SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Does Your Mom Know That You Are This Fierce? (8)
"Nothing, I was just wondering."
"Whatever she thinks is her problem, it has nothing to do with me."
Evidently, Jiang Linyue was less than a nobody to Qin Chu...
"Yeah, she seems to care a lot about you. When I left today, she waited for me by the elevators and asked me questions."
Qin Chu furrowed his brows, clearly annoyed...
"I didn't say anything though, so she didn't get any information."
"If people from the company ever speak to you again, just ignore them."
"I got it." Huo Mian nodded.
The next morning, Huo Mian woke up realizing that she was almost late for work.
"Why didn't you wake me up?"
"You looked so peaceful."
"Dude, I'm going to be late for work!"
"No you won't, I'll drive you." Qin Chu had thought it through. He was going to chauffeur her around until she gets her car back. It's the only way he would stop worrying.
"But there's no time for breakfast anymore."
"I've already packed your breakfast. You can eat it on the way."
"Honey, you… are amazing." Huo Mian was completely touched. She shot up from the bed and quickly got ready.
Grabbing breakfast, they got into Qin Chu's car...
Soy milk and Chinese Donut Sticks, a winning combination; it was the most authentic Chinese breakfast and Huo Mian's longtime favorite.
Huo Mian didn't take the first bite, instead, she took the Chinese Donut Stick and held it up to Qin Chu's mouth.
After Qin Chu took a bite, Huo Mian took a bite.
They took turns taking bites throughout the entire car ride, both content as could be...
Thanks to Qin Chu's escorting, Huo Mian arrived at South Side right on time.
"I'm here. Be careful on the way."
"I'll pick you up when you get off work."
"Okay." Huo Mian smiled and waved Qin Chu goodbye.
She was having a fantastic morning, but everything changed when she saw the person standing beside the doors.
"Why are you here?"
"Little sister Mian, can you come up with another greeting the next time you see me? Am I that annoying?" Huo Siqian was dressed in a coffee-colored casual wear sweater, his face holding a touch of laughter.
Huo Siqian was actually quite handsome, a debonair really, with eyes that could draw in anyone when he smiles...
Many women fancied him, all recognizing him as a suave gentleman who could talk his way to any woman's heart.
Huo Mian was an exception, however, as her expression fell every time she saw him...
It had always been that way, ever since their first meeting when Huo Mian was only 10 years old, during which he gave her a box of Dove chocolates and she threw directly to the ground.
She had never accepted anything from the Huo family, therefore, she always declined Huo Siqian's nice and caring gestures.
"I don't like you, and the entire world knows that. Why should I hide it?" Huo Mian said coldly.
"I need a better news source. I can't believe I didn't know about your promotion. It's all my fault. Here, a gift for your promotion." Then, Huo Siqian handed over a delicate cotton box.
Opening the box, Huo Mian discovered a beautiful Cartier bracelet; it was the newest design and it was dazzling...
The English letters 'Mian' was carved on its outer rim; clearly, it was custom made.
The bracelet definitely didn't look cheap...
"Thank you, but I don't need it."
"Isn't it natural for an older brother to give a present to his younger sister? Why are you rejecting it?"
"I've never seen myself as your younger sister or you as my older brother."
"Mian, I've never seen you as an enemy. I'm different from Huo Siyi and Huo Yanyan."
"Huo Siqian, I can't help you. No matter how hard you try, I won't go back and help you fight against Shen Jiani."
Huo Mian had always thought that Huo Siqian was only nice to her because she was useful to him...
Huo Siqian gazed at Huo Mian meaningfully and asked, "Do you really think that I'm only nice to you because you're useful to me?"
"Haha… everyone says you're a genius but I really don't see it. You can be really silly sometimes."
"You're dumb, your entire family's dumb."
"Aren't you included in my family? Your IQ really needs some elevating." Huo Siqian chuckled, completely unbothered by Huo Mian's rejection.
"I don't have time for this nonsense. I need to work. Please move."
"Your job today is to keep me company."
Huo Mian froze for a second...
Huo Siqian continued, "I donated 30,000,000 yuan to South Side's new sanatorium so your deputy director agreed to let you, the little head nurse show me around."
"Huo Siqian, you really are crazy..." Huo Mian was completely stunned by Huo Siqian's ridiculous action of donating 30,000,000 yuan just to walk around with her.
"What's wrong with acting crazy once in a while? Life shouldn't be so serious. Mian, tell me, are you truly happy with Qin Chu?" Huo Siqian asked nonchalantly as he played around with the Cartier bracelet in his hands.
