Cindy didn’t say anything in the beginning because even she had to admit that she was a noob. However, it went too far in the end. Hey, even if I am a noob, why are you just targeting me alone? After suffering another death in the game, she snorted and slammed her phone on the couch. “One more word and I’ll AFK.”
Ian didn’t look at her, but a smile tugged at his lips. If someone were to see him from the side, they’d know he was smiling.
Aurora didn’t notice what they were doing, but as soon as Cindy said she’d stop playing, Aurora stopped her. “Oh, please don’t do that. Get back to the game, quickly.”
This time, Ian laughed, and he took a second to glance at Cindy. “Alright, fine. I’ll stop, so you play.” He sounded like he was giving in, but for the most part, he was just trying to coax her, since he sounded gentle and loving.
Cindy was annoyed, but Ian was smiling too kindly for her to do anything about it. A few moments later, she snorted and turned her head away. Cindy picked her phone up, but her hero was still waiting to respawn. On the other hand, Ian was fighting with the enemy. Cindy pursed her lips. So what if you’re good at gaming? You’re not good at anything else.
Ian quieted down after Cindy blew her top, and he said nothing more.
