SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Please Call Me “Mrs. Qin” (3)
“Nowhere, Sis, we’re just friends. Why would you ask that?”
Truth be told, Huo Mian wasn’t happy with Zhixin’s reply, because she didn’t think he was telling her the truth.
She noticed how flirty Huang Yue was towards Zhixin. Huang Yue was 21 years old and Zhixin, 19.
She wasn’t much older than he was, but… he was still a student, and she had already gotten a taste of society.
This made things difficult. Moreover, Huo Mian didn’t want Zhixin to date at such an early age.
He was a man and was yet to have a stable income, how could he speak of love?
“No reason, I just wanted to tell you that… you haven’t graduated, and you don’t know what the future holds for you. If you date at such a young age, it might not be a stable relationship. In the end, you’ll be hurt for no good reason.”
“Sis, I understand what you mean.”
After some more convincing, Huo Mian stopped. After all, Zhixin was capable of making his own decisions.
Plus, if he really did fall for Huang Yue, Huo Mian wouldn’t be able to talk him out of it.
Huang Yue wasn’t a bad girl – she was nice, passionate, and innocent. However, Huo Mian wondered if two innocent people would be able to brave this harsh society together.
After all, love wasn’t a fairy tale, and reality was brutal…
– Inside the office of GK’s president –
Qin Chu hadn’t been back to the manor in days and didn’t even call his mother.
Most of the time, he ignored his mother’s calls because he knew what his mother wanted to say.
That left Mrs. Qin with no other choice but to ask the driver to take her to GK headquarters.
“Sir, the chairman’s wife is here,” Yang notified his boss.
“I got it,” Qin Chu replied as he looked at the documents on his table.
“Chu, why aren’t you answering my calls?” she interrogated her son as soon as she came in.
“I’ve been busy.”
“Pfft, I don’t believe you. That little vixen must have been with you, and she told you not to pick up my calls, right?”
Qin Chu looked up helplessly at his mother. “Mom, stop blaming everything on Huo Mian. All this time, it was me who has been chasing after her.”
“You are such a good-for-nothing! Where do you get the audacity to say something like this? You’re so outstanding, you can get whoever you want!”
“All I want is Huo Mian,” Qin Chu declared with determination.
“I won’t allow it.” Mrs. Qin was also determined.
“I wasn’t asking for your permission.”
“You…” After a few exchanges, Mrs. Qin’s face turned pale in fury.
“Chu, I found a lawyer for you. Let’s sue for divorce right away, okay? Um… I will find you a girl who’s a hundred times better and a thousand times prettier than her.”
“I’m not divorcing her, don’t even think about it. Mom… stop interfering with my personal life, or Huo Mian and I will immigrate to another country, and you will never see me again.”
“Are you… threatening me?” Mrs. Qin stared at her son, her eyes open wide with bewilderment.
All these years, no matter how unreasonable she was, her son had never said anything that was directly against her words.
After all, she was his mother. But… what his mother did to Huo Mian and her mother this time really angered Qin Chu.
“Think what you want. Oh, and… it’s best if you accept Mian, because soon, she may be giving you your first grandchild…”
“What?” Mrs. Qin felt a rush of blood surge up to her brain, causing her to feel dizzy.
“Is she trying to leverage power in our family by giving birth to your child? Does she want to use her child to take our money?”
“She doesn’t need to take anything, I will give everything I have to her,” Qin Chu answered in all seriousness.
“Oh my god, are you crazy, are you completely insane? What kind of love potion did that woman use on you? How can you be so head over heels for her?”
“Mom… I’m incredibly conscious. It’s you who is being overly biased.”
“Chu, don’t push me, or else… I will make sure that woman disappears from this Earth, do you understand?” Mrs. Qin used her last resort, punching Qin Chu where it hurts.
Qin Chu’s expression changed slightly upon hearing what his mother said…
