Yin Jinglin was about to turn around and leave when he suddenly stopped in his tracks and said with a smile, “I remember Old Madam Xia saying that Xia Mengyan is more capable than Xi Xi. That’s true. In terms of shamelessness, Xi Xi is indeed inferior to Xia Mengyan. There’s no one in the entire Yin family who can compare to Xia Mengyan.
“If there’s a competition to compete in narcissism and shamelessness, Xia Mengyan must participate. Maybe she can bring glory to the Xia family!”
Qiao Xi: “…” ‘Fifth Brother’s mouth was quite vicious!’
As soon as he finished speaking, Yin Jinglin turned around and left. Su Dongjun and his disciples also walked past Xia Mengyan and left as if looking at her was a waste of time.
Xia Mengyan had been high and mighty since she was young. She had never been looked down on like this. She was so angry that her face was livid. She gritted her teeth. However, she had been taught by Xia Cheng since she was young. In front of so many people, she naturally could not lose her dignity. Moreover, today was her apprenticeship banquet. She had to remain calm and complete the apprenticeship banquet.
Fortunately, the guests did not come just now and did not know what was going on. She could only suppress the anger and unwillingness in her heart and pretend that nothing had happened. She followed everyone back to the private room.
However, Old Madam Xia and Xia Yunlou were not as calm. Old Madam Xia was so angry that her head was spinning and she was panting heavily. Fortunately, Xia Ji, who was at the side, hurriedly supported her. Otherwise, she would definitely have fallen to the floor.
Xia Yunlou shouted unwillingly, “That little b*tch clearly cheated, yet the Yin family still treats her as a treasure! Are they blind? What right does she have to compare herself to Mengyan?”
Xia Cheng’s face darkened as he interrupted her unhappily. “Stop arguing. What happened just now was just a small episode. Mengyan’s apprenticeship banquet is the most important event today. Fang Shiyun will be here soon. At that time, Mengyan will become the focus of everyone’s attention. Who will care about the misunderstanding just now?”
Hearing his words, everyone gradually calmed down.
At this moment, Song Shiyu had already taken off his strange beard and was wiping his face with a wet towel. Qiao Xi looked at Su Dongjun, who was not far away. She asked curiously, “Is he really a top chef? He even wants to cook for Cousin?”
Song Shiyu said firmly, “Of course! I heard that Young Master Yin likes Su Dongjun’s dishes, so that’s why he came.”
Qiao Xi hurriedly asked, “You said that the top chef was asked to come here. Were you the one who invited him?”
“Yes!” Song Shiyu nodded like a chick pecking on rice, looking forward to being praised.
Qiao Xi frowned and stared fixedly at Su Dongjun’s back. This was strange. She heard that this top chef had a strange temper and was arrogant. It was not easy to invite him to cook.
It would be fine if Gu Zheng had invited Su Dongjun over, but Song Shiyu was just Gu Zheng’s assistant. How could he know Su Dongjun and seem to be very familiar with him?
Su Dongjun was not just a chef. The apprentices he nurtured and the restaurants under his name were all over the country. He was a top figure in the country. Even her teacher did not dare to provoke such a figure.
Qiao Xi hesitated for a moment. “Um…”
Song Shiyu looked at her and roughly understood what she meant. She was just curious about how he knew Su Dongjun. How should he answer?
Just as Song Shiyu was hesitating about what to say, he heard Qiao Xi gulp. She then looked at him expectantly. “If there’s time, can you ask Mr. Su to make a few dishes for me? I want to take them home.”
Song Shiyu: “…” That was it?
Qiao Xi wanted to cry but had no tears. She did not know what was wrong with her recently. The poison in Gu Zheng’s body had clearly been cured, but she still did not have a sense of taste. Without Gu Zheng’s kisses, everything she ate was tasteless.
She had bumped into a top chef today! It would be too tragic if she did not have a sense of taste. Coincidentally, Gu Zheng was not around either. She wanted to take some food back and eat it with Gu Zheng. Good things had to be shared.
On the other hand, when Yin Lianxin heard that the top chef had arrived, a trace of surprise flashed through her eyes, but she did not ask further.
Yin Jinglin was so happy that he almost jumped up. He remembered that when he was young, he was lucky enough to try the dishes of the top chef once. After that, he had been thinking about it for so many years. Today, Mr. Su was here to celebrate his birthday for him. This was the best birthday gift he had received!
After a while, delicious dishes were served. Yin Jinglin gulped excitedly and hurriedly picked up his chopsticks to take a bite.
Yes! This was the taste! It was too delicious!
The other members of the Yin family also picked up their chopsticks to taste the food. Even though Yin Lianxin had seen the world, her eyes could not help but be filled with surprise.
