Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 557
The Lucky Star Control Corporation in the 70s (55)
All of them looked at Chu Xiang, waiting for her answer. Chu Xiang stood up and patted off the mud on her hands, thought for a moment and said, “Well…I don’t mind teaching you, but this mission is very important, isn’t it? The slightest slip can cost a life, so I’d better train honestly and give myself an extra layer of protection. Let’s talk about the rest later.”
She walked towards Yin Xu in the disappointed eyes of everyone. “Where is the kitchen? I’ll go and cook everyone something to eat.”
Someone immediately replied, “No, no, Sister Xiang. You have worked so hard in the assessment. Go and take a rest, don’t mind us.”
Chu Xiang looked back at them and said, “How can that work? I promised to make food for everyone. I should show my gratitude, right? Otherwise, how can I be worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm? Is Commander free? Do you want to come along too?”
The Commander was just about to have a good chat with her, and so he nodded: “These guys are all beasts when it comes to food. Xiao Chu, you should prepare more. Let’s go, to the cafeteria.”
“Oh~ To the cafeteria!” After seeing Chu Xiang’s ability, everyone’s attitude towards her was much better. Seeing her being so gentle and kind, and even though she scolded them just now, she still wanted to cook food for them. This sister-in-law was awesome. Everyone was very happy.
While they were heading to the cafeteria, Chu Xiang first ran to take a shower and changed into a camouflage uniform, then plunged into the kitchen to make a huge pot of dough drop soup.
The soldiers who thought she was going to cook were a little disappointed, but they soon smelled the tempting aroma. Several soldiers sniffed and smelled the fragrance over there, looking expectantly. “Brother Xu, Sister-in-law’s dough drop soup is delicious! Is she an expert cook?”
Yin Xu took a sip of water from a teapot and replied slowly, “Chu Xiang’s cooking is the best meal I have ever eaten in my life.”
“Oooh~ Brother Xu’s honeyed love talk! Sister-in-law, Brother Xu has something nice to say to you!”
No one expected that Yin Xu, who has always been serious in the army, would utter such love talk. He was simply doting on her too much. The crowd immediately broke into an uproarious laughter.
Chu Xiang glanced out from the kitchen window and smiled at them. A soldier sighed: “Sister-in-law is too amazing, right? We will be blessed in the future. That’s too fragrant, it must be very tasty.”
The impression of Chu Xiang in their hearts was getting better by the second, and their favor for her has skyrocketed. Even the Commander smiled and praised, “Yin Xu, where did you find such a treasure? You’re really something. You seem to have retired from the army, haven’t you?”
Yin Xu looked at Chu Xiang, smiled inexplicably, nodded and said, “She’s indeed a treasure. She has the final say in everything in our family. You will find out later.”
“Brother Xu, you can’t do this, you’re too afraid of your wife.” Everyone joked and laughed at Yin Xu. After a while, someone from the kitchen team helped bring the dough drop soup.
The fragrance was truly tempting, and it made everyone drool. Yin Xu could see from their eyes that they were looking forward to food, it was indeed fragrant.
However, when Li Dong served a bowl to him, he rejected it, “I always eat it at home. This time, you can taste it. Thank you for your warm hospitality to Chu Xiang today.”
“That’s right. Thank you for your warm welcome. Eat quickly, eat more, and don’t waste food.” Chu Xiang also came over, smiling harmlessly.
Everyone blew, and they all took a big gulp from their bowls.
“Hmm!” As soon as a spoon of soup entered their mouths, the expectant expressions on everyone immediately turned indescribable.
Sweet! It was too sweet! So sweet that they almost lost their heads!!!
The problem was, even if it was unbearably sweet, they could still taste the aroma of the dough drop soup. Meaning, each of them knew clearly that if Chu Xiang hadn’t put sugar as salt, this nugget soup would definitely have been a top-notch delicacy.
A sprinkle of sugar ruined the succulence. They were so close to having something sumptuous! This huge gap made everyone feel a sense of regret and loss.
Chu Xiang smiled and asked, “Is it delicious?”
The Commander frowned and said, “Xiao Chu, did you take sugar for salt? It’s too sweet. What’s the matter?”
Chu Xiang showed a surprised expression. “Don’t you like it? Oh, I thought everyone should eat something sweet when you’re feeling joyous. However, I didn’t expect you to dislike it. It seems that we should agree on something in advance. I shouldn’t take matters into my own hands and give others a hard time.”
The Commander coughed, “Xiao Chu, are you insinuating something? Do you have any opinions or misunderstandings about everyone?”
Chu Xiang said, still smilingly, “How could that be? I like you all very much, and I’m looking forward to having a chat with you. I added just the right amount of sugar to replenish everyone’s physical strength. Let’s have a game later. I think it’s much more interesting here than in school. Don’t worry, Commander, I like this way of communication very much.”
Everyone looked at her and didn’t believe a word of what she said. They finally knew what a smiling tiger was. In short, they would do everything without betraying a clue and with a smile on their faces.
It was a pity that they thought their Sister-in-law was good-natured, gentle and kind. It turned out that the trap was here. There was no doubt that such an alluring fragrance hooked out their greedy worms, but as a result, they ended up drinking such a sweet soup. They couldn’t waste food, so they could only force themselves to swallow it. It was too uncomfortable.
The key was that they initiated making things difficult for her. Thus, they were too embarrassed to even argue. At this point, they also reacted. Yin Xu admitted earlier that he was afraid of his wife. He was telling the truth, all right. No wonder he didn’t eat a single bite. He had expected that Chu Xiang would find a way to return their favor.
