( Huo Siqian, What Are You Trying to Do? (10)

“Oh, it’s okay, Dad’s just tired…” Huo Mian forced a smile.

“Your dad spent his life worrying. Chu already told him to take care of himself, but he keeps reading the newspapers. I don’t know what he read, but he seemed really depressed today. I wanted to lighten up his mood by taking a stroll with him in the garden, but he fainted… It really scared me to death.” Mrs. Qin didn’t pay attention to the news, so she had no idea what GK was going through right now.

“Mom, take care of Dad. Qin Chu and I will take care of the rest.”

“Mhm, thank you for running over…”

“Don’t say that, Mom, we’re family.”

Huo Mian left after comforting her mother-in-law. On her way to the company, she felt miserable – how was she supposed to tell Qin Chu what Dr. Liu told her?

He was so close to his father and would be more heartbroken than she was if he found out.

Huo Mian was heartbroken because knew how much pressure Qin Chu’s endured for the company, and she didn’t want him to carry everything on his shoulders.

However, she couldn’t withhold this information from him, since her father-in-law was in mortal danger.

“Young Madam… you’re here.”

“Mhm, where is he?”

“In the conference room.”

“Still? How long has he been in there?”

“Three hours and twenty-five minutes…” Yang replied.

“Okay then, I’ll wait in his office.”

Yang poured Huo Mian a glass of warm milk before leaving.

30 minutes later, Qin Chu walked into his office. “Honey…”

His mood immediately lightened upon seeing Huo Mian sitting on the couch as if all the clouds hovering above his head were instantly blown away.

“Honey… how was the meeting? Did you think of any countermeasures?”

“We activated the company’s emergency funds, but I don’t know how long we can hold on for… I’ve also ordered all the departments to devise new strategies. The housing prices are low enough, so we’re waiting for the stocks to come back up… Hopefully, things will pick up soon, or else the company’s going to go under.”

Qin Chu didn’t hide anything from Huo Mian, and as smart as she was, she already had an idea of what was going on.

“You don’t look well… what happened?”

“Honey… Dad fainted this morning, he’s… not doing well,” Huo Mian bit down on her lips before telling him this.

Qin Chu, however, didn’t seem too surprised. He slowly asked, “I saw that Mom called me just now… What did Dr. Liu say?”

“Basically, what you predicted. He only has two options, conservative treatment or surgery… I don’t think dad should undergo conservative treatment with his conditions, but a craniotomy is also too risky.”

“I got it.” Qin Chu nodded.

“Honey… what can I do for you?” Huo Mian stood up and stared heartbreakingly at Qin Chu’s exhausted expression.

“You can eat and sleep well…” Qin Chu held her face in his hands and gently kissed her eyelashes.

“Honey… everything will get better, we’ll face everything together.”

Huo Mian placed her arms around Qin Chu’s waist and thought of the words he wrote on their wedding invitation – together through thick and thin.

“I’m fine, don’t worry about me… Do you mind sitting on the couch for a while? I need to go through the documents.”

Then, Qin Chu sat down before his desk and went back to work, while Huo Mian waited quietly by his side.

She didn’t care about GK and Qin Chu’s future, as long as they were together.

The loss in sales and dip in the stock market left GK on the verge of collapse.

That evening, some renowned financial analyst uploaded an article saying how GK was about to go bankrupt. Then, various famous individuals shared his article, which was later blown out of proportion by media outlets.

After finishing dinner and 8 PM, Qin Chu went into the study for a video conference.

Zhu Lingling sent Huo Mian a WeChat message in their group, “Mian, what’s going on? Why is everyone saying that you guys are going bankrupt?”
