The Husky and His White Cat Shizun - Chap 84
When Chu Wanning woke up, he saw Mo Ran sitting at the table in a daze with his hands on his cheeks. A bean lantern was reflected in his dark eyes, so bright that they seemed hollow.
He wanted to sit up, but he didn’t have the strength. Chu Wanning could only give up.
The snow green inscriptions fluttered gently. He turned his body and stared at Mo Ran silently. But that fool was still immersed in himself and didn’t notice that his Shizun had woken up.
He couldn’t be blamed. Anyone who knew that their lover had a son with another woman would be greatly shocked.
Was Xia Si really Chu Wanning’s illegitimate child? How could this be … Chu Wanning was so picky, which woman in the world could enter his eyes?
Moreover, if the matter of an illegitimate child was true, Chu Wan-ning definitely had this child in her past life. However, they had been together for so many years, and Chu Wan-ning’s words and actions had nothing to do with the words’ husband ‘at all, regardless of whether it was her daily words and actions, or her affairs in bed.
But what was going on with this Golden Butterfly hairpin?
Mo Ran was so distressed that he knocked his forehead on the table. He was about to go crazy!
He wasn’t smart to begin with, and he wasn’t good at thinking about such complicated things. The more he thought about it, the more his head hurt. In the end, he hugged his head and completely collapsed on the table.
“Mo Ran, what are you doing?”
A deep and pleasant voice rang out in the room. It sounded a little hoarse.
Suddenly, Mo Ran jumped up and said in surprise, “Shizun, you’re awake?”
“Yes,” Chu Wanning coughed a few times and raised his eyes to look at him, “This is … the inn at Lin Ling Yu?”
“Yes, yes.” Mo Ran stood up and walked to the bedside. He suddenly saw that Chu Wanning’s lower lip seemed to have some scratches. He thought about how he was in a daze and didn’t control himself, almost causing a big mistake. His face flushed red.
Seeing that he was in a daze, Chu Wanning said, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, nothing.” Mo Ran waved his hand and changed the topic. “It’s like this. Master suddenly fainted in the Xuanyuan Pavilion, so I carried … cough, brought you here to rest. I found a doctor to prescribe some medicine, and then … ”
When I heard you talking in your sleep, I thought of the past and couldn’t help but kiss you.
But how could he say these words? Mo Ran’s voice gradually became softer and softer. His eyes were filled with a rare fluster, and he appeared to be more and more embarrassed.
Chu Wanning’s heart skipped a beat when he heard that Wei Xiaobao was looking for a doctor. He was afraid that Wei Xiaobao already knew that he was poisoned and that his body would shrink. He could not help but quietly tighten his grip on the quilt.
“What did the doctor say?”
“The doctor said that Master was affected by the Spirit Martial Technique, which is why you couldn’t hold on.” Mo Ran hesitated for a while before continuing, “Master, your Spirit Core …”
“It’s fine. It’s just more fragile than ordinary people.”
Mo Ran was stunned. He originally thought that Chu Wanning and Chu Wanning both had scars on their chests, and guessed that there was some kind of connection between the two. But after hearing what Chu Wanning said, it seemed that this was not the case. He could not help but ask, “How could this be? Master is so powerful, his Spirit Core must not be weak at birth. When did it start? ”
“A long time ago. Ever since I was injured many years ago, it has always been like this.” Chu Wanning casually waved his hand. This was not what he was concerned about. “Did the doctor say anything else?”
Mo Ran shook his head and said, “Nothing else.”
The candlelight was hazy. Chu Wanning looked at him deeply and said, “Then why did you hit the table with your head just now?”
“…” Mo Ran held back for a while. Since he could not hold it in anymore, he simply threw caution to the wind. He took out the golden butterfly hairpin from his sleeve and spread it in his palm.
“I found this.”
“It’s on your body.”
The hairpin shone with a golden light, but Chu Wanning’s heart continued to sink.
Sure enough, he found out. In the end, he could not hide it.
Sighing softly, they were silent for a long time. The two did not speak again. In the end, Chu Wanning closed his eyes. Just as he was about to tell the truth, he heard Mo Ran whisper, “Master, Xia Shidi … is he really your son?”
Chu Wanning, “…”
Opening his eyes, the blood that had just frozen into ice seemed to flow again. For a moment, Chu Wanning only silently stared at Mo Weiyu, who had a complicated expression on his face. His eyes gradually condensed into two clear words, “Idiot.”
“Yes.” Chu Wanning coldly raised his hand. Without waiting for Mo Ran to respond, he took the golden butterfly hairpin away. “Didn’t I tell you before? Why ask again?”
Mo Ran covered his face and said, “I just … want to confirm it again …”
Although Chu Wanning admitted that Xia Sini was his flesh and blood several times, Mo Ran was still skeptical. He endured the strong discomfort and secretly made up his mind that when he saw Xia Sini, he would definitely interrogate him properly. If he did not do a blood test for them, he would not believe it even if he died!
After a while, Chu Wanning’s strength gradually recovered and he could get up from the bed.
“My clothes …”
He touched his lapel and was startled for a moment. He frowned, “Why is it so messy?”
Mo Ran coughed, “Cough.”
Afraid that he would remember some fragments of the past, Mo Ran hurriedly changed the topic, “Master, are you hungry? I heard that this restaurant’s dishes are good. The Wensi Tofu is especially delicious. How about we go down and try it? It’s my treat. ”
Chu Wanning coldly glanced at him, “Isn’t it because I gave you the money?”
Although he said this, he still waved his sleeves and pushed the door open to go downstairs.
Linling Yu’s dishes were similar to Yangzhou’s. They were fresh and chic, and the taste was quite sweet. This was to Chu Wanning’s liking.
At this time, the Xuanyuan Gathering had already ended, and most of the cultivators had already left. They asked for a private room, so they did not have to deliberately wear a cloak to hide their identities. After the two sat down, the waiter served two cups of Biluochun tea and left after giving them the menu.
“Master, you can take a look first.”
“You can choose whatever you want. I can eat all the dishes in the Jiangnan area,” Chu Waning said as she picked up the cup and sipped her tea.
However, when the tea touched his lips, he suddenly frowned, “…”
Mo Ran asked, “What’s wrong? Did you burn yourself? ”
“… It’s fine. Maybe it’s because the weather is too dry, the corners of my mouth are a little chapped. “Chu Wanning said and touched his lips in confusion.
Strange, when did it break?
Mo Ran immediately lowered his head guiltily.
After the dishes were all served, Chu Wanning and Mo Ran talked about the Xuanyuan Pavilion. The two left early, and they did not know who the Shenwu Flower would end up in. However, this was not a problem. When the time came, they would go out and ask around.
As they chatted, the table was gradually filled with a dazzling array of Yangzhou dishes. Chu Wanning felt that if he continued to ask, he would not get any more information, so he gave up and stopped talking about this. His gaze swept across the table full of bowls, plates, and cups. After a pause, he raised his eyes a few inches and his gaze fell on the face of the young man opposite him who was smiling somewhat nervously.
Chu Wanning asked, “Have you been to Jiangnan before?”
Before Mo Ran was reborn, he had naturally gone to see the apricot flowers and misty rain. However, he did not forget that he was only seventeen and had just entered the peak of life and death for two years. He immediately shook his head, “I’ve never been here before.”
Chu Wanning lowered his eyes. His expression was calm, and his voice was clear, “But you ordered a table full of good dishes.”
When he said this, Mo Ran suddenly realized that he ordered all the dishes according to Chu Wanning’s preferences. He originally wanted to let him eat better and recover his strength, but he forgot that he should not know Huaiyang dishes like the back of his hand.
“When I was young, I worked in the back kitchen of the music house. There are many dishes that I have not tasted, but I have heard of them.”
Chu Wanning did not dwell on it, “Let’s eat.”
Jiangnan was filled with water, and Linling Island was filled with crab in a cattail basket, shrimp in a bamboo cage, and fish in willow branches. Therefore, on the square table, there were all kinds of seafood everywhere. Crispy Liang Creek Eel with sauce, sweet and sour Squirrel Mandarin Fish, Pipa Prawns, Chrysanthemum Sea Conch, and Stewed Silver Carp Head were all fragrant.
As for fresh vegetables and meat, cold dishes and desserts, they were all exquisitely made and very elegant.
Stewed Lion’s Head with Crab Powder, Crystal Minced Pork, Chicken Sauce Shredded Cheese, Soup Dumplings, Wensi Tofu, and so on.
Mo Ran held his chin and watched the waiter put the last plate of osmanthus cake on the table. Then, he quietly looked at Chu Wanning. He thought, “I wonder which one will he eat first with so many dishes today?”
After thinking for a while, he secretly made a bet with himself.
It must be the Lion’s Head with Crab Powder.
This was Chu Wanning’s favorite Yangzhou dish. As expected, when the dishes were set, his chopsticks went to that side first without any suspense.
Mo Ran sighed in his heart. This person is always so easy to guess. Eating and doing things, he is always right …
Gulp. A round and cute Lion’s Head fell into Mo Ran’s bowl.
Mo Ran looked up in shock, and a flattered expression gradually appeared on his face, “Ma, Shizun.”
“I haven’t been feeling well these days. I’ll have to trouble you to take care of me.”
Did he hear wrongly?? Mo Ran was even more shocked.
Chu Wanning actually said to him, “I’ll have to trouble you to take care of me??”
He had never said this sentence in his previous life!
Chu Wanning saw the young man’s face slowly turn red. His brows relaxed, and his eyes slowly widened. A strand of hair on his forehead stood up and swayed. He couldn’t help but feel a little helpless, but he still wanted to save face. Grandmaster Chu took a sip of tea coldly.
My lips hurt …
In fact, during the days when he became Xia Si Ni and accompanied him, Chu Wanning had already vaguely blamed himself in his heart. When he reflected on it at night, he also felt that he was indeed too harsh. He was even more harsh to Mo Ran. From then on, he told himself that when he regained his original body, he must not do this again. He had to change a little.
When Xuanji came to the Peach Blossom Spring, Chu Wanning coughed for a long time and reluctantly asked him how to make his disciple not be so afraid of him.
Xuanji was stunned for a moment, then said, “First of all, you have to show appropriate care to your disciple.”
Show care …
Chu Wanning thought that Mo Ran might have never eaten crab meat lion’s head, so he lightly opened his mouth and said, “Stew crab meat lion’s head. Chop the pork belly finely, and add shrimp roe, crab meat, and crab roe, and make them round. Pinch the meat lion’s head and simmer it in the clear soup. Add the green vegetables floating in the soup and put it in a red clay pot. The color is very good. ”
Mo Ran was stunned.
Why did he have to memorize the recipe?
However, Chu Wanning felt that he was patiently introducing the dishes, and that it was a kind of care for his disciple. Thus, during the meal, Mo Ran tasted all the dishes one by one, and even listened to a bunch of dishes that sounded like they were memorized from “Jianghuai Food Chronicles”.
If it wasn’t for Chu Wanning’s cold and pleasant voice, Mo Ran would have flipped the table and left.
“Hey, did you hear? Xuanyuan Pavilion’s last auction item was bought by someone from Linyi Confucian Wind Sect! ”
The private rooms were separated by bamboo curtains, so the voice of the person next to them was slightly louder. Without any hindrance, Mo Ran and the others heard it clearly.
Chu Wanning suddenly stopped his introduction of the “Crystal Pork Dish” and looked at Mo Ran, listening attentively.
A boorish man spoke, “Why haven’t I heard? Is it the Divine Weapon? The price of three hundred million gold was paid on the spot. Aiyo, it’s really a sky-high price, I’ve never seen so much money in my life. ”
“Look at you, don’t you know that other than the Divine Weapon, the Confucian Wind Sect also spent fifty million to buy the Butterfly Bone Beauty Seat!”
“Heavens, isn’t the Butterfly Bone Beauty Seat used to eat raw or dual cultivate? The number one sect in the world is actually doing such a despicable act of cultivation. This is too outrageous! ”
“Brother Su is wrong, the Butterfly Bone Beauty Seat is a reasonable cultivation method, it’s not a forbidden technique. Although the Beauty Seat looks similar to us, it’s not a mortal in the end. It’s like eating an immortal fruit to help one’s cultivation, there’s nothing to criticize. ”
“Humph, forgive me for not agreeing …”
Another person chuckled, “The one who bought the Beauty Seat seems to be a reclusive young disciple of the Confucian Wind Sect, called Ye something Xi. I heard that he looks quite decent, but I didn’t expect him to be the kind of person who relies on sleeping with women to increase his cultivation. I think the Confucian Wind Sect is also at dusk. ”
Someone next to them chuckled, “What’s wrong with that, everyone has a heart for beauty.”
The people next to them began to argue about ethics and morality, it wasn’t worth listening to.
Chu Wanning softly repeated, “The Divine Weapon was bought by the Confucian Wind Sect?”
“It sounds that way.”
Chu Wanning couldn’t help but reveal a worried expression, “That’s difficult. If this matter is traced, we’ll have to go to the Confucian Wind Sect to investigate … ”
As soon as he said this, Mo Ran remembered and softly said, “Master was originally from the Confucian Wind Sect.”
“You don’t want to go back?”
At the mention of returning to the Confucian Wind Sect, Chu Wanning’s expression became weary, his eyebrows twitching as he said, “Although this sect is a famous sect in the upper cultivation world, I once …”
Halfway through his words, a clamor suddenly came from the hall. Someone shouted, “Lady Boss, I’ll give you five hundred gold, immediately clear the place and drive these guests out! Today, our Young Lord wants to book the whole place! “
