Yan Zhou Ming: “…
…” F*ck that mother's taste.

    Yan Zhou Ming lay down and decided not to cook again.

    Luan Qing Xiao was the first to wake up after sleeping until two o’clockish.

    Her naps usually took no more than half an hour, but she was really tired today and rested for more than an hour before waking up.

    She gently tiptoed to the living room on the first floor and found a tea set to make a pot of tea for herself as she sat on a cotton cushion to slowly savor it.

    At this time, the landline in the living room unexpectedly rang, so Luan Qing Xiao stood up to answer the phone.

    “Hello, we are the guests who will be staying there tonight.” The opposite side said the moment she picked up.

    Luan Qing Xiao calmly picked up a notepad and ballpoint pen beside her and asked, “Hello, how many are in your group?”

    “Two people.”

    “What gender?”

    “Both men.”

    “And what time will you arrive? Do you guys need dinner?”

    “About seven o'clock.
Yes, we would like to order our meal.”

    Luan Qing Xiao wrote down the information that the man just said on the notepad, “What do you want to eat? If we have the ingredients, we’ll try our best to make it for you guys.”

    “Not just your best, but you must have to.” The man aggressively emphasized.

    The gears in Luan Qing Xiao’s turn.
She knew that the dishes he ordered would require ingredients they didn't have.

    Although the name of [Returning to A Country Life] sounds quite poetic like its lines of while picking asters ‘neath the Eastern fence, my gaze fell upon the Southern mountain, but the guests aren’t here to enjoy themselves.
The crew will definitely set up some plots for the guests to obtain the ingredients they need through missions.

    “Red Braised Pork Belly, Fish-scented Shredded Pork, and Sichuan Boiled Sliced Pork.
These three dishes must be there, while you can handle the other vegetarian dishes as you wish.” Once the man finished speaking, he hung up without waiting for Luan Qing Xiao's answer.

    All three dishes required pork.
They have fish and vegetables as well as chickens in the backyard, but they just don't have pork.

    I guess she has to wake everyone else up and find the director for their mission.

    Luan Qing Xiao went upstairs to wake the people who were still asleep and asked them to gather in the living room downstairs, saying that there was a mission.

    Although the four of them weren't fully awake yet, they all quickly came down, rubbing their eyes.

    Luan Qing Xiao poured a cup of tea for the four of them and told them what she had just received on the phone, “The visitors are two men.
If they are celebrities, they can room with Si Zheng and Zhou Ming.
If they are normal people, we can tidy up the room downstairs for them.”

    “Broiled Pork Belly, Fish-flavored Shredded Pork, and Sichuan Boiled Sliced Pork are the must-eat dishes for the two visitors.”

    “But we don't have pork.” You Si Zheng commented.

    “That's why I woke you guys up.
We don't have pork, so we can only accept a mission from the director to exchange for pork.
The visitors will arrive around 7 o'clock in the evening, which is a little more than four hours from now.
Excluding the two hours we’ll need for cooking time, we still have approximately two hours to complete the mission.”

    “Let's go find the director, now we can only hope the mission won’t be as difficult.” Luan Qing Xiao stood up first.

    Five people went out and found the director and cameramen waiting for them in the courtyard.

    The director took a few folded mission cards and walked over with a smile, “If you want to exchange food for us, you guys must complete a mission.
Now take one from the pile.
You have to do whatever you get and can’t change it.”

    Luan Qing Xiao asked, “Who’s going to draw it?”

    Yan Zhou Ming said, “I have no luck.”

    Qiu Xue Er said, “I’ve never won a lottery.”

    You Si Zheng was eager to try, “How about I try?”

    Yan Zhou Ming directly pulled him away, “You’re well-known in the entertainment circle for having stinky hands, please have a little self-awareness.”

    That left only Nie Zhen'er and Luan Qing Xiao, but Nie Zhen'er said, “I have never relied on luck since I was a kid, I always rely on myself.”

    “Then I’ll try.” Luan Qing Xiao smiled softly at Nie Zhen'er, “I think I have extraordinary luck.” To have met you.

    Luan Qing Xiao then randomly took one of the cards in the director’s hand.
She opened it and read it out loud, “The Yun Huai Hotel in town needs 25 fresh lotus roots which guests can dig from the pond and the program team will help deliver the lotus root to the Yun Huai Hotel in town.
After deducting the transportation fee, the guests can receive a catty of lean meat and a catty and half of pork belly.”

    “Digging for lotus roots? That sounds very interesting.” Qiu Xue Er said, “25 total roots, if we divide them equally, we only need to dig five roots each.”


    “Sure enough, Qing Xiao's luck is extraordinary.” You Si Zheng broke free from Yan Zhou Ming's grasp and ran back.
“But if it were me drawing the cards, it might have been only digging five lotus roots.”

    Yan Zhou Ming’s four group, “…
…” What kind of illusion does this guy have about his luck?

    The director suppressed his laughter, “The card Qing Xiao chose was already the easiest.”


    You Si Zheng didn't believe it.
He ran over and looked at all the cards in the director's hand before finally believing what the director said.

    “No, I have to try it once.” You Si Zheng put all the cards in the hands of the director again, “Director, you shuffle the order, I want to try my luck.”

    Yan Zhou Ming and Qiu Xue Er went over to watch the excitement.

    Luan Qing Xiao and Nie Zhen'er stood side by side and chatted.

    “What did you remember?” Luan Qing Xiao asked.

    Nie Zhen'er chuckled, “I remembered someone five years ago exclaiming that digging lotus roots and fishing for fish was easy, but the moment she stepped into the pond, her boots got stuck in the mud.”

    Luan Qing Xiao raised her eyebrows, “The me today is different from me from back then.”
