Rebirth of the Best Businesswoman at School - Chapter 1272
1272 Invitation to Taste
The next day, they released Wang Yunfa.
He had been detained at the police station for the past few days. Because he had not gone through the legal process, they could not consider him to be in jail these days. He could only be said to be under surveillance.
At ten in the morning, the old man, the old lady, and Li Xia came to pick him up. Officer Wang sent Wang Yunfa out personally. After being detained inside for the past few days, he looked exceptionally dispirited.
His body, which was not considered strong, to begin with, became even thinner. Although he did not look like he had suffered any physical pain, his entire vitality was gone.
It was as if Wang Yunfa had lost half his life. When the two elders saw him like this, the resentment in their hearts dissipated, leaving only heartache.
“Yunfa, my son…”
The old lady cried and pounced forward. She hugged the stunned Wang Yunfa and started crying.
Wang Yunfa narrowed his eyes at the sunlight. When he heard the old lady’s cries, he seemed to have regained his senses. His small eyes moved slightly before he saw his family members who had come to pick him up.
“Dad, Mom, Wife,” Wang Yunfa called out. His voice was a little hoarse, but fortunately, it sounded normal.
The old man’s heart ached, but he didn’t want to show it. He only nodded gently and said to the crying old lady, “Alright, stop crying. Let’s go home first!”
Only then did the old lady let go of Wang Yunfa. With tears all over her face, she asked Officer Wang, “Officer Wang, will this end? Will you arrest my son again?”
“Auntie, don’t worry. This case has been closed by private settlement. There won’t be any problems in the future,” Officer Wang said patiently.
“Thank you. Thank you.” The old lady thanked Officer Wang.
Seeing this, Officer Wang quickly helped the old lady up and said to Wang Yunfa, “Don’t be so rash in the future. You’re going to be a father soon. Remember to think twice about everything. As the saying goes, take a step back and the sea and sky are wide. You could have avoided this!”
“I understand. I’ve troubled you.” Wang Yunfa’s attitude was okay. After adapting to the light outside, his mental state seemed to have eased a little.
Officer Wang sighed. “It’s not troublesome for me, but your parents are already so old. They can’t withstand such torture. Alright, go home!”
Everyone thanked Officer Wang again before leaving the police station in a car.
Jian Ai had been good recently for a while. Every day, she would visit three places: martial arts school, school, and home. It was mainly because it was almost the end of the year and the company had entered the statistical stage. Bai Zhou was very busy.
Even Ji Haoyu had been very quiet recently. Other than making a few ‘harassment calls’ to Jian Ai occasionally, Jian Ai had not seen Ji Haoyu since Wang Yunmei’s birthday.
It made sense. The New Year was the busiest day for all corporations, so how could Ji Haoyu be an exception? As one of the top financial groups in Asia, the Ji Group must be even busier.
After school, that day, Jian Ai and Guan Tao walked out of school.
“Qinghuan’s scenes are almost wrapped up, right?” Guan Tao asked.
Jian Ai sighed. “Because she accidentally fell from the roof and got injured last time, she affected the production team’s progress. When I called her two days ago, she said that the production team was rushing for progress recently and wanted to finish filming within expectations. After all, the director and assistant director are big shots. They have other jobs later, so she doesn’t know if they can catch up.”
“Has her injury healed?” Guan Tao was a little worried. “Qinghuan is so strong-willed. She shouldn’t drag her half-crippled body and force herself.”
“Don’t worry. Yan Tian goes to visit every week and asked the doctor. Although it takes a hundred days to recover from a serious injury, fortunately, Qinghuan’s muscles and bones were not injured. She only fell hard, so she’s fine. She just needs to lie down and recuperate for a week,” Jian Ai said.
Only then did Guan Tao nod in relief. “That’s good.”
The two of them walked out of the school gate and to the bus stop. Guan Tao looked at Jian Ai and asked, “Are you going back to North City?”
Jian Ai smiled and said, “I’m going to my friend’s for dinner.”
Initially, Bai Zhou had been busy these days, so Jian Ai didn’t look for him. She didn’t assign him additional missions to increase his pressure. She just wanted him to focus on handling the company’s end-of-year summary.
Unexpectedly, Jian Ai suddenly received a call from Bai Zhou at noon today. He asked her to go to the apartment tonight. Jian Ai asked what was wrong, and Bai Zhou said: Try the dishes!
Jian Ai agreed without thinking. With delicious food, she naturally wouldn’t miss it.
After Guan Tao got on the bus home, Jian Ai crossed the road and hailed a taxi to Bai Zhou’s apartment.
At this moment, in the apartment, Chi Lian was sitting on the sofa feeding her snake. Other than Chi Lian and a snake, there was no one else in the huge living room.
In the kitchen, Bai Zhou looked at the ingredients on the counter and frowned slightly, looking exceptionally resistant.
Chi Yang stood at the side and said, “You know all the ingredients, right?”
Bai Zhou nodded and pointed them out one by one. “These are potatoes, this is brisket, these are onions, this is garlic, and that pile is spices…”
Seeing that he could recognize all the ingredients, Chi Yang was relieved. Then, he pointed at the seasoning table and said, “Can you distinguish the seasonings?”
Bai Zhou shook his head innocently and looked at Chi Yang pitifully. “Why don’t you do it once and let me see again? I’ll learn after seeing it once!”
“No, you can only follow the recipe. Otherwise, it’s equivalent to cheating!” Chi Yang rejected mercilessly.
Bai Zhou’s handsome face instantly collapsed. “Xiao Zhen won’t know if you teach me secretly!”
“Then there’s no point in competing. Master, competitive spirit!” Chi Yang reminded him with a fake smile.
Bai Zhou pursed his lips and gave up resisting. He said reluctantly, “Alright, teach me how to recognize the seasonings!”
Chi Yang looked at Bai Zhou’s defeat and couldn’t help but hold back his laughter. However, he still went forward and picked them up one by one. “This is salt, this is sugar, and this is starch. Don’t mix it up. If you can’t tell, try it with your tongue.”
“This is soy sauce. This is vinegar. Don’t mix it up!”
“This is wine. This is fish sauce. Don’t mix it up!”
“This is oyster sauce, this is nectar, and this is olive oil…”
In this apartment, the kitchen was Chi Yang’s world. As a three-star Michelin chef, Chi Yang’s seasonings were so complete that it made one’s hair stand on end.
Ten minutes later…
“Did you remember everything?” Chi Yang looked at Bai Zhou and asked.
At this moment, Bai Zhou’s entire state was “Who am I? Where am I? What were you talking about?”
“I… probably… might… remember it…” Bai Zhou said guiltily.
Chi Yang would not give him another chance. Hearing this, he clapped his hands. “The recipe is on the wall. I’ll leave the kitchen to you!”
