SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Don’t Mess with Me (4)
“How will that be possible? You will no longer be the president of GK if you leave. Who would like you if you’re not a big president?” Huo Mian said jokingly.
“Mian, I’m serious… think about it.”
Qin Chu had actually thought about this for a while now. He knew that, for the time being, it was impossible to make his parents accept Huo Mian, make Huo Mian forgive his parents, or make Yang Meirong forgive him. The hatred between their families was not going to disappear easily.
So why not elope? Maybe time would heal everything…
Huo Mian still had her younger brother to take care of their mother. They would lead a terrific life as long as they left them with enough money.
As for his own parents, it was even easier. They had their driver outside and their nanny inside.
“I don’t want to leave,” Huo Mian thought about it for a moment and said.
She then continued, “I’ve lived here for more than two decades. Not only is my mom, my brother, Lingling, and my job here, I also have a lot of coworkers whom I’m close to. I’m not that young anymore and am no longer interested in new things or places. We should stay here, I don’t want to live in an unfamiliar city. I know what you’re worried about, but I’m sure we can think of a solution. Let’s take it one step at a time. Besides, ever since Uncle Jing passed away, my mother has been through a lot, raising Zhixin and I, and I can’t bear to leave them behind. If I did, I would always feel guilty, no matter how great my life is.”
“I didn’t think about all that… you’re right.” Upon hearing Huo Mian’s words, Qin Chu nodded.
Men and women definitely thought differently. Rather than a discrepancy in personality, there was an innate contrast between the sexes.
Daughters would buy their mothers flowers and presents during their birthday while sons may forget to even wish their mother a ‘happy birthday’. This doesn’t make the son unfilial, but rather boys were just generally less sensitive to these things when compared to girls.
No matter how intelligent and thoughtful Qin Chu was, he was nonetheless a man and wasn’t as aware of the small details as Huo Mian was…
He only understood everything after Huo Mian’s explanation…
“Don’t go to the company for the next couple of days. You have to stay here. You can’t take one step out of the hospital,” Huo Mian commanded.
“I understand, honey.”
“Hurry up and go to sleep. It’ll be good for your recovery.”
“Can you lie down beside me? I can’t sleep otherwise.”
“Mr. Qin, you are truly a baby.” Huo Mian chuckled.
“I can’t help it. I’ve been sleeping next to you for the past couple of months. I get insomnia whenever you’re not home,” Qin Chu said with the most pitiful expression ever.
Helpless, Huo Mian washed her hands, took off her jacket, and laid down beside Qin Chu carefully.
Luckily, the bed in Qin Chu’s VIP room was large enough to comfortably fit two people…
Qin Chu wrapped one arm around Huo Mian’s waist and took in her unique scent. At this moment, he was at peace…
He slowly closed his eyes and fell asleep…
Seeing Qin Chu’s face at such a close distance, Huo Mian couldn’t help but admire his profile; he was gorgeous even when he’s asleep.
Finally, she was unable to contain her fondness of him and stole a quick peck atop his nose.
“Don’t seduce me. I won’t be able to control myself…” Qin Chu’s sudden words startled Huo Mian.
“Weren’t you asleep?”
“How am I supposed to fall asleep when I’m holding you like this?” Qin Chu said as he opened his eyes intimately.
Huo Mian instantly understood the meaning to his words, and her cheeks ruddied immediately…
“Please, you’re currently trying to recover. Can you stop thinking about nonsense?” Huo Mian was speechless.
