(The Whole World is Looking for Huo Mian (4)

“Silence?” Huo Siqian raised his brows and continued, “Then I take it that you want rice.”

Then he went out to get busy.

He got busy with cutting wood, gathering fruits, cooking, and washing clothes for Huo Mian.

In the days when they were here, Huo Mian did nothing but gett angry, curse, and lose her temper.

In contrast, Huo Siqian had served her like a maid, which made her very uncomfortable.

When Huo Siqian wasn’t around, Huo Mian wandered on the island and began to think about how to leave it.

Huo Siqian didn’t even have a cellphone because the island blocked all electronic signals.

He must have instructed his men how often they should deliver provisions, and when his men arrived, he would tell them what to deliver for the next time.

They were totally isolated from the world; other than her and Huo Siqian, not a single soul could be seen here.

Would she spend the rest of her life here?

Huo Mian would lose her patience if the situation continued.

She would jump into the ocean with the baby in her belly.

It would be a better fate than being imprisoned as pets; she would never let her child live like this.

She would never let her child be born as a prisoner like her and spend his entire life as a prisoner.

Huo Mian always thought she had a good brain. So, she had been trying to figure out a way to leave the island.

She even drew a huge SOS on the beach, hoping some plane or passing ship would see it and rescue her.

SOS was the international code signal for help. Anyone, no matter which country they came from, would know someone was trapped here if they saw the signal.

At first, Huo Mian was full of hope.

Huo Siqian looked as if he didn’t notice what she was doing and let her wander around on the island.

But Huo Mian became hopeless after four days because she realized the island was so small that almost no ships passed it; the occasional planes passing it flew at least ten thousand meters above them.

No one would see her signal, which meant her plan of asking for help died before it could achieve anything.

It gave Huo Mian a big blow, and she was sulky for days.

In the evening, Huo Siqian came in with a platter as usual and placed it gently on the desk before Huo Mian.

Ever since she came here, Huo Mian had never sat down and had a meal with him on one table.

But Huo Siqian seemed to be used to the arrangement.

“Mian, I heard that pregnant women must be in a good mood. It’s no good to be so melancholic all day long.”

“It’s all because of you! Now you even dare to lecture me?” Huo Mian was resentful.

She felt she had become a person full of resentment and meanness; she would lose temper any moment.

The calm and wits that she possessed when she worked at South Side had completely disappeared in the face of this crisis.

“If you’re angry at me, just hit me and rail on me to vent your anger.” Huo Siqian smiled.

“I want to kill you! Can I do it?” Huo Mian was furious.

“You can. Anytime… But I’m the only other living person on the island. If you kill me, you’d be alone. Who would take care of you?”

“Do I need you to take care of me? Ridiculous…” Huo Mian sneered.

“We’ve been here for a long time, but you’ve never smiled. I want to see you smile again.”

“I’ll never smile at someone like you! Not for the rest of my life! Wake up from your dreams!” Huo Mian glared at Huo Siqian with a vicious look on her face.

“Mian, check this out.” Huo Siqian handed her a Kraft paper bag.
