Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 164
“Grandma, this is for you.”
Fu Shuo, who had been silent, picked up a piece of sweet and sour pork and placed it in Fu Ting’s bowl.
Fu Ting smiled at him but didn’t say anything. Instead, she said to Fu Xianyun, “Your father said that you insisted on coming here. What exactly happened?”
With Fu Xianyun’s intelligence, coming to a small place like Huang Yang Town to be a county magistrate was a waste of talent.
With her brother’s ability, wouldn’t it be a hundred times better if he arranged for her nephew to do some errands in the capital?
Fu Xianyun said, “I think this place is not bad and it’s close to Aunt, so I came over.”
Mdm Chu frowned. “Isn’t the capital closer to our Fu family? If there’s anything, at least your father will be there to support you. Your cousin doesn’t come back often, and your aunt is just a weak woman who can’t help you much. Why come to such a small place to suffer?”
The more she talked about this being a small place, the more unhappy Matriarch Chu.
“Our Huang Yang Town has countless merchants from all over the world. Although we can’t compare to the capital, we are still far above the mark compared to other places.”
Upon hearing the Matriarch speak, Mdm Chu’s expression changed slightly, but she did not dare say anything else.
Matriarch Chu glanced at her indifferently, her expression full of dissatisfaction.
Chu Sihan looked down and poured himself a cup of tea without saying anything.
If it wasn’t for Lu Sheng, he probably wouldn’t even bother coming back to Huang Yang Town.
When he was young, he watched his mother and grandmother fight with the Jiang family. After her younger brother passed away and the Jiang family went to prison, his grandmother stayed in the temple hall to pay her respects to Buddha all year round. Only then did the Chu Mansion become much quieter.
In the end, for some reason, his grandmother suddenly returned recently. On the surface, Mother appeared to be obedient to Grandmother, but in reality, the two of them had been fighting a lot in private.
He could probably understand why his father would rather travel around the world than return home.
“The dishes are here!”
He Lai walked over with two plates of food. One was honey roast duck, while the other was sweet and sour pork.
After he put down the dishes, he nodded slightly at Chu Sihan. “Please enjoy your meal. The remaining dishes will be served soon.”
“Sihan, try it quickly.” Fu Xianyun said, “Although Miss Lu’s restaurant isn’t big, the dishes here are all new and varied, and the taste isn’t inferior to your Tian Xiang Restaurant.”
Chu Sihan picked up his chopsticks and gave Fu Shuo a roasted duck leg.
“Thank you, Uncle!”
Fu Shuo smiled and thanked him.
After serving the dishes, He Lai served a plate of fries.
He smiled and said, “Ah Sheng made this for the child.”
Beside the plate was a dipping saucer filled with ketchup.
“What is this?”
Yu Linglong pointed to the ketchup.
He Lai said, “This is ketchup. Ah Sheng made it. Dip it with fries.”
“So this thing is called fries?”
Yu Linglong curiously picked up a stick, dipped it in ketchup, and put it into her mouth.
“Yes, it tastes pretty good.”
She took another stick and continued eating. After eating, she took another stick.
A few moments later, half the plate of fries was gone.
“Mother, Pretty Sister made this for me!”
Fu Shuo said anxiously.
If he didn’t say anything, his mother would have finished eating.
“Ah? Right, this is for you!”
Yu Linglong smiled and said, “This thing is really addictive.”
Fu Shuo finally tasted the fries and happily let Matriarch Chu have a taste.
Matriarch Chu took one and dipped it in the sauce before putting it into her mouth.
“Yes, crispy and fragrant. Not bad! I wonder what it’s made of?”
He Lai explained, “It’s made of potatoes.”
