“When I went out just now, I saw those unreasonable family members outside the door. If they see you, they might do something impulsive. I think it’s safer for you to leave from the back door.”
Huo Mian nodded. “Okay, I’ll leave from the back door then. Thank you, Chief Han.”
“Don’t mention it, and don’t revel in it too much, the director will definitely do something about it. They won’t get anything from causing a scene out there.”
Huo Mian packed up her things and left the hospital from the back door with Huang Yue.
Chief Han was right; it was much quieter to leave from the back door.
Huo Mian, her mind a mess, decided to walk home. It took her about 15 minutes to get back to Imperial Park.
It was still early, so their condo was empty. Qin Chu wasn’t back yet.
Huo Mian put down her bag. Exhausted, she fell onto the couch and closed her eyes to rest for a bit.
Suddenly, she remembered something. She took out her phone and called Zhu Lingling, but her phone was off.
Nervous, she logged onto WeChat. As soon as she did, she saw Zhu Lingling’s message.
“Girl, I’m at work. I’m flying south today, don’t worry about me.”
Huo Mian was relieved that Zhu Lingling went to work…
She thought about what happened at the hospital today and began developing a headache.
Her mind ran wild, and she completely forgot about making dinner.
It wasn’t until she heard the sound of the door unlocking and Qin Chu entering did she snap back to reality.
“You’re back? I’ll go make dinner,” Huo Mian said as she headed towards the kitchen.
When she passed by Qin Chu, he grabbed her hand.
“You don’t look well.”
“Oh, it was really busy today, I think I’m just too tired,” Huo Mian replied vaguely.
“Then don’t make dinner, let’s go out to eat.”
“I don’t have much of an appetite, but you can go out for some food yourself.”
“It’s fine, I’m not hungry either. Forget dinner, let’s rest for a while.” Before Huo Mian could respond, Qin Chu dragged her to the couch and had her sit.
Then, Qin Chu took out an apple from the fridge for Huo Mian. He turned on the TV and randomly picked a channel.
Afterwards, he took off his suit jacket and took out his laptop. He then began working beside her.
Huo Mian didn’t want to eat. She held the apple Qin Chu gave her, and, overcome with boredom, began watching TV.
They didn’t speak to each other, as Qin Chu was focused on his company’s reports and stocks.
Huo Mian, on the other hand, stared at the TV screen as the apple sat quietly in her hands.
They quietly felt the time pass by.
Huo Mian occasionally looked at Qin Chu’s perfect profile; her heart was filled with warmth.
She liked and enjoyed his companionship…
However, she constantly felt like their relationship was in crisis mode. She didn’t believe that they would be able to spend the rest of their lives together.
It seemed that the tragedy that happened seven years ago made sure that their relationship would be forever burdened with heavy baggage.
Qin Chu, sensing Huo Mian’s stare, suddenly turned his face towards her. Looking into her eyes, he asked, “Are you enjoying your show?”
“Take a look at it for yourself.”
Qin Chu looked up and froze…
It was the cartoon, Bonnie Bear.
“You can switch channels if you want to,” he said.
“No, it’s fine, I like this show.”
Qin Chu was speechless upon hearing Huo Mian’s response.
He truly found it hard to believe that someone with an IQ as high as 130 would watch a children’s cartoon show.
After Qin Chu worked for another hour, he turned off his laptop.
He looked at Huo Mian, who appeared exhausted. Giving some thought, he asked her, “Do you want to go on a vacation together?”
“A vacation?” Huo Mian was dazed.
