SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
( Let’s See Who’s More Ruthless (9)
“Mian… are you being serious?” Huo Siqian laughed.
“What do you think?” Huo Mian provoked him back.
After five seconds of staring, Huo Siqian sighed, “Stupid girl… why is keeping you for one night so hard?”
Huo Mian remained silent…
“Alright… stop glaring at me like that. Go ahead and leave. I won’t keep you. Geez.”
Hearing him say this, Huo Mian turned and walked away…
The small blue bottle was still firmly gripped in her hands…
Huo Siqian did not speak a word until Huo Mian walked out of the mansion.
He simply watched as her silhouette faded…
“Boss… are we really letting Miss Huo leave so easily?” Huo Siqian’s men seemed to be disappointed by the result.
Having followed Huo Siqian for so many years, they were too familiar with his feelings toward Huo Mian.
“What else could I do?”
“I think… maybe Miss Huo was bluffing… how dangerous could a small bottle be?”
Huo Siqian’s men thought that he was overly cautious. Huo Mian only had a tiny bottle on her. How could he trust her words so easily?
Huo Siqian’s gaze coldly brushed against the man’s face…
“You know nothing. No one understands Mian as much as I do. She never goes into a situation without being absolutely certain that she’s going to win. That girl is similar to me in one way and one way only, we’re both ruthless. In this world, no one else can compare to our level of ruthlessness…”
With that, Huo Siqian yawned and headed upstairs…
“Nothing to see anymore! It’s bedtime…”
Huo Siqian’s men didn’t dare say more. Their boss was always strange; normal people couldn’t understand him.
Huo Mian left the Huo Mansion with a heavy heart.
Heavy snow blew from the south, signaling the beginning of spring. The snowflakes completely whited out the entire city.
Out of the ordinary, Huo Mian parked her car in front of a mall and went on foot from there, walking aimlessly and endlessly…
After a long time…
She was so cold that she couldn’t feel her fingers anymore…
Suddenly, a black cashmere coat covered her body…
She turned her head and the sight of Su Yu didn’t surprise her, not even a little bit.
Without Qin Chu by her side, the only person who cared about her this much was Su Yu.
Before Huo Mian could say anything, Su Yu said, “Tang Chuan was driving past the Rainbow Bridge. He saw you walking on the road alone… so he told me.”
“Oh…” Huo Mian replied quietly.
“It’s so cold outside… are you trying to freeze to death?”
“No…” Huo Mian looked quite sad.
“Uhm.” Huo Mian nodded.
Not only did her meeting with Huo Siqian give her nothing, it left her feeling even more pressured.
Huo Siqian’s inadvertent mention of doing something to Qin Chu in the holding cell left her feeling like she was going to find her lover dead.
It was a rock that weighed down on her heart so heavily that she could hardly breathe…
“You can’t take it out on your body… idiot.”
Su Yu’s cashmere coat was truly warm, so much so that it instantly comforted Huo Mian’s heart.
“Are you going to keep walking? I’ll keep you company…”
“No, come with me to the Sunset Cliff…”
“Why are you going there?” Su Yu hesitated.
The Sunset Cliff was a very remote cliff. Due to its proximity to the sea, its terrain was incredibly steep. Other than the odd mountaineering enthusiast, barely anyone frequented the area.
“I need to handle some things there.”
Huo Mian said as she got into Su Yu’s Lamborghini immediately…
After sunset, the mountain roads felt especially steep. Because it was night time, even a race car couldn’t handle the climb.
Therefore, the duo opted to walk up the mountain…
With his background as a soldier, Su Yu was as energetic as ever.
Huo Mian, on the other hand, was clearly frailer; her steps quickly began to slow.
“Are you tired? Do you want to rest for a bit?” Su Yu asked.
“No, it’s okay.”
“Why are you always so stubborn? I should just leave you here.” With that, Su Yu got down, picked Huo Mian with his arms, lifted her onto his back, and began walking; she really had no say in the matter…
“Hey, Su Yu!” Huo Mian began to protest loudly.
