Chapter 75: Mo Beihan, Why Are You Here?
There were more varieties of goods in the city’s department store.
Gu Qingyao walked around and decided to buy something that was unique to this generation. It would be more convenient if she wanted to use them in the future.
She first went to buy some cloth. Her family was huge. The little brothers grew taller every year but the clothes they were wearing were all from their elder brothers. Some were modified adult clothes. They rarely had any new clothes.
Gu Qingyao bought quite a lot of cloth. Most were simple cotton cloth which was common in this generation.
She also bought two pretty beaver cloth with grid patterns. Since she had enough money, she did not hesitate to purchase them.
She also bought some milk powder that was the children’s favorite.
She then went to buy Maotai Spirit. Men in the family all liked to drink this alcohol. Six bottles of Maotai and ten packets of Daqianmen cigarettes cost Gu Qingyao a huge amount of money.
The spirit and the cigarettes were really expensive. She was so rich but she still felt that she did not have enough money.
Eventually, she was left with a few hundred dollars which could buy an imported watch.
She contemplated for a while and decided to buy one as a present when her brothers came back. Though she did not have enough money now to buy one for every brother, she would slowly earn money in order to get one for everyone.
She was left only with a little amount of money after shopping. She took a few rounds in the black market again and received two hundred dollars.
It was 3:30 pm and Gu Qingyao decided to head back. She would reach home by the evening.
She placed the basket back into her interspace, carried a bag in her hand and was ready to go back.
When she was about to leave, she suddenly heard a familiar voice behind her. Gu Qingyao stunned and turned back. Mo Beihan pushed his bicycle and walked towards her.
‘What a coincidence that Brother Beihan is here as well?’
She was wearing different clothes but did not disguise her appearance. She just used her scarf to cover her face.
Mo Beihan walked over and said, “It’s really you. I thought it might be you from far. Why did you come to the city?”
Gu Qingyao lowered her head and did not respond.
“What’s the matter?”
Gu Qingyao looked up and glanced at him but still did not say anything.
She was in a bad mood as she was caught doing something bad.
Mo Beihan felt peculiar as he stared at Gu Yunshen. He saw Gu Yunshen and the family taking an ox cart and headed towards the town. He did not greet them as he was busy.
He then came to the city.
He remembered that Yao Yao was in a different set of clothes in the morning. Did she change her clothes?
Furthermore, why was she alone in the city?
If she came with someone else, she would say it directly. Now, there was no response from her which meant that she came alone.
How did she manage to come here?
Why did she come here?
It was not likely that she walked here as it would take a few hours from the town.
Mo Beihan stared at her and did not question further.
“Going back? Let’s go back together.”
Gu Qingyao did not know how to reject him and she did not want to lie to him. She nodded and sat at the back of his bicycle.
But Mo Beihan asked her to sit in front.
They slowly left the city and were getting nearer to the town, then to the Qing River Brigade. Gu Qingyao pinched the side of her clothes and was slightly nervous.
