SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(High-Key Announcing the Relationship (5)
“I’m not giving you my hair,” Huo Mian insisted.
“Is there really no room for negotiation?” Huo Siqian looked at her with puppy-dog eyes.
“So… you’re not going to give me a present? You’re so cheap…” Huo Siqian muttered.
Was she cheap? Of course not, but she didn’t buy anything in advance.
“What’s your WeChat number…?” Huo Mian asked as she took out her phone.
“You’re adding me?” That immediately piqued Huo Siqian’s interest.
“Yeah.” He rarely saw Huo Mian nodding her head.
Huo Siqian immediately took out his phone from his pocket and showed Huo Mian his QR code for her to scan.
Huo Mian quietly scanned the QR code with her phone and was speechless when she saw his account name.
Was he a gentleman? Of course not. He probably had the most ironic account name.
After he accepted her request, Huo Mian sent him a red packet.
On the red packet was ‘happy birthday’…
Huo Siqian exclaimed in pleasant surprise, “Oh hey, I got a red packed, nice!”
However, his mood immediately changed upon opening up the red packet…
She only sent him 8.88 yuan…
“Thanks for being so ‘generous’, Little Sis…” Huo Siqian looked at Huo Mian hopelessly.
“You’re already super rich, you don’t need the money. It’s the thought that counts.”
“Fine… you do have a point there, I have nothing to say.”
Although Huo Mian only gave him a tiny red packet, Huo Siqian was still exhilarated…
That was because Huo Mian had added his WeChat account… he still counted that as a win.
“Go to bed, I already made plans with friends.”
Huo Siqian waved goodbye to her…
Then, he turned around to leave, closing the door behind him…
Huo Mian let out a sigh of relief. It seemed like he was really just fooling around with her, but it scared her half to death.
The DNA test was just him pulling a stunt on her, wasn’t it?
Huo Mian sat by the bedside, bored to death. Unlike home, she felt restricted, wherever she went.
There wasn’t a bathroom in the guest room, so even taking a shower felt like a hassle…
She also didn’t want to go all the way out to use the public bathroom, so she had no choice but to play with her phone.
She ended up chit-chatting with Zhu Lingling…
“Haha… you said that you only gave Huo Siqian 8.88 yuan?” Zhu Lingling’s hysterical laughter filled her voice message.
“Don’t be so cheap… remember how he bought you an 8-million yuan bracelet on your birthday?”
“So what?” Huo Mian didn’t think it was a big deal.
“8 million is really different from 8.88 yuan.”
“He doesn’t need the money, and I wasn’t informed in advance. There’s nothing else I could give him, and he kept asking me for a present. So, I had no choice but to give him a red packet via WeChat.” Huo Mian sounded helpless.
“You’re a genius,” Zhu Lingling exclaimed.
After chatting with Zhu Lingling for a while, Qin Chu called her…
“Hey hubby,” Huo Mian obediently said.
“Why are you being such a good girl? Did you do something you shouldn’t have?” Qin Chu asked.
“Of course not, why would I?”
“You didn’t drink behind my back, did you?” Qin Chu sounded worried.
“I didn’t… I promise.”
“What are you up to?”
“Um… I was bored, so I chatted with Lingling for a while over WeChat. What about you?”
“I just finished work.”
“How’s the situation over there?” Huo Mian was concerned.
“Pretty much all dealt with, I’ll be back by tomorrow.”
“That’s great!” Huo Mian sounded excited.
“Why, do you miss me?” Qin Chu chuckled.
“Of course I do…”
“Yeah, I miss you too. I haven’t had you in a while, I miss the way you taste.”
“Ahem…” Huo Mian broke into awkward coughs upon hearing Qin Chu’s explicit confession.
“Mr. Qin, can’t you be more mindful of your words?”
“Why would I do that? Honey, you need to slowly get used to it.”
Huo Mian, “…”
“Honey… are you getting your visitor soon?”
“Um… yeah my time of the month will be here soon.”
“Maybe I should buy a return ticket home right now.” Qin Chu was anxious; if Huo Mian’s time of the month comes, then he’ll have to wait another week. It would probably drive him nuts…
