Although she knew that he didn't choose himself out of love, Nan Xi's heart couldn't help but thump.
Thank you, Lu Jianxuan, thank you for your decisiveness.
And thank you for not hesitating.
Probably because of her pregnancy, on the way back, Nanxi drifted off to sleep a little while later.
Lu Jian Shen stretched out his arm while taking her head into his embrace, "If you're sleepy, take a nap."
Nanxi snuggled into his arms obediently and closed her eyes.
On the surface, she looked calm.
But only she knew that she had long been flustered in her heart.
She didn't know whether her decision today was right or wrong.
Nor did she know if he could really let go of Fang Qinglian.
But like she said to Nian Nian, for the sake of the baby, she wanted to try and try this one last time.
"Lu Jian Shen ah Lu Jian Shen, I gave you everything I have, I hope you won't let me lose the bet." In her heart, she said silently.
Nanxi knew that Fang Qinglian definitely couldn't sit still.
She guessed that Fang Qinglian would definitely look for her.
But she didn't expect it to be that fast.
"Nanxi, meet up!" Fang Qinglian opened the door when she called her.
"If you're looking for me to persuade me to get a divorce, then there's no need to do so, See Deep has already made it clear to you, there's no need for me to repeat it again."
"You're wrong, I don't mean anything else, I just want to ask you out for tea."
Fang Qinglian's answer was indeed unexpected by Nan Xi.
"I'm not available." Nanxi refused completely.
"I'm at that cafe from last time, if you don't come, I'll personally come to your door to find you, so you can see for yourself."
Nanxi was speechless and could only change her clothes and take a taxi over.
When she went, Fang Qinglian had already ordered coffee.
She sipped her coffee and smiled gently, not at all like a woman who had lost for love, instead she was red and smiling charmingly.
Nanxi could not figure out what kind of drugs she was selling in her jar, and could only be vigilant.
Just after sitting down, Fang Qinglian handed over an envelope.
"Open it and take a look." She said with a smile.
Nan Xi pinched that envelope, the material inside was hard and familiar to the touch.
She had already guessed that there should be photos inside.
If she guessed correctly, inside must be photos of Fang Qinglian when she used to be with Lu Jianxuan.
Although, she had known for a long time that the two of them had once been together as boyfriend and girlfriend, and had also heard a lot about their loving sweetness from outsiders.
However, hearing about it was one thing.
It was another thing when everything was framed in pictures and laid out alive in front of Nan Xi.
She admitted that she was not calm.
She was hard and jealous.
But, she couldn't admit defeat, and even more so, she couldn't let Fang Qinglian pry into the fear in her heart.
Tilting her head, Nan Xi smiled faintly before pushing the envelope in front of Fang Qinglian, "No need, I've already guessed it."
"Since you guessed it, why don't you dare to open it, Nanxi, you're afraid." Fang Qinglian stared straight into her eyes and said with certainty.
"Joke, why should I be afraid."
"Since you're not afraid, then open it, Nanxi, let me see your courage."
Nanxi admitted that she was enraged.
Moreover, she suddenly went crazy wanting to see those photos.
Wanting to see how they once were, how much they loved each other, and just how heartfelt it was that they could make Lu Jianxuan never forget her.
"Okay, I'll open it."
Taking a deep breath, Nan Xi tried to control her trembling hands, tore open the envelope, and then poured out the photos inside.
There were a lot of photos, a thick smash.
Pouring them out, they were scattered all over the place, and when she looked down, she saw those images of Fang Qinglian and Lu Jianxuan together.
At that time, they should still be small, both wearing school uniforms.
There were two people standing shoulder to shoulder;
There were the ones smiling gently at each other;
There were two people sitting together in the library reading books;
There was even the scene where Fang Qinglian stood on her tiptoes to kiss Lu Jianxuan under the sunlight.
It turned out that there was actually so much that had been between them, so much beauty.
"If it's not enough, I have a lot more at home."
"Nanxi, you clearly know why See Deep isn't divorced anymore? I know, you're very proud of yourself right now, but so what? Does he love you? Will a marriage without love be happy?"
"No matter how much Jian Shen rejects me, I know that I will always have a place in his heart, and it's impossible for him to completely give me up."
Almost, really almost, Nan Xi was crushed by these words of Fang Qinglian.
She was very sad, very hard.
Sad about his youth, his young age, which she could not participate in.
Sad that his lover, his once, was someone else.
But she had to be sensible too, didn't she?
No one could regret their youth, and there was no medicine for regret in the world.
Taking a breath, Nan Xi once again looked at Fang Qinglian, her gaze becoming clear and certain: ''Even if what you say is all true, so what? But it's all in the past, Fang Qinglian, you've already lost him."
"Now, he's my husband;I'm his wife, I just need to know that's enough."
"Is that so?" Fang Qinglian sneered, "Nanxi, do you dare to bet with me?"
"How can I bet?"
Ghostly as she was, Nanxi agreed.
Hearing her answer, the corner of Fang Qinglian's mouth hooked into a smile of determination.
"You call See Deep now and tell him to come here, you'll know the answer in five minutes."
Nanxi did as she was told, and she sent a weibo message to Lu Jianxuan.
That side quickly replied back, "Good."
At this time, Fang Qinglian beckoned and looked at the waiter, "Give me a fruit knife."
Getting the fruit knife, Fang Qinglian didn't even blink her eyes and directly made a cut on her hand.
Instantly, blood flowed from her hand.
Soon, Fang Qinglian's entire hand was covered in blood.
With that, she handed the knife to Nan Xi, "You make a cut as well, I want to see if See Deep will carry you to the hospital or carry me?"
Nanxi took the knife, and almost just short of that, she actually used that knife to make a cut on her own wrist.
She admitted that her heart was moved, and she wanted to know.
She didn't want much, even just a little bit of caring would do.
But the very moment the cold blade was close to her skin, she suddenly came to her senses.
Throwing down the knife, she coldly looked at Fang Qinglian, "I won't play this kind of boring game with you, if you want to play, you play by yourself."
"Hehe," Fang Qinglian laughed coldly, "Nanxi, in the end you are afraid, you don't dare, just like this, you still dare to say you love him."
"I do love him, but I won't use self-harm to gain his sympathy. Sympathy is just sympathy, not love."
Fang Qinglian laughed at her naivety: "If a man doesn't even have sympathy for a woman, how can he have love."
At this time, Lu Jianxuan stepped into the cafe.
Fang Qinglian looked at Nanxi, "He's coming, I told you, you'll lose, just wait."
She only felt that every step Lu Jian Shen took was like stepping on her heart, nervousness, panic, even fear.
Nanxi's heart, all of a sudden, hung in her throat.
