Chapter 428: A Hearty Meal

Zhao Qian wiped his sweat in relief and quickly hightailed out of the place.

Holding Lu Liangwei’s hand, Long Yang got up and walked to the table.

Lu Liangwei looked at the food box on the table and gulped. “What’s inside?”

Glancing at her with a smile, Long Yang opened the food box with one hand and took out the contents one by one.

A pleasant aroma instantly drifted throughout the entire house.

“Wow, it’s liangpi.” Lu Liangwei’s eyes lit up at the sight of the food on the table. “And there’s sweet soup, too.” (TN: Liangpi is a noodle-like dish served cold. Sweet soup is a cooling dessert containing ingredients like barley, red bean, ginkgo, grass jelly, etc.)

Seeing her delighted expression, Long Yang felt that the imperial kitchen had done well with their newly developed snack. He would definitely give them a raise after going back.

He put a pair of chopsticks into her hand. “Help yourself. These are newly developed by the imperial kitchen.”

Lu Liangwei did not hold back and sat down right away, ready to indulge in the food.

After sitting down, she realized that the stool underneath her felt a little strange today. However, right then her attention was fully captured by the food in front of her, so she did not spare it an extra look.

She dragged the plate of liangpi toward her, then lowered her head and started eating.

She had wanted to make liangpi some time ago, but she had a lot to do for Grandmother’s approaching birthday, so she set the idea aside. She would never have expected that Long Yang would order the imperial kitchen to make this dish.

She loved this kind of snack the most, especially in summer. It felt cool in her mouth, and the texture was wonderful.

However, the taste was still a little lacking. It would be even more delicious if complemented by some shredded cucumber.

She was so focused on tasting the food in front of her that she did not realize she was sitting on someone’s lap.

Long Yang did not make any moves and just let her sit on his lap. Watching her satisfied face while eating was enjoyable enough.

Spotting a book on the table, he grabbed it and flipped through its pages.

After finishing the liangpi and sweet soup, Lu Liangwei finally remembered something. She glanced around, but there was no sign of Long Yang. Just when she was about to look behind her, she heard a man’s gentle voice from above her head. “Are you done?”

Lu Liangwei nodded. “Yes.” She turned her head slowly to look, then suddenly stopped moving.

After a long moment, she gasped in disbelief, “Why are you under me?”

“Hmm?” Long Yang raised an eyebrow and looked at her in amusement. “Under you?”

Lu Liangwei blushed. “Aren’t you?” There was no way she could say ‘under my butt’, could she?

Long Yang stared at her small flushed face in silence, then nodded. “Yes, but after I took my seat earlier, you came and sat here anyway.”

Lu Liangwei flushed even redder.

It turned out she had actually treated Long Yang as a chair and sat on him.

Moreover, she sat on his lap the whole time as she stuffed her face with food and drink.

Lu Liangwei was embarrassed and a little exasperated. “You could have reminded me.”

“Why should I? You’re not heavy.” Long Yang was unbothered.

Was it a question of her weight?

Lu Liangwei was at a loss for words.

However, she had already sat on him, and she could not go back in time to undo it.

Long Yang reminded her, “You can get up now.”

Lu Liangwei hurriedly stood up.

Long Yang did not get up right away but said with a smile, “Don’t be nervous. It’s not a big deal.”

“I’m not nervous.” Lu Liangwei put the empty dishes away, planning to have Zhu Yu wash them later.

“Was the food delicious?” Long Yang changed the subject, raising one leg and crossing it over the other.

Lu Liangwei was a little puzzled by the sight, but although that action of his certainly lacked elegance, she felt that it did not compromise his beauty at all.

“Yes.” She nodded, her mood brightened after the hearty meal, and said sincerely, “Your imperial chef back home has amazing culinary skills.”

Long Yang gazed at her and said pointedly, “Soon, my home will become yours.”
