Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
On Saturday morning, Lin Huang was awakened by Lin Xin because of her knocking.
"Brother, get up. It's time for breakfast!" Obviously, she sounded happy and excited.
"Yes, I know. I'm coming." Lin Huang looked at the clock and it was only 6.30 a.m.
After taking his bath, he changed his clothes and headed downstairs.
There were a few slightly weird-shaped, over-fried eggs on the dining table and a plate of refreshing looking salad.
Lin Huang walked behind the dining table and looked at the bowl of porridge. The girl had learned from the messed-up eggs. At least, the color looked fine and she did not simply add ingredients in the porridge.
"Brother, hurry up. After breakfast, we have to rush to get on the first eagle ride!" Lin Xin demanded.
"Take your time. We are not riding on an eagle to get there." Lin Huang understood why she was rushing.
"How are we going to go to Baqi City then? We are departing today, aren't we?"
"You will know later when we depart." Lin Huang slowly put a spoonful of porridge into his mouth. His facial expression changed immediately, forcing the porridge down his throat. He raised his head and looked at Lin Xin.
"Does it taste good?"
"Theres too much salt. It is unhealthy to take in so much salt." Lin Huang tried to be gentle with his criticism.
"Since I didn't add any salt in the fried egg and salad, I added slightly more salt to the porridge." Lin Huang glanced at the spice rack while Lin Xin was talking. Before this, there was at least three-quarters of salt left in the container placed on the semi-transparent spice rack. However, there was none left.
"You can sprinkle some salt or pour soy sauce on the fried egg and salad if you want more taste in your meal." Lin Huang explained patiently.
To reduce the saltiness, Lin Huang took a spoonful of green salad.
As he ate the spoonful of salad, Lin Huang felt like his skull was about to crack. He forced himself to swallow and took a serviette to wipe away his tears.
"Xin Er, how much mustard did you add to the salad?" Lin Huangs tongue was numb.
"I remember you telling me that some of the vegetables must be soaked to taste good. I added the whole bottle of mustard oil into the bowl and soaked the vegetables. I coat the vegetables and mustard oil well from top to bottom by wearing gloves. I spent a lot of time preparing this!" Lin Xin said proudly.
"No wonder the color of the vegetables looks so appealing. It has been coated with mustard" Lin Huang thought.
"Xin Er, I am stuffed. Enjoy your breakfast. I will wash the plates later." Lin Huang walked towards the sofa.
"Brother, you have not touched the fried egg." Lin Xin was upset.
"You can eat it." Lin Huang sat on the sofa and read the news.
Lin Xin ate all the dishes the salty porridge, the mustard-soaked salad and even the fried-egg. She gobbled them all!
"Was it possible that she was born with a weird sense of taste?" Lin Huang thought as he glanced at her.
In just a short while, Lin Xin finished all the food on the dining table. Lin Huang closed the news website and cleaned up the table.
"Brother, how are we going to Baqi City?" Lin Xin asked.
"Why are you being so impatient? You'll know later." Lin Huang was agitated.
"Have you packed?" Lin Huang asked.
"Yes, last night!"
"I'll check my room once again to make sure that I did not miss anything. Please check that the windows are closed and the lights are switched off and oh... Lock the door on your way down."
Lin Xin followed after him and went to check on the things Lin Huang mentioned.
Lin Huang had gone to his room. He closed the windows in his room and folded his quilts. He took one last glance at his room and locked the door. Lin Xin was coming down the stairs.
"Ive done everything you asked me to do. Can we depart now?" Lin Xin was clearly excited.
Both of them changed their shoes and walked out of their house. Lin Huang walked two steps forward and summoned the Viridian Wolf at Street No.101.
It was a majestic-looking Viridian Wolf. She paused for a long time and finally said, "Brother, are you an Imperial Censor?!"
"Yes, I am. I discovered it when I registered for the Reserve Hunter Assessment." Lin Huang did not tell her the truth because it would be hard for him to explain why he did not tell Lin Xin about this earlier.
"It's going to take a long time to reach Baqi City by riding on your Viridian Wolf" Lin Xin was curious.
"We'll ride on the Viridian Wolf until we get out of this foothold. We'll ride on other monsters later." He extended his hand and pulled Lin Xin up to sit on the wolfs back.
The Viridian Wolf stood up and ran towards the east gate of the foothold. They met a few acquaintances in the town who were filled with astonishment because of Lin Huangs fancy ride! After about three minutes, they arrived outside the east gate of the foothold. Lin Huang then recalled the Viridian Wolf and summoned the Alexandrian Eagle.
"It's so beautiful!" Lin Xin was staring at the white eagles pure, frosty appearance.
"The Alexandrian Eagle's speed is faster than an ordinary eagle."
"Brother, you're so amazing. You're capable of summoning two monsters!" Lin Xin complimented Lin Huang.
"Get up. You can sit on this weather-resistant cushion so you can get a better view of the scenery." Lin Huang helped Lin Xin get up on the Alexandrian Eagle and he followed after her.
"Onto Baqi City." Lin Huang instructed the Alexandrian Eagle.
The Alexandrian Eagle roared, fluttered its wings and flew up to the sky with both of them behind it
