Chapter 1443: Why is Getting Married so Hard? (4)
"We can't do that! Getting married is a big deal, these formalities can't be overlooked."
"Just listen to Dad, okay?" Qin Chu reached out and placed his hands over Huo Mian's.
After glancing around the room, Qin Yumin said in all seriousness, "After discussion, my wife and I decided to give three houses to Huo Mian, one in Hawaii, one in Suzhou, and an ocean-view villa in C City. They're all decorated, so you can live there whenever you want."
"Three houses＃ is too many." Huo Mian felt speechless; how rich were her in-laws to give her three mansions in three different locations?
Then, Qin Yumin continued, "I already asked our family lawyer to transfer the properties over to Huo Mian, they're hers now."
"Dad＃ don't I get anything?" Qin Chu chuckled.
"You get a wife!" Qin Yumin answered, and everyone laughed.
Qin Yumin went on, "We also think Mian should get a new car."
"Dad＃ I like my car," Huo Mian immediately said, and Qin Yumin nodded. "I know you like Audis, so we bought you a silver-grey Audi S8. It's very low-key, just the way you like it."
Huo Mian: "＃"
Mrs. Qin added, "We also bought you an Audi A8L and Q7, they're really easy to drive."
Huo Mian: "Three cars?"
Qin Yumin: "As for jewelry, we have our own GK Jewelry to choose from. We also bought a set of ruby crystals for Meirong."
Yang Meirong: "＃"
Mrs. Qin: "Mian, this is Qin Chu's grandmother's bracelet. It may look a little old-fashioned, but it's worth a lot. An American couple once offered me 120 million yuan for it, but I didn't sell it to them."
Huo Mian: "＃"
Qin Yumin: "Since we're giving Mian a few estates and cars, we're not going to give too much money, since they don't need it anyway. We prepared 88.88 million yuan for Huo Mian and will transfer it to her."
Huo Mian: "＃"
Mrs. Qin: "It's not a lot of money, but we'll continue treating Mian like our own."
Yang Meirong: "This is more than enough＃"
"Of course, since today is our official meeting before the wedding, we prepared something for the two of you."
Then, Qin Yumin took out two gold bank cards and handed Huo Mian one of them. "This one's for you, there's 999,900 yuan in there. I hope you and Chu will be together for a long time." (TL: in Chinese, '9' means 'a long time')
"Thanks, Dad." Huo Mian took the card, feeling a little emotional.
He handed the other card to Yang Meirong. "Meirong, take this as a greeting present, there's 666,600 yuan in there, I hope you can live smoothly in the future." (TL: in Chinese, '6' means 'smooth and successful')
"No, no, I can't accept this," Yang Meirong refused, but Qin Chu put the card in her bag. "Mom, take it, it's just a gesture."
"The passwords for both cards are six zeroes, you can change it later," Mrs. Qin added.
After lunch, Huo Mian didn't know if she was full, but she did know that she was filthy rich now.
Three mansions, three cars, 888.8 million yuan in cash, and a jade bracelet worth 120 million yuan.
Huo Mian felt like screaming to the world, "Yo, I'm filthy rich!"
After lunch, the Qin Family's chauffeur drove Yang Meirong back to Sky Blessing Court, while Huo Mian and Qin Chu stayed behind. They drank tea with the Qins and discussed wedding details.
They could see that Qin Yumin was in a good mood since he kept making suggestions and seemed as excited as a little kid.
At around 10 PM, the old couple became sleepy, so the young couple drove back to South Hill Manor.
On their way home, Huo Mian asked after some hesitation, "Honey, so you know about Dad's condition?"
"Doesn't he have high blood pressure?" Qin Chu had been busy recently. He knew that his father was hospitalized because of over exhaustion but didn't know any specifics.
"Honey＃ not only does he have high blood pressure, his CT scans showed a dark shadow in the middle of his brain."
Upon hearing this, Qin Chu suddenly stepped on the breaks and with a 'screech' and parked his car off to the side of the road.
