Provocative Fiery Wife: My Superior Is A Affectionate Spitfire Chapter 277
Pei Ge shook her head and looked especially innocent when she asked, "I didn't know. Didn't you drink that coffee with sugar and milk the other time we had coffee?"
"…" At her words, he felt like murdering himself for drinking that coffee with her.
Only heaven knew why he had accompanied her to drink such coffee.
"Alright, CEO Ji, don't be picky. This is my first time brewing coffee for someone else." She looked at him with eyes bright with anticipation.
Seeing the cup of steaming hot coffee and her look of expectation, he had no choice but to carefully and slowly pick it up.
Mhm, that was right! His movement was slow and cautious! That was because… the coffee was really filled to the brim.
Ji Ziming pursed his lips together and placed the cup near them. He could smell the sweet scent of milk.
"Does it taste nice?"
For some reason, hearing her expectant voice, the hand that was about to put the cup down paused in mid-air and brought it back to his mouth.
He took a sip of the coffee from the cup.
His taste buds were immediately assailed by a sweet and greasy milky taste that only made his mouth uncomfortably tight.
"How is it? Is it delicious?" Watching him drink the coffee without any expression, she grew curious of its taste.
After he finally managed to gulp down that sip of coffee, he quickly put the cup down.
Unknown if it was his imagination, his stomach felt very uncomfortable.
Drinking the very disgusting coffee, he, who was now in a bad mood, really wanted to lecture her, but when he saw her genuine look of anticipation, he swallowed his words as well.
"Well, you can leave now." Damn it. Why is it that a look at this woman stops me from saying anything bad to her?
"Oh." When he did not answer her question, she felt slightly disappointed.
She felt even more disappointed when he only took one sip of the coffee before stopping.
"CEO Ji, regardless of the coffee's taste, you should finish it, or else it will be wasted. I put in a lot of sugar and milk, too. It's a good thing I didn't use the coffee beans to brew—"
Her grievances had yet to be aired out completely when he interrupted her.
"What did you say?! You didn't brew this with coffee beans?!" He could not believe his ears. What else could be brewed into coffee in his pantry besides coffee beans?
"Mhm, yes. I don't know how to brew with coffee beans, so I used the packet of coffee powder I found after a long search." She nodded happily.
Once she finished saying this, his face immediately darkened.
"Coffee powder?" He narrowed his eyes dangerously at her.
"Yes, but I only found one pack at the bottommost drawer," she said rather smugly.
"I've never asked anyone to buy coffee powder." He felt his stomach becoming more uncomfortable.
"Maybe, it's a gift?" She shrugged.
"Bring that packet of coffee powder here for me to see," he demanded coldly.
She spit inwardly as his expression grew frostier, If the coffee I brewed tastes bad, then it tastes bad; why does he have to give me such a look?
"Oh." However, seeing his dark expression, she was wise enough to retrieve the discarded packet from the dustbin in the pantry without arguing.
How strange… Why would that annoying person want her to retrieve the coffee packet?
Curious, she brought the packet to his desk.
"Here, CEO Ji." She passed over the packet to him.
He seriously scrutinized the small packet the moment it reached his hand.
She pouted in her heart at how serious he looked. What was there to look at on a packet? Flowers would not bloom from it.
Just then, he raised his head and stared at her with rage-filled eyes.
The low, angry growl caused her to jump in surprise.
"Wh - What…" She blinked, sensing danger around her.
"This packet of coffee has expired!" This dumb woman was really going to be the death of him.
Never mind that the coffee she had served him had sugar and milk, even the coffee used were past their expiry date!
"Ah? I - Impossible!" She widened her eyes in disbelief and quickly snatched the packet from his hand.
She studied it seriously just like he did before.
When she saw the expiration date inked in black, her whole being was rooted to the spot.
"This coffee has really expired…" she mumbled softly and looked at him in a daze.
"Then, you still brewed it for me to drink?!" He was still angry at her, but her silly look caused much of his anger to dissipate.
"So - Sorry… I didn't mean to… I didn't notice…" She licked her lips, looked apologetically at him, and then hung her head low, just like a child who had done something wrong.
She admittedly knew that he disliked sweet food, so she deliberately put some sugar and milk to his coffee, but she really did not know that the packet of coffee had expired.
Seeing how guilty she looked, all the anger in his heart faded.
He was about to say something comforting to her, but one look at the coffee before him, and his stomach began to feel queasy again.
"You'd better go back and learn how to brew coffee beans! How to brew coffee!" he ordered with an angry look.
"Oh, oh, yes! I'll go back and search on the internet!" She nodded vigorously. Since she was his secretary, then she must learn how to brew coffee!
Hearing that she was going to learn how to brew coffee from the internet, he felt that his stomach was in even more discomfort.
