Chapter 210 Strange Question 2
Gu Qinghuan was able to suddenly appear in front of Hong Yaxuan because he was wearing the Suit of Blending In. Jiang Beiran thought that the design of the Suit of Blending In was too simple, so he had made many designs. After all, the core of the Suit of Blending In was formations, not its appearance.
After Hong Yaxuan calmed down a little, Gu Qinghuan asked, “Miss Hong, do you usually spend extravagantly on your daily expenses?”
Hong Yaxuan didn’t understand why Boss Song would ask such a question all of a sudden, but she still answered seriously, “No… my father always taught us not to spend money recklessly, and he is also a thrifty person.”
“What about your daily meals? Did you waste them recklessly?”
Hong Yaxuan frowned and thought for a moment, “I didn’t pay attention to that.” Then she suddenly thought of something and raised her finger, “Cuirong must know. I’ll call her over.”
Soon, Hong Yaxuan pulled Qin Cuirong over
“Hello, Mr. Song,” Qin Cuirong greeted Gu Qinghuan politely when she saw him.
Gu Qinghuan returned the greeting and said, “Thank you for your help.”
On the way, Qin Cuirong had already heard from her mistress what she was here for, so she answered after thinking for a moment.
“I sometimes go with Gui Xiang… Oh, Gui Xiang is the servant girl who is responsible for buying vegetables in the manor. When I went to buy vegetables with her, she told me that the rule in the manor is to eat the freshest vegetables. Master does not allow us to waste food, so we usually buy the right amount.”
Gu Qinghuan nodded slightly after hearing that, and said, “Thank you.”
Seeing that Boss Song didn’t take the initiative to explain, Hong Yaxuan couldn’t help but ask curiously, “I wonder why Boss Song wants to ask about this?”
Gu Qinghuan pursed his lips into a smile, and answered, “When you were having lunch today, I went to the east kitchen to take a look. I found that there were a lot of leftovers left in the kitchen, which was quite a waste.”
“Eh?” Hong Yaxuan felt a little strange after hearing that.
Without waiting for Hong Yaxuan to ask further, Gu Qinghuan looked at Qin Cuirong and said, “Miss Cuirong, is it? I have another thing to trouble you with.”
“Please go ahead.” Qin Cuirong immediately bent down and bowed.
“Do you usually go to the kitchen to help?” “Yes, occasionally.” Qin Cuirong nodded.
“In that case, you just need to be act natural and ask something for me…”
At the evening, Gui Xiang was carrying the basket back to the east kitchen. She then shouted, “General, there’s chrysanthemum at the entrance of the market today. I bought some more. Please make a salad for me.”
Le Dong, who was picking vegetables, immediately stood up and replied, “This is a rare item. I haven’t seen you buy it for a long time. Why do you suddenly have it today?” Because there was no refrigerator, wild vegetables like chrysanthemum were usually only available in a month period. Usually, only rich families were able to afford fresh vegetables.
Gui Xiang put down the basket and said, “Uncle Jia went into the mountains to dig it up. He dug quite a lot.”
“Oh, he went into the mountain? He’s quite bold. There are quite a lot of wild beasts in the mountains recently. I heard there’s even mystic beasts.”
“Yeah, but thanks to his boldness, we have a feast.”
As the two of them were talking, Qin Cuirong jumped and ran over. When she saw the chrysanthemum in the basket, she immediately shouted, “Ah! There are wild vegetables to eat today.”
Gui Xiang smiled and said, “You have a good nose. You only here because of delicious food.”
“How could I? I just miss you.”
“Then you should come early and go shopping with me.”
“Okay, I will come early tomorrow.”
After exchanging pleasantries, Qin Cuirong looked at Le Dong and said, “General, please let me help you cook today.”
The Hong family was very generous to their servants. They could also share a bite of the dishes that the host ate, especially the ones in the east kitchen.
Therefore, Le Dong could tell that Qin Cuirong was coveting this chrysanthemum.
“Okay, okay, okay. Then you have to work harder.” Le Dong said with a smile.
“Leave it to me!”

After an hour, the east kitchen was already at the end of its work. Qin Cuirong looked at the steamer in Le Dong’s hand and asked, “General, why are you making so many steamed buns today? It’s much more than when I came last time. Oh, I know, is it…”
“Stop talking nonsense!” Le Dong immediately put on a serious face. “This is what Eldest Young Master told me to do. He asked me to steam more buns in the next few days.”
“Oh -” Qin Cuirong nodded in understanding.
“You little girl, what kind of person do you think I am? Really…”.
“Hehe, I was going to ask you did Old Master like your buns and ask you to make more. What are you thinking?”
“You smart mouth, move aside. Or I’ll bump into you.”
Then, those who continued to help in the east kitchen also asked for more pickled vegetables, which were also ordered by Eldest Young Master.
At the same time, Qin Cuirong, who had received this information, carefully went to the door of the back garden and found her young mistress. “Did you get everything?” Hong Yaxuan asked.
“Yes! I got all the information.” Qin Cuirong nodded her head vigorously.
“Okay, let’s go in.”
When they came to the rockery, they saw Boss Song walking out from behind the rockery before they could look around.
Gu Qinghuan cupped his hands toward them and said to Qin Cuirong, “Thank you for your hard work, young mistress.”
“No, it’s not hard at all.” Qin Cuirong waved her hands repeatedly, then she immediately replied, “Sir, I’ve inquired about everything you wanted me to know. The east kitchen has indeed made some extra food these past few days. They said that it was ordered by Eldest Young Master.”
After hearing Qin Cuirong’s reply, Hong Yaxuan couldn’t help but be surprised.
Putting aside whether the information was useful or not, Boss Song had only been here for half a day and already found something unusual. However, she had never thought of it in this direction.
“Sigh… that man is going to say that I’m stupid again. No, no! I’m not stupid. I’m very smart, Humph!” Hong Yaxuan comforted herself in her heart, but she couldn’t hold back her curiosity. She asked again, “I wonder how this small matter will help you, sir?”
“I won’t trouble you with the rest of the matter, Miss Hong. When we have the result, my brother will inform you at the pavilion tomorrow. I’ll take my leave first. Goodbye.”
Gu Qinghuan put on the silk scarf and walked back to the rockery. When Hong Yaxuan and Qin Cuirong followed him, they found that Gu Qinghuan was gone.
In the night, Qin Cuirong felt chilly. She grabbed Miss Hong’s arm and said in a trembling voice, “This Mr. Song is really a strange person.” “Yes.” Hong Yaxuan nodded.
However, Hong Yaxuan was even more curious at this moment. Who exactly was that person who could control two extraordinary persons at the same time?
That night, Hong Yaxuan couldn’t fall asleep.
She tossed and turned, unable to figure out what Boss Song had discovered and what this discovery would bring to their Hong family.
“I didn’t cause a big trouble, right?”
Hong Yaxuan suddenly felt a little flustered, but she only panicked for a moment because her intuition told her that that person wouldn’t harm her.
“But what exactly is it…”
Just like that, Hong Yaxuan tossed and turned until dawn. However, she was still a cultivator after all, so it was not a big deal for her not to sleep for a night. She endured until nightfall. Finally, Hong Yaxuan, waited patiently until the agreed time. She could not wait to go to the pavilion.
After adjusting her breathing, Hong Yaxuan slowly walked into the pavilion and found that Lin Yu and the other two were all in there.
Just as Hong Yaxuan was about to clasp her hands, she saw Jiang Beiran make a shooing gesture at her and said, “You don’t have to report today. Go home and wait for the news. I will inform you when we find out the truth.”
Hong Yaxuan was stunned, but she couldn’t help but ask, “I want to ask yesterday…”
“You can go back now. I don’t want to say it
Looking at Jiang Beiran’s fierce gaze, Hong Yaxuan couldn’t help but shrink her neck and lower her head. “Yes…”
Walking to a small forest far away from the pavilion, Hong Yaxuan couldn’t help but stomp her feet fiercely.
“Prick! He scolded me again! He scolded me again!”
Hong Yaxuan, who couldn’t help but moan for a while, felt a little wronged in her heart, but she felt that that person seemed to have really investigated the matter thoroughly. Otherwise, how could he not need the help of an internal member of her family.
“Forget it. Since he’s so dedicated, I’ll forgive him again.”
