Chapter 41: Why Is This Bun So Familiar?
Gu Qingyao was in excellent spirits as she rode the bicycle!
The village looked different in the moonlight.
In her previous life, she had left the place decades ago. Now that she had returned, the feeling was completely different.
"Are you cold?" asked Mo Beihan, who was behind her.
Gu Qingyao shook her head. "No. The wind is so cooling, it's pleasant to feel the breeze."
The two of them gradually left the Qing River Brigade and the village, and reached a desolate spot.
Gu Qingyao asked, "Brother Beihan, have you had breakfast?"
"Then stop, and I'll give you something to eat. We can continue after you've eaten."
Mo Beihan stopped the bicycle and Gu Qingyao took two meat buns from her bag. Actually, she took them from her interspace. She handed them to Mo Beihan and said, "Here, eat this!"
Mo Beihan looked at the meat buns in shock. "Did you make these?"
"Um!" Gu Qingyao nodded. "Eat up! They're delicious."
Mo Beihan had his suspicions, but took a bite without asking any more questions.
The meat bun was delicious. The filling was well seasoned and the outer skin was very soft. It was made of pure white flour.
But more importantly, the taste… was very familiar!
Whenever Gu Qingyao had made buns for him in her previous life, they had tasted like that. But this was impossible!
At that time, Yao Yao had the interspace. He had brought her around and collected a lot of food. But Yao Yao would only discover her interspace half a year later. At this time, Yao Yao should not know about the interspace.
So these buns…
Mo Beihan did not ask any more questions. He just finished the buns and continued towards the town with Gu Qingyao.
Dawn was breaking as they reached the town.
Gu Qingyao could tell that the town was rather shabby at present. It was mainly composed of low-lying brick houses and a few stone houses.
Mo Beihan led her straight to a door, and knocked.
The door immediately opened.
An 18- or 19-year-old boy, who looked especially lively, smiled the moment he saw Mo Beihan. His eyes were sharp and incisive.
Mo Beihan pushed the bicycle into the courtyard, and brought the basket with him into the house. The young fellow hospitably poured tea for Mo Beihan and Gu Qingyao.
Mo Beihan placed the basket on the table. "Take a look!"
The young fellow was called Chen Jin. He removed the cloth covering the basket. His eyes brightened the moment he saw its contents.
"Wow! Elder Brother, you are so capable!"
The basket was filled with things that he had obtained from his trip up the mountain.
There were two haunches of wild boar meat, each weighing about ten kilograms. There were five kilograms or so of pork ribs, and two pork legs. There were four pork knuckles, and two dried rabbits.
Right at the bottom was a metal box. This box was rather large and deep. Next to it was the head of the wild boar.
It was almost the new year. Many people would want these things.
Chen Jin was overjoyed!
Mo Beihan said, "There are fish in the metal box. Six grass carp, which are still alive!"
Chen Jin hurriedly opened the box in surprise. He was delighted to find that there were indeed grass carp in there, looking quite lively. "This is great. I know someone who is about to do her confinement, and needs this!"
In his line of business, he had many connections and knew many important people. Everyone knew what line he was in. If they wanted anything special, they would contact him.
He had recently added a well-to-do family to his books. The daughter-in-law was about to do her confinement and needed better food to improve her milk supply and her health.
"Elder Brother, I'll take all these things. What would you like?" Chen Jin looked at Mo Beihan, his face wreathed in smiles.
