Chapter 1287: Huo Mian, I Love You 18
Right before he connected the call, Su Yu suddenly came up with an idea to prank Huo Mian…
Therefore, he used an app on his phone to conceal his real number before calling her.
When Huo Mian's phone rang, she looked at the weird caller ID, which didn't really look like a phone number.
However, it kept ringing, so after a moment's hesitation, she picked up. "Hello?"
Upon hearing Huo Mian's crisp voice from the other end of the phone, Su Yu felt his heartbeat speed up…
Then, he forced himself to stay calm and said, "Hello Miss Huo, I am from XX Insurance. Are you interested in buying insurance?"
Huo Mian froze for a second before quickly realizing who it was. Then, she asked, "So… did the big boss of Imperial Star Entertainment quit his job as CEO and is now in the insurance-selling business?"
Su Yu fell silent before replying, "How did you know it was me?"
What a waste of his effort; Huo Mian guessed it was him right away. He originally thought she would hang up upon hearing that he was selling her insurance.
"Your voice is pretty recognizable, you can't trick me," Huo Mian laughed.
So did Su Yu. "Ha… okay then Genius, you win."
He was pleasantly surprised that Huo Mian could immediately recognize his voice; this meant that at least to her, he wasn't just a passerby…
"I heard you came back today?"
"Yeah." Su Yu nodded.
"How are you doing?"
"Great, but I'm really tanned through…" Su Yu smiled.
"The situation in the South Sea is pretty intense these days, I thought our county was going to war when I heard that a commander of your grandfather's ranking was going there."
"War?" Su Yu froze for a second.
"Yeah, with the Lubing Islands for intruding in South Huaxia Sea."
"You're interested in national matters?" Su Yu asked, intrigued.
"We're all responsible for the prosperity and decline of the nation," Huo Mian laughed.
"Don't worry, we're not going to war. Huaxia won't send troops to die for small matters like this. The diplomats will solve the issue soon."
Huo Mian smiled but didn't reply…
"How have you been doing recently?" Su Yu asked a little awkwardly.
"I've been great."
"I heard… that you won a foreign award?" Su Yu didn't remember what the award Tang Chuan mentioned was called, so his question was somewhat vague.
"Yeah." Huo Mian nodded.
"Thank you," Huo Mian replied politely.
"Then… you should go to bed, I'm going to hang up now," Su Yu knew there wasn't anything else to talk about anymore and didn't want them to be in awkward silence, so he quickly decided to hang up.
After hanging up, Su Yu looked gently at the photo on his screensaver.
If Huo Mian was his girlfriend and was beside him all the time, he would probably die of happiness, right?
He had never envied anyone in his life, and it was always others who envied him.
Yet, at this moment, he envied Qin Chu very much… because he could have Huo Mian, all to himself…
This, to Su Yu, was a luxury that he would never have…
He used to think he was extremely rich, but now he realized that Huo Mian was a luxury he could never afford.
After putting his phone back into his pocket, he smeared his cigarette onto the ground and walked up to the cliff, shouting into the open space in front of him, "Huo Mian, I love you!"
"Huo Mian, I really love you!"
"Huo Mian, Su Yu loves you very much!"
Su Yu finally got the three words he had been suppressing all this time off his chest.
But, could Huo Mian hear him?
After venting out his emotions, Su Yu felt much better and went home to bed.
The next morning, as soon as he arrived at Imperial Star and walked into his office, his assistant, An, walked in and said mysteriously, "President Su, something bad happened."
