Chapter 198: Romance
Chapter 198: Romance Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated After debating with herself for a minute, Huo Mian climbed upstairs, opened her closet, and found that new clothes had been added at some point without her knowledge. What was weird was that Qin Chu never told her about these things. After browsing the selection, Huo Mian finally chose a rose-colored dress from Dolce & Gabbana's summer collection. After a moment's thought, she decided to go light with her makeup and only wore a pair of white heels underneath. Looking in the mirror, Huo Mian felt a lot more comfortable, possibly because she was used to not wearing makeup, so the occasional makeup look made her feel pretty. Qin Chu was very punctual, arriving not a minute earlier or later than the 10 minutes he had promised. Right as Huo Mian got downstairs, Qin Chu drove up, looking at Huo Mian through the car window. He was stunned. His wife didn't usually dress up, but when she did, she definitely didn't lose to those actresses or models on TV. Furthermore, Huo Mian exerted this aura that normal people didn't have. On the passenger seat, Huo Mian warily asked, "Where are we going?" "To eat." "Um… Is there some special occasion today?" Huo Mian suddenly asked. Qin Chu turned his head to glance at her, and, after a moment of hesitation, finally said in a disappointed tone, "No." No more words were spoken before they arrived at the rotating restaurant atop the Pullman Hotel. You could see the night view of the whole city from up there, and the rumor was that the head chef here had trained in a Michelin-Star restaurant and was specialized in making Western dishes and desserts. It was really difficult to reserve a spot here. The restaurant only served 6 tables per night and only 2 people per table. Qin Chu and Huo Mian sat at the table with the best view, and the atmosphere in the restaurant is exceptionally romantic. Every corner of the floor was filled with roses, and there was even a handsome caucasian man playing the violin for them. "It's so pretty here, I didn't know that a place like this existed in C City," Huo Mian exclaimed. Just then, Qin Chu pulled out a small, delicate ornamental box from god knows where, and pushed it across the table, "This is for you." "What?" "Open it, and you'll see." Qin Chu was purposefully vague. Huo Mian grabbed the box, opening it slowly to reveal a diamond ring inside. "Are you… proposing?" Seeing the ring, Huo Mian raised her head to ask Qin Chu. "No, I just think it suits you." Huo Mian slid the ring onto her finger, and it was beautiful, not to mention how perfectly it fit. Most importantly, it was a style that she liked - very small, inconspicuous, and not at all over the top. Qin Chu's present was proof of how well he knew her. He would never buy her a Golden Egg to show off his wealth. "It's beautiful, thank you," After putting it on, Huo Mian didn't want to take it off, waving her hand about. Qin Chu smiled. It looked like his efforts in designing this ring himself had not been wasted. He picked the diamond personally, then sent it overseas to manufacture before finally flying it back. He spent more than 3 million yuan on this gift, but of course, Huo Mian didn't need to know that. She thought that it was something that you could buy in stores, like a normal ring worth around 10,000 to 20,000 yuan. At that moment, the servers began to bring out the food: a medium-well steak, foie gras, caviar, and Australian lobster. And a clearly expensive bottle of red wine. Huo Mian thought about the date in her head, it wasn't her birthday today, nor Qin Chu's… But this atmosphere… Qin Chu silently poured two glasses of red wine, handing one to Huo Mian. Then, he lifted his own glass and said, "Happy Anniversary." Huo Mian paused. Anniversary? Suddenly remembering, she said apologetically, "Sorry, I forgot that it is our 100th day wedding anniversary today." That's right, it was the beginning of summer when they had gotten their wedding certificate, and it was already the end of summer, meaning that an entire three months had gone by. "No worries, it's fine as long as I remember." Qin Chu raised his glass and took a small sip. Huo Mian also raised her glass and took a sip, it would be impossible to ever forget a scene like this, at such a beautiful restaurant on a special day like this, with such a special person. "You even prepared a gift, but I don't have anything for you." Huo Mian felt a bit awkward. If she had known, she would've bought him something… "If you're serious about giving me a gift, why don't you give me a kiss. It'll make me very happy," Qin Chu said in all seriousness. Huo Mian's face reddened… Yet she still rose gracefully, walking to Qin Chu's side, and aiming to kiss his cheek. Right as her lips were about to touch his cheek, Qin Chu suddenly turned his face, meeting her lips with his. Huo Mian immediately panicked… This as*face!
