Fall in Love with Mr.Nian Slowly - Chapter 1808
Chapter 1808: Only Silly Women Would Not Like It
An Lan was shocked.
After a while, she calmed down and said, “What? We’re not dating yet, and you’re already thinking of coming to my place? Don’t get your hopes up. No anyone can come to my home.”
“You misunderstood me. I didn’t mean anything by it.” Xu Baohan really didn’t have any other thoughts, but after thinking about it carefully, he knew it was not a good idea to go to her place at this stage. He had to take things step by step. “Alright, How About tomorrow?”
“…Tomorrow then.” An Lan knew he wouldn’t give up, so she agreed. “I don’t need you to pick me up. I’ll drive to the place you choose to eat. I need to drive to work the next day anyway.”
“You choose the place. I rarely eat in places other than small diners,” Xu Baohan added.
After the matter was settled, Xu Baohan put down his phone and walked out of the office.
Su Run noticed that his boss’ face had turned from gloomy to sunny. It was obvious he was happy about something.
He roared silently in his heart that men in love were as unpredictable as his girlfriend. He had to please his girlfriend at home and his boss at work. Life was so hard.
The hearing ended and it was almost time to get off work.
Xu Baohan went straight to his office and turned on his computer. “You can go home. I’ll finish the verdict before going home.”
Su Run sighed. Did he have to work so hard? “You can write it tomorrow. I can see that you’re very tired today.”
“There’s a trial tomorrow and I still have a new case to look at,” Xu Baohan said calmly. “The most important thing is that I have an appointment with Lawyer An for dinner tomorrow night.”
Su Run understood. “Chief Judge, do you need to order some flowers? I have a business card for that.”
Xu Baohan looked at him in bafflement and nodded. “Maybe she’ll like it. I’d better bring some flowers with me.”
Su Run thought to himself that all women liked flowers; only silly women didn’t like flowers.
“Oh right, I took a look of the case allocation form in the afternoon. Why do I have more cases than other judges?” Xu Baohan tapped on the table with his knuckles.
He studied his schedule and had difficulty in finding a time slot for dating.
“It’s because you’re the only judge in the entire court who isn’t married,” Su Run said sadly. “During meetings, everyone would ask if you could take more cases. Since no one waits for you at home after work, you said yes.”
“How come I don’t remember it?” Xu Baohan’s face was gloomy.
“It was three years ago…” Su Run stammered. Poor him. As Xu Baohan’s assistant, he had the heaviest work load among all the assistants. Could it be that his boss had finally understood the situation? Then his bad days were coming to an end.
Xu Baohan understood. “Tomorrow, you tell them that I have taken on too much for them in the past three years. Now, it’s time for them to repay me.”
“I will.” Su run nodded. He could imagine the sad mood of the judges.
The next afternoon, Judge Zhao bumped into Xu Baohan in the corridor. He had a bitter expression on his face, “Baohan, look at us. We’re over 50 years old. We’re not as energetic as before, and we have old parents to take care of. You young people should be at the forefront of the nation’s construction. The cases…”
“That’s right, I’m really envious of you. You’re over 50 years old, and you’re about to retire. When that time comes, you’ll definitely feel depressed with no case to work on, so you must take on a few more big cases before your retire.” Xu Baohan patted him on the shoulder. “Oh by the way, didn’t you say that you wanted me to work hard so that you can attend my my wedding? I’m working hard, but I need you guys to share my burden.”
