Chapter 513: Making Starch Noodles (3)


Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios


There was only half a basin of starch, and they were quickly made into starch noodles. It looked like there were a lot of them, and when hung on the branches, they looked like big waterfalls.


Although there was only one perforated ladle, they came out in different thickness, having a greater texture.


Bai Qingqing immediately added a bowl of starch noodles into the hotpot. The familiar food made her extremely satisfied.


Bai Qingqing thought of air-drying the hung up starch noodles, but the temperature was too low. By the time she finished a bowl of noodles, the rest had already frozen up into ice strips.


Forget it. They wouldn’t spoil even if they had become frozen. Just leave them like this. She hoped that this wouldn’t affect their texture.


Bai Qingqing remembered that Becky liked to eat stone fruits, so she prepared a bowl of noodles for her as well. It had cooled down a little by now. Thus, she brought it over.


When Ford saw her, he was very happy and quickly got her to come in.


“Is this the food you guys made today?”


Ford took a look at the bowl, paused for a very long while, before he found a suitable term to say, “It’s very special.”


“Hehe, they’re made from stone fruits. You can’t tell, right?”


Bai Qingqing raised the bowl and then smiled as she walked over to Becky, who was in a corner.


Ford was astonished.


Cat-typed beastmen all had a strong sense of curiosity. Ford walked over in a few big strides, staring at the thin and long food in the bowl, and said, “This… doesn’t look like stone fruits at all. Were they cut into strips using a stone blade?”


Bai Qingqing sat down next to Becky, nodding, and said, “This is a long story. If Becky likes it, I can teach you.”


Ford smiled. “Alright.”


Becky stared at the bowl, craving reflected in her eyes. However, she didn’t snatch it like she usually did, but instead, looked at Bai Qingqing’s face.


Bai Qingqing was elated. Becky’s condition had improved again!


“Becky?”


She only looked up and threw a glance at Bai Qingqing before her gaze landed on the food again.


Bai Qingqing tried to speak to her again but still didn’t get any reply.


Becky was recovering every day. By the time she became a real couple with Ford, she should be able to fully recover.


“Have a taste. You’re a carnivore. Although this is made from stone fruits, the impurities have been removed. I don’t know if you’ll like it.” Bai Qingqing handed her the bowl with a wooden fork.


Becky received it, then held the fork to lift the starch noodles. She wasn’t able to get it up, so she just scooped them into her mouth.


As the texture was very novel, Becky was a little stunned after taking a bite. She then continued to eat as if nothing had happened. Bai Qingqing had no idea if she liked it or if she just didn’t say no to food.


Seeing that Becky had eaten it, Ford said decisively, “I’ll learn it. Please teach me. I’ll take responsibility for all of the stone fruits you need in the future.”


Bai Qingqing smiled. “No need. I’ll eat a lot, so I’d be taking advantage of you in that case. Oh right, are there a lot of stone fruit trees in the village? Would I end up eating all of them? The other females will complain about me, right?”


Ford said, “Don’t worry. There aren’t many who like to eat stone fruits. Becky only likes the red stone fruits as well. I saw that the ones your male dug were all yellow ones. No one eats those.”


Bai Qingqing was speechless.


Thank goodness Winston didn’t understand this and had dug out all the stone fruits. Otherwise, she’d have to miss out on such delicious potatoes.


Beastmen were all honest and stubborn. Ford insisted on trading with stone fruits, and Bai Qingqing had no choice but to nod in agreement.


However, she wasn’t planning to get his help when she needed stone fruits.


When the sky turned dark, the tree hole became so dark that she couldn’t see her own hands. Bai Qingqing quickly left with the empty bowl.


The moon outside was very bright, and the land that was covered in snow was a lot brighter than in summer.


Bai Qingqing and Parker headed back home, holding hands. She suddenly sensed a gaze staring at her and looked over.


There was no one there but a pile of accumulated snow.


What she didn’t see was that a pair of eyes had sunk into the snow pile and some of the snow had fallen.


Parker’s ears twitched, and he looked over with a sharp gaze. “Who’s there?”
