Chapter 129: More face-palming moments
This round table only had four seats. It was made to fit four; which was perfect for them.
Dongfang Bai was sitting to the left of Le Yao Yao, while Leng Jun Yu was on her right. Nangong Jun Xi was directly across from her.
Although her status was the lowest, ultimately, Le Yao Yao didn't grow up in this era. So in her mind, she still had the equality mindset.
Dongfang Bai couldn't help but laugh when he heard Le Yao Yao's stomach rumbling.
Perhaps he was afraid Le Yao Yao wouldn't dare to eat, so he personally used his own jade chopsticks and placed a marinated piece of chicken in her bowl.
"Eat! No need to be so reserved."
"Hehe. Thank you, brother Bai!"
Le Yao Yao lifted her head and gave Dongfang Bai a stunning smile.
He responded, "Hurry and eat before you develop stomach pain from hunger!"
So, Le Yao Yao picked up the jade chopsticks and began to eat heartily.
But although she was starving, this time, Le Yao Yao wasn't eating like a starving ghost like she had previously. She probably wanted to leave a good impression on Dongfang Bai. She actually attempted to be ladylike.
After all, Dongfang Bai was such an elegant man. If she ate like a beast, she might scared him off.
While she was eating, Le Yao Yao's eyes were observing Dongfang Bai at the same time.
Today, Dongfang Bai was wearing white like he always was.
He seemed to really like the colour white. At the same time, the colour white suited him very well.
In addition, his movements were so smooth and elegant. It was as if he had practiced countless of times in front of the mirror.
Le Yao Yao finally realized she would feel less hungry if she stared at a delicious looking person (tl: LOL).
But the strangest thing of all was that each time she saw Dongfang Bai, she felt a familiar vibe.
She had felt this vibe the first time she saw him. But based on her memory, they hadn't met each other before that encounter. So why was she feeling this vibe?!
Could the previous owner of this body know him?
But Dongfang Bai doesn't seem to recognize her either?!
What a strange feeling…!
Suddenly, Le Yao Yao felt a burning gaze towards her direction. It caused her heart to pound as she turned to face it.
It was the King of Hell, and his face looked super annoyed. It was as if someone owed him hundreds of thousands of taels. And that person was her…
Le Yao Yao shivered and she forgot she was currently trying to gobble down a quail egg. As a result, a tragedy occurred.
Le Yao Yao felt an item being stuck in her throat. Currently, she couldn't swallow it down nor could she spit it out.
The quail egg was choking her, and Le Yao Yao was suffering and afraid. Her eyes were bulging as she tried to used her hand to dig the egg out.
Her gesture was incredibly frightening to everyone present.
Since Leng Jun Yu had his eyes on Le Yao Yao the entire time, he was planning to smack his palm into his back so that the egg would come out due to the force. But someone else was a step ahead of him.
"Brother Yao, open your mouth a bit bigger." Dongfang Bai gently spoke. Le Yao Yao opened her mouth a bit bigger and he instantly reached over and used his slender fingers to pull the egg out of Le Yao Yao's throat.
*cough cough*. "Huhu, I almost died from choking…!"
Suddenly, Le Yao Yao realized she took breathing for granted. She was grateful to be alive. But then she thought of something else and froze.
Just now, Dongfang Bai used his hand to help her pull out the quail egg?
Doesn't he find it gross?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao felt awkward, embarrassed, and touched.
By now, Dongfang Bai had finished washing his hands and once again sat next to Le Yao Yao. He picked up a teacup and handed it to the red-faced Le Yao Yao as he warmly suggested, "First, drink some tea to nourish your throat."
"Ohh..thank you, brother Bai!"
Le Yao Yao couldn't help but admire Dongfang Bai's white hand. It was so nice to look at! Although it was very different from the bronze skin colour that the King of Hell and Nangong Jun Xi had, his snow white skin didn't seem feminine at all. It matched very well with his appearance.
His fingers were long and slender. Even his nails were neatly trimmed.
It was obvious that he was a very clean man.
The moment she recalled he had used this hand to help her take out the quail egg, Le Yao Yao felt her face burning again as she stared down at the table.
She was so embarrassed that almost two hot streams of air could be seen coming out of her nose.
Oh God! So embarrassing!
In order to hide it, she quickly reached and accepted the tea from Dongfang Bai and gulped it down.
But because she was drinking it so quickly, she began to choke again.
Le Yao Yao quickly put down the tea cup and covered her mouth as she coughed vigorously.
Her face was even redder now.
Oh God! What was wrong with her today?!
First, she made that stupid move this morning. Then, she almost died from eating a quail egg. And now, she choked on water.
Could today be her unlucky day? She should've checked the calendar!
The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the more she wanted to cry but had no tears.
Until, someone lightly patted her on the back. Dongfang Bai's warm voice entered her ears, "Brother Yao, are you alright?"
Dongfang Bai's words were filled with concern and care. Le Yao Yao felt all warm over and was finally brave enough to look up and shook her head at Dongfang Bai.
"I'm fine. Thank you, brother Bai!"
For some reason, the moment she looked at the elegant man's face, she felt like it wasn't a big deal.
Who doesn't lose face every once in awhile?
