"Good afternoon, Aunt Tong. Sorry for bothering you." Yuan Zhou nodded his head and said mildly with a light apology.
"No, not really. That young man knows nothing but to shout and shout." There was full of dislike in Boss Tong's tone.
Nonetheless, Yuan Zhou didn't say anything else, but just listened to her silently.
"That young man is too young. He only wants to acknowledge you as his teacher, but never works hard." Speaking of Yuan Zhou, Boss Tong appeared quite complacent as if he were her younger generation.
"He's indeed very young." Yuan Zhou approved of that.
"Exactly. That Master Cheng is originally a famous chef, but even he wants to acknowledge you as his teacher," said Boss Tong proudly as if it were also her own honor.
"Thank you for your compliment." Yuan Zhou was never modest about his customers' compliments. For Boss Tong's, however, he felt a little embarrassed.
"It's good that he is gone. I think he has greatly affected your business." Boss Tong was still very protective of Yuan Zhou.
"Thank you." Yuan Zhou thanked her sincerely.
"You're welcome. By the way, why didn't you bring your clothes here to wash, Xiao Yuan?" Boss Tong remembered the proper business.
"I've been able to wash by myself recently." Yuan Zhou answered with an inconspicuous blush on his face.
Speaking of which, it was also because Yuan Zhou couldn't wash his own clothes and thus paid to let Boss Tong wash them that they became acquainted. Of course, he only paid her for washing his winter clothes. For the summer clothes, he usually washed them by himself in order to save money formerly.
In order to evolve into the prince charming, Yuan Zhou had mastered this ability recently.
"Haha. That's great. It doesn't matter even if you can't. After you get a virtuous wife in future, you don't need to worry about that anymore." Boss Tong joked with him smilingly.
There appeared a kind smile on her skinny face.
"Ok. I will try my best." Yuan Zhou nodded his head.
"Good. Little Yuan, is he coming for you?" With her sharp eyes, Boss Tong caught sight of Presenter Lu and his fellows walking across the street towards them.
"Maybe." Yuan Zhou turned his head and also saw Presenter Lu. However, he was a little puzzled.
After all, the shooting had finished and they had reached a win-win situation. They weren't supposed to come again.
"Boss Yuan, good afternoon." Presenter Lu greeted courteously and mildly.
"Good afternoon." Yuan Zhou nodded his head.
"I know you are usually busy in the morning, so I come in the afternoon. Please don't take it personally." Presenter Lu brought out the reason why he came in the afternoon.
"What's the matter?" Yuan Zhou was also quite curious about his purpose.
"There's indeed a matter that I need to discuss with you." As a presenter, Presenter Lu originally had a pretty face. With a smile like that, he really looked like a sunny and handsome man.
"Tell me first." When Yuan Zhou wasn't sculpting, he at least talked with others although he still spoke straightforwardly.
Seeing Yuan Zhou did not refuse him immediately, Presenter Lu also became relieved inwardly. Thus, the way he spoke became sincerer.
"Here's the situation. After the previous program was broadcasted, your professional sculpting skills greatly impressed the audiences. So I want to discuss with you if we can make a series." Presenter Lu enunciated clearly and gently.
"A series?" Yuan Zhou wanted to refuse him instinctively. After all, he really didn't know how to act in the program.
"Right. It's a series. That way, it can also promote the profession of chefs." Presenter Lu knew the price of the dishes and the fame of Yuan Zhou's restaurant and naturally, he knew that the free publicity wasn't a good motivation for Yuan Zhou. Therefore, he brought out a reason that sounded noble.
"So it is." Without giving an affirmative or negative answer, Yuan Zhou was about to refuse when Presenter Lu continued saying.
"I know you don't like talking much while cooking. Don't worry. I won't disturb you when you cook. You just need to answer a few questions occasionally." Presenter Lu said at once when he recognized that Yuan Zhou was afraid of trouble.
No wonder Presenter Lu was a professional presenter. With only a few words, he managed to make Yuan Zhou unable to refuse him.
At the sight of Yuan Zhou's hesitant look, Presenter Lu couldn't help letting out a sigh of relief.
"It seems that I have used the right strategy." Presenter Lu felt slightly comfortable inwardly.
That's right. Before he came to Yuan Zhou's restaurant, Presenter Lu had worked out a strategy.
First of all, he was a professional presenter and hence had a high EQ, far higher than that of Yuan Zhou.
So he spoke with Yuan Zhou politely, courteously and modestly. While listening to Yuan Zhou carefully, he also observed Yuan Zhou's expression constantly at the same time and made adjustment accordingly.
Judging from the result, it indeed worked well.
"I don't like being filmed." Yuan Zhou frowned slightly and still refused with a euphemistic tone.
"Never mind. We won't disturb you just like we did last time. You can just raise your head and say a few words occasionally. It's very simple and not troublesome at all." It was within his expectation to be refused. However, Present Lu didn't give up and still tried to persuade him.
For fear of being refused again, Presenter Lu continued saying, "You can consider carefully today and I will come tomorrow. I won't bother you anymore now."
"Ok. Bye." Yuan Zhou had intended to refuse him again, but nevertheless gave up when he caught sight of Yin Ya who was standing silently at the side.
"This Presenter Lu is really capable of weighing others' words and watching their expressions." Yuan Zhou murmured in the heart and only then looked toward Yin Ya.
"It's not business time." This was what Yuan Zhou said to Yin Ya once he opened his mouth.
"Do you think I'm a pig? I have just finished my lunch." Yin Ya rolled her eyes angrily.
After saying that, Yin Ya thought for a while and suddenly realized that there was no problem for her to eat once again. Of course, she could not say that out.
"Then what do you come here for?" Yuan Zhou swore that his words were what it literally meant.
After all, it was the first time that Yin Ya had been here at this time of day. Therefore, Yuan Zhou was fairly curious. However, Yin Ya suddenly became a little disappointed.
"Nothing special. Man Man asked me to give you this. Take it," said Yin Ya stiffly. The smile on her face had disappeared at that time.
"Ok. What is it?" Yuan Zhou received it and asked subconsciously.
"Why don't you check it by yourself?" As a beauty, Yin Ya was always beautiful even when she rolled her eyes.
"Nothing is written on it." Yuan Zhou was a little embarrassed.
Yuan Zhou was holding a mildly white porcelain bottle in his hand. Except for some decorative patterns, indeed there wasn't any word written on it."
"Cough cough cough. It's mink oil. We know you are burned and must feel terrible. Just take it to use." Only when Yin Ya heard Yuan Zhou did she suddenly realize it was a sub-packaging and there were truly no words on it. Therefore, she coughed to hide her embarrassment and then explained indifferently.
"Send my gratitude to Man Man, please. And also thank you for your dropping by." Yuan Zhou revealed a faint smile and said gently.
"It's so rare to hear you say some good words." Yin Ya humphed.
"No, I don't think so. I feel I always say good words." Yuan Zhou answered bluntly without even thinking.
"You are thinking too much. Just use it now. A chef that has a senior master as his disciple surprisingly can also get burned?" Yin Ya was originally mild when she talked to people. However, she just found it difficult to treat Yuan Zhou like that.
After all, Yuan Zhou could choke her up very easily.
"It was just an accident." Yuan Zhou looked at the blisters on his hand and knitted his brows slightly.
"Yeah, yeah, of course. Then use the medicine." After saying that, Yin Ya turned around and left.
"Thank you." Yuan Zhou said again.
