Qiao Anhao continued in embarra.s.sment, but instead of eating the prawn, she removed the sh.e.l.ls from the remaining ones.
The table was a little big, so when she placed the prawns into his bowl, she had to leave the seat slightly and stretch her hand out.
Even though Lu Jinnian was leaning against his seat while on the phone, his gaze was still focused on Qiao Anhao, especially on her expression while she munched on the prawns.
Just then, he saw her stretch her hand across the table to pa.s.s him the prawns. He froze slightly, thinking that she was going to feed him. With an indulgent expression on his face, he leaned forward with his mouth open, biting away the prawn she was about to drop in his bowl.
Qiao Anhao could distinctively feel the heat and moisture of his lips on her fingers. In just an instance, the numbing feeling disappeared together with the prawn in her hands.
She wasn't going to feed him, she was just about to put it in his bowl...
Qiao Anhao couldn't help staring at him.
When he sensed her gaze, Lu Jinnian thought that she was looking for an appreciative gesture, so he moved the phone slightly aside before silently forming the words "thank you".
Was she the type of woman to randomly feed a man food?
Even though Qiao Anhao was misunderstood, she was satisfied!
It was as though a piece of leaf had fallen into the lake in her heart, causing ripples to form and spread.
She lowered her head, her heart bursting. Reaching for the prawns, she continued to remove the sh.e.l.ls seriously. When she was finished with on, she stretched her hand out to place it into Lu Jinnian's bowl, but this time, it was bit away by him once again.
The table was silent with only an occasional sentence from Lu Jinnian to the person on the phone. Towards the end, the person sent him a video, allowing Lu Jinnian to see the contents on his computer. While he monitored his screen, he leaned over to s.n.a.t.c.h away the food from Qiao Anhao whenever her hand stretched over. Soon, it became a habit, and he didn't even have to look to know where the prawns would be.
As Qiao Anhao saw his fluid movements, she looked back down in her bowl, at the last prawn, her eyes moving back and forth between his face and the bowl. She looked towards the prawn sh.e.l.l at the side and decided to tease him a little. Reaching out with her hand once more, she pa.s.sed a sh.e.l.l over.
Out of habit, Lu Jinnian leaned over to nib on the food, but after taking a few chews, he seemed to have realized that something was wrong, and frowning, he spat it out. Lifting his head , he saw Qiao Anhao smiling cheekily back at him, the last prawn dangling between her fingers.
She stretched out her fingers once more, and he lowered his head to get the prawn, his features relax. After another two sentences, he hung up, turning back to look at Qiao Anhao. She was trying to get a tissue out of the packet, but since she only had one clean hand, she couldn't take it out no matter how hard she tried. Lifting her head to look at Lu Jinnian, she said, "Help me with this."
Lu Jinnian pulled a wet tissue out, but instead of pa.s.sing it to her, he naturally reached over to help her wipe the hand clean.
Qiao Anhao lowered her lashes to look as Lu Jinnian wiping her fingers, not rejecting his actions.
Even though she knew that their actions were intimate and ambiguous, she had no clue as to what he was thinking. Even so, she, who had been loving him for the past thirteen years, was satisfied with the intimacy.
