Chapter 260: When I Should Be Confident, I Never Have Stage Fright
The meal Yun Xi served was so appetizing that even the butler couldnt help but compliment it.
Jingdu braised ribs, casserole potatoes, sauteed potato, green peppers, and eggplant, boiled beef, braised baby cabbage in broth… It was home cooking that emphasized local Jingdu characteristics.
Mu Feichi was surprised.
He was astonished that his little rascal was even more impressive than hed thought.
After wiping her hands on her apron, Yun Xi stood to the side, took a pair of chopsticks, and handed them to Mu Feichi.
She wanted him to taste the food.
“My culinary skills are only average, so you will just have to tolerate them.”
Mu Feichi sat down and tasted every dish, when his eyes finally fell on the sauteed potato, green peppers, and eggplant.
It didnt look fancy, but the taste reminded him of his mother.
The chef theyd had at home was a veteran chef from Jingdu, and he sizzled the dishes in heavy sauces in accordance with tradition, and Yun Xi had done it exactly right.
It was just as his mother had cooked back in the day.
He could find barely any difference in terms of taste.
“Does it taste bad” Upon seeing his stunned expression, Yun Xi looked at the butler with a guilty expression on her face.
But the butler understood what was going on, and he simply smiled as he shook his head at Yun Xi.
This dish was Young Marshal Mus favorite dish.
The Mu family had used this dish to test out chefs during the hiring process.
The butler took the chopsticks and tasted it.
This taste…he hadnt tasted anything like it for many years.
Putting down his chopsticks, he nodded at Yun Xi and gave her a thumbs-up.
Mu Feichi snapped back to reality and coughed slightly, then he said in a slightly hoarse voice, “Sit down and eat.”
Yun Xi suddenly remembered that when she was picking out the vegetables, the butler had said that this dish was Mu Feichis favorite and that Madame Chongli used to make it for him when she was alive.
Upon seeing that he hadnt said anything critical, she guessed that he was probably moved by the taste of the dish.
“If it tastes delicious, eat more.” Yun Xi moved the dish in front of Mu Feichi.
Mu Feichi raised his eyes, and they gleamed mysteriously as his thin lips curled up into a faint smile.
It seemed as if she had exposed his most inner thoughts.
“I didnt say whether it was delicious or not, so why are you so confident in your culinary skills”
Yun Xi raised her eyebrows.
“When I should be confident, I never have stage fright.”
“Very good! I hope you can be just as confident at the banquet this evening.”
“…” Upon the mention of the banquet, Yun Xi felt guilty.
She was going to see the man who had contributed to her demise for the first time since shed been reborn, and she wasnt sure that she would be able to control her emotions.
The banquet was in the evening, so, for the entire afternoon, Yun Xi read materials in Mu Feichis study.
Great White slept on the carpet, and Mu Feichi was working on documents at his desk, so the atmosphere was uncharacteristically harmonious.
The information that Mu Feichi gave her was about the project between Chen Yichen and Han Yaotian.
This project wasnt small, and there were many other investors also involved.
Most of them had invested because it was a collaboration between two major clans, and they hoped to seize the opportunity to make a fortune.
Yun Xi wasnt familiar with this project.
In her last life, shed helped Han Yaotian come up with strategies.
He had used the Gulf Engineering Project to propel himself to his position as the president of the Han Group.
In this life, she wanted to do the same.
The human lust for power and affluence will swell infinitely, exactly how a sponge absorbs water.
Mu Feichi raised his head to look at her with a dazed expression.
Then he got up, walked over, and sat down beside her.
“Can you understand them”
Yun Xi came back to reality and shook her head helplessly.
“I dont understand everything.
I can read it, but I cant comprehend it all.”
Even if she did comprehend them, she could only play dumb, because as someone who had never experienced the business world, it would be too shocking if she comprehended them.
Mu Feichi took a document and placed it on the coffee table.
“I will briefly explain it to you.
If everything goes well for this project, then Han Yaotian, the person in charge, can use this cooperation to make a name for himself, and it wouldnt be difficult for him to gain a strong foothold in the business world.”
“Is this a good thing” Yun Xi squinted slightly as she eyed the document on the coffee table.
If Han Yaotian achieved such great success when he was so young and vigorous, his pride and ego would no doubt also swell.
Mu Feichi smiled.
“If its too easy to climb up, it can also be easy to fall down.”
If he achieves success without experiencing the cutthroat competition first, he wont last long.
