Chapter 2095: Career or Woman? (6)

"Which one?" Bella asked with surprise.

"Um, how many boyfriends do you have? I'm obviously talking about the one from before…"

"Oh, that scumbag? We don't talk anymore… he actually came looking for me a while back, do you know what he wanted?"

"He cheated on you?" Huo Mian made a random guess.

"Haha, no, he came to borrow money from me," Bella burst out in laughter.

"He wanted to borrow money from you? Did you lend it to him?" Huo Mian frowned.

"Of course not, I'm not an idiot, why would I lend him money? He was trying to make me feel sorry for him, and told me that he needed 30,000 yuan for his sister to undergo surgery… I actually believed him at the time, so I called his sister, but she said she was fine. After I exposed his lie, he got really embarrassed and told me that he gambled his money away and used company money to repay his debt…"

"Then what happened?"

"Then I blocked him, of course. What's the point of talking to him?" Bella replied with determination.

Huo Mian gave Bella a thumbs-up. "I love women like you, you're so resolute!"

"Haha, President Huo, stop pulling my leg, I'm not resolute compared to you, I'm just a white-collar employee." The truth was, Bella admired Huo Mian and treated the latter as her idol. Over the last few years, Bella had been an extremely loyal and hardworking assistant to Huo Mian.

"Bella, you should think about getting married soon, it's time to start considering it."

"Mhm, my parents set me up a couple of times, but I didn't feel anything towards any of them. Either I think they're not good enough, or they think I'm too old and domineering… So none of them worked out. My parents are in a rush since I'm not so young anymore, but I'm just going to leave it up to fate… In fact, being single isn't bad either."Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click for visiting.

"If you meet someone you like, don't let the opportunity slip past your fingers, alright?" Huo Mian said, and Bella smiled. "Mhm, I won't. Thanks, President Huo."

"Sis, we're ready, bring the food over!" Zhixin waved his hands at Huo Mian and Bella, and the two of them brought the food over to him and Qin Chu.

Qin Chu then began barbequing in his crisp white shirt. He was standing close to the fire, so his face turned red and sweat soon began to seep out of his forehead.

Huo Mian immediately took out a moist toilette and gently wiped the beads of sweat off her husband's forehead. "Thanks for all the hard work, Mr. Qin…"

"Thanks, Dr. Huo." Qin Chu smiled.

"Hey, no love-flaunting! It's killing me!" Zhixin muttered.

"Go away and play somewhere else. Oh, get something to drink with Bella!" Huo Mian randomly thought of an excuse to send the two of them away.

After they left, Huo Mian mysteriously asked Qin Chu, "Mr. Qin, do you think Bella and Zhixin would make a good couple?"

"How would I know? I'm not Saint Valentine…" Mr. Qin's answer left Huo Mian speechless.

"What I meant was, since you know their personalities well, do you think Zhixin has a shot?"

"I guess, Bella is more mature and grounded… Zhixin is younger so he still needs time to grow up. Most importantly, if Bella is open to dating someone younger than him, then yeah, I think Zhixin has a chance." Qin Chu analyzed with a clear head.

"Mhm, I was thinking the same thing. It would be great if they ended up together. I would be able to rest easy if Bella were the one to be with Zhixin." Huo Mian nodded.

Not far from them, the twins began to gossip.

"Sis, don't you think it's weird for Auntie Bella to come to our family gathering? She isn't related to anymore, she just works at the company… Do you think something's up?" Little Bean asked.
