ATBBMPL – Chapter 22
Everyone praised that the fruit was well grown.
Elder Pei didn’t mention how happy he was: “Shen Tingshuang not only grows watermelons deliciously, but the apricots and peaches are also first-class, sweet and delicious, with endless aftertaste. If you eat one, you will want to eat more.”
Everything Elder Pei described make them want to eat, but they couldn't. Thinking of the vegetables and fruits that Shen Tingshuang had just brought, they also wanted a taste.
But they knew that this was impossible. There were many guests in the evening, and it was definitely not enough to use the produce brought by Shen Tingshuang to supply the banquet.
When everyone was chatting, someone came in.
Shen Tingshuang raised her head: Ho, an acquaintance.
She saw a pair of handsome man and beautiful woman appeared at the door. The man on the left was chic and handsome, and the woman on the right was gentle and pleasant.
The two went together pretty well.
Pei Wenshu stood up and welcomed: "Young Master Fu is here, please come in."
Fu Letian, the hero of the book, was smitten with Shen Xuan. He doesn’t even want to look at other woman.
But it seemed that the hero and heroin in this book were already together.
After Pei Wenshu saw the woman next to Fu Letian, the smile on his face faded.
Fu Letian carried a gift: "My father has something to do and cannot attend the banquet. Let me apologize to Grandpa Pei." If Pei family was an upper-class family, the Fu family has a slightly higher status than the Pei family.
Elder Pei didn't care: "Come in quickly, but it's unfortunate for Young Master Fu. We ate all the watermelons just now." Everyone hurriedly said,
"Yes, it's really unfortunate for Young Master Fu to just arrive."
"The watermelon tastes really good."
"Or else Elder Pei, you can let the servant take out little bit more, and let Young Master Fu also have a taste."
"Yes, Young Master Fu will definitely have endless aftertaste after eating."
"I think idea is great."
Fu Letian looked confused: "?"
What the hell, did he look like he has never eaten watermelon?
Shen Xuan, who was standing next to Fu Letian, didn't look very good.
Elder Pei had his birthday and did not invite the Shen family. Although the Shen family was not as good as the Pei family, the Shen family will always be on the invitation list for banquets held by the Pei family in the past.
This time, the Shen family didn't even receive the invitation.
Because of Fu Letian's relationship with her, Shen Xuan was able to come to Pei's house. She didn't expect to see Shen Tingshuang as soon as she entered the door. The key was she sat next to Elder Pei!
Today, Shen Xuan dressed up carefully, and specially selected a light pink evening dress. The makeup was applied for two hours, just to show it off at this banquet.
As a result, Shen Tingshuang who was not wearing an evening gown, and there was no powder on her face, showed a face could stun everyone at the scene. This was the first time that Shen Xuan had a sense of crisis facing Shen Tingshuang.
Fu Letian took Shen Xuan to the seat. Shen Xuan looked at Shen Tingshuang and said softly, "Sister, you also come to celebrate Grandpa Pei's birthday."
Shen Tingshuang was not interested in Shen Xuan and the man next to her. So she was very indifferent after hearing this, it was in sharp contrast with Shen Xuan's expression: "Otherwise?"
Shen Xuan choked, she glanced at Fu Letian, and lowered her head aggrievedly.
How could Fu Letian bear seeing Shen Xuan feel sad, so he suddenly said dissatisfied: "Is it good for someone to talk like this?"
Shen Tingshuang: "?"
Why is this annoying couple so disgusting, she was not the one taking the initiative to provoke, they were, right?
"Then what do you want me to say?"
Elder Pei knew about the relationship between Shen Tingshuang and the Shen family, but he didn't expect Shen Tingshuang to be so straight forward, she didn't even bother pretend to go with Shen Xuan's tricks.
Fu Letian choked. In the past, Shen Tingshuang would blush when she saw him, and she also didn't dare to say a word. If he yelled like this, Shen Tingshuang would definitely cover her face and leave, but today Shen Tingshuang unexpectedly responded directly.
Li Xiaoru said next to him: "Xuan Xuan is so gentle and considerate. Does Miss Shen have any opinion on Xuan Xuan?"
She seemed to be biased towards Shen Xuan when she speaks, but it's not that strange. Shen Xuan was gentle, so she was likable. Of course there were some people that can see through her facade, they saw that Shen Xuan's gentleness was fake.
Shen Tingshuang didn't know the twists and turns in this lady's heart. When someone asked, she replied: "Yes."
Everyone was stunned. Even if there were opinions on anyone among the rich, they would not say it directly. Shen Tingshuang at this moment, she directly said she didn't like Shen Xuan.
Fu Letian stood up directly, with a very aggressive tone: "I knew you were an unkind person!"
He knew that today was Elder Pei's birthday banquet, so arguing with others was not good, but for the sake of Shen Xuan, he didn't care anything about Pei family's face.
Shen Tingshuang: "?" What?
What kind of strange remarks are this, Shen Tingshuang also stood up and pointed at Fu Letian: "I have an opinion against Shen Xuan, which side of this made me an unkind person? Fu Letian, is your brain caught by the door? Could it be that because I hate Shen Xuan's I am not a good person to you?"
Shen Tingshuang stretched out her hands, "Do you have such a big face?"
Lu An'an chuckled. The Lu family was on a similar level to the Fu family, so they are not afraid of Fu Letian. Plus, Lu An'an felt Shen Tingshuang was right, so she said: "I think Tingshuang is right. Shen Xuan is not RMB. How can everyone like her?"
Lu Zhengye knew Lu An'an. He can’t control her personality at this time, so he changed the subject: "I heard that the swimming pool you just decorated is very good. Is WenShu free to show us around?"
Pei Wenshu also knew that Lu Zhengye wanted to find an excuse to leave the place. After all it was a quarrel between the younger generations, if they interrupted, they would look nosy. If they didn't interrupt, it would be even more embarrassing. It would be better to find an excuse to escape.
Everyone agreed and left, leaving only Elder Pei sitting here. He knew Shen Tingshuang would not suffer, but he just wanted to stay here to support her.
Secondly, he also wanted to see how Shen Tingshuang frustrated those people.
The way that little girl speaks, unlike any rich family, always surprising.
Soon, only Shen Tingshuang, Fu Letian, Shen Xuan, Lu An'an, Li Xiaoru and Elder Pei were left in the entire living room.
It looked a little weird, but Elder Pei only sat aside and didn't speak.
Shen Xuan bit her lip, she pulled down Fu Letian's sleeve: "Letian, sister does not mean that."
Lu An'an suddenly reacted: "Ting Shuang, are you her sister?"
Shen Xuan has already called Shen Tingshuang sister twice today.
Shen Tingshuang: "You can say that."
The original owner was the real daughter of the Shen family. She didn't know where Shen Xuan came from, but now Shen Tiande regards Shen Xuan more like a daughter than his real daughter.
When Shen Xuan heard this, she cried even more.
Fu Letian stood up again: "Shen Tingshuang, are you bullying people like this? Xuan Xuan is the eldest daughter of the Shen family. What are you? Did the Shen family recognize you as a daughter when they took you back?"
These words can be described as arrow straight to the heart; Lu An'an and Li Xiaoru were both stunned on the spot.
Elder Pei’s eyes were full of dissatisfaction. Why was the Fu family so annoying? When he was about to speak, he only listened and said, "F*ck you, what business you have with the Shen family?"
Fu Letian was stunned. After listening to Shen Tingshuang, he didn't say the anything for a long time. He didn't care about this kind of rude and arrogant woman. Fu Letian pulled Shen Xuan up, "Xuan Xuan, let's go."
Shen Xuan was crying and followed Fu Letian to leave.
It took a long time for Lu An'an to react: "Shen Tingshuang, you are the daughter of the Shen family."
"Ah, yes." Shen Tingshuang said. "But I don't live in the Shen family house."
Lu An'an knew that Shen Tingshuang lived in Xin Yuan Shan. For a long time, Lu An'an only knew that Shen Xuan was the Shen family's daughter, and never knew there was another one. Shen Tingshuang situation, Lu An'an has already made up a scene in her brain based on the conversation just now.
Li Xiaoru originally disliked Shen Tingshuang, but she disliked Shen Xuan even more. Seeing this scene today, she doesn’t hate Shen Tingshuang anymore. After all, the enemy’s enemy is a friend: "Let’s add a friend on wechat, you If you need help, you can find me."
Lu An'an gave Li Xiaoru a perplexed look. Just now she didn't like Shen Tingshuang very much. This suddenly changed. Sure enough, a woman's mood change can be faster than flipping a book.
Shen Tingshuang: "Okay."
Shen Tingshuang knew that Li Xiaoru was a little hostile to her when they first met, but the kindness that Li Xiaoru released now was also obvious.
Lu An'an also took out her mobile phone: "Add me too."
Elder Pei sat with satisfaction and continued to look at the magazine next to him.
Soon the banquet arrived at lunch time, and the servants were almost ready. Elder Pei invited everyone to the table. He sat in the first seat, with Pei Wenshu on the left, and Shen Tingshuang was arranged on the left of Pei Wenshu.
This kind of seating method was really wrong, but this was what Elder Pei wanted, he can't wait to let Shen Tingshuang sit on his left.
The dishes came quickly, and they have to say that Pei family's Chef craftsmanship was good.
Shen Tingshuang ate very happily, especially the chili fried pork, the chili inside was delicious, the aroma of chili, after swallowing it for a long time, can still wrap around the tip of the tongue.
This chili also has a hint of sweetness, and after being fried with meat, it has a bit of meaty taste.
It's crunchy with one bite, and it makes people unable to help but eat a few more bites of rice.
After taking a bite, Shen Tingshuang was able to confirm that this chili pepper was the one planted by her, and it contained a little spiritual energy.
Except for Shen Tingshuang, everyone else applauded as soon as they eat this dish.
Li Xiaoru’s father, Li Xiuwei said, “Wenshu, your chef is really amazing.” Such a plain piece of fried pork with chili was better than the main dish, especially the chili in it, which robs the main position from meat. With its fragrance, Li Xiuwei even felt that if there was no meat, just fried chili would be delicious.
Pei Wenshu was a little modest: "Where, it's just so so."
The chef has cooked this dish before, the taste was really not as good as today, and he don't know if the chef's cooking skill has excelled today, the taste has improved several levels.
When Li Xiuwei said this, he saw the person next to him, never stop their chopsticks, and soon the dish almost bottomed out. Li Xiuwei didn't say anything more and hurried to eat.
Three minutes after the dish was served, it was gone.
Elder Pei faintly felt that something was wrong, and called the chef: "How did you make this dish?"
The chef saw so many big bosses in front of him, he said carefully: "First take out the meat and cut it into shreds, then add the cooking wine and consumption. Pickled in oil, wash the peppers, and cut them into shreds..."
Pei Wenshu also reacted and interrupted the chef: "This pepper?"
The chef: "Oh, didn't Madam Zhang just bring a vegetable basket in? I saw that the chili inside is quite good, I used it. Moreover, this chili is really fragrant. When I cut it, I can smell it. When it is fried, the fragrance of this chili is even more appetizing.” He almost went back and asked where this pepper come from.
Elder Pei's face was almost green with anger. The basket was sent by Shen Tingshuang. How could he use it so casually: "Get out."
