The lunch was sumptuous.
Penelope said she was on a diet, so she didn’t join the lunch.
Without her presence, Susan was in a good mood.
Ben sat beside Susan. Although he didn’t say anything, he ladled Susan a bowl of soup.
Looking at that, Charlie couldn’t help but smile.
It seemed that Ben was also very satisfied with his wife.
Maybe Charlie could have a great–grandchild soon.
Looking at that bowl of chicken soup served by Ben, Susan was hesitant. “You don’t like it?” Ben raised an eyebrow.
“Sure, I do!” Susan took a quick sip and her eyes lit up. “This chicken soup is delicious!”
“Oh? You’re not lying to me, are you?” Ben looked at her bright eyes. with a smile.
“No, no, it’s the first time I’ve tasted chicken soup without the smell of tonic. It’s so good.” Susan was almost moved to tears by the delicious chicken soup.
However, Ben’s gaze gradually darkened.
“What did she mean? She has been drinking chicken soup with tonic in the Miller residence? Is she in poor health?” He couldn’t help but wonder. Ben narrowed his eyes but did not speak out what he thought. Instead, he silently served Susan food.
Susan wasn’t a picky eater. In fact, she enjoyed most of the dishes and even felt grateful while eating.
However, she was subconsciously resistant to certain things.
For example, she didn’t even dare to look at the spinach salad for fear that he would serve it to her.
Ben contemplated Susan’s peculiar behavior and made a mental note of it.
After a satisfying meal, Susan practically slumped on the chair.
Charlie found it amusing and laughed, saying, “It seems that this chef’s

cooking is very much to Susan’s liking.”
Ben raised his eyebrows and called a servant, saying, “Pay today’s chef twice as much.”
The servant hurriedly conveyed the message.
Susan was a little embarrassed. She sat upright and said with awkwardness, “Did I eat too much?”
“Not at all,” Ben said with his eyes fixed on her. “You are too thin. You should eat more. From now on, for every pound you gain, I’ll increase the chef’s salary by 2,000 dollars per month.”
She was 5 feet 5 inches but only about 80 pounds. She was indeed too thin.
She needed to be at least 100 pounds.
“What?!” Susan flushed. “That would be such a waste of money. I… I won’t dare to eat anymore.”
Ben chuckled. “Don’t worry. As long as you don’t gain tons, I can still afford it.”
Hearing this, Susan glanced at Ben while musing, “Gain tons? Does he think I’m a whale or something?”
At the same time, a strange feeling welled up in Susan’s heart.
Before marrying into this family, she had mentally prepared herself for a difficult life.
But the current situation was much better than she had imagined.
She even felt much more at ease than when she was in the Miller
At least, she could eat whatever she wanted without forcing herself to eat all kinds of blood–enriching tonic and food here.
And Ben wasn’t the ruthless and ferocious person the rumor said at all.
Susan felt genuinely fortunate.
Ben didn’t stay long at home. He returned to the company after finishing his meal.
When Susan heard that Charlie had the habit of taking a walk after every meal, she offered to accompany him.
The Landor residence was very large, and even just walking in the garden. would take more than half an hour.
Susan walked slowly, supporting Charlie.
Walking on the cobblestone path, Charlie looked at Susan and suddenly chuckled
“Grandpa, what’s wrong?” Susan felt a little embarrassed by his chuckle,
Charlie said with a smile. “Susan, you’re a good girl.”
He really admired Susan. Originally, because of the Miller family, he held some resentment towards her. However, in just one day, she made him change his attitude about her.
And now he was even grateful to the Miller family.
Susan blushed slightly in response to Charlie’s compliment. “Thank you so much, Charlie,” she said.
Charlie patted the back of her hand, saying, “Ben’s face is indeed a little scary. I’m surprised that you are not afraid of him at all, and it’s even rarer that he would voluntarily serve food for a woman.”
Susan’s face turned even redder. “That’s because Ben is actually a good person.”
“A good person?” Charlie repeated these words in his mind and his expression became peculiar.
He suspected that his granddaughter–in–law might have misunderstood his grandson.
But it didn’t matter. He liked this misunderstanding.
Charlie smiled and said, “Anyway, the two of you should get along well and try to give me a great–grandson as soon as possible.”
Susan blushed even more, but still answered softly, “I know.”
Susan was such a good girl. Charlie was really satisfied with her. He
couldn’t help but imagine what his great–grandson would look like.
Charlie thought happily, “Ben and Susan are both good–looking and their children must be cute as well.”
In the Storm Group.
“Not so good. Modify these parts.”
“The meeting process needs to be further streamlined.”
“Storm Group cannot agree to these investment conditions. Ask the other party to lower it by another three percentage points.”
People in the CEO’s office came out one by one.

Everyone had a look of lingering fear on their faces.
Most of them had been asked to make revisions.
This was not the point. After all, Ben always had such high standards.
The point was…
Ben didn’t scold them!
Why did the tyrant suddenly change his nature?
They felt a bit unaccustomed.
Could it be that something good happened to him?
“Do you think it’s because he just got married?” someone tentatively asked.
“How is that possible? Marriage means nothing to Mr. Landor. He only cares about his work! I guess it’s because some important cooperation has been achieved recently.”
“With Storm Group’s status, it should be those who cooperate with us feel happy, right? I don’t think that’s the reason.”
People were discussing it fervently.
It was six o’clock.
The bell rang. It was time to get off work.
Everyone remained motionless.
Everyone knew that Ben was a workaholic. Average employees could leave, but those in middle and upper management didn’t dare to leave so early.
As usual, Ben’s secretary was ready to knock on the door with a takeaway.
But as soon as his hand touched the door, Ben came out.
He held a laptop and a coat, looking like he was about to leave.
The secretary was confused. “Mr. Landor, you…”
Ben looked at him calmly, saying, “I’m going home to have dinner. Is that strange?”
“Not at all!” the secretary quickly replied.
Actually, he was already shouting in his heart that there was nothing more strange than that!
Ben used to treat the office as his home.
But today, he said he needed to go home for the documents at noon.

And now he was going home for dinner!
“Is Mr. Landor possessed by something?” the secretary wondered.
Go tell everyone to leave on time. Don’t rush on unfinished tasks. They can do it tomorrow,” Ben raised an eyebrow and said.
The secretary nodded and immediately passed on the instructions after
Then, people in the whole company went crazy.
“Ben the Tyrant actually asked us not to rush on the unfinished tasks and complete them tomorrow? It’s as rare as witnessing the sun rise in the west. Could marriage have truly transformed him? It seems implausible. It’s more likely that he underwent a genetic mutation,” they thought. Everyone then started praying silently that the effects of the genetic mutation would last longer.
