Chapter 86: The Funeral
Unexpectedly, on the other side, Qin Chu only said quietly, "Stay away from that pervert Huo Siqian from now on."
"…" All of a sudden, Huo Mian didn't know what to say.
"Did you hear me?" Qin Chu warned her in a childish tone.
"Yes, I know."
"The funeral is at 7 AM right?" A few minutes ago, through the phone, Qin Chu heard the feng shui master talking.
"Yes." Huo Mian nodded.
"I will wait for you at the gates of the graveyard later."
"It's fine. I'm just going to head to work at the hospital after this."
"I already asked them to give you a day off. Come home and rest today."
"Em…" Huo Mian was again speechless.
This guy was fast. He had already asked the hospital to give her a day off.
But she was very curious. The clinic had been really busy recently, so why did the head nurse give her a day off so easily?
"The head nurse… did she approve my day off?" Huo Mian asked in disbelief.
However, Qin Chu answered casually, "I called Wu Zhongxing."
"Alright, you win." Huo Mian felt like all the blood in her body was going to coagulate after she heard that Qin Chu called Director Wu.
A nobody nurse intern from the OB/GYN Department called the hospital director to ask for a day off... It was a leap to death.
On the other hand, based on Qin Chu's social status, the director would probably even allow her to take an entire year off…
"Okay then, see you later." After they finished talking, Qin Chu hung up the phone before Huo Mian could say anything else.
What a coincidence. After he hung up the phone, Huo Mian realized that her phone was dying.
Qin Chu kept her company on the other side of the phone without falling asleep for an entire six or seven hours.
He was persistent...
Sometimes, Huo Mian had an illusion that Qin Chu was still in love with her, even if he hadn't said so yet.
But it was only an illusion. Often, when she calmed down, Huo Mian would realize that they were both just unwilling to let go of the past.
He couldn't accept that he was dumped seven years ago. He couldn't accept that she broke up with him unilaterally.
The sky was dusky on the day of the funeral, and the wind was blowing hard. Huo Mian's heart felt very heavy.
There were about sixty people there, including the Huo family and their distant relatives. There were also over a hundred guests outside. Over a hundred black Mercedes-Benz followed each other in a grandiose fleet of cars; it was a spectacular scene. The car in the very front was a black Rolls Royce with grandma's portrait hanging on the front.
Everyone attending the funeral was wearing black, with white ribbons tied on one arm.
Reporters from several media sources followed the procession intently, making a scene.
Huo Mian wore a black dress and sunglasses, following the crowd as an inconspicuous existence.
Huo Siqian, Huo Siyi, Huo Yanyan, Mrs. Huo, and the mistress were on either side of Huo Zhenghai.
Of course, they were favored by the press…
Huo Yanyan's attitude had changed dramatically from the day before. Tears streamed from her red and puffy eyes, triggering sympathetic reactions.
The press gave her, specifically, a close-up, while a reporter commented on TV.
"Huo Yanyan, the Huo family's princess, is leading the funeral procession, walking in the very front. Miss Huo looks extremely sorrowful, and her eyes are red and swollen. It is said that she stayed up all night yesterday in the mourning hall. The respect she paid to her grandmother has touched the whole world. Not only does Miss Huo have great looks, she also has a beautiful loving heart. What a precious woman. It's rare to see a kindhearted woman like her in the upper-class society. The Huo family has taught her well."
When this part was broadcasted on TV, Zhu Lingling was watching from an airplane and almost threw up…
She was close to Huo Mian, so of course she knew the Huo family's situation very well.
Several flight attendants were talking, "Huo Yanyan is so nice. She's so pretty and kind. She must have been a big hero and saved the universe in her last life to be lucky enough to be born into the Huo family."
"Bullshit, this woman is not as good as she seems to be. She's vicious. Don't believe what you hear in the press," Zhu Lingling said angrily. If there was anyone nice in the Huo family, it had to be Huo Mian. The rest were all hypocrites.
"How do you know, Lingling? Are you good friends with Huo Yanyan?" One of the flight attendants asked.
