My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 165
For Qin Yue and Wen Rou, this did not seem like a good occasion.
Ji Qingqing reached out her hand to take the thermos from Qin Yue and opened it. Inside contained stewed chicken soup, steamed fish, reddish gleaming shrimps and also some leafy greens for the side dish. The food looked delicious and could make one salivate.
The food tempted the foodie in her. “These are all what I like to eat. Brother Qin, thank you.”
Lu Lixing’s face slowly darkened.
“Both of you, come sit and eat. There so much, I definitely can’t finish it all. You’re in luck today, these are the dishes prepared by Mr. Lu. I’ll go get a pair of chopsticks for the two of you.” Ji Qingqing stood up and headed towards the kitchen
Qin Yue looked at the three dishes on the dining table, he did not feel blessed to receive that ‘luck’ at all.
Ji Qingqing emerged from the kitchen and passed the bowls and chopsticks to Qin Yue and Wen Rou. “Help yourselves to the food.”
Qin Yue and Wen Rou looked at the three dishes on the table and turned their gazes to the plate of Shrimp with Sweet corn which could be considered barely passable. Both of them picked up a shrimp each and chewed it. Afterwards, they stopped chewing at the same time and eyed each other. They could see the despair in each other’s eyes
Not daring to take another bite, their throats moved and the two of them swallowed down the whole shrimp.
Lu Lixing stared at the two of them. His eyes slightly darkened, revealing a sharp glint. “Does it taste good?”
“It’s very delicious! President Lu, your cooking skills are superb!”
Ji Qingqing smiled, “If it’s good, eat as much as you like.”
The two of them placed their chopsticks down and thought at the same time. Just what did they eat?
Could it still be considered as shrimp?
For such delicacy to turn into this kind of taste, just how did he do it?
“We’re done eating.”
“Yup yup, Sister Qingqing we are done eating.”
Ji Qingqing’s brows knitted. “But both of you only ate a piece of shrimp.”
“Yup, we’re full, very full!”
The two of them stood up.
For now, the best option was to retreat. If they stayed longer and ate a couple more bites, they would have probably gone to ‘heaven’?
“Qingqing, If there’s nothing else we won’t be disturbing your meal with President Lu. We still have something on so we’ll be heading off first.”
“Yup, We’ll be going first. President Lu, Sister Qingqing, bye~”
Upon seeing Lu Lixing nod, the two fled off hurriedly.
Those dishes could really kill someone.
Luckily they were just there to deliver the dishes. If not, then someone would have ended up dead tomorrow.
Ji Qingqing sat back at the dining table. She hesitantly used the chopsticks to pick a piece of shrimp and placed it into her mouth. As she chewed, she finally understood where that horrified expression on Qin Yue and Wen Rou’s face came from. She glanced at Lu Lixing and forced a smile before swallowing the shrimp as a whole.
Lu Lixing watched Ji Qingqing’s expression change, he could guess how it tasted like.
“It tastes bad?”
Ji Qingqing reluctantly praised him. “To be honest, for a first timer to make it like that, it’s already pretty good.”
Lu Lixing picked up a piece of shrimp. He took a single bite and stopped, neither swallowing or spitting. Eventually, he expressionlessly swallowed the whole shrimp down.
Ji Qingqing picked up a slice of the Napoleon Wrasse. “You added vinegar?”
“Vinegar?” Lu Lixing thought about the dark seasoning he added earlier. He didn’t take note of what it was. Now, he felt unsure of himself, “I think what I added should have been light sauce?”
Ji Qingqing really did not want to touch that plate of vegetables. But, she had to give Lu Lixing some face. Summoning her courage, she bit into the vegetables. Then she silently pushed the dishes Qin Yue delivered earlier in front of Lu Lixing. “All these should taste pretty good, let’s eat them for the afternoon.”
Even if she is beaten to death she will never eat Lu Lixing’s dark cooking!
——“Death warning, please finish 50% of all the dishes to complete the mission’s requirement.”
Lu Lixing stared dangerously at Ji Qingqing.
——“Anyone can eat it!”
