Bringing the Nation's Husband Home Chapter 142
Lu Jinnian paused, seemingly in deep thought, then continued in a light tone, "Afterwards, because of an incident, I started liking rainy days."
Just like that, Qiao Anhao's heart skipped a beat. The reason he liked rainy days was the same as hers... But she started liking them because of someone while he started liking them because of an incident...
This was the first time after their marriage that she had spoken to Lu Jinnian so calmly. She started to get braver, asking out her suspicion, "What incident made you like rainy days?"
Lu Jinnian stared out at the pouring rain, his expression turning sorrowful. "That was the first time I got close to the most important person in my life..."
Lu Jinnian stopped, suddenly realizing what he was saying.
Qiao Anhao stood beside him, focusing all her attention on his words. But after waiting for a long time, he still remained silent, not finishing his sentence. She turned her head suspiciously, looking up at him.
Through the window, Lu Jinnian caught sight of Qiao Anhao's expectant face as she stared at him.
The incident five years ago had taken away his right to have her. Even if he loved her, it had to be hidden deep in his heart, but just now, when he had wasn't paying attention, he had almost exposed himself.
Lu Jinnian's throat moved, his senses overtaking his emotions. Lightly, he said, "Forget it, it isn't worth mentioning."
"Oh," Qiao Anhao replied softly, not saying anymore. She stared out at the pouring rain, her feelings dampening.
Lu Jinnian had said that he had met the most important person in his life on a rainy day, was it the girl that he liked?
So they both met the person they love the most on a rainy day, just that the person she loved the most was him and the person he loved the most was someone else...
Just moments ago she was cheered by their common interest, but now, she couldn't help feeling sad and bitter.
Their conversation ended and the room fell into silence once more. They both stood in front of the window, gazing out at the rain, lost in their thoughts.
He was thinking about her.
She was thinking about him.
The rain in Beijing was often short-lived, coming suddenly and ending quickly. No more than half an hour later, the big storm had calmed to a small drizzle. In the end, the dark clouds faded and a faint ray of light could even be seen.
That was when Qiao Anhao came back to her senses, realizing that both of them had been standing in front of the window for such a long time.
She turned and saw that Lu Jinnian was still lost in his thoughts, staring out at the window. Remembering that she was called up by him, she asked, "Is there anything you need me for?"
