Chapter 7 - Ask Around
Li Hehua ate some brown rice porridge, washed up, and went out again the next morning.
She's going to another village today and inquire about people planning to have a wedding banquet.
Li Hehua walked all the way out of the village, heading towards west.
The houses on that place are dense.
It is a big village at first glance.
She finally reached the village after walking for more than an hour.
Li Hehua wiped the sweat from her forehead and found a place to sit and rest.
She has to wait for the sweat on her body to dry and stop gasping for breath.
If the people saw her, clothes messy and sweating profusely, she will definitely leave a bad impression.
After a long rest, Li Hehua sorted out her clothes and headed towards the village.
When the villagers saw her, they will look at her curiously, lower their heads and whispered at each other.
Without even listening, she knows that they are talking about her figure.
Li Hehua pretended to be blind and put on her brightest smile.
She walked straight to a middle-aged woman and said while a smile: "Sister, I want to ask you something.
Does anyone in your village getting married"
The middle-aged woman looked at Li Hehua from head to toe after hearing this, and then asked, "Why are you asking this Are you coming to our village for something"
Why does this woman's eyes look like scanners Li Hehua thought.
Anyway, this has nothing to do with her.
Maybe everyone is just curious and have a heart for gossip.
Li Hehua had no choice but to tell the truth: "Sister, I'm a chef actually, and I don't work in my original place anymore.
I want to continue my job in your Shiliba Village and came here to inquire.
After hearing this, middle-aged woman was stunned, her eyes clearly expressed the meaning of "you can still become a chef" She doesn't believe it.
Li Hehua continued to laugh: "Sister, I don't look like one right In fact, I'm really a chef, and no one can say that my craftsmanship is bad.
Look at my figure.
I've eaten so much as a chef for so many years, but I can't do anything about it.
I eat so well and got fatter and fatter."
Hearing what Li Hehua said, the middle-aged woman believed it a bit and said, "Then what a coincidence.
There is indeed someone in our village who wants to have a wedding.
You can ask in Old Man Wang's house."
Li Hehua's eyes lit up, "Really sister Then can you take me there for a while I'm sorry to bother you."
The villagers in this era are still very simple and have nothing to do, so they especially like to watch the fun.
Now that there is a woman claiming to be a chef and wanting to prepare a meal, they all came over to listen curiously.
Seeing that Li Hehua is going to Old Man Wang's house at this moment, everyone was interested and said that they could take her there.
The middle-aged woman stood up and waved her hand, "Come with me, I will take you there."
Li Hehua quickly thanked: "Thank you sister, you are really a good person."
The middle-aged woman was flattered so much.
The smile on her face becomes larger.
After walking for a while, they arrived at Old Man Wang's house.
The middle-aged woman walked into the yard first and shouted, "Old Man Wang! Old Man Wang! Is anyone here"
Hearing the shout, the person in the room responded quickly, "Hey, I am here! Coming!"
An old man then came out of the room.
It was Old Man Wang called by the middle-aged woman.
"Hey Aunt Cao, What are you calling me for"
The middle-aged woman pointed out let Li Hehua, "Isn't your family going to have a wedding This one said she was a chef and wanted to come to your house to cook."
Old man Wang's gaze fell on Li Hehua.
Doubts flashed in his eyes, "Aunt Cao, my family already planned to invite Zhou Laogen from Hexi Village.
We don't need it."
Li Hehua knew that this is a refusal, but she didn't want to give up so easily.
She took a step forward and said to Old Man Wang, "Hello uncle, my name is Li Hehua.
I'm a chef.
My craftsmanship is very good and no one dare to say that it isn't after eating it.
Your family is preparing for a wedding ceremony and the taste of the food in the banquet is important.
If the foods are delicious, isn't face-saving"
