Bringing the Nation's Husband Home Chapter 218
Song Xiangsi, who sat next to Zhao Meng, couldn't help but burst into laughter when she heard this. After racking her brain over it, she stared at the cold Lu Jinnian whose head was turned. She took the crayfish from her own box and handed it over. In a low voice, she teased, "Mr. Lu, why don't you play a little longer."
Lu Jinnian glanced at Song Xiangsi, who looked like she was enjoying his situation a little too much, with a blank look. He originally wanted to ignore it straight away, but from the corner of his eyes, he saw Qiao Anhao completely focused on the crayfish meat. Lu Jinnian then raised his hand, going straight for the crayfish extended to him and peeled it elegantly. He put the meat into Qiao Anhao's box.
Song Xiangsi instantly took back her jeering expression and sneered coldly at Lu Jinnian. She put her box back in front of her and started peeling a crayfish. Later, as though she having thought of something, she sighed. "Peeling crayfish is really fun! A hand full of oil, hehehe... I've never played such a fun game..."
The table that the staff had built was wide and long. Qiao Anxia sat directly opposite Qiao Anhao and Lu Jinnian, and there were many people chatting all around them. She could only occasionally hear a few words that were said opposite her.
When Lu Jinnian turned his head, Qiao Anxia looked over at Qiao Anhao, never letting her focus leave the expressionless man.
Lu Jinnian looked no different from any other day, as cold as usual. However, perhaps it was just her imagination, but there was an indescribable tenderness emanating from him at this moment.
Qiao Anxia heard him say flatly, "I was bored, so I peeled them for fun" Then she saw Lu Jinnian swap his box for Qiao Anhao's box.
Since she sat down, she had noticed that Lu Jinnian only peeled but didn't eat any crayfish. From the bottom of her heart, she was bewildered as to why he would do this. Yet when she saw heard those words, she suddenly had a strong premonition - Lu Jinnian had peeled his crayfish to give to Qiao Anhao from the very start.
In Qiao Anxia's mind, she didn't know why, but the memory of that night she had bumped into Lin Shiyi in the restroom at Cheng Yang's party at The Royal Palace resurfaced. The actress had told her, "Then how are you so sure that the person Lu Jinnian likes isn't Qiao Anhao?"
Back then, she was completely confident and 100% convinced that the person Lu Jinnian loved wasn't Qiao Anhao.
But now, she was no longer so sure.
Who could say if it was because she had a guilty conscience, but the more Qiao Anxia saw Lu Jinnian and Qiao Anhao sitting together, the more she felt that there was something between them.
These few years, she had always been very curious as to who was the woman Lu Jinnian loved and what kind of person she was. But she had never thought to turn her suspicions towards Qiao Anhao.
An indescribable feeling came over Qiao Anxia's heart. A kind of suspicious feeling that grew stronger until, finally, she couldn't help but forcefully shake her head.
Even though Qiao Anhao and Lu Jinnian's relationship had been neutral all these years, they had known each other for many years after all... plus, Xu Jiamu. And right now, they were also working on the same tv series, so that's why they'd grown abnormally close.
The whole motive behind Lin Shiyi's words was to pick the sisters' relationship apart. When Qiao Qiao’s parents passed away, she was left with only one relative in the world. How could Qiao Anxia then question her?
