Gu Lin Chao did not like sweets, but could not resist the girl’s repeated soft words.
In the end, he ate one.
The sweet and sour taste filled his mouth, and he squinted his eyes somewhat uncomfortably.
“A big man still eats children’s snacks, how unbecoming ……”
Next to them was an older woman selling peaches, who said something unpleasant.
When Gu Lin Chao heard this, his handsome face blushed slightly. He was about to return the sugar gourd to Wen Qi Qi, but he saw her suddenly cross her arms and scold the lady, “What’s your business? Don’t be sour to others because you can’t eat the candy gourd yourself. I think you are the one who is unbecoming!”
Being so publicly scolded, the older woman could not lose face. She pointed at Wen Qi Qi’s nose and scolded, “I say, you are a young girl, why are you so sharp-tongued, be careful of being divorced by your in-laws in the future ……”
“At least you’re old enough to be so sharp-tongued. Don’t be disliked by your offspring and swept out of the house.” Wen Qi Qi sneered.
“You!” The older woman was so angry that her face turned red, and she picked up the pole next to her and tried to hit her.
Wen Qi Qi was not a vegetarian, so she lifted her foot and kicked the pole out of her hand, “You are so unreasonable, you are the one who caused the trouble in the first place, but you can’t beat me verbally, so you want to beat me up. You are really a disrespectful old woman. I will go to the government and sue you, so that the county magistrate can treat you well, you shrew.”
In this era, the common people are most afraid of seeing the officials, so when Wen Qi Qi said that, the lady’s face immediately changed and she stammered with a red face, “Miss, I was just joking with you, how could you go so far as to alert the county magistrate? The county magistrate is busy, will not have time to care about such a chicken ……”
“But you just drew a pole to beat someone, everyone saw it.” Wen Qi Qi frowned and reluctantly said.
The woman, seeing this, quickly grabbed some peaches from the basket and stuffed them into her hand, “These are our homegrown peaches, they are very sweet, try them, girl.”
Wen Qi Qi was stuffed with a few peaches and immediately shut up.
Well, for the sake of the peaches, she did not bother with her.
“It’s not easy to sell some peaches, but don’t talk nonsense in the future. After all, not many people are as kind and generous as I am. Today, you are lucky.” Wen Qi Qi said. She turned her head towards Gu Lin Chao and winked, “Husband, let’s go.”
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
The older woman: “……”
A group of onlookers: “……”
Seeing WenQi Qi walking far away, the older woman reacted, and the corners of her mouth twitched. Today is really unlucky, encountering such a young girl who refuses to suffer. If it were in normal times, a young girl of this age would only be talked to by her until she cried.
Even the two daughters-in-law of her family, in front of her, they are afraid to even let out a fart.
The older woman thought resentfully.
Wen Qi Qi walked beside Gu Lin Chao and said with a smile, “This peach looks fresh and juicy, it must be very sweet.”
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
He glanced at her helplessly.
He had always ordered the soldiers under him not to collect a cent from the people, but this principle, in her case, did not work at all.
Moreover, he could not even say the words of reprimand.
Thinking of this, he knitted his brows.
He felt that recently, he was a little unlike himself.
He raised his hand and rubbed his brow.
“Wang Ye, why aren’t you eating?” Wen Qi Qi suddenly said.
Gu Lin Chao came back to his senses and only then did he remember the iced sugar gourd in his hand.
“I’m not eating anymore, you can eat the rest yourself.” Gu Lin Chao said.
“Then Wang Ye feed me.” Wen Qi Qi said smoothly.
Translators Note: This is iced sugar gourd aka tanghulu. It’s pretty tasty
