SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Too Many People Want You Dead (8)
“I guess I have no choice but to say ‘yes’, Mrs. Qin,” Qin Chu said as he lovingly rubbed her head.
Just like that, the two of them began walking around their mansion on South Hill, amidst the snowfall.
It had been 7 years, and there had been a lot of snowfall around this area over the years.
However, Huo Mian never felt the way she did today, perhaps because of the person beside her.
Qin Chu held her hand, the warmth in his palm transmitting onto hers.
Just like an old couple, they quietly walked in the snow. They remained silent, but it wasn’t awkward at all.
Feeling emotional, Huo Mian took out her phone and put her cheek against Qin Chu’s, capturing this moment forever.
The two of them were both wearing white and standing in the snow.
Then, Huo Mian uploaded this selfie and a sentence onto her WeChat friend circle, “If you don’t leave me, I promise to not leave you until death does us apart.”
Huo Mian wasn’t good at photoshopping, so she only made their skin look a bit whiter before uploading the photo.
Therefore, their photos actually looked like them. Since they were both good-looking, their photos were stunning no matter how they took them.
“Woah, Sis, you and my brother-in-law are both super attractive…” Although he was in New Zealand, Zhixin didn’t forget to comment.
“Although it’s obvious ass-kissing, it works on me,” Huo Mian replied with a smile.
“Gather around, you can’t miss the Qin couple making single people feel bad by publicly displaying affection,” Gao Ran commented.
“Your words are so cheesy, girl. You’re three years late on the lingo,” Zhu Lingling said.
“I think you’re just jealous, why not ask Mr. Gao to say it to you as well?” Huo Mian replied.
Gao Ran sensibly replied to Zhu Lingling, “If you don’t leave me, I promise I will die.”
“Screw you,” Zhu Lingling cursed.
This couple constantly brightened up Huo Mian’s day…
Just then, Jiang Xiaowei commented, “We should have our weddings together on January 1st. You guys didn’t host a wedding yet, right?”
“We’re not in a hurry. We’re already legally married, so a wedding to us is just a ceremony.” Huo Mian smiled.
“So, you guys are going to plan a wedding and the one-month birthday party of your child at the same time?” Jiang Xiaowei asked.
“Hm, that’s a good idea, I’ll take that into consideration.”
Delighted, Huo Mian replied to the comments in her friend circle as she read them out to Qin Chu.
They strolled around in the snow for a very long time…
When Jiang Xiaowei commented on Huo Mian’s WeChat, she was actually having hotpot with Su Yu, Tang Chuan, and Wei Liao.
They all wanted hot pot, but Jiang Xiaowei was too lazy to go anywhere since it was snowing outside.
Therefore, the three men decided to go along with her and eat hot pot at Wei Liao’s.
This place was Wei Liao’s personal mansion. He was going to buy a new one since they were getting married, but Jiang Xiaowei liked it here.
Therefore, they ended up staying here. Two maids, a driver, and a gardener worked at the mansion.
It was standard for a person with Wei Liao’s status; he went to the grocery store and almost bought the entire hot pot aisle.
Then, the four of them sat around the fireplace and enjoyed the hot pot. Things were going great… until Su Yu became depressed upon seeing Huo Mian’s photo upload…
Xiaowei’s phone was the newest iPhone 6S on the market, and the screen was really big.
Su Yu saw a photo of Huo Mian when she placed her phone on the dining table…
He originally thought that it was a photo of just her, so Su Yu grabbed her phone to take a look.
However, he quietly placed her phone down with a depressed expression on his face after seeing that it was a photo of Huo Mian and Qin Chu.
“Ahem… you keep asking for torture.” Tang Chuan coughed.
Since they were already talking about it, Jiang Xiaowei decided to say something, “The truth is, Huo Mian may seem coldblooded and indifferent at times, but she actually cares a lot about the people she loves. She fell in love with Qin Chu when they were young, and although they spent so many years apart and it took a long time for them to get together, they persevered. I think she’s very brave to be able to hold his hand and brave the uncertainties and doubts thrown at them by the outside world. She’s only 24 years old, people can’t expect for her to be as mature as a middle-aged woman, but whoever Huo Mian loves is a lucky man, because she’s your typical stubborn girl… Once she falls in love with him, then it’s for life.”
Jiang Xiaowei’s words made Su Yu even more depressed. He put down his chopsticks and began gulping down beer.
“Haha… Xiaowei, do you want a fish ball?” Wei Liao wanted to change the subject.
However, Jiang Xiaowei suddenly turned around to face Su Yu. “So, aren’t you tired of your single-sided pursuit of her? Even if you know that she’s deeply in love with someone else, you still won’t give up?”
