Queen of flowers - Chapter 2
‘Would you like to earn that rich Young master’s money?’ Yong Ruo quickly thought about that as Zhou’s bed flashed in her brain, the empty rice tank, the empty kitchen at home, and she promptly decided to try her luck!!
She hurried forward, stopping a few steps in front of the nobleman, and when all four of the nobleman’s Young master and servant looked at her, she said, “Young master, my blessing! Several gentlemen, my blessing!”
The nobleman looked at her with a cold stare and said nothing.
The scholar around the Young master asked her harshly, “What are you doing?”
Yong Ruo, ‘Pompous rich!’
Then she picked out the better plum blossom from the lotus root, looked down, and respectfully held the flower with both hands. In a pleasant tone, she said, “Today’s lantern Festival, the little girl is fortunate to be able to see the Young master’s demeanor. This is a blessing that has been cultivated in previous lives. Although this little girl is only a flower girl, she has also heard the allusions of the fruit-throwing carriage. Only that this little girl does not have fruits, so she dedicates this flower to the Young master and wishes all good luck and longevity! “
The fruit throwing carriage was an allusion made for the famous beautiful man Pan An. He was too handsome. As he drove down the street, the women who admired him offered and picked fruits for him. Every time Pan An returned home, he was able to return with a full load of fruits. This was what became a fruit-throwing carriage.
She said this allusion and presented flowers, a little frivolous, but it will undoubtedly attract the attention of the nobleman and impress him!
“Ah …” The scholar chuckled softly, “You, a flower girl, speak elegantly. Have you read a book?” There was a faint smile in his voice.
Yong Ruo still looked down, politely holding the flowers, and pirated Sister Lin’s words, “I haven’t read one, I know a few words!”
The scholar smiled lowly, “My Young master … is he better than Pan An?”
Yong Ruo’s posture remained the same, but she said in a definite tone, “This is the word of a young woman’s heart.”
“Since my Young master is so good-looking, why do you keep your head down and not pay more attention to him?” The man’s smile was even stronger.
“A single sight is due to blessings that have been cultivated in previous lives. I won’t be greedy enough.” She didn’t want to stare and make his Young master angry.
The scholar laughed in a low voice, and then said, “You make a living by selling flowers, but now you want to offer them, won’t you lose money?”
“I won’t hide it, sir. This flower was cut from a plum tree in the corner of the courtyard of this little girl’s house. It required only a few years of fortune, a little sunshine and dew, plus a little hard work of this little girl. The first two costs are the virtue of Emperor Tian’s thick soil; the latter cost this little woman is willing to lose money for the Young master! “
“You can speak!” The scholar reached out to take the flower from Yong Ruo’s hand and smiled, “I have accepted this plum blossom on behalf of my Young master! Thank you!”
Yong Ruo bowed again, and did not look up, “Thank you, Mister! This little girl will retire.”
Taking three steps she turned around and left without looking back again.
As she walked, she counted in her heart.
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven…
While counting to seven, she suddenly heard a clear voice behind her, “Stop!”
Yong Ruo was so happy, she stopped. When she turned around, she saw the Young master waving to her. She went back and asked very politely, “What did the Young master want?”
The nobleman extended his hand to the scholar without turning his head and commanded, “Bring five silver!” To Yong Ruo, he said, “Although you are willing to lose hard-earned money, I do not want anything from you.”
Yong Ruo replied, “I sell plum blossoms for less than 10 pennies. This is a lot of silver coins! This little girl doesn’t have enough change.” But she chirped in her heart, ‘Obviously, he is a nobleman and a generous one.’ Silver! She hadn’t touched a silver after she came through! ‘Would this man not ask me for change? !!’
The Young master said, “No need for it. I will reward you!” He took a five silver ingot from the scholar, held it with four fingers, pointed down, and handed it to Yong Ruo.
“Yes!” Yong Ruo. “Ah, this little girl is ashamed! Thank you, Young master!” With her head lowered, her hands facing forward, her palms spread out flat, she intended to accept the silver—this posture was very respectful.
Gui Gongzi held the silver ingot and slowly handed it over Yong Ruo’s hands, only about an inch from her palm. As soon as he loosened his grip, the silver fell into Yong Ruo’s palm.
But all of a sudden, the Young master lifted his hand, and the silver ingot flew to the side. After drawing a round parabolic trajectory, it fell into the Taiye lake next to him.
Yong Ruo was dumbfounded!
“Oh! Why don’t you pick it up?” said the prince, pretending to be surprised, but full of joy and gloating, “That’s five ounces of silver!”
Yong Ruo nodded, staring at the ripples of silver ingot splashing into the water, her heartache was unbearable. That’s right! That’s five silver ingots! That was a huge sum! She didn’t expect the man to be so extravagant!
At that time, the price of silver was very high, and one or two silvers can be exchanged for more than 1,300 copper coins! A common man would use one or two silver for a year!
For her, even counting the medical expenses of Zhou’s last week, the five silver ingots can guarantee the family’s expenses for months! But it just fell into the water! “Her luck,” fell into the Taiye…
Yong Ruo’s heart was hurting! After a while, she turned back and asked the Young master, “Did the Young master really give this little girl five silver ingots?”
The Young master smirked, but tried to make a sincere expression, “I really did want to reward you! Oh, unfortunately! Maybe … you have no destiny with money in your life!”
Yong Ruo smiled, “How can it sink into the bottom of the lake without seeing the sun?”
She took off the basket and placed it on the lake’s bank, and then took off the waist support and began to undress.
Guigui’s face changed, and he asked, “What are you going to do ?!” His three followers converged with a smile at the hilarious scene.
Yong Ruo took off the quilted cotton pants and put them in the quilted jacket, wrapped it. She took off the worn-out cloth shoes on edge, and said, “I’ll go and get the silvers!”
This wasn’t beyond her control. She was a winter swim enthusiast in her previous life, and swimming in the water in winter was a common occurrence. Although she lacked exercise in this life, she had a back-up and didn’t have the risk of physical exhaustion and drowning in the water. What reason was she not going to risk for? !! Perhaps that bitter plan can impress the Young master and get more.
I want to eat meat! I want to eat white rice! I really miss … a lot of things!
