“Delicious.” It was a pity that there wasn’t enough.
Deputy General Zhao regretfully uttered as he eyed the empty earthenware pot.

A soldier next to him was gloomy.
Official Zhao didn't have his fill.
While he didn't even get to taste it.
He could only smell the aroma.

“If Guest finds it good, I'll save some more for you tomorrow.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.

Deputy General Zhao nodded at once, “Then I'll come back tomorrow.”

It was set like this.
The long-faced soldier paid for the meal and the three of them left.

When Mrs.
Chen saw the money, she was overjoyed.
She whispered to Jiang Yun Zhu, “He paid forty for this meal.”

Her tone was wistful.
Don’t know whether she was amazed at how much Deputy General Zhao ate, or because they had just earned forty.

“As food sellers, should we be afraid of big-bellied men?” Jiang Yun Zhu responded.
Forty coins may be a lot of money in Mrs.
Chen’s eyes, but in the eyes of rich people, it wasn't worth mentioning at all.

That Deputy General Zhao was of high ranking at first glance.
Spending so much money was nothing.

Chen pondered and agreed.
“Then let's make more stewed meat tomorrow?”

She asked expectantly.

“En.” Jiang Yun Zhu nodded with a smile.

Everyone continued to pack their things.
Chen picked up a bowl on the table and went to the opposite side.
That bowl was from the stall selling mutton soup on the opposite side.
The soldier brought it over just now.
It had to be returned now.

The sellers of mutton soup were a middle-aged couple.
The woman's surname was Sun, and was excellent at making soup.

“Your business is really good!” Mrs.
Sun accepted the bowl and said with a superficial smile.
Since Jiang Yun Zhu started to set up a stall, her business had decreased a lot.
Especially today.
The deputy general trio usually came to her to drink mutton soup and were her big customers.
Now they were snatched away by Jiang Yun Zhu today.
How can she not be angry?

“It’s just earning hard money.” Mrs.
Chen vaguely responded.

Sun was so jealous.
Who was she fooling? She obviously made money.
She gritted her teeth and asked in a casual manner, “Look at your daughter.
She is beautiful and skilled.
Got a match?”


Sun latched on at once, “Then how can you let her show her face all day long?

For girls, the most important thing is reputation.
With her current actions, who would dare to marry her in the future.

Aren't you harming her like this? She doesn't understand now.
In the future, she might blame you for the rest of her life.”

Chen's face turned pale from what she said.
If possible, she certainly hoped that Jiang Yun Zhu could eat and drink at home without worry and then marry a good husband.
Sun's words hit her weak spot.

Seeing this, Mrs.
Sun became even more energetic, “Female ah, they are dependent on her husband and children.
No matter how much you earn…”

“In that case, why does Auntie Sun sell soup here every day?” Jiang Yun Zhu heard her tongue wagging for a while now and was annoyed.
So she asked immediately.

“How am I like you? I'm married.” Mrs.
Sun didn't expect Jiang Yun Zhu, a junior, to interrupt her.
At once, she angrily rebuffed.

“How is it different? According to what Auntie say, you have a husband and children.
You should take care of your husband and child at home.” Jiang Yun Zhu threw back.

Sun's expression was ugly.
She also wanted to enjoy life at home, but the family lacked money!

“It can be seen that husbands and children aren’t necessarily reliable.
While money is more reliable.
In this case, why don't I make money first instead of being at home dreaming and waiting for a good man to marry me?

Which one is more realistic? Auntie is such a smart person, you would know, right?

Or Auntie said that on purpose.
You can‘t stand others better off.
“Jiang Yun Zhu scoffed.

Sun's mind was exposed.
Her face turned red.
She jumped to her feet, “On purpose? I told you this for your own good, but you actually bit back at me! It was really a dog biting Lu Dong Bin.
Can’t recognise good intentions.”

Jiang Yun Zhu sneered.
The words ‘for your own good’ were the most hypocritical in the world.
It was for your own good that I don't let you go out to make money.
I only did this for your own good…
this was all a cover up.
It was all for themselves.

“Since Auntie wants the best for me, you shouldn't say these things to make my mother sad.
Instead, be more practical.
For example, if someone slanders me, you can clarify for me.
If someone else…”

Jiang Yun Zhu had only said a few words and Mrs.
Sun wanted to spit in her face.
Dream on!

“Look!” Jiang Yun Zhu had expected this.
She turned to Mrs.
Chen, “Mom, you saw it too.
It wasn’t for my own good at all.
She just wants to suppress us and make us feel depressed.
If someone tells you something like this in the future, just don't listen to it.”

Chen caught on and directly swiped at Mrs.
Sun's face.
Furious, she uttered, “If anyone speaks ill of my daughter in the future, I will look for you dirty conscience and ill-hearted person first.”

Her scratch wasn’t light.
Blood spilled out from Mrs.
Sun's face.

“You…” Mrs.
Sun didn't expect gentle-looking Mrs.
Chen to attack just like that.

Chen had her eyes on her with clenched teeth.
As if she’ll go all out.
She had lost one daughter.
For this daughter, she can do anything.

Sun was a little frightened by her aura, covered her face, and said nothing.

Chen returned to her stall, pushed the cart, and went home with Jiang Yun Zhu group.

After they had gone a long way, Mrs.
Sun came back to her senses and cursed, “Still want to get married? Just wait and be an old spinster at home!”

Chen didn't hear this sentence.
If she did, she would come back and argue with her.

While Jiang Yun Zhu heard it but didn't care.
It didn't matter whether she married or not as long as she had money.

“Yun Zhu, what do you think of Qing Shan?” On the way back, Mrs.
Chen asked Jiang Yun Zhu.
In fact, this matter had been brewing in her heart.
Only today she had the opportunity to ask Jiang Yun Zhu.

“Mother, you being in such a hurry to marry me off is fulfilling what others want.” Jiang Yun Zhu replied.

After thinking about it, Mrs.
Chen decided not to mention this matter for the time being.
Now that the family was poor, they can't prepare any dowry for Jiang Yun Zhu.
She will still be poor when she gets married.
When their family has money, everything will be different.

Jiang Yun Zhu was right.
Making money was the most important thing now! She thought.

Chen became more driven.
If Mrs.
Sun knew about it, she might be so angry that she would vomit blood.

The next day, Jiang Yun Zhu stewed more of meat.

Before seven a.m., Deputy General Zhao arrived in a hurry with two soldiers.

“Delicious mutton soup.” Seeing him from afar, Mrs.
Sun yelled loudly.

Deputy General Zhao had eyes for the big earthenware pot in front of Jiang Yun Zhu.
He had been thinking about this pot of meat since last night.

Sun was already prepared, “Guest, today is your favorite sheep tongue.
Why don't you come and have some?”

After hearing the words, Deputy General Zhao stopped and looked towards her.

Sun glanced at Jiang Yun Zhu and Mrs.
Chen triumphantly.
Then she picked up a sheep's tongue from the soup pot and showed it to Deputy General Zhao.

It turned out that Mrs.
Sun's stall didn’t only sell mutton soup, but also sheep pluck soup.
Deputy General Zhao loved to eat sheep tongue.
In order to get him to come to her stall every day, she didn't prepare sheep tongue for him every day.
Only every now and then, just to lure him.

Yesterday, Mrs.
Sun flipped face with Jiang Yun Zhu and Mrs.
She made up her mind to get Deputy General Zhao come to her stall today.
So she specially prepared sheep tongue today.

When Mrs.
Chen received her gaze, she was fuming and anxious.
Today they deliberately stewed a jin more of meat.
If Deputy General Zhao trio don't come to eat, it will be a loss! Besides, it was quite annoying.

Jiang Yun Zhu wasn't a anxious though.
She had inquired about Deputy General Zhao from Jiang Cheng when she went back yesterday.
Among the defenders of the mine, there was only one deputy general named Zhao.
He was in charge of the internal and external patrol of the mine.
This man had a straightforward personality and had never been harsh on miners.
So many people knew him.

Jiang Yun Zhu thought, such a person would fulfill the promise he made yesterday.
