Chapter 1486: Huo Mian, Let’s Get a Divorce (17)
In the end, Huo Mian chose to remain silent. She had a lot of things in her closet, but she only took the ones she wore most frequently.
Then, she quietly headed downstairs without looking at Qin Chu 每 she was angry at him because she knew he was hiding something from her.
He refused to talk to her or discuss things with her before getting divorced. This infuriated her very much.
It was already midnight by the time the driver dropped Huo Mian off at Sky Blessing Court. She had the keys to her mother's house, so she didn't wake her up and instead walked right up to the second floor.
Once she went into her room, Huo Mian didn't feel sleepy at all＃ Instead of washing her face or taking a shower, she sat dumbly on the bed. She didn't want to miss Qin Chu's phone call if he changed his mind.
She quietly stared at her phone, but it didn't make a sound. She waited 30 minutes, but nothing.
He always used to ask her if she had arrived safely, but this time he didn't.
One minute, she was loved and the next minute, she was as irrelevant as a stranger.
Huo Mian knew Qin Chu wouldn't do something like this for no reason. He must've encountered something tricky.
Therefore, she called Gao Ran.
"Hello? Huo Mian＃" Gao Ran's sounded drowsy; it seemed like Huo Mian had woken him up from dreamland.
"Where are you right now?"
"Have you talked to Qin Chu recently?"
"Yeah, I called him a few days ago to hang out, but he was in a bad mood and took a raincheck."
"Then＃ do you know what kind of difficulties he's encountered recently?" Huo Mian asked.
"Does Xu Changzhi framing him and the ICAC investigating him count?" Gao Ran asked back.
"Is there anything else?"
"Uh＃ GK Film and Entertainment isn't doing well either, right? I heard Huo Corporation has been challenging it."
"Is there anything else other than company matters?" Huo Mian probed.
"That's it, you know everything I know and maybe even more! You're his wife＃ what's going on? Did something happen between you and Qin Chu?"
"Everything's fine, go back to sleep."
Huo Mian hung up to realize that not even Gao Ran knew what was going on. Therefore, she called Rick 每 the two of them were Qin Chu's best friends.
"Go ahead, Huo Mian."
"Did Qin Chu call you today?"
"Did＃ he tell you anything?"
"What's wrong?" Rick asked curiously, and Huo Mian replied, "Nothing."
It seemed like she was the first and only person who knew about the divorce.
Worried, Huo Mian decided to go look for answers tomorrow. Or maybe she should hire a private investigator?
Qin Chu was too calm and careful, and he would never ask for a divorce for no apparent reason.
Huo Mian had a feeling that something happened to him＃
At the thought of the cruel words Qin Chu just said, Huo Mian felt her heartache.
That night, she didn't sleep at all. She stared at her phone, hoping that Qin Chu would call her to say, "Honey, I'm sorry, I was just kidding."
She would rather the entire thing be just an awful prank＃
Rick was having a midnight dinner with Xixi at a dim sum restaurant when he received Huo Mian's phone call. Therefore, he quickly drove Xixi home and called Qin Chu. The latter's phone was off, so he went straight to South Hill Manor, where Qin Chu brought him down to the underground cellar.
The cellar was decorated like a coffee shop, filled with precious wines, liquors, and baijiu from every country.
Qin Chu poured Rick and himself some white wine. Then, he downed his entire glass.
Upon seeing how off Qin Chu was being, Rick couldn't help but ask, "What happened between you guys? Huo Mian just called me, she sounded really distressed. It seemed like she was trying to get information from me."
