At the entrance of the royal palace.
There were throngs of people gathered, they were a mix of spirit chefs coming to register and commoners coming to enjoy the event.
The rising sun was shining at the city gates, the time was about seven or eight in the morning. A row of palace guards ran out in a neat line from within the royal palace. Their commander at the head of the line shouted, "Those who wish to register for the selection, please queue up neatly in a straight line, those who are not relevant, go over to one side…"
The observers were quick to react and obediently followed the orders.
Only the spirit chefs who wished to participate remained.
About a few hundred of them in total.
Ranging from men to women and of all ages, they lined up in neat rows.
Huan Qing Yan was within one of the rows, her head servant Lou Qiao within the tight crowd shouted, "Miss! You can do it!"
Huan Qing Yan's new figure and appearance were already catching people's attention but now, after Lou Qiao's cheer, she could feel even more people placing their gaze on her.
Before, due to the large crowd and movement, not many people paid attention to her. Now that everyone had retreated to the side and with the spirit chefs numbering only in the few hundreds lining up in neat rows, her current position of being in the center of the formation made her stand out much more than before.
"Is that beautiful and young lady really a spirit chef?
"This is a spirit chef selection and not a concubine selection, why is such a beautiful little bride here?"
Huan Qing Yan continued to push her chest out and lift her head. Continue to praise her, her appearance rating is high, so what if she is stubborn!
Suddenly, a commotion happened within the crowd, the people who were looking at her began to look behind them and suddenly exclaimed sounds of surprise.
"Isn't that Lord Ninth Prince? Lord Ninth Prince also came to see the show? Eh, that little bride beside him is also very beautiful!"
"There's rumors spreading over the past few days that Lord Ninth Prince snatched an engaged woman and brought her back to his estate. Can that person be her…"
"Pui! Snatch? Does a person like Lord Ninth Prince need to snatch a woman? That woman must have used some method to seduce Lord Ninth Prince…"
"To speak so loudly, are all of you tired of living? What if Lord Ninth Prince hears you and drags you all into prison."
With that, the volume of these voices toned down greatly.
Huan Qing Yan also looked at their topic of discussion, a young girl in yellow was walking towards Huan Qing Yan to join the team of spirit masters. Her slender figure was giving off an alluring charm that only certain women would emit.
Huan Meng Yue!
It had only been a few days and the young inexperienced girl was now emitting the charms of a mature woman.
Since Huan Qing Yan had heard the conversations, she believed Huan Meng Yue would have also heard them. Yet Huan Meng Yue continued to display a light smile, what a true talent in sophisticated shrewdness.
Beside her was Bai Cheng Feng in luxurious clothes, accompanying her with unrestrained deep affection.
That look caused Huan Qing Yan to feel extremely uncomfortable.
This feeling of discomfort was from the reincarnated girl.
"See how this cheating couple is flirting with each other! Repulsive!" The reincarnated girl scolded within her mind.
Huan Qing Yan said, "So you still could not let go of that trash of a man?"
"How could I let him go! Bai Cheng Feng caused me so much misery, I will never forgive him…" The reincarnated girl said with gritted teeth.
"Then I am relieved, a trash like him is not worth our attention, that b*tch will also be punished by the heavens soon."
The reincarnated girl also remained silent.
Huan Qing Yan just managed to adjust her emotion when she heard the gentle voice of Huan Meng Yue, "Isn't this the Young Mistress? So Young Mistress also came for the selection? What a great coincidence."
