Chapter 35 You’re Going to a Banquet?!
Elisa did not answer Will while Rachel shifted her gaze between Elisa and Will. Something must be going on between the two of them! Could it be that Elisa has a thing for Will? But she hasn’t told me anything all this while. No way, it can’t be!
With a subtle change in her expression, Rachel asked directly, “Come on Elisa, you should’ve introduced your new friend to me earlier. When did you guys know each other? You guys seem to be pretty close.”
Rachel winked at Elisa while saying that.
Will replied profoundly with a smile, “We haven’t known each other for long, but our relationship is pretty good.”
Relationship? What kind of relationship? Rachel looked nonplussed while Elisa smirked.
“Wash the vegetables.”
Will giggled. “Yes, ma’am!”
‘Yes, ma’am?’ Rachel was even more baffled by the situation.
She glanced at Elisa from time to time, hoping to get some clues from her, but the latter had not expressed anything even after the dishes were served. Rachel drooled at the sight of the flavorful dishes.

Before they started digging in, she was already satisfied by the aroma of the food. “Smells amazing! Elisa, please take me in from now on. I promise to help clean the house!”
Will was surprised at Elisa’s cooking skills too. All the dishes were tempting.
He smiled and said, “Count me in. I won’t be a free-rider. I can help with the odd jobs.”
Elisa sat down beside Rachel after passing a set of cutleries to each of them. She put on a half-smile and blurted, “Thank you, guys, but I’m afraid I’ll go bankrupt.”
Rachel chuckled. “That’s not an issue since we have Mr. Darcey with us. We can eat all we want!”
Will hummed with a smile, “My pleasure.”
Perceiving that Rachel was going to continue talking, Elisa picked a piece of meat and stuffed it into her mouth. “Dig in.”
Rachel was rendered speechless.
After serving Rachel a bowl of rice, Elisa thought of something and glanced at Will. “Would you like to have some alcohol, Mr. Darcey?”
“I’m good. I still have to drive later.”
Elisa nodded and sat down to eat after serving the rice.
Although Will was an unexpected guest, he was good at breaking the ice. Rachel was an extrovert too, so the three of them got familiar with each other after a short while.
Rachel was the one who babbled nonstop. Will would chime in from time to time while Elisa remained silent most of the time.
The six dishes on the table were aromatic and scrumptious.
Will was more impressed the more he ate. He would rarely go for a second bowl of rice, yet he got himself a second bowl today.
Will praised from the bottom of his heart, “Elisa, your cooking skills are so amazing that I doubt the national chefs can hold a candle to you.”
