Jiang Yun Zhu was indeed very tired.
She didn't go to bed until after eleven o'clock last night and got up at three o'clock this morning.
She had been busy until now.
Even though she knew that Shen Feng Ming was at the side and had reminded herself to be more vigilant, she still fell asleep involuntarily when she really sat on the stool.

Her breath steadied.
Her slender eyelashes drooped.
Her red lips were slightly opened.
Calm and serene.

Shen Feng Ming's gaze quickly swept across her lips and landed on the white paper in front of him.

It was a sweet sleep.

“Zhu Qin You Xu, He Lu Shi Zhang.” Jiang Lin and the others recited.
Jiang Yun Zhu's eyelashes trembled and she sat up straight.

“Kong Cao Yan Hua, Jin Wei Tao Jiang.”

Jiang Yun Zhu understood that Shen Feng Ming was teaching them Hundred Family Surname.
He was thoughtful.
To keep accounts, the first thing was to know numbers and the second was to be able to write names.

She snuck a glance at him.
He didn't notice that she was sleeping, did he?

Shen Feng Ming's face remained the same.
From her angle, she could see his profile as if drawn with a brush.
Graceful and tough lines.
A pair of eyes like cold stars, deep and bright.

Probably wasn't caught.
She breathed a sigh of relief and looked at others.

Jiang Lin studied very seriously and seemed to be concentrating on it.
So did Jiang Yun Xue with some excitement.
This girl who was always well-behaved and cowardly at ordinary times seemed to be a different person at this time.
There seemed to be fire in her eyes.

Jiang Wu, Jiang Wu's little head was bouncing back and forth.
Jiang Yun Zhu shook his head.

Then she met Yang Sheng’s playful gaze.

Jiang Yun Zhu was slightly taken aback.
What did he mean?

“Okay, that's all for today.” Shen Feng Ming said at this time.

“Gentleman, we have trouble you.
Come, drink some water.” Mrs.
Chen had been keeping an ear to the movement in the room.
When she heard that it was over, she quickly brought the prepared tea to Shen Feng Ming.
Shen Feng Ming taught Jiang Yun Zhu and others how to read.
The gratitude and thankfulness in every way in her heart was all in this tea.

The tea leaves were of poor quality, but Shen Feng Ming didn't seem to notice.
He accepted the tea bowl and took a sip.

Yang Sheng leaned over to Jiang Yun Zhu's side and asked in a low voice, “Can you teach me your skills?” Maybe he can still use them in the future.

“What ability?” Jiang Yun Zhu didn't understand.

Yang Sheng laughed, “It's just the ability to sleep with eyes open!”

Sleeping with eyes open? Did she? At most, she was sleeping with her eyes squinted.
Wait, he knew she was sleeping? Jiang Yun Zhu stared at Yang Sheng.

Yang Sheng's expression said it all.

Jiang Yun Zhu wanted to cover her face with her hands.
Suddenly it came to her.
Wait, since Yang Sheng found out that she was asleep, Shen Feng Ming…

She looked toward Shen Feng Ming and met his dark eyes.

Sure enough, he found out.
Jiang Yun Zhu quickly retrieved her gaze and lowered her head.
She swore, she really didn't mean to.

“Tell me, how…” Yang Sheng continued to ask.

“Let's go!” Shen Feng Ming put down his tea and stood up.

“What?” A little confused, Yang Sheng asked.

“Do important things.” As Shen Feng Ming said, he had already walked out.

Yang Sheng understood what he meant.
His expression drooped.
Wasn't what he was doing right now important?

Before leaving, Shen Feng Ming turned his head and looked at him.
It was exactly this meaning in his eyes.

“At least wait for me…” Wait until he learns Jiang Yun Zhu's skills!

Shen Feng Ming didn't speak, just looked at him like that.

“Alright, why is my life so hard?” Yang Sheng howled dryly and followed Shen Feng Ming.

“Are they going to go out to collect food?” Mrs.
Chen watched the backs of the two and asked, “Aren’t they waiting for the buddies to come?”

Jiang Yun Zhu frowned and remained silent.

In the evening, Shen Feng Ming and Yang Sheng came back.
Shen Feng Ming took out a map and marked something.
While Yang Sheng lay paralyzed on the bed, not wanting to move.

Jiang Yun Zhu had already prepared meals for them.
This afternoon, she bought a chicken for them.
Perfect to use one chicken for three dishes.
The chicken breast was used to make Kung Pao Chicken.
Shred chicken thigh and make a cold salad with carrots and cabbage.

Originally, this dish should use shredded cucumbers, but there were no more cucumbers this season.
She tested thin shred tender cabbage instead.
It was also very refreshing.

Lastly, chicken ribs were used for soup.
Then served it with two plates of pancakes.
It was about enough for Yang Sheng and Shen Feng Ming to eat.

Sure enough, when Yang Sheng saw this dinner, he regained his energy.
He was so focused on the meal that he forgot to learn from Jiang Yun Zhu.

Jiang Yun Zhu withdrew.

When Jiang Cheng came back in the evening, he was very grateful when he heard that the businessman who was staying there had actually taught the few children how to read.
He had thought about getting the children to recognize words before but ten liang silver was needed every year as emolument to send a child into a private school.
To him, this was like a far away dream.
A dream that couldn’t be realized at all.

Now the dream had come true?

“You must study hard and don't make him angry.” He instructed Jiang Lin and the others, especially Jiang Wu as he was young.
He was afraid that he wouldn’t understand these things.

Jiang Wu nodded timidly.
When he was learning words in the afternoon, he seemed to have fallen asleep.
That big brother wasn't angry, was he?

The more he thought about it, the more guilty he felt.
He decided to study hard tomorrow.

Jiang Cheng didn't tell Jiang Yun Zhu as he thought she was very sensible.
There was no need for him to say these things.

Jiang Yun Zhu stood there.
Alright, she knew she was wrong and shouldn't be sleeping.
Even if she knew those characters, it would be good to learn calligraphy from Shen Feng Ming.

This was a rare opportunity.
His calligraphy was praised by Cabinet Elder Chang.

After reminding, Jiang Cheng took a few children to the side room to thank Shen Feng Ming.

“Two Gentlemen, we truly caused you trouble.
The children are not sensible.
If they do something wrong, you can punish them.
No need to be reserved.” Jiang Cheng said sincerely.

In ancient times, it was emphasized that strict teachers produce excellent students and dutiful sons were produced under the stick.
When a teacher punished a student, the parents wouldn’t say a word.
Sometimes the teacher even punished the parents as well.
No one would find it wrong.

On the contrary, if the teacher didn’t punish the students, the parents would be dissatisfied and felt they weren’t putting in effort into teaching.

Yang Sheng was often punished when he was studying before.
Now hearing him say that, his expression was weird.

“We may not be able to stay here for too long.” Shen Feng Ming said.

Jiang Cheng understood, but was still very grateful to him.

Afraid of disturbing Shen Feng Ming's rest, he took Jiang Yun Zhu and others away after a few more words of gratitude.

After they left, Yang Sheng drank tea and asked Shen Feng Ming, “Miss Jiang was sleeping in the afternoon, why didn't you punish her?”

“How to punish?” Shen Feng Ming asked.

“This…” Did he need to ask him? Yang Sheng almost spit out the tea in his mouth.
How to punish? Of course…Suddenly, he felt something amiss.
He looked at Shen Feng Ming and met his eyes.

His eyes were as cold as a cold pool.

Yang Sheng shuddered and smiled awkwardly, “Our Qilin Guards made mistakes before, didn't you punish them all?”

“They are just ordinary people.” Shen Feng Ming replied.

“Then it’s right for the teacher to punish the students.”

“I'm not her teacher.” Just taught her for a few days.

Yang Sheng gave up.
He shouldn't argue with him about this matter.

“I was wrong.
Alright, I was wrong.” He surrendered.

Jiang Cheng and the others went back to have dinner before getting busy again.
Knead noodles, chop vegetables, and prepare for making spicy soup and youmotou tomorrow morning.

This lasted until 9p.m.

Lying on the bed, Yang Sheng listened to the outside busy movements in the kitchen.
He remarked to Shen Feng Ming, “It's really hard work for them!”

Much harder than their Qilin Guards.
Especially Jiang Yun Zhu, who was busy all day long.

He suddenly understood why Jiang Yun Zhu fell asleep in the afternoon and regretted it.
He regretted that he shouldn’t have pursued her on her sleeping matter and made fun of Shen Feng Ming about it at night.

“En.” Shen Feng Ming indifferently responded, without any fluctuation of emotions.

Yang Sheng sighed, talking to him was better than a stone.

Hard work? If someone asked Jiang Yun Zhu this question, she would answer ‘it is’.
But as long as they get through this period and wait for the takeaway business to start up, they stop making breakfast.
It will be much better.

So the future was bright.
Jiang Yun Zhu didn't find it hard anymore.

The next morning they went to set up a stall as usual.
Today they made meat pancakes.
Those who wanted to eat meat pancakes saw they could finally have them today and hurriedly bought one to eat.
There were also those who were afraid that they will be gone tomorrow.
Those initially who didn’t want to buy or wanted to buy one immediately decided to buy one or two.

Therefore, today’s meat pancakes sold well.

“Yun Zhu, how did you come up with this idea?” Mrs.
Chen admired.
The idea of selling meat pancakes every two days was really amazing.
A meat pancake cost six wens.
Selling one was worth two bowls of hulatang.
She obviously felt that the money collected in the money jar today was a lot more.

Jiang Yun Zhu smiled.
This was all small money.

After a while, a big customer came.

It was the long-faced soldier following Deputy General Zhao.
He jogged over with the food box in his hand, handed the food box to Jiang Yun Zhu, and asked, “Boss, did you make congee or meat pancakes today?”

“Meat pancakes.” Jiang Yun Zhu took the food box and responded.

“I want thirty meat pancakes and eight bowls of soup.
Please pack them for me.
I'll carry them to the mountain.” The long-faced soldier said.

This much? Jiang Yun Zhu had already made more meat pancakes today, but it was still not enough!

“How many are there? I want them all.”

Jiang Yun Zhu counted, “There are still nineteen more.”

Short by a third.
The long-faced soldier sighed.
He had already arrived early.
Unexpectedly he was still late.

“Alright, give it all to me.
As for the rest, give me another forty youmotou.” The long-faced soldier pondered for a while.

This was obviously a meal for seven or eight people.
There were probably new customers.
Jiang Yun Zhu mentally realized.
She got Mrs.
Chen to scoop the soup, while she went to prepare meat pancakes and youmotou.

“By the way, I have to make an order with you for lunch.
Make meat pancakes first.
I'll tell you when you’re done.” The long-faced soldier continued.

Jiang Yun Zhu's heart moved slightly.
She casually asked him, “What's the matter? You seem to be in a hurry.”

The long-faced soldier wanted to complain.
He looked around and saw that there was no one around.
He lowered his voice and told Jiang Yun Zhu, “It's nothing.
It’s just General Wang.
Don't know what's going on with him.
He insists on people searching all over the mountain and arresting suspicious people.

This had everyone busy!”

Reaching this point, he snorted, “There are no suspicious people.
With this many of us guard here, who dares to make trouble.
Isn't it tired of living?”

After Jiang Yun Zhu heard this, her meat-cutting hand paused.
The suspicious person must be those two in her home!

She didn't ask any more questions and finished making all the meat pancakes.

Over the side, Mrs.
Chen had finished scooping the soup.

The soup was put into the food box.
The meat pancakes were put back into the basket after it was cooked.
Still covered by a small quilt, it was handed to the long-faced soldier.

“It isn't easy for you to hold it.
Jiang Lin, you follow to help.” Mrs.
Chen called Jiang Lin with a smile.

“Okay.” Jiang Lin responded, accepted the meat pancakes in the basket.

Since they were so caring, the long-faced soldier grinned, “Don't rush to work yet.
I have to tell you about lunch.
Oh right, how much is the meat pancake and soup?”

“Nineteen meat pancakes, one hundred and fourteen coins.
Eight bowls of soup and forty youmotou, twenty-four coins.
A total of one hundred and thirty-eight wens.” Jiang Yun Zhu answered.

The long-faced soldier paid the money.
Then he took out a note and a piece of silver and handed it to Jiang Yun Zhu, “On it, there are a few dishes as well as one bowl of yesterday’s boiled meat.
The rest is up to you.
Enough for eight people is good.

Take this money first.
When the food is delivered, give change if there’s more or charge if we’re under.

It turned out that the five soldiers ate Deputy General Zhao trio’s dishes yesterday and thought it was delicious.
However, none of them could get enough as eight of them ate three dishes.
The five people felt very guilty and stated that they would pay for a table of food today and treat Deputy General Zhao trio to eat.

They didn't know Jiang Yun Zhu, so they got this long-faced soldier to run errands and bring breakfast on the way.

Jiang Yun Zhu weighed the silver.
It was more than half a liang.
Then she looked at the note.
There were five dishes.
Namely pig elbow, sautéed pork balls with brown sauce, braised pork, sweet and sour pork tenderloin, sautéed pig kidney, plus a bowl of boiled meat.
All right, it was all meat.

Enough food for eight people and the money was definitely enough.
Jiang Yun Zhu had already figured out what to do after seeing it.

After sending away the long-faced soldier, Jiang Yun Zhu continued to sell soup.
Later there were some people who wanted to buy meat pancakes, but were very regretful when they heard that it was sold out.

Because of long-faced soldier’s big business, Jiang Family's food for today had been sold out before 7a.m..

They packed up their things and prepared to go back.

At this time, a person came over on a donkey cart.
It was Xu Qing Shan.

“The stall closed so early today?” He was surprised and hurried over to help tidy up.

“I have a big customer today who bought a lot.” Mrs.
Chen cheerfully answered.
Then she felt a little annoyed, “You haven't had breakfast yet.
Oh, I should have saved a bowl for you.”

“No need, Auntie.
Sell it if you can.
I'll just eat something when I get home.” Xu Qing Shan hurriedly said.

Everyone cleaned up together and soon finished tidying.
Xu Qing Shan moved the things to his donkey cart.

“We can’t really.” Mrs.
Chen said while halting.

“Auntie, I’m going back.
It’s on the way.”

Chen let go and looked at Jiang Yun Zhu who was busy at the side.
She understood!

Although Jiang Yun Zhu didn't see it, she heard the conversation between Mrs.
Chen and Xu Qing Shan.
She frowned slightly.
She didn't want to trouble Xu Qing Shan too much.

Everyone returned in a donkey cart and arrived at Changshi Village in a short while.

“Auntie, are you still going to town today? I'll go to town to buy some tobacco leaves for my father later.” At the door of Jiang's house, Xu Qing Shan asked while helping Mrs.
Chen with the unloading.
His meaning was that if Mrs.
Chen and Jiang Yun Zhu were going to the town, they could ride in his donkey cart.

Jiang Yun Zhu was going to the town.
Chen grinned.

It would be strange if Jiang Yun Zhu couldn't detect any abnormality at this time.
Xu Qing Shan went to town yesterday.
Today? He must be giving her a ride on purpose.

She had somewhat sensed Xu Qing Shan's intentions, but she never brought it up.
She couldn't bring it up herself.

Better find a chance to explain clearly to him.
Immediately, she must refuse.

But how should she refuse? She certainly needed to go to town.

Just then, a male voice sounded out, “Miss Jiang, are you going to town? How about we take you?”

Looking up, she saw Yang Sheng and Shen Feng Ming on two horses, strolling over front the side.
