Chapter 1798: An Lan, I Think… I’m Falling For You
Xu Baohan’s gaze deepened, his brows furrowing imperceptibly.
It wasn’t that he hadn’t thought about this question before, but later he realized that love wasn’t reliable.
He didn’t know why, but when he saw the woman in front of him say those words, he felt that if she was a book, then unknowingly, he seemed to have turned to a new and exciting chapter; this chapter stirred his heart, which had been still as stagnant water.
He had really never met a woman like her. She loved money and loved to earn money. When someone scratched her car, she would demand a huge amount of money for compensation. She loved money, but she knew how to help needy people. She loved money, and because she had money, she had the confidence to wait for love.
“An Lan, I think… I kind of like you,” he pursed his dry lips and suddenly said in a low voice.
An Lan’s heart skipped a beat, mainly because his voice was so pleasant and his looks were so attractive. It was impossible for her to remain calm when he said that he liked her.
However, she wasn’t a little girl after all, and had experienced many things. She calmed down after half a minute and smiled. “Chief Judge Xu, you really spare no effort to convince me to be with you. You even resort to deception.”
Xu Baohan was surprised. How could she say he was deceiving her? He hadn’t thought about it at first, but just now, his mind was in a mess.
“Just a few minutes ago, I asked you if you liked me, but you were silent. In a few minutes, you say you like me?” An Lan asked with a bitter smile.
Xu Baohan’s emotions were complicated. She had the ability to change his mind. What could he do?
“An Lan, your thoughts are good, but what about your parents?” He reminded her. Even though he had only met them once in the mental hospital, he knew that her parents would not tolerate An Lan’s thoughts.
“They don’t agree with me, of course.”
An Lan’s eyes flashed with hurt at the mention of her parents, “But so what? I’m the one who’s getting married, and I’m the one who’s going to live with the man for the rest of my life, so it’s up to me to decide. When I was studying abroad, I admired the local people’s views on marriage. They don’t make do and wouldn’t force themselves to be together when they no longer love each other. A few days ago, when I went to Paris alone and saw couples on the streets, I felt very lonely and envious. That’s why I agreed to my aunt to have the blind date.
“But then I came to a realization. Can I be sure that I won’t feel lonely after being married? Then why do so many female clients come to me with expressions of sadness, loneliness and resentment? If I’m married, can I tour the world with my husband with great pleasure if we have different views on the world?”
Xu Baohan fell into a long silence. He had never thought about these questions. He only knew that he would get married, have a child and live a simple life.
In his office, many senior colleagues always told him that he should find a passable marriage partner who was not too pretty, had a stable job and a well-matched family.
He had thought that he would live such a routine life as the others.
But An Lan’s appearance was like a bolt of lightning that split his world apart and brought a dazzling light into his world.
“An Lan, perhaps you are an accident in my quiet life.” After a very, very long time, when An Lan mentioned that she wanted to leave by car, he spoke in a husky voice. His gaze was as deep as the sea in the dark night.
