SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Let’s See Who’s More Ruthless (4)
“Okay, take care of her for now.” Huo Mian sighed slightly after she hung up the phone.
She was scared and didn’t know how to face her mother. She wasn’t worried about being blamed or cursed at, but she was terrified of her mother’s silent treatment.
It scared her more than any words could…
By accident, Huo Mian arrived outside the Seductive Fox Nightclub. Last time she came here was to pick Zhu Lingling up.
In the end, a battle erupted… and she was sued.
This time, she came here because she didn’t know where else to go. Therefore, as if she were in a trance, Huo Mian walked in.
The first floor was the bar; it was a 500-square-meter area, with eardrum-blowing music blasting from the speakers.
“Hi Miss, what would you like to drink?” a waiter asked politely.
“A dozen bottles of Budweiser, thank you.” Huo Mian opened her mouth faintly.
“Okay, please wait.”
Soon, the waiter came back with the beer…
“Would you like me to open them?”
“Open them all.” Huo Mian nodded.
The waiter opened the 12 bottles of beer for Huo Mian…
She sat by a wooden table in the southeast corner of the bar.
Not far from her, in the middle of the dancefloor, was a group of Russian beauties pole dancing.
Countless men and women moved to the beat around them…
Huo Mian stared at the bustling scene and felt even more depressed…
She suddenly remembered a song by Ah-Sun. The name of the song was ‘Leaves’.
There were two sentences in the song that really spoke to her –”being lonely is a one-person party; partying is just a group of people being lonely.”
Perhaps all the people here were lonely, and that’s why they were all here, drinking their troubles away.
Huo Mian was enjoying her beer when she suddenly heard a man’s voice from behind.
“Hey, pretty lady, are you here alone?”
Huo Mian turned around to see a middle-aged man in a white shirt and black suit pants. He looked well-learned and refined, with a smile on his face.
Huo Mian glanced at him but didn’t say anything. Then, she turned around and kept drinking.
“Are you upset about something? You’ve ordered so much to drink.” The man didn’t want to give up; he scooted up to Huo Mian and sat down across from her.
Huo Mian was still silent…
The man raised a hand and snapped his fingers.
A waiter immediately walked up, “Sir, what would you like?”
“A bottle of Jack Daniels, two fruit platters, and some dessert.”
“Okay, sir, please wait.”
After the waiter left, the man looked at Huo Mian with interest, “I love proud and mighty-looking pretty girls like you.”
Huo Mian glanced at him in disgust, “And I hate well-dressed nightclub studhorse animals like you.”
“A well-dressed animal? Me?” The man was a little surprised.
“I’m obviously not talking about myself,” Huo Mian replied coldly.
“Haha, that’s a good word, it describes me perfectly.” The man smiled; he didn’t seem to care.
“Sir, your drink.”
Soon, the waiter slowly brought them the liquor, fruit platters, and small plates of desserts.
“Pretty lady, let me buy you a drink.” The man opened the bottle of Jack Daniels and poured some into two glasses, both with ice and black tea.
He then handed a glass to Huo Mian…
“I only drink Budweiser.” Huo Mian didn’t even bother looking at him.
The man looked at Huo Mian’s profile closely; under the nightclub lights, this woman was beautiful.
The women at these nightclubs all wore revealing and sexy clothes. Therefore, his expression lit up when he saw Huo Mian, in a beige wind coat, jeans, low-heel shoes, and her hair up in a bun. Her outfit was casual yet graceful.
“Let’s get to know each other, this is my business card.” The man took out a golden business card from his pocket and pushed it over to Huo Mian. Huo Mian glanced at it and laughed.
“You work at GK?” Huo Mian finally seemed to be smiling as she looked at him.
“Yes, hi, allow me to introduce myself. I am the deputy manager of GK’s IT department, Wang Tao. Nice to meet you.”
“Oh, hi, Mr. Wang, I am the wife of GK’s President Qin Chu, my name is Huo Mian.”
The middle-aged man’s expression changed immediately upon hearing this. Then, he laughed, “Pretty girl, quit joking around.”
“I’m serious. Why don’t you go and ask your president?” Huo Mian raised the beer bottle in her hand and smiled mysteriously.
