Chapter 172 A Foodie’s lure
“…” The two people behind the stove were stiff. They looked at each other and hurriedly poked their heads out to face Feng Tingye’s face that had a smile that was not a true smile.
Feng Tingye was also taken aback when he saw Second Baby. After the brief astonishment, under everyone’s surprised gaze, he stepped forward and picked up Second Baby: “Baby, where’s your Royal Mother? “
Second Baby nestled in her Father’s arms, tilted her little head to think for a while. Then with her little finger, she pointed at the stove not far away, and replied honestly: “There. “
“ …” Baby, this traitor!
Xia Yuqing leaned out from behind the stove with two noodles as tears. She waved to Feng Tingye and smiled: “Your Majesty…”
Fortunately, Shao Zitang had the foresight and had locked the door of the kitchen after everyone entered, otherwise the identities of everyone would be exposed with just a few words of these two people.
Feng Tingye stared at Xia Yuqing with a bright smile: “Ai Fei, shouldn’t you give me a good explanation about what is going on?”
“…” It’s over, the Ultra Seme Lord is angry!
Xia Yuqing smiled awkwardly, and began to look at the sky, coughing… No, she started to look stupidly at the roof.
“Little Princess?” Royal Mother? Ai Fei? These people…” Lan Yingran was startled as he listened to the conversation between the two of them. In fact, he already had guesses in his heart, but he still asked, hoping to get a different answer.
“Ah, it’s my Little Junior Sister. “Yun Zhong Yue seemed to see through what Lan Yingran was thinking in his heart, and decided to hit him while he was down.
Yun Xi coughed lightly and interjected: “My Qing Jiejie.”
Shao Zitang was always the cruelest at all times. He stared at Lan Yingran’s face and gave him the final blow: “The Empress of Ye Kingdom.”
Boom…Lan Yingran only felt a thunderbolt smash his head, abruptly knocking him out.
Could someone tell him how the noble, elegant, beautiful and intelligent empress has become the little thief over there with a gray face and guilty smile?
Yun Xi glanced at the hard-hit Lan Yingran with sympathy. Poor Uncle Lan was shocked silly by Qing Jiejie! Facts have proven that all those who imagine Qing Jiejie as an elegant person are bound to suffer a blow that could wipe one to extinction. Look at the sky…..
“These two are the empress and the little princess?” Wei Yan was also stunned. He looked at Second Baby in Feng Tingye’s arms and Xia Yuqing, who was not far away. His face was full of amazement.
“Um, I’m sorry, I ate so many things in your house, it’s really because we were travel-worn and have been exhausted for many days. We were so hungry, we couldn’t hold back…” Xia Yuqing scratched her little face with embarrassment and guilt.
Wei Yan froze and pointed stiffly at the leftovers on the table: “You ate all those?”
“To be precise, it was Mother and younger sister who ate them together.” Wei Yan didn’t say anything when he heard a tender voice suddenly from behind Xia Yuqing.
Everyone was taken aback for a moment. They shifted their sights to behind Xia Yuqing: “His Royal Highness!”
“Ai Fei, what you committed this time does not seem to be a trivial matter that can be accounted for.” Feng Tingye narrowed his eyes and stared at Big Baby who walked out from behind Xia Yuqing. His eyebrows trembled unconsciously.
“Uuuuu…” Xia Yuqing’s two noodle tears came flying out. It is too cruel to be caught on the spot for doing bad things. Ultra Seme Lord is very angry, the ending will be very serious, please let me go! Help!
Xia Yuqing moved to Feng Tingye’s side with a bitter expression. She replied with a guilty and embarrassed smile: “Your Majesty, Chen Qie was worried about you, so…”
“Worried about me?” Feng Tingye angrily smiled, “Why do I feel that Ai Fei was just too bored in the palace and couldn’t bear to miss this opportunity to go out and watch a good show, so did everything possible to keep up?”
“…” Being caught, the smile on Xia Yuqing’s face froze. In a hurry, she winked vigorously at Second Baby in Feng Tingye’s arms.
Second Baby immediately understood. Her little hand gripped Feng Tingye’s collar tightly, and tearfully said: “Father, don’t blame… Mother. Father didn’t bring baby and brother out to play, bad…”
“…” Baby, you’re so bold! You dare to accuse him of being bad in front of his face?! Also, knowing to protect your Mother, Mother really didn’t care for you in vain. Mother will give you thirty-two likes!
Feng Tingye’s phoenix eyes were slightly raised. He glanced at Xia Yuqing with two bright eyes on the side, successfully turning her stiff smile into an ostrich again. (how ostrich hides head underground)
“Baby, Father didn’t come out to play.”
“If you didn’t come out to play, could it be that you came out to eat delicious food?” Second Baby stared at Feng Tingye with excitement, her bright light was almost dazzling. It blinded everyone’s eyes on the side.
“…” Sure enough, in the world of foodies, everything is only about food!
“Pu…” The few people behind them snorted and laughed unceremoniously. After being given a look by Feng Tingye, they hurriedly took back their smiles and laughs, but everyone’s eyes showed they were enjoying this moment.
Feng Tingye looked at his precious daughter with a headache. For the first time, he realized that he had to face the hard cold fact that his daughter had become a foodie that was not inferior to a certain someone.
“Baby, Father didn’t come out to eat delicious food.”
“Then, what did Father come out for?” Second Baby exclaimed. Her big eyes widened, and she stared at Feng Tingye in surprise.
“Um, to do something, something dangerous.”
Second Baby shook her head, before staring with two big eyes: “Is it delicious?”
“Your Majesty…” Xia Yuqing called out to stop Feng Tingye from continuing to answer. Unfortunately, Feng Tingye was burnt by Second Baby’s repeated bombing, and did not notice her reminder at all. This was destined to become a tragedy.
“Where is the roast suckling pig?” Second Baby asked expectantly.
“…there is none.”
Second Baby’s face turned white: “What about the candy haws promised by Mother?”
“…” Candy haws? Was there something like that too? Feng Tingye moved his gaze to Xia Yuqing’s body.
Xia Yuqing hid her face silently. Squatting in the side corner, she tried to narrow her sense of existence.
Feng Tingye took a deep breath, and reluctantly said, “None.”
Second Baby’s face collapsed because of this harsh blow. She stared at Feng Tingye with tears in her eyes and asked the last question: “Then, is there baby’s favorite pigeon congee?”
“Still…none.” Second Baby opened her small mouth, as if digesting the bad news. After a long while, Second Baby’s small mouth collapsed and she began to gather her strength…
“Waaaa…” An earth-shaking cry resounded over the entire kitchen.
“Oh, Father made sister cry.” Big Baby said this while looking at Second Baby who was crying loudly in Feng Tingye’s arms.
“…” Feng Tingye began to grind his teeth. Holding the soft little bun in his arms, for the first time in his life, he realized what it means to be burnt.
“Baby, don’t cry, Auntie will buy you buns to eat later.” Seeing Second Baby crying until she was red, a group of girls broke out their motherly nature. They all wanted to step forward to remove Second Baby from Feng Tingye. Yet, Second Baby kept holding on to Feng Tingye, and choked: “No buns, baby wants the candy haws, the candy haws bought by Mother!”
“No, Mother can’t take you out to buy candy haws.” Feng Tingye was a little pale from Second Baby’s sorrowful cry, but he still refused Second Baby’s request. As a result…
“Father’s words are nothing but a lie. Baby, baby hates Father the most! Waa…”
“…” Everyone clearly saw that their emperor’s face turn completely…green. Alas, this is really a day of chaos, look at the sky…
“By the way, if Junior Sister is here, then Sister-in-law…” Hua Nongying looked over his head, sensing something.
Sure enough, he saw a figure attached to the beam of the house, watching everything that happened below. After being in the line of sight projected by Hua Nong Ying, the person above flew down from the roof.
“Sister-in-law, you really are here.”
What responded Hua Nongying was a flash of sword light and a merciless sneer: “I am not your Sister-in-law, don’t bark nonsense.”
“Ah…this noble person’s dark, soft and luscious hair!” His attention was still on the crying Second Baby not far away, so he did not notice Cui Er, thus allowing her to cut off a small amount of his long hair. He held his chopped hair in his hands, then, he squatted to the side and began to mourn silently…
Yun Zhongyue twitched, then he realized something and coughed softly: “Since my Sister-in-law is here, Senior Brother is…”
Cui Er glanced at him. Returning the sword into its sheath, she raised her hand and pointed towards the roof.
Yun Zhong Yue looked in the direction she was pointing. At a glance, he saw a person hanging his head from the beam with foam at his mouth. From that, he knew that it was the appearance of someone who had just been attacked and beaten. His smile froze.
“I didn’t see anything. Forget about it, forget it quickly, or you will have nightmares tonight.”
“Cui Er Jiejie, you are here too? I knew it was weird that Qing Jiejie would have no one following her. But, Cui Er Jiejie, since you knew Qing Jiejie was following us from the beginning, why didn’t you let us know?”
Yun Xi’s question caused everyone to move their eyes to Cui Er.
Cui Er glanced at the people and folded her hands across her chest: “Nu Bi noticed that the empress, the little prince and the little princess were having fun. Besides, the empress, the little prince, and the little princess were not in any danger, so Nu Bi didn’t dare to take action to disturb the interests of the empress.”
” …… ” Cui Er Jiejie, are you actually the one who wants the world to be in chaos the most? !
Several people were speechless. There was suddenly another earth shaking cry: “Wahhh…”
In the end, for this mistake caused by a foodie’s lure, Feng Tingye had to compromise and agree having Xia Yuqing take Second Baby out to buy candy haws and have Wei Yan prepare a roasted suckling pig.
After this battle, everyone fully realized their little princess was not just a foodie, but also a good crying foodie. The most important thing was that this crying foodie was their emperor’s weakness! When the princess really opened up her voice, the palace would tremble three times.
Of course, if you think that our Ultra Seme Lord would just swallow this breath down and forgive the three people for leaving the palace without authorization, that would be too naive.
A certain animal couldn’t suppress his daughter, but that doesn’t mean that he couldn’t suppress his daughter’s mother.
Therefore, Xia Yuqing, who originally planned to use her Second Baby to sell her cuteness to beg for forgiveness, once again failed. Accused of one crime after another, she was dragged into the room, to the bed, and overwhelmed…
In the beautiful name of: The two children are troublemakers, he could already see how the children will be in the future, so they will have to give birth to another one to prevent future troubles!
In this regard, Xia Yuqing expressed her “your sister” disorder. You beast, why are you trying to make your explanation sound so dignified? Squinting contempt…
Anyways, having made such a big ruckus when they first arrived in Shu and still standing on someone else’s ground, Feng Tingye must be careful not to be too presumptuous. However, the so-called not being too presumptuous, was just allowing Xia Yuqing to barely get up from bed the next day to buy candied haws with Yun Xi.
“Mother, insect bites.” Second Baby laid in Xia Yuqing’s arms, tilting her head, and pointing at the red dot on Xia Yuqing’s neck.
“Insects? I didn’t see any insects in Uncle Wei’s house last night.” Yun Xi approached with a puzzled look, wanting to see what insect Xia Yuqing was bitten by.
Xia Yuqing was taken aback for a moment. She reacted and pulled her clothes up, covering the red hickey on her neck. She stepped back two steps: “It’s nothing, it’s nothing, there were a lot of mosquitoes last night, and I was just accidentally bitten. It’s just a few mouthfuls, it’s okay, no need to make a fuss.”
“Mosquitoes?” Yun Xi stared at Xia Yuqing with a puzzled expression. Being stared at directly, Xia Yuqing looked away with a guilty conscience.
“Yes, it’s mosquitoes. It’s summer, and mosquitoes are gradually increasing. Last night, I was bitten by several poisonous mosquitoes. When you go out, Xiao Xi, remember to bring some repellents and some mosquito incense back.”
Xia Yuqing was embarrassed. Suddenly, she heard a female voice let out a laugh behind her. She hurriedly turned her head to follow the sound and saw Yan Tingfang and servant, dressed up as two beautiful young masters walking out.
“There really are mosquitoes? Then you must remember to buy mosquito repellents and incense later, I am most afraid of mosquitoes.” Yun Xi did not doubt her.
Xia Yuqing breathed a sigh of relief, and handed a grateful look at Yan Tingfang. Looking at the two of them, she curiously asked: “Ms. Yan is going out too?”
Yan Tingfang smiled, “Well, I want to go out and inquire about some news.”
Xia Yuqing nodded. She then moved her gaze down to Big Baby beside her lap.
“By the way, Dudu, why did you follow along?”
Big Baby glanced at Second Baby in Xia Yuqing’s arms, and naturally said: “Where my sister goes, I will go.”
“…Then when your sister marries, do you want to go with her to someone else’s house too.”
Big Baby was stunned. His face bulged. He bowed his head and pondered seriously for a long time: “Why marry off instead of marrying someone in (refer to son-in-law living with wife’s family)?”
“……” My child, how are you so mature? You even know about marrying in?!
“Well, forget it.” Big Baby grinned, “If you want to marry off younger sister, you will have to pass the test between me and my father.”
“…” At that moment, Xia Yuqing seemed to see the arrogance behind her son and his two small black wings. A big devil and a little devil, she suddenly felt a little sympathy for her future son-in-law.
In any case, the group of people finally left the house in a mighty manner. Later, they parted ways at a certain intersection. Xia Yuqing and the others went to the bazaar, while Yan Tingfang and the others walked in an unidentified direction.
The market in Shu Kingdom was as lively as the other three countries. Xia Yuqing, dressed as a rich man, was curiously touching the moustache on her mouth. She was listening to Yun Xi’s excitement on the side as she introduced the customs of Shu Kingdom.
“Qing Jiejie, it’s rare for you to come to the country of Shu, so you have to take a good look. There are many fun things in the country. For example, the masks over there are all carved from wood, newly transported from the mountain. It’s only available in the Kingdom of Shu. There are also little wooden people over there. They are all carved out on the spot. Do you think they look exactly like real people?”
The country of Shu was surrounded by mountains, they were everywhere. Thus trees, flowers and grass, all the things that people sell in Shu were more or less related to nature.
In order not to reveal her identity, Cui Er dressed Yun Xi as a dignified lady with a milf-like charm, but it was a pity that this dignity had long been left behind under the excitement of Yun Xi’s excited gestures.
Fortunately, at this time the market was already lively, and the crowds coming and going were all in a hurry, so not many people found the discrepancies here.
Xia Yuqing looked in the direction pointed by Yun Xi, and saw a lot of onlookers gathered in front of a small stall. Looking in from the outside, they could vaguely see vivid little lifelike people.
It was the first time Xia Yuqing and the others saw something like that, so they were a bit curious. They looked at each other, and walked over with the two children.
The stall owner was a white-haired old man. At this moment, a small wooden figure was handed over to a person on the side. Seeing Xia Yuqing and the others approaching, he smiled kindly: “Will you guests require a wood carving?”
Xia Yuqing was taken aback, then she remembered that they had changed faces, so even if it was carved out, it would not be of their true face anymore.
Although a little disappointed, they were helpless. Several people were about to shake their heads and turn around when Xia Yuqing felt her hem sink.
“Mother…um, Daddy, child wants to have a pair with sister, can I?” Big Baby looked at the little figurines on the table and his eyes lit up. He pulled Xia Yuqing’s sleeves and plead.
Xia Yuqing was taken aback. She glanced at the two cute little buns and smiled, “Okay, old man, can you make one for the children?”
“Of course, these two children must be the son and daughter of this master and his wife. They are so cute, this master is so lucky. This little old man will carve them a pair of sculptures, just wait a moment.”
The stall owner looked at the two children lovingly, then he took out a wooden block on the side and started to carve quickly.
A quarter of an hour later, under the surprising eyes of everyone, a cute boy and girl little wooden figurine appeared in the hands of the old man.
Xia Yuqing took the two exquisite little wooden figurines and handed them to the two original little buns, and chuckled softly : “Do you like it?”
“En!” Second Baby held hers in her hands and nodded repeatedly. Even Big Baby who always liked to pretend to be a small adult, at this time finally showed a bit of the innocence a child should have, with a look of joy on his face.
Xia Yuqing looked at the appearance of the two buns with a flash of inspiration in her mind. She turned to look at the stall owner: “Old man, if there are portraits, can you help me make two more?”
The stall owner was startled. Then he slowly smiled: “Yes, I can. As long as there is a portrait, this old man can make it.”
“Master…” Cui Er twisted her eyebrows and called out to Xia Yuqing with some worry. Stepping forward, she pulled Xia Yuqing’s hand for fear that Xia Yuqing would bring out her portrait on impulse. Although there are not many people who knew what Xia Yuqing and Feng Tingye looked like in Shu, they are not completely absent. With so many people here, they were not afraid of ten thousand, but just that one. (scared of that one chance)
Xia Yuqing smiled and shook her head, indicating she would be fine. She took out a small charcoal pen she carried with her from her sleeve, and drew on the white paper on the side. On the drawing, two very cute little people, one man and one woman, appeared. The appearance was very similar to the two buns, especially the male, but his appearance and clothes were slightly different.
“Just follow these two.”
“Oh, what is this? It’s like a child, but a little different, it looks so cute!” Yun Xi stared at the two little people on the paper, exclaiming with red eyes.
Xia Yuqing smiled triumphantly, then she mysteriously approached Yun Xi’s ear and whispered to her.
Yun Xi suddenly realized something. She stared at the two little people on the paper, her eyes became brighter and brighter.
Cui Er could also tell the identity of the little people on the paper, and was slightly relieved. Although she can tell who it was, in this Q (cute) form, it would be difficult for ordinary people to see the clue if they were not someone who has been with the two for a long time. Especially… seeing that little girl…
“Ahem, these two are my other pair of nephew and niece. They live elsewhere all year round. It’s been a long time since I have been able to see them. It happens that I am doing business and I will go to visit them in the next few days. Using this as a greeting gift for the two children, I believe they will like it very much.” Xia Yuqing began to bluff politely. Anyways, the Q version of herself and the Ultra Seme Lord did not seem to be far behind from the two children.
“So that’s the case.” The stall owner didn’t doubt her. He took the picture from Xia Yuqing’s hand and smiled, “Master, don’t worry, this old man will help master to make these two figurines. I promise the young master and the young lady will definitely like it.”
“Then I would like to thank this old man in advance.” Xia Yuqing looked at the Q version of the little girl on the paper, with some expectation in her eyes.
“Qing Jiejie…” Yun Xi approached Xia Yuqing’s side and whispered in Xia Yuqing’s ear.
When this scene fell into the eyes of others, it appeared like a couple who were very affectionate and whispering, but the truth is…
“Qing Jiejie, I also want to carve a pair with General He…” Yun Xi looked shyly at He Wenzhong, who had been silently acting as a bodyguard behind them.
“Pu……” Xia Yuqing glanced at He Wenzhong’s face that didn’t seem to understand anything. She laughed joked, “You and General He……”
“Qing Jiejie!” Yun Xi heard the ridicule in Xia Yuqing’s words. Her small face flushed even more.
“Okay, okay, I won’t tease you. It’s a rare opportunity, no problem, no problem, I’m sure I will give you the cutest General He.”
Yun Xi smiled embarrassingly. She held Xia Yuqing’s hand happily: “Qing Jiejie, you are the best.”
“Old man, add two more dolls!”
“…” Master, how many children are there in your family? !
The few people were having fun, so they didn’t notice that there was a little bun that could not reach the stall. Holding the little wooden figure in her hands, she listened to the muffled noise of her belly feeling a little distressed. Her little face wrinkled.
“Mother, baby is hungry…” The faint voice of Second Baby was completely drowned in the lively discussions of the several people.
Seeing that no one paid any attention to her, Second Baby pouted in irritation. She was about to cry aggrievedly to announce her own existence, but suddenly seemed to have discovered something. Her small body stiffened, then she turned around. Looking around, her small nose arched and tentatively sniffed in a certain direction. Her big watery eyes shot out bright light.
Ignoring the adults who were still discussing on the side, she struggled to squeeze out of the crowd with her two little short legs. After seeing a small booth with white smoke not far away, her eyes flashed. Her eyes turning into two small stars, she dashed straight towards the stall.
