He had a complete set of ingredients ready on hand. There was salt, cumin, sauces, and so on. He sprinkled the seasoning, layer by layer. Before it was fully baked, it had already released a delicious smell. The aroma was so fragrant when it was mixed in the air.
Zhu Duqing originally stood there silently to absorb the essence of the moon. However, this smell got him drooling. It stirred up his desire to eat.He walked back to Di Fuyi’s original spot and looked at the golden pheasant’s hair that had been removed. He then looked at the golden pheasant meat that was grilled on the bamboo stick.
As Zhu Duqing was quite knowledgeable, the more he saw the ‘chicken,’ the more familiarized he was about it. He was certain that he had encountered the creature before. All of a sudden, something flashed in his mind, and he finally remembered. “This is the Green Phoenix!”
Di Fuyi looked up at him with a surprised expression. “You seem to be very knowledgable.”
Zhu Duqing opened his mouth slightly and looked stunned by Di Fuyi’s remark. The Green Phoenix was the mythical beast among the three realms. Their eggs were precious items that practitioners in three realms wanted to obtain. The value of the Green Phoenix itself was undeterminable due to its rarity.
The practitioners who obtained one would worship it like their ancestors. And yet, such a precious bird was actually baked! It was cooked! Such a waste! It was no wonder that the smell of the bird had attracted Zhu Duqing. It was so precious that it could probably help the person who consumed it to become immortal.
Zhu Duqing walked two steps forward before asking, “How is this Green Phoenix so small?” He often heard that this bird could carry people, but its size really made it hard to believe. It should be bigger than a swan at the very least. However, this bird looked around the same size as a normal pheasant despite its supposed power.
“This is its smallest form.”
“Can it change size at will?”
It was really a mythical bird! Hence, could one blame Zhu Duqing for thinking so? Besides, he did not care about his image. He smiled. “I do like eating the head or feet of a chicken.” As long as he could take a mouthful, he did not mind.
Di Fuyi finally glanced at him. “You are too optimistic!”
Zhu Duqing was speechless. He smiled and waved his fan. “How can you eat it all alone?”
Di Fuyi’s eyes flashed slightly. He looked at him and seemed to be in deep thought. He said something very softly, and Zhu Duqing did not hear it clearly.
“What did you say?” Zhu Duqing walked two steps closer to him as he asked.
Di Fuyi looked at Gu Xijiu, who was meditating. She was so deep into her meditation that she was not following the conversation between the two men.
He sighed and waved to Zhu Duqing. “You can come over.”
Zhu Duqing was afraid of him, so he remained very alert.He stood at the same place and snorted. “What do you want to do? There are no outsiders here. Why can’t you just be clear?”
Di Fuyi smirked, and his eyes looked watery. He simply stared at the man and smiled.
Unfortunately for Zhu Duqing, his heart actually pumped faster! He thought to himself that the person in front of him must be a devil! Nonetheless, he still walked over to the man.“What do you want to say…”
He had no chance to finish his sentence as a seven-colored lightwas headed right toward him! He seemed to have lost his vision and wanted to scream, but it was too late. Even though he could still see, he was unable to move.
He had transformed into an actual bamboo! A slender, green bamboo that was swaying in the wind.
“Di Fuyi, what are you doing?!” The slender green bamboo shook and blurted.
Of course, he did not dare to yell so as not alert Gu Xijiu and let her see him in this form.Di Fuyi put his finger on his lips to signal him to keep quiet. “Keep quiet; do you want to wake her and let her appreciate your slim and graceful physique?”
