Li Zhenruo had heard of this You Bo person in the past, but the two of them had never met. So far, he gave Li Zhenruo the feeling of being too hostile. If it were in the past, even if he didn’t like this person, Li Zhenruo would have to say a few polite words to him and hope to become friends. However, Li Zhenruo now felt that these things were not important.
He just said in a somewhat cold manner, “Boss You, is there something wrong?”
The taxi driver hadn’t driven yet. He glanced in the rearview mirror and asked, “Where to?”
You Bo put an arm on Li Zhenruo’s shoulder, “Would you do me the honour to invite you to a meal?”
Li Zhenruo grabbed his arm and pushed it away, “I’m just a little white face, I have no face to honour you.”
His attitude was very rude, and he believed that You Bo was already unhappy at this time. However, You Bo did not show it on his face, but asked, “I heard that you are Luo Fei’s cousin?”
Li Zhenruo did not deny it, and simply pushed the boat along and said, “You are not afraid of offending Luo Fei?”
You Bo laughed and said, “Li Zhenran is not afraid of offending Luo Fei? Even he dared to sleep with his cousin? It seems that Luo Fei didn’t take it to heart.”
The taxi driver became impatient at this time, and honked his horn to urge, “Where are you going? Hurry up!”
You Bo suddenly turned cold and said in a deep voice, “What?”
The driver turned his head to look at him as if he didn’t think it would be easy to mess with You Bo and immediately fell silent.
Li Zhenruo looked at the driver, then turned to look at You Bo, and said calmly, “Luo Fei doesn’t take it seriously, but I advise you not to try it. The conflict was between you and Li Zhenzi, but Ran ge said that his brother was at fault first. He doesn’t want to intervene, and it’s totally unnecessary for you to provoke me. I don’t know if Boss You is doing this just for the sake of novelty or just trying to cross with the Li family, but I think it’s meaningless. The conflict between you and Li Zhenzi is resolved. It’s over, there’s really no need to treat the entire Li family as your enemy, and there’s no need to offend Ran ge and my cousin for me, what do you think?”
You Bo had been silent while listening to him, but at this time he looked at him with interest, “You are really hell-bent on Li Zhenran. A mouthful for Ran ge.”
Li Zhenruo said, “Yes, so you should understand how sincerely I am advising you and not wanting to make the situation unmanageable.”
You Bo hummed at this time, “Who said I was interested in you?”
Li Zhenruo patted his chest quickly, “I’ll just say that I’m thinking too much, how could someone with such a high taste like Boss You like me that is a man? It’s my shamelessness to put gold on my face that delayed Boss You, I’m really sorry. If I have a chance in the future, I’ll let Ran ge invite Boss You to dinner, okay? Today I’m still in a hurry, I have to go back and cook for Ran ge.”
You Bo watched him silently for a while, then slowly opened the door to get out of the car, but he still pressed his hand on the door and said to Li Zhenruo, “Then I’ll wait for your Ran ge to invite me to this meal.”
Li Zhenruo smiled and said, “Definitely.”
The moment the door was closed, Li Zhenruo’s face sank, and he said to the driver, “Drive.”
He sat in the back seat and swore a few words in a sullen voice. He was thinking about whether Yubo was really going to give the Li family a hard time or whether he was attracted to him. After he thought about it, Li Zhenruo felt that both options were possible, and he couldn’t help but complain more about Li Zhenzi.
It was just that it wasn’t a lie that he said he wanted to go back to cook for Li Zhenran. He did buy some food in the supermarket and planned to go back to cook hotpot with Li Zhenran at night.
The two of them didn’t usually cook by themselves, so there were no ingredients and seasonings in the apartment, only some pots and pans. If he wanted to make a meal himself, the easiest way was a hotpot. Buy hotpot ingredients and food, go back and put it in the pot and pour water to boil. Li Zhenruo thought it was very simple.
When he got home, Li Zhenran was watering the flowers on the balcony. He didn’t even change his pyjamas, and he didn’t go out all day.
Li Zhenruo put the bag at the door, walked over and hugged Li Zhenran from behind, and said, “How about eating hot pot tonight?”
Li Zhenran put down the watering kettle, pressed it on the back of his hand, and said, “Okay.”
He carried a bag of things into the kitchen. Li Zhenran took out the pot in the cabinet and cleaned it. He watched Li Zhenruo take out the vegetables in the bag and turn them over and over.
So he took a kitchen knife and handed it to Li Zhenruo, “It’s useless for you to look at it, you have to cut it, and remember to wash it first.”
Li Zhenruo took the kitchen knife and said with a straight face, “I can’t do it.”
Li Zhenran glanced at him, “Leave it to me.”
Li Zhenruo could only wash the vegetables and put them on the cutting board. After a while, he saw Li Zhenran put the cleaned induction cooker and soup pot on the dining table outside, and then came back and picked up the kitchen knife to take the cleaned vegetables and cut them carefully.
Li Zhenran was not skilled at this too, but it looked like it was going well.
Li Zhenruo had nothing to do. So he stood beside Li Zhenran, suddenly stretched out his hand to wrap his waist and blew a breath at his ear.
Li Zhenran’s expression did not change, but his head turned slightly.
He knew that Li Zhenran’s ears were sensitive, so he blew at him again, and then took his earlobe and bit it lightly.
Li Zhenran turned to look at him, “Do you still want to eat hotpot?”
Li Zhenruo pointed at his ear and whispered, “I met You Bo today.”
Li Zhenran was cutting potatoes. After hearing this sentence, the kitchen knife cut down heavily against the vegetable board and rattled. He asked in a deep voice, “Did he provoke you?”
Li Zhenruo pinched his ear with his fingers and rubbed it hard a few times. He rubbed Li Zhenran’s ear red, and said, “He wanted to provoke me, but I didn’t go along. Later, I told him that I would ask you to invite him to dinner another day.”
Li Zhenran stopped and was quiet for a few seconds. He then said, “That’s a good offer.”
“Huh?” Li Zhenruo looked at him in surprise, “Do you really have this plan?”
Li Zhenran gently peeled off the potato slices that were stuck to the kitchen knife, “Invite him to a meal and ask Li Zhenzi to apologize to him along the way, see what he really wants, put this matter to an end, but also let him know that he should not have any thoughts about you. “
Li Zhenruo said, “You keep saying that you don’t care about Li Zhenzi, but you still have to help him out.”
Li Zhenran put the sliced potatoes on a plate, took the washed green bamboo shoots, and said to Li Zhenruo, “Because I will have to clean up Li Zhentai after waiting, I don’t want the third child to have other troubles at this time. It was Li Zhentai who poked it out, and I don’t want to see him do what he wants.”
Li Zhenruo thought to himself, didn’t you just want to take the opportunity to win over Li Zhenzi? But he just thought about it and didn’t say it.
The taste of hotpot that night was average. Li Zhenruo didn’t know exactly the difference between it and a hotpot restaurant, so he felt that it was not so fragrant. After eating the hotpot, there was still a lot of smell in the house, so he had to open the doors and windows to air out the smell.
Li Zhenran went to the balcony to stay and smoked a cigarette.
After Li Zhenruo came out of the shower, he wrapped his arms around his waist, pressed him on the balcony, bit his ears, and said vaguely, “Okay, now it’s my turn.”
The time to invite You Bo to a meal was set in three days.
Li Zhenzi said that he could not walk with his legs, and Li Zhenran told him to let him come in a wheelchair.
The meal was arranged in a restaurant in the urban area. The private room was quite large but not very crowded.
Li Zhenran and Li Zhenruo came first as the host, and Li Zhenzi really let Su Yao push him in with a wheelchair. A chair was removed directly from the round table, leaving Li Zhenzi to eat in a wheelchair.
Li Zhenzi didn’t look very happy. He was smoking a cigarette and swearing, “What the hell!”
At first, he felt that he was wrong, and he was somewhat embarrassed to meet You Bo, but now he had been ruthlessly fixed out, and his temper had risen.
Li Zhenruo sneered, “Seducing someone’s wife, what the hell is up with you?”
Li Zhenzi pointed his cigarette at him, “You know shit, shut up!”
As soon as he finished speaking, the door of the private room was opened from the outside, You Bo was wearing a long trench coat, and seemed to walk with the wind. With a strange smile on his face, he said to Li Zhenran who stood up, “Second Young Master Li, how are you?”
Li Zhenran smiled, “Boss You. Welcome.”
You Bo took off his trench coat, and the waiter helped him hang it on the hanger.
He walked towards the dining table, and when he passed by Li Zhenruo, he suddenly reached out and touched Li Zhenruo’s face.
Li Zhenruo reacted quickly, turned his head to avoid it, and then frowned slightly and looked at You Bo.
You Bo didn’t expect him to react so quickly, but he just smiled and walked to his seat and sat down.
Li Zhenran withdrew the sharp gaze just now and said to You Bo, “Boss You, I don’t like to talk nonsense, the purpose of inviting you here today is for that little grudge between my brother and you, and I want to take this opportunity to make the third child apologizes to you. He caused the disaster by himself, and Boss You beat him up. He is still in a wheelchair and admitted his wrongdoings. However, I didn’t know what else Boss You wants?”
You Bo laughed, leaned back on the back of the chair, didn’t say anything, and just smoked a cigarette. He put the cigarette to his mouth but didn’t light it.
Li Zhenran glanced at Li Zhenzi.
Li Zhenzi took a deep breath as if to vent all his frustration, he grabbed the lighter on the table, because it was inconvenient to move the wheelchair, so he leaned forward with a lot of effort to help You Bo light a cigarette.
You Bo looked at him with a half-smile, and his body remained motionless. After letting Li Zhenzi help him light the cigarette, he suddenly pressed the burning cigarette butt on Li Zhenzi’s hand before he could take it back.
Li Zhenzi felt pain in his hand, and quickly threw his hand away. The lighter fell to the ground at once, and he almost fell.
Su Yao responded quickly, stood up and supported Li Zhenzi, and stared at You Bo angrily.
Li Zhenzi swore, “Motherfvcker.”
You Bo tilted his head on purpose and said, “What did you say? I didn’t get it. Say it again.”
Li Zhenran said at this time, “Boss You, don’t go too far.”
Before You Bo’s cigarette was extinguished, he turned his head to face Li Zhenran, took a slow puff and said, “Today, Second Young Master Li is so sincere, I might as well say a few words from my heart. Just now you felt painful, right? But how does it compare to having someone else fvck your wife?”
After he said this, he flicked the soot, but his eyes turned to Li Zhenruo.
Li Zhenzi suppressed his anger and said, “Boss You, I’m not being kind in this matter, but as far as I know, you’ve been messing around outside for a long time. Lisa has always been resentful, but she was just dragging and didn’t get a divorce.”
You Bo looked at him coldly, “As long as we are not divorced, she is my wife. We will solve things between the couple ourselves, but you dare to cuckold me. You must think about how to bear the consequences.”
Li Zhenzi’s scalded hand was still hurting. He reached out to hold the water glass on the table and said, “Then what do you want? If you have something to say, we will solve it once and for all.”
You Bo raised one leg on the other, leaned back and took a few puffs of cigarettes, and said, “I thought about it, I don’t feel relieved when I beat you, and I don’t want to cause so much trouble if I kill you. You’d better put your wife to sleep with me a few times.”
Li Zhenzi said angrily, “I don’t have a wife.”
You Bo said, “Yeah, you don’t have a wife. I heard that you have a girlfriend, and after a look, she was quite to my liking, so I invited her over to sit down today.”
This time, not only Li Zhenzi, but even Li Zhenruo changed his face. Immediately after that the door was opened from the outside, only to reveal Yu Bingwei standing at the door, looking anxiously at the few people in the private room.
