She gave her a giant hug…
“Mom, goodnight. Rest well.”
“Okay, stop being clingy. Kiddo, drive carefully,” Yang Meirong didn’t know that Huo Mian called a cab, so she reminded her.
“Mhm.” Huo Mian turned to leave, crying as she walked…
Sadly, her mom only saw her silhouette in the night light…
Walking out of the community, Huo Mian wasn’t in a hurry to call a cab. She sat down by the fountain near the gates of Sky Blessing Court.
Then, she took out her phone and called a number…
“Hello?” A sluggish voice sounded n the other side of the phone.
“Your sleeping position is wrong, get up and go to sleep again,” jokingly, Huo Mian said.
“Sis, what’s wrong with you? Why did you have to call at this hour?” Jing Zhixin was fast asleep in his bachelor flat.
New Zealand was four hours ahead of China.
It was eight thirty at night here, so it was already twelve thirty at night where Zhixin was…
“I just suddenly missed you. What, you’re sick of me after a few days abroad?”
“No… I just thought that it’s weird that you didn’t call me during the day and instead called me in the middle of the night.”
While speaking, Zhixin crawled out of his bed and sat on the side of his bed with the comforter around him.
“Turn on the video, I wanna see you.” Huo Mian smiled.
Then, Zhixin hung up and sent his sister a video call…
“Dang… You’re dressed like a polar bear. What are you doing?” Zhixin was shocked when he saw Huo Mian. His sister was wearing an out-of-style parka with the hood over her head.
She indeed looked like a polar bear…
“I just finished eating with Mom, I called you because I was bored after coming out.”
“I was wondering why it looked so familiar, it’s the gate of our community,” smiling, Zhixin said.
“How have you been lately? Do you have a lot of homework? Are you tired?”
“No, it’s pretty relaxing. The education curriculum here is different than that of China, they don’t make me memorize for tests. Our teachers think that creativity is more important.”
“That’s good.” Huo Mian nodded.
“Right, Sis, tell my brother-in-law to stop giving me money. He gave me a card when I left, with a million dollars in it. I’ll be good for a long time, I think I won’t be able to finish spending it, even after I graduate. The thing is, my brother-in-law ordered GK’s Finance Department to send me a million every month. It’s too scary, I’m no spoiled brat, I don’t want to flex and live a luxurious life. I thank him for his good intentions, but I really don’t want to burn money.”
“Okay, how dare Qin Chu give you money behind my back. I’ll take care of him when I go home,” Huo Mian purposely said.
“No, no, no… You’ll never hear the end of it if you dare touch my brother in law. Huo Mian, do not bully your husband… He’s one of a kind, you really have to cherish him, you know?”
Jing Zhixin’s expression was so serious that Huo Mian smiled.
“Don’t laugh, I am being serious, did you hear me?”
“I heard you, Young Master Zhixin. I will cherish him. I know that nobody else in the world will treat me better than Qin Chu,” Huo Mian said in a melancholic tone.
“Okay, let’s end it here. You’re gonna freeze out here in the middle of the night. Also, you’re wasting data, we’ll chat tomorrow when you have wifi.”
Zhixin didn’t know what was happening on Huo Mian’s end and tried to get her home in fear of her catching a cold.
“If… If something happened to me one day, you and Mom have to be strong, and you have to take care of her for me.”
“Pff… Sis, why are you saying depressing things like that out of the blue?”
