Why did he feel that her tone was wrong?
Tao Ran asked in his heart, ‘Xiao Mei, if I can neither complete the task nor pay the liquidated damages, what will happen to me?’
Panda Xiaomei said, "If you fail, host, you might not be able to survive, so naturally you won't have to bear the debts.”
Tao Ran: “...”
Tao Ran became more nervous as he went into the room.
Long Qiu was sitting behind her desk with her back facing the floor-to-ceiling windows, sunlight pouring in from behind her. It made her look as though she was shining with holy light, so he couldn't look directly at her. Tao Ran almost knelt down and called Buddha's mercy.
Long Qiu saw the ninety-nine red roses in Tao Ran's hand and the corners of her mouth twitched. Then, she quickly held back and continued to sit upright, lifting her chin slightly. Her demeanor was like a queen putting on her crown.
Tao Ran walked over and said, "Ms. Long, the roses you wanted."
Long Qiu's expression changed. "What roses did I want?"
Tao Ran: "???"
The system, Xiaomei crazy. "Host, you are too stupid! Why would a woman ask you to buy flowers for her?"
Tao Ran understood and immediately changed his words. "This is my heart, please accept it."
Long Qiu's expression eased, she held the bouquet and sniffed their fragrance. Her heart seemed to be soaked in honey, sweet and throbbing. Tao Ran looked at her expression and said hesitantly, "You said that as long as I come with the flowers, you would give up on Bai Shaohui. Does that still count?"
Long Qiu glanced at him, then nodded. "Yeah."
"That's good, that's good." Tao Ran breathed a sigh of relief, nearing to finally completing the task and being one step closer to that 999,999,999.998.
Looking at the relieved Tao Ran, Long Qiu was both amused and happy. She said, "I thought about it clearly, and you're right. Bai Shaohui has poor taste and poor eyesight. I really don't have to think about him all the time. I should look for better ones."
"That's Miss Long." Tao Ran was excited. He slapped his thigh. "You are so beautiful and so good, what kind of man wouldn’t want you? Bai Shaohui is a golden jade but he is not a good person."
Long Qiu couldn't help laughing, she saw a lot of people outside stealthily listening, but she didn't care at all. She walked up to Tao Ran, tilted her head, and looked at him for a while, then closed her eyes.
Tao Ran: “What do you mean by… ?”
Tao Ran looked at Long Qiu carefully for a while, and then praised, "Miss Long, your makeup is very good, there is no flaw at all."
Long Qiu stamped her foot on top of Tao Ran's feet in anger, causing Tao Ran to bend down in pain. Long Qiu took the opportunity to hold Tao Ran's face, and then she kissed him.
In an instant, the galaxy reversed and the mountains and rivers collapsed. The grass mud horses raised their thousands of iron hooves, the Yamei butterfly fanned its wings in the air, and the African elephant ran across with its big nose. Tao Ran's cranial nerves processed quickly, he stared and held his breath as if he had become a feather in an instant.
After kissing for a long time, Long Qiu let go of Tao Ran, and Tao Ran sat down on the ground. Long Qiu nervously said, "What's the matter with you? Is it the sequelae again?"
Tao Ran organized his thoughts and words for a long time. He said, "Miss Long, have you never been in love when you were growing up?"
Long Qiu, squatting in front of Tao Ran with a red face, nodded. "Hmm."
"Do you know that you can't kiss anyone with your mouth?" Tao Ran's shocked heartbeat stopped. "You can only kiss the person you love and the person who loves you. "
Long Qiu pursed her lips and smiled. "You think I'm an idiot, not knowing even this?"
Tao Ran pointed to his mouth and tremblingly said, "Then you… why are you… you treat me like this..."
"Stop pretending." Long Qiu smiled and said, "I know all about you. I’m willing to give you the opportunity to be my boyfriend."
‘Klang! Dang!’, something crashed on the ground. Tao Ran called the system Xiaomei in his heart, ‘Xiaomei, what does she know about me?’
Xiaomei said sympathetically, "Last night, when Bai Shaohui came to see you when you were in a coma, he told Long Qiu that you have had a crush on her for a long time, thinking about her all the time. After that, Long Qiu's eyes changed when she looked at you."
Tao Ran fainted with black covering his vision before panda Xiao Mei could say another word.
Long Qiu rushed Tao Ran to the hospital. The doctor said in a very annoyed manner, "I already told you that his emotions should not be agitated, why didn’t you pay attention? How did you become the patient's family member?"
Long Qiu said so solemnly for the first time, "Doctor is right. I’m not good. I shouldn’t have but, is he really hopeless? I mean, can’t his sequelae be cured?"
"Brain injury is the most difficult to treat at present. As long as he’s not stimulated, his symptoms will diminish after some time." The doctor said earnestly, "You’re his girlfriend, you can't make your boyfriend nervous or angry."
Tao Ran lay on the bed, pretending to be dizzy with tears in his heart flowing quickly. Mother help me!! He said to System Xiaomei, "Why did you say she likes me? What does she like about me?"
Xiaomei: "Don't underestimate yourself, you still have advantages. For example, you work hard."
Tao Ran: "What's the matter with Long Qiu? Does she like anyone normally? Do you think she has eye problems?"
Xiaomei: "After examining, Long Qiu's eyes are very healthy, and both eyes have a small degree of power..."
"Xiaomei, say, if I reject Long Qiu, will she become wicked?" Tao Ran asked.
Xiaomei: "According to the system's calculation, she will."
"Woo woo woo...what should I do, why is this my fate?" Tao Ran bit his horn and wept.
"Dear host, your Xiaomei suggests that you accept Long Qiu and be her perfect boyfriend. Because only in this way, Long Qiu will always be happy and keep her true, good, and beautiful self..."
Tao Ran asked, looking at her lower body. "May I ask you how I can be a perfect boyfriend?"
Xiaomei was sluggish as she said, "Or host, you can try it yourself."
Tao Ran: "I refuse."
"Or you can wait and wait for Long Qiu to be bored and take the initiative to leave you."
This was another way. Although Tao Ran was a man on the surface, he couldn't do the shameful things done in bed with a woman. In addition, a normal woman would have this need, and as long as he was unable to satisfy Long Qiu in this respect, Long Qiu would get bored of him sooner or later. When that time comes, it would be then, that he, Tao Ran, would retire.
After making up his mind, Tao Ran smiled confidently and said, "Okay, that's it. It’s not difficult for a woman to fall in love with myself, I don't believe it’s also so difficult for a woman to dislike myself."
After talking with the doctor, Long Qiu came in. After seeing Tao Ran awake, she walked over and said, "How are you?"
"I'm fine." Tao Ran smiled at Long Qiu. "I was just too excited."
Long Qiu reached out and touched his head. As if touching a puppy, she said, "Weren’t you too excited? Are you hungry? Do you want to eat?"
Tao Ran was really hungry so he nodded. Long Qiu called the assistant and asked her to bring a farmhouse’s old hen soup.
Tao Ran swallowed, and said from the bottom of his heart, "You are so good to me."
Then Long Qiu kept smiling at Tao Ran, uh... it was a smile. It is said that women in love have negative IQs, and Tao Ran felt that Long Qiu was almost there right now.
Return my cold-blooded Miss Long!
The assistant put down the phone and froze for a long time. Miss Long always wanted to eat chicken soup made from a farmhouse’s old hen. Mom, where would she get this? And even if she did find it, she still has to cook it, and it won't be available to eat for at least the next five hours.
The assistant called her grandma in the countryside, "Grandma? It's me."
"I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine, don't worry..."
"Boyfriend? Will have it in the future, our company has all the handsome guys..."
"Grandma, do you perhaps raise chickens at home? Can you send them to me? Yes... I want to eat them."
The assistant first ordered chicken from her grandma's and kept it for future use. Then she immediately ordered a pot of chicken soup in the restaurant. The chicken in the restaurant said it was an old hen, but the assistant knew it probably didn’t belong to a farm. Today, she would make do with the fish eyes first, and next time, she must let President Long drink the most authentic farmhouse chicken soup.
Because of Tao Ran's high-profile delivery of the flowers, and Long Qiu anxiously sending Tao Ran to the hospital, their love story was now circulating in the company. The little wolf dog made a high-profile show of his love for the female president. After her love responded, he fainted in excitement. The female president condescended to give artificial respiration, and the two kissed.
Life was more exciting than TV, and several queen screenwriters in the company immediately got inspiration. Many works have been created based on the two of them, and they hoped that Tao Ran could participate in their script.
Tao Ran could be discharged after he woke up. Long Qiu personally drove him home and the two went upstairs together. Looking at the apartment, Long Qiu said, distressed, "Isn’t this house too small? I'll buy you a villa."
Tao Ran was excited and almost fainted again. He took Long Qiu's hand and said, "Small ones are better; smaller ones are warmer."
Long Qiu didn't know what he was making up, but immediately blushed and sat next to Tao Ran, saying, "You are so kind, you know exactly what I want.”
“What??" Tao Ran looked dazed, and said in his heart, how did you come up with such a misunderstanding?
Long Qiu sat beside Tao Ran. The two of them didn't talk and just sat together quietly. Tao Ran asked, "Miss Long, why do you like me?"
Long Qiu replied, "I don't know, I just like you."
Tao Ran said, "If one day you find that I am not that perfect, would you still like me?"
Long Qiu smiled and said, "What are you thinking about? You’re now poor and lazy, and always love to get into trouble too, but don't I still like you despite that."
Tao Ran: "..." Heaven! Can't go on talking.
The two of them sat until it was dark until Tao Ran couldn't bear it anymore, so he said, "Let’s stop sitting down, let's do something else."
Long Qiu blushed and said, "Okay, it's up to you."
"We can eat.” Tao Ran asked, “Can you cook?” he said, “You can cook for me.”
“No.” Long Qiu shook her head.
“Then, I will cook for you.”
Miss Long said that there was no need but Tao Ran insisted. He went to the kitchen to open the refrigerator. Finding nothing in the refrigerator, Long Qiu said, "There’s no food, I’ll let the assistant bring some."
"No need." Tao Ran said, "I can order the ingredients."
Tao Ran ordered egg noodles, meat, fish, and tomatoes in the Meituan supermarket, near the location of the apartment in the city center and they were delivered quickly.
Tao Ran said, "Do you want the fish in soup or braised?"
Long Qiu didn't know much about cooking, so she said that anything’s fine. Then Tao Ran started cooking. He used to pay a down payment to save money. Willing to order takeaway or eat out. He bought his own groceries every day, and he developed his cooking skills over time. And he doesn't like to just make do, he has to cook delicious food, unlike his mother who likes to fry all kinds of dishes into a pot. It has a great variety of varieties.
Tao Ran first cooked the rice, then fried the fish in braised sauce, and then made braised pork with tomatoes and eggs for soup. The food was just enough for two people. Doing too much was tiring and wasteful, and washing dishes was annoying. He hates washing dishes the most.
Tao Ran moved fast. The food was on the table in less than an hour.
Sitting at the dinner table, Long Qiu looked at the fragrant food on the table, as if he was filling up her heart, especially happy and satisfied.
She said, "Do you know you're the first one to cook for me and the first one to care about what I eat?"
Tao Ran swallowed the pork, wondering, "You have not eaten at home before?"
"When I am at home, I am only with the maid.” Long Qiu said, "If I don't pay her salary, would she still cook for me?"
Tao Ran went silent for a while but still couldn't hold back. "In fact, to some extent, I also get my salary from you...”
Long Qiu: "Think about it before speaking next time."
Tao Ran: "...Okay."
Tao Ran put a piece of fish in her bowl. "Eat more fish, it tastes delicious and you won’t gain weight."
Long Qiu immediately laughed and her eyes narrowed. Tao Ran looked in her eyes, disillusioned in his heart. He felt really guilty that he had committed evil, and he really felt guilty for turning a good woman like this.
After Tao Ran and Long Qiu each had two bowls of rice, Long Qiu added another bowl. Tao Ran looked a little uncomfortable, and said, "Are you hungry? If you can't eat it, don't eat it."
"That won't work." Long Qiu said, "This is the dish you made for me. I must finish it."
Tao Ran thanked himself for not making too much. On the other hand, he was a little touched. There were many people who have eaten his dishes but she was the first one to take it seriously. Eat as you like, isn't it just a dish? It's not a big deal to make it for you every day.
