On their way, Huo Mian briefly summarized Zhixin and Huang Yue’s situation to Qin Chu.
Therefore, the latter had a general idea of what was going on.
Huo Mian, still suffering from a fever, walked up to Zhixin’s bedroom.
“Zhixin, open the door. It’s me.”
She knocked a couple of times, but Zhixin refused to come to the door…
“Zhixin… open the door and let’s talk outside.”
“Sis, I’m asleep, just leave me alone.”
Huo Mian looked helplessly at Qin Chu…
He walked up. “Let me try.”
“Zhixin, it’s me. Open the door, I need to talk to you about interning at GK.”
Sure enough, upon hearing Qin Chu’s voice, Jing Zhixin slowly opened his door.
“Oh good, you finally came out.”
Seeing that Zhixin was fine, Huo Mian let out a sigh of relief…
“Sis… she broke up with me.” Zhixin looked at Huo Mian, tears glistening in his doe eyes.
He seemed to be in a lot of pain; he wanted to cry but felt like it was embarrassing, so he tried hard to keep his tears from falling down…
Huo Mian couldn’t help but hug Zhixin tightly.
Zhixin hugged Huo Mian back…
Mr. Qin, who was standing by their side, felt bad as well…
Thank god this was Zhixin, or else he would have been really jealous…
If it were anyone else, Qin Chu would’ve thrown that man off to the side in a matter of seconds.
“Zhixin, your sister is still sick, and this is not a good place to talk. Let’s go downstairs.”
Qin Chu consoled him.
Jing Zhixin let go of Huo Mian and quietly followed after them…
Huo Mian didn’t want their mother to hear, so she said, “Mom, Zhixin is fine. He didn’t do so well on an exam, but he’s all better now. We’re both hungry, can you make us some pumpkin congee? Take your time.”
“Oh, it was because of a test… He scared me half to death, gosh. Okay, wait here, I’ll go make you guys some.”
Upon hearing what Huo Mian said, Yang Meirong was no longer suspicious.
She walked into the kitchen to make them food.
Qin Chu, Huo Mian, and Zhixin sat on the couch in the living room.
Zhixin took out his phone and handed it to Huo Mian…
“She sent me a WeChat message, see for yourself. I don’t want to read it out loud to you.”
Huo Mian took the phone in her hands and saw what Huang Yue wrote, “Zhixin, I’m sorry. I thought about it a lot, but I’ve decided to tell you that I’ve fallen in love with someone else. We met at a class reunion, and I can’t date you anymore. I didn’t want to hurt you, so I didn’t know what to tell you. However, it’s not good for either of us to drag this on. Zhixin, I want to break up. Thank you for taking care of me, and I hope that you’ll meet a better girl in the future.”
It was a very cliché and lame breakup text, exactly what an inexperienced kid would say.
“So? You can’t take it?” Huo Mian looked at her brother, a little angry at how weak he was.
“No, I can’t stand the fact that she fell for someone else. She’s not like that.”
“People are unpredictable… you will never know what is going on inside another person’s head. Plus… love can’t be forced.”
“I know.” Zhixin nodded.
“If you know, then why are you in such a slump?”
“I just got out of a relationship… No one is that brave, and my heart is in pain… really, Sis, it hurts here…” Zhixin said as he pointed at his heart…
Huo Mian frowned. “Don’t worry, the pain will pass. Zhixin, you’re a man, and you have to learn to be brave. Love isn’t the only factor in your life; you have your friends, your teachers, your classmates, and your career… Your brother-in-law already decided for you to intern at GK after Chinese New Year, since you don’t have a lot of courses during the spring semester anyways.”
“Really? I can go to GK after Chinese New Year?”
Zhixin was pleasantly surprised…
It was almost December, and Chinese New year was the end of February; March would come in the blink of an eye.
“Yeah, as long as you pull yourself together and do your job right, everything will go as planned.”
“I’ll listen to everything you say, Brother-in-Law… you’re my idol, you made it onto the Asia Forbes list at the age of 27… and you’re on the cover on so many financial magazines, you’re so cool!”
Zhixin became more and more excited as if his previous sorrows had all disappeared…
Huo Mian glanced gratefully at Qin Chu… they didn’t have to speak to know what the other person was thinking about…
“Brother-in-Law, if possible, can I intern at GK Film and Television?” Zhixin suddenly asked.
Both Huo Mian and Qin Chu froze for a brief second upon hearing his question.
