( Darkness Dissipates; The King Returns (5)

“You’re moving out?” Su Yu looked at Huo Mian, his tone as gentle as it always was when he was talking to her.

“Mhm.” Huo Mian nodded.

“Can I… give you a ride?”

“Yu!” Mrs. Su exclaimed, dumbfounded by the fact that her son stood on Huo Mian’s side.

“Mom… let her go, we’ve talked about this already. It’s not like she can live her for the rest of her life…” Su Yu said, smiling bitterly. Then, he picked up Huo Mian’s luggage and proceeded to walk out the front door.

“Hey, what am I supposed to tell your Grandpa?” Mrs. Su asked, feeling bad.

Grandpa Su loved Mian and the twins; ever since she had them, he came home more often than he used to, and he picked up the twins as soon as he took off his shoes.

Grandpa Su spoiled the twins like they were his own granddaughters…

“I’ll talk to Grandpa,” Su Yu replied.

“Mrs. Su, don’t be sad, I’ll be back to see you guys. I’m just moving half an hour away…” Huo Mian consoled Mrs. Su.

“The maids and I are going with you then, there’s too much stuff for you to organize.”

In the end, Huo Mian had no choice but to move back to South Hill Manor, followed by Mrs. Su, a group of maids, and a dozen cars.

It had been a year since Huo Mian had been back, and South Hill Manor looked exactly the same. On her way home, Huo Mian didn’t utter a single word and quietly stared outside the window…

Uncle Li was beyond surprised to see Huo Mian. He exclaimed, his voice shaking, “Young Madam, you’re back!”

Huo Mian nodded with a smile.

“Yeah, I brought a pair of twins with me as well,” Huo Mian said, pointing at the kids who were sleeping in the arms of two maids.

“Twins?” Uncle Li exclaimed, extremely emotional.

So many things have happened over the past year; ever since Huo Mian and Qin Chu left, South Hill Manor had been without owners for an entire year.

The good news was, Huo Mian called Uncle Li beforehand, telling him that the workers’ salaries will be paid as usual.

As soon as the owner moved back, South Hill Manor bubbled with life.

It took them a while to unpack and organize…

Then, Huo Mian asked the kitchen to prepare a hearty dinner for everyone.

Before leaving, Su Yu pulled Huo Mian off to the side. “What’s your plan?”

“I asked the U.S. headquarters to transfer me the management rights to GK, I will start work next week.”

“That’s so soon.”

“Mhm, I can’t stay at home forever, I feel so useless. Although business isn’t my field of expertise, my father-in-law spent his entire life on GK. I have to protect it to the best of my abilities…”

“Sounds good, but I have one request.”

“What request?” Huo Mian froze slightly.

“Let An be your assistant so he can protect you.”

“Um, it’s okay, I have bodyguards…”

“Don’t refuse, alright? I’ve made arrangements for bodyguards as well, think of it as a kind gesture. Anyways, you still need to be careful when going about town…”

In the end, Huo Mian couldn’t bring herself to refuse Su Yu’s gesture. “Okay then, thank you.”

“Mhm, I’m going to leave now. Call me if you need me.”

“I will.”

Su Yu left South Hill Manor feeling depressed; he really didn’t want her to move out but understood how she felt. Therefore, he decided to suck up his own pain to fulfill her wish.

“My silly son, you must be heartbroken…” Mrs. Su said.

“I’m happy as long as she’s happy…” Su Yu replied quietly.

Three years flew by in the blink of an eye…

“Mommy, Qin Zhaozhao stole my bunny! Come see!” A cute baby voice sounded from downstairs.

Huo Mian walked down the stairs, smiling at one of the twins, her expression filled with adoration.

“Pudding, are you bullying your little sister again?”
