Is It Too Late to Leave the Chat Group? Book 01 Chapter 003: Boosted Luck

“Look, I brought you out for lunch. I did not mistreat you, right?”

“Yes, yes, yes. You did not mistreat me. To think that you are willing to go to such expense! So, what good thing happened to you? Tell me about it.” Mo Qingtong looked at the dishes before her with gratification; they were all food she loved. At the same time, she felt curious about why Chen Heng would treat her like this on an ordinary day.

“Alright, let’s not waste time talking. Let’s eat. Aren’t these all your favorites? You won’t be getting such a treat again.”

“Alright! Alright! Let’s start!” Mo Qingtong picked up a piece of cola chicken and placed it in her mouth. As she ate, she kept commenting, “It’s so good! I have not eaten such good food for some time already!”

[TL Note: Here is the Wikipedia entry on cola chicken: Surprisingly, it does taste quite good, and it’s quite easy to make.]

There was a reason for Mo Qingtong’s comments. It was not that she was impoverished. On the contrary, she had a privileged family background. Simply put, her father’s family was wealthy, and her mother’s family had political power.

Those who knew her situation would think she had nothing to worry about. In fact, that was true—except in one area: food.

Mo Qingtong’s mother, Liu Yunxian, was a flawless and perfect woman in the eyes of others. However, she had one critical flaw: a poor sense of taste. Furthermore, she had a beloved hobby: cooking. Combining a poor sense of taste and a love for cooking produced an extraordinary reaction.

In the Mo Family, Liu Yunxian held all the rights to cook. Aside from special occasions, she cooked all three meals of the day.

Breakfast was still alright. It was an ordinary Western-styled breakfast. Occasionally, there would be some fried dough sticks and soy milk. However, lunch and dinner were disasters. Chen Heng had the “fortune” of trying it once. The taste was indescribable.

[TL Note: The Western-styled breakfast likely refers to fried eggs, sausages, and toast or some variation of that, like sandwiches.]

[TL Note: Wikipedia entry for fried dough sticks:]

One might think, since Mo Qingtong couldn’t eat well at home, couldn’t she sneak out and eat outside? Sorry, that wouldn’t work.

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link.

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here:

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.


Join the Discord to chat about the novel or anything else and earn the server currency that can be exchanged for advanced chapters (in the future):

Check out my Youtube channel to watch me play games as well as the occasional live translation session:
Also, check out my Twitch, give us a hand and drop me a follow. We do a weekly stream playing games while discussing Chinese cultivation, culture, and novel topics. I also do live translation sessions, or games.

Do support the Patreon as that is our only source of income. Also, you get advanced chapters up to the Marital Disciple tier to read ahead of the public release. Note that any tiers above Martial Disciple will not give more advance chapters for TOOLATE, only 8 max; you just get more EIF chapters; more TOOLATE tiers to be added in the future. You get both EIF and TOOLATE advance chapters.
