( Never Seen Him This Gentle (6)

“I want you to move in with us,” Mrs. Su said as she looked at Huo Mian in a gentle manner.

“Auntie… I can’t… I already owe too much to the Su Family… I know if Su Yu didn’t beg Grandpa Su to help me… I’d probably be…” Zhu Lingling loved gossip so she had dug up the story of how Su Yu threatened his grandfather to help her and told her all the details of the story.

Huo Mian had felt really bad when she heard the story but never did she question Su Yu about it.

After all… you couldn’t really get yourself to ask for details in such situations. All she could do was say “thank you”.

She told herself she would remember this favor and help Su Yu when she could in the future; she was willing to climb mountains and cross oceans for him.

After all, no other favor in the world was greater and more profound than saving one’s life.

But people nowadays were too quick to accept favors and simultaneously, less grateful.

“You don’t need to put it that way… You’re one of Yu’s best friends. He wouldn’t leave you stranded when your life is in danger… It might seem like a simple task but to tell you the truth, my father-in-law went through a lot of trouble to bail you out from prison and get you into the Army Hospital… The army isn’t as simplistic as people from the outside think it is. The higher your rank is, the more careful you need to be… Otherwise, you might drag your family into danger with you… Don’t worry. I’m not telling you this because I want something from you. You don’t need to think too much into it. I just want you to know it was worth it for us to save you… also… I personally don’t think you’d kill anyone… I don’t exactly know what is going on and I don’t intend to poke into it… I know you have your reasons… But now that you’re safe and sound, I want things to stay that way for you…”

“Mrs. Su… I can’t go to your house… I…” Huo Mian seemed to be rushing into declining the offer.

Mrs. Su gently held onto Huo Mian’s hand and said in a deep and worrying tone, “Mian, you don’t need to rush to a decision. Can you listen to me first?”

“Okay…” Huo Mian nodded.

“Right now, you’re two months pregnant… You’re having twins, so it’s going to be even harder than normal pregnancies… It’s going to be tough… Your family can’t be with you right now due to special circumstances and you’re always at the hospital… I’m only asking you to move in with us because there’s no other way… I also heard from Yu that the hospital isn’t as safe and someone seems to be trying to hurt you.” Mrs. Su did not know of the old scores between Huo Siqian and Huo Mian but she knew from Su Yu that someone was indeed trying to harm Huo Mian.

Huo Mian didn’t respond and continued to listen attentively.

“My father-in-law went to visit Mayor Song the other day and they chatted for a long time. You probably know better than I do about Mayor Song, the father of the victim. He only had one daughter and after she passed away, he was devastated… You coming out in one piece has really gotten on his nerves. Right after you came out, Mayor Song immediately questioned my father-in-law about the details… From Mayor Song’s tone, my father-in-law was able to tell that he wouldn’t let you off so easily… He hates your guts. After all, you are the person suspected of murdering his daughter.”

Huo Mian nodded. She was able to follow and agree with Mrs. Su’s logic.

“Mayor Song is the highest-ranking official in the city… You can’t underestimate his powers… There are just too many people in the Army Hospital… We won’t be able to ensure that we’re covered everything… If he really did send someone for you, then he could create some sort of accident, like pushing you down the stairs. You could lose your baby that way, and it’d be too late when you come to regret it then. That’s not even the worst-case scenario… That’s why I want you to think about the babies… You should be more selfish… Move in with us… By moving in with us, you would be under the protection of the Su Family and our house is the safest place to be… Because of my father-in-law, a team of soldiers is constantly guarding our estate. The defense is impeccable… Top class assassins won’t even be able to get in, so you won’t need to worry about those working for Mayor Song… all you have to do is wait until you give birth. When the babies are born, the situation would probably be a bit less intense, and you could move out then… Mayor Song is redheaded now and Yu really is scared that his followers will hurt you… We know it’s not the perfect option for you, but it’s because we’re trying to protect you. That’s why we came up with such a plan.”
