979 His Eyes Were Burning, Making Her Face Feel on Fire
This was his first time looking at her face so closely. Her skin was clean and tender, like jelly, without any freckles or acne. He even wanted to take a bite of that skin.
Mo Liuxi stopped himself from doing anything that he should not be doing. He put his other hand on her face.
Yan Su was a bit startled when his warm hand suddenly touched her cheek.
"What are you doing?" she asked as her cheeks reddened.
"You were moving, so I couldn't wipe the oil off your face," Mo Liuxi said as he moved closer to her.
His handsome face was only about 5 inches away from hers. Yan Su was so nervous that she didn't even dare breathe loudly.
"I wasn't moving," she said.
"You were. You just didn't realize it." Mo Liuxi wanted so much to pinch her cheeks, but he couldn't.
Yan Su doubted what he said. Due to their current positions, her brain wasn't working well. Occasionally, the towel brushed across her nose, allowing her to smell the scent that belonged to him.
It was his towel. Normally, people didn't share towels with others. Even some couples wouldn't share towels.
The spicy oil burned her cheeks. As Mo Liuxi's towel left her eyes, she tried to open them. She moved backward and said, "I'm OK."
"Be careful," Mo Liuxi said. "You're just having some crawfish. I can't believe you let that happen. You dumb little girl."
He lowered his voice when saying the last few words. Listening carefully, one might sense an affectionate tone from them.
Yan Su didn't sense it. On the contrary, she felt humiliated.
"What did you say?" she asked. "I'm three years older than you. Can you please show me some respect?"
"I don't think so." Mo Liuxi dropped the towel and turned up the corners of his mouth.
She was older than him, but she needed his caring.
Yan Su clenched her teeth and asked, "Would I squeeze crawfish juice into my eyes if you didn't scare me just now?"
"I did nothing but raise my voice a little bit," Mo Liuxi said. He looked at her without blinking. "You shouldn't have mentioned pretty girls or something like that. I'm telling you, if I ever fell for a girl, I'd love her my whole life."
Yan Su paused briefly. She couldn't tell if that was real, but his eyes were burning, making her face feel on fire.
"Alright, I believe you, but I don't need to know what kind of girl you like," she said.
"I don't want the others to misunderstand me," Mo Liuxi said.
He turned his face away. He decided to end that topic since he didn't want to scare her.
"Oh." Yan Su nodded and continued removing the crawfish shell. She had about 10 crawfish. "I'm full. I'm going home."
After saying that, she stood up.
Mo Liuxi turned and said, "You said that you were in a bad mood earlier. Are you feeling better now?"
Yan Su paused and turned back. She saw the back of Mo Liuxi's head. He was focusing on the food as if it was only a casual question to ask.
"I'm better," she responded with a dry voice.
Running away was not a solution. Shi Xiang was a barrier to her, and she had to cross it.
"Good. I don't want your bad mood to affect our barbecue trip on Friday," Mo Liuxi said.
After Yan Su left, Mo Liuxi looked at the rest of the crawfish in his bowl. Suddenly, he felt that he had lost his appetite.
That was exactly why he didn't want to start a relationship. That could really affect his appetite. For the first time in his life, he lost his appetite for after-dinner snacks because of a woman. That was terrible.
The next day, Yan Su was awoken by knocking on her door. She put on a coat and unhappily answered the door. As she thought, Mo Liuxi was standing there.
Before she started to complain, he threw his phone into her hand and said to her, "Look, you're in the headlines."
