Chapter 322: Mr. and Mrs. Huo
Ning Meng and Huo Beichen looked at one another after witnessing Qi Shan swallowing the cake. Seeing a smile curving up on Huo Beichen's face, Ning Meng couldn't help but ask the poor assistant, "Qi Shan… how's the taste of the cake?"
After giving it some thought, Qi Shan elaborated, "The cake's butter had a peculiar taste to it. Is this a new flavor?"
Ning Meng stared at the man, wondering if she should tell him the truth. Well, should she? Or should she not?
However, upon seeing Ning Meng's conflicted expression, Qi Shan seemed to have misread the missus' intention. "Oh, come on, it was just a slice of cake! Fine, if you're that upset about it… I'll buy another 10 slices of the same flavor to make it up to you."
Ning Meng shook her head. "Oh, no. There's no need to."
This poor kid… Ning Meng decided to keep it to herself and not tell him the truth. This… was the kinder option to go with, given the circumstances.
QI Shan looked at her doubtfully. "Are you sure?"
"Yes, I'm sure."
"Okay, if you say so."
Then, Qi Shan walked toward the indoors. "I'll bring back 2 slices of the Butter Cakes. I'll have one and Zhen Shanmei will have the other."
After seeing Qi Shan walk into the building, Ning Meng quickly took out her phone and sent a message to Zhen Shanmei: [Shanmei! DON'T KISS QI SHAN ON THE LIPS TONIGHT!]
Zhen Shanmei: [Why?]
Ning Meng: [Don't ask, but you can trust me on that.]
Zhen Shanmei: [Okay. Whatever makes you happy.]
A few moments later, Ning Meng and Huo Beichen stood up to leave the building.
As they were on the way to the carpark, Su Ye suddenly asked, "Missus, may I inquire if you have some free time to spare tonight?"
Ning Meng looked at him curiously. "Yeah, I have some free time. What's up?"
"You are now officially the new owner of this mall, so, there are a few documents that need your signature on it. I could bring them to Yuxiu Garden for you later. At your earliest convenience, of course."
Ning Meng stared at Huo Beichen in confusion. "What? I'm the owner?"
This was not like a few billion being transferred to her bank account or giving her a Centurion Card. This was a huge shopping mall! This was like giving her a few dozen billions of Yuan in one go!
Huo Beichen, who seemed to know what she was thinking about, opened his mouth to speak. "You are my wife. I own it. You own it. No difference, really."
Ning Meng was touched upon hearing this. "Aww~ Hubby! You must be my Guardian Angel!"
Seriously? She was this touched after he had spent a mere few dozen billion Yuan for her? A smile curved up on Huo Beichen's face. If he showed her the great empire that he had built for her, would she be even more overjoyed?
Nonetheless, she was already this overwhelmed by the purchase of one shopping mall… perhaps it would be prudent for him to present the rest of his wealth to her later.
Stroking Ning Meng's hair, Huo Beichen smiled. "How could you be this adorable?"
Qi Shan and Su Ye were speechless when they saw this.
What a mouthful of dog food! And in the middle of the day, too!
Qi Shan almost wanted to scream out his thoughts.
‘Boss, this woman is a gold digger! She is only in love with you because of your money! How could you think that this woman is adorable?'
It was as the saying went—"Love makes us blind". His boss was now definitely blinded by love!
After reaching home, Ning Meng thought it over long and hard before finally reinstalling the Weibo app.
After a few minutes of checking, she learned that the news about Huo Beichen spending billions for Ning Meng had now become one of the Top 10 Hot Searches on Weibo.
One of the hottest tags was #JustWhoIsNingMengToMrHuo#.
