“What do you mean? Zhixin doesn’t even know that we’re married, he thinks that I was renting alone and is quite worried about me.”
“So I think that you should tell him when you get a chance, or else he will suddenly come up with other ideas later on.”
Huo Mian laughed because she knew what Qin Chu was talking about…
“But I still think the car…”
“You siblings could figure out the car yourselves. If you think that it’s too luxurious, you’re welcome to switch cars with him.”
Huo Mian immediately stopped talking. She already thought that a Volkswagen was luxurious enough for her, so how could she switch to a yellow sports car?
The nurses at South Side would talk about her until their spit drowned her. By then, they would definitely think that she found herself a sugar daddy if she were to switch to a new car.
So she might as well not discuss Zhixin’s new car with Qin Chu anymore.
However, if Qin Chu wasn’t worried that Huo Mian would be unhappy, he would have happily given Jing Zhixin a Porsche.
Otherwise, if someone were to find out that his brother-in-law drove a car that was only a few hundred thousand yuan, wouldn’t he feel embarrassed?
Yes, he would have to slowly convince Huo Mian into getting him another car.
Next time, he would do more research. First, he needed to find his wife another car, or else he would feel very uncomfortable every time he saw Huo Mian’s Volkswagen.
After dinner, Huo Mian took a shower and got into bed…
She had been staying up too late recently and never slept well. As a result, the dark circles around her eyes were becoming increasingly obvious.
She walked over to the washroom cabinet and put on the eye cream Qin Chu previously prepared for her.
Finally, she lied down in bed…
Qin Chu worked quite late in his study, and, after he arrived at Huo Mian’s bedroom, he was surprised to see Huo Mian was still awake.
She was watching a variety show on her phone.
“You didn’t sleep yet?”
“No, I slept too much during the day.”
“Your circadian rhythm is completely messed up.” Qin Chu felt sympathetic, and then he got onto the bed and naturally placed his arm around Huo Mian’s shoulders.
“You finished working? You must be exhausted.”
“I’ve gotten used to it, it’s just work.”
“You haven’t been back recently, so won’t your parents be upset?” Huo Mian asked carefully.
“If I go, then you’ll be home alone, and I’ll be worried. It’s fine if I just visit for dinner occasionally,” Qin Chu said as he gently brushed Huo Mian’s hair.
“If time turned back to seven years ago, would you still choose to meet me?” Huo Mian suddenly asked in sorrow.
Qin Chu thought for a moment, and replied with conviction, “If time turns back to seven years ago, then I would apply for a visa a week earlier than I did, and the two of us would go to the States together. That way, we wouldn’t miss out on seven years.”
For Qin Chu, being away from Huo Mian for those seven years was the biggest regret in his life.
Huo Mian dug her head into Qin Chu’s chest, not knowing what to say…
She felt sad but also moved…
“What about you? If time turned back, would you still want to date me?” Qin Chu suddenly asked without much confidence.
He was somewhat worried about Huo Mian’s reply…
If they were to go back, and if she hadn’t dated him, then Huo Mian’s stepfather wouldn’t have died.
Maybe Huo Mian would still be living in a happy family of four.
Huo Mian tightened her grip around Qin Chu’s waist, and after a moment, she said, “I’ve never regretted anything I’ve done in the past, even if I knew it was doomed to begin with. If time turned back, I would still go along with what I believed in back then. I believe that it’s not a coincidence that you showed up in front of me amongst the sea of people. It was fate, our fate.”
Qin Chu didn’t say anything after he heard what she said; instead, he embraced Huo Mian tightly…
It was an early fall night, and they held each other ever so tightly as if they were afraid of losing each other.
Some things might be fine if you never had it, but what is terrifying is losing what you once had.
Huo Mian suddenly realized that if she was forced to leave Qin Chu one day, she might die of heartbreak…
She wanted a man like him so badly, and to be able to be by his side her entire life….
Huo Mian went to work the next day, and several nurses surrounded her with odd smiles.
“What’s with you guys? Is there something wrong?” Huo Mian was confused.
“Congratulations on the promotion, Huo Mian. Dinner is on you!” One of the nurses smiled.
“Promotion?” Huo Mian was puzzled.
