Chapter 1691: Witnessing Your Happiness (12)

"D-do# you want to give birth naturally or through C-section?"

"Ahem# why would you suddenly ask that?" Huo Mian was surprised to hear his question; it didn't seem like a question someone like Su Yu would ask.

"I heard someone mention this# Once you make your pick, I'll find you an obstetrics doctor."

"If the fetuses are in the correct position, their umbilical cords aren't tied around their necks, my body can withstand it, and they aren't overweight, I want to give birth naturally. It's a more natural way of reproduction."

"But I heard it really hurts# are you sure?" Su Yu asked, a little heartbroken.

"I'm not scared, I'm willing to do anything for my babies," Huo Mian replied, biting down on her lips.

"Okay, I got it. I'll talk to the doctors at the army hospital later and ask them to find you the best obstetrics doctor there is."

"Mhm." Huo Mian nodded; she didn't want to go through the process of thanking him, since Su Yu did too much for her. A mere 'thank you' wasn't going to cut it.

"Oh right, there's something else I wanted to talk to you about#" Su Yu said, suddenly remembering something else.

"What is it?"

"GK Film and Television stopped operating, and all the artists ran away. Ni Yang's ex-manager, Yingzi, took a bunch of people with her and signed with Huo Siqian. I heard he offered her double the signing bonus, so Ni Yang's the only one left at GK now. He didn't leave, but he also doesn't have any scheduled activities anymore. I was thinking maybe we should do something about it#" Su Yu explained the situation to Huo Mian in one breath, and the latter fell silent upon hearing this.

After a while, she looked up and asked, "Su Yu# can you sign Ni Yang? Offer him more money, and I'll make up for the extra amount. He's a good kid who deserves the best."

Huo Mian knew Ni Yang didn't leave because of her. Therefore, she felt guilty about his current situation.

"If he's willing, of course I'll sign him. Ni Yang's a superstar# Forget about the money, I was going to offer him a top-tier salary anyways. But the thing is, he might not want to join us. I think it's best if you talk to him."

"Yeah# can you bring him here tomorrow so I can talk to him?"


- 10 PM, at a club under the Huo Corporation - 

After dinner, Huo Siqian walked his clients out before heading back into a giant private room. He poured himself a glass of wine. "Any news? Did you find him?"


"Have you searched all the islands? Did you ask the fishermen? None of them rescued a man?" Huo Siqian demanded icily.

"We searched the islands and asked the fishermen, no one rescued anyone. Sir# maybe Qin Chu's really dead, are we being paranoid right now?"

"Keep looking, none of you can rest until you find his body."

Huo Siqian hadn't been sleeping well and always woke up with a start in the middle of the night. He kept dreaming that Qin Chu was stabbing him with a knife. It was definitely not a good omen. 

"How's the other matter I've asked you to do going?"

"It's underway# we're waiting for Song Qingguo to bite."

"Good# that asshole, I'm never going to let him hurt Mian again," Huo Siqian spat; then, he drank all the wine in his glass and slowly stood up. Suddenly, he remembered someone who didn't seem to be doing much recently. "Do you have news on Su Yu?"

"Su Yu goes back to the Su Family estate every day after work. He barely sees clients, and he usually asks the vice president to tend to his company's matters."

Huo Siqian knew Su Yu went home every day to see Huo Mian; at that moment, his entire body filled with jealousy.

With a 'crack', the wineglass in his hand broke into a million pieces#

In the past, he was jealous of Qin Chu; now, he was jealous of Su Yu. Why wasn't he the one beside Mian?

- Su Family Estate - 

After Huo Mian took a shower, she received a WeChat message on her phone.

It was from Zhu Lingling. "Girl# I talked to the stupid cop, we decided to get married on the 16th of next month. That day's a good day."

Upon seeing this message, Huo Mian immediately welled up with excitement#
