1273 I’ll Leave First
As soon as he finished speaking, Chi Yang turned around and walked out of the kitchen. When he turned around and closed the door, he didn’t forget to smile and encourage the confused Bai Zhou inside. “Master, all the best!”
The door closed with a bang.
Bai Zhou stood in the middle of the kitchen and looked around as if he had been abandoned. It was no exaggeration to say that ever since he bought this apartment…
This was his…
This place called…
Because Chi Yang usually prepared everything related to food and drinks and gave them to him, he had never entered the kitchen, let alone cooked!
This was the first time he had seen a gas stove with fire.
In the living room, when she heard the door close, Chi Lian said without looking up, “Aren’t you afraid that he’ll burn the kitchen?”
“So be it. He can renovate it for me.” Chi Yang smiled and said, “You didn’t see the expression on Master’s face just now. He was so pitiful.”
“You don’t have to sympathize with him. When he’s done, we’ll be the pitiful ones,” Chi Lian said.
As soon as he finished speaking, the doorbell rang. The two of them looked at each other. Chi Yang stood up and opened the door. “The Sect Master and Lord Si Yue must be here!”
The door opened and Jian Ai appeared outside with a smile. When she saw Chi Yang, she couldn’t help but say excitedly, “What new dish did you study again? I’ve been looking forward to it since the moment I received the invitation to taste the dishes!”
As she spoke, Jian Ai entered the house.
Chi Yang looked at the empty corridor behind her and asked in surprise, “Where’s Lord Si Yue?”
“He’s on duty. He’ll be here later!” Jian Ai said casually.
As soon as she finished speaking, she heard a bang from the kitchen. Something had fallen to the ground.
Jian Ai was shocked and subconsciously looked at Chi Lian. “Who’s inside?”
Chi Lian sighed softly and looked at Jian Ai. “Sect Master, it’s not Chi Yang who’s cooking today, but Bai Zhou. He asked you here to try his dishes!”
“What? Bai Zhou’s cooking?” Jian Ai exclaimed.
Chi Yang and Chi Lian nodded and said in unison, “That’s right. He’s cooking!”
“Ah… I just remembered I have something on, so I’ll take my leave first!” Jian Ai said and turned around to leave.
However, Chi Yang pulled her back. Chi Yang said, “Sect Master, you can’t leave. Our ancient sect has to share blessings and difficulties!”
Jian Ai’s face darkened. She looked at Chi Yang and said, “Yes, so how can I bear to let Si Yue be on duty alone? I have to go back and help Si Yue sweep the floor. I’ll take my leave first!”
What a joke. Let her eat Bai Zhou’s dishes? Could Bai Zhou distinguish between oil, salt, sauce, and vinegar? Not to mention that he could not distinguish between them, but he had probably never seen these seasonings before!
It was not that Jian Ai was exaggerating, but Bai Zhou’s identity was like this.
He was a second-generation heir of the Qiusi royal family. Since he was young, he had probably never even seen what the kitchen looked like, right? If not because he had to go to the toilet himself, he would not have needed to go to the toilet at all!
“Sect Master, this is a blow to Bai Zhou’s enthusiasm. If he knows you came and left, he will feel inferior!” Chi Lian stroked the snake’s head and looked at Jian Ai.
Jian Ai stopped in her tracks and turned around to look at Chi Lian in surprise. Then, she looked at the siblings, who were clinging to her. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “How is this enthusiasm? It can’t even cross realms…”
As soon as she finished speaking, Jian Ai revealed a suspicious expression. “Why did the two of you agree to let him cook for no reason? You even dragged me here to eat! Isn’t it good to be alive?”
Chi Lian and Chi Yang couldn’t help but look at each other when they heard this. Then, Chi Yang sighed silently.
He sighed for a long time. It could be said that silence was better than sound.
Jian Ai could sense other content from this long sigh. She couldn’t help but blink in confusion and ask, “What’s going on? What are they doing?”
“Chi Yang, explain to the Sect Master!” Chi Lian looked at Chi Yang.
Chi Yang nodded, but he pulled Jian Ai to the sofa and sat down. He pulled her arm the entire time to prevent her from running away. “Isn’t it going to be New Year’s Day soon? Master knows that New Year’s Day is a traditional holiday in China, which is equivalent to Christmas in the West. Everyone will be reunited for a meal, so he had a sudden impulse and called for everyone to eat together on New Year’s Day.”
Jian Ai listened and nodded. The story was quite beautiful. Although she had to accompany her family on New Year’s Day, it did not stop Bai Zhou and the rest from having a gathering. After all, the ancient sect was a big family.
Chi Yang continued, “At first, I thought I would be the one cooking. It’s usually like this. In the end, Master suddenly had an idea. He wanted everyone to make two dishes. Then, everyone would vote and choose the most unpalatable dish. The person who makes the most unpalatable dish will be punished!”
“So you also know that Master doesn’t know how to cook. It’s already good enough that he recognizes all the ingredients on the plate!”
Jian Ai couldn’t help but widen her eyes. “Isn’t he digging a pit for himself? He knew he didn’t know how to cook, but he still organized such a competition? Who would lose to him?!”
“Xiao Zhen!” Chi Lian said mercilessly.
Jian Ai slapped her forehead. She had forgotten about Xiao Zhen.
Therefore, although Bai Zhou had suggested this competition, he and Xiao Zhen were the only participants.
This was because Chi Yang had already won this competition without a fight. Although Chi Lian had never cooked in front of Jian Ai, as Chi Yang’s sister, she should not be bad.
Si Yue was not good at cooking, but after living with Jian Ai, he learned some culinary skills. Occasionally, he would make supper for Jian Ai. Jian Ai had eaten it before, and Si Yue’s culinary skills improved day by day. He cooked quite well.
Needless to say, Zhi Tong would know how to cook after living alone for so many years!
“So… what’s the meaning of this competition?” Jian Ai felt that this matter was unreal.
Because she felt that there was no need. Why would she make things difficult for herself and others?
Chi Yang shrugged and said, “My sister and I have also brooded over the meaning of this matter. The only meaning should be… to choose the worst plate!”
Chi Lian added, “It’s the worst plate, not two worst plates. Just one!”
Jian Ai looked at Chi Lian and Chi Yang’s expressions inexplicably. Why could she tell from their faces that they were waiting to see Bai Zhou and Xiao Zhen make a fool of themselves?
Jian Ai frowned and asked, “Xiao Zhen definitely won’t agree to such a competition!”
“Lord Xiao Zhen has already agreed!” Chi Yang smiled and said, “Because he thinks he won’t lose!”
Jian Ai: !!!
Where did he get his confidence from?!
Although Bai Zhou looked like someone who had never entered the kitchen…
Xiao Zhen was the one who looked more like he didn’t know how to cook!
