Chapter 1251: A Confession that wasn’t Really a Confession (2)

“To eat breakfast.”
Before Huo Mian could say anything, Huo Siqian took out the bento boxes, placing them on her desk.
There were crab-roe buns, xiaolongbao, and all sorts of side dishes… Each one was delicately made and looked delicious.
Although Huo Mian already had breakfast at home, she almost drooled looking at all the food in front of her.
“But… why would you have breakfast here, in my office?”
“I came here to reconcile the Huo Corporation account, and I haven’t had breakfast yet… My stomach hurts.”
“My question is… why do you have to eat in my office?” Huo Mian was speechless.
“You’re the only one I know. Do you expect me to eat in one of your clinics?” Huo Siqian said matter-of-factly.
Huo Mian didn’t know what to say. After pondering for a moment, she said, “Okay then, eat quietly. I’m going to work for a while.”
She turned around to put on her white lab coat. Then, she tied her hair up in a simple ponytail and put on her black-rimmed glasses.
All of a sudden, she looked like a completely different person…
Huo Siqian was drinking porridge; he brought a small spoon up to his mouth and burst out in laughter before taking a bite.
“What the hell are you laughing about?”
Huo Mian looked at Huo Siqian like he was a crazy person…
Huo Siqian looked up at Huo Mian’s delicate face and slowly said, “I’m laughing at you. You’re a clean-looking, young girl with a fair complexion, but why are you always dressed like a middle-aged woman? Do you do that on purpose so patients will trust your diagnosis?”
“Of course. If you had prostate problems and went to see the doctor, how would you feel if you were seen by a teenage boy as a physician?”
“Mian, my little sister, can you not jinx me? My wedding night was just yesterday.” Instead of getting mad, Huo Siqian laughed.
He was always so patient towards Huo Mian and treated her with all the good temper in the world…
“It was just an example, you don’t have to tag yourself,” Huo Mian said. Then, she looked down and began organizing the documents she was going to use in the conference later.
“Mian, I bought two orders of breakfast. Do you want some?”
“But the crab-roe porridge is really good.”
“Can you not be so annoying…” Huo Mian suddenly looked up and growled at him before shamelessly asking, “Is the porridge from Li Ji?”
“Yup…” Huo Siqian nodded before sensibly pushing the other bowl of porridge up to Huo Mian…
Unable to withstand the lure of aromatic hot porridge on a cold winter’s morning, Huo Mian dug in brazenly…
The truth was, Huo Mian didn’t hate Huo Siqian as much as she used to. She was smart enough to notice that he never did anything that put her in danger.
On the other hand, Huo Siqian did many things that benefited her…
For example, he established the Huo Foundation at South Side, which helped countless people.
For example, he worked with her to defeat the old man in her quest to seek revenge.
For example, he randomly married Song Yishi, satisfying her to no end.
All in all, Huo Mian felt like Huo Siqian never treated her like an enemy.
So, why would she treat him like one?
Qin Chu was right, Huo Mian had to defend herself against Huo Siqian, but she didn’t have to treat him with bitterness and hostility.
With that thought, Huo Mian slowly let go of the biases she used to have against Huo Siqian…
The winter sun slowly rose into the sky; Huo Siqian looked at Huo Mian’s profile, immersed in the morning sunshine as she sipped on porridge.
To him, this moment was one of the most beautiful sceneries he had ever seen…
“Why are you looking at me like that?” Huo Mian suddenly looked up to see Huo Siqian looking at her ever-so-gently, so she asked uncomfortably.
