Chapter 18: Amazing Culinary Skills
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
At the old mansion, Uncle Yu and his family were talking about what happened during the day. Aunt Yu brought in some medicine.
The youngest daughter sat on her fathers lap and ate the osmanthus cake Yu Feng brought back.
Yu Feng and Yu Song stood obediently in front of their uncle. No matter who made a mistake, these two brothers would always be punished together. However, it was always Yu Song who caused trouble and caused Yu Feng to be implicated. Today, it was Yu Feng who was in trouble.
“What exactly happened” Uncle Yu asked solemnly.
Aunt Yu took a glance at her son and placed the boiling hot medicinal concoction on the table. She also carried her little daughter, who was engrossed in eating the osmanthus cake, over.
Seeing Yu Feng remain silent, Yu Song nudged him with his elbow. “Say something. Why did you beat up Mrs. Zhao” He didnt believe that his big brother was standing up for Third Aunt. Although Ah Wan was a disgraceful girl, Third Aunt was a good person. There was nothing wrong with standing up for Third Aunt. There would be no problem if hes the one who had done it. But with his big brothers character, how could he beat up a woman
“I just did,” Yu Feng said.
The village headman did not believe him. He desperately wanted to explain, but now that there was someone who believed him, he did not want to say anything.
“Why are you hitting people too” Yu Song mumbled, apparently accepting this excuse.
Aunt Yu said angrily, “Did Ah Wan call you over Youve been going to her house these few days and even went to town with her. I havent asked you why!”
Yu Song rubbed his nose resentfully. Big Brother had told him not to tell his family about Ah Wans bet with the pharmacy. However, it was not that he wanted to let it slip this time. He really could not hide it anymore.
“Im asking you a question!” Aunt Yu emphasized.
The youngest daughter glanced at her mother and continued to eat the osmanthus cake in the box.
After owing Ah Wan such a big favor, Yu Feng had no intention of hiding it from his family. Since his mother asked, he might as well confess everything that happened that day at the pharmacy.
After hearing Yu Fengs words, the husband and wife were both stunned. No one expected Ah Wan to speak up and help them pay back the money.
What happened back then was quite a coincidence. Although Yu Kaiyang had saved Ah Wan, the heavy rain had been so heavy that Ah Wan didnt even know that she had almost lost her life. She also didnt know that someone had saved her. She only thought that the disaster behind her had nothing to do with her.
Yu Kaiyang had never allowed them to speak the truth.
Yu Kaiyangs leg had been broken because of Ah Wan, but Ah Wan would rather give the money she earned from outside to Mrs. Zhao than lend them a single copper coin.
How could this heartless girl repay their debt
If Yu Wans proposal to repay the debt was shocking enough, then Yu Fengs following words stunned the couple.
“Its already paid off.”
“Paid… paid off!” Yu Song could not stay calm anymore. “Thats twenty taels! Can those fish and bamboo shoots sell for that much money!”
Of course, fish and bamboo shoots were not enough. Just as Yu Feng was hesitating whether he should tell everyone that Yu Wan knew how to cook salt, Yu Wan came to the door with the dumplings that had just been cooked.
“What are you doing here” Yu Feng opened the door.
Yu Wan stuffed the cotton-wrapped basket into Yu Fengs arms. “You havent had dinner yet, right Its been hard on you today, Big Brother.”
Whats hard on him Cook salt or take the blameYu Feng did not want to accept it, but his sister walked over with her short legs.
The youngest daughters face was red and her eyes were big. She looked very delicate and cute. She looked at Yu Fengs large bowl of fragrant meat and instantly couldnt move.
Yu Wan pinched her little cousins cheeks and said to Yu Feng, “Eat the dumplings while theyre hot. Ill go back first.”
“What is this” Yu Feng found the bank notes under the cotton.
Yu Wan said, “Big Brothers remuneration. Big Brother and I earned the money together. Big Brother and I did it together. Of course, I cant take it all for myself.”
Yu Feng: “But…”
Yu Wan smiled and interrupted him. “Big Brother, see you tomorrow.”
With that, she pinched her little cousins cheeks and turned to disappear into the night.
Yu Feng took out a banknote and looked at it. There was a total of fifteen taels. This was the money his father need on medicine for months!
“Big brother.” Yu Wans figure could no longer be seen, but an extremely soft yet firm voice could be heard. “When Ive saved enough money, Ill bring Uncle to the Capital to treat his leg.”
Inside the house, Uncle Yu and Aunt Yu were silent. Yu Songs eyes were rolling, but he did not say a word.
Everyone heard Yu Wans words. In the past, they would definitely not believe her, but after these few days, this Ah Wan seemed to be really different from before.
Yu Feng removed the cotton wool, and a strong meaty smell instantly filled the room.
Yu Song gulped.
Yu Feng took out a banknote. “Id better return this…”
Before he could finish speaking, Aunt Yu took the banknote and stuffed it into the drawer expressionlessly under everyones stunned gazes.
This means that she was accepting Ah Wans feelings. For some reason, Yu Feng actually felt a bit happy.
Uncle Yus eyes had already started to turn red when he heard that sentence.
Only Yu Song was still fuming. He didnt really want to forgive that girl, but facing a bowl of steaming dumplings, he couldnt help but drool.
The dumplings were really well made, and each one was beautiful. He couldnt tell that the girl actually had a pair of skillful hands. Look at the dumplings, they were even better than his fathers.
It must be delicious! At least it would be better than the chicken soup from last time.
Aunt Yu brought the bowls and chopsticks over.
Yu Song took one eagerly.
Uncle Yu picked up one too.
Then, Aunt Yu and Yu Song also picked up their chopsticks. Only their youngest daughter was still clumsily poking with her chopsticks.
When they bit down, the entire family was stunned!

The few of them exchanged glances. In the next second, they all bent down and vomited out.
The moon was dark and the wind was strong.
A spacious carriage drove through Lotus Flower Town and stopped on a row of streets.
Lotus Flower Town was just a small town with no reputation. When the sky turned dark, the streets gradually became deserted.
This was exactly what the carriage owner wanted.
Apart from being more spacious, this carriage didnt look any different from the carriages in town.
The Jadeite Pavilion had seen many such customers, so they didnt take them seriously at all.
Suddenly, a young master dressed in luxurious clothes jumped out of the car. He looked to be no more than seventeen or eighteen years old. He was wearing a top-grade cloud brocade and shoes with luminous pearls embedded in them. On his waist hung a priceless suet jade pendant.
The shopkeeper of the Jadeite Pavilion made a rough estimate. Not to mention that jade pendant, even a Night-Luminescent Pearl on a shoe could buy the entire Jadeite Pavilion.
The other party looked even more handsome. At least in this small town, there had never been a more noble and handsome youth.
The shopkeeper of the Jadeite Pavilion immediately concluded that the other party was a legitimate son of a Zanying clan!
“What are you waiting for Hurry up and get the guests! Get out of the way! Ill do it!” The shopkeeper of the Jadeite Pavilion personally ran out. However, just as he was about to go forward to welcome the noble young master, he saw that the other partys entire body was bent down and kneeling beside the carriage smoothly.
Wait, isnt this a young master
The bead curtain was lifted.
A slender white figure walked out of the carriage. He stepped on the “noble young master”s back and landed on the ground.
