"Goddess Huo, why do you have to say such scary things? Will I still be alive tomorrow if I marry her today?" Gao Ran faintly looked at Huo Mian.
"Whoa, what are you saying? What do you mean by 'will you still be alive'? What did I do? Didn't you personally invite me to your suite? Did you think I wanted to go? I've realized, you're a two-sided rotten cop, who acts like one person in front of some people and another behind others. How hypocritical." Zhu Lingling was clearly mad.
"Yo, lady, I'm wrong, I didn't mean it like that. I meant to tell Huo Mian that the two of us can't compare with the two of them. We've both got work, I've got stuff to do at the police bureau, and she can't push her things back, so we'll head back early. I'll come again once I'm on vacation, it's so pretty here," Gao Ran sighed.
"Okay, I'll get someone to fill up your car with a tank of gas." Qin Chu nodded.
"What about you guys? When are you going back?" asked Gao Ran.
"Maybe tomorrow, we'll be home tomorrow night."
"Okay, then let's get together once you guys come back."
After breakfast, Qin Chu ordered for Gao Ran's car to be driven over, and then he saw off Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling.
Truth be told, Huo Mian didn't want to see those two leave, but they had no choice.
They had to go to work, so after they left, Huo Mian pulled Qin Chu's hand and asked, "Where are we going today?"
"We're going deep into the mountains today."
"Deep into the mountains?" Huo Mian froze.
She didn't seem to know what sort of new plans Qin Chu came up with, but she has always been pleasantly surprised by his plans.
She has liked everything he planned this was quite clear.
Qin Chu drove along the Yunding Mountain range with Huo Mian for about an hour or so.
The road became harder and harder to drive on, and just as Qin Chu stopped the car, he pointed towards an averagely sized opening and said, "We can't drive up that road, so we'll have to walk in."
"Uhm it looks dark, there shouldn't be any ferocious beasts, right?" Huo Mian felt a bit scared.
"There aren't any, trust me, I'm here."
"That's true, other beasts won't show up with you around, because you're the biggest beast of them all." Huo Mian covered her mouth as she laughed.
Qin Chu, ""
"You're pretty arrogant, just wait to see how I punish you tonight." Qin Chu raised his finger and flicked Huo Mian's head dotingly.
"I'm on my period, you can't" Huo Mian was full of pride.
"Huh? Honey, you seemed to be mistaken, when I said punish, I meant tickling you."
"Uhm that." Huo Mian felt somewhat awkward.
"What else did you think I was talking about?' Qin Chu smiled teasingly.
"Nothing, come, hurry up, what are we waiting for?" Huo Mian changed her tone and topic when she realized that she couldn't beat Qin Chu.
Qin Chu and Huo Mian held hands as they walked into the mountains
The mountain path was very rugged, but it became more interesting when they saw there were wooden steps.
"These steps are beautiful, they must have been pricey to build," Huo Mian exclaimed as she looked down.
"These finished not long ago. I got them to design it, and it was expensive to build. Normal wood wouldn't do the job since it would corrode over long periods of time and become too dangerous, so I ordered them to carefully craft these stairs with special wood."
"Huh? You ordered someone to design it? Why?" Huo Mian was confused.
Huo Mian thought that Qin Chu wasn't such a careless big spender who would use large amounts of money to build stairs inside the depth of the woods.
There must be a reason behind his actions...
"Because you'll find out when you see it." Qin Chu remained mysterious, refusing to tell her why.
"Ever since we came to Yunding Mountain, you've always been acting all mysterious around me." Huo Mian looked at Qin Chu as she thought it was funny. She had no idea what he planned on doing.
