Huo Mian smiled brightly and thought, You’re not the only ones who know how to pretend to be innocent, I can do it too.
“What nonsense are you saying, and you call yourself a doctor? You don’t peel or wash apples before eating them? Hmph, I don’t want it anymore. Let’s go, Shi.”
Mrs. Song was furious, she pulled her daughter away and did not take the apple in Huo Mian’s hand.
After they left, Huo Mian smiled and sat on the bed…
“Honey, wake up. They’re gone, stop pretending.”
“Honey… why did you invite Song Yishi to our party? You could’ve just said no.”
Qin Chu detested the hypocritical Song Yishi… he felt sick when he looked at her.
“Doesn’t she want to play? Let her come, I promise that she will have the most memorable Christmas of her lifetime.” Huo Mian smiled…
At the party, aside from herself, Jiang Xiaowei and Zhu Lingling won’t let Song Yishi off easily either, right?
“Wife… you’ve become bad…” Qin Chu gently reached out and pinched her chin.
“I’m just learning from you, okay?” Huo Mian responded with a smile.
No one was worse than Qin Chu… In comparison to him, she was just an amateur…
Three days later, Qin Chu was discharged from the hospital. Huo Mian drove Qin Chu back to South Hill Manor in the early morning.
Uncle Li had asked the maids to make dozens of exquisite dishes.
Huo Mian and Qin Chu initially thought that they could finally have a quiet meal and spend a good night at home, but at noon, Assistant Yang came to South Hill Manor.
“Sir…” Assistant Yang was close to tears when he saw Qin Chu.
“Why are you here?” Qin Chu was quite surprised to see him.
“Please come back to work soon. No one is used to the way the chairman does things since he’s too old-fashioned. These days, the employees are unsettled and many executives have threatened to leave the company… Everyone is saying that GK is done.”
Assistant Yang was also under a lot of pressure…
“It’s only been a few days, I thought my father was doing a good job?”
“The old chairman has a different management style from you; many projects have been forced to stop… Furthermore, he is older, so clearly, he can’t keep up with a lot of things and gets distracted during meetings… Everyone is saying that… you and Young Madam left GK because you guys didn’t get along with the chairman. They’re also saying that GK has no future; three executives gave their resignation letter this afternoon. I can’t take it anymore…”
“Things are that serious?” Huo Mian was also stunned.
Qin Chu immediately put down his chopsticks…
“I’ll head over right now.”
“Honey, I’ll go with you….” Huo Mian also stopped eating and got up with Qin Chu.
The long-time-unseen Maybach appeared at GK headquarters.
Everyone immediately stopped causing trouble…
“President Qin, Mrs. Qin.”
“Hi President, Mrs. Qin.”
The employees greeted excitedly along the way.
They also started discussing among themselves in private…
“It seems like the previous news were no more than rumors. The news that there is a conflict between the president and chairman and that the president left to go abroad with his wife is all fake.”
“Yeah, some people even said that Young Madam was kidnapped, and no one knows if she was alive or dead, but she seems fine.”
“It’s probably fake news released by our competitors. How ridiculous!”
Everyone was uplifted to see Qin Chu return to GK…
“Tell the others that we’ll be having an all-member staff meeting in ten minutes,” Qin Chu said.
“Yes, Sir.” Assistant Yang quickly ran to inform the various departments.
Ten minutes later, thousands of employees gathered in GK’s largest auditorium.
Qin Chu wore a black casual suit and held Huo Mian’s hand as they walked onto the stage and sat down. The latter wore a snug white sweater dress.
Although Qin Chu looked tired, his and Huo Mian’s appearance at the headquarters had shattered all rumors.
“Please be quiet, the president would like to say a few words,” Assistant Yang shouted into the microphone, and the entire auditorium fell dead silent…
Qin Chu held the microphone and looked around.
Huo Mian caringly opened a bottle of water for him and placed it by his side.
Everyone held their breaths; now that he was back, what was the president going to say?
