Chapter 1497: The Huo Family’s Doors Will Always Stay Open for You (8)
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
It was still winter; who would open the windows at night?
Huo Mian was sure she closed the windows before bed, how could they open all of a sudden?
Did… someone come in?
At this thought, Huo Mian felt all the hairs on her body stand up. She rolled out of her bed and turned on her bedroom light. Then, she went downstairs with a flashlight.
After searching the entire house up and down, Huo Mian didn’t see anything suspicious, and she didn’t lose anything either…
Was it a hallucination? It couldn’t be, the windows were really open.
Burdened by restlessness and insomnia, Huo Mian decided to call the security guards for the security footage outside her mother’s house.
The security guard didn’t agree until Huo Mian gave him 1,000 yuan.
However… the footage was completely normal.
“Miss Huo, I told you everything was fine. The security here is really tight, no one would be able to barge in like that. If they did, we would know.”
Huo Mian’s heart was heavy as she returned home. When she got to the door of the townhouse, she turned around and looked up at the cameras. Then, she glanced at her bedroom… It was actually a blind angle.
No wonder the cameras didn’t catch anything.
At this thought, she became more frightened than ever. She wanted to call Qin Chu, but she knew he wasn’t at liberty to see her.
She couldn’t call Su Yu either, because it was too late and if the reporters caught them on camera, they would have to explain themselves all over again.
In the end, Huo Mian decided to call Jiang Xiaowei, since Gao Ran was staying at Zhu Lingling’s apartment and it would seem troublesome to bother them.
Plus, Jiang Xiaowei was pregnant and barely did anything with her husband that would make a guest feel uncomfortable. (TL note: hinting they would be doing extreme sports in bed)
After some thought, Huo Mian called Xiaowei, who immediately sent over a car to pick her up.
– At Jiang Xiaowei and Wei Liao’s mansion –
“Mian, are you hungry? Do you want something to eat?”
Huo Mian shook her head.
“Your complexion is awful…”
“Xiaowei, I don’t think it was a hallucination… I think someone came in, that person avoided security cameras.”
“Are you sure?”
“No, but… it’s the only plausible explanation, the windows were indeed opened.”
“Could the wind have unhinged it?”
“No, because my mom checked all the windows before leaving, everything was locked from the inside.”
“That’s weird… how could someone open a window that was locked from the inside? Mian… your mother’s place isn’t safe, you can’t stay there anymore.”
“What should I do then?” Huo Mian was also worried.
“You can live with us for a while.”
“No, I can’t, it’s too much trouble for you. I can stay at a hotel,” Huo Mian said.
“No, you can’t live alone, it’s too dangerous. No matter where you are, trouble will follow… Right now, you need to live in a pack.”
“Live in a pack…” Huo Mian felt a little awkward.
“I knew Qin Chu wouldn’t ask for a divorce for no reason, it seems like you guys are both in trouble.” Jiang Xiaowei was smart; like Huo Mian, she suspected that Huo Siqian had something to do with this incident. “Just stay here, the Wei Family is very protective of me and our child, I have a 24-hour security detail. This mansion is like an iron box, haha.”
“Xiaowei… let me think about it.”
“Does Su Yu know about this?”
Huo Mian shook her head.
Jiang Xiaowei added, “He would probably worry to death if he knew about it.”
“Don’t tell Qin Chu either, or else he’s going to feel even more pressured than before. Anyways, don’t tell anyone about it,” Huo Mian said slowly.
– The VIP room at the First Hospital –
“Chu, what’s going on? The media has been spreading malicious news,” Mrs. Qin held Qin Chu’s hand and asked quietly.
“News of you and Mian getting divorced…”
“It’s true, we got divorced.”
“What did you say?” Mrs. Qin was dumbstruck.
