Chapter 76 & 77

Chapter 76: It’s okay if I come up.

He reached the door, pulled it open but has not yet gone out, Shi Jinyang’s cool thin voice came from behind, “Don’t mess with me!”

The corner of Shi Luo’s eyes twitched. One leg out of the door was abruptly retracted.

“No, it’s just a joke. Did you really think I was going?” Not admitting that he felt uncomfortable with the words he threw to him, he turned around and went back to the sofa.

Shi Jinyang and Shi Luo were true brothers but their personalities were completely different.

Shi Luo has always been relatively undisciplined, youthful, and a playboy. He also rarely speaks seriously, just behaves as the younger son.

Shi Jinyang’s personality was more like their parents’, reserved, elegantly tall and cold. Although, he sometimes jokes around, he still maintains his own sense of propriety.

Outside the office, Fang Chixia  studied the magazine for the newly launched Rongxi Jewelry next and the whole afternoon passed.

In the evening, in order to avoid running into Luo Yibei, she deliberately went out a few minutes late.

After stepping out of Rongxi building, she didn’t go back immediately but took the card given to her by Shi Jinyang and chose a restaurant near her home to dine.

When she swiped the card, she didn’t ask for the price and handed the card directly.

Out of the restaurant, she spent more than half an hour to ride back to the villa. The light in the house have already been lit.

Luo Yibei has arrived home first.

When he saw her coming in, he asked without expression, “Where did you go today?”

“School.” Fang Chixia changed into her slippers and answered indifferently. Before she went upstairs, at the side of her head, she said, “Right, I already had dinner outside.”

What she meant was that if Luo Yibei still hasn’t eaten, he’ll have to figure it out himself. She has nothing to do with it.

She turned around to continue upstairs but was halted by Luo Yibei’s, “Stay!”

“What’s the matter?” Fang Chixia looked over his head, looked at him and looked at the empty table. Puzzled, she asked, “You haven’t eaten yet?”

This problem was very obvious.

It was impossible for him to enter the kitchen by himself, and it was not the day for the maid to come. And now, not long after he gets off the clock, he’s unlikely to be dining.

“Were you waiting for me to come back?” Fang Chixia looked at him knowingly.

Since the two married, it seems that Luo Yibei has not gone outside to eat alone, the three meals were almost eaten together.

With her, it has become a habit he had developed in a matter of days.
 
“I’ll give you three seconds to get down!” Luo Yibei stood down looking at her. In a cool tone, he added, “Otherwise, I’ll come up. Tomorrow, don’t think of coming out of the room!”

There was a strong air about him and Fang Chixia who was standing on the stairs, clearly should be the imposing one, but she felt dwarfed when they looked at each other.

“Call for takeout. I have to prepare for an exam tonight.” Fang Chixia’s heart trembled, but she didn’t want to be threatened by him. She raised her legs and started upstairs but only two steps after, Luo Yibei’s figure suddenly caught up.

Fang Chixia was startled. The corner of her eyes has caught a sight his cold face. The pace of her footsteps sped up, thumping on the run, “Luo Yibei, don’t do this!”

Luo Yibei has always had his ways of dealing with her and Fang Chixia has suffered a number of losses.

On the stairs, two people chased one after another. The one in front was running out of breath while the other one at the behind remained calm.

In one vigorous effort, Fang Chixia rushed into the bedroom. She just arrived at the door with the emergency lock not yet fastened when Luo Yibei’s body suddenly squeezed in.

 


Chapter 77: Too late for regrets

Fang Chixia was appalled. She raised her arm and tried to push him outside.

However, it was clear that the power gap between them was too large.

Luo Yibei dealt with her easily.

He shove the door open and his heavy eyes landed on her. One arm hooked against her waist and he slammed her against the wall behind her.

His eyes swiveled on her petal-like pink lips and he leaned over. He wanted to claim her lips for a kiss but Fang Chixia shied away and avoided him.

Lifting an arm between them, she tried to bargain with him, “Leave this. I’ll go. I will help you do it now!”

“It’s too late! I’ve just warned you!” Yibei squinted at her white and slender arms and thought they were an eyesore. He swiped them away and his lips moved to kiss her again, but again, Fang Chixia evaded it.

After taking a couple of steps back, she calmed down, looked him straight in the eye and went on to persuade him, “Look, we live together everyday. Whatever you want to do, I can’t hide. It doesn’t matter how you punish me, but whatever it is, there’s no need to go over it with an empty stomach, right?”

There was some truth on her remark.

Yibei stayed silent for a while and was persuaded by her.

“Okay, then let’s go down first.” He turned and went downstairs ahead of her.

Fang Chixia panted and followed him out of the room.

She just said that to get out of trouble. When she reached the stairs, she recalled what she said and regretted it so much she wanted to bite off her tongue.

What good thing has she done?

 Serving him well so it would be more convenient for him to toss her tonight?

Fang Chixia was extremely annoyed, but the words were already said, she could only calculate one step at a time.

Downstairs, she entered the kitchen, opened the fridge and look at the ingredients available, and casually asked, “What do you want to eat?”

Luo Yibei looked at her quietly then the meal he had for lunch this afternoon suddenly flashed in his mind.

After a moment of reflection, he spit out, “French Cuisine.”

“What specifically?” Fang Chixia asked again.

“As you please.” Luo Yibei answered calmly. He stood at the door and did not speak again.

Fang Chixia actually understood his taste. She had also asked him the list of his preferences as soon as they got married.

For all that, thinking of what they might do after returning to the room, Fang Chixia’s rebellious heart didn’t want everything to go his way and decided to serve him all her favorites.

Thus, when the French course was prepared and laid out on the table, it became what Luo Yibei has seen at the restaurant at noon.

Apart from the fact that her presentation was not very good and her skills were poor, even the number of the dishes were all the same.

Luo Yibei looked quietly at each to the dishes on the table in front of him and his eyes grew deeper.

“When I called you at noon, were you busy?” He didn’t directly clarify but asked nonchalantly as if nothing had happened.

Fang Chixia felt it odd for him to suddenly ask this. She looked at him in surprise but a little empty at heart. Her face however remained calm, “At that time, I was with An An. The school has a little matter going on so it was a little busy.”

Luo Yibei didn’t ask more. He lowered his head and held the cutlery toe eat quietly.

Sitting opposite him, Fang Chixia looked at the slowly diminishing food and wondered what she should do after he had finished eating.

  1. FC’s really digging a hole for herself. Almost all of the misunderstandings between them is caused by her. It’s beyond me as to why she’d rather not explain anything to LY. It would be really tiresome if she continues to hide things from him. Thanx for the update! ^_^
