“I do,” Bella said.
“I do too…” Yang said slowly as he wiped the tears off his face.
“If you trust me, then don’t think too much. Qin Chu will be fine, he’ll be back.”
“Mhm, we know President Qin didn’t commit the murder,” Bella nodded optimistically, and Huo Mian smiled. “Then hurry up and go to lunch.”
“What about you, Young Madam.”
“I’m not hungry…”
After Bella and Yang left, Huo Mian went back to work for a while. Then, she leaned back in her chair and rested her eyes; she had been so sleepy recently, was it because it was almost spring?
Soon, she fell asleep…
– The Su Family Mansion –
“Yu, you lost again…” Grandpa Su put down the chess piece in his hand and looked at his grandson, who was sitting across from him.
“Your chess skills improved, Grandpa.” Su Yu smiled.
“Stop with the bullshit, something’s on your mind, isn’t it? How can you beat me half-heartedly?”
“Haha… you saw right through me.” Embarrassed, Su Yu scratched his head; he really couldn’t hide anything from his grandpa…
“Tell me what’s on your mind, can I help?”
“Yes, you definitely can,” Su Yu immediately answered.
“Tell me about it.”
“Can you promise me you’ll help me first?”
“I never act without advisement, tell me about it first and I’ll make a decision.” Grandpa Su rolled up his sleeves and sipped on his cup of tea.
“Grandpa… have you heard about Major Homicide 327?”
“The case about Mayor Song’s daughter?” Grandpa Song asked nonchalantly, and Su Yu nodded nonstop. “Yeah, that case.”
Then, he moved up to his grandpa, who took another sip of tea. “Continue…”
“My friend’s husband is the suspect of that case, so I was wondering if you can help get my friend an opportunity to see him.”
“No,” Grandpa Su immediately refused.
“Why not?” Su Yu asked, unwilling to give up.
“Because I said so… Yu, no matter who this friend of yours is, you can’t interfere… Mayor Song’s daughter died a brutal death, and the provincial government is paying close attention to this incident… Don’t look for trouble during a sensitive time like this.”
“That’s enough.” Grandpa Su placed his teacup down and left the room, leaving Su Yu alone and filled with disappointment.
Last night when he was drinking with Huo Mian, he felt how much she loved Qin Chu and how much she missed him.
Qin Chu was in custody right now, and even someone with Su Yu’s connections couldn’t see him. In the end, he asked his grandpa to help Huo Mian see Qin Chu but to his utter surprise, his grandpa refused so quickly.
Grandpa Su had a point though; this wasn’t just a normal case, the victim was Mayor Song’s daughter; therefore, as a military commander, Su Yu’s grandfather would never get himself involved in this mess.
Su Yu sighed… he felt bad that he couldn’t help Huo Mian.
– At the same time, at the Huo Corporation –
Huo Siqian’s female assistant carefully knocked on his office door. “President Huo… someone’s here to see you, she said she’s your girlfriend.”
“My… girlfriend?” Huo Siqian froze for a second; it couldn’t be Mo Xue’er, since she came and left as she wished and never told his assistant that she was his girlfriend.
“Tell her to come in.”
Wang Shasha came in wearing a floor-length dress and delicate makeup. She said in an almost whining tone, “Siqian…”
“Why are you here?” Huo Siqian icily scanned her face; he seemed displeased to see her.
