My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 166
The dishes delivered by Qin Yue and Wen Rou were all prepared by hotel chefs. They looked delicious and were very appetizing.
Compared to the three dishes that Lu Lixing cooked, the appearance of the steamed Napoleon wrasse was fine in its color, but when tasting it, the fish meat had lost its freshness from being overcooked. Together with the strong taste of the vinegar, the wrasse fish irrefutably lost its value. The shrimp with sweetcorn dish appeared to be black on one end and burnt on the other, tasting salty and sweet at the same time. And the bowl of blackened vegetables already made people lose their appetite just by looking at it.
Out of good intentions, Ji Qingqing placed the dishes delivered by Qin Yue in front of Lu Lixing. “Mr. Lu, you worked hard today.”
Lu Lixing’s brows knitted and he looked over at her gloomily.
With only one look, Ji Qingqing understood his mood and changed her words. “Hubby, you worked hard today.”
—— “Life point +1. Current life points are worth 1 hour.”
Lu Lixing lowered his eyelids slightly and brought his upper body closer to Ji Qingqing and said in a low voice, “This is my first time cooking. Should you do something to show your gratitude?”
Ji Qingqing moved backward, widening the small gap between her and Lu Lixing.
Lu Lixing pulled the bowl of shrimp with sweetcorn that was previously pushed away by Ji Qingqing back.
“For this bowl of shrimp with sweetcorn, I spent 30 minutes to get the corn ready and 20 minutes preparing the shrimp. The shrimp cut me twice, and I got splashed by the oil four times.”
Looking at his almost recovered hands, Ji Qingqing asked, “Do you need to go to the hospital?”
“… Let me finish my words.”
He brought the Napoleon wrasse over.
“I washed this Napoleon wrasse for ten minutes, and the smell of it still lingers on my hands.”
“Using the kitchen soap can get rid of the fish smell.”
“And also this bowl of vegetables. I washed it one by one.”
“Thank you, hubby, for the dishes that you made for me today,” Ji Qingqing said tentatively.
——“Life point +1. Current life points are worth 2 hours.”
Ji Qingqing suddenly understood.
She wondered how Lu Lixing was able to manage a company by expecting certain behaviors, yet beating around the bush at the same time.
“Hubby, I’m really grateful for the food that you made for me today. So thank you.” She inhaled deeply. “Hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby!”
—— “Life point +11. Current life points are worth 14 hours.”
“Is that enough?”
“Hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby, hubby…” Observing his joyful gaze, she chuckled. “Is it enough now?”
—— “Life point +9. Current life points are worth 23 hours.”
Ji Qingqing brows knitted. “Then what do you want?”
Lu Lixing’s eyes fixed on the three dishes on the table. “Eat half of the dishes that I cooked.”
How cruel is he? She already tasted them, and he wanted her to finish half of it? Does he want her to die?
Ji Qingqing quickly shook her head in refusal.
Nope, she won’t eat even if she got beaten to death.
She almost got poisoned after taking one bite. She would probably go to heaven if she ate half.
“I worked so hard to prepare these dishes for you, but you…”
“Hold it!” Before Lu Lixing could start his lengthy speech to morally kidnap her, she interrupted. “Mr. Lu, I’m very grateful and pleased for all the time and effort you put into these dishes, but that is another matter altogether. You’re the one who first asked me what I wanted to eat and that’s what I answered. Also, when I first heard that the hotel’s chef was on a leave, I was going to order delivery, but you stopped me.”
“I’ve tasted your dishes, but for the sake of our safety, let’s just eat the food Brother Qin delivered.”
Lu Lixing sighed, “You’re really not going to eat?”
“No.” Ji Qingqing shook her head strongly.
