What if My Brother is Too Good? - Chapter 143
For some strange reason, Huo Wu had an odd feeling coming from this simple sentence. She tightened her lips, picked up the wine glass, and toasted Huo Yusen, “Thank you, big brother.”
Huo Wu wasn’t exactly alcohol tolerant, so she sat down after only taking two small sips of the wine.
Seeing the wholesome interactions between the siblings, Huo Yuan laughed satisfactorily.
Then, Huo Yuan seemed to think of something, and sighed. “Our little princess grew up in a blink of an eye too. She’s going to be in college soon.” Huo Yuan took a sip of the wine, and continued, “Dad is a very open-minded person. I’ll let you date in college. Don’t be like your older brother, who’s still single when he’s twenty-six already.”
After this sentence, the fishball that Huo Wu just picked up fell back to the bowl with a thud.
Zhang Minglan passed away early, so Huo Yuan was the only person caring about their future affairs.
Huo Wu didn’t have the chance to say anything yet when Huo Yusen said cooly, “Dad, Ah Wu is only eighteen.”
Hearing this, Huo Yuan glared at Huo Yusen and said unsatisfactorily, “So? Your mom dated me when she was sixteen. Ah Wu is eighteen. She’s not that young anymore.”
While her big brother and her father were arguing, Huo Wu just lowered her head and ate quietly. Occasionally, she would eavesdrop on their conversation.
From their conversation, Huo Wu learned a lot about the love history of Huo Yuan and Zhang Minglan. From his words, it wasn’t hard to imagine how sweet their relationship was at the time. They were probably truly in love back then. Unfortunately, Zhang Minglan passed away too early, and Huo Yuan had too much power and responsibilities.
And now, nothing was the same anymore.
Not long ago, Yu Xinxin told her how she saw Huo Yuan with a girl not much older than them at a luxury store. The girl was very pretty and delicate, and Huo Yuan seemed to like her very much.
Good thing Huo Wu wasn’t the actual owner of the body, and she knew somewhat about the love history of Huo Yuan. Therefore, when she heard this news from Yu Xinxin, she wasn’t too surprised.
She just felt a bit regretful.
What a pity it was for the once moving love of Huo Yuan and Zhang Minglan to be covered up by the ruthlessness of time.
After gaokao, it was an almost three-month long break.
But before the scores were out, Huo Wu spent most of her time waiting quietly at home for the results.
It was the first time in both of her lives she tried to achieve something so seriously. In her past life, she didn’t even try this hard to get the main female role from huge directors.
Good thing the time during the break passed by quickly, and it was soon the night of the results.
The scores came out a bit late, so Huo Wu didn’t sleep and sat in front of her computer waiting.
Because Huo Wu seemed to care about the score a lot, the two men of the Huo family also pushed back all their other commitments and waited for the score alongside Huo Wu.
Suddenly, Huo Wu’s class’s WeChat group began having many notifications.
【Want Kaikai: The scores are out! You can check them now @everyone】
【Zhou Zhou: Omg, my hands are shaking so much from this!】
After seeing their chat, Huo Wu hurriedly typed in her IDs and began searching for her sores.
After pressing enter, Huo Wu looked at the screen with disbelief.
This was way beyond her expectations. She couldn’t help but rub her eyes and look at the screen carefully again.
It was still 612.
Then, Huo Yuan laughed happily first. “Our Ah Wu did so well! Dad will definitely give you an amazing graduation party!”
Hearing this, Huo Wu finally confirmed what she was seeing.
She couldn’t help but smile too.
She did it!
Her gaokao score was 50 points higher than what she expected.
She can go to an even better school than originally planned.
It was really true that one’s hard work will be compensated. No pain no gain. The old saying was true after all.
While Huo Wu was still deep in her happiness, she fell into a cold but gentle hug.
A voice that was as deep and melodious as the cello sounded next to her ears. “Congratulations. You did well.”
Huo Wu blinked her eyes and forced her tears back.
She hugged Huo Yusen back and replied with a soft sound.
After getting her score, Huo Wu couldn’t help but show off her score on WeChat.
She posted a picture of her score along with the caption: “Liking this post will give you good luck~”
All the bot friends that the original host of the body added were deleted by Huo Wu. So all her friends on WeChat were newly added by her.
Since her friends were mostly classmates of the same grade, many people didn’t sleep yet due to their excitement.
Tonight will likely be a sleepless night for most people.
