Xuxu answered with an‘Ok’and she walked down the stairs leisurely.
When she entered the dining room, she gasped in astonishment and it took her a while to return to her senses.
“Missy, Third Young Master cooked an array of delicious dishes.” Aunt Zhang knew that Xuxu was shocked that Yan Rusheng could cook and purposely added, “I’ve seen Third Young Master grew up and yet I wasn’t even aware that he can cook.”
Yan Rusheng walked out of the kitchen carrying a bowl of soup in his hands and then he saw Xuxu. With a look of satisfaction, he said, “We can eat in now.”
He walked over to the dining table and placed the bowl of soup down with care.
After that, he removed the apron, put it aside and sat down.
“When did you learn how to cook?” Xuxu sat down opposite to Yan Rusheng and there was a look of doubt on her face as she looked at the dishes on the table.
Yan Rusheng was even smugger. “There’s nothing that I cannot handle.”
It all depended on whether he wanted to do it or not.
Xuxu rolled her eyes in secret.“Just look at how smug he was right now.”
She picked up a mouthful of shredded potatoes and shoved them into her mouth.
The tasted was unexpectedly delicious.
She felt a little jealous. Why was he always so capable of handling every matter so well?
And so effortlessly too.
Xuxu savored every dish, and each tasted just the way it should be.
Both of them lowered their heads and ate. The atmosphere was quiet as usual but no longer chilly.
“Wen Xuxu, do you have any comments about my dishes?” Yan Rusheng suddenly lifted his head and asked Xuxu.
He was unhappy that she ate on without offering any words of compliments.
This was his first time cooking and had painstakingly prepared so many dishes.
Xuxu raised her head and feigned ignorance. “What do you want me to say?”
Must she show him a thumbs up and praise him with utmost admiration that his dishes were delicious? Must she praise him that he was the most capable and outstanding?
Could he stop being so arrogant?
“Dumb woman. She had the audacity to feign ignorance!”
Yan Rusheng pointed at the dishes on the table and instructed Xuxu in an unquestionable tone, “Look carefully. From tonight onwards, there must be at least the same number of dishes during every meal. On weekends, more dishes must be added too.”
The dinner that she had prepared these two days comprised of only simple fare, just to go through the motion.
Xuxu knitted her eyebrows and appeared gloomy. “Where do I find the time? I have so many things to do in the day and even have to work overtime at night.”
Yan Rusheng responded, “Handling household chores is a woman’s duty.”
Xuxu rebutted him casually, “Doting on your wife is also a man’s duty.”
After saying that, she realized that she had blurted it out without thinking much.
She lowered her head and chided herself. One must love his wife before he could dote on her.
He didn’t love her and found joy in tormenting her instead. He just wanted to gather pieces of evidence about her.
Instead, just a call from Fang Jiayin resolved the matter about the spokesperson delaying the company’s event planning and progress. His attitude towards both ladies was different.
After some deliberation, she added, “If you find my dishes not up to your liking, you can consider employing two persons.”
“If there are too many people in the house, it will invite unnecessary gossips.” Yan Rusheng knitted his eyebrows. “Do you want the whole world to know that both of us can’t get along with each other?”
He was right too, but it didn’t matter to her if many people knew about this.
He was the one who’s trying hard to build the affection between them, even if it was just an illusion.
Slam. Xuxu put down her chopsticks and looked at Yan Rusheng. Her eyes were covered with a layer of gloom. “If something is bothering you, can’t you just speak your mind?”
