Huo Mian shook her head…
“I thought he finished dealing with the incident in T City? I sent him a WeChat the day before yesterday and he said he finished compensating the victims’ family.” Gao Ran was confused.
“He’s still working on something, but I think he’ll be back soon.”
“Mhm, let’s get together again when he gets back.”
They were enjoying lunch when halfway through, Huo Mian received a phone call from Bella. Then, she got up apologetically. “You guys eat, I need to head back to the company.”
“Already?” Zhu Lingling didn’t want her to go.
“I’ll free up when Qin Chu gets back. Then, we’ll have all the fun you want.”
“Fine, just go. Remember to pay the bill!”
Upon hearing this, Huo Mian burst out laughing. Then, she paid for lunch and went back to GK.
After she left, Zhu Lingling seemed a little depressed.
“Why aren’t you eating?” Gao Ran noticed a change in Zhu Lingling’s expression.
“I think Mian… is exhausted. She doesn’t like managing companies, but she resigned from South Side to work here… Seriously, I feel heartbroken seeing her like that. I’ve known her for so long so I know what she likes and doesn’t like… She’s doing all this…”
“For Qin Chu,” Gao Ran finished her sentence, and Zhu Lingling nodded. Then, she added angrily, “So, if I hear others b*tch about how Mian doesn’t love Qin Chu, I’m going to f*cking kill them…”
“Don’t listen to netizens, they’re just passersby… we’re their friends, so we know what’s really going on… Qin Chu treats Huo Mian as the most important person in his life, and Huo Mian treats Qin Chu the same way, No one loves the other more.”
“Mhm, that’s right.” Zhu Lingling nodded in agreement.
“So are you, Lingling…”
“What do you mean?” Zhu Lingling was confused.
“You’re the most important person in my life. I may not be as rich as Qin Chu, but I don’t love you less than he loves Huo Mian…”
Gao Ran wasn’t a sweet talker. Plus, he worked at the municipal bureau and therefore his temper wasn’t great. He liked challenging and teasing others, and Zhu Lingling had gotten used to that.
However, she was still happy to occasionally hear him be romantic. Upon hearing what he said, she replied shyly, “Although I’m not as smart or as wise as Mian, I’m not a coward. If you need me, I can give up the job I like for you as well… even if I have to risk myself to be a spy.”
“Spy? Forget it, you’re going to be exposed as soon as you enter enemy territory…”
Then, this couple began bickering… and making up… that was how their relationship was like.
It was already 2:30 PM by the time Huo Mian finished up at the company.
With nothing else urgent to do, she drove to the First Hospital. Her father-in-law’s conditions were quite dire, and it had been more than a week since he was hospitalized.
Upon arrival, Huo Mian talked to Qin Yumin’s attending physician before entering his room. “Dad…”
“Mian, you’re here.” Qin Yumin placed down the book in his hands.
“She went home to do laundry, why are you here? Are there a lot of things going on at the company?”
“Not at the moment, how are you feeling today, Dad?” Huo Mian handed Qin Yumin a glass of water before sitting down.
“Pretty good, when can I be discharged?”
“Um… what’s the rush? You should stay here a little longer, just to monitor your conditions,” Huo Mian chuckled.
Qin Yumin adjusted his reading glasses before asking in a serious tone, “Mian, tell me the truth. Did I get diagnosed with… something else?”
