Futuristic Chef Transmigrated As MotherChapter 349 - 349 Little Child Laborer
349 Little Child Laborer
Jiang Danhe completely agreed with her. Indeed, children are always tougher than adults think.
At the dining table just now, he was almost going to step in and help them with the tasks. Fortunately, Xiaoguo kicked him in time. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have seen Zhuang Zhuang with his clarity of thoughts.
“Let’s follow them.”
Xiaoguo looked at the two figures swaying with their plates, so she brought Jiang Danhe along with her. The two of them secretly followed behind the kids like thieves.
Xiaoguo knew that Zhuang Zhuang had a strong sixth sense, so she did not dare to follow too closely behind them. It was fine as long as she followed them from afar to ensure their safety. Even so, Zhuang Zhuang was especially sensitive. From time to time, he would turn around to look behind him.
Zhuang Zhuang had been doing housework with Xiaoguo since he was young, so he was much stronger than Xiaoyi, who was the same age. In order to accommodate him, Zhuang Zhuang decided to take a break every few meters. In order to reduce Xiaoyi’s burden, he even transferred all the small plates and saucers onto his own tray.
Jiang Danhe said with stars in his eyes, “Zhuang Zhuang is really responsible. He will definitely be a good brother in the future.”
Xiaoguo turned around and glanced at him. She saw the meaningful look in his eyes and chose to ignore him. She continued following the two children.
As the two kids did not have time to change out of their outfits, their faces and attire looked very loud and flashy. That attracted the attention of many passers-by and they laughed openly at what they saw. The news spread like wildfire. Many servants were attracted by the laughter and came over to check things out.
The two of them had makeup on their faces, so they were not recognizable. Holding the stack of plates in their hands, they looked like naughty child laborers.
Some servants who were not on duty, started gathering around and teased the two of them. Within a short while, the passers-by had gathered into a big group, and many hands were reaching out to touch the chubby child laborers.
“Aiyo, look at this kid’s chubby face…”
“Not only is he fat, he feels soft too…”
“Let me feel his cheeks, let me feel them. You’re right!”
“Look, look! He even has a small belly!”
When Zhuang Zhuang heard this, he sucked in his stomach embarrassedly and tried to conceal it. Unexpectedly, his subconscious actions caused another round of exclamations.
“Look, he even knows how to suck in his stomach. It seems that he’s shy. Hahahaha…”
Initially, only one person noticed it. However, after hearing her words, everyone shifted their attention to Zhuang Zhuang’s belly. Some even reached out to pinch it.
No matter how thick-skinned Zhuang Zhuang was, he couldn’t stand being surrounded by so many girls. Everyone was touching him. He could only hold on to the tray and try to hide with much difficulty.
“Where are you going?”
Xiaoguo stopped Jiang Danhe, who was about to step forward, and asked curiously.
“I’ll go take a look.”
Jiang Danhe was feeling uneasy. Although the servants had no ill intentions, he was still worried about the boys.
“It’s fine.” Xiaoguo pulled him back and got him to return to their hiding place. “They know their limits. They wouldn’t hurt Zhuang Zhuang and Xiaoyi.”
Jiang Danhe looked over worriedly before stepping back to his hiding place.
Xiaoguo stroked his head in satisfaction. She had been stroking his hair a lot recently. Jiang Danhe was quite uncomfortable with her actions at first, but now he totally enjoys it.
Speaking of which, these servants were all the daughters of sinners. The education they had received since they were young had not disappeared because of the manual work they had done over the past few years. Although they were surrounding Zhuang Zhuang and Xiaoyi, one could tell from their feet that they were leaving some space between themselves and the boys. Therefore, the two boys were not feeling anxious at all. Instead, they were very comfortable. After all, these servants were all teenage girls.
Zhuang Zhuang probably didn’t enjoy it, but the same could not be said for Xiaoyi. With so many girls gathered around him, although he wasn’t the main character in their discussion, it was still nice to have so many girls crowd around him.
“Look at him, look at him…”
At this moment, a surprised voice sounded. The few of them finally let go of Zhuang Zhuang and turned their focus on Xiaoyi.
“He’s so sleepy that he could barely keep his eyes open. He’s still holding the tray so tightly.”
“What do you mean sleepy? I think he’s charmed…”
“Aiya, why are you so bad? He’s still a child.”
“Hmph, the child’s face is all red…”
The girls reached out to touch Xiaoyi again. They obviously did not know that the two child laborers they were ravaging were the crown prince, and the general’s eldest son.
Xiaoyi only knew how to laugh foolishly, but Zhuang Zhuang was already getting impatient. Although he was a little man, he was still a man. After being ravaged by the girls, his mentality had long collapsed. He had been kept so busy all this while. One moment, he was sucking on his cheeks, the next moment, he was sucking in his stomach. He also had to hide from the ruthless hands that tried to touch him. He was so tormented that he almost dropped the tray. His little brows were now furrowed into a tight knot.
Someone took the initiative to take the trays and send them to the kitchen for them. Xiaoguo was so shocked that she couldn’t close her mouth. How could one’s looks be used like this?
Jiang Danhe held her chin and gently helped her close her mouth. He had come across such situations countless times when he was young.
He still remembered that the young Jiang Danhe’s daily joy was derived from shopping. Each time he went out empty-handed, he would always return with a bunch of servants carrying lots of shopping bags. The truth is, he had not spent a single copper coin. The stuff in the shopping bags were all gifts from the shopkeepers who found him cute.
Hence, Jiang Danhe’s father sent money to the shopkeepers to pay for all the items. He was insistent about not taking advantage of the commoners.
Zhuang Zhuang was a little embarrassed. This didn’t feel right. It felt like he was taking advantage of the situation.
“That’s great, Zhuang Zhuang. We have less work to do!”
Xiaoyi jumped and tried to pull him back. Unexpectedly, the other party didn’t look happy at all.
“What happened to you?”
“It’s fine.” Zhuang Zhuang shook his head and looked at Xiaoyi firmly. He articulated each word carefully, “We should do our own things. We shouldn’t let others do it for us, am I right?”
“…” Xiaoyi understood immediately. His eyes lit up and he nodded. “Yes!”
The girls around them were shocked. The trays in their hands were taken back by the two children.
After thanking them, the two children walked steadfastly towards the kitchen, not noticing the surprised gazes of the servants behind them.
Xiaoyi’s heart was surging with emotions. He followed Zhuang Zhuang and strode forward aggressively. He forced himself to walk till he disappeared from the line of sight of the crowd watching them. After which, he collapsed immediately. “Zhuang Zhuang, shall we rest…”
“Got it.” Zhuang Zhuang looked at Xiaoyi helplessly, but he gave in to his friend’s request. He put down the tray and sat down on the spot.
Looking at the two boys who had started setting off again, Xiaoguo poked Jiang Danhe with her elbow. Her eyes were filled with smugness, looking like she was saying, “My son is the best!”
Jiang Danhe pinched her cheek dotingly and nodded. “Zhuang Zhuang is the best.”
Xiaoyi and Zhuang Zhuang walked around and finally arrived at the kitchen. After handing over the trays to the servants on duty, they rushed back without any delay. After finding the servants in charge of their residence, they asked for a large pot of hot water. Then, they returned to the house and brought out the new clothes and bedsheets that Jiang Danhe had handed to them.
The bathtub was in the back room of their residence. Someone was sent to pour water for them. Then, the screen was pulled out. When the servant saw the clothes and bedsheets that they had thrown out, she tried to bring them out for washing.
Fortunately, Zhuang Zhuang saw her and stopped her in time. Otherwise, they would have broken their promises.
Xiaoguo and Jiang Danhe leaned against the window like perverts and looked in. The servants were pretty attentive and knew to provide small bathtubs for the two kids. Seeing that they were safe, Xiaoguo did not go in. Instead, she watched them from outside.
At first, the two boys were seriously scrubbing their bodies, but then one of them started playing with the water. In the beginning, they sat in the tubs while playing. But later on, they stood up and splashed water at each other. They were having so much fun, and the pair standing outside the window were very amused.
The two children were in their birthday suits and chasing after each other. They did not notice the two people outside who were already laughing out loud.
