Sugar And Spice: The Ceo’s Feisty Wife Book 1 Chapter 361
Feng Xinying couldn't think of a better situation. Butler Lu Boyun was shocked. How could his master take his position? What about him? Master even though you have lost your memory, why are you taking my position? Why are cutting my tree? Where would I go? He was confused, shocked and at a loss of words. Everyone in the room looked from Xie Yuansheng to Lu Boyun. Xie Yuansheng looked hopeful while Lu Boyun looked shattered.
Feng Xinying turned her face to look at Keira as she couldn't help her face splitting grin. Keira was finding it hard to suppress her laughter and excitement. Xie Shengjun coughed hard.
Xie Yuansheng felt awkward and said, "I can be of immense help to you." He was putting his best foot forward. He didn't want to leave a single chance to convince Feng Xinying that she should actually employ him and can even do away with Lu Boyun.
Feng Xinying took a deep breath and said, "So you don't want to go to the rehabilitation center that the doctor had suggested for you?" She had to trap Xie Yuansheng in a way that he wouldn't feel forced. She wanted him to willingly come to her because forcing was not an option here. Since morning she been wondering what to do and as if the Gods had heard her, the opportunity came right in her lap.
"No, I would rather be of service to you," he replied very eagerly. He had to pay his debts.
Feng Xinying again took a deep breath and replied, "Actually I was thinking that today we would hand you over to the doctor and be free from your responsibility…"
Xie Shengjun gritted his teeth. Why is Feng Xinying doing so much drama? He interjected, "Yes, you can always join and in fact if Feng Xinying doesn't want, I have a position of Chef vacant at my place!" He was determined to get Xie Yuansheng in a safe place and that too as soon as possible.
Keira shook her head at her husband. "You moron!" she shouted at him. "We already have two Chefs at home."
"Then where will he go?" lashed Xie Shengjun back at Keira. This time Keira got scared and became quiet immediately. She knew that even though she wanted things to work in Feng Xinying's favor, she had crossed her line between brotherly love.
Feng Xinying had to calm the situation immediately because she was afraid that Xie Yuansheng would start suspecting. She looked at him and said, "Well, if you insist Shengu, I can allow you to work under Lu Boyun. I cannot remove Lu Boyun because he had been with us from a long time, but you can definitely work under him."
Xie Yuansheng sprang up from his place and said, "Thank you so much Feng Xinying." He went near her and held her hand in his. "I will not give you a single opportunity of complain."
Feng Xinying laughed. "Okay. It's done then. You can start working as soon as you want to but there is an employment contract you have to sign."
Xie Yuansheng's face fell. "Employment contract? What is that…?"
Feng Xinying couldn't help smiling as she remembered the contract he had made her sign when he wanted to marry her. He must have loved her so much, even at that time. "Don't worry. It's a simple one. After all you said that you want to repay back my kindness and I have to ensure that you do repay."
"Oh, okay! I will sign it," he replied as he left his hand and looked very happy.
Xie Shengjun narrowed his eyes at Feng Xinying. Although he became quiet, he wanted to know about the contract now.
"The doctor has said that we can leave the hospital by tomorrow after a few tests on you. So after we go back home, you can start your job," said Feng Xinying.
"Done!" replied Xie Yuansheng. He couldn't believe that his plan would become successful so soon. Now all he had to do was remove Lu Boyun from his place and become the head Chef. That way he would never have to leave Feng Xinying's job.
Feng Xinying nodded and looked at Lu Boyun who was now looking relieved but at the back of his mind he was wondering how would he go about ordering the Young Master. He left the room in a confused state. Feng Xinying went after him and Xie Shengjun followed her.
Lu Boyun looked perplexed. As soon as they were out of Xie Yuansheng's earshot, Feng Xinying said, "Lu Boyun, I want you to go and prepare a room for Xie Yuansheng as soon as you reach the mansion. Give him the room that belonged to Xie Weihui. Remove all other Chefs from the house. Give them a month's holiday. Tell all the servants and guards that the Young Master is coming home and he is not too well. Tell them not to speak much to him but ask all the guards to not let him out of sight at any point of time if he walks out in the gardens. He has to be monitored at all times."
"Okay Young Miss. But should I tell them that he is having amnesia?" asked Lu Boyun.
"No! You must never do that," said Feng Xinying immediately. "No one can know that he has amnesia or else they would start taking his advantage." She trusted no one.
"Okay," replied Lu Boyun and left.
Xie Shengjun was baffled. "Feng Xinying, what do have in mind? His gestures would be such that they would all know soon that something is wrong with him. Then they will question him and won't it get worse?"
"Well you have to see the contract I am going to write for him," said Feng Xinying with a glint of happiness and naughtiness in her eyes.
"I am getting scared of you Xinying," said Xie Shengjun with a frown.
Feng Xinying chuckled. "You should totally be present there when the contract is written."
