Chapter 1497: Untitled
He only realized that he had patted her too hard when Jun Linyuan threw a dirty look at him.
“Hahaha, Xiao Wu, are you alright?”
Seeing the way the girl stumbled under his patting, Feng Xun scratched his head, looking ashamed.
Feng Wu waved at him. “That’s alright. You guys enjoy your chat. I’m hungry. I’ll go roast you some fish.”
Those moon fish couldn’t go to waste.
They were at the best location halfway up the hill.
Feng Wu chose the best spot and had Feng Xun set up the grill for her.
Moon fish didn’t have a single scale and were very easy to clean.
After removing the entrails and rinsing the fish, Feng Wu made three cuts on each fish, used some ginger to get rid of the fishy smell, and seasoned them with a special concoction she made herself.
Meanwhile, she also stuffed the fish with spices that she had gathered during the trip.
Once everyone was given their tasks, Feng Xun started setting up the grill while Xuan Yi went to find some firewood.
Because they were out in the open, the other people were able to see everything they were doing.
Families like the Zuo family were especially shocked when they saw the way Feng Wu ordered Feng Xun and Xuan Yi around.
How was that even possible? What magic did Feng Wu have? Why did influential young lords like Feng Xun and Xuan Yi get along so well with her?
The harmonious scene stung many eyes and broke many hearts.
Seeing that the moon fish was properly seasoned, Feng Wu came out of the tent and took over the job.
“I’m starving —” Feng Xun patted his stomach and looked resentful.
Feng Wu patted his head the way one would pacify a puppy dog. “There, there. It’s almost done. Just another 15 minutes.”
“Alright. I’ll just sit here and wait.” Feng Xun sat down cross-legged and rested his chin on his hands. The way he blinked looked quite adorable.
That was how Feng Wu and Feng Xun interacted with each other on a daily basis, but to other people, that was the most incredible thing!
“Why is Young Lord Feng so obedient with Feng Wu?”
“And Young Lord Xuan as well.”
“Feng Wu is just a bed-warming maid. How does she do it?!”
The entourage this time was quite sizable, and there were high-ranking officials, first-ranked dames, princes and princesses of all sorts…
They were all arrogant people that used to look down on Feng Wu. But now, they suddenly realized that Feng Wu was so important to Feng Xun and Xuan Yi, which utterly confused them.
They were so overwhelmed with jealousy that they had no time to analyze it. All they knew were their jealous feelings!
Feng Wu didn’t know what the others were thinking, but even if she did, she wouldn’t care at all.
She mulled over her cultivation technique as she busied herself with roasting the fish.
She had mastered the three stances her beautiful master taught her, but she still didn’t know where she could find the fourth one.
Her master had disappeared so suddenly that she probably had to wait until he woke up to learn the fourth stance.
Feng Wu patted her own head in frustration.
She was only on the 6th mission of the 12 Trials of Love, and the 6th one had been extended… She couldn’t imagine how torturous the future ones would be.
As she skillfully coated the roast fish with sauce, she racked her brain and tried to predict what might happen next and what precautions she would have to take.
