Chapter 1 – Zhou Chen was Salivating When He Saw Her for the First Time
At twelve o’clock in the afternoon, Ke Ke walked into the Office of Traffic Satefy’s police unit. The cold air was blowing on her face, unlike the heat outside. The office was filled with the smell of food.
A few traffic police officers were quickly using their chopsticks to put food into their mouths while they were discussing the car accident scene that they had just dealt with. It was like the accident did not affect their appetite at all.
Upon seeing this, Ke Ke was a little speechless. Then, she waved at He Shi, who was talking on the phone.
“Go to the conference room on the third floor of the brigade in the afternoon for the meeting.” Then, He Shi hung up the phone and said to her colleagues, “I’ll be going first.”
Everyone waved to He Shi. “Hope the blind date goes well!”
Xiao He was from the police unit in the Office of Traffic Safety of the First Brigade of X City. She had been on the job for less than a year. Because of her beautiful appearance, there were aunties and older sisters who were keen to introduce her to a boyfriend.
It’s just that Xiao He herself didn’t seem to feel strongly about it and always evaded them. She and Xiao Ke were both from the brigade and had a good relationship with each other. The person who wanted to introduce her to a boyfriend this time was Xiao Ke’s mother. Mother Ke worked in the municipal committee. She happened to meet He Shi and wanted to play matchmaker.
He Shi went to the bathroom to change into casual clothes and held Ke Ke’s hand as they walked out.
He Shi: “I’m hungry. If I didn’t have something to do, I would have eaten with them just now. The new Jiangnan restaurant tastes really good.”
“I know you love to eat. You wouldn’t have agreed to go on a blind date this time if it wasn’t at the special private kitchen. It was very difficult to make a reservation there.” Ke Ke thought what she had said was ridiculous. She didn’t expect to use this method to break He Shi’s fortress. “I also admire the people in your squadron. They love to eat and even discussed an accident while eating.”
He Shi smiled and didn’t respond.
Ke Ke added, “Even though it’s my mom who wants a match between mandarin ducks, my cousin’s qualifications are really good! My mother already told you about his family conditions, but I want to say something more realistic——how good he looks! Very handsome! If you saw him, you’ll know there is absolutely nothing deficient.”
He Shi was amused. “Let’s talk again when I’ve seen him.”
Meanwhile, when they left the Office of Traffic Safety.
Colleague A: “…With that being said, I think this tofu is a bit like that. Ah, I don’t feel like eating.”
Colleague B: “I don’t feel like eating anymore either. I was very hungry a moment ago, but now I feel sick.”
For some reason, the delicious takeout food suddenly could not cover up the car accident scene they saw when they were working. Everyone put down their food that they barely touched at the same time. They looked at each other in dismay, and felt that the other person was a bit slow to react.
Lantian Private Kitchen.
A middle-aged beautiful woman sat across from a young man in an impeccable suit. He looked profound and had handsome facial features; his figure was tall and his personality was as cold as snow-covered pine trees.
Mother Ke took a sip of tea and continued to talk to her nephew. “Xiao Chen, can’t you stop putting on an unhappy face? How thin have you become? Do you still have a bad appetite? Many people praise this private kitchen’s cuisine. The young lady didn’t want to come either, but agreed when she heard that she would be eating here. Maybe there will be something you like to eat…”
The silent Zhou Chen was so tortured that when his cell phone rang, he felt rescued and quickly answered the phone.
A few moments later, Zhou Chen said in a deep voice, “Okay. I’ll return at once.”
When Mother Ke heard this, she immediately put down the teacup. “Where are you going back? Back to the office? The meal hasn’t even started.”
“Auntie, the project I’m in charge of has an urgent issue. Please arrange another meeting and apologize to the girl for me.” Zhou Chen said he was sorry, but he got up without the slightest hesitation. He buttoned his suit while he walked out.
Mother Ke was angry and quickly chased after him in her high heels. She was full of doubts and asked, “Hold on, how can there be such an issue that you have to be there in person and you can’t even wait until after you eat?”
“Auntie, if I’m going to lie to you, then I might as well not come.” While Zhou Chen was talking, he had already reached the elevator and pressed the button.
“Isn’t that because…” Mother Ke thought to herself. Because I dragged you against your will?
She was very adamant. She still tried to persuade him, “The girl is almost here. You can at least say something to her in person. She’s a particularly outstanding young lady. Her parents are both scholars and she has just been admitted to be a civil servant. Her talent in writing is excellent. I have heard that she has always been fond of literature and is an amateuar author…”
“Auntie, it’s too late. Let’s talk about it next later.” Zhou Chen firmly squeezed Mother Ke’s shoulder. The indifferent brown eyes glanced at her with a bit of a chilly look that made Mother Ke shocked for a moment.
WIth a soft “ding”, the elevator arrived and the two elevator panels separated.
The people in the elevator were revealed, and there were two girls standing inside.
One girl was Zhou Chen’s younger cousin Ke Ke. When she saw them, she was happy, but surprised. She didn’t understand why they were at the elevator entrance.
The other girl also looked up. She was wearing a gradient blue dress and the bottom looked like the deep sea. Her exposed skin was white with a sense of transparency. The most outstanding part were the two misty dark eyes under the smooth forehead that was extremely attractive.
She was not dazzling, but intriguing.
There was also something more important. At the moment when Chen Zhuo saw the girl, he suddenly developed an intense hunger and appetite after only eating without tasting the food 1 for three years! It was stronger than all his cravings for food before he lost his appetite!
His tongue had even secreted saliva and he was almost drooling…
Zhou Chen’s eyes firmly clung to He Shi’s body. He looked down inch by inch starting from her hair, as if he was going to peel her skin and bones with his eyes and eat her clean little by little. His eyes were so explicit that he couldn’t hide it——or had no time to hide it.
Those eyes were so intimate to the point where they were not suitable to appear in public. As a result, this scene was so ambiguous that it was a bit erotic. It was seriously inconsistent with Zhou Chen’s calm and reserved style.
Both Ke Ke and Mother Ke had a strange look and were even shocked. They only felt that Zhou Chen’s eyes were too… too much.
It was even more inconceivable that this was Zhou Chen.
When he stared at Miss He, she looked so frightened with her eyes lowered. She seemed too scared to look back at him or even leave the elevator.
Chen Zhuo was so preoccupied with staring at her with naked eyes that he didn’t even have the slightest concern about how he was standing at the elevator entrance and made it difficult for people to walk around.
Ke Ke came back to her senses and suddenly felt embarrassed. She winked at Zhou Chen. “Cousin, this is He Shi. Xiao Shi, this is my older cousin Zhou Chen.”
As soon as these words came out, it took a full three seconds for Zhou Chen to restrain himself. He silently withdrew his eyes and turned sideways to make way for them. “Miss He, please.”
He Shi nodded in greeting. Perhaps she was a little embarrassed by Zhou Chen’s rude action or the look in his eyes, because she walked a few steps ahead of them towards the Lantian Private Kitchen.
Zhou Chen held his eyes back that were pursuing her figure. He lowered his head and licked his lower lip thoughtfully.
It was obviously a small and indecent action. However, with Zhou Chen’s face and temperament, it could not make people feel obscene.
When Ke Ke and Mother Ke looked at the scene in front of them, they quickly exchanged blank and incredulous looks. They were a little excited, as if they had witnessed something secretive together.
Mother and daughter both knew what to do. Mother Ke walked up to her nephew and asked pleasantly, “What’s the matter? You don’t need to be busy with work again?”
Ever since He Shi appeared, Zhou Chen’s eyes gradually darkened. Now, he looked at the Lantian shop sign and said, “It’s more important to eat delicious food.”
Mother Ke smiled happily with her mouth covered as if she clearly understood a riddle.
Ke Ke hurried to catch up with He Shi. And therefore, neither she, Zhou Chen, nor Mother Ke had seen that He Shi had also stuck her tongue out and licked her delicate and plump lips.
