Chapter 145: Sharing a bowl of porridge and whatnot is very loving! (1)
Chen Xiuqi felt warm and fuzzy inside, as though his heart was melting.
“Much better,” he nodded.
“Rinse it with water for a few more minutes, it won’t hurt anymore.” Su Yaya pulled his hand under the faucet again and held it there for him.
The thought that she could let go and let him do it himself never crossed her mind. Like a responsible parent caring for a child who had accidentally injured himself, she carefully handled his injury with a serious expression on her face.
She lowered her head and focused her gentle gaze on his finger, showing only her beautiful side profile. Long and thick eyelashes framed her eyes while a pair of kissable red lips rested below her cute button nose.
As Chen Xiuqi stared unblinkingly at her face, he realized that it was his first time he looked at her so carefully. All of a sudden, he felt that every single one of her features was perfectly in line with his visual ideals.
His Adam’s apple bobbed slightly as his breathing became heavier. Lowering his head, he snuck a kiss on her cheek.
Su Yaya looked up and saw a little smile on his face.
“Stop playing around!” she huffed.
He had been causing trouble for her since morning! First, he disclosed their relationship to the public. Then, he tried to make congee and burned it. After that, he even burned his own fingers! The day wasn’t even half over yet, so who knows what else would happen later?
Chen Xiuqi smiled again and said obediently, “Okay, I’ll listen to you.”
She cast him a look. Why was he acting so obedient all of a sudden? That wasn’t like him at all!
“Being able to listen to my wife is a blessing.”
Fine, it was his win!
His fingers stopped hurting after a few minutes, so he pulled his hand away from the faucet.
Su Yaya walked to the stove and looked at the porridge in the pot. Although it was a little burnt, it wasn’t too bad. She opened the cupboard, took out a small bowl and used a spatula to remove the burnt parts.
When Chen Xiuqi walked over and saw the burned porridge in the pot, he frowned slightly and said, “Don’t eat it, it’s too burnt.”
Su Yaya turned her head and smiled. “It’s okay, the parts that aren’t burnt can be eaten.”
“Even then, the porridge wouldn’t taste good. How can it still be eaten? Let’s throw it away!” Chen Xiuqi said as he reached for the pot.
Su Yaya quickly stopped him. She smiled, revealing two cute dimples on her cheeks and coaxed softly, “Hubby, this is the first time you cooked porridge for me! How can I throw it away? Though the porridge is a bit mushy, I think it’s perfectly fine.”
Her soft voice entered his ears while her sweet smile blossomed before his eyes. How could his Yaya be so clever and sensible? His heart was about to melt.
Chen Xiuqi’s throat bobbed up and down before he responded, “I’ll make it better for you next time.”
Su Yaya shook her head and smiled. “This is the first bowl of porridge you’ve made for me, it’s the most meaningful. I only want this one.”
Chen Xiuqi looked at her and reluctantly gave in. How could he not? “Let’s eat together,” he suggested dotingly.
The porridge was cooked by him, the mistake was made by him too. He couldn’t let her finish all of it alone.
“Okay!” Su Yaya agreed sweetly. Sharing half of it with him was better than having her finish it all on her own.
With one hand holding hers and the other holding a bowl of porridge, he guided her into the kitchen. “Come, let’s eat.”
