Chapter 912: Taking Every Opportunity One Can Get (4)
Huo Mian didn't reply, but her answer was implied in her silence＃
"Mian, have you ever considered that maybe you and Qin Chu aren't compatible?"
Huo Siqian stared at Huo Mian's pretty profile and asked slowly.
"I used to, but not after we got married. I want to be his wife my entire life, it's what we both want."
"But＃ you have to know that sometimes, you need to learn how to take detours, rather than drive down the same route for the rest of your life. If you knew that it's a dead end, would you still decide to go down that path, even if you find yourself with nothing left but cuts and bruises? Is it worth it?"
Huo Mian remained silent＃
Her life with Qin Chu hadn't been easy, and the only thing supporting them was love.
If their love disappeared one day, what would be left between her and Qin Chu?
Should they say goodbye to each other, rather than spend the rest of their lives together?
Most couples find it hard to forget each other, even after they break up＃
Many stories start by promising love and happiness and end by hoping that the other person is happy.
What about them?
She was 24, and Qin Chu was 27. A little over 6 months ago, they registered for marriage.
Although it wasn't Huo Mian's choice marry Qin Chu, Huo Mian really did love him.
She thought that their being together was the best ending she could have＃
However, Huo Siqian's question threw her into a nonstop struggle＃
Were they really incompatible? Would it be better if they split up?
When Qin Chu arrived back at their home in Imperial Park, as expected, he didn't see Huo Mian.
She didn't come back; Qin Chu called Uncle Li at South Hill Manor, but the latter said that Huo Mian hadn't returned there either.
It seems like she was at Sky Blessing Court＃
Usually, he would drive there and woo her until she forgave him.
However, this time, Qin Chu didn't＃
He was tired; he felt like Huo Mian never tried to think in his shoes. He had lined up the disadvantages for her to see.
However, she still disregarded his feelings and let negative news erupt between them.
He didn't care about GK's stock market declines; money was just an accessory.
However, has she ever thought about her husband?
Just then, Qin Chu's phone rang＃
He immediately picked up; he was disappointed to see the caller because it wasn't Huo Mian.
"Qin Chu, it's Yishi." Song Yishi's voice was gentle.
"Mhm," Qin Chu sounded indifferent.
"Do you have time? I want to visit you."
"Right now?" Qin Chu was surprised.
"Yeah, I'm at Imperial Park."
"Why are you here?" Qin Chu frowned.
"It wasn't convenient to live with my parents since we have really different schedules, so I moved out and bought a condo here. It's not too far from yours."
"I assumed that you're not in a good mood today after the news, so＃ I wanted to see you."
"Sorry, I'm not at Imperial Park."
Qin Chu declined Song Yishi's offer; he wasn't in a good mood, but he didn't need another woman to console him.
"Oh＃ I see＃ okay then, another time."
Song Yishi hung up; she peered at the Maybach outside one of the buildings, and disappointment filled her chest.
Qin Chu always had his guard up around her＃
Even if he and Huo Mian were giving each other the silent treatment, he still didn't want to see her.
On the other side of town, Huo Mian had already downed 10 bottles of beer, but she wasn't drunk at all＃
"Don't drink anymore." Huo Siqian gently tried to stop her.
"Why? Didn't you say it was your treat? Are you afraid that I will drink you poor?" Huo Mian half-jokingly retorted.
"No, I don't want your stomach to get upset＃"
Once again, Huo Mian fell into silence＃
After a while, she suddenly opened her mouth and asked, "Huo Siqian, do you like me?"
Huo Siqian's body froze for a second upon hearing her question＃
He never thought that Huo Mian would ask him such a direct and sharp question.
"Would you believe me if I said that I did?" It took him a while to come back to his senses, but he replied with a smile on his face.
