Spending only five to six hours a day to cook spirit dishes for Ji Mo Ya was enough. Ji Mo Ya was also not a picky person and ate whatever she made, he also did not need her to serve him anymore, this somehow gave Huan Qing Yan a tiny feeling of disappointment.
With that, Huan Qing Yan invested all her remaining time into the dimension for cultivation training, allowing her to spend more than fifteen days on average within the dimension daily.
The spirit energy accumulating within her body also began to reach maximum capacity, while her pig spirit treasure would normally be in the state of sleep if she does not summon it. Sometimes, when Huan Qing Yan cooked up an extraordinarily fragrant dish, the pig spirit would appear and greet her with a couple of grunts. However, it was unable to eat as its body was still in an illusionary state, so all it could do was stare pitifully with its eyes.
Five days went by peacefully in that manner.
Huan Qing Yan was currently about to start preparing dinner when a serving girl came with some instructions.
“The Young Master has instructed for dinner to start earlier tonight and to add two more dishes, there is a guest joining him for dinner.”
A guest? Huan Qing Yan’s eyes shined.
All men were concerned about reputation, if she could do a good job and make a sumptuous dinner tonight, it would improve his standing in front of his guest. When that happens, would she create a better impression in him?
Therefore, Huan Qing Yan spent extra effort and created as many as eighteen dishes.
Of which, the dish that she was most proud of was the Dragon Body Phoenix Tail Prawn.
When the sun was about to set, a line of serving girls queued up outside the kitchen to collect and transport the dishes in special boxes.
“Young Master Ji Mo is not coming here to have his meal today?” Huan Qing Yan was rather surprised as Ji Mo Ya would always come over to the kitchen to have his meals.
“Although our Young Master is casual about where he had his meals normally, not this time as there is a guest today. Therefore, the Young Master ordered us to bring the food to his place instead.” The serving girl politely replied.
So that’s why.
Huan Qing Yan’s little plan was to receive praises from the guest due to her food, this would indirectly increase Ji Mo Ya’s face where she hoped to earn a salary raise or boost her spirit by earning his praises on the spot. However, it looks like it would no longer be possible.
“So be it. The last dish, Dragon Body Phoenix Tail Prawn, still needs some finishing touches and would be ready soon. I will bring it over personally, so that it would not cause additional trouble to you.”
The serving girl was silent for a moment before she replied, “Ok. Then I will have to trouble you.”
After she finished speaking, she led the rest of her peers away and towards their young master’s place, each of them carrying a box holding a dish.
Huan Qing Yan quickly performed the finishing touch of pouring sauce on top of the Dragon Body Phoenix Tail Prawn before packing it into a box and headed over to Ji Mo Ya’s accommodations.
When she first arrived at the Aged Consulate, the servant reminded her not to move about randomly, plus she also focused her efforts on cultivating. Therefore, other than the kitchen, she had never visited any other place within the estate.
This was also the first time she was going to Ji Mo Ya’s accommodation.
When she arrived, the night had fallen, the yellow lamps surrounding the Aged Consulate were lit, lighting up their surroundings.
Especially, the lamps hanging at the four corners of the main building, they were so bright that it made their surroundings look like daylight.
As she was about to enter the building, she heard a feminine laugh coming from inside…
“The taste of this spirit dish is pretty good; Young Master Ji Mo truly has good judgement at selecting people. It was said that the Sprit Chef Selection did not reach the third round because you directly chose the Spirit Chef after the second round ended. This princess really would like to see who is this person that caught Young Master Ji Mo’s eye…”
