“Fine.” Huo Mian nodded, and then she followed Huo Yanyan into a small lounge beside the conference room.
Huo Yanyan looked tired and no longer had that arrogant expression on her face.
“Huo Mian… I have a favor to ask of you.”
“What is it?” Huo Mian nodded; she knew that Huo Yanyan was no longer a threat to her.
“Can you introduce me to Shen Mingxi?”
“Shen Mingxi? Who’s that?” It wasn’t that Huo Mian wasn’t up to date with her news, Shen Mingxi was simple too low-profile of a person.
“He’s one of the four princes and is the young heir of Northern Auto… He came back to the country recently. Oh, right, he went to Young Master Su’s birthday party…”
“But I don’t know him.”
“I know you don’t. Shen Mingxi is a low-profile man and rarely interacts with people in our circle, so I can’t get in touch with him… but I heard that he’s close friends with Young Master Su… I think… since you guys are so close, if he helps me, then I would be able to get to know him. As for the rest, I’ll have to rely on myself for that. All you have to do is introduce me to him.”
Huo Mian was just about to speak when Huo Yanyan added, “I won’t ask you to help me for free. I can transfer a part of my stock rights to you. After all, you’re the second-biggest stockholder after Dad and have the ability to fight against Huo Siqian.”
“Haha… the problem is, I have no interest in your stock rights, nor fighting against Huo Siqian.”
“Don’t lie to me… my mom said that you’ll never be on Huo Siqian’s side.”
“Your mother sure knows me well.” Huo Mian was surprised at how thoroughly Shen Jiani saw things.
“She didn’t tell me why, but I believe her. What do you think? Do you want to cut this deal? My stock rights for your introduction,” Huo Yanyan begged.
She didn’t care about what the news said, but she knew that Huo Mian and Su Yu had a special relationship.
As long as Huo Mian asked, Su Yu would help her for sure…
It only mattered if she was willing to ask or not…
“I’m sorry, but I can’t help you.” Huo Mian smiled as she refused her.
First, she wasn’t interested in Huo Yanyan’s remaining stock rights…
Soon, Huo Siqian would take those stocks and put them in his own pocket.
Second, she decided that she will no longer get involved with Su Yu because of mundane things.
She finally made up with Mr. Qin, and she didn’t want to do anything that frustrated him.
Therefore, she decided to refuse Huo Yanyan’s request. The latter felt down in the dumps as she watched Huo Mian walk away.
She never thought that one day, the ground beneath her would crumble.
She also never thought that she would one day be envious of Huo Mian…
She used to mock Huo Mian, calling her poor, saying that she was a bastard child, and judging her for not having a father.
However, she had a father as well as money, but she lived like a dog, if not worse than one.
Huo Mian, on the other hand, not only married Qin Chu but was also loved by a man like Su Yu.
Any other woman would be jealous to death, right?
After Huo Mian finished her conversation with Huo Yanyan, she was about to head downstairs when Huo Siqian’s assistant stopped her.
“Miss Huo, the president is waiting for you.”
“I’m not sure either, you’ll find out when you go in.” The female assistant smiled.
Every time Huo Mian went to the Huo Corporation, Huo Siqian would always ask her to go to his office.
She was too lazy to knock, so she pushed open his office door and walked straight in.
Huo Siqian was sighing documents for the finance department…
“That’s it for now, you can leave.”
“Okay, President Huo.”
“Come sit.” Huo Siqian waved his hand and smiled at Huo Mian.
“Just tell me what you want, I’m headed to GK right now.”
Huo Siqian looked at Huo Mian and then said profoundly, “I think wearing a low-cut sweater today was a big mistake.”
“Ha… since when did you develop the habit of commenting on my outfit?” Huo Mian was amused.
“Don’t tell me you don’t know what’s on your neck.”
Huo Mian froze for a second upon hearing what Huo Siqian said.
She was in such a hurry to make breakfast this morning that she didn’t look at herself too closely in the mirror.
Therefore, she immediately ran up to a mirror and took a look.
Then, her face immediately turned bright red…
There was a hickey on her neck…
Damn it, how humiliating… Mr. Qin is such a jerk, why didn’t he tell her this morning?
She even pranced around the maids and Uncle Li… she flaunted their love without knowing it.
“So, how domineering is… that brother-in-law of mine? Did he tag you because he’s afraid that someone will try to steal you away?” Huo Siqian placed a finger on his temple and looked at her with a spurious smile on his face.
