Chapter 1217: An’an’s Screwed Over Again
The other two leopard cubs stared at Third intently. Since he didn’t say anything, they couldn’t tell if the food tasted good or not.
“Roar?” Eldest asked.
Third didn’t respond as he continued to lick clean the taste in his mouth. Suddenly, feeling unsatisfied, he sniffed the food on the ground that he hadn’t chewed thoroughly and ate it again.
This time, he chewed and swallowed it. He savored the aftertaste for a long while before climbing onto his mother’s lap again. “Roar! Roar!” He cried out towards the plate of braised large intestines.
Relieved, Eldest and Second began to ask for food as well. The three leopard cubs fought to cry out.
Parker was speechless.
Is it really that good?
He was the first to become suspicious as he could understand what the leopard cubs were saying.
Now that she had supporters, Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. Many people couldn’t get used to the taste of large intestines. She was worried that the family wouldn’t like it, and she didn’t want to seem like a crazy person every time she ate the dish.
When Eldest and Second ate the large intestines, their expressions were exactly the same as Third’s. Convinced that it was delicious, they chewed enthusiastically at first. However, they quickly realized that something was amiss and began to chew more slowly.
Hold it in. Continue chewing.
Ugh… I can’t take it anymore.
Eldest and Second climbed off of their mother’s lap and spat out the food in their mouths.
But, the taste in their mouths was great. They continued to lick their mouths, and when they were done, they felt like they hadn’t had enough.
They looked at the flavourful large intestines on the floor. With Third as the “pioneer”, they took another bite without hesitation.
This time, they were mentally prepared, and the peculiar taste wasn’t as off-putting. In no time, they swallowed their food and climbed back onto their mother’s lap to ask for more.
Now completely at ease, Bai Qingqing fed them again. She then looked towards her mates with a raised eyebrow.
“Told you it was delicious.”
Muir and Curtis still had stiff expressions on their faces. Parker, on the other hand, felt gluttonous as he could understand the children’s conversation. His hand tightened before it quickly reached towards the plate of braised large intestines.
Bai Qingqing grinned, antic.i.p.ating his reaction.
Parker was an adult and had suffered much hards.h.i.+p. He had sometimes eaten awful-tasting food for the sake of survival. It was just a plate of large intestines. It wasn’t so off-putting that it made him feel nauseous. He just felt that it didn’t fit his beautiful female.
He naturally finished a piece of pig’s intestine before licking his lips. “It’s not bad,” he said succinctly.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “Then, you all should try.”
Muir immediately grabbed a piece and placed it in his mouth. He ate it with a poker face, making it hard to tell if he liked it or not.
Curtis wasn’t interested in any of the foods on the table. Seeing that everyone said the food was edible, he paid no more attention to it and said resignedly, “You can have more if you like it.”
Bai Qingqing giggled before eating the intestines in big bites. She fed An’an a piece as well.
An’an liked the pork very much as it was succulent and tender. Just as she was eating with relish, she suddenly ate something that tasted peculiar.
Her calm face suddenly stiffened. Her silver eyes looked down towards her mouth as she stuck out her little pink tongue. Spit bubbles formed around her mouth as the food and her saliva dribbled down her chin.
“You don’t like it?” Bai Qingqing looked apologetic as she quickly wiped An’an’s face. Seeing that spit bubbles were still forming, she quickly gave An’an water to rinse her mouth.
An’an didn’t know how to rinse her mouth as she was barely over a year old. With her mouth on the rim of the cup, she continued to spit out bubbles, causing the cup of water to turn murky.
When it stopped, she refused to eat any more food Mommy fed her.
