Chapter 252: Genie
Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
“Just wondering if I could help you make it happen.”
“Are you a genie? Do I need to rub a lamp or something too? Why do you think you are capable of granting wishes for others?”
“Don’t underestimate me, my last name is ‘Su’,” Su Yu said arrogantly.
He wasn’t tooting his own horn. With his last name, he could do literally anything in C City.
“Would it kill you if you don’t boast for one day?”
“You’re the first one to say something like that. Come on, let’s have it, what’s your wish?”
“Can you print my photo on paper bills?”
“Can you hang a photo of me with Chairman Mao on Tiananmen Square?”
Su Yu was speechless. “…”
“Can you ask that soccer player, Aubameyang, to smile at me with all 8 teeth visible?”
“Come on, you can’t even grant me three wishes, little boy. Before you toot your own horn, make sure you see what you’re worth first.” Huo Mian patted Su Yu on the shoulder and walked out of the room.
Su Yu seriously thought that Huo Mian was abnormal. Seriously abnormal.
He wanted to express his gratitude by buying her a present, but he couldn’t even have a decent conversation with her.
When Huo Mian got off work, she changed into her own clothes. Getting into her Volkswagen CC, she backed out of her parking space and drove off.
Her driving skills were pretty good. Upstairs, Su Yu sucked on a cigarette as he watched her white car speed away. He suddenly had an idea…
Her car seemed to have inspired him… because of how sh*t it was.
Once Huo Mian got home, she was too lazy to move, so she crashed onto the couch.
Just then, Huang Yue called to tell her that Wu Xiaoxue had woken up, and her brain was functioning properly. Last night’s surgery was a success, and the ultrasound today showed that her baby was okay as well.
Huo Mian smiled when she heard the news. At least their hard work had paid off.
When Qin Chu came in, he saw Huo Mian curled up in a ball on the couch.
He directly walked up to her, picked up a blanket, and covered her up.
Then, he sat down beside her, browsing the stock market… (TL: Stock market doesn’t close for rich people, they after-hours and pre-market trading)
It was already 8:30 PM when she woke up…
“Um… it’s late, have you eaten?”
“Are you talking about midnight snack or breakfast?”
Huo Mian scratched her head as she got up to head to the kitchen…
However, Qin Chu grabbed her arm and pulled her into his embrace…
“You seem to be tired recently.”
“Yeah, night shifts are tiring.”
“That’s why you should quit and do what you want to do. Being a nurse is too much work.”
“But I don’t want to start my own business. I’ll worry too much. This place is fine, and, plus, the hospital pays for my health insurance and retirement. I’ll work there until I turn 55, then I’ll be able to retire and live on the retirement money. It’s a good plan.”
“It doesn’t take much to satisfy you, does it?” Qin Chu laughed as he pinched Huo Mian’s small nose.
“You must be hungry, I’ll cook.”
“No, it’s fine. It’s late, so I already ordered delivery, and it’ll be here soon.”
As he finished his sentence, the doorbell rang. Huo Mian ran over to the door…
She took the delivery Qin Chu ordered and immediately placed it on the dining table.
“Are we celebrating something? You ordered so much food.” Huo Mian stared at the 8 dishes on the table, and then back at Qin Chu.
“It’s for you and all the hard work you’ve been doing.”
“Thanks, Mr. Qin.” Touched, Huo Mian wrapped her arms around Qin Chu’s neck and pecked him on the cheek.
Qin Chu didn’t care at all that her kiss got saliva onto his handsome face…
“This okra dish is delicious, have some more. Medically speaking, this vegetable is high in nutrients, protects your liver, and lowers your cholesterol.” Huo Mian kept putting food in Qin Chu’s plate. She seemed to really enjoy the dishes.
Qin Chu held a bowl of food in his hands and suddenly asked, “Mian, how much longer do I have to wait?”
Huo Mian’s hand quivered; she knew what Qin Chu was asking about.
