Chapter 84: Thick (3)
Ye Xi looked at Nangong Hai and laughed dryly.
Nangong Hai was stunned. Her current smile looked anything but friendly.
He had always believed in his instincts, and things didn’t seem right just this moment. He quickly said, “You two should chat, I’m going to bed.”
Then, he was just about to go when Ye Xi caught him at the back of his collar, dragging him back to the sofa. “It’s still early, what are you in such a hurry for?”
Immediately, Nangong Hai knew that his instincts had been accurate. Then, he turned back and revealed a flattering smile, saying, “I’ve always slept early.”
“Ha ha.” Ye Xi laughed.
Nangong Hai could feel that things were bad, but no matter how he thought about it, he couldn’t figure out how he had offended her.
At this moment, Bing Yiyi jumped up, unwilling to be left out, and said, “Haha, you have such a good relationship.”
Ye Xi turned back to her with a nonchalant smile and said, “Of course, Xiao Hai knows me very, very well.”
Bing Yiyi’s face was slightly distorted, but then she put on a look of disgust and said, “I didn’t know you had quite the extensive connections.”
Girl, do you even understand what that means?
But Ye Xi couldn’t be bothered to deal with her.
After a short few minutes, Wei Shenglan came downstairs with her sister.
Nobody knows what Wei Shenglan talked about with his sister, but Wei Shengliu’s enthusiastic aura was distorted. Her heard was lowered and her face looked gloomy, but she also looked like she was speechless.
Wei Shenglan walked over to Ye Xi’s side and sat down. he took a look at her hand that was currently holding Nangong Hai’s collar and said, “Xiao Hai, go and pour Ye Xi a cup of tea.”
Nangong Hai immediately found the will to break out from Ye Xi’s demonic grasp and fled for the kitchen.
But that didn’t bother Ye Xi. Nangong Hai lives here anyway, he can’t escape. She could come over to beat him up anytime. It didn’t have to be now.
And so, Ye Xi did not mind that he fled to the kitchen.
But Wei Shengliu asked, “A cup? Just one cup? What about me and Yiyi?”
Wei Shenglan said plainly, “Shut up.”
Wei Shengliu puffed up her cheeks to show that she was angry.
Bing Yiyi quickly put on the nice act and said, “Don’t be angry, Sis Liu. I’m not thirsty.”
Wei Shengliu huffed, “But I am.”
Bing Yiyi: …
This is probably a good example of friendly fire as mentioned in the legends.
Ye Xi couldn’t help but sympathize with Bing Yiyi for having such an…unconventional teammate.
Wei Shengliu noticed that Ye Xi was looking at her. In her eyes, no matter how she looked at it, Ye Xi’s sympathetic gaze just looked like she was showing off and feeling proud. Anger swelled up in her heart, but because her brother was still around, she couldn’t let herself go.
So, Wei Shengliu glared at Ye Xi with the fiercest expression she could muster.
Ye Xi looked away silently.
Nangong Hai paced around the kitchen for close to ten minutes before coming out with some mineral water in a ceramic cup.
He placed the cup down in front of Wei Shenglan, who pushed the water in front of Ye Xi.
Ye Xi picked it up and took a sip. Then, she looked at Bing Yiyi and Wei Shengliu whose faced had all turned a little ugly. She didn’t know why, but she actually felt quite pleased.
That was the gaze of someone who hates someone and wanted to beat them up, but didn’t dare to say anything.
And Ye Xi realized afterward that she was getting worse and worse. Hahaha.
Both Bing Yiyi and Wei Shengliu quickly bid them farewell. Clearly, they were too angry and couldn’t stand getting anymore angry than this.
A wise move.
