Chapter 63 Sign Here (3)

When the papers fell down, a gush of wind swept across Qiao Anhao’s face. Her long lashes trembled slightly and she opened her eyes. Lu Jinnian was pointing at a box at the bottom right of one the paper’s with his long fingers. In a cold voice, he commanded “Sign here” and left for the changing room. Once the changing room’s door closed, Qiao Anhao sat up and picked up the stack of papers. After just a glance, her brows furrowed. It was a cosmetics endorsement contract. And it was one of the top luxury brands that only took foreign models who were globally acclaimed. Lu Jinnian wanted her to sign the papers… Did that mean he was giving her this endorsement? It was so unreal that Qiao Anhao felt as though it was a dream. Lu Jinnian came out of the changing room in a fresh set of clothes. Holding onto a tie, he stood in font of a full length mirror. Through the mirror, his deep yet distant gaze swept accross Qiao Anhao. In an emotionless tone he asked, “Have you signed it?” Qiao Anhao snapped out of her daze, shaking her head. After much struggle, she lifted her head to look at Lu Jinnian, her eyes filled with disbelief and doubt. “Are you giving me this endorsement?” Lu Jinnian replied with an non-committal “yea”. He was really giving it to her… Happiness started spreading through her heart, but it was soon overshadowed by doubt. Why would he give her an endorsement deal out of nowhere? Lu Jinnian knotted his tie skilfully before turning to face Qiao Anhao. With an indifferent expression, he glanced at the contract she held, noticing the blank box. He frowned and asked with a frosty tone, “Why aren’t you signing? Aren’t you interested in a cosmetic endorsement?” Hearing Lu Jinnian’s voice, Qiao Anhao once again snapped back to the present from her running thoughts and reached for a pen. But before she signed the papers, she couldn’t help wanting to clear her suspicion. “Why are you giving me this endorsement?” “You deserve it,” Lu Jinnian replied again without any warmth. She deserved it? Qiao Anhao couldn’t understand his words. Lu Jinnian stared at her confusion. Silence fell on the room until he threw out another five cold words, “Your reward for yesterday night.” Reward for yesterday night… so it was a reward for using her body yet again. Qiao Anhao froze for about five seconds before comprehending Lu Jinnian’s meaning. She tightened her clasp on the pen she held, the tiny bit of happiness she felt vanishing in an instance.
