Chapter 29 (Part 1): The Culinary Tycoon


In the early morning of the next day, Chang Le got up on time, his eye bags were blue and black. It was obvious he didn’t rest well at first sight.

“Brother Le, didn’t you sleep last night?” Yu Qingze asked with concern when he saw Chang Le with two panda eyes.

Chang Le hurriedly waved his hand and gestured twice.

Yu Qingze had been learning sign language with Chang Hao recently, and he now understands the meaning of many gestures. Translated on ho lo lo novels dot com. Read there for the real latest chapters. He guessed: “You mean mosquitoes got into the bed net, so you didn’t sleep well?”

Chang Le nodded slightly, then hurriedly lowered his head again. He was embarrassed to tell a lie, but fortunately Big Brother Yu seemed to believe it.

Seeing that his eyebags were so dark that he looked like he hadn’t slept all night, and his face was haggard, Yu Qingze felt distressed and frowned, “Brother Le, rest at home today, I’ll just go with Xiaohao.”

Chang Le shook his head, saying that he was fine, he wanted to go, and he was very determined.

Yu Qingze said, “You’re not in a good mood, the weather is hot, be good, rest at home.”

Chang Le insisted on going.

It happened that Grandpa Chang also got up and asked, “What’s the matter?”

Yu Qingze said: “Grandpa, Brother Le didn’t sleep well last night. I let him rest today. He doesn’t want to. Please persuade him.”

Grandpa Chang looked at Chang Le’s face and said simply: “Xiao Le, you are resting at home today, I’ll go.”

Chang Le wanted to fight for it, but Grandpa Chang’s face tensed up, and he only said two words: “Be obedient.”

Seeing that Grandpa was about to get angry, Chang Le nodded, feeling a little annoyed.

After eating breakfast to send them out, Chang Le didn’t go back to catch up on sleep and rest. After finishing the housework, he put on a straw hat, took a hoe, and carried a dung pan to the fields. Recently, they have been busy with the food stall, and have not been paying attention to the fields. He didn’t know how the seedlings are growing.

After walking around several fields, he found that the seedlings are growing quite well. The weeds in the fields have been pulled up, and there is only one field left, which may not take too much time to pull.

Immediately, Chang Le rolled up his trousers and went down to the field to pull weeds.

After an hour, the weather was getting warmer, Chang Le felt a little down, got up, and went back to the ridge on the road to sit down and rest for a while.

At this moment, Wen Li came over with a dung pan on the small road. Seeing Chang Le, his eyes lit up and he came over immediately.

“Hey, Brother Le, why are you at home today? Didn’t you go out with AZe to open the food stall?”

Chang Le felt a headache when he saw Wen Li, but he still nodded and pointed to the field, indicating that he was pulling weeds.

“Oh, you’re pulling weeds.” Wen Li put down the dung pan, squatted down in front of Chang Le, and whispered, “Hey, Brother Le, I want to ask you something. Did matchmaker Liao come to the door for Aze yesterday? Dis he bring a marriage proposal?”

Chang Le hesitated for a while, then nodded lightly.

“Sure enough, it was for Aze! Oh, I was preempted!” Wen Li patted his leg in annoyance, and then asked, “Which family’s ger?”

Chang Le looked at Wen Li and pretended not to speak.

Wen Li poked him with his finger and said anxiously, “Hey, tell me, which one?”

Chang Le shook his head and didn’t tell him. Uncle, if he finds out about this person, the gossip would spread far and wide. Brother Yu and Brother Qiao will be embarrassed enough to die.

“Hey, you kid, am I not your uncle?!” Wen Li scolded and said again, “Alas, no matter which family it is, the most important thing is, that, did Yu Qingze agree?”

Chang Le’s eyes flashed, he didn’t know whether to nod or shake his head. Anyway, no matter whether he nod or shake his head, there will be nothing good in the future.

He simply played dead again, didn’t speak, neither nodded nor shook his head.

Wen Li was so angry at his appearance that he said, “Oh, if I hadn’t been at home yesterday, I wouldn’t have to ask you! Tell me, what kind of ger does Aze like?”

Chang Le thought in a trance, I also want to know what kind of ger big brother Yu likes.

“Hey, I guess you wouldn’t know if I ask you this question.” Wen Li saw that Chang Le didn’t answer, and said again: “He’s doing such a good business at the food stall now, there must be a lot of people who come to propose marriage in the future, even though he is a bit older, but as a man, being able to make money to support a family is the most important thing.”

Chang Le listened to his uncle’s broken thoughts. He didn’t respond to a word, and then heard the sentence ‘There must be a lot of people who come to the door to propose marriage later’, and the irritability and depression that had haunted him all night suddenly surged again. When they came up, he felt suffocated, and his brows furrowed tightly.

Wen Li didn’t notice the change in Chang Le’s face at all. He bumped Chang Le with his elbow and asked, “Hey, Brother Le, do you think there is any hope for your Brother Yue?”

Chang Le turned his head suddenly, stood up, stared at his uncle, frowning tightly.

Uncle, are you crazy? Brother Yue is not yet fifteen years old, and he, he, he is lazy, how can he be worthy of Brother Yu! How could he be better than himself!

Better than himself?

Chang Le was suddenly stunned.

“Hey, why did you suddenly stand up? You scared me so much that my heart could come out.” Wen Li was alerted, he stood up, clutching his heart, but he still didn’t give up his question: “Hey, Brother Le, you haven’t answered me yet”

Chang Le was still in a daze, and he didn’t respond.

Wen Li called out a few words, but seeing that the other party didn’t respond, he felt bored, scolded him, picked up his own dung pan, and walked away.

After Wen Li left for a while, Chang Le was still in shock…

Just now, did he just think about something shameless?

How could you think of such a sentence!

Better than himself…

Better than himself?

Do you want to be Brother Yu’s husband?

Chang Le shook his head vigorously, throwing this crazy thought out of his mind, but he couldn’t hold it back in a small corner of his heart. A small seed called ‘expectation’ was struggling to break through the ground and probe out.

He couldn’t help but imagined that if he could become Brother Yu’s husband…

Thinking about every bit of getting along with Big Brother Yu these days, Big Brother Yu taught him to write, Big Brother Yu brushed the fingers on his cheek, Big Brother Yu touched the warm palm on his head, and his gentle eyes and smile, his generosity……

Chang Le’s face immediately turned red, from face to ear to neck, it was all red, and the temperature was scalding to death.

Ashamed and angry, he stretched out his hands to cover his face, and slapped hard twice to wake himself up.

Chang Le! Are you crazy too!

What are you thinking about in a mess! How can you have thoughts about such a good person as Brother Yu! You don’t think about yourself, you have such ugly scars, and you can’t speak, maybe you can’t even give birth to children!

How can you be the husband of Brother Yu as if you are the one?!

A basin of ice water poured down.

All the charms, fantasies, and expectations instantly disappeared without a trace…

Chang Le stood blankly for a while, touched the scar on his forehead, picked up the hoe blankly and put it on the dung dustpan, then walked back home.

His head is so dizzy, he needed to take a nap to wake himself up.

When Yu Qingze and the others came back in the evening. Translated on ho lo lo novels dot com. They found that Chang Le’s face was still haggard, and the originally bright eyes were no longer as bright as they used to be. People were a little worried.

“Brother Le, are you feeling unwell? Did you have a good rest today?” Yu Qingze approached him and reached out to touch his forehead, worried that he might be sick.

Unexpectedly, Chang Le saw his hand stretched out, his body suddenly took a step back, his eyes were panicking, and he shook his hands to indicate that he was fine.

Yu Qingze: …I feel that I have been despised.

Chang Hao saw it, walked over, and asked, “Brother, what’s wrong with you? Are you not feeling well? Are you tired?”

Chang Le shook his hand and made a gesture, indicating that he just hadn’t slept well.

“You didn’t rest during the day today?” Chang Hao asked with a frown.

Chang Le nodded and shook his head again, indicating that he fell asleep, but he didn’t.

It was confirmed that he was not sick, it was really just that he hadn’t slept well and lacked energy, and people were relieved. But if you don’t sleep well, it will be difficult to properly function, so you can only go to bed earlier at night.

  4. Thanks for the chapter!

    I mean it’s understandable if MC thinks that ML doesn’t have feelings for him so he doesn’t confess, but sometimes I really dislike this trope cause they keep stressing ML out. Like, they could at least confess and tell them the reason why they won’t marry or somethin – COMMUNICATION IS KEY YO

    Anyways, thank you for the update~ Always looking forward to these things!

      I know, I hate when people mind read and don’t tell things. Gotta speak out and let others know. Thank you for your support, iceCream ☺️
