Chapter 5: Another Son…(3)
“Doctor Gu, what are you going to prepare?” She casually smiled and supported her head using the palm of her hand. “Do you want me to help you?”
Gu Yizhou glanced over her face and lightly said: “The ingredients that are readily available in the house right now are not that many. It was just probably enough to make an Italian steak pasta for two.”
Steak Pasta ^_^
And with her!
Gu Yuanyuan directly volunteered and hastily rolled up her sleeves. “I’ll help you wash the dishes.”
Gu Yizhou initially wanted to refuse, but seeing her excited and happy form, all he could do was to swallow back the words in his mouth. Then, he gave her two pieces of tomatoes. “Peel it.”
Gu Yuanyuan had not been in the kitchen to do some work for a long time now. However, it didn’t matter to her as she still did the same usual thing in the kitchen and even done it well. She obliviously said: “Erbao, after I peeled off its skin, hand me the celery, and I’ll wash it.”
Gu Yizhou was dealing with the steak when Gu Yuanyuan loudly called out the word ‘Erbao’ with her clear and pleasant voice. He was not deaf so, how could he not hear it?
Gu Yuanyuan didn’t realize that she called out ‘Erbao’. Noticing that Gu Yizhou was still busy handling the steak, making it not convenient for him to hand the celery out, she walked around and took it herself.
While holding the kitchen knife on his hand, Gu Yizhou was staring at the steak in front of him. He couldn’t continue do it anymore.
Vaguely, the familiar gentle and soft voice rang out in his ears.
“Be careful!” A cry of alarm pulled him back from his diverging thoughts. Gu Yuanayuan hurriedly opened his hands out to check it. Just now, the knife was about to slice through his own hand.
“Are you tired?” Gu Yuanyuan asked as she suddenly recalled that her second son had performed three consecutive operations at his work on the night shift before.
While on the operating table, a doctor must be highly concentrated and focused on his work at hand. Therefore, after performing three consecutive operations, Gu Yizhou must be very tired at the moment.
“You should go back and take a rest. I’ll do it.” Gu Yuanyuan softly advised.
How do you make an Italian steak pasta?
Should you just dumped all the ingredients in a pot, like in a stew?
“I’m okay. It was nothing.” Gu Yizhou moved down his wrists away from her hold. He concluded that he was just probably tired, and maybe that’s why he was having some kind of bizarre illusions. Presently, however, with just her mere presence alone, his thoughts were kept on getting distracted.
“I’ll do it.” He insisted, cutting off Gu Yuanyuan’s chance to intervene. “The hospital gown that you were still currently wearing had accumulated many bacteria on it. You can already change it, and dump it into the washing machine after. Just press the button, and it will wash automatically.
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Well, I was rejected by my own son.
She looked down at herself to check her clothing. Yeah, she should really change it, take a good bath by the way, and become energetic again.
“Then, you should be careful, and don’t let yourself get cut.” Gu Yuanyuan urged while holding the clothes in her hands, and starting to walk her way to the bathroom.
The bathroom was so spacious that a shower curtain was set in the middle between it for the partition. This area should be the shower room. Gu Yuanyuan, who was not in a hurry to take a bath, washed first her face in the washstand.
Glancing at the delicate little face reflected in the mirror, Gu Yuanyuan nodded her head in satisfaction. As a woman, the love for beauty was only natural. Looking at one’s beautiful self, increased one’s good mood. Being beautiful would also help someone avoid being so self-conscious.
After hanging up her clothes, she quickly opened the shower curtain—
To her surprise, an unexpected scene unfolded right before her. Behind the shower curtain, there was a man lying inside the bathtub! Wearing big headphones on his ears, the man was sleeping with his eyes closed while his long legs were already outside the bathtub, which clearly did not fit inside.
Gu Yuanyuan’s heart almost leaped out from being shocked.
If you took a closer look at his face, isn’t that her third son Lin Shaosi!
Gu Yuanyuan abruptly exclaimed in alarm and was too stunned to turn back around. The next second, however, the man in the bathtub suddenly opened his pair of eyes. And followed by a splash of water, his whole person sprung out from the bathtub.
At the moment, there was a cold glint of light flashed in front of her eyes. Unknowingly, she felt something like a cold metal on her neck. Upon moving her eyes down, she saw a cold knife struck at her neck very closely.
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
“Who are you?” Lin Shaosi fiercely asked while his body was securedly wrapped with the shower curtain. “Who sent you to peek?”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…???”
