"It's nothing." Gu Jinchen shook his head.

"Hmm?" She knew her husband well, and his demeanor clearly showed that it wasn't nothing.

Seeing that Luo Ge had noticed, Gu Jinchen sighed resignedly and patted her head.

"...Worrier, you're still pregnant."

"It's okay, it doesn't matter."

Under Luo Ge's inquisitive gaze, Gu Jinchen sighed again and could only explain the situation to her.

For now, they had only acquired three restaurants - one in the town, and the other two in the provincial capital.

The restaurant they had taken over in the town had been doing quite well, with a good reputation, and was considered one of the top two in the town.

Initially, it had taken Gu Jinchen some effort to acquire the restaurant.

Because there had been one thing after another to deal with during that period, they hadn't had the time to make any thorough renovations.

So they had left it as it was, keeping things as they were before, which was relatively stable overall.

They had visited once, and the chefs' culinary skills were excellent, while the managers and staff were all long-time employees of the restaurant, performing their duties well.

However, competition in the industry never ceased, and it was no different at this time.

Since the restaurant business was lucrative, there were naturally many eyeing them with envy.

Money has the power to sway people's hearts, and perhaps because they knew that these new owners were from ordinary farming families without any backing or prospects, while the offers made by others were very tempting.

So within this month, the head chef and manager of the restaurant had successively submitted their resignations to Gu Jinchen.

Those who wanted to leave could not be kept, and Gu Jinchen knew this well.

It was their skill that enabled them to be poached.

Retaining such people against their will would be of no benefit, so Gu Jinchen naturally did not try to stop them, agreeing to let them leave at the end of the month.

However, the head chef and manager were the pillars of the restaurant, capable of handling everything.

With both of them leaving together, the restaurant would inevitably become unstable.

And this restaurant was something Luo Ge had always been eager and attentive about.

So last night, he had mentioned it to see what she planned to do.

But at the time, Luo Ge was extremely tired and fell asleep quickly, so he didn't say much more.

However, this morning when he went out, there were more issues at the restaurant, which angered him.

That was why he couldn't control his expression earlier, causing her to notice.

But to his surprise, after hearing what he said, Luo Ge only paused briefly before accepting it. 𝓯𝑟𝓮ℯ𝘸ℯ𝘣𝑛ℴ𝘷ℯ𝓵.𝘤𝑜𝑚

"It's okay, we'll just find new people."

She had anticipated this to some extent.

She had met the head chef before, who was quite arrogant due to his excellent culinary skills and had lofty ambitions.

As for the manager, he was rather greedy, having the appearance of a kind person but seeming somewhat insincere, though greed is a normal human tendency.

Such a situation occurring with them was not entirely unexpected to Luo Ge.

Competition within the industry was common. When a good restaurant experienced changes and showed vulnerabilities, it was normal for others to try to poach its employees.

Luo Ge had anticipated this possibility and wanted to see how they would handle it.

This was also the reason why, even though they had taken over the restaurant for quite some time, Luo Ge had not offered any suggestions for improving the business.

Another reason was that they were truly busy and had no time to deal with it.

After all, replacing and finding new employees, as well as making renovations, would be a very labor-intensive undertaking.

But it was impossible for her to be completely indifferent.

After all, the words spoken by the former manager and head chef had sounded very promising.

"Hmm? You're not angry, wife?" Seeing Luo Ge's calm acceptance, Gu Jinchen was somewhat surprised.

"Didn't you say it's futile to keep them? Then why get angry?"

"Instead of being angry, we should focus on how to deal with this while we have the time now."

Now that their other matters had been taken care of, they could finally address the issues with the restaurant.

Hearing Luo Ge's words, Gu Jinchen nodded repeatedly in agreement.

"Yes, what my wife says makes sense."

Seeing his deliberate serious expression tinged with pride, Luo Ge couldn't help but laugh.

She gave him a light tap, saying, "Stop being so silly."

Her touch was gentle and soft, making Gu Jinchen feel a pleasant tickle.

He rubbed his shoulder, "It's fine, as long as my wife likes it."

Hearing his words, Luo Ge gave him another annoyed look, which only made him laugh even more.
