Chapter 1599: The Situation Has Gone Out of Control (10)
Mo Xue'er scoffed. "That's never going to happen. Huo Mian's his baby. He'd let anyone die but he'd save her."
Jiang Ye raised his brows. "Wow, I can't believe someone as selfish as Huo Siqian can like someone this much."
Feeling a distaste in her mouth, Mo Xue'er said, "He's the kind of man who values memories. Some people are very nostalgic. The older someone or something is, the more they value them..."
Mo Xue'er couldn't help but feel bitter at the fact that Huo Mian and Huo Siqian grew up together.
"Haha＃ that's good news for you! Once you're old and in your 80's, Huo Siqian will remember you too!" Jiang Ye teased.
"Go away＃ jerk＃ what are you saying? I don't even want him to remember me. I just wish he can treat me a little better＃ All these years＃ Forget it, I don't want to talk about him. It pisses me off."
"How do you think Huo Siqian's going to save Huo Mian? Is he going to find someone else to take the blame for her? Or＃ maybe he'll surrender himself? Haha."
"Surrender himself? That's hilarious. How stupid do you think he is?" Mo Xue'er gave Jiang Ye scornful look.
"I'm really curious. At this point, how is he going to control the situation? After all, Huo Siqian didn't expect that Huo Mian would be so extreme."
Mo Xue'er turned and looked at Jiang Ye. With a smile, she said, "You seem to really care about what happens to Huo Mian. Why? Can't forget her?"
"Haha＃ you know I'm like this. I always think about people I can't have." Jiang Ye laughed.
"I don't know how Huo Siqian plans to save Huo Mian. I can't think of it, and I don't want to think of it. Anyways, we can only watch the events unfold. It's not something we should involve ourselves in. The water is too deep. The Qin Family wants to save her, the Su Family wants to save her, and the Huo Family＃ Haha＃ anyway, with so many people watching, it'll be a great show. I'm thinking, what if Huo Mian died quietly in jail? What if they find a corpse when they try to save her? How amazing would that be?"
"Tsk, tsk＃ Xue'er, you really are vicious."
"Don't you know that you shouldn't mess with a woman? I was never nice to begin with＃ Anyway, I don't care what happens to Huo Mian. It'll be better if she dies, but if she lives, luck's really on her side." Mo Xue'er took in a sharp inhale of her cigarette as she said this.
- On the top floor office of the Huo Corporation -
It was the end of a busy day. The sun had set and the sky was dark; the entire building became quiet as well.
Huo Siqian sipped on a glass of red wine as the tunes of Ah-Sang's Loneliness Is Singing filled his office.
"The night has arrived, loneliness creeping in, the heart begins to bleed."
"Loving for so long, years since we've met, how am I still alive."
Huo Siqian's mood had been low for a while now; he smiled a lot less than he used to.
Suddenly, there was a knock on his door...
"Where are the photos?"
"They're all here." His lackey handed him a yellow folder; Huo Siqian put down his wineglass and took a bunch of photos out from it.
There were more than 20 photos, all of Huo Mian.
Everyone was different, but all of their backgrounds revealed that they were taken in prison.
Huo Siqian picked up the photographs one by one, his gaze softening.
"She got thinner＃ is she not eating well?"
"No, no, no, I've checked, Miss Huo's eating very well. As per your request, there are guards especially there to take care of her. Every meal includes four dishes and one soup. It's just that＃ Miss Huo doesn't seem to want to eat. She eats very little."
"That's normal. If I were to lock you up, you probably wouldn't want to eat either."
The lackey didn't dare to respond...
"Any news from prison?"
