SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(She's Not Some Woman You Can Touch (4)
Huo Mian nodded, "Yeah, he was discharged."
"I saw the formation outside the hospital, so many female celebrities went."
"Yeah, there were a few that I didn't even recognize. A lot of people were watching, and a lot of the media attended."
"I saw from one of the smaller news outlets that while Su Yu was staying at South Side, he was really flirty with one of the nurses there. Do you know who she is? Come on, tell us what happened?"
"What's so fun about entertainment news? At most, it's a rich boy trying to get in bed with someone. It's boring," Gao Ran took a big bite of beef and interjected.
"Guys won't understand topics like this." Zhu Lingling immediately grabbed Huo Mian's hand and asked, "Come on, tell me about it."
A little guilty, Huo Mian glanced at Qin Chu, and then she answered, "Actually…I'm not sure either. Su Yu always has bodyguards around and is hard to get close to, so his private life is kept pretty discreet."
"Oh, you have a point. Even if someone like Su Yu screws himself into a scandal, the media won't be able to report about it."
Zhu Lingling mumbled to herself, finally putting an end to this topic…
While they were eating, Zhu Lingling took a photo of them on her phone; Huo Mian, Qin Chu, and Gao Ran were all in it.
Then, she uploaded the photo to their class group…
The group immediately exploded…
"Zhu Lingling, did you take that photo? Is it real?"
"Is that Huo Mian beside Qin Chu?"
"Where are you guys eating? The hot pot looks good."
Zhu Lingling rolled her eyes and cursed, "Idiots, that's not the point."
Soon after, Liu Siying signed on as well. She asked, "Is this Seven Aromas?"
She definitely knew her stuff – she could tell it was Seven Aromas just by looking at the pot in the middle of the table. Liu Siying was indeed impressive.
"Yeah, why? Do you want to come?" Zhu Lingling provoked.
"You think I don't have the guts to?" Liu Siying replied.
"I'll be here waiting, if you don't come in 15 minutes, I'll assume that you've chickened out."
Zhu Lingling always wanted to throw a wet blanket over Liu Siying's arrogance…
She never had the chance to do it in the past. Now that this opportunity appeared before her, how was she going to pass that up?
Huo Mian and Qin Chu had already exited the group chat, so they didn't know what was going on.
After ten or so minutes, Liu Siying barged through the door, leaving Huo Mian dumbfounded.
"Not bad, you're punctual," Zhu Lingling said as she looked at Liu Siying.
Liu Siying didn't say anything. She glanced at Qin Chu, then walked up to the table and sat down on an empty seat.
"Um… who is this…?" Bewildered, Gao Ran looked at the woman who suddenly entered the scene.
Huo Mian didn't say anything either; she was a bit dumbfounded as well.
Qin Chu's face, on the other hand, was expressionless…
"She's a high school classmate, I invited her to come, but I didn't think she actually would," Zhu Lingling explained.
"Qin Chu, have you been busy?" Liu Siying looked around before her gaze finally stopped on Qin Chu's handsome face.
Qin Chu, who did not plan to reply, carefully put a shrimp ball in Huo Mian's bowl.
Proud of herself, Zhu Lingling laughed, "We're here to celebrate Huo Mian's promotion."
"Oh really? Congratulations on the promotion," Liu Siying looked at Huo Mian and said unwillingly.
"Qin Chu, my dad said that our companies are partnering up, and that Uncle Qin was the one who personally proposed the partnership. It's a good project. My dad said that you're really good at your job, and GK's doing even better than it used to."
Qin Chu gracefully wiped the corner of his mouth with a napkin. Then, he said, "I didn't hear about a partnership with your dad's company. If my dad was the one who made the decision, that is just his decision. There's no guarantee that the board will approve it."
Liu Siying's expression darkened upon hearing what he said…
Qin Chu was still unwilling to help her save some face…
"Chu, what's going on? Is she a fan of yours?" Gao Ran pointed out thoughtlessly.
Qin Chu immediately stared at him with a murderous expression…
"I do like Qin Chu. I've… liked him for many years," Liu Siying suddenly confessed.
