Chapter 1342: Huo Mian’s Wish 3
"But I..." Chen Jie swallowed her words.
"No buts. There is no such thing as someone being out of someone's league. That's just a stupid saying. What matters is how much you value each other. Jie, you're a nice girl and Ni Yang's a good kid. I won't ask how much you've both suffered in the past, but no matter what you guys decide, I just want the two of you to be happy."
Huo Mian really liked her assistant. The girl was smart, sensible, and straightforward.
"Chief＃ thank you so much." Chen Jie's eyes began tearing up upon hearing this; she was pleasantly surprised to receive such a positive response from her chief.
"Okay, okay＃ let's stop before we both start crying. Go back to work now, and I'll talk to Ni Yang when I get a chance.. Meanwhile, don't overthink things."
After she comforted Chen Jie, Huo Mian went back to tidying up.
After work, she left her own car at South Side's parking lot and got onto Qin Chu's.
"Honey＃ what are you treating me to?"
"Do you want hotpot skewers?"
Qin Chu: "..."
"I really want to eat that. It's such a cold day, how happy would steamy hot pot skewers make us?" Huo Mian cupped her face with her hands.
"Sure, let's go then."
Qin Chu truly spoiled Huo Mian to no end. He would agree to anything she suggested.
The pair parked their car in front of a hot pot skewer shop close to downtown.
Due to the time of the year, the place wasn't crowded yet...
The two sat down in front of a hot pot and began eating...
During dinner, Huo Mian told Qin Chu about Chen Jie and Ni Yang.
Qin Chu was silent the whole entire time...
"Hubby, you're not against artists dating right?"
"Why would I care?"
"Then why are you so quiet?"
"I'm wondering why you objected to Zhixin and Huang Yue's relationship back then but are now supporting Ni Yang and Chen Jie?"
Qin Chu couldn't really understand the difference between the two.
Men and women always did see things differently...
Huo Mian was saddened by the mention of Huang Yue. The night before New Year's Eve, she and Zhixin even drove to the North Hill Public Cemetery to visit Huang Yue. That poor girl...
"Hubby, the difference is in their personalities, not their status. Yue was both timid and innocent. Her innocence was verging on naivety. She was still a child and hadn't really stepped out into the real world, so she wasn't strong enough to take on life's blows. Zhixin was also young and their immature relationship wasn't going to last; it was way too unstable. Ni Yang and Chen Jie are different. They've both had similar experiences. Because of their difficult childhoods, they're both mature and sensible beyond their years. Jie's very detail-oriented and thorough. She always finishes everything I give her perfectly and never makes any excuses; she's a very responsible girl. Similarly, Ni Yang manages to stay clean in an environment like the entertainment industry, which is not an easy thing to do. If he could fall for Jie after seeing so many different women, it means that his feelings are for real. It's not infatuation, they really are attracted to each other."
After hearing Huo Mian's analysis, Qin Chu gave her a big thumbs up...
"Baby, you should really study psychology like Jiang Xiaowei. Your analysis is very accurate."
"I'm taking courses. I'm quite interested in the subject. After Xiaowei has her baby and returns to work, I'm going to bother her every day to learn more, haha..." Huo Mian laughed.
Qin Chu picked up a cooked shrimp ball and placed it onto Huo Mian's plate.
The pair enjoyed a happy meal together...
In the blink of an eye, it was already the end of February.
The duo decided to go back to the Qin Manor for dinner and therefore had the entire day to spend by themselves.
It was rare for the both of them to be on vacation at the same time, so Qin Chu suggested that they go to a spa resort somewhere in the countryside.
Huo Mian didn't agree to the suggestion as she wasn't in the mood for a spa.
"Hubby, can you go somewhere with me? It's a place that I really want to go to."
