Chapter 1626: I Know He’s Still Alive (7)
"Yes, congratulations!" Su Yu gave Huo Mian his sincere blessing.
Huo Mian's heart filled with happiness at the thought of two little lives growing inside her.
When they reached C City, it was already 1 PM in the afternoon.
After they got off the plane, a driver from Imperial Star drove over Su Yu's favorite car, his black Lamborghini.
Su Yu then drove Huo Mian straight to a high-class restaurant.
Everyone was waiting for them at the entrance. There was Wei Liao, Tang Chuan, Jiang Xiaowei, Zhixin, Zhu Lingling, Gao Ran, Ni Yang, Chen Jie...
Huo Mian's eyes welled up at the sight of everyone.
The feeling of reuniting with all of her friends was overwhelming. Although she hadn't been in jail for long, it felt like a lifetime.
"Look! Our genius is back!" Tang Chuan teased.
Everyone stood in a line as they watched Huo Mian, all smiling.
"What a grand welcome..." Huo Mian smiled at everyone as she got off the car.
"Mian＃ here, walk over this brazier to get rid of the bad vibes." Zhu Lingling was superstitious. She had made a point to buy a brazier the day before, making sure that it was all fired up.
Huo Mian carefully stepped over the brazier...
Everyone began clapping...
Zhixin immediately rushed towards her, hugging her neck tightly.
"Sis＃ I was so worried. I miss you so much!" Zhixin couldn't hold back his tears any longer.
He almost fell apart when he found out about his sister's death sentence...
He couldn't eat or drink since and had since gotten much skinnier.
"Sorry to make you worry so much..." Huo Mian patted Zhixin's head lovingly.
She then looked up and gazed over everyone's faces. With a smile, she bowed down to everyone. "Sorry for worrying everyone."
"Geez＃ what are you saying? No need to be so polite with us."
Zhu Lingling immediately walked up to Huo Mian and held her hands.
"Let's go celebrate you coming back!"
With that, everyone entered the restaurant and made their way up to the private room on the top floor.
Not far from here was a black Buick GL8. Inside sat Huo Siqian, who was quietly watching the group of people head inside the restaurant.
"Sir＃ should we grab Miss Huo?"
Huo Siqian was slightly stunned by the news of Huo Mian's pregnancy.
Another thing happened outside of his plan...
It was another accident＃ Su Yu had already infuriated him by destroying his perfect plan, and Huo Mian's pregnancy was clearly another unpleasant surprise.
"Mian＃ I really don't want you to have this child＃ what should I do?"
Huo Siqian furrowed his brows...
He didn't want Huo Mian to give birth to any other man's child, but he also didn't have the heart to hurt her...
"Sir, what should we do now?"
"Let me think."
He then signaled the driver to go. The black Buick slowly drove away without gaining any attention.
- Inside the private room -
The group of people took their seats. On Huo Mian's left was Zhixin and on her right, Zhu Lingling, then Gao Ran, then Ni Yang and Chen Jie.
Next to Zhixin was Jiang Xiaowei, Wei Liao, Su Yu, Tang Chuan...
After the dishes were served, Huo Mian looked to Zhu Lingling and said, "Can I borrow your phone for a second?"
"I want to call Rick. He's been helping Qin Chu and me out so much＃ we need him here for this."
Upon hearing this, everyone's expression changed ever so slightly...
