Chapter 67: Prideful
Chapter 67: Prideful Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated When Huo Mian saw the balance, she was shocked... She carefully counted the zeroes, "One, ten, hundred, thousand, ten thousand, a hundred thousand, a million?" That was right, adding on to the 800 yuan Huo Mian had before, she had a 1,000,800 in total. So, did that mean Qin Chu's monthly salary was a million yuan? Actually, a million was not a large amount of money for Qin Chu. By a conservative estimate, the GK Corporation had at least a dozen billion in assets. A million yuan was only a monthly procedure that the financial department symbolically pays the president as a salary. However, a million yuan was an astronomical figure for Huo Mian... Did that mean she could live a carefree life now? Did she marry rich? Lying on the couch, she felt surreal as she looked at the luxury condo, ownership certificate, marriage certificate, and her bank balance. It took about thirty minutes for Qin Chu to drive from Imperial Park to Hillside Manor. It was almost 7 PM when he arrived. After parking, Qin Chu discovered that there were a few other cars parked in the lot. There were a Bentley, a Maserati, and a Porsche 918. It looked like his family had visitors... Qin Chu silently opened the door with his keys and, to no surprise, saw the living room filled with people. "Chu, you're back. You're just in time for dinner, we've been waiting for you." "I'm not eating," said Qin Chu as he passed the crowd in order to go upstairs. He only came back to get some things. Then, he would be officially moved out... However, Qin Chu's parents didn't seem to know that their son was moving out... They had invited a few friends, including two young girls who looked like spoiled and pampered socialites. When Qin Chu walked down the stairs, he was carrying a paper bag containing his personal items. "Chu, let me introduce you. This is Auntie Liu's daughter, she is the daughter of the president of the Wind Walk Corporation, Gao Meina. Oh, and she is Zhao Yihuan, from Uncle Zhao's family, the daughter of the president of the Shengqi Media Association. They are both..." "Mom, I still have stuff to do so I'll be leaving now. Oh, and I've been busy with work lately so won't be living at home. I bought a condo, so call me if you need me." After speaking, Qin Chu proceeded to leave... "Chu…" mortified, Mrs. Qin called after her son a few more times to no avail. Qin Yumin was out of the country recently, traveling in Switzerland with a few friends. Qin Chu's mom seized the opportunity to invite a few women who she often had afternoon tea with to join her at home with their daughters. She wanted to create an opportunity for her son, but he didn't let her; instead, he abruptly announced that he was moving out. "Your son seems to be very busy, haha," one of the women awkwardly said, attempting to amend the situation. Mrs. Qin laughed and said, "Don't mind him. It hasn't been long since he came back, and he has been busy since he became the president of GK. He rarely even eats dinner with us." "It's fine, young people these days are all workaholics. It's good to be busy," another chuckled. "Auntie Qin, Qin Chu is so handsome! He's my type." The daughter of the Gao family shyly smiled. "Qin Chu is so prideful, but I like it," the other girl commented in satisfaction. Mrs. Qin dryly laughed and said, "Mhm, next time I'll invite him to dinner with you. It's probably busy at the corporation since he's always working overtime." Qin Chu drove straight to his new condo at Imperial Park. When he opened the door, he found Huo Mian asleep on the couch. She was wearing a tee and low-cut pants. Her white ankles were exposed, looking extremely cute and alluring. Qin Chu quietly took off his blazer to cover her... Huo Mian must have been too exhausted because she didn't notice that a jacket was placed on her... At least not until a sweet, fragrant scent reached her nose and prompted her reaction... It smelled like toast... She had spent the entire afternoon packing up at the rental apartment and didn't have the chance to cook. She was exhausted. Huo Mian sluggishly woke up, and, as her eyes opened, she saw the piercing light of the chandelier. It was only then that she realized that she wasn't at her old apartment anymore, but at her and Qin Chu's new home. "You're awake?" asked Qin Chu gently as he looked at her tenderly.
