“No, it has a lot to do with you. Come home tonight, I’ll put on a fantastic show for you.”
“Tonight?” Huo Mian was somewhat surprised.
Wasn’t it a little too fast?
“You’re taking action tonight?” Huo Mian asked to make sure.
“Yeah, I need to attack them when they’re unprepared…” Huo Siqian smiled.
Shen Jiani barely filled up the 400-million-yuan hole that her son dug, but Huo Siqian was already planning to attack her and push her off the cliff.
“So, you’re going to make sure they never recover again?”
Huo Mian knew Huo Siqian; he had done plenty of foreplay, so his attack would be deadly.
As expected, he flicked her head, gently and adoringly. “You’re the smartest, that’s why you have to bear witness to what happens tonight… or else all my preparations would be in vain. Tonight, at 6:30 PM, my mom will be hosting a dinner party and the entire family will be there. You have to come.” Then, Huo Siqian put his hands in his pockets and left…
Huo Mian looked at him with a complicated expression on her face; he was always laughing and joking around, allowing others to misconstrue him as easygoing.
However, that wasn’t who he was; Huo Mian had a feeling that Huo Siqian was too smart and was never sincere to anyone.
He placed traps everywhere he went…
Too bad she didn’t know that someone was deeply planted in his heart… If she did, she would probably…
Huo Zhenghai called her as she was walking out of the Huo Corporation.
Huo Mian turned around to see him alone, without Shen Jiani by his side.
“Can I help you?”
“You have the day off, right? Come have some tea with me, we haven’t talked in a while.”
“I don’t have anything to talk to you about,” Huo Mian replied impolitely.
Her words didn’t anger Huo Zhenghai; instead, he smiled, “Don’t be so distant. We’re not as rich as the Qin Family, but if they’re in trouble, we’ll definitely help. After all, we’re in-laws.”
Huo Mian was annoyed by the fact that Huo Zhenghai kept bringing up their marriage to his own advantage …
Huo Mian was just about to refuse when Huo Zhenghai added, “How’s your mother doing? I went to see her at the old house, but no one was there. Did she move away?”
“Yeah, that place is being demolished, so I bought her a new house.”
“Oh really? Where?”
“You don’t have to know, my mom… doesn’t want to see you,” Huo Mian said quite frankly.
Huo Zhenghai smiled awkwardly. “I know she still hates me, and I already told her that I’ll slowly make things up for you guys. Oh, right, I heard that your brother went to study in New Zealand?”
“Does he need help with anything? I have a lot of friends down there.”
“No, thank you for the gesture.”
“Are you sure you don’t want to grab a cup of tea with me?” Huo Zhenghai asked again.
“Mr. Huo, I don’t like it when others beat around the bush. You don’t have to invite me out for tea or dinner, just tell me what you want. Emphasize on the key points please, we’re both busy people.”
“You child… okay, if that’s the case, then I’m going to be straightforward. Yanyan is going on a setup date tomorrow with someone who has a hefty background. They’re meeting at the Hilton Hotel, can you and Qin Chu come?”
Huo Mian immediately understood what he wanted; she knew Huo Zhenghai wouldn’t ask her to drink tea with him just for fun.
Huo Yanyan was being set up on a date, and he wanted them to go to help the Huo Family ‘gain face’. After all, GK’s president was a big deal in this city.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Huo, neither of us are free tomorrow.”
“Can you guys come just for a little while during lunch? Even if you guys just drop in to say hi,” Huo Zhenghai tried to negotiate with Huo Mian.
“I’m not that close with Huo Yanyan. You should convince Huo Siqian to go instead.” Unwilling to waste another second with him, Huo Mian got on her car and sped off.
Since she had the day off, Huo Mian immediately drove to meet up with Zhu Lingling; the two of them sat in the coffee shop Huo Mian recently opened and chatted casually…
“Girl, has there been any news in your tummy?” Zhu Lingling quietly asked.
