Chapter 1392: Come Grocery Shopping With Me
Ning Shu returned to her room.
The next morning, Ning Shu got up to prepare breakfast for Wang Bo.
Last night, Wang Bo hadn’t been able to sleep well on the uncomfortable sofa and so his facial color was poor when he woke up this morning.
The door to his bedroom remained locked and didn’t open even once the entire night.
After getting up from the sofa, Wang Bo went to his bedroom door and knocked hard. But even after knocking for quite some time, Cai Anqi still didn’t open the door.
Wang Bo became more and more upset as he kept knocking.
“Why are you banging on the door so early in the morning?” Cai Anqi angrily snapped at Wang Bo as she opened the door.
Cai Anqi stood at the door in her lacy pajamas. Her hair was messy and the straps of her pajamas were almost falling off her arms, exposing a large part of her chest.
Seeing Cai Anqi’s appearance, Wang Bo was subdued and didn’t ask why she had taken so long to open the door. He instead said, “I have to get dressed for work.”
When Wang Bo went into the bedroom, he saw snack bags, coke bottles, and debris covering the floor. It made the room look very messy.
Without comment, he went to take a bath and change his clothes. After getting dressed, Wang Bo looked at Cai Anqi, who was still lying on the bed, and said, “It’s time for breakfast.”
Cai Anqi had been starving all night and the snacks couldn’t really sate her hunger so she perked up at the mention of breakfast. She didn’t act stubborn anymore and headed out of the bedroom to the table.
For breakfast, Ning Shu had gone out to buy steamed stuffed buns and soymilk. Cai Anqi picked up the chopsticks as soon as she sat down to eat the steamed stuffed buns. It seemed like she had been starved quite badly last night.
Ning Shu didn’t say anything. Wang Bo sat next to Cai Anqi and ate breakfast quietly.
After he finished eating, he said, “I’m going to work.”
Cai Anqi had a bun in her mouth and didn’t even look up as she just waved at Wang Bo.
Wang Bo frowned, seeming slightly dissatisfied with Cai Anqi’s behavior. But he was already running late for work so he could only leave without saying anything.
Ning Shu saw that Wang Bo seemed unhappy as he was leaving, but she didn’t say anything. Instead, she looked towards Cai Anqi, who was still busy drinking soy milk and eating fried dough sticks, and said, “Anqi, come grocery shopping with me today.”
Cai Anqi almost choked to death on the fried dough stick when she heard what Ning Shu said. She swallowed the part she was eating and said, “But I’ve never gone grocery shopping before, mother-in-law. I don’t know how to buy vegetables so there’s no use in me going with you.”
Ning Shu calmly smiled and said in a patient tone, “If you don’t know, then you can learn. I’ll tell you which shops have cheap and fresh produce.”
Cai Anqi curled her lips in disdain. She had no interest in learning this.
“You and Wang Bo have to live together in the future. For now, I am still around to help you. But once I get old and have trouble moving, you must do the laundry and cook for the family.” Ning Shu said lightly.
Cai Anqi’s face turned pale. She had to do the laundry and cook?!
She had to serve this family?
“Mother, you’re being too old-fashioned. We’re now in the age of the internet. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want with just a simple phone call,” said Cai Anqi.
Ning Shu lifted her brows in astonishment. “Do you want to eat take out for the rest of your life?”
“Mother, just think about it. Every day when you cook, you have to spend money on water, electricity, gas, meat, vegetables, and oil. Not to mention the effort it takes to cook and you have to be surrounded by flames and smoke every day. It’s so much better to just order our meals,” persuaded Cai Anqi.
Ning Shu smiled faintly. “What about during New Year’s Eve, or during a family gathering? Do you want to order take out even during such occasions? It’s not proper.”
“Since you’re married, you must shoulder more responsibility. Today you must come shopping with me,” said Ning Shu sternly.
Cai Anqi looked unhappy. After eating her fill, she went back to her room, closed the door, and even locked it. It was clear that she didn’t want to go to the market with Ning Shu.
ing Shu washed all the dishes and chopsticks, put them away, then knocked on Cai Anqi’s door. She stood there knocking for a long time, but Cai Anqi still didn’t open the door.
