Mr. Wei remained silent, waiting patiently for Lu Jinnian to continue.
"The return I am looking for is something that Mr. Wei has."
Mr. Wei seemed to have thought of something. "Mr. Lu, you mean..."
Without waiting for him to finish his sentence, Lu Jinnian nodded. "You're right, I want Eternal Heart."
Eternal Heart is one of the ten top diamonds in the world. Thirty years ago, Mr. Wei's grandfather bought it for one billion RMB in an auction in England. Ever since, it has been placed in Wei Enterprise.
During the years, many people have come forward to ask for the Eternal Heart but not one of them had offered such an astonis.h.i.+ng sum as he had.
Mr. Wei smiled. " Mr. Lu, you seem like you want it at any cost?"
Lu Jinnian remained calm, a decisive glint flas.h.i.+ng in his distant eyes. "Yea, at any cost!"
Regardless of what conditions the other wanted, he was determined to get the Eternal Heart!
"Mr. Lu, I'm sure you know that Eternal Heart is not for sale."
"If you think the conditions aren't enough, then let me add on something else." Lu Jinnian retrieved a contract from the folder he carried around and pushed it over.
Mr. Wei opened the contract and realized that it was blank, with only Lu Jinnian's signature at the bottom of the page.
Startled, he exclaimed, "Mr. Lu, you're giving me an empty contract? Which means I can add on my own conditions?"
Lu Jinnian nodded, continuing without hesitation, "Mr. Wei, I'm sure this contract will be enough to move you so why don't we just come to a conclusion, and as for the conditions, you can take your time to think and I'll try my best to fulfill them."
Mr. Wei stilled, he knew that Lu Jinnian was determined to get the Eternal Heart, but he never expected him to go so far.
He sunk into silence for a moment. "Mr. Lu, can you tell me the reasons behind your desire?"
Lu Jinnian didn't try to beat about the bush, in a faint tone that was filled with emotion, he said, "Because my wife likes it."
Yes, Qiao Anhao liked it.
It was high school when he found out that she liked the Eternal Heart.
At that time, the school had organized a dinner, and Qiao Anhao, Qiao Anxia and Xu Jiamu had planned an event, but they were missing an actor hence they approached him.
He had never been into these activities, but through it he would be able to practice with her so he agreed.
Qiao Anhao was the scriptwriter for the event and she named it "Eternal Heart".
In the script, she acted alongside Lu Jinnian. That night, after they had practiced their lines, it started to rain heavily. They both waited inside the cla.s.sroom since they didn't bring their umbrellas.
Lu Jinnian was always a person with few words, especially now that he was with someone who he had loved for so long.
She sat at the desk in front of him with a crayon in her hands, doodling.
He stared at her back. She had a slender waist that fit perfectly in her uniform, her hair was tied into a high ponytail, the ends lightly brus.h.i.+ng against her graceful neck. As she doodled, the sound of the crayon merged with the rain, bringing about a calming atmosphere.
