Chapter 144: I’m not Greedy (3)
No one knew. In fact, not even he expected her sweet smile to affect him so much. He had planned a more elaborate scheme, but when he thought about her, he just couldn’t do it. He only hoped that she would continue to smile and be happy, even if it was by Chen Xiuqi’s side. Rather than fight Chen Xiuqi for her, Xu Chaoran decided to silently leave.
Su Yaya felt much better when she woke up. She wasn’t someone who liked to worry and since things had already happened, she had thought up a plan going forward. It was now time to execute it.
She got out of bed and headed downstairs. When she reached the stairs, she was startled by a disarray of clanging sounds. She didn’t know what Chen Xiuqi was doing in the kitchen, so she hurried down.
Once she entered the kitchen, the sight of Chen Xiuqi in a white shirt and rolled-up sleeves, holding a spatula as he stirred something in a pot, greeted her.
He turned his head and smiled at her. “I made some porridge.”
Mother! The overbearing president made porridge for her? This wasn’t written in the original novel! For the second time in one day, she was shocked by him.
Then, she wondered… was the porridge made by President Chen edible? With this doubt in mind, she walked closer and said, “Let me see.”
Chen Xiuqi didn’t have any intentions to hide it from her either. He was very confident about something as easy as porridge.
Su Yaya peered into the pot and fortunately, the porridge looked okay. He didn’t make any beginner mistakes, such as adding too much or too little water or rice. There was even a faint fragrance coming from the pot.
“It looks pretty good!” Su Yaya’s eyes sparkled as she looked at Chen Xiuqi. Although it was nothing impressive, men still liked to be praised from time to time. She understood this very well.
“Doesn’t it?” Chen Xiuqi raised his eyebrows and showed a smug expression. He was rather satisfied with his first attempt at cooking porridge.
“Not bad, not bad! My husband is the best!” Su Yaya smiled and stood on her tiptoes to kiss his cheek.
Unsatisfied with just that, Chen Xiuqi grabbed her waist and initiated a much longer and more passionate kiss…
When he finally let her go, she was panting. He gently kissed her forehead.
Su Yaya laid her head on his broad, comfortable chest.
Then, she noticed a strange smell in the air. Lifting her head, she sniffed and realized it was coming from the stove.
Oh, no! The porridge was burning.
“The porridge, the porridge!” she exclaimed, pointing at the pot.
Chen Xiuqi looked over, his face sunk. He quickly reached for the pot just as Su Yaya warned, “Be caref—”
However, it was too late. A numb sensation spread over Chen Xiuqi’s fingers and he quickly let go of the pot, almost spilling the porridge inside.
“Did you get burned?” Su Yaya hurriedly turned off the stove and grabbed his hand. She carefully examined his fingers and saw a patch of redness on his middle finger and index finger.
“We need to rinse it under some cold water. It’ll soothe the burns,” she said as she turned on the faucet and pulled his hand under the stream of water that came out.
The water enveloped his fingers, immediately soothing the burning sensations.
“Does it feel better?” Su Yaya looked up at him and asked.
Her beautiful eyes were filled with concern as she stared at him. Chen Xiuqi felt warm and fuzzy inside, as though his heart was melting.
“Much better,” he nodded.
The author has something to say…
Su Yaya: I’m not greedy!
Chen Xiuqi: I’m the only one you need!
