Chapter 1714: The Twins Popping Right Out (5)
"Whoa＃ Twins. Your wife is awesome＃ You must be more considerate to her. It's not easy to be a woman. Just as the saying goes, 'A woman is a princess for one day, a queen for ten months and a servant for the rest of her life'. She's a princess only on her wedding day and is a queen for the ten months of pregnancy. But after the baby is born, alas, her figure will lose its shape and more importantly, she will put lots of her energy into taking care of the baby＃"
The old lady babbled away.
Huo Mian said with a smile, "Madam, you're right. Children are always on their parents' mind. We give all our love to them just to hear they call us Dad or Mom."
Huo Mian quoted a line from the song Where does the Time Go.
After chatting with the old lady for a while, Huo Mian walked further inside with help from Su Yu.
When they came under the wishing tree, Huo Mian looked up at the prayer ribbons all over the branches.
"Which one are you looking for? The one that you wrote yourself?" Su Yu asked.
"No. I want to find the one written by Qin Chu," Huo Mian said mildly.
"Got it. I'll help you."
Without another word, Su Yu immediately walked up and began to search among the ones on the lower branches; then he stood on his toes to read the ones on the higher branches.
After more than twenty minutes, he finally found Qin Chu's prayer ribbon among more than 1,000 ribbons on the tree.
On it was Qin Chu's elegantly written name; his handwriting was very good.
Su Yu took it down carefully; without reading it, he handed it to Huo Mian.
Huo Mian opened it eagerly; looking at Qin Chu's familiar handwriting on it, she was full of emotions.
Since the prayer ribbon wasn't big, Qin Chu had written in small characters, and it contained three wishes.
Huo Mian almost fell apart when she saw the words Qin Chu had written.
Her tears flowed down without control.
Su Yu was immediately alarmed by her weeping.
"Huo Mian, what's wrong? Why are you crying?" Su Yu walked up and asked.
Huo Mian remained silent, but the tears continued to gush out of her eyes.
Su Yu couldn't bear it anymore and grabbed the prayer ribbon from her hand.
He froze when he saw Qin Chu's three wishes.
On the ribbon was written, "Qin Chu and Huo Mian will be together forever; Qin Chu and Huo Mian will be together forever; Qin Chu and Huo Mian will be together forever."
All three of Qin Chu's wishes were about Huo Mian, wishing he would be with her forever＃
But now, they hadn't received a word about Qin Chu for months and didn't know whether he was alive or dead.
They didn't even get his body out; how could Huo Mian remain hopeful?
With the pray ribbon in his hands, Su Yu was wondering how to comfort Huo Mian when she suddenly turned and ran off.
"Huo Mian, where are you going? Come back＃" Scared, Su Yu knew something bad would happen and raced after her.
Despite her big belly, Huo Mian was familiar with the terrain of the temple and ran fast.
She stopped suddenly after running for dozens of steps; then she moved forward at a slower pace.
Su Yu turned white the moment he caught sight of her.
She was standing on the edge of a cliff.
Without any protective fences on the edge, she stood on a cliff hundreds of meters high.
Anyone would shatter to pieces if they fell.
Su Yu watched as the emotional Huo Mian moved closer to the edge of the cliff.
He was scared senseless.
"Huo Mian, what do you think you are doing?" Su Yu roared in fury.
