On a cold winter day, steaming hot food would give most people an appetite. This was what XiaoLan meticulously prepared for.
XiaoLan hastened to push the congee back. She smiled, “Xiaojie, you haven’t eaten hot foods in awhile. Quickly eat. I’ll go to the kitchen to see if there are any other small dishes to add.”
She quickly ran out of the room and shut the door behind her.
The door opening and shutting caused cold wind to drift inside. The wind blew the hot steam from the food into Qi RongYue’s nose and mouth.
“En. It’s really very fragrant. But this fragrance will take lives!” She picked up the congee and ate it all slowly, spoonful by spoonful. She also ate half of the small dishes. It was only the fragrant steaming meat buns that she didn’t even take one bite of.
She left her room after eating. She accidentally saw a crouching, peeping XiaoLan. XiaoLan’s face was filled with annoyance. Was she annoyed that she didn’t eat the meticulously prepared steamed meat buns? Or was she annoyed that she wasted the poison in the steamed meat buns?
“Xiaojie, what are you doing out here? It’s cold out. Your body hasn’t recovered yet!” Wang pozi saw Qi RongYue standing in the doorway. She hurriedly threw away the needlework in her hands and came forward to warn her.
Of course, she wasn’t really concerned about Qi RongYue. She came forward to see if she ate the meat buns on the table. But she actually didn’t eat them!
Qi RongYue’s cold eyes swept over Wang pozi. She lightly said, “I have something for you to do!”
Wang pozi immediately gave a false smile. “Xiaojie, please tell me anything you want done. I will go do it!” She was only a girl who was about to die, what business did she have?
Qi RongYue said, “Call a slave-dealer over for me. I want to buy a girl!”
Wang pozi’s eyes quickly swept over XiaoLan. She asked, puzzled, “Doesn’t Xiaojie have XiaoLan to serve you? Why are you buying another girl?”
