Chapter 237: A Statement
Chapter 237: A Statement Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated In the end, Huo Mian turned around, glared at Su Yu and dropped an arrogant response. "Looks like I've been too kind when doing you injections lately…" "…" Was this brat blatantly threatening him? Huo Yanyan and Shen Jiani were enough to make her head hurt, so now that Su Yu brought up Huo Siqian, it completely stressed her out. Zhu Lingling once asked her on WeChat how she planned to deal with all this. She told her that she wanted to ignore it, which meant that she was not going to respond to anyone and just let the matter resolve itself. But looking at the current situation, it appeared that if Shen Jiani and her people didn't stir up any results, they wouldn't give up. Huo Mian was in the middle of cooking up a revenge plan to protect herself while slapping them on the face. Just as she was contemplating what to do, an online statement induced a frenzy… "Hello everyone, recently because of certain things, society and I alike have been troubled. Thus, I have especially stepped up to explain some things to everyone and clear my name. Although my last name is Huo, I have not had any contact with the Huo Family for many years, other than when my grandmother passed away, and I wanted to be there to send her off. I have no monetary connections or debt to the Huo Family, nor will I participate in their fight for inheritance. Please stop making your own assumptions, as it could negatively affect my family and I. From now on, I want to go on with my normal life and not talk about this matter any further. I would like to make it known that I will not return to the Huo family, nor will I accept anything from them that would benefit me. I won't take a single share of their inheritance, or go to their company to work. Please let me return to my normal life, thank you." At the end of the statement was her name, 'Huo Mian'. The entire statement was written in Huo Mian's tone and sounded very real. Although there wasn't a signature from Huo Mian, no one would doubt it. After all, forging one's signature was punishable by law. Seeing that the statement fit her own thoughts so perfectly, Huo Mian's mood was lifted. Other than Qin Chu, she couldn't think of anyone else who would be able to guess what she was thinking and upload a statement like that at a crucial time like this. She immediately dialed a number on her phone... The call was picked up after 3 seconds. "Hello?" Qin Chu picked up the phone. "I saw the statement. It was written beautifully, but it was just missing one sentence." "What sentence?" "You should've written that I want to cut all ties with the Huos, and never talk to them again until I die." "If I wrote that, it would make you seem narrow-minded and people will say bad things about you, which will hurt your public image." "I'm joking, I know you've thought about it all. I'm assuming… you wrote that statement yourself, and not your company's PR team, right? You carefully thought out each word for me, didn't you?" Huo Mian softly asked. "Guess your eyes didn't get worse." Big Boss Qin was acting all prideful like a lion again. That statement was the product of his lunch break. He had diligently typed it out on his laptop. Then, after confirming that there were no mistakes, he uploaded it to the internet. Because of Qin Chu's involvement, this statement was quickly disseminated amongst all the major media outlets and was immediately seen by everyone. "Qin Chu…?" "Yeah?" "I actually really want to thank you, but I won't say it this time, because you once said that I shouldn't always say thank you. I'm your wife, and it's natural for you to protect me, but I don't know what to do when you're this good to me." "I just don't want you to get hurt." "I understand, it's because I'm useless. Although I'm labeled as a genius, I'm always randomly involved in deadlocks and need you to come to save me. I was thinking, if you hadn't returned and were still in the US, what would I be doing right now..." "Nope, your 'what if' doesn't stand. I'm already by your side, and I'll never leave." Huo Mian held her phone, her eyes glistening with unshed tears… "Let's have dinner tonight, my treat." After finishing her sentence, Huo Mian hung up the phone. The corner of Qin Chu's lips lifted up slightly, he knew that his baby was feeling touched again. It was only a statement, but it conveyed everything Huo Mian wanted to say. Furthermore, it all seemed much different because it was Qin Chu who had written it personally. That night, Huo Mian rushed home. She changed into a dark blue dress shirt and black slacks, giving off the impression of a white-collar employee. As she was getting ready to leave, she got a call from Huo Siqian. He seemed to be calling her quite frequently lately… Huo Mian thought that he was going to admonish her about the statement. Surprisingly he said, "You better quit that job at South Side." "Why?" Huo Mian didn't understand. "If you don't want to cause trouble, then don't interact with Su Yu. You guys aren't compatible."
