Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 98
Edited by ABE
After eating breakfast, Zhou Mengyan went to the study to deal with the next round of affairs. Ruan Yan returned to the bedroom and felt that her stomach was uncomfortable. Finally, she realized that it was her aunt who came.
It may be that I have drunk too many iced drinks these days, and now the retribution of dysmenorrhea is coming.
At around ten o’clock in the morning, Zhou Mengyan walked from the study to the bedroom after his work, and wanted to see Ruan Yan, but found her lying in bed, looking upset.
“What’s wrong? Uncomfortable?”
He stepped forward and sat on the side of the bed.
Ruan Yan told him that she had dysmenorrhea, and Zhou Mengyan frowned when he saw her uncomfortable, “Do you need me to take you to the hospital?”
She couldn’t laugh or cry, “What kind of hospital to go to…”
The man was also a little at a loss for a while, “…What should I do?”
“I’m fine, you go to work first.” She didn’t want to disturb him either.
“I have nothing to do today.”
Seeing his strong attitude, Ruan Yan saw he wanted to help, and finally took the hot water bottle she was holding out of the quilt, “Then you can plug it in so it heats up again.”
Five minutes later, he returned with the hot water bottle. Ruan Yan smiled, “Thank you.”
“What else is needed?”
Ruan Yan thought for a while, “You help me get the tablet.”
He also did so.
Then Ruan Yan suddenly realized that she was ordering Zhou Mengyan around?! He actually listened to her?!
Oh my god…
She felt flattered, and immediately said: “Actually, I don’t feel that much pain anymore. It’s okay. Go and work on your own affairs. I’ll listen to music for a while.”
“Okay.” Zhou Mengyan said that if she wanted something, she should call him.
Walking out of the bedroom, he sat on the sofa in the living room, saw the wall clock on the wall, and found that it was almost eleven o’clock.
No one was cooking at home at noon today. He originally planned to take her out to eat, but now he estimated that the girl was too uncomfortable to get out of bed and could only eat at home.
It’s unhealthy to order takeaways, and he didn’t want her to eat something unhealthy during her holiday.
After thinking about it, he planned to make lunch for Ruan Yan himself.
He hated the smell of oily smoke, so since he was young, he basically had never touched the sun and spring water*. Even when he lived abroad, he did not need to worry about his three-meals-a-day.
T/N: It means he lived a pampered life/ had no need to fend for himself.
But now, he felt that cooking for Ruan Yan was not unacceptable.
On the contrary, he was very happy.
So Zhou Mengyan started looking for recipes on the Internet and knew that Ruan Yan loved to eat noodles. He finally chose braised pork ribs noodles because he was in Sucheng’s grandmother’s house before. Ruan Yan said that she liked braised pork ribs noodles very much.
According to the recipe, he first ordered the required ingredients in the fresh supermarket on his mobile phone.
Twenty minutes later, the ingredients were delivered home.
He carried the bag and walked to the kitchen, then read the recipe roughly and began to understand the usage of the cooking utensils in the kitchen.
After studying for half an hour, he finally prepared all the ingredients.
Zhou Mengyan felt that although he rarely cooked, it would not be difficult if he did it.
When boiling water in the pot, he blanched the ribs first, then put the ribs in another pot, added spices and seasonings, etc., covered the pot and simmered.
At that point he fished out the ribs and soup, he fished the noodles again, and finally put the noodles in the ribs soup, with a few hot vegetables on top.
It was done.
Zhou Mengyan saw this appearance and felt that he didn’t need to taste it, he knew that the taste was absolutely impeccable.
Holding two bowls of noodles, he walked upstairs and opened the bedroom door.
Ruan Yan was still lying in bed listening to a book, and feeling hungry, she heard Zhou Mengyan tell her to get out of bed for lunch.
She lifted the quilt and got out of bed excitedly.
Sitting cross-legged on the carpet in front of the coffee table, Zhou Mengyan put the ribs noodles in front of her. Ruan Yan smelled the smell and was surprised: “What is this?”
“Braised pork ribs noodles.”
Ruan Yan: !! It’s her favorite!
“Wow, is this… did you do it?”
Zhou Mengyan put the chopsticks in her hand, silent for a moment, his voice was flat:
“Takeaway I ordered.”
Ruan Yan also thought that he would never cook in person, and smiled: “It smells good.”
Ruan Yan nodded, and the chopsticks slowly raised her face and put it in her mouth. Zhou Mengyan sat on the sofa and watched her eat, imagining the way she would praise him later, and his lips couldn’t help but rise.
However, Ruan Yan just took a mouthful of noodles, frowned suddenly, and almost vomited:
“What is this……”
He suddenly froze, “What’s the matter?”
“This noodle is so horrible…” Ruan Yan took a sip of the soup unwillingly again, her face wrinkled suddenly, and she was crying horribly: “Meng Yan, where did you order takeaway from? It’s unpalatable, you must give him a bad review QwQ…”
Zhou Mengyan’s face turned black.
