Chapter 148 : Deceiving Uncle Sheng (47)
However, Shu Nuan had never expected that Sheng Qianmo would show such childish behavior.
When she arrived at the workshop, she apologized to the wife of the shop-owner, who was also quite frank. After pulling the abacus twice on the counter, she deducted Shu Nuan’s wages and waved at her to get to work quickly.
Shu Nuan had no choice but to just go and work.
However, Li Yuan came in at this time. He pretended to look around at the cakes in the window. Then he asked the shop-owner’s wife for all the snacks that had been prepared.
The shop-owner’s wife leaned against the counter and glanced at him calmly. She could see that the other party was not dressed like some ordinary person. She knocked on the abacus and asked, “Why does this young man buys all these snacks for this big night?”
“To eat.” Li Yuan was concise and comprehensive.
The shop-owner’s wife smiled. “Are you alone?”
“Of course not. My master is happy today and wants to give it to the people under him.”
But what the shop-owner’s wife listened was that he wished to spoil someone with snacks. Only then did she nod her head with confidence and opened her mouth to shout.
“Shu Nuan, come out and pack all the snacks!”
Shu Nuan hadn’t entered the kitchen for long and now she had been called out. After washing her hands, she came out, but she hadn’t expected to see Li Yuan. She couldn’t help but ask, “Lord Li, why are you here?”
The shop-owner’s wife saw that they know each other, she could help to remind her, “It seems that I was right to hire you little girl.”
Li Yuan said with a straight face, “His Highness heard that the Li Shop made good snacks and asked his subordinates to buy them back to reward the people in the palace.”
Although Shu Nuan didn’t know what to say for a while, she still listened to the shop-owner’s wife and packed it.
After packing all the cakes made by the wife, Shu Nuann looked helplessly at Li Yuan and asked, “Lord Li, how will you take them back?”
Li Yuan gave a quick laugh.
“There is a carriage ready outside. May I ask the shop-owner’s wife, can Miss Shu Nuan come back with me?”
The shop-owner’s owner wife thought about the silver and laughed easily. “Everything is sold out, so of course you can go back ahead of time.”
Shu Nuan had to go with Li Yuan. But before leaving, she didn’t forget to go to the kitchen to pack a dessert she made by herself. After saying goodbye to the shop-owner’s wife, she waved her hand gracefully.
The shop-owner’s wife was full of joy from picking up a lucky star.
So Shu Nuan had just arrived at the workshop and was sent back again shortly afterwards.
She felt that Sheng Qianmo was too childish.
After she returned to the manor, she couldn’t help but look for Sheng Qianmo at the library. She wanted to have a good talk with him, but he already knew what she would say to him, so he promised her before she made any noise, “I will not do it the next time.”
Hearing this, Shu Nuan bit her lip. She was a little depressed, but she could not say anything more. She put the cakes brought from the Li Shop to the table. “Has Your Highness eaten?”
Sheng Qianmo opened the wrapping paper and looked at it. Seeing inside, it was covered with rose cakes with little pieces of sugar. The shape made was also the shape of roses. It was small and gorgeous, and it gave him an appetite just by looking at it.
Sheng Qianmo tasted a bit. The sweet glutinous rice smelled of roses.
When he lifted his eyes, Shu Nuan leaned on the table, holding the corner of the edge of the table with both hands, watching his look. He couldn’t help but smile. “It’s delicious. “
Shu Nuan was somewhat embarrassed and delighted.
