SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(I Will Take the Heat for You (7)
“Mrs. Su…” Huo Mian looked at Mrs. Su, her eyes wide from shock.
“Huo Mian, please don’t misunderstand me. I’m not trying to separate you and your husband… I’m just asking… if you are really going to become single again, please give Su Yu a chance. He really really likes you… I’ve never seen him like someone so much, and as his mother, I feel for him. I know that you love your husband… but with all the media reporting otherwise, I don’t really know what to believe. I don’t know what’s really going on, so… I’ve asked you here to talk about it face to face.”
“Mrs. Su… my husband and I love each other very much and our relationship is stable. We’ve known each other for many years,” Huo Mian said honestly…
“Alright, if this is the case, just pretend we didn’t have this conversation today. Please don’t blame me for being ridiculous. Ha… honestly, even I think I’m being a little bit ridiculous, but I’m just a mother who loves her son… I really don’t want to see him like that… he really likes you. Plus, I really like you too. Of course, if the two of you are not fated to be together, that’s alright too.”
Mrs. Su was very open-minded. Hearing Huo Mian’s rejection, she didn’t say any more.
“Sorry Mrs. Su, I’ve disappointed you.”
“No no no, I’m the one who should be apologizing. As your senior, my actions are quite inappropriate for my status. Please don’t tell Su Yu. With such a strong personality, he will definitely be angry with me,” Mrs. Su reminded…
“Okay, I won’t.”
“Good, then hurry up and eat. You shouldn’t stay out for so long,” Mrs. Su didn’t get mad at Huo Mian for her rejection.
Rather, she was more than friendly with her. The truth was, Mrs. Su was actually a woman with innocent thoughts.
With all the bad news floating around and the fact that Mrs. Qin hated Huo Mian, she just thought that, if Huo Mian and Qin Chu were to separate… and she ended up single… that she could give Su Yu a shot.
That way, her son wouldn’t have to suffer as much from his unrequited love.
However, since Huo Mian had already made it clear, she wasn’t about to bring it up again.
When Huo Mian left the Su residence, it was already dark outside.
Just as the car that had her inside left, Su Yu’s car came back.
The two cars passed each other, but because of the blackened windows on both of their cars, Su Yu didn’t notice the person inside the Audi A8.
“Mom… you didn’t tell me you were having seafood for dinner?”
Su Yu was greeted by a table full of seafood as soon as he stepped into the house.
“I had a guest over, it’s not for you.” Mrs. Su sat down in the living room, sipping tea.
“A guest? Who’s privileged enough for my mother to invite them into our house?” Su Yu laughed, spinning his keys in his hands.
“Huo Mian.” Mrs. Su replied calmly.
“Who?!” Young Master Su was no longer laughing.
“Huo Mian, Huo Yuanjia’s Huo (TL note: Huo Yuanjia’s a famous martial artist in China), Mian as in sleeping – Huo Mian (TL note: Mian directly translates to sleep in Chinese).” Mrs. Su even decided to spell it out.
She looked almost comical… Mrs. Su was also a rascal at times.
“Mom… are you joking around with me?” Su Yu was clearly doubtful.
“You can look at the surveillance if you don’t believe me…”
“You invited her to our home?”
“To eat seafood?”
“Then… what were you trying to do?” Su Yu was truly speechless.
“I like her,” Mrs. Su replied, completely unfazed.
“Mom… don’t mess around.”
Su Yu clearly didn’t believe her…
“You don’t like her?” Mrs. Su asked while staring at her son’s face.
Young Master Su’s face immediately ruddied with embarrassment upon hearing his mother’s acquisition…
“Don’t change the topic. Tell me, why did you ask her to come?”
“Nothing really! I just showed her your childhood pictures.”
“WHAT?!” Su Yu truly lost it.
“Mom… please don’t tell me that you showed her the picture of me when I was 100 days old… dressed in the stupid red belly wrap!” Su Yu was about to explode.
“Yep, that one!” Mrs. Su was looking incredibly proud of herself.
