"This will cause you thousands to clean up!" Han Jie added while she wiped a finger on the messy counter top.
Bai Min at least managed to open all the windows, and let the smoke out of the room gradually.
"Quiet! I can afford thousands!" Bai Min glared as he tapped his phone with all the frustration that he currently had at that moment.
If possible he preferred to choke Han Jie instead of aggravating him further. However, that would be murder and unfair and she was correct.
Han Jie was also correct that he needed to stop trying things with his kitchen. 'At least I can fry eggs…' Bai Min thought dejectedly as he glanced at the recent mess he had created.
Hiring a cleaner would be pricey and with how the mess was at that moment, it might cause a lot.
Flour was all over the place. On the countertop and the floor. There was also flour on the wall. How that happened would leave anyone baffled.
Different ingredients were scattered all over the place. The smoke was mainly from the oven.
"Doctor Bai, what were you cooking?" Jonah asked curiously. There was still a tray inside the oven and Jonah has no idea what kind of food was there.
"Oh wait! Bai Min this is perfect!" Han Jie suddenly said as she hopped excitedly to the over.
Bai Min paused whatever he was about to say to the phone and look at her like she was crazy. While Jonah did not have a good feeling about this.
Han Jie made sure to wear mittens before she took out what was inside the oven. It was charred and still smoking. "Ah! This cake will save my life!"
Back in the hotel…
Jonah was still having a bad feeling about this. Han Jie had wanted Bai Min with her. More like she wanted to make sure he was there in case something happened to her because of what Bai Min had cooked.
By the way, it was not a cake; it was supposed to be lasagna. Well, it was before it turned into a lump of coal.
It was a blessing in disguise that Bai Min's house would take time to be cleaned. It was a good excuse to bring him to the hotel.
'I should report this… Just in case right?' Jonah thought to himself but didn't make any attempt to call his real boss.
At this time, he and Bai Min were in the living room waiting for Han Jie to get out of the room. She refused to have the stylist and the makeup artist that her father had arranged to help her.
How did she manage to convince her father? Han Jie threatened him, of course, to cause trouble immediately.
Han Feng just let her be and left the hotel suite. Probably to avoid getting his blood pressure from rising because of his anger towards his daughter.
It did not take long for Han Jie to get out of the room. "Guys! Check me out!" she said immediately.
Jonah and Bai Min turned their heads towards her direction and they were surprised.
Bai Min could not help but laugh. "You look smoking hot. Like you will be smoking when your father burned you later!"
Han Jie snorted, "He can't. There is no time to replace me. It will also take years to make another daughter." She said after a glance at the wall clock in the living room.
Then Han Jie walked barefeet confidently towards them. Han Jie even turned around like she was showing off herself.
"Not bad, right?" Han Jie asked as she was pulled down her dress.
Bai Min gave her thumbs up. She looked beautiful in her knee-length white tight dress, to which Jonah could agree. It was a high neck type of dress that looks demure with sheer lace as its long sleeves.
It certainly looked good on her and gave her the aura of elegance and innocence.
'Heh. With her work? Innocent is the last word to describe her.' Bai Min snickered to himself. Why? Because Han Jie dyed her hair red, which also gave a different vibe of hidden seductress for some reason.
Bai Min would look forward to how Han Feng will react to this.
"Why do you keep pulling the dress down?" Bai Min suddenly asked.
"But it's too short!" she wailed quietly.
"You call that short? That what was long for you?"
"Miss, that was how Miss Mei wore her clothes…" Jonah finally managed to speak. He was more worried actually for the incoming event later.
"Mei Mei wore them. I don't," she snapped back in reply. Her reaction gave away that Han Jie was nervous.
"Oh! You are nervous with father's wrath?!" Bai Min poked exactly where it hurt.
"Shut it!" that was the case. Han Jie did make sure though that aside from the red hair, her father won't notice anything amiss.
Bai Min laughed harder this time. As they were all having fun they failed to notice that some people had already entered the room.
