SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(A Little Too Much Fun (8)
"President Huo, that's all I have to report."
"Very well. It's fortunate that Mian is alright, or else Zhou Guangming would be in the crematory right now, not the First Hospital."
"We will keep a close watch on Miss Huo Mian. Don't worry, President Huo, we will make sure nothing else happens to her."
"Good work, you may go now."
After chasing out his men, Huo Siqian was thinking of giving Mian a call. However, he was interrupted by Huo Siyi, who suddenly burst into the room.
"What is it?" Huo Siqian looked up.
"I don't want to work on the project in England anymore." Huo Siyi didn't like Huo Siqian very much, but on the surface, he needed to show his respect to his older brother.
"Why? Isn't it going well? I've been saying good things about you in front of Dad."
"It's always raining in England. The weather there sucks, and it affects my mood. I also have no friends there, and I have no place to have fun. I'm bored to death. "
"Dad said you're all grown up now, you shouldn't always be thinking about going out and having fun. You should help me out a little when it comes to work."
"I can help you out here, in the country. I just don't want to go abroad anymore! Just stop sending me overseas, I won't be going. I will tell Dad myself." Huo Siyi walked out before Huo Siqian could say anything.
"Tsk tsk... Look at the spoiled brat." Huo Siqian shook his head and sighed.
He was no longer in a hurry to get rid of Huo Siqian and Huo Yanyan anymore, because they were no longer a threat.
The only threat was the old guy who won't die, and his… mistress.
- Dinner time -
Huo Siqian sat beside Huo Zhenghai in the dining room of their mansion. Huo Siqian would often pour drinks and make sure his father's bowl was buried in a mountain of food. He was indeed very good at putting up a front as a dutiful and obedient son.
Huo Siyi and Huo Yanyan, on the other hand, often went out, so they very rarely ate dinner at home. Dinner time was also only attended by Shen Jiani and Jiang Hong.
"Dad, I have some news."
"What is it?" Huo Zhenghai seemed rather interested.
"I heard Su Yu has taken an interest in Mian."
"Su Yu? The only young master from the Su family? The only heir of the Su Family after five generations?" When it comes to the Su family, even Huo Zhenghai was in awe of their reputation.
Rumor had it that in C City, the Su surname entitled you to do whatever you liked.
The Su household was a family with a deep history. Back in the National Period of China (1912-1945), they were a family of extreme power. Many of their family members worked as either rich businessmen or high-level officials.
Their positions were already deeply rooted in Mainland China and could not be easily shaken.
As the only child of the fifth generation in the Su household, Su Yu was blessed by God the moment he was born.
"Yes, that's the one."
"How can he possibly be interested in Huo Mian?"
Huo Zhenghai was surprised. That unfavorable daughter of his didn't possess a beautiful face, nor a curvy body.
She wasn't tender nor soft, and the way she spoke was often fierce and cruel.
How could Su Yu possibly be interested in her?
"Mian is very unique in her own way, so it's not surprising at all. Remember when she was still in school? She had something going on with the Qin family's son." Huo Siqian chuckled.
"What? Su Yu likes Huo Mian? Are you sure this is not a joke?" Shen Jiani was rather surprised; she knew her daughter had been trying to get close to Su Yu, but she couldn't imagine Huo Mian would have a tie with him.
Jiang Hong sipped on her wine gracefully and laughed, "What's so funny about that? To each's own. Our Yanyan is pretty, like a flower, but she might not be Su Yu's type. It's hard to say when it comes to these things."
Shen Jiani glanced at Jiang Hong. She knew Jiang Hong did it on purpose, but she had no intention of arguing.
In terms of what happened during school, Huo Zhenghai was aware of everything. But they were all kids back then and were too young to speak of marriage. It had no business value, so he never took it seriously.
"Where did you hear this? Is it true?" Doubtful, Huo Zhenghai questioned him once more.
