Chapter 1634: I Know He’s Still Alive (15)
At that moment, she felt like the sky was collapsing and the world was coming to an end.
She couldn't think, nor could she react.
"Huo Mian, I'm really sorry. I've let you down. You trusted me, and I＃" Rick sunk his head even lower as regret filled his face.
After a while, Huo Mian calmed down and said, "Not knowing his whereabouts is good news. You not being able to find him means that he's fine. Right?"
"Huo Mian＃" Rick looked up in surprise.
"Rick, don't blame yourself. You will always be our friend. When we are in need, you never watched on the sidelines. The fact that the plane exploded was not something you could have predicted. So please don't feel bad, because I still believe Qin Chu is alive."
Upon hearing what Huo Mian said, Rick felt even worse.
"Thank you for telling me about this news, but I think Qin Chu might have something more important that he needs to do. Once he's done, he will come and find me. In the meantime, I won't be worried, and I won't feel sad, because I will be waiting right here for his return." As Huo Mian finished speaking, she put a palm on her belly and gently murmured to the babies and herself, "Daddy will be alright, right guys?"
At that moment, Rick, who always considered himself to be a cold-blooded killer, almost broke out in tears.
"Huo Mian, I＃" Thousands of words ran through Rick's mind, but at that moment, Rick didn't know what else to say other than how sorry he was, how much he blamed himself, and how much regret he felt.
"Rick, remember to tell Xixi to visit me when she's free. She's such an innocent and cute girl, I really like her. Be good to her, and don't let her down. I can tell she really cares about you."
"Okay, when she's on break, I will definitely bring her here. Huo Mian, take care of yourself."
"I will. I'm not alone anymore, I have my babies now. I will take care of them while I wait for Qin Chu's return."
Rick walked out of Huo Mian's room with mixed feelings.
"How is she? What's her emotional state?" Su Yu asked anxiously.
"You should go in and see for yourself." Rick walked out of the hospital with an unspeakable amount of heaviness in his heart.
Su Yu dwelled upon the door for a long while before finally deciding to knock and see for himself.
"Hey, you're here." Huo Mian smiled.
"You＃?" Su Yu looked up with surprise, surprised by Huo Mian's calm expression.
"Did you want to ask me if Rick told me about Qin Chu?"
"Yes." Su Yu nodded.
"So＃ You＃?" Su Yu didn't know how to continue.
"I'm fine. I believe Qin Chu is still alive. You guys are too pessimistic. Really, I'm fine," Huo Mian said nothing for a moment, and then she continued, "By the way, come and try this Chrysanthemum tea I made, I think it's rather good." As she finished speaking, Huo Mian poured a cup of tea for Su Yu.
Su Yu was at a loss of what he should do as he was confused by Huo Mian's state of being.
"Don't worry about me, I'm very strong. I'm pregnant, you know! I'm the mother of two now, I can't just be devastated and cry my eyes out."
"Huo Mian, stay strong." Su Yu was really at a loss for words of comfort.
"Of course." Huo Mian smiled once more. But for some reason, Huo Mian's bright smile left him feeling uneasy and burned a hole through his heart. He knew that behind those splendid smiles were a devastating amount of sadness.
"How are you feeling today?" Su Yu asked warily.
