Huo Mian jogged over to Qin Chu’s car, immediately jumping into his embrace as soon as he got off.
She held him tight…
“Your car was just behind mine, but why didn’t I see you? Were you in stealth mode?” asked Huo Mian with a smile on her face. U.p.dated by Novelfull.Com
Only when she was in front of Qin Chu would she reveal such a childish side.
Qin Chu pinched her face with spoiling adoration. “I drove over from another freeway. I went to D City this afternoon and came back from there.”
Because Huo Mian was too exhausted when she got off work, she didn’t even bother to change, so she came back in her white lab coat.
Her whole body smelled of formaldehyde, and after she leaped onto Qin Chu, his shirt was immediately tainted with the smell.
“Honey… how devoted are you? You’ve come back with the smell of formaldehyde.”
“What? You don’t like it?” Huo Mian threatened half-seriously.
“No, I like it very much.”
“That’s more like it.”
The couple talked with laughter and smiles as they walked into the old mansion, hand in hand.
Uncle Li had already arranged for dinner. It was Thai-cuisine tonight, and there was even delicious pineapple rice.
Huo Mian’s appetite immediately spiked at the sight of all the food…
“Eat slower…” Qin Chu didn’t know how to respond when he saw how carelessly she ate.
Then he caringly passed some warm water to her.
Huo Mian took a sip and then finally remembered what Zhu Lingling asked of her.
“Honey, I have a favor to ask of you.”
“What is it?” Qin Chu said as he gracefully ate dinner.
“Ahem… do you know of the ‘Night of Lawrence’s Pearl’?”
“Yes.” Qin Chu nodded.
“Lingling said it was some Night of the Gamble God party for three days and three nights, and she really wants to go, but they say that there are hardly any invitations, so could you help me get one for her? You have a way, right?”
“Nope.” Qin Chu immediately refused.
Huo Mian, “…”
“How is that possible? You’re the great Mr. Qin, honey… you definitely have an invitation, right?” Huo Mian didn’t want to get Lingling’s hopes up for nothing, and no one would believe that Qin Chu didn’t have access to invitations given his status and power.
Qin Chu slowly placed down the fork in his hand, beside the steak…
“Honey, I really don’t have an invitation.”
“How is that possible?” Huo Mian was suddenly a bit disappointed because she didn’t think that Qin Chu was lying.
Hints of hope suddenly relit inside Huo Mian when she heard the word ‘but’…
“But I can bring anyone and however many people I’d like onto the ship, without invitations.”
“Whoa… then why didn’t you say so sooner, you got me scared there for a second.” Huo Mian was quite scared, but in the end, she found out that she didn’t need an invitation at all, because Mr. Qin could get on, nonetheless?
He could board the boat with his face… that was the proof of real status…
“I haven’t finished yet.” Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian with a smile on his face, feeling that his Little Dumb Mian could also be so cute at the same time.
“So Lingling can go, right?” Huo Mian asked to make sure.
“Of course. Gao Ran’s going as well.”
“Haha, that’d be great, those two could get together again. I think that they might’ve arranged this all along,” Huo Mian laughed.
“Honey, come with me tomorrow night as well.”
“Me? I shouldn’t, I’m not a big fan of events like that.” Huo Mian shook her head and didn’t want to get herself mixed up in this rowdiness at all.
“But I want you to come.”
“Why?” Huo Mian was a bit surprised because Qin Chu rarely invited her to boring events like luxurious galas.
