“Huan Family’s Aged Soup?” Huan Qing Yan lightly smiled, “Let me explain to the two dear sirs about our Huan Family’s Aged Soup first. Despite its name, our Huan Family’s Aged Soup does not refer to only one type of soup but it possesses eight different type of soups. To create a dish that possesses the trait of boosting one’s stamina attribute, the chef must add the soup in the right sequence. After my papa passed away, I am the only one who knows how to cook dishes that can boost the stamina attribute, no one else can do so! To put it simply, the Aged Soup of the Huan Family can be used by me and only me alone, even if I give it to you, it will be useless in your hands.”
The man called Plague Chicken impatiently cut off Huan Qing Yan’s speech, “You do not need to worry about this, there are countless Spirit Chefs in this world. If a young lady like you could unlock the mystery of the Aged Soup, there will surely be other Spirit Chefs who are stronger than you and are able to do the same. Cut your crap now, if not, we will also demand the soup’s recipe on top of the Aged Soup.”
As expected, same as the previous life, there were two groups of people in this plot.
One group belonged to Huan Meng Yue that focused on causing trouble while the other group was targeting the soup…
Although Huan Meng Yue was relying on the Ninth Prince, she ultimately was still a person with a low cultivation level, it was still impossible for her to command Mid-Rank Spirit Masters that were more powerful than her. Therefore, the only method she could use was a collaboration.
Huan Meng Yue provided the intel while the other group provided the men.
But who is the real mastermind behind these men?
Huan Qing Yan shook her head, “That cannot happen. If you want the soup, our Huan Family can surely give a portion of each type of soup to you, but we will never give up the recipe. The recipe is the foundation of our family. My papa had told this to us before when he was alive, ‘The recipe is being tied to our family, if the family perishes, the recipe is to perish along with us!’”
“Fine then, we will throw your little brother into that underground river first. I really would like to see if what you say is true, will the recipe perish when the Huan Family no longer has anyone to carry on the family line…” Plague Chicken stretched his hand and the illusion of a snake-shaped spirit treasure appeared like a sharp sword from his hand. It instantly slashed the ropes that were tying the siblings together.
Huan Qing Yan fell onto the ground after she was separated from Huan Xing Han but she reacted quickly and managed to instantly reposition herself by standing in front of Huan Xing Han, shielding him.
She loudly shouted, “Wait! I can give you the recipe with one condition, both of you must not harm either of us…”
The masked boss cruelly replied, “You are the only hostage we need while your brother is just extra baggage. You are in no position to negotiate, one recipe for one life, who will you choose?”
After he spoke, he got his Big Eye Beast Spirit Treasure to face Huan Xing Han and display a swallowing motion, showing how it would swallow him up in one gulp.
Huan Xing Han was frightened and immediately hugged Huan Qing Yan from behind her, “Sis, I am afraid.”
Huan Qing Yan gritted her teeth, “Then I naturally pick my younger brother. Release him first, I will hand over the recipe after he has safely returned.”
Huan Xing Han’s expression was alarmed for a moment, despite his age he could already understand the contents of their conversation. He unconsciously tightened his hug on Huan Qing Yan while looking at Huan Qing Yan with his big grape sized teary eyes and said, “I want Sis, I want Sis, we go home together…”
Huan Qing Yan lightly caressed his head, “Little bro, be obedient, Mama is especially worried about you, so you should return home first. Head over to the palace to look for Brother Jiu Li, instruct him to get the recipe hidden within the Aged Soup Tower…”
Suddenly, the masked boss’s ears perked up as he once again stuck his ear against the stone wall.
His expression changed.
“So, after one big round, the recipe is actually not on you. If that is the case, then I am sorry to say that the situation has changed. We do not have the time for you to return home and get the recipe. We will release one person if you have the recipe, if there is no recipe on you then this place will be the grave for the two of you!”
“Why would we carry such an important thing on us?” Huan Qing Yan replied with confidence and conviction. She had also noticed that someone might be approaching them, and that person might be Little Feather, the servants of their estate or even the constables.
She must do whatever she can to drag this out till help arrives!
