Chapter 1533: I Will Forever Protect Mr. Qin (4)
"No," Su Yu replied faintly before adding, "Not until I die."
Upon hearing this, Huo Mian fell silent.
"Huo Mian, don't ask me to forget you, I don't want to do that＃ I don't want to forget you, no matter what happens. Your appearance in my life is a gift from God so please, don't strip that away from me."
Last time, when Huo Mian took Qin Chu's bullet out of his chest, she went into the operating room prepared to die.
Before she did that, she asked Su Yu to forget about her with the bullet shell he gave her.
It may be a liberation to Huo Mian but to Su Yu, it was a cruel request＃
Even now, his heart ached from thinking about what happened back then.
"Mhm, I won't. If you want to remember me, just remember me." Huo Mian didn't act selfish anymore, because she now understood the emotions Su Yu had towards her.
"Come on, finish your food. It's getting cold," Su Yu changed the topic. Then, he smiled and went back to eating.
Huo Mian wasn't in a good mood, so she drank more than half a bottle of baijiu.
She held the wineglass in her hand and sighed quietly, "Su Yu, did you know that at one time, I thought Qin Chu and I would never be together? Back then, I thought perhaps I should settle and just be an ordinary person. I was determined to forget the past and marry Ning Zhiyuan. But, he suddenly came back into my life and changed everything. In the beginning, I was mad at him＃ I still liked him, but thought he was too selfish, coming and going as he wished. Who did he think he was? After I found out the truth, I realized that there wasn't a lot I could do for Qin Chu. Rather, he's done so much for the two of us＃"
Su Yu didn't say anything as he looked at Huo Mian silently＃ Her eyes twinkled like stars, and they emitted an irresistible charm when she spoke.
Su Yu treasured these alone times with Huo Mian, because each time could be the last. Therefore, he chose to not interrupt her and just quietly listen to her talk.
Huo Mian wasn't usually talkative, but her current mood and the alcohol allowed her to open her heart up to Su Yu and talk to him.
"I broke up with him seven years ago," Huo Mian laughed; now thinking back, she sure was stubborn.
"So you dumped him?" Su Yu smiled.
"Yeh＃ back then, I thought his parents orchestrated the death of Uncle Jing, and my mother hated me＃ I also despised myself and ended up directing that hatred towards Qin Chu＃ During the graduation ceremony, we were going to announce to the school that we would be going to the States for university, but that evening I broke up with him in front of all the teachers and students."
"He must've been shocked." Su Yu felt bad for Qin Chu; he must've been devastated. After all, young people were more impulsive and emotional.
"He was＃ Moreover, I said a lot of mean things to him. I wanted to break things off with him, because no matter how great our love was, there was a bloody human life stuck between us. This incident haunted me for seven years＃ and I constantly felt out of breath from all the guilt. Qin Chu, on the other hand, was forced to go to the States alone for seven years. I only found out later that he left because he made a bet with his dad. He was willing to leave the country for seven years just to come back and spend the rest of his life with me＃"
"So Qin Chu's dream back then was＃?" Su Yu felt touched by what he heard.
