Chapter 1812: I Want to Protect You
An Lan was stunned. After a while, under his dark gaze, she said, “Because he thinks that the food outside isn’t clean, but I’m different from him.”
“Then ask the married people around you. Do they still eat out after they get married?” Xu Baohan looked as if he was in a business negotiation, saying each word with confidence.
“First of all, you don’t know much about my financial ability. You think that the meal is too expensive for me.” Xu Baohan leaned back into his chair and smiled calmly. “An Lan, I can tell you clearly that before we get married, if you want to eat at a place like this, I can afford it. After we get married, we can eat out occasionally. We are not young anymore, aren’t you tired of eating out?”
An Lan was speechless. When she was in her early twenties, she loved to drink with her friends and enjoy things that money could buy. But gradually she started to get tired of this lifestyle. Sometimes, she preferred to go home and watch TV, read a book. As too meals, in the past she had been so busy with work that she ate out every day. In the end, she got gastroenteritis and was in so much pain…
Later on, she found that cooking at home was actually healthier.
“An Lan, if you were 25 or younger, I definitely wouldn’t have asked you out,” Xu Baohan said sincerely, “If you were, you and I wouldn’t match. Even if I liked you, I wouldn’t have pursued you because I couldn’t give you the life you wanted.”
An Lan smiled. “I have a feeling that you like me for my age?”
“No…” Xu Baohan paused and twirled the white glass in his hand. “When we were on our blind date, I liked your shameless way.”
He raised his head, a hint of a smile appearing in his dark eyes. “You knew that we were on a blind date, yet you pretended to have a meal with a friend and mocked me. Your poor acting skills and shamelessness left me in awe.”
An Lan’s lips twitched, her face turning red in embarrassment. “Chief Judge Xu, are you going to finish this meal or not? I’m surprised that you dared to mention the blind date. You even made me pay for a glass of 35-year-old fruit juice. I will remember it forever.”
“If I didn’t make you pay, how would I have gotten your WeChat contact?” After Xu Baohan said that, he cleared his throat and took a sip from his glass, blocking half of his firm face with the glass.
An Lan was stunned, but when she came back to her senses, she suddenly understood. For some reason, a warm feeling rose in her chest. So that was what he had been up to.
The music of violin rose in the dining room.
An Lan said cheekily, “So you took a liking to me at the blind date.”
“I didn’t,” Xu Baohan denied immediately. “I just had never met a woman like you before. After that, your display of strength in the parking lot made me think that no one could bully you. I’m usually very busy at work, so I can’t spend a lot of time with my wife, so I hope that my future wife can protect herself well.”
“I’m sorry, although I’m very strong, I have my moments of weakness. I also want a man who can protect me.” An Lan rolled her eyes. “You’re looking for a female vajra. But I’m not.”
“That’s what I want for a suitable partner that I don’t truly like.” Xu Baohan looked at her calmly. “After I got to know you better, I realized that I want to protect you.”
An Lan’s heart missed a beat when she saw his burning gaze.
He was flirting with her again.
