Chapter 328: You Want To Test Me?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The people at the scene were scared silly by Xu Que’s words!
What do you mean by ‘if you can’t afford the expensive one, we can do the cheap one’?
And ‘if we can’t do the human one, we can change to a beast’s one’?
Damn, why are such things coming out of this kid’s mouth so easily? He actually suggested the eunuch get a transplant from the organs of a donkey or dog, won’t that then make the eunuch a beast man?
This is too disgusting and too weird!
Many people took their hats off to Xu Que for his creativity!
However, despite the situation, the Second Prince was still smiling. With a gentle wave of his hand; he motioned to the old eunuch not to act rashly.
He looked at Xu Que and shook his head. “All you know is how to grill some chicken wings, yet you remain so arrogant about it. This is called conceit! Not only that, but you deliberately raised the prices extremely high to create sensationalism. In turn, the commoners are unable to buy them. This is called injustice! People like you are not welcome to stay in the Imperial City!”
Woah? You’re using morals and ethics to deal with me?
Xu Que sneered at the slightly plump Second Prince and said, “isn’t this just sour grapes? Didn’t you just come over here happily to buy chicken wings? Now you’re angry because you don’t get to eat it, right? Aiya, come, come, come, I’ll give you some!”
As Xu Que said so, he threw over the chicken bones that he was holding.
He then threw over another bone, speaking with a cheerful voice. “This one has more meat than the other. Is it enough, you mongrel? If not… I’ll get you more? Look at you, you have a little brother but you’re looking a little more like the guy beside you, tsk, tsk, tsk…”
The crowd inhaled a mouthful of cold air!
This was a way of suggesting that the Second Prince was a dog as well as a eunuch. Too daring!
Moreover, even though he wasn’t using any curse words and was only speaking with a rude tone, it made people feel like vomiting blood until they died.
Although the Second Prince was not someone who could be angered easily, he couldn’t help being angry this time. The flames of fury in his eyes burned wildly. Nevertheless, he didn’t want to show his anger before his people.
He took a deep breath to control his anger. With a sneer, he said, “this prince just wants to help the mother and son, so it’s not all about your chicken wings. The food made from this kind of raw material won’t taste nice anyway. Any royal chef from the palace would be able to make a dish better than yours. What makes you so conceited?”
Xu Que puffed a sigh and looked up at a 45 degree angle to the night sky. His facial expression was that of an unparalleled master who was isolated due to his sheer skill. “The world laughs at my madness, I laugh at them for not being able to know why! Do I really have to expose my true identity? Yes, actually, I’m the… God of Cookery!”
God of Cookery?
The crowd suddenly froze!
But why had they never heard of this title before?
The Second Prince was slightly startled as well. He looked at Xu Que questioningly before an idea came to mind. “God of Cookery, right?” said the prince with a cold smile. “Then this prince wants to test you. If you’re able to complete my request, this prince will promise you one thing. If you fail, you’ll kneel down and kowtow to this prince to apologise. You’ll also roast chicken wings for the commoners for free for the next three years, how’s that?”
“Oh? You’ll promise me one thing? Are you sure?”
Xu Que’s lips curled upwards. You’re asking for trouble!
You dare to test me? There’s nothing in the world that can make this Act Tough King back off!
Don’t you fucking know that I have a System!
Oh yes! You really don’t know!
Okay then, this Act Tough King will act tough properly this time so you’ll know why things are the way they are.
One has to be fast in acting tough and one’s posture must be suave.
If the opportunity for acting tough comes knocking, one need to be serious about acting tough and deliver a slap to the face of the challenger. Don’t hesitate, act tough valiantly… no need for explanations!
“The words spoken by me, the prince, cannot be taken back. Everyone here can be the witnesses! But… don’t be happy just yet, when you’re really able to solve the problem, then you’ll be able to talk about the condition!” The Second Prince laughed teasingly, as if victory was within his grasp!
“Fine, what is your request!”
Xu Que was excited. This was a great opportunity to act tough!
On the other hand, the Third Prince and his group were furrowing their brows and seemed grim.
“Looks like this young man is going to lose face!” a prince whispered.
“Second Brother’s always been sly and scheming. Since he is the one who dared to set up this wager, he must be very confident!” Another prince nodded his head slightly.
They knew their Second Brother very well. He possessed wisdom and had means, which was rather fearsome.
“This boy is so impulsive that he has fallen into Second Brother’s trap,” the Third Prince said, shaking his head. “Even if this person is really strong, he won’t be of great use!”
Only the Seventh Princess remained silent. She glanced at Xu Que and seemed to be thinking about something!
On Xu Que’s face, she saw great confidence.
At this time, the Second Prince stepped out. His face had regained his usual smile. He looked at Xu Que as if he was really confident and said in a joking manner, “since you self-proclaim to be the God of Cookery, you must be good at cooking. So this prince will test your culinary skills!”
“Oh, continue, I’m all ears!”
Xu Que was calm and relaxed. Test my culinary skills?
Is this a joke? This Act Tough King is the top student at New East Cuisine!
What kind of cuisine has not been seen in my great country?
Do you think I’m afraid of you, little boy?
If the topic is food, no matter what kind of tricks you play, you’re not going to escape the clutches of the Act Tough King!
“Haha, then listen well,” said the Second Prince loudly. “This prince will give you a time limit. By the time a stick of incense burns down, you must make a foul-smelling but tasty dish. Can you do it?” The Second Prince’s expression became even more mocking!
Everyone was shocked by that!
Foul-smelling and tasty?
How is that possible?
Isn’t that a complete contradiction?
How can smelly food be tasty?
Making two conflicting flavors blend into a dish… isn’t this just the prince trying to make things difficult for the young man?
Everyone’s expressions were bitter and sympathetic towards Xu Que after they heard the Second Prince’s request.
As for the Third Prince and his siblings, they were not surprised. They already knew that the request by the Second Prince would no doubt be a trap. The request was so tricky… perhaps no one would be able to complete it.
“Sure enough, the boy is defeated directly!”
“Second brother’s request is really unassailable. That’s our second brother!”
The Third Prince and his group were shaking their heads, sighing. The Second Prince had always been their formidable enemy, and with this incident, they would have to focus more energy and attention on him.
The Seventh Princess gave a slight frown, shaking her head slightly and sighing.
She had confidence in Xu Que. But when she heard the request, she was disappointed as she felt that Xu Que would be unable to win!
This was because there was no solution to this request!
The woman at the stall had a face full of anxiety. She looked towards Xu Que worriedly.
Buttface was gloating at the plight of Xu Que. He held his belly and cackled loudly. “Hahaha, boy, you’re going to lose face this time! You deserve it! Hahaha!”
“Shut your dog mouth!”
Xu Que smacked Buttface’s mouth and held his jaws shut, not letting him speak another word.
Immediately, he glanced towards the Second Prince and a sneer formed on his face.
“A foul-smelling and tasty dish? Heh, I really admire your IQ! Come, come, come, Uncle Pixy’s lesson is starting now. Today I’m going to show all of you what is both smelly and delicious!”
With a wave of his hand, he called out the system interface and shouted in his head, Come out, my stinky tofu!
