MSGVB Chapter 24

"I'll be with you, sir."

Translator: Hua


Assistant Xiao Tang said that he still had something to do, and then he hurriedly left.

 

Jing Xun walked him out to the door and enthusiastically helped him catch the elevator.

 

After he left, he turned around and found out that Shen Yijin had also followed him, and was standing behind him.

   

Jing Xun tilted his head slightly: “Sir?”

   

He didn’t understand why Shen Yijin also came out.

   

But Shen Yijin didn’t explain. Seeing that Xiao Tang was gone, he turned back to their home and said to Jing Xun, “What does Xiao Xun want to eat? For the main dish, I can make ribs or steak.”

   

Jing Xun wanted to eat many things.

 

After they returned to their place, he glanced at the vegetables and meat that Xiao Tang had bought, and said, “Then make ribs, and soup?”

   

“Okay.” After saying that, Shen Yijin really wrapped an apron around himself and went into the kitchen.

   

Jing Xun never dreamed that he could see Mr. villain so…close to life.

   

Someone like Shen Yijin, even wearing an apron, was of course also domineering. After all, he still had no expression on his upright and handsome face. He looked very serious.

 

However, the home clothes and worldly atmosphere undoubtedly gave him a layer of soft light, as if the strongest and warmest in the world were merged together. The cold blade was wrapped and hidden, but the sir who worked in the kitchen was still impressive, making people couldn’t move their eyes away from him.

 

Jing Xun asked: “Sir, do you need my help?”

   

Although he couldn’t cook, Jing Xun thought he could do simple tasks such as washing vegetables.

   

But Shen Yijin said, “There is no need.”

   

“Xiao Xun should go and play. I’ll call you when I’m done.”

   

Jing Xun: “Ok”

   

Having said that, Jing Xun did not go to play either, but stood obediently and watched Shen Yijin working around the kitchen.

   

Mr. Long Legs started to do things in a very organized manner. Jing Xun saw that he first put the vegetables he needed into the vegetable washing machine to wash, and took advantage of this time to wash and cook rice. After the vegetables were washed, he took them out and then put the meat into the machine to wash.

 

The meat was washed for a long time. This step was necessary in order to remove the acid. During this period, Shen Yijin cut all the vegetables into the shape he needed. He stood there, his normally straight and slender back was slightly bent at this moment, but it didn’t affect his big boss aura.

   

He saw his slender fingers clinging to a cooking knife, his eyes focused, and his movements were skilled.  

 

Jing Xun couldn’t help but remember what Xiao Tang told him just now, that Shen Yijin went abroad to study very early.

   

Living outside was all about self-reliance.

   

How early was “early”? Wasn’t he the eldest young master of the Shen family? He still had to cook for himself?

  

Because of the competition, Jing Xun had many contacts with the students who studied abroad, and he had also learned a little bit about their lives.

Although the vast majority of the students studying abroad were depending on themselves, thinking of Shen Bohan who had followers tagging along everywhere, Jing Xun didn’t think that the Shen family lacked the financial resources. They should have hired a better host family for Shen Yijin. 

  

But why did they……

   

There was also Shen Yijin’s illness.

  

 When did he get the illness? Did his family know…

   

Recalling the plot, Jing Xun found out that he didn’t know anything except knowing that Shen Yijin and Shen Bohan were half-brothers, and that Shen Yijin’s father remarried Shen Bohan’s mother…..

   

“Xiao Xun?”

  

“En?”

   

“What are you thinking about?”

   

Jing Xun realized that he got distracted again. He hurriedly said, “It’s nothing.”

  

Shen Yijin said: “Why don’t you play games?”

   

Jing Xun: “Ah…”

   

Jing Xun moved his body a little, trying to hide himself behind the pillars next to the kitchen to prevent Shen Yijin from being distracted by noticing himself.

   

He said, “I want to see if you….. have anything that needs my help.”

   

Shen Yijin turned back and took a look at him, seeing that the young man still showed only his handsome face, and his body was hidden in the corner out of his field of vision…

  

 The habitually tightened lips couldn’t help but stretch a curve. He said, “Then come and help me tie the apron.”

 

Jing Xun: “Okay!”

  

Jing Xun hurriedly stepped into the kitchen. He found out that the string behind Shen Yijin’s apron was indeed loose. It might not be fastened in the first place. 

   

At this moment, Shen Yijin was handling the freshly washed spare ribs, his hands were stained with grease.

  

Besides, when handling the ingredients, it was indeed inconvenient to touch other things…Jing Xun didn’t think too much, so he stretched out his hand and tried to tie up Shen Yijin’s apron again.

 

But coincidentally, a scene of dog’s blood actually happened. Jing Xun stretched out his fingers to touch the knot that Shen Yijin had tied before. Then, the knot that was slightly loosened……completely loosened up with his touch.

  

 The two long strings drooped down, even the apron was separated from Shen Yijin….

   

Jing Xun: “Ah ah ah, sorry sir…”

  

He had never thought that he was such a kitchen idiot. He couldn’t even tie a small strap.

   

At this moment, Jing Xun didn’t care about anything else. He immediately bent forward to touch the two straps.

   

He completely didn’t notice that his front was almost pressed against Shen Yijin’s back and waist, their posture looked as if he was sticking up from behind to give Shen Yijin a bear hug.

   

“……”

 

The previous sound of cutting vegetables stopped. Shen Yijin seemed to have paused all his actions at this moment.

   

After retrieving the two straps, Jing Xun realized that the distance between himself and Mr. seemed to be too close.

  

Ah ah ah.

   

Jingxun couldn’t tell what kind of mood he had when he was tying the apron for Shen Yijin.   

 

When he raised his head again, the temperature on his face was already too high.

   

At a glance, all he could see was Shen Yijin’s tall and wide back, just like a mountain, giving a sense of stability and reliability…..it made people want to bury their heads on it.

   

“Xiao Xun.”

   

With the resounding sound of cutting vegetables, Shen Yijin called him again.

   

It was probably his first time standing behind Shen Yijin at such a close distance. Jing Xun felt that his voice was low and sexy.

  

Jing Xun: “…Hm?”

   

“Go and play.” Shen Yijin said.

   

“Oh… OK.”

   

The other party didn’t say much, Jing Xun also didn’t dare to linger around, so he had to go back obediently and continue playing with the game console.

   

There were both single and double games on consoles. Jing Xun decided to try all of them to see which one was suitable for two people to play together.

   

Thinking about the calm and abstinent Mr. villain playing games with him… Jing Xun thought that the image was pretty good.

 

About an hour later, the fragrant scent from the kitchen had been roaming in the living room for a long time, then Jing Xun heard Shen Yijin asking him to eat.

  

Shen Yijin made sweet and sour pork ribs, beef and radish soup, besides, he also stir fried a dish of green vegetables.

  

Jing Xun stood obediently and waited for the other person to scoop the food out of the pot. He was responsible for serving it, and when the food was ready, he sat at the table and waited for Shen Yijin.

   

Shen Yijin took off his apron and hung it back to its original position neatly. He washed his hands again, and then sat down opposite to Jing Xun.

   

Seeing that Jing Xun was still looking up at him, he couldn’t help saying: “Try it, my craft.”

   

After saying that he took the initiative to clip Jing Xun a piece of ribs, and then served him a bowl of soup.

   

The ribs were braised very well and tasted very flavorful.    

 

Jing Xun didn’t know how the other party did it in a short period of time, but it was really delicious, and he couldn’t help giving a thumbs up to Shen Yijin.

   

“Sir, you are amazing, you can do everything!”

  

Shen Yijin had always heard a lot of compliments, but this time he gently raised the corner of his lips and said, “If you like it, eat more.”

   

“Okay.” After saying that, Jing Xun tasted the soup, and then couldn’t help showing a more shocked expression.

All the flavor of the beef was stewed into the radish and the soup, and the meat was also tender.

   

Jing Xun was a person who often ate in the school cafeteria. This dish was also common, but it was the first time he tasted such a delicious beef soup.

  

 Jing Xun was really convinced this time, he didn’t expect Shen Yijin to have such an ability.

   

But Shen Yijin said, “I was a little hasty this time, the heat was not enough. If Xiao Xun wants to eat it next time, you can tell me in advance.”

   

Jing Xun asked: “…Can you keep cooking for me, sir?”

  

“En.”

   

Shen Yijin said, “Of course.”

 

His tone was entirely natural. 

  

…..Although he knew the other party said this because he was his fiancé, nonetheless Jing Xun still smiled.

   

This was enough for him.

   

He smiled and said, “Okay, I will remember it.”

   

Maybe it was because he had lived here for two days, there was more communication between the two, or maybe because of the situation last night…Jing Xun always felt that he and Shen Yijin would be less rigid when getting along.

   

At least, it was not like the last time when two people were eating western food together. They didn’t dare to say anything, and didn’t dare to make any movement.

   

Now, he even dared to ask the other person during meal time: “Sir, do you know how to cook all kinds of dishes? Are you better at Chinese or Western food?”

 

Jing Xun did not forget that the other party had asked him if he wanted to eat ribs or steak.   

 

Chen Yijin was still his usual self. He answered each questions one by one, with seriousness: “I don’t know how to cook all kinds of dishes, I only know a little of everything. I’m more skilled at making fast food.”

  

 Jing Xun: “?”

  

Shen Yijin: “Sandwiches and the like.”

  

 Jing Xun: “……”

  

Well, if someone else said this, it would be a cold joke.

   

But Shen Yijin……

 

sir didn’t know how to crack a joke.

  

Jing Xun suddenly felt a little uncomfortable… To be good at making sandwiches meant that he was used to eating fast food.

   

It was hard to imagine Shen Yijin, a hard-hearted and sophisticated person eating fast food every day…

   

He asked Shen Yijin again: “So how long had Mr. stayed abroad?”

   

Unexpectedly, Shen Yijin listened and suddenly looked up at him.

  

…At first glance, Jing Xun couldn’t help but feel surprised when he met the pale peach blossom eyes, thinking that this was not a question he should ask.

   

But Shen Yijin still answered quickly.

  

 It was just that this time the answer was not so accurate.

   

Shen Yijin said, “I can’t remember clearly.”

   

“It should be about ten years.”

 

Jing Xun: “…oh.”

   

On the surface, he calmly replied but the thought in his heart was — Oh? ?

  

Shen Yijin was only 26 years old this year. He returned to China for two years, so he was 24 years old before returning.

   

Pushing forward another ten years….this meant he had been living abroad since he was an adolescent? ?

   

After a long period of time, you are also likely to be a person1He meant growing up like a normal person with normal personality.???

   

No wonder Mr. Big Brother always looked so cold and couldn’t open up to strangers.

   

He was studying abroad when he was an adolescent, alone in a foreign country. He struggled by himself and was also not in a good state…..

   

How could you expect him to be hot2This could be a pun or a joke. So normally Shen Yijin was a cold person. Growing up in a harsh environment, how could you expect him to be a hot person?(Which meant the opposite of his cold self). I hope this make sense lol.!

   

Jing Xun couldn’t help but feel curious again. Did his family know what happened to him?

   

But he was worried that Shen Yijin would find it strange—at least Jing Xun, who was an abandoned infant, was sensitive to topics about his family.

  

He was worried that Shen Yijin’s family was not so harmonious. In order to avoid any unhappy topics, Jing Xun never asked anything about the other party’s past in the second half of the meal.

   

He still talked and laughed while eating.

  

Unknowingly, the topic returned to the direction of science and technology that both of them were very interested in.

   

This meal took a surprisingly long time.

   

After eating, Shen Yijin began to clean up the table.

   

Jing Xun also quickly got up to help him with the cleaning.

   

There was also a large dishwasher in the kitchen, pots and pans could be put in, and they didn’t need to wash the dishes by hands.

   

But the table and used gas stove should be cleaned briefly.

   

Shen Yijin said: “Xiao Xun, go and play, I’ll do it.”

   

“No, no, no.” Jing Xun refused to leave this time.

   

Even if he didn’t know how to cook, he could still clean up the table.

 

 Not to mention……

   

While Shen Yijin was washing the rag, Jing Xun also took another rag and went to wash it with him.

   

The kitchen was very large and the sink was also very wide, so two people could work together.

   

Jing Xun stood beside Shen Yijin and turned on the faucet. When the water column poured out, he said softly, “I will accompany you.”

   

Feeling the other person looking down at him, Jing Xun raised his head naturally.

   

Facing the other party’s deep black eyes, Jing Xun’s eyebrows were soft, and his eyes were firm.

   

He smiled softly: “I’ll be with you, sir.”
