Chapter 1129: Back to Seventeen 10

"To watch a movie." Rick was also a man of few words; no wonder he and Qin Chu were good friends, their personalities were really similar.

Both seem like they would die if they spoke one more word than they had to…

"Um…" Curious, Huo Mian glanced over at the woman standing not far behind Rick – she was the one Rick was really nervous about the other day at his party.

So it was true, Rick, the iceberg man, was really in love…

"Oh… enjoy the movie!"

"Are you watching a movie by yourself?" Rick was surprised to see Huo Mian at the movie theatre alone, but Huo Mian shook her head. "Qin Chu will be here soon."

Rick nodded and replied, "Okay then, we're going to go in first."

"Sounds good."

Rick's movie was about to begin, while Huo Mian and Qin Chu's movie was in 30 minutes. Therefore, they went into the auditorium before her. As they headed in, Rick's girlfriend, Xixi, even smiled at Huo Mian, who warmly returned her smile with a smile of her own…

Huo Mian held their movie tickets and waited outside the doors…

Soon, the movie was about to start; everyone began walking into the auditorium, but Qin Chu was nowhere to be seen.

Anxious, Huo Mian picked up her phone and called him…

"I'm sorry, the subscriber you dialed is powered off, please try again later."

His phone was off… Huo Mian remembered that she told Qin Chu when and where to meet him, did he go to a different theatre? Or did something come up and he had to deal with it?

But if something really did happen, he would never make her wait here.

As her mind began to wander, a voice suddenly sounded from behind…

"Miss, are you waiting for someone?"

Huo Mian immediately turned around and leaped into that man's arms, hugging his neck as tight as she could.

Her movements were so sudden that the workers began shooting weird glances at them…

"I thought you weren't coming…"

"Of course I was coming, I promised you I'd be here. If I didn't come, you would make me kneel on a durian when we get home," Qin Chu said as he lovingly brushed the stray hairs away from Huo Mian's face.

She smiled and linked arms with Qin Chu as they walked into the auditorium together…

They were watching a new release, called Love O2O.

Huo Mian read the book before and thought the plot was funny and relaxing…

Therefore, when she heard that it was made into a movie and found out the main characters were really good looking, she decided to come to watch.

A while back, she came to watch The Lost Tomb with Zhu Lingling, since Qin Chu was busy with GK's year-end celebration, and Xiaowei was pregnant.

She really liked that movie… It was the end of the year, so there were a lot of movie releases that starred young, good-looking actors. Being able to see a movie with actors who were both good looking and good at acting was rarer than ever.

After watching The Lost Tomb and Love O2O, Huo Mian was pleasantly surprised.

She and Qin Chu were still discussing the plot of the movie they just watched as they walked out of the auditorium.

"Oh right, Honey, I saw Rick as I was buying tickets…"

"Oh yeah?"

"Yeah, I think he was with his girlfriend. I was really surprised to see him at the movie theatre, haha."

"He's still a man, you shouldn't be so surprised…" Qin Chu laughed.

Huo Mian suddenly thought of an important question. "Hey, you haven't eaten yet, have you?"

"No." Qin Chu shook his head.

He was working the entire afternoon, and Mayor Cai was supposed to treat him to dinner. Yet, since he agreed to go to the movies with Huo Mian, he came back in such a hurry that he forgot to eat on his way back.

His private plane, which he was on for more than two hours provided meals, but the sensitivity of humans' taste buds was reduced in the air, so he rarely ate when flying…

Therefore, his stomach had been empty this entire time…

"Why didn't you say so earlier? We could've eaten first and then watched the movie." Heartbroken, Huo Mian looked at him.

"It's fine… I just wanted to spend time with you."

"Are you an idiot…?" Huo Mian was furious as she punched Qin Chu gently on the shoulder; she was the only person who could say that Qin Chu was an idiot.

She was also the only one Qin Chu was willing to be an idiot with…

"It's okay if I'm an idiot, I'll be fine as long as I have a smart wife." Qin Chu laughed aloud again, and Huo Mian's heart filled with happy content. "Did you eat honey today? What's with all the sweet talk?"

Mr. Qin's occasional whispers of love were sweet to hear…

"Let's go, I'll treat you to a midnight snack…" Huo Mian waved her wallet in the air as she pulled Qin Chu by the hand. Then, the pair headed over to the food street next to the theatre.

There was a Hunan restaurant on that street; it was a little spicy, but the food was delicious.

Huo Mian happily pulled Qin Chu into the restaurant; to her surprise, however, she saw Su Yu as soon as they walked in.

He was sitting there with Tang Chuan and a woman Huo Mian didn't recognize. They sat near the door and were very attention-grabbing.

"Should we… eat somewhere else?" Huo Mian felt awkward; she swore she didn't know Su Yu would also be here.

Talk about a coincidence…
