Huo Mian shook her head, “No, my mom is suffering from poor health, so she won’t be able to take the hit. I don’t think she knows, she’s been thinking that I’m her biological daughter this whole time. I’m afraid she won’t be able to handle the truth. I’m not planning to tell Zhixin either. I’m afraid it will ruin our relationship, and we would never be able to go back. Besides, I haven’t found my biological parents yet. I’d rather tell them when the time comes.”
“Sounds like a plan.”
“Honey, I still want to visit Dong Tao when I have time just to see if I can find any more clues, and take a look at the small town that I was born in. I still want to go check it out myself.”
“Sure, I will go with you in a couple of days. If you want, we can even stay there for a few days.”
Huo Mian nodded…
At around noon, Huo Mian stayed at GK and ate lunch with Qin Chu. In the afternoon, Qin Chu left the company for an off-site visit.
Huo Mian took a cab home. Since she didn’t have work, he was thinking about cleaning their condo. ( Updated by BOX NOVEL.COM)
But to her surprise, she received a call from Shen Jiani…
“Huo Mian, let’s meet. I need to talk to you about something,” Shen Jiani said sweetly.
Huo Mian thought about it for a moment and decided to meet her. After all, if she didn’t, then they might come looking for her at South Side.
It would be even more terrible if they were to disrupt her at work…
Huo Mian walked into a luxurious coffee shop located downtown. She saw Huo Yanyan and Shen Jiani the moment she walked in.
Shen Jiani was in a pale white Qipao, and with her well-kept skin, she looked rather young for her age.
Huo Yanyan, on the other hand, wore a flaming red puffy dress with her hair in big curls – looking glamorous and flirtatious.
“What did you want to talk to me about?” Huo Mian walked over and asked directly.
“Mian, come and sit. Waiter, get her a glass of orange juice, please.” Shen Jiani ordered for Huo Mian.
“No thank you, water is fine.”
“Okay, waiter, get her a glass of water.” Shen Jiani smiled as she observed Huo Mian.
“You’ve grown to be so beautiful…” For the first time, she complimented Huo Mian.
The weasel goes to pay his respect to the hen – not with the best intentions. Huo Mian thought to herself.
“I don’t like to go around in circles. Just tell me what you want.”
“Consider yourself lucky that my mother wants to speak to you, just shut up and listen.” Huo Yanyan glared at Huo Mian grumpily.
Huo Yanyan was never in agreement when her mother proposed that they should speak to Huo Mian. But given the tight circumstances, Shen Jiani had no other choice but to hope that she could find a breakthrough with her.
“Mian, I might’ve done wrong in the past, I hope you don’t mind. Yanyan is younger than you and is technically your little sister, so you don’t have to stoop down to her level. She’s got a very straightforward personality, so please excuse her.”
“Being direct and speaking ill are two different things. I don’t think I need to pardon her. After all… there’s not many fellowships to speak of.”
” I don’t need you to pardon me, who the hell do you think you are…?” Huo Yanyan said angrily.
Shen Jiani immediately pressed her down before she could go off…
“Yanyan, sit. What did I tell you when we got here? I told you to get along with your big sister, right?” Shen Jiani pretended to snap at Huo Yanyan.
Huo Yanyan angrily turned her head to the side…
Shen Jiani then smiled and said, “Mian, I came looking for you because I’m out of options. I really hope that you can help us. Huo Siqian’s been attacking us quite frequently recently, and he already forced Siyi to the Philippines. The environment there is tough, and a kid like him has never lived like that. He can’t possibly take it. Your father can’t do much to transfer him back since he’s limited by the board of directors and there are just too many interests involved. What’s worse is that Huo Siqian has been bringing his own people into the company.”
“So? What can I do?” Huo Mian took a sip of water and asked.
