SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Such A Flashy Lifestyle (10)
“Good morning, Mr. Qin,” Huo Mian said dizzily as she rubbed her eyes.
“Get up and wash up, I’ll wait for you downstairs.” Qin Chu kissed Huo Mian on the cheek and then went downstairs.
After Huo Mian got up and washed up, she walked downstairs. The first-floor dining room was very well lit.
She could see the garden outside through a tall tempered glass window, which made her feel refreshed.
“Young Mistress, good morning.”
“Good morning, Young Mistress.”
Along the way, the maids Huo Mian encountered all greeted her, making her feel quite uncomfortable.
“Did you sleep well last night?” asked Qin Chu with spoiling adoration.
“Really? But I didn’t sleep well at all,” Qin Chu said with quite a bit of profoundness, as he sipped on his coffee.
“Uhm… is it because I snored?” asked Huo Mian as she tilted her head.
“Then is it because we moved to a new place, and you’re not used to the bed?” asked Huo Mian as she smiled.
“It’s not that either.”
“Then why didn’t you sleep well?” Huo Mian was curious.
“Because you seduced me after you got drunk last night, and before I made my next move, you flopped and fell onto the bed. You fell asleep like a pig,” Qin Chu calmly said.
Huo Mian, “…”
“So you have terrible alcohol tolerance. That’s what I found out from it.”
“I’m sorry, Mr. Qin, allow me to apologize.”
“There’s no point in apologizing, you need to make up for last night with your actions.”
“What do you want for compensation?” Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu with puppy-eyes.
“I’ll let you off the hook if we do it twice tonight… and make up for last night, or else it wouldn’t be worth it for my late night cold shower.”
“Ahem… can you speak quieter? There are other people around.” Huo Mian felt awkward.
She was scared the maids nearby would hear this…
When Qin Chu saw how scared and embarrassed Huo Mian was, he happily smiled in satisfaction.
“What are our plans today, honey?” Huo Mian asked as she took a bite of bread.
“Whatever you want.”
“Uhm… then I want to bring you back to the old house, because my mom and Zhixin want to celebrate my birthday.”
Qin Chu slowly held up his coffee cup and didn’t say anything…
“But it’s fine if you don’t want to go. I’ll come back very soon since we are still having dinner with Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling.”
She was worried that Qin Chu would feel awkward, so Huo Mian found an excuse for him…
“No, it’s okay, I’ll come with you,” Qin Chu raised his head and said with determination.
“But my mom… she might not have a good attitude.” Huo Mian was a bit worried.
“I know, but I’m prepared to accept whatever she throws at me… My family owes that to her. I’ve been prepared to take responsibility for everything and anything, since the day I got back together with you.”
Qin Chu’s words sounded very manly, and Huo Mian felt extremely moved deep down.
She knew that her mother wouldn’t treat him nicely, but he was still willing to accompany her, which could only mean that he loved her, and in turn, loved her family.
After they ate, the two went off inside Qin Chu’s Maybach…
When they passed by a shopping center, Qin Chu got off the car to buy swallow’s nest, sea cucumber, and other high-end health supplements. He also bought a laptop and phone along the way. U.p..dated by Novelfull.Com
On the way over, Huo Mian suddenly said, “Honey, are we moving over to the South Hill Manor immediately? Are we going to live there from now on?”
“You don’t like it?”
“It’s not that, I just think it’s too early to move there. We don’t have a baby yet, so wouldn’t it be too empty with just the two of us? Plus it’s so far from where I work, and most importantly, I still kind of miss our home at Imperial Park.”
Huo Mian said several reasons in one breath, but most importantly, she wasn’t willing to move out of their downtown home yet.
They lived there for over four months, from the day they got married until now, and it already felt like home.
Qin Chu clearly understood what Huo Mian meant, so he nodded, “Then how about this, let’s live in downtown from Monday to Thursday, and head to the South Hill Manor on Friday Night and stay until Sunday?”
“Sure, that’s a great idea, we can live at both places.” Huo Mian nodded and agreed.
After driving for thirty or so minutes, they finally arrived at the old house. The large red word that spelled out ‘Demolition’ could still be seen painted on the walls.
Qin Chu frowned. “What happened in the end with the demolition ordered by the Huo Corporation?”
