"She really came, I'm not lying to you, that woman is unbelievable" Mrs. Qin droned on and on.
Qin Chu was silent for a while and then quietly said, "Mom, I love her very much."
"Why are you such a good-for-nothing, do you know what she said to me? She said that she got married to you because she wanted to divorce you and inherit your money!"
"I'd rather it be that way. I have a lot of money. If she loves me, I can give her as much money as she wants. As long as she doesn't leave me," Qin Chu replied slowly.
"That woman also said that she didn't want to get divorced anymore, she wants to piss me off until I'm dead, and stand up against me for the rest of my life. Look at how evil she is, she's too young to be this evil! What did the Qin family do to deserve this? Son, why would you fall for a woman like that? There are so many women in the world, and you had to pick her? Are you trying to kill me?" Mrs. Qin wanted to tattle to his son about how rude and evil Huo Mian was, but to her disappointment, her son remained unmoved.
"She said that she didn't want a divorce anymore?" A pleasant surprise flashed before Qin Chu's eyes, and his tone changed slightly.
"Yeah, she wants to piss me off until I drop dead. This woman isn't well educated by her parents, her character is awful. Son listen to mom, don't stay with her. You guys need to get divorced. We have a legal team, let's frame her for cheating on you or something, and make her leave without a cent of our money" Mrs. Qin rambled on nonstop.
However, Qin Chu didn't listen to any of that; he only had one phrase in his mind, and that was 'Huo Mian said she didn't want to get divorced anymore'
No matter what she meant by that, Qin Chu felt better, as long as she didn't want to divorce him anymore.
"Mom Huo Mian will be your only daughter-in-law in this life, please be kind to her." Then, Qin Chu hung up the phone.
"What? You want me to be kind to her are you trying to kill me as well? Hello? Hello?" Mrs. Qin shrieked uncontrollably.
However, Qin Chu had already hung up the phone
When she called back, his phone went straight to voicemail
Furious, Mrs. Qin complained to the housekeeper all night.
That night, when Qin Yumin came back, she recreated the scene to him.
Upon hearing what happened, Qin Yumin said earnestly, "Things wouldn't have gotten this bad if you hadn't gone to their house to cause a scene. I hear that her mother was pretty seriously injured, and I think you overdid it this time. It's not weird for Huo Mian to treat you like that." (TL Note: Noodletown's spoiler page updated to unveil this clue left by the author)
"What are you talking about? Why are you taking her side?"
"I'm not taking sides, I'm just speaking the truth." Qin Yumin sighed.
"Speaking the truth? The truth is that little b*tch came to declare war at my house and said that she was going to live under my eyeballs for the rest of my life. Seriously, she's shameless," Mrs. Qin shrieked.
"No, I can't believe that she would challenge me like that. I'm not scared of her, I will make her regret that she ever crossed me." Mrs. Qin had a hot temper as soon as she was provoked, she would immediately erupt. Therefore, she was determined to fight Huo Mian to the death, rather than think back at what she might have done wrong
That night, after Huo Mian left the Qin Manor, she didn't go back to the hospital. Rather, she walked alone on the streets in her beige wind coat.
The autumn night felt nice, and cool breezes blew past her now and then. At that moment, she didn't know where she was supposed to go.
She didn't want to go back to Imperial Park, and no one was at her mother's home because both her mother and Zhixin were at the hospital.
"Sis, where are you?" Zhixin called.
"Sis, our mom is awake, you should come back," Jing Zhixin said anxiously.
