Duan Yanhao nodded his head seriously. “If it was for me, would I have prepared these?”
Bai Yaoyao thought about it. That was true. Duan Yanhao did not usually eat such oily and salty food.
She chewed excitedly on her chopsticks. Everything looked delicious, and she did not know what dish she should eat first.
Eventually, Duan Yanhao picked up a drumstick and placed it in her bowl. “Here, eat this. You can eat anything you want to.”
Bai Yaoyao looked at the drumstick in her bowl, and somehow, her vision started to blur. Drops of tears fell into the bowl. She tried her best to clear her vision, blinking the tears away, but to no avail.
She wanted to get her emotions under control, but no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn’t. She thought that perhaps it was due to her hunger.
Looking at Bai Yaoyao’s tear-streaked face, Duan Yanhao’s heart stirred. “Why are you crying?” Since the first time they met, she was always prone to crying.
Sometimes, she would cry for no reason. Perhaps it was the desolation on her face that pierced his heart, which made him try his best to make her happy.
After all, for such a beautiful woman to cry, it made people sympathize with her.
Bai Yaoyao sniffed her nose, and her glistening eyes shone like starlight. She gazed deeply at Duan Yanhao and said, “Duan Yanhao, you know what? You’re the first person who thought of me first during a meal.”
Hearing that statement, the stabbing pain in Duan Yanhao’s heart became more evident, as though someone was squeezing his heart tightly.
He suddenly wondered if no man really treated her well in the past. He did not know what Bai Yaoyao had been through. Who was this guy who dared to treat her so cruelly?
“Don’t cry. What’s in the past is over.”
Bai Yaoyao nodded. He’s right. It’s all in the past now.
She was trying to start over, but in front of Duan Yanhao, she felt more vulnerable to her emotions.
She wiped her tears away and said, “Don’t make fun of me.”
“If you don’t want to be made fun of, you should eat more.”
Duan Yanhao thought that since she trained so hard, she had to take more nourishment. Even though he had already ordered for the kitchen to prepare nicer dishes, according to his subordinate’s report, Bai Yaoyao still ate too little. It seemed like he still had to watch over her for a longer period.
When they were done eating, Duan Yanhao made Bai Yaoyao watch television with him, not letting her leave.
“Duan Yanhao, I should go back now. It’s getting late.”
Duan Yanhao sighed. “Bai Yaoyao, you need to know, as much as you want to train your body, you cannot train like you do. Today’s a weekend, so there won’t be any checks. You can relax a little more.”
“Duan Yanhao, how did you know that I was training?”
“How could I not know? Look at the dark circles under your eyes. If you continue in this manner, you will eventually get insomnia. I know you’re aiming to be the best, but good health is a prerequisite for work, do you understand?”
“I think I’m doing pretty well.” She didn’t think that there was anything wrong. Other than the fact that it was tough and more tiring than usual, nothing felt wrong for her.
Duan Yanhao switched off the television and took out a ladies’ coat for Bai Yaoyao from the closet. “If you can’t stay in the house, put on this coat. I will take you to the woods around the camp.”
Bai Yaoyao’s heart trembled. In this deep night, anything could happen.
Looking at Bai Yaoyao’s expression, Duan Yanhao said, “What are you thinking about? I’m just taking you outdoors to relax. I don’t wish for the female recruit that I brought in to overtire herself.”
Bai Yaoyao’s heart felt warm. She put on the coat that Duan Yanhao passed her and left for the woods with him.
