( Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (22)

“What are your thoughts on the babies’ one-month birthday party?”

“Um… I haven’t thought about it yet, don’t we still have ten days left?” Huo Mian asked in surprise.

“Yeah, but time flies… Grandpa wants to hold a big celebration since you’ve just been vindicated from murder, but we don’t know if you would prefer lowkey or not…”

“I don’t want that many people there… You know me, I don’t socialize that much so I only have a few good friends. I thought we could just gather some close friends and family and have dinner together.”

“Sounds good, whatever you say.” Su Yu nodded.

“Su Yu… I’ve thought about this for a while and I think I’ll move out when the twins are one month old.”

“Why?” Su Yu looked shocked.

“I’m no longer in a precarious situation… I’m not a murderer anymore and there’s nothing people can say or do to harm me… South Hill Manor is still empty and I quite like it there. I want to go home.”

“Aren’t you afraid that Huo Siqian might harm you and your babies? He’s quite a cunning man.”

“I’m not scared of him… I can’t live my life trying to avoid him… I think I’ll face him directly…”

“Are you sure?”

“Yes… I’ve caused you and your family so much trouble while I was pregnant.”

“You’ve caused no trouble at all. My family loves you.”

Su Yu couldn’t hide his feelings for her when he said those words.

“I know, but I can’t just stay here forever. It’s not that convenient… I was pregnant before and scared that my babies would be in danger. Now that they’re born and my mom’s back… It’s time that I move out.”

Su Yu had thousands of reasons why he didn’t want Huo Mian to move out.

However, he didn’t want to make things difficult for her, so after a few seconds of silence, he looked up and said, “Okay. I respect your decision.”

When Huo Mian heard Su Yu’s response, she smiled.

“Please talk to Grandpa Su and the others for me. I don’t want them to feel bad.”

“Okay… But can we still host the one month birthday here? Grandpa has been planning it for quite some time now. He even postponed some meetings because he wants to attend the twins’ one month birthday.”

“Sure. We can go out and do some shopping these days so we can start decorating.”

“No, you haven’t rested enough,” Su Yu immediately rejected.

“It’s okay. I’ll just wear more clothes and be careful not to catch a cold…”

Huo Mian then gave a soft smile.

Su Yu had no defense mechanism against Huo Mian’s smile. No matter what she requested, even if he knew she was wrong, he would still agree.

After talking to Huo Mian, Su Yu was ready to go back to his own house to sleep.

Huo Mian walked him out to the parking lot.

“It’s late and the roads are slippery. Drive safe.”

“Of course.” Su Yu felt very warm inside.

It felt like Huo Mian was his wife and she was worried about his safety.

“Su Yu…”


“You’re not young anymore. If you can, try to find a girlfriend… Don’t stay single…”

Su Yu’s heart immediately froze and split in half when he heard Huo Mian’s words.

“Do you want me to find a girlfriend?” Su Yu looked at Huo Mian with disappointment in his eyes.

“Do you want to know the truth?”

“Yes…” Su Yu looked at Huo Mian.

“I really want you to find a girlfriend… You’re the only son in the Su Family. Mrs. Su and Mr. Su, and even Grandpa Su want you to have your own family as soon as possible because they want to see you have a child of your own… We can’t just live for ourselves all the time. We sometimes have to take into account the feelings of our families.”

“Thank you for your honesty. I will think about it.” Su Yu was a bit mad.

He looked down and started the car engine…

Without waiting for Huo Mian to say goodbye, he drove his Lamborghini down the road and into the darkness…

Huo Mian knew he was upset.

Sometimes, the truth was rather bleak and painful to hear, but it was also necessary.

She couldn’t let Su Yu live in the dream he fabricated forever. To allow him to do so would truly be cruel.

Just then, Huo Mian’s phone rang.

She looked at the caller ID and it was a bunch of random numbers. She couldn’t tell where it was coming from.

She hesitated for a bit but still picked up the phone…


There was no response from the other side of the line but Huo Mian could hear someone breathing, even though the sound was rather weak.

“Sorry, but who are you looking for?” Huo Mian asked again.
