Chapter 1737: Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (8)
"It's just that＃ Su Yu ended up taking them and selling them at an extremely low price... Sir, I think it's an insult to you... Shall we...?"
"No... Su Yu is someone... we can't piss off for the time being... The Su Family is not as simple as you think."
Hearing that the gifts for Huo Mian's babies were sold by Su Yu at a very low price, Huo Siqian was quite upset, but he didn't get angry.
He continued to tap his right hand gently on the handle of the car, seeming to be thinking of something.
Mian was a smart girl; did she understand what he just said?
How great would it be if his provocation worked? That way, Mian might move out in a fit of anger.
At that time, it wouldn't be that hard for him to see her＃
The next step was to clear Mian of the crime she didn't commit...
After all, Song Qingguo had already fallen, and nobody would stop this, so it would be much easier for him to do it now.
"Go and find a scapegoat for me... and say that he is the murderer of Song Yishi. He kidnapped Huo Mian's family and threatened Huo Mian to admit that she is the killer... Actually, it has nothing to do with her... Hand in all the evidence we have, and... remember to hand them to Director Zhao of the Procuratorate, as I have a very good relationship with him."
Huo Siqian then fell silent; he tilted his head and gazed out into the dark night...
He always felt that Qin Chu should be coming back soon. The feeling in his heart was getting stronger and stronger.
An epic battle was about to unfold...
- Inside the Military hospital -
After visiting the babies and Mian, people left one after another.
Huo Mian finished her meal in the evening, but just when she wanted to lie down and rest...
She heard someone knocking at the door...
A girl wearing a white dress came in. She had beautiful features and long flowy hair.
"Xixi... Why are you here?"
"I heard you gave birth... Then I was worried that I might not be allowed to come in, so I called Mr. Su..." Xixi said timidly.
"Ha, how did you get Su Yu's phone number?" Huo Mian had to admit that she really was something.
"My sister is an artist under Imperial Star... I got the phone number from her. Mr. Su is so nice, he went to pick me up at the door right after he got my phone call."
"Sit down here, Xixi." Huo Mian was very enthusiastic.
Huo Mian still liked Xixi very much, and she had also witnessed the ups and downs of the relationship between her and Rick; she knew how they fell in love and was one of the first to know about their break-up.
"I bought these gifts for the babies. They're not very valuable, but I hope you like them."
Xixi then took out two sets of big, pink gift bags for the newborns.
Obviously, she chose the gifts very carefully＃
"What do you mean? How can I blame you for that? I'm so glad you came to see me..." Huo Mian chuckled.
"Where are the babies?" Xixi looked around but didn't see the twins anywhere.
"They are taking a bath right now, and then they'll go swimming and get weighted."
"Oh, oh... This is so amazing, you're already a mother of two cotton jackets... (TL Note: used to describe daughters as they are soft and warm) I really envy you, Huo Mian. You're a true winner in life." Xixi looked at Huo Mian with admiration.
"No, I am not... Life is not perfect. Eight or nine out of ten things don't turn out as planned. I have my own troubles too, but at the end of the day God didn't forsake me. Now, I have two wonderful daughters, and I'm satisfied with what I have＃ but I'm not worth admiring. Life gives back what it takes away from you, right? I'm not a winner, I'm just trying my best to live the life I want to."
"You always sound so rational, listening to you is like reading chicken soup for the soul. I always learn a lot from you... By the way, Huo Mian, did you name the twins yet?" Xixi asked with a smile.
