(Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (23)

No one spoke on the other side of the line…

For some strange reason, Huo Mian felt a strong feeling budding up in her mind…

“Qin Chu… Is that you?” Huo Mian couldn’t suppress the excitement in her voice.

There was still no response.

Huo Mian never even considered that it might be some psycho just calling to mess around, nor did she think that it was some child’s prank.

She had the feeling that the person on the other side of the line was the owner of the voice she wanted to hear from…

“Qin Chu… If it is you, can you please say something? Even if you aren’t coming back now… please just let me know that you are still alive…” Huo Mian’s voice was shaking.

After three seconds…

The call ended.

“Beep, beep, beep…”

Huo Mian hastily grabbed her phone, trying to call back the numbers that showed up.

“—Sorry, the number you have called does not exist. Please check the number and dial again.”

Huo Mian’s heart sank when she heard those words…

Why would it be a nonexistent number? Why didn’t that person say anything? Wasn’t it that number that had just tried calling her?

She was rather rattled. She wanted to talk to someone but then thought people might think she was crazy and made up the story because she missed Qin Chu so much.

She knew very clearly though, that this was no hallucination…

– In Seattle, America –

Qin Chu hung up the phone…

He let out a long sigh. Then, he got up slowly…

Just now, he almost said something to Huo Mian.

However, why would it matter if he said something? The problems haven’t been solved yet…

He still needed to undergo one last leg restorative surgery. He still didn’t know if he would be disabled forever or if he could luckily recover.

He didn’t want people to look at his wife and daughters with discriminatory looks when they walked on the streets together.

He wouldn’t allow people to say, “Hey, your husband’s crippled…”

“Hey, your dad’s crippled…”

Qin Chu was a proud person and this was something he would not tolerate.

It was dark…

Qin Chu held a picture that he cherished…

Huo Mian was wearing a pink maternity dress, one arm holding Pudding and the other arm, Little Bean.

She looked down at them and smiled gently…

At that moment, the world seemed to soften because of her soft smile…

Qin Chu held onto the picture firmly… His fingers slightly shaking.

“Mian… I’m sorry…”

A few days later, Su Yu cleared his schedule so he could go shopping with Huo Mian.

They drove to the supermarket and bought a bunch of decorations for the twins’ one month birthday. They bought balloons, a Christmas tree…

They were both tired but still continued with enthusiasm…

Su Yu bought whatever he saw… Huo Mian however, maintained her composure.

Otherwise, they would be very compulsive shoppers.

It was almost noon. Huo Mian looked at her watch and said, “It’s already 12. I’m hungry, let’s go and eat.”

“Sure… What do you want to eat?”

“Anything’s fine. As long as we fill ourselves, I’m good. I’m just really tired…” Huo Mian smiled.

“What about Korean barbeque?”

“Sure. However, you have to promise me something first.” Huo Mian acted very mysteriously.

“What is it?” Su Yu was confused.

“You have to let me pay for it, alright?” Huo Mian blinked and smiled.

“Sure… It’s rare for Doctor Huo to treat me to lunch. I shall let her.”

The two couldn’t help but start laughing…

After arranging for the things they bought to be delivered back to the mansion, Huo Mian and Su Yu drove to a nearby high-end Korean barbeque restaurant.

There would always be a long line outside this restaurant.

The décor was rather nice and the flooring used Korean tatami.

The beef there was top-grade and fresh. Many people would come and try because of the restaurant’s good reputation.

The minimum for a two-person meal would 1,000 Yuan.

Even when it was so expensive, it was rather amazing to see how so many people would still line up for it…

When Huo Mian saw so many people lining up, she second-guessed her decision. “There are so many people here. Let’s go… I’d be famished by the time we get in.”

“It’s okay, wait here for a second.” Su Yu walked over and began talking to a waiter.
