(There“s Only You and Me Here (2)

“If possible, I hope my dream will continue forever and never end,” Huo Siqian said, carrying a hint of pleading.

“Don’t live in your dream because it will never come true. Qin Chu will find me.”

“Mian, don’t be silly. Qin Chu is only a mortal man. I’ve planned our escape here for years and even an army can’t find you, not to mention Qin Chu. You like him and think that he is a god. You just accused me of self-deception; what do you think you’re doing now?” Huo Siqian smiled.

“I’m different from you. Qin Chu will come for me; I’m sure of it,” Huo Mian said with conviction.

Yes, she trusted Qin Chu more than she trusted herself.

She believed so long as Qin Chu was alive, he would find her, no matter where she was.

“Okay, okay. Qin Chu will come for you. Then let’s have supper first, okay?” Huo Siqian humored her.

“I’m not hungry.”

“You’re not hungry, but the baby is. He’s grown so big now.” Huo Siqian glanced at the small bump in her belly.

Huo Mian knew she shouldn’t be willful and refuse to eat just because of her anger; after all, her baby would suffer from it.

Seeing Huo Mian had softened, Huo Siqian cleaned up the food on the floor and walked to the kitchen.

He brought out another bowl of rice and a new plate of vegetables. He placed the body of the fish into Huo Mian’s bowl and took the tail and head for himself.

Then, he brought the platter over and put it on the small table beside Huo Mian’s bed.

“Don’t knock it down again. This is all I cooked; if you knock it down, the baby will go hungry,” Huo Siqian instructed.

Huo Mian didn’t speak.

Then Huo Siqian returned to the dinner table and began to eat the plain food in relish.

Huo Mian looked at the fish in her bowl and had a lump in her throat.

She remembered when she was young, Uncle Jing went out to work and didn’t return; her family was tight in funds.

To provide schooling and food for her and her younger brother, her mother lived a frugal life.

The food they had most frequently were potatoes and cabbage. To give her more nutritious food, her mother would get up early and go to the beach to buy fresh fish from the fishermen.

She stewed soup with the fish and gave all the meat to her and Zhixin, taking the head for herself.

At that time, she and her brother were little; once, Zhixin asked their mother, “Mom, why do you always eat the fish head?”

Their mother had said fish heads were delicious; when they grew up, they realized that there was no meat on the fish heads and their mother had lied to them due to her love for them.

In the past years, her adopted mother had had some misunderstandings for Huo Mian because of some past issues, but she had a kind heart.

She had raised Huo Mian like her own, and Huo Mian would always remember that.

She didn’t desert Zhixin and her adopted mother after she found the professor and Lu Yan.

But today, Huo Siqian, a man who had a lofty position and enjoyed luxurious food each day, wanted to live a simple life on this uninhabited island. She couldn’t understand why he did it and wondered if he was really happy living such a life.

After a long silence, Huo Mian finally gave in for the sake of the unborn baby.

She picked up the chopsticks and began to eat slowly.

Sitting not far from her, Huo Siqian smiled gently; no matter what Huo Mian did, he’d never get angry and would always be patient.

He didn’t know why he acted like this. He used to say Huo Mian was Qin Chu and Su Yu’s weakness.

But, she was also his own fatal weakness.

Ian seemed to have discovered it. If Huo Siqian hadn’t left with Mian, Ian would have threatened him with Huo Mian.

But Huo Siqian would never allow it to happen.

– In South Hill Manor –

“Sis… Who’s this old guy?” The moment Little Bean entered, she saw Pudding sitting on the sofa with an old man and they seemed to be studying something.
