Qiao Anxia had used Cheng Yang's phone to reply to Lin Wei, so she had specially dolled herself up thinking that it was him. The moment she saw her mistake, her expression turned confused. Even though there wasn't anything between her and Cheng Yang, she started to feel unease as though caught red handed. She gripped onto the strap on her bag, forcing out a smile. "Miss Qiao."
Qiao Anxia smiled at her warmly before signaling for the waiter to order a cup of coffee. Turning to Lin Wei, she asked, "You like Cheng Yang, don't you?"
Lin Wei started to feel uneasy, assuming that she was trying to assert her authority as the wife.
Qiao Anxia smiled at the waiter when they put the coffee on the table. Reaching for the spoon, she stirred the coffee leisurely before taking a sip. "You don't have to be nervous, I know you like him, that's why I asked you out today. I just wanted to know if you love him?"
"I..." Lin Wei glanced at her expression. She didn't seem like she was here to catch a mistress, but she couldn't understand her intentions. After a moment’s hesitation, she remained silent, unable to reply to her question.
Lin Wei hung her head low, biting onto her lip. After struggling for a long while, she apologized softly, "I'm sorry Miss Qiao, I indeed like Cheng Yang but I’ve never had any intention to break up his marriage, I just wanted to be friends with him and see that he's happy… I'm really very sorry for any unease that I may have brought about, I'll avoid him from now on, treating him as a stranger..."
"You don't have to," Qiao Anxia interrupted.
Lin Wei lifted her head to look at her questioningly.
Qiao Anxia tightened her grip on the cup. After a long moment of silence, she downed the entire cup. Curling her lips into a bright smile, she said, "I came to find you today to seek your help."
After nearly three hours of conversation, they were finally done.
Qiao Anxia remained calm while Lin Wei was in a daze, unable to process her words.
Qiao Anxia waved for the waiter for another coffee. After downing half a cup, she glanced at Lin Wei, who was regaining her senses. "Miss Lin, I’m sure you understand what I said. Are you agreeable?"
Lin Wei remained silent.
"If you agree, I'll arrange everything else."
Lin Wei lowered her eyes in contemplation.
"Miss Lin, it's a great opportunity for you, are you sure you don't want it?"
Lin Wei moved her lips, lifting her head to return Qiao Anxia's gaze. She stared for a while before finally nodding. "I'll do it."
Moisture welled up in Qiao Anxia’s eyes, but she forced a smile on her face. With her whole soul, she replied softly, "Thank you."
