Chapter 346: You’ll Cook
“Go ahead and sleep! Later, I’ll drop by my office to show my face for a while. On the way back, I’ll go to the supermarket to buy some groceries. Then, I’ll call Xuyao and Haoyu to join us for dinner,” Zhou Weiqi uttered without turning back while wiping the sweat on his forehead.
To buy some groceries at the supermarket?
Jiang Yao blinked in a daze. “But, I don’t know how to cook.”
After a pause, she quickly added again, “You’ll cook?”
“Yes! Of course!” Zhou Weiqi nodded and chuckled. “Xingzhi doesn’t even let you cook, how can I ask you to do it? If I ever let you into the kitchen, he will skin me alive when he finds out about it!”
Jiang Yao nodded, agreeing to what he said. Indeed, Lu Xingzhi did not want her to step into the kitchen at all. He would cook and wash the dishes himself. He would do his own laundry if he had the time and never left it to her to do it.
In fact, he would even do her laundry when he sees her clothes lying around.
Looking at Zhou Weiqi’s swift effort in mopping the floor, Jiang Yao felt that he was very efficient at house chores when he was serious, he must be very good at cooking too, so she went back to her room at ease.
When Jiang Yao lay on the bed, she curled her lips into a gentle smile when she heard his obvious attempt at lowering the noise he was making when mopping in the living room. He was probably going slower so that she could take the nap she needed. She could feel the genuine kindness and care Lu Xingzhi’s buddies were giving her, that they took her as their own to take care of.
Thus, she suddenly understood Lu Xingzhi’s authentic intention toward his buddies, he was genuinely sincere and devoted, like they were related by blood.
Jiang Yao spent the whole afternoon working in the laboratory of the system.
Jiang Yao had a very good memory since she was young. When she went through the theoretical library of the traditional Chinese medicine briefly, she remembered seeing an acupuncture treatment method for induced coma from sudden cerebral hemorrhage due to high blood pressure. Hence, she quickly browsed through the library and retrieved the method.
The acupuncture treatment method required a modest pairing with Chinese medicine. Thankfully, Jiang Yao was very quick in making the medicine now, so after the medicine had been boiled, she poured it in a small glass bottle. She spent the rest of the time on acupuncture.
Perhaps, for people who lacked patience, spending four hours doing the same thing over and over again would be a torment, but it was not the case for Jiang Yao.
She took a very serious attitude in finding the right neurohormonal pathways and needles she put on the body because she knew that although she was working on a virtual patient model now, she would have to face the real patient when she exited the system.
The virtual patient model was not alive, but once she exited the laboratory, she had to face a living human. Thus, she took four hours of training very seriously. She did not allow herself to slack, be careless, or cause any mistakes to happen.
The time she spent in the laboratory seemed to be running at a different pace. She would not even know that it was getting late if it were not for the knock on the door.
It was Zhou Weiqi calling her for dinner. She put on her jacket and pulled open the curtains only to realize that it was dark outside. It was almost seven o’clock now.
Once she got out of the bedroom, she realized that not only Xuyao had come, but Lu Xingzhi was the only one absent among his buddies who came for dinner tonight.
“Jiang Yao, come, sit! I’ve prepared quite a lot of dishes tonight, so I took a longer time than expected.”
Zhou Weiqi was still wearing a black-and-white checkered apron that shredded the flippant off him but added an expression of a lovely live-in guy’s temperament.
