There were many cafes in that area.
Shen Jingyan chose the most expensive and relatively quiet place.
Qiao Nian ordered an iced drink and sat there waiting first.
She thought that Shen Jingyan would arrive on the dot, but she didn’t expect that soon after she sat down, a man in a suit and shoes walked in from outside.
“Hello, welcome, table for one?” The waiter in the coffee shop thought he was alone and was about to arrange a place for him.
Shen Jingyan had already seen the girl sitting by the window. A deep light flashed through his eyes, and he said gently, “Table for two, I have an appointment. She’s right there.”
The waiter looked in the direction he pointed, just in time to see Qiao Nian’s side profile. She nodded and said, “I’ll lead you there.”
Shen Jingyan looked to be very easygoing, and nodded, walking to Qiao Nian’s table behind the waiter.
He greeted the girl sitting inside. “Nian Nian, have you been waiting for a long time?”
He then turned around and said to the waiter, “A cup of Blue Mountain. No sugar.”
He turned to Qiao Nian and asked, unable to conceal his stunned expression, “Nian Nian, what kind of cake do you want to eat? Order one.”
Qiao Nian saw the waiter look over, waiting for her to place an order. She held the spoon in her slender hand and stirred the iced drink in the cup, saying casually, “No, I don’t like sweets.”
She didn’t like sweets? Shen Jingyan had seen her only a few times, and his impression of her was still of a child. He was a little embarrassed when he heard that, and he said to the waiter, “Then, just a cup of Blue Mountain. No sugar.”
The waiter closed the order with an excellent attitude. “Okay, please wait a moment.”
She turned around to make the coffee.
A cup of coffee here was more than 100 yuan, which was more expensive in small places like Rao City.
After sitting down opposite her, Shen Jingyan took off his suit jacket and rolled up his wrist sleeves before looking at the girl.
His eyes flashed.
In his impression, of the two daughters of the Qiao Family, Qiao Chen was more well-behaved, sensible, and could dress up. Although Qiao Nian’s facial features were good, she was more simple in dressing. It seemed that she didn’t like to dress up, or was incapable of doing so. Whichever it was, it was a waste of her pretty face.
Before he came today, he thought he would see Qiao Nian wearing a hoodie in a casual appearance.
He never expected her to come dressed in an exquisite suspender skirt, her long black hair draped over her shoulders and a small hairpin between her hair. She had fair skin and a delicate complexion, and even without makeup, her outstanding beauty was breathtaking.
Furthermore, she was only 18 years old. If she grew up and her facial features became more mature and profound, she would be an absolute stunner!
Even if such a stunner was put in Beijing, she would not be inferior!
So many powerful people in Beijing had a thing for faces like hers.
Unruly, beautiful, and dazzling.
The Shen family had an opportunity to be up for sale!
Seeing Qiao Nian’s appearance, he couldn’t understand what was wrong with his own sister. Why did she insist on squeezing out such a beautiful daughter who could bring her fortune, letting her find her biological parents, and acknowledging her roots and ancestors?
He felt deep regret inside, but ambition won. He slowly retracted his gaze and said gently, “Nian Nian, we haven’t seen each other for many years. I didn’t expect that in a blink of an eye, the little pea that reached my waist has now grown into a big girl. Time has passed so fast that I can’t catch up even if I want to.”
He was much smarter than Shen Qiongzhi and Qiao Weimin, who always wrote their purpose on their faces, without concealing it.
At first glance, he was an old fox in the circle of power and wealth. Everything was hidden in his heart, and it would not be easy for people to see his purpose.
