“You say it as if you know what is best for me,” Huo Mian coldly replied.
Huo Siqian fell silent…
“I’m being serious, Mian.”
“So am I. You’ve told me before to not get too close to Qin Chu. In your eyes, none of the other men in this entire world are better than you.”
“But they will really harm you.”
“Then who wouldn’t harm me? You?” asked Huo Mian impolitely.
“If you want to come back, I can protect you.”
“Whoa, stop right there. Do you think I don’t know what you’re planning? You must have seen my announcement today. From now on, I don’t want any interaction with the Huo Family. You better take care of yourself.”
Huo Mian hung up the phone immediately after she finished…
As she went downstairs, Qin Chu’s car just happened to arrive at the front door. Huo Mian walked out, opened the door, and got onto the passenger seat.
“What’s wrong?” Qin Chu asked when he saw that she was unhappy.
“Nothing, I got a harrassment phone call.”
Qin Chu nodded and didn’t ask any further. He turned around and drove out of the area. “What do you want to eat?”
“My treat today, pick your favorite, of course,” smiled Huo Mian.
“Of course!” Huo Mian wasn’t picky; she would eat anything and everything if she went out with others.
So, when Qin Chu picked Japanese, she immediately nodded.
Fifteen minutes later, the car parked outside a Japanese restaurant that looked high-end from its decor.
The two entered into a graceful little private room, where the tatami decorations were placed with care.
A popular Japanese song played in the background. Even though they couldn’t understand the lyrics, the melody was still very nice.
During the meal, Huo Mian and Qin Chu casually chatted…
“You call me ‘honey’ when you need me, and ‘Qin Chu’ when you don’t. Huo Mian, can you be less obvious when burning bridges?”
Huo Mian felt terrible when Qin Chu said this, and then she lightly coughed, “Uhm… Honey, I’ve been causing trouble for you since we got married. Will you ignore me if you ever get annoyed at me one day.”
“Do you think I would do that?”
Huo Mian shook her head. “I know you won’t, but I hate myself sometimes, always causing trouble.”
“What’s wrong with that? I don’t mind cleaning up after you.” Qin Chu held up the sake glass and took a small sip.
With the concentrated alcohol aroma on the corners of her mouth, Huo Mian would occasionally think, did she save the entire galaxy in her previous life? Why did she meet such a warm, kind, rich, tall, and handsome man like Qin Chu?
After the statement was published, Qin Chu utilized some connections and ways to publish several news pieces in the afternoon and evening. All of those basically fought for Huo Mian’s innocence, and no matter how Shen Jiani pretended and faked her grief, she could never change the fact that she was a homewrecker. Huo Yanyan’s reputation completely went down the drain as well, and she was so pissed that she didn’t go out for several days, in fear that others would talk behind her back.
Huo Zhenghai was also discharged from the hospital since Huo Mian had already stated that there was no point for him to continue to pretend to be sick.
“Do you know when I wanted to return to the Huo family the most?” asked Huo Mian carelessly, as she was on her phone, and accidentally saw the news of Huo Zhenghai’s discharge from the hospital.
“You have times when you want to go back to the Huo family?” Qin Chu was somewhat curious.
Huo Mian nodded.
Then she continued to say, “It was seven years ago when we were in love. Back then your mom didn’t like my family background. But the truth was, I despised myself as well. I would always dream of Huo Zhenghai suddenly wanting me back, and then I would become a socialite like Huo Yanyan. Maybe then, your mom would have agreed to us being together.”
Huo Mian held the teacup with both of her hands as she spoke; she looked like a little girl…
She was cute, but the look also made him feel sorry…
“Are you surprised that I was once vain?” Huo Mian teasingly stuck out her tongue.
Qin Chu looked at her as his heart throbbed. “Mian…stop.”
