SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
( Desperation Leads to Inspiration (8)
“I’m sorry, I really don’t know.”
“Oh…” Huo Mian was a little disappointed.
She really wanted to find useful information so that she could clear Qin Chu’s name at the second trial and turn the situation around.
However, the reality was harsh.
“Huo Siqian is suspicious of everyone, he never let me touch his phone or ask about his day. So, I really don’t know where he was or what he did the day the murder happened.”
“It’s fine, I was just asking.”
“I think you can ask Mo Xue’er.”
“She won’t tell me the truth, she’ll give her life helping Huo Siqian.”
“I don’t know what to do then…” Wang Shasha shook her head.
After Wang Shasha left, Huo Mian drove back to Sky Blessing Court.
She video chatted with her mom in New Zealand for a while before driving to the nearest supermarket for some groceries.
Then, she made a group chat on WeChat with her friends.
In it, Huo Mian wrote, “Is everyone busy?”
Zhu Lingling wrote, “Another group chat?”
Huo Mian replied, “This one has more people in it.”
Jiang Xiaowei wrote, “President Huo? What’s going on?”
Huo Mian replied, “Come have dinner at my place tonight, I’m cooking.”
Jiang Xiaowei replied, “What good day is it today?”
Huo Mian replied, “A good day for food?”
Gao Ran asked, “What food?”
“A Manchu Han Imperial feast,” Huo Mian answered.
Gao Ran said, “I’ll be there right away.”
Zhu Lingling wrote, “Damn, you pig.”
Huo Mian said, “Xiaowei, bring Wei Liao too.”
Jiang Xiaowei: “Will do.”
Su Yu said: “Liao is at my place.”
Huo Mian answered, “Great, you guys can come together. If Young Master Tang is free, bring him too. We’ll eat in an hour.”
Su Yu answered, “Yep, do we need to bring anything?”
Huo Mian said, “Just bring yourself.”
Su Yu replied, “Okay, see you in a bit.”
Ni Yang wrote, “Sis, what’s going on?”
Chen Jie, “What’s going on, Chief?”
Huo Mian replied, “Nothing, I just wanted to treat you guys to food to thank you guys. You’ve been working so hard to help me, and it’s only natural for me to make dinner with you guys. Haha, come as early as you can.”
Ni Yang answered, “Yep, I’ll be there soon.”
Huo Mian’s invitation was well-received by all the invitees.
– An hour later –
Many expensive cars gathered outside the doors of Sky Blessing Court.
A lamborghini, a Mercedes Benz, a Range Rover…
Su Yu drove Wei Liao here.
Tang Chuan drove his own Porsche Cayenne.
Jiang Xiaowei was driven here by the Wei Family’s private chauffeur.
Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling arrived in their Jaguar.
Ni Yang drove Chen Jie in a black Range Rover.
There were nine people in total, including Huo Mian.
Huo Mian spent an hour to make four stir-fried dishes, stewed chicken, and a soup. She also bought four pre-made dishes to make a total of ten dishes.
Everybody gathered around the dining table and talked.
The atmosphere was great.
With a flower-pattern apron around her waist, Huo Mian approached them, and Su Yu burst out laughing.
“What are you laughing about?”
Huo Mian flicked Su Yu’s forehead.
“This getup suits you, idiot,” Su Yu laughed.
“No truth can come out of a dog’s mouth.”
Tang Chuan laughed, “Dr. Huo, Yu is on his period. Don’t sink to his level.”
Su Yu turned around punched Tang Chuan. “Screw you.”
“Mian, you can stop hustling. Sit,” Jiang Xiaowei said as she dragged Huo Mian onto a chair.
Looking at the feast, Wei Liao’s face was filled with disbelief.
“You made all of this?”
“Mhm, I bought some of it, I didn’t have enough time.”
“You stewed this? Sis, it smells so good,” Ni Yang chuckled.
“If you think it smells good, eat more. Let’s start, everyone.”
“Girl, you seem a little off today.”
Zhu Lingling suddenly stared at Huo Mian’s face and slowly said.
“No, I’m fine…” Huo Mian smiled.
“Mian, by bringing everyone here, did you want to discuss how to break Qin Chu out?” Jiang Xiaowei asked…
“Actually, I already thought of a way.”
Huo Mian slowly said, and her head was lowered the whole time.
“What way?” Gao Ran anxiously asked.
