“If that’s the case, has she been discharged? How’s she doing?” Henry Armstrong asked.
“She’s been discharged long ago. She’s doing very well,” Stanley Batton answered.
“Well then, Sebastian and I must come over to visit her. Wait for me. I’m coming back right now,” Henry added.
“Don’t,” Stanley said without hesitation.
“We’re just paying the sick a visit,” Henry said.
“She doesn’t allow me to bring friends home,” Stanley added.
“And you’re not going to just because she says so? Why are you so obedient?” Henry retorted.
“Do you have a problem with that?” Stanley asked.
“No… How would I even dare?” Henry rubbed his head, helplessly. “But I want to visit her. There’s nothing wrong with your friend visiting her, right?” Henry added.
“Don’t get in our way,” Stanley said before hanging up right away.
Henry felt thoroughly confused. He couldn’t resist cursing at Stanley. “What the hell has gotten into this friend of mine? Is he a person who values women over his friends?”
After Stanley hung up the phone, Xyla Quest happened to be walking out of the bathroom.
He instantly returned to the couch. Very soon, Xyla sat down next to him.
“I’ll make a stew for you later. What would you like? Bird’s nest? Sea cucumbers? Or cordyceps?” Stanley asked.
“Can I not have any?” Xyla asked. Stanley had been making all sorts of stews for her these days.
Even pregnant ladies didn’t consume as many supplements as she did. Today, Xyla wished to experience a day without having to consume supplements.
“No,” Stanley said firmly. He wouldn’t take no for an answer.
Xyla covered her forehead helplessly. “Fine, I’ll have a bird’s nest stew. Oh right, I want. to have steak again for lunch.”
“Hold on. I’ll soak the bird’s nest before preparing the ingredients for lunch,” Stanley said before getting up and walking into the kitchen.
“I’m going upstairs to sort some workout,” Xyla said with a warm smile. With that, Xyla got up and walked up the stairs.
While Stanley was getting the bird’s nest soaked, Sebastian Brenand called him on the phone via a video call. Stanley directly placed the phone above the kitchen table before picking up. He then focused on getting the bird’s nest soaked.
On the other end of the call, Sebastian was shocked to see what Stanley was doing through his phone. “Are you doing these things as well? Such a caring husband,” Sebastian commented.
Stanley quickly put the soaked bird’s nest aside before retrieving two pieces of steak from the fridge. He began to marinate them carefully.
“Holy sh*t! I must screenshot this and send it to everyone in the group…” Sebastian felt as if he was watching something miraculous that only happened once every ten thousand years. He directly took a screenshot. “Who would’ve thought that there was this side to our manly Stanley?”
Stanley frowned a little before glancing at the screen. “Hurry up and say what you have called to say. If there isn’t anything important, hang up.”
Sebastian chuckled. “It’s not a big deal. I just heard from Henry that Xyla went through surgery. That’s why I called to check on her.”
“Hmm, she’s fine. Don’t worry,” Stanley said before carefully sprinkling salt onto the steak. Every move was made elegantly and swiftly.
“Okay. Let’s meet up when you’re free,” Sebastian added.
“Got it…” Stanley said before hanging up right away.
After ending the video call, Sebastian sent the screenshot of Stanley marinating steak into their group chat, ‘Gentleman’s Club’. Countless question marks appeared in the group chat instantly.
“??? When did @Stanley become a househusband?” Gary Lakes asked.
“??? Does our visionary CEO actually know how to cook a steak? @Stanley” Henry wrote.
“Aren’t you surprised? I sure was stunned when I saw it happening. @Stanley” Sebastian wrote.
“Who would believe it if we told them? @Stanley, would your employees be shocked if they found out their demon king, Stanley Batton, actually has this loving side?” Henry asked.
“@Henry, they wouldn’t just be shocked. They would probably pass out from the shock!” Sebastian replied.
When Stanley saw these men tagging him and gossiping about him, he didn’t feel at all bothered on the inside.
