Chapter 81: We’re Just Friends (1)
Chen Xiuqi sat by Su Yaya’s side and there was no expression on his face. He faintly glanced at Su Yaya and picked up the cup of tea, sipping it.
Su Yaya felt the back of her hair standing up. She harshly scolded Wang Wenhao in her heart. He was so annoying. He clearly knew her relationship with Chen Xiuqi. Yet, he purposefully made their relationship sound ambiguous. Did he want to harm her?
“When do I not like to eat fish? I always liked to eat fish.” Su Yaya ruthless retorted and placed a piece of fish in her bowl. She started to eat it and used her actions to demonstrate how much she liked to eat fish.
Seeing that she finished a piece of fish and was about to grab another one with his chopsticks, Wang Wenhao faintly smiled. “Maybe I remembered wrong.”
Su Yaya paused her action and pursed her lips. Whatever. She was too lazy to talk about the nonsense with him. She grabbed another piece of spicy fish and slowly tasted it.
Chen Xiuqi saw the entire process and there was no expressions on his handsome face. He placed the teacup down and grabbed a piece of fish with his chopsticks as well. He carefully got rid of the fish bones and placed the fish in Su Yaya’s bowl. He said considerately and in a gentle voice, “If you like fish, eat some more.”
Su Yaya hurriedly lifted her head and her eyes sparkled as she looked at Chen Xiuqi. Her eyes were sparkling like diamonds and her voice was sweet like honey. “Thank you.”
Chen Xiuqi’s face softened a bit and he faintly smiled. “What else do you want to eat? I’ll get it for you.”
Su Yaya looked at him. Despite the subtle expression, she realized that he did this purposefully in front of Wang Wenhao. She didn’t overthink and decided to keep this act up. She sweetly smile and said, “I want that fish ball.”
“Ok.” Chen Xiuqi looked at her in a pampering tone. He picked up a spoon and scooped two fish balls. He gently asked, “More?”
Su Yaya nodded. “More. Give me two more.”
Chen Xiuqi softly laughed and the smile on his face deepened. It felt like he was helpless with her actions but he enjoyed pampering her. He picked up the spoon and scooped two more fish balls.
Su Yaya ate a fish ball and complimented the taste. The quality of the meat was smooth and tasty. It was exquisite and full of juice. Very yummy.
“It’s really yummy.” Su Yaya smiled while eating this. She revealed two sweet and cute dimples, asking Chen Xiuqi, “Do you want to try it? It’s really yummy.”
Chen Xiuqi glanced at Wang Wenhao, not batting his eyelids. He curled his lips into a smile and said, “ok.”
Su Yaya scooped a fish ball in her bowl to Chen Xiuqi’s mouth. She grinned at him. The two were good actors. Chen Xiuqi opened his mouth and ate the fish ball. The two flawlessly cooperated with each other.
Xiao You who was across was envious and she was slightly jealous. Su Yaya was really lucky to have someone like President Chen pampering her!
In the past, her friends in the group chat would gossip, saying that there was no way Su Yaya was connected to Chen Xiuqi. How could he be interested in Su Yaya? She was just an online celebrity who came from about the same status as them. Before today, she believed this too. Until she saw Su Yaya and Chen Xiuqi standing together, like an ideal and a well-matched couple, she believed that their relationship was real now.
Then she became jealous and believed that just because they were together, it didn’t prove anything. It was like her and Wang Wenhao. They were just playing along. Maybe it was the same for Su Yaya and Chen Xiuqi. Everyone could tell that Su Yaya had been trying to please Chen Xiuqi. It was very likely that her thoughts were true. She was persistent with this idea too, until Chen Xiuqi placed a fish ball in Su Yaya’s bowl and she fed him a fish ball. The two were incredibly intimate with each other and they were each other’s worlds. Their eyes were full of love, not acting. They were really affectionate and sweet with each other.
Wang Wenhao’s red phoenix eyes darkened. He picked up the wine glass on the table and gulped down a mouthful.
After they finished, Wang Wenhao took Xiao You along with him and said goodbye to Chen Xiuqi and Su Yaya. The two quickly left.
Su Yaya followed Chen Xiuqi to their lodging, a renovated luxurious penthouse.
“I’ll go shower now.” After fishing in the morning and playing golf with Chen Xiuqi for a while, Su Yaya had sweated a lot. Her clothes stuck to her body and she was uncomfortable. She opened her suitcase and took out some clothes to change into after showering.
Chen Xiuqi looked at her and his eyes darkened. His adam’s apple bobbed as he suggested, “Let’s go together.”
Chen Xiuqi didn’t even give Su Yaya a chance to say no. He held her waist and took her into the bathroom without another word.
The warm water splashed down from the sprinkler, wetting Su Yaya’s hair and face, and then her whole body. Her wet dress stuck to her body. After Chen Xiuqi tugged on it several times, her clothes were off of her.
