 (You Guys Won’t Be Able to Kill Me (1)

Huo Mian: “It’s true, we’re almost bankrupt.”

Zhu Lingling: “Are you serious? Don’t kid me.”

Jiang Xiaowei: “She’s not kidding, the situation is dire right now. How much debt are you guys in right now?”

Huo Mian: “I’m not sure yet. Our debt was at 800 million yuan at the end of the day today, so it wasn’t too bad. I’m not sure what’s going to happen tomorrow though.”

She felt like she was riding a roller coaster, constantly going up and down – overnight, GK went from a company that was worth tens of billions to one that was in debt.

Huo Mian finally understood how a pair of brothers in America went from billionaires to beggars during the 2008 depression.

Yes, they were rich, but that meant they bore more risk than ordinary people.

Zhu Lingling: “How is 800 million yuan ‘not too bad’? You’re killing me here.”

Jiang Xiaowei: “Don’t panic, Mian. I talked to Wei Liao, so just let us know if you need money. He has about 600 million yuan in liquid funds.”

Huo Mian: “We’re fine at the moment, I’ll tell you when I need your help. Thanks, Xiaowei.”

Jiang Xiaowei: “You don’t need to be so polite with me. Plus, I know this is just temporary, with Qin Chu’s capabilities he’ll definitely be able to recover from this crisis.”

Huo Mian: “Yeah, I trust him too.”

Zhu Lingling: “Huo Mian, I’m really not of that much help, but I can treat you to food. What do you guys feel like eating?”

Huo Mian: “I really don’t have the time recently, I’ll have to take a raincheck on that offer.”

Jiang Xiaowei: “Mian… with what’s going on, will you guys still be able to get married on the 28th?”

After three seconds of silence, Huo Mian replied: “I’m not sure yet, I need to talk it through with Qin Chu first.”

Jiang Xiaowei: “Okay, let us know if you have any updates.”

Huo Mian: “I will.”

After she closed WeChat, she decided not to log into Weibo anymore, since the water army already sank her page with curses. She couldn’t bear reading them all, no matter how strong she was.

Her mom didn’t know much about the company, so she had no idea what was going on. Zhixin, on the other hand, called her several times to make sure she was alright. He heard about GK’s crisis from all the way in New Zealand.

Huo Mian didn’t want Zhixin to worry, so she told him that everything was fine.

However, she couldn’t help but sigh when she was alone.

After taking a hot bath, Huo Mian walked into the bedroom in her nightgown. She leaned on her bed and let her mind run wild… so wild that she didn’t even notice Qin Chu walking in.

He walked up to her and grazed the tip of her nose lovingly. “What are you thinking about so intently?”

“Honey… should we push back the wedding?”

“Why?” Qin Chu got under the covers and placed his arm around Huo Mian’s shoulder.

“Too many things have happened, you don’t have time to do anything else. Plus, it doesn’t seem appropriate to hold a wedding at a time l like this… maybe we should wait until this crisis is averted.”

“I feel like the wedding might actually help us avert the crisis. Don’t worry, I can handle it. We’ll get married on the 28th.”

There were 9 days left until their wedding; could it be successfully held? Why did Huo Mian feel such unease?

– The next morning –

Qin Chu and Huo Mian left home together. He went to the office while she continued preparing for the wedding.

Qin Chu was going to go with her, but GK was still in a mess so he had no time. Huo Mian ended up shopping around some luxury shopping mall but didn’t feel like buying anything.

Suddenly, her phone rang – Su Yu was calling her.


“Where are you?”

“Um… at the outlet by Rainbow Street.”

“Give me ten minutes, I’ll be right there.”

Then, Su Yu hung up. Ten minutes later, he appeared outside the shopping mall. Glancing around, Su Yu said: “Let’s go somewhere else, there are too many people here.”

“Let’s go into the coffee shop over there.” Huo Mian and Zhu Lingling often shopped here, so she knew her way around.


Then, they walked into the coffee shop together…

“Did you need to talk to me about something?” Huo Mian knew Su Yu wouldn’t ask to see her for no reason.

Su Yu didn’t reply; instead, he took a cheque out of his wallet and pushed it towards Huo Mian, who was shocked by the number of zeros she saw…
