Chapter 1083: Now That Was Awkward 4

Huo Mian looked at Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling with puppy-dog eyes, but they both remained silent.

What happened to brotherhood? And friendship?

"Um# girl, I think you'll be fine, haha. If we help you, we might overcomplicate things,"

Zhu Lingling laughed.

"Screw you# you're shirking from responsibility#" Huo Mian felt like crying.

"Huo Mian, I think Lingling has a point. You don't have to be scared, you're Qin Chu's pressure point# You're the only person in this world who can rein him in. So, don't worry, just go#" Gao Ran said as he waved goodbye at Huo Mian.

"Gao Ran# way to burn your bridges, I took Lingling's place to help you guys, you can't refuse to help me#" Huo Mian said, pitiful as ever.

"Brave soldier, go, you'll be fine# if something happens to you, I'll remember to light some incense at your grave exactly one year from now, haha#" Zhu Lingling burst out in laughter; she had never seen Huo Mian so scared of Qin Chu and was reveling in her misery#

"Damn it, you're such a monster, and you#" Huo Mian pointed at Gao Ran. "I can't believe you guys won't help me! Fine, I'll go by myself. I have one life and one head, what can he do?"

Then, Huo Mian got up and left without even saying goodbye.

"Hey, stupid cop, say# will Qin Chu really get mad at Mian?" Zhu Lingling became a little worried.

"Lovers' quarrels are easily mended, they'll be fine. Let's not worry about her#" Gao Ran knew Qin Chu well; as soon as Huo Mian acted coyishly or played cute, Qin Chu would be defeated.

Zhu Lingling and Gao Ran didn't need to be concerned for her at all#

After saying goodbye to Jiang Xiaowei and Wei Liao, Qin Chu and Huo Mian headed home.

On the way, Qin Chu didn't say a word, making Huo Mian more nervous than ever. "Weird#I didn't do anything wrong, why do I have such a guilty conscience?" Huo Mian mumbled to herself#

Qin Chu tilted his head nonchalantly and asked, "Did# you enjoy the duet?"

"Um# it wasn't bad, but wasn't that enjoyable either," Huo Mian said as she looked down, @Damn it, who in the world sold her out? How did Qin Chu find out so fast?@

"Then# do you want to enjoy yourself even more?" Qin Chu continued to ask, and Huo Mian immediately shook her hands. "No, it's okay, I'll pass."

Just then, Qin Chu parked the car# He held her hand as the two of them walked into South Hill Manor.

He took Huo Mian over to the white triangle piano 每 she looked at the black and white keys on it and felt her heart flutter.

Qin Chu pulled her down in front of the piano, and Huo Mian smiled awkwardly, "Honey, what are we doing?"

"I heard you had mad piano skills# why don't you play Still in Love With You for me?"

"Haha# Honey, don't be like that." Huo Mian felt guiltier than ever# did Qin Chu see the live broadcast? How in the world did he find out the song she and Su Yu played? Did he have magical wife-stalking powers?

Perhaps, someone told on her to him#

At this thought, Huo Mian suddenly asked, "Honey# who told you that I played a duet with Su Yu?"

Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian in all seriousness and said, "Dr. Huo 每 oh, you're Chief Huo now, can you not change the subject? I'm asking you to play a song for me, can you not try to confuse me?"

"Honey# I'm sorry," upon seeing Qin Chu's determination, Huo Mian decided to admit she was wrong and apologize.

"What are you sorry for?" Qin Chu crossed his hands; he sat handsomely beside Huo Mian and looked into her eyes.

"I# I shouldn't have played a duet with Su Yu#" Huo Mian apologized to Mr. Qin, not sure if she wanted to cry or laugh.

"Yeah, what else?" Qin Chu continued to ask calmly.
