened on the first floor, Lu Jinnian's phone rang. He accepted the call. Qiao Anhao, who stood behind him, heard him say in English, "I'll be right out."
Qiao Anhao then trailed behind him out of the hotel. He held his phone up and scanned the area around him. When he noticed a beautiful blonde woman standing in front of a red Ferrari, he hung up and strode up to her.
The woman seemed really happy to see Lu Jinnian. So much so, she rushed over and gave him a hug. The two of them stood by the side of the road, whispering about something, then got into the car.
Qiao Anhao's mind didn't quite register what had happened until the car slowly drove away. She blinked, snapping suddenly back to her senses. She then hastily ran over to an empty taxi by the roadside. She pulled open the door, and told the driver to follow Lu Jinnian's car.
Eventually, the red Ferrari stopped in front of a restaurant. Lu Jinnian and that blonde woman stepped out of the car and walked inside. Qiao Anhao paid the taxi fare and followed them in. By then, the two of them were already sitting at a table by the window.
The woman was holding the menu, telling her order to a waitress. It looked like she was asking Lu Jinnian for his thoughts. She even said a few words to him with a bright smile. Lu Jinnian calmly gave a nod and inadvertently turned his head to see that Qiao Anhao had walked into the restaurant. It was just a quick glance, and he pulled his eyes away from her.
Qiao Anhao found a spot to sit that was near Lu Jinnian and the woman. Despite having not eaten all day, she wasn't hungry, yet she ordered a steak meal anyway.
Lu Jinnian and the blonde woman sat opposite each other. Qiao Anhao didn't know what they were chatting so cheerfully about, but every now and then, the blonde woman would let out a candid laugh.
Qiao Anhao may have been quite a distance from them, but she could still hear the sound of the woman's laughter, which fell indescribably hard on the ears.
Though Lu Jinnian's expression hadn't changed much from the start, as Qiao Anhao had known him for so long, she could tell that his and that woman's relations.h.i.+p had to be pretty good.
Qiao Anhao and the blonde woman had ordered the same meal. The waiter served their dishes at the same time.
When Qiao Anhao grabbed the fork to cut her steak, Lu Jinnian coincidentally elegantly cut the woman's steak with his knife and fork.
Qiao Anhao stared at Lu Jinnian's hand for a while, and couldn't resist pouting. With a fuming sense of jealousy burning in her heart, she forcefully stabbed the steak on her plate.
What kind of relations.h.i.+p did Lu Jinnian have with that woman?
Lu Jinnian hadn't believed her explanation and even said that he never wanted to see her again. Could it be that the real reason had something to do with this woman?
