Bringing the Nation's Husband Home Chapter 143
Only after Qiao Anhao spoke did Lu Jinnian remember that he had called for her. He had wanted to clarify that there was nothing going on between him and Qiao Anxia, but since they weren't lovers or a real married couple, it didn't make sense for him to do so.
He remained silent for a long time, trying to figure out how to go about explaining. In the end, he just randomly asked, "What about you? Don't you have anything to ask me?"
He was the one who had called her up, and now he was asking her what she wanted to ask him... Qiao Anhao was struck dumb by his question. Shaking her head, she looked at him questioningly, "What should I ask?"
Lu Jinnian thought that Qiao Anhao didn't understand his meaning, hence he hinted, "This afternoon when we were eating lunch with Qiao Anxia, you didn't have anything to ask me?"
The mention of Qiao Anxia dampened Qiao Anhao's spirits that had been slightly lifted when Lu Jinnian ate and watched the rain with her. Moodily, she stared out of the window in silence.
Lu Jinnian stood beside her with surprising patience. He continued to wait, giving time for Qiao Anhao to speak first. But after a long time, she still remained silent, and disappointment engulfed him.
What was he expecting when he had asked her that? Expecting her to mind what Qiao Anxia had said about him getting together with her?
Regardless of which woman was with him or had something going on with him, she had always been indifferent. Why should she start minding now?
Self-depreciation floated into his eyes. He couldn't help laughing at himself mockingly, as though he was really defeated by her. Helplessly, he said, "Me and Qiao Anxia..."
The moment Qiao Anhao heard her sister's name, she couldn't help feeling a deep sense of fear surrounding her. At that moment, she was terrified that Lu Jinnian would say that they had gotten together. Unconsciously, she clenched her hands into fists, her lips tightening. She interrupted him with, "My sister is a good choice, she's pretty, has a good background, there's nothing bad about her... "
Before she could finish her sentence though, Lu Jinnian rudely commanded, "Go and bath."
