    4.6

    There are three stories in this book. The first is the main story. The next two are the side characters' love stories. BOOK ONE: (COMPLETED) She closed her eyes and recalled that day which was the lowest point of her life that led almost to depths of despair and might have ruined her future. "Without that incident, will I be able to reach all of these? Would my life had been better or worst? Should I be thanking him now instead of hating him?" Without delay, he hugged her tightly. He heard her gasped a little and stiffened. Thus, he loosened his hold but didn't let go. He whispered in her ear, "I'll make sure I'm the first and last man in your life." She loosened up then rest her head on his chest and softly said, "they said a conservative man is a novelty nowadays, are you?" "Yeah, I'm a novelty borne just for you." This is a story combining cooking with romance. Let's accompany a girl named Beauty Ferol, on her journey from being bullied to find love while exploring the world of culinary with the support of a certain Your Romeo. Expect to see a lot of dishes that spiced up their lives. From the author: This is my first time writing a novel and I'm not a native English speaker. I want to thank for droopy for editing the first 60 chapters.

    Asha is now on the brink of helplessness and despair. Would she let despair to chase her for the rest of her life? Thus, she faces the man who wanted her dead and to stand as a woman in the world of chefs. She will create her own dishes and make his father's recipes alive again. Her adventures lead to clues of the real killer of his father and get entangles with love. Somehow, when she is face to face with the murderer, will she forgive or not? The Recipe of Love will show her the right decision to make. This is a story of a girl in her journey to become a lady chef while in life-threatening situations and falls in love. So, don't expect a fast pace cooking battles. It is Asha's journey. The setting of the story is India before its Independence in 1947. The exact timeline is 1945. However, in the first part of the story, I didn't use during the British occupation since the places/villages I mentioned do not exist in the present country. I used Bangla words since the culture is more on present Bangladesh. This is absolutely a fiction story. If you have questions about the culture, please ask me in the comment and I'll try to explain things to you. I can't write the culture within the story for that will bore you to death. Most are written in the Author's Thoughts. (This novel won the 2nd place in the writing prompt contest #34: Chef, but got the same prize as the first place. Thanks to all who supported.)

    They meet in the most unlikely moment and turned their life around. Freidrech newly arrived in his own nation's capital city, which is so foreign to him compared to his village's idyllic and nondiscriminatory atmosphere, after he is forced to come. Now, he is facing a royal prince and tells him to bow. This draws out one of his late father's teachings from the deepest recesses in his mind. "The blood of your great ancestors runs in your veins. Don't easily bow down to anyone, or accept suppression by any being, not even from a monarch, unless you pledge your allegiance to him. Also, giving in to oppression is directly telling the oppressor that you're easy prey and open for manipulation." He is uncertain on how to face this oppression right now. Will he bows or not? What will he do to uphold his father's words while keeping his life safe? As for the prince, Theodrech has nothing to do with Freidrech, so he wishes to let this slip, but the boy opens his mouth and proposes the most ludicrous challenge he ever heard and triggers his curiosity. "I, Freidrech Goederf Gerboud, son of the late Village Chief of Wrilon, will challenge you, Your Highness, to a battle of riddles… If you win, I will not only bow but be your servant for the rest of my life." This amuses the prince. It is the first he met a boy of the same age who is not intimidated by the air of authority he projects. Rather, this boy challenges him. "Why are you so headstrong? In fact, bowing to me is an honor. You saw the King's noble Knights. When they saw me, they bowed," says Theodrech, testing Freidrech. "Allow me to be forward, Your Highness. For me, bowing to a monarch does not guarantee loyalty. If I were you, I rather have men who stand straight in my presence but who got my back, than bowing men who are dreaming of my death," replies Freidrech. The prince’s curiosity increases. A huge smile is seen on his face. Prince Theodrech decides to take Freidrech under his wing. Little did they know, this boy who Prince Theodrech takes in as his confidant and friend in the most ridiculous fashion is someone indispensable in his life and the one who can help him succeed the throne when he almost believes he has lost. Thus, the Tales of the Legendary Scholar begins. ______________________________________ Release schedule: For now, every other day. Later, I will release daily.

    In the realm of Chiji, a mythical world where hidden powers lie. Chaos ruled because of a few became drunk with power and abuse it. And inflicted a terrible balance upon the plains and brought chaos to Chiji. From this chaos, opposition rose and plotted. And so, the good deeds of few power wielders were forgotten. What remained in the minds of people was the horrible past. Thus, their existence slowly waned through time. Somehow, in a magic-imbued past, where the longing whispers of Xinyi to Ming resonated, the whims of fate which will bring change can be heard. What did they say? Only with curiosity may one find the answer... However, out from these devastating times, a Sorceress will bloom and slowly bring balance to this world. ----- ❣ ----- They are wedded through imperial edict, but she anticipates much from it although there is no love. However, on their wedding night… "In fairness, I'll be honest with you. I don't like you. I prefer to marry someone I choose. From this day forth, you are to live in Anjing Pavilion" says Lei Ming with no reservations. She is aggrieved to be disregarded and treated this way. "Wait!" shouts Xinyi. Lei Ming halts his steps, pestered. "What now?" "I'm grateful for sending me there, Lord husband, but please don't miss sending my allowance and I promise I will not show up and bother you," says Xinyi and bows in a pious manner. "The heck, this woman is totally shameless." Xinyi watches Lei Ming's back as he walks away. When he is out of earshot, she gives a careless smile and rests her palms on her waist. "This is totally unexpected. What a farce of a marriage. So what? I don't care too..." she says as she suddenly jumps and swirls around in glee. "Hahaha, Yippee! Thank you, husband of mine. Send me here. Send me there. I don't care. Send me anywhere or send me to another country. Since you don't care, I don't care as well," sings the bouncy Xinyi. She dances, eats, and drinks in merry. But… an unexpected encounter under the moonlight changes everything. Most of all, when he discovers he is meant to protect his wife who is the blossoming Sorceress. Will love springs forth out of this? Will she reach the pinnacle as a Sorceress and protect the source of power in this world? Find it out as both of them journey this path forced on them by fate. ----- ❣ ----- TAKE NOTE: 1.) There is no sex but have some violence during wars and fights. Prepare for an adventurous ride in the story. Know that romance is not the focus of the story. 2.) The story is not totally under the Chinese background. This is a different world, and every nation had their own backgrounds. So, I don't follow the Chinese way of naming and calling of characters. Like using their full names when I mention them, even with the greetings. 2.) Please buy this author a coffee to keep me alert when writing and to help pay for the daughter's college fees: [ko-fi.com/elijoneb] Note: *I want to thank Forsaken123, another author here, for his help and insights in the earlier chapters of this book. *The cover image is not mine.
