The peeled shrimp was not placed in Xia Xibei’s bowl. Qiao Yanjue was not in a hurry, putting it in a clean bowl and continuing to peel the next shrimp.
As he worked, he said, “I’m not lying. I really do like peeling shrimp.”
This hobby of his had recently appeared and would last for a while.
He was used to being served by others, never taking care of someone else.
However, watching Xia Xibei eat all that shrimp he had peeled gave him a strange sense of satisfaction.
“Have you peeled shrimp for other people?” Xia Xibei asked.
“No!” Qiao Yanjue blurted out.
After saying so, he saw Xia Xibei’s contemptuous gaze. He didn’t worry about it, explaining slowly, “I don’t like to peel shrimp for them.”
Who could ask him to work but his parents?
But his parents didn’t ask him to do this either.
Xia Xibei was about to chuckle. How could he say such amazing words without changing his expression?
“Then why do you like to peel them for me?”
“Sister Hong asked me to take care of you, so of course I will do it.” Qiao Yanjue’s facial expression remained the same. “Besides, I’m in a good mood.”
“In a good mood?” Xia Xibei was perplexed. “When you are in a good mood, you like to peel shrimp?”
What a unique way of putting things.
“Yes,” Qiao Yanjue nodded. “I found that after peeling shrimp, my mood improves!”
“Then should I buy you a few catties of shrimp to make you feel better?”
“Sure,” he nodded, “But you have to eat them after I peel them.”
“You can give them to Sister Hong.”
“She doesn’t like shrimp.”
Xia Xibei’s mouth twitched. She couldn’t keep talking about this anymore.
Qiao Yanjue chuckled lightly and pushed the bowl full of peeled shrimp in front of Xia Xibei.
“Eat. Don’t let my time go to waste.”
Looking at the shrimp in the bowl, Xia Xibe hesitated. She took a sip of water and picked up her chopsticks.
“Fine, let me help you out.”
“So should I thank you?” Qiao Yanjue smiled.
Seeing Xia Xibei eat shrimp bite after bite, Qiao Yanjue’s mood improved. Could feeding someone be addictive?
“Were there any issues at the company?” he asked.
“Issues?” Xia Xibei asked, looking up. “No issues.”
“Is your company pretty good?”
“It’s not bad, otherwise I wouldn’t have signed with them. I’m not stupid.”
Although Xia Qinghan and Bai Meixue were there with her, the company was big and they did not control everything.
There could be some problems later, but she was prepared, not very worried that they would hurt her.
But she didn’t need to tell Qiao Yanjue all these things.
“Great.” Qiao Yanjue didn’t ask her any more questions. “If there’s any issues, come find me.”
“Find you?” Xia Xibei raised her brows. She was about to refuse but nodded after a beat. “OK.”
While she had said yes, Qiao Yanjue could see that she didn’t take the statement seriously. If she really encountered problems in the future, she wouldn’t ask him for help.
This girl gave him so many headaches.
He had better ask people to keep an eye on her, or she would be bullied.
The two of them continued to eat quietly, talking occasionally. The mood was harmonious.
When they were almost done, Xia Xibei’s phone rang.
On the other end of the line came Tang Luo’s weak voice whispered, “Xibei, help…”
