“You have too much bad publicity. Stay low-key for a while; the company won’t treat you poorly,” Qin Chu said emotionlessly.
“President Qin those rumors are all fake. They’re meant to destroy my name. The women at Star Imperial Entertainment hate me. They hired people to say bad things about me. It’s not real. You have to believe me!”
“Sorry this is our personal time. I don’t want to discuss work here.”
Completely annoyed, Qin Chu refused to answer Annie Liang…
Annie Liang took one glance at Huo Mian, then turned and walked away…
Before she left, Annie Liang murmured to herself, “I thought that the boss had impeccable taste. It looks like he doesn’t after all.”
Qin Chu furrowed his brows…
He took out his phone, about to make a call, but Huo Mian reached out to stop him.
“Honey, let it go…”
“You know what I want to do?”
“You want to shelve Annie Liang.” Of course Huo Mian knew what Qin Chu was about to do.
He was protective of her and wouldn’t allow anyone to hurt her. Since Huo Mian heard what Annie Liang said, Qin Chu did as well.
“A person like her should be shelved…”
“But we spent so much money on her! If we shelve her now, that money would be wasted. Let’s not be so hasty…”
Huo Mian didn’t really care about what others had to say about her…
As long as they didn’t go overboard, she would always handle it with grace…
Plus, GK had stubbornly signed Annie Liang from Su Yu back then for 90 million yuan.
If they shelved her now, it would’ve all been for nothing.
“Honey, she was being such a flirt back there. Weren’t you jealous?” Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian admirably.
“Why should I be jealous? Many female celebrities are like this. Everyone is complicated in the entertainment industry. If I’m that fragile, I would’ve killed myself a long time ago.”
“Then is it because you don’t love me anymore?…” Qin Chu acted all sad.
“Then if you love me, can you seduce me tonight?”
“F***… not this again Mr. Qin, could you please stop giving your wife a hard time…” Huo Mian felt like she needed to be careful around Qin Chu from now on. He had traps set up everywhere.
After they finished the hot pot, it was already dark outside…
“Honey, let’s go watch a movie.”
“Is there anything good recently?”
“Yeah. I want to watch It Turns Out That You Are Here Too,” Huo Mian said slowly.
“Sure. We’ll watch whatever you want.”
The pair headed towards the movie theatre. Surprisingly, Huo Mian told Qin Chu not to reserve an entire auditorium…
Instead, they sat in the back row of a dark and crowded one.
The leading characters were both good-looking, but Huo Mian wasn’t really watching for them, but reliving her younger years.
She read the book a couple of years ago.
It was a similar love story to that of her and Qin Chu. Su Yunmian and Cheng Zheng, the main characters, were also high school classmates.
They fell in love, broke up, and then found each other again after many twists and turns…
People say that the feelings felt in elementary school were innocent, the feelings in junior high were confusing, and the feelings in high school were pure.
During that period, a person’s thoughts were mature enough to form their own values and outlooks.
Once they find the person they like, the feelings were genuine and weren’t mixed with any external factors and the intention wouldn’t change because of materialistic things.
After they got into university, many girls will begin to look at a man’s family background. Does he have a house and a car? Is his father rich?
Men, on the other hand, will look at a girl’s face, clothing, and bust size to determine whether she was girlfriend material…
What a materialistic world…
Huo Mian was very glad that she met Qin Chu during high school, the most beautiful time of their lives when they were still young and innocent.
Back then, the act of hand-holding led to marriage. Now? Sex doesn’t even lead to anything.
Only seven years have passed but it felt like the entire world had changed many things were no longer the way they used to be.
The only constant was the past those years that were filled with beautiful memories.
On the way back, Huo Mian fell asleep on the passenger’s seat.
Qin Chu got a call from Rick.
“Qin, can you talk right now? I need to tell you something urgent.”
“Go ahead.” Qin Chu put in his earbuds.
