Chapter 1614: Feast
By dinnertime, everyone in the family had gathered.
Shen Yin realized that this family was really lively. Other than Mu Tian and Mu Hai whom she knew, there was also the silver-haired uncle who had helped her resolve that issue at the bar, as well as Mu Ya’s father. To her surprise, there was even a movie star.
She silently counted a total of 13 of them. That was, a.s.suming the snake in Huahua’s hand wasn’t a demon.
Was this a demons’ settlement?
Shen Yin was utterly confused about the relations.h.i.+ps in the Bai family. Neither did Bai Qingqing explain to her, as she didn’t want to divulge too much.
Currently, there was only Shen Yin, but in the future, their family would have many more daughters-in-law. It was inevitable a few less-than-desirable characters might appear. As such, it was better to be safe than sorry.
“Eat up. Parker, bring out the barbecued meat now that everyone’s here,” Bai Qingqing said loudly.
Playing games at the kitchen entrance, Parker went to bring out the food while continuing to play games upon hearing that.
With one hand, he dragged out a whole roast pig nearly two meters long. With the other hand still playing games, he placed the tray on the table with a “bam”.
Shen Yin watched dazedly and grabbed Mu Ya’s hand under the table.
Mu Ya whispered to her, “You’ll get used to it. We have huge appet.i.tes.”
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes at Parker. “Still not done with your game? Quit playing. Eat first.”
“I’ve played for an hour. I’m nearly done. If I stop now, my efforts will go to waste, and my level will even drop.” As Parker spoke, he went back into the kitchen to bring out more dishes.
Speechless, Bai Qingqing scolded with a smile, “He’s never serious.”
Then, she said to Shen Yin, “But Parker has the best culinary skills. You’ve come at the right time.”
“Mm.” Shen Yin responded shyly.
After everyone sat at the table, the large dining table that resembled a conference table was fully surrounded.
As it was a formal occasion today, the little leopards were at the table as well. They sat on the chairs in an upright position, their paws washed clean and placed upon the edge of the table, looking like they were ready to eat.
One leopard roared in a questioning tone at his mother, a strand of crystal-clear saliva dribbling from the corner of his mouth.
Bai Qingqing said, “Alright, let’s eat.”
The leopards reached out with their right paw in unison and tore off a large handful of meat from the piping hot roast pig, before placing it on their plate and starting to eat.
Mu Ya also tore off a piece of meat and shared half of it with Shen Yin.
“Eat up. Can you eat with your hand injured? If not, I’ll feed you.”
Shen Yin shook her head repeatedly and raised her chopstick-wielding right hand to indicate that her right hand was fine. Then, she lowered her head and started eating.
It was indeed delicious. Shen Yin had never eaten such tasty pork in her life.
Placed before Curtis was a plate of poached prawns. He slowly peeled the sh.e.l.l and placed the peeled prawns in his mate’s bowl.
“You should eat. I can peel it myself.” As Bai Qingqing spoke, she inadvertently noticed that his sleeve was torn, and there were even traces of blood. She immediately reached out to pull up his sleeve.
“What happened to your arm?”
Shen Yin froze and looked at them in panic.
Curtis also raised his arm and took a glance. The wound had already healed, and no trace of it could be seen on his skin.
“Just sc.r.a.ped it accidentally. It’s already healed,” replied Curtis.
“Sor… sorry, G.o.dfather.” Shen Yin was nearly in tears. It wasn’t easy for them to get along so harmoniously. She didn’t dare to face Mu Ya’s mother suddenly turning hostile.
His mother probably didn’t like her now.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t too worried, to begin with. Besides, Curtis’s wound had also fully healed. Seeing Shen Yin like this, she began to worry about her instead.
“It’s alright, Little Yin, don’t blame yourself. He has coa.r.s.e skin and thick flesh. It’s just a pity that the clothing is ruined, though. I’ll help him mend it later and let him wear patched clothes.” Bai Qingqing joked. On the way back, Curtis had already reported to her that he had acknowledged Shen Yin as his G.o.ddaughter. That was why when she heard the form of address “G.o.dfather”, she was just a tad not used to it.
