2551 Powerful Psychological Tactic (1)
“It’s not that serious…” Qin Chu responded faintly.
“This… really isn’t something the vice director would do.” Looking at those pictures, Zhang Manlin added fuel to the flame, sounding as if she felt bad for Qin Chu.
“I’m not mad she had dinner with that man, I’m just mad that she said she was going to work overtime and therefore couldn’t attend the business gathering tonight. That obviously wasn’t the case.”
“So… Vice Director Huo lied to you and had dinner with that man instead?” Zhang Manlin asked.
Qin Chu looked down but didn’t respond.
“Do you know that guy though?” she asked again.
Yeah, he’s our high school classmate.”
“Oh, if that’s the case, I’m sure nothing happened. Plus, Vice Director Huo doesn’t look like someone who would cheat, am I right?” Zhang Manlin said fakely.
“It’s fine that they went to dinner, the problem is she lent him five million yuan.”
“Um, five million yuan? Vice Director Huo sure is rich…”
“It’s all my money, she doesn’t earn that much. Five million isn’t a small figure,” Qin Chu said on purpose.
Carefully observing Qin Chu’s facial expressions, Zhang Manlin tested the waters. “Is it really true? Maybe it’s just a rumor. No matter how rich you guys are, five million yuan is still a lot to lend to a friend. I think you should look into this. Vice Director Huo might be innocent and you might’ve wronged her…”
It seemed like she was talking in favor of Huo Mian, but a smart person would notice that her comment would only make things worse.
“I’ve looked into it already, it’s true.”
“You investigated Vice Director Huo? I thought…” Zhang Manlin paused on purpose.
“What did you think?” Qin Chu raised an eyebrow.
“I thought… you loved each other so much that you would trust each other with your own lives,” Zhang Manlin replied.
“Haha, I used to trust her, but recently… she’s always been coming home late and barely even takes care of the twins. Those who don’t know she’s married would assume she’s single. In the beginning, I thought she was really busy, but later I realized that…” Qin Chu’s voice trailed off.
“Realized what?” Zhang Manlin asked carefully.
“Once, my daughters and I visited the hospital, and we saw her flirting with a doctor called Liu Ze.”
“Liu Ze? Oh, I know who he is. He’s good looking, from a rich background, and drives around that flashy purple Ferrari… But I heard that he’s just classmates with Vice Director Huo. Don’t you know him too?”
“What classmates? He left after the first semester, and Mian and I barely interacted with him during that time. That’s why her actions hurt me, I had her followed because I became disappointed in her actions. That’s how I found out that she lent Wei Dong five million yuan.”
“If that’s really the case, then Vice Director Huo is really in the wrong. Why can’t she treasure a great husband like you?”
“So, do you still think we really love each other?” Qin Chu looked Zhang Manlin in the eyes ever-so-sincerely.
Her face immediately turned red; Qin Chu had never looked at her like this before…
