The boy immediately begged for mercy.
“I was wrong.
I thought you were sick and were not supposed to be eating candies.”
Natalia immediately retorted, “Im not a patient.
Im not sick.”
“Well, now I know.
Youre not a patient and you are allowed to have candies.” Youyou placed his palms together, looking aggrieved.
Cautiously, he gave her a wink and said, “Dont be mad, okay”
Perhaps his mischievous look finally dispelled the moodiness Natalia was feeling.
She took a deep breath, raised her eyebrows and mumbled an “uh huh”, feigning generosity.
“Alright then! I guess you didnt mean it!” As she spoke, she fixed her eyes on the box of candies the boy was holding.
She couldnt bring herself to reach for it, so she used her eyes to subtly remind him to hand over the “candy box”.
The boy watched helplessly as her eyes remained fixed on the box.
Wasnt this lass rather gullible A stranger could just come along and trick her into leaving with him, using a few candies!
Youyou deliberately raised the box, and immediately, Natalias purple eyes followed the movement of the candy box, focusing all her attention on it.
The boy could imagine the amount of drool forming in her mouth.
“Do you want some” he asked the girl.
Natalia, however, was instantly on her guard.
She was deliberately calm, trying to appear as if she didnt care.
Her throat moved as she gulped, but she was obviously ravenous.
“Thats … my candies!”
However, Youyou said solemnly, “The box might look like your box, but its not.
Besides, the candies here are mine!”
“Im not lying to you.
If you dont believe me, see for yourself.”
The boy opened the box.
Natalia looked inside and saw that none of the candy bars was hers.
Besides, these were the same soft candies she had tasted earlier, better than the ones she had hidden herself.
She looked at the candies transfixed, ravenous.
In fact, the so-called candy box was just an ordinary box, a metal box used to hold surgical instruments like those commonly seen in hospitals.
She had stolen one to hide the candies in it.
She really wanted it, but she pretended to be reserved and just stared.
The boy was terribly amused by her feigned nonchalance and had to suppress his own laughter.
“Do you want some” he asked her.
Natalia nodded at first, then blushed and quickly shook her head.
“I dont feel like eating…”
“This candy is my favorite.”
As he spoke, the boy helped himself to a candy bar and popped it into his mouth.
As he chewed, the scent of blueberries filled the air and reached the tip of Natalyas nose.
She sniffed and the aroma of the fresh fruit immediately caused her to salivate!
As though it was provoking her.
Because it was a soft candy, the sound it made when he chewed only made her salivate even more.
After the boy finished eating, he even smacked his lips and licked them.
Natalia felt as though she would drool the moment she opened her mouth.
She swallowed but said nothing, staring at him silently.
The boy laughed inwardly at this, so he casually peeled off the wrapper of a strawberry-flavored soft candy and walked over to her.
He held it and beamed at her.
“This is strawberry-flavored!”
