Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 235
When she filled up the openings, she finally started the fire to begin roasting.
“Can we really eat this? There’s dirt all over.” Fei said, confused.
Gu Li nodded furiously. “Of course, of course!” She could already smell the beautiful delicious smell of cooked meat. Oh, oh. It was the best decision of her life to cling onto XunMi.
“Don’t just stand there. This isn’t enough for everyone to eat. Let’s cook some meat. Gu Li, go. It’s time to exhibit your culinary talents. Remember to go slowly so that others can learn.” XunMi was busy taking care of the ingredients in her hand and didn’t even look up when delegating orders.
Because beastmen consume alot of energy, their appetites were abnormally large. They needed to continuously replenish their intake to operate at maximum capacity. Because she wouldn’t be able to change their appetite, XunMi had targeted the mission of transforming their food supply instead. Luckily, they were fast learners and actors.
In this slightly cold night, the center of the tribe was filled with warmth.
The crowd carefully observed the cooking pots with anticipation.
Gradually, a mouthwatering smell filled the air. It wasn’t too heavy but was still able to hook everyone’s appetites. Some directly crouched in front of XunMi and Gu Li’s working area, prepared to start eating as soon as they were allowed.
XunMi used a wooden club to dig out the Beggar’s chicken from the hole. She used a small rock to smash the outer layer of clay away, allowing a strong flavor to escape into the air.
“Smells so good, so good!” Yue and Fei’s eyes glistened as they watched XunMi peel back the large leaves around the gege beast. The golden gege beast was really full of wonderful scents.
This beast was twice the size of modern chickens. After being cooked, it didn’t shrink in size. Instead, because it was stuffed with ingredients, it seemed to have enlarged even more. Baring the heat, she ripped off one leg and gave it to Yuan He. “Hurry up and eat. See if it’s done cooking.”
Yuan He very obediently took a bite. This was the most delicious thing he’s ever eaten. He hurriedly nodded his head.
XunMi handed the bird off to Aunt Yue. “Aunt, go eat this with the others first. There’s more food inside too. But don’t overeat, that’s bad for your health. I’ll make a meat soup and some vegetables here so come grab them later.”
XunMi then took three more from the hole and handed them to Aunt Fei. Yue and Fei nodded their heads and called a few other females over to carry away the finished products.
XunMi pulled out the rest from the hole and gave the others out to beastmen, saving two for herself. She headed to the water that Jia had boiled and placed in two uncooked birds in. Ginger and spice had already been added to the water so now she could make chicken soup.
Gu Li had also finished barbequing the meat. With Mu Yan’s help, the two had cooked three entire long haired beasts. Long haired beasts were a type of fluffy and large bird not present in modern times.
Soon, the entire tribe was filled with the smells of food. The rowdy beastmen came to help out cooking the meat. They didn’t plan on letting XunMi and Gu Li cook for the entire tribe. They only wanted them to first demonstrate so that they could also learn how to prepare the food.
“Mi, come eat. It won’t be as good when cold.” Yuan He pulled out a leg of gege meat. Mi had been working for hours, she must be exhausted.
XunMi opened her mouth and took a bite. Very good, tasted so good.
One fed and the other waited to be fed in perfect harmony, making everyone that observed the scene give their well-wishes to the in-tune couple.
Meanwhile, Yan Luo was already wondering whether his slow son would finally gain a mate at the harvest festival.
It was a happy night for everyone. There was no need to worry about the upcoming rain season. There was no reason to worry about food. The future was bright.
In her bed, XunMi had a dream. In this dream, she wore a golden gown and sat on a rose-embedded throne, watching the ball occurring below her. There were handsome men and beautiful women everywhere in the elegant chamber. Something about it was familiar to her, especially the man with golden eyes that she saw walk towards her the moment before she woke up. His face was grave and stern. But after that one glance, she could no longer see his face.
XunMi rubbed her aching forehead, trying to remember her dream. But even though it had only occurred moments ago, she had forgotten everything.
“BaoBao, tell me. Are you sure I come from that original world?” She didn’t want to suspect, but she just felt that something was off. Everything from the start of the previous world, to her husband’s transformation, and to the power of each world’s existential laws. There was so much that made her bewildered.
BaoBao had been sleeping blissfully when he was awoken by XunMi’s question. But when he heard his Madam Host’s inquiry, he was immediately wide awake from fright.
