Chapter 42: Chapter 42 Dog Bite Dog 3
Yun Qianyu took the knife, carried the rabbit, and walked to one side.
Behind her, both Xiao Yechen and Hua Mei looked at each other, speechless. When they say her leisurely expression when skinning the rabbit, the other two felt chills. Her actions were natural and unrestrained; it was as though she was not skinning the rabbit, but doing something elegant.
Both Xiao Yechen and Hua Mei had goosebumps at the thought.
Hopefully, the young miss wouldn't be this calm when killing a person.
In front of them, Yun Qianyu ordered, "Bring me some water."
Hua Mei hurriedly went to fetch water. Yun Qianyu cleaned the rabbit then used the herbs she had found from the garden. After stuffing the rabbit with herbs and more, she packed it tightly and buried it below some charcoal.
The three gathered around the fire to chat.
Yun Qianyu looked at Xiao Yechen and said, "the night is deep, Prince Xiao should go back."
Xiao Yechen looked at her and said, "don't call me Prince Xiao. Call me Xiao Yechen. There's no need to be so formal."
"Alright. Xiao Yechen, Isn't it time for you to go back?"
Xiao Yechen looked up at the night sky and saw how late it was. It was time to go back to have a rest. But he thought of the rabbit that Yun Qianyu was preparing and wanted to give it a try.
"I want to try the rabbit leg."
"Aright, you can have one." Yun Qianyu agreed to give him some.
The three didn't speak until the rabbit was ready; Yun Qianyu then took the rabbit out from the ground.
Since the rabbit was cooked below the ground, there wasn't much smell. But when it was taken out, the aroma immediately attracted the other two. Xiao Yechen and Hua Mei couldn't help but stare at the rabbit in Yun Qianyu's hand.
Yun Qianyu tore a thigh for Xiao Yechen and a thigh for Hua Mei. Then the three ate the rabbit under the dark night.
"It's delicious, so delicious. I've never eaten such a delicious rabbit leg before," Xiao Yechen said.
Hua Mei also nodded repeatedly, "Yes, the young miss's cooking is excellent."
Yun Qianyu tugged at the corner of her mouth and said, "The rabbit is wrapped with lotus leaves while several spices in its belly. If we had more time, the rabbit could be marinated first. That way, the meat would be tender and full of flavor."
When Yun Qianyu said that, she stopped because she thought of her adoptive father. Her father liked to eat the things she made. Because she was a picky eater, she always thought that the things others made were not satisfactory and learned how to cook.
After some time, her cooking surprisingly got better and better. It got to a point where her adoptive father would feel uncomfortable after not eating her food for some time.
"Little feather, quickly make some delicious food for your father."
Still, no matter what food she made now, her adoptive father could not eat it.
Yun Qianyu finished her portion, got up, and went back to her room. As she walked away, she told Hua Mei and Xiao Yechen, "After you two are done eating, bury the remains of the rabbit at the third young miss, Yun Qianyue's residence. Oh, remember to make it somewhat obvious."
Yun Qianyu said that and left. Xiao Yechen was surprised,
Such a person may be able to help him in the future. It seemed that what he did today was correct.
Xiao Yechen and Hua Mei ate the rest of the rabbit meat and finally cleaned up the rabbit bones and skin.
