Chapter 1461: You Guys Won’t Be Able to Kill Me (2)
"I heard something happened at your company＃ Take this money, it's Imperial Star's backup funds. I'll ask my dad to give your company a loan tonight. Then, you guys will have enough money to climb back up."
Su Yu's words sounded extremely sincere and he referred to GK as 'your company' rather than 'your husband's company'. The way he talked made Huo Mian feel extremely comfortable 每 it meant that he treated her as a friend.
"Su Yu, I can't take this money. It's too much."
"You've got to be kidding me, 1 billion yuan isn't too much. You guys are on the edge of bankruptcy, so you'll have to fill the hole with money. Huo Siqian is such a f*cking bastard, I can't just sit there and do nothing＃"
"Even so, I can't take your money," Huo Mian replied slowly, and he looked up at her face. "Is it because of Qin Chu?"
Upon hearing this, Huo Mian fell silent.
"The truth is, I know others might gossip about you guys for taking my money, but you've got to weigh the pros and cons here, it's not the time to worry about losing face. Plus, if you don't tell others, no one will know that I gave you money, and you don't have to pay me back in a hurry. Just pay me when you've survived this crisis, and I don't need interest. What do you think?"
Su Yu really wanted to help Huo Mian, so he prepared this 1-billion-yuan check beforehand. He didn't even need her to write him a receipt, because he trusted her with all his heart.
"Still, I can't accept this money＃ I know my husband, he's a prideful man, just like me. Neither of us wants to take your money＃ After all, we were involved in scandals before, so I don't want anyone to blow this out of proportion＃ Thank you for this generous gesture, and I get where you're coming from. Really, Su Yu, thank you＃"
"Huo Mian＃" Su Yu still wanted to say something, but Huo Mian cut him off with a smile on her face, trying to spare each other the awkwardness. "Waitress, can I get a menu please? I'm so hungry."
"You want to eat here? Should we go somewhere else?" Su Yu glanced around; this was a coffee shop, not a restaurant.
"It's fine, I'm too lazy to go somewhere else. You're treating though, right?" Huo Mian beamed, and Su Yu felt his heart beating rapidly＃
"Why aren't you saying anything?" Huo Mian tilted her head and asked Su Yu upon seeing how quiet he was being.
Su Yu's face blushed. "Um＃ nothing."
Huo Mian glanced at the menu and realized there wasn't much to eat. "I'd like a medium-well sirloin steak, fries, a fruit salad, onion rings, and a warm milk tea. Thank you."
"What about you, sir?" The waitress looked at Su Yu, who had no idea what to eat. Therefore, he decided to order the exact same thing, "Um＃ I'll have whatever she's having."
Huo Mian shopped all morning, so she was quite hungry and ate a lot.
Su Yu, on the other hand, didn't have much of an appetite and stole glances at Huo Mian while they ate; it was so rare for him to eat alone with her.
Although Huo Mian didn't accept his money, he felt incredibly satisfied because he got to have lunch with her, even hoping for time to pass slower so his happiness could last a tiny bit longer.
After lunch, Huo Mian called the waitress over, "Check please."
"The total is 588 yuan."
"Take out your wallet, Dude, why are you looking at me? I'm not buying," Huo Mian laughed as she wiped her mouth off and reminded Su Yu, who was staring at her in a daze.
