Chapter 116: Thought He didn’t know what She was thinking? (1)
When Chen Xiuqi who was sitting opposite her noticed the strange look in her eyes, he suddenly raised his head and saw her stiff face. He frowned slightly and said, “What’s wrong? Why are you looking at me like that?”
Su Yaya’s heart jumped. She immediately came back to her senses and put on a smile, saying, “I just wanted to ask, what are we having for lunch today?”
Chen Xiuqi put down the documents in his hands and walked over to hold her with both hands. He lowered his head and nibbled on her lips before answering seductively, “What do you say?”
Su Yaya pouted her red lips and put her arms around him. She looked up at him and asked, “What about tomato meatball soup, stir-fried vegetables, and shredded chili beef?”
Chen Xiuqi was fine with the first two dishes, but the last one would be a bit difficult for him. “Isn’t shredded chili beef too spicy?”
Su Yaya grinned. “I’ll eat it myself.”
Chen Xiuqi pinched her cheeks and said with a sullen expression, “Then what about me?”
Su Yaya answered him seriously, “You can eat the others.”
Chen Xiuqi made a hum and said, “You know what I mean.”
She’ll finish her chili beef then she’ll come and kiss him. Did she think that he didn’t know what she was thinking?
Su Yaya pursed her lips and said pitifully, “But I want to eat it!”
“Not allowed!” Chen Xiuqi gave her a look of disapproval
Su Yaya leaned down towards him and said, “Okay, okay, anything you say.”
Chen Xiuqi looked at her pitiful appearance and felt a little better. He coaxed her, “You can eat whatever you like the day after tomorrow when I’m on my business trip. When that time comes I won’t say anything about it.”
Su Yaya said, “You’re going on a business trip again?”
“I’m heading to S City for a bit,” Chen Xiuqi said.
“How many days?” The longer the better, she hoped. Then she wouldn’t have to take care of him anymore. She’ll have peace and freedom.
Chen Xiuqi didn’t know what she was thinking and thought that she couldn’t bear to see him go. He said, “Maybe three to five days. But I’ll be back as soon as possible after my work is over.”
Su Yaya quickly said, “No, you don’t have to…”
When she met Chen Xiuqi’s inspecting gaze, Su Yaya quickly changed her tone. “I mean, you don’t have to be in such a hurry. Work is important, it’s not too late to come back after everything is settled.”
After that, she looked at Chen Xiuqi’s face. His expression was the same as usual, which meant he didn’t notice anything. Su Yaya secretly breathed a sigh of relief. She nearly let her true feelings slip again.
She quickly said, “I’ll go cook now.”
“Go on.” Chen Xiuqi let her go. While hurrying to the kitchen, she heard Chen Xiuqi’s warning voice from behind saying, “Don’t make shredded chili beef.”
“Okay, got it,” Su Yaya answered him.
In the end, Su Yaya made tomato meatball soup, shiitake mushrooms with pork slices, and stir-fried vegetables. They were all common home dishes but they were delicious. Chen Xiuqi had a very satisfying meal.
After eating, it was rare for Chen Xiuqi, but he actually took the initiative to help clean up the dishes and put them into the dishwasher in the kitchen.
Taking advantage of her free time, Su Yaya sat on the sofa and pulled out her phone to play games. When Chen Xiuqi came out after settling the dishes, he went over to her and sat down, waiting for her to finish her game before stretching his arm over and pulling her in, saying, “Let’s take a trip over to second aunt’s place.”
When she heard this, Su Yaya blinked. After transmigrating over for so long, she still had yet to see any of Chen Xiuqi’s family members so he didn’t know what kind of person she was. Of course, the original host of her body had met them before, but that was only when she and Chen Xiuqi agreed to marry, and he brought her back home to see his grandfather that one time.
Su Yaya said, “What are we going there for?”
