Queen of flowers - chapter 179
Xu Taiyi examined the buckets of water carefully and found no problem.
Yong Ruo also pretended to walk around, walked to the buckets of water, and let the system scan it. The water was clear and there was no problem.Most of the things in the village were taken away or destroyed.
But looking around the village, one could still find a few complete pieces of furniture.
Hua Rou took the eunuch and used the kitchen utensils gathered together to make a few simple but delicious side dishes.
Feng Liao and Yong Ruo ate a sumptuous dinner.
After supper, Hua Rou served them tea.
Feng Liao and Yong Ruo sat in the courtyard to enjoy tea while watching the moon and the stars.
“The moon is so round tonight!”
Yong Ruo leaned on Feng Liao’s shoulder, “The stars are also very bright.”
Feng Liao whispered, “Today is the Ghost (Zhongyuan) Festival!”
With a slight sigh, he said, “It is less than a month from your birthday. I wonder if we can rush back to Beijing before your birthday.”
“It doesn’t matter if we can’t go back! It’s a very rare experience to spend my birthday outside.”
“If we have to celebrate it outside, we have to inevitably be frugal. This is your first birthday after we get married. I will feel uncomfortable if everything is frugal.”
While the two were chatting, the eunuch who guarded the door came in and reported that Ah Lan asked to see him.
“Is there anything wrong with her?” Feng Liao asked casually.
The corner of Yong Ruo’s mouth twitched. Was Ah Lan finally going to act?
“Ah Lan said it was all thanks to Wang Ye and Furen that she was able to transport her mother back to the ancestral grave.”
“Did she have something to ask?” Feng Liao frowned, turned his head to ask Yong Ruo, “What do you think she wants? Does she want to go back to Beijing with us and be a maid?”
Yong Ruo smiled, “Maybe, maybe not. If you want to know, why not call her and listen? I’m bored!”
Feng Liao said irrevocably, “Let her in.”
Su Mingjian approached Feng Liao and stood beside him, staring at Ah Lan who was going in with the eunuch.
Ah Lan had washed and changed into clean clothes. She looked much refreshed.
When Yong Ruo’s gaze swept across Ah Lan, she noticed that a bamboo flute was added to her waist.
Bamboo flute … Yong Ruo laughed softly in her heart. The sound of the bamboo flute was very penetrating, and it was very suitable for transmitting messages.
Ah Lan knelt down and bowed her head a few steps away from Feng Liao and Yong Ruo, and thanked them.
Feng Liao waved his hands lightly, “You don’t need to thank us. What do you want to ask? Let’s talk!”
Ah Lan nodded and begged, “The folk girl heard that Wang Ye will take the guards to chase the bandits, and wanted to ask for Wang Ye’s permission to let the girl follow.”
“Why do you want to?”
“Because of those who were ensnared by rogues, there were people who watched the girl grow up, and village neighbors who have grown up with the girl.” Ah Lan said with tears, “If I follow, I may be able to persuade a few people to do the internal response and help Wang Ye to destroy them.”
This reason was very convincing.
Feng Liao thought for a while, but shook his head, then said very flatly, “Destroying the bandits is a matter of the North, and we don’t need a woman to take this kind of risk. Tomorrow, you will go to Xiushan County to find your uncle! We got to know each other, so we decided to give you a little dowry!”
He beckoned to Xiao Guizi, and Xiao Guizi gave Ah Lan a few golden leaves.
Xiao Guizi counted six gold leaves and handed them to Ah Lan. About one or two and a half of gold, about seventeen or eighty two pieces of silver, were put into Ah Lan’s hands.
That could be said to be a very decent dowry for ordinary people.
In addition, Feng Liao gave gold leaves, which were very convenient to carry and collect. If things didn’t go well for Ah Lan, she could rely on these golden leaves to find another way.
