Chapter 235: Reversal

He turned his head to look at Huo Mian, lightly exhaling, “One day, I’ll die by your hands.”
“Where did you get that idea from, President Qin?” Huo Mian looked as if she were wronged.
Qin Chu was helpless, reaching out to pinch Huo Mian’s apple-red cheeks.
Her intellect was incomparable, and it only depended on if she wanted to use it. As for Qin Chu, she knew his weakness too well.
No matter what, even if she was wrong, she could still be so confident.
Most importantly, one single sentence could soften his heart…
The word ‘honey’ was able to melt Qin Chu’s heart right away…
He definitely did not have any room left in his brain to think about what Ning Zhiyuan’s phone call just now had been about.
And he truly trusted Huo Mian, since she had dated Ning Zhiyuan for such a long time and still didn’t take the last step with him. On the other hand, she still moved in with him and even slept on the same bed with him. This meant that in Huo Mian’s heart, he was still different.
“So you’re not angry anymore?”
“No.” Qin Chu shook his head.
“To be honest, Ning Zhiyuan didn’t really have much to say. I think he saw the news, found out my relationship to the Huo family, and regretted that he didn’t take any of the advantages.” Huo Mian tilted her head as she deduced.
“In the future, you don’t even need to mention irrelevant people like him.”
Looks like Qin Chu was still slightly jealous…
Huo Mian immediately hugged Qin Chu’s neck, smiling in a cajoling manner. “As you wish, Master Qin.”
Things changed that night. Huo Mian had guessed correctly. Once a nosy person dug deeper into the situation, the fact that Shen Jiani was a third wheel to Huo Zhenghai and Jiang Hong’s marriage and how she proudly moved into the Huo family with her children was also exposed. This caused quite a large disturbance, but Shen Jiani was more cunning. Before the public rage could push to a climax, she took Huo Yanyan onto talk shows to cry about how she had been wronged, how she and Huo Zhenghai were in love, and how she had moved into the Huo Family with the matriarch’s silent permission, unlike how the rumors painted her as a scheming b*tch.
Seeing how the public opinion was reversed, Shen Jiani couldn’t hold it in any longer and jumped out at the first opportunity to cleanse her own name.
This did fit their style…
That night, Huo Mian called her mother, and they had a long discussion.
The next day, when reporters went to interview Yang Meirong, although she really wanted to insult the scheming b*tch Shen Jiani, she followed Mian’s advice.
Mian had reminded her multiple times to not do that, as sometimes silence was the best response, or things would only get worse.

Su Yu was pretty free lately. Without his luxurious nightlife, he was able to spend his nights following the latest gossip.
He had been consistently following Huo Mian’s situation, and today’s reversal seemed to be within his predictions.
But Huo Mian’s lack of response and action only increased his curiosity.
“The power that stands behind her didn’t seem to do anything this time around,” Su Yu exclaimed.
After the situation with that pregnant patient last time, Su Yu felt that there was a mysterious force behind Huo Mian.
At that, he lifted his phone, found Huo Siqian on his Wechat list, and sent him a message.
“That sister of yours is very interesting, there’s finally a presentable woman in the Huo family.”
“Are you talking about Huo Yanyan?” Huo Siqian responded instantly.
“Huo Mian,” Su Yue replied with two words.
Huo Siqian didn’t reply, but a voice call came right over.
“How’s your health? You seem to be free, seeing as you have the time browse WeChat,” Huo Siqian joked.
He was in the same circle as Su Yu, and they would get together with everyone all the time. They weren’t necessarily close, but they weren’t strangers either.
“It’s great, I really like it here.” Su Yu’s mouth tugged into a smile.
“You know… Huo Mian?” Huo Siqian asked.
“Yeah, she’s my personal nurse,” Su Yu said on purpose.
Huo Siqian smiled, “Really? What a coincidence.”
“That sister of yours is really great, so if I said that I wanted to date her, would you support me?”
On the other end of the line, Huo Siqian’s expression changed slightly, and the light in his eyes became sharp.
