Chapter 1209: Master Qin’s Punishment 10

It was already 9 AM when Huo Mian woke up the next morning…

"Damn it, I'm late!" She tried to crawl out of bed, but she realized that her entire body ached.

Stupid Qin Chu, he almost played her to death last night! It seemed like he wanted to gobble her up; sure, they were still newlyweds, but wasn't he taking things a little far?

As she panicked, she noticed a piece of paper by her pillow and right away recognized that it was Mr. Qin's writing. "Honey, I got you the morning off, you should sleep in. Thanks for all the hard work last night."

Huo Mian felt like crying upon reading his last sentence; yup, it really was 'hard work'.

Her hips were about to detach from their sockets, and her legs were so sore that she couldn't even stretch.

She felt like she had hiked Mount Everest the night before…

After stretching, Huo Mian lazily climbed out of bed…

After she got ready and changed, she headed downstairs, and Uncle Li immediately asked the kitchen to prepare breakfast.

Just then, her phone rang, and she didn't recognize the number…


"Hi, is this Ms. Huo Mian?"

"This is she."

"I'm Miss Song Yixuan's accountant. She asked me to transfer you the money. Could you tell me which bank account you would like it to be transferred to?"

Only then did Huo Mian remember her bet with Song Yixuan – if she won, the latter would pay her the exact amount of the cost of her Audi R8.

"Just transfer it to my ICBC bank card, I'll send you the account number right now."

"Okay, I'll transfer you the money right away."

"How are Song Yixuan and her cousin doing?" Huo Mian probed, to which her accountant answered, "Miss Song's been discharged, but her older cousin's injuries were more severe. She's undergoing reconstruction surgery at the hospital."

"Okay, I got it, thanks."

After hanging up, Huo Mian sent the accountant her card number, and she received a message from the bank ten minutes later.

Huo Mian looked at the million-yuan-or-so transfer and realized that Song Yixuan, although annoying, was still a woman of her word.

Then, the accountant sent her another message, "Miss Song said that since you received the money, she hopes you can delete the video on your phone."

"I got it."

Huo Mian knew that Song Yixuan thought the video might come back and bite her on the ass in the future. She didn't see the point in keeping it anyways, so she deleted it.

She just hoped that Song Yixuan and Song Yishi would keep their promise about their other bet and avoid her in the future…

Either way, seeing the Song cousins would always ruin her day, so she was better off not seeing them…

After breakfast, Huo Mian looked at the time and saw that it was still early, so she drove over to Sky Blessing Court to see her mom.

- Sky Blessing Court -

"Mian, why are you here at this hour, don't you have work?" Yang Meirong was surprised to see Huo Mian, who replied, "Yeah, but I had the morning off."

Then, she scanned the room. "Where's Xiuping?"

"Oh, she's out eating with friends."

"Friends? She hasn't been here very long, how did she make friends already?" Huo Mian was surprised.

"Communications tools are so advanced these days with WeChat and everything, I have no idea how she met them… and she doesn't like it when I ask," Yang Meirong said.

"That's not okay, what if one of them tricks her or if something happens to her, who will be responsible then? Mom… you should ask her to go home, or else you would have to constantly worry about her."

Huo Mian didn't like Yang Xiuping, so she had no intention of her staying…

"Okay, I'll talk to her when she gets back." Yang Meirong nodded as she added, "Mian, have you eaten? I can whip something up for you."

"It's okay, I already ate. I just wanted to come to see you."

Then, she took out 50,000 yuan in cash from her purse and placed it on the coffee table. "Mom, take this, don't be so frugal on yourself. I'm making enough money now, so you have to treat yourself better."

"Mian… stop giving me money, I don't need it. I didn't even finish spending the money you gave me last time."

"Just take it, buy something to eat or use."

After giving her mother the money, Huo Mian had some fruit. Soon, it was time to go to the hospital, so she took a cab there since her car was at the shop and it'll be a while before she could get it back.

As soon as she arrived at the hospital, Huo Mian received a phone call from Jiang Xiaowei.

"Mian, are you at work?"

"Yeah, I just got to the hospital, what's up?"

"Did Su Yu go looking for you?"

"No, why would he come looking for me?" Huo Mian asked, wondering what was going on, and Jiang Xiaowei hesitated.
