Gu Mengmeng hesitated for a moment. She could actually just ask Elvis or Barete to pull her from below or simply just jump down on her own. But the way she climbed up was in such an imposing manner. If she called someone to catch her, wouldn’t that be too shameful? She, Gu Mengmeng, would never do something like that – starting off with such vigor but ending poorly.
Thus, Gu Mengmeng bit the leaf in her mouth and backtracked a little by a little slowly in an attempt to return the same way. However, she had no eyes grown on the back of her head after all. The end of Gu Mengmeng’s dress was caught by a branch as thick as an arm, causing her to fall from the tree after losing her balance.
Fortunately, Gu Mengmeng had fast reflexes, and she hugged onto the tree branch with both arms as tightly as she could, preventing her from kissing the ground.
Though Gu Mengmeng was biting onto the leaf, this fall did not force her to release it. It was not due to this leaf being so important, it was just that she was unable to react amidst all the chaos.
Elvis stepped forward in front of Gu Mengmeng. He was now standing where her belly button was and lifting his head to glance at Gu Mengmeng who was grabbing onto the branch for dear life with a leaf in her mouth.
She was stuck in an ugly situation. There were a few patches of peeling on her snow white rabbit-skin dress and her initial pale and charming little face was filled with dirt, giving off a filthy look. Now, she resembled a wild monkey dangling from a tree more, one that could climb up but could not get down.
Elvis knew that females liked to do things without rhyme or reason and he had seen many other cases more baffling than what Gu Mengmeng did. But it was different this time. He was neither fed up nor disdained. Instead, he felt his blood boil and anger creeped in. The leaf in her mouth was exceptionally unpleasant to look at.
Just as he was about to lose his temper, he looked up to see Gu Mengmeng’s arm being grazed and fresh red blood oozing out, filling the air with her scent. What a heart aching scene.
The burning fire in Elvis was put out upon the pitiful sight of Gu Mengmeng. In the end, it ended in smoke, which left together with Elvis’s sigh.
Opening his arms wide, Elvis looked at Gu Mengmeng and said, “Come down, I will catch you.”
Gu Mengmeng shook her head while bitting the leaf. That fall was really scary but after hanging like this for a while, she had already calmed down. She was just at most one metre away from the floor. She would not get injured from jumping down herself.
If it was like this, she would not need Elvis to catch her from below. Or else, the facade put on earlier would have gone to waste.
Just as Gu Mengmeng was contemplating which suave pose to use upon jumping to salvage her dignity, Elvis frowned and lifted himself slightly, leaping up in a perfect arc. He grabbed the branch Gu Mengmeng was holding onto easily and then bent that thick branch with his strength in a graceful and calm manner, as if he just lightly touched it.
Elvis stood on the ground, pulling the branch towards him until Gu Mengmeng’s sight was on the same level as him. Staring at Gu Mengmeng’s innocent eyes that were filled with astonishment and worship, he unexpectedly felt a sense of enjoyment and the rare sight of the sides of his mouth creeping up surfaced. A breathtaking visual out of this world was sent into Gu Mengmeng’s sight, spewing the scent of his male hormones into her nose as he mocked her in amusement, “Do you like this branch that much? How about breaking it into half for you?”
