Chapter 54: Getting the Marriage Certificate
"If you want to get me into bed with you, why go through the trouble of marrying me? Just tell me how many times you would like to sleep with me." Huo Mian snickered coldly, thinking that Qin Chu was an opportunist just like Wei Dong. She began despising him.
"You're wrong, I do want to sleep with you, but I want to rightfully sleep with my wife, not like some secret underground affair."
Huo Mian fell silent after she heard his words.
"You can go back and think about it before you reply."
"I don't need to. I agree to your terms. Please perform my brother's surgery immediately." Huo Mian barely hesitated at all.
"Okay, then let's go now. We'll take Evergreen Avenue to the hospital. Let's get married when we pass by the Civil Administration Bureau."
"Today?" Huo Mian was surprised.
"Yes, when else were you thinking?" Qin Chu looked at her with a serious expression.
Huo Mian was shocked; she didn't think that today was a good day to get married.
"Are you worried that I'll back down on the deal? Do you not trust me?" Huo Mian said as she smiled bitterly.
She thought that Qin Chu didn't trust her and suspected that she wouldn't marry him after the surgery.
However, she had no clue that it was just because Qin Chu had waited far too long for this day.
"No, I just thought that today would be a great day. Come, we still need to get to the hospital for the surgery."
After he spoke, Qin Chu took his jacket and walked out of the office. Huo Mian silently followed behind him.
The secretaries outside of the office were all astounded at this sight.
"Who is she? I thought that the president forbade people from entering his office. Why did he let her in?"
"I don't know. She doesn't look like the president's girlfriend. She's not that pretty, and she's in very simple clothes. Do you think she might be the new housemaid his family hired?"
"Are you stupid? Would our president personally interview a housemaid? Let's go ask Assistant Yang."
After the secretaries began gossiping, someone grew brave enough to go and ask Assistant Yang.
"Assistant Yang, who was that woman? The President seemed to treat her differently."
"How would I know? It's my first time seeing her as well," Assistant Yang said with an innocent look.
"Doesn't marriage registration require a household register? I don't have mine with me," Huo Mian said quietly from the passenger seat.
"Huh?" Once again, Huo Mian was shocked. She never knew they could register for marriage without a household register.
The truth was, Qin Chu was just so powerful and resourceful that he could even go and get married butt naked if he wanted to.
- At the Civil Administration Bureau -
Inside the VIP reception room, a staff member passed the couple two little red books, which were their marriage certificates.
"That's it? We're married?" Huo Mian asked anxiously.
"Yes, we found your household register in our system. Congratulations on your marriage."
"Let's go." In a good mood, Qin Chu quickly took one of the red books.
Huo Mian followed behind him, still in disbelief. They got married without any identification.
But the truth was, Qin Chu called the senior official's assistant, that middle-aged man, while he went to pick up his car from the parking lot.
He firmly asked for this as his reward.
The middle-aged man was very efficient, and the Civil Administration Bureau treated this with great care.
- Inside some teahouse in Jing City -
"Sir, we've completed your orders."
"This kid sure is interesting. Quite a reward he asked for," said a kind old man with white hair, and wrinkle lines on his face.
"I mean, only these so-called geniuses could think of such things. They always manage to surprise others," the middle-aged man agreed.
"Qin Chu, we should head to the hospital now," Huo Mian rushed.
"From now on, I'm your husband." Without waiting for Huo Mian to respond, Qin Chu suddenly held up her face and pressed his lips against hers. Then he accelerated and drove away at a high speed.
Huo Mian sat beside him in a daze...
