Chapter 1565: It Tasted Like Mother’s Cooking
Little Grape was only three years old. He found the spoon unhelpful and applied his fingers instead.
“Little Grape, how could you…”
Huo Yunshen found it very improper and tried to correct him. But Auntie Lan smiled and stopped him. She was trying to remind him that as long as the little prince was willing to eat, he should not be worried about his manners now.
Huo Yunshen said nothing further. But he did wonder how the wonton noodle could be so yummy.
It smelled good indeed.
“Seriously is that so good?”
Seeing her brother enjoying it, Ying Bao tried one piece and found it indeed yummy.
It even tasted like her mother’s cooking!
“Yummy! So yummy! I want one more!”
Seeing his sister coming for his food again, Little Grape took away his bowl and complained. “No more for you! I’m running out!”
“You stingy boy! Just one more!”
“No way! Not even one!”
Huo Yunshen was speechless upon witnessing the scene. It would make a big joke if others saw it.
How could a prince and a princess fight over some wonton noodles?
The children were finally willing to eat. Auntie Lan was very pleased and said, “Don’t worry. We’ve got more. I’ll have them served.”
In a short while Auntie Lan delivered two more bowls of wonton noodles. Ying Bao and Little Grape were finally satisfied.
They had not been eating properly for a long while. Seeing them indulging in the food, Huo Yunshen asked, “Is the wonton noodle really that yummy?”
Auntie Lan was surprised. “Your Majesty, would you like to try some too?”
“Er… I suppose, yes.”
Huo Yunshen was embarrassed. It felt awkward to be jealous of the children’s food.
Auntie Lan said nothing and got another serving for the king immediately.
The wonton noodle was placed in front of Huo Yunshen. It seemed to be a simple wonton noodle with merely some meat paste.
He tried one piece and was stunned.
It had been two years since he’d actually tasted anything. And just now he was reminded of it.
Huo Yunshen had not had proper meals for a long while either. He finished the wonton noodle as well as the soup, and even felt like he wanted some more.
It felt like he was afraid of not being able to taste it again.
Seeing him having a great appetite today, Auntie Lan asked, “Your Majesty, would you like one more?”
“No, thank you.”
One should always control his desire. He knew it well.
Having enjoyed the dish, he asked, “Who cooked the wonton noodle? It was good.”
“Your Majesty, it was the new nanny for our prince, Jin Xiaoxi. You met her earlier on in the hallway,” Auntie Lan answered frankly.
Huo Yunshen asked, “What Jin? And What Xi?”
“Jin as in gold, Xi as in hope.”
Not only their figures, but even their names were similar.
Huo Yunshen remembered the woman in the veil. She was not pretty. But she cooked really well.
One should indeed not be judged by her appearance.
After lunch, both Huo Yunshen and the two children were satisfied.
Little Grape, as a three-year-old, even had two bowls of wonton noodles for one meal.
“Daddy, I’m finished. Can I go play?” Little Grape asked.
