Ch29 – Cake

“Have you seen enough? Does it look good?” Ye Shi looked at Mu Chen who was poking his head out and asked in a cold voice, puffing out his cheeks.

Mu Chen shrank back, looked at Ye Shi, and said with an apologetic smile, “There’s nothing to see, I’m just taking a casual look.” 

Ye Shi looked down from the window and gave Mu Chen a cross look, “Zhuang Yu is down there.
If you feel distressed, you can call him up.”

Mu Chen laughed, “What’s there to be distressed about.”



Ye Shi hummed softly, “Empty words.”

Ye Shi brooded over it a lot last night, tossing and turning, and finally decided that Mu Chen’s gift of a VIP card to him was ill-intentioned.
He wasn’t sure what his ulterior motive was yet so he decided to adopt a wait-and-see approach. 

Looking at Ye Shi, Mu Chen said, “By the way, I have something for you.”


“What is it?” Ye Shi asked, looking askance at him.

Mu Chen took out a cake from his spatial ring and handed it to Ye Shi, saying, “Here you are.”

As soon as the cake was taken out, a sweet fragrance wafted out.
Ye Shi looked at the exquisitely shaped cake and blinked curiously, his eyes emitting a strange glow.


“This is a cake I made by chance after studying a few ancient books.
I call it a ‘cake’.
I made it especially for you to eat.” Mu Chen said to Ye Shi with an earnest expression.

Ye Shi’s eyes looked straight at Mu Chen, full of longing and unclear meaning.

Mu Chen looked at him, “What’s wrong?”


Ye Shi didn’t say anything but just stared straight at him with his eyes wide open. 

Mu Chen suddenly realized something and frowned, saying, “Are you worried that I put something in it?”

Ye Shi tilted his head but remained silent.
When Ye Shi was at home, several of his aunts had tried to frame him repeatedly, making him live in world of schemes and deceptions.

When he was a child, Ye Shi accidentally ate a bowl of sweet soup that had been poisoned and, as a result, he almost didn’t recover.
Since then, Ye Shi has become more and more cautious.
If not for this, Ye Shi would not be alive now.

The corners of Mu Chen’s mouth twitched and he secretly thought, “How distrustful can you be? 

“I’ll check it for you.” Mu Chen dug a spoonful of cake into his mouth.

Ye Shi watched Mu Chen take a bite, snatched the spoon, and took a big bite, “Yummy, yummy, it’s really good ……”

Mu Chen: “……”

Ye Shi’s two cheeks were bulging, looking like a chipmunk.
Mu Chen raised his eyebrows as he looked at Ye Shi’s eating face. 

As he did not believe that Mu Chen would really like him, Ye Shi simply smashed the broken jar and did not have any concern for his image.

Mu Chen looked at Ye Shi with interest, resting his chin on his palm.
He stretched out his hand to smooth Ye Shi’s back and said, “Slow down, don’t choke.”


Ye Shi choked.
Mu Chen patted Ye Shi’s shoulder and said, “Are you alright?”

Ye Shi lowered his head and thought, “If Mu Chen had given him a disdainful and contemptuous look, he would have glared back at him fiercely.
However, the way Mu Chen looked at him left Ye Shi at a loss. 

Mu Chen looked at Ye Shi’s blushing face and felt deeply amused.

Ye Shi looked at Mu Chen’s smiling expression and shot him a fierce glare.

Mu Chen smiled good-naturedly, with a tolerant look on his face, and Ye Shi was embarrassed to keep glaring at him.

Knowing that Ye Shi had a good appetite, Mu Chen deliberately made the cake into a 12-inch one.
Looking at Ye Shi’s greedy face, it seems it was still not enough. 

“Is it good?” Mu Chen asked.

Ye Shi nodded, “Delicious.”

“If you like it, I’ll make it for you next time.” Mu Chen said earnestly.

“Did you really make it?” Ye Shi didn’t believe he was saying the truth. 

Mu Chen nodded, “Of course, I learned how to handle the ingredients from my family’s spiritual chef, and he praised me for being a quick learner and having the talent of a spiritual chef.”

“Is that so?” Ye Shi said, incredulous.

“Of course.” Mu Chen said.

Ye Shi looked at Mu Chen in confusion, “But why do you treat me so well?” 

Mu Chen took it for granted, flashed a bright smile at Ye Shi, and said, “Because I like you!”

Ye Shi’s heart trembled, but he did not dare to believe Mu Chen’s words.
