Queen of flowers - Chapter 4
Swimming to the shore, Yong Ruo wetly climbed up to the shore, rolled over the railings, and stood barefoot on the shore of the lake.
It was very inappropriate for girls to show their feet to anyone. However, for girls from the most impoverished class, it was not uncommon to wear no shoes. They don’t know how many people walk around barefooted, and no one cared if their feet were seen. This was the honor of shame!
“Thank you, Young master, for your great reward! This little girl is grateful!” Yong Ruo wore a single wet coat, dripping her hair, held the silver ingot firmly, and bowed to the Young master.
At this time, the simple “makeup” on her face, made out of the mud, and the ash had been dropped by water, making her face ugly.
“Young master, this little girl looks like a chicken, are you satisfied with it?” Yong Ruo asked the Young master with a smile.
Although she was wet now, there was a single garment wrapped around her body. Besides, her body had poor nutrition and poor development. She was thin, and her chest was flat like an airfield.
“I …” The Young master eyes dodged involuntarily as he dared not to look at Yong Ruo again.
He lost his calm demeanor and finally took a deep breath, sighed, and took a deep sigh towards Yong Ruo, saying with some embarrassment: “I … I’m sorry!”
Yong Ruo said, “That’s right! Being able to know your mistakes means that your nature is not bad.”
With a smile, “Young master doesn’t have to apologize! There is no such thing as gaining anything for free. To get paid extra, you have to work hard. It is this little girl who made her own claims and was willing to enter the water to earn silver. The Young master does not need to be heart-conscious and feel guilty. “‘ If I forgive him, he would feel happy, but guilty, right?’
Sure enough, the Young master was stunned by her words again, and his embarrassment became more apparent on his face, “You are generous! I … feel guilty!”
Yong Ruo said, “Since the Young master said so, this little girl talked a lot. The Young Master was born as rich and wealthy and knew less about the sufferings of the people. There are many people in the folk who are as mad as this little girl, let alone five silvers ingots just one or two silvers is enough for some people to fight with their lives. If the Young Master has no intention of taking life for pleasure, it is better not to do such things in the future, so as not to really kill someone, and feel guilty. “
He finished listening carefully in shame, and silently for the third time, said to Yong Ruol, “Girl, I will never do this kind of thing again.”
After getting five silver ingot, and giving him a lesson, Yong Ruo nodded with ease.
She held up the basket on the ground, put on her shoes, and bowed her knees again to the nobleman, “This little girl is going to change clothes, so as not to get cold. I will just leave.”
She nodded again towards the scholar behind the nobleman, turned around, and ran away—it was getting colder after she came out from the water, and then it got warmer after taking two steps.
In a small inn not far away, she got a room.
Although it took money for a room at a small inn, this small amount of money can be regarded as the cost of the business today. For the sake of resting her body, there was no need to be too picky.
At the door of the inn, Yong Ruo said, “Boss, I want a single room, prepare a bucket of hot water for me to bathe, and boil a bowl of citrus ginger soup. Then make two braziers and a few sticks to dry my clothes and hair. “
The owner of the inn was startled by her appearance, and hurriedly greeted her. He then ordered the staff to take her to the room, to give her a brazier, and prepare hot water for her to bathe.
Following the man, Yong Ruo entered her room, quickly closed the door, and took off all the wet clothes on her body. She put on a jacket and cotton-padded pants. Then jumped on the bed and wrapped the quilt around her, finally feeling a touch of warmth.
It didn’t take long before the guy sent in a brazier, a tub, hot water, and fragrant ginger soup and bowed, saying, “The tub has been washed carefully, and this is brand new. The girl can use it.”
After everything came in, Yong Ruo closed the door again, took off her cotton-padded jacket, and crawled into the tub.
She soaked her body in hot water and moaned contentedly, feeling all the tire and cold go away quickly.
When the water was slightly cold, she took a scoop of warm water and added it. When the boiled water ran out, she was warm from head to toe and uncomfortable.
Just as she was about to get up from the bathtub, she heard the voice of a middle-aged woman saying, “I am the owner of this inn. A man ordered me to bring the clothes to the girl, saying it was from a clothing store. He bought it now and paid for the girl. “
Yong Ruo was surprised, ‘The Young Master hasn’t left yet? !!’ Suddenly she thought of the unusual enthusiasm of the previous man when delivering the things she ordered, her mind was clear. “Wait a minute, I’ll come.”
She crawled out of the tub, wiped the water off of the purportedly new parchment, put on a dry jacket and quilted cotton pants, and opened the door.
Outside the door, a woman with neatly combed hair and a very nice-looking face was holding a large tray. Not only was there clothes, but also combs, bronze mirrors, and other objects.
The woman put her clothes down and went out.
Yong Ruo turned it over, and the whole set was new from the inside out. The material was excellent. Was it silk or satin? The quality was excellent; the pins were beautiful.
Yong Ruo was very satisfied and felt that tonight her good star and good fortune took the lead, which was a small fortune.
This dress was the most exquisite dress she had ever touched since she came through!
But she did not immediately wear new clothes. A stink caused by the previous clothes that hadn’t been washed, especially underclothes, was still on her body. She was afraid to wear them.
She happily put wet singles, trousers, belly bands, and the like into the tub and washed them with the still warm bathwater. After washing it with that bucket of water, wring it dry, she held them on a wooden stick and put it on a brazier.
The charcoal fire in the brazier was very strong. It didn’t take long before her clothes and hair were dried entirely.
Yong Ruo wore these old ragged shirts on her body again, and carried her bag carefully—it contained the silver ingot and the copper money she had previously earned.
