“Why do you want to buy him a car all of a sudden?”
“Doesn’t he like cars?”
“So what? He’s still a kid in school, he can’t go around posing like that,” Huo Mian refused.
“We could buy him a humble domestic label.”
Huo Mian didn’t know that Qin Chu overheard her conversation yesterday with Zhu Lingling.
Qin Chu knew that Huo Mian loved her younger brother very much, so he wanted to do something for him.
However, Qin Chu didn’t say anything else upon seeing how insistent Huo Mian was.
After a shower, the two gradually made their way to bed.
Ever since the day Qin Chu failed and ended up angry, he had been sleeping on Huo Mian’s bed.
It had been several days now.
They would even occasionally fondle around, and some might even call the whole rejection thing a blessing in disguise.
“Qin Chu, could you stop your hands from feeling around?” Huo Mian said impatiently.
Qin Chu’s hands were originally placed on her waist, but it would occasionally move up.
It frightened her so much that she couldn’t even move.
“If I can’t taste them, can’t I at least touch them?” Qin Chu immediately felt wronged.
Huo Mian instantly turned around with blushed cheeks, and no longer discussed that dirty topic with him.
Then, Qin Chu would happily hug her from behind and fall asleep, just like that.
The truth was, Qin Chu hadn’t slept so well in the seven years he lived in the States, and it might have been because he had been missing Huo Mian for all that time.
Over the last seven years, he had been a light sleeper and would be awoken by even the slightest noise.
After he returned, things stayed the same. He would often wake up in the middle of the night and would only be able to return to sleep after a few cigarettes.
However, after he began to share a bed with Huo Mian, he was able to sleep like a baby.
It was probably because he felt comforted and calmed by Huo Mian’s pleasant body scent.
He wouldn’t want to wake up, even if the world was about to collapse.
Both of them went to work in the morning, and Huo Mian drove very carefully, in fear that she would scratch the car.
After she arrived at the hospital, she hurriedly changed into her uniform and prepared to draw blood for the patient in room 1.
“Be careful, Huo Mian,” the head nurse warned.
Huo Mian nodded and entered the room with the blood-drawing kit.
Su Yu was in the middle of a video conference. He leaned his head against the side of the bed and spoke seriously into the other end.
Huo Mian walked over without a care and held up Su Yu’s arm.
Suddenly, Su Yu took back his arm, “Who told you to touch me?”
“I told you yesterday that I’ll be over for blood samples today.”
“Get out, I don’t want to,” said Su Yu coldly.
“Okay, you don’t have to, you’ll only be here for another month at worst.”
“Wait, come back,” Su Yu yelled as he put down the laptop, noticing that Huo Mian was about to leave.
Huo Mian stopped in her tracks and turned around…
“What did you mean?”
“It’s very clear that you won’t cooperate with our course of treatment, so your recovery will definitely be slower than others. There’s nothing wrong with that, I’m not the one living here and paying the bills, you’ve got the money to stay here for as long as you want to.”
Su Yu’s temper immediately rose up when he heard what she said, but after a few thoughts, he coldly ordered, “Come back and draw my blood.”
Huo Mian’s lips curled and slowly walked over.
“You better be careful, if you do it wrong, you’ll end up like that nurse.”
“I’m okay with ending up like her, I hear she got 1.4 million yuan in compensation. If you give me a million or so in compensation, I promise that I’ll prick you even harder than she did.”
“You…!” Su Yu was so angry that for the first time ever, he didn’t know what to say.
“Huh? Why are you mad? Did I say anything wrong? She put you in pain, but you still gave her 1.4 million. Aren’t you just paying to be in pain?”
“Damn it, you’ll regret offending me,” warned Su Yu.
“Has anyone ever told you it’s best not to offend hospital staff, especially during your stay? You’ll be doomed if any medical accidents were to happen to you.”
“How dare you? If so, you’ll die a nasty death.”
“What’s wrong with that? I’ll be dragging you down with me anyway, and you’re worth much more than I am. You’ve got all that money, but I’m just a nurse,” after Huo Mian spoke, she pulled out the needle and then pouted her lips towards the spot to signal at Su Yu. “Press it down yourself, or you’ll bruise.”
Su Yu then oddly followed her orders and pressed down where she told him to.
“Do you believe that I can immediately chase you out of this hospital? You might even be chased out of C City,” Su Yu asked Huo Mian as she was walking away.
Huo Mian turned around, smiled brightly, and asked, “Do your parents know how immature you are?”
