Chapter 1177: Can’t Touch the Boss※s Woman 8
Huo Mian wasn't surprised to hear this; she figured out what was going on as soon as she realized that Song Yishi and that producer were jackals from the same lair. What surprised her, however, was that Mrs. Qin investigated into the matter herself. It seemed like she was more rational than she used to be.
"Mom＃ don't say her name when we're eating, you're going to ruin our appetites," Qin Chu reminded his mother.
Mrs. Qin immediately came back to her senses. "Right, right, let's not talk about her anymore＃"
Everyone knew that Song Yishi's reputation in the Qin Family had gone to crap; she would never be able to chase after Qin Chu by sucking up to his parents ever again＃
After dinner, Huo Mian helped the maid clean up the dishes. Then, she made some tea for Qin Chu's father.
Qin Chu sat down with his father as they drank tea and played chess. It was a rare sight to see.
That night, the Qin couple unwillingly said goodbye to Qin Chu and Huo Mian.
Mrs. Qin said, "If you're not too busy, remember to visit more often!"
"We will." Huo Mian and Qin Chu booth nodded, and Mrs. Qin added, "Call me and tell me what you want to eat in advance, I'll prepare everything."
"We got it, Mom, go back inside, it's too cold out here."
Then, Qin Chu walked his mother back into the manor before getting into their car with Huo Mian＃
"You should open the handbag my mom gave you." Qin Chu smiled as he looked at Huo Mian, who was sitting in the passenger's seat.
"Why?" confused, Huo Mian asked.
"To see how much my mom put in there＃"
"Huh? I thought she just gave me a bag, did she give me money as well?" Huo Mian was dumbfounded.
"I know my mom, and she's actually a really generous woman. Take a look, I'm not completely sure either," Qin Chu said as he drove.
Huo Mian carefully opened the bag zipper to see a bunch of cash lying inside the bag, all tied up in bundles.
She counted ten bundles, meaning that there were 100,000 yuan in that handbag.
At the bottom of the bag was a 1-yuan bill＃
"Um＃ one in a hundred thousand＃ your mother sure was generous＃" Huo Mian said, a little flabbergasted.
All she did was call her mother-in-law 'mom'. Not only did she give Huo Mian a 400,000 yuan bag, she also stuffed that bag with 100,000 yuan in cash.
Yup, she sure was a generous woman＃
"It means she's happy that you called her mom." Qin Chu smiled; he had been worried about Huo Mian's relationship with his mother ever since they got married. Now, things were finally looking up.
He knew Huo Mian didn't take a liking to his mother because of money; rather, it was because they had gained mutual understanding.
"Honey＃ GK's holding a celebrity party tomorrow night, do you want to come?"
"A celebrity party?"
"Yeah, all of GK's celebrities are going. The company even invited a few renowned domestic superstars and directors, I'm going to discuss with them the future development of GK Film and television＃"
"Hey, sounds like fun. Should I bring a little booklet with me, so I can ask for autographs anytime I want to?"
"Nope, they're the ones who need to bring little booklets, since they're going to want your signature, Mrs. President."
Huo Mian laughed. "Where and when is it being held?"
"8 PM, at one of GK's hotels."
"Okay then, I'll go with you. I'm worried about the female celebrities at your company＃ They're capable of gobbling you up without even spitting out the bones."
Huo Mian decided to go; she didn't want to give the female celebrities any opportunities to get close to Qin Chu.
Qin Chu laughed upon hearing what she said＃
- The next day -
After Huo Mian got off work, she called Qin Chu and asked him if she should head over to the hotel beforehand for makeup and a wardrobe change.
Qin Chu said she didn't need to since it was just a private party and they were only having dinner and going to a nightclub afterward. The gathering was going to be casual.
Huo Mian immediately felt relaxed and headed to GK Headquarters with her mid-length white cotton jacket, toque, scarf, and black-rimmed glasses.
Then, the two of them drove over to the hotel and arrived at 7:50 PM.
Upon arrival, they walked straight into the VIP hall, which was bustling with people. There was a couple of dozen celebrities, both male and female. It was an incredible sight to see.
"Sister Mian!" Ni Yang, wearing a long black wind coat and looking particularly dashing, was the first to stand up and greet Huo Mian.
