SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Her Husband Is the Boss (8)
"Tsk tsk… Mr. Qin is truly omniscient like a god."
Huo Mian couldn't help but admire Qin Chu's wits. He always managed to see right through her.
"What do you need? Tell me."
"Nothing really. It's just that my mom's been nagging me to move back home. Of course, moving back home is not sensible since we're already married. But I do want to spend a couple of days at home with her and Zhixin."
"That's fine." Qin Chu nodded.
"You agreed?" Huo Mian didn't expect such an easy answer from Qin Chu.
"Yeah, go home for a couple of days. Buy your mom and your brother lots of things. If you don't have enough money, I'll get the Finance Department to transfer you some."
"... No, it's alright. I have enough. I think I have way more than enough."
Huo Mian was mostly using her own salary for her spendings, and her salary had also increased a lot along with her promotion.
With Qin Chu arranging her day-to-day needs, she didn't need to spend too much.
She didn't touch a single cent of the 50,000,000 yuan and Qin Chu's monthly salary.
Although Qin Chu didn't want to send his wife home to her mom, he could understand her feelings.
So, even if he was going to miss her dearly, he didn't want to tell her. He wanted to make sure that she was happy.
The couple both enjoyed the meal. When they arrived home, a phone call from the company pulled Qin Chu back to work.
As for Huo Mian, she took a shower and immediately got into bed, lying there as she flipped through some books and enjoyed some light music, relaxed as could be.
The next day, when Huo Mian got off work, she bought a few baskets of fresh vegetables and fruits and headed straight for her old house.
Due to his night classes, Zhixin hadn't returned home yet.
Yang Meirong cooked an entire chicken and made her some stir-fry dishes. The mother and daughter enjoyed a very rich dinner.
Suddenly, the door was pushed open and in came two people.
The person in the front was Auntie Wu, their next-door neighbor. As for the person behind her, Huo Mian couldn't see clearly enough to recognize their face.
"Oh? Did you just start eating?"
"Yeah." Yang Meirong got up and pulled up a chair for her to sit down in.
"Mian, you're back!" Aunty Wu gave an especially friendly smile to Huo Mian.
"Auntie Wu!" Huo Mian greeted.
"Just in time! My son, Liang, is also off for a couple of days and he's been complaining about being bored. Now that Huo Mian's back, the two of you can keep each other company."
"Liang came back?" Yang Meirong looked towards the man standing behind Auntie Wu.
Huo Mian also turned to look and was surprised by the huge change Xu Liang had gone through.
As neighbors, they've known each other ever since they were little and she had always known him as a very quiet boy.
Because he was older than Huo Mian by quite a few years, they weren't very close.
Later on, Xu Liang left the city for university, only returning after he graduated. Apparently, he was now working in a bank.
Now that he was 30 and still single, Auntie Wu was very worried.
"Hello, Auntie Yang," Xu Liang greeted Yang Meirong with a smile.
Xu Liang was 178 cm tall and looked very proper. He wasn't handsome but had clean features.
His black suit embodied the characteristics of a bank employee and he was pale and plump.
Plus, with Auntie Wu's above-average means, Xu Liang was born with a little sense of pride.
"Have the two of you eat yet? Care to have some more? I made chicken stew. Mian bought the chicken today and apparently, it's organic chicken fed with corn. I do like the taste." Yang Meirong was especially friendly.
"It's alright, we ate already. Oh right, is the white car parked outside your home yours?" Auntie Wu was surprised by the white Volkswagen CC parked outside.
Before Huo could answer, Yang Meirong said, "That's Mian's car."
