SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Su Family’s Kindness to Me Weighs Like a Mountain (7)
“I’m fine, sometimes I get morning sickness, but I know it’s normal during the first trimester.”
“But you need to be careful, if you feel like something’s wrong, you need to go to the hospital… Having twins is hard.”
“Mom, I’m a doctor. Plus, I interned at in the OB/GYN department for so long and saw countless cases, don’t worry about me.”
“How can I not be… After all, we’re not with you… It’s also inconvenient for you to live at your friend’s place.”
“No, it’s fine. My friend’s family is really nice to me too.”
“When is Qin Chu going back?” Yang Meirong asked.
“He… should be back soon, right after he finishes over there,” Huo Mian lied, feeling guilty.
“Okay then… I know how to dial now, I’ll make sure to video call you more often in your future. Remember to give me updates, or I’ll worry!”
“I will.” Huo Mian nodded; after hanging up, she felt her heart well up with warmth. Although she knew Yang Meirong was not her birth mother, she always treated her like she was.
Yang Meirong used to hold misunderstandings towards the Qin Family and blamed them for Uncle Jing’s death. But, after everything that had happened, she accepted Huo Mian and Qin Chu.
She was glad to have Yang Meirong as her mother and Zhixin as her little brother.
“Miss Huo, it’s time for breakfast.” Auntie Yu knocked on the door and came in.
“Okay, I’ll be right there.”
After getting ready, Huo Mian walked out of her room door to see Auntie Yu still waiting for her. Upon seeing Huo Mian come out, the latter immediately walked up and held her, “Be careful going downstairs, watch the stairs.”
“Thanks, Auntie Yu.”
“Don’t mention it… I’ve worked for the Su Family for decades, and I watched the young master grow up. You’re his friend, so we’re all going to treat you like you’re a part of the family. Madam Su said that you’re smart and sensible, people like you as soon as they see you.”
“Mrs. Su speaks too highly of me…” Huo Mian smiled.
Auntie Yu liked Huo Mian and felt bad for this young woman. She heard about how Huo Mian’s husband got into an accident, and there were people out there who wanted to harm her and her unborn twins.
Although life was hard, she still put on a strong exterior and smiled in the face of everything that happened.
After breakfast, while Huo Mian was taking a stroll in the Su Estate’s giant garden, she took out her phone and dialed a number.
“Rick, are you busy?”
“No, go ahead.”
“Do you have news on Qin Chu?”
After a few seconds of silence, Rick replied, “Not yet.”
“Then… did you get in touch with anyone else? My in-laws, Uncle Qin and Ning?”
“Not yet… my brother’s still investigating,” Rick said with an apologetic tone.
“Oh, okay then… tell me immediately once you hear something.”
“Huo Mian, wait.”
Huo Mian was just about to hang up when Rick stopped her, prompting her to put the phone back onto her ears, “Yeah, Rick?”
“Huo Mian, I know about your real family… Qin Chu told me.”
Before Rick could say anything else, Huo Mian cut him off, “Thank you… but I want to hear everything from Qin Chu.”
Upon hearing what she said, Rick’s heart was filled with grief; he didn’t have the courage to ask Huo Mian what she would do if Qin Chu was really dead, because he knew it was torture and agony for her to even think that possibility.

“Have you heard anything?”
Upon hearing this, Huo Siqian’s expression immediately darkened.
“Sir, what if Qin Chu’s really dead? What if his body sank to the bottom of the ocean or was eaten by sharks? After all, that area of the pacific ocean is really deep and hard to search.”
“I don’t believe he’s dead, keep searching.” Ever since Qin Chu’s plane crashed and he went missing, Huo Siqian had had a bad feeling. He felt like Qin Chu wasn’t dead and had instead hidden away somewhere he couldn’t find.
In the past, Huo Siqian always operated in the dark, while his enemies were in broad daylight. Now that the situation was reversed, he felt extremely annoyed.
“Do you have any news on Lu Yan?” Huo Siqian asked.
