Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home - Chapter 244
However, Qiao Anhao eventually couldn’t help but pick her phone up, when Lu Jinnian took a shower that night. The tip of her fingers tapped onto Weibo to find page after page of nasty comments about her. What’s more, the news lingered there for twelve whole hours, and it was only growing more ferocious. Lu Jinnian’s fans only commented under her name, begging her to let him go. Now they had managed to skyrocket [Let our dream man go] to the most searched topic.
She tapped onto it to and looked at the dozen million comments, unable to find any that supported her… Oh, no, there wasn’t even a neutral comment. The screen was filled with words like [You’re not worthy of our dream man!], [You vile woman], [Leave the entertainment industry], [I hope you get thrown away by my hubby!].
“What are you looking at?”
Suddenly, behind Qiao Anhao, the bed sank, and Lu Jinnian’s usual voice reached her ears.
She swiftly locked the phone screen and turned around, pushing herself into Lu Jinnian’s arms. “Nothing… I was just bored, so I was browsing Taobao 1 .”
Even though Lu Jinnian didn’t see for himself what Qiao Anhao was looking at, but he knew she was lying. His eyes flickered for a moment, but he went along with her lie and asked, “So did you see anything you want to buy?”
“Nah.” Qiao Anhao shook her head and laid her little head on Lu Jinnian’s chest. Then, she slightly looked up at his beautiful jawline and curved her brows. “I thought I saw something I wanted to buy, but as I was shopping, I remembered how we went crazy shopping not too long ago, like we were going to take the whole ACR back with us. Then I thought that I really didn’t need it… ai… it left me so disappointed…”
Qiao Anhao wore a beaming smile as she said this. Just when she finished, she even put on a troubled look on her face and let out a sigh.
Yet, though it was just for a second, Lu Jinnian clearly caught the look of helplessness and sadness the instant she lowered her eyelids. Yet she pulled her lips and continued to wear a bright smile.
Lu Jinnian stared at her forced smile, and pain weighed on his heart. With a gulp, he reached his arm out and stroked her hair. “Qiao Qiao, if you’re unhappy, you don’t have to smile.”
Qiao Anhao was stunned by Lu Jinnian’s words.
So he could tell?
It was just for a second, but Qiao Anhao’s smile bloomed like a flower once again. “Oh it’s nothing… What’s there for me to be unhappy about? It’s just being shouted at, right? It’s not like I haven’t been shouted at whilst growing up. It’s just that this time there are lots more people shouting at me. Whatever, they’re just words, they can’t hurt me. They basically can’t touch me, so why would I be unhappy…”
The more Qiao Anhao spoke so care-freely, the more Lu Jinnian’s heart hurt. Eventually, he couldn’t take it anymore. He sat up and pulled her into a tight hug.
Qiao Anhao suddenly stopped her words. After a while, she tried her best to relax her voice, and asked half-jokingly, “Why did you suddenly hug me out of nowhere?”
Lu Jinnian tightened his arms around her, and said in a dull voice, “Qiao Qiao, I know that you’re upset.”
The rigid smile on Qiao Anhao’s face gently froze.
Lu Jinnian spoke again in a quiet voice. “If you’re sad, just say it. You don’t have to hold back in front of me.”
