Without waiting for Huo Mian to speak, Su Yu walked over, pulled open her car door, and looked at Huo Mian with a complicated expression on his face, “Get out of your car.”
“I have something to talk to you about,” Su Yu said stubbornly.
As expected of Young Master Su, he was the one who came here looking for Huo Mian, but he still expelled a sense of superiority.
“Hurry up, I still need to get to work.”
Huo Mian didn’t delay any further and stepped out of the driver seat.
She wore a coffee-colored trench coat, navy-blue pencil pants, and a pair of black heels, giving off the mature and intelligent vibe.
She was very comfortable to look at…
“How can you still be in the mood to go to work? Are you that carefree?” Su Yu was speechless.
“How am I carefree?” Huo Mian smiled, finding his words interesting.
“Aren’t you standing trial at the Provincial Higher People’s Procuratorate next week?”
Huo Mian’s eyes flashed, “How did you know? You are very well-informed.”
“Everyone in our circle already knows, a shady guy like Zhou Guangming only knows how to bully a woman,” Su Yu said with disdain. He could easily screw over a dumb-rich guy like Zhou Guangming.
“Oh, is that so?” Huo Mian did not react much.
“What do you mean, is that so? What are your plans?” Su Yu asked restlessly.
It was an urgent situation, how could she be so calm?
The involved party was not anxious, but the bystander was…
“What are my plans? Since he is suing me, I’ll go to court. It’s a crime to refuse to stand trial, right? If anything, I’ll hire a lawyer to defend me,” Huo Mian said nonchalantly.
“It’s not as simple as you think. The Zhou Family spent 3 million yuan to hire the number one lawyer in town, Mr. Zhang. He has a spiteful mouth, and as long as someone pays him, he will say whatever they want him to say. He has the ability to turn black into white and vice versa. If you are found guilty, you will have to go to jail.”
“I am innocent, why would I go to jail?” Huo Mian chuckled.
“The world is not as simple as you think, our society is complicated. People can distort the truth with money, do you understand?” Su Yu said painstakingly.
“I know, I always knew that this world is not simple.”
“What are you going to do then?”
“I’ll face whatever comes my way.”
Su Yu, “…”
Su Yu was speechless to see how relaxed Huo Mian was, it was quite different from what he was expecting.
Don’t girls usually panic when they’re faced with something like this?
Shouldn’t she ask him for help? How could Huo Mian be so calm? As expected, she was not a normal girl.
“If you need my help, then…”
Before Su Yu could finish speaking, Huo Mian immediately interrupted him, “That’s not necessary, thank you.”
“Are you sure?” Su Yu raised a brow.
“Very sure.” Huo Mian’s answer was clear-cut.
“Why?” Su Yu was puzzled.
“Ha, why do you need a reason? I’m contentious, I don’t like owing others favors.”
“You can be assured that I won’t ask for anything in return. I won’t use this to threaten you or anything, I’m not that kind of person.”
“Then why would you refuse my help? As long as you ask me to, I will let the Zhou Family…”
“Thank you, but there’s really no need for you to do that. It’s almost time, I need to get to work.”
After speaking, Huo Mian walked back to her car and drove away…
Su Yu was unsuccessful this morning, so he was quite upset. However, he was even more curious about Huo Mian now.
He wanted to see how she was going to get out of this crisis. Was her mysterious boyfriend going to help her?
What kind of person was he? Someone so powerful that even Huo Siqian had to be cautious of him…
Just as Su Yu was deep in his thoughts, his phone rang…
“President Su, something happened at the company, can you come back?” Lisa sounded very anxious.
