Growing Fond of You, Mr Nian - Chapter 1804 - Scheming Man
Chapter 1804: Scheming Man
“It will come,” Xu Baohan replied confidently, the determination in his eyes unshakable.
An Lan wasn’t sure anymore under his gaze.
But it was too late, she really didn’t want to argue with him over such a boring topic. “I’ve got to go. No matter what, thank you for today…”
“You’re welcome. The next meal is on me or on you. It’s up to you,” Xu Baohan said calmly.
An Lan looked at him blankly.
Xu Baohan wondered what kind of makeup this woman used. Her eyes were so bright and seductive even in the middle of the night. Didn’t they say that women’s eyeliners would fall out if they stayed up all night?
“I did help you today, but I’m now your suitor, and you said I should treat you to meals since I’m a man, so I’ve decided to treat you, but if you refuse my invitation, then I have to ask you to treat me to a meal to thank me for the favor I did you.”
An Lan opened her mouth. After a long while, she spat out two words, “Scheming man.”
“I’ll take that as a compliment.” Xu Baohan smiled. He rarely smiled, and it was stunning.
An Lan blinked and grabbed her bag. “Whatever, drive safe on your way back.”
After walking for a while, she looked back and saw that the car was still there. She felt warmed inside at the sight.
After returning home, An Lan took a quick shower and threw herself into the soft bed.
She thought she would fall asleep immediately, but in the end, she couldn’t. When she closed her eyes, all she could think about was Xu Baohan’s words.
She got up and drank a small glass of red wine. Fianally, she fell asleep.
However, her sleep was really not that good. She dreamt that she was driving and then crashed into Xu Baohan’s car, and he kept nagging her about the criminal law.
An Lan’s head hurt from his nagging, and then she was woken up by the ringing of her phone.
She grabbed the speaker as if she had been saved. “Hello…”
“Hello your head,” Li Yuchen’s furious voice came from the phone. “It’s already 10:30 am, alright? My client, Wan Qi, has already been here for a long time. Why aren’t you here as my assistant? Do you not want your share?”
An Lan sat up immediately. “It’s so late?”
“Of course. You’re not very competent as an assistant. This share…”
“In your dreams. I’ll be there right away.” An Lan threw her phone down.
In less than 10 minutes, she set out looking sharp.
Fortunately, it was not the rush hour and it only took her half an hour to arrive at the law firm.
However, by then, only Li Yuchen was sitting in the conference room. There was an empty teacup on the table opposite to him.
“He left?” An Lan threw her bag onto the sofa.
“Of course, it’s already past 11. We were supposed to meet at 9, but you completely forgot about it.” Li Yuchen crossed his arms and snorted. “Looks like we have to split it 60-40. After all, you’re not working hard.”
An Lan calmly rubbed the spot between her brows. “I drank too much last night. By the way, do you know who I bumped into last night?”
“Who?” Li Yuchen’s interest was piqued. “It can’t be Xu Baohan, can it?”
“You’re right.” An Lan snapped her fingers beautifully. “He’s a senior alumna of mine. Last night, we went out for dinner and sang in KTV, and he even drove me home. We stayed in the car together until four in the morning before returning home.”
“F*ck,” Li Yuchen stood up from the sofa excitedly. “The two of you are so fast… Hehe, why didn’t you guys go to the hotel, or you could have brought him home.”
