“Originally, because you’re injured, I won’t make you do anything… but Honey, remember that you took the initiative this time.”
Then, before Huo Mian could say anything else, his overwhelming kisses landed on her lips…
Qin Chu was sometimes gentle and sometimes rough…
At this moment, Huo Mian put all thoughts behind her… and thoroughly enjoyed the love between her and Qin Chu.
– The next morning –
Huo Mian crawled lazily out of bed… and Qin Chu had already left.
She received a WeChat message from him, “Honey, I left for GK. Today’s Saturday, so get some rest.”
Qin Chu had been extremely busy with GK’s thirty-year anniversary.
Huo Mian’s hands were injured, and she wasn’t much help at the hospital. Plus, it was the weekend, so she had time to rest.
However, she had a lot to do today, because it was an important day.
Jiang Xiaowei’s engagement party was today…
At this thought, Huo Mian immediately got up, not wanting to waste another second…
After she washed up, she picked out a pair of light blue overalls from her closet…
Paired with white sneakers and a white long-sleeved shirt, the outfit made her look young.
However, she knew that although it was a simple outfit, it must’ve cost a lot for Qin Chu to have put it in her closet.
Huo Mian wasn’t a big fan of luxury goods, so she was okay with wearing anything.
It was Jiang Xiaowei’s engagement party, so it was probably going to be a large-scale event. However, she couldn’t steal the spotlight.
The more low-key, the better…
After she got dressed, Huo Mian tied her hair up in a bun and went downstairs with a white Dior handbag.
“Young Madam, it’s time for breakfast.”
“No thanks, I’m going to a friend’s engagement party.” Huo Mian was in a good mood.
“But Young Master said… that you have to at least have a little bit, or else your stomach will hurt.”
Uncle Li didn’t know what to do…
It seemed like Qin Chu told Uncle Li to remind her; Huo Mian thought about it, and then took a piece of toast from the dining table and gobbled it down in three bites.
Then, she drank half a glass of milk…
“That’s good enough, right? Thanks, Uncle Li.” Huo Mian waved goodbye as she left South Hill Manor.
– Ritz Carlton Hotel –
Although Jiang Xiaowei and Du Jianan weren’t crazy rich, they were still influential people.
Du Jianan was in the environmental protection sector, so he had a lot of friends in the political circle. Plus, he was Gao Ran’s cousin, so a lot of officials from the City Bureau came as well.
Jiang Xiaowei’s parents were both well-respected professors in C City.
Since there were so many people, it took Huo Mian a while to find a parking spot outside the hotel.
Then, she got off the car and walked in…
Jiang Xiaowei was wearing a white strapless wedding dress. Her hair was up in a bun, and her makeup was delicately applied.
She was pretty, but sadly, she wasn’t smiling…
However, she did flash a smile at Huo Mian when she saw her, exposing her canine teeth.
She walked up to Huo Mian and grabbed her by the arm.
“Why did you come so late?”
“I bet you did all sorts of stuff last night…”
“You’re so dirty…” Huo Mian was at a loss for words; how could an unmarried young woman be so astonishing in her choice of words.
“I can tell that President Qin’s stamina is pretty good… you guys should have a baby soon, so I can be its godmother.”
“Um… can’t you be a little more creative?” Huo Mian looked at her disdainfully.
“Then we should be in-laws…”
“Fine, you win.”
Jiang Xiaowei brightened up at the sight of Huo Mian…
She dragged Huo Mian to her parents and formally introduced her to them.
She seemed to value her friendship with Huo Mian…
Some have said that Jiang Xiaowei was only friends with Huo Mian because she was the Young Madam of GK.
However, only Huo Mian knew the truth.
Jiang Xiaowei was an arrogant, flashy, and high and mighty woman… Her personality was much stronger than Huo Mian’s.
She wasn’t lacking any rich friends, and she chose to be friends with Huo Mian mainly because she liked her.
Especially when she was treating Ni Yang, Huo Mian’s odd approach really impressed her.
As they were busy chatting, Huo Mian suddenly saw a familiar figure outside the door…
“Xiaowei… look who’s here,” Huo Mian said in a low voice.
Jiang Xiaowei looked over, and she immediately saw Wei Liao. He was dressed very formally, wearing a white suit.
Behind him was Su Yu, in a dark blue jacket.
