COLD CEO AND ARROGANT WIFE, VOLUME 4 - Season 7 Episode 14
Shui Xian opened the lunchbox and spread each layer before the two of them. It could be seen that today’s lunch was more sumptuous than on other days. But his attention wasn’t on food at all. His attention was on his wife. He couldn’t stop himself from looking at her.
While Raelle just focused on eating in silence as always. Her attention was grabbed by the food and Shui Xian’s attention was grabbed by her. He bit the tips of his chopsticks while his eyes just continued to follow her movements. He was a bit in a daze seeing her eating here in his office.
Raelle had to peel her attention away from lunch and look at him, “Eat!”
“Oh,” was Shui Xian’s response and he forced himself to pay attention to his meal.
After lunch, Raelle was about to stand when he held her wrist and asked, “Where are you going? You can’t leave so soon.”
Raelle faced him in silence before saying, “I was going to wash my hands.”
Shui Xian instantly loosened his grip on her wrist. Raelle went to the washroom to wash his hands. As she turned around after drying her hands, she found Shui Xian standing behind her.
“Do you have to follow me here as well?” she questioned.
“I am also here to wash my hands,” he retorted immediately.
Raelle walked past him. As she walked past his desk, something caught her attention. She picked up the thick document and went to stand beside the glass wall to read. Shui Xian came back and found her standing there with her back towards him.
He placed his chin on her shoulder as he hugged her waist.
“What’s with this?” asked Raelle as she pointed at the document she was just reading. “Are you entering the
“This…” Shui Xian took a deep breath and told her, “This is one of the IPs we are planning on bidding for at the Movie and Television IP Conference.”
“You’re gonna produce a show?” asked Raelle. “And it seems like an idol show as well.”
“It is an idol drama,” said Shui Xian. “To promote the company’s artists, we have decided to buy an IP and produce it. It’ll give exposure to our artists and we can reap some benefits along the way since idol dramas are in trend these days.”
“That seems like a good idea,” said Raelle.
They discussed the plan Shui Xian’s team proposed in detail and Raelle added some comments in between. Shui Xian didn’t think there was anything wrong with spending his precious time with her talking about business. Because he already knew she enjoyed talking about productive things rather than just listening to his mushy talks.
Raelle looked at the time and said, “I should leave now.”
Shui Xian’s face fell down, “Huh? Already?”
“Yeah,” replied Raelle. “I’ve been here for an hour already.”
“It’s been an hour?” questioned Shui Xian in surprise and looked at his watch. And indeed, it had been an hour. Well, he thought it had only been fifteen minutes or so. How did time pass so soon? “Do you have to go?” he held her hand and asked.
“Yes,” was Raelle’s heartless reply.
Shui Xian could only drop it but he was still unwilling. It was the first time she came over and she was already leaving. And she only came because of a bet. He didn’t even know if she’ll come again. And if yes, then when?
Raelle noticed the way he looked as she took her coat and wore it. “I have a meeting with some government officials. It can’t be postponed. I have to be there on time.”
“I understand,” said Shui Xian. “I mean, I do understand that you’re busy. And I am okay with that. It’s just that you’re here for the first time.”
“But I’m not here for the last time,” was Raelle’s reply that made Shui Xian look up at her in surprise.
“Really?” he asked her for confirmation.
“What? Do you really think it’ll be my last time here? Certainly not,” said Raelle. “I am, after all, the lady Boss around here. Surely, I’m allowed to come whenever I want to.”
Shui Xian smiled at her and agreed, “Oh, how can I forget that? You can certainly come whenever you want to.”
Raelle placed her hand on the side of his face and said, “And I will come. In fact, now that we have already disclosed our relationship at a certain level, I have to show up more often. Otherwise, what if your employees got the impression that I dumped you?”
“Oh, then I hope my wife doesn’t dump me. I’ll be very pitiful,” said Shui Xian.
Raelle kissed at the corner of his lips saying, “And I definitely don’t want to see you acting pitiful.”
Shui Xian helped her fix her hair and continued to smile, “I can’t possibly be pitiful with you around, wifey!”
“I’ll see you at home,” said Raelle as she turned to leave.
But Shui Xian held her hand making her look back at him. “You want to say goodbye here? No way! I’m coming with you.”
“You want to waste time coming down with me?” asked Raelle. “It isn’t even that far a distance.”
“No matter how long or short is the distance,” started Shui Xian. “I’ll still accompany you.” He dropped a kiss at her temple and said, “Let’s go! I want to see you get in the car and only then I’ll be satisfied.”
“You’re gonna ruin your prestige in front of your employee,” Raelle pointed out. “I heard Master Xian is considered a great man to his employees.”
“Who cares?” retorted Shui Xian. “My wife is more awesome than me. I don’t mind ruining a bit of my prestige at all.” He opened the door and stepped out while holding her hand. He really didn’t think there was anything wrong with accompanying his wife to the car. If his employees want to watch, they are most welcome to do so!
