Chapter 1109: Would It Kill You to Hold My Hand? 10

"F*ck, how the hell would I know that you wanted to hold my hand? I thought you were getting water, so I got out of your way," Zhu Lingling retorted, and Qin Chu and Huo Mian burst out in laughter upon hearing them#

"We just got onto the road, and you guys are already touching each other. Are you guys going to start having car sex in 5 kilometers?" Huo Mian asked on purpose.

Gao Ran fell silent#

Zhu Lingling said, "Huo Mian, you're filthy," to which Huo Mian replied proudly, "I was under Mr. Qin's tutelage."

"Honey, should you really make your own husband the scapegoat?"

"Of course I should# I married you so that you could be my scapegoat."

"Okay, I'll suck it up then# but let's do it three times tonight to make up for me being a scapegoat," Mr. Qin replied in all seriousness.

This time it was Zhu Lingling and Gao Ran's turn to burst out in laughter#

The four of them laughed and chatted along the way, and when they arrived at the hotel, they immediately checked in.

Whenever Huo Mian saw the words, 'MIAN Hotel', she would remember just how much Qin Chu loved her.

The hotel manager reserved two presidential suites for them in advance, while the rest of the rooms were filled with GK employees.

This time, Jiang Linyue came as well# This was her only chance to come to Yunding Mountain and see Qin Chu.

GK's end-of-year celebration benefitted the staff; when Qin Chu's father was still at the company, he just gave the employees year-end bonuses. However, when Qin Chu took over, he thought bonuses were boring, so he began planning this celebration two weeks in advance.

He decided to focus on fun and entertainment, giving the employees a chance to relax. At the same time, this event will be reported on local newspapers and media outlets to promote the vacation village, thus hitting two birds with one stone.

Huo Mian had to admit that Qin Chu was quite business savvy#

"I didn't know this place was so beautiful in the winter," Huo Mian was immediately mesmerized by the snowy landscape before her.

Yunding Mountain had rolling mountain ranges, so its winters were a glorious sight to see.

"If you like this place, we can stay for a few more days after the celebration," Qin Chu looked at her lovingly.

"It's okay, haha, it's the end of the year and I know how busy you are, we'll go home after the celebration and come back when we have time in the future."

Huo Mian wasn't that stubborn and never expected Qin Chu's world to revolve around her, which he really appreciated#

"President Qin, dinner is starting in 15 minutes, would you like to eat alone, or with everyone in the Magnolia Hall?" The hotel manager asked carefully.

"Honey, where do you want to eat?" Qin Chu asked Huo Mian, and she answered, "I'm good either way."

"Then let's eat with the others," Qin Chu said.

"Okay, President Qin, dinner starts in 15 minutes in the Magnolia Hall. We will reserve a table for you, the Young Madam, and your friends." Then, the manager left#

Fifteen minutes later, Huo Mian and Qin Chu changed into formal attire and went downstairs with Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling.

They were dumbstruck upon entering Magnolia Hall#

There were more than a hundred tables set up in the ballroom; apparently, more than a thousand employees came to this celebration#

"Oh my god# what a scene, there's so many people! It's like we're at the Spring Festival celebration!" Gao Ran exclaimed.

"Some employees are on-duty# if everyone came, there would be even more people here," Qin Chu laughed.

The four of them walked up to the table in the middle of the room and sat down.

"Hi, President and Mrs. Qin," the employees greeted them along the way#

Zhu Lingling's mouth began watering upon seeing the food on the table; there were 20 different dishes, all delicately made, from seafood to meat, from stir-fry to soup.

Before they opened their mouths to speak, Jiang Linyue suddenly walked up to them in an emerald gown.

She held up the wine glass in her hand and smiled at Huo Mian. "Young Madam, I would like to thank you for all that you've done for me over the past few months, and thank you for promoting me. Haha, allow me to make a toast to you," she said as she drank the entire glass of wine.

Huo Mian quietly looked at Jiang Linyue with a complicated expression on her face.
