Chapter 1749: Retired After Winning Merit, Honourable Although Defeated (20)



It had been a while since she saw Director Wu, and Huo Mian felt nothing but warmth in her heart.

"It's been a while, Huo Mian. You're a mother of two now#" Director Wu wore a Mao suit, and his expression was stern, like it always was.Find authorized novels in Webnovelㄛfaster updates, better experienceㄛPlease click for visiting.

However, his eyes filled with a fatherly kindness when they looked at Huo Mian.

"Please, sit, I'll go make some tea," Huo Mian said, a little emotional.

Su Yu immediately went up and grabbed her arm. "I'll go and make the tea, you should stay here and talk to Director Wu.

"Okay, that's good." Huo Mian glanced at Su Yu gratefully#

The latter immediately ran into the kitchen to make tea, disregarding the fact that he was wearing a suit#

He did everything for them, from making tea to preparing snacks#

Huo Mian knew Su Yu was only this gentle because he was in love with her#

"Mian, I didn't come to see you not because you were accused of murder and I didn't want anyone to suspect me. Rather, I knew you were in a bad mood, so nothing I said would help. You're a smart person, you need time and space to think things through. I'm glad you did#"

"I understand, Director Wu# If you were worried that you'd be dragged into this, you could have ignored me. Chen Jie told me that you often asked her how I was doing when you visited the South Side. I'm grateful for that."

"After you left South Side, the neurology department hasn't found anyone good. I wanted to ask you if you could come back to work anytime soon."

"Haha, not at this moment. The twins are constant headaches, I don't even have enough time to sleep these days#"

"I understand# Sleep deprivation is normal with motherhood. Right, this is my gift to the twins, and that's Xiaoxue's," Director Wu said as he took two brocade boxes out from his bag.

Inside one of the boxes was a pair of gold locks, and inside the other was a pair of gold bracelets.

"I'm grateful that you even came, how can I accept these presents?" Huo Mian smiled.

"I know you don't need money, it's just a gesture. They're not expensive."

"Is Xiaoxue back in C City?" Huo Mian asked.

"No, but her daughter's old enough to speak# She's going to start kindergarten in a few months. The education there is pretty good."

"How is# Ning Zhiyuan? How's he doing with Xiaoxue now?"

"He changed completely after going to the U.S. He and Xiaoxue passed the exams and received their medical licenses. They opened a private clinic and are doing good. I went to the States a few months ago to see them; he's much more mature than before and treats Xinyue extremely well. He's even more considerate of Xiaoxue."

"That's amazing#" Huo Mian smiled.

"Huo Mian, it's been so long, and your twins are already born. Are you still unwilling to forget about Qin Chu?" Director Wu asked gently.


"I'll never forget about him." Huo Mian nodded in complete sincerity.

At this time, Su Yu walked out of the kitchen with the tea; upon hearing Huo Mian's answer, his expression faltered, ever so slightly.

Truth be told, he knew the answer to this question but hearing it still hurt like a thousand nails.

After placing down the tea and biscuits, he smiled at Huo Mian. "You guys chat, I'm going upstairs to check on the two princesses."

"Mhm." Huo Mian nodded.

Director Wu watched as Su Yu went upstairs; he said profoundly, "Huo Mian, if Qin Chu's really dead#"

"Director Wu, I know he's still alive," Huo Mian immediately interrupted Director Wu.
