“I don’t know. Who knows what will come of the future… but honestly, I never imagined that I would be by Qin Chu’s side again one day, and enjoy such a simple life with him. I don’t know what will happen in the future, and what we might be faced with. We can only take it one step at a time.”
“Okay, then you won’t be going around thinking about all the other pointless things.”
“How are you recently? Have you gotten over your breakup?”
“I’ve already entered into another relationship, yay!” Zhu Lingling proudly announced.
“Okay, you win.”
“Have you not heard of that saying? ‘The best way to get over a relationship is to get into a new one’.”
“So who is this new man of yours?” Huo Mian thought that because of Lingling’s job as a flight attendant, many people would immediately think of uniform seduction or something, so they would be biased about her work.
Plus, Zhu Lingling had attractive features, so a lot of the passengers tended to ask her for her contact information.
“He’s an heir of a rich family and not just any heir. I hear that he hangs around Su Yu and his friends a lot, and he even promised me that he’ll take me to see the infamous Su Yu. I’m quite excited…”
“Uhm… it’ll be better for you if you don’t see the infamous Su Yu, you’ll be disappointed.”
“Huh? You’ve met him?”
“He’s here at the recovery center and bosses everyone around as if the whole hospital needs to worship him just to get by.”
“Really? Haha, tell me more, what’s this Su Yu person like? Is he as good looking as he is in the photos? Is his voice sexy? Is he generous when it comes to money? Does he have tons of girlfriends? That popular star, Zhao Qingya, did she sleep with him?” Zhu Lingling asked a ton of questions from the other end of the line.
Finally, Huo Mian only replied, “Su Yu is super annoying and arrogant, with a terrible temper. He’s not one of the so-called Four Princes, he’s a T-rex that spits out fire.”
“Hahaha, this is the first time I’ve heard of someone judge Su Yu like that! You’re so weird.”
“I’m telling the truth, believe it or not.”
“I know, I know, you only got eyes for your McDreamy Qin Chu right now. Other men don’t satisfy you anymore.”
After a few more back and forths with Zhu Lingling, it was time to get back to work. She signed off of WeChat and began to work.
After she got off her shift, she casually flipped through the calendar and noticed that Ning Zhiyuan’s wedding was in a few days.
At dinner that night, Huo Mian asked indecisively, “Honey, should we still go to Ning Zhiyuan and Wu Xiaoxue’s wedding?”
“Of course, and remember to give them a hundred thousand yuan or something as a wedding gift,” Qin Chu said casually.
“What? That much? Are you crazy? I’m not even that close with him, why would I give him so much?”
“It’s to tell him that your husband is rich.”
“So, are you showing off?”
“I’m trying to make him forget about you.”
“No, a hundred thousand is too much, why would you give him all that money?” Huo Mian felt upset.
“A hundred thousand is too much? Clearly, our standards and values are different. Don’t fuzz over it anymore, just listen to me. I’ll get the accountant to transfer you the money tomorrow, and you’ll just head in, give the gift, and leave before they serve the food. Just give them the money and come back.”
Huo Mian nodded, “I know, but there’s no need for you to transfer the money to me, I’ve still got plenty on my card.”
Qin Chu raised his hand and spoilingly touched Huo Mian’s head. He just left a few words, “Listen to me, good girl.”
The next morning, not long after Qin Chu went to work, Huo Mian received a two hundred thousand yuan transfer.
How generous are you, Mr. Qin, to spend two hundred thousand so carelessly on Huo Mian’s ex-boyfriend? Was he one of those people with a lot of money and a small brain?
Three days passed by quickly, and Huo Mian hesitated for quite a while before she finally decided to wear a black Chanel dress, graceful and elegant.
She arrived on the third floor of Shengjing Hotel alone…
She saw Ning Zhiyuan in a groomsman suit from far away, greeting the guests with a fake smile on his face.
Hints of pleasant surprise flashed through his eyes when he saw Huo Mian.
“Mian…” He called out her name the same way he used to.
