Chapter 1131: A Battle of Geniuses 2

"I won't."

"Why not?"

"Because lettuce is my absolute favorite…" Qin Chu replied in equal seriousness, and Huo Mian burst out in laughter…

Why was Mr. Qin so cute? He looked so adorable when answering her question.

It was already 11:30 PM when they headed home.

Huo Mian was so sleepy that she fell asleep in the passenger's seat…

Just then, she received a WeChat message on her phone. "Hey, are you sleep yet?"

Qin Chu rarely looked at Huo Mian's phone, but when he glanced over and saw that the message was from Huo Siqian, he became anxious.

Therefore, he held the steering wheel with one hand and picked up Huo Mian's phone with the other.

After unlocking it with much familiarity, he replied, "What do you want?"

"The old man's going to run out of money soon… I think he's going to come looking for you soon. Whatever measures he decides to take, whether it's playing the victim or the parent card, promise me that you won't help him."

"I know," Qin Chu replied; he immediately realized that Huo Siqian was talking to Huo Mian about Huo Zhenghai; it seemed like Jiang Hong and Huo Siqian were more than ready to snatch the Huo Corporation, leaving Huo Zhenghai with nowhere and no one to go to.

"Oh, did you realize anything different on your way to work these days?" Huo Siqian asked.

"What do you mean…?"

"For example, has anything weird been happening to you?" Huo Siqian's question was vague, but Qin Chu had a feeling that he knew Huo Mian was being followed.

"I feel like I'm being followed…" Qin Chu replied on purpose, wanting to test out Huo Siqian's reactions, but the latter quickly steered away from the subject. "Haha… I think you've been watching too many mystery TV shows, why would anyone follow you?"

"What do you mean by 'weird' then?" Qin Chu replied in lieu of Huo Mian.

"Nothing, you should go to bed soon… There are so many surprises in this world that are just waiting for you to discover."

Then, Huo Siqian stopped replying, and Qin Chu decided not to probe further.

- Huo Family Mansion -

Huo Siqian stood by the window in his second-floor bedroom with a glass of wine in his hand. He muttered to himself, "Tsk tsk, you damned girl… I can't believe you would let someone else talk to me on your phone, you're so apathetic."

He was an extremely sensitive and careful person; plus, he knew how Huo Mian usually reacted and talked to him on WeChat.

He knew her too well, so he immediately realized that someone was pretending to talk to him as Huo Mian.

He originally wanted to let that girl in on some information, but if it was Qin Chu who was talking to her, then he didn't want to reveal anything.

After all, it had nothing to do with Qin Chu and everything to do with Huo Mian…

If Huo Mian knew that person came to C City and even visited her at the hospital, she would be really surprised, wouldn't she?

"Siqian… you're not asleep yet?" His mother, Jiang Hong's voice sounded from behind him.

The door to his room was open, so Jiang Hong saw that Huo Siqian was still awake as she headed downstairs for a cigarette.

"Mom…" Huo Siqian turned around with a smile on his face.

"Why aren't you sleep?"

"I couldn't fall asleep…"

"Me too… For some reason, I've been having severe headaches recently…" Jiang Hong walked in with a cigarette in her hand.

Huo Zhenghai hadn't been home in a while; ever since Shen Jiani's incident, he had been sleeping with some university student.

It seemed like he wanted to have another child at his old age; after all, the fact that Huo Siyi was someone else's son was quite a blow to his pride and dignity.

Jiang Hong was more than used to how slutty Huo Zhenghai was since they didn't get married for love to begin with.

"I'll ask a Chinese medicine doctor to come and give you a massage tomorrow."

Jiang Hong nodded; then, she asked, "Siqian… how are things going at the company?"

"Everything's ready, I'm just waiting for that old man to go looking for help. We're fine as long as Huo Mian doesn't help him."

"Then… do you think Huo Mian would help him?" Jiang Hong smiled and asked.
