"Hey, Sean, it's getting dark. Let's go home!"

Carla said smiling at her little brother as their eyes met.

Terence stopped playing basketball when he saw Carla. He picked up the water bottle from the ground and took a swig. He then picked up his T-shirt from the basketball stand and walked towards her.

When Carla saw that both Terence and Sean was looking at her, she felt as if she became the focus of everyone's attention.

Everyone's eyes were all on her!

"Are you finished with your work already?"

Terence said when he reached her.

"Yeah. My god! You two superstars, look at what you've done. Are you guys really playing basketball? Or are you holding a concert? You two made quite a stir in the area! Sean, how many times have I told you? You should always keep a low profile to avoid trouble. Please tell me you do understand that,"

said Carla as she put her hand over Sean's shoulder and turned him around. They decided to go home. There were fans all over the area and they all stepped aside immediately when they passed.

Terence smiled and caught up with them. He positioned his hand over Carla's shoulder and said to her knowingly, "Well, how did it feel to be in the limelight?

It must have been a little embarrassing at first, but I am betting that it made you a little bit giddy with happiness."

Carla looked back at their fans. Some of them stared at her enviously, while others gossiped. There was no denying that for the first time in her life, she attracted so much attention.

"Damn you! Are you taking me for a fool? There were so many people around. You surely knew that you caused quite a stir because you enjoyed exposing yourself in public so much. I've seen through your trick. You did that on purpose. I bet you really enjoyed being adored and ogled by those girls, didn't you?"

Carla said it so straightforwardly that it embarrassed him.

Terence didn't want to admit defeat. He lifted his eyebrows and gave her a playful punch on the shoulder. "Well, I saw that you pushed your way through the crowd just to reach us. I bet it took you so much effort. It seemed as if you were so eager to see me, huh? You are one of my adoring fans, aren't you?"

Carla's face went pale. 'How can he possibly know that? Wasn't he too busy playing basketball? I can't believe he noticed that!' she thought.

"Come on! Are you comparing me to them? I'm not one of your crazy fans. I'm a rational and mature woman. Unlike them, I will never be obsessed with you. There are a lot of handsome men in this world. Who do you think you are?"

Her ears burned with shame. Terence smiled again and whispered in Carla's ear, "I got it. You mean you are not my 'crazy' fan. You are my 'rational and mature' fan. Am I right? Don't be shy and just admit it."

Carla became embarrassed when he came closer to her. She poked his waist with her elbow and ran away with Sean immediately.

Terence rubbed his waist because her jab was a bit painful. He sighed and smiled, his eyes following the fleeing girl and her brother.

'So this is how it's going to be? You always bully me physically when you lose the war of words.

This is exactly your style!' Terence thought.

The three arrived home.

Carla was about to prepare their dinner when she surprisingly saw that the table was already set. Their meal had been already made. The fragrance filled the kitchen and Carla couldn't wait to eat immediately. It was obviously one of Terence's surprises.

'It's so strange.

He was clearly born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He doesn't need to cook for himself, but why is he so damn good at cooking?

This is so strange!

Are his ancestors all good cooks? Was he born in a wealthy family that is in the culinary industry?' Carla thought perplexed.

"Hey, what are you thinking about? The chicken soup is ready. Come on! Hand me a bowl," said Terence.

Terence went into the kitchen after he took a shower. He lifted the lid and checked the soup. He then removed it from the stove when it was done.

"Chicken soup?" Carla asked.

Carla took out the bowl from the sideboard and took a look at the soup in the pot. The fragrance kept tempting her.

"Well, I cooked it for you. You should eat more. It's good for your health," Terence said as he took the bowl from Carla's hands. He took the chicken out first, and then pour

ed the soup into the bowl.

Carla couldn't wait to taste a mouthful of the delicious chicken soup. She rubbed her belly thoughtfully. 'Did this man figure out that I just got over my menstrual period?

Normally, after their menstrual period, women are very weak. It is good to drink some soup to strengthen the body.

But I can't figure out how he knew?' Carla thought.

After a little while, Terence served their dinner. He also cooked braised spareribs and two other dishes. Everything was ready.

Sean was very hungry because of the basketball game. At the sight of the delicious dishes, his mouth watered a little.

"Terence, it was very nice of you to cook dinner for us. You are a really great chef! Thanks to you, we enjoyed so much delicious food!" Sean said happily to Terence.

"Really? Then come and live with me. I will cook for you two everyday. Like you said, I'm a good chef. What I made today is just a drop in the bucket. There are more surprises waiting for you!"

Terence said as he sat down. He was trying to draw Sean over to his side with his sweet talk.

Carla took a sip of the tasty chicken soup and glanced at Terence. 'Well, it seems that I finally figured out the reason why he cooked for us today. He is really trying to persuade us to live with him, ' she thought.

"Sean, don't eat too much, or you'd get fat. If you get fat, your fans will be deeply disappointed. Girls will not adore you any more,"

she teased her brother.

But to her surprise, Sean ignored her completely.

"Carla, I need a lot of nutrition to build up my body. If I don't obtain enough nutrition, I can't grow taller. If I can't grow taller, girls will ignore me. I need to eat a lot so that I can grow as tall as Terence. This way, I can attract a lot of girls just like him. Do you agree with me, Terence?"

Terence was amused by his wit. He rubbed Sean's head affectionately.

"You're absolutely right. You should eat more and grow taller, so that you can get girls to be all over you."

The cheerful banter of Terence and Sean silenced Carla.

She put down her spoon and stared at them with anger.

"Hey, Sean. I think it would be best if you just shut up and eat. Your dear sister is extremely irritated, and she is seriously contemplating returning to her room. If so, my chicken soup will be wasted." Terence tried to shift the attention to other things when he saw Carla put her spoon down in anger.

Carla really wanted to leave the table. However, she just didn't want Terence to know that he saw through her so she decided to continue eating.

She imagined Terence as the food, chewed it and swallowed it.

Ever since Terence appeared, she felt that her dear brother was now a lot more closer to him. Terence and Sean became the closest friends. Moreover, Sean defied her just to support Terence. She felt as if Sean preferred Terence more than her.

'Well, I admit defeat. I'm no match to those two. It does not matter how much he try, I will not live with Terence. My brother will not, either. He needs to stop daydreaming, the tricky bastard, ' she thought.

After dinner, Carla left all the chores to Terence.

She was hoping that it would give him a lot of difficulties. However, she didn't expect that Sean would help Terence. The two worked happily together, and neither of them complained. They quickly washed the bowls and chopsticks, and then

wiped the table.

"Terence, can you please take a walk with me? I bet that my sister had a long day. We better let her take some rest," Sean said to Terence after they finished up with the chores.

Because of the two-day holiday, there was no need for him to do his homework immediately. He wanted to play with Terence more.

Terence did not turn him down. He smiled and said, "OK. Well then, please wait for me downstairs. Let me have a few words with your sister before we leave. I'll be there in a flash."

Carla was busy making rose tea. She was surprised to hear Terence's words.

She spilled rose tea all over the table because she couldn't stop her hands from trembling.

Sean closed the door and went downstairs happily.

With butterflies in her stomach, Carla stared at the rose tea scattered all over the table. She sighed and started to clean it immediately.

Suddenly, she felt Terence's presence looming behind her.

She froze immediately.
