Marriage Without Love: Sir, Please Stop novel Chapter 41

Chapter 41 Have Dinner with Me Before You Go 

"What are you doing?" 

He asked Catalina. 

There was displeasure in his voice. 

"I'm chopping up meat." 

Catalina offered a simple answer without stopping what she was doing. 

The sound of her chopping meat was quite harsh. 

Bennett stepped forward and impatiently patted the mincer right in front of her. "Do you need me to teach you how to use it?" 

Catalina finally stopped chopping the meat. "I have to chop up the meat myself so that the ravioli will be more delicious." 

"Where did you hear such a ridiculous thing?" 

Bennett frowned, not agreeing with her. 

"My grandma told me that." 

Catalina continued to chop up the meat with her head down. 

Bennett saw her changed another hand to chop up the meat. 

He frowned, went to the sink, and washed his hands. Then he wiped them with disinfectant wipes and took the knife from Catalina's hand naturally. 

Catalina looked at him in dismay. 

What was he going to do? 

Bennett curled his fingers around the knife handle and chopped up the meat on the cutting board just as she had just done. But he did it quickly without effort. 

He did it so easily. 

Catalina froze. 

She looked at him in disbelief and her eyes were wide open. 

Bennett looked like he didn't fit in the kitchen, but to top it off, he was gorgeous! 

He was wearing a light gray cashmere sweater and a white shirt under it. He was dressing very simply and smartly. 

He was statuesque and straight in build with broad shoulders and a narrow waist. He got a lot of class and was impeccably handsome with gold-rimmed glasses on as if he was a male model in the magazines. 

He even looked aristocratic in the kitchen. 

"What are you looking at?" 

Bennett tapped a finger on Catalina's forehead and impatiently reminded her to get her head in cooking. "Get the bowl ready." 

Catalina's eyelashes fluttered lightly, and she finally reacted. 

Her heart fluttered at his intimate demeanor. 

She hurriedly took the bowl out of the cupboard to hide her panic. 

Bennett quickly finished chopping up the meat. 


Catalina thanked him. 

"You don't have to thank me." 

Bennett was still standoffish. "I just thought the sound of you chopping meat was too annoying, so I wanted to wrap it up soon." 

He washed his hands and sterilized them before he walked out of the kitchen. 

Catalina compressed her lips into a thin line. 

In fact, she was aware of this even if he did not explain. 

But she was still surprised by him chopping up the meat himself. 

Catalina couldn't help but peek back at him in the living room. 

He returned to the living room and sat down in front of the fireplace to continue reading as if nothing had just happened. 

As expected, he thought her noise disturbed his reading. 

Catalina, while mixing the minced meat with the seasonings, couldn't help but wonder what the woman Bennett loved looked like. 

And what charms did she get to win Bennett's heart? 

Catalina thought she must be perfect! 

Catalina's eyes were a little dim. 

Her heart ached. 

He was out of her league, so she sweared in her heart to keep her feelings for him under wraps and never let anyone find out about it. 


About half an hour passed. 

Catalina served a plate of steaming ravioli to the table. "Raviolis are ready." 

Bennett put down his book and came over. 

Catalina took off her apron. "I'm going back to my room to sleep. I'm getting a little sleepy and I have to get up early tomorrow." 

She made a good excuse for herself to leave. 

"Sit down." 

Bennett ordered. 

He pulled out a dining chair and sat down with an expressionless face. "I hate eating alone. Have dinner with me before you go." 

"I'll ask Hailee to have dinner with you."
