Chapter 46: Barbeque (2)
Ye Xi and Nan Gonghai looked at each other and picked up their chopsticks to swiftly claim all the meat from the grill onto their plates.
Bing Yiyi stared at the empty grill and hinted at her discontent. “Eating too much at night isn’t very good for your stomach.”
What she was really saying was, “Could you guys be any pettier?! You have no manners at all!”
Ye Xi gave a small smirk, and thought to herself, “All-you-can-eat is basically war. If you’re fast, you can eat, but you’ll be handling the grill if you’re too slow!”
You’re much too naive, young one.
The adult world is a cruel, desolate place!
Nan Gonghai grinned and said, “Our metabolisms are pretty decent, right Ye Xi?”
He wasn’t going to stand against her alone.
Ye Xi looked at him and nodded. “Yeah, they’re not bad. We could totally eat another three pounds.”
Bing Yiyii’s smile gradually turned plastic as her patience was tested.
Then, Nan Gonghai suddenly acted concerned and said, “But Yiyi, you shouldn’t eat too much! It’s not good for your stomach!”
Using your opponent’s own words against them… Not bad at all!
Ye Xi couldn’t help but commend him for his brutal execution.
Nan Gonghai knew that Ye Xi was secretly praising him, and met her gaze again with a newfound joy in his eyes. Everything was conveyed without a single word said.
Shang Guanxi and Dong Fangyu looked at each other, and both agreed that something was going on between them.
Nan Gonghai finally shifted his attention and was met with the icy glare of his good friend, Wei Shenglan.
“There’s seriously nothing between us. If you’re overthinking it, then that’s not my problem.” Nan Gonghai thought to himself.
Shang Guanxi saw Bing Yiyi sitting at the end of the table uncomfortably, and quickly moved away from the topic to ask, “Yiyi, is there anything you want to eat? I’ll throw it on the barbecue for you.”
Bing Yiyi’s expression immediately softened, and her gentle smile found its way back onto her face. “It’s fine, I only eat fruit at night.”
Don’t you know that fruits can also make you fat?!
Why are you even here if you’re not eating?
We had to pay for an additional person!
This is the kind of thing you shouldn’t do even if you’re filthy rich!
And I’m the one paying for this!
Ye Xi was having a full-blown explosion on the inside but only appeared to be quietly eating to everyone else.
Wei Shenglan leaned towards Ye Xi, and lowered his head as if he was going to say something but noticed that there was a huge cup of coke filled with ice just in front of her. He stopped and stood up to make his way towards the food area.
As soon as she saw him leave, Bing Yiyi followed behind.
Ye Xi glanced at the empty seat next to her and could feel the relief sinking in. She treated school as a profession if she was to be completely honest with herself. Every ounce of her mental capacity was exhaustively set on making An Mu Die the queen of the school again. With all of her existing troubles, she didn’t want to go against someone as important as Bing Yiyi outside of school as well.
Shang Guanxi’s eyes were locked onto Bing Yiyi most of the time, and when he saw that she got up, he quickly followed suit.
Dong Fangyu innocently looked at the only two left at the table other than him. They were totally engrossed in the food, and they were obviously very happy about it. Then he looked over to the three from afar getting food, and then it started to sink in. He felt incredibly awkward. He decided to stand up and walked towards the three in the food area.
Ye Xi rapidly finished her last bite of meat and sighed in satisfaction. She picked up her glass of coke and gulped another large sip.
Isn’t this the most satisfying feeling I’ve ever had in my life?!
