Chapter 1036: Flaunting Their Love 10
"A Christmas costume party in which all the guests have to go as villains, do you want to come?"
"Woah woah woah＃ that sounds really cool＃" Ni Yang burst out in laughter.
He was at an age at which he loved weird things, so he liked costume parties.
"Of course I am, it sounds amazing! I have a feeling that this will be the most unforgettable Christmas ever!" Ni Yang exclaimed as he clapped.
Looking at his handsome and energetic face, Huo Mian probed, "Have you＃ been in contact with Xie Juan lately?"
"Sis, why would you bring that scumbag up all of a sudden?" Ni Yang's face immediately fell at the mentioning of Xie Juan.
"Ni Yang, you shouldn't talk about her that way, she＃ she's still your mother."
"Mother? Haha, that word carries a lot of weight, but is she worth being called that? She's just that boy's mother, not mine. She didn't fulfill her responsibilities as my mother＃ I bet even she feels guilty about it now," Ni Yang sneered.
"Perhaps＃ something happened to her that she couldn't tell you about," Huo Mian said.
"What could've happened? Haha＃ I don't think that's the case. No mother in this world is capable of abandoning her son for years, not caring about his life or death＃ Is her heart made of stone?" Ni Yang smiled bitterly.
Upon seeing how agitated he became, Huo Mian decided not to bring her up again＃
Instead, she changed the subject, "After New Year's, I'm going to ask the company to slowly fill up your schedule. Since you're still recovering, for the first half of the year we'll limit your work to mostly photoshoots and maybe get you to produce a few singles. I'll make sure you don't have to participate in any action films, and let's push your concerts back. Your health is the most important thing right now."
"Thanks, Sister Mian."
"Don't thank me. You treat me like your sister, so of course I have to take care of my little brother," Huo Mian said as she lovingly patted Ni Yang's head.
"I'm lucky to have met a sister like you." Ni Yang smiled happily, showing two dimples. At this moment, he was more like the boy next door than an international superstar.
"Nope, I'm the lucky one. Even that brother of mine has been badgering me to get him your autograph. I don't even have the guts to upload photos of the two of us, because WeChat and Weibo might blow up."
"Ha, then let's just blow things up for them," Ni Yang said playfully as he whipped out his cellphone and snapped a selfie of him hiding behind her. Then, he photoshopped it a bit and uploaded it onto Weibo.
"My sister, Huo Mian, came to check up on me today. She also invited me to her Christmas party, yay!"
Right after Ni Yang uploaded the photo, nearly 40,000 fans commented 每 they were all his supporters＃
Therefore, the comments went something like this, "Big boss, you're the best!"
"I'm so happy for you, Merry Christmas!"
"Big boss, you've lost weight, your face is even smaller than Huo Mian's. You should really eat some more meat."
Huo Mian didn't know how to react upon seeing that last comment＃ That didn't sound like a compliment, did it?
After a while, Huo Mian walked out and drove to her coffee shop.
After Shuai Shuai recovered, Huo Mian went through connections to get him into a school, and Xie Juan no longer sold hand-pulled pancakes. Instead, she began working as a cleaning supervisor at Huo Mian's coffee shop on the pedestrian walkway. Her salary wasn't bad, and she could enjoy employee benefits. Plus, she was very hardworking at her job and kept the entire coffee shop so clean that one could eat off the floor.
As soon as Huo Mian walked in, everyone began greeting her.
"Hi, Young Madam."
"Just ignore me, go back to work." Huo Mian smiled.
"Young Madam, what would you like to drink?" The manager walked up to her and carefully asked.
"A hot mocha."
Then, Huo Mian walked upstairs to the second floor, where Xie Juan was cleaning. "Mrs. Xie."
"Dr. Huo." Upon seeing Huo Mian, Xie Juan immediately stood up. She acted reserved around Huo Mian, which was also a form of respect.
"How are things going here? Have you used to the work environment?"
"It's great, thank you for giving me an opportunity."
"I know you'll do good, let me know if you need anything."
"Dr. Huo＃ Ni Yang＃" Xie Juan hesitated.
