Chapter 160 – Divine Fat Food Festival
– Orhhh… Splash… –
Whatever got into Wan Zheng-Hao’s stomach now poured out like water. – Splash… –
As Master Guan was enjoying the aftertaste of the tasty food, he didn’t expect his boss would have a ‘volcanic explosion’. Some nasty stuff that had come out from Wan Zheng-Hao’s mouth immediately got on his face and body all around…
He was stunned. And then he started to feel extremely nauseated… and then he was throwing up too…
Wan Zheng-Hao was puking badly…
It was quite a miserable scene. Master Guan already had nothing to puke now, yet Wan Zheng-Hao was still puking like a fountain… It looked like he was puking out all he had eaten in his life…
The maid standing aside was so scared that her face turned pale and she was shaking.
[What is wrong…
What on earth happened…]
Finally, Wan Zheng-Hao stopped puking. He lied on the chair with his head hanging there and spoke weakly, “Hurry… Hurry… Clean it up… Change clothes… Orhhh…”
He felt like throwing up again, yet there was nothing for him to puke at all. He just lied there.
Master Guan left to change his clothes with a dark face. He was now soaking in whatever came from the big boss’s mouth…
The maid had a quick reaction and she moved fast. After just a while, she had already finished cleaning the whole room. And the she brought up some sugar ginger soup for the big boss…
After a long while, Wan Zheng-Hao finally took a deep breath and moaned, “Oh my god… I must be the first one who have done such a thing and praised it… I… I may kind of create a record in the history…”
He was both sad and angry at the same time.
The door opened and Master Guan got in angrily. His face was still dark, “What happened to you, boss?”
He had been working in the salesroom for his whole life and he actually got puked on by his boss just now. And it was right after he had finished a good meal. He was really mad.
Wan Zheng-Hao turned his head weakly and looked at Master Guan. He opened his mouth trying to say something, yet he couldn’t.
[What can I say?
Do you want me to tell you… that those fat you ate was from me?
Do you want me to tell you that… I ate the fat that came from myself? And I praised it?
You want me to tell you that all of you have eaten the fat from my body and you all praised?
Well… I still have a sense of shame.]
Wan Zheng-Hao thought hard about what he should say, ‘Anyway… That fat… The cook can’t use it anymore… No one is allowed to eat that. No one!’
Yet he felt like it would draw people’s attention on this, so he smiled and said, “From now on, whatever is cooked with that kind of fat, I won’t eat it. Hmm. Not only that fat, all dishes that contain fat, I won’t eat them. I am losing weight. Understand? I am losing weight. No matter how delicious it is, I am out. Ok? Understand?”
Everybody was stunned.
That is a good excuse.
But do you really think you could possibly cover your strange behavior today?]
They all felt suspicions, yet none of them dared to ask more.
Apparently, their boss tried to cover up something…
He was the big boss, so even if it was a worst excuse, it would be the strongest excuse.
An excuse that no one could question.
However, foods that were cooked with that precious fat had become popular in the salesroom henceforth.
No one wanted to miss the food that was cooked with that fat. People held their bowls waiting in the canteen for the food. Nothing else could make them care more…
It was too precious…
That fat showed up in a fixed interval.
Sometimes, there would be a lot of it, while sometimes, there was just a little after being out of stock for decades …
Whenever people were waiting for it, Wan Zheng-Hao would stand there with a strange expression on his face.
There was a tale saying that only the big boss could get this kind of fat. No one else could find it, no matter how powerful he was…
In fact, that was no tale at all; that was just bullshxt. Of course there was only Wan Zheng-Hao who could find it.
Well… Looking at the fat that was drawn out from his own body cooked into dishes and eaten by lots of people… That must be a unique experience of Wan Zheng-Hao in the history.
The complex feeling in his heart… must be difficult to describe even for people who were rather good at writing.
A feast was held because of that fat.
At the beginning, there were tens of tubs of that fat in the salesroom…
That was such a happy year.
It wasn’t so priceless that year, because there was lots of it.
However, it was out of stock for a long time.
No one could find it anywhere.
After a hundred years, it showed up again… but there were only two or three tubs of it.
Whatever was rare became priceless. That was so true.
The day when the fat showed up again became a grand festival.
It was the Divine Fat Food Festival.
As time passed by, the salesroom became bigger and bigger under the lead of Feng Zhi-Ling.
Thus, this Divine Fat Food Festival became an important day in the Land of Han-Yang.
That was an annual festival on the 18th of July.
After ten thousand years, no one in the world would remember when and why they started to have this festival. Probably even no one would know the exact name of this festival… However, this festival lasted forever.
It became a tradition of the Land of Han-Yang…
The next night, Ye Xiao came to the salesroom as he had promised.
When he entered Wan Zheng-Hao’s room, he felt something strange in the room.
Wan Zheng-Hao looked like decades aged within only one day. He was filled with the aura of death. He just lied there like a dried fish.
He didn’t even have the strength to blink normally.
“What the hell? What happened?” Ye Xiao was shocked. He was confused.
Although he should feel bad and uncomfortable about being somebody’s servant, it was a bit unbelievable that he lied there waiting for death.
Wan Zheng-Hao was like a dying man who could only breathe.
It was a little bit better than how the ‘bone-melted’ Ye Xiao looked like.
“Master Feng…” Wan Zheng-Hao rolled his eyeballs forcibly. He looked alive a little bit when he saw Feng Zhi-Ling, “Finally, you came…”
He stood up after struggling for a while. He was staggering; weak like he could be blown away by the breeze.
It was actually a rare scene on Wan Zheng-Hao…
Wan Zheng-Hao didn’t want to get up at all, because he was too uncomfortable. However, he didn’t dare to in front of Feng Zhi-Ling, who was the figure that concerned his future after all.
“I have made up my mind. From now on, I will follow your lead.” Wan Zheng-Hao spoke.
That was committing loyalty; it should be powerful and loud.
However, he had been throwing up for a whole day. He was too weak and he felt like his feet were floating. He really didn’t have the energy to speak any stronger.
“Brother Wan, it seems you have had a long day.” Ye Xiao felt a bit pity for him and spoke gently, “Well I can understand how you feel in your heart. It must be hard for you to change your loyalty. Well, over time you will get to know what a wonderful decision you have made today.”
Wan Zheng-Hao was a bit anxious. He said, “No, no, no. I know it now. Being on Brother Feng’s side is definitely the most marvelous decision I made in my life.”
Ye Xiao was confused, so he asked, “But… Look at you… You don’t seem to be understanding, do you?”
Wan Zheng-Hao twitched his lips like he was going to cry. He wanted to say something, but decided against it.
Ye Xiao didn’t ask anymore. He said, “Did you use the dan bead I gave you? How was it?”
He was confident about the dan bead. However, because Wan Zheng-Hao was truly too unbelievably fat and he was now in a bad condition, he couldn’t tell whether Wan Zheng-Hao had lost weight or not.
Wan Zheng-Hao sighed plaintively and said, “It worked. It worked well… I drew out 50 kg oily fat for real… It was truly some wonderful dan bead…”
“Ah? Shouldn’t you be happy about it?” Ye Xiao was surprised.
[Since it worked, he should be rather happy about it. Is he too happy that he had gone crazy?
He looks really abnormal anyway. I don’t remember the Slimming Dan has such a side-effect. He should merely feel pain on his muscles. It shouldn’t have made him look like this.]
“I am happy! I truly am. I am really, really, really so happy… I am overjoyed…” Wan Zheng-Hao moaned, “But those bastards didn’t throw away my fat…”
“Urh…” Ye Xiao was confused. [What does that mean?]
“Hmm. The fat… What happened to it?” Looking at how miserable Wan Zheng-Hao was, Ye Xiao thought of a possibility which was hardly possible to happen but could explain the current situation. He nearly bursted out laughing and he asked, “You didn’t eat it back, did you?”
Wan Zheng-Hao was so upset that he nearly wanted to kill himself. He said, “Those lads… They cooked with the fat… I didn’t know… So I ate them… Honestly, they were tasty dishes… Yet when I found out the truth… I became how I look like now…”
He was still overwhelmed with sorrow while talking about it.
Ye Xiao opened his mouth looking at the sad Wan Zheng-Hao.
What he had guessed was actually the truth?
For a long time…
Ye Xiao bursted out with a world-shocking laughter. He kept rubbing his belly and slapping his legs, trembling because of laughing as tears went down on his face.
