21. I’m Going to Have Dinner Here
“How could Cheng Feixue become my wife if she was as impatient as you? Trust me. Her tolerance is way beyond your imagination. As my lawful wife, even if she learnt our relationship, she would definitely urge you to become my mistress. You are free to justify my words by calling her right now.”
“Sheer nonsense! Xue has always held a high expectation of love since her childhood. She would never compromise.” Qi Luoge said excitedly.
“If you don’t believe me, let me prove it to you.”
Qiao Yushi quickly clicked open his contact list and found a number named “beloved wife”, before he dialed the number.
“Don’t call her! No!” Qi Luoge panicked and tried to stop him. But it was too late.
Cheng Feixue’s soft voice had already came, “Darling!”
“Xue, I have…” a mistress.
Qiao Yushi looked at Qi Luoge, who was fiercely shaking her head. Her face was full of pleading. She was obviously begging him to hang up and keep their relationship as a secret.
With a pitiful look on her face, she held his arm with trembling hands and tears welling up in her eyes.
“What? Are you coming back for dinner tonight?” Cheng Feixue asked.
“I…” Qi closed her eyes in despair when Qiao Yushi uttered the first word. Tears started trickling down. From today, she would be in her good friend’s list of haters. She was screwed.
In fact, Qiao Yushi had no intention to confess to Xue at the moment. He was just trying to scare Qi Luoge. Seeing that she was really afraid, he curled his lips and continued,
“Actually I wanted to tell you that I have an appointment tonight. I’m going to have dinner at a friend’s house. Later, babe!” He said softly.
“All right. Bye, sweetie!” Cheng Feixue said sweetly and ended the conversation.
Qi Luoge had a sigh of relief and moved her hand away from his arm before she lay down on the bed powerlessly as if she had just finished a fierce fight.
“Remember, you owe me a favor. Don’t try to act against my will, or I’ll be further justified to put you under my control.” Qiao Yushi threw his phone aside and leaned over to her.
“Little one, I’ll always have control over you, which you can never overthrow.” He bent down and pinched her chin, forcing her to look into his eyes and listen.
“Don’t be too confident. God will punish you sooner or later. Karma’s a bitch!” Qi Luoge said coldly while raising her head to look at him. No respect nor any signs of love or tenderness could be found in her bright eyes.
A cold gleam flashed across Qiao Yushi’s eyes, but the corners of his mouth were curved up unconsciously.
“Babe, before that, let’s have some good time in bed…”
Qi Luoge closed her eyes. Her body became stiff and she had no intention to resist his offer at all. She was just quietly enduring.
Having learnt Qi’s bold act of cursing him, Qiao Yushi was irritated and wanted to exercise extreme torment on Qi Luoge.
Qi Luoge kept her eyes closed without even frowning. She knew that he was punishing her for no reason at all. In fact, Qiao Yushi should be the one to be punished.
God was so unfair that he allowed such a beast to exist in this world.
She assumed that she was being raped and forced to act like a lifeless statue in front of a stranger.
“Do you still dare to provoke me?” He asked her coldly and pressed her against the floor.
“You are free to exercise all your extreme torment on me. I’ll never frown, or I’ll be all out!” Looking at him with hatred, she responded weakly.
“Don’t regret it!”
He didn’t ask for her surrender, because she had an arrogant and scornful look on her face.
“Is it over? To my disappointment, I thought you could do better.” Even though the pain was so long and she was forced to endure huge torment in every single second, she still wanted to mock him.
“You…So my babe has not yet had enough enjoyment. It doesn’t matter. I’ll take a break before I bring you greater satisfaction.”
He was nearly irritated by her words. What a cunning woman!
“Why not now?”
“You don’t believe me? You are underestimating me!”
Qi Luoge was a bit surprised when finding he was ready to start all over again. She was really scared and unconsciously frowned.
But he was just looking at her quietly, without further action.
“Are you afraid? Let’s see if you dare to boast next time.”
Her little face was full of panic, and her brows were knitted tightly. When seeing this, Qiao Yushi felt his heart skip a beat.
After the cold words, he released her and went to take a bath.
Qi Luoge sat up with difficulty and dressed herself before she went to lay on the bed.
She was really exhausted, and had no idea when this fight would come to an end.
When Qiao Yushi came back from the bathroom, he saw her curl up on the floor, looking as lonely and helpless as a stray dog.
‘She is just acting. Qiao Yushi, she is just trying to gain your sympathy.’
‘You were told the farmer-and-wolf story many times when you were young. You cannot indulge yourself to become the foolish farmer at the moment.’ Qiao Yushi thought to himself.
“Sister Li said you had approved her temporary leave. I have also approved it. But you were the one who made the decision first. So you should be responsible for cooking during her leave. Get up and stop pretending.”
He sat on the bed and said to her. Actually he had had dinner. He said so because he heard her stomach rumble when they were making love. So he guessed she had not yet had any food.
Qi Luoge ignored him and still pretended to be sleeping. Cooking for him? She used to cook delicious food for him every day when she wanted to strengthen their relationship.
He was not good at praising the others. But he would always show his approval by eating up all the food she cooked every time.
She would become happy whenever she found how much he was fond of her cooking style.
But happy days had gone. She would never cook for him again.
“I’m talking to you. Don’t be so rude. Answer me!” He stretched out a finger and pinched her.
“I’m tired. If you have not yet had dinner, you are free to dine out.” she said unhappily.
“I’m going to have dinner here today!” He turned her over, because he was not used to talking to her back.
“Do as you wish!”
“What do you have here?”
“Whatever you want, I have no strength to cook.”
“Then cook tonight. I’ll ask Jiang Donghai to send some food over.” He decided to compromise when finding that she seemed to be really weak at the moment.
It had been a long time since she stopped cooking for him. In fact, he missed her food very much.
“I’m not going to cook for you. Qiao Yushi, I will never cook for you.”
“How dare you!”
“Yes, you are right! You can’t control my hands no matter how powerful you are. Don’t forget. I have no obligation to cook for you, as listed in the agreement.
“Good! Now you’re talking about the agreement. Before you resist again in the future, you’d better get ready for the consequences!”
Qiao Yushi was so angry that he slammed the door and left immediately after he finished his words.
After he left, Qi luoge felt extremely hungry. She tried to get up and cook something. But she was really powerless and exhausted at the moment that she couldn’t move anymore.
When she was about to fall asleep, she heard the doorbell ring.
Few people would come here. She stood up and got dressed before she quickly ran to the door.
On the monitor, she saw Jiang Donghai standing at the door, holding a food box.
Qi Luoge didn’t want to meet him. He was as hateful as Qiao Yushi.
But Jiang Donghai seemed eager to meet her. So he kept ringing the doorbell. She had no choice but to open the door.
“Mr. Qiao asked me to deliver food to you. He said you could only finish your job when you are not starving.” Jiang Donghai said coldly. He put the food box on the ground and turned away.
“Take it away, Jiang Donghai. I won’t eat it!”
“The order I received is to hand over the food to you. Eating or not is your business. I don’t care at all.” Jiang Donghai didn’t stop and said coldly.
Qi Luoge could clearly sense Jiang’s hatred towards her.
Jiang might regard her as a mistress and looked down upon her. Otherwise, Jiang had no reason to hate her, since she had never offended him.
Sensing the delicious food fragrance coming from the exquisite food box, Qi Luoge felt even hungrier.
This was the first time Qiao Yushi had sent someone to deliver food. But she could hardly sense any warmth at all. He was going to torment her. Only when she was healthy, was she able to endure greater torment from him.
She had no reason to put herself in a difficult situation. Only after having enough food, could she continue fighting with the monster. Thinking of this, she picked up the food box and walked back to the living room.
The food was from Meditation Restaurant. This were the taste and fragrance she had been longing for.
When she was in peace with him, she occasionally mentioned one day that she liked eating the food from Meditation Restaurant.
The bastard didn’t seem to be good at remembering such trivia. It must be a coincidence.
“Qi Luoge, you should be on guard against any type of sugar-coated bullets. Even if he had carefully memorized your habits, he must be up to something evil.”
She opened the food box, took the food out and put it on the table.
She remembered her very first visit to Meditation Restaurant a few years ago. At that time, she was only a small girl and her parents were not very rich. To satisfy her birthday wish, her parents took her to dine out at her favorite restaurant. After long-term saving and frugality, her parents were finally able to afford the cost of a meal at Meditation Restaurant.
Afterwards, her family became richer and richer. But her favorite was still the food from Meditation Restaurant, because she wanted to keep in mind the kindness of her parents.
She picked up the chopsticks and began to wolf the food down. While eating, she recalled her carefree days when she had been the envy of the world and a spoiled child of her parents. She could no longer restrain her sadness when thinking of this.
Tears fell onto the food. Qiao Yushi, who was hiding in the darkness, stopped smiling and knitted his eyebrows.
She was eating and crying like an angry housewife.
Without wiping her tears away, she continued gulping down the food.
She did tell him that her favorite restaurant was Meditation Restaurant, didn’t she? Why was she so sad at the moment?
What an unfathomable woman! Maybe she was used to acting. She could never stop acting, even when she had no audience.
“Qi Luoge, don’t cry. That bastard is just bullying you. Even if he knows about your sadness, he would be laughing at you secretly. Have a good meal and wait for the day when he receives due punishment!”
She wiped her tears and kept eating.
“You see, she never appreciated your kindness.” Qiao Yushi felt he was foolish, to have treated a hater kindly.
In the future, he would never do such a silly thing. In this way, he would never be misunderstood.
He started to walk to the study room angrily. Qiao Yushi was striding and happened to kick an antique porcelain at the corner of the wall.
That porcelain was hard enough and was not damaged by the kick. But it kept rolling on the ground. So Qiao Yushi’s ankle was sprained.
