Chapter 9 - Showing the true colors (2)

Cong Rong pointed to his shopping cart, "I think I want that bottle."

Wen Shaoqing turned his head, glanced back, and smiled, "Oh, then you can just think about it."

Cong Rong took the bottle of yogurt from Wen Shaoqing’s hands fiercely and turned to walk to the checkout counter. Wen Shaoqing followed behind her.

After coming out of the supermarket, Wen Shaoqing watched her retrieve her suitcase from the storage area. He asked in a joking tone, "you are not going to continue to sleep in the law firm?"

Cong Rong calmly replied, "the heater in the firm will turn off at night, it would be cold."

Wen Shaoqing suddenly laughed, “want to have dinner together?"

Cong Rong was bewitched by that beautiful smile, and she followed him to his house and waited for him to open the door, she suddenly wanted to repent.

The sky was already dark. As soon as he opened the door, she saw a white shadow pouncing towards them, and Cong Rong immediately ducked behind Wen Shaoqing.

Wen Shaoqing chuckled softly, turned on the light, and bent down to touch Rang Yi Rang’s head. "It's very clever and it won't bite."

Cong Rong is still hiding in the corner by the door, "I know it won't bite..."

Wen Shaoqing coughed and laughed, "Rang Yi Rang, go play in the balcony."

Cong Rong looked at the balcony, the wind was strong at night and she suggested, "the balcony seems quite cold… It should stay here"

Wen Shaoqing raised his eyebrows and looked at her, "Are you sure?"

Cong Rong gritted her teeth, "Let it play in the study."

Cong Rong felt embarrassed to stand there and stare at Wen Shaoqing while he was cooking. She suddenly remembered the handwritten medical notes she saw previously at Zhong Zhen’s place and wanted to go to the study room to take a look. But remembering that Rang Yi Rang is playing there, she gave up this thought.

Cong Rong sat on the sofa and was wondering if she should go to the kitchen to help when the phone on the coffee table in front of the sofa suddenly vibrated.

Cong Rong glanced at the caller ID "Qin Chu" on the phone screen flashing and suddenly felt slightly uncomfortable. But thinking that there might be an emergency in the hospital, she ran to the kitchen door and called out to Wen Shaoqing, "your phone is ringing, your colleague is looking for you!"

Wen Shaoqing probably was busy with cutting and cooking, and he replied: "Please help me pick it up."

Cong Rong was about to pick up his phone call and saw that Rang Yi Rang suddenly rushed in front of her, staring at her intently.

Cong Rong was startled and immediately entered the kitchen. Being next to Wen Shaoqing made her feel safe.

Wen Shaoqing wiped his hands dry and picked up the phone. Cong Rong heard a female voice coming from the other end and heard him reply after some time: "No, I am already making it. It’s almost done."

The female voice at the other end said something again with a laugh. Wen Shaoqing glanced at Cong Rong, stared at her with an intense gaze, "Forget it, I have a friend here with me, it's inconvenient." Then he quickly hung up the phone, handed the phone to Cong Rong, washed his hands, and began to put salt into the pot.

Cong Rong could tell that Wen Shaoqing spoke to Qin Chu in a courteous but alienated manner, not like how Zhong Zhen guessed. She probed, "do you need to go back to the hospital to work overtime?"

"No, my colleague asked me to go out for dinner. She heard that I was cooking and asked to come. I rejected it." Wen Shaoqing explained concisely and asked, "How do you know Qin Chu is my colleague?"

"Uh..." Cong Rong was startled for a moment, hesitant to tell the truth and found an exclamation, "Zhong Zhen told me."

"Why would he tell you about this?"

"Nothing, just some gossips. He told me about the one Qing two Chu and you being very skillful with using lancets.'"

Wen Shaoqing focused on the last part of her reply, "do you often talk about me?"

"Not at all." Cong Rong felt that he would be able to tell something if the topic continues and decided to change the subject. He saw the unfriendly look on Rang Yi Rang’s face and leaned slightly towards Wen Shaoqing. "What's wrong with Rang Yi Rang?"

Wen Shaoqing looked at Rang Yi Rang and looked at Cong Rong. "I guess… you snatched his job. It would usually get the phone for me when it rings."

Cong Rong was speechless, and she accidentally became Rang Yi Rang’s rival.

Wen Shaoqing turned off the fire and brought the dishes to the dining table, "most of the time it pounces on you to play with you. It means that it remembers and recognizes you. It is also very naughty. If it finds your reaction every time you dodge when it pounces on you very interesting, then... did you find that every time it sees you, it would want to pounce on you? If you show fear, it knows that you are afraid of it and all the more it would pounce on you. If you remain calm, then it wouldn’t find you interesting anymore."

Cong Rong looked at Rang Yi Rang, and then looked at Wen Shaoqing. 

Wen Shaoqing stood at the table and called her, "come and eat."

Cong Rong didn't pay attention when she came to his house last time, only to find out this time that Wen Shaoqing is quite “swag”.

She pointed to the carved patterns on the chopsticks and asked, "the chopsticks are quite unique with these carved flowers. Where did you buy them?"

Wen Shaoqing gave her a bowl of soup and said, "It’s ordinary chopsticks from the supermarket, I bought them back and carved those flowers myself."

Cong Rong knew Wen Shaoqing's lancet skills were good but not to the extent of being “mad”. How bored was he to carve flowers on chopsticks?

Cong Rong sighed at his madness but immediately changed her attitude when she tasted the dishes

"This eggplant is delicious! How do you make it?"

"Hmm... this yam is nice too!"

"This pork rib is also delicious, but it's too spicy, I don't eat spicy food."

Cong Rong waved her chopsticks excitedly, but she could no longer keep her normal calm and serious looks. Wen Shaoqing stared at her for a long time, with a slightly complicated expression, "Why didn't I find out...that you are a foodie?"

There are two kinds of foodies, the first kind is those who eat whatever they see and find everything delicious. Cong Rong belongs to the second kind, who is extremely picky with food and is not usually a foodie. However, once she tastes something delicious, she will immediately turn into a glutton.
