“Director Shen, thank you…”
“The porridge you cooked for me. Although I didn’t eat much of it, it was still very touching.” Yu Wan’s sickly face squeezed out a hint of a smile.
Shen Qingzhou froze, “What are you thinking, When did I cook porridge for you?”
He would never admit that something so unpalatable came out of his hands.
Yu Wan pursed her lips, “Well… if you want to learn how to cook in the future, I can teach you, cooking porridge is really simple.”
“No, I won’t learn. And that porridge, I didn’t cook it.” Shen Qingzhou said that, got up and went straight towards the door of the room.
Yu Wan didn’t believe it, and insisted on reaching out behind him and shaking his hand, “Thank you…”
Shen Qingzhou, “…”
“Bang!” The sound of closing the door expressed our director Shen’s embarrassment.
After drinking the porridge, Yu Wan felt much more comfortable, but her body was still weak, so she had to go back to sleep.
When she woke up, it was completely dark outside. Yu Wan lifted the quilt, put on slippers and walked out of the room.
The living room was quiet. Yu Wan saw the slender figure lying on the sofa. His hands were folded on his stomach, simple and lonely.
Yu Wan walked over gently and slowly squatted in front of the sofa. Looking at his sleeping face, she somehow felt a little distressed. With his penchant for being a loner, would he occasionally feel lonely when he was alone?
Probably because Yu Wan was thinking too deeply, Shen Qingzhou opened his eyes and saw Yu Wan’s frowning expression. He was stunned, but he didn’t bother to find out why Yu Wan looked like she was suffering so much. He habitually reached out to touch her forehead, “No longer burning?”
Yu Wan was shocked to realize that he was awake. She watched him move, and her heart felt slightly sore.
Yu Wan was a little uncomfortable with Shen Qingzhou’s concern, but the discomfort was temporary and the joy was continuous. In this world, there are very few people who always care about her.
“It seems to be better.”
“En.” Shen Qingzhou sat up, looking at her squatting in front of the sofa in a strange pose, he felt confused, “What are you doing?”
Yu Wan was embarrassed, “I… just wanted to see when you would wake up.”
“Why didn’t you just call me? You’re out in the wind even though you have a fever, go back and lie down.”
“I was afraid of disturbing you, and besides, my fever is gone.”
Shen Qingzhou shook his head helplessly, “Okay, stand up.”
Yu Wan looked at him awkwardly, looking a little aggrieved, “That…I have numb legs.”
Shen Qingzhou glanced at her and reached out to pull her, “Get up and move.”
Yu Wan was pulled up and stood on the carpet, not moving a muscle, and forced the numbness to pass.
Shen Qingzhou looked at her with amusement and picked up the phone that had been vibrating, “What’s the matter?”
“The assistant director asked when you would be back.” Xiao Yang said on the other side of the phone.
Shen Qingzhou kept his eyes on Yu Wan, who hadn’t moved for a long time. He thought her funny appearance was quite cute. So Shen Qingzhou’s heart moved. He sat on the sofa, lifted his foot very naturally, and then ‘accidentally’ kicked Yu Wan’s calf.
“Ah, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts!” The whole numbness felt overwhelming, and Yu Wan turned her head to glare at Shen Qingzhou, “Don’t move!”
The corner of Shen Qingzhou’s mouth curled up, “Rather than tossing and turning for a long time, shorter pain is better than longer pain.”
“Hiss…” Yu Wan frowned in pain.
On the other end of the phone, Xiao Yang, who had heard all of this, was dumbfounded and broke into cold sweat, “Shen, Director Shen…”
“Everyone has been working hard lately. Let’s have a two-day holiday.”
Xiao Yang, “…Yes, yes.”
“Well, hang up.”
“Okay, you carry on, I’m sorry for the interruption.” Xiao Yang quickly hung up the phone.
Shen Qingzhou was slightly confused and looked at the phone. Disturb? What interruption?
In the lobby of the hotel, the assistant director saw Xiao Yang hang up the phone and asked, “What did he say?”
Xiao Yang’s soul was still floating, “Well, Director Shen had an urgent matter and gave us a two-day holiday…”
“Huh? What’s the urgent matter?” The deputy director wondered, “Forget it, I’ll call him myself.”
“No, no, no!” Xiao Yang quickly pressed the assistant director’s hand, “You shouldn’t disturb Director Shen right now, perhaps… it’s a very important moment.”
“Huh?” The assistant director was stunned.
Xiao Yang, on the other hand, had an indescribable look…
In the hotel room, Red Beans was happily eating the snacks fed by Shen Qingzhou. Yu Wan didn’t want to stay in the room and wanted to watch TV. So, she was forcibly wrapped in a blanket by Shen Qingzhou, and was now sitting on the sofa like a dumpling.
“I think I’d better go back to my own room.”
“Well, then no one will know if you burned to death in your room in the middle of the night.”
“……I feel better.”
Shen Qingzhou frowned and glanced at her, “The doctor said that you’re prone to repetition, don’t you understand?”
“Oh.” Yu Wan thought for a while, and then said, “But, it would be easy to be infected, right?”
“You think I’m like you, with such poor physical fitness.” Shen Qingzhou looked at her disgust, “You stay at home every day. Before, What other activities did you have besides walking Majesty?”
Yu Wan recalled seriously, “Does cooking count?”
The corner of Shen Qingzhou’s mouth twitched, “After you get well, go do some exercises. There is fitness equipment in the room, you can go for a jog.”
Yu Wan shook her head repeatedly on hearing this, “I won’t, I don’t like it.”
Shen Qingzhou, “That’s why you are like this, easy to get sick.”
“So, do you workout often?” Yu Wan’s gaze naturally fell on Shen Qingzhou’s abdomen, cough, cough, wearing clothes, it was a pity that she couldn’t see it.
Shen Qingzhou, aware of her line of sight, turned away coldly, “I run for 40 minutes two hours after dinner every day.”
“Huh?” Yu Wan was aggrieved, “I don’t usually exercise…”
Shen Qingzhou didn’t say a word, but he thought ‘Usually those female celebrities go on a diet and exercise every day to have a slim figure, but the ‘dumpling’ in front of him doesn’t exercise and eats a lot of snacks yet she is still so skinny.’
Yu Wan stared at the TV depressedly, and suddenly she realized one thing, “Well, you work out too?”
“I don’t have any equipment in my room.”
“So I asked you to come over.”
“Okay!” Yu Wan remembered that she might be able to see Shen Qingzhou…hehehe, just run, it’s a big problem to be lazy.
Shen Qingzhou glanced at her and was surprised that she would have this attitude, but he didn’t ask too many questions. Anyway, it is more important to grab her to run and improve her physical fitness.
At night, Yu Wan naturally went to sleep in Shen Qingzhou’s room. After lying down, she found out that it seemed… she should go to the guest room to sleep, right? However, Shen Qingzhou didn’t say anything, and seemed to acquiesce.
Yu Wan’s heart was filled with joy. Well, the trust, the affection, is another step closer.
Early in the morning, Shen Qingzhou woke up from the guest room, he walked out of the room to take a look at the master bedroom and then walked to the kitchen.
He opened the refrigerator and saw that it was full of ingredients, all left over by Yu Wan. Shen Qingzhou remembered the failure of egg and lean pork porridge, and silently closed the refrigerator door.
He went to the phone in the hotel room and ordered breakfast.
The hotel’s breakfast was quickly delivered. After the waiter went out, Shen Qingzhou instructed Red Beans to follow him, “Go wake up Yu Wan.”
“Go in.” Shen Qingzhou helped Red Beans open the door, and Red Beans entered the room leisurely through the gap. Shen Qingzhou took a look towards the bed, on the right side, a figure was slightly raised.
Red Beans went over to the bed, staying on the pillow, Yu Wan was sleeping comfortably. Feeling that there was a pet causing trouble next to her, she stretched out her hand to embrace it, “En… stop making trouble.”
Hearing the soft and glutinous sound of sleep coming from the bed, Shen Qingzhou gazed slightly and lifted his feet towards the room.
He stood at the edge of the bed and looked condescendingly at Yu Wan, who was now forcefully hugging Red beans with half her face stuck in the pillow, like a small child who had not grown up.
Shen Qingzhou’s gaze became softer and softer. If the crew were to see this appearance, they would probably be shocked and unable to find their jaws. How could Director Shen’s expression be like this?
After a while, he took the thermometer from the bedside table, and bent slightly over her ear to check it. It was 36.8, no recurring fever. He was relieved that she didn’t have a fever.
Shen Qingzhou looked at her for a while, remembering her blushing face and the feel of her skin, he reached out and cupped the side of her face.
Yu Wan’s sleep was deep, but if a person is disturbed by a dog like this, she will be a pig if she can sleep. She opened her eyes in a daze, and looked at Shen Qingzhou’s slightly smiling expression.
It was like a dream, Yu Wan couldn’t tell whether the person in front of her was real or not. She blinked her eyes, reached out and held the back of the man’s hand, and murmured, “Warm, not a dream.”
Shen Qingzhou paused and averted his eyes somewhat unnaturally, “Ahem, get up and eat.”
Yu Wan sat up in a daze, “Why did you pinch my face just now?”
Shen Qingzhou was serious, “See if you still have a fever.”
“It’s fine for now, get up and eat something, and then you can sleep when you want.” After saying that, he called Red Beans out of bed, and two figures, one high and one low, walked out of the room.
Yu Wan raised her hand and touched her face, “Is the temperature tested like this?”
After Yu Wan washed up, she walked to the kitchen. The dining table was set with a beautiful breakfast. She sat down across from Shen Qingzhou and picked up her fork, “You didn’t make this, did you?”
Shen Qingzhou paused, “When have I ever done that?”
Yu Wan raised her eyebrows and took a bite of the grilled sausage, “I don’t feel uncomfortable anymore, let’s cook for ourselves at noon, um… I will teach you.”
“Learn it. It’s very simple, you can try it later at home by yourself.”
“Learn. Tomato scrambled eggs? Braised pork ribs? Fried broccoli?”
Yu Wan stood by the kitchen counter, watching Shen Qingzhou cut tomatoes, and leisurely said, “Be careful not to cut your fingers.”
“Eh eh, scramble the eggs first.”
“…Director Shen, add the oil.”
“How much?” Shen Qingzhou knotted his eyebrows.
Yu Wan thought it was funny to see him rusty, so she held back a smile and said, “You put it in first. Okay, stop.”
Shen Qingzhou stopped, then poured the beaten egg into it. For a moment, a crackling sound rang out, and Shen Qingzhou consciously took two steps back.
Seeing the oil splashing out, Yu Wan quickly took the apron next to her and stretched out her hand, “Lower your head.” Damn, it’s too high.
Shen Qingzhou took a spatula in his hand and consciously lowered his head.The apron straps were looped around the back of Shen Qingzhou’s neck, the posture of tying the apron with her arms around his neck made her look like she was about to fall into his arms. Yu
Wan fixed her mind and raised her eyes to look at Shen Qingzhou. This angle happened to show his thin and light lips. Yu Wan was a little startled, remembering the time he had kissed her…
The atmosphere was unexpectedly ambiguous, Shen Qingzhou lowered his eyes to look at Yu Wan, whose eyelashes were fluttering, and his heart was slightly moved.
Yu Wan stood on her tiptoe, unable to support herself, she shook slightly. Shen Qingzhou was quick eyed and held her waist with his hands, his voice was magnetic like mellow red wine, “Be careful.”
Yu Wan pursed her lips, feeling a little hot behind her ears, she nodded and turned to the back in a hurry.
Shen Qingzhou watched as two hands reached out to his waist and pulled his apron back. He tilted his head back. Yu Wan was concentrating on tying his apron with her eyes lowered.
Shen Qingzhou was silent, and his heart that had been frozen for more than two decades and only recently started to melt ice, was unbelievably soft at this moment. He seemed to enjoy this feeling.
When Yu Wan finished tying the belt and looked up, she ran into Shen Qingzhou’s gentle eyes. She froze, “What’s wrong?”
“Huh?” Yu Wan accidentally passed him and saw the eggs in the pot, “Eh! Scramble the eggs, scramble them, they are going to burn! Hurry up, hurry up.”
Shen Qingzhou woke up and quickly turned around to scramble the eggs, flipping them a few times with a nervous face, “It’s not burned.”
Yu Wan breathed a sigh of relief, “Fortunately, add some salt.”
