Chapter 1150: It’s Important to Know One※s Own Limitations 1
It was already past 8 PM when Qin Chu arrived home. Huo Mian had already taken a shower and was on their bed, watching Yu Qiuyu's "Notes From the Hills". More often than not, Huo Mian preferred the laid-back life as opposed to the city's fast-paced lifestyle. She enjoyed waking up naturally, enjoying a slow breakfast, soaking in the sun on the balcony with a fat cat in her arms, reading a novel; this was the kind of life Huo Mian wanted.
However, now was not the time. While she was young, she wanted to strive for more.
After all, a person must bring value to the life they were given. She intended to realize her lazy dreams after their retirement.
She wanted to travel the world with Qin Chu while enjoying a simple and relaxed life --
Retirement should look like retirement...
"What are you thinking about, baby?" After his shower, Qin Chu directly climbed onto the bed. He cupped Huo Mian's cute face and planted a sweet kiss on her lips.
After a long day at work, what Qin Chu looked forward to the most was coming home to see his most beloved one, on their bed, waiting for him.
Then, they would talk about the events of the day, sharing what happened with one another.
"I'm thinking about our life after retirement."
"Retirement? Baby＃ you're thinking too much, we're still in our 20s..." Qin Chu didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
"It'll come before you know it. Don't you know that time flies? Think back to the seven years that passed us by, don't you think the years passed by really quickly?" Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu stubbornly.
"Hm＃ it was pretty fast." Qin Chu squinted his eyes as he began thinking about his wife's words.
"Exactly. Now that I think about it, we're not young anymore＃ Maybe in the blink of an eye, we'll be old."
After Huo Mian finished her fantasizing in Qin Chu's arms, she asked, "Was work busy today?"
"It wasn't too bad. Every day's pretty much the same." Qin Chu nodded. He wasn't too interested in managing the corporation. He was only in it because he couldn't abandon the family business. Since he agreed to take on the job, he would do his best. Ever since he took over GK, its performance had improved drastically. The company's biggest investors were all very fond of Qin Chu and his capabilities. Qin Chu's father retired with peace of mind since it was standard for a father to pass on his business to his son.
"Oh, right, Honey＃ I'm going to be on a live broadcast tomorrow." Huo Mian suddenly remembered this important event she wanted to talk to Qin Chu about.
"Live broadcast?" Qin Chu furrowed his brows, evidently surprised.
"What's the show?"
"Something called 'The Strongest Brain in History'."
"I've never heard of it..."
"Haha, me neither. Apparently, it's a new show where successful professionals are invited to show off their intelligence. I'm not interested in that part, but I am interested in their charity. The producer told me that for an hour and a half of my live broadcast, the show would donate 1 million yuan to children in poverty. If I can help those kids just by doing a live broadcast, why shouldn't I, right?"
"Oh, I see. Sure, whatever you want. Just don't work too hard＃ we have enough money," Qin Chu said as he embraced Huo Mian lovingly.
"Ha, I know, it's not about the money. I just want to do my part."
"Thank you for understanding, Mr. Qin. Ha, let's go to sleep."
"Hm? Do you still have work to do?" Huo Mian looked confused.
"Yes, I still have one important thing to do..." Qin Chu was more than serious.
"Okay, then go ahead..." Huo Mian nodded innocently, returning to her book, but her body was instantly mounted by Mr. Qin＃ In the next second, his lips were on hers...
So the important thing that Mr. Qin had to do was - this?
- The next morning -
Huo Mian left for work early in the morning. As soon as she reached South Side, she was greeted by Ni Yang, whom she hadn't seen in a very long time.
"Sister Mian, I need help." His features were hidden by his baseball cap and mask.
"Hurry up and come in." Huo Mian looked around, checking for paparazzi.
