“So all I make is simple food?” Xu Baohan said, feigning displeasure.
“Yes, that’s right, but you can’t get enough of your simple meals, right?” An Lan changed the topic, and Xu Baohan smiled.
“Be good, come back soon, I’ll go buy you some food,” Xu Baohan said after hanging up the phone. He looked at the time and calculated that he had to get off work on time today.
At 5:30 pm, Xu Baohan finished writing the verdict and took his coat to get off work. Just as he got up, Su Run, who was sitting opposite him, also stood up slowly with a strange expression on his face. “Chief Judge, you got off work so early today, is Lawyer An coming back?”
“Yes,” Xu Baohan replied coldly, but there was still a hint of joy in his eyes. He seemed to be in a good mood. “I’ll go to the supermarket to buy some vegetables, I’ll leave the rest to you.”
“Oh, then you should hurry up,” Su Run’s lips moved as he said hesitantly.
Xu Baohan thought that he didn’t understand something, but he didn’t ask. As his assistant, he would have to take charge one day. There were some things that he had to rely on himself.
Xu Baohan hurried to the parking lot. It was drizzling today, so the female colleagues didn’t seem to have any umbrellas with them. They stood at the door and started talking.
“Hey, this person… is Chief Judge Xu’s girlfriend, right?”
“That’s right, it’s her.”
“I suddenly feel a little sorry for our Chief Judge. It’s rare for him to have a girlfriend. He won’t be cheated on, will he?”
“I don’t know. Speaking of which, Xuan Yuanlang is not only young, but also handsome and rich. It’s said that he’s the only young talent who can compete with Shengting. Look at where they’re going. You can tell at a glance that the place is not cheap.”
“That’s right. Although Chief Judge Xu’s background is quite good for us, compared to the people in the financial world… sigh, to be frank, even though Lawyer An is also in the legal industry as us, I heard that she earns quite a lot.”
“What are you guys talking about?” Xu Baohan’s voice suddenly appeared behind the female colleagues.
Everyone turned around and was shocked. One of the female colleagues’ phone slipped out of her hand in shock.
Xu Baohan caught it in mid-air and saw a piece of entertainment news that was still on. In the photo, An Lan and a pretty young man were eating and drinking red wine in a restaurant. In the other photo, they were in a colourful bar… She lowered her head, one of the man’s hands was on her shoulder, and she grabbed his arm with one hand. Her entire body seemed to be leaning on his shoulder, looking very intimate.
The headline of the news was: Lang Hua’s CEO meeting his mysterious girlfriend in Hong Kong at night
“Chief… Chief Judge Xu,” the female colleague looked at his sharp and cold face with trepidation. There was clearly no change in his expression, but why did she feel a chill in the air.
“My girlfriend is casually chatting with another man about work, and you guys are already talking about her like this,” Xu Baohan said as he stood up and returned her phone calmly. “As a lawyer, you don’t look at evidence and you believe in these ambiguous photos. Don’t you guys have the ability to distinguish right from wrong?”
“I… I’m sorry,” a younger female colleague apologized. Her face was red. “You’re right.”
“Be careful next time,” Xu Baohan said blandly. He opened his umbrella and strode into the rain.
After getting into the car, Xu Baohan closed the door and watched the rain leave on the windshield for a while. Then, he took out his phone and searched for the name of the CEO of Lang Hua on the Internet. Xuan Yuanlang, 32 years old. He graduated from a famous university in the United States that ranked 50th in the world. He was single and both Nian Junting and him had been ranked in the top 20 of China’s Forbes Rich List for three years in a row. They were known as the youngest and most handsome talents in the financial world.
