Bringing the Nation's Husband Home Chapter 153
The moment Lu Jinnian heard Qiao Anhao's voice, he came back to his senses. In his fury, he had actually lost control of his senses and called her....
He was about to ask her if she was alright.
Ever since five years ago, he had lost the right to show care for her. Because he couldn't love her, he decided not to show even an ounce of his love for her.
All these years, he had wanted to reach out to her multiple times, but every single time, he had forced himself away. He was afraid that he would lose control of himself. After they had married, he seldom went home, afraid that the more time they spent together, the harder it would become to keep up his facade. Even so, the moment he learned that she would be upset, he lost control.
Lu Jinnian clenched the phone, and after a moment of silence, he managed to calm himself down. Speaking in a low voice, he tried to sound calm and nonchalant. " I saw the news on weibo..."
Indeed, he had called because of the scandal... Qiao Anhao lowered her lashes, staying silent for a time before replying. "Yesterday, I didn't notice that I was being photographed. I'm sorry for dragging you into this."
He didn't call to blame her about the news. Besides, he didn't mind the scandal one bit, in fact, he was quite fond of it... Lu Jinnian opened his mouth but didn't know how to respond. He lifted his head and brushed his hair in frustration before changing the topic, "Yesterday night, you wanted..."
The moment he said those four words, he realized how bad he was at changing a topic. Increasingly more frustrated, he loosened his tie before taking two deep breaths. Without saying another word, he hung up.
Hearing the line go dead, Qiao Anhao blinked slowly, pondering over Lu Jinnian's words, "Yesterday night, you wanted..." He was about to ask what she wanted for last night?
Her face sunk as she looked out the window. Taking a deep breath, she looked towards Zhao Meng and asked, "Recently, are there any advertisements better than the ones Lin Shiyi has?"
Zhao Meng thought for a while before replying, "I heard there's a popular variety show that seems to be inviting her."
Qiao Anhao nodded, not saying a word. After a while, she lifted her phone and typed a message to Lu Jinnian.
Lu Jinnian had been clenching his phone ever since he had hung up. In a daze, he felt his phone vibrate. He looked down and saw a message from Qiao Anhao with a short line, "I want to be XX variety show's guest next week."
