After that, whenever he was at an appropriate distance, Young Master Ya would return to his celestial-like noble poise, but whenever he inched slightly closer, the knife-like gaze would reach him immediately.
Therefore, he no longer dared to stay to close to Huan Qing Yan. This caused him to overlook some of the procedure as he was unable to see what Huan Qing Yan was doing clearly, and this led to Huan Qing Yan having to repeat the whole procedure twice.
“You got it?” Huan Qing Yan had planned to teach two dishes today but, in the end, she had to repeatedly teach a single dish for five times…
Chef Yan was also covered in cold sweat as he learnt; he felt that it was likely due to Ji Mo Ya’s unexpected gazing, but he dared not complain about it.
“I seemed to have… got all of it?” He replied unsurely.
“If we continue, this young master can change
my profession to a spirit chef as well,” Ji Mo Ya looked at the five cleaned plates in front of him.
Chef Yan’s forehead was rolling with sweat, “Yes, indeed! Young Master Ya has lectured well, this lowly one’s talent is too poor.”
Huan Qing Yan swept a gaze at Ji Mo Ya, “Young Master Ya, do you have something else to do? If so, you can just leave first!”
She spoke her mind too quickly without thought.
After Huan Qing Yan spoke, she immediately felt that she had made a mistake; Ji Mo Ya was someone of a high standing, yet she dared to use a lecturing tone at him. She must be tired of living.
She peeked at Ji Mo Ya with a small sense of guilty conscience.
Someone continued to maintain his noble and celestial-like poise, and surprisingly, he did not get angry. Rather, he replied in a good mood, “Travelling around to see new things is this
this Young Master’s business.”
Those words meant, that looking at her cooking was also his business!
Huan Qing Yan did not know if she should laugh or cry, it looked like she could forget about teaching the second dish today, so she turned towards Chef Yan and said, “I will just teach one dish today then, it is still busy outside, and I should not delay you any longer. I will teach you again when I am free, if I am unable to find time, I will write down the recipe and get someone to deliver it to you.”
Chef Yan was also greatly relieved as he quickly departed.
Huan Qing Yan and Ji Mo Ya left the Huan Clan Restaurant using the back gate as well.
Huan Qing Yan then went to the Hou Clan’s General Goods Store to purchase some ingredients. These were required to cook the muteness curing recipe. With a source of spirit stones in hand now,
hand now, she could now buy things without feeling painful.
Ji Mo Ya also went along, but this time they took the front entrance.
Earlier on, they were worried that their arrival would affect the business of the restaurant, so they took the back gate.
Huan Qing Yan was very lucky. She managed to secure most of the ingredients she required and only a small handful of the ingredients she needed was left.
One of the main ingredients was the Ocean Life Flower. Huan Qing Yan silently encouraged herself that she must use everything she could muster and try her best to secure one of the top three spots.
Suddenly, Ji Mo Ya the tag-long suddenly changed his expression; he said with a frown, “There’s trouble at the Huan Estate.”
Huan Qing Yan was unable to react in time and said, “What?”
“Let’s go have a look.”
As Ji Mo Ya spoke, he walked out with large strides.
Huan Qing Yan quickly followed.
Outside, Ji Mo Ya Ji Mo Ya immediately threw out a luxurious flying carriage. Two white birds with long wings appeared and flower crowns appeared. At each of their backs was a very long feather tail; their appearance was exceptionally majestic.
As Huan Qing Yan was awestruck at what she saw, Ji Mo Ya had already lifted her and brought her into the carriage.
Very quickly, the duo arrived at the sky above the Huan Estate…
Huan Qing Yan was wide-eyed and startled.
If she did not take a detailed look, she would not have known that this was the once stylish and beautiful main courtyard of the Huan Estate!
Every building within the estate was damaged. They seemed to have been pulled apart forcefully and turned into a pile of rubble. The plants within the garden had been completely removed, revealing three feet of earth, but the place that was damaged the most was the main building where Huan Bei Ming used to stay!
