Huo Mian immediately recognized Wu Xiaoxue’s voice.
“I’m really sorry, I should’ve called earlier. But when I got here, it took me a while to get adjusted… so there was a lot of fumbling about. I also had to apply for a bunch of random stuff.”
“What about now, are you all done?”
“Yeah, I am. How are you doing?”
“I’m good, you?”
“I’m good too. The air is really clean here, and my parents can help me take care of the baby. I plan on going back to work in a while.”
“That’s great. Director Wu told me that you were doing well, I’m really happy for you.”
“My uncle told me that you’re a doctor now, congratulations.”
“Have you seen… Ning Zhiyuan lately?” Wu Xiaoxue suddenly asked.
“Yeah, a while back he came to see me at South Side and asked me to lend him 100,000 yuan. I refused.”
“Don’t lend him money,” Wu Xiaoxue warned her.
“Why not? Do you know what he’s been up to recently?” Huo Mian had a feeling that Wu Xiaoxue knew more.
“He’s still dating He Man. They’ve been addicted to gambling recently and lost a bunch of money… Ning Zhiyuan’s apartment wasn’t rented out; it was mortgaged… He’s useless now and will lose everything no matter how much you lend him.”
“How did this happen?” Huo Mian was a little taken aback.
“It’s all because of He Man… I knew nothing good would come from them fooling around… Before I left the country, I hired a private investigator. Apparently, He Man is a gambler too and has a lot of debt. I think they owe money from loan sharks too, and they’ve been hiding out in a steel house in the slums. He’s really despicable; when we were getting divorced, he even threatened me and refused to sign the papers unless I gave him alimony.”
“So, did you?” Huo Mian was a little worried.
“Of course not… I’m not that easy to bully, there was no way I was going to give him whatever he wanted. Our family provided the money for the condo, the car, and even the wedding reception. Why would I give him anything?”
“I can’t believe how things ended up.”
“Never mind, he brought everything onto himself… I don’t plan to tell Xinyue what kind of person her father is, we don’t plan on going back to China either.”
Huo Mian felt bad upon hearing what Wu Xiaoxue said…
“A while back, Uncle and Auntie Ning came to see their granddaughter with a bunch of free-range eggs, but didn’t know that you went abroad… His parents were forced to pay for Ning Zhiyuan’s sins, I feel really bad for them.”
“This is all fate… They can’t blame anyone for this… Anyways, my baby’s crying, I’ll call you another time.”
After Huo Mian hung up the phone, she closed her eyes and sank deep into thought…
The truth was, she felt bad in the beginning because she always thought that if she hadn’t broken up with Ning Zhiyuan back then, maybe his life wouldn’t be as miserable.
However, if she did marry him, he may still choose to go down the wrong path.
Maybe what happened to Wu Xiaoxue was what was supposed to happen to her.
Therefore, it was wrong to say that she ruined Ning Zhiyuna’s life; all she could say was, Ning Zhiyuan ruined his originally perfect set of cards.
If he learned how to be a man after marrying Wu Xiaoxue, today, they would both be doctors, have a happy family, and a healthy baby. Wouldn’t that be good?
Or, if she went with Qin Chu to the United States all those years ago, maybe Ning Zhiyuan wouldn’t have appeared in anyone’s lives.
Therefore, everything that’s happened was in the stars; humans could not control them.
“What are you thinking about? You seem to be in a daze,” Qin Chu walked into the bathroom.
“I was thinking about things that happened in the past,” Huo Mian said, a little depressed.
I thought you were wondering why my stamina’s so great, and if I took pills,” Qin Chu teased her on purpose.
Huo Mian immediately covered her face with her palms…
“I’m still sore all over,” Huo Mian complained shyly.
“I have a way to help you with that,” Qin Chu said mysteriously.
“What way?” Upon seeing him smile like that, Huo Mian knew that Mr. Qin was up to no good.
