Chapter 78: This Will Be Your Ex-Husband’s Home
Li Xiaoman’s mouth opened in surprise. Raising her head and rubbing her eyes, she searched with her eyes. Was that handsome man who was cutting vegetables actually still there?
She blinked again. He was still there.
She could see his handsome side profile, with its angular features and charmingly perfect contours, and his manly posture. The expert way in which he cut vegetables was graceful and elegant. It was as if he was not cutting vegetables, but rather putting on an artistic performance.
He actually knows how to cook? Is he not the president of TE, the grandson of the Huo Family, the great and all-powerful man-god that Momo kept referring to?
She stood at the door of the kitchen like a statue and did not move, completely petrified.
Long Sihao, who was chopping vegetables, sensed her presence and turned his head. Seeing that Li Xiaoman was standing at the door looking thunderstruck, his deep, quiet eyes narrowed, his expression was calm, and he grinned slightly. He said in a deep and clear voice, “Why did you come downstairs? Go back and lie down, I will bring it up to you when it’s ready.”
“Bring it up?” Li Xiaoman felt her jaw about to drop and couldn’t help but use her hand to hold it up. Her clear pupils stared at him with surprise. Did he forget that this wasn’t his house?
“You…” Li Xiaoman blinked and gently reminded him, “this is my house.”
Long Sihao’s hands stopped briefly, and a grave expression crossed his face. His gaze darkened and his lips grew tight before he suddenly spurted out, “This is going to become your ex-husband’s house, not yours.”
“Ah…” Li Xiaoman was stunned and didn’t move.
Long Sihao glared at her intently. Seeing her standing there, he stepped towards her, a light smirk appearing on his lips. He leaned over and swept her up in his arms.
Li Xiaoman drew in a quick breath and glared at him. “What are you doing?”
Whenever faced with him, It seemed as if this was the question she asked him the most. He was always full of surprised; she never knew what he would do next.
“Go to the dining room and wait.” Long Sihao’s eyes contained traces of a smile. He looked at her and waited for her to finish talking. Then, he carried her off to the dining room.
Li Xiaoman sat alone in the dining room. Her instincts told her that things were about to get complicated.
Long Sihao actually cooked at Huo Yunxi’s home. Could he be any more arrogant?
What would happen if Huo Yunxi were to suddenly come home?
When she thought of this, Li Xiaoman’s heart began to race and her scalp began to tingle.
She stood up and was about to go to the kitchen to make Long Sihao leave when she saw him carrying over a plate of cooked food.
An intense aroma followed him into the room which piqued her appetite since she had not yet eaten dinner.
Long Sihao had her sit down and put three dishes of food on the table. He gave her a bowl of lean-meat congee and handed her chopsticks before sitting beside her.
He raised his eyebrows and gazed at her, seeing her stunned expression and her beautifully arched lips. With his deep and clear voice, he said, “Silly girl, what are you waiting for? Eat up, try out my cooking. You’re not feeling well tonight, it’s better to eat light. Next time, I will cook you a big, healthy meal.”
“Silly girl? Big meal? Next time?” Li Xiaoman’s mouth fell open, and she used her hand to hold up her jaw before it dropped. She looked at him wide-eyed and said, “Mr. Long, thank you so much for taking care of me, but we aren’t really that well-acquainted, so you don’t have to be so good to me.”
Long Sihao’s penetrating eyes squinted slightly. He stretched out his arm, pulling her into his embrace, stroking her chin with his slender fingers as she glared at him. “I don’t want to hear that we are not well-acquainted. Let me feed you.”
