“Oh, and… I shouldn’t have stepped up as the maid of honor and helped Zhu Lingling, she’s such an ungrateful woman, haha.” Huo Mian tried to bring nonsense into the equation, in an attempt to change the subject.
“Chief Huo, you’ve grown wings, haven’t you? You don’t have to discuss anything with me, do you?” Mr. Qin asked overbearingly.
“No, no, that’s not it,” Huo Mian immediately denied.
“Then do you think you’re husband is too weak… and that’s why you’ve ignored him and publicly flirted with another man? Did you think I was dead?” Qin Chu asked grimly.
“I’m innocent… Mr. Qin, the MC went off script and asked us to perform, I wasn’t informed beforehand. Plus, I wasn’t flirting, you don’t have to believe me, but don’t humiliate my character, okay?” Huo Mian said as she angrily turned her head around.
“How about this… play a duet with me, and I’ll let it go,” Qin Chu said calmly.
“What? You can’t do it?” upon seeing Huo Mian’s awkward expression, Qin Chu asked on purpose, to which she immediately answered, “No, I can, what should we play? Take your pick.”
In the end, Huo Mian decided to admit defeat in front of Mr. Qin and sat down obediently in front of the piano…
After five seconds of silence, Qin Chu said, “Play the theme song for Bonnie Bear.”
“What?” Huo Mian thought she didn’t hear right, so she asked again.
“Bonnie Bear,” Mr. Qin repeated it, word for word, leaving Huo Mian speechless…
After a few seconds, she glared at Qin Chu angrily. “Qin Chu, are you kidding me?”
“I’m not, it’s what I want you to play. Are you going to do it, or not?” Mr. Qin asked stubbornly
“Fine, let’s play, but we don’t have the music score to that song, and I don’t know it,” Huo Mian said on purpose.
“Uncle Li, bring me Bonnie Bear’s music score…”
“Right away, sir.”
Huo Mian went crazy as soon as she heard this…
“Wait, Mr. Qin…why would we have music scores for kids’ songs at home, how long have you been plotting your revenge?” she asked in fury.
“I bought the music score to that song a long time ago for our baby, but it’s good that we got to use it beforehand.” Qin Chu was still as calm as ever, leaving Huo Mian with absolutely nothing to say… the two of them sat in front of the piano, and she said, “Are we really doing this?”
She felt awkward playing the theme song of Bonnie Bear with her husband… It was a little odd.
“You can choose not to, but…” Before Mr. Qin finished the rest of his sentence, Huo Mian quickly compromised, “I’ll do it, I’ll do it.”
She could guess with her eyes closed what the end of that sentence was; therefore, she bit down on her tongue and decided to play – Bonnie Bear? Let’s go.
Qin Chu almost burst out in laughter upon seeing his wife struggle like that; truth be told, it was hard to pretend to be mad at Huo Mian because as soon as he looked at her, his gaze would automatically soften.
“Let’s see who can play faster. If you’re faster than me, then I’ll let this go and never bring it up again…” Qin Chu said in all serious, and Huo Mian replied confidently, “Not a problem.”
She was extremely self-assumed of her fast reflexes.
However, she was obviously too happy too soon, because Qin Chu added, “But you have to give me a 5-second head start.”
“Why?” Huo Mian asked resentfully, and Qin Chu answered matter-of-factly, “Because you’re the one who did something wrong, and I’m the one doing the forgiving…”
After a few seconds of hesitation, Huo Mian clenched her teeth and said, “Deal…”
“If you lose, then you have to be on top for the entire next month,” Qin Chu added… almost sending Huo Mian into a breakdown…
Was Mr. Qin playing with her?
