Chapter 1340: Huo Mian’s Wish 1
"Because＃ usually only sisters like sentimental things like this＃ each getting half of something."
Qin Chu was also skilled in analyzing people's psychologies. Although he hadn't discussed the issue with Huo Mian much, he was sure that it wasn't Huo Mian's parents; they wouldn't send her only half of a pair of calabashes.
"What about male-female twins?" Rick was persistent.
"Like I've said before, a man wouldn't choose a feminine gift like a white jade calabash. It was a prized possession of a Han Dynasty Empress. Girls like these things." Qin Chu began having a headache; Rick really didn't understand women...
No wonder he always got into trouble with his girlfriend, sending her into fits of tears.
"How's your relationship with the girl?" Qin Chu rarely asked about Rick's personal life, but Huo Mian would be rather interested.
"Same old, same old＃ I really don't understand women＃ they never speak their minds. She says she's not angry, but she's obviously mad at something＃ She says she doesn't like something, then..." Rick had clearly fallen into the troubles of love.
"Give it time＃ you'll get it eventually," Qin Chu patted Rick's shoulders.
"Do you need more people for Huo Mian? I'm afraid of what Huo Siqian might do."
Everyone knew that Huo Mian was Qin Chu's only weakness.
This was why Rick was so worried. What if Huo Siqian harmed Huo Mian to hurt Qin Chu?
"No, it's not necessary＃ he would never do anything to Mian."
Not only would Huo Siqian not harm Huo Mian, Qin Chu was certain that the man would worry a lot about her.
"Alright then, just make sure to be careful. I'm here anytime you need me."
"Okay, make sure to tell me when you're about to get married."
Rick walked out of the office feeling speechless. He wasn't sure he could keep being friends with Qin Chu.
After Rick left, Qin Chu took out his phone and video called Huo Mian...
Huo Mian accepted the call immediately, smiling brightly...
She looked especially pleasant in her white lab coat and black-framed glasses.
"Doctor Huo, are you free at lunch? Do you feel like coming over for food?"
"I'm sorry, President Qin, but I need to study up on some new neurological medication that just came out. How about tonight? I'll treat you to good food tonight!"
"Alright then, I'll pick you up in the evening." Qin Chu hung up the phone gently.
Huo Mian sat down in front of her computer and began filtering through the new medication...
She didn't even have time to go to the cafeteria for lunch.
Just then, her office door was pushed open and in came Ni Yang with a box of exquisite-looking food.
"Why are you here? When did you come back?" Huo Mian smiled at the sight of Ni Yang.
"I've been back for two days already! Don't you watch the news? Geez..."
As he made his complaint, Ni Yang placed the box of food atop Huo Mian's desk. "I brought you your favorite, scallop dumplings."
"This is too much food...I can't finish it all."
"Um＃ you can share it with your assistant."
"You're right! Call Jie for me."
Ni Yang hesitated for a moment before turning around and saying, "Chen Jie, your boss wants you to eat with her."
"Oh, sure." Chen Jie walked into Huo Mian's office from the reception desk.
At the sight of Ni Yang, the nurses at South Side would scream at the top of their lungs＃ Since after all, he was an idol...
So, in order to not draw attention to himself, Ni Yang would always wear a black mask, a baseball cap, and a pair of sunglasses whenever he visited the hospital.
He would only take them off after he entered Huo Mian's office.
Ni Yang was almost back at full health. Huo Mian would put together the correct combination of vitamins and soothing Chinese herbs and send them off to him.
Each time, it was Chen Jie who delivered the medicine to Ni Yang.
After a while, they got to know each other...
Chen Jie walked in carefully...
"Jie, come here and sit with us!"
"Chief, it's okay＃ I can eat at the cafeteria." Chen Jie was clearly a bit shy.
Before Huo Mian could respond, Ni Yang interrupted, "The food in your cafeteria tastes like dog food. Sit down, I got double of everything."
Upon hearing this, Chen Jie's face ruddied...
