(Persisting in Evil Brings about Self-Destruction (4)

Yang Meirong was obviously a bit shy as she smiled but didn’t say anything…

Huo Mian grabbed the giant red pocket from Qin Chu and opened it up. After a quick count, Huo Mian exclaimed, “Woah… there’s more than 10,000 in here!”

“There’s 20,000 yuan in there,” Yang Meirong said with a smile on her face before continuing, “Qin Chu, take it. I know you’re rich, but that’s your money. I’ve been saving up, and this is the money that Mian has given me over the years, or else I wouldn’t even have so much. I know this money is a drop in the ocean for you, but still, I wanted you to have it. Just don’t think the amount is too little.”

“I won’t, thanks, Mom.” Qin Chu felt touched; it was so kind of Huo Mian’s mother to give him red pocket money.

No amount was too little for him, he would be satisfied even if Yang Meirong were to give him 2,000 instead of 20,000 today.

“Mom… you’re so rich, you’ve never even given me so much money…” Huo Mian hugged her mother and complained coyishly, and Qin Chu said, “I’ll ask my mom to give you red pocket money next time too.”

“No, no, I’m happy as long as your mom doesn’t pick on me…” Huo Mian immediately waved her hands, and Yang Meirong scolded her daughter, “Don’t talk like that! Oh, right, my pork hock soup is still cooking in the kitchen…”

Then, she ran towards the kitchen, while Huo Mian, in a great mood, followed her mother. “Mom, let me help you!”

Suddenly, all that was left in the living room was Qin Chu and Yang Xiuping…

Qin Chu took out his phone; upon opening his mailbox, he began reading the emails that company employees sent him.

Yang Xiuping was wearing an emerald-colored loungewear piece that Yang Meirong had bought her at the mall; she smoothed out the stray hairs by her ears and said gently, “Brother-in-Law, have some fruit.”

“No thanks,” Qin Chu replied without looking up.

“Brother-in-law… I heard that you own the biggest corporation in the city. I bet your office building is really tall, isn’t it! When Auntie told me about you, I knew you were a powerful man… or else you wouldn’t be able to manage such a big company. Oh, right, is your company hiring? I want to work there, I don’t want to go back to my village and do farm work for the rest of my life. It’s really tiring, and the crops aren’t growing well. I like the city; the food is delicious, and the clothes are fancy. I really like it here and really want to stay here…”

Before Qin Chu could say anything, Yang Xiuping moved closer to him and continued blabbering, “Brother-in-Law, I can do a lot of things. I can cook, and I can clean the floors. Maybe… I could work as a cleaner for your office? You don’t have to give me a lot of money, just 1,000 yuan a month, what do you think?”

Qin Chu was annoyed by Yang Xiuping’s inability to take his silence as a hint. With a frown on his face, he looked up and was just about to say something when Huo Mian walked out of the kitchen.

“What were you guys talking about?” Huo Mian smiled as she sat down between Qin Chu and Yang Xiuping, forcing the latter to move back…

“Oh… I was asking my brother-in-law if he had any job opportunities for me. I want to go work at his company, since doing nothing every day is really boring. Plus, I can’t stay here and keep spending my Auntie’s money, right? I’d be really embarrassed. Auntie has treated me very well and bought me a lot of things. I’m old enough to make money by myself, and don’t want to be a freeloader,” Yang Xiuping ranted, thinking that she made valid points.

Huo Mian listened to her drone on and on while she picked up a grape from the fruit platter and nibbled at it.

After finishing the grape, she wiped her hands and said quietly, “Oh, that’s what you were talking about. I actually already found a job for you.”

“Really? What kind of job?” Yang Xiuping was confused; why didn’t her cousin say anything earlier?
