251 My Delicious Wife

    "You may serve our food," Lin Yiqian called out to the waiter outside the room.

    As Lin Xiaoyu was already famished, he kept staring out of the room in anticipation of the food that would soon be served.

    Only when their food arrived did Xiaoyu shift his gaze away.

    The kid's meal was first to be served. Although Xiaoyu had already picked up his fork and was ready to dig in, he did not forget to address Gu Nianshen politely before doing so. "Daddy, Mommy has ordered a lot of tasty food for you. I'm going to dig in now."

    As soon as Xiaoyu finished his sentence, he had already placed a piece of the chicken wing in his mouth.

    Shortly after, the waiter began to serve the remainder of the dishes. Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian arranged the dishes that Gu Nianshen preferred right in front of him.

    When Gu Nianshen saw the various dishes that he had a liking for, he glanced at Lin Yiqian in surprise. "Did you order these for me?"

    As Lin Yiqian did not have the courage to look Gu Nianshen in the eyes, she shifted her gaze to the steak in front of her. "When we went to Xin'an to receive the awards, I saw you ordering these dishes during lunch. I wasn't sure if you liked them or not," Lin Yiqian replied, calmly.

    The awards-receiving luncheon happened at the beginning of the semester when they were in the second year of high school. Gu Nianshen, Lin Yiqian, and Xi Xia had attended the event together.

    Lin Yiqian had actually remembered that event and also what he had eaten during lunch.

    Although Gu Nianshen was aware of Lin Yiqian's incredibly good memory, he had not realized that she had actually paid attention to what he ate back then.

    As Gu Nianshen became aware of this, he began to carefully examine Lin Yiqian's wholesome facial features, including her thick eyebrows and high nose bridge, which appeared even more distinguished under the bright lights.

    Gu Nianshen could not help but sigh in awe at the sight of this beautiful woman who sat before him.

    The sight of her filled him such that he no longer felt hungry.

    As Lin Yiqian peeked at Gu Nianshen from the corner of her eyes, she found that he was staring at her the entire time.

    Lin Yiqian's hands trembled as she cut a small piece of steak and placed it in her mouth before chewing silently.

    Could Gu Nianshen have seen through her inner thoughts from her mention of the single incident from the past?

    The more Lin Yiqian pondered about it, the more panicked she felt. "Why are you looking at me like that?" Lin Yiqian asked, curiously.

    "I enjoy eating all of these dishes," Gu Nianshen replied, softly with a goofy smile on his face.

    As he looked at her face, he felt eager to devour her completely.

    With the thought in his mind, his body temperature began to rise as his heart pounded harder.

    Hurriedly, Gu Nianshen shifted his gaze away from Lin Yiqian's face before picking up the glass of orange juice that had just been served and emptied it in one gulp.

    Then, he gazed down at the steak in front of him and pretended to look full. "I will do my best to eat this."

    As he spoke, he picked up his cutlery and began cutting the steak, gracefully.

    'What a difficult man!' Lin Yiqian thought as she lowered her head and secretly rolled her eyes at Gu Nianshen.

    She decided to ignore him as she started eating the food on her plate.

    From their long dining table next to the window, they could see the splendid view of the city of Shanghai and the coast next to it.

    The surface of the ocean glistened beneath the moonlight as waves danced along to the peaceful gusts of wind.

    Coupled with the slow and romantic music played in the restaurant, the view appeared even more spectacular to one's eye.

    Whilst Lin Yiqian gazed out of the window, Gu Nianshen rested his face against one arm as he stared at her.

    She seemed like a work of art that had been brought to life by a painter.

    Even as a waitress entered the room with food, ready to be served, she could not bring herself to interrupt the romantic moment.

    "Mommy, why aren't you and Daddy eating?" Lin Xiaoyu was very confused when he took a pause from his fervent consumption of the food before him as he noticed Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian staring into the distance and not eating anything at all.
