"Why is the kitchen decorated like this? What's so good about cooking? "

"I'm just curious. I heard from your father that you hate the cooking smell most. Why did you today..."

"Ah -"

Zoe was absent-minded. She rolled the carrot in her hand and the blade fell on her fingertips.

"What's wrong?"

Wade came in a hurry. Seeing that the chopping board was wet with blood from Zoe's fingertips, he was shocked and said, "Wait a minute."

When he brought the first-aid kit from the second floor, Zoe had already cleaned the wound. Wade looked closer and found that the wound was very deep, and there might be scars left.

"Why are you so careless?"

"I was too careless."

Zoe smiled awkwardly, with mixed feelings in her heart.

Was he testing her from the very beginning? Everyone in the dormitory knew that Nancy hated cooking smell, but she made such a low mistake and came to him.

No wonder he chuckled when she called and said she was going to cook for him.

He had seen through everything. Was he watching a good show as if nothing had happened?

Zoe's fingers trembled, not knowing if it was because of pain or shock.

She knew that he was smart, but she didn't know that he was so smart that he even played her in his palm.

She glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and warned herself that she was the one who did the wrong thing. Even if the other party really fooled her, she had to hold it back. However, she understood everything in her heart, but her mouth was out of control. She blurted out directly, "Wade, do you..."

"How do you feel? Do you need some more medicine? There is no spare at home. Wait for me here. "

Before she could ask more questions, the man in front of her had left. When she came to her senses, there were only some band aids left by the sink.

What kind of person was he?

He looked gentle and elegant, but seemed to be standing in the mist, distant.

She shook the blood on her finger and frowned.

Zoe was born in a small well-off family, so her family was not very rich, but she was a practical person. Normally, when her fingers were injured, she would not cry out that there would be a scar or what kind of precaution should she have? She simply washed the wound and directly put the band aid on it.

Wade lived in a high-class neighborhood, and there were no rows of supermarket and pharmacy around. He might have to drive this time.

Looking at the unfinished carrots, Zoe took a deep breath and quickly cut the vegetables. She had planned to show her cooking skills to Wade today, but after such a mess, it seemed that it was doomed to die.

Nancy was the kind of person who could burn the kitchen even if she cooked instant noodles.

Zoe touched the round carrots and sighed, "I'm sorry, little cutie. I have no choice."

Then she cut the carrots into pieces and put the oil into the pot.

She put the fried vegetables on the table and called a taxi with her mobile phone. With Zoe's actions, she proved that she was a diligent and obscure girl.

When Wade came back, two cars just passed by. She even saw him driving attentively. She tightened her fingers, but he did not notice the ordinary her.

As he went out in a hurry, Wade didn't even wear a coat, and a simple white shirt had been pierced through by the night wind. But to his surprise, facing the empty room, his heart was even colder.

"Miss Nancy?"

There was no response in the room and no shoes at the door.

She just left alone, but the room temperature seemed to fall.

The medicine bag in his hand was thrown directly to the sofa. When he was about to go back to the bedroom, he saw from the corner of his eyes that there were dishes neatly placed on the table, covered with a thermal cover.

Raising his eyebrows, Wade casually opened the nearest box, in which there was a plate of fried cabbage... It was hard to believe.

It was so dark that he had no desire to take a second look at it.

When she came here with vegetables, [明明] was in high spirits and skillful. Why was she so bad at cooking?

Puzzled, Wade scratched his eyebrows. J

ust as he didn't know what to do with the 'poison', his phone rang.

It was Eason Chan's "Red Rose", in which the unique magnetic and charming voice was singing in a circle, "What you can't get is always in turmoil, and those who are favored have nothing to fear..."

When the phone rang for the third time, Wade finally answered, "What's wrong? I have told you not to call me after eight o'clock."

His voice was casual and joking, not as reserved and alienated as he was in front of Zoe.

The man on the other end of the phone begged bitterly, "God, please come and save us. Didn't you say that you were going to sign the contract with the development site of the female devil Kathy Tong? The contract has been reached, and Kathy Tong suddenly wants to go back on her word!"

"If she regrets, she has to pay the liquidated damages. What's the problem?"

"But the problem is that Ladd Liu, who is a loser, is bewitched by the female devil. Ladd Liu told her all about our company's business plan. Ladd Liu fell down by himself, but he hasn't signed the contract!"

Wade closed his eyes and pinched his nose, "Ask him to write a self-criticism report to me tomorrow."

"Will you come to the company tomorrow? Oh? It seems that you are the only one who can deal with the female devil... "

"Beep, beep, beep..."

Before that man finished his words, Wade had already hung up the phone, looking a little tired.

Everyone thought that Wade could easily do something they couldn't solve.

And it turned out that Wade did live up to everyone's expectations.

He had been a genius since he was a child. He had participated in all kinds of competitions at a young age, graduated from university ahead of time, started his own business and established a listed company. Up to now, he had formed a stable cooperative relationship with the industry leaders.

Because of his high IQ, he was pinned high hopes. His life was busy and orderly, and everything was planned. He was ready to spend the rest of his life like this.

Zoe's appearances might be interesting enough to break this rule, but in the end, it was only temporary.

Without taking another look at the burnt dishes on the table, he turned around and went upstairs.

Compared with Wade who was able to manage his emotions calmly, Zoe seemed to be at a loss.

She rushed back to her dormitory at night and begged the dormitory keeper to open the door. At least, she could go back to her warm bed. However, facing everything she was familiar with, what flashed in front of her was still Wade's calm face.

He leaned against the sofa and looked down; when he slightly turned his head to look at her; when he spoke with a faint smile at the corners of his mouth. How could there be such a perfect person in the world? Perfect and unreal.

'And the unreal him, did he see through the fake me today?'

Zoe turned over and was about to get up. When she was about to call Nancy, she found that Nancy was sleeping evenly on the opposite bed. He had no choice but to turn on her phone. It was already one o'clock in the morning.

At this time.

Enduring the mixed feelings in her heart, Zoe covered her head and hypnotized herself. One sheep, two sheep, three sheep, little fat sheep, plain stomach, little fat ox... What a hot pot.

Wade had a strong aura. It seemed that it would be better to end the battle as soon as possible.

At five o'clock in the morning, the supervisor of dormitory got up and began to recite the words and run. Zoe didn't feel sleepy until three o'clock in the morning covered with the quilt. After being waken up, she regained some consciousness and suddenly opened her eyes.

Her first reaction was to pick up her phone to see if there was a missed call, but there was even no WeChat message.

Zoe held her phone in a daze. She knew she should be grateful, but her heart was empty.

Since she failed to cook that day, Wade had never contacted Zoe again.

Zoe was confused and asked Nancy tentatively. But Nancy's parents said that Wade hadn't visited them recently and the cooperation went on as usual.
