Chapter 1701: Lingling Gets Married, Xiaowei Gives Birth (2)

"Su Yu# you have to understand that if we don't end up together, we won't be able to live together as friends. Sooner or later, you will get married and have children# and by then..."

Su Yu anxiously cut her off before she could finish, "What if I don't get married and have children? Isn't life good enough as it is?"

"Su Yu, that's not realistic."

"No, it is for me, I like my life now, and I'm willing to live like this forever. I don't want this to end# It's my choice, just say you'll live here forever, okay?" Su Yu asked as he looked at Huo Mian, his expression filled with anticipation.

In the end, Huo Mian bit down on her lips and replied softly, "I'm sorry, I can't say 'yes' to this. It doesn't matter if Qin Chu comes back, either way, I won't be able to live here forever# After all, this isn't my home, and my babies won't have 'Su' as their last name. I already have plans if Qin Chu doesn't come back. Right now I'm pregnant, so I don't have the energy to deal with Huo Siqian. But I plan on investigating him as soon as I give birth. I'm going to clear my own name and make the law punish him for what he did. After all, he's Song Yishi's real murderer. Therefore, I won't be able to live here forever, no matter what happens#"

Huo Mian knew that her words would probably hurt Su Yu 每 but what she said was the truth, and she never once gave Su Yu room to fantasize about a possible future for them.

This time was no different; she wasn't going to forget about Qin Chu just because he might be dead.

"Okay# I get it." Disappointment flashed before Su Yu's eyes.

"I'm sorry#"

"Don't say sorry, don't apologize to me# You did nothing wrong, I wasn't thinking properly# ha, right, you said you wanted to deal with Huo Siqian. But how do you know that he killed Song Yishi? Maybe he hired someone, why would he commit murder with his own hands?"

Su Yu had countless questions about Song Yishi's death, and he held a different opinion from Huo Mian.

Huo Mian believed that Huo Siqian killed Song Yishi with his own hands, and Mo Xue'er provided a fake alibi. There was no way he was with her on the night of Song Yishi's death.

Su Yu, on the other hand, believed that Huo Siqian hired a hitman. After all, the mastermind of a plan had no reason to murder someone with his own hands.

After some thought, Huo Mian sat down on the bamboo chair beside Su Yu and asked, "Do you remember how I stole the case materials from Lin Mingyu?"

"Mhm." Su Yu nodded.

"I read Song Yishi's autopsy, word by word# A normal killer won't choose to execute the murder this way, he would've just shot or knifed her. Why would the killer be so cruel in his methods?"

"Maybe the killer has a mental disorder?" Su Yu guessed.

"Even so, he wouldn't be able to dismember her body parts so perfectly# It's as hard as performing a flawless surgery, and it's too time-consuming. I think Huo Siqian did this, so he could leave evidence for the police and make them think that Qin Chu did it. Plus, it was also an act to provoke Qin Chu#"

"Provoke?" Su Yu repeated, unsure of what Huo Mian meant.
