“Do you think it’ll be okay?” Zhu Lingling didn’t seem to think it was a good idea.
“No one else can do it except for Huo Mian. As far as I know, you and Huo Mian are Jiang Xiaowei’s only friends, and you guys are the only ones familiar with the ceremony. If Xiaowei’s maid of honor was a stranger, she might screw up,” Gao Ran calmly analyzed.
“But Su Yu’s the best man… Xiaowei asked me to be her maid of honor in the first place because she wanted to avoid arousing gossip,” Zhu Lingling reminded him.
“I know Huo Mian’s worried that Qin Chu might be angry, but it’s fine, we can talk to Qin Chu about it. Look at you, at this point, you definitely won’t be able to be the maid of honor, and we can’t hold up their wedding.”
Upon hearing what Gao Ran said, Zhu Lingling thought he had a point, so she had no choice but to nod in agreement.
It was already 9 AM when they found Huo Mian, and the wedding was at 9:30 AM.
They didn’t have a lot of time, but the good thing was, Huo Mian was easygoing and immediately agreed upon hearing what happened.
Worried that Qin Chu might think too much, Gao Ran called him.
The truth was, Qin Chu was a jealous man who cared about Huo Mian, but he picked his moments to be jealous and was never unreasonable. He knew that things like this were unpredictable and agreed without saying much else.
Zhu Lingling washed the dirty stain off her dress and gave it to Huo Mian, who immediately put it on.
The white gown looked pretty on Huo Mian, as it wrapped perfectly around her slim body, and the white emphasized her fair complexion.
Her hair fell elegantly down her back, all the way to her shoulders. Then, the makeup artist wrapped it up in a natural bun and applied light makeup on her face.
When Huo Mian walked into the VIP lounge in the dress, Jiang Xiaowei and the others all looked at her in surprise, since they were just about to talk about the ceremony procedures with the best man and maid of honor. Therefore, they didn’t expect Huo Mian to come in instead of Zhu Lingling.
“Mian, why are you here?”
Su Yu had never seen Huo Mian in a white wedding dress-like gown and felt like he was dreaming.
As Huo Mian walked up to them, he stared at her and felt his heart beating uncontrollably and his breathing becoming uneven.
“Something came up, and Lingling can’t be the maid of honor anymore, so here I am,” Huo Mian explained with a smile.
“Um… that’s really sudden, the wedding’s starting in half an hour,” Wei Liao said, a little worried, but Huo Mian looked at him and Jiang Xiaowei confidently. “Don’t worry, she told me what to do. I won’t mess up.”
“Okay, I trust you.”
Xiaowei was exhilarated that Huo Mian could be her maid of honor, but she suddenly thought of something and asked, “Where’s Qin Chu?”
“He didn’t come, the company’s really busy, so I’m representing my entire family…” Huo Mian chuckled.
“Oh, I see…” Jiang Xiaowei felt more at ease upon hearing this.
“Okay then, we’ll go in as soon as the ceremony starts. Thanks in advance!” Jiang Xiaowei said as she intimately linked arms with Huo Mian.
Wei Liao turned around to see Su Yu’s gaze still on Huo Mian, so he coughed lightly. “Young Master Su, are you awake yet?”
“Huh, what did you say?” Su Yu finally came back to his senses, and Wei Liao laughed, “I asked you if you were awake.”
“I wasn’t even asleep, stop making fun of me, okay?” Su Yu could tell that Wei Liao was toying with him, so he immediately refuted.
“Thanks in advance guys, the wedding’s starting in 15 minutes. Xiaowei, go reapply your makeup, and I’ll go talk to the MC.” Wei Liao said as he pulled Jiang Xiaowei out of the lounge, leaving only Huo Mian and Su Yu in the room…
Awkwardness immediately surrounded them…
“I’ve never seen you in a white gown like this…” Su Yu looked up at her and said in all seriousness.
“This was Lingling’s gown… it doesn’t really fit me,” Huo Mian looked down and replied.
“No, you look really pretty…” Su Yu said in a hurry but quickly realized that he misspoke, so he looked down, no longer looking into Huo Mian’s eyes. “You don’t look too bad in it, haha.”
“Su Yu…” Huo Mian faintly called his name; to Su Yu, that was the gentlest voice he had ever heard…
“Yeah?” He looked up.
“Thank you for the army surgeon. I know what you agreed to in order to help me, thank you…” Huo Mian bowed down to him in an extremely formal manner upon finishing her sentence, leaving Su Yu a little flustered…
