Gu Zheng leaned against the chair and pushed the lunch box toward Qiao Xi.
Qiao Xi: “…”
Her gaze lingered on Gu Zheng’s lips.
Alright, she admitted that her appetite had changed. In the past, the food she ate was always bitter no matter what it was and she eventually got used to it. However, after discovering that she could enjoy food again if she kissed Gu Zheng, she felt that eating bitter dishes was simply the most painful torture in the world!
It was just that recently, Gu Zheng had been throwing a tantrum and she did not dare to touch him…
“Eat. Don’t you want to eat?” Gu Zheng knocked on the table impatiently.
Qiao Xi thought for three seconds before suddenly raising her head to reveal a smile. “Do you want a kiss?”
Such delicious food was right in front of her, so of course, she could not resist the temptation. She reached out her little hand to Gu Zheng.
Gu Zheng’s gaze was cold as he let out a snort. “Say that again?”
Qiao Xi swallowed her saliva and subconsciously poked the rice in the lunch box with a pair of chopsticks. Gu Zheng had been too difficult recently, so she was hesitant to continue.
She looked at the glutinous rice balls and recalled how soft and sweet they were. She closed her eyes and opened her mouth, asking firmly, “I said, do you want a kiss?”
Gu Zheng chuckled. “I’m sorry, I won’t kiss you.”
Qiao Xi: “!”
‘Are you kidding me?!
‘Do you have the final say?!’
Qiao Xi moved past the small table and pressed against Gu Zheng’s shoulder with one hand. She lowered her head and pressed her red lips against the man’s thin lips without hesitation!
Her movements were fierce and aggressive, but her lips were unbelievably soft.
Each breath brought with it a minty coolness.
Gu Zheng remained motionless with his back against the leather seat, allowing Qiao Xi to go wild. His long eyelashes slightly lowered, hiding the flash of light in his dark eyes.
Qiao Xi did not know anything about kissing. She only knew how to nibble on Gu Zheng’s thin lips. When she failed to control her strength, the man could not help but let out a muffled groan.
His voice was low and slightly hoarse. Qiao Xi let go as if she had been electrocuted.
Blood slowly seeped out from the corner of Gu Zheng’s mouth.
Qiao Xi: “…”
Gu Zheng raised his hand and touched the corner of his lips. The slight stinging pain caused him to frown, and the gaze he shot at Qiao Xi carried some complaint and displeasure.
Qiao Xi awkwardly played with her hair. “Err, it was an accident… An accident.”
Gu Zheng smiled ambiguously. “An accident?”
Song Shiyu, who had watched the whole process, was speechless.
F*ck, he was going blind!
Fortunately, Gu Zheng did not say anything else after that. Qiao Xi silently returned to her seat and picked up her chopsticks to eat.
Gu Zheng sat opposite her and watched as the woman ate like a hamster. Her cheeks were all puffed up, and her chopsticks kept reaching for the lunch box. She ate very quickly, but it did not make her look like she was in a sorry state.
She seemed to have realized that Gu Zheng was not eating. While stuffing food into her mouth, she did not forget to put some food into Gu Zheng’s bowl as well.
Gu Zheng lowered his head and looked at the pile of dishes in front of him. He unbuttoned his sleeves with one hand, picked up the chopsticks by the side with his well-defined fingers, and slowly ate.
For a moment, the back seat was so quiet that one could only hear the sounds of them chewing their food.
At two in the afternoon, Qiao Xi had her fill and returned backstage.
At this moment, the participants backstage were discussing the competition’s topic.
“I heard that the topic this time was set by Master Gu Shan!”
“Ahhhh, no wonder it’s so difficult. I think I’m going to be in last place!”
“I feel so wronged. When I saw the topic, I started to doubt if I’m suitable for fashion design.”
“But Qiao Rou definitely won’t feel pressured, right? After all, she’s Master Gu Shan’s disciple. I’m so envious of her. I also want Master Gu Shan’s guidance!”
Qiao Rou smiled embarrassedly. “To be honest, I was also stunned when I saw the topic.”
“Hey, don’t be humble. As Master Gu Shan’s disciple, you must be familiar with Master Gu Shan’s way of doing things. No matter how muddled you are, you’ll still do better than us.”
The girl sounded envious.
Seeing that everyone was in low spirits, Qiao Rou began talking about something else. “Where’s my sister? I don’t see her anywhere.”
After a moment of silence, everyone curled their lips in disdain.
“I didn’t see her during the competition just now. She probably ran away at the last minute.”
“Haha, it’s understandable for her to run away at the last minute. After all, she came from that kind of environment. She’s different from us.”
Knowing that Qiao Xi had given up, their spirits lifted once more.
Qiao Rou stopped them, softly saying, “Don’t say that, everyone. My sister is very hardworking and likes to design… Everyone has the right to pursue their dreams. We shouldn’t mock someone who’s chasing after their dreams.”
“Hahaha, Qiao Rou, you should know that there’s a difference between having dreams and having wishful thinking..” Someone mercilessly mocked.
