Chapter 28: Encounter with Someone of the Same Path
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Qing Yin?” Only after spitting for quite a while did the strange taste in her mouth disappear a little. Seeing that Qing Yin was still dazing out, Tang Doudou went over and patted her shoulder.

“What are you dazing out for ah! Let’s go, tell me where you guys’ kitchen is? This Mi…… Mister will make something tasty for you!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Kitchen?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Yeah! You better not say that in this huge garden of yours you don’t even have a kitchen!” Tang Doudou pulled the outer robe from the tree and put it on in a leisurely and easy-going manner. Taking advantage of the opportunity, she pulled Qing Yin’s little hand and headed towards the outer courtyard.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Qing Yin was already a little displeased with him, yet she couldn’t ward off his cordialness. Thinking again, the person was a guest. Satisfying the guests’ requests was her duty from the start. Right now, Tang Doudou wanted the kitchen, so she could only lead her there.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Actually, Qing Yin was also curious as to what kind of tasty things she would be able to make.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“There is a kitchen, but it hasn’t been used in a long time.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou was surprised: “Your Master doesn’t eat?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Qing Yin replied: “Everything Master eats are prepared by Meng Yu jiejie* in the small kitchen.”

姐姐 – “jiejie” Older sister, can be used to address people not blood related

“Small kitchen? This Baili Yu sure is something! To actually use special treatment! Then don’t you guys eat?” She remembered that in the past apparently masters and servants could not eat together!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Qing Yin smiled: “We as servants naturally eat Master’s leftovers.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Pei! Baili Yu has that much money yet he’s still this miserly! Such exploitism!” Tang Doudou angrily said. From the corners of her eyes she saw Qing Yin’s small pointed chin underneath her veil and couldn’t help but feel heartache: “Look at your pitiful little face, your chin is already starved to the shape of a cone. Looking at this makes my heart ache.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
She reached out and was just about to stroke Qing Yin’s face.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeing this scene in front of her eyes, Qing Yin recalled the event in which Tang Doudou wanted to sleep together with her and Qing Yin’s face immediately paled. An audacious thought appeared in her head, this Li Xueyi couldn’t have taken a fancy to her, right?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
She immediately flung away Tang Doudou’s hand and said, helplessly panicking: “I’ll bring gongzi to the kitchen area first! If it truly cannot be used then this servant will try to think of some other idea!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
After she finished saying so, she ran as if escaping. In a blink her figure was gone.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou bit her tongue. Didn’t she agree to bring her to the kitchen? Running that fast, how is she supposed to follow?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Forget it, do it yourself and you’ll have ample food and clothing!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Let’s search!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Not to mention, Qing Yin in her panic ran very far and only recalled now that she had even forgotten Tang Doudou.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
When she turned back to look, the original place was absolutely empty and she didn’t know where the person ran off to.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Forget it, just let him explore for a while. The garden is so big after all, once he’s tired he’ll come back.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Just as she was going to walk forward, Qing Yin suddenly stomped her feet. Oh no!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Master said he would be coming over today. If Li Xueyi charged to where Master was, wouldn’t that be bad?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Thinking of this, her little face paled again and she hurriedly rushed off to find Tang Doudou.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
On another note, Tang Doudou currently felt like her head was about to explode. For this ancient courtyard to be built so large was already enough, yet the scenery was all nearly the same. Just walking around a few times was enough to make a person dizzy.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seriously this Baili Yu! If the garden is going to be so big find more servants ah!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
After walking half the day she still couldn’t even see a ghost of a figure.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Ah…… Someone hurry up and show up. Beanbeans is about to starve to death!” Tang Doudou was hungry to the point stars were swirling in front of her eyes and her legs were going soft.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Sprawled out on her back, she collapsed on the large road. Tang Doudou shouted out two times, then she didn’t even have the energy to groan.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
That damned Baili Yu. Bring her here was probably just for the sake of starving her to death.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jesus!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
As a foodie, to be starved to death is seriously too cruel!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Just as she was mourning for her stomach, she suddenly heard the sound of guqin coming from far away. Tang Doudou froze for a moment, then hurriedly got up from the ground and started walking in the direction of the sound.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
After walking for a short while, she saw a courtyard appear in front of her.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Eh, she’s finally walked to a different-looking courtyard. Tang Doudou raised her eyes and looked at the courtyard signboard. Inscribed on it were three words.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
It was helpless. She couldn’t even recognize a single one and could only faintly make out that the one in the middle was a ‘snow’ character.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
That guqin sound was coming precisely from this courtyard.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
If there’s the sound of a guqin, then there definitely is a person. There’s no way a ghost would be playing guqin in broad daylight, right?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Thinking to the point that there’s someone here, Tang Doudou was unable to hold on and energetically ran inside. In the end, she still didn’t see even half a person.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Under the scorching sun, there was suddenly a burst of chill. It couldn’t be, that it’s really a ghost?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Eeek, scary!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Turning back, just as she was about to run back out, the savory scent of meat suddenly drifted through the air……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Her nose twitched. Quite certain that this was the scent of meat, Tang Doudou’s eyes immediately emitted light, wah! It’s really the smell of meat! Pure and unadulterated deer meat…… That’s the savory fragrance only described in the legends, so touched……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou swallowed her saliva. Damn, she can’t go on, she must go eat the meat!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Hello? Anyone here?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“If there’s no one can I’m going in~”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Sneakily searching by following the scent of that meat, her voice was quiet to the point that only she herself could hear it.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Fortunately, this courtyard was much smaller than the large garden outside. Very soon, she found the house that was emitting that savory deer meat fragrance. This building looks like a kitchen ah!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Could this be the kitchen Qing Yin talked about? Didn’t she say that no one uses it?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou pushed the door open a crack and peeked in with suspicion. Her face lit up with delight, as expected it was a kitchen!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Looking again, no one’s here!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Then what are you still waiting for! Tang Doudou smoothly slipped into the kitchen and closed the door.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Wah! Wah! Wah……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
It’s excellent! It’s neat and tidy, everything that should be here is here. A little pot of deer meat was set on top of a high quality charcoal fire and carefully simmering. Lifting the lid, a ‘gulugulu’ still bubbling rich fragrance wafted upT/C. Tang Doudou took a deep inhale. This is the taste! Refreshing!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Even though the heat control was still not quite there and it would be even more fragrant after a while longer, Tang Doudou was already uncontrollable hungry, so where would she have the mind to care about that much? Let’s eat first and think again later!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Haahoohaahoo*, the fresh and tender deer meat slipped into Tang Doudou’s stomach one by one. One bowl after another, she drank down the thick soup. Not long after, the meat in the pot was gone and the pot bottom could be seen, yet Tang Doudou still desired to continue.

Sound of inhaling and blowing out with your nose and your mouth.

After eating, her brain also started working better. She held her chopsticks between her teeth and they lifted and lifted as she thought. She ate all of the meat……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
But what’s she gonna do ‘bout this pot?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
She was unbelievably distressed, but there was another person in this kitchen that was even more distressed.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
It was rare for him to be able to eat something on the sly, yet he accidently ran into someone. What was even worse was, the person even ate all of his favorite deer meat!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Krrr-rack! With a single bite he snapped the chopsticks in his hand! If it weren’t for the fact he was scared of getting caught by Meng Ru, there was no way he would have jumped to hide on the beams of the room the moment he heard footsteps.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
In the spacious kitchen, this sound was particularly conspicuous.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou froze. Pulling out her chopsticks, she looked at it. She didn’t bite the chopsticks ah? Then that noise earlier?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Suddenly lifting her head, the two both froze.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Then simultaneously gave blood-curdling, pig-being-slaughtered type screeches.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The first to recover was the person on the roofbeam. He moved quickly and dropped down. With one hand he covered Tang Doudou’s mouth while a shining dagger appeared in his other hand. He fiercely warned: “Shut up. If you keep screaming and cause Meng Ru to come over, I’ll kill you.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou slapped away his hand and slightly narrowed her eyes: “You’re freaking here to steal food too?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
At first she was startled too, thinking she was about to be caught. But hearing the two words ‘Meng Ru’, she instantly understood what was happening.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Immediately, she also felt dismay. Never expected that coming here to steal a snack, she’d actually end up meeting someone of the same (cultivation) path!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Hell no, you’re the one stealing food!” Who knew that the moment the other party heard that, he immediately glared at her.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Pei, if you’re not here to steal food, what are you hiding on the roof for?” Tang Doudou rolled her eyes* at him, still reflecting on the savory taste of the deer meat. Ancient era is great ah. No matter what it was, it’s all natural; it’s tasty and nutritious.

Chinese eyeroll is just rolling your eyes back and showing them the whites of your eyes. Like holding up a middle finger, but not that offensive. It literally translates to “white eye” and is usually used to express disgust.

“It’s pleasantly cool up there!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Oh?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Up to you whether you believe or not!” Tsunderely tilting his neck, he saw the absolutely empty pot and his large almond eyes showed devastating disappointment: “Just now wasn’t there still some pieces, why are they gone?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Turning his gaze, he saw Tang Doudou smacking her lips: “You!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Oh, sss, already ate, ate it all……” So so tasty, so so refreshing!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“That’s too much! Not even leaving behind one piece, are you still human!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Looking at the cute, dazed tsundere young man exposing an expression of inconsolable grief and indignation, Tang Doudou swallowed down the meat still in her mouth and licked her lips as she said: “Stop that your-kid-died look. Isn’t it just a pot of deer meat? Jie(Big Sis) will make you something even tastier!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jie(Big Sis)?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Hic, you misheard! What jie no jie, I was just burping. That’s right, what’s your name. I didn’t know that within Baili Yu’s servant girls there’s even a guy?” Crap, she better get used to this identity change fast! Luckily she was able to quickly divert the topic, Tang Doudou sighed in relief.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“I also haven’t seen you before. Where did you crawl out from?” The beautiful young man moved the dagger away: “You say there’s something even tastier than deer meat, is that true?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
So it turns out he’s also a foodie ah!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou smiled with her eyes squinted: “Isn’t your knowledge and experience too short? There’s plenty of things tastier than deer meat. Go help me watch the door.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Watch the door for what?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Of course so I can make something tasty for you!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Jun Xin*!”

Jun(monarch/gentleman) Xin(heart)

“Who cares what heart you have, hurry up and go watch the door!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jun Xin curiously asked: “You’re going to make it yourself?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“What, then you want to make it?” Tang Doudou rolled her eyes at Jun Xin then pulled him up and started pushing him outside.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jun Xin hurriedly turned around and tugged at her: “Hey, I can’t stay outside, I’ll be discovered. It’s best if I just stay inside the building! Don’t worry, I’ll immediately know if there’s even the slightest movement outside!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou suspiciously peered at him: “You’re that amazing?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Wasting words!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jun Xin impatiently urged: “If you’re gonna make it then hurry up. If it’s not tasty then I will get angry!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Butt-aged little brat!

”Butt-aged” refers to when children still goes around naked, aka with butts exposed

Preparing the kitchen. She ate and drank her fill, so it’s about time to do some proper business.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Keep watch properly!” After exhorting Jun Xin once, Tang Doudou took off her outer robe and immediately got busy.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Originally, he was worried she was just joking, but unexpectedly, upon seeing her swift movements, Jun Xin couldn’t help but start to look forward to it. What will she make that’s even tastier than deer meat?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
In any case, he feels like deer meat is the tastiest thing in the world.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou first thoroughly searched through the kitchen to find everything she needed. After setting everything up, only then did she realize she was still missing quite a few seasonings.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Looks like, whether it was the snack in Rutaceae Pavilion or the breakfast Qing Yin brought her, it’s not without reason that they tasted that horrible.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Fortunately, for what she’s making today, missing those seasonings was not that significant.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The important thing is this plaything!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Picking up that small jar, Tang Doudou took a deep inhale. It was still the familiar recipe, still the familiar taste.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
One word, refreshing!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Jun Xin squatted down behind the door. Who in the world is this person? Why would they appear in Moon View Courtyard? And it’s even a man.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Baili Yu……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
That’s right, last night didn’t Baili Yu go to that boring martial arts convention or something? He even brought back that new Alliance Head Li Xueyi.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Thinking to here, Jun Xin’s expression suddenly turned odd. This guy in front of him who has his sleeved pulled up and was currently familiarly and swiftly kneading dough, this guy couldn’t be Li Xueyi, right!?

[Chiyomira’s Corner]
Translator Comment Chiyomira: In bio they taught us to always waft the chemicals towards our noses rather than sniff directly. Of course I never did that because we were just smelling vinegar and stuff. Then my mom made my favorite soup. I took a sniff and tears filled my eyes. I had to put burn ointment on my poor nose.

Hehe, mini vote! Comment here. Out of all the guys introduced, who do you think is the guy in the Chinese teaser or the main male lead? Main options are Mu Ye, Bai Feiyun, Baili Yu and Jun Xin. You may nominate others as well~ btw, I have a guess but I don’t know the answer yet either~
Do give a line as to why you voted the way you did and I’ll dedicate a bonus chapter for the person with the most interesting reason~
If there’s nothing interesting… I may or may not give a pity chapter…
