“Just now. I didn’t hear from you so I called home and you didn’t pick up. I figured you were doing overtime.”
Huo Mian got into the front passenger seat and asked excitedly, “Where are we going?”
“How about Ah-Xin’s Ramen?” Qin Chu turned towards her and asked.
“You’re the best, Darling! Love you…” Huo Mian was so happy that she leaned over and kissed Qin Chu’s cheek.
Qin Chu smiled and said, “Love isn’t just words. You have to prove it through action, like through making…”
He thought Huo Mian would cover her face with embarrassment when she heard this but Huo Mian did not react as expected.
Instead, she said openly, “Okay, let’s shake the car.” (Note: slang for doing the nasty in the car)
“What? Shake the car?” Now, Qin Chu was the one deprived of words.
“What? Are you scared?” Huo Mian further provoked.
“Scared? Me? Impossible! What I mean is that I’m worried that you’d be too tired after a busy day of work… If I knew ‘shaking the car’ would happen tonight, I would have driven the SUV. The sedan just doesn’t have as much space to do it. I wanted to do it but also unlock different positions…”
“Unlock different positions? Fine, I give up. You win, Chu!”
Huo Mian had wanted to act calm but she was no match compared to Qin Chu’s dirty mind. She obviously needed a lot more training to catch up with him.
Defeating her was an easy task for Qin Chu.
They were playing pop music in the car. Suddenly, Huo Mian felt that her life was magical.
“Honey, are you tired?”
“Yeah… I did the operation for Sun Dahai’s mother this afternoon. It was very energy-consuming. It’s been too long since I held a scalpel.”
“How was it? Was it successful?”
“Yeah, pretty much but how well she recovers will be dependent on her mentality and health conditions.”
“Great, you’re the best!” Qin Chu admired Huo Mian’s responsible attitude towards her work.
After an approximately 20 minute drive, they arrived at the back alley of the 2nd High School.
Since it was right before evening self-study, there were still many student customers eating at Ah-Xin’s Ramen.
“Two bowls of ramen please…” Qin Chu found a spot in the restaurant.
The two sat across from each other. Ah-Xin Ramen had not changed its décor since the time they were students. Another thing that didn’t change was how lively 2nd High School was.
They immediately felt as they traveled through time…
“Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Qin. Where are those cute twins of yours?” the owner greeted them. He was very familiar with their family.
“The twins didn’t come. We just came by after work,” Huo Mian responded with a smile.
“You two sure are lucky that your children are so smart and understanding,” the owner praised.
Huo Mian smiled and didn’t say anything else.
“Mo Xue’er came over today,” Qin Chu said, as he recalled what happened during the day.
“Mo Xue’er? What does she want with you?” Huo Mian asked.
“She said she wanted to team up.”
“Team up with you to go against Huo Siqian?” Huo Mian immediately figured out what Mo Xue’er wanted.
Qin Chu nodded.
“She betrays people faster than a flip of a page. Haha… She kept proclaiming how much she loves him and now that he’s at his weakest, she wants to give him the last kick. Isn’t the Xiang family supporting her? Wouldn’t teaming up with us be redundant?”
“The Xiang family is powerful but not powerful enough to shake Huo Siqian’s roots… She knows the history between me and Huo Siqian so she probably wanted to persuade me to help her… From the looks of it, she really wants Huo Siqian dead,” Qin Chu analyzed.
Huo Mian shook her head and said, “Maybe not. Mo Xue’er is a capricious person. She might just be playing the victim but is actually still working with Huo Siqian. We shouldn’t trust her. Even if she gives us evidence, we won’t know if it’s real or not.”
Huo Mian despised Mo Xue’er and thought there was something fundamentally wrong with her being.
“Yeah. I rejected her. Even if teaming up was her real intention, I wouldn’t say yes. I don’t need anyone’s help… I also think I’m the only one capable of defeating Huo Siqian,” Qin Chu said in his usual arrogant tone.
“Huh? Honey, look and see who’s there…” Huo Mian saw a luxury car parked outside.
Huo Mian tapped on Qin Chu’s shoulder and pointed outside. She was surprised to see the person walking out of the car.
