Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At 8 AM.
At the entrance of Sunshine Kindergarten, there were already parents sending their children to school.
“Teacher Li, good morning!”
A thin little boy bowed at the teacher walking past him.
“Hello, Sun Jian.”
Ms. Li smiled in response.
She had just graduated from the Institute of Education half a month ago and received a childhood education certificate. She was among the newest batch of teachers in the kindergarten.
“Why dont… I just skip breakfast,” Ms. Lee muttered to herself.
After becoming a kindergarten teacher, she had to interact with many people every day – colleagues, parents, students…
Moreover, Ms. Li was just a 23-year-old girl. She valued her appearance and wanted to leave a good impression on everyone.
So she decided to lose weight.
“An apple every morning, a serving of vegetable salad at noon, a portion of chicken breast, a box of yogurt and a tomato at night.”
Ms. Li had persisted for two days on this diet plan.
However, when she reached the entrance of the kindergarten, an alluring fragrance suddenly wafted over.
“Whats that smell”
Teacher Li was slightly stunned.
Then, she walked towards the source of the fragrance as if her legs were not listening to her.
Soon, she saw a push cart shrouded in smoke.
As for the figure in front of the cart, it looked rather young.
Ms. Li took a closer look and realized that it was a child of eight or nine years old who was cooking skillfully.
With great curiosity, Ms. Li walked to the trolley and saw Xu Le cooking noodles.
Xu Les two little hands grabbed the two ends of the noodles and pulled hard. Suddenly, he smacked it against the chopping board hard, producing a loud and crisp sound.
White smoke billowed out of the boiling pot as he placed the noodles into the pot.
A few minutes later, he scooped out the noodles from the pot and placed them into a large bowl. He sprinkled salt, MSG, spice powder, chilli, and finally added a spoonful of hot oil.
Amidst the bubbling of the hot oil, a fragrant aroma wafted over.
Ms. Li widened her eyes in shock after smelling it.
This was too fragrant!
How about… a bowl
In an instant, Ms. Lis determination to lose weight was no longer as firm as before. That was because the bowl of oil doused noodles looked too delicious.
Even though the stall owner was only a child of eight or nine years old, it didnt affect the fragrance of the noodles at all.
Teacher Li could swear that this was definitely the most fragrant food she had ever smelled!
If she did not taste it, she would regret it for the rest of her life.
“Hello, Teacher Li.”
A timid voice came from beside her.
Ms. Li turned around and realized that it was her class student, Xu Tian.
“Xu Tian, youre here too… Where are your parents Arent they here”
Xu Tian nodded. “Dad and Mom went overseas. My brother brought me here.”
She even pointed at Xu Le, who was cooking the noodles.
“This is your brother”
Ms. Li exclaimed in surprise.
She had never expected that this little boy, who had been setting up a roadside stall to earn money, was actually the older brother of her student.
“Then as a teacher, I should support your brothers business.”
A sweet smile blossomed on Ms. Lis face.
Deep in her heart, Ms. Li continued to comfort himself. “I am not giving up on losing weight, I am just supporting Xu Tians brothers business…”
Immediately, Ms. Li felt less guilty with these thoughts.
“Xu Tians brother, give me a bowl of Oil Doused Noodles!”
“Alright, Teacher Li, please wait a moment!”
Xu Le recognized Xu Tians kindergarten teacher and immediately agreed.
A few minutes later, a bowl of oil doused noodles that looked, smelled, and tasted good was served to Ms. Li.
“Teacher Li, please enjoy.”
Looking at the big bowl of bright red and smooth noodles in front of her, Ms. Lis appetite was greatly aroused. The fragrance assailed her nostrils and rushed into her nose, stimulating her taste buds.
At this time, how could she still be concerned about losing weight
She picked up her chopsticks and picked up a few strands of noodles to eat.
Teacher Lis pupils suddenly dilated. It gave off a kind of hot and refreshing feeling and the noodles were smooth and chewy. The taste of spiciness had so much depth that it directly exploded in her mouth!
All the flavors mixed together to form a taste that was like a feast!
This bowl of Oil Doused Noodles was made using noodles kneaded by Xu Le on the spot. It was more delicious than the version the day before.
Ms. Li couldnt care less about her image anymore. No one could resist temptation in front of a real delicacy.
She continuously stuffed the noodles into her mouth.
Very quickly, most of the noodles in the bowl were gone.
“Teacher, you can really eat…”
Xu Tian frowned and said at the side.
The girl who was eating noodles was completely different from the gentle and beautiful Teacher Li she remembered.
Ms. Li could not even be bothered to reply and finished all the noodles in one go.
Besides Ms. Li, there was also a chubby little boy eating noodles.
He was the kid next door who had been crying because of his cravings. As he ate his noodles, there were two clear streaks of tears on his face.
Not only this chubby little boy, even his mother was also squatting by the side of the road with a big bowl of noodles in her hands.
At around 8 AM, more and more parents were sending their children to school.
After smelling this irresistible fragrance, a long queue quickly formed in front of Xu Les push cart.
Many people usually patronized the other food stalls at the entrance of the kindergarten.
Yet that day, all these customers gathered at Xu Les push cart.
The other food stall owners could only stare at this place with envious gazes.
Even many people who had eaten breakfast could not help but queue up when they smelled the enticing smell. They wanted to have another bowl of fragrant and spicy Oil Doused Noodles.
“Little kid, give me a bowl of Oil Doused Noodles!”
“Boss, I want two bowls!”
“I want a bowl of Oil Doused Noodles, it smells so good!”
“How old are you, little kid Youre already setting up a stall. Sun Jian, look at him. He knows how to earn money to support his family, yet youre still clamoring to buy toys every day!”
Soon, Xu Les push cart was surrounded.
Xu Le looked at the crowd and felt a headache.
There were too many people…
Im just an eight-year-old child!
