Chapter 164: Meeting men from the Domineering Army
“If it was only because we competed over missions, then there would never be armies who were on good terms with each other in the entire military world.” Bai Yun Qi said, “We just do not approve of the way that they accomplish their missions. Moreover, they also love to depend on the fact that their strength is greater than others and steal the missions from a few smaller armies. This ticks a lot of people off.”
“The characters of the people from that army are really bad!” Fatty Qu said.
“It’s not only bad, but in any case, we fight every single time we encounter each other.” Bai Yun Qi said, “However, I heard that the men that they’ve sent on the mission this time are stronger than us. If we see them, we should avoid them a little. Otherwise, if they kill us, my father and the others would be unable to look for them and take revenge. As a result, if you encounter them, don’t’ say that you’re with us.”
“Mm, we understand.” Wei Zi Qi agreed.
After pitching tents, Sima You Yue and the others bantered a bit with the men from the army. Fatty Qu blurted out that he was hungry, earning him a bout of laughter from the men from the army.
Fatty Qu saw that Bai Yun Qi was laughing along with them and said, “Brother Bai, you’re laughing right now, so you better not eat later on!”
“Big Brother, what have I not eaten before that I would covet your food?” Bai Yun Qi laughed as he said.
“Heh heh, I’ll see whether or not you will still say the same thing later on.” Fatty Qu said. After he finished speaking, he turned to look at Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang.
Sima You Yue gave him a kick, “If you want to eat then cook it yourself. Don’t bother us.”
“This hand of mine only knows how to practice martial arts, how in the world would I know how to make good food! Bei Gong, what do you say?”
“I didn’t hear anything.” Bei Gong Tang said with a smile as she turned her face away.
“You Yue, you all haven’t made food for a month and it’s so rare for us to have this pocket of time. Can you make it please.” Fatty Qu pleaded, “ Look at how much weight I’ve lost recently, the fat on my belly has disappeared into nothing.”
“You only know how to eat!” Sima You Yue glared at Fatty Qu. Fine, his current self was not like a Fatty at all.
That’s what she said, but she still took out ingredients to prepare food.
There were many people around this night, so she decided to make a bit of barbecued pork so everyone could work on it together.
The Spirit Beast that there were eating were those that they had exterminated before. Furthermore, they were those that Little Spirit had helped them prepare by cutting into smaller pieces.
“Are you going to be making barbecued pork?” Bai Yun Qu asked when he saw the things that Sima You Yue had.
“That’s right. The barbecued pork that You Yue makes is the best.” Fatty Qu squatted beside Bai Yun Qi and looked at the plate full of raw meat as if he was looking at the world’s most delicious plate of food.
“Who has never eaten barbecued pork before? The taste would be about the same.” Bai Yun Qi said nonchalantly.
“Heh heh, you’ll know when the time comes.”
When Sima You Yue took out the prepared barbecued pork, Bai Yun Qi had believed what Fatty Qu said. He had never seen such beautiful barbecued pork before.
Everyone would usually just skewer it and put it on the fire to barbecue. Nobody had ever barbecued it like this before.
Bei Gong Tang had learnt a lot from Sima You Yue the past two years and so the food that she made was not bad either.
The aroma of the barbecued pork wafted out very quickly. When those army men smelled it, they all gathered together. After that, they completely forgot all the jokes that they made about Fatty Qu just now and naturally ate it all up.
The pork that Sima You Yue and the other two had barbecued was definitely not enough for them all, so they had to take out few more ovens and enlist everyone’s help in barbecuing.
All these ovens were made by Fatty Qu, who made them by following Sima You Yue’s instruction. At that time, everyone never expected that Fatty Qu would have been able to be a Weaponsmith, because his character was too far off from a weaponsmith.
However, they never expected that he would have the gifting for weapon crafting. He was normally so loud and boisterous, but the moment he began to craft weapons, it was if he had switched out his soul. He became steady and attentive, and was really able to become a weaponsmith.
Although he was not able to refine high level spirit tools, he could still make one that could barbecue meat.
At the beginning, Bai Yun Qi was still laughing at Fatty Qu, but the moment he ate the meat that Sima You Yue had barbecued, he completely stopped. Seeing that so many people had come to eat, to the point that they had all shoved them all to the side, they had to take the meat that Sima You Yue had prepared and do it themselves.
Those few people could only helplessly do it themselves.
Sima You Yue and the others began by teaching them, then no longer cared about them once they started doing it. She, along with Bei Gong Tang, made a few more and went to the side to eat it.
Bai Yun Qi came over and stole two more skewers before sauntering over to the back to lie on the ground, patting his stomach, saying, “Whoa, it’s been so long since I’ve eaten such good food.”
Fatty Qu sat beside him, saying, “How is it, not bad right?”
“Really not bad!” Bai Yun Qi said, “This is the first time in my entire life that I’ve eaten such a good barbecued pork.”
After eating their fill, the men from the army returned back to rest. Because there was limited space around, a few men had to share one tent.
Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang kept everything away and went to rest as well.
It could be because of the roasted meat, but everyone was a lot closer. On the second day, everyone looked so bright and cheery, as if they were thinking about when the next time would be that they would be able to get her to cook again.
Early in the morning, Li Kui brought a team out to look for where the purple foxes were. He left a few men behind to take care of camp. Bai Yun Qi brough Sima You Yue and the others to a place nearby to walk around while explaining about the West Moon Kingdom.
Sima You Yue and the others were listening intently, so they had unknowingly wandered farther and farther away from camp.
Bai Yun Qi suddenly shouted loudly and dashed after it. He even called out his red three eyed pig and said, “Red red, if you lose its trace again I will turn you into barbecued pork!”
Everyone noticed a purple figure flash in front of their eyes before Bai Yun Qi immediately chased after it. The five of them were helpless and could only follow after him together.
“Little fox, don’t run, okay. I won’t ask for your life, I just want a bit of your blood. Don’t run, please!” Bai Yun Qi called out as he ran.
The few following after him almost fainted.
He was calling out and asking for its blood, it would be weird if he didn’t run!
The six people and beast got farther away the more they chased it. The campsite had long disappeared from sight.
There suddenly came a loud cry from the front that sounded like it came from the fox. It appeared to be injured.
Sima You Yue and the others rushed over, but heard a bout of laughter even before they came close.
“Ha ha, never thought that a purple fox would actually send itself to my door!”
“Team Leader, this purple fox really fell from the sky! Being able to catch this purple fox means that our mission has been accomplished!”
“Ha ha, really not bad!”
“Team Leader, are we going back now?”
“Go back? No, let’s wait awhile. We’ll wait to settle the people that come before deciding further.”
Sima You Yue and the others turned around and saw a few men waiting in front. In one hand, they held the purple fox, and their faces all smirked as they looked at them.
“Qin Wu!” Bai Yun Qi’s expression turned extremely ugly when he saw the person in the centre.
“Who are they?” Fatty Qu asked in a whisper.
“Qin Wu, from the Domineering Army. An expert from the military.” Bai Yun Qi said solemnly.
