“Are you going through honeymoon phase-withdrawal and getting sick of her?” Zhu Lingling laughed.
“Of course not, I’m not that kind of person. Sister Lingling, you should know me well enough. I think I may be overthinking things, haha, let’s eat.”
Zhixin put away his phone and continued eating with the others…
While they ate, Yang Meirong suddenly glanced at Zhu Lingling and Gao Ran and said, “You guys will make a cute couple, you should date.”
Gao Ran, “Auntie…”
Zhu Lingling, “Auntie, don’t joke, haha.”
Jing Zhixin, “Date, date, date…”
Huo Mian, “Date, date, date…”
Even Qin Chu, who was usually quiet, ended up saying, “You guys should date.”
Gao Ran laughed, “Are you guys adding insult to injury?”
Immediately furious, Zhu Lingling pushed Gao Ran, “Hey, what do you mean by that? ‘Adding insult to injury’? Don’t make it sound like you’re the one suffering losses. You want to date me? I don’t want to, humph.”
“Here we go again… is it fun to bicker every time?”
“Yes, it is.” Zhu Lingling looked at Gao Ran with tremendous vigor.
The sun had set once they finished eating…
Gao Ran drove Zhu Lingling home, and Zhixin was going to drive their mother back to the old house.
“Mom… once I finish with exams, let me help you move. You shouldn’t keep living in the old district.”
“Yeah, I’ve been wanting to move for a while, but I can’t bear to leave your Auntie Wu and the others. After all, we’ve been neighbors for so many years.”
“It’s okay, I heard that Auntie Wu’s son bought a new apartment in the city, you guys can still meet up all the time.”
Huo Mian consoled her mother…
“Yay, we can live in a big house now, I’m so excited! It’s all thanks to my brother-in-law.” Zhixin beamed.
“Gosh, stop being such a kiss ass, go home. Drive safe.”
“Got it Sis… you nag so much, just like Mom.” Jing Zhixin made a face at Huo Mian and then drove away from the hotel.
Huo Mian sighed slightly as she watched them leave…
“Look at Zhixin, he’s still a kid. I told him I didn’t want him to date at such an early age…he’s not mature enough yet.”
“It’s okay, Honey… you don’t have to bring up this topic again and again.”
“What do you mean by that, do you think I’m nagging too much as well?” Huo Mian pouted, as she looked at Qin Chu with blame in her eyes.
“Of course not… you’ve been busy all day, you must be tired. Let’s go home.”
Huo Mian nodded and got onto the Maybach with Qin Chu…
Then, the two of them drove towards South Hill Manor…
Three minutes from the castle, Qin Chu’s phone began to ring…
Too lazy to use headphones, he answered with his speakers…
Plus, Huo Mian wasn’t an outsider…
It was from an unfamiliar phone number…
As soon as he picked up, a sweet voice sounded over the phone.
“Is this Qin Chu?”
“I am,” Qin Chu answered calmly.
Qin Chu’s expression changed slightly when he heard this…
“Yishi?” He repeated with uncertainty.
“Yeah, I just got off the plane, so can you come and pick me up?” She had a really nice-sounding voice.
“I can’t right now, I’ll get someone from the company to pick you up.”
“Okay, see you soon.”
After hanging up, Qin Chu tilted his head to look at Huo Mian…
“Why are you looking at me like that?” Huo Mian laughed.
“Don’t you have something you want to ask me?”
“Nope…” Huo Mian purposely played with her phone, refusing to look at Qin Chu.
“Such a double-dealer.” Qin Chu smiled.
“Okay, okay, I’ll ask… ahem, who is Yishi? Your ex?” She finally looked up and asked.
Her sixth sense told her that this woman had a special relationship with Qin Chu…
Why else would this woman ask her husband to pick her up from the airport as soon as he picked up the phone? What was going on?
