The onion oil noodles made by Qin Siting were so delicious that she felt that she could keep thinking about it for the rest of her life. It could definitely be ranked in her top three favorite dishes.
Thankfully, the auntie he hired was quick-witted. She knew that aside from placing various ingredients in the fridge, she also needed it to place a lot of fast-food noodles. It could be done very quickly.
Shi Niange sat in his villa and found that it was much bigger than her villa. Previously, she felt that it was very big just by looking at it from the outside. Now that she was sitting in it, she felt that it was too empty for him to live in this villa alone. He needed another female owner here.
She rubbed her hands secretly as she imagined herself walking around like a mistress, secretly happy. It was only when Qin Siting placed the onion oil noodles in front of her that she was directly attracted by the fragrance. She took a bite to taste it, and her eyes immediately lit up.
“You like it so much?” Seeing her unconcealed expression, Qin Siting chuckled.
“That’s right. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. After eating it last time, I’ve been looking forward to the next time I can eat it.” When Shi Niange was eating, she looked up at him. “Why don’t you eat it yourself?”
“I’m not hungry yet. I saw that you were in a hurry, so I made one for you first. I’ll make one for myself when I’m hungry.” As he spoke, he took a tissue from the tissue and reached out to wipe the corner of her mouth. “Eat slowly. If it’s not enough, I’ll make another one for you.”
Shi Niange sat there unmoving to look at him because of his movements. Qin Siting seemed to have realized what he was doing. He did not put down his hand and remained by the corner of her lips. His eyes met hers.
Shi Niange put down her chopsticks and looked at him. She suddenly said, “Qin Siting.”
“En,” he answered. He put down his hand but did not shift his gaze away from her.
“At our age, there’s nothing to say about dating, right? It’s not considered puppy love, right?” She blinked.
Qin Siting seemed to know what she wanted to say and curved his lips. “En.”
This word seemed to contain a hint of laughter.
“We’ve known each other for so long. We’ve been deskmates for so long. I’ve even confessed to you. And because of me, you…”
Before she could finish speaking, her phone on the dining table rang.
Shi Niange lowered her head and saw the number displayed on the screen. Her eyelids suddenly twitched.
Why did he suddenly call her?
She didn’t know why, but it was clearly her childhood friend. Why did Xiao Luye suddenly call at this time? She felt so guilty.
Qin Siting also glanced at the name on her phone screen. When he saw the name, he calmly raised his gaze and fixed it on her. “Is the Shi family very familiar with the Xiao family?”
“…En, when we were very young, the Xiao family was still in Hai Cheng. We could be considered family friends, but we haven’t really interacted much these years.”
“Why aren’t you answering your phone?”
“Ah? Oh.” It was only then that she remembered to answer the call. She quickly picked it up, but the phone had been ringing for too long. The moment she picked it up, the call was automatically hung up.
She had just heaved a sigh of relief when it rang again. It was another call from the other side.
Shi Niange silently rolled her eyes at Xiao Luye in her heart. It was fine if he didn’t answer the call once, but he still wanted to continue. Why was he so insensible? He was busy confessing his love to her. Why did he add to the mess?
She picked up the phone. Before she could speak, she heard Xiao Luye’s voice. “You’re not home?”
“Home? Which home? The Shi family?” Shi Niange was stunned.
“Li Shui Villa.”
“You’re here?” The voice on the other end of the phone clearly maintained a high level of suspicion.
How did he know she wasn’t home?
Shi Niange thought of a possibility and quickly stood up with the phone in her hand. She walked to the window and looked out. Sure enough, she saw Xiao Luye’s car parked outside her villa. Xiao Luye was holding a large bouquet of roses in one hand and making a phone call with the other. Although she couldn’t see his expression as he stood there, she could tell from his posture that he must have written on his face: I took the time to visit you, but you actually dared to leave me at home. These words.
When Shi Niange saw the flowers in his arms, the corners of her lips twitched. “Ah, I originally wanted to go home, but I had something on at the last minute, so I returned to my grandfather’s laboratory. I might not be returning tonight.”
At this time, she could only bring up her grandfather, because they had been playing together since they were young. Every time she was naughty, Xiao Luye would stand up for her. When she was punished to stand up, Xiao Luye would secretly come in and take her away to play. When he saw her, he wanted to roll his eyes. Since she was young, she knew that her grandfather didn’t like Xiao Luye, and Xiao Luye himself knew it. So at this time, only her grandfather could frighten him.
“Is that so?” Xiao Luye casually leaned against his car door and casually placed the bouquet of roses back into the car. “Is your grandfather’s laboratory still in that lousy place? Should I go over now?”
“Ah? No, no, no. It’s not like you don’t know that my grandfather wants to beat you up the moment he sees you. Don’t provoke him. The laboratory is quite busy. If you go over and cause trouble, my grandfather will probably scold you again,” Shi Niange persuaded earnestly.
She stood there as she made the call, thinking about how to persuade him to go back. She could avoid meeting him, and he wouldn’t find out that she could actually see him now. She didn’t notice when Qin Siting walked over and stood behind her.
“You brought flowers?”
All of a sudden, a calm and clear voice came from behind her, startling her. She turned her head abruptly and saw Qin Siting standing behind her. His eyes were looking out of the window, which was the car in front of her villa, that person.
Xiao Luye suddenly heard a man’s voice on the phone. The voice seemed to be very close to her. He raised his brows and his eyes instantly turned cold. He held his phone while looking at Shi Niange’s villa. After confirming that there was no one in her villa and that even the door outside was locked, he turned to look at the surrounding villas and finally fixed his gaze on the villa opposite.
Even though they were so far away and the lights were not turned on, making it impossible for him to see clearly from the outside, Shi Niange still felt a chill down her spine. She quickly put down her phone and covered the microphone. She then turned to look at Qin Siting who was standing by her side.
She whispered, “Don’t make a sound. Don’t let him find me here.”
Qin Siting did not speak again. He stood by the window and looked in the direction where Xiao Luye was standing. At this moment, Shi Niange was no longer looking at him, but Qin Siting seemed to be looking at him from afar.
