"Ahem... yeah, it is an illusion," Huo Mian replied awkwardly, and then she lowered her head to eat her noodles, not saying another word. At this sight, hints of disappointment appeared in Qin Chu's eyes
He knew that she had feelings for him, but he was surprised that she couldn't admit it or see it herself.
This also proved that she hadn't gotten over what happened seven years ago, which brought up the question, when would they ever untie the knots in their hearts and get over the past?
After dinner, Qin Chu and Huo Mian went home together.
Qin Chu went upstairs to work, while Huo Mian stayed downstairs. She changed into her loungewear and did some cleaning around the place.
Qin Chu seemed to be done work around 8:30 PM, and he came downstairs to watch the Financial News channel.
Meanwhile, Huo Mian was watching a TV show on her laptop.
Just then, she suddenly thought of something and said, "Oh right, Ning Zhiyuan called me today, but I didn't pick it up. He sent me a text afterward."
"Who's Ning Zhiyuan?" Qin Chu raised his head.
Huo Mian was at a loss for words...
Here we go again... this guy always pretended to not remember someone he didn't like.
With Qin Chu's intelligence, he would definitely be able to remember someone's name. He was just being arrogant, pretending that he had forgotten the names of people that were insignificant.
"That terrible ex-boyfriend of mine."
"Oh, did he want to get back together with you?" asked Qin Chu nonchalantly.
Huo Mian shuddered. "Why would he? He's about to marry Wu Xiaoxue, and he said the wedding was going to be on the 17th of next month."
"So, you want me to help you to kidnap the groom?"
"Please, can you behave more properly?" Huo Mian felt extremely speechless in front of Qin Chu's unreasonable response.
Qin Chu only looked at her faintly, and continued to say, "Would you still be sitting there so perfectly untouched, if I wasn't behaving myself?"
In front of such "deep" words, Huo Mian immediately understood what he meant, even though she thought that she was fairly innocent
"Uhm okay, let's discuss something else then. I was only telling you about it, I never planned on going to the wedding anyway."
"You should go to the wedding," Qin Chu said as he watched the news.
"Why? I will have to buy them a present if I go, and that's not something I want to do." Huo Mian didn't want to waste even a cent on a person like Ning Zhiyuan.
"No, you must go, and you have to buy them a super expensive present," said Qin Chu arrogantly.
Huo Mian was left speechless, but just then, Qin Chu added, "I want him to know how rich your husband is, and how right it was for you to leave him back then. More than anything, you have to let him know that no matter how hard he works his whole life, he will never earn as much as I can, and he should get rid of any thoughts about you."
Huo Mian was now truly speechless and had no clue how to respond.
Qin Chu was incredibly immature for wanting to do that, in addition to making it look like she married him for money.
Besides, Ning Zhiyuan wouldn't be stupid enough to compete with the president of GK over who was wealthier.
The next morning, Qin Chu went to work, while Huo Mian didn't have much to do because she had time off from her shifts.
She was deciding between having lunch with Lingling, or visiting Zhixin at his school.
Just then, her phone rang, and the display showed that it was an unknown caller.
"Is this Huo Mian?" a young man asked on the other end after Huo Mian picked up.
"I'm Huo Siyi," he said.
"Oh you, what do you want?" Huo Mian was surprised to hear that it was Huo Siyi, because she hasn't had much interaction with him. He even picked on her at their grandmother's funeral, and she retaliated, which resulted in discontent on both sides.
She knew that sim cards were linked to the owner's real identity and that it wouldn't be difficult for Huo Siyi to get her number. But why did he suddenly call her? It couldn't be anything good.
