Chapter 1604: Life on the Line (5)

Rick's action was shocking considering how crowded the crossing was.

Qin Chu didn't know what else to do but to follow Rick to Seductive Fox.

- In the top floor office - 

"What's up?" sitting on the couch, Qin Chu said with a low tone.

"Where were you headed just now?"

Qin Chu didn't respond.

"You were going to kill Huo Siqian, no?" Rick asked.

Qin Chu still didn't respond...

"This is what Huo Mian was worried about the most. She asked you over and over again not to, but you're doing it anyway. If you don't care about yourself, at least think about your wife."

"I'll save Mian after I kill him, they don't interfere with each other," Qin Chu calmly said.

"What if you mess up and die?" Rick was a little angry.

"You think that I'm afraid of dying?" Qin Chu raised his head and looked Rick in the eyes.

His eyes seemed like two bottomless oceans...

When Qin Chu was infuriated to his breaking point, he would still be as calm as a lagoon. This was what made him stand out from the rest.

You could also interpret it as the calm before the storm...

"You're not afraid of death and many people aren't scared of you dying. But did you ever stop and think what Huo Mian would do if you were dead?"

After some silence...

Qin Chu slowly said, "Even if I die, she'll still have Su Yu."

Right after he said that, Rick punched his handsome face.

The punch was hard and left Qin Chu no mercy.

His right cheek immediately puffed up...

"I never thought that you would say something as ridiculous and outlandish as this# Who do you think Huo Mian is? Do you think that she saves rebounds for herself? How could you say that she still has Su Yu after you die? Don't you feel like scum saying something like this?"

Rick never thought that Qin Chu would have such ridiculous thoughts in his head.

Qin Chu wiped away the blood at the corner of his mouth...

Then, he slowly said, "Rick, you might not realize it, but Huo Siqian is a gigantic threat to Mian. If he lives, he'll haunt Mian forever. I can't let him keep hurting her like this, so I can't show mercy# I have to kill him, I'm pretty confident in my skills. If I mess up, at worst we'll die together. I'll use my death to pay for a life of safety and peace for Mian. It's worth it for me."

"How could Huo Mian be at peace living a life without you?" Rick was furious.

"I said that Su Yu would take care of her# Even if she really wanted to die for me, that won't change anything# Rick, Chinese people believe in reincarnation, but I don't# Humans only live once, they don't live again. It's futile if Huo Mian died for me. I won't let her die, I have to make sure that she lives a good life# With or without me."

Rick fell completely silent upon hearing what Qin Chu said...

He finally understood it wasn't that Qin Chu didn't love Huo Mian enough, it was that he loved Huo Mian too much.

So, he had to rid her of a nightmarish presence like Huo Siqian in order to pave a way to a happy life for Huo Mian.

Qin Chu must tragically love Huo Mian to have such a selfish thought.

"You two are insane# She faked the crime to get you out of jail. You both think in each other's best interest and are willing to sacrifice yourselves#" Rick felt like screaming in annoyance.

"If I don't come back, Su Yu must have a way to save her. Mian will be fine."

After speaking, Qin Chu slowly rose...

Rick was just about to speak when he heard Qin Chu say, "If you really treat me as a friend and a brother, don't stop me. This is the path I chose. I am Huo Mian's man, not a coward."

"Okay, I won't stop you. Go," Rick said in a low tone.
