Boris took a large sip of whine as he watched the sparks fly at the table. He was starting to become annoyed at the unmistakable tension at the table, and he was quite off-put by Cecile's insulting behavior. His stress was making him much less patient than usual. One second longer and he probably would have butted in to make them stop.. But when he saw the enormous tray of food that Pau had brought for them, he couldn't help but breathe a happy sigh of relief. Hopefully everyone will calm down and enjoy the food now, he thought.
"What a beautiful assortment of foods, Pau! Thank you so much." He said while setting a fabric napkin on his lap. He then took a bite and smiled, happily enjoying the taste of the food.
