At this moment, an exquisite carriage stopped outside the gate of the Su House. The curtain was engraved with a large Chinese character “Yang”, a surname. When the carter opened the curtain, a young man in golden clothes walked out immediately with a face of pride.
The young man opened his folding fan. Coupled with his handsome face, he had the temperament of a childe.
“Cousin, I came as I promised!”
The young man with big steps crossed the border of the Su House, and soon there was a sound of “ouch” in the house.
Yang Wei’s foot slipped on the ground and his mouth was bleeding. He climbed up and wiped the blood in his face, and his expression gradually distorted.
“Fuck! Who sprinkle the lime on the ground? It tastes like sticky rice cake!”
Su Erya rubbed her nose and felt a little strange, “Who’s talking about me?”
Inside the hall.
When Su Huanli saw Yang Wei who had a swollen face, he said with smile, “You must be careful. If your face hurts, you will be in trouble. Do you come today to return the night-luminescent pearl?”
Yang Wei’s face was not red, and he held out a fist and said, “Uncle, don’t make fun of me. The night-luminescent pearl is the property of the county magistrate. I don’t have it! I came here for a marriage proposal.”
Su Huanli’s smile froze. He held Yang Wei’s fists slowly and said, “What do you mean, my nephew?”
Yang Wei did not seem to notice that he displeased Su Huanli. He continued, “Last year, I fell in love with Zipei, and I hope that you can agree.”
Su Huanli slammed the table and shouted, “Little bastard, you stole my treasure last year, which made my son waste a year of his career. How dare you come here to propose a marriage? Get out!”
Yang Wei stood up as if he was apologizing, but his expression was still cold and proud. He smiled and said, “Don’t be impulsive. You’d do better to see the betrothal presents brought by me.”
Su Huanli was not angry. His brows were slightly raised, and he slowly said, “If they aren’t good, you can never marry my daughter.”
Yang Wei was confident and proudly said, “I believe that as long as you see them, you will agree.”
After one hour, Su Huanli’s face was complicated. Yang Wei held his fist out proudly and said, “Since you agree, I will go back and tell my parents now.”
Su Huanli immediately got up and smiled.
Yang Wei was inferior to Qingtan in literacy and martial arts. There was lots of young talent in the County Town. It was not surprising that this idiot failed the examination. However, he was only lucky that he knew some officers in the County Town and sought a supervisor title, so things could always change .
The news of Yang Wei’s arrival was passed to the West Courtyard next morning.
“What? Why didn’t my cousin come to see me?” Su Zipei jumped up from the bed with surprise. She planned to put on make up and go out. But the maids told her that Yang Wei had left, and she felt sad. Did the cousin forget the agreement between them?
Zhu Yan frowned and scolded in her heart.
“Useless waste! He actually failed the first test in the County Town. I thought that I could contact the rich and powerful families in Yunjing through him to explore the origins of the jade. It seems that there is no chance.”
Nanny Li also heard the news and said to Su Erya. Su Erya was not surprised. She said, “The result of the first test in County Town has come out. Cousin Yang Wei did not go to Yunjing. I assumed he failed.”
Nanny Li heard these words and felt strange. She said, “It should be. It is said that Master Yang’s talent is far less than Master Tan’s. Yet...Master Yang seems not sad but happy right now.”
Su Erya was silent. Her eyes were as deep as the sea.
Since she was born again, she had only changed the fate of the eldest brother. In her previous life, the Su Family didn’t have the ability to bribe Li Shanbao. The position finally was filled by the master in the Zhu Family. The eldest brother was selected only in the third year.
Yang Wei curried favor with the little master of satrap. He got a supervisor title in Qinghe County. Li Shanbao was always threatened by him. In the end, he lost the Baiwei Restaurant in order to keep his position.
Now it seemed that Yang Wei would marry Su Zipei in a few days.
Su Erya curled her lips perfectly. She had been waiting for this for a long time.
“Nanny Li, prepare a carriage for me. I want to go to the county,” Su Erya suddenly said.
Nanny Li first hesitated, then nodded agreeably with surprise, “Miss, you are finally willing to go out. The summer is coming. You even don’t have some nice clothes. You should buy some, and……”
Nanny Li went out with nagging. Her eyes were moist. This was the first time that Second Miss would go out. In the past, the Second Miss didn’t get enough to eat under the clutches of the First Madam. How hard it was!
Before long, Nanny Li came back happily, followed by Butler Li.
“Second Miss goes out shopping for the first time. In order to ensure safety, I have arranged two guards to follow. Be careful. If you are in danger, run to the Baicao Tang.”
Su Erya nodded, “Thank you. Erya will be careful.\
Li Yin’s eyes flashed and he nodded with a smile. From the surface, he really couldn’t see whether this girl had accepted the inheritance of Qi Xianqing or not.
The driver yelled all the way, and the noises outside became gradually louder in a short period of time.
“Second Miss, the morning bazaar is still being held. We made it. There are too many people on the road. The carriage can’t drive. You had better get off early!” The driver of the Su Family suggested carefully. He was with Second Miss for the first time. He didn’t know her temper.
Hearing these words, Su Erya opened the curtain of the carriage, glanced at the bazaar and softly said, “It is time to get off. The road is crowded. If the road is filled by our carriage, it will seem like we are bullies.”
Su Erya then got off quickly. She was a little shaken, Nanny Li held her.
The driver was a little surprised. His impression of Su Erya was now improved. The Second Miss was so kind. If she were the Third Miss, the driver would definitely be scolded. She would ask him to push through the crowd.
Su Erya asked the driver to wait here. She and Nanny Li went into the bazaar along the street. Their glamorous clothes immediately separated them from the ordinary people, and they caught many people’s attention.
“Where does this miss come from? She looks so beautiful like a fairy!”
“If I can marry such a wife, I would give my life for it!”
“Go to hell! Dream on!”
“I know that old Nanny. She is from the Su Family. Is that Miss Su Zipei?”
“I saw Su Zipei. She is not as beautiful...”
The whispered discussions were covered by the market noises, but some drifted into Nanny Li’s ears. She whispered with a smile, “Miss, they are all saying that you are beautiful.”
Su Erya’s face was red and she stamped her foot slightly, “Hey, stop making fun of me.”
This coquetry suddenly attracted a lot of people’s attention. Looking dumb, many even hit other people.
“Who hit me?”
“Who are you talking about?”
“It’s you, little tramp!”
“I will beat you, son of bitch...”
There was chaos. Nanny Li quickly pulled Su Erya to leave. They ran to the east street which was less crowded.
“Hey, look at it. It is Baiwei Restaurant. I’ve wanted to visit it for a long time.” Su Erya’s eyes became bright. She dumped Nanny Li who was taking a rest and went into the restaurant.
Nanny Li took a breath and followed up, “Miss, wait for me.”
As for the two guards, they were separated in the bazaar.
In the morning, the Baiwei Restaurant was quite cold, and only few residents were enjoying their breakfasts. As soon as Su Erya sat down, a smart waiter ran to her and said with enthusiasm, “What would you like to order? Our restaurant is famous for its delicious food.”
Su Erya's eyes lighted up, “What signature dishes are?”
The waiter immediately replied, “Of course! Recently, the delicious food of our Baiwei Restaurant is the Fragrant Rice! Do you want to have a try?”
“Serve two dishes of Fragrant Rice and all the other signature dishes.”
“Got it. Wait a moment, madam!”
After the waiter left, Nanny Li just climbed on the second floor. When she saw Su Erya run quickly, she complained, “Second Miss, wait for me. I am old. I can’t run quickly.”
“I know.” Li Su softly said, “Nanny Li must be tired. Sit down and rest for a moment. I ordered a lot of food.”
“Second Miss, you ordered too much food. There’re only you and me. If we don’t eat everything, much will be wasted.”
“Don’t worry. If we can’t eat everything, we can take them away.”
Now, Nanny Li was even more worried.
“The dishes are coming!” the waiter yelled and brought the dishes.
When Nanny Li saw the dishes on the tray, she was astonished.
“Guests, these ten dishes are the signature dishes of our restaurant! They are Roasted Wild Pigs with Spiced Taste, Kung Pao Chicken, Golden Fish Strings...Fragrant Rice!”
After a short time, the square table was full. Su Erya ate with relish. With a bitter smile, Nanny Li thought that now that the Second Miss had started to eat, they couldn’t return them. So she just slurped them!
While they were eating, Nanny Li saw that the Second Miss was really wasting the food. She only took one or two bites from every dish.
Su Erya tasted the last dish of wild pig and took a sip of tea, looking placid.
Baiwei Restaurant dominated restaurants of this small county with its capital advantage. Even if these dishes were ordered in the County Town, they could attract many customers. However, they were far worse than various dishes she learned from her husband in her previous life.
Su Erya smiled, her eyes falling on the Fragrant Rice. Nanny Li just put a piece into her mouth.
Immediately Nanny Li’s eyes widened, and she whispered in amazement, “Miss, these... aren’t these your Zongzi? How did they become the signature dish of Baiwei Restaurant?”
The Fragrant Rice in the plate was multiple rice balls with complex decoration. It was hard to see the cooking methods. The appearance of Fragrant Rice was quite different from that of Zongzi, but its taste was delicious!
Moreover, this small dish only contained a rice roll of Zongzi, but it was sold at a price as high as one or two taels of silver. How huge the profit was!
