"What's happening? What are you doing? Qian Fan asked as he came out of the kitchen.

Now I am doubting whether they were really cooking or busy doing something else.

Because this couple in front of me is very cheesy I must say. I don't know how to describe them.

Let's just say they are very sweet. They might give you cavities.

"Nothing, just me trying to steal your wife from you," I say. I don't get the chance to see them so often, so now that I have it I should use it completely to tease them.

"You can't do that." Qian Fan denied it.

Why not?

"That is not up to you to decide," I state.

"What do you say, Honey?" I hook my arm around Song Ci's neck.

"You won't choose her, right sweetie?" Qian Fan said dramatically.

"But I think I love her more." Song Ci retorted.

Woah. Okay, So she is getting more comfortable around me. That's a good thing. I was not expecting that honestly.

Even though she said that she clearly had stars in her eyes when she looked at him.

God this sweet couple. How did I end up eating dog food before I could even fill my stomach? That's unfair.

"You can't do this to me. You took my responsibility when you married me. You can't back down now." Qian Fan said cheekily.

'Cough..cough.' I choked on my saliva.

They are acting as if they are the only people in this room. I did not sign up for this.

"Would you guys stop, please? Don't you know that you can't show off in front of a single person?"

If you think they listened to me, you are wrong. They ignored me completely as if I wasn't in the room.

I can't, with them, so I look at the other light bulb.

"How are you so calm?" I ask Daiyu.

She had stopped playing by now

Daiyu shrugged her shoulders as if they act like this every time.

"I feel bad for you," I say.

"Don't worry, I am used to it already." She replies in understanding.

She must have witnessed this a lot.

"What's for dinner?" I ask, trying to change the atmosphere.

"Seafood." Song Ci announced.

Now Daiyu and I, both were jumping from excitement.

We love seafood. It's good that they are compensating me with good food after torturing me like this.

I help them set up the table. And by help I mean I set up the table while they try to do so in between their flirting.

I want to tell them that I regret coming here. Is this how a host treats their guests?

I wanted to reprimand them but after I thought about the food I changed my mind.

I know that they act themselves around me and they won't do it if it were some other person. A part of me feels good that they think of me like that even though I don't know what I did to deserve all that.

Did I mention Song Ci is a great cook? She can be compared to those chefs from seven-star hotels. I am not kidding.

I actually suggested that she should apply for it, but she refuses every time.

I know that she feels insecure, but there's no need to feel that way. Still,l can't force something.

"Let's dig in," I announced because I had to. Otherwise, you can't expect them to see me, and I am hungry.

I think it's true when people say that love is blind, and now I have witnessed it personally. They ignored their guest like I don't exist.

Anyway, the only good thing happening right now is me enjoying my fried shrimp.

"This is so amazing. How did you make thi.." I halt when I see them putting food on each other's plates and being all love doves.

I should not have looked up.

I turned to Qian Daiyu who was sitting beside me and said "Baby let me teach you something."

"What?" She asks, and for a moment I think whether it's a little early to let her be aware of the situation.

"Do you know what we are doing right now?" I ask.

"Aren't we eating? She replies innocently.

"We are doing one more thing besides eating." I ask her to come closer so that I can whisper "We are third wheeling."

"What does that mean?" She asks in confusion.

"When a couple is being lovey-dovey, and it looks like they are in their own world, then anyone who is there except them would feel like they should not be there interrupting the scene. They would be the third wheels, which were not required there."

"Ooh.." She nodded in realization.

"Then, last time when you said we are two big light bulbs, does that also mean the same thing?" She suddenly asks.

"Yes." I nod my head frantically.

"You are right. That's exactly what it means. Wow! You are so smart. Can you give a little bit of your brain to me?" I say. She actually understood my explanation. Someone give me a trophy.

"We can still hear you." Qian Fan says.

It was not like we went to some other room to gossip about him. We were sitting at the dining table, and of course, he could hear us.

I wanted to roll my eyes at that but held myself back.

"I thought you were so busy to do that," I say sarcastically.

"Why are you teaching her all that?" He asks.

What? I don't think it was bad to teach her all that.

"So that she knows what that feeling is called when you act like that in front of her." I shrug my shoulders.

I don't think I should be happy about it but the ambiguous atmosphere was broken, and we ate the meal like a family of four.

I think I am already feeling sleepy.

Yay, I am going to sleep for the whole week.

I want to jump at that thought.

Qian Fan asked me to come to his study to discuss something.

"Why did you call me last night?" Qian Fan asked.

I am shocked. I thought I convinced him earlier today but I should have known all along.

That was such a lame excuse. I should have come up with something better.

"I told you it was nothing," I state calmly.

"Do you think I would believe that? Am I that dumb in your eyes?"

I wanted to nod my head against this statement but I restrained myself.

He might not be that smart but he is not dumb either, and my excuse was not convincing at all. He also had been dealing with all kinds of people, and no matter how dumb you are you will understand something here and there after meeting all kinds of unreasonable people.

"Spill the truth. I don't think the Su Li whom I know would call someone in the middle of the night if it wasn't something important. "

Okay So now I don't have any options left, I guess.

I tell him the whole story. How I stupidly went to see a car so late in the night and how the owner didn't even appreciate it. Of course, I excluded the porridge part, and how he was being a jerk.

Though his assistant tried his best to thank me. He got a good assistant.

"Are you sure he told the truth?" Qian Fan asked after listening to the whole story.

"About what?" I ask puzzledly because he is asking that question as if Qin Feng would be deceiving me.

"His name." He clears my doubt.

He told his name was Qin Feng after all, not many people have seen the real face of Qin Feng including me so I can understand why he thinks that.

Qin Feng is one of the wealthiest and could be considered as one of the most powerful people in the country.

From what I could understand he told the truth because he only told his name when he thought that if one day I would think of extorting some money from him, I could look for him and he would return the favor.

Even though he was very reluctant he wouldn't turn down a reasonable request of mine.

As for how I assumed his thoughts, that's because they were written all over his face.

I had to often understand other people's preferences without irritating them, and I had been doing that for so long now that I could mostly understand what they were thinking by their expressions.

"He was telling the truth," I explained why he told me his name in the first place.

"Indeed, why would someone like him try to associate with people like us." Qian Fan said.

I nod my head. All I want right now is to end this topic.

I go home after bidding them goodbye and promising my little baby that I would go watch a movie with her whenever I would be free.
