Chapter 965: Too Many People Want You Dead 7
"Mr. Qin, um＃ I was just joking, haha." Zhu Lingling chickened out.
"But I took it seriously," Qin Chu said in all seriousness.
"Huo Mian＃ keep your man at bay, is he trying to play us dead?" Zhu Lingling felt like crying and looked helplessly at Huo Mian as if she wanted her help.
Huo Mian was probably the only person in this entire world who could suppress Qin Chu.
"Honey＃ ahem＃ let's leave them alone and go home."
Huo Mian glanced at the couple in front of her, and upon seeing how dumbfounded they were, she decided to let them off the hook.
They were going to secretly enjoy some roasted duck, but Qin Chu and Huo Mian ended up having way too much fun with them.
Huo Mian wiped her mouth with a napkin and then pulled Qin Chu up＃
"Thanks for the duck, guys." Huo Mian smiled.
"Warrior, see you never," Gao Ran did the classic Chinese palm to hand salute, causing her to once again burst out in laughter.
Huo Mian was still laughing even after they left the restaurant＃
"Honey, did we go overboard? They might curse at us behind our backs."
Qin Chu smiled, but he didn't say anything＃
That afternoon, Huo Mian went back to GK's headquarters with Qin Chu.
The latter had work to do, so Huo Mian walked around the company.
Then, she bumped into Annie Liang, who had just signed a cell phone endorsement deal.
Therefore, she had been filming with that; a dozen people swarmed around her and treated her like a hotshot.
When Huo Mian walked in, everyone immediately greeted her, "Young Madam."
Huo Mian nodded at everyone＃
Annie Liang walked up to her with a bottle of green tea. "Have something to drink, Young Madam."
"Thank you." Huo Mian took the green tea and looked around.
"I haven't seen you here in a while."
"Yeah, I've been pretty busy recently. How are you doing? I heard that the company got you some endorsement deals."
"Yeah, one cellphone commercial, two new-season clothing commercials, and a phone app commercial."
"That's good, work hard."
"Thank you, Young Madam. Oh, right＃ did you and Jiang Linyue not get along well?" Annie Liang suddenly asked.
"Yeah, we didn't really get along," Huo Mian answered honestly.
"Ah＃ I signed with GK because she asked me to. She's friends with my cousin, but I don't know her very well. A few days ago, she kept calling me and asking me to help her. She wants to come back to C City, but you should know that I don't like interfering in others' business. I also know that you're a smart woman, and there must be a reason behind your decision to transfer her, so I didn't agree to help her. She must've misbehaved and caused the Young Madam trouble."
"You're right, she didn't really know how to behave," Huo Mian took a sip of green tea and said slowly.
"Young Madam, don't worry, I'm not a woman without principle. You gave me a chance at stardom, so I will never betray you and help pointless people. I also hope that you won't link me with them. After all＃ we're different people with different paths, and all I want to do is work and make money for the company."
"I know." Huo Mian nodded.
Annie Liang's intentions were clear; she wanted Huo Mian to know that although Jiang Linyue introduced her to GK, they weren't close friends, so she didn't want Huo Mian to vent her anger out on Annie Liang.
The truth was, Huo Mian almost forgot that the person named Jiang Linyue even existed. Ever since Song Yishi came back to China, she encountered her true enemy.
That woman had her ways; she was as vicious as a wolf, but always pretended to be a weak lamb.
Qin Chu got off work at 6 PM, and the two of them drove back to Sky Blessing Court.
They wanted to show her mother that the divorce was no more than malignant rumors＃
Yang Meirong was immediately relieved upon seeing them as happy as they used to be and began cooking them dinner.
After dinner, it began snowing on their way home.
This was the first snowfall in the city ever since winter came. Snowflakes floated down like cotton candy＃
Outside South Hill Manor, Qin Chu and Huo Mian left the Maybach after parking it.
"The snow is beautiful＃" Huo Mian looked up; the white snow added a hint of romance to the night skies.
Qin Chu held Huo Mian's hand and slowly said, "Apparently, if you walk in the snow with the person you love, you guys might accidentally become white-haired together." (TL Note: it's a saying in China: becoming white-haired = growing old together = spending the rest of your lives together)
Huo Mian turned around to look at Qin Chu; there were snowflakes on his hair, as he stood before her, tall and handsome.
"Mr. Qin, may I have the honor of taking a stroll with you?" Huo Mian smiled as she asked.
