SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Fame Comes with Trouble (5)
“Oh, it’s you.” Huo Mian smiled.
“Head Nurse… I’ve never gotten around to thanking you for saving me last time. These are some free-range eggs my dad brought over from our town. It’s very nutritious and comes from the free-range chickens my family raised. Please take them.”
The nurse held up the little basket with both of her hands… offering Huo Mian her thanks.
“…You didn’t have to do that.” The truth was, Huo Mian didn’t save her so that she could thank her, so Huo Mian didn’t want to accept it.
“Which era do you think we are in now? Why are you still giving eggs as gifts? Our head nurse drives an Audi R8, does she care about your eggs? Seriously…”
A few orthopedic nurses mocked her…
That little nurse’s cheeks turned slightly red, as she awkwardly held onto the basket…
It truly was a somewhat embarrassing gift, but she really didn’t have anything else to offer.
The head nurse drove a luxurious car that cost over a million yuan, and she was only an intern nurse. Her monthly salary wasn’t even enough for Huo Mian to treat her car to maintenance.
So what else could she give Huo Mian? After much thought and discussing with her boyfriend, she decided to give Huo Mian some local specialties from her hometown.
She grew up in the countryside, and after she called her father, he took the train for more than ten hours to get here.
He brought along two hundred free-range chicken eggs. She kept a hundred for herself and planned to give the other hundred to Huo Mian, to show her gratitude.
However, she never expected that she would be mocked…
Huo Mian’s expressions turned grim after she heard what they said. “She’s thanking me, the thought alone is priceless. Many things in this world can’t be measured with money, or else… it would lose the beauty it originally had.”
Those few nurses all pouted and fell silent upon hearing this…
Huo Mian carefully took the basket and looked inside it, “What pretty eggs, thanks. Also, thank your father for me.”
Hints of surprise appeared in the little nurse’s eyes. “Head Nurse, if you like them, I’ll send you more later on.”
“Okay, I’ll come to you after I finished eating these, but I have to pay you next time. I’ll only buy free-range eggs from your family in the future, is that okay?” Huo Mian smiled.
“No, no, no, if you like them, then I’ll give it to you for free. Free forever,” the nurse was flattered.
“Okay,” to save face for the nurse, Huo Mian agreed.
The nurse left with a brightened mood…
Respecting others was the most basic standard Huo Mian had for herself…
That wouldn’t change because of her identity or status…
After an afternoon of work, Huo Mian drove to the grocery store on her way home.
She bought plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, because… Mr. Qin was coming back today.
After all of these days of hard work, the issues in T City finally came to an end.
She wanted to make a delicious meal for Mr. Qin…
She wanted to make four dishes and a soup – meat and green bean stir-fry, steamed free-range eggs the nurse gave her with dried shrimp, braised carp, marinated chicken feet, and finally a beef and carrot stew…
The delicious aroma filled the room…
Even though their condo at Imperial Park wasn’t as luxurious and roomy as South Hill Manor, Huo Mian still liked it here very much.
After she prepared everything, she sat down on the couch and took out her phone. She was wearing an apron, and her hair was up in a ponytail.
“Mr. Qin, where are you?”
“I’m still in T City.”
“Huh? You’re still there? Didn’t you say that you would be back in the afternoon?” Huo Mian was a bit disappointed.
“Something happened last minute, I had to take care of it.”
“Oh… I thought you were coming back so I’ve made food for you, okay then…” Huo Mian sounded very disappointed.
She put away her phone, and took a deep breath…
Just as she walked up to the dinner table and was about to eat, she heard keys turning…
Huo Mian didn’t even stop to change her shoes, as she immediately rushed out barefoot, and wrapped around her arms around Qin Chu’s waist. “Ah… you’re terrible, didn’t you just say that you were still in T City?”
