Chapter 1790: Darkness Dissipates; The King Returns (11)
Su Yu bit down on his lip and didn't say a word. To be honest, he thought that he had a high chance of success as well.
Three years had passed, so Huo Mian should have already put everything from before behind her.
After all, Qin Chu was now only a man of the past. Over the past three years, almost no one ever mentioned Qin Chu to Huo Mian anymore.
"To be honest, I don't want to force her into anything. If she doesn't reject me just so I don't feel embarrassed, then I will actually feel disappointed."
"Please, Young Master Su, don't be so sentimental. In the current situation, as long as Huo Mian says yes to your proposal, you're good. Why care about the reason behind it? Don't think too much. Besides, love will come in time. I think after you two get married, she will fall in love with you sooner or later. I feel like the twins are already treating you as their dad."
After hearing this, Su Yu felt happiness rise to his heart.
The twins did have a good relationship with him and he actually treated them like his own.
What Tang Chuan said was right. Even if he did this selfishly and took advantage of the fact that Huo Mian didn't want to reject him in front of everyone, then maybe she would say yes to his proposal.
After the twins' birthday party was over, they could move on to preparing their wedding.
Su Yu never thought that happiness could be this close to him one day.
Everyone but Huo Mian knew about his proposal
Zhu Lingling and Jiang Xiaowei were also cheering Su Yu on.
"Young Master Su, don't be nervous. You'll be fine!" Zhu Lingling smiled.
"Yes, we will all witness this blessed moment together," said Jiang Xiaowei as she held Wei Yunchu in her arms.
"Mommy, what are you talking about? What blessed moment?" the little boy looked up and asked Jiang Xiaowei.
"You will see later. Your Uncle Su is going to do something unbelievable tonight," said Jiang Xiaowei with a smile as she gently pinched her son's face.
Huo Mian was sitting next to Yang Meirong. While watching the performance in the center of the stage, she felt her mind wander.
For some reason, her left eyelid had been twitching like crazy ever since she woke up this morning.
She started feeling uncomfortable and thought that something big was going to happen. She hasn't felt like this in a long time.
"What's wrong, Mian?" Her mom noticed that something was off with Huo Mian.
"Maybe I'm feeling a little seasick. Let me go out for some fresh air. Mom, take care of Little Bean and Pudding for a while."
"Sure, go get some rest."
After that, Huo Mian stood up and walked towards the door.
"President Huo, are you okay?" Bella caught up to Huo Mian and held her carefully by the arm.
Huo Mian nodded her head.
"President Huo, the US headquarters just sent a notice saying that Mr. Nick has arrived."
"Has arrived?" Huo Mian was a little shocked.
"Yes, he boarded the cruise already."
"Seriously? What the hell? Why didn't they tell us ahead of time? How can a big CEO from the HQ be so spontaneous yet lowkey!" Huo Mian felt speechless.
Mr. Nick was the newly-appointed CEO of GK Headquarters in the US. He mentioned a couple of times that he wanted to inspect the branch in China, but never came.
Why in the world was he here now, on the day of the twins' birthday? He boarded the boat without even telling anyone! Who would do that!
"So where is he now?"
"I already arranged for him to stay at the VIP lounge for the time being. You can go and greet him there."
Huo Mian massaged her temples and still felt a little dizzy.
She walked all the way to the VIP area with Bella, only to find the room completely empty.
"Oh, Mr. Nick went to the ballroom, he said he wanted to watch some performances."
"What the＃" Huo Mian immediately felt irritated.
"I'm sorry President Huo. It was my fault. I will go and look for him."
"No need. If he wants to watch performances, let him. I'm a little dizzy. I'm going to the deck for some fresh air, and he will be back in a bit."
Huo Mian then waved her hand and sent Bella away.
She grabbed a glass of wine and walked onto the deck slowly.
At this time, everyone was watching performances and it was unexpectedly quiet here.
She watched the distant sea, hearing the waves and feeling the ocean breeze.
Then she took a little sip of wine.
Her heart started to beat faster and faster; she felt like it was going to jump out of her body.
Huo Mian lifted her hand and pressed on her left chest.
"What's going on? What's wrong with me?" she murmured to herself.
The wine glass slipped out of her hand and fell towards the ground.
Suddenly, a black shadow appeared behind her.
A pair of white hands with long slender fingers gracefully caught the falling wine glass.
"Long time no see, Honey."
The familiar voice that she had been waiting for forever sounded in her ears. Find authorized novels in Webnovelㄛfaster updates, better experienceㄛPlease click for visiting.
Huo Mian immediately raised her head. After seeing that familiar face, she felt all the blood in her body freeze.
