The Seventh Princess was surprised, her mouth slightly agape. Xu Que, who had been scolding people since the moment he had first opened his mouth, had now unexpectedly made a comment praising her for her beautiful voice!
Buttface was not satisfied and howled at Xu Que, “this deity’s voice is also silvery and crisp, yet you chase me around and want to kill me! This is gender discrimination!”
“Bullsh*t, you sound like a duck! And you’ve got cheek to claim that your voice is silvery and crisp! For goodness’ sake, your voice is like the sound of barbell dropping onto the ground!”
Xu Que glared at Buttface.
“Owww, shameless!” Buttface immediately howled in frustration.
Xu Que couldn’t be bothered with him. He looked at the Seventh Princess and instantly become gentlemanly. With a light smile, he said, “my beautiful princess, how about I treat you to some spicy hot pot? The type that costs six dollars!”
“Oh? Spicy hot pot… what is that?” The Seventh Princess was puzzled.
“It’s a magical dish. After eating it, you will be wanting to come back for more at least thirteen times in one night!” Xu Que said with a graceful bearing.
The Seventh Princess was bewildered. She could not understand at all!
Buttface sprang out again when he heard the phrase ‘spicy hot pot’. He felt that it must be the most delicious dish in the whole world. He immediately shouted, “spicy hot pot! Boy, this deity wants to eat spicy hot pot!”
“This is none of your business, so go away! Can’t you see that this Act Tough King is talking to a girl?”
Xu Que’s expression was full of displeasure. Are you kidding me? he thought. This Act Tough King isn’t going to ask a dog out. Why would I treat you to spicy hot pot?
The Seventh Princess chuckled and her eyes flashed slightly. She felt that the young man and the dog were rather interesting.
However, she wanted to know more information in order to determine the background of Xu Que, so she did not leave the place. “Young Master Xu Que has superb culinary skills!” the princess said with a smiled. “Does Young Master Xu Que have some spare time to go to a teahouse to talk for a while?”
“Oh? Young lady, you’re actually a straightforward and emotionally honest person. But unfortunately, I’m a gentleman and I don’t like to rush. I hope that you won’t be too anxious! Love is something that needs to be nurtured. As the saying goes, reluctance will never produce the desired results… however, since you have invited me, it will be disrespectful to decline. I just need to finish selling the stinky tofu first. It’s a small business and integrity is very important!”
Xu Que made a gesture of respect by cupping one hand in the other before his chest.
His choice of words may have appeared elegant on the surface, but they somehow didn’t feel right!
What ‘gentleman’? ‘Don’t like to rush’? And ‘won’t be too anxious’?!
And ‘disrespectful to decline’? All these over-the-top, flirtatious phrases… could there be a more shameless man in this world?
The crowd was appalled and shocked after thinking through what Xu Que had said!
This… this boy is too shameless. He is daring to flirt with the Seventh Princess!
This is totally outrageous!
These kinds of words are usually heard in the brothels. How dare he utter such words in such a situation?
Who do you take the Seventh Princess for?
The Seventh Princess was taken aback. She had been totally caught off guard as Xu Que was not behaving the way a gentleman should by saying such indecent things!
Several princes were furious upon hearing his words. They couldn’t control their anger and shouted fiercely, “atrocious!”
“You’re too daring, how dare you make such impertinent remarks to my sister!”
“Hurry up and kneel down to ask for forgiveness!”
The Second Prince also stood up for his sister and commanded in an icy tone, “men! Arrest this pompous scoundrel!”
The guards immediately swarmed towards Xu Que!
“Good job! Hurry up and take this away boy!” Buttface commented happily as he nearly jumped for joy!
“Wait a moment!”
Xu Que raised one arm and said seriously, “are you trying to create trouble? And you, Second Fatty, how many times have you yelled at your guards to arrest me? You can’t afford to lose, right? Or are you actually jealous because I’m too good-looking and too cool?”
The Second Prince’s mouth twitched. “You humiliated my sister. This is an offence punishable by death!”
“Damn, don’t accuse me of ridiculous things. When did I humiliate your sister?”
Xu Que was immediately unhappy. He turned to the Seventh Princess and put on a charming smile. “My beautiful princess, may I ask you if I humiliated you earlier? Ah, don’t rush to talk. Look, you must be hungry, come, eat something first!”
As he spoke, Xu Que prepared a bowl of stinky tofu and turned to the Seventh Princess.
At that moment, nobody noticed that Buttface had sneakily gone up to the oil pot, pulled out a bag and poured its contents into the oil pot.
As one looked carefully, the contents were similar in shape to sausages, but they were dark-colored and floated in the pot. And they really did look like sh*t!
Fortunately, the bowl of stinky tofu that Xu Que was now holding had not been contaminated. He picked up a piece of tofu with chopsticks and offered it to the Seventh Princess.
Perhaps because he was really good-looking, or perhaps because of the added charisma points, but he appeared extra charming in that moment.
The Seventh Princess exhibited no signs of anger. Not only that, but when she looked at Xu Que’s gentle and charming smile, her heartbeat accelerated slightly, and she felt somewhat nervous!
“Come, be good, open your mouth first. Yes, that’s right. Then gently put it in!”
As she was in a daze, she opened her small mouth and listened to Xu Que.
She could not understand why, but at that moment, she sensed so much sincerity from Xu Que that she was unable to reject him. What was the reason for this?
The Seventh Princess herself had met many of the five nations’ talents. Even in the Imperial City of Metal Nation, there was a man who was reputed to be the most beautiful man of the five nations.
However, even in the face of that famous, beautiful and charming man, the Seventh Princess had never felt as mesmerized as she felt now. Facing Xu Que, who was such a shameless person, why was she unable to keep her heart from fluttering?
Xu Que had held the smelly sh*t to her face, yet she had obediently opened up her mouth…
When the slightly smooth and rather hot stinky tofu touched her lips, the Seventh Princess felt that she must have gone crazy or been possessed by an evil spirit.
But in the next moment when she bit down on the tofu, the fresh and tender juices filled her mouth—and she was dumbfounded.
Why did this foul-smelling thing have such a unique taste?
It smells good, too delicious!
Wait… what is this?
No, since when was this tofu so fragrant and flavorful?
The taste and flavor, it’s simply amazing! To think that such a delicious thing actually exists in the world!
Suddenly, the Seventh Princess’s shivered. Her Soul Strength had increased slightly.
Although the difference was only small, she could clearly feel the change in her Soul Strength. She stared at Xu Que with big eyes, wearing a look of amazement.
Xu Que laughed cheekily. “How is it? It’s delicious, right?”
“Mm!” The Seventh Princess nodded.
Xu Que continued to laugh. “Your Soul Strength has improved quite a bit, right?”
“Do you want some more?”
“Thank you. 10,000 taels a bowl, fixed price!”
