Chapter 1553: Only Huo Mian Was Still Trying (4)
"I'm fine, I went to get food with Su Yu." Huo Mian smiled.
"Dude, how could you not tell us that you were dining with the beauty? You made my wife so worried for nothing," Wei Liao jokingly said to Su Yu.
"I'd have no appetite if I told animals like you," Su Yu replied.
Huo Mian held Xiaowei's hand and said, "Xiaowei, I'm sorry for making you guys worried. You should go home, it's too late. You're having a baby soon too."
"Mian, sleep at my place tonight." Jiang Xiaowei was still worried.
"It's okay, it's safe here. I can't sleep on stranger's beds, I always lose sleep at your place, ha＃"
Huo Mian insisted a few times before everyone agreed to let her stay at Sky Blessing Court alone.
"Mian, the court hearing is in two days."
Gao Ran's voice was hoarse; he had been working day and night in order to free Qin Chu.
However, his efforts were in vain. Even his father couldn't amend the situation, which fueled his anxiety.
He even had an IV needle on the back of his hand＃ it seemed like Gao Ran was sick.
Huo Mian didn't want to cause anyone any more trouble.
"I'm a bit tired now, I'll go rest. I have a lot of stuff to take care of tomorrow at the company＃ You guys should go get some sleep too. We'll meet in front of the courthouse in two days."
"Okay, rest well." Zhu Lingling nodded.
"Mian, if you feel unsafe, call me immediately. I'll get a chauffeur to pick you up," Jiang Xiaowei worriedly reminded Huo Mian.
Su Yu was the last one to leave after everyone else left.
"Will you really be okay?" he asked her once again.
"I'll be going then."
"Mhm, right, wait up," Huo Mian called Su Yu.
He turned around.
"About the liquid explosive＃" Before Huo Mian could finish her sentence, Su Yu finished it for her, "I won't tell anyone."
"Smart boy, goodnight." Huo Mian smiled.
When he left Sky Blessing Court, Su Yu was feeling depressed and ended up driving to one of the nightclubs to drink with Tang Chuan...
"What, weren't you with Huo Mian the entire evening? What's with the face?" Tang Chuan smiled.
"Depressed my ass. Say, why don't you make Huo Mian yours using this opportunity? Qin Chu's behind bars, this is your chance."
"Go away, don't talk about this with me."
"Oh you＃ You're such a coward＃ In my opinion, you'll never get Huo Mian." Tang Chuan disagreed with Su Yu's way of pursuing Huo Mian at times.
He much preferred the old Su Yu...
The old Su Yu was arrogant, domineering, and would go after whatever he wanted. If he couldn't have it, he would rip it out of the others' hands. He had the personality of a pirate.
However, facing Huo Mian, Su Yu was as timid as a kitten. He couldn't do anything other than mourn to himself.
Upon hearing Tang Chuan's rant, Su Yu remained silent and drank...
He felt sorry for Huo Mian, who carried the burden on her own.
The situation was so terrible, but she still forced out smiles and persisted.
Sometimes, he selfishly wished that Huo Mian would break down, so he would have a reason to share her burden.
- The next morning -
Su Yu had her car delivered, and Huo Mian drove straight to GK Headquarters.
Huo Siqian's malicious purchase of GK's stocks had struck fear in every employee's heart.
Some investors took the chance to betray the company, selling their shares to Huo Siqian at a high price.
Huo Mian was turning pale from the anger...
"Young Madam, what should we do now? The company can't hold on much longer＃" Yang hesitantly asked.
"Young Madam, should we look to finance our company like the other ones are doing?" Bella tentatively suggested.
