Chapter 1477: Huo Mian, Let’s Get a Divorce (8)
"Meet me this afternoon at 4:30 PM at Tianhai Road, Duoqin Harbor."
Having said that, Huo Siqian hung up without even letting Qin Chu respond.
When Qin Chu walked back into the hospital room, his expression didn't look normal.
Huo Mian waited until her father-in-law was done with his IV and was covered with a blanket before quietly pulling Qin Chu aside.
"What's up? Who called you just now?"
"A really important client," answered Mr. Qin calmly.
"Impossible, what client can make you change your face like that, was that Huo Siqian?"
Even Qin Chu felt guilty. Was it good having a wife who was too smart? It always felt tiring.
He needed to worry about being caught even with the smallest lie.
"Then who was that?"
"You don't know him."
"There's someone that I don't know? Are you having an affair?"
"No," said Mr. Qin in all seriousness.
"Hmm, whatever. Even joking around with you is boring. You have no sense of romance."
Qin Chu was speechless.
Was that really a joke? Why did it seem to Qin Chu that he was being forced to confess?
After Qin Chu left to go to the company, Huo Mian went to Jiang Xiaowei's home.
Ever since the Wei Family learned the gender of the unborn baby, Jiang Xiaowei had been treated like a revered ancestor.
If she wanted to eat fish from the North Sea, then there wouldn't be any from the South Sea.
If she wanted to have wild ginseng, they would only buy the highest grade on the market.
In other words, aside from being confined, Jiang Xiaowei words were basically the order of an empress. But still, with no freedom, she became a bit short-tempered.
Wei Liao didn't have any other options and could only call Zhu Lingling and Huo Mian to visit more often, so they could keep Xiaowei company.
Xu Changzhi's affair hadn't been solved yet and rumors had it that ICAC was already keeping an eye on Qin Chu.
Therefore, Qin Chu knew that Huo Siqian calling for a meet up at such a sensitive moment wasn't be a good thing.
But it wouldn't be a trap either.
After all, it would be during the daytime and also on the beach, what risks would there be?
That afternoon, Qin Chu drove alone to Duoqin Harbor in his inconspicuous Audi A8L.
Duoqin Harbor was the most beautiful beach along the coast and was one of the properties under the GK Corporation.
It was extremely brazen for Huo Siqian to set the meeting spot on Qin Chu's territory, which also made Qin Chu a bit uneasy.
Qin Chu, wearing a black cashmere jacket, walked over to the beach in a gentlemanly manner.
The beach was freezing cold during March, so no one went there.
One wave hitting the coast made people feel like it was completely freezing out.
It was around four in the afternoon, when the sun was almost setting. The scenery wasn't too good, which only made people feel dreary.
Huo Siqian was wearing an eye-catching pink suit.
He arrived there two minutes earlier than Qin Chu and when Qin Chu arrived, he was staring into the distance by himself.
"You are here." Huo Siqian greeted.
Qin Chu didn't answer.
"Look, isn't the sunset gorgeous? Just like the poem goes, 'the setting sun seems so sublime, but it is near its dying time'. But Qin Chu, you've been the star for so long, and it's time for your dusk to come＃"
"What do you mean?" Qin Chu looked at Huo Siqian coldly.
"What I meant was＃ Your era is coming to an end."
"Ha-- Did you forget to take your medicine before leaving home?" Qin Chu thought Huo Siqian was insanely self-centered.
With nothing even happening, he had already started to daydream.
"Trust me, I will fulfill my promise."
"I don't have time to listen to your crazy talk. I'm a busy man, so you'd better keep it short. Plus, if you think teaming up with those old men in the real estate industry and threatening me with Xu Changzhi can beat me, then you are too na?ve."
Qin Chu already flipped the situation, so he didn't care about Huo Siqian's despicable methods and wasn't the least bit afraid of him. The only reason he didn't attack back was his father's illness, so he didn't feel like bothering with Huo Siqian.
"You've got it wrong. I didn't expect to use those methods to beat you. They were no more than appetizers. More interesting stuff is coming up."
"What tricks are you trying to play now?" Qin Chu glared at Huo Siqian, who replied, "Cancel your wedding on the 28th."
"Are you joking?" Qin Chu laughed coldly.
"I want to see the two of you divorce."
"Huo Siqian, are you daydreaming and spouting bullshit?" Even though he was a person with a calm temperament, Qin Chu was forced to swear.
It was easily seen that Mr. Qin was extremely angry.
Cancel the wedding ceremony? Get a divorce? These demands all crossed his bottom line and were completely unacceptable.
