Chapter 34: You made this?
“Eh?! Cough cough. Umm.. did I say that before? How come I don’t remember? You must have recalled wrongly!?”
Hearing Xiao Mu Zi’s question, Le Yao Yao could only laugh awkwardly as she try to bluff her way out.
After all, she had examined this body before.
Based on what Xiao Mu Zi had told her before, the owner of this body was an orphan with a very poor background.
But she discovered that the owner of this body had soft and delicate skin. In addition, her hands were white and super smooth. With one look, it was obvious that the owner had been pampered all her life. If not, she definitely wouldn’t have such nice hands!
So, Le Yao Yao highly doubted what Xiao Mu Zi had told her.
Then again, she had no clue who the real owner really was.
But right now was not the time to think of this. Her current mission was to figure out what type of dish to make that would satisfy the picky Prince.
Honestly, in her previous life, aside from cooking, she hadn’t done any chores.
Because, she was a foodie! Without any cooking skills, that would simply not be acceptable.
She especially enjoyed eating sour spicy type of foods. So whenever she was home, she would cook her favourite dishes.
Hence, right now, preparing a few dishes was an extremely easy task for her.
So, after Le Yao Yao picked up the ingredients she needed, she ordered Xiao Mu Zi and Cook Li to wash them. Then, she picked up the spatula and began to cook.
Since she wasn’t sure whether her dish would please the Prince, she decided to prepare a few more dishes. The more choices she offered, the more likely he would find something he liked, right?
Within an hour, Le Yao Yao had finished preparing a few dishes.
Everyone in the kitchen were skeptical. It seemed absurd that a little eunuch was cooking while Cook Li was being the helper. Everyone stopped working on their tasks as they focused all their attention on the little eunuch.
Based on everyone’s observations, they could tell that although the little eunuch was tiny, he appeared to be very familiar with cooking. There was no clumsiness. In fact, he actually possessed a bit of a cook boss aura.
The sound of the spatula frying the vegetables and meats began. Soon, everyone could smell a very strong but sweet aroma of a sour spicy dish. It caused everyone’s stomachs to grumble.
If they listened closely, they would probably hear the staffs sucking their drools as well….
Originally, Cook Li didn’t place much hope on Le Yao Yao. But seeing how Le Yao Yao was actually good, his uneasy heart began to relax. His dishes smelled heavenly and the aroma was fresh and strong.
He couldn’t help but smile.
By the time Le Yao Yao had returned back to the Prince’s residence, Leng Jun Yu still had the exact same pose. He still had one hand supporting his lower jaw, while the other hand was tapping lightly against the table.
But through his black pupils, it was obvious that his patience was running low. It wasn’t until an eunuch had announced the arrival of Le Yao Yao that he got rid of that look. Now, his focus was on Le Yao Yao.
Le Yao Yao and a few others each carried a dish as they gently placed it on the round table in front of Leng Jun Yu.
Leng Jun Yu’s eyes couldn’t help but flicker when he saw the colourful, sweet smelling dishes in front of him. They all carried a strong sour and spicy aroma. His eyes showed a bit of disbelief as he turned to gaze at Le Yao Yao. His red lips opened and his hoarse sexy voice rang,
“You made everything?”
“To respond to the Prince, yes. Your servant made all these dishes.” Le Yao Yao held back her glance as she respectfully replied.
Leng Jun Yu lightly raised his fine brows. Then, he randomly pointed to a dish and asked, “What dish is this?”
“To respond to the Prince, this is sour spicy tofu. It will increase your appetite. This dish is mixed with tomatoes and tofu. It is most suitable for the summer weather.”
Since Leng Jun Yu asked, Le Yao Yao immediately replied. Initially, she was avoiding eye contact, but now, she was looking at the Prince. In her eyes, hope was glistening.
She prepared this dish because Cook Li said the Prince had a lack of appetite these days. Also, it was almost summer, the weather was slowly heating up. Eating sour and spicy dishes during the summer time will definitely help increase one’s appetite. Now, the only issue was whether the dish would satisfy Prince Rui.
Hearing Le Yao Yao’s response, Leng Jun Yu slightly knitted his sword-like brows.
After all, he didn’t know that tofu and tomatoes could be cooked together. He also wasn’t sure whether it would taste good. So, he was hesitating.
But, when he saw that hopeful look in Le Yao Yao’s bright eyes, it made his heart skip a beat. Subconsciously, he used his jade chopsticks and picked up a piece of to try.
When it entered his mouth, it tasted sour and spicy. The tofu was extremely fresh. Even after swallowing it, the savory taste lingered in his mouth.
Leng Jun Yu lightly chewed on the tofu. His scrunched up brows began to loosen up.
“Prince Rui, does this dish satisfy you?”
Seeing how Leng Jun Yu’s brows relaxed, Le Yao Yao was beaming as she carefully asked.
Leng Jun Yu could hear how careful Le Yao Yao was questioning him. He slowly looked up to watch her expression.
He was faced with the little eunuch’s beaming face. He had a pair of beautiful eyes; they were huge and round. They looked almost like a pair of black gemstones. So stunning.
No one would have the heart to reject someone like him.
“Eh… only passable…..”
Le Yao Yao couldn’t help but pout her red lips as disappointment showed in her eyes. Then, she pointed to another dish right away.
“Prince Rui, please try this dish! It’s sweet and sour chicken. It’s good!”
Since Le Yao Yao was so enthusiastic, Leng Jun Yu didn’t say anything else as he picked up a piece and began quietly chewing it in his mouth.
Once again, Le Yao Yao focused all her attention on Prince Rui’s face. She didn’t want to miss a single expression. As he elegantly used his jade chopsticks, she couldn’t help but sigh on the inside.
A royalty was truly a royalty. Every gesture looked so natural and classy. Sadly, she couldn’t detect any joyfulness from his face. Seeing this, Le Yao Yao was extremely sad.
But she wasn’t disheartened. She reached out and used another pair of chopsticks to pick up a piece from every dish and placed it in Prince Rui’s golden bowl. She wanted him to try every dish.
Everyone was stunned by Le Yao Yao’s open gesture. They couldn’t believe it.
Even the chief manager couldn’t help but frown.
Because, in the Prince residence’s, everyone knew that aside from the chief manager, the Prince hated having people around him while he was eating.
So, Le Yao Yao’s bold action caused everyone to worry for her. They all had cold sweats running down their backs as they silently prayed for her.
