Chapter 27: A hearty candlelight dinner

It was strange that he would be fascinated by her erratic behavior.

As soon as she turned, his vision would always chase after her figure.

Fang Chixia was to her back, busy with herself when he arrived at the kitchen.

This villa was a personal space for Luo Yibei. Generally, he stays back at the Luo Family’s main house and lives with the big family. He rarely comes here.

After getting off work, when he felt like home was far away, he would turn this way occasionally.

If it were a regular day, there would be basically nothing to be dissatisfied about here. Only a maid comes regularly to clean the house and prepares something in the fridge.

Fang Chixia was lucky today. The maid had just arrived yesterday so there were plenty of stocks in the fridge.

She took out a pile of ingredients and prepared to cook a French cuisine.

Since childhood, she was accustomed to being independent so her self-care ability was very strong. This kind of dinner couldn’t beat her.

“When I grow up, I wanna be your bride, be your bride, touch your heart…” She seemed happy humming an English song. It sounded like a nursery rhyme and even the sound has been infected with pleasure.

The content of the lyrics, roughly, was that, when I grow up, I want to be close to you and become your bride.

Humming that on such an occasion as today was very fitting.

Luo Yibei naturally misunderstood.

Standing at the door, quietly looking at her like this, his lips curled derisively.

Become his bride?

The identity that many other women in C city has dreamt of, she got it so easily. She really should sing and celebrate!

“By the way, what do you like and don’t like? Is your taste preference light or strong? Is there anything in particular that is a taboo at ordinary times? Since we will be living together in the future, talk about it!” Fang Chixia looked at him at the corner of her eyes and casually asked.

She and he had only met a couple of times. Apart from the night they first met, it could be said that they were almost strangers to each other.

Although she was not interested in him, after all, to live together for so long, Fang Chixia thought it appropriate to understand each other’s preferences.

“I thought you already knew all of it.” Luo Yibei answered.

“What?” Fang Chixia was startled unsure of what he meant.

Why would she get to know him?

Luo Yibei just coldly smiled.

– One million wasn’t enough. Before asking him to marry her, such a basic homework as knowing his preferences wasn’t even done?

Luo Yibei spoke no more, but stood by the door and watched her work.

Fang Chixia’s movements were neat and the dinner didn’t take much time to prepare.

This made Luo Yibei very satisfied.

He didn’t like dragging things out. It makes him irritable, including people.

Fang Chixia set the table.

She took great care in finding a very stylish hollow white lace table-cloth and placed it on the table. She even specially arranged some candles and petals on the table.

Cascades of rose petals spread along one end of the table, extending straight to the side where the two were sitting.

A lot of candles were also lit, the flickering candle lights made the whole dining room dimly lit.

It was visible that Fang Chixia prepared this meal very attentively.
