Chapter 1128: Back to Seventeen 9

"My place… we already have all the help we need…" Huo Mian said slowly.

The truth was, an extra person at South Hill Manor wouldn't affect anything. At most, Mr. Qin would have to pay a few more thousand yuan in employee income, but it was fine since he was rich enough to afford to hire a hundred more people.

GK could make more profit in a day than a regular person made in his or her life…

Therefore, to Qin Chu, money was just a number rather than something that needed to be saved up.

However, Huo Mian instinctively disliked this cousin of hers, so she didn't want to pretend to be a saint and hire Yang Xiuping over to her house.

"Mian… why don't you find a job for her at your hospital or at Qin Chu's company? She can't just stay home and do nothing."

Yang Meirong would never ask her niece to stay with her, day in and day out. She didn't want to use her like a housekeeper, so she wanted to help her find a job.

Yang Meirong knew how high her daughter's current social status was and thought it would be easy for Huo Mian to find Yang Xiuping a job.

Before Huo Mian had the chance to answer, Yang Xiuping said, "Mian… I'm a timid person, and I really don't like working at a hospital… Can you see if there are any openings at my brother-in-law's company? I can work there."

"I haven't been there in days. I'll let you know when I go, but I can't make any promises. His company is mainly looking for salespeople or high-level executives… I don't think you'd be able to do those jobs. But I feel bad asking you to work there as a cleaning lady."

"Then… I'm sure my brother-in-law's office needs cleaning, I can be his personal cleaner." The girl's eyes twinkled at the mention of Qin Chu, to which Huo Mian replied vaguely, "He already has an assistant and a bunch of secretaries…"

"There's no rush, Mian… Xiuping can stay here for the time being while you see if there's anything that suits her, preferably a job that provides her with meals and hostel. It'll be inconvenient for her to go to and from work if she lives here."

"Mom… only the service industry offers meals and hostel, like restaurants or hotels… The employees of big enterprises don't provide things like that, just lunch at most." Huo Mian looked at her mother, feeling pushed into a corner.

"That sounds good too… we'll talk about it when you find something."

After their conversation, Huo Mian lost all her appetite; she wiped the corners of her mouth and got up. "Mom, I'm full, I'm going to go now."

"Don't leave so soon, have some fruit. Xiuping can wash an apple for you."

"It's okay Mom, I have somewhere to be." Huo Mian hugged her mother and headed out the door…

"Mian, let me send you off," Yang Xiuping offered and walked Huo Mian all the way to the gates of Yang Meirong's residential district.

"Cousin Mian…"


"Why didn't my brother-in-law come with you today?" Yang Xiuping suddenly asked, to which Huo Mian answered, "He's out of town on a business trip."

"Oh… then you should be careful…"

"Careful about what?" Huo Mian frowned, not sure what Xiuping was trying to say.

"When men go out of town on business trips, it usually means he's got someone on the side. My brother-in-law is so handsome and rich, maybe he has a mistress. You should keep a close eye on him and stop him from going onto business trips in the future."

"Ha… who told you this?" Huo Mian sneered, and Yang Xiuping stared blankly back at her, "I saw it on TV, that's what usually happens…"

Huo Mian patted Yang Xiuping's shoulder and said profoundly, "I suggest that you stop watching 8 PM TV dramas… You should go about town when you have time and get a taste of how it actually feels to live in a big city."

Then, Huo Mian pressed her remote control, opened the door to her car, and got onto the driver's seat, while Yang Xiuping continued to ponder what Huo Mian meant by what she just said.

Upon arriving at the downtown cinema, Huo Mian saw someone she knew while buying movie tickets for Qin Chu and herself…

"Um… why are you here?" Huo Mian was shocked to see Rick outside the movie theatre.
