Shi Kaixin looked at Jun Qingyu’s helpless expression and said with a laugh, “I’m joking, I’m joking.
Get angry for brother to see.”
Shi Kaixin was certainly aware of what was going on.
He was just teasing the little mermaid on purpose to see how he would react.
He looked at Shi Kaixin who was cheerful.
Jun Qingyu: “……”
The knife was already in his hand.
Others belonged to the work team but you belonged to the atmosphere team.1
Fu Yuanchuan raised his hand to obstruct Shi Kaixin’s line of sight, “Stop teasing him.”
Jun Qingyu grabbed Fu Yuanchuan’s hand and looked up at Shi Kaixin.
Consider yourself lucky!
Otherwise, you’ll be gone with a swoop of my knife!
Fu Yuanchuan put the little mermaid on the side of the round table.
Jun Qingyu originally wanted to do it on his own outside but Fu Yuanchuan could not rest assured.
He was not at ease even with a toy knife.
Jun Qingyu was afraid that Fu Yuanchuan would find someone else to help him, so he just came in with Fu Yuanchuan.
Fu Yuanchuan helped to put the fruits and vegetables and cutting board in place.
Eventually, he settled the little mermaid down and said, “Play on your own.
Call me if something happens.”
“Eeeeeeee.” Jun Qingyu waved his hand.
Go about your business.
Jun Qingyu waited for their meeting to begin and only began to take the vegetables and fruits out from his space when there was no more discussion.
Although the round table wasn’t close to the place they had their meeting, it wasn’t very far either.
It was easy to see if his movements were too big.
The meeting room was said to be the safest place in the whole villa and the most unlikely place for surveillance.
So it would be fine as long as Jun Qingyu was careful not to get discovered by the people at the meeting.
When he was taking the vegetables and fruits, Jun Qingyu deliberately took a bitter melon.
He planted a few bitter melons; it was especially good to give it to Shi Kaixin.
Although the knife was small, it was more convenient for Jun Qingyu to use than a large knife.
It was just that he would cut slower.
The small plates were prepared according to the number of people.
After he cut one portion, he would put it down and then cut the other vegetables and fruits.
He used a portion of it from his space and a portion of it from the kitchen.
He cut them into small pieces and mixed them together so that no one could tell the difference.
Jun Qingyu was engrossed in doing it and Fu Yuanchuan glimpsed over from time to time during the meeting.
He watched how the little mermaid raised his tail with glee every time he set up a plate.
It was so cute.
Jun Qingyu noticed that someone was looking at him.
He subconsciously raised his head to look over and saw that it was Fu Yuanchuan.
Jun Qingyu smiled.
He raised his hand and pressed it against his lower lip and gave him a flying kiss.
Get to work.
Fu Yuanchuan was stunned.
The corners of his mouth could not stop from lifting upwards.
Fu Yuanchuan gave a light cough, his smile vanished and said in a deep voice, “Carry on.”
When Jun Qingyu was done preparing their food, their meeting was almost over.
He poured yoghurt into the fruits and vegetables that had been cut, mixed it with some fruits and vegetable juice so that the difference in texture would not be as obvious as when they were eaten dry.
“There really was a snack.” Shi Kaixin smiled and said, “You knew that we’ll be tired from the meeting.
Little mermaid, you’re too sweet.”
Jun Qingyu turned his hand and threw half of a bitter melon over.
You talk too much!
Shi Kaixin didn’t even look at it and took a bite straight away, “Is this for me You are too……”
His voice abruptly stopped, Shi Kaixin was rendered speechless from the bitterness.
His expression was distorted from the bitterness.
What the hell is this!
Shi Kaixin opened his mouth, wanting to throw up but Fu Yuanchuan said indifferently, “Don’t waste it.”
Shi Kaixin closed his mouth immediately and swallowed that mouthful.
Fu Yuanchuan picked up the little mermaid and held him in his hand, “One serving per person.”
A few people, who were so tired from the meeting that they massaged their shoulders, walked over to take a look.
“Wow! Did the little mermaid make that It must be delicious.”
“Who said that mermaids only knew how to eat, drink and play Look at the marshal’s mermaid! He still knows how to make a meal.”
“He’s really amazing.”
Jun Qingyu tilted his head.
He felt like they were complimenting a child.
It made sense.
He was cutting vegetables and fruits here and it should look like he was playing a game to them.
They said it was delicious before they even tasted it, they seem to be coaxing a child.
Several people picked up a bowl each and didn’t expect that the stuff the little mermaid made could be delicious.
Since he was playing house, they also went along with it.
Moreover, interstellar vegetables and fruits were unpalatable, which was a well-known matter.
They also did not harbour any hope that it would be delicious.
But after having a bite, the major general at the table was immediately stunned.
This is……spiritual energy
Why was there spiritual energy in the vegetables and fruits
Furthermore, the taste of the vegetables and fruits didn’t taste as dry and bitter as the ones they usually ate.
On the contrary, it carried a coolness and sweetness that was mixed with the yoghurt.
The aftertaste was only slightly poor but it did not make people think that it was unpalatable.
Once they ate it, the few who had spoken moments ago were now quiet.
Fu Yuanchuan also tasted it.
Jun Qingyu looked at Fu Yuanchuan without blinking.
In order to balance the taste, he used a lot of interstellar vegetables and fruits.
Fu Yuanchuan had drunk the fruit juice from the vegetables and fruits in his space; he should have thought that this portion of vegetables and fruits he ate wasn’t as delicious.
Fu Yuanchuan finished a bowl and saw the little mermaid waiting impatiently and staring at him.
He said, “Delicious.”
“Eeeeeeee~” Jun Qingyu hugged Fu Yuanchuan’s finger and shyly wrapped the tip of his tail around his wrist.
As long as you like it.
Shi Kaixin finished a bowl and said, “Marshal! This is really delicious.”
It tasted better than the vegetables and fruits he ate previously.
Shi Kaixin asked, “Why does the taste of this batch of fruits and vegetables seem to have changed”
Their position in the empire wasn’t low.
There would be a portion of fruits and vegetables distributed by the empire every day but the taste was nowhere near as good as the one they had today.
Some nourishment could not be supplemented by the nutrient solution, so they could only rely on the unpalatable vegetables and fruits.
After eating them for a long time, one would get used to them.
But as it turns out, they suddenly tasted something so delicious today.
Shi Kaixin felt that he might not be able to eat any other vegetables and fruits anymore.
“It’s not the vegetables and fruits.” Fu Yuanchuan said, “The little mermaid releases spiritual energy when he is making something.”
Shi Kaixin smacked his lips as if he truly did feel the spiritual energy.
However, he was too preoccupied with eating to pay attention to these details.
The major general couldn’t help but say, “This is too awesome.”
The interstellar people would always undergo body strengthening at regular intervals and impurities would be produced after the strengthening — only spiritual energy could break them down.
That means that only a mermaid could do it.
However, the number of mermaids were scarce and the method to obtain a mermaid was harsh.
If the impurities were not removed and accumulated over a long period of time, it would cause one’s mental energy to collapse.
The only solution was to buy a mermaid.
Soldiers with a lower rank could only rely on simple medicine to sustain themselves.
But the little mermaid could unexpectedly release spiritual energy into food.
The major general asked, “Can all mermaids do this”
Fu Yuanchuan was silent for a moment before he said, “ I don’t know.”
Jun Qingyu also thought about this question but he did not have much contact with other mermaids; he didn’t even talk to them before.
“When you go back, send me a report on your latest itinerary.”
He paused, then Fu Yuanchuan added, “I want a complete, detailed report.”
A few of them looked at each other in dismay.
Although they didn’t know the reason why, they still responded, “Yes!”
The meeting room quieted down in the wake of them leaving.
Fu Yuanchuan stood still and didn’t move.
Jun Qingyu felt bored after sitting for a while so he changed his posture and lay on Fu Yuanchuan’s hand, raising his head to look at him.
Fu Yuanchuan was originally thinking about some things but was attracted by the movement of the little mermaid.
His fingertip wrapped around a strand of hair by the little mermaid’s ear.
He lifted his finger and rubbed it against the little mermaid’s cheek.
“Eeeeeeee~” It was a little itchy, Jun Qingyu quickly hugged his finger, preventing him from moving.
And then his tail was touched.
Jun Qingyu froze.
Did Fu Yuanchuan discover something
It made sense that Fu Yuanchuan would ask them about their itinerary or a detailed report.
Jun Qingyu hugged Fu Yuanchuan’s finger and rubbed against it, “Ee~ya~”
There’s no need to say thank you between us.
Looking at the depths of his cute little mermaid’s eyes, which were clear and pure, Fu Yuanchuan chuckled lightly; he was extremely happy.
Everyone’s itinerary reports were sent to Fu Yuanchuan’s email on the third day.
Some operational sites were not recorded in regular missions so they needed to remember where they had been to.
It was a difficult task and it wasn’t easy to incorporate all the details in the itinerary in three days.
Fu Yuanchuan sat in front of the computer and singled out all the areas that overlapped in the report.
Then, he analysed some of the dangerous areas again.
Jun Qingyu sat at the table, watching Fu Yuanchuan being busy the entire time.
He also wanted to know what kind of place could make subtle changes to a person’s mental energy.
If he could find out, it was best to add them to the blacklist on the places Fu Yuanchuan could not go to before he recovered.
The effect on ordinary people was subtle but it wasn’t so for Fu Yuanchuan.
It was too dangerous.
Fu Yuanchuan looked at the serious little head in front of him, “Aren’t your eyes tired staring like this”
“Eeeeeeee.” Jun Qingyu did not look back at the computer.
It was getting late.
Before they knew it, they had been in front of the computer and staring at it for an entire afternoon.
Fu Yuanchuan said, “Close your eyes and rest for a moment.
I’ll clean the place up and show it to you, okay”
Jun Qingyu obviously didn’t want to rest, he felt that he could still look at it for a few more hours.
Since the opening of his space, he has been using the spring water in his space to take a bath.
It was beneficial for his body.
Even without exercise, Jun Qingyu felt that his body was getting better and better.
“Eeeeeeee~” Jun Qingyu raised his head and glanced at Fu Yuanchuan.
Fu Yuanchuan rubbed his head and helped him to dab water onto his fishtail.
He said, “Then you must tell me if you’re feeling unwell.”
Jun Qingyu nodded obediently, “Eeeeeeee!”
It was a little uncomfortable to sit on his tail like this.
Jun Qingyu thought for a while and pulled Fu Yuanchuan’s hand, which was placed by his side.
It was said to be pulling but in fact, Fu Yuanchuan perceived his strength and followed in the direction he pulled.
Jun Qingyu hardly required any effort.
Jun Qingyu held Fu Yuanchuan’s hand, positioning it at a suitable angle.
Then lay on it.
It was just right for him to place his chin on his finger; it was very comfortable.
Fu Yuanchuan behaved the whole time, letting the little mermaid move and cooperated with him from time to time.
He found himself to be in a comfortable position to lay down and there was a gentle smile on his face.
But when he looked closely, he found something was wrong.
Fu Yuanchuan frowned and looked at the little mermaid on his palm in doubt.
He stretched his fingers and tried to measure him.
He wasn’t the same length as before, when the tip of his tail happened to be right on his wrist.
The tip of the little mermaid’s tail had already exceeded the position of his wrist.
It seems that……
Jun Qingyu perceived Fu Yuanchuan’s gaze but didn’t know what he was looking at.
After a while, seeing that there was no movement from the other party, Jun Qingyu tilted his head in confusion, “Eeeeeeee”
The pad of Fu Yuanchuan’s finger lightly swiped across his pale golden fishtail and finally fell on the tip of his tail.
“Little fish, you seem to have……grown up a bit.”
