SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Let’s Make a Little Human (3)
“My Qiqi…” Director Physician Li slowly said.
Huo Mian was immediately speechless…
Qiqi was Chief Li’s daughter, who was only 16 years old. She was now attending grade ten at a top-tier high school in C City.
If she knew, then…
“You should go back and ask her, maybe she’s a fan of Ni Yang. I really hope that this didn’t happen because of something that went wrong inside our hospital.”
“I will, what about those reporters outside? Do we need to issue a statement or something?” asked Director Li with a slight headache.
“No, we don’t… Those people came for Ni Yang in the first place, we won’t respond to them… Soon, they’ll give up, and… for future treatments, Ni Yang shouldn’t come to South Side. We should privately book a place to meet somewhere else. We can’t negatively impact his career.”
Huo Mian was very protective of Ni Yang…
After all, depression wasn’t a good thing, and it would be quite troubling if it was ever revealed…
Ni Yang was finally getting better, so she didn’t want this success to be destroyed by external factors.
The crisis finally slowly died down…
Huo Mian stayed for a bit, and after seeing that there wasn’t any pressing issue anymore, she drove away from South Side.
– At GK Corporate Headquarters –
“Young Madam, you are here.”
“Yes, what’s wrong? You look down.”
Huo Mian could see how depressed Assistant Yang was today as if there was something on his mind…
“After the president found out about what happened today, he was furious, and he fired the public relations team at GK Film and Television. The salaries of those at our own PR Department were deducted as well… Anyways, the president has been very upset the entire afternoon, and we’re all very scared.”
“Why did he fire all those people?” Huo Mian was shocked.
“Because he said that if you had to handle everything that came up, then what did he still need those people around for?”
“Uhm… okay, I’ll check on him.”
Qin Chu’s tantrum directly threw the entire GK into a gloomy mood…
Huo Mian pushed the door open and went in without knocking…
“Get out…” Qin Chu was very upset; his back was against the door as he leaned into his chair, deep in thought.
“Honey…” Huo Mian spoke.
Qin Chu felt as if his heart was about to melt…
He immediately stood up. “Hey, why didn’t you call after all that trouble? I could’ve picked you up.”
“It’s fine, I just happened to receive a call from the hospital this afternoon and went to take care of things.”
Just as Huo Mian sat down…
Assistant Yang immediately brought in a glass of warm milk… and then sensibly went out.
“Honey… did they upset you today?” asked Huo Mian with a smile.
Qin Chu sat beside her and nodded as he wrapped his arm around her shoulder…
Huo Mian held up the glass of milk and took a small sip…
“Anger harms the soul, here, have some milk.” After speaking, she raised the glass up to Qin Chu’s mouth.
However, Qin Chu didn’t drink any. Instead, he pressed his lips against Huo Mian’s and kissed clean the leftover milk on the side of her lips.
“Don’t do that…” Huo Mian was immediately filled with embarrassment.
“Drinking like this… is more sincere,” laughed Qin Chu…
It didn’t matter how upset he was, as soon as he saw Huo Mian, heard her speak, and saw her laugh… he would immediately brighten up. That was how magical his wife was…
“Don’t be mad because of these things… I don’t want you to be mad… It’s already hard enough that you’re the president of GK, I don’t want you to worry about these things, it breaks my heart…” Huo Mian raised her hand and lightly brushed Qin Chu’s slight frown.
“I know, Honey…”
Just then, Huo Mian received a text from Department Director Li…
“Huo Mian, it was Qiqi. She accidentally told her friends about this at school, and since they didn’t know how to keep a secret, media outlets took advantage of them… Sorry, I nearly damaged Ni Yang and our hospital’s reputations.”
Department Director Li truly felt extremely sorry….
Huo Mian replied to her, and then she raised her head and said, “Honey, come, let’s go eat.”
Qin Chu looked at his watch. “It’s not time to go yet, Honey. There’s still an hour left before the end of the day.”
“Don’t worry, let everyone off work early today. Everyone has been very busy with the thirty-year anniversary-party. You should relax as well, what do you think?”
Qin Chu then stood up and called his assistant on the internal line.
“Let everyone know that they can leave an hour early today.”
Then, Qin Chu and Huo Mian went downstairs together…
“Oh right… did Jiang Linyue go to work in T City?” after leaving Qin Chu’s office, Huo Mian asked Assistant Yang.
