Huan Dong Hai’s motive was likely not trivial things like the shops or the money but the Thousand-Year-Old Soup of the Huan Family.
This was the most valuable item that they possessed!
Huan Qing Yan was having a big headache on the problem of how to protect this pot of soup.
While deep in her thoughts, she unknowingly found herself in front of the Soup Tower.
This was the most secured place of the Huan Estate, it was filled with contraptions that would prevent anyone who was not familiar with the place from entering.
Huan Qing Yan held Huan Xing Han’s hand as she guided him to avoid the contraptions as they entered the place.
“Ah ah?” the alarmed voice of Huan Jiu Li was heard.
“It’s me, Brother Jiu Li.”
Huan Jiu Li appeared from a dark corner with a smile as he greeted them “Ah ah ah…”
“We are here to look at the soup.”
Huan Jiu Li accompanied the siblings into the basement of the tower.
The pot of soup was located at the third subterranean level of the tower, it was an empty circular space that was made of Green Stone.
The soup pot was made from Millennia Cold Steel and was about three meters in diameter. Within the pot were eight smaller versions of itself while each small pot possessed a soup of a different color.
They were: Teal, White, Yellow, Green, Purple, Black, Red and Blue. Each small pot also emitted a different fragrance.
“Xing Han, these are the eight different soup bases of our Aged Soup. One must match the right soup base with the food they are preparing to obtain the greatest effect. Do you wish to have a taste of it?” Huan Qing Yan was trying to prank him.
The young Xing Han was gullible at his young age plus he knew nothing, so he replied, “Yes.”
Huan Qing Yan took a very long soup ladle and took some soup bases for her brother to try.
After he tried teal, white and yellow soups, little Xing Han began to roll out his tongue and pant like a little puppy…
“Hah… Sis, the taste is funny…”
Huan Jiu Li had long prepared a cup of water on the side and passed it to Xing Han.
Huan Qing Yan covered her mouth and laughed, “As a Spirit Chef, your taste buds need to be exceptionally sharp. Little fella, you still have a long way to go…”
Little Xing Han continued to pant.
“Brother Jiu Li, as my Papa’s disciple, you must have learnt quite a number of things while observing him when he cooked. Have you learnt how to prepare food that could boost the stamina attribute?” Huan Qing Yan asked.
Huan Jiu Li shook his head and started gesturing with his hands but it was too complex to understand.
A Spirit Chef could be split into the following levels: Basic, Intermediate, High, Master, Grandmaster and Legendary.
Huan Bei Ming was at Master level but Huan Jiu Li was a Three-Star Spirit Master, an Intermediate Spirit Chef and therefore was unable to cook food that possessed additional attributes.
“That’s unfortunate. Now that Papa is gone, the skill and method is likely lost now.” Huan Qing Yan sighed.
Huan Jiu Li suddenly turned around and ran off.
However, he returned shortly while hugging a stack of papers, the contents on all these papers seemed to be handwritten.
He gestured to Huan Qing Yan and acted as though he was a sick Huan Bei Ming writing on these papers.
“Are you saying that these were written by Papa not too long ago? These are cooking recipes left behind for us siblings?” Huan Qing Yan managed to guess after some effort.
Huan Jiu Li nodded his head in acknowledgement.
Huan Qing Yan received the papers from him and noticed that the words were rather fresh, it was indeed just written not too long ago. From the memories of the reincarnated girl, the contents were Huan Bei Ming’s handwriting.
Papa had made such efforts to avoid the skills from being lost, she must not waste his efforts and she decided to try one of the recipes now.
Since she is a Spirit Master now, she could also learn the Spirit Chef techniques.
She rolled up her sleeves and exposed the Spirit Ring on her wrist. Her pig spirit treasure was true to its species and was still asleep after chomping away half of that rat spirit.
Fortunately, she was yet to meet any enemies since then, if she were to be in a situation of facing an enemy, she would not be able to rely on this unreliable pig for her rescue.
