198 What Should I Do?

    Pei Yucheng, who was still holding the girl's hand, glanced sideways at Pei Yutang. "Uncle Zhong is not around."

    Pei Yutang stared blankly at him. "Huh? Did he apply for leave? Then who is cooking?"

    Pei Yucheng replied, "I am."

    Pei Yutang, who had still been feeling gleeful and relieved about this narrow escape, turned stark-white. Trembling, he turned to Pei Yucheng slowly and asked shakily, "Wh- what... Big Brother... You want to cook?"

    Pei Yucheng asked, "Yes, why?"

    Pei Yutang suggested earnestly, "Brother, I've heard of a new barbecue restaurant that serves excellent food. Let's dine out!"

    Pei Nanxu chimed in after clearing his throat, "I also know a good steamboat restaurant."

    Pei Yutang added, "How about the restaurant with the three Michelin stars downtown?"

    Pei Nanxu suggested, "Shall we bring that French chef over?"

    Lin Yan, whose hand was still being held by Pei Yucheng, was feeling giddy. She couldn't think properly and she was unsure whether she was mistaken, but she felt that Pei Nanxu and Pei Yutang's reactions were rather bizarre.

    Lin Yan, who couldn't understand, unconsciously replied, "It would be nice to cook at home!"

    It was cheaper after all!

    Pei Yutang felt desperate when he heard Lin Yan and waved his hands dramatically to get her attention.

    Pei Yucheng asked, "What do you want to eat?"

    Pei Yucheng wanted to cook personally? She felt overwhelmed by this honor, even though her persona didn't require her to. She hastily replied, "Anything! I will like anything that you cook!"

    Pei Yutang was speechless...

    Pei Nanxu was speechless...

    Silence crept up and enveloped the entire living room.

    "Okay." Pei Yucheng released her hand and strode to the kitchen.

    After Pei Yucheng left, Pei Yutang scuttled over to Lin Yan. "Big Sister-In-Law, you have never eaten any food cooked by my brother, right?"

    Lin Yan replied, "No, I haven't. What's wrong?"

    Pei Yutang replied, "Nothing... Nothing at all..."

    Pei Nanxu looked rather helpless too.

    Lin Yan blinked in confusion.

    Her heart stopped racing, and her cheeks were no longer flushed now that Pei Yucheng had left the room. She settled down comfortably on the couch in the living room.

    She then caught sight of the limited edition poster in her bag and hastily grabbed a cushion to cover her bag and the poster.

    This was a dangerous object!

    Lin Yan tilted her head in the direction of the kitchen. It didn't seem appropriate for her to sit around and wait for food to be served...

    After making sure that her bag was hidden, she ran to the kitchen.

    Pei Yucheng, who was in the midst of preparing a meal, looked rather experienced.

    "Ahem... Mr. Pei. Do you need any help?" asked Lin Yan.

    Pei Yucheng replied, "No, it's fine."

    "Hmmm... But it's not very nice of me to just sit and wait. Let me help you with something! Then cooking won't be so tiring for you!" said Lin Yan.

    Pei Yucheng turned around and spoke in the direction of the living room. "Yutang."

    "Coming!" Pei Yutang rushed in when he heard his Big Brother.

    "Big Brother, what's the matter?" he asked in a groveling manner.

    Pei Yucheng said, "Wash and chop the vegetables."

    Pei Yutang, who certainly wouldn't disagree, nodded. "Alright! Sure, no problem!"

    Lin Yan scratched her head as she stood there awkwardly. "Third Young Master has taken care of everything. What about me?"

    Pei Yucheng took an apron and passed it to her. "Put it on for me."
