Chapter 825: Taking Something That Belongs to Others (6)
Qin Chu didn't say anything...
However, his presence made the others feel incredibly pressured...
Upon seeing his persistence, Song Yishi had no choice but to look down and give her bank account number to Qin Chu.
"How much money did you spend in total?"
"Less than eighty thousand," Song Yishi spoke under her breath.
Ten seconds later, her phone dinged＃
Song Yishi received a notice from her banking app＃
"Why did you give me this much?" Song Yishi raised her head to look at Qin Chu when she saw that he gave her a hundred thousand yuan.
"To thank you for taking care of my mother over these past few days."
"So＃ are you paying me a labor fee?" Song Yishi smiled bitterly.
Qin Chu was silent＃
"Yishi＃ since Chu wants to give it to you, then you should keep it. Consider it as a gift from him, since he already gave it to you," Mrs. Qin tried to mediate.
Qin Chu helped his mother up and carefully placed her into a wheelchair. Then, they went downstairs together.
After Qin Chu returned home, the maids began to prepare dinner＃
However, Qin Chu stood up to leave＃
"Chu, you're not eating?" shouted Mrs. Qin.
"No, I have to pick up Mian and then head back home."
Mrs. Qin's expression immediately turned grim when she heard him mention Huo Mian＃
However Song Yishi stood up and said, "Let me see you out, I just happen to have something to talk to you about."
Qin Chu nodded and left as Song Yishi followed behind him＃
"I'm very sorry for not taking better care of things that day during the cocktail party, and for having wounded Huo Mian."
"That wasn't your fault."
"My friends are a little arrogant and prissy, but they didn't mean to target Huo Mian on purpose. There might be some misunderstandings between them＃ but they didn't hurt Huo Mian on purpose＃ I would like to apologize to Huo Mian on their behalf."
"It's all in the past, no need to talk about it."
Qin Chu had always kept his small talk short, especially with those who didn't have anything to do with him＃
"Is there anything else?" Qin Chu looked at his watch. It was already fairly late, and Qin Chu was in a hurry to pick Huo Mian up.
"Also on that day＃ don't think too much about what I'm about to say, someone told me about it＃ But Su Yu seemed to have responded quite dramatically after Huo Mian was injured, and afterward, he purposely crashed into my friend's car. Everyone knew about what happened＃ and I don't want to tattletale or anything, but I only wanted to say that words get around, and you're all public figures. You should be more careful of what you do, perhaps you can tell Huo Mian not to see Su Yu anymore so that others wouldn't talk about them."
"Thanks for your reminder." Qin Chu's tone remained indifferent.
"That's all I wanted to say, I know that rumors were just rumors＃ I'm sure nothing is going on between Su Yu and Huo Mian."
"They don't know each other that well," Qin Chu quickly replied and then got on his car.
He no longer wanted to waste his time talking to Song Yishi＃
Song Yishi watched his Maybach drive away as odd lights flashed in her eyes＃
In fact, she was curious to see how long the so-called inseparable love between Qin Chu and Huo Mian could last, once rumors started flying everywhere.
When she returned to the Qin Manor's living room, Mrs. Qin immediately complained, "Yishi, you're too easygoing. Why didn't you say something to make Chu stay for dinner?"
"But he had something else to do."
"You＃ are just way too understanding, what a silly child＃ you can't even beat one-tenth of Huo Mian's schemes like this."
"It's better to live simplistically, calculating and manipulating is too tiring. After all, no one can live with a mask on their face for an entire lifetime."
"You're right＃ let's see how long that despicable bitch, Huo Mian can live in disguise!" Mrs. Qin spoke viciously＃
Song Yishi only smiled and didn't say anything.
After she came back to the country, she spent more time at the Qin Manor than she did in her own house.
The lonely lady, Mrs. Qin, treated Song Yishi like she was the only important factor in her whole life.
When Qin Chu arrived at Sky Blessing Court, he saw Huo Mian asleep on the couch as soon as he entered＃
She crawled into the sofa like a little cat＃
His eyes immediately turned gentler＃
"Brother-in-law＃ you're finally here. Hurry up and get my sis up. I told her to sleep in the bedroom, but she won't. She said that she wanted to wait for you here."
Qin Chu nodded; then, he walked over to Huo Mian and carefully held her up.
"Honey, you're here?" Huo Mian asked as she rubbed her sleepy eyes and looked at Qin Chu.
