The man coolly gave her a sidelong glance. With a squint of his eyes, he said in a low voice, "I think you're mistaken about something."
She was surprised. "What?"
"It's not 'despise' but 'dislike', instead. Of course, it's with the exception of dog meat."
With that, he gave her another meaningful glance. His words, in fact, carried a little threat.
To be honest, he really did not eat dog meat; he just wanted to scare a certain, foolish woman!
Clearly frightened by his words, she hurriedly asked, "What do you want?! What ill intentions are you harboring?! You won't really do anything to Little Zhezhe, right?!"
He lifted a brow. "I haven't done anything yet, but even if I do eat it up, what can you do about it?"
In her hurry, she unexpectedly blurted out, "D*mn! Then, I'll eat you up!"
The man was surprised by her words. He then revealed a teasing yet evilly charming smile. "Well, I'd like to see how you'd do that."
She did not realize her mistake immediately, but after seeing his teasing gaze, no matter how stupid she was, she understood his meaning at once. A hint of redness spread across her face and she turned her face away in shame and anger, no longer looking at him.
He found this woman really adorable, much cuter than the dog. Her face was all red with just a light teasing; he had not done anything much at all!
He could not help laughing at this. His laughter made her feel even more awkward, though. Hence, she stuffed a piece of bread into his mouth with a frown. "Eat your breakfast! Go to work after you're done!"
After breakfast, she stood by the door with the puppy and its bed in her arms and looked at the man dressed in a casual suit. She wanted to say something, but she hesitated each time she opened her mouth.
Only after the man had walked to the door and given her a sidelong glance to communicate his intention to leave did she find the courage to speak her mind!
His footsteps stopped and he picked at her words. "Who is 'that'?"
Speechless at this, she blanked for half a second before promptly correcting herself, "Zhe!"
How rare it was for her to call him in such an intimate manner! The man smiled in satisfaction. She hurriedly stepped forward and smilingly said, "Zhe, I'm not allowed to bring the dog to work!"
He was clearly indifferent to it. "Oh, what about it then?"
She pointed to the dog. "Can you bring it with you?"
He turned to regard her thoughtfully before coldly stating, "My company also prohibits employees from bringing pets at work."
She solicitously tidied his tie and clothes for him, blinking her eyes and acting cute as she pouted. "You're the boss, anyway – the big boss at that. No one would dare to say anything about you bringing pets at work!"
He squinted. "The CEO of the company is taking the lead in violating the rules and regulations?"
She was helpless at this. "… Is it that serious?"
He answered, "Yes, it is."
She expressed her sympathy. "That's because you're not stern enough. In general, even if the boss brings a lion, a tiger, an elephant, or even a woman at work, the employees will still not dare bring a hamster at work."
He then asked, "Are women pets, too?"
She answered firmly, "Little Zhezhe isn't a pet, too! He's your son!"
He ground his teeth as he corrected her again. "I've already said that my genes are normal."
