Gu Mengmeng only added the smashed ginger into the pot when Bode was almost done cooking the fish soup. When the soup boiled, she then added the fish for it to cook.
Actually, a meal cooked with only fish and ginger is similar to that of a meal eaten during the month of confinement, and really could not be considered a delicacy. The only reason Gu Mengmeng’s cooking was so well-loved was because the food structure here was too scarce and simple.
The fish soup that was cooked for about two hours was simply exploding with fragrance, so much so that it attracted almost everyone in Saint Nazaire.
However, most males still followed territorial boundaries and did not step foot into Sandy’s home, but those females who did not care about causing trouble did not bother respecting the boundaries.
With Nina taking the lead, she and another female whom Gu Mengmeng did not remember the name of walked in together. Nina taking long strides as though she was strolling about her own backyard, while the other female followed behind like a servant. Both of them approached Gu Mengmeng, one standing behind the other.
The wound on Nina’s neck was still hurting, having suffered a few times in the hands of Gu Mengmeng. After looking around, she noticed that Elvis was not present, which made her calmer than before. Then, she cleared her throat pretentiously while pointing to Sandy’s pot, asking: “Hey, what are you doing, you lowly half-orc female?”
Sandy stood up in a hurry, clasping her hands and replied, “It’s… it’s not me, Gu Mengmeng is the one who is making something delicious.”
Gu Mengmeng knew Sandy was used to being bullied by Nina, so she was rather taken aback that she would talk back to Nina for her.
What reason did Gu Mengmeng have to not protect a friend who, for her, did not cower despite clearly being afraid?
Hence, she got out of Lea’s arms, standing with a straightened back, her arms naturally wrapped around Sandy’s. Since she was not as tall as Sandy, she appeared like a timid, tiny bird beside her. Yet this “tiny bird” was somewhat aggressive, and had frightened Nina till her legs were wobbly, even without opening her mouth.
Gu Mengmeng sneered contemptuously, instigating, “Why? Are you here to apologize and admit your wrongdoings to Adali?”
“Apologize?” Nina’s sharp voice pierced through the air, hurting Gu Mengmeng’s eardrums.
Gu Mengmeng dug her ears with her tiny hands, asking unhappily, “Why are you going to act as if nothing happened when you beat up someone like that? Did you strut here boldly because you were afraid that I wanted to seek revenge but couldn’t find where you live?”
Nina was afraid that Gu Mengmeng would hit her. Furthermore, Elvis had told her clearly with actions earlier today: If she were to provoke Gu Mengmeng, he would kill her.
Since she was frightened, she did not appear as triumphant. However, at the end of the day, Nina had been “First Beauty of Saint Nazaire” for a long time, with the support of admirers all around her. She was used to being spoiled, and the self righteousness in her bones had caused her to not have a wise understanding of herself. She thought, since Elvis is not around, anyway…
She then mustered her courage, retorting, “When males and females fight, the outcome will either be injury or death. How could you blame me for that? Why must I apologize when his uselessness caused him to lose against my maleness?”
“Yo-ho,” Gu Mengmeng said as she started to roll up her sleeves. Nina had seen this position twice, and her conditioned reflexes told her that this meant Gu Mengmeng was about to beat her up again. Frightened, she took two big steps back, staring cautiously at her. Gu Mengmeng did not bother about Nina, pointing right at her nose, “Since you presented your despicable self to me, I would be sorry if I didn’t beat you up today.”
