Chapter 87: Little Squirrel
When Xiao Xixi ran out again, she found that Concubine Bai Bianfei and Liu Xu had already disappeared.
She thought to herself that it was just right to leave, so there would be no need to give an extra portion of the roast duck to Concubine Bai Bianfei.
Xiao Xixi said happily: “Bao Qin, I just watched it.
The roast duck is ready.
Can I eat it now”
“Wait a moment, the slave will prepare.”
Bao Qin went to work in the small kitchen.
Soon she brought out the sliced roast duck.
In addition to the roast duck, there are many side dishes, sauces and pancakes that can be used together.
This was specially requested by Xiao Xixi.
She first picked up a small pancake, sandwiched a piece of roast duck meat and put it on it, then sandwiched some side dishes, brushed with sauce, and finally rolled up the pancake.
She opened her mouth and was about to eat, and caught a glimpse of the prince sitting across the table watching her quietly.
Xiao Xixi could only close her mouth and reluctantly handed over the freshly wrapped duck roll.
“Your Highness, try it.”
Luo Qinghan stretched out his hand and took the duck roll.
This is the first time he has eaten duck in such a strange way.
He tried to take a small bite.
Xiao Xixi asked expectantly: “Is it delicious”
Luo Qinghan slowly finished the duck roll in his hand, and then said, “It’s okay.”
It seems that every time he asks him if it’s delicious, he always answers this way.
Xiao Xixi couldn’t tell for a while whether he liked to eat or not.
She asked tentatively: “Do you want more”
Luo Qinghan nodded.
Xiao Xixi accepted his fate and continued to roll the duck meat, and handed it to him when it was done.
After rolling three duck rolls for Luo Qinghan in a row, he finally said no.
Xiao Xixi happily picked up her chopsticks and rolled herself an oversized duck roll.
She held the duck roll in both hands, opened her mouth wide, and took a bite.
Her mouth was stuffed with food, and her cheeks bulged.
As she chewed, her bulging cheeks moved.
Luo Qinghan looked at her and couldn’t help but think of the squirrel she had raised when she was a child.
He waved his hand back to the palace ladies and eunuchs waiting next to him.
Only the two of them were left in the room.
Luo Qinghan said carelessly.
“I once raised a squirrel, and you look a lot like it.”
The same greedy, the same cute.
Xiao Xi asked while eating, his voice a little vague: “Your Highness can also keep pets.”
Luo Qinghan had never told anyone about these things.
It was not that he didn’t want to say it, but that he couldn’t find anyone to tell.
At this time, he was in a relaxed mood, and felt that it was okay to talk about it, so he said.
“That was when he was six years old.
He picked up a squirrel in the imperial garden, and he didn’t know how it came into the palace.
He was still injured.
He felt soft for a while, so he took it back to raise it.”
At that time, Luo Qinghan was still young and unable to live independently.
He lived in the Jiaofang Hall with Queen Qin.
Luo Qinghan said slowly: “The mother doesn’t like small animals.
She is afraid that she will find the little squirrel, so she hides the little squirrel in her house.
I usually has to go to Taixue for class, so he can’t stay in the house all the time, so he asked Eunuch Chang to help keep an eye on it, so as not to let it run out and be discovered.”
Xiao Xixi swallowed the food in her mouth and asked curiously, “Then what”
“One day, when I came back from Taixue, I was told that the little squirrel was dead.
It was the mother who caused it to fall to death.”
Xiao Xi made a meal of eating.
She asked cautiously: “Have you been beaten”
Luo Qinghan: “No, my mother has never beaten me.
She just let me kneel in the yard all night.”
Xiao Xi was stunned.
Is it so cruel
