Chapter 44: Really a Treasure
Chen Xiuqi listened as An Yuting brought up past events and he was a bit annoyed for some reason. His face became gloomy for a second.
An Yuting observed his expression and she could tell he was unhappy. She decided to add on and act cute, “Brother Xiuqi, so yes or no? Just give me the second female lead please! I’ll call my sister tonight and tell her about this.”
Nothing sounded wrong but once someone listened to it carefully, it didn’t seem right. If he agreed, everything would be good. But what if he didn’t agree? She said that she would tell her sister about this. Didn’t that mean that she will threaten to tell her sister?
How would Chen Xiuqi allow himself to be threatened? Even if he liked An Yutong a lot, he wouldn’t allow An Yuting to threaten him.
He stared indifferently at her and said, “I already chose someone for the role and the contract is signed. If you want other roles, I can arrange it for you but not this one.”
An Yuting wanted to fight for it but Chen Xiuqi already stood up and showed her to the door. “I have other matters to attend to. I’ll have Assistant Chen bring you down.”
As he said this, he walked out and didn’t even spare her another look.
She sat there, stunned on her seat. It took a while before she finally reacted. Brother Xiuqi won’t even give her sister face. She liked the second female lead role so such and she already made it clear. Yet, he won’t even agree. She was sad and upset.
She suddenly thought of Su Yaya who brought food for Chen Xiuqi. That cheap woman looked similar to her sister. It must be her. She must’ve charmed Brother Xiuqi. That cheap woman. She must tell her sister about this. She won’t let her go!
Chen Xiuqi walked to the office door and recalled what An Yuting had said to him in the parlor. He knitted his eyebrows and tugged his tie. He placed his hand on the door and pushed it open.
Su Yaya was scrolling through Weibo when she heard movement by the door. She placed her phone down and looked up. She revealed a sweet smile and her voice was pleasant to the ears. “Hubby, you’re back!”
Chen Xiuqi stared at her smile and her two cute dimples on her cheeks. He strangely felt the irritated feeling disappeared and his heart softened a bit.
“Hubby, you must be hungry. Come over and eat. I didn’t secretly eat anything.” Su Yaya smiled as she greeted him. She opened the lunchbox and placed the dishes and chopsticks on the table.
Chen Xiuqi watched her and he suddenly thought of how he teased her and told her not to eat without him. He smiled and said, “You really listened to me.”
Su Yaya raised her head and looked innocently at her. “Of course. You’re my hubby!”
This pleased Chen Xiuqi successfully. He couldn’t help but walk up to her. He sat next to Su Yaya in a pleasant mood. He reached over to pat her head. “You’re really a treasure.”
Su Yaya slightly smiled and took it as a compliment.
“Time to eat.” Su Yaya delivered the bowl and chopsticks to him.
He took it and said, “Let’s eat together.”
“Ok.” Su Yaya smiled sweetly and followed his actions.
The food was very tasty and the pickled vegetables with sliced meat soup looked really appetizing. The cucumber with scrambled eggs was fresh and delicious . The two enjoyed their meal. Chen Xiuqi felt that with her by his side, he was very happy while eating.
Sigh. He ate too much again. His six packs will be gone soon! Chen Xiuqi was sad for some reason.
After they finished, Su Yaya packed everything up. Then, she took out a dessert. Seeing Chen Xiuqi’s complicated gaze on her, she blinked her eyes and said, “Why are you looking at me like that?”
Chen Xiuqi sighed and he wanted to scold her. “You’re an artiste. Aren’t you afraid of being fat from eating so much desserts?”
Su Yaya heard this and laughed. She scooped a bit of the mango pudding in her mouth, wanting to prove something. She said in satisfaction, “My body can’t get fat!”
She said the truth. She enjoyed eating and sleeping every day. She exercised occasionally but when she went to weigh herself on the scale, she ended up losing two pounds. When she saw the number on the scale, she was stunned and thought that it was broken. She went to another place to weigh herself and reality proved that she became skinnier.
That was when she realized that she would never be fat from eating. Who doesn’t want a body like this? She could eat all the delicious food she desired and didn’t need to be afraid of being fat. After she found this out, she was ecstatic and ate everything she wanted to.
Once Chen Xiuqi heard this, he deeply sighed. He seemed to have gotten a bit fatter after eating. Nevermind. He’ll have to arrange to go to the gym sometimes!
While Chen Xiuqi decided to exercise in the gym, Su Yaya came over and asked him if he wanted to eat a mango pudding that she brought over and hasn’t opened yet. “Do you want?”
Chen Xiuqi looked at her then at the mango pudding in her hand. He originally wanted to refuse but he couldn’t control himself and took it. After all, he had already eaten too much. A pudding wouldn’t do him too much harm. Anyway, he could just run on the treadmill for two hours.
After he ate the pudding, he rested for a while before going back to work.
Su Yaya sat by the side and scrolled through Weibo. She received Zhou Peiyun’s call. “Come to the company.”
“What’s the matter?” She seemed to be anxious.
“Something good happened.” Zhou Peiyun said.
