Chapter 220: You are so pitiful.
“I think that is the case. You’ve been bullied at home and now he even brought you to the company.
Xiao Zuo went on with his chatter and all his conclusions were self-made. With him prattling on, Fang Chixia had the urge to cover his mouth.
“Xiao Zuo, stop it.” Not wanting any gossip to set off, Fang Chixia glared at him.
Xiao Zuo looked at her with his small head and then summed everything up, “Oh, you are so pitiful!”
Fang Chixia remained silent and made no move to add more.
She turned around and went to the pantry for two cups of coffee. She took a cup to Luo Yibei’s office.
Xiao Zuo followed in. His eyes were fixed at her, grumbling.
When he was present, the strings on each of Fang Chixia’s nerves were stretched tight.
It’s mainly due to this child being too clever. If he were to see accidentally anything odd with her interactions with Luo Yibei, Fang Chixia feared the same consequences as to what happened to Tong Yan.
Fang Chixia cautiously entered the office, reserved all the way through the door.
When she came to Luo Yibei’s table, she set the cup of coffee down. On the act of drawing her hand back, Luo Yibei suddenly stretched over.
He was trying to take the cup and incidentally, the two’s hands brushed each other’s at the fingertips. The warmth of his fingers as a matter of course passed on through her senses.
Fang Chixia froze and retracted her hand in panic.
It hinted at her fear of being associated with him, mimicing one’s dislike of germs.
An action that made Luo Yibei’s face, which was focused on a document on the table, slowly lifted up.
“I’m going out first!” Fang Chixia held up the tray to her chest and turned around in an attempt to escape. However, Luo Yibei responded, “Did I say you can go?”
Fang Chixia’s spine stiffened. She looked back, “Is there anything else?”
“The coffee is too hot.” Luo Yibei scowled at the coffee on the table and then met her gaze once more.
He was asking her to find a way to speed up the cooling.
Fang Chixia had the inkling that he was deliberately playing tricks on her. She was annoyed at her but whenever both of them were in the company, she always loses her temper with him.
She retraceds her steps and stood in front of him. She held a folder and gently helped him fan the cup.
Xiao Zuo was left standing behind her with his head cocked to the side, his eyes never leaving the two.
“What are you looking at?” Luo Yibei squinted at him and asked blankly.
“Nothing.” Xiao Zuo smiled at him and carelessly skipped towards the sofa. He sat his butt down but his eyes remained on Fang Chixia.
He was actually worried that she would be bullied here. So, he always trailed behind her, including entering the office.
However, his concern has never been noticed by Fang Chixia.
Fang Chixia has always had her guard up around him, afraid that he would notice unusual with her and Luo Yibei. There’s no need to guess, that everybody would know afterwards.
She tracked his movements at the corner of her eyes and remained wary of her actions.
In the meanwhile, whether Luo Yibei didn’t mind Xiao Zuo seeing something or he wanted to embarrass her, while she was fanning the cup of coffee, his hand suddenly took up her other hand and began playing with it.
Fang Chixia was positioned by the desk. Her idle hand was left on the side, a direction not visible to Xiao Zuo.
Luo Yibei sloppily fiddled with her fingers one by one. She wasn’t sure if it was intentional or not, but suddenly, a light stroke took place in the palm of her hand.
