Chapter 290: Does Your Mom Know That You Are This Fierce? (7) Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated "If you fed me this way, I would be very happy." After Qin Chu hung up the call, he looked at Huo Mian with a serious face. Huo Mian's face immediately reddened like a tomato... "We're at your company. Isn't this inappropriate?" "This is my company and you are my wife. What's wrong with that?" Qin Chu objected. Huo Mian was speechless once again... She had to admit, she could never keep her cool in front of Mr. Qin. The afternoon tea took a long time to finish, thanks to their endless lovey-dovey sweetness. It was only after Huo Mian's lips had become a bit swollen from the kissing did Qin Chu finally let her go. As she left his office, Huo Mian lowered her head and walked quickly, afraid of being seen by anyone. To her surprise, she bumped into someone at the elevators. "Sorry." Huo Mian immediately apologized. "No need to apologize." Jiang Linyue smiled elegantly. She had waited for almost 40 minutes to catch a glimpse of the important guest inside the president's office. As Huo Mian entered her sight, however, Jiang Linyue was disappointed... The woman wasn't blessed with a face that could make a country fall for her, nor was her body anything to gawk at. Even her clothes were normal as could be… other than a young and clean appearance, there was nothing out of the ordinary. Huo Mian was headed for work in the morning and was therefore only dressed in a white blouse, a pair of casual black pants, and a pair of black flats, as old-fashioned as one could be. She was really nothing to look at, especially compared to a beautiful woman like Jiang Linyue. "Are you… a friend of the president?" Jiang Linyue inquired. "Uh… yes." Huo Mian nodded. "I've never seen you before. Is this your first time here?" "Um… I think this is my second time." Huo Mian thought hard, trying to remember her last visit. "Are you the president's friend from the States?" Jiang Linyue felt that ever since the president came back, he had been too busy to make any friends. It was more likely that the woman in front of her was someone he had met in America. "Not really, we've known each other for a long time..." Huo Mian replied honestly. "Oh, that's great! President Qin is a very nice person. He's a dependable friend." "You seem to know a lot about your president?" Huo Mian looked at Jiang Linyue. Huo Mian was no fool, she could clearly sense the intentions behind the woman standing in front of her. Why else would a woman ask her so many random questions? "Let me introduce myself. My name is Jiang Linyue, the director of GK's Department of Luxury Good Designs and a valued assistant of the president. If you've ever followed our company's jewelry designs, I was the one one who created the currently popular ones on the market." Jiang Linyue introduced herself proudly, wanting to intimidate Huo Mian and give her some pressure... Unfortunately, Jiang Linyue didn't know about Huo Mian's input on the design. It was Huo Mian who had convinced Qin Chu to use her design in the first place. Her arrogant speech was nothing more than embarrassing in front of Huo Mian. Luckily for her, Huo Mian wasn't one to rudely expose her. "Oh yeah? That's really impressive." Huo Mian smiled. "Thank you for the compliment." Just then, the elevator arrived. Huo Mian walked in... "Are you coming?" Huo Mian initiated an invite. Just as Jiang Linyue decided to get in, she suddenly backed away as if she had suddenly thought of something. "No it's ok, I just thought of something I needed to do. See you next time," Jiang Linyue said smiling. Because the elevator was dedicated to the president, it would've been difficult for her to explain herself if anyone saw her using it. The woman in front of her, however, was allowed to use the elevator to her heart's content. Was she really that important to the president? Was she the woman Mrs. Qin spoke of? The one that was sitting in the president's car? As those thoughts raced through her mind, Jiang Linyue felt a gut-wrenching sense of impending loss. At night, when Qin Chu arrived home, Huo Mian suddenly remembered the woman named Jiang Linyue. "Honey, does Jiang Linyue from your company like you?" "Why the sudden question?" Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian, intrigued. She wasn't the type to get jealous, so she wouldn't have asked without a reason.
