Chapter 1798: Darkness Dissipates; The King Returns (19)
"He was originally going to propose to you after the twins' performance, and he even bought a ring＃ I bet he's devastated right now. Even if you don't like him, but over the last few years, he＃"
Huo Mian interrupted Zhu Lingling before the latter could finish. "I get it. I'll go find him right now, stay with Qin Chu and the twins."
Huo Mian was truly surprised to hear from Zhu Lingling that Su Yu was going to propose 每 no one mentioned it to her. No wonder she couldn't see Su Yu anywhere; he was probably trying to recover from the emotional rollercoaster.
He prepared so long for this celebration and the proposal, but everything vaporized along with Qin Chu's return.
The truth was, Huo Mian felt bad. She hated hurting him, and that was why she never gave him a chance or a slim hope over the last four years. But...
Huo Mian whispered into Qin Chu's ear, "I'll be right back, take care of the twins."
"Mhm." Qin Chu immediately understood what Huo Mian was going to go.
Tang Chuan was infuriated, so he stood up and left when he saw Qin Chu walk up to them. Wei Liao, however, was calm enough to chat with the others as he stayed beside Jiang Xiaowei.
Qin Chu's demeanor was exactly the same as it used to be, with an added hint of sentiment. Perhaps the fact that he was a father now changed him＃
Huo Mian, holding the hem of her sapphire-colored gown, walked out of the ballroom. Worried, Bella followed her. "President Huo, where are you going? I'll go with you."
"Have you seen President Su?"
"Oh＃ I saw him walking back to the stern alone."
"You don't have to follow me, I'll be fine. Take care of the party, call me if anything happens."
Then, Huo Mian headed towards the stern of the ship.
Upon seeing Huo Mian leaving by herself, Huo Siqian turned around to follow her. However, before he could reach the door, An stopped him. "President Huo, please stay in your room."
"What do you mean? I'm an invited guest, don't I have the freedom to come and go as I wish?" Huo Siqian sneered.
"Of course you do, but the stern of the ship is restricted to President Huo and President Su, no one else can go there."
"Oh＃ I see it's where they flirt behind her husband's back, isn't it?" Huo Siqian spat viciously.
"What are you bullshitting about? Do you think the entire world is like you? If you defame President Su again, I'm going to make you pay for it. Don't think I can't do anything to you just because you're the president of the Huo Corporation. Don't you remember your knife wounds from last time?" An glared angrily at Huo Siqian.
An and Huo Siqian once engaged in direct combat because of Huo Mian. In the beginning, the latter didn't care much about Su Yu's little assistant. Mostly because he didn't even lose to Su Yu when the two fought.
To Huo Siqian's surprise, however, he almost died that time. If he didn't run away in time, An would've punctured his heart or lung.
Since that incident, Huo Siqian became more careful. He didn't even have a chance to kidnap Huo Mian and the twins.
"Good job, I'll make you pay for what you said today," Huo Siqian threatened.
"I'll be waiting for you," An replied with his jaw clenched.
After Su Yu went to the stern, An blocked the way and didn't let anyone but Huo Mian through.
An had been by Huo Mian's side for three whole years, and he knew she wasn't one to burn her bridges. The only problem was that she really didn't love Su Yu. An understood what Huo Mian was going through, but he also empathized with President Su's love for her.
When Huo Mian saw Su Yu, he was sitting alone with something in his hand, staring out into the vast sea with a grim expression on his face. The sea winds had messed up his perfect hair＃Find authorized novels in Webnovelㄛfaster updates, better experienceㄛPlease click for visiting.
"Su Yu＃" she called out his name as she slowly walked up to him.
