Chapter 169: When Can He Eat Spicy Food? (1)
“Someone did come to send food, but it wasn’t Miss Su.” Assistant Lin glanced at the door of the office. Suddenly, he leaned towards Xiao Chun and gave her an expression meaning that he was only telling her this because he saw her. Then, he quickly gossiped, “Our young mistress sent him food that she even prepared herself!”
Although Mr. Gu was the one who gave the order, it wasn’t the main point. Hence, Assistant Lin automatically disregarded it.
Xiao Chun’s expression froze for a split second, unknowingly tightening her fingers around the file she was holding. She said calmly, “So Xu Weilai came to send lunch to Brother Yu.”
Assistant Lin raised his head and looked at the clock hanging on the wall. He said, ” Lunch break is almost over. I need to grab some food quickly. Miss Xiao, please go ahead.”
Xiao Chun smiled. “Go and have your lunch.”
After Assistant Lin left, Xiao Chun didn’t knock and enter the office immediately. Instead, she walked in front of the floor-to-ceiling window and looked into the office. Her gaze landed on the handsome man sitting behind the wide and huge office desk.
She saw Gu Yu pushing the files in front of him away. He took out the lunchbox inside the bag and opened it. One by one, he placed the different layers on the table.
After that, Gu Yu noticed that there was a layer of small red chili covering all the dishes. He didn’t seem surprised. There was even a faint smile at the corner of his lips.
His gaze was just like three years ago, helpless and doting.
He lifted the chopsticks and took a piece of meat covered in chili, placing it to his mouth without any hesitation. While he was chewing and swallowing the piece of meat, he didn’t appear to be uncomfortable or disgusted at all.
Everyone knew that Gu Yu couldn’t eat spicy food.
Like Xu Weilai, Xiao Chun loved eating spicy food. When she was young, she couldn’t understand why some people didn’t eat spicy food, so she once pranked Gu Yu by making him eat some chili. At that time, he got so furious his eyes turned red. She was frightened at the sight.
From then onwards, she never dared to make him eat spicy food again. Additionally, she warned Xu Weilai against feeding him any spicy food.
Even so… since when was he able to tolerate chili?
Xiao Chun retracted her gaze and walked to a corner. She took out her phone and gave Xu Shuai a call. The moment Xu Shuai picked up, she got right to the point. “Since when did Brother Yu start eating spicy food?”
Xu Shuai remained silent for a while, probably because he was too stunned to speak.
Xiao Chun got impatient. She urged him, “Hurry up and tell me!”
Xu Shai did not respond.
The sound of clothes rustling could be heard from the other end of the phone. Xu Shuai seemed to have just woken up. Then, his footsteps were heard. Finally, the water tap was turned on and the sound of water flowing down was heard.
He washed his face to wake himself up before finally opening his mouth to say, “Chunchun, you woke me up with a call bright and early in the morning, but you’re asking a question about another man. I might just get jealous…”
“Get out of here!”
“I’ll leave then!”
“Wait, come back! Answer me before you leave!”
Xu Shuai heaved a long sigh and stopped teasing her. He replied, “Three years ago, he drank ate spicy food for three months after Xu Weilai left. Are you happy now?”
Xiao Chun instantly hung up.
Xu Shuai threw his phone to the side and smiled as he shook his head. Why did she need to know everything? Sometimes, a little mystery can be a good thing!
Xiao Chun grabbed her phone tightly. She stood on the same spot for a long time, only lifting her leg again when she regained her composure. She walked to the door of the office and raised her hand to knock on the door.
