Chapter 1928: The Family of Four’s Trip to the United States (9)

Qin Ning immediately shook her head. "I didn't, Big Brother. Am I someone who doesn't know what I should or shouldn't say? I wouldn't tell her even if I was beaten to death."


Qin Chu reassuringly nodded his head. Then he turned and walked upstairs...

When Qin Chu arrived upstairs, Huo Mian had already showered and was reading a fashion magazine in bed.

"Did you check on the kids?"

Huo Mian nodded. "Yes. They're already asleep. Perhaps it's because they had too much fun today and were too tired."

"Okay. We don't need to wake up too early tomorrow. Let's just let them sleep in. Besides, we can go to Disneyland anytime."

"Sounds good."

Huo Mian seemed like her mood was down in the dumps.

Qin Chu took off his white t-shirt and revealed his tanned body. His 6-pack looked perfect, causing anyone to drool over them.

He walked over, sat down by the head of the bed, and wrapped his arm around her shoulders, leaning her head against his chest.

"What are you doing? Seducing me?" Huo Mian asked jokingly.

"Do I need to seduce you? A single kiss will cause you to surrender." Qin Chu looked down and laughed.

"Psh... what an egomaniac."

"Why don't we give it a try then?" Qin Chu playfully teased her.

What he enjoyed the most was seeing Huo Mian become a shy little girl and act cutely in his arms.

In his eyes, Huo Mian was not a strong-headed goddess; rather, she was only an innocent and simple girl.

"Honey..." Huo Mian turned around, held onto Qin Chu's neck, and said in a soft voice.

"What are you doing? You want me?" Qin Chu continued to tease her.

"Can't we just have a normal conversation?"

"We can. Let's do it first and then talk, okay?"

"Not okay."

"Then let's talk first and then do it."

Huo Mian: "..."

After running around in circles, it seemed like Mr. Qin had won# although Huo Mian was an extremely intelligent woman, she always felt like a dummy around her husband.

"Honey... Can you please be serious. I have something to say."

"Okay, Honey. Please speak." Qin Chu looked at her lovingly.

"Honey, these four years have been harder on you than me, right?"

"Of course not. I had it pretty good in the US. Both my parents are here and I also had Uncle Qin and Qin Ning. I had enough to wear and enough to eat... it wasn't hard on me at all. In contrast, you've suffered more."

"You're lying... it wasn't good at all..."

"Honey... did Qin Ning say something to you? You shouldn't listen to what she says. She's known to exaggerate everything." Qin Chu was worried about Huo Mian so he tried his best to cover up the truth.

"Even if Ning didn't tell me, I could still imagine what you had to go through. Honestly, everyone knew how hard it has been for me to raise the kids but no one saw how hard this whole thing has been on you. Even if my situation was worse, there would always be someone by my side and the Su family would still protect me. Yet you had to overcome the pain of multiple follow-up surgeries and withstand the loneliness of missing us..."

"It's all in the past now. Isn't everything fine now?"

"Qin Chu, you're such a dummy..." Huo Mian suddenly broke out in tears.

"Yes# Yes... I'm a dummy. As long as my wife is a genius, we'll be okay," Qin Chu coaxed Huo Mian in his arms.

"Qin Chu... From now on... I don't want you to handle everything on your own. Even if you're a man, there are still times when you are tired and exhausted... I just hope that you'll share both your happy and sad times with me in the future. As husband and wife, I want to take on whatever the world throws at us together. When you're sad, you can lean on me. You don't have to deal with it all by yourself. You're no god, you're also human..."

"Honey, I know. I'll do as you say from now on."

At this moment, Huo Mian's heart really ached too much for Qin Chu.

Qin Chu suffered such great pains over the last four years yet everyone still blamed him.

Fans of Huo Mian who weren't aware of the situation would also comment on his Weibo page, accusing him of being irresponsible and a coward.

However, Huo Mian knew that Qin Chu was doing all this for her. Anything that involved her was extremely important to him.

Therefore, he accepted all the blame, just so he could protect Huo Mian.

In the misty night, Qin Chu silently hugged onto Huo Mian...

- At this time, in a high-class condo in LA -

An old man in a white lab coat walked out of the lab.

"Professor. Miss Huo and her family are going to be in LA tomorrow. Since they're already here, do you want to find a chance and meet up with them?" his assistant reported.
