SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
It wasn't until Qin Chu got off the car did Huo Mian recognize who it was. Smiling like an idiot, she exclaimed, "Hey, it's you! Why are you here?"
Qin Chu's expression was grim, but he remained silent. He picked Huo Mian up and dropped her onto the passenger seat. After buckling up her seat belt, the pair drove off.
It was already close to 10 PM when Qin Chu finished running errands. He had to drop by his family's mansion.
His father was interested in investing in a 5-billion-yuan project, so he asked Qin Chu to come over and talk about it.
In the end, he and his father held different opinions and their conversation went stale. Qin Chu called Huo Mian as soon as he left.
At that time, Huo Mian had gone to the bathroom, so Huang Yue was the one who picked up her phone.
Huang Yue drank a lot as well, so she vaguely blurted out the address of the karaoke place they were at.
That's how Qin Chu got there. He waited outside for over an hour before he saw Huo Mian come out.
She was already swaying as she walked in an S-shaped pattern, but she still had the frame of mind to help others get cabs first.
She didn't think of herself until everyone else left? Who was his wife, Robinhood?
Wasn't she worried that illegitimate cab drivers would kidnap her, take her out to the countryside and then rape and kill her? Was she really a genius? Did she not know about safety precautions? He couldn't believe that just a while ago, because she expressed her gratitude towards him on TV, he let that pregnant patient's husband off the hook and got the insurance company to retract their lawsuit. He was always thinking of her, but she drank herself into oblivion.
"Have some water," Qin Chu handed her a bottle.
Huo Mian chugged the water but immediately threw up.
All her puke was aimed at the driver's seat and splashed all over Qin Chu's pants.
He was wearing Versace's limited-edition pants, not to mention that it was worth more than 100,000 yuan.
The point was, Qin Chu was a germaphobe! Was it really okay for her to just throw up all over him?
"Huo…Mian…" Qin Chu gritted his teeth and growled.
"Damn it, no more alcohol for you again." Qin Chu festered for a while but didn't know what else to say.
Yell at her? He didn't have the heart to. Finally, all he could do was warn her not to drink again. It was a first for him to see someone act like this when they're drunk.
"No, I like alcohol, it tastes good. Mixing red wine with Sprite is better than mixing it with black tea," Huo Mian fell back in her seat and mumbled.
Qin Chu didn't want to argue with her. Stepping on the gas pedal, the car instantly took off and they were home in minutes.
After they got off the car and went upstairs, Qin Chu immediately carried Huo Mian to the second-floor bathroom.
After he filled the tub with water, he dropped Huo Mian right in…
"Have a nice bath." Qin Chu was furious.
"I want bubbles, why aren't there any bubbles?" Huo Mian pouted as she began splashing water everywhere with her hands.
Qin Chu patiently pumped some body wash into the bath water, and white bubbles slowly began to form.
Qin Chu bent down and tried out the temperature; it was perfect, so he got up to leave.
Huo Mian suddenly smashed her hands on the water to create a giant water dome, drenching Qin Chu entirely.
Seething, Qin Chu held down Huo Mian's arms and warned, "No more moving, take your bath."
"Hey, you have really pretty eyelashes. They're really pretty," Huo Mian said as she moved closer to Qin Chu. Her lips came down onto his eyelashes, nuzzling them.
Qin Chu felt his defense come crashing down, slowly but surely…
He really wanted to take her, then and there. However, she was drunk and not clear headed.
He couldn't, he definitely couldn't… His mind thought as his body felt stuck to her, unable to move.
"Let me tell you a secret, Qin Chu. Do you know what I was thinking when I met you for the first time all those years ago?" Huo Mian hazily leaned her head on Qin Chu's shoulder and sniffed around.
Qin Chu's heart skipped a beat… He was looking forward to her answer.
Was her answer the same as his? When she first met him, did she know that he would one day become her husband?
