Huo Mian put an empty bottle on the counter with a ‘bang’ and smiled as she looked at Huo Siqian. “Of course I wouldn’t.”
“Why not?” Curious, he tilted his head to look at Huo Mian.
He looked at her with such loving tenderness…
“Because you were born with a mask on your face. People like you will only ever love themselves; you will never love others. Haha… if I’m not wrong, you’ve never loved Mo Xue’er, but she likes you very much, right? That’s why she keeps probing you, trying to find out who you like. She also suspected me, right?”
“You’re very smart,” Huo Siqian said faintly.
“But she probably doesn’t know that you’re a man who pretends with everyone… all you care about is conquering the Huo Corporation… Don’t worry, I don’t want the inheritance, and you don’t have to wrack your brain to deal with me. Moreover, you don’t have to mislead me by telling me that you like me… because I’m no threat to you… We never wanted the same things to begin with.”
“Oh? You know what I want?” Huo Siqian raised an eyebrow.
“You want the world to be under your feet, you want power and money… your number 1 goal is to topple that old man.”
“Haha…” Huo Siqian laughed but didn’t say anything.
“I, on the other hand, want to live a peaceful life… we don’t have the same goals, but we suspect each other because we’re both smart people…”
“So that’s how you think of me.”
“Am I wrong?” Huo Mian looked at him.
“Nope… you’re absolutely right.” Huo Siqian licked his lips and finished the rest of his cocktail.
Huo Mian had 13 bottles of Budweiser by the time they left the bar.
However, she didn’t feel drunk at all…
“You have a good tolerance.”
“Thanks for the drinks, bye.”
After saying goodbye to Huo Siqian, Huo Mian immediately hailed a cab.
“Imperial Park,” she said the first place that popped into her head.
Then, she realized that she gave the driver the address of her place, not her mother’s.
The taxi headed towards Imperial Park…
Huo Mian thought, since she was already there, she might as well go upstairs. Qin Chu was probably asleep at this hour anyway.
If worse comes to worst, she’ll sleep in the guestroom…
However, to her surprise, as soon as she arrived downstairs, she saw Song Yishi head in, with a bento box in her hand.
Huo Mian stopped in her tracks…
She looked at her phone; it was 12:30 AM.
Why was Song Yishi here with a midnight snack?
Did Qin Chu ask her to come, or…
She didn’t even dare to think about it…
However, she was not in the mood to go upstairs anymore…
She stood quietly downstairs like an idiot…
Qin Chu was curious upon hearing the doorbell.
After seeing Song Yishi in the peephole, he opened the door.
“I saw your car downstairs, so I came up. Did you just get back?”
Song Yishi said on purpose so Qin Chu wouldn’t feel awkward about having his lie exposed. It’s been more than 2 hours since she called him.
“Oh.” Qin Chu’s reaction was bland, and he didn’t seem to want to invite Song Yishi in.
“I couldn’t sleep and was a little hungry, so I went out to get something to eat. I bought an extra serving for you.”
“I’m not hungry,” Qin Chu said faintly.
“Have some, it’s spicy and sour noodles. I remember that we both used to love eating this dish, and whenever your maid made some we always fought over them, and it was so spicy that I cried…”
Song Yishi extended her hand, so Qin Chu had no choice but to take it.
“Is Huo Mian home? I brought her some barbeque corn… I heard it’s her favorite.”
Song Yishi asked pretentiously…
Before Qin Chu had the chance to say anything, a voice behind her said, “Thanks, I really do love corn.”
Then, Huo Mian walked out from behind Song Yishi and impolitely took the corn from her hands, walking inside as she munched on it.
Song Yishi and Qin Chu were both dumbfounded…
They both thought they were hallucinating…
Huo Mian shouldn’t be at home, because Song Yishi didn’t see her car on the way up.
“You drank?” Qin Chu frowned upon smelling the alcohol on her.
