Pampering My Cute Pet – Chapter 22

Translated by: Sky

“Then just put the tomatoes in.” Yu Wan directed from the side. At this moment, Shen Qingzhou’s cell phone rang, “Take out the cell phone in the right pocket.”

Yu Wan obediently pulled off the apron, reached out to touch his phone and took it out. The caller ID read: Lin Yeyu.

Yu Wan‘s mouth flattened, “Here, the big star is calling.”

Shen Qingzhou glanced back, “Answer it, hold it for me.”

Yu Wan reluctantly pressed the answer button, and then held it to Shen Qingzhou’s ear. Shen Qingzhou responded while frying vegetables, “Hello.”

On the other side of the phone, “Qingzhou, Tang Yue and I are having lunch outside. Are you free to come over?”

“You two can eat, I’m not coming.”

“I heard from Mengmeng that your crew is off today. What’s wrong, you are still busy?”

Yu Wan who was casually holding the phone on his side, unconsciously pulled the phone away from Shen Qingzhou’s ears. Shen Qingzhou looked at her, “Hold it closer and stand still.”

Yu Wan put the phone close to him with an ooh, then said with a mouth shape, “The frying is almost done.”

Shen Qingzhou intoned, “Would you like to add something?”

Yu Wan handed him the chicken essence, “To add flavor.”


Shen Qingzhou talked to Yu Wan while focusing on stir frying and completely forgot that someone else was on the phone with him.  Lin Yeyu on the other end of the phone had a stiff expression, “What are you…what are you doing?”

A voice suddenly came into his ear, and Shen Qingzhou remembered that he was still on the phone, “Cooking.”

“You know how to cook?” Lin Yeyu was surprised, “Didn’t you used to never enter the kitchen before?”

“Now I feel fine.”

“En…” Lin Yeyu was silent for a while, “Is there anyone beside you?”

“It’s Yu Wan, so I won’t be coming for lunch today. I’ve already cooked. Is there anything else? If not, I will hang up first.

“Hey, Qingzhou…”

Toot Toot Toot

Tang Yue saw that Lin Yeyu’s face was not good, then thought of her words just now, “Is there anyone beside you?” He almost guessed it, probably the crew’s little screenwriter is with our big director Shen.

“Ahem, he won’t come, so let’s eat well.”

“Tang Yue, Is Qingzhou with that girl?”

“I’m not sure.” Tang Yue was a little embarrassed. Both sides are friends. He doesn’t want to hurt Lin Yeyu, but some words have to be said truthfully. “However, Qingzhou does like Yu Wan quite a bit. I can tell.”

Lin Yeyu was stunned, then laughed silently, “I’ve known him for so many years, and this is the first time I have seen Shen Qingzhou like this.”

“Ye Yu…”

“It’s okay, let’s eat. I still have to rush to the crew in the afternoon.” Lin Yeyu lowered her head to hide the tears in her eyes, pretending to be looking at the menu with a relaxed expression.

Tang Yue sighed in his heart, “Okay.”

On the other side, Shen Qingzhou prepared the last dish under the guidance of Yu Wan.

“Tomato scrambled eggs, braised pork ribs, and eggplant with fish flavor.” Yu Wan lied at the edge of the table and looked at the three dishes. Then, she took out her mobile phone to photograph this memorable scene, Shen Qingzhou’s cooking debut.

“Director Shen, it looks pretty good.”

Shen Qingzhou reached for her collar and pulled her back, “Sit down and try it.”

Yu Wan nodded and took the chopsticks he handed over. Then, under Shen Qingzhou’s watchful eyes, she took a piece of ribs, put it in her mouth and slowly bit into the meat, “En…..En?” Yu Wan tasted it carefully, “En.”

Shen Qingzhou became impatient with her inscrutable appearance, “Can you eat it or not? Speak.”

Yu Wan swallowed and smiled teasingly, “Director Shen, I’ll teach you other dishes next time. You’ll definitely be able to become a teacher in no time.”


Yu Wan raised her eyebrows, “You’ll know when you try it, it’s delicious.”

Shen Qingzhou was in a happy mood, the corners of his mouth slowly curved up, and he took a bite with his chopsticks. However, after he ate it, his eyebrows slowly furrowed and he put down his chopsticks unhappily, “Unpalatable.”

Yu Wan took a bite of rice and said while eating the scrambled eggs, “I think it’s quite delicious. After all, it’s the first time. It’s already good to make it like this.”

As a result, Shen Qingzhou’s dissatisfaction with his own cooking was calmed by Yu Wan’s eating. Watching her eat the vegetables happily made it seem that the dishes were really delicious.

“Hurry up and eat, I can’t finish this much.”

Shen Qingzhou hesitated for a moment, picked up his chopsticks again and began to eat slowly.

Yu Wan looked at him with satisfaction. After all, he is a new apprentice. As the master, she has the obligation to encourage and appreciate him.

At this time, Red Beans came running from the living room. He stood under the dining table and looked up at the two of them.

“Red Beans, you also want to eat? Here, I’ll pick a piece of meat without bones for you.” Yu Wan picked up a piece and passed it to Red Beans’s mouth. Red Beans with a happy face, approached and sniffed it. After a moment, it turned and walked away with it’s face drooping in silence.

Shen Qingzhou, “…”

Yu Wan smiled dryly, “….Red beans must have eaten too much for lunch today.”

Shen Qingzhou had a black face.

At about two o’clock in the afternoon, Shen Qingzhou pulled up Yu Wan from her nap.

“Why…” Yu Wan hadn’t got enough sleep and looked confused.

Shen Qingzhou, “You have slept for an hour. If you continue to sleep, then you will become a pig.”


“Get up and go for a run.”


Yu Wan stretched her waist and weakly followed behind Shen Qingzhou. Looking at his back, Yu Wan realized that Shen Qingzhou was wearing a tracksuit.

The long, slender body wrapped in sportswear looked lean and attractive, especially those two long legs that were hateful. When they got all the way to the gym, Shen Qingzhou suddenly stopped, and Yu Wan hit him directly on the back.

“Hiss… hard.” Yu Wan clutched her nose, her nose slammed into Shen Qingzhou’s back, and hit hard.

Shen Qingzhou looked back at her helplessly, “Go over there.”

Yu Wan stood one front of the treadmill and frowned. Three seconds later, “How does it work?”

Shen Qingzhou was speechless, certain that this person was an exercise idiot.

Since Yu Wan was a beginner, Shen Qingzhou pressed a relatively low speed, but he warned her not to come down until she had run for at least 30 minutes.  Yu Wan thought that it was only half an hour, so it was not a big deal.  What made her more dissatisfied was that the treadmill was facing away from other machines, so she couldn’t see what Shen Qingzhou was doing.

Because Yu Wan wanted to know how Shen Qingzhou was working out, at the beginning, she looked back from time to time to appreciate the beautiful man’s coolness without panting.  But after a short while, Yu Wan was no longer able to turn back.

“Director Shen… can I take a break?”

  Shen Qingzhou sat on the exercise bike next to her, supervising her while exercising, “No, there are still eight minutes.”

“But I’m dying of exhaustion.” Yu Wan’s sweat was dripping on her body drop by drop. Exercise really was her Achilles’ heel.

Shen Qingzhou, “You can still talk, which means you’re okay.”

 Yu Wan looked like she wanted to cry, but under Shen Qingzhou’s glare, she didn’t dare resist.

Finally, half an hour was up. When Yu Wan got off the treadmill, she almost came down to her knees. Of course, she was almost kneeling, but fortunately Shen Qingzhou held her arm.

“Is it comfortable to sweat?” Shen Qingzhou looked at Yu Wan’s wilted face with a faint smile.

Yu Wan reached out and held his waist for support, “Wasted.”

Shen Qingzhou curved his lips, “Continue tomorrow, you won’t be so tired if you practice more.”

“Continue?” Yu Wan looked up at him with an aggrieved face, “I don’t think I’m suitable for exercise.”

Shen Qingzhou saw her pitiful appearance and felt a little bit soft, but didn’t want to indulge her in this matter, so he turned his eyes, “Thirty minutes a day, when you get used to it, we can add time.”

“…” Yu Wan felt angry, so she subconsciously gripped hard.

Eh?  Eh?  Comrade Yu Wan suddenly realized that her hand was resting on Shen Qingzhou’s waist. It felt hard, elastic and full of male vitality.

Yu Wan very consciously moved her palm to the front of Shen Qingzhou’s abdomen, feeling the outline of…which is, the legendary abdominal muscles.

Shen Qingzhou corrected the irregularity of his waist. He lowered his eyes and saw someone who was still aggrieved just now, staring at his waist with excitement.  And her hands, a little unruly…

Shen Qingzhou narrowed his eyes and stared at Yu Wan a little dangerously, “Enough?”

Yu Wan was taken aback and pulled her body back, “Huh? What, what?”

Shen Qingzhou lowered his body to close the distance between him and Yu Wan, his voice carrying the heat from the exercise, “What were you doing?”

Yu Wan pursed his lips, “I…cough, cough, felt envious.”

“Envious of what?”

“Abs.” Yu Wan didn’t hide it. “Abdominal muscles are popular now…Director Shen, can I take a look at it?”

Shen Qingzhou froze, “What did you say?”

Yu Wan pointed to his waist, “Can I look at it?”

Shen Qingzhou looked at her with a heavy gaze, “Want to see?”

Yu Wan nodded her head like a chicken pecking rice.

Shen Qingzhou was silent for a few seconds, “Next time.”

“Next time?” Yu Wan, “When?”

Shen Qingzhou paused, pulled her away, and walked out of the gym, “I stink of sweat, you go take a shower.”

Seeing that he didn’t answer, Yu Wan followed up, “When will the next time be, Director Shen?”

Shen Qingzhou ignored her.

Yu Wan didn’t give up, “How about tomorrow?, um… the day after tomorrow? Oh, the day after tomorrow, there is shooting. When is it?”

“Bang!” Shen Qingzhou entered the bathroom, and closed the door on the curious looking Yu Wan.

Yu Wan curled her lips, “Stingy.”

The next day, Yu Wan who was abused by a treadmill for half an hour, was lying on the floor with sweat all over.

 Shen Qingzhou wiped his sweat with a towel and reached out to pick up the ringing phone.


“Director Shen, hello.”


“I’m in Beijing right now, and I heard that you are staying at the XX hotel. I want to talk to you about the cooperation that I told you before. I wonder if we can meet in person?”

Shen Qingzhou smiled and glanced at Yu Wan, then lifted his feet and walked out of the gym, “In an hour.”


“I’ll have Xiao Yang contact you.”


After hanging up the phone, Shen Qingzhou walked into the bathroom to take a shower, while Yu Wan also dragged her heavy feet to take a bath.

“Ding Dong.” The doorbell rang, and Shen Qingzhou went to open the door.

He opened the door to see a few men standing outside, Xiao Yang said, “Director Shen, the person has been picked up.”

Shen Qingzhou nodded, then nodded slightly to the man behind Xiao Yang, “Come in.”

Xiang Zeran entered the room and turned to the man behind him, “Huan’er, you came to talk about work as soon as you arrived in Beijing. Didn’t you think of asking me out for a drink first?”

Yu Huan took off his sunglasses, smiled with a delicate and elegant face, “Director Shen is so busy,I have to pick a time when he’s free, as for you, we can go out for a drink anytime.”
