Chapter 35

The next day, Jiang Yun Zhu raised the deposit for the lunch box to ten wens.
Otherwise, the people who will order food in the future will have no lunch boxes.
Besides, with her raising the price of the lunch box, Wang De's side can sell better.
She didn't expect to make money from selling lunch boxes.
Since she took payment money from others, she should try to leave the benefits to others.

At the same time, she changed the appearance of the deposit slip.
This way to avoid those who took the lunch box before getting over-refund.

The person who ordered the meal knew that some people took Jiang Ji's lunch box and refused to return it.
No one criticized her behavior of raising the price.
Anyway, it was just a deposit.
Not really wanting their money.

Jiang Cheng resigned from the mine yesterday.
He originally wanted to go to Xu Qing Shan to familiarize himself with the route today.
Who knew that Jiang Yun Zhu suddenly told him last night that they had enough money to buy the donkey?

He was so shocked that he thought she went on a robbery, no, picked up money.

After asking how, he sighed endlessly.

In the past, it was difficult to make a penny.
Now it seems that making money has suddenly become easier.

It seemed that everything started from leaving Changfeng Manor and coming to Wuling County.

Sure enough, listening to Jiang Yun Zhu at the beginning was right.

After sighing, he became excited again.
So, he could go buy a donkey today?

In this day and age, it was almost as difficult for the poor to buy a donkey as it was for ordinary people in modern day to buy a luxury car.
No wonder he was ecstatic.

“En.” Jiang Yun Zhu replied.
Then she took out a money bag and handed it to him.

Now Jiang Yun Zhu was in charge of the family business.
So all the money in the family was in her hands.

Jiang Cheng took the money bag and opened it.
There were two relatively large pieces of silver inside.
One was the one given by Nie Xin, which was worth three liangs.
The other was the one given by Wang De, which was initially worth three liangs.
After Jiang Yun Zhu ordered the lunch box and deducted the money, there were only two liangs or so left.

There were still some small pieces of silver and copper wens left.
The total was estimated to be seven or eight liangs.
It was more than enough to buy a donkey.

Jiang Cheng's hands were trembling while clutching the money bag.
He had never seen so much money before.
At the beginning when he and Mrs.
Chen separated from the family, the most money he ever held was five liangs or so.
At that time, he vowed to give Mrs.
Chen a home and found someone to build a new house.

Five liangs or so wasn’t enough to build a house.

He owed some money to build the frame of the house.
There were no tiles on the roof.
No windows around the house.
Let alone furniture.
In this way, he and Mrs.
Chen still lived in it Slowly, they finished the house, made the furniture, and had Jiang Yun Zhu and the others.

“Family Head, everything will be fine.” When Mrs.
Chen saw so much money just now, her eyes were red.
She knew Jiang Cheng's feelings at this moment, so she spoke out to comfort him.

“En.” Jiang Cheng nodded with a smile.
It will get better.

Jiang Cheng carefully put the silver into his bosom, rubbed it again and again, and then went out to the town.

After more than an hour, he came back.
By his side, was everything else.

Chen was helping Jiang Yun Zhu cut the meat.
From time to time, she would glance at the door and imagine Jiang Cheng coming back with a donkey.

What would the donkey look like? Was it black or gray? Were the ears long? Was the fur shiny?

Seeing that Jiang Cheng came back by himself, she immediately asked anxiously, “Why, didn't you buy a donkey?”

It can be said that Jiang Cheng left with hope and returned with disappointment.
He wanted to buy a donkey that could give rides.
Preferably a mature one, so that it could be used when it was bought.
But such a donkey was rarely sold.

All the donkeys sold in the market were young or old donkeys.
There was only one donkey that looked okay and the asking price was too high.

This money was earned by Jiang Yun Zhu at the stove from morning to night.
Every time Jiang Cheng saw this, he felt very sad.
He didn't want to waste money, so he didn't buy it.

After hearing this, Mrs.
Chen was also disappointed.
But there was no rush for this matter.
They will meet the right one.

Jiang Yun Zhu looked at the sky outside and instead said, “There’s no fish in the river.
Why not go to the county to have a look.”

Then she turned to Mrs.
Chen, “Mother, the weather is getting colder and colder.
We should add some bedding at home.
And you and dad's clothes are too thin.
Why don't we go to the county together and buy more for the winter.”

When Jiang Family came to Changshi Village, Mrs.
Chen only bought fabric and cotton once.
She only made quilts and thick clothes for old Mister Chen and Jiang Yun Zhu and the kids.
She and Jiang Cheng couldn’t bear to make for herself and Jiang Cheng.

Also, Jiang Yun Zhu and the others only have this set of thicker clothes.
She had been thinking about having a big purchase for a while.
It just so happened that today was an opportunity.

Chen's heart was a little moved.
The family had the money.
She didn't want to see her children lack food and clothing.
It was just, “If we go to the county, we mightn’t be able to make dinner in time?”

“Then we won't make it.
Let's tell the customers at noon.
Tonight, we’ll rest and continue to do it tomorrow.” Jiang Yun Zhu stated.

“Will the customers go to another’s?” Mrs.
Chen was worried.

“Don't worry.
Only take a break once in a while.
People can understand as long as it doesn't happen every now and then.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.
After all, which family didn't have a matter to sort.

Chen was still a little scared.
She felt that if they didn't do it at night, they would earn a lot less money.

“You can never run out of money to earn, Mother.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.

“That’s right.
Perfect time to let Yun Zhu rest for a day.” Jiang Cheng piped on the side.

Hearing what he said, how could Mrs.
Chen not agree.

Jiang Yun Zhu laughed.
In fact, she was never the hardest worker in the family.
Before, Jiang Cheng was busy with business with them in the morning and evening and went to work in the mine during the day.
He was the hardest worker.

Later, they stopped making breakfast.
Chen would pick and cut all the vegetables and meat for Jiang Yun Zhu.
Jiang Lin and Jiang Yun Xue would clean the plates and bowls and help her in the kitchen.
She was only responsible for cooking and some things they can't do.
In the end, Mrs.
Chen was busy all day long.
She was the hardest worker.

So in fact, without Mrs.
Chen and others, Jiang Yun Zhu's business wouldn’t be possible.

Within a family, one shouldn't settle it so clearly.
Only by working together can they be better.

Jiang Family was going to visit the county town.
Jiang Wu was the happiest.
This day, he had been running around, wishing he could help everyone finish what they were doing so that they could go to the county quickly.

After delivering the meal at noon, everyone in the Jiang Family except old Mister Chen got onto a donkey cart and went to the county.

Jiang Yun Zhu also wanted old Mister Chen to go.
Old Mister Chen felt that his eyesight was bad and it was useless to go.
Besides, at his age, what had he never seen before? He preferred to stay at home and look after the house.

Jiang Yun Zhu respected his choice, so she stopped persuading him.

Wuling County was rich and prosperous.
There were rows of shops in the county town.
Quite lively.

Thinking about buying a donkey, the Jiang Family held back and went straight to the mule and horse market in the west of the county city.

The mule and horse market in the county was indeed a far cry from the town.
As for the horses, there were no less than dozens of them here.
Four or five in the town was quite good.
There were countless mules, cows, and donkeys.

Jiang Cheng looked left and right.
He was overwhelmed.

Chen was also looking around.
Compared with donkeys, those tall and strong horses were particularly outstanding.
But it was a pity that they couldn't afford them.

She suddenly thought of Yang Sheng and Shen Feng Ming’s horses.
They looked much better than the horses here.

The couple were fascinated by the sight.
So Jiang Yun Zhu held onto Jiang Wu and told Jiang Lin and Jiang Yun Xue to follow her and not to run around.
There were so many people in the market.
If they were scattered, it will be bad.

She wasn't interested in these horses and donkeys.
She only planned what to buy when going shopping later.

At this time, Jiang Cheng took a fancy to a donkey.
Its black fur was shiny and smooth.
He opened its mouth to look at its teeth.
It was two years old.
It was in the prime of its life.
Looking at the hooves and tail, there was no flaw at all.

He was happy and started chatting with the donkey seller.

After talking for about a quarter of an hour, Jiang Cheng's face was serious.
The donkey seller was an old man.
He said his donkey was good and wouldn’t budge from seven liang silver.

Jiang Cheng naturally knew that his donkey was good, but seven liang silver was too expensive.
If he added some more, he could buy a mule.
Mules were stronger than donkeys and could run.

Chen tugged Jiang Cheng's sleeve.
How about looking elsewhere? She also felt that the price was too expensive.

Jiang Cheng looked at the donkey with reluctance and walked forward.

The couple continued to check the donkeys.
At this moment, a female voice suddenly sounded, “Elder Sister-in-law Chen, is that you? Elder Sister-in-law Chen?”

At first, Mrs.
Chen didn't think that someone was calling her.
But when the person grabbed her sleeve, she turned around and uttered in surprise, “It's you?”

On the other side stood a woman with soft eyebrows and a body like a spring willow.
She was holding a child about four or five years old in her arms.
He was forty-fifty percent similar in appearance to her.

It was Mrs.
Liu from the same village as them in Changfeng Manor.
At that time, Jiang Yun Zhu's family left the village in a hurry and happened to encounter her coming out to fetch water.
Chen kindly reminded her.
Never expected to meet her here again today.

Meeting old acquaintances in a foreign land, Mrs.
Chen and Mrs.
Liu were indescribably happy.

“How did you get here?” Mrs.
Chen remembered that she borrowed food from everyone in the village but failed to borrow food.
Only Mrs.
Liu lent her food.
She was very friendly toward Mrs.

Liu was also grateful for Mrs.
Chen's kindness in reminding her.
She held nothing back from her.
It turned out that after hearing Mrs.
Chen's words that day, she also had the idea of leaving Changfeng Manor.

Her husband was dead and she had no relatives there.
So leaving was nothing.

But where to? She didn't know, so she decided to go south first.

She had it better than Jiang Yun Zhu and the others.
She had money.
So she packed up her things, took her child, and hired a donkey cart to come to Lu Prefecture.

About 20 days ago, she was passing through Wuling County when an old lady suddenly rushed out from the street and hit the cart she was sitting in.

She and the driver were all terrified.

The driver said it was none of his business.
The old lady bumped over by herself.

The old lady just cried in pain.

She got out of the cart and was at a loss.

At this time, a person stepped forward and asked them what happened.

After they finished speaking, the man directly called the doctor to give the old lady a diagnosis and treatment.
The old lady was fine.
The turmoil passed just like that.

“Who is that man? He is really a good man.” Mrs.
Chen was amazed.

Liu was about to say something when a male voice asked, “Who are these?”

A man walked over leading a mule.
He was wearing a lake blue robe, with fair skin and regular features.
Not to mention looking very handsome, he was quite attractive.

“This is Mrs.
Chen's family from my hometown that I told you before.” Mrs.
Liu immediately replied to the man and then introduced both parties.

The man's name was Wei Kang Ping.
He was the one who helped Mrs.
Liu uphold justice that day.
Seeing that Mrs.
Liu had nowhere to go, he let her live in an unused yard of his.
Paying the rent or not was up to her.

It turned out to be him.
Chen looked at Wei Kang Ping and then at Mrs.
Liu, who was standing very close to him.
Then she seemed to have guessed something.

It had been two years since Mrs.
Liu lost her husband.
It would be great if the widow and orphan could find a suitable person to take care of them.

“Elder Sister-in-law Chen, how did you get here?” Sensing the look in Mrs.
Chen's eyes, Mrs.
Liu quickly changed the topic.

Chen told them about their refuge in Wuling County.

Hearing that Mrs.
Chen came to the county today to buy a donkey, Mrs.
Liu was very surprised.
She remembered that the Jiang Family had a hard time and couldn't even eat enough.
In the end, they had to sell their daughter to live.
They got money to buy a donkey?

This was quite a coincidence.
She looked at Wei Kang Ping.

Wei Kang Ping’s eyes spun and told Jiang Cheng, “Eldest Brother Jiang, I happen to have a mule for sale here.
If you think it suits you, take it away.”

Jiang Cheng had noticed the mule he was leading a long time ago.
The big maroon mule wasn't much worse than a horse.
He hurriedly responded, “No need.”

He was afraid that he would not be able to afford it.

“You have helped Qiu Niang before.
The price is easy to negotiate.” Wei Kang Ping said.

Qiu Niang was Mrs.
Liu's name.

Jiang Cheng wanted to decline, but Wei Kang Ping directly stated, “Nine liang silver.
If you think it’s worth it, I'll sell it to you.”

Nine liang silver was really cheap.
Jiang Cheng had eight liang silver in his purse.
Jiang Yun Zhu had a lot of things to buy today, so she brought a little more.
It was just enough to buy this mule.

Jiang Cheng hesitated for a moment.

Liu saw that Jiang Cheng wanted it and looked at Wei Kang Ping again.

Wei Kang Ping directly put the rein in Jiang Cheng's hand and said with a smile, “Then it’s settled.
It won't save me from going everywhere to sell it.”

“I can’t really.” Jiang Cheng wanted to return the reins to him.

Wei Kang Ping didn't accept.

The two pushed and pulled for a while.
Wei Kang Ping was determined to sell the mule to Jiang Cheng.
In the end Jiang Cheng could only hold the reins in his hand.

After paying, Jiang Cheng looked at Jiang Yun Zhu.

Jiang Yun Zhu took out a liang silver from her sleeve and handed it to Jiang Cheng.
Jiang Cheng took out the money bag from his bosom, put the liang silver in it, handed the money bag to Wei Kang Ping, and said embarrassingly, “Count it.

Wei Kang Ping weighed the wallet, “What is there to count.
I believe in you.”

Coming out of the mule and horse market, Mrs.
Chen still couldn't believe it.
It felt like a dream.
She met Mrs.
Liu here by chance and bought a big mule for only nine liang silver.

“This mule is only two years old.
It’s at the age of youth and strength.” Jiang Cheng couldn't help but excitedly remarked.
While talking, he touched the mule's head with his hand and couldn't get enough of feeling it.

“Have to thank Qiu Niang.” Mrs.
Chen said.
Without her, they wouldn't be able to buy such a cheap mule.

“En.” Jiang Cheng nodded, “Come to the county some other day and bring her more things.”

Chen and Mrs.
Liu had already made an appointment.
They will often interact in the future.
This was why Jiang Cheng said this.

Chen nodded and suddenly smiled again, “She met a good person this time.”

From what she saw that Wei Kang Ping seemed to have some family background.
He was good-looking and could save people from danger.
His character shouldn’t be bad.

Jiang Cheng nodded.
He also thought Wei Kang Ping was a good guy.

Behind, Jiang Yun Zhu held Jiang Wu.
Hearing what they said, she frowned slightly.
Why did she feel that Wei Kang Ping's eyes turned toward her intentionally or unintentionally just now? Was it her imagination, or…

“Yun Zhu, are we still shopping?” Mrs.
Chen turned around and asked Jiang Yun Zhu.
Her tone was full of apology.

After buying this mule, they didn't have much money left.
She knew that Jiang Yun Zhu wanted to buy a lot of things.

Putting aside other things, Jiang Yun Zhu was delighted to be able to buy a mule so cheaply.
As for things, buy some first and buy the rest next time.

The family wandered around the county town.

The sun was in the west.
Afraid that they wouldn’t be able to go home in time, they immediately left the city and returned home.

After arriving home, old Mister Chen was very happy when he heard that they bought a good mule for nine liang silver.

Jiang Cheng supported him to see the mule.

Old Mister Chen stretched out his hand to touch the mule's head and then touched down.
The more he touched it, the happier he became.
He praised, “This is really a good mule.”

“That's right.” Jiang Cheng couldn't help being overjoyed.
He busied himself on getting food and drink for the mule, for fear that it would be thirsty and hungry.

Jiang Family kept grinning that night.

Shen Manor in the capital.
It was already 7pm.
Shen Feng Ming just came back from outside.
His whole body was cold.

“Why did you come back so late today?” Princess Danyang handed him a bowl of ginseng tea and said distressingly.

Shen Feng Ming accepted the tea and drank a couple of sips.

“The Division has a lot of things to do.” He replied.

“Why don't I talk to the Emperor and ask him to change your errand for you.” Princess Danyang said.
She didn't want Shen Feng Ming to be the commander.
Not to mention the danger, nothing good would come from it.

“Mother, I like this job.” Shen Feng Ming stated.

Princess Danyang wanted to say something, but suddenly she uttered instead, “Okay, then I don't intervene.
Have you eaten yet?”

“I have.”

“Then go back and wash up quickly.
Rest early.” Princess Danyang said.

Shen Feng Ming nodded.

In the spacious bathroom, someone had prepared hot water for Shen Feng Ming.

He didn't need others to serve him.
After washing himself, he entered the bedroom.

As soon as he entered the door, he felt something was amiss.
He knew exactly how exactly his own room smelled.
But now in this room, there was a faint sweet smell.

“Who?” He frowned.
His voice was cold.

On the couch, the brocade quilt squirmed, evoking a seductive arc.
A beautiful and stunning face was exposed from the brocade quilt.
A white snow shoulder could be seen faintly.

This kind of barely visible beauty was really alluring.

Shen Feng Ming only felt hot all over.
Not right.
He held onto the table next to him with his hand.
His body wasn't right.

Suddenly, he remembered the cup of ginseng tea that Princess Danyang had just handed him.

As the commander of the Qilin Guard, Shen Feng Ming's caution was enough for him to avoid all dangers.
But what about the tea his biological mother handed him?

Shen Feng Ming tightly grasped the edge of the table with both hands.
The veins on his hands were bulging.

“Gentleman.” Knowing that the medicine was working, Du Ran Shu stood up and walked toward Shen Feng Ming.

She was only wearing a tulle dress.
As she walked, every look and every movement was enough to drive any man crazy.

Finally, she reached Shen Feng Ming.

She reached out to touch Shen Feng Ming.
Her face flushed.
Who said that only women can make men’s hearts move.
Outstanding men can also make women's hearts sway.

The next moment, she opened her eyes wide in horror.

Shen Feng Ming pinched Du Ran Shu's neck like an angry god.

Two bangs sounded.
Princess Danyang heard that the movement in the room wasn’t right.
She quickly opened the door and went in to check.
Entering her sight was Du Ran Shu sitting on the ground at one side, looking like a mess, and Shen Feng Ming standing with blood dripping from his left hand.

He held the corner of the table in his hand.
He had actually broken off the corner of the table directly.
The wooden thorn pierced his hand, causing him to bleed.

Princess Danyang only had Shen Feng Ming's bleeding hand in her eyes.
She immediately shouted, “Quick, call the doctor.”

“No need.” Shen Feng Ming threw away the thing in his hands and staggered toward the bathroom next to him.

“Feng Ming, you…” Princess Danyang wanted to say something, but she was intimidated by Shen Feng Ming's return gaze.
She had never seen him look like this.

She stopped talking.

“What's going on?” Academician Shen heard the noise and came over to check.

He immediately noticed that something was wrong with Shen Feng Ming's behavior and then looked at Du Ran Shu, who was disheveled at the side.
In an instant, he made a good guess and furiously threw at Princess Danyang, “How could you do this? Hhe…”

He just said a sentence and Princess Danyang cried and yelled at him as if she had found an outlet, “Why did I do this? What right do you have to ask me? You talk about benevolence and morality all day long.
You taught the child to be like this.
Now you blame me.

I ask you……”

Princess Danyang quarreled with Academician Shen again.

Shen Feng Ming had already returned to the bathroom and jumped into the cold water.
He slowly regained his senses.

Early the next morning, Yang Sheng took a case file and said to Shen Feng Ming, “Look at this Lu Prefecture case.
Should we go…”

“Okay.” Shen Feng Ming replied.

Yang Sheng was dumbfounded.
He hadn't said what the case was yet? He agreed to what?
