Chapter 95 — Snow White in a Dark Fairy Tale (23)
The arrival of the Queen made Snow White giddy with happiness, even the progress bar above her head risen for five more point.
“Mother.” Snow White lightly furled her red lips, a faint red emerged on her usually white cheeks as her black eyes glimmered while fixedly gazing at the Queen.
Shen Mubai’s thoughts flew far away. After realizing from last time that she could rise the progress bar by coming to Snow White, she frequently ran to meet her. At the very beginning, it only rose little by little, but afterwards, the progress became too small to be mentioned. One should know that Snow White’s palace was really far, and for her doing such laborious work day after day like this wasn’t easy at all ah, so whenever she looked at the slow progress, she couldn’t help but became somewhat sluggish.
Now, this five points were simply like a meat pie that fell from heaven, making Shen Mubai’s entire body felt dizzy and giddy at the same time.
When she didn’t get any respond back from the Queen, Snow White’s eyes dimmed, her sight clearly staring blankly at the charming Queen in front of her as she used a soft and gentle voice to say, “Mother.”
“En?” Shen Mubai answered subconsciously.
Snow White’s gaily-colored red lips slightly curved up, “What is mother thinking about?”
Shen Mubai didn’t pay much attention to the expression on Snow White’s face as she’s still drowning in the giddiness from the unexpected pleasant surprise, “ En… I’m wondering of what we should eat for today’s lunch.”
A smiling expression flitted across her obsidian eyes as she promptly went closer. The faint crimson color on her face still remained painted on her soft cheeks while Snow White said gently, “Then, has mother decided?”
Shen Mubai thought for a while, “Beef steak.”
And so the Queen decided to eat beef steak for lunch.
Although she’s inside the world of fairy tale, but the food here didn’t have much difference from the original western food, the exquisite food and elegant plating still exist. Except for the main course, the other food’s quantity were quite small, but after adding them up together, the portion could be called a bit overwhelming. However, not long before eating lunch, a big string of grapes already fell into Shen Mubai’s stomach pit, so she became too full after only eating half of the steak.
After putting down the tableware aside, Shen Mubai couldn’t endure letting out a tiny hiccup.
However, right at this time, Snow White was lifting her head up and looked at her.
Shen Mubai, “…” can I start my life over?
Just when she wanted to adjust her expression to remedy the embarassing situation, Snow White hung down her eyes, facing the meal on the Queen’s plate, then bit her red petal-like lips while bashfully said, “Mother, could Snow White finish your meal?”
Ha? Shen Mubai felt she became stupid for a while that she even started doubting her own hearing.
Perhaps she became aware of the Queen’s complicated expression, Snow White lifted her head up again, a shy smile appeared on her face as she said, “Snow White just happen to want to taste the beef steak’s flavour.”
Shen Mubai thought that Snow White usually finished all of her meal every time they eat, and she suddenly have a realization, the princess couldn’t bear wasting things, she’s just like a Cinderella ah.
With trembling eyelashes, Snow White drooped down her head as her voice dropped, “Is it not allowed? Queen Mother…”
Shen Mubai really was too weak at the sight of Snow White’s pitiful expression, but to preserve her character’s design, she still tried to show an impatient look, “Just eat if you want to eat, although if you just want to eat something like a beefsteak, it’s better to let the kitchen cook a new one over.”
“That’s not the same…” Snow White hung down her eyes, her voice was a little bit impatient.
What’s not the same? Shen Mubai thought in vain, and afterwards, she wore a disdainful mask and shoved the meal plate over to Snow White.
Snow White’s expression immediately changed into one of happiness and bashfulness, she said in a gentle tone, “Thank you, Mother.”
