Chapter 41 – Stinky Tofu in the Nine Spiritual Mainland
When Xia Fukun exited the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce, he was as pale as a sheet of paper, unlike Chang Yuxuan, who was next to him with a face full of smiles.
“Young Master Kun, where are we going now?
“I heard from my uncle that you’re not only a Profound Realm martial artist but similar to me, a fourth-grade beast trainer?”
Hearing Chang Yuxuan’s words, Xia Fukun shook his hand immediately.
“No… I am not similar to you. We are not the same, thank you.”
With that being said, Xia Fukun clenched his fist, releasing his aura. It was so strong that Chang Yuxuan nearly kneeled down to him.
“War… Warrior Realm?”
Previously, Chang Yuxuan had heard a lot about Xia Fukun from his uncle. Just like any kid on Earth, they hated to be compared to other children by their parents. Thus, Chang Yuxuan was sure that the Xia Fukun in Master Ni Gu’s words was half made up of boasting.
However, he never expected that, not only were Master Ni Gu’s words all true, but Xia Fukun was even stronger than they thought!
He was a Warrior Realm martial artist!
And a sixth-grade beast trainer!
Even though Warrior Realm martial artists were nothing special in the Scarlet Water Province, it was a sixth-grade beast trainer who achieved this! And he was only about twenty years old, how could that not be jaw-dropping?
“Young Master Kun, can you take me as your disciple?”
Seeing that Chang Yuxuan was ready to kowtow to him, Xia Fukun immediately held him up.
“Please don’t…. What can I teach you with your talent of summoning food? We shall just have to wait and see if any weirdo teacher at Odin Academy likes you. What can I even teach you? How to summon stinky tofu?” (Translator note: Stinky tofu is a Chinese dish)
The thought of stinky tofu made Xia Fukun’s mouth water.
It was a dish that he enjoyed back on Earth, but sadly, such things did not exist in the Nine Spiritual Mainland, so he could only recall the mouthwatering taste of the dish.
This was the first time Chang Yuxuan heard this name, but he felt that it was the name of a food.
“Stinky tofu, stinky tofu….” Chang Yuxuan pondered hard. Suddenly, he heard a loud thud.
A plate of stinky tofu could be seen in Chang Yuxuan’s hand, and it looked and smelled exactly like the stinky tofu Xia Fukun had on Earth!
The smell made Xia Fukun turn back immediately and pop one in his mouth.
He frowned and patted Chang Yuxuan’s shoulder.
“Hey, so are you able to summon any food as long as I tell you the name of it, how it roughly looks, and the ingredients?”
“Yes. Young Master Kun, am I a beast trainer?”
“Duh! Of course you are!”
Xia Fukun felt that he had found a treasure. Chang Yuxuan might be unable to fight, but with Chang Yuxuan around him, he would be able to eat anything he wanted, from fried chicken to hamburger! Wow, staying in the Nine Spiritual Mainland would be magical in that case!
“Even though I’m unable to take you as my disciple, you will be under me from now on. Come to me whenever someone finds trouble with you.”
Looking at how serious Xia Fukun seemed while saying this, Chang Yuxuan nearly burst into tears.
Ever since he unleashed his talent for summoning food, everybody took him as a joke.
It’s unavoidable, isn’t it? You’re summoning food when others are summoning beasts! But of course, Xia Fukun was sure that everyone just failed to see the good of Chang Yuxuan.
After returning to the Xia family, Xia Fukun spent two days just sleeping. Seeing that time was up, Xia Fukun brought Chang Yuxuan along to bid Xia Kuangyun and Xia Fuqian goodbye.
However, Xia Fukun was unable to find Xia Fuqian. Well, maybe he has gone off with the magical egg to hatch it. I wonder if he will get something out of it by the time I return to Summer City. The Monster Refining System mentioned that, due to the low price, it’s harder to hatch.
He also reminded Xia Kuangyun to contact Shadow if anything happened, as it was unknown how long Qingmu Duan would be in seclusion.
Back at the palace, Ye Qingwan and Qingmu Xuan were surprised by the plump teenager following behind Xia Fukun.
“This… is your relative?”
From afar, Qingmu Xuan could smell barbequed meat. Only when Xia Fukun and Chang Yuxuan got closer did she realize it was the plump guy who was eating barbequed meat.
What surprised them was not the meat, but… the plump guy seemed to have an infinite supply of barbecued meat!
“No, he’s from the Red Maple Chamber of Commerce. Since he’s heading to Odin Academy too, I allowed him to tag along with us.”
“Alright.” Ye Qingwan nodded.
“What realm is he in? The Profound Realm?”
Odin Academy was rigorous in admission. To be even an outer disciple, one needed to meet the criteria of being a Profound Realm martial artist.
“He’s not a martial artist.” Xia Fukun shook his head and pushed Chang Yuxuan to the front. “Stop eating and show them your talent.”
Chang Yuxuan immediately wiped the oil stains off his mouth and made a seal with his hand.
A loud thud could be heard.
And a plate could be seen in Chang Yuxuan’s hands.
Ye Qingwan’s and Qingmu Xuan’s faces looked utterly surprised.
“It’s so smelly! What the hell is that!?”
