Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At two o’clock in the afternoon, Gu Wencheng called and asked, “Have you eaten?”
Meng Nianyao was checking on Meng Haotian’s company on her laptop. She didn’t think about it and answered directly, “1 haven’t eaten yet.” his voice turned cold. “What time is it? Why aren’t you eating now? Do you still want to go to the hospital?”
Meng Nianyao knew that Gu Wencheng was doing this for her own good, but she was very annoyed now, so she snapped, “It’s none of your business about me being hospitalized.” After saying that, she hung up the phone.
Gu Wencheng was speechless. He looked at the phone that had been hung up, face dark and his brows furrowed.
Ping Yang was waiting for Gu Wencheng to sign the document when she overheard his conversation with Meng Nianyao. She stole a glance at his expression and couldn’t help but complain in her heart, “His boss is really a straight man, he doesn’t speak gently at all. “The lady boss seemed to have a bad temper. It was hard to tell usually…
“Boss, I need your signature on this document,” Ping Yang said after a while.
After Gu Wencheng signed it, Ping Yang took it and was about to leave. However, when she reached the door, she couldn’t help but ask, “Boss, are you…Do you nothave much experience in dating?”
Gu Wencheng sat in his office chair and looked at him coldly. Ping Yang regretted talking too much. She endured the huge pressure and said, “Boss… Don’t be angry, let me finish, okay? Women need to be taken care of. Although the lady boss looks very independent and strong, she also has a fragile place in her heart. Sometimes, you can’t be too direct with a woman. You have to be tactful and gentle…” She explained her point of view in a few words and then lowered her head. “Boss, I’m just talking nonsense. If you think I’m talking too much, don’t be angry. Just treat it as me farting.”
With that, she opened the door and left.
Gu Wencheng was speechless. He was silent for a while before calling Ping Yang to order lunch for Meng Nianyao.
When Meng Nianyao heard the bell ring, she opened the door and realized that it was Ping Yang.
“Good afternoon, Lady Boss. Boss asked me to bring you lunch!”
Meng Nianyao was speechless.
“You bought too much,” Meng Nianyao said, speechless at the sight of the high-end restaurant’s lunch boxes piled up on the dining table.
“1 didn’t know what you liked to eat, so I bought more.” Ping Yang shook her head.
Meng Nianyao was speechless. She was really not hungry. After eating a few mouthfuls, she realized that the food that Ping Yang had sent over seemed untouched. She thought about it and felt that it was enough for dinner, so she put it away with plastic wrap.
After packing up, Meng Nianyao sent Gu Wencheng a message. “Thank you for lunch. Also, I’m sorry for my attitude this afternoon.”
After sending the message, Meng Nianyao continued to browse the computer.
At five o’clock in the afternoon, Gu Wencheng came back from work. Meng Nianyao heard the sound of the door opening and looked over. She looked at the time on the computer and asked, “Are you hungry?” 1’11 go cook.”
Gu Wencheng nodded. The unhappiness in the afternoon seemed to have passed just like that.
Meng Nianyao took the leftovers from the fridge and heated them in the microwave. Then she cooked noodles for two people. When the noodles were done, she called Gu Wencheng to eat.
Gu Wencheng looked at the dishes on the table. Pingyang had ordered food from a famous restaurant. Even though it had been reheated, it still looked delicious. He still asked, “Mrs. Gu, is this what you mean by cooking?” Boiled noodles with water and takeaway dishes?
“Yes, Mr. Gu. Is there a problem?” Meng Nianyao nodded.
Gu Wencheng wanted to tease her, but seeing her serious look, he felt that it was a little funny. He shook his head and said, “Nothing. Let’s eat.”
The two of them ate quietly. Because Meng Nianyao had heated the food, Gu Wencheng went to wash the dishes.
At this moment, the doorbell rang. Meng Nianyao went to open the door. It was a delivery boy. She thought that the pen and paper tools she had bought had arrived, so after signing for it, she sat on the shoe changing stool at the entrance and bent down to open it. Unexpectedly, when the box opened, a realistic doll covered in red paint was in it. Meng Nianyao subconsciously let out a cry and threw the box away.
Gu Wencheng, who was in the kitchen, heard the noise and quickly came out. He frowned when he saw the doll on the floor. He walked over and pulled Meng Nianyao into his arms. “It’s okay. Don’t be afraid..”
