Chapter 68: Cornered
Huo Mian sluggishly raised her head and saw Qin Chu sitting on the couch. He was wearing a toffee-colored dress shirt, casual pants, and on his wrist was a luxurious limited edition Patek Philippe diamond watch. His fingers danced on the keyboard of his laptop; it looked like he was busy working.
"Mhm," Huo Mian drowsily replied.
"I cooked, let's eat together."
He did not wait for a reply from Huo Mian as he put down his laptop and walked into the kitchen.
Then, he brought out two servings of toast, bacon, and hot coffee.
Huo Mian wanted to say that she wasn't hungry, but, as she opened her mouth, her stomach immediately betrayed her and rumbled.
Qin Chu put the toast and coffee in front of her on the coffee table.
Huo Mian didn't want to seem stuck up, so she slowly dug in.
Perhaps it was her hunger, or maybe some other reason, but the food was delicious.
Honey and butter were smeared on the toast, making it so f*cking sweet. It just so happened that Huo Mian had a sweet tooth.
Watching Huo Mian silently eat his food, Qin Chu's gaze became soft in an instant...
Just then, Qin Chu's phone rang...
He put down his mug and slowly answered his phone...
"Son, why did you move out all of a sudden?" Mrs. Qin seemed to be taking the situation seriously.
"I've been busy at work and am always working overtime. It's not convenient to always drive back and forth."
"You don't have to move out though, where's your new house? Are there maids, chauffeurs, and cleaners?"
"Mom, I can take care of myself."
"Son… If you're not used to living alone, please move back. I'm worried about you."
"Mom, I am an adult."
"I know, but you're forever my baby boy. Chu, what do you think about the two girls I brought home tonight?" Mrs. Qin finally got to her point.
"I didn't like them."
"Was it their looks, or their height? Tell me what you want in a woman. I'll keep an eye out for you." Mrs. Qin attempted to convince her son.
As Qin Chu was holding the phone, he looked at Huo Mian, who was drinking coffee.
Then, enunciating every word, Qin Chu said, "Mom, my standards for is… 24 years old, 165 centimeters tall, weighs 50 kilograms, has long black hair, big eyes, doesn't wear makeup, likes wearing white tees and jeans, and has dimples when she smiles."
When Huo Mian heard that, she lowered her head in embarrassment.
She didn't like being a narcissist, but she felt like Qin Chu was describing her.
"Wait a second, let me note that down. Son, I'll try my best to find you a girl like that." On the other side of the phone, Mrs. Qin took Qin Chu's words seriously.
"Good, that's all. Goodnight." After speaking, Qin Chu hung up without waiting for a reply.
After silently finishing her food, Huo Mian took the dishes into the kitchen.
As she turned around, she bumped into Qin Chu...
She didn't know what he was doing in the kitchen at that time.
They were so close together that it made Huo Mian nervous.
Qin Chu's hands were against the wall, surrounding Huo Mian with his arms. He warmly looked down at the person in his embrace.
Huo Mian was successfully cornered without any warning...
"Excuse me, I still need to wash the utensils," Huo Mian said as she pretended to be calm.
Qin Chu stared at her face for three seconds.
"You don't have to do these things."
After speaking, Qin Chu moved and created a passageway for Huo Mian. He walked up to the sink and began washing the used utensils.
Huo Mian didn't know what she was supposed to do...
When Qin Chu finished washing the utensils and exited the kitchen, Huo Mian was still sitting on the sofa. It was already ten o'clock at night.
"It's late, we should… sleep." With his hands in his pocket, Qin Chu leaned against the doorway and looked at Huo Mian.
"I'm not tired, you should sleep first," Huo Mian awkwardly replied.
"Are you afraid of sleeping with me?" The corners of Qin Chu's mouth raised up into a smirk.
