There were meat porridges, sandwiches, a platter of fresh vegetables, beautifully shaped poached eggs, and a little plate of pickles.
Xu Xiyan scooped some porridge into a bowl and placed it in front of Huo Yunshen. She also handed him a sandwich.
“What do you think, Mr. Huo? I haven’t cooked for a long time,” she said modestly. ” I’m afraid I’m quite rusty at it.”
When Xu Xiyan was abroad, she was so busy that she often had no time to cook and ended up fixing quick and easy meals.
She knew that this was one of the reasons Ying Bao had always wanted to buy a daddy: one who can cook and would never let her go hungry.
Huo Yunshen took a bite of a sandwich and tasted the meat porridge. His eyes went wide in surprise.
“Mmm, not bad! They’re very tasty, much better than the ones I make.”
Xu Xiyan was relieved. She smiled.
“You are too modest, Mr. Huo. My cooking skills are still no match for yours. You’re still better.”
Indeed, Huo Yunshen’s cooking was the kind that you would not forget after just a bite.
“You should eat, too!” Huo Yunshen beckoned to her.
Xu Xiyan sat down in the same chair she had sat in the last time and dined with him.
They finished their breakfast. The two were supposed to go to Jingyue Entertainment together, but Xu Xiyan received a call from Fang Xiaocheng. Something was up, and Xu Xiyan had to cancel their appointment.

Xu Xiyan couldn’t tell Huo Yunshen the truth. The one who fell ill was Ying Bao. Fang Xiaocheng had told her on the phone that Ying Bao had just been diagnosed with acute gastroenteritis, and she’d been brought to the People’s Hospital for treatment.
Seeing that he was determined to dig deeper into the matter, Xu Xiyan reluctantly answered, “The First People’s Hospital.”
Xu XIyan grabbed her bag. “Okay I have to go now.” She hurried out the door.
It was raining quite heavily outside, but Xu Xiyan didn’t bring an umbrella.
She planned to use her bag to cover her head from the rain, but she heard Huo Yunshen’s voice calling after her.
“It’s raining so hard, and you don’t have an umbrella. Let me send you there…I have to go to the First People’s Hospital, anyway.”
“Mr. Huo, you don’t have to send me there. I can catch a taxi when I’m outside.”
Xu Xiyan turned and looked at him skeptically. She couldn’t figure out the real reason why he wanted to go to the hospital. Was it because he really needed to, or did he just want to accompany her there?
“No, it’s really no trouble. I’ll just a drop you off since we both hav
