(Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (32)

Huo Mian smiled in her sleep when she dreamt of this part…

Soon after, she woke up from her dream…

She realized that it was all a dream, a dream of her distant and beautiful past when high school had just started.

Immediately, her heart sank…

She sat up, no longer wanting to sleep. She picked up her phone and saw that it was already past midnight.

She got up quietly and carefully opened her babies’ diapers.

She changed them into a new set of diapers and saw that the babies weren’t awakened by the action.

Huo Mian took out a cigarette from the drawer and went into the bathroom…

She leaned against the sink and lit the cigarette…

Whenever she was extremely depressed, she would smoke. This had been a habit she had developed many years ago. She wasn’t addicted to smoking; rather, smoking was a form of stress relief for her.

She didn’t know how long she would have to wait until Qin Chu would come back. She didn’t know how long she could keep up with this endless waiting…

She missed Qin Chu dearly, but who could she tell?

She looked up Qin Chu on WeChat… and opened their chat history…

The last message was when they were getting ready for their wedding. She jokingly asked for red pocket money on WeChat.

Qin Chu sent her 1,314,520 Yuan, which was quite a bit of money. (TL Note: 1314520 means a lifetime of “I love you”)

Her heart felt very sweet at that time but now, just looking at the message hurt her deeply.

She didn’t dare to think that Qin Chu was already dead. If that was true, what would she do?

Was she going to live alone for the rest of her life…?

She was extremely depressed so she sent a short message to her husband: Chu, I miss you.

She waited a few seconds but received no reply. Smiling bitterly, she put the cigarette out, brushed her teeth and went back to bed.

Unknown to her was how this short message was able to turn a man’s world upside down.

Qin Chu was always on WeChat. He repeatedly read his past conversations with Huo Mian and looked at her picture to get through his hellish days…

When he received this short message, he wanted to respond.

He knew, however, that he mustn’t…

It wasn’t the right time yet…

Qin Chu stared at his phone… Inside, he was tormented by invisible knives…

He just stared at his phone silently…

It was like the time when he called Huo Mian…

Suddenly, his phone rang…

Qin Chu hesitated but he still picked it up.

It was Lu Yan’s voice.

“Qiao Fei passed the critical period now. Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.”

“Do you need my help for anything? I want to do something for my big sister too… I want to check Huo Siqian up because I have a feeling that he’s connected with Ian…”

“No need.”

“What? Why are you so stiff… I’m just trying to be nice…”

“I don’t need you to be nice…”

Then, Qin Chu hung up…

It was still the same old Qin Chu – he wasn’t interested in anyone other than Huo Mian.

Even if it was Huo Mian’s little sister.

“Damn it… What kind of freaking temper does that guy have… It’s the first time that someone hung up on me… If he wasn’t my brother-in-law and also your lifesaver, I would kill him,” Lu Yan said angrily.

Qiao Fei was now conscious but he was still lying in a hospital bed…

He looked at Lu Yan and commanded, “I want water.”

“Okay, wait a second…”

Lu Yan poured him a glass of water. She then realized that Qiao Fei couldn’t get up so he couldn’t drink through the glass.

“Um… Aren’t there any straws? I’ll go out and ask the nurse for one.”

Just when Lu Yan was about to go out, Qiao Fei grabbed onto her hand.

She looked back and asked, “What is it?”
