Chapter 174: Stinky tofu

“If you like it, then buy more! We have a big group, so it’s fine to purchase more.” Dongfang Bai warmly told Le Yao Yao. His eyes were filled with tenderness.

The way he looked at her was like how a lover would gaze at his lover. But Le Yao Yao didn’t notice.

“Boss, please give us some garlic chives, chicken wings, lamb kebab, and fishballs…. Five portions each!”

“Haha, alright.”

The stall owner was delighted to receive such a large order. So, he kept his hands busy and quickly barbecued the items for Le Yao Yao.

At this moment, Nangong Jun Xi came over from the stir fry stand. He was holding on many different appetizers. “Hmm. Not bad! These are all the items that this Prince enjoys. You sure know this Prince’s preferences!”

Nangong Jun Xi was shifting his brows as he smiled mischievously.

Hearing Nangong Jun Xi’s words, Le Yao Yao rolled her eyes at him. She was speechless.

“This is what everyone likes, ok?!”

What the heck. He made it seem as if she had paid specific attention to his preferences. What a narcissist!

Nangong Jun Xi didn’t mind Le Yao Yao’s rude tone. Instead, he snickered and remained by his side.

Since it was late, there were many people roaming by the riverbank. Nangong Jun Xi was worried this little guy would feel crammed in by the crowd. So, he was considerate enough to use his tall body to block the others from touching or pushing against Le Yao Yao.

However, Le Yao Yao was oblivious to this considerate gesture. Because, her mind was only on the barbecued items in front of her. The aroma of the food was causing her to gulp down her saliva again and again.

At this moment, the items were ready and Dongfang Bai paid the stall owner. Just as Le Yao Yao was about to reach over to get the snacks, a long arm beat her to it.

“I can get it.”

“Hehe! Thanks, brother Bai!”

Le Yao Yao gave Dongfang Bai a brilliant smile. Ever since Dongfang Bai found out she was female, he had been treating her like a lady! He was such a considerate, kind gentleman.

Le Yao Yao loved it. She had always wanted a big brother like Dongfang Bai. She wanted someone who would cherish and protect her. In addition, he was so nice and hot!

Dongfang Bai returned a smile to Le Yao Yao. Seeing this, Nangong Jun Xi was feeling jealous again.

Bai was always the good guy. He always treated everyone so well and he was loved by the citizens.

However, the way Bai treated Xiao Zhu Zi was a bit different.

He couldn’t really explain how it was different, but it just felt different.

But what made him the most upset was Xiao Zhu Zi.

“He” was also so respectful towards his senior brother. Yet, he treated him like he was his mortal enemy. But, he got along so well with Bai!

Bai’s charm must be huge….

Thinking of this, Nangong Jun Xi felt depressed.

When will Xiao Zhu Zi ever treat him the way he treats Bai?

While Nangong Jun Xi was feeling down, there was suddenly a smelly scent in the air.

Both Nangong Jun Xi and Leng Jun Yu crinkled their good looking brows; even Nian Sulan had her handkerchief covering her nose. She looked disgusted.

On the contrary, Le Yao Yao’s eyes lit up. She immediately exclaimed, “It’s stinky tofu!”

Then, Le Yao Yao ran as fast as an arrow towards the source of the smell.

Le Yao Yao was actively sniffing like a gluttonous puppy. Her ridiculous behavior made others smile.

“Stinky tofu? What’s that?” Nangong Jun Xi turned towards Dongfang Bai and asked.

Dongfang Bai shrugged his shoulders. He was confused as well; thinking, stinky tofu? Shouldn’t tofu smell good? Why is it smelly?

So, Dongfang Bai looked at Leng Jun Yu. He was also speechless. But, his footsteps were going towards Le Yao Yao’s direction.

By now, Le Yao Yao had found the source of the stinky tofu. In the past, aside from spicy foods, stinky tofu was amongst her favourite.

Back in the 21st century, she would often go to a stinky tofu stall near her school. After class, she would buy a portion of stinky tofu to munch on. Despite eating it countless of times, she was never sick of it.

Ever since she had arrived at the Heaven Yuan dynasty, she thought she would never have the opportunity to eat stinky tofu again. Now that she smelt the familiar scent, Le Yao Yao couldn’t help but feel excited and emotional.

“Boss, please give me a portion of stinky tofu.”

“Alright! Please wait a moment, little brother! I have another customer ahead of you.”

“Sure.”

At this time, Leng Jun Yu and the rest of the group were also here. However, they stood at a fair distance away. They had no intentions of walking over. After all, they were nobles raised in palaces. They have never tried these commoner foods before.

Le Yao Yao noticed this, but she didn’t mind. She didn’t care if the others didn’t want to try as she patiently waited for the owner to prepare her portion.

After everything was ready, she paid the stall owner and returned to Leng Jun Yu’s side.

She waved the paper bag in her hand and smiled like a blooming flower. “Hehe! I’m ready now! We can go on the boat now!”

“Eh? Xiao Zhu Zi? What are you holding? It smells terrible!” Nangong Jun Xi had his nose pinched and disgust could be seen all over his face.

Seeing how Nangong Jun Xi looked as if he was about to go to the execution grounds, Le Yao Yao couldn’t help but smile. “Stinky tofu is a well known snack! Don’t tell me you’ve never tried it before!”

“Eh? Well known? The smell is enough to kill a person!” Nangong Jun Xi snorted.

Then, he began to walk quickly ahead of the group. He acted as if he would faint from the smell.

Le Yao Yao pouted and was speechless towards Nangong Jun Xi’s response. But she didn’t blame him. After all, there were some people who loved the scent of stinky tofu, whereas, some people could not stand the slightest smell of it.

Le Yao Yao swept her eyes around and secretly took a peek at the King of Hell. Currently, the King of Hell had no expression on his face. He only icily looked at her paper bag. Without saying a word, he proceeded towards the boat as Nian Sulan rushed to follow along.

At the end, Dongfang Bai was the only one left.

“Bro…uh..Brother Yao…let’s go.”

Nowadays, Dongfang Bai sounded quite awkward whenever he called Le Yao Yao. Most likely, it was because he knew she was female yet he still had to refer to her as a guy.

Le Yao Yao obviously noticed this, but she didn’t say anything in that regards. Instead, she gave Dongfang Bai a toothy smile and said, “Okay!”

  1. Stinky tofu has to be an acquired taste. But I’m certain Yao Yao will introduce them to it. 7th Prince is so attentive to Yao Yao . He’s gonna die from his jealousy, especially towards Brother Bai.

  2. Pitiful 7th prince cos he is fated to be LYY’s “punching” bag or sparring partner. Not getting any loving attention. Thanks

  3. I have Taiwanese blood in me. Stinky tofu is awesome. General rule is, the further away the smell travels, the better it is! I like it steamed and super spicy. Fried stinky tofu doesn’t taste strong enough.

    Stinky tofu certainly is an acquired taste, but so is stuff like coffee. I don’t know of any child that likes the taste of coffee, but a lot of adults are sure addicted to it. It’s that kind of acquired tasted. (I personally think coffee is disgusting, I’ll drink anything else if possible. Not a fan of bitter drinks, I prefer them sweet or alcoholic…)

  4. Nuuuuu! Not another food chapter! XD i actually really like them, i just always seem to be reading them when i am hungry!
    Mmm, stinky tofu!
