"If I come there, you won't be able to work, Mr. Lu for what you have skipped your meal," Jiang Yuyan said.
"If you come here, I won't mind skipping my work, as I might get a nice treat in exchange for it."
'Too much dog food for the poor soul, boss' Xiao Min thought as he couldn't handle his boss's bold words. He piled up the documents on the center table in a hurry. "I will bring lunch."
Lu Qiang nodded and Xiao Min left.
Jiang Yuyan heard Xiao Min and asked, "Is Xiao Min there?"
"He was. He left to get lunch for me as he could see his boss's boss is angry."
"How can you flirt with me in front of him?"
"When it comes to my wife, I don't care about others. Moreover, Xiao Min has known me since we were kids, and he has been with me since I joined Lu Corporation. He knows everything about me so let this one also add to that everything."
"What a cruel boss that single soul has got!" Jiang Yuyan said, laughing a little.
"Agree, but it might inspire him to get a partner for him."
After talking for a while, they hung up the call and Xiao Min entered the office with the tray having lunch for Lu Qiang in it."
Keeping it at the centre table in front of the couch, Xiao Min opened the containers for Lu Qiang, and he moved to the main worktable in the office to go through the work.
"Are you planning to starve yourself and put the blame on me if you fall sick, Xiao Min?" Lu Qiang asked, looking at the food.
Xiao Min, who was about to sit in the chair around the worktable, stopped. "N-No, boss. Once you finish, I will go out to have lunch." Xiao Min always waited if his boss needed anything.
"Are you taking your role of being my office-wife seriously that you want to look after me when I am eating and you are starving?" Lu Qiang asked, putting food in an empty dish.
"Sorry, boss! I will go have something."
"No need to go out. Eat with me as what you brought is more than enough for two people. I wonder if you think my stomach has a valley inside for you to bring so much food every time."
Xiao Min didn't know how to reply to him. It was always like this that no one could cross the sarcastic remarks from Lu Qiang as he was skilled in it. Xiao Min was used to it, but today instead of a few words, his boss talked more. He wondered if it was the effect of Mrs. Lu.
"I will get a dish for myself." Saying, Xiao Min went to the kitchen in the lounge as there was only one dish he brought for Lu Qiang along with the food.
As he returned, Lu Qiang put the dish filled with food on the centre table. "Have it."
Saying, Lu Qiang put forward his hands, asking him to pass the empty dish in Xiao Min's hands to pass it to him.
Xiao Min did what he said and sat on the table quietly, looking at the dish on the centre table which had served for him by his boss, the great President of the Lu Corporation.
"Don't be so overwhelmed Xiao Min. Staring at the food won't make it to enter your stomach." Lu Qiang said, filling the other dish with food.
Though Lu Qiang never said or showed it, Xiao Min was among those people which were important in his life. He could trust him blindly and he was thankful towards him for being with him for so long and doing his work the best way possible to make it less difficult for Lu Qiang. His dedication towards Lu Qiang was like the most dedicated and trustable servant of the King in the ancient times where King could trust no one but that servant who dedicated his life for his king.
That day Lu Qiang worked till late and it took him time to go back home but he made sure to go back before dinner while Jiang Yuyan spent her time with Lu Lijun, Lu Bao and Lu Lian and then while studying what was she going to study in the next semester.
In the bedroom, after dinner..
"How was your day?" Lu Qiang asked. Sitting in a bed while resting at the headboard.
"It was good except for the thing I missed you," Jiang Yuyan replied while changing her clothes to night dress.
Lu Qiang smiled to get this reply. "Tomorrow, I am leaving for country Z for a few days."
She didn't look happy hearing it and asked, "How many days?"
"Might be a week."
She exclaimed, "A week!"
"You can come with me but I would be busy all the time."
"I can't as the next semester will start next week and I have to prepare a few things before it."
"Hmm!" Lu Qiang was aware of it but he still asked her if she can come with him as he felt she might feel bad for leaving her alone for a week just after two weeks of their wedding. He got the reply he expected to get it from her.
"As I will be away for a week, should I make up for it tonight or should I make up for it once I am back?" Lu Qiang asked, his eyes showing his evil intentions towards his woman.
"I won't mind if you make up for it twice," said Jiang Yuyan teasingly and climbing in the bed to move towards him, crawling from one end of the bed to where he was sitting at the other side of it.
As she went closer to him, he pulled her towards him, making her half upper body to rest on his. "Greedy woman!"
"When the man is like you, which woman in the world won't act greedy," she replied, smiling teasingly and looking into his pitch black eyes which were showing the signs of him being ready to devour her.
