Huo Jinyao didn’t seem to notice the doubtful and curious expression in Su Qingsang’s eyes. He took her hand and got back in the car. “Let’s go. Let’s go eat something.”
Su Qingsang still held the marriage certificate in her hand. As she stared at it, she had no idea where to put it. Huo Jinyao reached out and took the marriage certificate from her hand. “I will keep it safe for you.”
“Huo Jinyao,” Su Qingsang exclaimed.
Why on earth did he marry me?
He took her to a nearby upscale restaurant half an hour later. Su Qingsang had also been here several times and knew this place was quite pricey, so she couldn’t help but look at Huo Jinyao.
They entered the restaurant, picked a table in the corner by the window, and sat down. After they ordered their food, Su Qingsang realized that Huo Jinyao had been staring at her and she felt somewhat uncomfortable. “What are you looking at?”
“I’m looking at my wife,” said Huo Jinyao with a playful expression. “My wife is so beautiful, why wouldn’t I look at her?”
This guy is so unreasonable. He can’t stay serious even for a minute. Su Qingsang looked at Huo Jinyao. She was known for being a rational person, so his words further convinced her that he had some ulterior motives. What exactly does he want from me? I don’t know how to solve this problem.
Su Qingsang stood up. “I’m going to use the bathroom.”
Huo Jinyao stared at her as she quickly walked away and wondered if this was all an illusion. Why are my compliments not making Su Qingsang happy?
He looked at the window. Night had come and the lights were turned on in the restaurant. He saw his reflection in a window and thought about how handsome he was.
Yep, that woman has poor taste. Huo Jinyao was certain of that.
Su Qingsang stayed in the bathroom for a while, but it was not because she felt shy about what Huo Jinyao had just said.
At first, when Huo Jinyao had moved into her house, she panicked a little bit, but now she started to take significant precautions against this man.
What are his motives? Until she figured out what he wanted, all she could do was keep her thoughts secret from Huo Jinyao.
As for his motives... It doesn’t matter since they will be exposed sooner or later. Su Qingsang was sure about that.
Huo Jinyao noticed that Su Qingsang looked much calmer when she came back. That made him somewhat confused.
Maybe Su Qingsang is not used to compliments he thought. It’s not a big deal. Maybe she’ll get used to it if I compliment her more.
When they got halfway through their dinner, Su Qingsang got a phone call.
She took a look at Huo Jinyao and he looked back at her, suggesting that it was okay to answer it. Su Qingsang picked up the phone.
It was Su Chenghui. He called to remind her that since they had been married for three days, she should come home tomorrow with Huo Jinyao. It was a Chinese tradition.
This phone call took Su Qingsang by surprise. She thought that neither Li Qianxue nor Su Peizhen wanted to see her. Nevertheless, it was a tradition for newlyweds to return to the bride’s home. Knowing Su Peizhen, didn’t she want Su Qingsang to be as far away from her as possible?
“What’s wrong? Is there anything that’s troubling you?” Huo Jinyao asked.
Su Qingsang looked at Huo Jinyao’s face. This guy is really handsome, there is no doubt about that. But right now, being handsome is useless.
“Huo Jinyao, you have to accompany me to my home tomorrow, do you know that?” she asked.
“Yeah.” Huo Jinyao nodded, looking like he knew exactly what she was talking about. “It’s the tradition to return to the bride’s home, I know that.”
Does he really know? Su Qingsang had actually suspected he knew nothing about that.
“My family...” Her family was not easy to deal with. If he didn’t want to go to her parent’s home, she could tell them that they had gone on a honeymoon.
There was a chance they could avoid some conflicts if they didn’t see each other.
Su Qingsang: What do you do on earth?
Huo Jinyao: Security guard.
Su Qingsang: How is that possible?
Huo Jinyao: It’s true.
Su Qingsang, after a while: You are a liar.
Huo Jinyao: Mmm, by security guard, I meant guarding the security of all my companies. (Cough) In short, a security guard.
Su Qingsang: Go to hell!
