“We’re old friends, I met him back in the U.S.” Rick didn’t try to hide things.
“Oh…no wonder,” Wei Liao said in realization.
Like Qin Chu, Rick was a low-profile mogul. He was buried in riches but never showed off.
This was because most of Rick’s family members were involved in unspeakable businesses…
After some small talk, Rick turned around and went back into the private room Qin Chu was in…
After they sang a little karaoke, the group left Seductive Fox.
Qin Chu took Huo Mian home…
“Honey, they might be your friends, but we can’t just let Andrew and Christina come for nothing. We need to give them compensation,” Huo Mian reminded.
“Don’t worry, I’ve made arrangements already. They’re not going to take money, so I prepared some Chinese porcelain pieces for them. By the way, Christina kept saying how much she likes you.” Qin Chu smiled proudly.
“Christina’s really nice as well. She’s passionate and free-spirited. Where you grow up really matters, Americans are so outgoing and have great personalities.” Huo Mian smiled.
Qin Chu drove all the way back to their manor on South Hill…
Although it was already midnight, all the lights at the South Hill Manor were still on…
Security guards stood outside, taking shifts to guard the premises 24 hours a day.
When Uncle Li saw them come in, he immediately walked up to them. “Sir, Madam, would you like some midnight snacks?”
Qin Chu turned his head to look at Huo Mian. “Honey, are you hungry?”
Huo Mian shook her head…
“Then let me get the madam some sweet soup they just made in the kitchen.” Then, Uncle Li turned around.
Huo Mian happily hugged Qin Chu’s arm. “I feel much safer when you’re at home.”
“I’ll bring you with me next time.” Qin Chu lovingly raised his finger to graze the tip of her nose.
“I want to too, but South Side’s been really busy recently. Ever since Hospital Deputy Director Guo was fired, our branch has been left without a leader. Director Wu sometimes comes over to meet with us, but there are so many miscellaneous things to do. Anyways, I get a headache just thinking about it.”
“Don’t overwork yourself… work is limitless, but health is.”
“I know, I know.”
After the two of them had some sweet soup in the living room, they went upstairs…
Just as Huo Mian came out of the shower, she saw Qin Chu putting on his jacket…
“Are you going out?”
“Yeah… there’s an emergency I need to deal with, you should go to sleep first, Honey.”
“Fine.” Huo Mian was slightly disappointed; Qin Chu had just come back, and now he was leaving again.
“Good girl…” Qin Chu gently kissed her forehead and turned around to go downstairs.
After Qin Chu left, an exhausted Huo Mian fell onto her bed and thought back at everything that happened today. It felt like a dream to her.
She was actually able to resolve GK’s PR nightmare…
She even got Ni Yang and Mo Xue’er to sign with GK… Now that she thought about it, she was one lucky duck…
Just then, Wu Xiaoxue, who hadn’t spoken to Huo Mian in a while, sent her a smiley face with teeth via WeChat.
Huo Mian immediately replied with a smiley face with teeth as well.
“I went into preterm labor and gave birth to my baby daughter last night. She’s tiny and weighs less than 5 pounds, but she’s really healthy.”
“What? How did you give birth after only 7 months…” Huo Mian was surprised.
“That b*tch He Man came looking for me at home. She’s pregnant too… but she still came to provoke me. We got into a fight, and I went into preterm labor. She’s no better though and had a miscarriage…”
Huo Mian’s heart sank…
Then, she nervously asked, “What about Ning Zhiyuan, what did he say?”
“He came last night and took off after one glance at our child. I think he went looking for his other woman. Aside from He Man, he’s also been hooking up with a young model born in her early 20s.”
“Xiaoxue, I’m so sorry…” At that moment, Huo Mian seriously sympathized with Wu Xiaoxue.
Wu Xiaoxue then sent her a 2-second voice message of her laughing bitterly and sighing…
