4391 The Phoenix Clan’s Gift of Thanks (12)
Huang Yueli smiled as she took the initiative to step forward and said: ” Lord Zhao Lin, you have already seen it so why do you still ask the obvious? That’s right, we’re just roasting a few roast chickens here to eat. It’s not a big deal. I wonder why you’re so angry? Is there a rule in the Perched Phoenix Canyon that you can’t make a fire to cook?”
Zhao Lin stared at the grill behind Huang Yueli.
On the grill, there were two roast chickens that had just been roasted halfway. Under the burning of the open fire, the skin became scorched and crispy bit by bit. Drops of oil dripped down and fell into the fire. The fragrance was stimulated by the heat of the fire and quickly spread in the air.
The Phoenixes present swallowed their saliva in unison.
Zhao Lin subconsciously wanted to do the same.
However, he remembered his identity in time and forcefully held back.
Zhao Lin clenched his right fist and placed it against his lips. He coughed lightly to cover up his uneasiness.
“Cough cough, there is indeed no such rule in the Perched Phoenix Canyon, but…”
However, phoenixes were generally vegetarian. They basically ate raw food. Occasionally, they would catch a little snake or rabbit to eat. They would also simply cook it with the spiritual water in the mountains.
Who would set up a grill and roast chicken in the open like her?
Zhao Lin held it in for a while, unable to refute. He turned his gaze and saw the pile of medicinal herbs at the side, and his expression immediately darkened.
” Barbecuing isn’t a problem, but where did these herbs come from?”
Huang Yueli gave a slight smile, with a pure and innocent expression,” Medicinal herbs…Of course, it was brought by the seniors. I treated everyone to roast chicken, and the seniors probably felt sorry, so they brought me a small gift. Is that not okay?”
” This is called a ‘small’ gift?!” Zhao Lin’s face was so dark that ink was about to drip out.
Huang Yueli blinked her big eyes as she deliberately said: ” Isn’t that so? Didn’t the seniors just say that they picked this from the back of the mountain? Are you lying to me?”
Most of the phoenixes in the canyon were born and raised in the Perched Phoenix Canyon. They rarely left the surrounding dense forest, so their personalities were very simple.
They had never thought that Huang Yueli, this kind of pure and innocent looking young lady, would be so cunning as to trick them.
Upon hearing her words, everyone spoke up to testify for her.
“That’s right. I picked this Blood Mysterious Yang Scarlet Flame Grass from the back of the mountain. Isn’t that right?”
“Yes, yes. I also got my Silver Frost Spirit Dew from the back mountain.”
“Miss Huang is absolutely right!”
“Lord Clan Leader, Miss Huang can make such delicious roast chicken. Everyone wants to eat it, we can’t just eat and drink for free here right? That’s why we thought of bringing some gifts over…”
“Could it be that we gave too few gifts? Did you embarrass the Phoenix clan?”
Zhao Lin saw that these phoenixes had not reacted to being played. They were still counting money for others after being sold. He was so angry that he almost fainted!
If he had known earlier, he would not have forbidden the phoenixes of his clan from leaving the mountain as they pleased.
Look at all of them. They had all become so silly and sweet. They had no idea that the things in their hands were priceless treasures!
He was fooled by that extremely cunning little girl of the God Race with just a few words!
He gritted his teeth in anger.” Don’t you have brains? “Although the medicinal herbs in your hands are everywhere in the back mountain, they are priceless treasures in the territory of the god race! Roasted chicken is worthless in the Divine Realm. You were all deceived by that little girl!”
