Xiao Bojian was still standing in the same spot. Within just three steps, Heir Zheng made it to his side and tried to strike up a conversation. â€śSenior Xiao, guess whatâ€™s happening across the pond? Haha, itâ€™s really lively! I didnâ€™t think something so interesting would happen at Old Marquis Dingyuanâ€™s longevity feast. I havenâ€™t made this trip in vain!â€ť
If it werenâ€™t for the fact that the crowd over there was entirely female and that Heir Zheng wasnâ€™t engaged yet, he would probably have gone over to take a look himself, thanks to his busybody nature.
Xiao Bojian glanced calmly at Heir Zheng. His features were already finer than a womanâ€™s, but now that he was pressing his already thin lips together, the combination of his expression and beauty made him look as if he was holding back his desire. Even as a straight man himself, Heir Zheng was almost dazzled by that scene.
â€śHeir Zheng, please get straight to the point. I dislike beating around the bush.â€ť
Heir Zheng wasnâ€™t put off by Xiao Bojianâ€™s cold attitude. He was used to his seniorâ€™s icy chill and seeming disinterest in everything, so he thought there was no point in teasing him anyway. He explained everything that had happened to Xiao Bojian immediately.
When he began to speak of the more exciting parts, Heir Zheng would even tsk in admiration.
â€śThatâ€™s right, speaking of this Third Young Madam from House Jingâ€™an, wasnâ€™t she the one who made those raindrop mochis that Grandmother brought back for us a few days ago? Since she could make desserts like those, these longevity peach buns must be nothing to her. Haha! Madam Huangâ€™s going to lose terribly today. I really canâ€™t wait to see the annoyed expression on her face!â€ť
A huge wave of emotion rose within Xiao Bojianâ€™s chest, even as he appeared calm while listening to Heir Zhengâ€™s words.
His thin lips pressed together again, almost forming a straight line. His slender fingers grasping the railing of the veranda also tightened.
Even more thoughts were swirling inside his head.
How on earth had Lianâ€™er provoked Imperial Princess Leyao? It was clear that the whole incident was a trap. Zou Yuanqin, Imperial Princess Leyao, and Madam Huang were all on the same side.
What was that Lady Yang plotting to push Lianâ€™er into the thick of things like that?
And that He Changdi!
Since he had already married her, why had he treated her that way? That kind of man didnâ€™t deserve to have Lianâ€™er!
A storm was brewing in Xiao Bojianâ€™s almond-shaped eyes as his heart clenched tightly. He hated himself a little for not having any power. He couldnâ€™t even help Chu Lian when she was in need of help, and he could only let her face those troubles on her own.
Since He Sanlang wasnâ€™t worthy of her, then donâ€™t blame him for stealing her back!
All these people who were making trouble for Lianâ€™er todayâ€¦ he would pay them back in the future!
Meanwhile, Chu Lian was busy teaching her two maidservants how to knead the dough in the kitchen. If she were able to hear Xiao Bojianâ€™s current thoughts, she would surely roll her eyes at him.
She would even offer him a reply: â€śShoo, go stand somewhere else. Donâ€™t interfere with my moneymaking.â€ť
Does your mum know how warped your thinking is?
Unfortunately, Chu Lian didnâ€™t know of what was going on in Xiao Bojianâ€™s mind. She was busy as a bee in the kitchen.
The four senior servants who had followed her here were Madam Huang and Lady Yangâ€™s people. None of them could help in making the buns.
Since Deâ€™an Restaurantâ€™s Mr Wang had made the longevity peach buns in this exact kitchen a while ago, she didnâ€™t lack any of the necessary ingredients.
With Xiyan and Wenqing helping her, Chu Lian could speed up her cooking.
At first, the four senior servants had kept a close eye on the proceedings from the side. Madam Huangâ€™s senior servants had even seemed to have grown eyes on the top of their head from all their staring. However, as time passed, the senior servantsâ€™ eyes all widened; Madam Huangâ€™s servants were so anxious that cold sweat started appearing on their bodies.
However, they couldnâ€™t leave at all due to Lady Yangâ€™s servants watching them.
