Chapter 1280: Huo Mian, I Love You 11

"I have no idea, but I've been investigating into it too. Jing De is probably the only one who knows, but he's already dead," Huo Mian said calmly while Huo Zhenghai fell silent.

"I'm not your daughter, so I would never take an extra cent from the Huo Corporation. I have lived by these principles since I found out, so there was no reason for me to help you when you came to me. I never wanted anything to do with your family's civil war…"

"I know," Huo Zhenghai sighed, mostly at his pathetic life. Aside from Huo Yanyan, he had no other children of his own. Not Huo Siqian, Huo Siyi… not even Huo Mian.

Talk about karma…

At the thought of Huo Yanyan, he suddenly asked, "Have you heard from Yanyan recently? Can you ask her to come and see me one last time?"

After hesitating for a second, Huo Mian slowly answered, "I saw Huo Yanyan a couple of days ago. She got… married."

"Married?" Huo Zhenghai repeated in surprise.

So many things had happened in his family; it seemed like everyone's lives had changed…

"Yeah, she married an ordinary man and is living an ordinary life. But that man treats her pretty well."

"Good, good."

"I don't think Huo Siqian will let Huo Yanyan come see you. Do you still want her to try?"

After thinking about it for a few seconds, Huo Zhenghai thought Huo Mian had a point, so he shook his head…

At this, Huo Mian got up. "Take care of yourself, I will go now…"

"Mian…" He suddenly called out, prompting Huo Mian to turn her head around.

Then, Huo Zhenghai took a jade ring off from his thumb with some difficulty and handed it to her, "Give this to your mom, it's something to remember me by. I've been with countless women in this life, but a few really loved me. Jiang Hong and I got married to benefit our families. Not only do we not feel anything towards each other, we even treat each other as enemies. I spoiled Shen Jiani to no end, but she heartlessly betrayed and manipulated me. Only your mom… really loved me… It's too bad I didn't realize it back then."

"Is that really necessary?" Huo Mian didn't want to take it, so she refused at first.

"Take it, it's the last thing I have left. I know she has enough money, consider this as memorabilia…" Huo Zhenghai insisted.

Upon seeing Huo Zhenghai's persistence, Huo Mian carefully took the jade ring from his hand. "I'll make sure to give it to her."

"Mian, there are two more things I need to tell you. You're not my daughter, but it's fate that led us together…"

"Go ahead." Huo Mian quietly watched Huo Zhenghai, who was withering away on his sickbed.

"First, Jing De is not the honest man you think he is, he's not as good as he seems. He's extremely manipulative and had deceived me for years. I only realized this a while back but had no idea what your true identity was until you told me just now. I don't even know where my real daughter is. If you end up finding her one day, I hope you can take her to my grave to see me. After all, she's my child…"

"If I find her, I will." Huo Mian nodded.

"Second, you have to be careful of Huo Siqian. He's… capable of doing anything. You and Qin Chu have to be extremely careful. I have a feeling that he's going to play games with you in the future."

"I know." Huo Mian nodded again.

After carefully putting the ring in her bag, she felt her heart had become extremely heavy as she walked out of Huo Zhenghai's room.

"That was fast."


"Do you want a ride?"

"No thanks, I sent Qin Chu a message. He's coming to pick me up."

After refusing a ride from Huo Siqian, Huo Mian walked out of the mansion to see Qin Chu's car parked outside; he was driving the company's Audi R8.

Upon seeing Qin Chu, Huo Mian immediately got on, and the couple drove away…

As he watched them leave, Huo Siqian smiled with a complicated expression on his face before turning around to head upstairs.

"Why… are you here? Get… the hell out!" Huo Zhenghai cursed with difficulty.

"You old undying man… I can't believe you would try to cause me trouble, even on your deathbed…" Huo Siqian said as he randomly picked up a throw pillow and headed towards him.

"What… do you think you're doing?" Huo Zhenghai's face turned pale and his voice shook as he watched Huo Siqian advance towards him.
