When night fell, Lu Xingzhi brought Jiang Yao out of the house. Due to the weather in Shu City, most people there had dark skin, which was several degrees darker than that of Jiang Yao from the south. It was even darker than that of Lu Xingzhi, who trained under the sun all year round.
If Lu Xingzhi had been walking alone on the street there, he might not have attracted anyone’s attention. However, Jiang Yao’s skin was so fair that a puff of wind could break it. One would not often see someone like her in Shu City, so they attracted quite a lot of attention.
Lu Xingzhi did not let go of Jiang Yao’s hand for even a second. He looked like an old hen protecting a chick. He did not dare to let Jiang Yao out of his sight for even a second.
On the other hand, Jiang Yao was curious about the cultural architecture in Shu City. Her attention was focused on both sides of the road. Occasionally, she would be attracted by the smell of food.
Even though the economy in Shu City was relatively slow, there was no lack of high-end restaurants and entertainment venues. No matter how poor the city was, there would always be rich people.
When they first arrived, Lu Xingzhi was afraid that Jiang Yao might not be able to adapt to the environment, so he did not dare to take her to those stalls to eat. Even though he knew that Jiang Yao was hungry, he still led her to a restaurant that looked clean and decent.
Coincidentally, they saw Ah Zhu the moment they entered the building. Ah Zhu was in a private room in the innermost part of the restaurant. However, the door was not closed, so he could see Ah Zhu’s men at a glance.
Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao looked at each other. They tacitly decided to pretend that they did not know that Ah Zhu was there. Then, they found a spot that was away from the private room.
“What do you want to eat?” Lu Xingzhi handed the menu to Jiang Yao. When he saw her looking at the menu quickly, he said, “No kebabs, don’t even think about it.”
Jiang Yao’s expression froze. After a while, she pushed the menu to Lu Xingzhi. “Then you order. I’ll eat whatever you want.”
That guy was like a worm in her stomach—he knew what she was thinking at a glance.
The smell of the skewers by the roadside was too delicious, so she had been craving them.
In the past, when Lu Xingzhi knew that she wanted to eat them, he would get some for her. However, he did not do it that day. Although Jiang Yao did not quite understand, she did not ask him about it. She knew that he had his own reasons.
Lu Xingzhi said, “We’ve just arrived at a strange place. It’s better to eat something light to adapt to the weather and feng shui here. If you really want to eat it, I’ll get you some in a few days. I heard that the skewers in Shu City are really delicious.”
“The most famous dish in this city is the Flower Feast. Are you here on business or for a vacation? While you are here, you should try the Flower Feast. That is a specialty in Shu City, but we don’t have it in our shop. However, you can eat it at the Hundred Flowers restaurant, but it’s not cheap,” the waiter at the side said before he introduced their restaurant’s special dishes to Lu Xingzhi and Jiang Yao.
After they ordered some dishes, the waiter left to deal with their order. Jiang Yao pretended to be interested in watching the bustle in the restaurant, but her attention was on Ah Zhu’s private room.
Jiang Yao was not surprised to see Brother Ding, who had not been in Shu City for the past few days, in that private room with Ah Zhu. However, the people in the room were surprised to see them; they did not expect to see the two of them there.
