Nan Yan began to wander in this small town called Nan’an.
The local conditions and customs here were indeed different from those of Jinling. Many people were wearing outlandish clothes that she had never seen before. They were bright and colorful. Obviously it was the attire of Yue Country.
What these people were trading was very special and of course, what she had been seeing something special too. For example, colorful silk processed through several silk shops. They were all made by Yue Country. The satin inside seemed to be similar to that used by the harem in the palace.
However, Nan Yan was not very interested in these things. She only watched them for a while, then stopped in front of a small vendor’s stall.
She saw something familiar at the stall. A red bracelet. Then she held out her hand and picked it up.
The young man immediately smiled:
“Does the girl like it? Buy one.”
“This kind of red lucky bracelet, young girls like you look best with it.”
Nan Yan didn’t speak, only seriously looked at the red coral bracelet.
The string Ye Zheng gave her earlier was somewhat similar. No wonder she saw it at a glance, but it was not made of coral beads.
“What kind of bracelet are these? ”
The vendor said:
“These are not bracelets, these are Longevity Bracelet.”
“These are Longevity Bracelet?”
“Yes, look how beautiful the brilliant red color is.”
It’s really very beautiful.
Nan Yan held it in her hand and looked at it carefully for a while. It was really similar to the red coral bracelet. In fact, she really liked the red coral bracelet, she had liked it when she got it for the first time. She was fond of the curious coincidence. So even if Ye Zheng was being mysterious and didn’t say anything about its origin. She would have taken it as being out of the ordinary and found a jewelry box to put it in.
But she didn’t expect——
She looked up and asked:
“How much is it?”
“Not expensive, 10 taels.”
It’s really not expensive. Nan Yan immediately reached her hand into her bosom, but once she felt around. Oh, no!
She forgot to bring money out with her.
At this moment, a familiar gentle voice came from behind:
“Nan Yan, what are you looking at?”
Looking back, Jian Ruocheng, who looked particularly elegant, natural, and unrestrained in black robes, happened to come over. Nan Yan was somewhat embarrassed and was about to put the string back, but the vendor understood it immediately and said:
“This girl wants to buy this bracelet.”
Nan Yan hurriedly said:
“No, I won’t buy it.”
Jian Ruocheng came over and looked at the bracelet in her hand. He smiled and said:
“It’s very beautiful and suitable for you. Why don’t you buy it?”
The vendor said hastily:
“Yes, I also said it was suitable for this girl. The people here all look tanned. It’s not nice to wear such a bright color. This girl has a fair complexion. It’s just in line with such a bright color.”
Nan Yan plainly looked at him:
“You know so much.”
“Of course, I have been in this business for more than a decade. I can see at a glance which girl is suitable to wear something.”
Nan Yan was so angry that she couldn’t say a word.
Jian Ruocheng smiled and said:
“The boss is right. This stuff is very suitable for you.”
Nan Yan said with embarrassment:
“I – I don’t have any money.”
The vendor lamented “ah”, but immediately, his shrewd little eyes caught sight of Jian Ruocheng looking thoughtfully at the red acacia bracelet and stretching out his hand to take out his purse.
Nan Yan looked anxious, she said hastily:
“Jian, don’t, I won’t buy it.”
Jian Ruocheng said with a smile:
“I know what you are afraid of. I’ll lend you the money and you can return it to me later,”
” Yes,” he said with a smile:
“Nan Yan, sometimes you can’t hesitate with what you like. If you hesitate, you miss it. If you miss it, you can only blame yourself.”
